'DWTS' Duo Robert Herjavec & Kym Johnson Spotted Kissing Post-El
"Dancing With The Stars" partners Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec were photographed kissing in Palm Springs over the weekend, pretty much confirming that they are a couple.

Us Weekly published a photo of the duo looking quite friendly together. A source said: "Kym and Robert were definitely attracted to each other from the get go. He's divorcing so maybe he wants to find a new hot girlfriend."

5/6/2015 5:34pm EDT
For months it's been rumored that Dancing With The Stars contestant Robert Herjavec and his pro partner Kym Johnson are dating, and when the two smooched during their performance on Monday night they had everyone talking.

Unfortunately the kiss wasn't enough to save the two stars from elimination on Tuesday, when they received scores of just 33 and 29 in their two dances.

The two have been evading questions about their relationship, and even maintained their front during their elimination, when host Tom Bergeron pushed the couple to confirm their romance.

The show kicked off with an explosive encore performance, by classical week favorite, Maria and Derek. And during the evening we welcomed back season 14 favorite, Gavin Degraw, for a couple performances.

There was also a tear jerking and touching performance by a dancer whose life changed overnight due to a brain aneurysm, and an exciting ballroom battle that ended with Cheryl’s team receiving the winning trophy.

'Dancing With The Stars': Maria Menounos Challenges Katherine Jenkins For Top Spot

5/1/2012 9:40am EDT
Maria Menounos Challenges Katherine Jenkins
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 ...

Motown week continued last night, and what another amazing evening. The night included a very powerful and inspiring AT&T spotlight performance by a young ballerina from Sierra Leone who beat the odds, to a live performance of “Wild Horses” by Natasha Bedingfield.

There was also a performane by Award winning group Boyz II Men, who gave us “One More Chance," and the Macy’s stars followed with a wonderful performance to David Guetta and Usher’s “Without You.” The night was very eventful, and once again came the time where one of the stars would be sent home.

Motown founder Barry Gordy even graced the audience with his presence for one of the biggest nights of Dancing With The Stars. For week six’s Motown week the contestants danced to the rumba, foxtrot, samba, Viennese waltz and the cha-cha-cha.

And the night ended with an amazing dance off/Motown marathon, where all of the stars hit the floor and were knocked off one by one. Overall it was a g...

With Sherri Shepherd’s shocking elimination last week on Dancing With The Stars, many of the stars were on edge going into this week’s result show. But, with a fiery encore performance by Maria and Derek, the evening seemed to get off to a spicier start than Monday night.

The DWTS pro showed off her figure in a bright yellow cut-out dress that revealed a lot of skin.

JACK WAGNER Eliminated on DWTS
Coming into last night’s results show was a bit difficult, since all of the stars performances were so amazing for week three. Even Len, who is usually overly critical, spoke about how unbelievable the performances were; and tried to convince the producers that no one should be sent home.

But, the tears and emotions from Monday’s heartfelt night had to be pushed aside, and the time came when someone in the group would have to say goodbye. The judges scores going into elimination were as follows in ranking order.

Actor Jaleel White has moved swiftly to brush off reports he was involved in a "vicious fight" with his Dancing With The Stars partner while rehearsing for the TV talent show.

The former Family Matters star, best known as geeky Urkel in the sitcom, was said to have shouted at Kym Johnson and called her an "idiot" during the heated confrontation on Friday, which was allegedly sparked after he accidentally stepped on her foot.

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Elimination Not A Surprise

Martina Navratilova Eliminated on DWTS
After a killer kick off and week two’s struggles with the quickstep and jive, the stars gathered to find out who would be the first in the competition to go home. What a night! And I would say one of the most nerve-wracking. Especially since one of the contestants would be eliminated without having the opportunity to prove what they really could do on the dance floor.

However Sugarland helped ease the tension with their country tunes; and one by one contestants were told if they would be safe or placed in the bottom. The scores going into the elimination were the following in ranking orde...

JR Martinez Wins 'Dancing With The Stars'
So last night ‘Dancing With The Stars’ crowned a new champion for it’s thirteenth season, and it was an outcome that I wouldn’t have predicted. Then again, I feel like I’ve been swinging back and forth all season, so it’s nothing new.

After Monday night’s show, Rob held onto the top spot, and I really hoped he would hang onto it. Here’s where the leader board stood on Monday:

1. Rob and Cheryl - 57
2. Ricki and Derek - 54
2. J.R. and Karina - 54

As usual, all the fallen stars took the stage in the first number, and it never fails to be kind of nostalgic. Which is weird, consid...

Fashion Fail: 'Dancing With The Stars' Regular Kym Johnson Goes See-Thru At 'The Muppets' Premiere (Pics)

11/13/2011 7:43pm EST
Kym Johnson
Sexy Australian Dancing With The Stars pro Kym Johnson joined Kermit The Frog, Miss Piggy and the gang at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood for the premiere of The Muppets on Saturday.

We're not sure what Kym was thinking when she put on a see-through mesh shirt and paired it with leather pants & boots, but we think it might be just a little inappropriate for the premiere of a kids' movie.

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Animal, Sweetums, Fozzie Bear, Rowlf the Dog and Gonzo along with the film's main stars Amy Adams, Jason Segel and Chris Cooper were all on hand for the big night.
