During a Thursday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, talk show host Wendy Williams noted how much sexual chemistry Davis and Chmerkovskiy displayed onstage during Dancing with the Stars' eighteenth season. She then bluntly asked the couple whether they're "smooshing" -- a term Jersey Shore's stars had used to describe having sex.
"I have no idea what [smooshing] means," Chmerkovskiy said. "What does that mean?"
"I know, I have no idea what that means," Davis added.
"Are you having sex?" Williams asked flat out.
"Oh!" Davis replied in shock and disbelief.
"Are you boyfriend and girlfriend, or lovers, or anything?" Williams pushed.
"We are not dating," Davis confirmed.
"You're not dating?" Williams clarified.
"No," Davis noted.
"Do you have a boyfriend?" Williams asked the Sochi Olympics ice dancing gold medalist.

Chmerkovskiy then added they "needed" to be romantic onstage in order to achieve the full effect of their dances.
After Tuesday night's Dancing with the Stars finale, Chmerkovskiy told Entertainment Tonight he didn't think he'd be returning to the show as a pro dancer next season because it was "exhausting." However, serving as a judge on Dancing with the Stars' nineteenth season may be a different story.
"I understand judge [Len Goodman] is leaving. If they offered you a judge job, would you take it?" Williams asked Chmerkovskiy.
"Yeah," he simply replied.
Chmerkovskiy, who has already appeared on Dancing with the Stars as a guest judge, then insisted he's a fair and qualified judge.
"I'm not a nice judge. I'm a good judge. I judge the way it's supposed to be. I know this business, I've been in it, I grew up in it. Somebody asked me yesterday why I started dancing, and I once again thought about it. I was four-years-old. Who knows why. So spending 30 years in an industry I think I've done a little bit in, I know what I'm talking about -- unlike some of the guest judges we had this season," Chmerkovskiy explained, seemingly referencing Abby Lee Miller, who had rubbed him the wrong way this season.
