Erin Andrews Fights with 'Dancing with the Stars' Partner Maskin ChmerkovskiyOn the latest episode of 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Erin Andrews talked about some problems that she's been having with her 'Dancing With the Stars' partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. First, there's the small issue of his accent. While talking about their dancing training, Andrews said, "And you're all flustered ... and he's like 'Give me your hand.' And I'm like, 'Here!' And he's like 'Your hand!' And I'm like, 'Here!' ... And he's like 'Your head!'" "How am I supposed to know," Erin said to Chmerkovskiy, "between your accent or not?" We can see how that could be a problem.

But then Chmerkovskiy rebuts Andrews. "She's doing an impersonation of a Frenchman. I don't speak like [that]." And on top of that, she thinks he's from Russia when he's really from the Ukraine. "You're giving me geography lessons, [now]," Andrews said.

Ah, dancing. It is difficult. But we still feel the unspoken love flowing between the partners. Check out the full video to see the love/hate dynamic in action.

Misty May-Treanor Tells All About Her 'Dancing' Exit

by Raven Snook, posted Oct 7th 2008 10:40AM
Misty May-Treanor"This is just one of those things that you have to be patient with ... you can't try to move too fast, but I feel I'm going to be OK."

By now, pretty much everyone has heard the news: Misty May-Treanor, who had been one of season 7's front runners, had to stop 'Dancing' prematurely due to injury. The Gold volleyball medalist tried to be upbeat as she hobbled on stage on crutches, her left foot shrouded in bandages. During rehearsal, Misty had stepped back and felt a pop. The doctor diagnosed it as a ruptured Achilles tendon.

"Ballroom dancing is a sport," Misty explained backstage after appearing on Monday night's show. "It's rigorous activity. This could have happened anywhere."

Even though she won't be able to dance for at least six months, the champion athlete hopes to return to 'Dancing' another season with her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "Maks is devastated because he knows how much hard work we put into this," she said. "He knew the dancer that I could become. I want to thank all the people who voted for us. Don't count me out. I want to come back. And I will be back."

Misty's sudden departure meant that no one was kicked off this week. However, Rocco DiSpirito and Karina Smirnoff were informed that they had the fewest votes. That means they'll have to hustle if they want to avoid elimination next week. Although Rocco was grateful for the second chance, he said he's "counting on our fans to mobilize."

Rocco's fellow competitors are glad he's sticking around. "I think this will get Rocco to work harder next week," said Maurice Greene, while Lacey Schwimmer insisted that "Rocco and Karina will kick butt next week. You're going to see fire in their eyes."

Read on for more of AOL TV's candid chat with Misty and the rest of the 'Dancing With the Stars' cast.

ABC announces new cast of Dancing With the Stars

Dancing with the starsDancing With the Stars is a show that makes no sense to me. I understand the appeal of it; I'm usually very interested in any program that involves celebrities doing ridiculous things on national television and I know that people love bright shiny costumes, but it still somehow manages to hold no interest for me whatsoever.

With that said, I know that the announcement of each season's DWTS cast is heavily anticipated and rumored for months before the actual announcement. We heard that Dan Marino may be a contestant; a claim that was soon denied. 82-year-old Cloris Leachman was another name floated, as was Magnum, P.I. himself, Tom Selleck. Kim Kardashian and Kathy Griffin were also said to have been approached.

As with most rumors, some of these turned out to be false, but others had some truth to them. Follow me after the jump for the official (and completely insane) cast of Dancing With the Stars' seventh season, along with some twists the producers have cooked up for this go-around.

Dancing With The Stars - The Judges
(S06E16) It was a big night down at DWTS HQ. Not only would the field be set for the big semi-final showdown next week, it was also the show's 100th episode. That milestone meant that many of our favorites from seasons gone by were making their return to the ballroom. In addition, ABC recognized that nothing else they were going to put on tonight was going to measure up to DWTS numbers, so they kicked the whole thing off with a clip-show counting down the judge's ten favorite performances from the first five seasons. That list, and the rest of the results show goings on, after the jump.
