Backstage Interviews at 'Dancing With the Stars': Kendra, Carrie Ann Make Up; John Travolta Loves Maks

Rivalries, couples not getting along, polarizing celebrities and loads of off-screen drama. These are the things that, for better or worse, have at times dominated the reality competition series known as 'Dancing With the Stars.' But as regular viewers of the show are finding out, there's not much of that going on in season 12. Instead, the most compelling aspects of the show are taking place right where they should be -- on the dance floor. There was, however, one feud that seemed to erupt from last week's show -- Kendra Wilkinson appeared to take great umbrage at judge Carrie Ann Inaba's remark that she appeared fearful of embracing elegance.

Did Pia Toscano Dump Longtime Boyfriend for DWTS Star Mark Ballas?

However loudly former American Idol finalist Pia Toscano might be claiming theyre just friends, its pretty much common knowledge that she and Dancing With the Stars dancer Mark Ballas are dating. However, something that is a little less clear is how long it had been since Pia broke up with her ex Carlos Nunez before starting to see Mark.One source told The New York Post that Nunez and Pia were still in a relationship when Pia was unceremoniously booted from Idol, and that the were even still... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/726NS5wsRh0/did-pia-toscano-dump-longtime-boyfriend-for-dwts-star-mark-ballas

"There's three things I like: The USA, partying and Miley Cyrus." Who knew we had so much in common with Chelsea Kane?!Disney darling Chelsea Kane and her pro partner Mark Ballas danced the Samba to fellow Disney star Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA" on "Dancing With the Stars" on Apr. 18. So how was their performance? In short: A party.Kane and Ballas are one of our favorite pairs simply because it looks like they have so much fun dancing together.

This was real good fun!"Carrie Ann Inaba: "You guys dance so well together. You match your moves perfectly. I think this was fantastic."Bruno Tonioli: "The positive energy of America and the sizzle and excitement of Brazil, the best of both worlds!

'Dancing with the Stars': Kirstie Alley, 'borderline crazy' American Woman

It was wonderful and horrible and probably killed some brain cells, but we loved Kirstie Alley's nutty fox trot on Monday's (April 18) "Dancing with the Stars."The ingredients: A royal blue "I Dream of Genie" get-up, a shirtless Russian with an American Flag painted on his flank, The Guess Who's "American Woman" and a visit from fellow Scientologist -- and dance doctor (who knew?) -- John Travolta.As per usual, Alley looked slightly tranquilized while dancing, though this week there were no overt mishaps (last week Alley lost a shoe, the week before Maks lost his balance and tumbled to the floor). The pair sought a little pre-show help from Travolta, a long-time friend of Alley's. His advice? "Wear high tops." She didn't, but the segment was fun.Travolta's wife, Kelly Preston, was in the audience to watch the fruits of her husband's labor. And his ministrations paid off, even if just a little. "Now that was... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/dancing-with-the-stars-kirstie-alley-borderline-crazy-american-woman.html

Hines Ward is 'an officer and a gentleman' on 'Dancing With the Stars'

Is Hines Ward the new Richard Gere? (Never thought we'd write that sentence.) Bruno seemed to think so after seeing Ward dance in uniform.On Monday's (April 18) "Dancing With the Stars" pair pro Kym Johnson and NFL all-star Hines danced the rumba to "Proud To Be An American" as part of the show's American Week.Despite Hines' protests about his sexiness and the couples' small injuries during their "unromantic" rehearsals (head bumps included!), the judges absolutely loved their performance. Here's what each judge thought:Bruno Tonioli: "An officer and a gentleman. Ease of movement, musicality and just the right amount of sensuality to make all the ladies swoon. Well played!"Carrie Ann Inaba: "You make it look so easy. You have the best hip action that I've seen in a long time!"Len Goodman: "It's not forced. It' has a naturalness about it. It's got an ease and an elegance that's charming. That's your best dance so far."Each judge... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/hines-ward-is-an-officer-and-a-gentleman-on-dancing-with-the-stars.html

'Dancing With the Stars': Chris Jericho's 'America the Beautiful' patriotic waltz

Was Chris Jericho ever in the military? No, but he sure wore that uniform like he was.On Monday's (April 18) "Dancing With the Stars" pair pro Cheryl Burke and pro wrestler Chris used a lovely, jazzy version of "America the Beautiful" coupled with an American flag background, a sparkly red dress with a plunging neckline for Cheryl and a smart military uniform for Chris to create a very patriotic Viennese Waltz.The judges were complimentary, with Bruno Tonioli describing it as "big, yet graceful. Strong, yet delicate. Elegant with a sweeping sense of romance. It was absolutely wonderful" and Carrie Ann Inaba saying that in a weird way they have underestimated him.Len Goodman was not quite as effusive, saying, "When you deserve an 8, I'll give you one. It was a little bit flat-footed." But when the scores came down, Len did indeed give Chris an 8. Along with Bruno and Carrie's 9s, Chris and Cheryl's... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/dancing-with-the-stars-chris-jerichos-america-the-beautiful-patriotic-waltz.html

'Dancing with the Stars': Ralph Macchio's stiff patriotic samba

Some things just don't go together. Two of those things are a soft-rock version of the Allman Brothers' Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" and the Brazilian samba. Of course, that didn't stop the geniuses at "Dancing with the Stars" from mashing up the two for the first dance of the night -- from erstwhile frontrunners Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff.From the first few steps, it was clear that Macchio's jeans -- super-dark cowboy-style wash -- were stiffer than Bruno Tonioli's enthusiastic critique. Macchio came off as uncomfortable and a little bit lost -- and who can blame him? It's like trying to sing "La Isla Bonita" while "Freebird is blasting into your earphones." Len Goodman and the afore-mentioned Tonioli both made a point of calling Macchio on his stiff hips."It needs fire down below, man," said Tonioli. "You've got to get those hips going."Carrie Ann Inaba was the dissenting opinion, saying "I think that was... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/dancing-with-the-stars-ralph-macchios-stiff-patriotic-samba.html

Has Petra Nemcova Broken the Supermodel Curse on DWTS?

Its almost like a jinx to talk about it, but since People magazine brought it up, well just blame them if Petra Nemcova is eliminated next. The mag asked the 511 Dancing With the Stars Season 12 dancer if she had broken the shows supermodel curse."What curse?" Petra asked. "I dont think about that." However, at Week 5 Petra has lasted longer than her fellow very tall models including Season 1s Rachel Hunter, Season 4s Paulina Porizkova, and Season 9s Kathy Ireland. Some shorter models like co-host... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/2ruqCq2vWIY/has-petra-nemcova-broken-the-supermodel-curse-on-dwts

Kendra Wilkinson Felt "Belittled" by DWTS Judge Carrie Ann Inaba?

A new People magazine story came out over the weekend and it quotes Kendra Wilkinson using some pretty harsh words when it comes to Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Is the DWTS Season 12 contestant complaining too much or is this, as her partner Louis van Amstel says, a case of Kendras words getting twisted?On Classical Week, Kendra & Louis danced a Viennese Waltz. Kendra has been vocal about feeling like a tomboy and being uncomfortable with the more graceful ballroom dances.... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/Qw0F9bYxLGo/kendra-wilkinson-felt-belittled-by-dwts-judge-carrie-ann-inaba
