The Good, The Bad & The WTF: “Dancing With The Stars,” Take One

I won’t lie to you guys. I can’t watch “Dancing with the Stars” all the way through—it’s just so much filler. But that said, I do like to record it and fast forward to the performances. I have to say that last night, I was pretty impressed by the crew’s first efforts—from Chynna Phillip’s “I Dream of Jeannie” get-up to Chaz Bono’s gleeful smile as he danced. After the jump, the best, the worst, and most WTF performances of the night. Keep reading »

Angels Waltzed With Chynna Phillips On “DWTS”

“[I] literally felt the angels of the orphanage that I work with [in Tijuana] … all the little kids were dancing around with me … I could feel them. And I could feel their energy.”

Chynna Phillips on her premiere performance of the Viennese Waltz last night on “Dancing With the Stars.” Ah, yes. The invisible orphan angels turn any good waltz into a great one. I have a feeling this is going to be a fantastic season. Hold on. [EW] Keep reading »

Rob Kardashian’s Mom Forced Him To Do “Dancing With The Stars”

“My mom pretty much forced me to do this show. She did the same thing to Kim and now she’s doing it to me. [My mom told me] always smile and be yourself and let people see a side of you that they’ve never seen when they watch our show.”

Rob Kardashian explains why he decided to sign on for “Dancing with the Stars.” Because his mama, Kris Jenner, told him to. Wait a second, Kris also strong-armed Kim into doing the show in 2008? Why did both of them listen to her? Kim, if your mom told you to jump off a bridge participate in a truly embarrassing ’80s music video, would you do that too? Oh. [Wet Paint]

After the jump, Carson Kressley on his big fear for the show. Keep reading »

The “Dancing With The Stars” Cast: 14 Predictions For This Season

Last night during “Bachelor Pad,” ABC unveiled the lineup for the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.” While I am shocked and dismayed that Queen Latifah is not among the ranks, I am totally thrilled by who they selected. Here are the women: Kristin Cavallari (of “The Hills’), Ricki Lake (of hello, do I need to explain?), Chynna Phillips (of Wilson Phillips), Nancy Grace (the newscaster), and Elisabetta Canalis (the Italian television star and recent ex of George Clooney). And the men: Ron Artest (the Los Angeles Laker), Carson Kressley (of “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”), Robert Kardashian (the younger brother of Kim), and Chaz Bono (the son of Cher and Sonny Bono who used to be a she.) And the two people who it’s a stretch to call stars: JR Martinez (the “All My Children” actor who was burned while serving in Iraq) and Hope Solo (the goalie of the US women’s soccer team. No relation to Han.)

After the jump, 14 predictions on what we think will happen this season. Keep reading »

Cheryl Burke Wants Bill Clinton On “Dancing With The Stars”

“If I could pick one person to dance with, it would be Bill Clinton or Bradley Cooper. I think Mr. Clinton has a charm about him. He’s very charming and I think he can talk his way into anything.”

—Cheryl Burke of “Dancing with the Stars” tells Huffington Post about her dream partner for the show. I certainly hope Slick Willy is listening, because watching him do the tango in a sequined suit would be amazing. In this interview, Cheryl also revealed that, with the exception of Drew Lachey and Ian Ziering, she’s always had to Google her dance partners on the show to find out who the heck they are. Ouch.
