'Dancing With the Stars' Week Eight Performance Recap: Kirstie Is 'Hot,' Ralph Crashes and Burns

It was the last dance-off before the semi-finals, and there's still no clear front-runner on this season of 'Dancing With the Stars." Monday night's performances were all over the map, with the leaderboard once again being shaken up like a snow globe. Neither of last week's toppers (Ralph Macchio and Hines Ward) were able to retain their front-runner status. In fact, while Hines only fell to...

'The Celebrity Apprentice' Season 4, Episode 10 Recap

['The Celebrity Apprentice' - 'Laugh On'] Color me confused, but I never guessed that this season of 'The Celebrity Apprentice' would become 'The Meat Loaf Show.' Nor did I ever think he was a serious contender when it came to winning ... until now. The emotional rocker dominated much of this week's three-hour show -- yes, three hours -- with his ups and downs, replacing NeNe Leakes as the...

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Week Seven Performances

It's getting down to the wire on this season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' and the show finally cracked the whip to separate the winners from the losers. In what might have been their toughest week yet, each of the six contestants had to learn not one but two dances -- their own and a group number. (Their individual scores were added to the overall group score for a total combined possible high...

'The Celebrity Apprentice' Season 4, Episode 9 Recap

['The Celebrity Apprentice' - 'Shear Madness'] Man, oh, man, it was a wild night on the 'The Celebrity Apprentice.' Last week's questionable firing of La Toya Jackson left a bad taste in my mouth, as loudmouth NeNe Leakes and shrewd strategist Star Jones teamed together and threw her under the bus to save their own skins. She wound up doing the elevator ride of shame down to the street after...

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Week Six Elimination

Wow. Just "wow." That's all I have to say about this week's 'Dancing With the Stars' results show. OK, I'm kidding. I do have more to say ... because Guilty Pleasures week literally blew my mind. A pre-show Hanson bonus? 'American Idol' castoff Pia Toscano and rumored boyfriend Mark Ballas performing together? A New Kids on the Block-Backstreet Boys super-group mash-up (aka NKOTBSB, as they...

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Six Performance Recap: Another Pro Stumbles

Get 'em while they're hot ... and cheesy. Yes, it was Guilty Pleasures Night on 'Dancing With the Stars,' featuring house band Hanson and each of the seven remaining contestants grooving to songs people are embarrassed to sing along to in public. (Well, some of us, anyway.) With the leaderboard topper changing from week to week, Monday night's show proved it's time to separate the wheat from...

Is 'Dancing With the Stars' Stacked Against Certain Celebs?

All's fair in love, war and 'Dancing With the Stars.' Well, maybe not 'DWTS.' Since it premiered in 2005, 'DWTS' has offered us a mélange of the rhythmically challenged and the naturally talented, pitting, for example, a clumsy John Ratzenberger against a nimble Apolo Ohno. While a wide array of contestants with varying skills certainly makes for good TV, we're beginning to wonder...

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Week Five Elimination

The race is tightening up on 'Dancing With the Stars,' and we're getting to the point where the weekly results show is becoming a bit of a nail-biter. After Monday night's performances, I was nervous there might be a "shocking" elimination, considering that the judges inexplicably threw two-time leaderboard topper Ralph Macchio into a three-way tie for last place with mediocre Kendra Wilkinson...

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Week Five Performances

It could be a 'Dancing With the Stars' first: It's almost halfway through the season and there's no clear front-runner. Each week, someone new tops the leaderboard, which means it's anyone's game right now. This week's Americana theme proved to shake things up yet again, with Hines Ward kicking Chelsea Kane from the top spot and two-time leaderboard topper Ralph Macchio finding himself in a...
