Celebrity Conspiracy Theory: Ashley Hebert Is Being Groomed For “DWTS”

Hollywood these days is all about positioning and spin, and—what can we say?— it’s made us more than a little jaded. In this new column, we will share some of our most out-there theories about what’s really going on in the celeb-u-verse. Now, keep in mind that none of this is based on fact or even on the testimony of anonymous sources. They are purely hunches, and we could be totally and completely wrong. That said, we would not be super surprised if, some day, it came out that a few of our theories were right.

I believe I’ve uncovered the hidden agenda of this season of “The Bachelorette.” Ashley Hebert doesn’t give a fig about finding love. And she doesn’t actually want to become a dentist, even though she’s in school for it. It seems to me that she’d be more interested in becoming a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.” The evidence after the jump. Keep reading »

Kendra Wilkinson Says “Dancing With The Stars” Taught Her She Can Be Sexy With Her Clothes On

“‘[Dancing with the Stars'] was a perfect new start to my new life. It really proved that I could be sexy with some clothes on. Not a lot of clothes, but it proved to myself that I can do something like this. I feel like the same person I’ve always been since birth, but I have a new head on my shoulders. I’m a mom now. Life is different. But I’m still young. We’re still fresh. I’m just having fun, but I would never go back in time and do Playboy again. That’s something I’ll leave in my past.”

Kendra Wilkinson takes a brief pause from reminding us how her size zero, pre-baby body is back, and says something really interesting—that after doing “Dancing with the Stars,” she’s not sure she would become a Playboy bunny if given the chance to do it over again. Hey, if the show led to some personal growth and taught her that sexy doesn’t equal naked, I am all in favor. [People] Keep reading »

Kirstie Alley Gets Over Fear Of Lifts, Eyes Broadway

“I was offered a Broadway play. I’m not going to do it, because my friends said, `Don’t do one if you can’t get a Tony!’  But I am tempted … [In the past, lifts] would have freaked me out. I have this bizarre thing with height. I’m 5 foot 8, and I have this phobia. When I did ‘Look Who’s Talking’ with John Travolta, I weighed 114 pounds, and the director goes, `John, pick her up and take her to the bedroom.’ I’m like, no! I’m 5 feet 8! It’s going to be too much. I only think 5 foot 1 girls can fly around.”

Kirstie Alley reveals that after “Dancing with the Stars” wraps, she may well be headed to the stage. Kirstie, we’d love to see you on the Great White Way. Speaking of “DWTS,” we’ll find out whether Kirstie, Chelsea Kane, or Hines Ward wins tonight. Kirstie is the long shot, but I am totally proud of her for facing her fear and doing so many freaking lifts in her routine last night. No one puts Kirstie in the corner.

Bristol Palin’s Reality Show With Kyle Massey Sounds Terrrrrrrible

Bristol Palin photo

Bristol Palin‘s reality show is happening, people. (Is this why she (maybe) got plastic surgery?) There’s no baby daddy Levi Johnston in it. There is no “16 & Pregnant” pal Maci Bookout in it. And it’s airing on the BIO network, which I’ve never heard of. So far, not so good. The utterly compelling premise of Bristol’s reality show? America’s most famous teen mom moves into an apartment with her “Dancing with the Stars” castmate Kyle Massey, his brother, Chris Massey, and her son, Tripp. According to BIO’s press release, the show “follows Bristol Palin’s move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey.” Wait, she is living with boys? BOYS! Or does Disney neuter their male employees at contract signage? (Note to self: must look up.) Keep reading »

  • Ex-Hugh Hefner girlfriend/Playboy model Kendra Wilkinson got rated R on “Dancing With The Stars” last night, hopping up on the judge’s table for some booty-shakin’ to “La Vida Loca.” Have fun explaining that to your kids, moms and dads of America! [Celebuzz]
  • Gwyneth Paltrow called her “mean” grandmother a see-you-next-Tuesday on “Chelsea Lately.” Whoa. Whoa. [ONTD]

Kirstie Alley Becoming The “Freak Show” Of “Dancing With The Stars”


Last week, Kirstie Alley and her partner Maksim took a spill during their routine on “Dancing With The Stars“—and got better comments from the judges than ever for standing back up and continuing. Then last night, while doing their waltz, Kirstie lost a shoe and had to take a moment on the floor to fix it. “I’m not doing a sitcom. I’m actually doing a dancing show! I’m tired of having to recover,” Kirstie said. “I would just like to do something right. I don’t feel like I’m jinxed, but I feel like I need to get my s**t together… First week, we were the people who danced really well. And somehow along we’ve become the freak show.” Well, this could be an interesting new strategy. [EW] Keep reading »

Kirstie Alley Stumbles On “Dancing With The Stars”


Last night was a cringe-worthy episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” The contestants had to dance out tales of their personal struggle. Petra Nemcova danced about surviving the tsunami in 2004. And Kirstie Alley splayed herself wide open, dancing to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and dedicating her performance to her mom, who was hit and killed by a drunk driver in 1980, right before her acting career took off. So it made it even sadder when, a short moment into their performance, Kirstie dipped into her partner Maksim Chmerkovsky and they both tumbled to the ground after a slide. They got back up, but Maksim took a few seconds and winced pretty dramatically before the two started dancing again. Luckily, the judges were very forgiving. [TV Squad] Keep reading »

Tom Bergeron Non-Plussed With Chris Brown’s Appearance On “DWTS” Tonight

A week ago, Chris Brown smashed a window in his ABC dressing room following an interview on “Good Morning America” where Robin Roberts dared to ask him about Rihanna. Tonight, Chris has an appearance scheduled on another ABC show—”Dancing with the Stars.” Host Tom Bergeron isn’t too enthused. He told Ryan Seacrest yesterday, “I did say to the producers that it might be to their advantage to not have me interview him, because my natural tendency would be to say something. So don’t put me in a position where you’re asking me not to say something, because I won’t really do that.” And who knows what will happen if he asks the question—maybe Chris will rip some sequins off someone’s dance ensemble? Or hey, he might not even show up. He flaked on more than one performance last week. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Ralph Macchio Foxtrots His Way Into Our Hearts On “DWTS”


This season’s cast of “Dancing with the Stars” had me totally unenthused, but I watched the premiere last night anyway, because I care about you that much. And I was pleasantly surprised by the standout dancer of the night—Ralph Macchio of “The Karate Kid.” (No, not Jaden Smith. The original “Karate Kid” kid.) Ralph was so charming and debonair, adopting the air of a Brat Packer as he and his partner Karina Smirnoff did the Foxtrot and earned the night’s high scRalph Macchioore of 24. The hardest part for Ralph? “I have these orangutan arms, I call them, and the first thing Karina said was, ‘When they are done right, they are done fantastic, and when they are not, they will stick out,’” he said. “So I said to myself, every time I hit, I have to just go and reach … and I did it.” Wax on, wax off indeed.

Also, can we talk about how Ralph is 49? Dude is such a baby face. [EW] Keep reading »

“Dancing With The Stars” Season 12 Lineup Just Not As Juicy As The Last

Last night, I watched all 120 minutes of “The Bachelor,” rather than just fast-forwarding through the repetitive parts, so I could find out first hand who would be appearing on season 12 of “Dancing with the Stars.” And I gotta say, I am a little underwhelmed with the lineup. The guys who will lacing up their dancing shoes: Sugar Ray Leonard, the originl “Karate Kid,” Ralph Macchio, wrestler Chris Jericho, rapper Romeo, wide receiver Hines Ward, and “Loveline” co-host (aka Adam Corolla replacement) Mike Catherwood. For the women, we’ve got: Kirstie Alley, Wendy Williams, Kendra Wilkinson, Disney star Chelsea Kane, and former model Petra Nemcova. Notice how many of the folks require descriptors. Mike Catherwood and Chelsea Kane, here’s looking at you. Keep reading »
