It's that time again – you know what time! Time for the official Dancing With The Stars cast photos. This one is especially exciting as it features my lady loveLisa Vanderpump looking sassy and sumptuous.
Below are the official Cast & Partner Photos. Be warned, sexiness galore. Ok, well maybe…
Derek Hough, Shawn Johnson, Kym Johnson, Joey Fatone, Helio Castroneves, Sabrina Bryan and the others (including Derek's mom and grandma!) have been spotted out and about this week – heading to practice, stopping by The Grove to chat about the upcoming season and more.

I have to admit I love Dancing With The Stars partner photos. Oh, lord the cheese! It’s better than funnel cake at the county fair (oh which I am desperately craving right. now). And what’s better than regular DWTS photos? ALL STAR VERSIONS!
ABC just released the first batch of our favorite cheese ball professional dancers and our favorite desperately seeking a return to relevance ‘celebrities’!
Curiously, Maksim Chmerkovskiy (currently under fire for allegedly slapping former partner Hope Solo during last season’s rehearsals) and Kirstie Alley‘s photo is missing for the bunch! Kiristie tweeted: “We haven’t shot ours yet..We shoot next week..:) been gone”
Also, ABC is still stringing us along for who will be the lucky 13th dancer. I just heard a rumor that Kate Gosselin was added to the mix! Just kidding… but who doesn’t crave another dose of her insane bitchiness and the gossip that surrounds it?
Behold the glamour below! Let’s get judgey, shall we.
A few of the hour’s highlights: after receiving a perfect score of 30, Derek Hough and Maria Menounos were asked to give an encore performance, eliminated contestant Gavin DeGraw sang one of his new songs, and a dance troupe gave an energetic and inspiring performance.
It was Classical Night on this week’s Dancing with the Stars and it brought with it a strange mix of performances.
Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas chose the rumba. I think Mark doing the dance shirtless just felt a little tacky. It didn’t fit with the theme of the night, nor their music piece. Bruno’s goes a little over-the-top with his innuendos, as always. Carrie Ann Inaba says Katherine’s dance had beautiful lines but not enough chemistry and heat.
Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the Argentine tango. Maks is powering through with a foot issue, while his brother Val is on standby just in case he can’t make it. Maks does make it to performance night, but the judges aren’t very impressed with this week’s attempt. Bruno said they looked like they were riding the Cyclone at Coney Island. Carrie Ann says it was like Cirque du Soleil went horribly wrong. They wind up with the lowest score of the night – 21.
After performances by Natasha Bedingfield and the Macy’s Stars of Dance, we have Boys II Men on the stage. Sometimes I’m a little confused about the purpose of these results shows. They just don’t have much to do with the DWTS, in my humble opinion. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the extra dances and musical guests, maybe I just don’t have the patience for it when I’m waiting for them to get on with the eliminations?
The “Bottom Two” couples become Gladys and Tristan vs. Roshon and Chelsie, who must dance in front of the judges in a dance duel. The couples dance the jive for this one and they both did a great job, but the judges have to pick only one. Carrie Ann and Len praised them both for their efforts. Len tells Gladys again that she dances with her heart, just like she sings. Bruno tells her it’s been an honor to have her on the show.
When it’s all over, Bruno and Len choose to save Roshon and Chelsie, which means Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus are eliminated. Gladys has had low numbers all along, but I was secretly hoping she’d turn it around and stay longer.
