The Dancing with the Stars contestants got their rock ‘n roll on tonight.  It was a sea of black satin, big hair, and lame fauxhawks.  And no season of DWTS is ever complete without at least a half a dozen injuries or so.  Oh, and pretend “groupies” gyrating on the judges table.

Brooke Burke really got into the spirit of the night with some huge ’80’s hair that would make Dee Snider jealous.

Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus tried their hardest to dance to a difficult song, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, which the judges gave them credit for attempting, but they weren’t impressed.  Carrie Ann didn’t think it came together well and their posture wasn’t strong enough.  I gave them an extra point for Gladys’ costume!

Cheryl Burke and William Levy received stern words about their goofs, which included a fumble or two that threw off their rhythm and caused them to go on too long. Carrie Ann told them they needed to stay focused.

Chelsea Hightower and Roshon Fegan gave it their all and the judges were thrilled.  Carrie Ann gushed that she thinks Roshon is the best dancer among this season’s men.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough danced an incredible tango to “School’s Out”, despite Maria’s foot injury.  Maria was a trooper and never let us see how much pain she is in, but all Len could muster for her was a “just pretty good”.  Carrie Ann was blown away by their chemistry.  Derek did his best to get a few sympathy votes by carrying Maria upstairs for their score reveal.

Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff drew criticism for the form/posture, dancing to ‘Paint it Black’.

The top scorers of the evening, Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd kicked up the heat in a paso doble to Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze”.  The judges were blown away, with Carrie Ann Inaba dubbing it “psychedelic, bizarre, sexy, raunchy, hot. One of the most memorable moments.”

Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy disappeared after their performance because Melissa needed to be seen for an injury and it couldn’t wait.  From updates shared this morning, Melissa was suffering from whiplash and a concussion.

I don’t know about you, but this season is just a little ho-hum for me.  It needs a shake up.  Get some Housewives on there.  An entire contestant lineup of just Housewives.

Well, it looks like Lamar Odom just freed up some time in his schedule to devote to filming his reality shows Khloe & Lamar and Keeping up with the Kardashians.  It was announced this morning that after four months, he’s stepping down from playing pro basketball for the Dallas Mavericks.

“The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team. I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”

I won’t pretend to understand a thing about pro athlete contracts, but does this mean he still gets paid even though he’s not playing?

Jersey Shore star ‘The Situation‘ may be out of rehab, but it seems that his problems are far from over.  Reportedly, the reality star is not only battling an addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs, but some darker addictions as well – like sex and fame, sources say.

This week’s print edition of Reality Weekly claims that The Situation is in a spiral and it’s all taking a toll on him, despite his seeking helping at the Cirque Lodge in Utah.  A friend tells the magazine that “Mike projects this image that he’s in love with himself, but inside, he’s really fragile and insecure. He has a really dark side and a lot of demons, which is why he developed a problem with addictions”.

The friend claims that Mike has to drink in order to feel comfortable in social settings and that he beds multiple women in an attempt to boost his fragile ego. “He gets such an ego boost if a woman wants to sleep with him.  He’s always trying to top himself; how many girls he can have at once, how many Miss Hawaiian Tropic models he can sleep with, how many different girls he can have in one day. ”

Last night’s episode of Shahs of Sunset gave us a glimpse into Reza Farahan’s daddy issues, Sammy Younai’s creative math abilities, and Golnessa “GG” Gharachedaghi’s aversion to poor people’s clothes.  Also, what happens in Vegas comes back to haunt you, repeatedly.

The episode starts out with GG and Asa Soltan Rahmati taking a stab at being friends.  Asa decides she wants to expand GG’s horizons (in case daddy really does cut off her credit cards?) and takes her to her favorite resale clothing boutique, Decades.  GG admits that she’s not a fan of vintage clothing and says that you just can’t get rid of the stench from “used clothing”.  In GG’s world, vintage = peasant rash.

ASA and GG dish about Mercedes “MJ” Javid’s rude behavior, showing up three hours late for the party GG threw for her parents’ 40th anniversary.  GG is happy that Asa agrees with her that it was disrespectful.  MJ was right last week, the wrath of GG IS coming.

We get to meet Reza’s mom! He explains how hard she worked and gave him unconditional love after his dad left. Reza talks about his upcoming trip to NY to see his dad for the first time in several years.  His mom brings out some pictures from Reza’s childhood.  Reza’s mom was Muslim and his dad was Jewish, which was a scandalous relationship at the time.  His dad had to convert to Islam and his family was furious.  Reza’s parents never stood a chance because they had so much pressure coming from both sides of the family.

Over at GG’s condo, she and her friend Tahira get ready for girls night.  Here comes the crazy! You know Girls Night in GG’s hood is code for Golnesa Gone Loco up in someone’s face, at some point in the evening.  GG vows that won’t be the case and if there’s any sign of impending drama, she swears it’ll be the end of her night.  She doesn’t put that in writing.

The ambassador of abstinence is back and heading to a television near you…maybe.  Bristol Palin has landed another reality show and will get a chance to play house with her boyfriend.

Right after her stint on ‘Dancing with the Stars‘, the daughter of Sarah Palin taped a reality show with brothers Kyle Massey and Chris Massey, but after a little bit of press, we never heard another word about it.  Not that we’re complaining.  Honest.

It seems Bristol moved back to Alaska and bought a house across the lake from mama Grizzly and she’s been working to fix it up. Naturally, Bristol smelled a reality show pitch in there and is now dragging her boyfriend of a year, pipeline worker Gino Paoletti, along for the ride.  The two are going to film the adventure of moving in together when the house is finished this summer and give their relationship a “trial marriage“.

“Bristol and Gino are crazy about each other. They’ve talked about getting married, but they think it’s a good idea to live together before making it official.”

In my part of the world, that’s just called moving in with your boyfriend.  But I guess it sounds more respectable to call it a “trial marriage”?!

The new show is called ‘Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp”.

No word on whether Levi Johnston will be making any appearances on the new show.  He’s in the news this week for knocking up another Alaskan woman, though.  And making claims that the Palins are blocking him from seeing Tripp.  Mama Palin lashed back at him, calling him a liar and saying that they haven’t heard a word from him since the summer of 2010.  So, it makes sense why all of them are back in the news airing their dirty laundry…Bristol has a show to promote.

It sounds like Sarah Vs. Levi would be a lot more fun to watch.  But that’s just me.

This week the reality stars of Bravo descended on NYC for the Bravo Upfronts and Andy Cohen’s first ever, Watch What Happens Live Bravo All-Stars Party.

Is poor, pregnant Snooki being duped by that innocent-looking Jionni LaValle? Rumor has it that he’s been cheating on his fiancé with an ex-girlfriend.

In this week’s National Enquirer (not always trash tabloid), a source says that Jionni has been photographed getting cozy with an old flame named Erica Wecksler, a 22-year-old fashion merchandiser.

“Poor little Snooki is caught up in a love triangle that she knows nothing about! He’s engaged to Snooki but go­ing behind her back to contact Erica, calling and texting her. He’s cheating on Snooki.”

Firing back is Snooki’s rep, who says that the whole thing is made up by a bunch of wannabe famewhores. Oh, so people like the Shore gang before they got their big break?

Her rep tells Hollywood Life: “Snooki is very happy, healthy, in mommy-to-be mode and doesn’t let rumors like this bother her.  It’s sad when people come out of the wood work to make some quick cash with made up or embellished stories. Those people are not friends of hers and only want 15 minutes of fame or in their case 30 seconds.”

It’s a good thing that Snooki doesn’t let the crazy rumors get to her, because we know there will be at least twelve new ones per day and filming hasn’t even started on the new season yet!

Another Jersey Shore couple is also dealing with the rumor mill this week.  JWoww and Roger Matthews have been facing reports in the media that they were heading for a split, but a friend close to the reality star and her beau says it’s the total opposite. Star says that Jenni dumped Roger when she started filming her new spinoff show with Snooki, but a source says that the two are “always together” and “practically engaged”.

J-Woww also jumped on Twitter (as all celebs do to either stir the pot or set the record straight).

She tweeted:   “Just found out online me and roger broke up lol awkward since we r at the gym together right now… Love tabloids.”

Who can keep up anymore? I’ve got whiplash.

In other J-Woww and Snooki news, the dynamic duo shared a photo of their new pad in Jersey City where they’ve been filming their spin-off show.
