Ugh. Two of my favorite Dancing with the Stars pros have revealed that they will not be participating in the upcoming season. I mean, my interest level wasn't that great to begin with… but still… now it's nearly non-existent.
According to TMZ, Maksim Chmerkovskiydecided not to dance this season, to pursue other projects, and broke the news to producers a few days ago. I imagine they're still crying in their Cherrios. Oh wait… that's just me.
Then, when asked about the upcoming season, Chelsie Hightowerlet it slip that she, too, will not be dancing. These people clearly want to make Dancing with the Stars as uncomfortable as possible for me. Will Emily Maynard be the cherry on top of my misery sundae?
Meanwhile, dance troupe member Sharna Burgesstweeted that she has graduated to pro. Good for her, but she's no Chelsie.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Tierra LiCausi has really gotten the loser edit on this season's Bachelor. And it is one we all know she definitely deserved. Even Sean Lowe embarrassingly admits he was completely duped and said she had no business being on the show in the first place!
Tierra has apparently moved on and recently announced her engagement. She's also possibly completely done with Bachelor Nation (until Bachelor Pad waves a potential $250,000 in her face!). The Women Tell All special is taping today and one person is still undecided if she'll appear or not – Tierra!
“She’s very upset with the way she came across on the show,” an insider shares with Wetpaint. “At this point, all she wants is for everyone to forget about her. She knows going to Women Tell All will just draw more attention to how crazy she acted and how nasty she came across.”
The hometown dates are usually either really boring, when the families are completely willing to accept the Bachelor into their lives after only two hours, or really awkward, when one or two family members remain skeptical and/or actively sabotage. Sean's hometown dates are no exception.
"Family is so big for me," Sean says. "This is a great week for me to really get a good sense of where these women come from." Based on the intro, it appears as if AshLee comes from Baggageville, Catherine's sisters are Cinderella levels of jealous, Lindsay comes from The Happy Locker, and Desiree's brother (Holla!) is a Menace II Reality TV Love.
“They’re officially dating,” an insider dishes to In Touch. “She went to Arizona and visited him already.” However, a source Emily Maynard claims Arie's motives are suspect! “He’s hanging onto fame. Of course, he’s dating someone from the show!”
Selma Alameri is/was one of my favorite bachelorettes on the Bachelor this season. Please. Don't confuse "favorite bachelorette" with "the one" for Sean Lowe. It is more about whom I find entertaining and likable and less about whom I think Sean should pretend to be in love with for three to six months. 😉
Unfortunately, Sean kicked Selma to the curb after she refused to take part in the Polar Bear Plunge in Canada. Personally, I wouldn't have done it either, and I admire Selma for staying true to herself rather than selling out for a one in nine chance at a bound-to-fail relationship with Sean.
Sean tried to talk Selma into taking the plunge – saying things like you only live once and once in a lifetime opportunity – but she stood her ground. "I told him that if anybody was in danger, I would jump in and save them," Selma said. "But just to jump in for no reason, just to prove something to somebody, I said 'I don't feel like I should put my life at risk like that.' Once I have it in my head, 'no is no' – I won't be peer pressured."
While the wilderness races in Montana and the polar bear plunges in Canada were a ton of fun, Sean Lowe is looking forward to spending the next week in the beautiful St. Croix. Hopefully, a warmer climate means Tierra LiCausi might make it through one week without catching hypothermia or suffering a similar major medical drama. My luck… Tierra will get attacked by a shark… Sean will give her another pity rose.
Even in paradise Tierra complains within minutes. She isn't happy about the shared sleeping arrangements and rolls a cot into a sitting room, saying, "I'm not about to share some room with girls I don't care for. I'm not friends with girls who like my boyfriends. I think it's just better for me to have my own private space." Later, Lesley quips, "I want to roll away her rollaway into the freaking ocean." Amen.
Now Tierra is whining about how she hasn't had a one-on-one date with Sean even though he's "crazy" about her. News Flash: Sean is crazy about all of the girls! Tierra thinks she should be Sean's highest priority at this point; however, AshLee scores the first date. A bitter Tierra refers to AshLee as a cougar. AshLee is only 32 years old, mind you, and Tierra is obviously an immature 24-year-old bitch.
