"The word on the street is that you guys are very affectionate and perhaps it's more than just dancing between the two of you," Host Wendy Williams asked the pair during a Friday appearance on her The Wendy Williams Show. "Are you guys a couple?"
"We've been dancing together, so yeah, we're a dancing couple," Chmerkovskiy slyly replied.
"It was very passionate. I could never look at my [previous Dancing with the Stars professional partner Tony Dovolani] when I was dancing the way that you guys look at each other," Williams insisted.
"You know what? We had our moments where we did not get along," Monaco, a soap star, explained. "They just cut it and edit to the way where you just saw the good stuff I guess."
Following Chmerkovskiy and Monaco's evasive response, the show's live audience laughed in skepticism.
"What?!" Monaco jokingly said in apparent frustration.
