Soccer star Hope Solo and her 'Dancing With the Stars' partner Maks Chmerkovskiy recently ribbed each other during an appearance on 'Good Day LA,' a local talk show in Los Angeles (video below). Solo said that she tried putting Maks in goal, but his jeans were too tight for him to move quickly. Solo also shared that when they first met, she told him Maks he was "the girliest man" she'd ever met.

Solo did pay Maks a compliment, though, saying she was genuinely glad he was her coach, because she needs "somebody direct and competitive." The two have managed to avoid elimination on 'Dancing with the Stars' so far. Last week, singer Chynna Phillips bit the dust and, later, called the dance competition a "popularity contest."
