Oppan Gangnam Style
Dancing With The Stars pros and contestants Cheryl Burke, Emmitt Smith, Kirstie Alley, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Kelly Monaco, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd, and Gilles Marini took to the dance floor for a little "Gangnam Style" for their Team Dance Monday night.

The song has made Korean singer PSY an overnight sensation as his hit single continues its reign as perhaps the biggest guilty pleasure since Los Del Rio's "Macarena" in the mid-90s. "Gangnam Style" refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district of Seoul.

Tuesday PSY was spotted at the United Nations Headquarters ...

Who Will Be A 'Dancing With The Stars' All-Star?

May 16th, 2012 2:07pm EDT
Mario Lopez
We knew back in April, thanks to a loose-lipped Mario Lopez, that ABC would be airing an all-star version of their dancing competition Dancing with the Stars. Finally, the network has officially announced the alternate version of the show, which lets us wonder - who will be on it?

Lopez, obviously, is in unless ABC is sour that he let loose he was asked to be on it before the network announced the show. TV Guide reported Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, Sabrina Bryan, Gilles Marini and Kyle Massey are in.

The other night, Tom Bergeron said past winners would compete as well. That means Kelly ...

TV on DVD: 'Brothers & Sisters: The Fifth and Final Season'

August 25th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Brothers & Sisters
This week, ABC Home Entertainment released the fifth and final season of the award-winning Brothers & Sisters. Here's my review of the five-disc DVD set.

The Show

Brothers & Sisters (not to be confused with the late ABC series Sons & Daughters) feels familiar, because its cast is composed of many people who have had previous defining roles on television. Sally Field had her acclaimed guest stint on ER. Calista Flockhart will always be the title character from Ally McBeal to many people. Rachel Griffiths previously had a major role on Six Feet Under. These are people you've probably ...

Spotlight On Gilles Marini

Gilles Marini
Many may recognize Gilles Marini from his recurring role as Luc Laurent on the ABC hit drama 'Brothers and Sisters,' however; Marini was not always an actor. Hailing from Grasse, Alpes-Maritimes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France, his debut into the world of entertainment began in his early twenties when he accidentally fell into modeling after meeting famous photographer Fred Goudon while living in Paris.

Fulfilling his duties in the military is what took Marini to Paris where he was part of the French army serving as a fireman for the Brigade des Sapeurs Pompiers de Paris. After his d...

Celebrities Who Get Naked On Screen: A Thin Line Between Classy & Trashy

June 19th, 2009 10:09am EDT
Halle Berry
Hollywood royalty used to use body doubles for filming sex scenes in their films; the thought of them baring it all was almost a joke. But as sex and nudity have taken a more artsy approach on screen, celebrities are jumping at the chance to take their careers to a more risqué level...

Yet, baring it all in films is a very touchy subject with actors. This is a topic young Hollywood and wannabe actors can't seem to grasp. If you are an established actor and nudity is done in good taste, it's viewed by most people as classy. But if you're just starting out, you don't want to be known as ...

The Dancing With The Stars semi-finals lived up to expectations as each of the four remaining couples performed a ballroom and a Latin routine, earning them scores to hopefully propel them into next week's finals.

Before their first routine, each couple analyzed their favorite dances from the past nine weeks. Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani picked the foxtrot and the samba to take cues from.

Bruno Tonioli told Shawn she danced like Sporty Spice with precision...

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke kicked off the evening of Dancing With The Stars with a crazy Lindy hop. Gilles, like many other stars this season, has been dealing with an injury. His shoulder was hurt, but the doctor gave him a cortisone shot and he continued to push through rehearsal. However, the Lindy hop involves difficult lifts. Gilles worked through the pain and pleased the judges, though.

Carrie Ann Inaba said she was pleased to see a brand new side of Gilles. Bruno Tonioli thought that it was good to see a sense of comedy from the usually sexy, sensual guy. Gilles received a ...

The Dancing With The Stars celebrities were very busy multi-tasking this week. They not only learned an individual routine and a group dance, but they helped style their professional partner. This week the couples mixed it up and performed a variety of routines.

First up was Melissa Rycroft and professional partner Tony Dovolani performing the Argentine Tango. Melissa's newfound stardom allowed her a behind the scenes look at the Desperate Housewives set with Teri Hatcher.

Dancing With The Stars
Dancing With The Stars reached the halfway point of the competition, and with only 8 stars left they have to prove whether they are "contenders" or "pretenders." This week the couples danced either the romantic rumba or the fun, energetic jive.

Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower were up first performing the jive. After some harsh critique last week from the judges, Ty decided he needed to loosen up. All the judges agreed that he was giving it his all, but that it wasn't that great. Judge Len Goodman told Ty he was charming, but looked bewildered while dancing. Bruno Tonioli thought the li...

Dancing With The Stars finally broke the point barrier and gave three stars the highly coveted ten. The show not only gave out this season's first perfect thirty, but also introduced the audience to two new dances - The Lindy Hop and the Argentine Tango.

Also, based on Monday's performances, two stars will be going home Tuesday in a double elimination.

It's the third week of Dancing With The Stars; the judges already have their favorites and those who they can barely tolerate. But every week something changes the contest, just a little bit.

This week, Denise Richards, who has fared pretty average the past few weeks, fell from grace. After performing her samba, Carrie Ann Inaba thought that Denise looked frightened to death. Len Goodman explained that the samba is one of the most difficult dances, but that Denise lacked the Latin kick that the dance needed. Bruno Tonioli said her routine was flat and full of holes. Not much worked out...
