You have to love what constitutes a star these days…especially in the eyes of ABC execs when they are casting Dancing with the Stars. You can't really blame them though…whenLindsay Lohan turns down the show, it may be time to call it quits.
As always, rumors are swirling about who may foxtrotting across the ballroom. Some of the names being tossed around are more believable than others, and some would be pure television gold if the gossip proves to be true. Likewise, the speculation is often more exciting than the dancing itself. ABC's Bachelorette darling Emily Maynard's name has been thrown into the mix, as well as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon. How amazing would that be?
It's no secret that Dancing with the Stars proVal Chmerkovskiy and General Hospital star Kelly Monaco shared an undeniable chemistry on the Dancing with the Stars dance floor. What has remained a secret, however, is whether or not the All Stars pair have put that chemistry to good use off the dance floor. I hope so, because they are hot, hot, hot together.
Honestly, I find it slightly amusing that Val and Kelly's chemistry continues to be a hot topic. I mean, I've continued to stalk follow them, as I'm a fan of the Chmerkovskiy brothers, but I didn't think many others would be interested this long after the season finale. Nevertheless, speculation surrounding Val and Kelly's relationship status persists, with the latest report claiming that they're now officially an item.
Dancing with the StarsAll Stars was a bore for fans and a disappointment for ABC. And, after seeing a dip in DWTS' viewer numbers (11-16 million for all stars compared to the previous season's 13-18 million), ABC has decided the show has seen its day we want to see less good dancers and more train wrecks. Oh joy!
First, General Hospital star Kelly Monaco and the talented and delicious Valentin Chmerkovskiy danced the paso doble (29.5/30) and a recreation of Dirty Dancing's iconic "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" dance for their freestyle (29.5/30). Kelly and Val's combined score for the night was 59/60.
The Bachelor's Melissa Rycroft and deserves-to-win Tony Dovolani (he put up with Kate Gosselin!) chose the samba (30/30). The pair took a risk for their freestyle, dancing a contemporary dance. It's safe to say the risk was worth it, as Len was left nearly speechless. The breathtaking dance earned the pair another perfect score. Melissa and Tony's combined score for the night was 60/60.
Finally, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and the master of choreography Derek Hough revisited their we're-above-the-rules quickstep (27/30) and danced a fantastic but gymnastics heavy freestyle that incorporated the "Fierce Five" (30/30). Shawn and Derek's combined score for the night was 57/60.
For the first time in Dancing with the Stars history, three women and their partners go head to head for the trophy… not just any Mirror Ball Trophy… this is the All Stars Trophy! Who wins?

I think we all can agree that Kirstie Alley's middle name these days is TMI. Promoting her new book The Art of Men (I Prefer Mine al Dente), the Dancing with the Stars contestant has been dropping bombs about her life and loves all over the media. Someone needs to put a muzzle on her. STAT!
I'm not sure which recent story is the best. There's the tidbit about John Travolta being the love of her life, her forbidden feelings for Patrick Swayze, and, of course, her giant cocaine addiction. Where to begin? Where to begin?
The last we heard, ABC wanted Emily Maynard back for Bachelorette 2013.Emilyhas yet to respond to ABC's invitation. However, according to one source, a second season is not likely. "Emily tried something new, dating Jef," Emily's pal explained to US Weekly. "She is going back to what she knows and considers safe." That Emily… she really gave the regular folk a try, but it just didn't work out.
Now, it sounds like Emily has found a new man to play the role of husband in her made-for-TV wedding on her own. Over the weekend, Emily was reportedly spotted out on a date. Her date, Jason White, is a Nascar (ie, known and safe) truck racer. "They were all over each other," a source said. "Jason guided her through the crowd and held her hand as they walked downstairs."
Now that princess Emily is otherwise engaged and Cheryl is single again, wil Cheryl get the gig?
Pamela Anderson, who was eliminated sixth in season 10, is probably not going to win Dancing with the Stars All Stars. Still, it’s fun to dream. When asked what she would do if she won the mirrorball trophy, Pamela insists she’d carry it everywhere. She says, “I’d have a lot of parties afterward, but that goes without saying!”
She adds, “I don’t know if I could handle it. I don’t know if I could spiritually handle it if I won.”
On a serious note, Pamela says, “That’d be nuts. I’m not going to go there… I’m going to dance to dance.” She dances with cutie pie Tristan MacManusthis season.
Look out Dancing With the Stars fans! The All-Stars edition is going to bring the drama…and the professional dancers’ A game.
Veteran pro Cheryl Burke is concerned about how to step up her game. It’s all about costumes, choreography, and celebrity. The three C’s I guess you could say. And Cheryl should know…three of the returning All-Stars graced the dance floor as partners with this pro.
