Last night the Dancing With the Stars mirror ball may have finally gone to Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his partner Meryl Davis, but did the right couple win? Not necessarily! According to TMZ, some outraged fans say that Facebook votes for fan favorite James Maslow and his partner Peta Murgatroyd were counted for Meryl and Maks instead. Which lead to James being voted off the show on Monday night, even though he had much higher scores than Candace Cameron Bure.
Had James stayed would it really have changed the outcome of the winner? Probably not. Let us not forget that Meryl Davis is a professional ice dancer — she was amazing from the beginning. But if the votes were incorrectly counted it may have allowed James to take third place over Candace, still not sure it would have even gotten him into second place.
But a rep for ABC told TMZ "despite the automated Facebook response … the votes were all counted correctly. The rep blew off the apparent error as a 'caching anomaly' that only affected a small amount of users."
And that wasn't all the drama from the ballroom during finale week.
The couple is still hoping Teresa will be able to avoid jail time and in the meantime are putting on a happy front. With Real Housewives of New Jersey starting days after Teresa's sentence is handed down, one of Bravo's most recognizable stars has been suspiciously absent from any network events – even skipping the Upfronts. (Somewhere Melissa Gorga is doing a happy dance that she is finally number 1! Let's hope Poison didn't take any business tips from his brother-in-law.

Last night on Real Housewives of New York the ladies confronted Ramona P. Singer (the P stands for Pinot) about her behavior in the Berkshires. Most specifically a pseudo meltdown that was the perfect segue for her to ditch them and hit up a Molly Simms party in the Hamptons. Oh that Ramona – she's so devious! However, by the sheer power of their conviction and the fortitude of LuAnn de Lesseps' self-described "linebacker shoulders," the ladies were able to make a slight dent in Ramona's AquaNet facade and she actually apologized to Kristen Taekman. How that went is another story, but let's start back in the Berks (can I tell you how tired I am of typing that word… ).
Back in the Berkshires the ladies are are seriously hungover after a night of binge drinking and pinot-trashing. I can assume many a bottle of Ramona Pinot was smashed as well. Heather Thomson wakes everyone up because soon they'll be forced into an AM yoga class. Sonja Morgan awakes in a negligee with the remains of her bumpit! trembling on one side of her head – she's also missing a cubic zirconium diamond earring. Sonja is super sad that Ramona manipulated her and wonders how much of their friendship has been a farce. The other ladies look just as worse for the wear.
It's been a will they or won't they situation as to whether any of the Kardashian sisters will "take" the Hamptons. However, judging by the jitneys of socialites leaving the posh seaside community, I'd say Khloe and Kourtney(with camera crews in tow) are about to crash the high dollar vacation destination.
So who is to blame for this horrendous faux pas? The Kardashians aren't going to be raising the bar regarding the exclusivity of South Hampton, and I'm guessing that many of the hoity residents won't be dying to shop at their newest boutique. Many angry locals are pointing the finger at a South Hampton restaurateur for bringing the krazy.
Is Chris Bukowski in love with this season Bachelorette or is he just in love with being on the Bachelor franchise? Despite what he says, I'm going to go with the latter. First, he was a contestant on Emily Maynard's season. Next, he made the rounds (literally) on Bachelor Pad. Now, Chris is garnering attention for crashing the first cocktail party of Andi Dorfman's season.
Claiming he camped outside the mansion for a week (I don't buy it, ABC), Chris Harrison announced upon Chris' arrival, "We have a party crasher. He's been on the show before." And I'm sure he'll be on it again. And again and again and again.
To promote her latest book, Tori Spelling promised stories of woe surrounding her self-proclaimed financial ruin. Basically, Tori boohooed about being broke to promote Spelling It Like It Is, and then she expected us to believe she bounced back from her dire financial situation shortly after the book's release.
Candy Spelling appeared on The Talk – and she called out Tori's lies.
When Julie Chen asked about Tori's lack of money, Candy said the "rumors" are not true. "I'd never leave my kids in the lurch. I can't imagine any parent doing that – and I'm always there to support her. I even bought them a house in Malibu," boasted Candy. "I think it was an angle she took for her book."
