Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Yes, Tuesday night was elimination night on Dancing With The Stars, but the #1 question on the minds of most was how was dancing hottie Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s thigh holding up?

The good news is that all is “fine” with Maksim’s thigh as he thanked the fans for their “overwhelming” support. He added, “You’re going to need a stretcher to get me out of here.” As for Maksim’s partner Kirstie Alley, she was ready for a new topic. “You’re so pretty Brooke Burke,” said Kirstie when asked by Brooke to walk us through the fall. “Let’s change the subject.”

So on to the next subject which is who was sent packing? For the second week in a row, the lowest scorer got the boot as Wendy Williams and her partner Tony Dovolani were eliminated.

“This has been a wonderful opportunity. I want to thank the judges and I want to thank Tony for teaching me how to dance,” said Wendy, 46. “Despite stereotypes, this is one black girl who can’t even doing the running man!”

Wendy added that she was excited to get back to her normal routine. “I’m probably the busiest person in terms of flying back and forth. I have a marriage, a child and a litany of other things to hold together.”

Meanwhile, after having endured a somewhat embarrassing fall yesterday, Kirstie wants the world to know she is still standing strong. The 60-year-old actress hit up a tattoo parlor with Cheryl Burke late Monday and got the word “Unbroken” tattooed on her wrist.

“No longer broken… In body or spirit,” tweeted Kirstie later adding, “Just FYI… I was planning on getting a tattoo for awhile. Your votes sealed it. Thanks for al the great ideas….xxoxo.” Photos of Kirstie’s tattoo below.

It’s week 3 on Dancing With The Stars and the theme of this week was storytelling as each star had to tell a personal tale of love, loss, triumph or heartache.

But first things first as the big story of the night was pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 31, who took a fall on the dance floor bringing down his partner Kirstie Alley, 60. “My thigh just gave out. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry,” Maksim told the judges afterwards. “It has nothing to do with her.” Photos of the fall below.

The fall didn’t seem to affect their scores as the pair managed to earn a 21 for their rumba dance. Meanwhile the real stars of the night were model Petra Nemcova and NFL player Hines Ward, as they both earned the first 9s of the season. Petra finished the night with a high score of 25 for her “beautiful” waltz while Hines also tied for first place, after receiving a 25 score for his samba dance which he dedicated to his mom who was sitting in the front row.

Kendra Wilkinson showed some improvement earning her highest score of the season – a 23 for her hot rumba, which told the tale of her romance with NFL player Hank Baskett. Judge Len praised her “beautiful feet” and “gorgeous leg activity.”

Failing to show any improvement was talk show host Wendy Williams who continued to struggle. Wendy earned the lowest score of the night, a 15 for her foxtrot.

Below is the full scoreboard from last night -

Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 25
Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin: 25
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 23
Kendra Wilkinson & Louis van Amstel: 23
Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 21
Kirstie Alley & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 21
Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 21
Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 20
Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya: 20
Wendy Williams & Tony Dovolani: 15

The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars premieres tonight on ABC as eleven celebrities will step into the ballroom vying for that Mirror Ball trophy.

The celebs this season include Kirstie Alley, Ralph Macchio, Sugar Ray Leonard, talk show host Wendy Williams, and Kendra Wilkinson.

Kendra, who is the early on favorite to win, reveals her strategy to win this season will be to show off some skin! “If I’m going to go skimpy, I’m going skimpiest,” said Kendra to Extra, adding that her hubby Hank Baskett does not mind. “He’s like, ‘If you’re going to do this, go all in, and don’t be shy about anything.’”

Kendra also reveals she experienced her first injury when she hurt her toe while rehearsing with partner Louis Van Amstel. “I wasn’t wearing my closed-toe ballroom shoes. I was wearing the cha-cha shoes, and I jammed my freakin’ toe in his foot. It hurt really bad.” She added, “No pain, no gain, right?”

Meanwhile, dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy reveals he and his celeb partner Kirstie are actually working well together. “Her strengths are that she wants to do it. She just wants to dance. Sometimes I think she forgets what we are doing,” Maksim dished to In Touch Weekly “I’m like, ‘It’s a show!’ and she’s like, ‘no, just teach me [the steps], I want to dance!’”

The 11 celebrities will either dance the foxtrot or the cha cha cha tonight while the first elimination won’t take place until Tuesday, March 29.

The DWTS two-hour premiere kicks off at 8/7c.

Days after announcing the celebrity-star pairings, ABC has now unveiled the official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 12.

Above is a photo of Playboy Playmate and E! reality star Kendra Wilkinson, who has been paired up with Louis van Amstel. According to numerous reports, Kendra, 25, is the favorite to win the show.

Meanwhile, 60-year-old actress Kirstie Alley is hoping to use the show as a weight loss vehicle. “I’ve lost 60 pounds, and I have 30 or 40 more to go,” the former Jenny Craig spokesperson told US Magazine this week. “And I think with this strenuous, rigorous dance schedule, I think it’s going to work. It’s exciting.”

That should no problem for Kirstie, who is paired with hotness/tough hard-ass teacher Maksim Chmerkovskiy . The 12th season of Dancing With The Stars will officially kick off on March 21.

Following the very dramatic and scandalous last season of the Bachelor, the ABC hit show returns this year in what is being called a scandal free season.

The 15th season of the Bachelor brings us back Brad Womack, a 38-year-old Texas bar owner. ABC’s decision to choose Brad as the new bachelor was met with some criticism as some felt he already had his chance and blew it. This is in reference to Brad’s now infamous decision to not pick either of this two finalists, DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft, back in 2007.

In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Brad reveals he has turned a new leaf and even declares he is “very much in love” with his final pick. “I did find love, and I’m very happy to say that,” Brad said. “I’m very much in love. I’m a happy guy.”

Brad adds, “A true love story happened.” The new season of the Bachelor premieres Jan. 3 (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.

In related Bachelor news, Dancing With The Stars professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy blogged recently that he is now filming the Ukrainian version of the Bachelor. Even more interesting, Maksim revealed ABC had asked him to be the Bachelor on the US version but he declined.

A day following the shocking elimination of he and his partner Brandy on Dancing With The Stars, pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy is letting loose!

In a new interview with E! Online, Maksim, 30, voices his disdain for DWTS. “This season has just been ridiculous,” he stated while also slamming Bristol Palin. Reason? It all has to do with an interview Bristol did on Monday with In Touch magazine during which she stated: “Maks does not like me. He thinks I don’t deserve to be here because I’m not the best dancer.” Excerpts from Maksim’s interview below -

What about the alleged right-wing conspiracy theory keeping Bristol on the show? Are you starting to believe it?
I definitely think that the system is flawed. I think there are a lot of problems with it. I have a lot of friends in the Philadelphia area who couldn’t call at all. People here, in front of me, picked up the phone, dialed one time and it said, “Thank you for voting. You are over your limit.” Anybody crazy would think, “This is a conspiracy theory. Everybody’s out there and wants Bristol to win.” Not at all. I think it’s just a flawed system.

Are you mad at all about it?
I felt really disappointed with Bristol. On Monday night, I found out that she went on record saying that I said something about her along the lines of, “I don’t like her because she’s still here and she’s not a good enough dancer.” Every time I’ve opened my mouth about Bristol, I’ve been nothing but supportive…For her to come out on Monday night and totally smear my name the way she did, that’s just completely uncalled for…I have no idea where she got it from, but wherever she got it from, shame on her and shame on whoever told her that.

Maksim also added that he doesn’t care who wins at this point but he is rooting for Kyle Massey.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON MAKSIM’S COMMENTS? IS DWTS’ SYSTEM FLAWED?

Fans of Dancing With The Stars are still abuzz in what some are calling the most shocking elimination ever.

Despite being in the top 2 for most of the season, singer Brandy, 31, and her dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy fell short last night as they were eliminated from the dance competition just a week before the finals.  Elimination is based on both judges scores and viewer votes.

Just how shocking was Brandy’s elimination? Well for one, you could hear a collective gasp as well as some loud boos coming from the audience. Even Bristol Palin, who advanced to the finals despite receiving the lowest scores for 7 straight weeks, looked stunned following the announcement that she was safe.

“I don’t know how to feel right now. It hasn’t processed yet for me,” said a visibly stunned and emotional Brandy right after hearing the news.

“I am numb,” Brandy told UsWeekly after the show. “I mean, I gave it everything I had. And I don’t have any regrets at all. I’m so proud of me, and I say that humbly.”

As for Maks, he seemed to take the news better, perhaps being that he is used to the routine by now. “The fact that people vote and their voices count. I love the fact that this show represents that, represents the people’s choice,” he said.

However, the next comment Maks made now has some people wondering if this will be his last season on DWTS.  “I don’t regret a second of the last five years of my being on the show and definitely not a second of me being on this season. It’s been an amazing journey.”

Thoughts – While Bristol has vastly improved through the season, no one can argue that Brandy deserved to be in the finals much more than Bristol. I ask again, why is Bristol even on the show? What exactly is her accomplishment? I honestly feel bad for Bristol as she shouldn’t even be on the show to begin with. She is not a “star,” not even a reality star. And now, she is simply being used as a pawn in a dance contest that has turned political.

People are obviously voting for her to make a statement.  Let’s face it, while she seems like a nice girl, she doesn’t have the charm, personality or charisma of Kyle Massey, who has won the hearts of viewers.  Plus with the exception of the last 2 weeks, Bristol seemed all but over the show.  At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bristol won as that would definitely make the ultimate “statement.”
