Petra Nemcova Recalls Run on 'DWTS'On 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC), supermodel Petra Nemcova and professional dance partner Dmitry Chaplin recalled their run on 'Dancing With the Stars.' Nemcova and Chaplin became the fourth couple eliminated from 'DWTS' after their performance of a quickstep earlier in the week.

Nemcova made it further in the dance competition than any supermodel before her, and said she owes her success to Chaplin's teachings.

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Petra Leaves the Show Happy; Kirstie Says Maks Is 'Sex on a Stick'

'Dancing With the Stars' -- the hottest show on TV -- just got a little less hot. Supermodel Petra Nemcova and her equally attractive pro dance partner Dmitry Chaplin were voted off the dance competition reality series last night.

The ousting proves that this season of the show is the most unpredictable. Nemcova recently topped the leader board, but after slipping to a three-way tie for last place this week she became vulnerable. After failing to gain enough votes to remain in the game, she and Chaplin learned their time on the show had come to an end.

Traditionally, models haven't fared well on 'DWTS.' Albert Reed was voted off early in season 5. Joanna Krupa, who arguably should have won season 9, was cut during the semifinals. Nemcova proved she's just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside, however, in her post-show interview in which she and Chaplin reflected on their time on the show and the duo's plans for the future.

If there's a sliver lining to their exit it's that they're not likely to find any embarrassing rehearsal footage of themselves in future video packages in the way Chelsie Hightower, Hines Ward and Maksim Chmerkovskiy did on Tuesday's results show.

'Dancing With the Stars' Results: Who Is the Eliminated Contestant? (VIDEO)

Petra Nemcova, 'Dancing with the Stars'Another Tuesday means another elimination on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). But with each consecutive week, it's getting more challenging to determine which dancer deserves to go the most, and more difficult to say goodbye to the ones leaving us.

This week was a tough one, as one of the early front-runners continued to struggle and even tied for the lowest judges' marks of the week. But it was a three-way tie between Ralph Macchio, Petra Nemcova and Kendra Wilkinson. With 22 points for each of them, Kirstie Alley was only one point higher, which meant that the popular vote from America was more important than ever.

Would Kendra finally pay for getting consistently lower marks, or would America turn on Kirstie just as she achieved an error-free performance? Both Petra and Ralph have had the highest marks in previous weeks. Would that be enough to get them a pass?

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Maks and Kirstie on Their Week Three Fall

Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy"Personal story" night always yields some heartfelt moments on 'Dancing With the Stars' and last night's installment of that theme was no exception as several stars cut open some veins, revealing stories of deep personal loss. They then incorporated those stories into their dances.

The decisions that the stars and dancers made yielded some interesting results: Hines Ward and Petra Nemcova tied for first place, taking the top position from previous front-runner Ralph Macchio.

But the most dramatic moment of last night's performance was when Maksim Chmerkovskiy suffered a spasm in his thigh, which sent him and partner Kirstie Alley to the dance floor, shortly after they began their dance.

The Ukrainian-born ballroom bad boy and comedic actress extraordinaire quickly composed themselves, however, and resumed their rumba to 'Over the Rainbow,' earning applause from the audience and classy comments from the judges, who praised them for their inspiring comeback.

After the show, the stars and their pro dance partners reflected on the highs and lows of the evening. TV Squad was on the scene to get the scoop.

Will Mike Catherwood Go From 'Dancing With the Stars' to 'The Bachelor'?

by Michael Maloney, posted Mar 30th 2011 11:30AM
Lacey Schwimmer and Mike CatherwoodIt wasn't too shocking that 'Psycho' Mike Catherwood, a Los Angeles–based disc jockey, was the first celebrity sent packing last night on season 12 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' After all, he earned the lowest combined score after two dances.

His pro partner, Lacey Schwimmer, who went all the way to the finals last season, now finds herself as the first dancer to exit the show. On the plus side, the dancer/singer got to meet Britney Spears last night since she was a guest on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' (Ejected stars and dancers are invited to appear on the late-night talk show the night that they're voted off the program.)

Before the couple headed to Hollywood to appear on Kimmel's show, they chatted with TV Squad on the post-show press line to talk about their 'DWTS' experience and plans for the future -- specifically, would Catherwood be the new 'Bachelor' on ABC?

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Week Two Elimination Nerves

by Michael Maloney, posted Mar 29th 2011 9:00AM
He may have the best smile, but Mike Catherwood is also the least-known star on season 12 of 'Dancing With the Stars', and his combined score of 30 after two weeks of dancing is the lowest. Can the Los Angeles disc jockey and his partner Lacey Schwimmer evade tonight's elimination on 'DWTS'?

"I have the lowest fan base and lowest score," Catherwood told TV Squad on the post-show press line last night. "If anything keeps us on the show beyond this week we'll have to do things differently. It can't be just, 'Oh, I'll try harder.' We'll have to go back to the drawing board and break it down."

If Catherwood manages to avoid being sent home during tonight's elimination show he'll have Schwimmer to thank. She brings her own fan following, not just from 'DWTS,' but also from 'So You Think You Can Dance' on which she appeared from 2007–08.

Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Week One Was 'Terrifying'

Karina Smirnoff and Ralph MacchioRalph Macchio, 49, and Kirstie Alley, 60, are two of the older contestants on season 12 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' but after the first night of dancing they took early leads with top scores of, respectively, 24 and 23.

The star of 'The Karate Kid' and his pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, performed a Foxtrot that judge Len Goodman called the best one of the night.

Macchio's an actor; did that play a role in how successfully he embraced his part on the dance floor?

"Yes. Dancing is like acting only you use your body," said Smirnoff. "It allows him tap into the character so much better."

"[Acting] is less painful," joked Macchio. "Less painful."

Mya and Dmitry's Salsa Earns 2nd Perfect Score on 'Dancing with the Stars' (VIDEO)

R&B singer Mya and partner Dmitry Chaplin turned in a spicy rendition of the salsa on 'Dancing with the Stars' that earned them a perfect score, making this the second consecutive week the duo earned top marks for a dance number.

But for judge Len Goodman, the highlight of their performance was less about footwork, and more about a certain part of Mya's anatomy. "I've got to say, tutti frutti, what a booty," Goodman said. "I was mesmerized by your buttocks. I couldn't stop looking at them."
