Pam Anderson Talks 'Dancing' and Apolo's "Top Heavy" Comment (VIDEO)

Pam Anderson Talks 'Dancing' on 'Tonight Show'In discussing her experience (so far) on 'Dancing with the Stars,' Pamela Anderson proved she can joke about her, er, assets, too.

"Everyone was telling me, 'Oh, don't do 'Dancing with the Stars''.... But I said I absolutely have to do it," she told Jay Leno on the 'Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

As one clearly not afraid of inciting conflict, Jay then showed her a clip of Apolo Anton Ohno's visit to 'Tonight' on March 3, in which Jay asked the former winner of 'Dancing' for his predictions on this season's champion.

Apolo responded at the time, "Well, Pamela Anderson -- she's a little top heavy."

Check out her response.

NBC Plans 835 Hours of Olympics Coverage

by Jane Murphy, posted Jan 14th 2010 4:18PM
The Vancouver Olympics is not just NBC's upcoming hiatus from the Leno vs. Conan late-night wars. It's actually, you know, the Olympics, that edge-of-your seat showcase for quadrennial favorites like short track skater (and occasional fox trotter) Apolo Anton Ohno, and a launching pad for new American sweethearts (Minnesotan Lindsey Vonn is a downhill favorite) .

Nearly every network of the NBC empire (with the notable exception of Bravo) will air Olympic events. It will add up to more than 825 hours of triple axels and double-takes (will German pairs contenders Savchenko & Szolkowy really skate to "Send in the Clowns" -- in clown make-up?!) According to the Hollywood Reporter, this is the greatest number of Winter Games broadcast hours ever offered.

Our 'Dancing With the Stars' All-Stars Wish List

by David Hofstede, posted Dec 3rd 2009 8:32PM
Mario Lopez'Dancing With the Stars' returns to ABC next spring for season 10 -- a nice round number, which gives the show the ideal opportunity to launch an all-star tournament of champions. If they decide to do so, here are the hip-shaking, samba-rolling celebrities we'd most like to see return to the ballroom.

Seven people we'd like to see on Dancing With The Stars - VIDEO

by Eliot Glazer, posted Feb 9th 2009 9:11AM
Jackie StalloneWell, it's official. Yesterday, ABC announced their new line-up for the eighth season (!) of Dancing With The Stars. And, as usual, the names chosen range from weird to ... even weirder (really, David Alan Grier?). Not that we necessarily disagree with the producers' choices, but we'd like to take a moment to suggest seven potential choices of people we believe to be fully primed for a spot on the dance floor.

Listen up, DWTS producers. Season nine is just around the corner, and Alan Alda is probably waiting by the phone. (...In our wildest dreams, that is.)

Dancing With The Stars: Week 9 Results

by Erin Martell, posted May 16th 2007 1:20AM

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson

(S04E17) This week's elimination wasn't exactly shocking, but there was a lot of suspense leading up to the final announcement. There was also a ton of filler, and not the entertaining Kenny Mayne-style filler. In the recap of Monday's performances, we learned that Julianne snorts when she laughs, which only makes her more adorable.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 9

by Erin Martell, posted May 15th 2007 12:02AM

Ian Ziering(S04E16) We've reached the (thankfully) Cyrus-free semifinals, and it looks like tomorrow's elimination will be a nail-biter. There was absolutely no dead weight on the dance floor, a fact that made for an exciting evening of performances. There were perfect scores, pelvic thrusts, and the phrase "Yours is bigger." What's not to like?

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Quickstep) - This week the contestants got to pick their favorite Ballroom and Latin dance styles. For the Ballroom round, Apolo and Julianne chose the Quickstep. Revealing his competitive spirit, Apolo set quite a few goals for himself. He wanted tens for his Ballroom round, and he wanted perfect scores for both dances.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 8

Billy Ray Cyrus, Karina Smirnoff
(S04E14)
Which one of these doesn't belong? As is par for the course on Dancing With The Stars, somebody always gets through on the power of the fan vote, surpassing contestants that are superior dancers. This year, that somebody is Billy Ray Cyrus. We could argue all day about whether or not Billy Ray should still be on the show, but one thing is for sure, while he is here, he makes things interesting. Read on to hear about the latest dustup.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 7 Results

by Erin Martell, posted May 1st 2007 11:56PM

Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy(S04E13) This week's elimination wasn't exactly surprising, but the entertainment value of the results show made up for it. I wish that ABC had made DanceCenter a regular part of the elimination episodes instead of the Jimmy Kimmel segments. Nothing against Guillermo, but Kenny Mayne grilling Len Goodman is just good TV.

The judges chose the encore performance by a coin toss, but they would have picked a winner either way. Laila and Maksim won out over Joey and Kym, and their Samba was as hot as ever. I initially thought the judges were going to let both couples perform, since the results shows are normally so padded. This week, however, there were some amazing and hilarious segments.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 7

Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy(S04E12) Laila Ali is the only woman left in the competition, but I have a feeling that she'll make us proud. Samantha was under the impression that tonight's show "defines the season." I'm assuming that she was referring to the contestants having to learn two dances, but who knows? Len warned the contestants that the expectations were higher for the Ballroom and Latin rounds, and hoped that they would rise to the occasion. Did they? Let's find out!

Dancing With The Stars: Week 5 Results

by Erin Martell, posted Apr 17th 2007 11:30PM

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough(S04E09) After three weeks of watching women get sent home, it was about time that a male contestant got the boot. Samantha mentioned that the show has reached its midpoint, and it is time to get rid of the lackluster dancers and focus on the real contenders. I have a feeling that the next few eliminations will be as predictable as this week's.

As many fans guessed, the judges chose Apolo and Julianne for the encore performance this evening. The couple's Samba was called the dance of the season. No arguments here. Apolo and Julianne's performance was just as exciting and sexy as it was last night, and it was great to see it again.

Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba

(S04E08) Leeza Gibbons is gone, which means that there are only two women left to compete. After some of the men's performances tonight, I doubt that Laila and Heather are worried. There was an informal "muscle shirt" theme this evening, and the men's attempts at fun and sexy had mixed results.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 3 results

by Erin Martell, posted Apr 3rd 2007 11:20PM

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson(S04E05) Another week, another "shocking" elimination. The hosts were all about hyping the "jam-packed" results show, bragging that there was more music and dancing "than ever before." What else would there be on a dancing show? An ad for a workout DVD? Oh, wait, I'm getting ahead of myself.

The behind-the-scenes interviews were combined with recap footage from last night's performances. A big deal was made of the unprecedented four-way tie. Joey Fatone was offended by Len's butt comment, and stuck out his rear (and his visible panty line) in protest during his interview. Heather wanted to advance even farther than Jonathan's previous two-legged partners. I'm still hoping that Heather's dancing talents will start to overshadow her disability. It was a valid topic in the first few episodes, but enough is enough.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 3

by Erin Martell, posted Apr 2nd 2007 11:34PM

Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris(S04E04) We're back for another week of dancing, and the lovely Paulina is no longer with us. Many of the dances were inspired by movies this week; we had Star Wars, Pulp Fiction, and even Goldfinger. Contestants danced either the Jive or the Tango, and the results were very entertaining.

Shandi Finnessey and Brian Fortuna (Jive) - Shandi and Brian's Jive was good, but forgettable after all of the performances were finished. Their performance was fun and spirited, and Shandi wisely showed as much skin as possible. She can't compete with the other contestants' technical skills, but she's doing her best to corner the market on hotness. The judges were impressed with her progress and gave the couple a 21 (7, 7, 7).

Dancing with the Stars: Week 1 (season premiere)

by Erin Martell, posted Mar 19th 2007 11:57PM

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson(S04E01) Another season of Dancing With The Stars is upon us, and I could not be more excited. Some important changes have been made this time around. Contestants were given four weeks to practice for the premiere instead of six, and there will be two weeks of dancing before the first elimination. The premiere was entertaining and surprising, as always. Let's get right to it!

Ian Ziering and Cheryl Burke (Cha Cha Cha) - It's tough to be the first dancers of the night, but Ian and Cheryl did a tremendous job. Their energetic performance included some decent footwork; those two definitely know how to have fun and work the crowd. Cheryl's hair was gorgeous, as usual, but I wasn't a fan of the Ziering facial hair. The judges gave Ian some technical criticism, but the pair walked away with a fair score of 21 (Carrie: 7, Len: 7, Bruno: 7).
