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 ...

What 'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Lacked – Unpredictability

May 26th, 2010 11:07am EDT
Erin Andrews
“Dancing With The Stars” is a great idea for a television show – get a handful of some famous faces, pair them with professional dancers and dress them up in sparkly outfits while they get harsh criticism filled with double entendres. As season 10 came to a close last night, it’s clear that audiences have really grown to love this formula as the show’s ratings top the juggernaut that is “American Idol”.

However, here’s one complaint – the celebrities with the dancing experience always place the highest! Ok so DWTS is a show based around competitive dancing. It’s like the free market where ...

Kristi Yamaguchi 'Emotional' After Break-In

August 18th, 2008 2:53pm EDT
Kristi Yamaguchi
Kristi Yamaguchi is devastated after priceless items were stolen from her trailer during a recent stop on the Dancing With The Stars tour across the U.S.

The Olympic champion figure skater - who won the 2008 series of the TV dance competition - left her valuables in a van, shared by her co-stars Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, while visiting in Roseville, Minnesota to take part in a cancer benefit. Thieves reportedly took passports, diaries, photos and thousands of dollars worth of electronics during the break-in on Saturday.

Yamaguchi says: "I feel so bad. These guys (the dancers)...

'Dancing With The Stars': Will Kristi Take The Trophy Home?

May 20th, 2008 8:34am EDT
Kristi Yamaguchi
Wow, we're already at the finale! Kristi Yamaguchi, Jason Taylor, and Cristian de la Fuente are the final three, and tonight we decide who wins. Last night we had a freestyle round and a cha-cha to the death!

I'm still not certain how Cristian made it into the "Dancing With The Stars" finals, but I can't really think of anyone else to be there *cough* Shannon Elizabeth *cough* so they've got as much of a shot at winning as the other two couples. We've made it this far, let's take it home.

The Cha-cha

Cristian still had his injury to deal with; Jason wanted to get over his aw...

'Dancing With The Stars' Semifinals: Will Kristi Go All The Way?

May 13th, 2008 9:08am EDT
Kristi Yamaguchi
Mario and his perpetually glaring partner Karina are history, which leave only four couples on "Dancing With The Stars." Somehow Cristian's injury has made him a better dancer, and now the winner is anyone's guess. Tonight is the final elimination before the finale so last night's dance might have been the most important night of the competition. The dances were chosen by chance, so a little extra drama will come into play.

Jason and Edyta

Jason bombed last week so he really needed to step up to make it to next week. They did the fox trot and the paso doble this week, the first of wh...

'Dancing With The Stars': Marissa Is Probably Going Home Tonight

Marissa Jaret Winokur
Happy Cinco De Mayo Samantha Harris! We're down to the final five, and with only three weeks to go things are about to take a serious turn. Shannon and Derek are gone, but I will solider on for you loyal readers. I've got my judging cap on, so let's get to the dancing.

Kristi and Mark

Kristi took a nose dive down to fourth place last week and wanted to do a lift in their samba. Mark was against it since it isn't in the character of the dance. She wanted to get back on top and was thrilled to do a lift in the quick step. Mark wanted to get tens without using tricks

'Dancing With The Stars': Dull Dancing, An Injury & More

Dancing With The Stars
Sniff, Marlee is gone. No really I'm ok, I swear. Well, six couples remain on "Dancing With The Stars." Kristy has it in the bag still, but things can change. Last night each couple had two dances that were judged by the terrible trio of judges. Will this week seal the fate of the weaker competitors (I'm looking at you Marissa) or will everything change? Tom and Samantha prepped us, and we're ready to go. Quick note, I'm preserving my sanity by listing both dances together, otherwise this would be a mess to read.

Marissa and Tony

We're reminded that last week Marissa had her best sco...

Shannon Elizabeth
This week on "Dancing With The Stars" there is the usual introduction fluff. Each couple has their own dance and some sort of country dance so let's not waste time and jump right in then, shall we? Oh, and Samantha is looking beautiful as usual.

Jason and Edyta- The cha cha

We've got Jason near the top of the dancing heap, and this week Edyta takes Jason to hip-hop school where I wanted to go for summer camp but alas, space camp was where I ended up. Jason is set to show Len he can dance. Starting with a jump off the stairs Jason has embraced his dancing destiny and is keeping up wit...

'Dancing With The Stars': If Anyone Can Beat Kristi, It's Jason

Kristi Yamaguchi
Adam Carolla is gone and Julianne is breathing a sigh of relief to finally be done on "Dancing With The Stars." This week we'll be watching the samba and the rumba, with Samantha Harris trying her best to not seem disappointed that her career has taken her here. Hang in there Sam!

Mario and Karina- Samba

Karina seems defeated, and Mario needs an ego boost. They go to meet Stevie Wonder, since his being blind might help Mario do well...it works for Marlee. Will his newfound confidence drive him to the top? Well, so far the promise of this being the sexiest night of dancing has been a ...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week 4: Adam Carolla To Be Sent Packing?

April 8th, 2008 9:27am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
Dancing With The Stars hosts Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris are back to try my patience while nine couples get to dance their way into my heart with the paso doble and the waltz! Shall we begin? Wait. Before we begin, did you know Samantha Harris has a journalism degree from Northwestern where she graduated with honors? So join me in starting a new movement to actually be nice to Samantha. Ok, now we can begin.

Kristi and Mark- Paso doble

Kristi has learned to open up, probably to get three 10s. Will she show passion? They are both incredibly sexy together, so if they can communica...

'Dancing With The Stars': Week 3

Marlee Matlin
We're down to the final 10. Buckle up, we've got an hour and a half of this!

Marlee and Fabian - Jive

She has a Hallmark movie on CBS in a few weeks, and I bet she plays a deaf woman. Marlee looks extra hot tonight, though, and the dancing is fantastic. She is in league with Kristy as one of the best dancers on the show. I'm predicting she'll be in the final three. Len says she never ceases to amaze him, Bruno is not as enthusiastic, and Carrie Ann is starting to get nitpicky, telling Marlee to be careful with her hands.

My Score- 8

Carrie Ann- 7

Len- 7

Bruno- 7

The First Two Couples Eliminated From 'Dancing With The Stars'

March 26th, 2008 9:23am EDT
Dancing With The Stars
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Magician Penn Jillette and tennis champ Monica Seles were the first stars eliminated from the sixth season of ABC's ''Dancing With the Stars.'' Each came into Tuesday's results show in last place.

Jillette, 53, added a dash of magic to his quickstep, but his footwork failed to impress the judges. Despite his dismissal, the magician insisted that he and his professional partner would continue to rehearse daily and planned to perform in the parking lot. ''There's no way my dance career ends now,'' he said.

Before her name was announced, Seles said being the first ...

'Dancing With The Stars': Music Ranges From Annoying To Jam-A-Pen-In-My-Ears Terrible

March 25th, 2008 9:05am EDT
Mario
Here we are, week number two of 39. I'm going to be glossing over all the filler because honestly nobody wants to sit through it, so why give them the satisfaction of writing about it? So here is week two, written as I watch it.

Steve Guttenberg and Anna - Mambo

Anna brought her mom to rehearsals, and it was only slightly awkward to learn her mom is as old as Steve. She gave Steve some great advice though about enjoying the dance. Let's see if he can translate that to his dancing. First off, the music they pick for these dances ranges from mildly annoying to jam-a-pen-in-my-ears horr...

'Dancing with the Stars' Premiere Part 2: Ladies Night

March 19th, 2008 9:18am EDT
Dancing With The Stars competitor Shannon Elizabeth
On Tuesday's episode of "Dancing With The Stars" they started out by reintroducing the competitors, for the three of you who didn't watch Monday night. At least we didn't have to sit through another random dancing scene, but I was left wondering what they're going to do to fill time - clips from Monday night, of course.

I noticed Steve Guttenberg got 666, creepy. Since I have the mutant power to remember what happened Monday night I started to zone out a bit. Len was in a good mood the night before, but apparently he was grumpy on Tuesday. Good thing he is professional enough to let u...

Week 1 'Dancing With The Stars' Pre-Show Interview With Jason Taylor

March 18th, 2008 9:17am EDT
Jason Taylor
Starpulse had the opportunity to chat with Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor about his stint on the latest season of Dancing With The Stars, how it compares to football, and who he thinks is his biggest competition.

How did your involvement in this season's competition come about?

I’m asking myself the same question - all I know is my agent presented it to me, started selling me on it and between him and my wife, the next thing you know I’m living in LA!

How is training for the competition different then training for a football season?

It’s actually more grueling fro...
