“Dancing With The Stars”: Who We’d Like To See Next Season

Last night Nicole Scherzinger was the 10th star to claim the mirrored ball on “Dancing with the Stars.” The lead Pussycat Doll went up against Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek and ESPN anchor Erin Andrews and came out victorious. Many predicted that Scherzinger would win from the start based on her spectacular performances and stage presence, not to mention her extensive dance history as a member of PCD. But Lysacek and Andrews gave her a good run for her money, bringing an enjoyable end to a season of controversy.

Was it me, or was season 10 the most exciting ever? Kate Gosselin‘s diva behavior, Jake Pavelka‘s cornball glances at Vienna Girardi, and Nicole’s spats with Pamela Anderson made it must-watch TV, not to mention Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s major snafu regarding Erin Andrews’ wardrobe. The show seriously picked the right contestants this time around. To help them out for season 11, here are the 15 stars we’d love to see do the rumba next. Keep reading »

Quotable: Johnny Weir Won’t Watch Evan Lysacek On “Dancing With The Stars”

“Evan is fine as a person. We’ve been competitors for years and years and years and that’s kinda the forefront to us being people to each other. I think he worked very hard and he deserved that Olympic gold medal and he does a good job. He does his work. But as a person I don’t really know him that well and we’ve never really made the effort to be nice to each other. And I won’t watch him [on 'Dancing With the Stars.'].”

Quotable: Evan Lysacek Will Tan For “DWTS”

“Spray tans! I usually don’t like to have them because I don’t like the smell of it, but I have had it before. Spray me up, baby! I’m going full-force on this show. I’m not going to hold anything back.”

“Dancing With The Stars” Season 10 Cast Announced!

And it features a who’s who of the most tabloid-y celebs EVER! Last night, towards the tail end of “The Bachelor” season finale (refer to the liveblog if you want the play-by-play), Tom Bergeron and former “Bachelor”/”DWTS” contestant Melissa Rycroft announced who would be shimmying when the show returns Mar. 22. Kate Gosselin! Pamela Anderson! That ESPN sportscaster who got peeped on in the nude (Erin Andrews)! That old guy from NASA (Buzz Aldrin)! Some football meathead with numbers in Spanish as his last name (Chad Ochocinco)! Plus, Evan Lysacek, Shannen Doherty (Brenda Walsh, y’all!), Niecy Nash, Nicole Scherzinger (from the Pussycat Dolls), Aiden Turner (some hot soap star), and, the final BIG ANNOUNCEMENT of the evening, “The Bachelor”‘s own Jake Pavelka. Seriously, I loathe “DWTS,” but even I may watch this season to see Pamela pop out of one of her costumes, Vienna sitting front row, and what they do to glam up Kate Gosselin’s hair. My early favorite to win? Evan Lysacek obviously. [EW] Keep reading »

Evan Lysacek’s Feelings Are Hurt (We’ll Comfort Him)


U.S. Olympic gold medal figure-skating hottie, Evan Lysacek, went on “Larry King” last night where he was asked about some of the controversy surrounding his rival, Russian silver medalist Evgeni Plushenko. Plushenko, you might have heard, has complained that he was robbed of the gold medal (because he landed a quadruple jump, which Lysacek didn’t even attempt) and has taken to his official website where he designed and awarded himself a pretend platinum medal for his Vancouver performance. Asked how he felt about this disrespectful behavior from someone he considers a “hero,” Lysacek replied: “It just stings a bit. And I’ve tried really hard to not feel like it’s a personal attack, but it’s starting to feel that way. And coming from a stranger, it wouldn’t bother me, but coming from somebody I really look up to … ” Aww, come here, Evan. I’ll be happy to make you feel better! Clip above.

Olympic Lovahs: Evan Lysacek & Nastia Liukin, And Other Medal-Wearing Sweethearts

Cute couple alert! Turns out that gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek and gold medal gymnast Nastia Liukin have been dating since the summer, when they met at a “Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular.” Liukin came to Vancouver to support her beau. “To see his dreams come true was amazing. Even though we’re not in the same sport, we got to connect at the same level because there’s nothing like the Olympics,” she said. “It was nice to be on the other side of things and be the support system, but I was nervous.” But why the secrecy? As far as I can tell, girls are crushing on Johnny Weir, who is even more unavailable than Lysacek. [NY Daily News]

The good thing about athletes dating is that when and if they breed, their spawn will be ultra athletes, emerging from the womb doing cartwheels. Oh, but there are more adorable Olympic couples out there. After the jump, our favorites. Keep reading »
