No bad blood!

Maksim Chmerkovskiy told PEOPLE at the 2017 Maxim Halloween Party in Los Angeles on Saturday that things with his Dancing With the Stars partner Vanessa Lachey “were never bad.”

“It’s a tough show,” he said, adding that everybody on the competition series is under a lot of stress. “And when you’re good enough to make it all the way, you go through that much more stuff. We’re a great couple. We’re doing our best. She’s giving me all the time that she should, and I can’t wait for this Monday to show what we’ve been working on.”

Rumors of drama between the DWTS pair swirled after Chmerkovskiy skipped a performance early in the competition. At the time, DWTS co-host Erin Andrews told viewers his absence was due to a “personal issue” but sources told PEOPLE the couple had been “bickering” since the beginning of the competition and that he chose to sit out due to a clash between their “big personalities.”

However, Chmerkovskiy later publicly apologized to Lachey on Twitter saying, “As you are all aware, I had to leave the show last week to take care of some personal issues. I take full responsibility for my absence. And want to apologize to my partner Vanessa. We are both looking forward to dancing for our fans next week!”

PEOPLE’s special issue 25 Seasons of Dancing with the Stars is on stands now

While this isn’t the first time Chmerkovskiy has been rumored to clash with his DWTS counterpart — in 2015 he told The Real that his season 13 partner, soccer star Hope Solo, is “literally the only person that I could dislike from my past, present or future” — an insider insisted that he and Lachey are a unified pair.

“Maks and Vanessa are a team and completely support each other 100 percent,” the insider told PEOPLE. “They are so friendly backstage and are great to work with. You can tell they are genuinely enjoying themselves and are here to have a good time.”

Sure enough, Lachey relied on Chmerkovskiy for comfort during last Monday’s emotional elimination.

When it was announced that her husband, Nick Lachey, was not in jeopardy of elimination for the first time in three weeks, Vanessa threw herself into Chmerkovskiy’s arms. He enveloped her and held her until the entire cast moved to say goodbye to Gleb Savchenko and Sasha Pieterse.

Chmerkovskiy and Lachey will return Monday (8 p.m. ET) to the ballroom for Movie Night on the ABC reality dance competition.

Sophia Bush has long used her social media feeds as a place to voice her feelings on hot-button issues like the presidential election and gun control. But in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, she’s spoken up even more about women’s rights and the harassment so many females face on a daily basis.

That’s why the timing was so perfect for Bush to serve as keynote speaker of the Create & Cultivate conference‘s Second Annual Style Summit (in partnership with Simon Malls) in Houston on Saturday, a get-together for women looking to make bold moves in their careers and personal lives.

Ahead of the conference — which was planned before Harvey hit the Texas city and raised funds for the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund — Bush spoke to PEOPLE about the organization and her passion for women’s rights.

“Even in ‘advanced’ countries, women are ignored, passed over, mistreated and subjugated at rates that are unacceptable,” she said. “It’s impossible not to feel frustrated when you look at the data that shows us this unfortunate reality. And until those numbers change, I’ll be rallying around, and for, women. We shouldn’t have to work so hard just to get to the starting line. The starting line should be the same for all of us.”

The actress recently shared her own #metoo story following the Weinstein allegations, and said she believes the words ‘me too’ are “the two most powerful words in the English language. If we can use them as a bridge to join hands with other women and create authentic support systems for one another, we can do anything. Being there for other women. Believing other women. Standing up for other women. Showing up for other women. It starts there.”
