Cheryl Burke

Dancing With The Stars pros Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Cheryl Burke were caught red handed making out during the Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas!

Above is a photo of the two dancers kissing at the Moon nightclub at the Palms on Saturday. At first the photos (which have since been removed from the club’s website) flew under the radar as the kissing was actually taking place in the background of a pic.

However twitter user @DWTS_Gossip noticed the action going on in the background of some of the pics. In other pics posted below, hotness Maksim can be seen holding Cheryl close while grabbing her hair.

Fast forward to today and Maksim and his reps are in damage control mode, denying he and Cheryl were kissing. According to the rep, Maksim “was merely whispering in a fan’s ear in a loud nightclub.” Albeit a fan who happened to be wearing the same exact dress as Cheryl with the same exact hair style.

But there is good reason for the damage control. Why you ask? Well Maksim is currently starring on the Ukraine version of The Bachelor (oddly enough the finale episode airs tonight in the country) and is under a strict contract which forbids him from, you know, making out in public with women who are not his finalists on the show.

This would be equivalent to Brad Womack getting photographed making out with a random woman the same week his final pick episode was scheduled to air on ABC. Fans of the show are said to be upset.

As for Maksim and Cheryl, the two have been romantically linked in the past as they reportedly briefly dated a few years back. The two deny there is any romance going on today so perhaps it was just an alcohol fueled make-out session. In the past, Maksim was previously engaged to DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff while Cheryl admitted earlier this year that she did have a fling with her former dance partner Chad Ochocinco.

And then there were six. In a predictable turn of events, the lowest scoring star got the boot on Tuesday’s results show of Dancing With The Stars.

Yes, wrestler Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burke were sent packing following their lackluster Tango on Monday night. Chris’s elimination proves this season is still up for grabs as just a week ago, he was tied for second place.

Chris, 40, was however a great sport about his elimination. “It’s actually good timing, because I have to fly over to England for the royal wedding,” he joked upon hearing the news. “No, but honestly, it wasn’t my best dance last night, and at this point you have to be your best because everyone’s so evenly matched,” he added.

Chris then went on to praise his partner Cheryl. “The only reason I got this far is because of Cheryl. She’s a great performer, she’s become a friend for life…I haven’t seen my kids in four weeks, so it’s time for Chris Jericho the Dancer to step aside and Chris Jericho the Daddy to come back.” he said.

Meanwhile, former American Idol contestant Pia Toscano gave her widely talked about performance during which her new beau Mark Ballas and Karina Smirnoff danced while she sang “I’ll Stand by You.”

And of course show host Tom Bergeron had to ask Pia about her romance with Mark. Tom didn’t ask if they were dating, simply asking her if Mark was a good kisser. “He’s a wonderful person,” was Pia’s reply. Well played Tom Pia. Well played.

The remaining six contestants live to compete once again next Monday.

TELL US – DID THE RIGHT CONTESTANT GO HOME?

There were no surprises last night on Dancing With The Stars as the star with the lowest combined score from the first two dances got the boot.

Radio host “Psycho” Mike Catherwood was the first to be eliminated this season after finding himself in the bottom three with Wendy Williams and Sugar Ray Leonard.

“It’s been nothing but a pleasurable experience,” said Mike, 32, of his time on the show. “It sucks to be sent home first, but I’ve made a lot of good friends,” he added. “America obviously knows that Lacey Schwimmer is a beautiful person on the outside, but everybody needs to know she’s equally, if not more, beautiful on the inside. I’ve made a lifelong friend.”

Do not feel sorry for Mike yet as there continues to be rumblings that he is being considered to replace Regis Philbin on Live With Regis & Kelly. Mike, a guest host on the show recently, confirmed ABC has invited him back to co-host a future episode.

Singer Chris Brown performed two songs on the show last night and it all went without a glitch as no windows were broken nor was he interviewed by show host Tom Bergeron. See, following Chris’s outburst at GMA last week, there had been some controversy surrounding his DWTS performance.

Tom went on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this week and stated “I did tell the producers it may be to their advantage to not have me interview him.” The reason? “Don’t put me in a position where you’re asking me to not say something,” said Tom, adding “cause I won’t really do that. Even if it’s just a snarky little aside, you know, ‘How was your week?’”

Also, dancer Cheryl Burke spoke out against Chris this week. “As a victim of domestic violence, I don’t agree with him coming on the show, but it’s out of my control,” said Cheryl to Extra. Wendy Williams also stated on her talk show last week that she was “disgusted with this little boy” following his GMA incident.

Next week, the stars return to compete on Monday night with a clean slate.

Days after announcing the celebrity-star pairings, ABC has now unveiled the official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 12.

Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louis van Amstel. According to numerous reports, Kendra, 25, is the favorite to win the show.

Meanwhile, 60-year-old actress Kirstie Alley is hoping to use the show as a weight loss vehicle. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” the former Jenny Craig spokesperson told US Magazine this week. “And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work. It’s exciting.”

That should no problem for Kirstie, who is paired with hotness/tough hard-ass teacher Maksim Chmerkovskiy . The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars will officially kick off on March 21.

The ‘Jolly Green Giant’ received the axe on last night’s Dancing With The Stars results show.

Despite receiving his highest score this week for his Quickstep, 41-year-old former NBA player Rick Fox still found himself on the chopping block, making it the second week in a row the lowest scoring star was not eliminated on DWTS.

“It’s been a transformational journey for me,” Rick said following his elimination. “It’s been amazing. My relationship has transformed with my girlfriend, my daughter – it’s the most enjoyable time having her here and sharing this with me.” Rick’s actress girlfriend Eliza Dushku sat in the audience with his daughter.

Rick also had some nice words to say about his partner Cheryl Burke. “What I’ll take out of this competition,” he said, “is a friendship with Cheryl and, hopefully, 15 to 20 new dance moves.”

On next week’s episode of DWTS, the show will be doing something its never done before. Maksim Chmerkovskiy tells E! News, ” They’re going to give us the dance after the show tonight but they won’t give us the music. So we’re going to have to prepare a dance without the music and get the music next Monday [during the show] and…we’ll have 20 minutes to prepare our dance.”

Maksim, who feels that the new change is really unfair, also adds, “I’m not really sure if I think it’ll make for great TV. I just think it’s absolutely unnecessary pressure on celebrities that are already under pressure. “

Chad OchocincoRubi Pazmino of Ochocinco the Ultimate Catch

The finale of The Ultimate Catch ended last night with Chad Ochocinco throwing us for a loop by actually picking one of the finalists, contrary to the rumors that he didn’t pick anyone.

The lucky Mrs. Ochocinco ended up being Rubi Pazmino, which came as no surprise considering she was his #1 pick from the start.

The shocker however is the fact that Chad and Rubi are still together! In a new interview with VH1, Rubi discusses how she and Chad are making things work, talks about her singing career, and also addresses the rumors that Chad is dating Basketball WivesEvelyn Lozada.

Excerpts from Rubi’s interview below -

What has it been like since the show? Is this, in fact, for real? Have you been pursuing something with Chad?

Yes. We’ve definitely been talking. We talk all the time, everyday. And we definitely have an amazing connection. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say, but we do get to see each other and it’s been way more intimate and way more real since the show because you don’t have all these other women getting in the way. You get to have real conversations. There’s no stress, no time limits. There’s a lot of a possibility.

What do you make of the rumor that he’s dating Basketball Wives‘ Evelyn?

Even while we were on the show a lot of girls were saying he was with her. There have always been rumors. It wasn’t a huge shock to me when I heard that it was out there in the media. But just like with anybody, when you hear a rumor you just ask like, “Hey what’s going on?” I asked him about it. He said Evelyn’s a friend of his, they didn’t have anything and they’re friends. And that’s all. If someone tells you something, you just have to believe them. I’m not gonna sit there and ask him every two seconds. I asked him once and he answered it and that’s enough.

Was your career as a singer ever a consideration for signing up for the show?

You always think about your career, wondering if a given situation is gonna be a negative or a positive. I wondered, “Hey is this gonna be something that’s bad for what I do?” Obviously that’s a no. I’d be a super lazy person not to take advantage of the things I’m reaping now because of the show. It’d be dumb. And what I do of course depends on fan base and popularity and if this helps it, great. And Chad absolutely has no problem with it.

Would you go as far as to call it love?

I think love is a super strong word. Do we have the material and the hard work to make it to love? Yes. I think we definitely have the material to get there. But should we say love love love as of right now? I don’t know. It’s a love. Like I luv him, like L-U-V. He probably feels the same way about me. But we definitely have the potential to be able to get there.

Rubi might be in for some bumps in this relationship as one of the show’s contestants, Heather, gave an interview to Bossip, during which she claimed Chad was still trying to hook up with her after eliminating her on the show. Heather also alleged Chad was still calling his former Dancing With The Stars partner Cheryl Burke, and sending her gifts while filming the show.

Dancing With The Stars

The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.

There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star, The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.

Above is this season’s Kate Gosselin Bristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.

Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”

As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.

And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.

The favorites to win at the moment? Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy according to Las Vegas odds.
