Kelly Monaco Calls Mirror Ball Trophy “Stupid,” Wishes People Would Shut Up About Her and Val

Kelly Monaco has a sharp, dry sense of humor and it's easy to hear, or just read, her words and think she's a wee bit prickly. But that just seems to be her no BS style — she's raw and real, and doesn't seem that upset about losing Dancing With the Stars All-Stars to Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani. Kelly, who already won Season 1, and her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy took third place on last night’s Season 15 Grand Finale.

Kelly told E! News there's nothing to be disappointed about in taking third on an All-Stars season like this. “We were all winners,” Kelly said. “Melissa didn't have one of those stupid mirror balls, and Val is young enough, he has enough seasons left in him. I think Tony deserved it, he's been here probably one of the longest."

But one thing she's really sick of is the question about whether she and Val are a real couple or just a showmance. Even though they openly played up that question all season, Kelly said she hopes people will now "shut up and stop asking" about their personal lives. "I just got offered $50,000 to tell a story of what this is," Kelly told E! of herself and Val. And she turned down the money! That's how private she's planning to keep this.

So maybe we should stop hoping for more details than their talk about "unconditional love" and "friendship." Besides, Jerry Rice pretty much summed up the did-they-or-didn’t-they speculation last night on DanceCenter: "They definitely did."
