Talk shows are having their say into Monday’s feud between Maks Chmerkovskiy and “Dancing With the Stars” judge Len Goodman after Maks proclaimed that it was his show, following Goodman’s negative critique of his dance with Hope Solo.

Goodman told “Access Hollywood Live” that Maks was regretting his words, stating “How often, in the heat of the moment, we say things that the next day we think ‘why did I say that? Maks is going through that right now.”

Meanwhile the ladies of “The View” chimed in on Maks’ comments. After hitting the video to review what went down, Sherri Shepherd seemed to side with Maks, noting, “This show was made not only by the judges, but by the professional dancers as well because they have fan bases as well.”



Whoopi Goldberg quickly defended Len.

“Regular fans, if they do their homework which I’m sure they do because they want to know who these people are too, will see that this is what he does, this is what Len does. Now if this was Dancing With the Stars with any old kind of music, then Len would not have a leg to stand on.”
