Will Vanessa Lachey and Maks Chmerkovskiy's feud affect their success on Dancing With The Stars? For now, they're playing nice and trying to work through their tension. But some insiders are skeptical.

Maks mysteriously missed last week's DWTS. Erin Andrews quickly dismissed the absence as a "personal issue." Yet the whole situation seemed odd, especially since it didn't appear to be a family emergency. Maks' brother Val Chmerkovskiy and wife Peta Murgatroyd didn't miss the show.
