Dancing with the StarsAll Stars was a bore for fans and a disappointment for ABC. And, after seeing a dip in DWTS' viewer numbers (11-16 million for all stars compared to the previous season's 13-18 million), ABC has decided the show has seen its day we want to see less good dancers and more train wrecks. Oh joy!
It's that time of year again. You know what I mean… The time of year when the annual Dancing With The Stars casting speculation resumes in earnest.
We thought we'd help ABC out a bit by dropping some hints about which reality stars we absolutely need (ok want, but semantics, right?) to see strap on a shiny sequined leotard, drop the magical ten pounds, and prance their way into public humiliation whileDerek Houghgyrates them into a sequined disco ball statue.
First, General Hospital star Kelly Monaco and the talented and delicious Valentin Chmerkovskiy danced the paso doble (29.5/30) and a recreation of Dirty Dancing's iconic "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" dance for their freestyle (29.5/30). Kelly and Val's combined score for the night was 59/60.
The Bachelor's Melissa Rycroft and deserves-to-win Tony Dovolani (he put up with Kate Gosselin!) chose the samba (30/30). The pair took a risk for their freestyle, dancing a contemporary dance. It's safe to say the risk was worth it, as Len was left nearly speechless. The breathtaking dance earned the pair another perfect score. Melissa and Tony's combined score for the night was 60/60.
Finally, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and the master of choreography Derek Hough revisited their we're-above-the-rules quickstep (27/30) and danced a fantastic but gymnastics heavy freestyle that incorporated the "Fierce Five" (30/30). Shawn and Derek's combined score for the night was 57/60.
For the first time in Dancing with the Stars history, three women and their partners go head to head for the trophy… not just any Mirror Ball Trophy… this is the All Stars Trophy! Who wins?

Well, this is a reason to call off a wedding if I've ever heard one! Former Dancing WIth The Stars competitor Hope Solo's finace Jerramy Stevens was arrested Monday morning after the couple reportedly had a physical altercation.
Hope, who once accused former DWTS partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy of slapping her during rehearsals, was spotted inside a Seattle court room where her fiance was facing a 4th degree assault charge related to an incident at their Kirkland, WA home.
KING-TV in Seattle reported that the couple was involved in a domestic dispute around 3:45 am after arguing about where to reside following their wedding, Florida or Washington. When cops arrived Jerramy, a former NFL player, "appeared to be hiding" in a bedroom. He told them he was sleeping, but there was dried blood on his shirt.
"I need to have thyroid surgery and a thyroidectomy, which means I'm going to have a nice big scar right here across my neck," Brookeshared.
Brooke explains that after a regularly scheduled physical, doctors discovered a worrisome lump in her neck and sent them out for tests and a biopsy. "I got my results back days later and they were atypical, which means that the doctors couldn't confirm whether the nodule was cancerous or benign," the 41-year-old mom of four describes.
I think we all can agree that Kirstie Alley's middle name these days is TMI. Promoting her new book The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente), the Dancing with the Stars contestant has been dropping bombs about her life and loves all over the media. Someone needs to put a muzzle on her. STAT!
I'm not sure which recent story is the best. There's the tidbit about John Travolta being the love of her life, her forbidden feelings for Patrick Swayze, and, of course, her giant cocaine addiction. Where to begin? Where to begin?
The last we heard, ABC wanted Emily Maynard back for Bachelorette 2013.Emilyhas yet to respond to ABC's invitation. However, according to one source, a second season is not likely. "Emily tried something new, dating Jef," Emily's pal explained to US Weekly. "She is going back to what she knows and considers safe." That Emily… she really gave the regular folk a try, but it just didn't work out.
Now, it sounds like Emily has found a new man to play the role of husband in her made-for-TV wedding on her own. Over the weekend, Emily was reportedly spotted out on a date. Her date, Jason White, is a Nascar (ie, known and safe) truck racer. "They were all over each other," a source said. "Jason guided her through the crowd and held her hand as they walked downstairs."
Now that princess Emily is otherwise engaged and Cheryl is single again, wil Cheryl get the gig?
However, nobody is more shocked than Drew himself, and he isn't being shy about it. While Drew says he appreciates the "unpredictability" of Dancing with the Stars, he also believes his exit from All Stars is a little "odd." Drew explains, "I take pride in being a performer, and to me it's ironic that the two Broadway performers – me and Joey [Fatone] – are gone already. It's a little odd to me."
