Dancing With The Stars

After being declared the early on favorite to win Dancing With The Stars well before the show premiered, Kendra Wilkinson has failed to impress the judges on the show.

Having been repeatedly criticized for her lack of elegance and well, all around lack of coordination, it seems Kendra has had it!

In an interview following Tuesday’s results show, Kendra took special offense to judge Carrie Ann Inaba’s comments about her lack of elegance. “We have our own definition,” said Kendra. “Elegance is what [my husband] Hank [Baskett] sees, not what Carrie Ann sees. That’s what I care about.”

Kendra then admits she felt “like giving up” following Carrie Ann’s comments. “Another woman telling me about elegance eats away at my ego,” she said. “I’m a huge Carrie Ann fan, and she’s [usually] so sweet, but that one comment – I felt belittled at that moment and embarrassed.” Wowzers. A new episode of DWTS airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

In other DWTS/American Idol news, the NY Post is reporting today that ousted AI contestant Pia Toscano, who is now more popular than ever thanks to her early departure on the show, forgot to break up with her boyfriend of 4 years Carlos Nunez before going on a first date with DWTS pro Mark Ballas.

A mutual friend of the couple tells the Post, “It seems inevitable to anyone with eyes. They hadn’t spoken as often as you’d think once she made the final 12. She kind of played a disappearing act.”

The friend reveals that problems in the relationship became more obvious when Carlos flew to Los Angeles to see Pia’s first ‘Idol’ performance but she could only find a “couple of hours” to be with him.

It gets even better as Carlos was reportedly with Pia’s family the day of her shocking elimination from Idol and even comforted her weeping family as they watched the telecast. The very next day, Pia and Mark were seen going on their first date.

Just two weeks ago, Carlos told the Post he was “confident” in his relationship with Pia. “We’ve been together for a long time. We have a strong foundation. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be,” said Carlos.

As for Pia, she had the following response on twitter to a fan who kept tweeting nasty comments to her about the NY Post story. “Please don’t post this garbage on my page.. And you my friend are the dumb one for believing it! Good day,” tweeted Pia.


It seemed all but evident that Kendra Wilkinson would likely be getting the boot on Tuesday’s Dancing With The Stars results show, after receiving the lowest score on Monday, but that was not the case.

Kendra was safe and unfortunately for boxer legend Sugar Ray Leonard, he and his partner Anna Trebunskaya were sent home.

Despite the somewhat surprising elimination, Sugar Ray, 45, wasn’t bitter with the results. “You know what? That’s life and I fought a good fight,” he said on Tuesday’s show. “I’ll cherish this moment. Good friends, good show. I love the spirit of the show. I love the people on this show.”

His partner Anna added, “We had so much fun. It was amazing. A boxer become a ballet dancer!”

In other DWTS news, Playboy has now released the cover of their May issue featuring dancer Karina Smirnoff. As we reported, Karina posed nude for the latest issue of the mag.

“As a dancer I’ve always embraced my body,” the 33-year-old Ukrainian born dancer tells Playboy. “I’m thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness.” The issue hits stands on Friday. Photos below.

It was classical night on Dancing With The Stars Monday as the stars had to groove to classical music courtesy of a 46-piece orchestra.

The dances of the night were the paso doble, waltz or Viennese waltz. And with a few weeks into the show, it seems the top spot continues to be up for grabs as a new star led the leaderboard for the 3rd consecutive week.

In her taped package, Disney starlet Chelsea Kane made it clear she wanted to break away from the rest of the pack and that she did. Chelsea got the highest score of the night, a 26 for her “beautiful” Viennese Waltz with partner Mark Ballas. “It was magical, fabulous, beautiful and bewitching,” said Bruno, “and technically speaking, it was the best dance of the night.”

Coming close to Chelsea’s score were Hines Ward and Ralph Macchio, both earning a score of 25 for their dances. Hines continued to emerge as an early favorite with his explosive paso doble. “You’re really doing great,” said Len. Also earning rave reviews from the judges was Ralph, who also danced the Viennese Waltz.

Kirstie Alley continued to fall to the bottom of the pack despite getting a solid score of 22 for her elegant waltz which earned her a standing ovation. Kirstie, who complained of a hip injury, suffered another mishap for the second week in a row when her shoe came off during a dance move. Kirstie still managed to receive praises from the judges. “You didn’t miss a beat,” said Carrie Ann with Bruno adding she did “amazingly well.”

Kendra Wilkinson continued to disappoint after being declared the favorite to win the show before the premiere. With a score of 18 for her messy Viennese waltz, Kendra is at the bottom of the scoreboard, in serious danger of going home tonight.

The scores from last night below:

Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 26
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 25
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 25
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 23
Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin: 23
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 23
Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 22
Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya: 21
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis Van Amstel: 18


A week after Playboy founder Hugh Hefner announced on twitter that Karina Smirnoff had posed nude for the May issue of the mag, many are still surprised and wondering why she made that choice.

Well, the Dancing With The Stars pro is explaining just that via excerpts from her interview with Playboy. “I’m fearless and love the adrenaline rush,” Karina, 32, tells the mag. “Sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are.”

PEOPLE also reports that the higher ups at DWTS are not upset with Karina for posing nude. “They did know ahead of time and they still gave her one of the best pairings,” reveals a source.

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting that dancer Mark Ballas and American Idol’s recently eliminated contestant Pia Toscano are hooking up!

According to the site, the two went on a first date on Friday night. As for how the date came about, TMZ states it all started with Pia who developed a crush on Mark as they both shoot their respective shows on the CBS Television City lot in L.A.

Pia apparently had her eye on Mark for weeks and decided to give her friend a piece of paper with her number on it. That friend handed it to DWTS contestant Chris Jericho, who then passed it on to Mark.

Mark was said to have been more than receptive and even rescheduled a music video shoot so he could go on their date on Friday. The two are said to be smitten and plan to do it all again soon. A photo of Mark and Pia after their date is below!

Pia seems to be having a pretty good week as it was also reported she scored herself a record deal less than 24 hours after her Idol elimination.



In today’s very surprising news, Dancing With The Stars‘ pro dancer Karina Smirnoff will be posing for Playboy!

Playboy honcho Hugh Hefner actually broke the news on twitter Wednesday. “The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars‘ Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside,” Hugh, 84, tweeted.

For the time being, Karina, 33, is remaining mum on her nude pictorial while a Popeater report states the Playboy spread might get her in trouble with DWTS.

“If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye,” a ‘DWTS’ insider stated. “I hope for Karina’s sake that this isn’t true.”

The reason? Apparently the folks at ABC feel having one of their dancers pose naked during an ongoing season could “soil” the wholesome image of the show.

It should however be pointed out that Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson is currently a contestant on the show plus Holly Madison participated in the show a few years back. Also, show host Brooke Burke has appeared in the mag before.

The Popeater report does state the issue with Karina is that she will be appearing in the mag while the show is currently on the air. Karina, who got engaged to professional baseball player Brad Penny back in November, has also received some criticism from fans who wonder why she has decided to pose nude.

Yes, Tuesday night was elimination night on Dancing With The Stars, but the #1 question on the minds of most was how was dancing hottie Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s thigh holding up?

The good news is that all is “fine” with Maksim’s thigh as he thanked the fans for their “overwhelming” support. He added, “You’re going to need a stretcher to get me out of here.” As for Maksim’s partner Kirstie Alley, she was ready for a new topic. “You’re so pretty Brooke Burke,” said Kirstie when asked by Brooke to walk us through the fall. “Let’s change the subject.”

So on to the next subject which is who was sent packing? For the second week in a row, the lowest scorer got the boot as Wendy Williams and her partner Tony Dovolani were eliminated.

“This has been a wonderful opportunity. I want to thank the judges and I want to thank Tony for teaching me how to dance,” said Wendy, 46. “Despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can’t even doing the running man!”

Wendy added that she was excited to get back to her normal routine. “I’m probably the busiest person in terms of flying back and forth. I have a marriage, a child and a litany of other things to hold together.”

Meanwhile, after having endured a somewhat embarrassing fall yesterday, Kirstie wants the world to know she is still standing strong. The 60-year-old actress hit up a tattoo parlor with Cheryl Burke late Monday and got the word “Unbroken” tattooed on her wrist.

“No longer broken… In body or spirit,” tweeted Kirstie later adding, “Just FYI… I was planning on getting a tattoo for awhile. Your votes sealed it. Thanks for al the great ideas….xxoxo.” Photos of Kirstie’s tattoo below.


It’s week 3 on Dancing With The Stars and the theme of this week was storytelling as each star had to tell a personal tale of love, loss, triumph or heartache.

But first things first as the big story of the night was pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 31, who took a fall on the dance floor bringing down his partner Kirstie Alley, 60. “My thigh just gave out. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry,” Maksim told the judges afterwards. “It has nothing to do with her.” Photos of the fall below.

The fall didn’t seem to affect their scores as the pair managed to earn a 21 for their rumba dance. Meanwhile the real stars of the night were model Petra Nemcova and NFL player Hines Ward, as they both earned the first 9s of the season. Petra finished the night with a high score of 25 for her “beautiful” waltz while Hines also tied for first place, after receiving a 25 score for his samba dance which he dedicated to his mom who was sitting in the front row.

Kendra Wilkinson showed some improvement earning her highest score of the season – a 23 for her hot rumba, which told the tale of her romance with NFL player Hank Baskett. Judge Len praised her “beautiful feet” and “gorgeous leg activity.”

Failing to show any improvement was talk show host Wendy Williams who continued to struggle. Wendy earned the lowest score of the night, a 15 for her foxtrot.

Below is the full scoreboard from last night –

Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 25
Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin: 25
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 23
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel: 23
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 21
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 21
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 21
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 20
Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya: 20
Wendy Williams & Tony Dovolani: 15

Another celeb will get the boot tomorrow on the results show at 9/8c, which will also include performances by Selena Gomez and One Republic.


There were no surprises last night on Dancing With The Stars as the star with the lowest combined score from the first two dances got the boot.

Radio host “Psycho” Mike Catherwood was the first to be eliminated this season after finding himself in the bottom three with Wendy Williams and Sugar Ray Leonard.

“It’s been nothing but a pleasurable experience,” said Mike, 32, of his time on the show. “It sucks to be sent home first, but I’ve made a lot of good friends,” he added. “America obviously knows that Lacey Schwimmer is a beautiful person on the outside, but everybody needs to know she’s equally, if not more, beautiful on the inside. I’ve made a lifelong friend.”

Do not feel sorry for Mike yet as there continues to be rumblings that he is being considered to replace Regis Philbin on Live With Regis & Kelly. Mike, a guest host on the show recently, confirmed ABC has invited him back to co-host a future episode.

Singer Chris Brown performed two songs on the show last night and it all went without a glitch as no windows were broken nor was he interviewed by show host Tom Bergeron. See, following Chris’s outburst at GMA last week, there had been some controversy surrounding his DWTS performance.

Tom went on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this week and stated “I did tell the producers it may be to their advantage to not have me interview him.” The reason? “Don’t put me in a position where you’re asking me to not say something,” said Tom, adding “cause I won’t really do that. Even if it’s just a snarky little aside, you know, ‘How was your week?'”

Also, dancer Cheryl Burke spoke out against Chris this week. “As a victim of domestic violence, I don’t agree with him coming on the show, but it’s out of my control,” said Cheryl to Extra. Wendy Williams also stated on her talk show last week that she was “disgusted with this little boy” following his GMA incident.

Next week, the stars return to compete on Monday night with a clean slate.
