TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF DWTS?
The fourth week of Dancing With The Stars aired last night and the good news for Kate Gosselin was that she actually gave a good performance. The bad news? Even when she’s good, she’s bad. The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom still managed to come in last place despite getting good reviews from the judges.
Kate appeared on the Today Show this morning and spoke out on Jon Gosselin’sattempt to get custody of their eight children. “I’ve got to work harder now than ever because I am a single mom,” said Kate, 35, in response to being called an absentee mom by Jon. “In my heart I’m always in my kitchen, baking and cooking for my kids, and I’ll always be there. It’s a struggle to be here [in New York], to be anywhere. The emotion that you see is because I would rather be at home with them.”
However that is not always possible according to Kate, “I have to work. I have to provide for them. And it’s a struggle that every working mom, especially single moms, go through, and I’m really feeling it now, and it’s really hard.”
Now back to DWTS, Olympic skater Evan Lysacek took the lead once again by earning a high score of 52 points for his hot tango with partner Anna. Coming in second this week for the 2nd week in a row was Pussycat doll Nicole Scherzingerwho did a sensual rumba with Derek, earning 50 points.
Moving into third place this week was Pamela Anderson, earning a good 47 points for her steamy rumba with partner Damian. Sliding down to fifth place this week was surprisingly Erin Andrewsand partner Maksim. The duo received a score of 39 for their tango with the judges feeling that Erin was payed too much attention to her technique, and not enough to the performance.
At the bottom two this week were Aiden Turnerand Kate Gosselin. Soap star Aiden earned 33 points for what the judges called a stiff rumba, while Kate, despite getting praises from the judges for her best dance this season, earned 32 points out of 60. Bruno called her dance a “mini breakthrough” and “a step in the right direction.”
So who will be going home tonight? Well according to our poll from yesterday, The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka and Aiden Turner are in danger, as they both received the least number of votes. Nicole Scherzinger and Erin Andrews should be safe tonight as they received the most votes. You can view the poll here.
It is week 4 of Dancing With The Stars, and the competition continues to get steep, as tonight will bring a different scoring format. Each of the dancing couples will receive two scores, one for their performance, and the other for technique.
Kate Gosselin’s Tough Week – As if getting low scores wasn’t bad enough, the mom of eight has also had to endure another tough week in the press. First came news that ex-husband Jon Gosselin was taking her back to court in an attempt to get custody of their eight children, and then came the UsWeekly cover accusing her of acting like a major celebrity and basically being a ‘super bitch from hell.’ Professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy made a good point in his blog this week, saying: “I’ve spoken to Kate, and I don’t think she gets the point of this thing yet. The pain on her face says it all, which is unfortunate. The show is about finding a way to come out, enjoy yourself and have fun.” It will be interesting to see how Kate performs tonight.
Erin Andrews Denies Romance – Despite their PEOPLE magazine cover story proclaiming Erin and partner Maksim in a “hot romance.” The ESPN reporter slammed the story, saying any romance report is news to her and Maks. “According to People, our “romance” is official, but People must know people because we don’t know the people that they know. The thing is, what Maks and I do joking around gets taken seriously. After looking at the article, Maks said to me, “You would’ve thought we were on some beach riding a horse. It was like a romance novel.” Allrighty then, romance or not, those two seem to have some great chemistry between them.
Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Romance? – Romance rumors also continue to heat up for dancing duo, Chad and partner Cheryl Burke. And it didn’t help that Chad gave Cheryl a $10,000 ring last week, but according to Chad the ring was just a thank you gift to Cheryl for putting up with him. More than likely it’s just flirting between the two, and why you might ask? Well for one, Chad has signed a deal with VH1 to stare in his own dating reality show, titled The Tournament, set to air later this year.
The couples will be dancing the rumba or tango dance tonight. Nine couples remain, and one couple will face elimination tomorrow night.
TELL US: WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO WIN THIS SEASON?
Taking the lead this week for the first time this season is Olympic Ice Skater Evan Lysacek, who earned a score of 25 for his high energy quick step dance. Evan’s high score was all the more impressive considering he was dancing on two broken toes. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba called his dance “twinkling, athletic and energetic.”
Tying for second place were ESPN reporter Erin Andrewsand PussyCat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Both ladies received a 23 score for their dances. Erin vowed not to let the death threats get in the way of her dancing, and she had one of the most entertaining performances of the night when she did the waltz while blindfolded with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Carrie Ann called the dance “Breathtakingly artistic.” Nicole also had a solid dance with partner Derek Hough, but the judges deducted points citing they broke two rules of the quick step.
The lowest score of the night once again went to 80 year old Buzz Aldrin, who was accused of just sort of walking through his dance. For the third week in a row, the second lowest score of the night went to Kate Gosselin, though her partner Tony Dovolani had predicted the “Paso Doble is going to be Kate’s best dance.” Kate received a poor 15 points for what Carrie Ann called an “odd” dance. It will be interesting to see if Kate will be saved once again when the results show airs tonight as 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
Kate was also shown having a small meltdown during one of her dance practices. The mom of eight just was shown crying for no reason in particular. However in a new interview with ABC, Kate reveals her reason for tearing up. “I had a little meltdown,” she said. “And I heard [my kids] upstairs. And I just started crying. And I was like, ‘I just miss my kids.'” Allrighty Kate.
Tonight marks the 3rd week of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. In what is being called the best season yet, the stars will not only have to dance tonight, but their dance will also have to tell a story.

The emails which started late last year, were being sent to the Dan Patrick Show. Erin and her lawyer were however just notified last week. The good news is that the FBI knows the identity of the man, and security has been provided for Erin and her family. Erin has vowed to keep on dancing, telling PEOPLE, “I’m glad I’m here. I have a dance on Monday and I don’t want to let Maks down, I don’t want to let my family down, and I don’t want to let myself down,” she says. “I’m not going to stop living my life.”
Evan Lysacek Injury – It also came out this week that Olympic Ice Skater Evan Lysacek is injured with two broken toes. Evan however vows to not let the injury get in the way of his quickstep dance tonight. “As for my toes, I’m not worried. I will tape them up and hit the floor with the same 100 percent effort I give in training. I will not let them steal my thunder! A little pain won’t keep me off the ice, nor will it keep me off the dance floor,” said Evan.
Kate Gosselin’s Best Dance? – Kate Gosselin’s partner Tony Dovolaniis making a big prediction for tonight. The professional dancer is predicting tonight will be Kate’s best ever. “Paso Doble is going to be Kate’s best dance :)” Tony, 37, tweeted on Saturday.

The most intense fight came from Kate Gosselin and her partner Tony Dovolani, who even threatened to quit during one of their rehearsals. It all started when Kate complained that she was “stressed,” Tony then said, “Nothing in dancing is natural to Kate.”
“He feels like I undermine him as a teacher,” Kate, 34, snapped to the camera before telling Jon Tony, “You’re not taking into consideration how I learn!” Kate walked away saying, “I’m done, I’m done today.” Tony then removed his mic pack and said, “I quit!” causing Kate to break down saying, “I don’t get it!”
Shortly after, Tony came back saying he overreacted, and the two made up. Kate then said, “A lot of people quit on me in my life.” Tony has also said he regrets telling Kate he quit.
