J.R. Martinez on 'Dancing with the Stars': 'The lift was a scary thing'

J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff knew they had to go for broke in their freestyle dance Monday, so they planned a salsa-inspired freestyle with lots of flashy tricks — namely, one that required the soap star to jump over his petite partner and straddle her neck. Ouch!

And yet, even after Smirnoff was seen looking stressed and spent in those rehearsal clips, the pair performed the manuever perfectly on Dancing with the Stars — enough to earn them a 30. READ FULL STORY

Rob Kardashian on 'Dancing with the Stars': 'I definitely wasn't a dancer... until doing this show'

Rob Kardashian finally got a chance to experience what perfection is supposed to feel like on Dancing with the Stars: On Monday, he and partner Cheryl Burke earned their first 30 this season with a freestyle dance. Even sister Kim was on hand to witness her brother’s personal triumph.

“I can’t believe it still. I cannot!” he told reporters after the show. “I did not expect to get a perfect score tonight at all, especially with the freestyle, which is the most important dance. So, super happy, shocked, and just excited, really on a good cloud right now.” READ FULL STORY

Ricki Lake on 'Dancing with the Stars' finale: I don't want to let Derek down!

If Derek Hough’s fans rally, the young pro could earn a record-breaking fourth mirror ball from Dancing with the Stars. After all, he’s never lost the championship when he made it to the top 3 — a stat that isn’t lost on his current partner Ricki Lake.

“Oh God I don’t want to be the one that lets him down,” Lake told reporters after Monday’s show. “But truthfully, I have done everything I came here to do. I’ve gotten my body into better shape than probably ever in my life. I feel like I’ve learned these beautiful dances to the best of my ability. I did a mean freestyle tonight, so I have nothing to be sorry about or unhappy about. Those guys, if one of them wins, then they were the ones that deserve it. I am so happy for all of us.” READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars': Is Maks feuding with Carrie Ann now?


Seems like that tension between the judges and Maksim Chmerkovskiy hasn’t entirely fizzled on Dancing with the Stars. During Monday’s performance episode of the ABC show, Carrie Ann Inaba was explaining how the couple’s Argentine tango lacked fluidity when she singled out a suspicious look on Chmerkovskiy’s face. “You can smile like that Maks, it’s okay,” she quipped sarcastically.

A confused Chmerkovksiy replied by saying, “it’s nothing to do with me.”

Afterwards, Hope Solo tried to offer an explanation to Brooke Burke in the celebratorium. “Maks is smiling because we should be smiling! So Carrie Ann, thank you. Maks is smiling. This is my partner. Finally, we’re happy!”

Huh? What the heck was that all about, Maks? READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'I prepare for the worst'

Sad? Naturally! But the latest dancer to leave the ballroom of Dancing with the Stars wasn’t going to whine about missed opportunities or the chance to make it to the finals.

She was too busy praising her partner, who only became a pro this season. READ FULL STORY

Nancy Grace on Conrad Murray: 'He and Casey Anthony can have a tea party in four years'

Nancy Grace may have donned her ballroom best on Monday but she was eager to shed the sequins after the show to address the day’s big news: The conviction of Michael Jackson’s doctor for involuntary manslaughter.

Unfortunately, the HLN anchor couldn’t return to her day job and comment on the case outside of the Los Angeles courtroom Monday; she had a tango and an instant jive to perform that night, after all. (Her routines earned a 24 and a 20, the lowest scores of the night.) But Grace still had some thoughts to share about Dr. Conrad Murray after the show. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars': Hope and Maks 'hit the reset button'

Is the Cold War finally over?

On Monday’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, Hope Solo told Brooke Burke that she and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy “hit the reset button” to become a “new and improved team.” What did that involve, exactly? Well, there was an apology from the pro for “being totally rough” last week, followed by a trip home to meet the parents who revealed that the Ukrainian-American hunk was a mama’s boy who used to cry a lot.

'Dancing with the Stars' eliminated contestant: 'People got to know me'

Maksim Chmerkovskiy, you got served!

No, the hot-headed Ukrainian American wasn’t booted off Dancing with the Stars after generating headlines for his row with Judge Len Goodman and his behavior toward his partner. But he was royally teased on national TV Tuesday by the latest contestant to leave the show – and boy did the moment generate a lot of laughs.

'Terra Nova' ratings drop on Halloween night

Fox’s Terra Nova ratings got spooked on Halloween night, falling more than any other broadcast show after spending a week off the air due to baseball coverage.

Terra Nova returned to 6.4 million viewers and a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, down 25 percent compared to its last original airing. (Bummer — some say it was the show’s best episode, recap here.) Given that Terra Nova airs at 8 p.m. and is targeted toward families, it was probably the most likely series to take a punch.

And Terra Nova wasn’t the only show to take a holiday night hit in the ratings — pretty much every series was down, except… READ FULL STORY

'Dancing with the Stars': Did the show get back at angry Maks?

One week after Maksim Chmerkovskiy challenged Judge Len Goodman on Dancing with the Stars, the ABC show seemed to have the last word on the popular (though often controversial) pro. Two of the rehearsal packages during Monday’s show were edited to make Chmerkovskiy look like an unyielding and very impatient instructor who’s reduced to striking partner Hope Solo in an effort to make a point.

To wit: While Chmerkovskiy and Solo were practicing with Team Paso Doble, the Ukrainian-American pro slapped the soccer player on the shoulders before frantically whipping her around. An exasperated Solo responded by saying, “would you stop being you?”

Chmerkovskiy then left the rehearsal hall, leaving teammate Derek Hough to instruct Solo, instead. READ FULL STORY

'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.
