The eight remaining couples of Dancing With The Stars hit the stage Monday night during a special ‘Moving Night’ edition of the hit show.
Coming in first place was Nicole Scherzingerand Derek Hough’s Pretty Woman-inspired tango. The duo received a standing ovation from the crowd to go along with their almost perfect score of 29. Judge Len called it “the best dance of the season so far.” Carrie Ann Inaba added, “Every moment, you could have taken a snapshot and it would have just been art.”
Olympic ice skater Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya found themselves in second place this week, ending their two consecutive weeks at the top. They received a high score of 27 for their rumba dance to “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing,” from Armageddon.
Jake Pavelka found himself in 3rd place for the first time this season with the 23 score he received for donning his tighty whiteys while dancing the cha-cha to “Old Time Rock & Roll” from Risky Business. In fourth place was Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The duo received a score of 22 for their Pulp Fiction dance. Perhaps it’s just me, but I thought they performed better than a 22.
In last place for the second straight week was reality mom Kate Gosselin, who seemed to take a few step backwards after receiving the Judges’ praises for her performance last week. Kate was shown once again in rehearsals bitching at questioning her partner Tony Dovolani every step of the way. She looked to be taking a stroll rather than dancing as she attempted to fox trot to the Breakfast Club movie. Kate deservedly received harsh criticism for the judges. Bruno called the performance “catatonic.” He added, “Tony could have gotten more life out of a frock on a coat hanger.” Ouch.
Gretchen, 32, joined the ranks of Miley Cirus, Kim Kardashian, Pamela Anderson and Lindsay Lohan when she created her own ‘Naughty Blonde Ambition‘ milkshake which includes Vanilla frozen yogurt, Reese’s Pieces, Heath Bar, Hersey’s Chocolate Syrup, Whipped Cream with a cherry on top. Gretchen created the shake with one thought in mind… “Naughty!”…In calories, that is.
Gretchen was also joined by Bravo’s Chad Rogers of Million Dollar Listing who came to support her. More photos of that below. In the meantime, check out the video of Gretchen as she shows us the proper way to down a milkshake. She also discusses Hollywood infidelities, her makeup line, her song and donating some of the proceeds to the Leukemia Foundation.

However just a week after coming out, the 31 year-old reality star announced her split from girlfriend DJ Tracy Young, then going on to claim the lesbian relationship was only a fling and nothing serious. Kim even went as far as to publicly call refer to Tracy as ‘crazy,’ ‘obsessed,’ and a ‘stalker.’
DJ Tracy has mostly remained silent until now. The DJ gave an interview to blogger Jonathan “JJ” Jaxson, who also happens to be Kim’s former publicist, and dished on details of her relationship with Kim including how they met and fell in love.
On how and when Kim and Tracy first met… “Kim got in touch with me and said she was coming to LA to be performing on the Ellen Show and she wanted me to go with her. I was confused but decided to go along. We immediately connected and later on that night was when she text me from the back of the SUV we were riding in to say that she thinks she likes me.”
And exactly what happened from there… “I literally spent the next three months with Kim. Within a week of being together she mouthed the words ‘I Love You’ to me. I was practically living in her Duluth townhouse along with her two little girls. We all spent the Christmas holiday together in the Bahamas and we rarely spent a moment away from one another.”
On rumors about the two to wed on Season 3 of the “Real Housewives Atlanta…” “Kim begged me to come on the show and be her girlfriend on the new season of her show. I told her absolutely not that I didn’t want that kind of attention. I would have been on just as a friend or music producer/DJ. She also asked me to come out with her on a cover of a tabloid, saying she could get $400,000 thousand for it. Again, I said that wasn’t the best.”
When the two called it quits… “We never really broke up. She just lied to me and said she was going to Mexico alone with two of her best friends and they were paying for it. We didn’t talk really the whole time she was there and I knew something was weird and didn’t match up. This all happened after she had to fly out to Mexico, I was off back home to LA and her daughters just found out that we were more than friends.”
According to Jonathan, Kim was paid by Life&Style magazine for her coming out story, somewhere in the ballpark of $20,000. Jonathan also claims Kim tried to get back together with Tracy even after publicly trashing her.

Kim Kardashian sent the web buzzing Monday afternoon after she tweeted the above photo of herself holding a black cat by the scruff of its neck.
“Pic from my shoot yesterday…good kitty cat!” wrote the 29 year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashiansstar underneath the TwitPic. This led to Kim being slammed by her Twitter fans and even PETA for the way she held the cat in the photo.
Kim later followed up with the following comment, “Rest assured, the owner and vet were on set and showed me how to pick him up, the cat was not harmed in any way and is perfectly fine! I love animals and would never do anything to harm animals.”
It seems Kim might have had a point as TMZ contacted the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals L.A., who told them “It is permissible to hold a kitten by his or her scruff for a brief amount of time” … however warning, “the manner in which Ms. Kardashian is holding the kitten could lead others to mishandle animals.”
Moving on from Catgate to Kim’s 2007 Playboy appearance. In a new interview with Bazaar magazine, during which the reality star poses nude in an un-airbrushed photo, Kim reveals that she actually regrets doing Playboy, saying her mom pressured her into doing it. Kim told the magazine, “I’m sorry I did Playboy. I was uncomfortable.”
Kim added that her pimp mom Kris Jennertold her to “go for it.” Kim quotes her mom as saying, “They might never ask you again. Our show isn’t on the air yet. No one knows who you are. Do it and you’ll have these beautiful pictures to look at when you’re my age.”

Courtney Yate’s elimination on this week’s Survivor came as no surprise, but what did come as a surprise was JT’s move to give his opponent/villain Russell Hantz his immunity idol, on his suspicion of a villain all girl alliance. Some are calling this one of the dumbest moves ever on Survivor.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Courtney,29, discuses being eliminated, what she really thinks of Russell and shares her thoughts on JT’s big move.
Excerpts from Courtney’s interview below:
Let me start by asking, are you allergic to challenges?
I am, in fact, allergic to challenges. It’s actually in my contract that I play the least amount of any Survivor.
I hate not seeing you flounder around with limbs flying everywhere, and then last night you finally partake in a crazy challenge, yet instead of seeing you we had to watch Colby and Russell have a chat. I know! I did a fine job during that challenge. And Amanda was proud of me and you know, you can’t catch a break. They always want to highlight me when I’m messing up, but when you do it good it’s glossed right over!
How often do you think about how different everything could have been had Tyson just not voted himself out of the game?
You can’t spend your life looking backwards, and being in this community you end up seeing these people who three years later are like, “Well, at the final 7 if this person had done this…” and you’re like, “Wow, you need to move on.” It didn’t work out. I had an amazing time. I’m lucky to be on the jury. I’m honored to have been asked to be an all-star. I think it’s insane that someone thinks of lady all-stars and thinks of me! I was more disappointed for Rob and Tyson actually than for myself, because those boys were playing really well and…well, I guess I don’t feel sorry for Tyson.
I don’t think we saw you and Russell have a single one-on-one conversation the entire time you were out there. Did you have any conversations about anything — like did he ever take you aside to tell you how awesome he is?
He did. Russell and I had a lot of conversations. A lot of them weren’t camera worthy because they were all about how much could he get for his autograph and how much money he could get for going to different places. And I was just looking at him going, “Russell, no one cares about your autograph! I think you have a different idea of what is going to happen.” Because he only had 10 days between the two seasons, so he’s like, “I’m Russell Hantz! I’m king of the world! I’m big!” And we were all like, “No one cares! The instant this show is off the air no one is going to know who you are! They’re going to see you in line at Burger King and go ‘Didn’t I used to work with you?’” Besides that we talked about Popeyes chicken and what we would eat in New York. Russell is fine. I think he figured out early on that he couldn’t Russell minf— me so I was just useless to him so we’re perfectly fine. I don’t have any hatred towards Russell. I think he’s a great player. He’s the evolution of what the game is. He’s redefining it around himself and everyone’s delighted with it. So how can you be mad at that?
Did you know that J.T. had given Russell the idol?
I did not know. I found out after. I mean, poor kid. He did what he thought was the right thing. He didn’t know. He was making a move and trying to keep his group together and I think he knew he had a big target on his back. He made a big move trying to save himself and stay ahead of the pack. I don’t think he has it in him to be a more subtle player.
Interesting that you only lost four pounds while out there.
It wasn’t very hard. There were coconuts everywhere. There were bananas for the most part. In China there was literally nothing to eat so we sat around staring at each other all day dreaming about food. Plus, once you’ve been through it you know that you can do it, so it’s not this terrifying I’m-actually-going-to-wake-up-and-be-dead-tomorrow feeling…and then they’re just going to film it.
Thoughts on last week’s Survivor – It was somewhat shocking to see JT make his “big” move by giving Russell his immunity idol. The idea behind the move itself was pretty smart but what made it stupid was the assumption made by JT. At this point in the game, JT’s an all star and has yet to see Russell’s season, therefor making him unfamiliar with Russell’s MO. He only knows Russell is a villain. For JT to completely just assume that there was an all girl alliance going on is what made the move dumb. In a game like Survivor, you can’t just make an assumption like this and run with it. You have to look at these things from all angles. He didn’t even seem to have any doubts about this move. I will say though that Russell had a big advantage going into this all star game. His season had yet to air on TV, giving him a major advantage as the other players knew nothing about his gameplay.

The overly sensitive Shaq reportedly believes his ex-wife Shaunie O’Neal might be bashing him on future episodes, and had his lawyers fire off a letter to VH1 demanding they “immediately halt production on “any further episodes of ‘Basketball Wives’ which make any reference to Mr. O’Neal.”
Shaq’s lawyer is claiming Shaunie signed a confidentiality agreement at some point in their relationship therefore preventing her from saying anything about Shaq on TV. VH1 has however confirmed the show will go on. The new episode will still air tonight at the scheduled time of 10/9c.
Coming of the heels of a rather impressive debut of Basketball Wives, VH1 announced this week that it will be creating a new spin off series called Football Wives. Similar to Basketball Wives, Football Wives will also offer viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous life of the better halves of professional football’s most elite players.
“Football and basketball are really two very different worlds,” Jeff Olde, executive vice president of original programming and production at VH1, said Wednesday. “In football, there are no guaranteed contracts, so you could be in your heyday one day and out completely the next.”
“The players are also on the road much less than basketball players,” added Olde, “so the family dynamic and work schedule is totally different from the women’s perspective.”
