Dancing With the Stars returned for its 12th season on ABC Monday night with a night full of surprises!

Front runner Kendra Wilkinson did not come out on top despite being declared the early favorite. Kendra found herself closer to the bottom of the pack, only scoring an 18 for her cha cha dance.

The biggest surprise of the night however was 60-year-old Kirstie Alley who wowed both the audience and the judges with her high spirited cha cha dance, earning a score of 23. Kirstie and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy brought a lot of fun, energy and silliness into their dance. In fact, judge Bruno Tonioli declared it “the best of the night.”

And while Kirstie earned the highest score in the cha cha category, the ‘Karate Kid’ Ralph Macchio scored the highest points of the night, garnering a 24 for his foxtrot with partner Karina Smirnoff. “What an amazing surprise!” said Carrie Ann Inaba. “It shocked me that you had such elegance.” Len Goodman went on to declare his performance “the best foxtrot tonight.”

Failing to sizzle was talk show queen Wendy Williams, who earned a low score of 14 for her stiff cha cha with partner Tony Dovolani, who Wendy did not know who he was during their first meeting. USA Today‘s Ann Oldenburg called Wendy’s performance “awful” adding that “the talk show host was stiffer than Kate Gosselin when she took the floor for her cha cha cha.” Ouch.

Promising were Disney starlet Chelsea Kane and NFL player Hines Ward. Next Monday, all of the 11 stars will return to the ballroom for a new dance. Votes and scores from the first two weeks will be combined to determine who goes home on the first live results show next Tuesday, March 29.

The full scoreboard from last night is below -

Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 24
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 23
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 21
Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 21
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 19
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 19
Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett & Louis Van Amstel: 18
Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin: 18
Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya: 17
Wendy Williams & Tony Dovolani: 14
Mike Catherwood & Lacey Schwimmer: 13

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S DEBUT? WERE YOU SHOCKED BY KIRSTIE’S GOOD PERFORMANCE?


The third episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County aired last night with what felt like a night of TMIs. From Gretchen’s sex talk about Slade to the marital nightmare between the Bellinos, ending with the Tamra soft-core bathtub scene with Eddie. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!

The episode beings with mogul Gretchen, who is clearly still harboring some resentment over Alexis‘s princess comment, as she dons a tiara to open the door for Alexis. For someone who claims to be very busy, Gretchen sure seems to have a lot of time to waste shopping for tiaras, and getting princess license plates. Perhaps this is why she needed an assistant. Alexis regrets the day she ever uttered the word princess, and following a brief chat, the ladies head out to do some shopping while I attempt to make sense of Alexis’s maxi dress.

An all new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the new episode titled “It’s My Baptism and I’ll Cry If I Want To,” Gina takes Bethenny, Jason and Bryn to her Trinidadian church to give Bryn a “blessing.” Once the ceremony is underway, Jason and Bethenny suddenly realize it seems much more like a baptism than just a simple blessing. Feeling misguided and upset, Bethenny and Jason explain their feelings to Gina. Meanwhile, Jason’s parents come to New York for Bryn’s official Christening ceremony and also get to join in the fun of her first Halloween.

In other Bethenny Frankel news, her former assistant Max Meisel is now speaking out and attempting to defend himself following a firing scolding by Bethenny on last week’s episode. Bethenny stated Max was slacking on the job, was more interested in the glitz than the actual work, and had become a liability, citing an incident in which he asked her husband Jason Hoppy for a condom.

In his Bravo blog, Max defends himself, stating while he wasn’t perfect, he was a good employee and that boundaries should not have been a problem stating that on the “third day on the job Bethenny asked me the oldest girl I’ve had sex with.” Excerpts from Max’s blog below in which he seems to take some not so subtle shots at Bethenny -

“Alrighty, so before you write me off as the worst assistant on the planet, please hear me out… The conversation with Jason about condoms at the SkinnyGirl Party was taken way out of context. As inappropriate as it sounded, it didn’t take place exactly how it was pitched. It was a “guys talking at a bar”-kind of situation, however, I understand it was the wrong thing to talk about. I hold Jason in extremely high regard and I would never intentionally do anything to demean that. I didn’t mean to cross a line. I didn’t know where the boundaries began and where they ended. My third day on the job Bethenny asked me the oldest girl I’ve had sex with. It seemed as if some days there there were boundaries and some days there were none.

Bethenny made a very bold statement about my motives for wanting to become her assistant. She believes I wanted to be around for the attention and the “red carpet glitz.” The way she spoke, you’d think I had been hanging with Cameron Diaz and Mark Wahlberg as a result of working for her. I can assure you, although Bethenny has risen in popularity substantially over the last few years, I didn’t look towards her as the fast track to popularity.

I can’t begin to explain how out of my comfort zone I’ve been with every task I’ve performed. From picking thongs out of a drawer to building a crib, from purchasing her underwear to picking out her wardrobe, it’s all been as foreign as learning Chinese. I want to reiterate that I’m not making excuses for my mistakes. I acknowledge that I haven’t always been in top form. I’m writing this to shed a different shade of light on the situation.”

Interesting comments by Max. A preview clip of the new episode is below.  Max Meisel photo credit – Jesse Dittmar.

As the days go by, it’s starting to seem more and more plausible that Evelyn Lozada will not be returning to Basketball Wives.

For starters, TMZ reported last week that Evelyn gave the show producers an ultimatum to either pay her $20,000 an episode or she walks for good. Sources close to the production told TMZ that Evelyn and her costars currently pull in around $7,500 an episode.

And then just yesterday, TMZ reported that Evelyn is in talks with the E! network regarding a spinoff show with fiance Chad Ochocinco. Sources close to Evelyn reveal that E! approached her with the new offer as soon as they discovered she wanted to quit Basketball Wives.

As for the reason Evelyn wants to quit the show, she is reportedly very upset with the way the finale episode turned out and is blaming producers for instigating the fight between her and costar Tami Roman. Evelyn has yet to make a final decision but sources add that she and Chad are seriously entertaining the E! offer.

And speaking of Chad and Evelyn, the couple spoke to PEOPLE magazine during which they both stated they will not be rushing to the altar anytime soon.

“He has four kids. I have one. We want to be engaged for at least a year and enjoy our time with our children, and then we’re going to plan our wedding,” Evelyn told PEOPLE, adding that they would both like to have more children. “The more kids, the happier I am,” she said.

So how does Chad feel about the dramatic finale of Basketball Wives during which Evelyn admitted to having once slept with former NBA player Kenny Anderson, while he was still married to costar Tami? Chad revealed all is well because they don’t hide anything from each other.

“I know everything about her, so there are no surprises,” said Chad. “My grandma says, ‘Always marry your best friend, because your best friend will be able to tell you anything and not hide nothing.’ That’s one of the things I really like, which is one of the reasons why she’s wearing that ring.”

Evelyn added that she had a hard time dealing with the backlash from the show. “I was having a hard time [watching],” she said. “I have a lot of followers on Twitter, so everyone has an opinion on your life, and they think they know you. Some of the things they say are hurtful, but he made me keep it together. He’s very supportive with everything.”

Kate Gosselin was all smiles as she celebrated her 36th birthday last Friday in New York City minus her plus 8.

The Kate Plus 8 star, who’s birthday is actually on March 28, alongside a small group of friends (Kate has friends?) got together at the NYC STK restaurant to celebrate. She showed off lots of leg while sporting a classic little black dress.

According to the HollywoodLife, Kate’s bodyguard Steve Nield was also present at the party though they didn’t get photographed together. While the TLC cameras were on hand to film Kate entering the restaurant with a friend (really, Kate has friends?), Steve reportedly ducked into the restaurant ahead of time to keep from being spotted with her. Sources reveal Steve had very little contact with Kate during the festivities.

And the very next day, Kate was photographed shopping at FAO Schwarz in NYC with a gal pal and her bodyguard Steve. Those photos are below.

Kate Plus 8 returns to the TLC network with new episodes on April 4.


The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars premieres tonight on ABC as eleven celebrities will step into the ballroom vying for that Mirror Ball trophy.

The celebs this season include Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio, Sugar Ray Leonard, talk show host Wendy Williams, and Kendra Wilkinson.

Kendra, who is the early on favorite to win, reveals her strategy to win this season will be to show off some skin! “If I’m going to go skimpy, I’m going skimpiest,” said Kendra to Extra, adding that her hubby Hank Baskett does not mind. “He’s like, ‘If you’re going to do this, go all in, and don’t be shy about anything.’”

Kendra also reveals she experienced her first injury when she hurt her toe while rehearsing with partner Louis Van Amstel. “I wasn’t wearing my closed-toe ballroom shoes. I was wearing the cha-cha shoes, and I jammed my freakin’ toe in his foot. It hurt really bad.” She added, “No pain, no gain, right?”

Meanwhile, dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy reveals he and his celeb partner Kirstie are actually working well together. “Her strengths are that she wants to do it. She just wants to dance. Sometimes I think she forgets what we are doing,” Maksim dished to In Touch Weekly “I’m like, ‘It’s a show!’ and she’s like, ‘no, just teach me [the steps], I want to dance!’”

The 11 celebrities will either dance the foxtrot or the cha cha cha tonight while the first elimination won’t take place until Tuesday, March 29.

The DWTS two-hour premiere kicks off at 8/7c.

Real Housewives of OC Season 6

Episode 3 of the Real Housewives of Orange County airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the new episode titled “A New Lease On Life,” Alexis, Gretchen and Peggy get together for a day of shopping and socializing. The dinner conversation turns racy when the women share surprising sexual secrets. Alexis and her family head to San Diego for a family vacation; however, the trip turns out to be anything but relaxing for her.

Elsewhere, Gretchen continues to hound Slade during their trip to Palm Springs while Vicki is getting restless in Coto de Casa and wants to sell the house, though Donn is happy to stay put. Tamra wants to take steps to repair her friendship with Vicki and suggests a girls’ weekend in Cabo San Lucas.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Alexis Bellino and Top Chef’s Carla Hall.

In other OC news, Alexis Bellino is revealing that she no longer considers Tamra Barney a true friend, after hearing Tamra’s comments on the latest episode. On last week’s show, Tamra compared Alexis’s husband Jim Bellino to her ex-husband Simon Barney, and then went on to predict Alexis’s marriage will not last. Below are excerpts from Alexis Bravo blog -

“This was so difficult for me to watch, because this is the first time it is brought to my attention that Tamra isn’t actually a friend. I was so shocked after this episode that I was speechless for probably an hour. I do not understand how someone can act like a friend, and be so friendly, do pilates with me, have a cocktail and talk about our friendship, and then say all those mean things about me right afterward. It’s completely beyond me. She compared her marriage to Simon to my marriage with Jim, which I thought was absurd. The only similarity is that Jim and Simon both like a more traditional marriage. We can see now that Tamra didn’t want that; however, I do still want that…

Furthermore, the fact that she would have the audacity to make a prediction about my marriage given that she is divorcing her husband is absolutely ridiculous… I mean, why the heck didn’t she just tell me she didn’t want to do pilates with me that night? It’s disgusting. Actually, I don’t know why I’m so shocked about this. She did the same thing to Vicki last year, acting as if Vicki was her friend to her face, she did the same thing to Gretchen two years ago, and now she is doing it to me. I see a common pattern developing.”

With Lisa Rinna out of the picture, the Celebrity Apprentice battle is now back to Nene Leakes vs Star Jones… or is it?

According to RadarOnline, Nene and Star are apparently trying to call a truce after coming to blows on the NBC show (on a yet to be aired episode), and slamming each other publicly in recent weeks. Example, Star tweeted a while back, “My neck does not turn when I argue a point & I didn’t spin around a pole to earn what I have. Water seeks its own level…#NotOnMine.” While Miss Nene made it clear she “wouldn’t spit on Star if she was on fire.”

A source tells Radar the ladies are now trying to reel it back in fearing the feud has gotten out of hand, Geez you think? “Both NeNe and Star are trying to get along better off set – it was really only when the show started taping that their competitiveness kicked-in,” reveals the source. “NeNe felt slighted by Star who she thought was not showing her enough respect – while Star believed that NeNe was all show and no substance.”

The source adds, “They are both head strong women and NeNe believed Star was trying to boss the other contestants around and on top of that they were feuding over hair, wardrobe and make-up too.”

The two are reportedly “trying to be more accepting of their differences” now. Though we’re not quite sure how accurate this story is as Nene has been recently hanging out with Al Reynolds aka Star’s ex-husband. In fact, Al tweeted a photo this week of himself hanging out with the Nene and Basketball Wives’ Jennifer Williams. That pic is below.

On tonight’s all new episode of Celebrity Apprentice titled “Unhappy Campers,” the celebrities use two RVs to organize a recreation experience in the core of the Big Apple. It’s a bumpy ride, however, when one project manager falls victim to a power grab and the other team questions a leader’s mental competence.

A preview clip is below -
