Carson Kressley, 'The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'Carson Kressley talked 'Dancing With the Stars' on 'The Late Late Show' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), emphasizing that when Nancy Grace had her supposed wardrobe mishap, he wasn't looking.

"I'm straight and I wasn't looking," Craig Ferguson agreed. He then asked Kressley why he isn't dancing with a man, considering he's a gay man and that's what he'd do in his personal life.

Kressley said it was something he'd teased about before finding out who he was paired with, and genuinely considered as something he might want to do. That is, until he tried to lift up Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

'DWTS' Backstage Report: Ron Artest Talks About Exiting, Will Chaz and Lacey Dance to a Cher Song?

Tom Bergeron, Brooke Burke Charvet, Peta Murgatroyd, Ron ArtestIt bites having to leave 'Dancing With the Stars,' especially when you enjoy being there as much as Ron Artest did.

But the pro basketball player focused on the positive after host Tom Bergeron announced on last night's results show that Artest and pro partner Peta Murgatroyd would be the first couple to leave Season 13.

Artest is a lesson to us all in having to embrace a change that we might not be so thrilled about having to make.

The couple earned the lowest score on Monday's show and this was Murgatroyd's first year as a pro dancer so she's yet to build a fan base like veterans Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke and Mark Ballas have. That combination apparently proved to be the duo's undoing.

AOL TV was on the post-show press line to talk to Artest and Murgatroyd about their exit and to some of the remaining participants to get their thoughts on what they need to do to stay in the game.

'DWTS' Backstage Report: Who's Going Home First? Also, Julianne Hough is Returning!

'DWTS' 13 CastIt's difficult to predict just who's going to be eliminated on tonight's results show of 'Dancing With the Stars.'

The scores ranged from 14 for pro basketball player Ron Artest (a.k.a. Metta World Peace) to 22 each for singer Chynna Phillips and 'All My Children' actor J.R. Martinez.

Since Artest's pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd, is also new to the show it's not like she's bringing in a lot of votes. Still, pro athletes have always done well on 'DWTS.'

How did the stars and pro dancers think they did? AOL TV was on the post-show press line to get reactions.

Carson Kressley and Wendy Williams Break Down the 'DWTS' Field (VIDEO)

Carson Kressley on 'Wendy Williams' Carson Kressley might not be the most unbiased opinion you could seek to discuss who's going to win Season 13 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' considering he's vying for the Mirrorball Trophy himself. But on 'Wendy Williams' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) he talked a bit about his competitors with Williams.

Williams has a few strong opinions about how this season will go down. She doesn't see Kressley being eliminated first. That honor will go to George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, she predicted. Kressley made the point that Vegas is setting odds on the competition and has installed Canalis as the favorite. "Oh, she's not going to win," said Williams. "People don't like her because she hurt George Clooney's heart. And he's like an American [treasure]." At which point, Kressley jokingly yelled, "I hate her!"

The cast of 'Dancing With the Stars' on 'Today'Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb followed the buzz about the new cast of 'Dancing With the Stars' by giving their own rundown on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC). They went through each contestant one-by-on, showing their photos and giving commentary on each selection.

Carson Kressley, said Gifford, would provide the laughs for the show. Of former George Clooney girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis, Gifford said, "She's gotta do something now, she's not going out with George Clooney anymore." She also said she had known about Nancy Grace's casting in advance, but had to keep it secret.

Nancy Grace Explains How Michael Jackson Helped Her Say 'Yes' to 'Dancing With the Stars'

'Dancing With the Stars' Season 13 cast

It remains to be seen who'll emerge as the front-runner on the 13th season of 'Dancing With the Stars,' which debuts Monday, Sept. 19 at 8PM ET on ABC. But, by early indications, contestant Nancy Grace is the one to beat on the press line.

The outspoken Grace didn't mince words as to why she came to L.A. to do the show. She's here anyway to cover the Michael Jackson murder case.

"I understand the defense attorney wants the jury sequestered from Nancy Grace," says the former prosecutor. "I can only say that his client is charged with standing by, talking on the phone to his girlfriend while the King of Pop, a music icon, lay on that bed and died ... I don't think it was altogether a bad thing that they asked the jury to be sequestered from me."

Grace is hoping that this trial sends a message that even rich celebrities accused of crimes deserve justice.

"Many people are still angry at Michael Jackson over the molestation charges. What many of them don't see is that Lady Justice is blind to the defendant and the victim. It doesn't matter what Jackson did or didn't do. It's a slippery slope to start judging victims."

'Dancing With the Stars' Casting News Welcomed by GLAAD

by Catherine Lawson, posted Aug 30th 2011 5:55AM
'DWTS' Season 13 CastThe cast for 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 13 was announced last night, and the inclusion of both the show's first transgender contestant (Chaz Bono) and an openly gay man (Carson Kressley) has been applauded by the The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

As reported by 'Entertainment Weekly,' Herndon Graddick, senior of director of programs for GLAAD, said in a statement: "With both gay and transgender contestants represented on this upcoming season, ABC will send viewers a strong message about the diversity within the LGBT community."

Graddick added that, "At a time when transgender representation in the media is sorely lacking, Chaz Bono joining the cast is a tremendous step forward for the public to recognize that transgender people are another wonderful part of the fabric of American culture. Appearing on such a high-profile show will allow millions of Americans to get to know him in a whole new light."

Carson Kressley and Alex McCord Critique 'Real Housewives' Fashion on 'Watch What Happens Live' (VIDEO)

Carson Kressley on 'Watch What Happens Live'The 'Real Housewives' franchise produces some interesting fashion choices, which prompted a game of "Cars-in or Cars-out" Friday on 'Watch What Happens Live' (Thursdays and Sundays, 11PM on Bravo).

Fashion guru Carson Kressley was shown a photo of a cast member of 'The Real Housewives of New York City' with the face blurred out and was asked to give a thumbs up or thumbs down, with 'Housewife' Alex McCord filling in the details.

Ramona's "sexy Big Bird" look got a thumbs down. "It's probably not the most flattering shape," said Kressley. Simon's "sporty gothic" look also got a thumbs down, which was the most common response. Brian's "cabaret" look, bare-chested with black hat and suspenders, fared the best.

Alex's own black dress with studs got a "Cars-out," but at least Kressley was apologetic about it. "But you wear it well," he said. Still, out.

Carson Kressley on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'Former 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' star Carson Kressley is taking his fashion advice on the road for his new show, 'Carson Nation,' which premieres this month on OWN. He described the show Friday on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated), and also got props on his Twitter skills from guest host Kara DioGuardi, who said she personally hasn't figured out how to use the medium properly.

"I have a vintage Airstream and my own truck," Kressley said of the show, "and me and my assistant drive it across country, and we stop at all the towns that need our help, which is a lot." A clip from the show featured Kressley helping a woman with her "man jeans."

DioGuardi said she was glad that Kressley tweets, particularly a recent post in which Kressley included a photo of his "moobs," or man-boobs. "Oh, I know a guy who has those," DioGuardi said. "Simon Cowell."

Just when we were starting to grow weary of Wendy Williams' recurring first kiss segment on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Carson Kressley shows up and regales us with two separate first kiss stories -- one with a woman and one with a man.

"With a girl, it was probably in high school," Kressley said of his first kiss with a female, adding that he suspected he might be gay, but decided to kiss a girl to see if feelings developed. But, he said, "It didn't work."

Carson Kressley expands his Lifetime empire

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 11th 2008 4:39PM
Carson KressleyBefore Lifetime snagged Bravo's Project Runway, it got its hands on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star Carson Kressley. Lifetime tapped Kressley to host the feel-good show How to Look Good Naked, and now it looks like the cable net wants to keep the Kressley train moving by giving him his own talk show.

The standard Monday-Friday talk show format is rare on cable nets, but is in line with Lifetime's plan to change its image from the "woman being beaten, kidnapped, set on fire, but ultimately triumphing in the end" movies/Golden Girls network to something younger and hipper -- basically Bravo with a female slant. Kressley's chat fest is supposed to focus on his talent for fashion and will feature a mix of studio and field segments that feature him offering insight and advice to "everyday" people.

TV 101: Carson Kressley's new show (or "No, actually, you DON'T look good naked")

by Jay Black, posted Jan 3rd 2008 2:20PM
Is I write the introductions to my articles after I write the articles themselves. This is because I find the introductions the hardest part and, remembering the advice I got from the introduction to the S.A.T.s, when I run into a problem I can't easily solve, it's a good idea for me to go to the next question and return later.

This introduction, however, was easy to write. That's because my wife wrote it for me. She read the column and then turned to me and said, "Wow, you're gonna get crucified for this." I asked her, "Worse than my Simpsons essay?" She said, "The reaction to this will make the Simpsons essay look like a fawning Office review. I agree with it, and I'm sure a lot of other people will as well, but the ones that don't... Wow, they are just gonna hate you!" So, uh, thanks honey. Now, on to the crucifying...

Crowned gets a second season?

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 29th 2007 2:02PM
CrownedAs I was surfing the web this morning, I came upon a casting call for The CW's Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants. Even if this reality competition is not the best reality TV show on the block, it seems that The CW thinks it did good enough to potentially grant Crowned a second season. Then again, maybe the pageant show will get a second chance only because The CW is running out of new episodes for its scripted shows.

Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants -- An early look

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 10th 2007 11:23AM

CrownedIn the latest twist on reality competitions, The CW presents Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants, in which mothers and daughters compete as pairs for a top prize of $100,000. The show premieres Wednesday, December 12, 9/8c. Let me preface by saying that I have enjoyed such twisted programming as Joe Millionaire and The Swan, so was hopeful that I could find something to appreciate here. While it has potential, and I do have favorite contestants already, this first episode has some serious problems.

I can only hope that more editing will be done before the final cut makes it to air as there was a likely unintentional but glaringly racial imbalance in the introduction of the teams. Not to mention painfully obvious attempts to fake tension and drama where there really isn't any. Things might grow more intense as egos clash, but for now things are fairly bland. Even the first challenge was boring. They really needed to step it up to try and encourage viewers to stick around for the entire eight week run, and I don't think they did. More and minor spoilers after the jump.
