'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'I am not leaving this show bitter or angry'

For many celebrities who participate on Dancing with the Stars, making it beyond the halfway point is an accomplishment in itself. But when an exit is predicated by some particularly harsh words from the judges, leaving the ABC show can feel pretty bittersweet. READ FULL STORY

Len Goodman on 'Dancing With the Stars' feud with Maks: 'You can't be a judge at your own trial' -- VIDEO

Dancing With the Stars head judge Len Goodman has taken to Access Hollywood to address longtime professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s claim on Monday night that the celebrities on DWTS are judged on their “so-called potential” instead of the performance of the night.

“How often, in the heat of the moment, we say things where we think why did I say that? I think Maks is going through one of those period right now,” Goodman said.

“What they have to understand is: They’re on trial. We’re the judges,” Goodman clarified. “You can’t be the judge at your own trial.”

On Monday night, after Len called Hope Solo’s rumba her worst dance of the season, he said Maks was to blame for half of that and reminded the pro that he’s been in this business for 50 years. “Maybe it’s time to get out,” Maks shot back.

'Dancing with the Stars': Maks Chmerkovskiy blows up at judges, claims 'this is my show'

Does Dancing with the Stars belong to Maksim Chmerkovskiy?

That seemed to be the pro’s perspective on Monday after he and Judge Len Goodman butted heads over the quality of his rumba with Hope Solo. (It earned a mere 20 out of 30). After Goodman called it their “worst dance of the season,” Chmerkovskiy lost his cool: First he suggested that “maybe it’s time” for Goodman to leave the business after the elder judge talked about being in it for 50 years, and then the hot pro got downright indignant when Carrie Ann Inaba chided him for being disrespectful.

'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'When they played the montage, it was like I died!'

Carson Kressley may not have always earned the highest scores, but he certainly delivered the biggest laughs on Dancing with the Stars this fall. Too bad the guy who kept the judges and his fellow celebrities in stitches didn’t last to see another day under the mirror ball: Kressley, whose jive with Anna Trebunskaya: was called “a crowning achievement in madness” on Monday, became the latest contestant to live Dancing with the Stars.

'Dancing with the Stars': J.R. Martinez, who 'doesn't know how to be sexy,' earns his first 10

Karina Smirnoff had to crack the whip on J.R. Martinez to get him into sexy mode for Dancing with the Stars Monday, but her actions paid off big time: The always consistent pair pulled their highest score of the season with a 28 (two 9s and their first 10) for a samba to Gloria Estefan’s “Conga.”

Carrie Ann Inaba called it “friggin’ amazing.”

“It’s funny, she kept telling me, ‘Be sexy here! Be masculine!’ and I would do something and she’s like, ‘That’s not sexy! That’s
not masculine!'” Martinez — whose first initials stand for Jose Rene — told reporters afterwards. “And I was like, ‘I don’t know how to be sexy!’  I really don’t. It’s not my thing.  I don’t think I’m a sexy and masculine type of guy, but tonight, it was fun. “It’s great to be on top, but the fact that we got our first 10 of the season was really cool.” READ FULL STORY

'Two and a Half Men' comes down to earth, 'Dancing with the Stars' trips

The hype over Ashton Kutcher and Two and A Half Men has finally settled down and the ratings are starting to show it: The sitcom posted a 5.8 rating/13 share and 15.8 million viewers on Monday — down 7% to its lowest rated episode this season, according to early results. But hey, the competition should be so lucky to report such “dips” in the ratings: CBS still won the night in the key 18-49 demo (3.9/9), even though all of its comedies — and one drama — posted season lows. How I Met Your Mother earned a 3.9/11 and 8.9 million, followed by 2 Broke Girls (4.2/10, 10.5 million), Mike & Molly (4.0/9, 11.7 million) and Hawaii Five-0 (2.6/6, 9.7 million). READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars': Ricki Lake earns some 10s ... and feels like an idiot at the same time

Ricki Lake scored this season’s first set of 10s on Dancing with the Stars Monday, but the talk show host was kicking herself for muttering something during rehearsal that ended up into Monday’s video package.

While practicing the paso doble to the Psycho theme, Lake got so frustrated with herself that she whined, “I want to quit, like I totally want to quit.” After her performance with partner Derek Hough earned a 29 from the judges, Lake expressed regret afterwards for breaking down at practice.

'Dancing with the Stars': Cher was there! (Not that Chaz Bono noticed)

All eyes may have been focused on Cher — who lived up to the hype by finally attending a taping of Dancing with the Stars Monday — but Chaz Bono wasn’t among those ogling the diva who was positioned next to David Arquette’s daughter.

In fact, Bono kept his attention off his family, including stepmother Mary Bono, who was also in the house. “When we’re dancing I try to just focus on [Lacey] and what we’re doing,” said Bono, who performed a Rocky-themed paso doble with partner Lacey Schwimmer that earned a standing ovation from a teary-eyed Cher. “It was great to have everyone here. It pumped me up. I know my mom was really proud of me and that was awesome. I’m glad that whatever we’re doing is touching people. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'Maybe my story didn't help!'

Good news for those amateur hoofers who end up at bottom of the leaderboard each week: You’re not always the most obvious target for elimination. No where was that more apparent than during Tuesday’s results episode of Dancing with the Stars, when one of the B (C? D?) Listers who earned a middle-of-the-pack score on Monday ended up having to pack a bag on Tuesday. (Way to dodge a bullet, Chaz!)

'H8R': Who could hate 'Dancing With the Stars' pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

This blonde woman, apparently! And many more….

EW has obtained an exclusive clip of tomorrow’s episode of H8R (8 p.m. ET on The CW), in which Maks serves food to a woman who already hates him. “Women like tongue,” he urges her as she glares at him in disgust. “You’ve never had tongue in your mouth?”

I feel like he should have just gone with the house specialty — “Sex on a Stick” — instead. It was probably too difficult, despite all those years of ballroom training, to fit himself on a platter. Watch it here: READ FULL STORY

J.R. Martinez talks war wounds on 'Dancing with the Stars': 'I never cried in front of that many people'

War vet-turned-soap star J.R. Martinez earned one of the longest standing ovations in recent memory on Dancing with the Stars Monday when he opened up about the severe injuries he sustained while stationed in Iraq.

As part of personal story week, the All My Children star explained how he suffered burns to 40% of his body in 2003 after his Humvee hit a landmine while serving as an Army infantryman. His emotional story was followed by a moving rumba with partner Karina Smirnoff — which prompted a teary-eyed Carrie Ann Inaba to say “you touched us all.” READ FULL STORY

Hope Solo on her 'Dancing with the Stars' cha cha: 'I am sexy' (though Maks made her say it!)

Judging from the rehearsal package on Dancing with the Stars Monday, getting soccer star Hope Solo to bring her sexy back was like pulling teeth for partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy. But, come show time, the pro soccer player brought it big time by wearing a sexpot outfit and performing a very sassy move (at least for her): She lifted her dress! “This was totally her,” Chmerkovskiy told reporters afterwards. “I just said to do something sexy and she did it.”

Though their number earned 24 out of 30 points, Judge Len Goodman still called it too provocative. “Let’s all be honest here,” Solo said after the show. “I like to wear sweats and hooded sweatshirts. My sexiness is different than what the judges want to see. I have my confidence and I have my confidence in what I do. But this is not what I do.” READ FULL STORY
