Hope Solo

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?

Bringing you a new photo post this week!

Above is a photo of fired Real Housewives of New York City BFFs Kelly Kra-kra Bensimon and Jill Zarin as the two met up today ( October 5, 2011) for the first time since their firing from RHONY a few weeks ago. The ladies, who surely didn’t invite the paparazzi for this private moment, gave each other a big hug and kiss before doing lunch in NYC.

Three weeks into Dancing With The Stars, the audience finally got a taste of the season’s first shocking elimination!

Despite giving a strong performance on Monday night and earning 24 points, The Hills alum Kristin Cavallari found herself in the bottom three alongside other good performers such as Hope Solo and Carson Kressley.

Safe were the lowest two scorers — Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace. Unfortunately for Kristin, 24, she was sent packing though she and partner Mark Ballas earned their highest scores of the season on Monday.

“I’m a little surprised, to be honest,” said Kristin after learning her fate. “But I’ve had such a great time and it’s been an awesome experience, so it is what it is.”

“I was really proud of Kristin,” said Mark, 25. “She had great potential and she killed it last night. I’m honored to be her partner.”

As for Chaz, he counted his lucky stars following Kristin’s elimination as he posted the following on his twitter page: “I wish I could thank each & every one of you personally for your votes. You are the reason Lacey Schwimmer and I ARE DANCING AGAIN next week!!”

Ready or not, an all new season of Dancing With The Stars premieres tonight on ABC!

Season 13 of the hit show will feature 12 “celebrities” including Rob Kardashian, Ricki Lake, David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Carson Kressley and many others!

The new season has however not been without controversy as immediately following ABC’s reveal of the cast back in August, some fans of the show were outraged over the casting of Chaz Bono aka the first transgendered contestant in the show’s history. In fact Chaz’s uber famous mother Cher had to publicly defend him.

Chaz, 42, is now speaking out today on the backlash he received from some. “I feel like if people who are on the fence just watch the show, I think they’re going to feel comfortable with me pretty soon,” said Chaz to the AP. “I’m a really kind of regular guy. I think I’m a pretty nice guy. My heart is in the right place and I think if people just watch, they’ll see that.”

Chaz goes on to add that he’s more worried about his dancing skills today than any backlash. “It’s completely different because I’ve never done this before,” he said. “I can sit down and talk to Oprah about myself or subjects that I’m really comfortable with and that I really know and have information to put across, but I’m not a dancer. All I know about dancing is what I’ve learned in less than (three) weeks!”

And while we won’t know for certain the dancing capabilities of this new group of contestants until tonight, odd makers have already started making bets as to who will win the mirror ball trophy this season.

The favorite to win it all? None other than US soccer player Hope Solo, who is partnered with hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Other contestants expected to fare well this season include Elisabetta Canalis, Kristin Cavallari, and Carson Kressley.

Dancing With The Stars season 13 debuts tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

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.

DWTS 13 Cast

ABC has officially revealed the Dancing With The Stars season 13 pairings!

The revelation was made this morning on Good Morning America. One of the biggest surprises is the addition of Val Chmerkovskiy to the cast! 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 -

  • Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus
  • Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • David Arquette and Kym Johnson
  • Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas
  • Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke
  • Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy
  • Ron Artest and Peta Murgatroyd
  • RJ Martinez and Karina Smirnoff
  • Ricki Lake and Derek Hough
  • Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer
  • Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya
  • Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani

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
Hope Solo, soccer player

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