Our favorite reality stars were on the prowl this week.
Ramona Singer let loose on the red carpet at the opening night after party for the musical ‘Bullets Over Broadway’. Snooki &Jwoww attended the MTV Movie Awards. Kendall and Kylie Jenner hit up a music festival while sister Kourtney Kardashian made an appearance in Las Vegas (looking like she’s attempting to hide a baby bump..). Lauren Manzo celebrated her birthday. Yolanda Foster stepped out with husband David – looking better than ever! Andy Cohen attended an ASPCA event with his dog while Carole Radizwill and LuAnn de Lesseps hung out at a cocktail party.
I will admit that I voted forNeNe and Derekfor the switch up. I wanted to see a traditional "two-hand hold" ballroom dance between the two; alas, that is not what happened. The picture above – SMH – is what happened. NeNe took to her DWTS blog to tell us what she really thought about Derek, the dance, and her horrid costume.
First, NeNe gushed (and gushed some more) about Derek. "Oooh, hunni I had so much fun in last week's Switch Up! Derek is awesome, he's young, he's creative, he's an amazing choreographer. It was just fun to switch it up and see what another dancer could do and what their creativity was like."
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
See what Gretchen Rossi, Kim Kardashian, Joanna Krupa and other reality stars are to this week in our photo gallery.
The photo above (and one in the gallery) of Kim Zolciak is from February, but we stumbled on it this week and they were too fun not to share. All that's missing is a lit ciggy hanging from her mouth and this photo would be Peg Bundy perfection.
Also spotted: Kim Kardashian attended a political event with sister Kourtney. Kendra spent some time with her family (on the red carpet) and Juan Pablo Galavis enjoyed some time with Nikki Ferrell. And Bethenny Frankel ran errands in NYC.
"Derek is great," shares NeNe. "He's a great choreographer. I've watched him dance over the seasons and I know how dope he is. What I like is that Derek knows that I am known for being fabulous – not that Tony didn't know that – but maybe he didn't know how to bring that out."
I cannot explain the feather sticking out of Derek's crotch in the above picture. I also have no words for Derek and NeNe's tribal-inspired jazz number. Derek looks like a flying monkey from the Wizard of Oz flapping his arms around next to giant NeNe. I can't – watch the video below.
No elimination tonight – last week's and this week's scores and viewer votes will be combined to determine who goes home next week. Will NeNe survive?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above: Gretchen Rossi shared, "Yep, that is Slade Smiley in my tight pink Lycra one piece outfit… We went to Lydia McLaughlin's tight & bright themed birthday party and Slade & I were in it to win it! We wanted to win the costume contest!"
Below are photos of the remaining season 18 stars – Amy Purdy, Billy Dee Williams, Candace Cameron Bure, Charlie White, Cody Simpson, Danica McKellar, Diana Nyad, Drew Carey, James Maslow, Meryl Davis, & Sean Avery – with their pro partners.
ABC revealed the season 18 cast of Dancing with the Stars yesterday. The cast consists mostly of athletes, pop stars, and uber popular 90s sitcom stars. Then there's NeNe Leakes. Then there's a real [movie] star. Bloop.
New this season are Erin Andrews, who has replacedBrook Burke as Tom Bergeron's co-host, and the Switch Up twist. For the first time ever, the stars will dance with new pro partners – chosen by America's votes – at some point in the season.
Personally, I'm not excited about either addition, Erin or the twist that reeks of desperation, but oh well. Also – noTristan MacManus. 🙁 Someone at ABC hates me. Anyway, check out the cast photos and bios below, as well as a few candid shots of NeNe and Tony.
