Elisabetta Canalis was the second contestant voted off 'Dancing With the Stars,' but the Italian actress is still in good spirits. On 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) she reflected on the 'Dancing' experience and thanked her ex-boyfriend George Clooney for standing up for her against a false tabloid report.

"Dancing may not be the best thing I can do in my life, but I had this great opportunity to go to 'Dancing With the Stars,' and I had a great experience, so I can't ask anything more," she said.

Lacey Schwimmer & Chaz Bono'It's only the second week of the competition, and we may have our first surprise elimination on 'Dancing With the Stars' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC). Though it may also be revealing an interesting, but perhaps not unexpected, bias playing out this season.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Last week, viewer votes lined up easily with judges scoring in eliminating Ron Artest and new professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd. This week, though, America didn't agree with the judges. In fact, the eliminated dancer had one of the higher scores of the night.

Is the Rivalry Between Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy on 'Dancing With the Stars' Real?

by Michael Maloney, posted Sep 20th 2011 8:00AM
Maks and Val ChmerkovskiyForget about rivalries between celebrities on this season of 'Dancing With the Stars' -- there's definitely a sense of competition between Maksim Chmerkovskiy and his kid brother Val, who's one of the show's new pro dancers.

Val showed that the gloves (or rather the shirts) are off when he made his entrance on last night's premiere by descending the stairs bare-chested.

Prior to dancing the cha-cha with his celebrity partner, model/TV host Elisabetta Canalis, Val said that he'd given his brother ten seasons to win the mirrorball trophy, but that since he hasn't taken it home, well, Val was just going to have to do it himself. (Ouch!)

Is this just some brotherly banter to rile up the audience or is Val trying to dethrone Maks as the "bad boy of the ballroom?"

'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 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!"

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."
