Dancing with the Stars
Just because Amal Alamuddin wears loose clothing doesn’t mean she’s expecting, an original cast member is leaving Dancing with the Stars, Henry Cavill and his girlfriend go their separate ways, and more in Last Lap.
Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron knows all about busting a move. But was he ready for today’s video challenge from Big Morning Buzz Live host Nick Lachey?
Dancing with the Stars has a strong history of helping former household names regain the spotlight (while wearing spandex). Last night, Season 19 contestant Alfonso Ribeiro took to floor to the familiar sounds of Tom Jones, busting out moves he made famous on ’90s series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Big Morning Buzz Live stages a dance competition (well, sort of), Kendra Wilkinson finds divine inspiration for her daughter’s name, and celebrities wade into the wide world of mean tweets.
Is Simon Cowell having a boy or a girl? What does being a feminist mean to Farrah Abraham? How do Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson measure up to Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele as they’re described on the page?
No, you haven’t woken up back in 2010, Groundhog Day-style. Your deja vu is more than just deja vu! The suspicious package of white powder sent to CBS yesterday was not only intended to scare Dancing With The Stars star Bristol Palin, it was also the second package of white powder send for that exact purpose. The first threatening parcel was sent to frighten the reality star during her first appearance on the show two years ago. “This is what will happen to you if Bristol Palin stays on [the show],” a note attached to the most recent package declared. Well, consider us mind-boggled. We can barely get out of the house to buy stamps when we need them. How did two different people (or who knows? The same person multiple times?) think it reasonable to buy powder, drive to the post office and mail a threatening package to anyone, let alone Bristol Palin? It’s like we’re always screaming at our mom: people care about DWTS too much!
Fortunately for Sarah Palin‘s daughter, TMZ reports that the powder found on the package was harmless; authorities are currently “investigating the situation.” So, what’s sadder: if the most recent package was sent by the same person, or if it was sent by someone else? Haha, it’s a trick question! The answer is both! Hey, we just hope it wasn’t the guy who shot his TV in reaction to Bristol’s dance routine…

Last week Dancing With the Stars first All-Stars season said a not-so-shocking goodbye to Pamela Anderson and her sexy wriggle. Looks like the riffraff is disappearing quicker than usual, and everyone knows the competition is stiff. Let’s continue breaking down the good, the not-so-bad and the ugly from the dance floor and see if we can predict which DWTS alums stepped it up enough to stick around another week.
Gilles Marini & Peta Murgatroyd
Although it was Sabrina Bryan & Louis Van Amstel who scored the highest routine of the night by pulling the first 9 from the judges this season, Switched at Birth hottie Gilles Marini (don’t you dare mock my ABC Family programming obsession) showed a little more cleavage than his former Cheetah Girls competition. Man Boobs > Sparkly Lady Cleavage = Gilles Wins All The Points. Shirtlessness aside, his excited, high-kicking jive was made all the more impressive since he strained a thigh muscle practicing. Many thanks to ABC for conducting part of Gilles interview while he was pantsless lying on a physical therapy table. What say you, Bruno Tonioli? “You’ve got the coiff. You’ve got the cleavage. Let the good times roll!” Indeed. Score: 24.5/30

Dancing With the Stars premiered last night with all the overly spray-tanned faces, judge sniping and glitter we’ve come to expect and love over the past 15 seasons. And the first all-star season of the oft-humiliating franchise took the competition up a notch with winners, finalists and favorites of the past shimmying their way through a tougher scoring system. You know, since every alum is now an expert dancer (except Pamela Anderson, just saying). But no matter how hard everyone worked, someone has to go home tonight. So let’s break down the good, the not-so-bad and the ugly from the dance floor and see if we can predict which DWTS alum will be having the first last dance.
Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke
The Football Hall of Famer —”Twinkle Toes” to you DWTS fans — is back! The Season 3 winner closed the premiere episode with a cha-cha that placed him and Cheryl at the top of the leader board. Even Len, who had been particularly reluctant to throw out praise all night said their performance was, “the last dance of the evening and the best.” Score: 24.5/30
Olympic gold-medalist Ryan Lochte seems to be taking his move to Hollywood quite seriously: Shortly after shooting his cameo for 90210, the swimmer hit the red carpet for The Expendables 2, where he was of course asked all sorts of questions about his new and potential gigs.
“All the cast members they helped me out and walked me through it, and it was a piece of cake,” he told E! of his appearance on 90210, in which he runs in to Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) and Max (Josh Zuckerman) at a resort. But was acting really that easy for Lochte? “I think the first couple [of takes] we needed to keep doing it over. … After I got, like, the fourth or fifth time, it was just over and over, I could do it.”
