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

dwts-maks-hope

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

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.

'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.

'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
