Hollywood's Curvy Cuties

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns J.R. Martinez The Hero Of The Ballroom

November 23rd, 2011 9:14am EST
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...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Six Says Goodbye To Chaz (Finally)

October 26th, 2011 9:34am EDT
DWTS Week Six Says Goodbye To Chaz (Finally)
Monday night, Ricki picked herself back up, J.R. gave us a little dose of amazing, Maks lost his cool (hard to believe, I know!), Nancy scored way higher than she deserved, and Chaz landed in the bottom spot, a full ten points behind the leaders. So it was interesting, to say the least. With the exception of Ricki and J.R., though, I can’t decide if it was interesting-good, or interesting-bad.

Here’s where the leader board stood on Monday night:

1. Ricki and Derek - 29
1. J.R. and Karina - 29
2. Nancy and Tristan - 24
3. David and Kym - 23
4. Rob and Cheryl - 22

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Six Performances Go To Broadway

October 25th, 2011 9:50am EDT
DWTS go to Broadway
It’s Broadway Week at ‘Dancing With The Stars’, so of course the show was packed with drama. Not that it isn’t always, but this week we got more, including an extra group dance with all the stars together, a hysterical John Travolta impression from David, Monty Python music, a comeback for Ricki, and Maks opening his big fat mouth to say the wrong thing at the wrong time. Eh, such is Maks.

Here’s how it went:

Rob Kardashian (reality star) & Cheryl Burke
Dance: Cha-cha-cha
Scores: 8, 7, 7
Len said it was clean and precise, but it was stiff and lacked rhythm. Bruno said it was adequate, ...

Cher Fuming Over 'Dancing' Judge's 'Little Penguin' Remarks

October 25th, 2011 8:17am EDT
Cher
Cher has lashed out at a judge on TV show Dancing With The Stars after he ridiculed her son Chaz Bono's ballroom skills on Monday night.

The transgender star has been competing with professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer in the contest, and on Monday, they performed a Phantom of the Opera-inspired tango as part of the show's Broadway week.

The routine failed to impress the judges, with panelist Bruno Tonioli comparing his moves to "a cute little penguin trying to be a big menacing bird of prey."

And the comments hit a nerve with Bono's superstar mom, who took to Twitter to take Tonioli to...

'Dancing With The Stars' Wicked Harsh Week Five Elimination: Carson Kressley

October 19th, 2011 9:15am EDT
DWTS Week Five Elimination: Carson Kressley
80s week came to an end last night, and fortunately for you dudes and dudettes, that means I’m going to have to stop with the 80s slang. Well, I don’t have to, but you’d all probably quit reading my totally tubular reviews.

Okay, I’m done. Here’s how the stars stood on the leader board after Monday night:

1. J.R. and Karina - 28
2. Rob and Cheryl - 25
2. David and Kym - 25
3. Hope and Maks - 24
3. Ricki and Derek - 24
4. Nancy and Tristan - 22
5. Chaz and Lacey - 21
6. Carson and Anna - 19

We jumped right in with our 3rd place finishers, Ricki moving on to next week while Hope was in j...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Five Performances Are Totally Bodacious

October 18th, 2011 11:42am EDT
DWTS 80's Week
Last night ‘Dancing With The Stars’ brought back side ponytails, leg warmers, and music that either inspired nostalgia or mild embarrassment. Or both. Yep, it was 80s night, and while I was young in the 80s, it’s a decade that was hard to forget for anyone who lived through it. Honestly, I’m pretty sure everyone in the fashion and entertainment industries went insane for about ten years. Pants with stirrups? Check. Movies where mannequins came to life? Check. And I’m pretty sure I had an enormous sweater covered in graffiti of every color that was totally radical, dude.

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four: Say Goodbye To Chynna Phillips

October 12th, 2011 9:08am EDT
DWTS Says Goodbye To Chynna Phillips
Last Tuesday I was so sure that Chaz was going to go home... and then he didn’t. A much better dancer did. It made me worried for Carson going into last night’s elimination. Then again, Chynna fell from a second place standing to being tied for second to last place with Nancy and Chaz. That is not a good place to be at all.

Here’s where the leader board stood Monday night:

1. Ricki and Derek - 29
2. J.R. and Karina - 26
3. Hope and Maks - 24
3. Rob and Cheryl - 24

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Four Goes To The Movies

October 11th, 2011 9:36am EDT
DWTS Movie Night
In a week, we lost another dancer, Brooke got a new last name (congrats, Mrs. Charvet!), and all the stars started freaking out. Yep, week four is about that time for the pressure to kick in, especially after the last elimination. The voters at home decided last week that sometimes dancing ability won’t save you.

Two weeks ago, I predicted that Kristin would make the top five. Well, I guess not. Meanwhile Chaz is still dancing. I swear, I’ll tear my hair out if we have another Bristol Palin phenomenon. I have a hard time seeing that happening, but it has before.

Anyway, this week wa...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Three Sends Home Reality Star Kristin Cavallari

Kristin Cavallari Sent Home


Monday night had me sniffling off and on throughout the show, so I was crossing my fingers that Tuesday night’s elimination show wouldn’t also make me sad. Going into it, I was pretty sure it would be fine, and not just because Len was reported to be dancing on the show. It also just seemed obvious to me that Chaz would got home. Maybe Nancy. No big loss either way. But was I right?

Here’s where the leader board stood after Monday night’s show:

1. Ricki and Derek - 27

Chaz Bono Dedicates 'Dancing' Performance To Late Dad

October 4th, 2011 2:21pm EDT
Chaz Bono
Cher's son Chaz Bono dedicated his performance on reality show Dancing With The Stars on Monday to his father Sonny Bono as he danced to the late singer's track Laugh At Me.

The transgender star has been showing off his fancy footwork with professional partner Lacey Schwimmer on the TV contest, and danced the rumba this week to the sounds of his beloved dad's voice.

During Monday's program, Bono explained his choice of song had a deeper meaning, saying the tune's message was, "If you have a problem with me, then it's your problem, not mine."

He tells UsMagazine.com, "My dad would have...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Three Pulls Our Heartstrings

October 4th, 2011 9:10am EDT
DWTS Ricki Lake
Every season we get a week with the personal stories, and this season is no different. This week’s theme was the “most memorable year” in our star’s lives. Based on the show’s intro, I went searching for some tissues when the opening credits started.

Here’s how the night went:

Rob Kardashian (reality star) & Cheryl Burke
Dance: Foxtrot
Scores: 8, 8, 8
Len said Rod put the “dash” into Kardashian. I thought he was going to say “dashing”, but ok. He also thought Rob’s footwork and posture were good. Bruno said he liked the way Rob was starting to “play” with Cheryl, and that the...

Pop superstar Cher has offered to give her injured son Chaz Bono a medical boost as he competes on TV show Dancing With The Stars - she's sending him her top doctors.

The transgender star has been showing off his fancy footwork with professional partner Lacey Schwimmer on the TV contest, but revealed last week that he had been struggling with injuries to his knees and ankles during rehearsals for the quickstep.

Bono now reveals the difficulties stem from one particularly complicated step.

He tells UsMagazine.com, "There's a step here that's very easy to miss, and several times I've lan...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week 2 Elimination: Elisabetta Canalis Dances Her Last Dance

September 28th, 2011 8:15am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
It was a mostly lackluster Monday night on "Dancing With The Stars," but that’s bound to happen when you throw a bunch of almost-celebrities together in a position totally out of their comfort zones. Some weeks it just works a lot like herding cats.

Well, that’s probably a little harsh, but the day I start taking this show too seriously, it’s time to stop watching. That time hasn’t come yet, obviously, so last night it was time to sit down and watch all the flashy filler, waiting for the only thing I wanted to hear, who was going home.

Here’s where the leader board stood as of Monday ni...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Performances

Dancing with the Stars Week 2
Last week we rejected World Peace... or Metta, or Ron, or that guy who couldn’t dance, or whatever you want to call him. This week we’re down to eleven contestants, and the show threw two of the hardest dances at them, the jive and the quickstep. Let the dancing newbies start slow and build up, you say? Never!

Hope Solo (goalie for U.S. women’s national soccer team) & Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Dance: Jive
Scores: 6, 7, 6
Len said it was crisp and sharp, but she lost her timing a bit. Bruno said all of her power was not enough, but she had to be precise and accurate too. He said it looked li...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week One Elimination: Ron 'Metta World Peace' Artest Leaves The Dance Floor

Ron 'Metta World Peace' Artest Leaves The Dance Floor
Who gets the boot first on DWTS? That’s the question on the minds of viewers, dancers, and stars alike going into the first elimination of the season. Well, any elimination, really, but the first one is always the worst. It’s the one where the excitement of the new season gives way to the “oh yeah, there’s a sucky part of this too.”

But before we got to the elimination show, we got an hour to “meet the cast”. Highlights included a clip of Chaz admitting he’s scared of Cheryl, Carson excitedly announcing a crush on Maks while trying on Maks’ clothes, and J.R. giving us a glimpse of his ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week One: The Pomp And Flash Begins (Again)

September 20th, 2011 10:00am EDT
Dancing with the Stars Chaz Bono, Lacey Schwimmer
Tuning in to the first night of any season of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ feels a little like the opening night of a circus. There are lots of flashy costumes, drama, and the worry that someone might fall off the high wire or have a lion confuse its tamer for a juicy steak. Only on ‘Dancing’, the fear is more about falling off the high heels or having a “star” confuse their partner with a Twister board.

It’s also the night we get to see if our presumptions about how well certain stars will do are going to go how we want them too. There are obviously late bloomers, but you usually know on n...

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns Hines Ward MVP Of The Ballroom

Dancing With The Stars
Us audience members were officially cut off Tuesday morning. No more voting for "Dancing With The Stars." But the judges still had another set of scores to give on Tuesday’s finale, and we got three hours of show to sit through. Three hours. They had to make up for Monday’s show only being an hour long, I guess.

Luckily the first hour was a repeat, so I don’t have to write five million extra words for a third of the show. Then the opening sequence and voice over for the real show kicked in, and were especially dramatic. That is saying a lot when talking about this show. I a...

Mike Catherwood Says He And Lacey Schwimmer Were 'Romantic Lab Rats' On 'Dancing With The Stars'

Mike Catherwood Lacey Schwimmer Dancing with the Stars
Mike Catherwood, the first celebrity to get axed from Dancing with the Stars, told Jimmy Kimmel that ABC asked him to "tone it down" after he and his professional partner Lacey Schwimmer got a little too sexy.

"How do you tone it down?" Jimmy asked. "Well, you wear more clothes, for one. There's body parts you gotta hide... coming from the world of radio, I'm not used to that." He quipped, "I do my show in the nude."

He then said, "I had bamboo underwear made for me. Let's just say they add compression," while motioning to his groin. "In case there is any unfortunate change in direction....

It's inevitable. One by one, all the contestants on 'Dancing With The Stars' will go home until there is only one left standing. It's no fun for anyone, but for the very first to go, it downright stinks.

Of course, before we kick someone off the dance floor crying (maybe), the first hour of 'Dancing' is the recap hour. I actually really like to rewatch the dances without all the extraneous stuff. And I have to admit that on second watch, yes, I was a little harsh in my criticism of Petra this week. Did I think she had any better a chance going into the elimination show after a rewatch...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Performances Review

March 29th, 2011 8:47am EDT
Romeo and Chelsie Hightower
It's week two of 'Dancing With The Stars', and expectations are high. For some. Ralph Macchio and Kirstie Alley came out on fire last week, and we wanted to see if they can keep up the high standard. Was it luck? A product of the opening night high? I was especially interested in seeing Kirstie, considering I expected utter clumsiness last week. She shocked a lot of people. Can she do it again?

The rest of our stars are... not so heavily anticipated. In fact, Mike Catherwood couldn't get worse. Well, I shouldn't say that. He could fall down this week, or have a nervous bre...

On the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars, we were treated to a handful of surprises. Karate Kid Ralph Macchio started at the top of the competition, and right behind him was... Kirstie Alley!

Meanwhile, fan favorites Kendra Wilkinson and Wendy Williams were on the bottom half - lucky for them, radio personality Mike Catherwood had the worst performance of the night. But let's start at the top:

Ralph Macchio stunned the judges with his foxtrot with partner Karina Smirnoff, set to "Kick in the Head." Judge Len Goodman said the obvious: "You've got great potential... best foxtrot of ...

Lacey Schwimmer whose past celebrity partners have included Lance Bass, Steve-O, Kyle Massey, and Mark Dacascos is ready to take on the 12th season with plans of transforming her 2nd place finish with Massey into ballroom gold with new dance companion Mike Catherwood.

It was rock week on Dancing With The Stars. It was also the first week in which the dancers had to learn two dancers, one individual dance and a competition dance in which they would be scored.

This meant that the competition was getting hotter and tougher. This also meant the votes would mean more than ever when the night ended.

How did the dancers do? Here is brief summary of each dancer’s performance, in order of performance:
