With the first eliminations happening tonight, Dancing With The Stars was sizzling hot last night as the stars danced hard with most showing improvement from the previous week. The top score once again went to Sex and The City movie hottie Gilles Marini and his partner Cheryl Burke. The two were the first dancing couple this season to get a score of 9 from each of the judges.
The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani brought the heat once again with a flawless salsa. And we must say Melissa looked flawless in her outfit! (You listening Jason?).
Best Dance of the week – Melissa and Tony
Most improved this week – Ty and Chelsie
It’s safe to say Melissa and Gilles are the two favorites to win the season, with Shawn Johnson coming in a distant third.
The 2 lowest scores of the night went to Steve-O and Steve Wozniak. Poor Steve, good thing he has his billions to fall back on. Steve-O was absent from the show due to a back injury, he was judged based on his dress rehearsal dance.
Here are the scores for this week –
Gilles and Cheryl: 27
Melissa and Tony: 26
Shawn and Mark: 24
Lil Kim and Derek: 23
Denise and Maksim: 21
Chuck and Julianne: 20
Lawrence and Edyta: 20
Ty and Chelsie: 20

Holly and Dmitry: 18
David and Kym: 17
Steve and Karina: 17
Steve-O and Lacey: 14
A reader watching a Lakers – Dallas game snapped the above picture of Gretchen with Slade Smiley at the game. Those look like some rather pricey seats. The two were also spotted together last week at a car dealership, guess the dating rumors are true after all.
Gretchen recently spoke to People magazine about Jay Photoglou and not cheating on her late fiance Jeff.
Cocktail was outed as having been on Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club’s first season on this week’s episode, but what VH1 didn’t tell you was that she had also appeared on another reality show! Cocktail aka Joanna Hernandez was also featured on Bravo’s Millionaire’s Matchmaker last year as one of the women looking to date a millionaire.
Cocktail aka Jojo’s biography from the Bad Girls club is below, very interesting. She was a late season replacement for one of the original girls, Ty.
“Joanna appears as a member of the cast in the Oxygen network reality television series The Bad Girls Club. She is 25 years old and a native of Sacramento, California, and grew up in a family of Hispanic descent. Though she makes a living as a go-go dancer, her parents remain supposedly unaware of the job she’s chosen. She has also had breast enhancement surgery, receiving implants in order to further enhance her slim physique.She says that she cheats on her boyfriend, and seeks out sugar daddies to pay her way and get her everything she wants. She refers to herself as a “gold digger,” and says that her mom taught her this attitude, that she should seek out and exploit men who would be willing to provide for her every wish.”
UPDATE - A smart commenter going by the name of Olivia made a great observation that Cocktail was not the girl that appeared on the Millionaire Matchmaker. After watching the video again, it turns out Olivia is correct, and Cocktail has never made an appearance on Millionaire Matchmaker. Thanks Olivia!
In an all new interview with People, Gretchen finally addresses rumors about Jay Photoglou, the infamous 911 call and denies cheating on her late fiance Jeff.
As you recall, 40 Yr Old Mean Girl Tamra Barney decided it was her duty to “out” Gretchen during the reunion show, accusing her of cheating on her then dying fiance with a man named Jay.
Gretchen admits to People she went out with Jay on a “couple of dates” before she began dating Jeff but ended all romantic ties once she started seeing Jeff. Gretchen says, “Photoglou became a close friend and “confidante.” But when he wanted to take things further, I was not even going to consider that with him.”
Gretchen claims she continued being close friends with Jay after Jeff’s death and has never taken off her engagement ring once since his death (That would explain this photo of her kissing Jay with her ring on). “Every single time he wanted to have something more and I would deny him, he would say, ‘I’m just going to call the press and tell them we have a relationship, He has never been my boyfriend.”
So how does she explain referring to him as her boyfriend in a 911 call? “Because he was standing right in front of me, I was afraid that he was going to be upset that I was giving dispatch any information about him whether it was his real name, whether or not he was my boyfriend.”
Whatever you say Gretchen. Perhaps she would just be better off admitting she used bad judgment in dating Jay. There are plenty of holes in this new story of hers, but what can we do? We still love Gretchen as do many of the OC Housewives fans. Polls still point to her being the fan favorite but she needs to be truthful or not say anything at all!
Last night was the Tool Academy reunion show and boy was there some more drama! We first find out that Margo, Robert and Karine would not be in attendance. Shawn decides to once again attack Mega about his relationship or non relationship with Margo which leads to Mega going off on Shawn and pretty much shutting him up.
Cameron and Clarence aka Celebrity take the stage, and we found out Celebrity is still the same old tool. He tries to get back in Cameron’s good graces but she brushes him off. We reported earlier that the rumor was Celebrity and Cameron were not an actual couple, but friends who decided to lie in hopes of winning the cash.
Krista and Jenna get into it again, and the quote of the night goes to Jenna!
Jenna – “Who are you calling white trash bitch when you have 2 kids, a boyfriend, a husband, and your boyfriend got fired from target!” Good one Jenna.
Krista and Tommy take the stage. Krista accuses Tommy of being unfaithful. She claims some girls were posting on onlines blogs that they had been intimate with Tommy. Tommy is given a lie detector which he fails. This leads to the biggest show down on the reunion. Krista walks off the stage, slapping Tommy in the process. Tommy denies cheating but it left to go back to the main stage alone to the audience’s applause.
Shawn takes the stage with both Aida and Jaimee. We find out that Shawn and Aida are no longer together. We’re guessing she finally saw him for the tool that he is. A random girl walks on to the stage, and claims to be pregnant by Shawn. Shawn admits this to be the truth and we find out Shawn might just be the biggest tool on the planet.
Jenna and Matsuflex say they are still dating and are happy to let us know their relationship has been consumated. Ashley and Josh are still together and happily married. They are presented with their $100,00o cash prize once again.
There was a lot of chaos this weekend at the America’s Next Top Model auditions in New York. The stampede began as news of a car that was supposedly on fire spread which caused people to start panicking. Other reports claim a loud noise went off with someone yelling out bomb which then led to the stampede.
This resulted in three arrests and six injuries. All the injuries were minor and the auditions were shut down by the cops.
Tyra Banks and the show’s producer Ken Mok release the statement below to US Weekly. No news yet on wether another audtion will be rescheduled in New York.
“We are concerned by the events that occurred Saturday afternoon in the vicinity of the New York City casting call for the next cycle of America’s Next Top Model. At this time, we still don’t know all the details of what happened or what triggered the incident. We appreciate the efforts of the NYPD and will assist them in any way possible in this matter.”
