For Maks’ 35th birthday, I wanted to bring in all the ladies from Seasons 2 through to 18, and dance the beautiful Foxtrot: Tia Carrere (Movie/TV Actress - Wk 4) / Willa Ford (Singer - Wk 1) / Laila Ali (Retired Pro Boxer & TV Personality - Wk 1) / Melanie Brown (Spice Girls lead singer, AGT Judge - Wk 7) / Misty May-Treanor (Olympic Volleyball Pro - Wk 1) / Erin Andrews (ESPN Sportscaster/DWTS Co-Host - Wk 2) / Brandy Norwood (Singer/Actress - Wk 7) / Kirstie Alley (Actress - Wk 5) / Hope Solo (Soccer Athlete - Wk 2) / Melissa Gilbert (Actress - Wk 8) / Kirstie Alley (Actress - Wk 1) / Meryl Davis (2014 Olympic Bronze Medal/DWTS 18 Champ with Maks - Wk 3). The only two who haven’t done the Foxtrot are Denise Richards (Season 3) and Debi Mazar (Season 9, was in a very short Foxtrot Relay with Maks in Wk 3, but not long enough to put on here).
Happy Birthday, Maks, and I hope you have a wonderful year ahead, filled with much success, love and happiness.
Who knows what will come next, but to us, you have definitely: “kept our hearts chained”, continue to give us “magic” on & off the dance floor, “took off your hat” (and more!), and have “put a spell on us!”
With love, respect and admiration
