It is week 4 of Dancing With The Stars, and the competition continues to get steep, as tonight will bring a different scoring format. Each of the dancing couples will receive two scores, one for their performance, and the other for technique.
Kate Gosselin’s Tough Week – As if getting low scores wasn’t bad enough, the mom of eight has also had to endure another tough week in the press. First came news that ex-husband Jon Gosselin was taking her back to court in an attempt to get custody of their eight children, and then came the UsWeekly cover accusing her of acting like a major celebrity and basically being a ‘super bitch from hell.’ Professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy made a good point in his blog this week, saying: “I’ve spoken to Kate, and I don’t think she gets the point of this thing yet. The pain on her face says it all, which is unfortunate. The show is about finding a way to come out, enjoy yourself and have fun.” It will be interesting to see how Kate performs tonight.
Erin Andrews Denies Romance – Despite their PEOPLE magazine cover story proclaiming Erin and partner Maksim in a “hot romance.” The ESPN reporter slammed the story, saying any romance report is news to her and Maks. “According to People, our “romance” is official, but People must know people because we don’t know the people that they know. The thing is, what Maks and I do joking around gets taken seriously. After looking at the article, Maks said to me, “You would’ve thought we were on some beach riding a horse. It was like a romance novel.” Allrighty then, romance or not, those two seem to have some great chemistry between them.
Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Romance? – Romance rumors also continue to heat up for dancing duo, Chad and partner Cheryl Burke. And it didn’t help that Chad gave Cheryl a $10,000 ring last week, but according to Chad the ring was just a thank you gift to Cheryl for putting up with him. More than likely it’s just flirting between the two, and why you might ask? Well for one, Chad has signed a deal with VH1 to stare in his own dating reality show, titled The Tournament, set to air later this year.
The couples will be dancing the rumba or tango dance tonight. Nine couples remain, and one couple will face elimination tomorrow night.
TELL US: WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO WIN THIS SEASON?
In perhaps what could be called karma for not helping save his alliance member Rob Mariano during the last elimination, Benjamin ‘Coach” Wade, 38, ended up being the next victim of Russell (all thanks to Sandra), when he was voted out during the last episode of Survivor.
In a new interview with PEOPLE, the first jury member discusses his surprise in what he calls a complete “blindside.” He also talks about Rob’s elimination (Coach takes zero blame for Rob going home by the way), his disdain for Russell and his feelings on Jerri today.
Excerpts from Coach’s interview below -
Did you have any inkling that you were in danger?
It was a total blindside. From the first frog-marching with Colby to the last mud-diving with Rupert, my performance was consistent. Add the fact that Courtney rolled her ankle and limped off the last immunity, the fact that the tribe was starving and the morale was so low, I assumed they wouldn’t make such a preposterous choice.
The Villains started out so strong. What went wrong? Tyson was that bridge between the younger and older generations, the honorable people like myself and dishonorable people like Russell and the major egomaniacs and the sweet and humble players. When he left, it knocked us down.
Sandra seemed to play into Russell’s ego.
Courtney and Sandra knew they were going home if they didn’t do something and they even seemed surprised at the turn of events. But if you throw enough mud on the wall, something will probably stick. But there is no doubt that Russell is a ferocious player. There’s a bit of bully syndrome going on. He does not play with strong players. He picks people, and it’s usually the women, that he can dominate and manipulate. And when someone disagrees with him like Danielle, he refuses to f-ing talk to them. It will become an even stupider move if they never merge.
There is some amount of blame that can be placed on you because you didn’t pick a side in the Russell versus Rob battle.
If there is one person to blame for Rob going home beside himself and Russell, it’s Jerri. Everybody blamed me, but how did I betray him? Jerri was the one who said she wouldn’t vote for Russell and ripped my guts by selling Rob down the river yet she got a hug and I got called a ‘little man.’ Russell and Rob would not have made fire so the rest of us would have drawn rocks and I would have had a one-in-six chance of going home. I also tried for three days to get those two on the same page. I said, “Let’s talk. I will mediate. The three of us need to get on the same page or we will just keep losing.” Rob shot himself in the foot because he refused to meet. It was an impossible situation for me to thrust into and for me to bear the brunt of it is just another unjust [thing] against the Dragonslayer. It is my lot in life.
Speaking of Jerri, could she still be the future Mrs. Coach despite her betrayal? Or were the sparks all editing?
Mrs. Coach. That’s a good one. Jerri is one of a kind, awesome. She disappointed me again and again out there but what happens in the game stays in the game because there was definitely some romantic interest. We cooled it off because we knew if we continued to be together, we’d become a big target. We’re not allowed to see each other before the finale, but I can’t wait to see her there and we will see what happens after that.
TELL US – WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON COACH GOING HOME? AND ON THE LAST EPISODE OF SURVIVOR?
So what do you do after you spend over $35,000 getting 10 cosmetic procedures done in one day? Well if you’re Heidi Montag, star of MTV’s The Hills, the next step is to show it off ofcourse!
The 23 year-old porn star reality star sported a bikini for the first time since her widely publicized surgeries. Heidi hosted the Liquid Pool at Aria at CityCenter Las Vegas this Saturday.
Heidi also recently revealed to Ryan Seacrest that depending on the bra, her circus tits breasts are now size “E or F”. And in case you’re wondering, some of Heidi’s procedures included liposuction on her thighs and stomach.
“I haven’t been in a bikini since my new body and of course I’m wearing my own designs so I’m excited to show the world,” she said. According to PEOPLE, Heidi was surrounded by her six bodyguards as well as her pimp husband,Spencer Pratt.

The photo (you can click on it to make it bigger) on the right was from taken on April 7th, 2010 as Kim hosted the Bravada International launch party in Los Angeles. Kim has always been rumored to have had work done on her face and body, something she has always denied, but then again she denied having a sex tape years ago, and we all know how that turned out.
Photos from this event show some very noticeable differences in her face compared to what she looked like in 2006, or even what she looked like just a year ago. You can see more photos of Kim below.
The 29 year-old E! star, who ended her relationship Reggie Bush just two weeks ago, looks to have had some cheek implants, face injections, a nose job, and perhaps some botox or face lift. No telling on what she has done to the rest of her body.
Hollywood is such a weird place, as once again, there was no reason for Kim to drastically alter her look, she looked just fine before. Hopefully Kim can stop altering her face before she ends up looking like the cat lady.

Another week, another negative story about Kate Gosselinin the press.
The latest is the cover of UsWeekly magazine which paints the Dancing With The Stars contestant as being a major diva. According to US, Kate is so standoffish on DWTS, that she now has show staffers contact her through her bodyguard, Steve Neild.
“When the show needs to contact Kate, they go through Steve,” says a production source who also reveals that having personal security is not the norm for any of the other star competitors. “She acts like a major celebrity. It’s a joke with the cast, like, ‘Oh, look out — the bodyguard is watching!’”
Professional dancer Derek Hough however comes to Kate’s defense saying, “If anyone is allowed to be stressed, it’s Kate. She is so out of her element. She can act any way she wants, in my book.”
DWTS judge Bruno Tonioli also appeared on George Lopez’s talk show this week and pretty much slammed Kate’s dancing skills, calling it crap. “Kate is pretty dreadful. She’s crap. But in a nice way. She is entertaining,” said Bruno.
As for why viewers continue to vote for Kate, Bruno has his own theory: “People like disaster movies. We’ve got our own disaster movie there everyday. 2012 is nothing compared to the catastrophe she produces. She is a tough cookie. She gets it in the face, she comes back and she tries to get better. It doesn’t really work.” Ouch.
So last night’s episode of Real Housewives of NYC was rather intense. Almost to the point of draining, I can only imagine how the women involved felt, if I as a viewer, felt somewhat drained after watching. Overall, it as a very good episode.
So in doing this recap, I will just go down the list and talk about each housewife. It’s a long recap so I’ll get right to it.
Ramona - We’ll start off with Ramona. This woman makes it really difficult to like her. I decided last night that I have a like/dislike relationship with her as a viewer. One minute you can’t believe her outrageous behavior (her comments to Bethenny during their walk), and then the next minute she apologizes and then says something insightful( calling Jill out on being a hypocrite for planning the Kelly and Bethenny talk/”ambush” last season). It’s definitely a Ramonacoaster. At the end of the day, it’s somewhat starting to get old. I mean, what is really wrong with this woman? She lacks tact and is in dire need of a filter. You learn around the age of 10 that you can’t just blurt out everything you think, so I’m not exactly sure why Ramona, at age 54, hasn’t mastered that art quite yet. I mean does she have some sort of chemical imbalance or something? Sighs, her words to Bethenny last night were really mean and uncalled for. Her attack of Kelly weeks ago about her boob job was really mean and uncalled for as well. Ramona is going to have to learn someday that just because you apologize for something doesn’t make it okay. The whole I have diarrhea of the mouth thing is getting old. I think it’s time she take some Pepto-Bismol and learn to keep her mouth shut. She says these things, apologizes, and then does it again the next day….
Jill – On to Jill, the new villain of the season. I remember Bethenny’s appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens talk show after the premiere of the first episode this season. Andy asked her if she had any remorse about the end of her friendship with Jill, Bethenny said she had absolutely no regrets. At the time, I thought that was mean and cold of Bethenny. After watching the last few episodes, I must say I fully understand why she felt that way. I agree with Alex, Jill likes to keep score, and is definitely very unforgiving. I really liked Jill the first season of the show, and didn’t start to not like her until last season, especially after what I thought was very mean behavior from her during last year’s reunion show. What I’ve noticed about Jill is her NEED to always dig at others, and put them down. It’s like she needs to bring others down, and always make sure they are never on the same level as she is. For example, she seemed to take some perverse pleasure in letting Kelly know her playboy issue was not for the 40th anniversary, and ofcourse letting Alex know just how “awful” her kids are.
Plus I’m not sure I’m buying her tears from last night, it seemed a bit forced. She was so cold to Bethenny last night, and I’m sure Bethenny has done and said some hurtful things to Jill, but I highly doubt Jill is completely innocent. I honestly think her vindictiveness, and the fact that she was so hell bent on “destroying” Bethenny was why she was so unwilling to forgive. Jill is simply not a nice person to sum this up. It’s quite ironic that she’s mentioned several times this season that she is “scared” of Bethenny. Which is interesting coming from someone who has tried to rally everyone on her side, making sure that even in Bethenny’s deepest darkest hour, she will be left standing alone, with no friend and no “troops.” No Jill, Bethenny is the one who should be scared of YOU and your juvenile behavior. You are a mean spirited, jealous and a very vindictive person.
Kelly – Oh Kelly Kelly Kelly… I think Ramona’s comment on next week’s episode kinda sums this up, “I can’t talk to you, you have no brain.” A bit mean for Ramona to say, but honestly I don’t understand this girl, or oops I mean woman. She is 41 years old after all, even though she acts like 12. I’m just confused, I mean is she a moron? brain dead? I’m literally scratching my head as I type this. The things she says, the way she acts, added to the things other people say that just always seems to completely go over her head. I don’t get her and find her exhausting and really weird. For someone who claims to have a degree from the prestigious Columbia, I find her quite moronic. And yes Bethenny was really awful to her in the press last year, but to completely blame Bethenny for damaging her reputation is something I will have to disagree with. Her behavior and bizzaro actions on the show is what damaged her rep. I will add that Kelly’s saving grace is the fact she doesn’t seem to be a mean or vicious person.

Perhaps there’s good reason for that, as Alexis new facebook photos have a lot of viewers speculating on whether the OC Housewife has had more work done. Alexis has always been forthcoming about having gone under the knife in the past, admitting to a boob job and regular botox.
The first photo on the left is Alexis’s current profile photo on her facebook page, while the photo on the right is what she looked like before, and even her fans are commenting on the very noticeable change in her new look. And at first one might thing it was just some overzealous airbrushing, but a look at other new photos posted by Alexis shows a different looking Alexis as well. More of those photos are posted below.
Interestingly, Alexis announced earlier this year that she is now doing consulting work for a plastic surgeon at www.cosmeticare.com. This is very reminiscence of the whole Heidi Montag story, not sure why Alexis felt the need to get more work done, if she actually did, because she looked just fine before in my opinion.
