by Michael Maloney, posted Nov 3rd 2010 1:10PM

Rick Fox and Cheryl BurkeFor the second week in a row (third if you thought Florence Henderson was robbed, which -- let's face it, she was), there's been another shocking elimination on 'Dancing With the Stars.'

Former pro basketball star Rick Fox and partner Cheryl Burke were sent home despite having higher scores (61) than other "in jeopardy" duos actor Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer (59) and teen activist Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas (57.)

"This is the most shocking elimination I've had in 10 seasons," Burke said after the show. "It shows you that nobody's safe and you have to vote. Rick did the best he could. It was our best night. Better to go out on top."

Rick Fox Talks 'Dancing' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'Despite having just achieved his best scores yet (including a 10), Rick Fox was the surprise elimination from week 7 of 'Dancing With the Stars.' The former pro basketball player and partner Cheryl Burke talked about the experience on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC).

After Jimmy Kimmel chided him for crying on national television, the host noted, "You said that this is harder than Game 7 of an NBA final? ... First of all, I don't think you've been in a Game 7, right?"

Right. Technically, Fox has only gotten as far as the Western Conference finals. But "I prepared for that," he explained. Concerning 'Dancing,' "I had no previous dance experience ... You don't know how to dance, and you have to learn it really quickly and perform it in front of America four days later."

Kimmel then chatted with Burke about dancing with the "freakishly tall" (6-foot-7) Fox.

Rick Fox Talks About His 'Dancing With the Stars' MustacheThis week on 'Dancing With the Stars,' Rick Fox danced the tango with partner Cheryl Burke ... while sporting a mustache. Oddly, Fox didn't have a mustache the week before, and he didn't have one the next day. So where did it come from?

On 'The Tonight Show' (11:35PM ET on NBC), Fox explained everything. He also tried on a new fake mustache, one he claimed was made from his chest hair. But before we get to the fake one, what was the deal with the 'DWTS' one?

On the Scene: Will Florence Henderson Dance to the 'Brady Bunch' Theme on 'DWTS'?

by Michael Maloney, posted Oct 12th 2010 1:00PM
Florence Henderson on 'Dancing With the Stars'More about this week's performance show of 'Dancing With the Stars' in a bit, but here's a great reason to already get excited about next week's performances: The stars and their dancing pro partners will be performing routines to hit TV show theme songs.

A few couples revealed what song they'll be dancing to on the post-show press line, but it's up in the air if the most natural choice, Florence Henderson and Corky Ballas twirling to the theme song from 'The Brady Bunch,' is going to happen. First, the duo has to survive tonight's elimination show. Second, the song needs to go through certain legal clearances so it can be used on the show.

Henderson told TV Squad, "We're hoping [we dance to 'The Brady Bunch' theme]. I can't imagine that they would not [clear it.]" Of course, as her partner, Ballas, pointed out, "But first, we have to get saved."

Michael Bolton: 'Dancing With the Stars' Judge Should Apologize (VIDEO)

by Michael Maloney, posted Sep 29th 2010 2:00PM
Michael BoltonIt didn't come as a big surprise that Michael Bolton got the boot on 'Dancing With the Stars' last night. The singer and his dance partner Chelsie Hightower scored a mere 12 points doing a jive on Monday night.

Host Tom Bergeron gave judge Bruno Tonioli an opportunity to amend, apologize for or even retract the harsh comment he gave Bolton on Monday's show (he called their jive "the worst ... in 11 seasons"). Instead, Tonioli held his ground.

Bolton called the judge's remarks "inappropriate" and "disrespectful."

On 'Good Morning America,' Bolton demanded an apology from Tonioli. "You heard the tone. Even Len [Goodman] stopped him and said, 'That's inappropriate,'" he said. "I think he should apologize publicly and be reprimanded for it."

Dancing With the Stars Cast
The first night jitters are officially out of the way. Twelve stars and their celebrity pro partners took to the dance floor and performed either a Cha-Cha or a Viennese Waltz on the 'Dancing With the Stars' season 11 opening night show. Actress Jennifer Grey, singer Brandy Norwood and athletes Rick Fox and Kurt Warner performed well -- as expected -- but the surprise of the night was teen actor Kyle Massey, who brought to mind a young Warren Sapp (Kym Johnson's season 7 partner) when he performed a dynamite dance with Lacey Schwimmer.

TV Squad was on the post-show press line to get reactions from all 24 participants. For one unlucky couple, alas, it's their second-to-last interview, because tonight one duo is going home.

'Dancing with the Stars' - 'Performance #8: Results' Recap

by Michael Pascua, posted May 19th 2010 1:00AM
Melissa Rycroft and Joey Fatone's Tango(S10E17) There have been 99 eliminations on 'Dancing with the Stars' and tonight's elimination brings the 100th. Somehow the mixed amount of contestants in all the seasons left the most poignant elimination in the 10th season. Len's recap reminds us that we have the best semi-final ever. Quickly afterward, Evan & Anna are the first couple in the finals.

Purdue beat UC San Diego last week, even with lower scores. Our last two formation teams Rutgers and Utah Valley faced off to see who will take on Purdue.

Encore - Evan & Anna's Paso Doble - One of the best pluses of the performance was the fact that Evan benefited from a Paso cape solo. He had the best solo section because of the passion he had in the dance. He gets a standing ovation again.
