After coming oh-so-close to the Mirrorball trophy twice, Dancing with the Stars' Anna Trebunskaya is ready to go all the way this season with Kurt Warner. "I hope so. It's still a long way to go, but I think we can do it," she tells TVGuide.com. "Kurt's working really hard and has made a lot of strides in the past week alone." That progress was reflected last week, as the retired National Football League quarterback earned unanimous praise from the judges and improved his score two points to 21. Find out what Trebunskaya — who finished second with Jerry Rice and Evan Lysacek in Seasons 2 and 10, respectively — is working on with Warner the most for Monday's storytelling theme and get her thoughts on Bruno Tonioli's harsh critique of Michael Bolton.
It's been eight long seasons since Anna Trebunskaya last made the semifinals on Dancing with the Stars (she eventually finished second with Jerry Rice in Season 2), but now she's back with Evan Lysacek. "It feels so gratifying, but mostly I'm really happy for Evan because I see how hard he's working and how much he does besides Dancing," Trebunskaya tells TVGuide.com. "He does Stars on Ice and his whole schedule has been crazy, so I'm just happy he's in." But if the Olympic champ wants to make it to the final three, he's going to have to up his performance factor, according to the Dancing pro. See what else Trebunskaya has to say about traveling with Lysacek on Stars on Ice and why we may see more WALL-E impressions from him.

Color me shocked that Katherine Heigl isn't leaving Grey's Anatomy. Is it possible we're being duped in some way? — Krista
MATT: I must say that the lack of fanfare surrounding ABC's confirmation of Heigl's status — especially when juxtaposed with the flurry of official statements regarding T.R. Knight's departure — made me raise one of my overgrown eyebrows. "Sure, she's staying... for just one more episode," I cynically hypothesized. But one of my best sources insists that this is not a case of clever semantics, and that Heigl's Izzie will have a significant presence in the fall.
Please give me some scoop on what's next for Desperate Housewives' Bree. — Fernando R.
MICKEY: Bree may come off like a brittle maneater, but at heart she's a real softy, which is why juggling an angry Orson and a horny Karl will really ...
Dan Marino may not be joining Dancing with the Stars, but have no fear: You may still get your football fix on the dance floor next season.Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Warren Sapp is next on ABC's most wanted list, according to Season 2 runner-up Jerry Rice."They're really going after a big one this time. I think it's Warren Sapp," Rice revealed to Access Hollywood.If it's true, Sapp, who retired in 2007, will fulfill the "Big, Lumbering Athlete" quota for the series. Our wish list had Shaquille O'Neal, but Sapp will definitely do. "You're probably going to see him trim down, lose some weight," Rice said. "I know Warren, Warren is very competitive so he's going to give it 100 percent."Sapp, 35, would be the fourth football star DWTS recruits, following Rice, Season 3 winner Emmitt Smith and Season 6 runner-up Jason Taylor. So if history holds, he should at least make the final two.ABC will announce the full cast on Good Morning America on Monday. ...
OMG! How hilarious was this episode? I've thought other weeks were funny, but never did I laugh the entire way through. And it might be a bit hard to recap, since I was laughing while taking notes. So, as I like to do now and again, I'm just going to spout off my favorite quotes from the show (you know, the adult diaper moments).The first really funny moment came at the tail end of Nicole getting angry that pizza was being thrown away, since she was on a strict diet. So after she asked the guys to make sure the pizza touched something else in the trash can and they didn't understand her, she screamed at them, "If there's pizza that's only touched the box, I'm gonna eat that son-of-a-bitch." Nicole had another great one later as the cheesesteak conversation got all phone-sexish. She asked Duncan if he got sweet or hot peppers and he told her that he got both. Then in her sexy voice she says, "I like it sweet and hot." Even Jerry Rice had some funny moments in this one, especially whe...
