'Dancing With the Stars': Partners Derek Hough and Shawn Johnson both injured

Shawn Johnson's knee sprain was a major storyline on "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" -- especially since a knee injury ended her gymnastics career. What the show didn't reveal, however, is that her pro partner, Derek Hough, was also dancing through pain. While icing his neck backstage after Monday night's (Oct. 29) country-themed performance, the three-time champ revealed that he suffers from a bulging disc in his vertebrae, which flared up earlier that day. "I've had it for a couple years," he told us, "but once it flares up -- like it did today -- it sort of immobilizes me." "I saw him today turn his head and I was like, Uh-oh," added Shawn, who could immediately tell something was wrong. "I was like, What did you do? It slowly got worse." "I danced through it," Hough said, holding a bag of ice under the back of his shirt collar. "A little adrenaline helps out,... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/10/dancing-with-the-stars-partners-derek-hough-and-shawn-johnson-both-injured.html

After watching the Dancing With the Stars Season 15 All-Stars Season 15, Week 4: Performance show, many fans shared on Twitter that Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy’s Contemporary dance was the sexiest dance in DWTS history. But when it comes to Kelly and Val’s chemistry off-camera, the General Hospital star is keeping her lips sealed: “I don’t kiss and tell,” she told Wetpaint Entertainment the morning after (October 16). “That’s between... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/oL9xz2Ms4dQ/dwts-all-stars-kelly-monaco-on-kissing-val-those-cheryl-burke-expletives-and-more-exclusive

'Dancing With the Stars': Shawn Johnson doesn't let knee injury slow her down

"Dancing With the Stars" is always fraught with injuries to the amateurs and pros alike -- ballroom dancing can be dangerous. And Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson already has a bum knee, which actually kept her from making a serious run at the 2012 Olympic women's gymnastics team. This week in the group dance rehearsal, she re-injured her knee while horsing around with Sabrina Bryan and it wasn't look for very good for her country cha-cha with partner Derek Hough, but she muscled up and pulled through like a champ. The judges liked the routine, especially praising the seamless fusion of country steps with cha-cha steps. Carrie Ann's big criticism was that Shawn's solo was a bit stiff -- "You're better than that solo" -- and we can't argue. But Shawn received a 9.5 from Carrie Ann, an 8.5 from Len and a 10 from Bruno for a grand total of 84.5 (when last week's... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/10/dancing-with-the-stars-shawn-johnson-doesnt-let-knee-injury-slow-her-down.html

DWTS All-Stars: Really, Len? Judge Calls Out Derek Hough For Country Week "Frippery"

Extra “stuff” is not judge Len Goodman’s cup of tea. Every season on Dancing With the Stars he calls out someone — usually Derek Hough and/or Mark Ballas — for doing too much of this or not enough of that. Last week, on All-Stars Week 5, Len got upset with Derek for what he felt was not a proper Rumba with Shawn Johnson. This week, on Country Week 6, Len also had complaints about Shawn and Derek’s Cha-Cha-Cha to "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy."... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/IqunPsNEWx0/dwts-all-stars-really-len-judge-calls-out-derek-hough-for-country-week-frippery

DWTS All-Stars Week 7: Fusion Dances Are Coming! Whatever That Means!

What are fusion dances? Apparently they are like Labradoodles, but probably not as cute. On the Dancing With the Stars All-Stars Week 6 Performance Show, host Tom Bergeron said more twists were coming for the All-Stars next week. For the first time ever, he said, they'll be performing fusion dances, combining dance styles. The dance styles will be chosen the way they did it a couple of weeks ago — as competitor’s choice during tomorrow’s Results Show. That was a fun... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/pMwJZqGxZIQ/dwts-all-stars-week-7-fusion-dances-are-coming-whatever-that-means

'Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars' Week 6 Preview: It's Country Week, Y'All

After a week of no eliminations, things are more or less back to normal on week 6 of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars . And by more or less, there are at least two weird things happening. First, the scores from last week's dances will be added to the scores from this week in order to determine who is eliminated. Second, the couples will all be dancing to country music. That should be interesting... http://www.buddytv.com/articles/dancing-with-the-stars/dancing-with-the-stars-all-sta-48194.aspx

Dancing's Cheryl Burke: We're Peaking at the Right Time

Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke didn't top the leader board on Dancing with the Stars last week, but she thinks their sassy samba, which scored a 29, was just what the doctored ordered. "I think we're peaking at the right time," Burke tells TVGuide.com. "Now we're in the middle of the season, so you really have to start stepping it up to get over that hump and try to make the finals." The two, who won Season 3 together, have the foxtrot this week and a group dance with the rest of the cast for Country Week. Find out what they have in store. Plus: How did Burke feel about being the most-wanted pro this season?  http://www.tvguide.com/News/Dancing-Cheryl-Burke-1055173.aspx?rss=breakingnews

DWTS All-Stars: Karina Smirnoff Responds to Chemistry and Choreography Criticism

Apolo Ohno and Karina Smirnoff have never been at the bottom of the judges' leaderboard, or in the bottom two, but judge Carrie Ann Inaba had some criticism for them on Dancing With the Stars All-Stars Week 5. Carrie Ann blogged that Karina’s choreography wasn’t pushing Apolo enough, and on Tuesday’s Performance Show she said something was missing in the partnership in terms of chemistry and teamwork. Karina told Yahoo! TV chemistry can be hard to maintain day in and day... http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/Wu_r_Gav-zo/dwts-all-stars-karina-smirnoff-responds-to-chemistry-and-choreography-criticism
