After hearing from Tom Bergeron that she and partner Rick Fox were in jeopardy on 'Dancing With the Stars,' elimination show, she immediately jumped up and down and hugged him. "You're in jeopardy," Bergeron repeated, until she realized she'd made a mistake.
Burke and Fox weren't among the bottom four scorers, but were they sent packing in Tuesday night's elimination? Or are they going to strut their stuff next week in either the Argentine tango or rumba?
Keep reading to find out which team has danced their last dance for the season.
The stars and dancers think so, but not because Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli were trying to make up for being extremely harsh on Michael Bolton last week. (Bolton was ejected after dancing a disappointing jive that Bruno called the worst in 11 seasons of 'DWTS.')
"Last week some of the comments were definitely harsh," said Anna Trebunskaya. "This week everyone got scared of those comments so they worked really hard and we had a great show as a result. We [all] did our absolute best."
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.
While recording comedy songs for her latest album ('Cho Dependent'), the comedienne recruited the 'American Idol' vocal coach. Now she knows all the 'Idol' contestants' tricks.
"Before I sing I have to do a shot of olive oil ... It's making me shoot olive oil out [she gestured to her backside] in a fine mist." She should probably abandon that aspect of her vocal regimen before embarking on season 11 of 'Dancing with the Stars.'
The newest cast of 'Dancing With The Stars' got their feet wet last night after the line-up was unveiled by hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke.
Ten out of the show's dozen stars did their first round of publicity to tout their participation in the top-rated dance-competition series. (Singer Michael Bolton and reality TV star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino were unable to attend.) AOL's TV Squad was on the scene to get the celebs' reactions.
"My agent called me and asked me if I'd be interested in doing the show," said reailty TV star Audrina Partridge of 'The Hills.' "And I said, 'Yes!' I'm really excited to meet Jennifer Grey. I'm a big 'Dirty Dancing' fan."
"I just, um, couldn't get high anymore," the comedienne explained. "All that happens is you can see your eyelashes."
And it was the strong medical-marijuana stuff, too -- "Heaven's Gate weed" Cho called it. "Just put on your Nikes and wait for the spaceship." She tried a marijuana lollipop too, to no avail.
When Cho was on 'All-American Girl' back in 1994, one of the show's writers "really broke my heart. He was the first person that I ever loved," said Cho. "For 17 years I was in love with him, and I never thought to look him up because I was sure he was married and had kids and was living in a lighthouse or something."
After turning 40, Cho Googled him and discovered a very different biography. Let's just say she's lucky they never hooked up. And the truth helps explain why a murderous Cho is traipsing around with her dead lover in the song's music video.
(S05E17) "What is happening to me?" - Damon
What's happening to you, Damon? You are the haunted character of the week that Melinda and company try to help. Same old, same old. This week's installment of 'Ghost Whisperer' was pretty much a filler episode that didn't offer character or show mythology development. I know, I know, not every single episode can move the year's main storylines along.
Luckily, the culprit of the week was not that easy to pinpoint and the comic book theme was pretty cool, especially when the last shot before each commercial was comic-book panel style. Sadly, these cool tidbits were overshadowed by a really badly done fantasy sequence.
(S05E14) "Who died and made you the expert?" - Avery to Melinda
This last new episode of 'Ghost Whisperer' before the Olympics hiatus (even though CBS is not airing the Olympics) not only offered us funny girl Margaret Cho as Ned's Occult Anthropology professor, who didn't believe in what she was teaching, but also pushed the dark side of the show's mythology thanks to an object Melinda and company don't like at all: a Ouija board.
Even with the introduction of the mysterious Ouija board, the episode didn't offer much new info about how the good and dark sides work, but it was interesting to see Cho's character, Professor Avery Grant, cope with the fact that was she was teaching actually had some truth to it. However, the most intriguing scene was the final one when the Ouija board confirmed something Melinda didn't want to be true...
In the new Lifetime series 'Drop Dead Diva' (premieres Sunday, July 12), Cho plays the sidekick to a recently deceased model trapped in an overweight brainiac's body.

If you were talking high concept like a Hollywood pitchman, you could describe Drop Dead Diva as Ally McBeal for the Lane Bryant set. Or maybe it's Sara Lee meets Heaven Can Wait. However, you put it, Drop Dead Diva is a switcheroo story about a vapid, but lovable, gorgeous size 2 model who dies at the exact same time as a brilliant, generous size 16 workaholic attorney, and in one of those wonderful Hollywood comedy devices, shallow Deb's spirit winds up in good Jane's body.
Rick and Steve are a gay couple, and they're animated. I don't mean they're lively, I mean they're the stars of a new animated series for Logo called Rick and Steve. The series, which begins July 10 at 10:00 p.m., features voice work by Alan Cumming, Margaret Cho, Wilson Cruz and Peter Paige. The music for the series is composed by the same folks who wrote the music for Avenue Q.
The characters in Rick and Steve resemble tiny posable toys, which makes the show look like something created for the Nick Jr. set. Of course, the themes are just a tad more adult than that, or so I gathered by watching the trailer.
PBS affiliates around the country are debuting the series My Life...Disoriented, a Degrassi-style high school drama about sisters Kimberlee and Aimee Fung. The girls' lives are turned upside down when they move from San Francisco to a largely white neighborhood in Bakersfield, California. The show was created by Five Dollar Martini Productions - a partnership which includes three Asian-American women including actress Di Quon.
