In reality, Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough took home the mirror ball trophy last night, but Kim did finally get to perform the I Dream Of Jeannie inspired Samba she was schedule to do the week she withdrew. “It was very emotional,” shared Kim. “I had a stroke when I left. I had heart surgery three weeks ago. So, to be back here doing my dance, it goes way beyond the show and the experience. I am so thankful to be here.” See the weepy video Kim posted on Instagram after her 30 seconds of Samba below.
Happy Monday morning!(?) We’re kicking things off with a little peek at some of the best and worst reality TV star fashions from the past few days! On Sunday night Porsha Williams, Heidi Klum and Padma Lakshmi attended the Primetime Emmy Awards
NeNe Leakes attended the 2015 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party at Fig & Olive Melrose Place. Lisa Vanderpump stepped out for the MTAC 2015 Art Festival at The Autry National Center.
Below are photos of this season’s stars – Gary Busey, Kim, Bindi Irwin, Nick Carter, Hayes Grier, Victor Espinoza, Chaka Khan, Alek Skarlatos, Paula Deen, Alexa PenaVega, Carlos PenaVega, Andy Grammer, and Tamar – with their pro partners. Season 21 of Dancing with the Stars begins Monday, September 14th on ABC. Do you plan to watch this season?
As for the pro dancers, one of my favorite Dancing with the Stars pros, Anna Trebunskaya, is back. Unfortunately, she has been paired with Gary Busey. Why can’t I have nice things?!? Also disappointing, Peta Murgatroyd is out for the season due to an ankle injury. Peta was supposed to dance with “Honey I’m Good” singer Andy Grammer. He’ll dance with Allison Holker instead. Check out the complete list below and let us know if you plan to watch.
My mind is blown. I cannot believe how many reality TV stars welcomed babies this year.
Snooki & JWoww star Jenni Farley gave birth to her first child in July. “She is here!” proud daddy Roger Mathews shared on Twitter. “Meilani Alexandra Mathews, 7 lbs, 13 ounces. Words can’t describe what looking into your child’s eyes can do to you. I’m humbled.”

Some seasons, like this one, the only reason I turn on the premiere is to see my favorite pros dance. Luckily I always find a star or two to root for along the way. But my interest fades a little bit each time one of the pros I like to watch – Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus, Chelsie Hightower, Kym Johnson, and Maks come to mind – leaves the show.
This week Chris and Jacqueline Laurita stepped out for the kick off of the Autism Speaks Light it Up Blue Campaign at the New York Stock Exchange.

Kyle Richards met up with Taylor Armstrong for lunch at The Ivy, Bethenny Frankel was red hot in NYC, Ramona Singer stepped out with hubby Mario and Kim Kardashian pushed North West through the airport.
