Shocker on 'Dancing with the Stars' results show

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

Who saw THIS coming? In an unbelievable turn of events, Shannen Doherty was sent packing on tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" results show. This is just nuts. That means Kate Gosselin and Buzz Aldrin, pretty much the odds-on favorites for a speedy exit, will return to dance another night.

Doherty scored an impressive 20 points Monday night for her playful jive, giving her a two-week total of 38 out of a possible 60 points. That put her "safely" in the middle of the leaderboard pack. But, as this show has proven so many times, those with solid fan bases will eclipse better dancers when it comes to elimination.

The evening started out with complete shock and awe as the first couple slated for possible elimination turned out to be Pamela Anderson and her partner Damian Whitewood. You could have heard a pin drop; even host Tom Bergeron fell silent and "dead air" loomed large for a few seconds that seemed like an eternity. Of course, that was coupled with the news that Buzz Aldrin, who finished last the night before (and the week before that), would be safe to continue on in the competition. The Cloris Leachman effect lives on!

As for tonight's concert performance by the, uhm, "Beach Boys" (or what miserably passes these days for the iconic band), suffice it to say that it was one of the worst live acts ever to play the ballroom. Their off-key solos and off-pitch harmonies were an embarassment. For those of you who don't know who the Beach Boys were, invest in some serious iTunes downloading of "Endless Summer" to wash tonight's horrible music moment out of your mind.

'Dancing with the Stars' scoring system needs some work

| 7 Comments | No TrackBacks

Tonight's episode of "Dancing with the Stars" proved one thing: The judges need some serious retooling of how they judge. There's no way that Kate Gosselin's dismal attempt at a jive (filled with missteps and forgotten steps and terrible arm positions) warranted the same "5s" that the judges only moments earlier awarded to Chad Ochocinco for his more than passable fox trot. What gives?

I think that if the judges are going to continue to score people and then have that score rank each couple's standings on the leaderboard, then they --- Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli--- need to keep in mind how their scores at the moment relate to the scores they've already doled out. This isn't rocket science. An "8" should be an "8" and reflect an "8" performance; a "5" should reflect a "5" performance, and so forth.

There also was way too much drama tonight in the form of constant bickering and tears and whining among the couples during rehearsal week. While it was funny at times, it also was a downer. As Gosselin pointed out (she and Tony Dovolani had perhaps the worst falling out), it was 30 seconds out of a week's worth of footage. Get over it.

There really was no "wow" moment tonight, which has never been the case in the show. There's always one couple that really, REALLY makes a statement. Again, maybe it was all the bickering that interrupted whatever momentum the show had going for it.

The most perplexing comment of the night came at the onset of the show when host Tom Bergeron blurted out that had the first elimination occurred after last week's performances, it would have been an "upset" of a departure. Since Buzz Aldrin earned last week's lowest score from the judges, and the Internet was buzzing all week with speculation that Gosselin was perhaps done for, could it be that someone ELSE was headed for the door? And just who was that, Tom? If the comment was made, then the scoring (including viewers' votes) should have been revealed. The tease was rather juvenile.

Gotta hand it to Bergeron, though, for the evening's most provocative and decidedly awkward comment. Just after Pamela Anderson finished channeling Marilyn Monroe for her upbeat fox trot, the host quipped, "I don't know what [the judges] have to say, but a busload of Kennedys just pulled up."

Too much weird stuff going on tonight. Tomorrow's elimination could be a stunner. I'm banking on Gosselin hanging up her dancing shoes.

Stay tuned.


After viewing Nicole Scherzinger and partner Derek Hough huff and puff their way through a funky jive, I think that "Dancing with the Stars" should seriously consider providing their judging panel with a tiny monitor to review the performances before they reveal their scores. I have no idea why Nicole Scherzinger's jive warranted two perfect '10s' considering she had a few missteps and seemed to be a bit flatfooted in a few other places during the lively routine. Or so it seemed from my TV vantage point.

That she is a great dancer is not the issue (she is); that judges are constantly missing some critical footwork gaffes is getting on my nerves. The judges have only one vantage point (as they do in professional competitions), and maybe the time has come to rely on instant replay.

And how could Carrie Ann tell Aiden that last week he "was trying too hard" considering the soap star hardly danced at ALL while his partner Edyta danced around him? Maybe the judges need to review highlights of the previous week's show prior to air time to give them just a little reminder of what transpired?

Drama in the 'Dancing with the Stars' ballroom

Wow. The sneak peeks at the week's rehearsals showed just how frustrating dancing can be. Or, maybe someone just opened up a big ol' can of crankypants before tonight's show! A glimpse at the rehearsal footage showed us a side of Edyta Sliwinska we'd not yet seen! (I'll bet you didn't think there was one.) The sexy dancer walked out on her partner Aiden Turner when the two just couldn't see eye to eye during a difficult routine. Drama reigned supreme. Jake Pavelka was a wee bit curt with his partner Chelsie Hightower when he decided he was through trying to dance a transition HER way. OUCH.

Still to come... does Tony Dovolani really walk out on Kate Gosselin during THEIR rehearsals? Stay tuned.

Chicago shout-out: It was pretty cool that the show aired some footage of Evan Lysacek's visit to Naperville (his home town) for "Evan Lysacek Day" last week.

Gosselin has visions of Tony Dovolani dancing in her head

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Kate Gosselin is blogging (http://blogs.discovery.com/kate/) her stint on "Dancing with the Stars" for TLC (surprise!). In her entry today, she confesses that her dancing has become all life-consuming, so much so that she's even dreaming about pro partner Tony Dovolani and his dance routines. The celebrity mom just turned 35 on Sunday, and by all reports she was in La-La land ensconced in rehearsals for tonight's competition. She'll need every minute of rehearsal time if she wants to overcome her less-than spectacular debut last week (she scored a mere 16 points, coming in third to last ahead of "AMC's" Aiden Turner and astronaut Buzz Aldrin). Already the buzz has her departing the show tomorrow night. Ouch!

So here's the entertainment rundown for the first results show of the season airing Tuesday night on ABC (in which one couple will be eliminated): It's the Beach Boys in a medley of their greatest hits! Go surfer dudes! And as an added treat, "honorary Boy" John Stamos will be sitting in on guitar and drums. You may recall that Stamos sang vocals on "Forever" with the the rest of the Boys back in 1992 on the album "Summer in Paradise."

The Macy's "Stars of Dance" segment will feature Haitian dancers in a special tribute to the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. Following the performance, you can log on to ABC.com's "Hope for Haiti" site to donate funds to the charity.

Also on tap Tuesday night, the pros will perform a ballroom fusion routine by Michael Jackson's choreographer, Travis Payne.


The quotables poured forth like good red wine on tonight's "Dancing with the Stars" premiere, so much so that I just had to reminisce:

Erin Andrews to Maksim Chmerkovskiy, upon meeting him for the first time: " I asked for Tony [Dovolani]."

Buzz Aldrin, describing his thoughts upon meeting his partner Ashley Costa for the first time: "This is a really cute babe."

Nicole ("Pussycat Doll") Scherzinger describing her amazement at the difference between her style of dancing and ballroom dance: "It's a far cry from chest pumps and booty dips."

Host Tom Bergeron, waxing poetically about Edyta's, fringe-festooned costume, or, uhm, the usual lack of fabric: "We're one gust of wind away from an FCC fine."

Len Goodman to Aiden Turner who pretty much stood around while Edyta danced around him: "You were just standing their shaking your wobbly bits." (Oh those wacky Brits!)

Tom Bergeron to judge Len Goodman, following the head judge's harsh criticism of Buzz Aldrin's cha cha: "How's that British space program?"

Bruno Tonioli to Kate Gosselin and Tony Dovolani after their less-than perfect Viennese waltz: "It looked like Tony was pushing a shopping cart around out there."

'Dancing with the Stars' new season hits high, low notes

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

So the premiere is over, and what did we learn tonight?
I must admit, tonight's cast was surprising and disappointing for so many reasons.

Nicole Scherzinger, to the judges' surprise, emerged as the one-to-watch, displaying positively gorgeous style and polish in her Viennese waltz with Derek Hough. Hmmm. It couldn't possibly be all the thousands of hours she's been dancing entire life? If one more celeb with dancing experiences says that their training never prepared them for ballroom... She has set quite a high bar for the rest of the pack.

At the other end of the spectrum, astronaut Buzz Aldrin proved that not every senior is a Cloris Leachman. He is a true American hero, but as the judges pointed out, he danced like he still had his moon boots on. A welcome sight was his very slimmed-down pro partner Ashley (DelGrosso) Costa. She was the consummate pro out there, slowing down as needed to keep the pace with Aldrin as best she could. His score of 14 might be way too much to overcome next week.

Niecy Nash surprised everyone with her sizzling cha cha! Rock on. Bruno and Len pretty much hated it, but then, they also thought Jake Pavelka's waltz was great.

Which brings us to "Bachelor" Pavelka. Not much twinkle in those toes as far as I'm concerned. Partner Chelsie Hightower looked positively smitten with him. Sigh. But he did manage to get a score of 20, which puts him in a great spot in the pack heading into week 2.

Erin Andrews and her mile-long legs were the perfect match for Maks Chmerkovskiy, and their cha cha wowed both the audience and the judges, especially Len Goodman who called her a "funky monkey."

Evan Lysacek and his partner Anna Trebunskaya had about as much chemistry out there as Kate Gosselin and her ex. Somebody tell them the Cold War ended decades ago! His Viennese waltz was much more graceful than Jake's, but still, for an Olympic figure skating gold medalist, Carrie Ann was right, he needs to connect with the audience and not just "skate past."

Chad Ochocinco and partner Cheryl Burke kicked things off on a fiesty note with their groovin' cha cha, as the 6-time Pro-Bowler proved he's got plenty of moves both on and and off the field.

Which brings us to Shannen Doherty and her Viennese waltz tribute to her proud papa seated in the audience, as he recovers from a stroke. It was the night's most emotional moment; but she needs to move past all the personal stuff if she wants to continue on. Her moves proved to stiff for the judges who awarded her an 18.

And talk about a major league faux pas! What was Edyta Sliwinska thinking with her lousy choreography for "All My Children" hunk Aiden Turner? Sliwinska's biggest downfall in the past has been her uncanny ability to forget the choreography is not about her, but about her partner. She managed to twirl and strut and kick and flip and dive and bend as Aiden stood there providing her with a spray-tanned background. Aiden was promptly rewarded with a 14 for, well, um, not doing very much dancing.

The two most anticipated dancers of the night, Kate Gosselin and Pam Anderson were saved for the end of night one of competition. Gosselin was surprisingly not too good, with moves that were very rigid and not very polished. She and Tony Dovolani earned a 16.

Pam Anderson proved she's still got it, and nobody but nobody can work their hair better than she can. Kudos to Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno for their HIGHlarious turn at mimicking Anderson's tress finesse when they revealed their scores. La Pam walked away with a 21 for the night. Not too shabby.

'Bachelor Jake' charms the ballroom

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Did Jake Pavelka gift the entire ballroom with roses? Was it just me, or was his Viennese waltz just clod-like? I don't know why judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba were blown away by some of the worst waltzing I can remember in ballroom history. Was it just me, or did he not let pro partner Chelsie Hightowner slip out of his grasp at the end of the dance? Not one judge apparently noticed.

'Dancing with the Stars' season ten off and running

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

So it's a mere 40 minutes into season 10 of "Dancing with the Stars" and already I'm shaking my head. Not at the lineup. But at some of the changes in the way the show is played out.

For starters, what's with the "dumbing down" of the judges' scoring? Do we really need the video chart blasting out their names and their scores and, ta-da.... the total? And if someone thought it was a good idea, perhaps a different format that doesn't look so cheesy might be more appropriate? Note to ABC: It really doesn't make the scoring any more cool.

My biggest pet peeve already is the new "celebriquarium" otherewise known as the new front-of-house "backstage" where the rest of the pack waits and watches as the competitors dance below. They just stand there in a line at the back of the house, then turn in unison to face the camera and the couple that has just danced as they go about their banter with new co-host Brooke Burke. Again, who thought this was a good idea? Maybe it will grow on me yet.

Not.

'American Idol' switches schedule this week

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

It's still girls vs. boys on "American Idol" -- just the other way around.

The 10 female semifinalists were scheduled to perform on "Idol" Tuesday and the 10 male singer Wednesday night, but unspecified "medical issues" with former Chicago musician Crystal Bowersox is causing a slight schedule change. Switch it: The men will sing at 8 p.m. Tuesday, the women 8 p.m. Wednesday.

The results show is still 8 p.m. Thursday, in which former finalist Danny Gokey performs his new single and two current semifinalists will be cut.

030310idol.jpg

UPDATE: Us is reporting that Bowersox was hospitalized Tuesday, and the LA Times says it's possibly related to diabetes.

But while an "Idol" insider insists the Wednesday night show -- and Bowersox -- will go on, the NY Times cites "Idol" executive producer Ken Warwick saying she might miss tonight's performance, as well:

Mr. Warwick said that Ms. Bowersox had "a condition that we know about," but did not say what the condition was. He added that if she missed the show on Wednesay, she would all but certainly be eliminated.

"If you're in the Olympics," Mr. Warwick said, "and you're going for the semi-final, for the final, if you don't turn up, you don't get straight through to the final."

On Tuesday night's show, host Ryan Seacrest gave Bowersox, 24 and a mother of one, a shout-out: "Crystal, if you're watching, we hope you feel better very, very soon."

UPDATE AT 7:02 P.M.: Bowersox was the last of the ladies introduced to perform as "American Idol" kicked off Wednesday night.

Seacrest asked Bowersox how she was feeling, noting that the last 24 hours seemed to be tough for her.

"I feel good," Bowersox said, adding that she is a "tough cookie."

Seacrest responded: "You are a tough cookie."

Bowersox is the first to perform tonight.

Body language expert says Jake and Vienna won't last

| 15 Comments | No TrackBacks

Hollyscoop.com is quoting a noted body language expert as saying that "The Bachelor" coosome twosome ---that's Jake and Vienna--- won't make it down the aisle.

Here's an excerpt:

"So does Vienna have Jake's best intentions at heart, or was she just in it to win it? Sanjay Burman, Body Language Expert and Author of Reading People: A Master Hypno-therapist's Guide to Understanding People, tells Hollyscoop exclusively that Jake is so infatuated with Vienna physically that he's unable to see through her mixed messages. Here's what Sanjay had to say:

....."Last night's "Bachelor Finale" was riddled with mixed messages and Jake is clearly not able to think beyond his physical infatuation for Vienna to see through these messages! There is peak physical attraction between the Vienna and Jake shown by the fact that they meet halfway when leaning in to kiss each other and both linger there comfortably while kissing, as opposed to how Tinley had to lean all the way in to Jake to kiss him.

....."Furthermore, Jake is embarrassed by the things Vienna says to the family shown by the way he looks down in her direction but not directly at her. But, again, Jake lets his physical attraction override all of these signs. When they embrace at the end it is clear that they are physically infatuated and want nothing more than to be together sexually at that moment. I would predict that this would last no more than 2 years if Jake actually marries her and if Vienna is able to hide her true colors much longer!"

Allie is the next "Bachelorette"

| 9 Comments | No TrackBacks

At the end of the corny "After the Final Rose" telecast, it was announced, to probably no one's surprise that Allie, from this season of "The Bachelor" will be the next "Bachelorette." Hmmm. She's the one who left Jake out in the cold and amid a LOT of tears because she feared being fired from her job.

So Allie how did you swing the next few weeks of time off for "The Bachelorette"?

And drum roll please... just when you thought we'd seen the last of Vienna and Jake, it was announced that Jake Pavelka, yep THAT Jake will be the 11th contestant on season 10 of "Dancing with the Stars." The former "Bachelor" proudly boasted that his new fiancee, Vienna, would be front-row, center, cheering him on. I can't wait.

WHAT IS GOING ON ON ABC? What's next? Jake gets a role on "All My Children"?

After all, we can't say ABC doesn't take are of its own. Cameron Mathison has added "Good Morning America" special entertainment correspondent duties onto his resume in addition to his role on "All My Children." And Melissa Rycroft, similarly employed by "GMA" is now co-hosting "Dancing with the Stars." Maybe Vienna will join "The View."

030110lysacek.jpg

In the midst of all the hoopla on "The Bachelor" finale, Tom Bergeron and new co-hostess Melissa Rycroft revealed 10 of the 11 stars who will make up season 10 of "Daning with the Stars." So without further ado, here ya go:

Pamela Anderson (ex-"Baywatch" poster gal)
Buzz Aldren (retired astronaut)
Shannen Doherty (the original "Beverly Hills 90210" bad girl)
Kate Gosselin ('nuff said. really)
Niecy Nash (comedienne and former "Reno-911" star)
Chad Ochocinco (NFL star)
Evan Lysacek (Olympic gold-medal winning figure skater... helloooo Kristi Yamaguchi)
Erin Andrews (ESPN anchor)
Nicole Sherzinger (Pussycat Doll)
Aiden Turner (soap star, "All My Children")

See photos of the new dancers here!

And the 11th contestant is ...

Jake chooses Vienna on 'The Bachelor' finale

| 12 Comments | No TrackBacks

jakevienna.jpgAfter weeks of confusion and telling everyone who will listen that he was in love with two women, Jake chose the fiery Vienna for his bride-to-be, after one of the most gut-wrenching farewells in "Bachelor" history. Jake broke Tenley's heart, but at least he was honest enough to tell her that there was just something missing. Better now than later, right?

Tenley acted graciously, or as graciously as she could, thanking Jake for making her feel special.

And then there was the proposal to Vienna, the woman of Jake's dreams. To each his own, right?

Our other reports from tonight's big finale chronicled the early tears, the botched parental visit with Vienna and the heart-wrenching final dates.

Say, whatever happened to all the other "Bachelors" and "Bachelorettes"?


So here we are, Jake and his two lady loves will have one more chance for one-on-one bonding. To wit, Jake and Vienna spend the day at a spa mud pit and manage to make it one of the most unappealing moments in "Bachelor" date history. The day soon segued into a rendezvous at Vienna's "place" where she gifted Jake with her promise ring and endless babbling about pleasing her father and how her 3-week marriage was a big mistake and... then did Jake make a faux pas by saying "I can't believe this is our LAST date"? Hmmmm.

Jake and Tenley's date was the exact opposite: bright, sunny skies, chartered yacht, snorkeling in a gorgeous coral reef, sailing through a Caribbean sunset, and an almost silent Jake, who seems sun-stroked but insisted he was 'just tired.'

Then he dropped the bomb: Seems Jake doesn't think he and Tenley have that sizzling physical chemistry ("not the sexual chemistry" he insists) that he has with Vienna. Not exactly the words Tenley needed to hear. But she takes the high road: "I want someone who wants all of me."

Things weren't quite as awkward in the nighttime portion of their date, and Tenley sweetly gifted Jake with framed photos from their earlier dates.

So with 40 minutes left to go, just what's in store?

Vienna fails to impress the parents on 'The Bachelor'

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

"The Bachelor" finale continued; just 20 minutes or so into the show tonight:

How NOT to impress your future inlaws:
Talk with your mouth full;
Tell your prospective mother-in-law that her son CAN be cute (instead of he IS cute);
Tell your prospective family-in-law that you come from a small town in Florida that's just a bunch of woods and dirt;
Ignore the white elephant in the room (namely the question on everyone's mind: "Why didn't you get along with the rest of the girls?")

How NOT to prepare your family to meet one of the two women you love:
Tell them she's the one that all the other girls didn't like;
Tell your mom that she didn't come here to make friends.
Tell your brothers that Vienna is not as mature as Tenley and that she has to grow up a little;

What you DON'T want to hear during the "meet the Bachelors' parents" phase from his sister-in-law:
"Won't YOU be surprised when he doesn't pick you."

And why is Jake's mom obsessed with the daughters-in-law getting along? (And yes, it's not daughter-in-laws, Sallie). Ah, she finally explains: "If the women don't get along, it can really cause division in the family."

What you don't want to hear from your future husband prospect:
"If Vienna doesn't get along with my family, that's a deal-breaker."

And why didnt' Vienna think that she needed a really good roots touchup/extension fix before meeting her prospective inlaws? Meeee-ow!

That's pretty much how it went on "Vienna meets the parents"
OUCH!

Tears flow early on 'The Bachelor' finale

| 11 Comments | No TrackBacks

What is it about Tenley that brings out tears in EVERYONE? Just 12 minutes into the show and the waterworks begin: First Tenley, then Jake's dad, then Jake's mom (trying to explain how the women in the family "hold it together" better than the men), then Tenley. Is it possible for Tenley to get through ANY answer to a question without breaking out the tears and that crackly cry-voice of hers?

So here we are on the finale, and WWJD? Seems Jake's family is quite smitten with the willowy Tenley. Is Jake equally enraptured?

And if Jake says he's fallen in love with two women one more time.....

And just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water.... the entire clan and Lady Tenley jump into the pool for some aquatic bonding time. Egads!

And instead of Tenley and Vienna visiting Jake's family in their natural habitat, the family has been flown out to St. Lucia! Gorgeous visuals run rampant.

Can't wait till the folks meet Vienna!

Anderson, Gosselin headed for 'Dancing with the Stars'?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

So here we are, on the cusp of season 10 of "Dancing with the Stars" (March 22 on ABC) and the rumors are positively on fire in terms of who will be featured this year's stellar lineup of celebrity dancers.

Licking its wounds after last year's dismal ratings (and boring cast), the show is looking to "bigger names" to entice viewers, as well as fewer couples to keep the score card easier to navigate. The most popular consensus in the rumor mill is that Pam "Bay Watch" Anderson, and Kate "Jon and Kate Plus 8 " Gosselin, are definites. Other names being furiously tossed around as possible additions to the mix include actress Jennifer Grey ("Dirty Dancing" no less); Olympian skier Lindsey Vonn; legendary astronaut Eugene "Buzz" Aldrin (at age 70 he's still younger than Cloris Leachman); former Olympic swimming champ Greg Louganis; Kevin "Ex-Mr. Britney Spears" Federline; and TV heartthrob John "Full House" Stamos have also surfaced as possible dancers this season.

Reports swirled all over the Internet that Paula Abdul was polishing her dancing shoes, too, but she has continuously denied she's on the show.

Alas, we'll have to wait till tonight's "Bachelor" megafest to get the full roster of dancers as the names will be announced during the commercial breaks or after the "Final Rose" ends at 10 tonight.

Stay tuned.

Other changes afoot this season:
Only 12 couples will compete
The first couple will be eliminated after the series' second week show
And of course, Melissa Rycroft joins Tom Bergeron for co-hosting duties. Oh brother.
