Pee Wee Herman Dancing With the StarsPee-wee Herman wants to dance! Let's make this happen.

Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee's alter ego) told E! Online that he's ready to go after the mirrorball trophy on 'Dancing With the Stars.' He's been in the audience as support, but he wants to get on that dance floor.

"[I go] to support my friend David Arquette," Pee-wee said. "I hope to be dancing myself on Dancing With the Stars next season! That's why I'm there all the time, to get my face up there. Trying to butter up the producers and everything. Jury's out, I haven't heard yet."

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 5: Ricki's Roger Rabbit Flops, J.R. Shines

Ricki Lake & Derek go '80sIt was '80s night on 'Dancing With the Stars' this week and that meant big hair, big shoulder pads, acid brights, a guest performance by The Bangles and ... Roger Rabbit?

The seemingly unstoppable Ricki Lake didn't look so smooth doing the Roger Rabbit this week, even after some encouragement from surprise guest, filmmaker John Waters, who gave Ricki her big break in 1988's 'Hairspray.'

Unfortunately, Ricki just couldn't find the beat this week, and that definitely hurt her scores. After scoring two 10s last week for her thrilling 'Psycho' tango and being atop the leaderboard for three weeks in a row, Ricki dropped the ball this week, only scoring a 24 and losing her top spot to J.R. Martinez.

Derek and Julianne Hough'Dancing With the Stars' (Mon. 8PM ET, Tues. 9PM ET on ABC) fan favorite Derek Hough just keeps getting better and better. This week he and celebrity partner Ricki Lake -- who wasn't an early favorite to go all the way -- scored the first perfect 10s of the season from the judges.

On last night's live results show Hough blew the crowd away when he took to the floor with his sister Julianne for a jive. Now it appears that Derek did it all with a dislocated shoulder. Ouch!

According to 'The Hollywood Reporter,' Derek dislocated his shoulder in rehearsals yesterday, but after seeing the doctor he decided to dance through the pain and perform as planned.

Richard Simmons, Chaz Bono, Lacey SchwimmerMonday night saw a surprise cameo from 'Sweatin' to the Oldies' star Richard Simmons on 'Dancing With the Stars' as he put contestant Chaz Bono through his paces for his 'Rocky'-inspired routine.

However, Simmons' noticeably slimmed-down frame, amply showcased by his gold mesh tank top and tiny shorts, sparked fears among many viewers that he may be unwell.

A rep for the fitness guru denied that he's got any health problems. Tom Estey told 'People' that Simmons is "the healthiest he's ever been."

'Dancing With the Stars' - 'Week Four' eliminationIn between all those sightings of Cher there was a dance competition going on Monday night on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). And it was a nail-biter, with the incredibly entertaining Carson Kressley coming in dead last with the judges, while Ricki Lake earned the season's first perfect 10s.

Early front-runner Chynna Phillips had a very rough night, reflected in her low scores from the judges, tying her with Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace at one point ahead of Kressley.

Everyone knows Phillips is a stronger dancer than both of them; she just had a very bad night. Would America forgive her?

'Dancing With the Stars' Week Four: Ricki Gets a Perfect 10 & Cher Cries Over Chaz!

CHER!Let's face it: You don't really want a recap this week. You just want to know how many times the 'Dancing With the Stars' cameras panned to Cher. So, I'm going to try and do both.

Cher looked like a proud mama watching her son dance to the theme from 'Rocky.' it was Chaz's best performance ... EVER (but I'm not changing my mind about this). It even brought Carrie Ann -- and Cher! -- to tears. However, did the crowd really give Cher a standing ovation when Chaz mentioned her? Chaz, you may have had your best dance of the competition, but you still got served by your mother. Granted, your mother is Cher.

Speaking of Cher, one of my favorite parts of the night was watching Cher's reactions to the judges critiquing Chaz. She was cheering, clapping, jumping and even praying -- yes, praying. It was pretty adorable.

Why It's Time for Chaz Bono to Leave 'Dancing With the Stars'

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 10th 2011 4:45PM
Before you decide to hate me, hear me out. I was truly anticipating Chaz Bono's domination on the dance floor this season on 'Dancing With the Stars.' I was rooting for him, and not because of the controversy but because he seemed like he was having a great time in the ballroom.

But then that changed -- and so did my allegiance. It's hard not to be captivated by dancers like J.R. Martinez and Ricki Lake, both of whom have shown incredible natural dancing ability over the past few weeks. Chaz, meanwhile, seems to have lost his early sizzle. He looks like he's bored, confused and in pain most of the time. And where's the entertainment in that?

That's not to say that Chaz hasn't stepped out of his comfort zone and pushed himself these past three weeks, because he has, but I can't help but feel like keeping him on 'DWTS' is unfair to the other contestants -- and the viewers. So I'm just going to say it: It's time for Chaz to go. Here's why.

Did Cher Fans Save Chaz Bono from Elimination on 'DWTS'?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 5th 2011 8:30AM
Lacey Schwimmer and Chaz BonoIt's been a grueling few weeks for 'Dancing With the Stars' contestants and the punishing training schedule has taken its toll on Chaz Bono.

Although he's lost weight and gained confidence on the dance floor, Bono's been suffering from swollen painful ankles, which may go some way to explain why he and Lacey Schwimmer were in last place after their rumba Monday night.

After that performance fans could have expected to see Bono facing elimination last night, but he wasn't. Has he benefited from tactical voting by Cher fans?

!!!SPOILER ALERT!!! If you don't want to know who was eliminated last night, stop reading now.

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 3 Elimination Shocks the Judges (VIDEO)

'Dancing With the Stars' Week 3 ResultsAccording to Len Goodman on the 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) results show for this third week, "My expectations were that these two couples would be fighting for the final and maybe one of them going home with the mirrorball." He was talking about the two couples left standing in threat of elimination.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

That said, though, neither of them had the highest scores on the previous night. However, they didn't have the lowest scores either. What they clearly lacked was a large enough fan base. Or maybe, as Tom Bergeron suggested, everyone just assumed they were safe.

Cheryl Burke Says Rob Kardashian's Lost Weight, Gained Confidence on 'DWTS'

Rob Kardashian and Cheryl BurkeCheryl Burke could have been forgiven for having serious misgivings about being paired with the least-known of the Kardashian clan this season on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

However, as the competition's heating up, Burke says Rob Kardashian is working hard, losing weight and even donning tank tops as his confidence grows.

While the concept that any of the Kardashians could suffer from a lack of confidence seems unlikely, Burke says that her partner does.

'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Week Three Performances

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 3rd 2011 11:15PM
Karina & JRIt was a night of tears -- and the occasional sob -- for the 'Dancing With the Stars' contestants this week as the celebs picked the most memorable years of their lives and chose songs from those years. And, boy, was it dramatic.

After last week's nip-slip seen 'round the world, Nancy Grace got all teary-eyed and sloppy this week -- and not in a good way. Okay, so it's pretty hard to spice up a 'Moon River' waltz, but it could have been a bit more exciting. At this point, Nancy's only saving grace might be her partner Tristan MacManus because, let's face it, he's obviously a fan favorite.

However, the standout performance and real tearjerker of the night came from Iraq war veteran and burn survivor J.R. Martinez, who shared his harrowing story for the first time on the show. After serving two months as an United States Army infantryman in Iraq, J.R. was badly injured when his Humvee hit a landmine. He slipped into a coma and had intense burns on over 40 percent of his body, lost most of the hair on his head and one of his ears. He spent over two years in the hospital recovering and had 33 surgeries to repair the damage to his skin.

Quipping that she's in "full nip denial," Grace toook to Twitter to discuss what she called "the non nip-slip."

Lacey Schwimmer & Chaz Bono'It's only the second week of the competition, and we may have our first surprise elimination on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). Though it may also be revealing an interesting, but perhaps not unexpected, bias playing out this season.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Last week, viewer votes lined up easily with judges scoring in eliminating Ron Artest and new professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd. This week, though, America didn't agree with the judges. In fact, the eliminated dancer had one of the higher scores of the night.
