We have never seen this much skin. This season, Dancing With the Stars is as much a battle of the delts and pecs as it is a rumble for the best heels and toes on the ballroom floor.
Sometimes going topless, or nearly topless, works. Sometimes it doesn't. It didn't help former ...
No one has had a rougher ride on Dancing With the Stars this season than Jaleel White. The 35-year-old actor, who has loads of natural ability, nevertheless seems to have been dancing under a dark cloud since Week 2. Early on, there was a verbal dust-up in rehearsals with his professional partner, Kym Johnson. And then, after landing in the bottom two last Tuesday night, a dance-for-your-life moment when he had to go up against singer Gavin DeGraw in the show's first Dance Duel to stay in the competition.

Our top moments of the week:
13. Biggest Buzzkill: When The Voice's Carson Daly asks Adam Levine for his opinion on Team Christina singer Jesse Campbell, Christina Aguilera is all too ready to come to her singer's defense and warns Adam not to criticize too harshly, saying, "Payback's a b----." Adam — who was only trying to compliment Jesse — is gobsmacked by Christina's reaction. Adding fuel to the fire, Christina calmly asks Jesse: "Aren't you glad that you have the only sober coach up here?" Irony!

It doesn't seem to matter that the Season 14 cast of Dancing With the Stars is filled with celebs we've known and loved for decades: Gladys Knight, Melissa Gilbert, Jaleel White, Martina Navratilova and Jack Wagner, who was given his walking papers Tuesday night. The fact is that two relative unknowns — classical singer Katherine Jenkins and Latin actor William Levy — are obliterating everyone else in the ballroom with the both the quality of their dancing and sheer animal magnetism: You'd be hard-pressed to find two better looking people on the planet.
Kym Johnson and Jaleel White
It was clear that something had gone wrong this week for Jaleel White. On Monday night's episode of Dancing With the Stars, the Family Matters alum broke down on camera after dancing a gorgeous rumba with his pro partner, Kym Johnson, scoring 25 out of 30, and, in the words of the judges, showing great confidence and chemistry.
But the two danced in the midst of a tabloid report that surfaced earlier in the day, citing an "insider" saying that White had blown up in rehearsals on Friday and had verbally attacked his partner, calling her "an idiot." The report then suggested ...
Jaleel White says his ex-girlfriend's allegations of assault are hurtful, but "par for the course."

In a recent interview with Star magazine, White's ex Bridget Hardy claimed the actor verbally and physically abused her. "He pushed me into the toilet, and it broke," Hardy told the magazine.
White, who's best known for playing nerdy Steve Urkel on Family Matters and is currently a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, said the claims stem from child-custody battle the actor thought had been resolved. (The pair have an 11-month-old daughter.) White suggests that Hardy is trying to capitalize on his recent return to the spotlight.

One after another, they came out on the dance floor, and either surprised or dazzled us. Judges, pros, hosts, audience members — okay, everyone — was stunned by the across-the-board display of raw talent on Dancing With the Stars' Season 14 premiere.
There's something different about Dancing with the Stars this season — and it's not just the stage.

Dancing's Maria Menounos: Don't call me the favorite
After nabbing such divisive figures as Kate Gosselin, Bristol Palin, Chaz Bono and even perceived ringers like Nicole Scherzinger in the past few seasons, executive producer Conrad Green and casting director Deena Katz went with a low-key approach for Season 14. They also had a theme: nostalgia. The new crop includes the old-school likes of ...
Jaleel White, Total Blackout
If Neil Patrick Harris can put Doogie Howser behind him, then surely Jaleel White can shed his Urkel legacy. White — who became a pop culture icon as nerdy Steve Urkel on the 1989—98 sitcom Family Matters — is undergoing a career renaissance this spring.

"I'm not going out there in a thong," says soap star Jack Wagner (The Bold and the Beautiful). "Anything else, I'm good to go."
