Kelly Ripa Humbly Requests That Derek Hough Never Wear a Shirt Again (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Dec 5th 2011 6:30PM
In her search for a new 'Live!' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) co-host, Kelly Ripa was coupled Monday with 'Dancing With the Stars' pro Derek Hough. Although Hough failed to take home the Mirror Ball Trophy this season for the first time in 'DWTS' tenure, he still had a pretty good year. 'People' named him one of their Sexiest Men Alive, and Kelly just so happened to have a copy of the magazine on hand.

In Hough's photo-spread, he's hanging shirtless from a steel beam with his pants looking like they're about to fall off. Kelly shook the magazine and did her best Regis impression, yelling, "C'mon! Everything is defying gravity, darn it!"

Nancy Grace didn't seem like she was in a dancing mood on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) but the ladies had other ideas. As the 'Dancing With the Stars' veteran worked through her list of excuses -- she didn't have the right shoes, there was no dancefloor, she needed music and her partner -- the 'Talk' ladies had an answer for every one of them. They brought Grace a pair of dancing shoes, cleared the studio floor, lowered a mirrored ball, and then Grace's 'DWTS' partner Tristan MacManus appeared from backstage.

Chaz Bono's Fiancee Horrified at Death Threats He's Received (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 28th 2011 4:30AM
'Being Chaz'This week's installment of 'Being Chaz' (Sun., 8PM ET on OWN) took us back to the fallout from the announcement that Chaz Bono would be joining this latest season of 'Dancing With the Stars.' His fiancée Jennifer Elia was shocked and horrified at some of the comments that came through Twitter.

It is amazing how much hatred some people can have in their hearts. Certainly, the Internet has made it easier for these people to spew some of the most horrific and terrifying bile toward others, and Bono received plenty, including threats of physical violence and death.

"I don't think its worth it to do this show if he's gonna get shot," Elia said. "I don't want him to die for a cause."

Will Chynna Doing 'DWTS' Derail Album on 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On'? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 28th 2011 2:00AM
Chynna Phillips, 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On'Wilson Phillips is one of the biggest musical acts of all time, so it's a big deal that they've decided to reunite for an album. 'Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On' (Sun., 9PM ET on TV Guide) is set to chronicle the creation of that album, but right away it hit a major hurdle when Chynna Phillips had to tell bandmates Carnie and Wendy Wilson that she'd agreed to be on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

She was surprised that they weren't as supportive of this "huge opportunity" for her. Carnie was concerned about the album they'd committed to do, while Wendy couldn't seem to get her jaw hinge to work. It was certainly a huge blow, but it might have gone over easier had Chynna told them that this was a huge opportunity for all of them.

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 23rd 2011 5:20PM
Chaz Bono dropped by 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated on Fox) to talk to his fellow 'Dancing With The Stars' alum about his upcoming OWN special, 'Being Chaz,' a follow-up to OWN's Emmy nominated special 'Becoming Chaz.' Bono said they "started shooting it a few weeks before 'Dancing With The Stars' and filmed it the whole way through ... It's got a lot of drama and a lot of behind-the- scenes of 'Dancing With The Stars.'"

When Chaz came on in May to talk about 'Becoming Chaz,' he mentioned that he wasn't comfortable with the procedures available for transgender female-to-male genital reassignment surgery, but told Wendy today that, "There's a procedure that I'll probably do ... when I get some time off."

Everyone else, read on ... It was all smiles backstage last night as the three finalists and their pro dance partners walked the post-show press line. We've all heard the stories of award-winners keeping their trophies in the bathroom or in a dark cupboard, but where does the new 'DWTS' champ plan to keep his/her coveted Mirror Ball trophy?

"Right now I'm going to put mine in bed. I'm going to tuck it in, and it's going to roll around with me. And then after that, once we've kind of grown apart, I'm going to glue it to the hood of my car and drive around ... and honk my horn and it will be my own parade."

'Dancing With the Stars' Leader Rob Kardashian Says 'I Really Want That Trophy'

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 22nd 2011 6:20AM
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl BurkeWho'd have thought in Week One that the least-known member of the Kardashian clan would be in poll position going into tonight's 'Dancing With the Stars' finale? Yet last night Rob Kardashian and partner Cheryl Burke scored their first perfect 30 for their freestyle dance, which helped put them ahead of fellow finalists Ricki Lake and J.R. Martinez.

Speaking to reporters on the post-show press line last night Rob and Cheryl were elated with their performance, with Rob telling E! Online that their success is due to his increased confidence. "I gained confidence as the weeks went on and took it a little more seriously. I still have fun with it," he said, but "something clicked and I really want that trophy. I really realized it's possible."

Ricki Lake and Derek Hough joked that they've already bought their own Mirror Ball trophy just in case they lose out tonight. "There's a store down the street that makes mirror ball trophies for fifteen bucks," he laughed, "so I've already got that made just in case."

Will Maksim Chmerkovskiy Perform on the 'Dancing With the Stars' Finale?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 21st 2011 7:20AM
This season of 'Dancing With the Stars' has had more than the usual amount of controversy, and a lot of it has come courtesy of clearly exasperated pro dancer -- and resident bad boy -- Maksim Chmerkovskiy. He's seemed dangerously close to boiling point all season and last week capped off an on-air altercation with judge Carrie Ann Inaba by dropping the f-bomb when talking about her to reporters.

Although Maks and partner Hope Solo's bad-tempered and uneven run on the show has come to an end, they're still due to perform on Tuesday night's live finale when each of this season's 12 couples returns to the dance floor for a special performance. But will they show up? After their elimination Maks and Hope were conspicuously absent from the post-show press lineup, and he rattled fans by writing in his blog: "What's next for me? I have no immediate plans at the moment. I'm not even sure if we're going to be at the finale!"

ABC Announces 2012 Midseason Schedule; 'Cougar Town' MIA

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 18th 2011 6:15PM
ABC has announced its 2012 midseason schedule, and one wine-soaked comedy is curiously missing from the list. 'Cougar Town,' despite a planned cameo offensive, is nowhere to be found. However, an ABC source has told TV Line that it will be back "sometime in the spring."

Also missing: 'Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23,' the new comedy that was set to be paired with 'Cougar Town.' The only new comedy to get a premiere date is 'Work It,' the network's cross-dressing sitcom that's already been critically panned.

'DWTS' S13 semi-finals eliminationThis season of 'Dancing With the Stars' has its share of controversy. We've had Nipplegate, injuries, accusations of nepotism, dancers feuding with judges, dancers feuding with each other ... Now it's been reported that the strain of last night's semi-finals elimination all proved to be just too much for one dancer.

Each week the dancers go backstage and chat to reporters on the post-show press line, but last night one couple was conspicuously absent. According to E! Online, one half of the eliminated couple "was so upset about [their] elimination from the competition that she was unable to hold it together for interviews."

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

'Dancing With the Stars' Semi-Finals and Week 9 Elimination (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 16th 2011 12:00AM
'Dancing With the Stars' eliminationThe most bittersweet elimination of the season took place on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). To come one week shy of the finale is absolutely brutal, but each of the remaining contestants was all smiles. Simply making it this far is quite an achievement, and all four have proven themselves talented and worthy of their place.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

This week Hope Solo struggled the most with the judges, but J.R. Martinez wasn't so far ahead on points that a surge of public support couldn't save her. Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake were probably feeling pretty safe, but we've seen bigger surprises in the past.

He also said that it was the hardest job on television, except maybe for 'Survivor.' "Nobody can imagine how difficult it is," he said. "The stress of getting on live television in front of 17 million viewers."

Florence Henderson, 'The Rosie Show'Florence Henderson spent five weeks as a hoofer on 'Dancing With the Stars,' an experience she equated to her time on Broadway on 'The Rosie Show' (Weeknights, 7PM ET on OWN). It's a lot of hard work, and when the curtain goes up you either soar or you fall, but either way it's live.

"When they first asked you, did you say yes right away?" Rosie O'Donnell asked her.

Henderson admitted to being a huge fan of the show already by that point. "I was in the audience often," she said. "When they asked me ... I said, 'Oh yeah, thank you!'"
