Backstage at Dancing with the Stars: Ryan Seacrest?!

Bruno Tonioli by Kelsey McNeal/ABC

Judge Bruno Tonioli was in rare form Tuesday night. In an interview with TV Guide just moments after the show, he let loose on the male stars of Season 6, calling them "lazy bastards." Apart from R&B star Mario, Tonioli says he was not impressed by the quality of dancing on the season-opener. "I'm so relieved seeing the girls," says Tonioli, "because the boys needed a kick in the ass. Mario was the only one who really sparkled. The others? They were lazy bastards. Sorry, but it's true. They did the dances, but not enough. You're not going to get away with that on Dancing with the Stars. And if you try, we're going to go after you."This isn't the first time, of course, that the first dances of the season have been less than stellar.... The efforts of Master P., Kenny Mayne and Billy Ray Cyrus come to mind. So why is Tonioli so wound up this time? Maybe because now, Dancing is the No. 2 show in the land and we've grown to expect more. Maybe it's because on Tuesday night, the show ... read more

Backstage at Dancing with the Stars' Opening Night

Karina Smirnoff and Mario by Kelsey McNeal/ABC

Opening nights are all about nerves — feeling them, hiding them, handling them. And it didn't seem to matter whether the stars were dancing (the men), or waiting one more night to dance (the women). Backstage at Monday night's Dancing with the Stars, you could practically hear the nerves jangling. "It's so different from tennis," says Monica Seles, who, off the tennis court, is shockingly tall (in heels, she's over six feet). "In tennis, you win, you lose, you shake hands at the net, and the umpire doesn't say anything.""I know I'm going to be getting up tomorrow morning at five o'clock, completely wired," says Oscar winner Marlee Matlin, who thought R&B singer Mario "looked really good." "I got to get my feet working," said Mario, a perfectionist who practiced on his own when his pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, was out for four days having surgery for a herniated disk in her neck. Smirnoff was clearly protecting her neck during the pros' dazzling opening number. "I have to ... read more
