Comscore


It’s time for the results yet again on Dancing With The Stars, and the evening starts out with the female pros performing a very pro-ladies dance. It makes me wish I was much more coordinated than I am — what talent!

Of course, we resume with the highlights from Monday night and let’s be honest; Rob Kardashian has been doing an amazing job since the news that sister Kim’s divorce became public. I think he just needed his own spotlight after years (and years and years and years) of being in the shadow of a certain group of ladies that share his DNA. Likewise, Hope Solo’s shining performance — her best dance of the season per the judges — is revisited. Then, of course, the results show reminds us of the first perfect score (of two!!) of the season for J.R. Martinez’s waltz. Love. Him. If he doesn’t win, I will be very sad.

The show wastes some time with a mildly funny skit with the man who made me love this show… Jerry Rice. It’s the previous three dancers who are on the chopping block, and (duh) J.R. is deemed safe. Hope joins the winner J.R. in the semi-finals and poor Rob finds himself in unwarranted jeopardy. The show continues what it believes to be a funny NFL commentary sketch with Len Goodman playing an unconvincing Jim Nantz.

Andrea Bocelli performs, and as talented as he is, I am more a Bieber (read: I wouldn’t know timeless singing if it hit me in the face) fan. There is more Super Bowl-esque humor and critique. Really? ABC had nothing else to fill the time than this silly faux football discussion? I remember thinking it was dumb last year. Glad to see they brought it back. I take that back… it’s better than the crew having Len imitate Hope Solo’s nude ESPN magazine cover.

Tonight’s Macy’s Stars of Dance doesn’t highlight one individual, but instead focuses on a troupe from Cirque du Soliel performing to Michael Jackson hits. Sign me up and buy me ticket, please. Following that amazing performance is a number by Flo Rida. I’ll admit it; I still have his cell number in my phone from when he published it in an article to get “closer to his fans.” He’s yet to answer, but there’s something about getting to hear a rapper’s voicemail message.

The next two “stars” are up for judgment: Nancy Grace and my favorite (runner up) Ricki Lake, who didn’t live up to her past expectations with Monday’s performance. Of course, Ricki is safe and Nancy, once again, heads to the bottom. Dare I say she’ll be safe? It’s a tough call. She promotes herself constantly on her own show, clearly she has a fan base. Rob, not so much, but he does seem to come from a family America can’t seem to ignore (unfortunately), love them or loathe them. I know who I think deserves to keep dancing, but I think he’ll be trumped by Nancy’s massive following. We shall see after the commercial break.

Rob looks stoic and Nancy seems smug as they take their place for the results. WHAT? I was wrong and for once I’m kind of happy about it. Nancy is not going to the semi-finals. She exits with class,and her partner, Tristan, exits with even more class. He’s awesome.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE FINAL FOUR? WERE YOU SHOCKED TO SEE NANCY LEAVE? WHO DO YOU WANT TO WIN DWTS?

It was Halloween night on Dancing With The Stars but nothing too scary happened as the stars put on their best performances this season!

The stakes were high Monday night as each of the six contestants had to perform two dances each — one with their professional partners and a team dance with two other couples. The team-dance score was then applied to each couple in the group.

Coming in first place for the 5th time this season was Ricki Lake despite a rib injury. Ricki received a score of 27 for her paso doble with partner Derek Hough, before going on to perform another Paso Doble dance with her group. The group included Ricki, Rob Kardashian and Hope Solo. ‘Team Paso’ received a score of 26!

The biggest surprise of the night was Rob Kardashian, who gave his best performance of the season the same day his big sis Kim Kardashian filed for divorce. Rob received a good score of 25 for his sizzling tango to the “Addams Family” theme song with partner Cheryl Burke. “Rob, your best dance so far,” said judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Backstage, Rob spoke out about Kimmie’s divorce, stating: “We’re here to support her, whatever she does.”

Landing in last place was news anchor Nancy Grace. Nancy earned an okay score of 21 for her lackluster jive. “This wasn’t a good dance for you,” said judge Len Goodman. “It was a disappointment for me.” Nancy earned another 23 points for her group dance with war veteran J.R. Martinez and actor David Arquette.

Below are the full scores from last night including the solo dance and group dance:

Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: (27, 26) 53
Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: 25, 26) 51
Maks Chmerkovskiy & Hope Solo: (24, 26) 50
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: (25, 23) 48
David Arquette & Kym Johnson: (24, 23) 47
Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: (21, 23) 44

The results show airs tonight on ABC (9/8c) during which another celeb will be sent packing!

TELL US – WHO SHOULD BE VOTED OFF? IS IT NANCY’S TIME TO GO?

News anchor Nancy Grace is experiencing one of the great benefits of appearing on Dancing With The Stars, which the unavoidable weight loss!

Nancy, 51, reveals she has already shed over 10 pounds in just a few weeks of dancing! “I’ve inadvertently lost 10 lbs. on the I’m-too-tired-to-eat diet,” Nancy told PEOPLE on Friday. “By the time I get the children [3-year-old twins Lucy and John David] ready for school, then practice and then come home, I’m like exhausted.”

Unlike some other controversial figures who have danced before her and shall remain nameless, coughs – Kate Gosselin, Nancy surprisingly reveals she is enjoying her time on the show despite the grueling schedule. “If you would have told me five to seven hours of dance practice was fun, I would have never believed you,” she said, “but it is.”

Nancy, who is partnered with DWTS newbie Tristan MacManus, however admits she sometimes gets nervous and we’re guessing finding herself in the bottom two on Tuesday night did not help matters. “My nerves are much, much worse,” she said. “I’m a fish out of water on the dance floor. It’s a lot more nerve wracking than trying a murder case.”

In other news, the first DWTS dating rumors have finally emerged! In what we have come to expect every season, Star magazine is reporting that things are beginning to get hot and heavy between dancing partners Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas. Kristin was dumped by her NFL fiance Jay Cutler back in July, while Mark and American Idol alum Pia Toscano ended their 5-month relationship just two weeks ago.

Star reports the two share an “obvious attraction” that recently had “tongues wagging” during a recent outing. “She was sitting on his lap, and he nuzzled her neck,” an eyewitness tells the mag. “They were having dinner with Derek Hough but didn’t pay him any attention because they were too wrapped up in each other.”

And in usual DWTS fashion, Kristin and Mark issued a non-denial denial! Aka even though they might not really be dating, they would prefer fans to think they are so they can keep voting for them!

PEOPLE magazine caught up with the dancing couple to ask about the dating rumors. “That s––t’s already started,” Mark, 25, so eloquently stated. “She is a sweetheart. We have a lot of fun. We laugh a lot. We’re getting along great.”

Kristin also chimed in with her non-denial. “I kind of expect [the dating rumors], to be honest,” she says. “But that’s what happens when you put two people together.”

As for what led to the Mark and Pia break-up, the two officially stated they were simply too busy to keep seeing each other, though sources close to Mark reveal Pia became too clingy and jealous of his relationship with Kristin. Sources close to Pia however deny that stating Mark wanted to end things to make way for his showmance with Kristin.

A new episode of DWTS airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

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.

The new cast of Dancing with the Stars season 13 has been unveiled!

Following weeks of speculation, ABC officially announced the 12 latest “stars” who will be vying for the mirror ball trophy. While reports stated the network was working hard this season to get A-list celebs, it appears they fell rather short of that goal. The biggest name on the list is arguably actor David Arquette.

Other big names include this season’s Kate Gosselin Nancy Grace, Cher’s transgendered son Chaz Bono, Ricki Lake, and soccer player Hope Solo.

The biggest surprise might be the addition of fashion guru Carson Kressley, who is mostly known for his role on Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The casting of Carson is quickly fueling speculation that DWTS might have its first same sex couple this season!

And unfortunately for Housewives fans, RHOBH star Kim Richards did not make the cut. It was reported days ago that Kim was on the short list to get added to the cast. Kim tweeted late yesterday, “Sadly I’m not on #DWTS this season! That would have been so fun, good luck to everyone on it! It will be an amazing journey:) goodnight all!”

The complete list of “stars” below:

David Arquette, actor
Ron Artest, NBA player
Chaz Bono, LGBT activist (son of Sonny Bono and Cher)
Elisabetta Canalis, former girlfriend of George Clooney
Kristin Cavallari, reality TV star
Nancy Grace, TV talk-show host
Rob Kardashian, reality TV star
Carson Kressley, reality TV star
Ricki Lake, actress

The new season premieres September 19 on ABC at 8/7c.

southern charm cast mountain weekend

Holy first season unseen footage, Batman! After last night’s episode of Southern Charm, I’m sure some residents of the Holy City are thinking, “Holy crap!” Whitney Sudler-Smith is either brilliantly weaving some amazing drama or doesn’t have the final say when it comes to what makes it on (or stays off) the show. Either way, yowsers! After the great bourbon debacle of this decade, Craig Conover has changed direction. His new mission isn’t Gentry, it’s getting to the bottom of Whitney’s intense distaste for Kathryn Dennis. What better backdrop for the ensuing bombshell than Shepard “Shep” Rose’s Blue Ridge Mountain home? Throw in some Thomas Ravenel drunk dancing (to quote a friend, “Seems like a dream…it can’t be real!”), and we’ve got ourselves a stellar installment! 

As the Charmers rise and shine in the Lowcountry, Cameran Eubanks is channeling her inner domestic goddess with a crock pot meal while Craig and Shep opt for beers and bar food a fruit plate at Fuel. Craig admits he had a rough night with Naomie after falling from whiskey’s grace. Shep invites Craig to join the crew in Linville and ticks off the guest list. He’s decided not to include Kathryn (even though he’s Mr. Inclusive) after lunching with Whitney and Cameran–they won’t come if she attends. Craig informs Shep that Kathryn is on bed rest, so she won’t be able to come regardless…so an invitation can’t hurt and will only make her feel good. Shep dials up Kathryn who is excited to be invited even though she has to decline. Shep sends up a thank you to the bed rest gods for saving the day. In I’On, Thomas stops in to see Kathryn’s place, and she shares her conversation with Shep. T-Rav responds that he was planning on going, but maybe he won’t since she can’t. Or maybe he’ll just go for one night, nothing major…he’ll play it by ear. He feels the need to be vague when it comes to the details of Shep’s excursion because T-Rav is worried Kathryn will turn into T-Rex if he seems too excited about the trip.

In today’s Nene Leakes is not going to be happy about this one news, Kim Zolciak graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine!

The six months pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star dons a bikini to show off her growing baby bump. Kim reveals to the mag that she is drama-free and happier than ever during the bump-revealing photo shoot with Life & Style on Feb. 20.

Kim also opens up about her belly, her baby’s daddy to be Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, 25, whom she’s been dating since May, and the possibility of another baby in their future.

“I’ll be 33 when I have this baby, and I’m more in touch with my body now,” she tells Life & Style. Kim, who already has two daughters, Brielle, 13, and Ariana, 9, from a previous marriage, says she’s gained about 20 pounds so far. “I’m definitely eating a lot more now than I did with my girls.” Not that she — or her man Kroy — minds a little extra weight. “Kroy loves me pregnant. I don’t remember my ex-husband being that into it, but Kroy loves it. He tells me I’m so beautiful.”

Following nearly 10 months of dating, Kim reveals she and Kroy are finally moving in together in Atlanta, just in time for their newborn’s June arrival. “We’ll be moved in before the baby is born,” she says.

So are wedding bells in the near future? “Kroy’s perfect for me, but we’re not engaged,” Kim tells Life & Style. “If we get married, Kroy would like to have one more child, and I want one too!”

You can read more about Kim’s pregnancy in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine. A full shot of Kim’s growing belly is below –

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KIM’S NEW BABY BUMP PHOTO & INTERVIEW?

Just less than 24 hours after issuing a non denial on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Kim Zolciak is now confirming she is indeed pregnant in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star graces the magazine cover under the title, ‘Yes, I’m Pregnant!’ The baby daddy? Her 25-year-old NFL boyfriend Kroy Biermann. The two met in May and have been dating for six months.

“I was surprised! While it wasn’t planned, God clearly has a bigger and better plan for us and we’re excited,” the 32-year-old tells Life & Style.

And when it comes to the Star magazine news story that ran in October, during which her lady ex DJ Tracy Young spilled the beans about her pregnancy, Kim makes it clear she was shocked and appalled about the story. “I was appalled and disgusted by that. I wasn’t through my first trimester — you never know what could happen.”

But today, Kim is three months pregnant and tells the mag “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been.” This will make the third child for Kim as she has two daughters, Brielle, 13, and Ariana, 9, from a previous marriage.

When it comes to the sex of the baby, Kim shares that she and Kroy have yet to find out while adding that she cannot wait to start a family with him. “I definitely don’t want to get married while I’m pregnant,” she says. “But I can see myself marrying Kroy in the future.”

Nice to see Kim trapping snagging her man the old fashioned way. Guess you can’t teach an old whore new tricks. And feel free to mark your calendars! Kim’s new single, “Google Me,” will be available for download on iTunes on Nov. 30.
