Backstage at Dancing With the Stars: Anger on the Dance Floor

The stars weren't the only ones battling it out on the Dancing With the Stars dance floor Monday night. Pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy went after judge Carrie Ann Inaba on the air, fighting back verbally after Inaba dissed the slow opening to his "instant dance" cha cha choreography with Brandy. But backstage after the show, long-time choreographer and dancer teacher Buddy Schwimmer, father of pro Lacey Schwimmer, went after Maks. "I would've thrown him off the show," said Schwimmer. "You don't do that to a judge. It's very unprofessional. Afterwards, if you want to say something, that's one thing. But not on the air, when all you're trying to do is make them look bad. If someone did that to me, I would kick them out of the studio." To Read More Click Here.

Dancing With the Stars' Crazy Costume Watch: Which couple wore it better?

Remember when Lacey Schwimmer and Kyle Massey attempted to re-imagine Scary Spice and Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s “Pleather Power” paso doble from season 5? Of course you don’t — it was a whole week ago. (Also acceptable: “No; who are those people?”) We’ve pitted the season 11 contestants against their “inspirations” from seasons of yore. Be sure to click through today’s ‘DWTS’: Which team wore it better? photo gallery and vote for the couples who embodied the spirit of the sequin in a more believable/ridiculous way. FREE YOUR MIND and rock the vote! My favorite battle is Pink Comet in the Glitz Galaxy (Kelly Osbourne) vs. Peaches ‘N’ Cream Barbie (Bristol Palin), but I also like Banana Man vs. Jolly Green Giant and Chocolate Ganache vs. Red Velvet Cake. Maybe I just wanted to type those food words again. Source Here

What's Behind Dancing With the Stars' Shocking Eliminations?

When Audrina Patridge was booted from ABC's Dancing With the Stars on October 26, head judge Len Goodman called it "ludicrous." One week later, former L.A. Laker Rick Fox shared her fate, while the judges looked on in disbelief. "Shocking elimination tonight," Tweeted judge Carrie Ann Inaba. "I think the most shocked I've been in all 11 seasons." Both dancers were near the top of the leader board, and Fox would've tied for first had his group's cha cha won. Still in the competition: Bristol Palin, who received the judges' lowest scores on November 1. It's not her fault, of course. She's well-liked on set, a hard worker and has earned high praise for holding her own as the only cast member without performing experience. But Palin, daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah, is also the only competitor tied to a media-savvy politician whose chosen Tea Party candidates made an impressive showing on Election Day. On websites such as and, they weren't just stumping for politicians. "To get some practice for tomorrow's big elections, cast your votes for Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas!" read one home page. Nothing has changed in the scoring; it's still a mathematical formula of 50 percent judges' scores and 50 percent viewers' votes. Even Fox is philosophical. "It's America's show," he says. "It's out of our control." But if Palin is getting a boost from conservatives for the second half of her scores, she's not doing the stumping herself. "I have no idea if the Tea Party is voting for me," she tells TV Guide Magazine. "I think people are voting for me because I'm a normal person, and they can see I'm improving." But Goodman isn't having it. "The American people — and the British — we like the underdog," he said. "But we like justice more. And there is no justice." Source Here 

Dancing with the Stars' Karina Smirnoff Engaged

Karina Smirnoff is engaged to marry boyfriend Brad Penny, she told People. Penny popped the question on Oct. 4. "We kept it quiet because my family is in New York and Brad's family is in Oklahoma so we kind of wanted them to come out and celebrate and be a family first before we let the cat out of the bag," the Dancing with the Stars pro said. Smirnoff and Penny, a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, have been dating since October 2009. The pair, both 32, met through a mutual friend, Ultimate Fighting Championship star Chuck Liddell. She previously had been engaged to fellow Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. This season on the ABC dancing competition series, Smirnoff was paired with Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. The duo were eliminated in the fourth week. Source Here

Dancing's Kurt Warner: I'm "Dumbfounded" By the Instant Dance

In case you're wondering, Kurt Warner still doesn't know the difference between flexed knees and bent knees. "I have no idea. I don't even know which one I'm supposed to have!" the Dancing with the Stars contestant tells nearly a week after judge Len Goodman criticized his knee technique. "Because I'm so tall, Anna [Trebunskaya] always tells me to bend my knees. ... I just listen to her. She tries to focus on the things that are most important." This week, the former Arizona Cardinals quarterback has yet another thing to worry about —the Instant Dance. To Read More Click Here.

Dancing's Maks: Instant Dance Could Get Messy

Hi everyone, Hope you had a great week. Thanks for voting for us! Well, we had another very good week. Our team dance went great and I'm so proud of Brandy for the foxtrot. Gilles was funny because he came up to us afterward and apologized for giving us a 9. I told him, "Friendship aside, you were being the judge." I mean, I've got to admit, I felt like the whole time the celebrity judges weren't particularly looking for anything. I think having the celebrity judges was an exciting gimmick. They were more or less there to say something nice, give a 10 and move on. I felt like Gilles wanted to give a 10. I don't think there's anything wrong with them handing out "free" scores to inflate our scores. Len's 10 was the highlight for Brandy this season. She was like, "Oh my God!" I'm not trying to show off or whatever, but I seriously think she did one of the best performances. People are talking about the face she made after her little slip-up, but it was minor and I still think, overall, she did a fantastic job. Whether or not judges deduct points for that is up to them. It's totally up to the viewers. I'm just focused on having Brandy do her best.  To Read More  ClicK here.
