Val Chmerkovskiy reveals Lara Spencer called him after ballet backlash

Moving on. Val Chmerkovskiy was one of many professional dancers to take to social media following Lara Spencer’s recent comment on Good Morning America when she appeared to mock Prince George for taking ballet classes. The Dancing With the Stars pro, 33, wrote a long Instagram post on August 23 with a story and the hashtag “BoysDanceToo.”

However, he doesn’t hold a grudge against the TV host, 50, he told Us Weekly exclusively in a new interview — especially since she called him personally to apologize.

“I’m not defending her by any stretch of the imagination but she definitely reached out to the dance community, myself included,” he said on Thursday, September 5. “She called me and she was so devastated by the reaction and by what she’d done and she owned up to it and she apologized. I don’t think her intentions were to belittle his love for ballet.”
