ABC Dancing With The Stars


Well, I certainly didn't see this gossip coming!  As always on Dancing with the Stars, the producers feel the need to incoporate a Bachelor franchise crossover to make Monday's viewing transition a little more seamless.  Of course, this go-round, Sean Lowe is taking a break from planning his wedding to cha-cha for the mirror ball trophy.  While the virginal good guy may have won over fans while looking for love, sources are saying he's not making any friends among the other DWTS contestants.
On the flip side, Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman is proving to be a break-out star in the competition…and not just because of her killer dancing skills.  People are falling in love with her bubbly personality.  At sixteen, she's the youngest contestant in the show's history, but she's proving that she can dance with the best of them!

Now that the new line-up for Dancing with the Stars has been announced, all things DWTS gossip can commence!  Perhaps the biggest bombshell so far, besides Lisa Vanderpump being the first housewife to dance into our living rooms, has to do with one of the seasoned professionals.  Where is Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

Also, now that Julianne Hough is a bona fide movie star, will her brother Derek continue to dance on the show (well, duh…he needs to find girlfriends!) or will he be looking beyond ABC for other career opportunities?  Burning questions, people, burning questions!  




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…when Lindsay 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 pro Val 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 Stars All 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! 

Now, don't get me wrong, I love a good reality TV train wreck. Um, hello, I've made a career out of reality TV stars' famewhoring and idiocy. But there are a few shows I like to watch for the talent and Dancing with the Stars is one of them. I'd rather not see more Kate Gosselins and Bristol Palins, thank you very much. 

However, after analyzing the numbers, President of ABC Entertainment Paul Lee concluded: "Turns out people like to see bad dancing as much as they do good dancing!"


Monday night on Dancing with the Stars All Stars, Kelly Monaco, Melissa Rycroft, and Shawn Johnson danced for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy.

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?


Not too long ago, Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke expressed interest in being the next Bachelorette. But, when Cheryl started dating hockey pro Joffrey Lupul over the summer, she dropped the issue.

The last we heard, ABC wanted Emily Maynard back for Bachelorette 2013. Emily has 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?
