Dancing With The Stars

Maksim-Chmerkovskiy

Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have called of their engagement. The Dancing With The Stars couple announced their split today.  Karina’s rep also confirms the split to USMagazine.

Maksim, 29, posted on his Twitter Monday: “What was meant to be a ‘life long book’, turned into a ‘chapter’…….and now that ‘chapter’ is finished…… Se la vie…”  The twitter status has been deleted as of Tuesday.

The professional dancing duo got engaged on New Year’s Eve 2008 — just six months after Karina, 31, split from Mario Lopez. They had planned on getting married in June 2010, but prolonged their engagement in July because of their busy Broadway schedules.

They will both be returning to DWTS when the new season returns to ABC Sept. 21.  Maksim is paired with Entourage star Debi Mazar, and Karina with Aaron Carter.

This split seems rather sudden considering the couple was photographed holding hands a little over a week ago, on August 30th. The photo is below -

Recently engaged Melissa Rycroft says wedding plans are coming along well with the help of her fiancé Tye Strickland.

“Tye is planning more than I am,” the former Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars contestant confessed to PEOPLE Monday night at the Verizon Wireless Matt Leinart Foundation Celebrity Bowl in Hollywood. “At this point, I’m probably the worst bride in the history of brides.”

Melissa and Tye dated on and off for about 2 years before he proposed on June 26. With wedding plans underway, Melissa says she would rather be a bad bride than turn into a bridezilla. “I’m the exact opposite [of a bridezilla],” says Rycroft, 26. “I don’t know if we’ll get married ever by the way that I plan it!”

For Melissa, an important part of the ceremony is getting fit to show off the wedding dress. “I’ve heard the stress alone of planning a wedding helps you get into shape for it, so we’ll see if I need to stress myself out a little bit to lose that extra pound!”

Not sure what Melissa is talking about because she definately looks fit to me.

According to a new report, Dancing With The Stars judge Len Goodman was diagnosed with cancer back in March. He however kept it a secret until the season ended.

Len who is also the head judge on the British version of the reality show called Strictly Come Dancing, had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his prostate gland three weeks ago without telling any of his colleagues.

“I have had the surgery now,” Goodman, 65, said. “Everything is gorgeously good. I will be back in September for sure.”

Goodman says he is feeling better already, and is planning on returning to DWTS this fall.

The good news keeps on coming for Melissa Rycroft. The former Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars contestant is now engaged to Dallas insurance agent Tye Strickland.

The two got engaged this weekend. It might seem rather quickly for The Bachelor fans, but the two have actually dated on and off for 2 years. They began dating once again after Jason Mesnick infamously dumped Melissa on national television.

Melissa has since gone on to excel on DWTS, and recently got a job as a correspondent on GMA (Good Morning America).

It seems being dumped by Jason might have been the best thing to ever happen to Melissa. Wondering what Jason is up to nowadays? He and Molly however seem to be making it work. The two were still a couple as of Late May.

melissa-rycroft-b_5DWTS alum, Melissa Rycroft has just landed a new job with ABC’s Good Morning America as a special contributor, reports Usmagazine.

Rycroft, a 26-year-old sales representative and former Dallas cowboy’s cheerleader — will appear on the morning show about eight times during the summer, “bringing lighthearted, uplifting and fun stories to GMA,” says a source.

Remember, Rycroft was famously dumped by Jason Mesnick on ABC’s The Bachelor finale this past spring. She danced her way as one of the finalist on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

After the show ended, she told Us she didn’t have any plans.

“I’m not going to pursue anything right now,” she told Us, “but if things come my way I will look into them. Never say never!”

Following her outstanding performance on DWTS, we knew we haven’t seen or heard the last of Melissa.
