Melissa Rycroft wasn’t much different from a lot of folks in the viewing audience. When Dancing with the Stars was preparing to announce this season’s all-star winner on Tuesday, the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader (and ex-bachelorette) assumed it would go to gymnast Shawn Johnson and three-time winner Derek Hough.
So she was admittedly gobsmacked when her name — and that of her very deserving partner, Tony Dovolani — was called, instead. “When it was our name called, I just went, oh, my gosh, how did this just happen,” she told reporters after the show. “The support behind us the entire season it feels good. I felt the cast was genuinely happy for us. It feels good to have fought hard all season and proven ourselves! READ FULL STORY
Is the Dancing with the Stars golden boy ready to bolt?
The tears that Derek Hough shed during Tuesday’s finale of Dancing with the Stars seemed to indicate that he was mourning more than just the end of the season with Shawn Johnson. Was he preparing to say goodbye to the ABC show that made him a household name?
“I was shocked at how I reacted,” Hough told reporters afterwards. “I was sort of overwhelmed and could barely speak, to be quite honest, because of all the memories of the show and how amazing it is. It was overwhelming. I couldn’t even describe the feeling and I always want to be part of the show in some way. Who knows but …” READ FULL STORY
One of the eliminated contestants on Dancing with the Stars Tuesday said it best after the show: “How much more could I have done?” Not much — except maybe move around the dance floor like a limber ex-gymnast.

Cheryl Burke has given lessons on how to a Paso Doble, so now she’d like to hand out a few red roses.
The Dancing with the Stars pro has made it clear to ABC that, should they be on the lookout for a hot hoofer to headline the network’s female dating franchise, she’d like to apply for the job.
“I did interview with the execs and we’ll see what happens in the future,” Burke told reporters after Monday’s episode. “It’s not a firm offer. It hasn’t been an offer but if they offer it to me, I would love to do it.”
Burke said finding love in Hollywood isn’t so easy for a gal like her. “It sounds crazy but I think I’m just so married to my work and I rarely meet new people. I’ve been around the same people for the last six years. I have maybe a month and a half of down time and all I want to do during that time is be with my family and sleep so it’s hard for me to be introduced to guys. I make the wrong choices. I dated a couple of guys over the summer and it turned out all bad so I figure if someone were to make the choice for me, then maybe I would have a better chance. I would make a choice…out of a pool of men, hopefully there would be one special person.”
Fortunately for Burke, a celebrity is on this season’s all-star to offer advice — former Bachelorette Melissa Rycroft. “I’ll help her weed out the ones who are not worthy,” said Rycroft. “I would say to whoever goes into that role, I don’t think you can necessarily go in and go, I’m going to find my mate, my spouse. Go in saying, this is a new adventure. If it leads me that way, or if it at least gives me a great new relationship, take that.” – With reporting from Carole Gilnes

Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke says she has thyroid cancer. Burke posted a video message Thursday on YouTube disclosing her condition and her plans for surgery to remove her thyroid.
The 41-year-old mother of four says a lump on her thyroid was found during a biopsy. She says in the video that the surgery has been scheduled, but she doesn’t specify when. She says it will leave “a nice big scar right here,” tracing a line across her throat. READ FULL STORY
Somebody’s in a good mood!
Three weeks after he and Bristol Palin were sent packing, Mark Ballas came off the bench Monday to dance with his season 8 partner Shawn Johnson — and earned a perfect 30 for serving as a stand-in for the injured Derek Hough.
“I just felt really good,” Ballas told reporters afterwards. “All week it’s been feeling good. I’ve danced with Shawn before and we’ve been friends for a long time and I grew up with this guy [gesturing to Hough].”
“Mark was laughing because it was Wednesday and he’s like, ‘man, I haven’t felt this good on a Wednesday for a long time!'” quipped Hough.
“Let’s not go there!” Ballas replied. (No, let’s!) “All week for me I knew this was going to be fun and I just wanted to go out and not stress and it’s amazing to be dancing with Shawn again.” READ FULL STORY
The all-star edition of Dancing with the Stars has certainly produced more than its fair share of surprises, starting with the decision to invite Bristol Palin back to compete and outlast better performers like Helio Castroneves, Drew Lachey and Joey Fatone. Unfortunately, the shockers kept coming on Tuesday when another high-scoring hoofer was sent packing. For the all-star’s parting words, head to the jump. READ FULL STORY
A troubled ex-lover, drug addiction and country music don’t really scream rumba time but that didn’t stop Sabrina Bryan from combining the disparate worlds during Monday’s installment of Dancing with the Stars. The Cheetah Girl earned a perfect 30 with partner Louis van Amstel while dancing to Hunter Hayes’ “Wanted” while remembering an old boyfriend.
“It was incredible,” Bryan told reporters afterwards. “This dance was something that I was so nervous to do and I didn’t know what really they were going to add into the package. I told them about my own personal experience and it’s hard to let things like that happen and let things out there for people to judge or whatever. I was nervous but more than anything I was excited to do this dance with Louis because he’s such an incredible teacher and I was so excited learning this dance.” READ FULL STORY
It’s official: Gilles Marini not only has the power to blow away the ladies, he can knock them out of their seats. During Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, the actor’s performance with Peta Murgatroyd was so steamy that a breathless Carrie Ann Inaba exclaimed, “Let the babymaking begin!” before toppling to the floor.
Before you start thinking Inaba has turned into a lechy cougar, it was Marini who suggested that his performance could make he and his partner “responsible for a lot of babies.” The French-American actor managed to pull it off, too, earning a 29.5 for his sexy rumba danced to “I Will Always Love You.” (Even his gun holster looked hot in the dance that was a homage to Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard).
But Marini didn’t expect his number to deliver such a knock-out blow to the judges — or one in particular.
“I’m like, gosh, she got hurt!” he told reporters after Monday’s show. “As the firefighter that I used to be I just picked her up.” READ FULL STORY
UPDATE: Dancing with the Stars all-star contestant Melissa Rycroft did perform on tonight’s broadcast after suffering an on-set injury Sunday.
She was hospitalized after hurting her head and neck while planning out camera blocking for Monday night’s performance show with dance partner Tony Dovolani.
Earlier today, ABC released this statement: “We can confirm Melissa was diagnosed with a disc herniation at the C4-C5 level of her cervical spine. At this time, Melissa’s ability to perform in tonight’s show will be a show time decision.”
Rycroft, a former contestant on The Bachelor, is competing against Shawn Johnson, Gilles Marini, Kelly Monaco, Emmitt Smith, Sabrina Bryan, Apolo Ohno and Kirstie Alley for the mirror ball trophy. Five all-stars (Bristol Palin, Helio Castroneves, Drew Lachey, Joey Fatone and Pamela Anderson) have already been eliminated this season.
