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 Starsstar 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 weekDancing 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 Read more…
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.” Read more…
Dancing With The Stars has announced the line-up for this fall’s all-star season, and they’ve got all your favs! And, well, a lot of your not-so favs! The celebs signed on for some fancy footwork include Joey Fatone, Gilles Marini, Bristol Palin, Pamela Anderson, Kelly Monaco, Shawn Johnson, Kirstie Alley, Helio Castroneves, Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith and Apolo Ohno. Sadly, George Clonney’s lady Stacy Keibler won’t be returning for another round, but maybe you can just picture Joey Fatone in a plunging sequined number? You’re already doing it, so why not keep it going?
she told a Television Critics Association panel today. Thanks, Yahweh! Our question is: are there any names you are already dying to see back on the dance floor? Alternatively, anyone you’d rather see dance their way out of the studio, into a cab and back to their own apartments where they won’t be bothering anyone come September 24? We know there’s at least one; we can sense your eyes rolling.
Welcome back to the ever-popular and much beloved VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards! Yes, it’s that time of year again, where we pit your favorite stripped down celebs against one another to see has the most bangin’ bikini bod of 2012. Happy summer, folks!
Now that we’ve made Mickey Mouse blush by showing the sexiest Disney stars in bikinis, VH1 Celebrity continues the swimsuit parade with the hottest ladies of reality television. Our last list may have been filled with teen queens, but this time it’s all about the Wives!
So a monkey, a snake, and Maria Menounos walk into a bar. Amazingly this isn’t a joke, but actually how the Extra host celebrated her birthday over the weekend! Of course she busted out her celebratory bikini for the occasion. It wouldn’t be an event if she didn’t! Maria has bared her beach bod for Christmas, New Years, Superbowl Sunday and Cinco De Mayo, so now we just kind of expect it. But we’ll be honest, the monkey and the snake kind of threw us for a loop! Also present for her big day was Dancing With The Stars cast-mate Derek Hough and, bizarrely, Donald Trump. Thankfully, neither of them wore bikinis. Check out more in the gallery below!
Poor Lacey Schwimmer made a pretty unwelcome discovery as she walked into her Las Vegas dressing room yesterday. The dancer’s in the city as a part of Dancing With the Stars: Live in Las Vegas, FYI. And as she opened the door to her private — hear that security, private — space, she found a naked dude getting ready to go to the shower. Who this guy is, and more importantly, how he get in, is anyone’s guess. And this is just over two weeks after Tia Carrere found a thief in her dressing room, who made off with her purse! How are these people even getting backstage?
Lacey rushed out and it has been confirmed that she has filed a police report. We’re more interested to know where naked dude went? Did he rush out when he was discovered? Wouldn’t that have caused quite the stir? We know it’s Vegas, but a streaker backstage is still grounds for getting into trouble. Just so you know, Lacey went on and did her job regardless right after. Her spokesperson revealed, ”Lacey will go on with the show tonight. She is shook up but the show must go on. She entered her dressing room to find the naked man entering her shower.” The dancer even tweeted about it later, “Historically laughing at how bad today has been hahah!” Time to start putting the dressing room under lock and key, DWTS dancers.
Cinco de Mayo is generally seen as the kickoff to the summer bikini season, and we can’t think of a better way to get things started than with Maria Menounos! The Extra host and Dancing With The Stars hottie was spotted at Bud Light Lime’s ‘Lime-A-Rita’ Cinco de Mayo party in Las Vegas over the weekend showing off her killer dancer’s body in an electric green two-piece. This makes sense, because Maria celebrates most things with a bikini, including Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and the Super Bowl. What are traditions for, you guys!? She was joined poolside by DTWS partner Derek Hough, who was not wearing a bikini. So for that reason we’ll focus less on him and more on Maria. Get your photo fill in the gallery below!
We always forget that Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba got her start the same way Jim Carrey, the Wayans brothers, Jamie Foxx, Rosie Perez, Laurieann Gibson and Jennifer Lopez did, on In Living Color. But Inaba (who also danced on tour with Madonna, was a Japanese pop star and appeared in Austin Powers in Goldmember) reminded us when she appeared at the 2012 TV Land Awards (airing on TV Land April 29), where the Fox sketch show is receiving the Groundbreaking Award. VH1 News couldn’t resist asking if she ever reminisces about the good old days with JLo.
“Actually, we don’t really talk much,” Inaba said. “She’s on that other show called American Idol. And even though American Idol and Dancing With the Stars are right next to each other, we don’t really talk that much. Just kidding, there’s no bad blood.” Read more…
