The official cast photos of Dancing With The Stars season 13 have now been released!

Above is the first glimpse of Chaz Bono, the first transgendered contestant on the show, in his dancing costume alongside partner Lacey Schwimmer. As we reported, the casting of Chaz, 42, has proven to be a rather controversial one for ABC with some fans voicing their disapproval.

Below are more photos of the remaining “stars” which includes David Arquette, Nancy Grace, Kristin Cavallari, Carson Kressley and their dancing partners!

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting today that Rob Kardashian has been slacking off when it comes to practicing his dance moves. Rob’s partner Cheryl Burke is reportedly “fed up” with him as he refuses to practice for more than 2 hours with her. Other contestants are putting in over 5 hours a day.

Cheryl now feels this shows Rob’s lack of interest in doing the show. And while he’s busy not practicing, Rob is reportedly bragging to his older sister Kimmie Kardashian that he will top her DWTS performance by making it past week 3. Good luck with that one Robbie!

Dancing With The Stars returns to ABC on Sep. 19 at 8/7c.

Val is the younger brother of DWTS hotness Maksim Chmerkovskiy. And despite the speculation that we might be getting the first same-sex couple this season, openly gay style guru Carson Kressley is paired up with a female partner.

Returning this season is three-time champ Derek Hough after taking a break last season. Derek is paired up with Ricki Lake.

Below are the full pairings for DWTS Season 13 -

Meanwhile this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, who is arguably the biggest casting surprise this year, is speaking out on doing the show.

In a new interview, Nancy reveals she thought she was dreaming when she got the call from DWTS. “I feel like Cinderella that got invited to the ball. I don’t know how to dance,” Nancy, 51, states. “I don’t know what I’m going to wear, but I know I have been invited.”

Nancy adds, “I want to have fun. Ever since my fiance was killed in ’79, my whole life has been about putting bad guys away, going to law school, making law review, trying cases, representing crime victims – and this is such a departure, to get to dress up in crazy outfits and dance. Are you kidding me?!” Nancy also states she is NOT counting on Casey Anthony’s vote!

The new season of DWTS premieres Sep. 19 on ABC.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE PAIRINGS? WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE TO WIN IT ALL?

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.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THESE PAIRINGS? WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE TO WIN?

You just knew it was going to be one of those nights on Dancing With The Stars results show when the bottom two dancers, Kurt Warner and Bristol Palin, were announced safe early on during the episode.

The couple who got the axe? None other than The Hills’ star Audrina Patridge and her partner Tony Dovolani. The elimination is probably the most shocking yet this season as Audrina not only came in second place on Monday night, but she has been consistently good throughout the season.

Following the announcement that Audrina and Jennifer Grey were in the bottom two, judge Len Goodman voiced his disapproval: “That one of these is going home is absolutely ludicrous. It’s nonsense.”

“I’ve had so much fun this entire experience,” said Audrina. “Tony has been such an amazing teacher.” To the judges, she added, “Thank you for all the comments.”

But fret not for Audrina as she told UsWeekly Tuesday night, following her elimination, that her solo reality show has been picked up. “The show with Mark Burnett got picked up by VH1 so the journey continues!” she said. “It’s a reality show about me and my family. Everything that people have wondered about me, they’ll now get to see! And I hope Tony [Dovolani, her DWTS partner] will be on it! I’d love to make some trips to NY to see him because we are such good friends now!”

TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED BY AUDRINA’S ELIMINATION? WHO SHOULD HAVE WENT HOME INSTEAD?

It was Story Night on week 3 of Dancing With The Stars following the departures of David Hasselhoff and Michael Bolton.

The night got kicked off with a hot samba dance courtesy of Jennifer Grey, who donned a sexy school teacher outfit, and partner Derek Hough. The duo received a good score of 24 for their dance number.

The biggest shocker of the night was the highest score going to Audrina Patridge and her partner Tony Dovolani. Audrina earned the first 9 of the season, receiving a total score of 26 for her waltz, which was called “the most touching dance of the night.” Audrina dedicated her waltz dance to our fallen troops and their families.

Also tying for second place with a score of 24 were Brandy and Rick Fox. The lowest score of night went to Margaret Cho, receiving a score of 18 for her not so impressive samba.

The results show is set to air tonight at 9/8c.  Michael Bolton will also be returning tonight, but fear not, as he is returning to sing and not to dance.  Susan Boyle was originally scheduled to perform but had to cancel due to a severe throat infection.  The scores from last night below -

Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani: 26
Brandy & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 24
Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough: 24
Rick Fox & Cheryl Burke: 24
Kurt Warner & Anna Trebunskaya: 23
Kyle Massey & Lacey Schwimmer: 23
Florence Henderson & Corky Ballas: 20
The Situation & Karina Smirnoff: 20
Bristol Palin & Mark Ballas: 19
Margaret Cho & Louis van Amstel: 18

Dancing With The Stars

The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.

There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star, The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.

Above is this season’s Kate Gosselin Bristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.

Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”

As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.

And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.

The favorites to win at the moment? Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy according to Las Vegas odds.

Reality TV Queen Kate Gosselin, who might or might not be appearing on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice, is reportedly gearing up to write yet another book.

Kate, who’s last book ‘I Just Want You to Know’ bombed after its April release, is set to pen an instructional manual for fellow single moms and dads, you know because with the eight kids, bodyguards, nannies, housekeepers, multiple TV appearances, she is just like any other normal single parent.

Moving right along, UsWeekly is reporting Kate is once again the target in a new child labor law probe for the second time in a year span. This time around, Pennyslyvania Rep. Thomas Murt is arguing that state law permits children under the age of 7 to work in movies, but not on television. This would make Kate’s co-stars sextuplets ineligible to appear on her show. However, the possibility of the kids not being allowed to film for TLC is very unlikely.


Kate’s former Dancing With The Stars professional partner Tony Dovolani is also speaking out about the TLC reality star. When asked if he still keeps in touch with Kate at Wednesday’s ESPY awards show red carpet, Tony said: “I’ll be honest. I actually haven’t stayed in touch with her, she hasn’t stayed in touch with me.”

“I needed a break,” continued Tony. “I got a break with my family, and she’s not someone I worry about. I am more concerned with my own family.” Ouch!

Tony was also asked his opinion on the Jake and Vienna split, being that Jake also appeared on DWTS this season. According to Tony, the split was no surprise to him. “In public, I think they were great,” he said of the twosome. “In public, they only showed that they were in love with each other. But you could tell it was fake.”

As for how he new it was just a showmance, Tony added – “You can tell because you can look at a person and tell if they’re in love or they’re not in love. Me being married for ten years, I knew it wasn’t going to last.”
