Are Maksim Chmerkovskiy And Peta Murgatroyd Dating? (VIDEO)

Bethenny Frankel was on the subject of dating when "Dancing With The Stars" pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy stopped by her show "Bethenny" Friday. She asked the dancing pro what he looks for in a lady, and Maks said he appreciates when a lady makes the first move to strike up a conversation. Apparently, the reality TV hunk is too shy to make the first move.

"I respect that, if somebody comes over to me and starts the conversation. I would never come up, because I'm shy, I'm like trembling inside."

Bethenny took the opportunity to question Maksim about his rumored romance with fellow "DWTS" cast mate, Peta Murgatroyd. The two have been photographed getting close in the tabloids lately, but Maks played coy when Bethenny asked him to confirm if they were dating. He did drop one big hint, though.

"But she came up first," he said. It took Bethenny a few seconds to realize what he meant, but eventually she got the message.
