Nicole Scherzinger


With loss of their most controversial contestant ever, Kate Gosselin that is, the show must go on during tonight’s episode of Dancing With The Stars.

So what can we expect from week 6? Well the seven remaining celebrities, actress Pamela Anderson, ESPN anchor Erin Andrews, Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek, comedienne Niecy Nash, NFL player Chad Ochocinco, Bachelor Jake Pavelka and pop singer Nicole Scherzinger, will be dancing to either the Argentine tango or the samba.

Erin, Evan, Jake and Nicole will perform the samba, while Pamela, Niecy and Chad will dance the Argentine tango.  All the couples will then take place in a swing marathon as well.

DWTS has experienced its highest ratings ever this season, even beating out the widely popular American Idol on more than one occasion. However, with the departure of Kate Gosselin, the question on everyone’s minds seems to be will the ratings take a hit? Only time will tell.

Speaking of Kate, there’s a new story claiming that most of the DWTS cast was glad to see her leave. According to E! Online, Kate was not fun to be on the set and even made demands such as asking crew members not to look at her, thus her recent elimination leaving everyone happy.  “Everyone couldn’t be more relieved,” says a show insider. “We all had to walk on eggshells around [Kate]. At least we don’t have to worry about where our eyes can or can’t drift off to now.”

The source continues, “Kate just thought that everyone was out to get her.  That’s why she had all of those crazy rules, like how she was to be approached.”  Adds the source, “She was not an easy person to work with.”



The eight remaining couples of Dancing With The Stars hit the stage Monday night during a special ‘Moving Night’ edition of the hit show.

Coming in first place was Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough’s Pretty Woman-inspired tango. The duo received a standing ovation from the crowd to go along with their almost perfect score of 29. Judge Len called it “the best dance of the season so far.” Carrie Ann Inaba added, “Every moment, you could have taken a snapshot and it would have just been art.”

Olympic ice skater Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya found themselves in second place this week, ending their two consecutive weeks at the top. They received a high score of 27 for their rumba dance to “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing,” from Armageddon.

Jake Pavelka found himself in 3rd place for the first time this season with the 23 score he received for donning his tighty whiteys while dancing the cha-cha to “Old Time Rock & Roll” from Risky Business. In fourth place was Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The duo received a score of 22 for their Pulp Fiction dance. Perhaps it’s just me, but I thought they performed better than a 22.

In last place for the second straight week was reality mom Kate Gosselin, who seemed to take a few step backwards after receiving the Judges’ praises for her performance last week. Kate was shown once again in rehearsals bitching at questioning her partner Tony Dovolani every step of the way. She looked to be taking a stroll rather than dancing as she attempted to fox trot to the Breakfast Club movie. Kate deservedly received harsh criticism for the judges. Bruno called the performance “catatonic.” He added, “Tony could have gotten more life out of a frock on a coat hanger.” Ouch.

The scores from last night below –

Nicole & Derek: 29
Evan & Anna: 27
Jake & Chelsie: 23
Erin & Maks: 22
Pam & Damien: 21
Chad & Cheryl: 18
Niecy & Louis: 18
Kate & Tony: 15

Tonight brings us the fifth week of Dancing With The Stars. The theme for tonight is ‘Movie Night.’ The eight remaining couples will be doing the Jive, Quickstep, Cha Cha Cha, Tango, Foxtrot and Rumba to iconic songs from famous films such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Breakfast Club” and “Risky Business,” among others.

Niecy Nash and Louis Van Amstel will reportedly be dancing the Jive to “La Bamba,” while rumored couple Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy will also dance the Jive to the “Pulp Fiction” movie.

The most interesting dance of the night will likely be The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka who will sporting his tighty whiteys to recreate Tom Cruise’s popular underwear scene from Risky Business, set to the tune of “Old Time Rock ‘n Roll.” Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough will be dancing the Tango to a scene from Pretty Woman. Another rumored couple Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke will perform a Quickstep to The Bare Necessities” from The Jungle Book.



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’s attempt 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 Scherzinger who 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 Andrews and 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 Turner and 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.”

The full scores are below –

Evan & Anna: 52
Nicole & Derek: 50
Pamela & Damien: 47
Chad & Cheryl: 44
Erin & Maks: 39
Jake & Chelsie: 38
Niecy & Louis: 36
Aiden & Edyta: 33
Kate & Tony: 32

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.

Week 3 of Dancing With The Stars brought us some solid performances and great story telling.

Taking the lead this week for the first time this season is Olympic Ice Skater Evan Lysacek, who earned a score of 25 for his high energy quick step dance. Evan’s high score was all the more impressive considering he was dancing on two broken toes. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba called his dance “twinkling, athletic and energetic.”

Tying for second place were ESPN reporter Erin Andrews and PussyCat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. Both ladies received a 23 score for their dances. Erin vowed not to let the death threats get in the way of her dancing, and she had one of the most entertaining performances of the night when she did the waltz while blindfolded with partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Carrie Ann called the dance “Breathtakingly artistic.”  Nicole also had a solid dance with partner Derek Hough, but the judges deducted points citing they broke two rules of the quick step.

The lowest score of the night once again went to 80 year old Buzz Aldrin, who was accused of just sort of walking through his dance. For the third week in a row, the second lowest score of the night went to Kate Gosselin, though her partner Tony Dovolani had predicted the “Paso Doble is going to be Kate’s best dance.” Kate received a poor 15 points for what Carrie Ann called an “odd” dance. It will be interesting to see if Kate will be saved once again when the results show airs tonight as 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

Kate was also shown having a small meltdown during one of her dance practices. The mom of eight just was shown crying for no reason in particular. However in a new interview with ABC, Kate reveals her reason for tearing up. “I had a little meltdown,” she said. “And I heard [my kids] upstairs. And I just started crying. And I was like, ‘I just miss my kids.'” Allrighty Kate.

The scores from last night are below –

Evan & Anna: 26
Erin & Maks: 23
Nicole & Derek: 23
Jake & Chelsie: 21
Niecy & Louis: 21
Pamela & Damien: 21
Aiden & Edyta: 20
Chad & Cheryl: 20
Kate & Tony: 15
Buzz & Ashly: 13



Week 2 of Dancing With The Stars brought us some phenomenal dance moves but the topic on every one’s minds seems to be the drama involved with some of the dancing couples.

The most intense fight came from Kate Gosselin and her partner Tony Dovolani, who even threatened to quit during one of their rehearsals.  It all started when Kate complained that she was “stressed,” Tony then said, “Nothing in dancing is natural to Kate.”

“He feels like I undermine him as a teacher,” Kate, 34, snapped to the camera before telling Jon Tony, “You’re not taking into consideration how I learn!” Kate walked away saying, “I’m done, I’m done today.” Tony then removed his mic pack and said, “I quit!”  causing Kate to break down saying, “I don’t get it!”

Shortly after, Tony came back saying he overreacted, and the two made up. Kate then said, “A lot of people quit on me in my life.”  Tony has also said he regrets telling Kate he quit.

In other DWTS news, the highest score of the night went to Pussycat doll Nicole Scherzinger, who did a very impressive jive dance with partner Derek Hough, earning them the first 10s of the season.  The couple received an outstanding 28 points out of 30.

Coming in second was Olympic ice skater Evan Lysacek, who received a 24 score for his high energy jive with partner Anna Trebunskaya.

In third place was rumored couple Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Their fluid foxtrot earned them a 23 point score and a compliment from judge Bruno, who said the ESPN reporter has “natural elegance.”

At the bottom this week was once again Kate Gosselin and Buzz Aldrin.  Kate earned a score of 15 as she looked extremely mortified and robotic while attempting to do the jive.  Buzz earned a score of 12 as his foxtrot failed to sizzle.

The scores for the 2 weeks combined is below –

Nicole & Derek: 53
Evan & Anna: 47
Erin & Maks: 44
Pam & Damien: 43
Jake & Chelsie: 40
Niecy & Louis: 39
Shannen & Mark: 38
Aiden & Edyta: 34
Chad & Cheryl: 34
Kate & Tony: 31
Buzz & Ashly: 26

Tonight brings us week 2 of the sizzling new season of Dancing With The Stars. As we reported last week, the premiere episode was the highest rated ever in DWTS history with over 23.9 million viewers.

So what can we expect in week 2? Well we have some news and updates below –

Kate Gosselin Turns 35 – Kate celebrated her 35th birthday on Sunday away from her eight kids, as she was in Los Angeles preparing for the show. When asked what she wished for on her birthday, Kate revealed it was to stay on DWTS and make it through the first elimination. “I hope I’m not one of the first to go,” said Kate to PEOPLE. “I really like it here. You become close to everybody so fast.” Kate might not get her wish as some are predicting she will be the first to go.

Erin Andrews Dating Maksim? – This was the big rumor/story that swept through the web last week. Many noticed the two seem to have some great chemistry on the show, and Maksim, 30, didn’t help put the rumors to rest when he answered “maybe” when asked if he and Erin were dating. Erin, 31, also gushed about Maksim, “I think its funny when you are paired up with a really attractive guy. You turn into a fifteen year-old and don’t know what to do,” Erin said, giggling, “he makes me nervous!” The two have been seen spending lots of time together outside of DWTS. Photos of the two are below.

Nicole and Derek Not DatingNicole Scherzinger ,who currently leads the show with the 25 points she earned last week, was also rumored to be getting hot and heavy with her dancing partner Derek Hough. Nicole however shut down the rumors saying she is dating Race car driver Louis Hamilton. The former Pussycat doll leader is still the favorite to win the show.

What To Expect Tonight – As for what is to come tonight, we can expect a foxtrot dance from Erin and Maksim. The duo will be dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Love Story,” which will not help put the dating rumors to rest. Kate Gosselin also reveals she will be doing the jive dance with partner Tony. Doing the jive as well will be Evan Lysaceck, who says “the jive is difficult, but it’s fun.”



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.

The full scores for the premiere night is below:

Nicole & Derek: 25
Evan & Anna: 23
Erin & Maks: 21
Pam & Damian: 21
Jake & Chelsie: 20
Chad & Cheryl: 18
Niecy & Louis: 18
