Chynna Phillips

The widely anticipated 13th season of Dancing With The Stars premiered last night, and it did not disappoint!

There were some surprises and a few let downs when it came to this new group of 12 celebrities. We’ll start off with the show’s most controversial contestant ever Chaz Bono, who has been receiving some backlash due to the fact that he is transgendered.

So how did Chaz, 42, measure up? Not too shabby. Chaz alongside his partner Lacey Schwimmer, gave a pretty memorable first performance which garnered him 17 points for his cheeky and fun cha cha. “Chazzy Boy, you can dance!” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Bruno Tonioli added, “So cuddly and cute. Great, great debut, Chaz. You should be proud.”

The best performers of the night were Chynna Phillips, and war veteran turned soap star J.R. Martinez. Chynna sizzled with her graceful waltz, earning her the highest score of the night – 22 points. “You looked like you stepped out of a dream and into my heart,” said Bruno. J.R. tied with Chynna for the high score with his impressive Viennese waltz.

In the middle of the pack were reality stars Kristin Cavallari and Rob Kardashian. Kristin fared a bit better than Rob, receiving a decent score of 19 points for her feisty cha-cha with partner Mark Ballas. Kristin definitely showed some promise with her fiery stage presence! With his famous sisters in the audience cheering him on, Rob failed to impress as he received a score of 16 for his waltz with Cheryl Burke. “I’m not impressed, but I’m not depressed,” said judge Len Goodman.

This season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace also had a so-so debut as the 51-year-old news anchor received 16 points for her sassy cha-cha with newcomer Tristan MacManus. “You got the moves, but you don’t seem to believe in yourself,” said Len.

Below are the full scores from last night -

Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani – 22
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff – 22
Hope Solo & Maksim Chmerkovskiy – 21

The official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 13 have now been released!

Above is the first glimpse of Chaz Bono, the first transgendered contestant on the show, in his dancing costume alongside partner Lacey Schwimmer. As we reported, the casting of Chaz, 42, has proven to be a rather controversial one for ABC with some fans voicing their disapproval.

Below are more photos of the remaining “stars” which includes David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Carson Kressley and their dancing partners!

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting today that Rob Kardashian has been slacking off when it comes to practicing his dance moves. Rob’s partner Cheryl Burke is reportedly “fed up” with him as he refuses to practice for more than 2 hours with her. Other contestants are putting in over 5 hours a day.

Cheryl now feels this shows Rob’s lack of interest in doing the show. And while he’s busy not practicing, Rob is reportedly bragging to his older sister Kimmie Kardashian that he will top her DWTS performance by making it past week 3. Good luck with that one Robbie!

Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on Sep. 19 at 8/7c.

Val is the younger brother of DWTS hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy. And despite the speculation that we might be getting the first same-sex couple this season, openly gay style guru Carson Kressley is paired up with a female partner.

Returning this season is three-time champ Derek Hough after taking a break last season. Derek is paired up with Ricki Lake.

Below are the full pairings for DWTS Season 13 -

Meanwhile this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, who is arguably the biggest casting surprise this year, is speaking out on doing the show.

In a new interview, Nancy reveals she thought she was dreaming when she got the call from DWTS. “I feel like Cinderella that got invited to the ball. I don’t know how to dance,” Nancy, 51, states. “I don’t know what I’m going to wear, but I know I have been invited.”

Nancy adds, “I want to have fun. Ever since my fiance was killed in ’79, my whole life has been about putting bad guys away, going to law school, making law review, trying cases, representing crime victims – and this is such a departure, to get to dress up in crazy outfits and dance. Are you kidding me?!” Nancy also states she is NOT counting on Casey Anthony’s vote!

The new season of DWTS premieres Sep. 19 on ABC.

The new cast of Dancing with the Stars season 13 has been unveiled!

Following weeks of speculation, ABC officially announced the 12 latest “stars” who will be vying for the mirror ball trophy. While reports stated the network was working hard this season to get A-list celebs, it appears they fell rather short of that goal. The biggest name on the list is arguably actor David Arquette.

Other big names include this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, Cher’s transgendered son Chaz Bono, Ricki Lake, and soccer player Hope Solo.

The biggest surprise might be the addition of fashion guru Carson Kressley, who is mostly known for his role on Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The casting of Carson is quickly fueling speculation that DWTS might have its first same sex couple this season!

And unfortunately for Housewives fans, RHOBH star Kim Richards did not make the cut. It was reported days ago that Kim was on the short list to get added to the cast. Kim tweeted late yesterday, “Sadly I’m not on #DWTS this season! That would have been so fun, good luck to everyone on it! It will be an amazing journey:) goodnight all!”

The complete list of “stars” below:

David Arquette, actor
Ron Artest, NBA player
Chaz Bono, LGBT activist (son of Sonny Bono and Cher)
Elisabetta Canalis, former girlfriend of George Clooney
Kristin Cavallari, reality TV star
Nancy Grace, TV talk-show host
Rob Kardashian, reality TV star
Carson Kressley, reality TV star
Ricki Lake, actress
J.R. Martinez, war veteran and actor
Chynna Phillips, singer

The new season premieres September 19 on ABC at 8/7c.

According to a new report, The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari has signed on to appear on Dancing With The Stars!

Perez Hilton confirms Kirstin, who recently made headlines after being dumped by her NFL fiance Jay Cutler, will join the likes of Rob Kardashian and other rumored “stars” such as Chynna Phillips and Tiffani Thiessen on the upcoming season.

Kristin follows in the dance steps of fellow ‘The Hills’ alum Audrina Patridge, who appeared on an earlier season of the ABC hit show.

Meanwhile, days after TMZ reported Snooki and Queen Latifah had signed on for the show, Snooki aka Nicole Polizzi is now denying the story a la Queen Latifah’s earlier denial. Snooki tweeted Tuesday, “I love watching Dancing with the Stars but I am not apart of the cast ! Sorry Tweedos.”

A new report by the HollywoodLife however states this might be a negotiation ploy by the Snooks. Apparently she is still in talks to do the show but is holding out for more money.

“They are still trying to make the deal with Snooki,” dishes a source. “She was verbally in, but has yet to sign anything. She has been very concerned with the schedule and what she will be paid.”

ABC is reportedly in a rush to finalize the cast as soon as possible as the cast is being announced Aug. 29 during the Bachelor Pad. “The producers are confident that she will still join the show, but if she continues to hold out, they have people that will fill her spot. They always overcast the show,” adds the insider.
