Hope Solo, Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Olympic soccer star Hope Solo says her former Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy often "manhandled" her and once slapped her across the face in rehearsals.
U.S. soccer player Hope Solo has been issued a warning after testing positive for a banned substance, the United States Anti-Doping Agency announced.
Solo has accepted the public warning and will still compete in Olympics.
Hope you had a great week! Thank you so much for your support and votes this season.
We came up short, but it is what it is. Life goes on. I've been getting lots of questions about why we didn't do Jimmy Kimmel and GMA, and it's not a question for us. People are in charge of that stuff.
One thing I want to emphasize in all of this is that I don't ...
Our top moments of the week:
15. Silence Is Golden Award: On New Girl, Jess asks Nick why he doesn't like Paul (guest star Justin Long), her fellow schoolteacher crush who's over for Thanksgiving, and he says it doesn't matter because he's not the one who has to have sex with him. Jess replies that she wants "to have sex with him big time" and "take him down to Chinatown and slice him off a piece of this pumpkin pie." Hopefully, Paul actually wants some of that pumpkin pie or else dessert is going to be really awkward...
Cheryl Burke and Rob Kardashian
Cheryl Burke, a two-time Dancing with the Stars champ, feels a little rusty being in the semifinals. "It's been a couple seasons since I've made it this far, so I have to get used to it again!" she tells TVGuide.com. "But I'm very excited to be back and to have a shot at another final." Burke and Rob Kardashian will duke it out for a spot in the final — with three dances — against J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff, Ricki Lake and Derek Hough, and Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy. "I think it's going to be close," Burke says. "J.R.'s gotten amazing scores and he is amazing, but every single week, it changes. I think it could be any of us making the final and I just really hope it's us." See what else she has to say about preparing for the semis, doing three dances and if Kardashian really...
The scariest moment on Monday night's Dancing With the Stars didn't come from the ghosts, goblins and ghoulish make-up...
Kym Johnson and David Arquette
Kym Johnson has two Mirrorball trophies, but this is the first time the Dancing with the Stars pro is trying to defend her title. She sat out the 10th season after winning with Donny Osmond, but Johnson, who won last season with Hines Ward, is still very much in the running on Season 13 with David Arquette. "I would love to defend. That would be incredible to win back to back," she tells TVGuide.com. "But honestly I don't really think about that. We've got a long road to go before I can even consider it." After landing in the actual bottom two on the second week, the pair has been steadily improving and Johnson believes they can win it all. But what do they need to go all the way? Plus: Get Johnson's take on the Maks-Len fracas...
Maks Chmerkovskiy, Len Goodman
"Maksgate." That's what ousted celebrity dancer Carson Kressley is calling the dust-up Monday night between pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy and two of the three Dancing With the Stars judges...
Hope you're well! Thanks for voting for us!
We have the tango next week and rehearsals are going great so far. It is '80s week and I didn't really want to incorporate anything, but producers insisted. I mean, an '80s tango just sounds weird. But I have a good idea and a good story.
I thought Hope did an amazing job with the foxtrot. She was great and we're ...
Hope you had a great week! Thanks for voting for us!
I'll be honest, I wasn't that nervous being one of the last two couples standing there. Hope was really nervous, but I felt like we had a lot of fans and they're really loyal. I was really calm. I just made fun of Hope for being nervous! It was pretty hilarious. I love how she's cool as a cucumber during penalty kicks in the World Cup, but she's sweating bullets standing under a light on a reality show. We're proud and grateful to be here another week. I think Hope has a huge, exciting fan base with young girls, many of whom are athletic and want to be in sports. She feels like she's representing for them on their behalf — they're not one-dimensional, but they're tough, strong, athletic, feminine and sexy.
I've stopped thinking about the results. You can't control them. Was it Kristin's time to go? Probably not. But we've had this type of result before where people who danced better get ...
