Rick Fox Dancing Without Pants?

Rick Fox is shooting for a three — for Cheryl Burke. The former Los Angeles Laker has three National Basketball Association championships, and a Dancing with the Stars victory this season would give his pro partner a record third Mirrorball trophy. "I'm putting the pressure on myself to get that for her," he tells TVGuide.com. "I know Derek [Hough] and Mark [Ballas] could get three too. I have to make sure I'm attentive, coachable and I'm putting in the effort that is required. She shapes our partnership into championship level." So coachable is Fox that he gamely went with Burke's last-minute costume change to have him shirtless in their samba. What prompted the change? Find out below.

Jason Taylor Quick Steps to the Washington Redskins

Jason Taylor is going to Washington. The Dancing With the Stars runner-up was traded Sunday to the Redskins after an extended standoff with the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins, specifically executive vice president Bill Parcells, were unhappy with Taylor's decision to choose the paso doble and foxtrot over pre-season preparations.

With the trade, the Dolphins picked up a second-round draft pick in 2009 and a sixth-round pick in 2010 from the Redskins. read more

DWTS Backstage: No Hard Feelings Over Kristi's Win

How's this for a good time: Try sitting in the audience for the Dancing with the Stars finale next to designer Rami Kashou, runner-up on this season's Project Runway. "Love that," says Kashou, catching sight of redheaded pro Anna Trebunskaya as she arrives on stage to dance with Steve Guttenberg in a dazzling, fire-engine red gown. "That color is great for her." There is a note-worthy connection between the two hit reality shows: Kit Pistol, another recent Runway contestant, is the stylist for Dancing cohost Samantha Harris. That means for the last ten weeks, Pistol has been scouring Los Angeles to find roughly one hundred gowns for Harris to try on, twenty of which made the final cut. Tonight, however, as Harris stands with host Tom Bergeron, Kashou is underwhelmed. "It's a little too stiff," he says of the pale lilac gown. "And the color needs to be a little stronger."A fashion show, a dance show and a championship, all rolled into one. And Kristi Yamaguchi taking the cro... read more

The Winner is Crowned!

Well kids, this is it! It's been just over two months since this crazy season started and now it's all coming to an end. Who would be taking home the crown and who would go home in utter defeat? More importantly, who is being booted right away and settling for third place? I'm anticipating an interesting (yet long!) night ahead, so let's dive into it one last time!After a short interview with our finalists, Usher entered the ballroom and I shouted with glee. He's sexy and talented and he really hasn't had a song I haven't liked. Despite having a headset, I definitely think he wasn't singing his new hit song "Love in This Club" but that's really fine with me. It's a dancing show and if singing live would have made it hard for him to break it down at the end then he shouldn't have sang. I also think every performer on this show has lip-synched so this isn't abnormal. We've had some pretty great performances this year. Which was your favorite? Then the first big moment of the night arr... read more

The Threesome of the Season

Finale Night is finally here! Well the first hour of a three hour send-off is anyway. Can you believe another season is almost over? It seems like just yesterday that Penn and Monica were stinking up the place! I am very excited to see what the final three have in store for us tonight. I also heard there is going to be a twist so I am eager to see how it all unfolds. Now as much as I enjoy being Public Enemy #1 around here, let's put all the drama from last week aside and sit down for one last D-List meal together. Sound good? Well, like your mama said, you can't leave the table until your finished so pull up a chair and feast on tonight's show!The Cha-Cha Face OffSo the twist tonight was that all three finalists danced to the same song: "Dancing on the Ceiling" by Lionel Richie. When I heard about a group dance earlier this afternoon, I thought they would all be on the floor at the same time like they do in official ballroom competitions. I haven't seen a lot of ballroom competitio... read more

Dancing into the Finals: The Top 3 Power Rankings

As this week's cover of TV Guide asks: "Can anyone beat Kristi?"Yamaguchi and pro partner Mark Ballas are waltzing into the final week of competition with 62.8 percent of the TVGuide.com reader vote, having rebounded soundly from last week's "slide." Still, as many have noted in the blogs, upsets have been known to happen, especially if Kristi's fans assume she is safe, or should Team YamaBallas stumble big-time.Jason and Edyta, meanwhile, are shedding votes at the worst possible time, dipping this week to 14.7 percent on the TVGuide.com poll.As a result, the upset potential is in the hands of Cristian and Cheryl, who with 22.5 percent enjoyed only a small gain in the wake of Marissa's exit.Is the outcome a foregone conclusion? Or do some of you believe that Cristian could miraculously skate past Kristi in the finals? read more
