DWTS contestant, Melissa Rycroft admits to UsMagazine that she really wanted to win after Shawn Johnson was named season eight winner of Dancing with the Stars at the finale. “I wanted that mirror ball trophy, I really did,” she tells Usmagazine. “But I don’t need it because I know I’ve accomplished more than I ever thought I could.

Rycroft who rose to fame after being dumped on national TV by Jason Mesnick on The Bachelor is thankful to have been one of the final three competitors, along with Johnson and Sex in the city star Gilles Marini.

According to Rycroft, her life has changed over the last several months and she is grateful for the opportunities she has been given. “Never in a million years did I imagine I’d be dancing with an Olympian and someone who was in a blockbuster movie,” Rycroft said after she and partner Tony Dovolani were eliminated Tuesday.

Rycroft feels like they all won because they all worked hard. “Backstage, we were all really happy for each other. We started reminiscing about our journeys and how far each of us has come and the last time we were all out here, we all got perfect scores”, Rycroft continues.

So what’s next for Rycroft? Now that she’s in the reality show spotlight, will she try to stay there? “I really don’t know,” she tells Us. “I’m not going to pursue anything right now, but if things come my way I will look into them.” Melissa is open to any opportunities that may come her way and she seems to have a bright future ahead of her.

Most people thought Marini will win the trophy but even though he took Second-place he is “thrilled” for Johnson but disappointed he let his son down. Marini lost by less than one percent. “I told my son I was sorry because he only understands one thing and that is, “Daddy lost,” so it is difficult for him to understand,” Marini tells Us. Not to worry, he plans on getting his son lots of gift to make up for the loss.

Marini hopes to be involved in several meaningful projects in the future. Something tells me we haven’t seen the last of either Marini or Rycroft.

The finale of Dancing With The Stars aired last night with all 3 of the finalists bringing the heat! Melissa Rycroft talked to Us Magazine after Monday night’s final competition show. The former Bachelor star said, “Not confident, just happy. We wanted to get out there and have fun, and backstage we were just relaxed and having fun.

“This was kind of our last performance, and I felt like there was nothing to lose!” adds Melissa, who came in third place behind Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini, who tied for first.

While Melissa claims to not be a competitive person, she however makes it clear she still wants to win – “It took me awhile to [admit] because I’m not competitive,” says Melissa. “And I thought about it and who’s left, and then I thought, Shawn went to the Olympics because she wanted to win, Gilles goes into an audition wanting the role. So, I decided to think, ‘I wanted to win this!’”

So what are Melissa’s plans once this is over? “I’m going home to Texas, and I’m going to get a puppy!” she says. “Tye said he’d get me a dog if I made it to the finals, and now I’ve been telling everyone so he has to!” Tye is Melissa’s very cute boyfriend for those not aware.

I’m rooting for Melissa or Gilles. Who are you rooting for tonight?

Cowboy Ty Murray is the latest star to get the boot from Dancing With The Stars the week before the finale. Ty is however happy to have simply made it this far, saying, “I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Murray said laughing after the show. “I don’t have to learn any more dances.”

Ty goes on to make it clear that he has no regrets in having done the show, “The whole reason I did this show is because it was nice for cowboys to be represented in something so pop culture, and this show did in spades,” Murray said. “For me to be able to do this is a fantastic opportunity. You don’t realize how big something like this is until you’re on a show that 25 million people watch.”

And how does Ty’s rookie dancing partner, Chelsie Hightower, 19 feel about all of this? “I don’t know that I expected us to do this well and I couldn’t be happier,” Hightower added. “I feel great about the run we had and I feel great about leaving right now. It was a great season.”

The three remaining stars including  — actor Gilles Marini, Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft and Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson — will compete for the season eight mirror-ball trophy next week!

Dancing With The Stars favorite to win it all Gilles Marini speaks out about getting the first perfect score this season!

You did amazing last night. You got three 10s!
We try our best. I was very insecure last night before we start dancing because I saw the dress rehearsals. Everyone was brilliant and I was like, “I’m done today.”

How does it feel to hear Carrie Anne Inaba say she couldn’t tell who was the celebrity and who was the professional dancer during your Argentine tango?
You know, it doesn’t make me do anything. When she says that it means Cheryl is an accomplished teacher. Every week I’m starting from zero. We have the paso doble next, and I don’t know what a paso doble is yet. I never seen a paso doble my entire life. I didn’t even know how to spell it.

I’m sure you’ve been getting a lot more fan mail and attention.
We have much more people contacting us and saying they are really having a fun time. This morning, I was on a radio show and a listener called in saying, “My wife was really horny last night, so thank you!” I thought it was hilarious and a compliment. I’m helping make babies. That’s the nicest thing I’ve heard this morning.

This week’s dancing with the stars was a week of good dances and high scores! A lot of the stars continued to show improvement. Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini had a triple tie for the top score with each receiving a 27. Not sure if that had ever happened in the dancing history of DWTS.

Eliminations were last night and Denise Richards found herself in the bottom two along with Holly Madison. Yes we’re also wondering how Steve Wozniak escaped the bottom two, perhaps votewoz.com might explain it.

Denise found herself getting the axe, we take it the fans have yet to get over that whole sleeping with your bestfriend’s husband fiasco that occured a while back with Heather Locklear & Richie Sambora. Better luck next time Denise!

Best Dance of the week – Gilles and Cheryl

Most improved this week – David and Kym

Melissa and Gilles continue to be the two favorites to win the season.

The 2 lowest scores of the night once again went to Steve-O and Steve Wozniak.

Here are the scores for this week –

Gilles and Cheryl: 27
Melissa and Tony: 27
Shawn and Mark: 27
Lil’ Kim and Derek: 25
David and Kym: 24
Chuck and Julianne: 23
Ty and Chelsie: 23
Lawrence and Edyta: 20
Holly and Dmitry: 17
Denise and Maksim: 16
Steve-O and Lacey: 15


Steve and Karina: 10

Ever wondered how much the Celebs get paid to be on Dancing With The Stars? Well we now have that answer! All the stars get paid the amount of $200,000 for the season. The $200,000 is paid whether or not the stars get voted off. So Belinda Carlisle , the first star voted off this season would still get that amount.

The winner then receives a $100,000 bonus with the 2nd and 3rd runner ups receiving smaller bonuses as well.

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke

Things are about to heat up on Dancing With The Stars as Cheryl Burke offers fans an incentive to vote for her and her partner Marini.

“Every week we advance, he will lose one piece of clothing,” Burke says, giggling. “He’s the naked guy from the Sex and the City movie, and people know he has a great body. So he can pull it off.”

The Sex and The City movie hunk doesn’t seem to have a problem with this as he states, “I will do whatever it takes,” he says. “Cheryl is the boss.”  He has our vote!
