Each of the four remaining contestants had to perform three dances each — two individual dance numbers and a Cha Cha relay.
After falling into second place last week, Ricki Lake came back with a vengeance this week earning the highest scores of the night! Ricki finished in first place by earning a perfect score of 30 for her “sizzling hot, bright and brilliant” samba dance, a 29 for her tango, and an 8 for her Cha Cha. She ended the night with an amazing score of 67!
Also showing an amazing improvement after coming in 4th last week was Rob Kardashian! First, Rob earned a score of 28 for shaking his butt during his “fantastic” samba. When you add that to the 27 he earned for his Argentine tango along with the 10 he received for the Cha Cha, Rob finished the night with a 65.
Coming in last place this week was soccer starHope Soloand partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. In Hope’s defense, she did have to dance through a painful shoulder injury. While the judges liked her Argentine tango, giving her a score of 24, they also stated her paso doble “lacked artistry”. Hope received a 21 for the paso doble and earned 4 points for her Cha Cha after finishing last in the relay dance.
Meanwhile, after the live show, Maksim had some choice words for judge Carrie Ann Inabawho criticized him for smiling during her critique. When asked about Carrie Ann’s comments backstage, Maks stated: “F— Carrie Ann,”adding, “Next question.” Perhaps he was joking?
“I think Carrie Ann has an issue,” continued Maks. “I don’t know what it is. I would love to know what it is so I can address it. But as of now, I have no clue… I think it was a great night. I totally disagree with the scores, but what else is new?” Hope also chimed in stating, “They’ve [the judges] wanted to get us off since day one.”
Below are the full scores from last night -
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough (30, 29, 8 ) 67
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke (28, 27, 10) 65
J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff (23, 27, 6) 56
Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovksiy (21, 24, 4) 49

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia have an all-girls weekend in Miami and I mean allll girls as it turns out to be lesbian pride weekend. Kim celebrates her 43rd 33rd birthday with a surprise party and Phaedra learns more about the mortuary business — like her husband Apollo is not down with owning a funeral home!
Kandi, NeNe and Cynthia are headed to Miami. Kandi is surprised she was invited since NeNe has never really liked her and all. NeNe probably thinks Kandi is on the outs with Kim over Tardy For The Party and is hoping to recruit her for Team N. Bravo gives us a little flashback of last year’s RHOA trip to Miami and it involved neck snappin’ and eyeball poppin’! When the ladies arrive at the incredibly posh hotel they are greeted with cocktails. My kinda place – and NeNe’s (she announces she lives for a cocktail)!

According to a new report by TMZ, Dana would have made a perfect Bravo housewife as she is now being sued for fraud alongside her fiancé John Flynn, who is described as an “entrepreneur.”
In the lawsuit filed at the L.A. Superior Court this week, Mary Painter alleges Dana and John defrauded her out of $53,000. Mary claims she invested the money in 2008 with the couple and another man… she claimed would get at least a 10% return on their investment.
Mary adds that she tried to get her money out a number of times over the past two years to no avail. TMZ adds that it’s unclear what exactly Mary was investing in. She is also suing for breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation as well as asking for her money back plus damages.
Dana’s fiancé spoke to TMZ stating: “There is no fraud. Dana Wilkey is not a properly named defendant, and we expect to continue to negotiate and gain dismissal of this lawsuit as quick as possible.”
Dana also took to her Twitter page to defend herself. She wrote today, “Its a frivolous lawsuit. It will be dismissed. I didn’t even know about it until I TMZ.” She later added, “I’m not involved. I haven’t even met or spoken to the women.”
In other RHOBH news, Thefix.com (a blog about addiction and recovery) is breaking down Kim Richards’ mix of medications. During last week’s episode, Kim revealed her medications to Adrienne Maloof’s husband Dr. Paul Nassif, who then revealed the mix of prescription drugs likely to blame for Kim’s odd behavior this season.
The Fix blog went a step further specifically listing what exactly each drug Kim is taking does to the body and mind. The blog reveals that Kim’s drug mix is a “recipe for confusion.” While Lexapro — one of the drugs Kim is on — is said to be side-effect-free (below is the break down of the two remaining drugs):
Trazodone – “A tetracyclic antidepressant that’s often given to recovering alcoholics and addicts for its strong soporific quality—useful for insomniacs who’ve relied on narcotic-based sedatives—but its side-effects include confusion and difficulty concentrating or remembering things.”
Topamax - “Is an epilepsy drug and mood stabilizer that’s been used experimentally to treat alcoholism and migraine disorders. It, too, carries some crazy risks: users call it “Dopamax” or “Stupamax” because of side-effects like feeling disoriented and confused, or the inability to remember words or speak in complete sentences.”
Kim’s sisterKyle Richards also blogged this week, citing she feels vindicated that the world can now see prescription drugs are to blame for Kim’s behavior this season and not illegal drugs or alcohol. Below is an excerpt from Kyle’s Bravo blog -
“I am happy they showed Kim discussing with Paul the medication’s she has been taking. I think that clears things up for some people. I didn’t know exactly what she was taking, but I knew that the doctors had put her on something and I saw a difference in here — and not always for the best. That is why I got so upset with Brandi for making that comment about Kim and crystal meth. I knew because she said that on camera millions of people would see that. I know from experience, once something is said on camera, true or false, it follows you forever. My sister Kim has struggled enough with her issues. I didn’t want that to set her back. She is a strong girl but fragile at the same time. I told Kim after her visit with Paul that she had to talk to her doctor’s and get that sorted out. Paul didn’t feel she was on the right medication for her anxiety and didn’t think it was the right combination of meds.”
Moving on to tonight’s new episode of the RHOBH! On the 11th episode this season titled “Tempest in a Tea Party,” Lisa’s stately tea party is at a high boil when Taylor’s true feelings about Lisa bubble to the surface and marital issues are addressed. This is the episode that has been highly promoted by Bravo during which Camille will reveal the claims of Russell Armstrong physically abusing Taylor.
The new episode airs at 9/8c and the preview clip is below.

Oh, Kardashians. I swear their family motto is: Will Work For Attention And Paparazzi!
Pimpmomager Kris Jenner, apparently allergic to the word ‘privacy’, is working over-time to pimp her new memoirKris Jenner andAll Things Kardashian by revealing the salacious details of her affair while married to ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, Keepin it klassy!
Kris, 56, who married at 22 and immediately began having children, spills that Robert (the father to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob) “had been the only man in my life since I was 18… I don’t know why I was having a mid-life crisis at 30, but I was.” This caused the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to “emotionally” disconnect from her marriage and seek the attention of another man!
Kris describes meeting Ryan, a “producer”, at a friend’s party while her husband was away on a “boys’ ski weekend” which led to a steamy, passionate affair! “We had sex everywhere, all the time,” Kris writes, scarring us for life by putting those images into our heads. She goes even farther, stating Ryan and her had “out of control, crazy dangerous, wild sex” in cars, on the tennis court, in the pool house, the garage! Oh the affairs of the rich! – no seedy hotels for Mama K.
Divulging that she lied constantly to cover the affair (and where were the four K-kids while she was getting busy on Beverly Hills tennis courts, I ask?), Kris claims that after Robert caught her numerous times he filed for divorce. Shortly after, Kris learned that Ryan, her younger paramour, was already cheating on her with other girls! You know what they say about my favorite K-word: Karma!
Kris reveals that upon telling her four children about the divorce they “cried, cried, cried, cried, cried. It was horrible” and upon reading all the racy details of Kris’ sex life I imagine they cried, cried, cried again!
“Suddenly I realized everything that was great about my marriage. Robert was the greatest guy in the world. He would never cheat on me. He only wanted the best for me… he made me a better person,” Kris writes in her tell-all; adding that the divorce caused her to lose “friends, respect, and love.”
“To this day I still cannot tell you why. Again, it was if my body had been taken over by demons or aliens. I was really ashamed of myself,” Kris confesses. “It’s probably the biggest regret of my life that I ended up having an affair,” she shares. “[I was] probably just really naive and stupid and restless and didn’t realize that marriage has its ups and downs.”
Perhaps giving a little advice to currently divorcing daughter, Kim, Kris claims she could have saved her marriage and spared her children if only she had talked to Robert about how she was feeling. You think?
Kris sums up her tryst as: “When you’re very young you do a lot of stupid things.” Like participate in reality television? Get married for 72-days after making a zillion dollars and then film your break-up? Buy your 16-year-old daughter a brand new Range Rover?
Oh yeah, about that Range Rover, Kendall Jenner stepped outside a restaurant following her sweet sixteen dinner to find a bow wrapped Range Rover! A photo of Kendall receiving the gift is below. I’m sure the entire event will also be chronicled by E! as it was reported that Kendall is getting her very own Sweet Sixteen special, which included her shopping for a car.
In other Kardashian news, Kris J’s mother, Mary Jo, is speaking out about Kim’s latest shenanigan — you know, that divorce she recently filed for — and advising her to step out of the public eye for a while. “She has been urging Kim to do this ever since she filed for divorce from Kris [Humphries],” a source comments. “She thinks reality TV is destroying her life!”
Kim’s very wise grandmother is encouraging her to take a “two year break from reality TV,” an insider tells HollywoodLife. What should Kim do away from the spotlight? “Travel to some other country and live there for a while and stay single for the time being,” the insider adds.
And echoing recent reports of tension amongst the Kardashian family over Kim’s latest ploy for attention jeopardizing the family’s career, the insider is claiming that Mary Jo has been arguing with her daughter Kris over their latest media blitz to defend Kim’s actions! “She is fed up with Kris continually pushing her daughters to be in the public eye and now it is back firing,” the source declares. Juicy!

Life & Style magazine, which got exclusive rights to Kim’s wedding pics, released the picture (above) of Kim with her new NFL husband Kroy Biermann.
Kim, 33, tied the knot with Kroy, 26, on Friday in front of their closest family and friends. “I just remember thinking, this is the day I’ve waited my whole life for,” Kim tells Life & Style. “I really do feel like I’m dreaming.”
Kim wore a $58,000 pre-owned, handmade Baracci gown made of Duchess satin and embellished with Swarovski crystals, pearls and embroidered lace. Yes, you read that right, it was a used wedding dress.
This marks the second marriage for Kim and the first for Kroy. Kim has two daughters from a previous relationship and a previous marriage. Life & Style promises more exclusive images and details from Kim’s wedding in their next issue.
Meanwhile, Kim took some time off her newlywed bliss today to fire back at her castmate Nene Leakes for the comments she made about her daughters! On last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Nene stated Kim now had three kids by three different men!
Kim tweeted about Nene: “Real cute how Nene loves 2 talk abt my kids she needs to worry abt keeping hers out of jail!” Ouch!
When a user tweeted this to Kim: @Kimzolciak don’t NeNe’s kids have different dads? Just saying… No one should forget where THEY came from, Kim responded with, “Exactly! Pot calling the kettle.”

With Real Housewives of Orange County in the midst of filming Season 7 the OG of Housewives are coming out in force to self-promote the most boring of the HW franchise!
The original Jesus Barbie, Alexis Bellino (who is competing with RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga for the esteemed title), is speaking out about merging faith with Botox and Jesus with Juvederm. Taking to her website, Alexis blogs about being a good Christian with her DD enhancements! How dare anyone accuse her otherwise.
“It seems everyone is looking for contradictory behavior that ‘proves’ I’m not a ‘real’ Christian,” she snips. “Here’s an example: Some have said, ‘If you believe in God and that He has a plan, isn’t it going against His plan to alter your body with breast augmentation or Botox?’” According to Alexis – no, it’s not!
Shorts-shorts be damned! “Part of me wants to slap on my shortest shorts, hop on my soapbox in my highest spike heels and start yelling out things like, ‘What kind of Christian would YOU like me to be?’ Um, one who doesn’t appear on my TV?
“What kind of Christian — who isn’t supposed to judge — would say that someone isn’t a ‘real’ Christian because of a wardrobe choice,” she ponders? “When I decided to come onto Real Housewives, I did so for a few reasons, not the least of which was to raise up the Lord so that even if one young woman saw that I believed, they could too.”
“I believe it is okay for me to have a procedure done on my body because it boosts my confidence and I believe that God wants me to be happy.”
Alexis is also fired up that some people would have the audacity to question whether it was faithful of her to appear on Playboy Radio! Seriously? “I have knowingly opened myself up to be criticized, chastised, and judged. But when I post something on Facebook about going on Playboy Radio and I am told I’m not Christian, it makes me scratch my head,” she seethes.
“Did you know that Playboy gives millions of dollars to charities all over the world, including March of Dimes, and several other children’s organizations?” Except… oh, nevermind! Don’t bother calling Alexis a hypocrite – because she doesn’t know the meaning of the word!
In other OC news, Vicki Gunvalson took a break from work to celebrate some good news! Her daughter Briana Wolfsmith is engaged! The 24 year-old nurse’s engagement was announced by Vicki via Twitter!

THOUGHTS ON ALEXIS’ STATEMENTS ABOUT PLASTIC SURGER AND FAITH? WAS IT WRONG FOR HER TO APPEAR ON PLAYBOY RADIO? THOUGHTS ON BRIANA’S ENGAGEMENT?
Imani Showalter’s feud with cast mate Laura Govan reached a boiling point before heading to paradise, with Imani purging all of Laura’s belongings she’d once promised to house. However, once in Hawaii, the pair realized that there was a common denominator in all the women’s petty fights… and that same thread is Jackie Christie.
In a recent interview, Imani talks about how she looked up to Jackie with her long marriage and her life experience, thus when Jackie told Imani that longtime friend Laura had been spreading lies around town Imani was quick to believe her. Once she hashed out her issues with Laura (Imani reveals the two minute conversation that viewers witnessed was a much smaller portion of a thirty minute discussion), the pair realized that they had heard a lot of similar gossip about each other from the same source. When the ladies realized that Jackie seemed to be pitting them against one another, Imani’s eyes were opened to her former friend.
Imani states, “For me it was just very malicious and evil. I think she’s a really sad person. I feel bad for her.” As for the state of their friendship now? Imani reveals that it is “non-existent.” Imani had trusted Jackie and now she is seeing another side to her former pal. She continues, “Jackie has a way of talking you to death.” ”
When discussing the ladies’ confrontation with Mrs. Christie, Imani says, “Basically she was typical Jackie: She got loud, aggressive, rude, insulting. Then she started crying and whining, and then she got apologetic. She’s very bipolar, and she confuses you.”
As for Imani’s relationship with Laura, everything is still copasetic. Still, Imani doesn’t regret sending Laura’s stuff to storage, admitting, “It just kept coming to me all this negative stuff and I just felt so used by her.” She stands by her decision, asserting, “At the time, I didn’t feel bad.”
Thankfully, Laura and Imani are better than fine. Imani gushes, “I love Laura! I love her mom; I love her children.” She does, however, regret letting Jackie’s rumors come between her and her friend. Imani explains, “It was really sad. It was infuriating. It was a gambit of emotions.” She continues, “I just felt like I had been betrayed on the worst level. I didn’t understand why Jackie would do such a thing. Me and Laura were so close.”
Of course, Imani finds a lesson in this less than stellar situation. She advises, “I’ve learned not to overreact to things and just believe everything you hear.” Imani says, “I realize now that you have to dig a little deeper and look at your source and kind of understand what they have to gain by telling you things.”
While it’s nice to know that Imani and Laura’s mended fences have lasted there is no doubt more drama left in the season, even with just one episode left. The season finale airs tonight (8pm ET) on VH1, with a two part reunion on the 21st and 28th of November. John Salley will once again be returning as host so you know the questions you want answered won’t be asked.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IMANI’S INTERVIEW? IS IT ALL JACKIE’S FAULT OR IS THERE SOME TRUTH TO WHAT SHE SAYS? HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT JOHN SALLEY RETURNING TO HOST THE REUNION?
