Dancing With The Stars

Last night’s elimination episode of Dancing With the Stars continued with Monday’s 80′s theme, and I, for one, could just eat that stuff up with a spoon. Who doesn’t love a show that opens with a Madonna dance montage?

Monday night had the “stars” heading back to the time of roller skating rinks, John Hughes movies, Swatches, and Members Only jackets. On 80′s night, America’s sweetheart Ricki Lake left her top spot on the leader board for middle ground territory. J.R. Martinez took the judges’ high honors, and Carson Kressley found himself on the bottom for the second straight week. Ricki Lake and Derek Hough along with Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who had tied scores, are first up on the chopping block. Ricki is safe for one more week, but Hope is the first sent to the bottom three.

Kelly Clarkson performs the first of two songs. The story of Charm Ladonna, a professional dancer, is highlighted. Charm overcame a life of poverty (her mother sometimes wouldn’t pay the bills so she could afford her daughter’s dance classes), and her senior year of high school she scored a spot as one of Madonna’s back-up dancers. After using that money to put herself through college, Charm now volunteers, teaching dance classes to underprivileged youth. Charm takes to the DWTS stage to dance with Mark Ballas and Derek Hough. I think she’d make a great addition to next season.

Next to perform is The Band Perry who, in my opinion, never disappoints. It’s time for the highest scorers from Monday to be highlighted, and I am still just as surprised as I was yesterday that Rob Kardashian is one of them. J.R., Rob, and David Arquette are the next stars to get their results. J.R. and his partner Karina Smirnoff are safe, as are Rob and Cheryl Burke. David and his partner Kym Johnson are sent to the bottom three. Aww, I thought their routine was a hoot!

Taking the stage one more time is Kelly Clarkson. The show highlights the lowest scoring pairs: Carson Kressley, Nancy Grace, and Chaz Bono…none of them receiving particularly harsh critiques from the judges on Monday. Safe are Chaz and and Nancy, and Carson joins Hope Solo and David Arquette in the bottom three. Sadly, it’s the end of the line for Carson Kressley. While he clearly didn’t have the skills of his counterparts, Carson was always fun and entertaining. Even in elimination, he maintained his positive attitude. I wish I could say the same for Hope Solo…did you see the look on her face for the last few minutes of the show? Who spit in her Cheerios?

DO YOU THINK IT WAS CARSON’S TIME TO GO? WHO DO YOU PREDICT WILL BE VOTED OFF NEXT WEEK?

Movie score night proved to be an exciting evening for Dancing With the Stars, with Cher in the audience supporting Chaz Bono and Ricki Lake and Derek Hough scoring the highest score of the season thus far (with two 10s!).

However, last night’s elimination was just as exciting for me. Why? First of all, the “celebrities” watching in the ballroom got to put in their two cents on the performances. Hello Pee-Wee Herman! Greetings Donny Osmond! Great to see you Steve Sanders Ian Ziering! And of course Courteney Cox Arquette and Kris and Bruce Jenner Kardashian have their say. It’s like the who’s who of has-beens (not you, Courteney…I hope).

Susan Boyle performed Unchained Melody “the song from Ghost” according to Brooke Burke Charvet, but I think the Everly Brothers claimed it first. Ricki Lake is the first celebrity deemed safe, followed by my man J.R. Martinez. Rob Kardashian isn’t so lucky…he’s potentially on the chopping block.

Julianne Hough also returned “home” to the DWTS stage where she got her start to perform a routine with her co-star from the movie Footloose. They are accompanied by the musical stylings of Blake Shelton singing the iconic Kenny Loggins’ song. Girlfriend is a talented dancer…let’s hope she’s half as good an actress because this DWTS is just one long advertisement for her remake.

The next three pairs are showcased. Viewers relive Chynna Phillips‘ choreography black-out, Carson Kressley’s pirate booty dance, and the routine that the judges called Chaz Bono’s best to date. Chaz and last night’s lowest scoring Carson are safe, with Chynna joining Rob in the bottom three.

The siblings Hough perform the twist together before the fate of the remaining three couples is revealed. Hope Solo and David Arquette are safe, but Nancy Grace must boogie her way to the to the bottom. The bottom three are solidified with Rob owning three more points than Chynna or Nancy.

Nancy Grace is the first saved of the the three, and Chynna Phillips, the front runner at the season’s opener, is eliminated. Rob Kardashian can breath another sigh of relief…he’ll be around for next week’s 80′s themed dancing.

DO YOU THINK CHYNNA SHOULD HAVE BEEN VOTED OFF THE SHOW? WHAT DID YOU THINK OF JULIANNE’S RETURN? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE THE NEXT TO GO?

So, it looks like Dancing with the Stars is trying to incorporate actual stars this go-round, after multiple seasons of over-exposed reality show personalities and Bachelor/Bachelorette cast-offs.

Although the producers have to use a few reality fillers, like Kim K’s younger brother Rob Kardashian, TMZ is reporting that some actual celebrities will be competing in the upcoming season. Rapper, actress, and make-up spokesmodel Queen Latifah will be joining the growing cast, as well as Blue Collar’s Kelly Kapowski Tiffani Thiessen. Thiessen’s rep is, of course, denying this rumor…but isn’t that what they all do?

Also confirmed for the new season and a chance at the disco ball trophy is everyone’s favorite Oompa loompa, Snooki from Jersey Shore. Her rep as well had previously said the pickle lover would be a no-go. No word yet on whether she’ll be dancing in her furry Chewbacca boots or beaten up bunny slippers.

THOUGHTS ON THE CAST SO FAR? WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON NEXT SEASON’S DWTS?

UPDATE - According to a new report by UsWeekly, Queen Latifah is NOT signed on to do the show. A rep for the actress states she is not doing the show while an insider adds that “there were never any talks” between the network and Queen Latifah. Yikes. Did TMZ get it wrong? Only time will tell.

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo recently gave an interview to AOL where Melissa expressed her hope of a better family relationship, and Caroline did was she loves to do: give family advice.

Melissa admits, “There is a huge desire on my part to make amends. I want nothing more than my husband to be with his family.” She says she doesn’t want to be the one who appears to stand between her husband and her husband’s sister Teresa. Melissa believes that she hasn’t had the opportunity to prove herself like the ladies who have been on since the show’s beginning. She says, “It’s hard especially for me being the new girl trying to come in and give my side of the story when you have other women who have been on for two seasons, that you know, people have learned to love and people have learned to get to know.”

Caroline thinks it’s “wonderful” that the women share their lives with millions of viewers. She says, “I think it’s a learning experience to teach everyone that they’re not alone in what they are going through.” She elaborates that “in struggles with families and relationships” the most important thing to do is maintain “an open line of communication.” Caroline continues, “Look within yourself to find out what you did wrong.” She’s a regular Dr. Drew!

Melissa concludes with some things we viewers can expect to see as the season continues. She reveals, “On a lot of the upcoming episodes you’re going to see a lot of good times and house husbands. You are going to see us kind of go full circle and makes amends, and I think that is what America is looking for.” My bad, I thought America was looking for drama.

Not to be overshadowed by her sister-in-law’s exposure, Teresa Guidice was featured in US Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” and I must say I learned a lot about dear ol’ Teresa. She was once a buyer for Macy’s, although I doubt that is something Macy’s likes to advertise. She had a crush on Jean-Claude Van Damme (remembering that picture of Juicy Joe doing the splits, there is no surprise about this one), and she had a curfew until she married Joe at age 27. Teresa wears high heels everywhere she goes, even if it’s too the beach (I think we’ll get to see this later in the season), and she lurves some club music. Again, not especially shocking. Teresa still has her Catholic school uniform that she models weekly for Joe, and she can play the saxophone. My personal favorite? Teresa’s favorite television show is “Dancing with the Stars.” Are you listening, ABC?

On tonight’s episode, “Holidazed and Confused”, Jacqueline hosts a Christmas party, although there isn’t much cheer at the Manzo residence. Lauren is feeling a little bit of separation anxiety with her brothers’ departure from the family home. Joe builds his wife a recording studio…the gift that keeps on giving. Despite their money woes, Juicy and Teresa make plans to spice up their love life…I’m guessing it will be more than just standing under some mistletoe. {shudder} A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens LiveAndy Cohen will not be hosting tonight. Taking his place will be guest host Jay Mohr. The guests are Kathy and Rich Wakile.

DO YOU BELIEVE MELISSA AND TERESA WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE AMENDS? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Susan, who previously appeared on America’s Got Talent last September will perform “I Dreamed a Dream” from her upcoming CD due out Nov. 24. While Susan is singing, Pro dancers Tony Dovolani and Chelsie Hightower will perform on the ballroom dance floor.
