Kym Johnson’s chemistry with Dancing With the Stars partner, Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec, can’t be denied – especially after that (spontaneous?) smooch on this week’s show! For now, though, Kym is avoiding that topic, instead focusing on her recent stint (with Carson Kressley, also a DWTS alumn) on RuPaul’s Drag Race as a dance coach. “It was definitely not your typical dance, it’s sort of a twist on your normal partner dance,” Johnson tells PEOPLE about the routines she helped customize for an unusual dance competition among the “half-man/half-woman” costumed queens.
Admitting to the newness (and awkwardness!) of the situation, Kym says, “I’m usually teaching a celebrity, and I’m the pro, so that, when you’re out on the dance floor, you know that at least one member of the partnership can sort of pull the other one through if they get lost,” adding, “but when you have two people in the same situation, that makes it really nerve-racking because either one of them could mess up, and it’s hard to get it back.” Kym admits she was nervous for the drag queens to pull off their final performance: “I was watching, holding my breath, thinking, ‘Please, keep it together!’ But the ones that struggled a little bit more in rehearsals ended up, I think, pulling it off the best in the actual performance,” she says.
While some reality TV stars make a huge production out of going to church on Easter <cough-Kris-cough-Kardashian-cough> for the paparazzi, others enjoy quiet, quality time with family. Of course, they ARE still reality stars, so they post pictures. Here is a roundup of our favorite pictures from the holiday weekend.
Love among the disco lights! It seems the sparkles bid them together because Robert Herjavec is reportedly dating Kym Johnson!
The Shark Tank star was spotted at a party in the Hollywood Hills with his Dancing With The Stars partner on Saturday night, which started speculation that they’re doing more than tangoing on the dance floor! On Monday night, the newly minted happy couple snuggled up at Hyde lounge alongside other DWTS cast members for an afterparty.
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 lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.

Thank you to @dressyourface for my amaze makeup and @henryzador for my fabulous hair last night! #Couture #Fashion #OverTheTopGlam #Bling #BigHair #GetGlamwithGretchen”
To be completely honest, I was underwhelmed and disappointed by this cast reveal. Considering it’s the 20th season and the 10th anniversary for Dancing with the Stars, I expected a more exciting cast. Oh well. So, once again, I will tune in to root for my favorite pro dancers (what’s left of them) and hope to fall in love with one of the contestants along the way.
Below are photos of this season’s stars – Noah Galloway, Robert Herjavec, Patti LaBelle, Nastia Liukin, Riker Lynch, Charlotte Mckinney, RedFoo, Michael Sam, Willow Shields, Suzanne Somers, and Rumer Willis – with their pro partners. This coming Monday brings us The Bachelor season finale, then the new season of Dancing with the Stars kicks off Monday, March 16.
ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 20 stars this morning on Good Morning America. I watched. I took notes. I’m still waiting for the stars to be announced. I kid, but seriously, this is the least exciting cast in several seasons. However, as a huge fan of Shark Tank, I was pleasantly surprised to learn one of the “sharks” will dance.
ABC also revealed that Derek Hough will compete despite his promise to stay away, err, despite his role in New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. He and his star will split their time between L.A. and NYC. Cheryl Burke and Karina Smirnoff will not dance this season. Check out the cast list below and let us know if you plan to watch.
It’s Oscar mania everywhere as we lead up to Sunday night’s awards ceremony. And while our favorite reality stars will most likely NEVER attend the Oscars, much less WIN one, they still love to party and celebrate anyway!
Some seasons, like this one, the only reason I turn on the premiere is to see my favorite pros dance. Luckily I always find a star or two to root for along the way. But my interest fades a little bit each time one of the pros I like to watch – Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus, Chelsie Hightower, Kym Johnson, and Maks come to mind – leaves the show.
