Another rumored couple Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke will perform a Quickstep to “The Bare Necessities” from The Jungle Book.
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.
Last night’s Dancing With The Stars elimination was less about who went home, and more about who didn’t go home.
80 year-old Buzz Aldrin’s elimination didn’t exactly come as a big surprise, as he had the lowest scores this season. What was surprising was that for the second week in a row, Kate Gosselin avoided elimination. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom wasn’t even in the bottom two.
“I did this show for the fighter pilots, the military, the older geezers like me,” said Buzz, who received a standing ovation from the audience. “I thank everyone who voted for me.”
Rounding up the bottom two with Buzz was surprisingly Jake Pavelka, former star of The Bachelor. A lot of people are questioning why people continue to vote for Kate? Well some reports believe people are voting for her because they feel sorry for her, or because they find her somewhat relatable.
Kate however continues to take a beating in the press. We reported yesterday that her ex-husband,Jon Gosselin, plans on taking her to court in an attempt to get custody of their eight children and stop paying her $22,000 a month in child support. And now the latest today is Kate gracing the cover of UsWeekly magazine under the headline – “Inside Kate’s Train Wreck.“ The magazine cover accuses her of torturing her partner Tony, and blowing off practice to shop.
In other DWTS news, the show is having it’s best season ever, as the ratings continue to soar. For the first time ever, an episode of DWTS beat American Idol in the ratings. Last week’s episode of DWTS averaged 23 million viewers compared to the 21.9 million viewers Idol received. Some are calling it the Kate Gosselin effect, it seems those who love her, or simply love to hate her, are tuning in to watch her.
TELL US – DID THE VIEWERS GET IT RIGHT BY ELIMINATING BUZZ?
The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka cheating scandal refuses to go away, as his ex-girlfriend Tanya Douglas has now given an exclusive paid interview to Life&Style magazine.
In the latest issue of Life&Style, Tanya reveals that Jake only did the Bachelor for money and that he professed his love to her after proposing to Vienna Girardion the show.
Tanya tells Life & Style that Jake only did the show for the money, saying he’s obsessed with being on TV. Tanya also claims Jake was still in love with her when he went on the show and even wanted her to be a contestant! “I don’t think he has any idea what he wants except to be on TV,” says Tanya.
Tanya,25, says she first met Jake in July 2008 and the two quickly became friends. They became romantically involved once Jake left The Bachelorette, and their romance was still going strong when Jake got a call to appear on The Bachelor. At first, Tanya claims Jake didn’t want to be on the show. “He said, ‘Everything I was looking for I’ve found in you,’” she says. However he eventually decided to do it due to financial problems he was experiencing. Jake told Tanya he would receive $500,000 to do the show.
“Maybe I can persuade the producers to let you be on the show and be one of the 25 contestants, and then it’s rigged for me the whole time, and in the end we can still be together and have the money,” is what Tanya claims Jake told her.
The cheating accusation comes to play when Jake began contacting Tanya just days after he proposed to Vienna back in November. And then in December, Jake told Tanya he was still in love with her despite having a fiance. “He said over the phone, ‘Ever since that day I saw you get on that plane in Asheville, I’ve never loved anyone more.’”
“Vienna is being lied to,” Tanya states. “The person Jake is on TV is a different person than when he was with me.”

Good news for ABC! Their decision to thrown in one or two random controversial reality stars in the mix of their new season of Dancing With The Stars is drastically paying off.
Monday night’s premiere episode was the highest rated episode ever for the DWTS series. The two hour debut averaged over 23.9 million total viewers. This is a drastic increase compared to the 17.5 million viewers that watched last season’s debut.
And for those who missed the premiere episode, ABC has decided to rebroadcast it this Saturday at 8:00/7:00c.
In other DWTS news, Kate Gosselin continues to be the center of negative media attention. First, UsWeekly posted a story stating that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom was a total nervous wreck backstage. Kate, who scored the night’s third lowest score looked “so nervous the entire time,” reveals an onlooker.
A dancing expert also reveals to UsWeekly that Kate will likely be the first one voted off. The NYPost is also reporting that Kate continues to be a diva on the set of the show, and that she is always late for hair and makeup.
“The staff has warned her and lectured her about being late, but Kate just gets angry and blows them off,” says the source. “No one wants to deal with her.”
UsWeekly also reports that though The Bachelor’s Vienna Girardi sat in the audience with fiance Jake Pavelka‘s parents, she paid zero attention to them. “They did not speak at all or interact — it was very noticeable to me,” says a witness.
Also sitting with Vienna was former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, whom Vienna chatted with all night.
Dancing With The Stars premiered last night on ABC, and while some stars sizzled, others were rather average, or downright bad.
The top score of the night went to Pop star Nicole Scherzinger and her partner Derek Hough , as the duo earned 25 points out of 30 from the judges by doing the waltz. Olympic champion figure skater Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya came in second with 23 points by also doing the waltz.
Nicole and Evan lived up to all expectations as the two were the early favorites going in. Now onto the bad, as reality star Kate Gosselin didn’t do so well. The mom of eight earned a poor 16 points for her waltz with partner Tony Dovolani, giving her one of the lowest scores of the night. “It looked like Tony was pushing a shopping cart across the floor. You have to exude something!” exclaimed judge Bruno Tonioli (ouch!).
Other reality star Jake Pavelka surprised judges with his Viennese waltz, earning an okay score of 20. The lowest score of the night went to 80 year old Buzz Aldrin, who received a 14 for his cha-cha. Buzz is the oldest contestant in the history of DWTS.
All of the stars will return next week for another performance. The first elimination will take place next Tuesday.
It’s that time of the year again! The tenth season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars is set to have its 2 hour premiere tonight at 8:00 pm eastern.
The year should bring in high ratings for the ABC network as they made certain to include celebs from every realm possible, including the controversial reality stars, Kate Gosselin and The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka.
The favorites to win so far seems to be Nicole Scherzinger andEvan Lysacek. Nicole is the former lead singer of the pop group – The Pussycat Dolls, and Evan recently won an Olympic gold medal for figure skating.
