'Dancing With the Stars': Julianne Hough jealous of Maria Menounos' abs

This includes her partner Derek Hough's sister Julianne.During an interview with AfterBuzz TV, Derek explains what his sister told Maria. (It's at 1:06:44 in the video.) The host says, "Derek, your sister Julianne came up to Maria after the show and said this is the best tango she's ever seen on any season of the show. Derek replies, "Well, she's very kind and very sweet for saying that. She's jealous right now of Maria's abs. She's literally like, 'Maria, whatever you're doing -- I want to look like your body right now.'"Maria also sent her team of doctors to help Katherine Jenkins after she injured her back in her final dance. "Katherine is down right now, so we chatted with her, and I got... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/dancing-with-the-stars-julianne-hough-jealous-of-maria-menounos-abs.html

'Dancing With the Stars': Maria Menounos says your tweets gave her strength

"DWTS" was down to the wire during the semi-finals competition. Maria Menounos and her partner Derek Hough managed to grab triple tens for their amazing first dance. They ended at the top of the leader board for 59 total points.Menounos says it was a really rough week, with Hough suffering an injury and lots of stress. She tells Zap2it on the press line, "Last night after 12 hours of rehearsing, and we didn't eat for nine hours straight we realized, we were starving, exhausted, then of course what happens ... I start to well up and was like 'after all this good work we have done, tomorrow we are going out there and I'm going to embarrass my family, I am so dumb. I worked so hard and everything has hurt for weeks and this is how it's going to end?' It was one of who saved her.

'Dancing With the Stars': Mark Ballas on Katherine Jenkins' injury

Katherine Jenkins did a perfect dance with partner Mark Ballas on "DWTS" until the very last pose. As she was doing a complicated end stance with Ballas, her back twinged and she fell. Ballas adjusted so she didn't hit the floor, but it left her in pain, tears and apologizing for messing up their chances at the dance. Backstage at the show, the cameras were left rolling and the press got to see a tearful Katherine being treated by doctors and given ice to shrink the swelling. She didn't come out to do the press line, but we spoke to Ballas about her condition.He had nothing but praise for his partner, saying he hoped people would still vote for them. "Hopefully they liked what we did, because it was feeling great up until there. Because in my mind, I was like, 'yeah, yeah.' And in dress rehearsal today, we made zero mistakes in that dance... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/dancing-with-the-stars-mark-ballas-on-katherine-jenkins-injury.html

'Dancing With the Stars': Maria Menounos so close to a perfect 60

For the semi-finals on "Dancing With the Stars," Maria Menounos and partner Derek Hough tackled the Argentine tango and the jive and both were spectacular. The judges almost gave Maria two perfect scores, but her jive got a 9 from Len Goodman.The Argentine tango really was perfect. It was amazing. We completely agree with Carrie Ann in re: Maria's time on the show, "The journey and the transformation you have undergone." It's really remarkable. Though we aren't sure we need to hear about Carrie Ann spreading her legs under the table. Heh.As for the jive, the Latin beat to the song was a quibble. We prefer the swing beats on jive dances, but that's personal taste. What we don't like is that we didn't think this jive was as good as Donald Driver's last week, so perhaps she was over-scored? Or more likely, Donald was under-scored. He really was. What did you think, "DWTS"... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/dancing-with-the-stars-maria-menounos-so-close-to-a-perfect-60.html

'Dancing With the Stars': Donald Driver's emotional waltz and hot samba

For the "Dancing With the Stars" semi-finals, Donald Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd took on the waltz and the samba. The judges enjoyed both dances, giving Donald a 28 and 29, respectively, but it wasn't enough to put him at the top of the leaderboard.We thought the waltz was absolutely gorgeous and could have gotten maybe another point. We definitely agree with Carrie Ann that the emotional feeling was palpable and that it was still "fantastically mesmerizing." It was also adorable to see his Green Bay Packers teammates in the audience!Then his samba to "Mr. Big Stuff" was fabulous and we aren't sure why William Levy can get three 10s for his samba and Donald doesn't get three 10s for his. Donald is just so light on his feet and so quick. Len sure is stingy when it comes to Driver, we think.What do you think, "DWTS" fans? Is Donald safe for the finals... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/dancing-with-the-stars-donald-drivers-emotional-waltz-and-hot-samba.html

'Dancing With the Stars': Katherine Jenkins ends up at the bottom

For the semi-finals on "Dancing With the Stars," Katherine Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas took on the quickstep and salsa. Katherine's quickstep got a good score (29), but her salsa got the lowest score of the night (27), which landed her at the bottom of the leaderboard. We can see what the judges saw on the salsa - she's such a good hold dancer, but sometimes the more loosey-goosey dances aren't as good for Katherine and that was the case here. It wasn't bad, by any means, but this is the semi-finals and the competition this year is incredibly tough. Also, the choreography was really weird, which is Ballas' fault. Her quickstep, however, was great. Maybe our favorite dance she's ever done. Our only quibble was we would've liked to see more facial expressions beyond the ones in the middle section that were obviously choreographed.Do you think Katherine's fans will rally around her to... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/05/dancing-with-the-stars-katherine-jenkins-ends-up-at-the-bottom.html
