Did ‘Dancing' Lead to Love for Willa Ford?
October 11, 2006

They look like a couple, they dance like a couple, and they even fight like a couple.

So, when Willa Ford and her "Dancing with the Stars" partner, Maksim, visited the "Extra" dance floor, we had to get the dish: are they or aren't they a couple?

"No!" Willa said. "We're dancing; we're on a strict dancing schedule right now, we are not a couple," Willa told us. 

While we should believe Willa, we only bought half the story. Especially after Tuesday's sexy video of the couple on the beach, when Willa admitted, "Things have changed; we have reached a turning point. I think we both got more than we bargained for when we signed up with this show."

Despite their denial, Willa and Maksim's sexy samba even made Judge Carrie Ann Inaba wonder.

"If you guys aren't going out, you should," Carrie said.

So once the show wraps, will Willa and Maksim find time for love?

"We might kill each other," Willa joked.

"I'm really hoping to get to know her outside of the show," Maksim added.

For now, the 26-year-old pop star and her non-boyfriend Maksim Chmerkovskiy are just determined to prove they are the top contenders for the "Dancing" title.

Find out if Willa and Maksim make it to the next round on Wednesday night's results show on ABC.
