"I've always lived by the rule that if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Recently and regrettably, I broke that rule," Burke tweeted after saying that Ian Ziering made her want to slit her wrists.

"In the heat of an interview conversation, I used a phrase that seemingly makes light of suicide and I deeply regret it. I have ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Cast Revealed For 17th Season -- We Pick The Winner

Dancing with the Stars 17th season cast
Would you believe that this is the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars? This season, ABC will be only airing one episode of the show per week instead of the usual two, due ratings slipping through the years. However, producers have pulled together a rather interesting cast of characters this season. Let's break down who we think will win it all:

Bill Engvall dancing with pro Emma Slater

We won't see much of Bill nor newcomer Emma. This is the prime suspect for first off the show. Verdict: 12th place.

Jack Osbourne dancing with pro Cheryl Burke

The Motown Celebration ended with the “Empress of Soul,” making her exit, which left seven of the stars to battle it out for the seventh week in the ballroom. Now you would think that since it was classical week the intensity and fire would burn out, but things seem to get hotter with Maria and Derek and the steamy shirtless team pose doble dance. I don’t know what it was, but the pose doble ruled the night.

The night started off with a performance by award winning violinist and throughout the evening we had the pleasure of hearing the lovely voice of 12-year-old classical singer, Jackie ...

There's still ten dancing teams left in Dancing with the Stars, but it might be time to call it a match - Katherine Jenkins is running away with the competition.

The singer isn't well known here in the States, but that isn't stopping her from racking up the points and becoming the obvious frontrunner. In fact, Jenkins has led every week but one and has already netted two 29/30 scores, thanks to Len Goodman who rarely gives out 10s. That didn't keep him from saying "I'm gonna call you the midwife – you keep delivering week after week" to her last night after an awesome samba.
