Hope Solo Says 'DWTS' Is Rigged & Makes Herself Look Like a Sore Loser (VIDEO)

Hope SoloYou'd think being an Olympic athlete would've taught her a thing or two about being a team player, but now that Hope Solo is saying Dancing With the Stars is rigged, it's pretty obvious that she's kind of a spoiled brat when it comes to losing.

In her new book, Solo: A Memoir of Hope, she claims that DWTS producers are actually the ones who determine who is going home each week instead of the viewers' votes. She recalled one incident in particular and wrote:

Maks later told me that he had argued with the judges because he had been told we were going to be eliminated, that there was some secret memo going around that said who would be ousted each week. He explained that he wanted to cause some drama on the live portion of the show so that they wouldn’t be able to resist keeping us around, hoping for more fireworks. It seems to have worked -- we weren’t eliminated that week.

Wow. There she goes throwing Maksim Chmerkovskiy under the bus again. Seriously, why does she have such a huge bone to pick with this dude? First she accuses Maks of slapping her during rehearsals, and now he's trying to pull a fast one on the judges and producers too? (Dude just can't catch a break with this chick.)

Other than her accusations, there is no evidence to support the idea of Dancing With the Stars being rigged or fake. And honestly, why would ABC be stupid enough to set up all those phone lines and accept votes from viewers each week if they didn't intend on tallying them up to determine who goes home?

And understandably, sources say DWTS producers are none-too-pleased with her comments, and think she made them simply to try and sell more copies of her book.

It's entirely possible that pushing book sales was part of her motive, but I'm guessing it has more to do with having a bruised ego than anything else. I mean, the girl is an Olympic soccer player, so it's not like she's a stranger to the world of competition. She went on Dancing With the Stars to win, and since she didn't take home the mirror ball trophy, it appears that she's out for some serious revenge -- and she doesn't care who she hurts in the process. (So lame.)

Get a load of this video clip of Hope being interviewed by Chelsea Handler. She just can't seem to resist running her mouth.

Do you think there's a chance she's telling the truth? Is DWTS rigged?
