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...
Chaz Bono, Lacey Schwimmer
You can only imagine the enormity of the pressure on Chaz Bono during his six-week run on Dancing With the Stars: He was the child of Cher, one of the world's biggest celebrities, he had bad knees and was terribly out of shape, and there were rumors of death threats because his presence on the show made him the poster boy for the transgender community. In fact, the show's impressive security presence — big, beefy guys who are scattered throughout the ballroom — was always heightened when Chaz was on stage.
But he remained a humble, dignified, good-humored guy, holding his own in the face of ...
Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Len Goodman
Monday's Dancing with the Stars smackdown between Maks Chmerkovskiy and judge Len Goodman got you guys talking — and as a result, the show skyrocketed to No. 1 on our Social Power Rankings list. Based on your feedback, one thing is clear: The majority of TVGuide.com users are Team...
Dancing With The Stars
Dancing with the Stars stomped Game 5 of the World Series, averaging 17.17 million fans vs. 14.32 million.
In the 18-to-49 demographic, though, Fox's baseball coverage beat ABC's program, which was spiced up Monday night by a spat between Maksim Chmerkovskiy and judge Len Goodman, 4.2 to 3.2. NBC's The Sing-Off pulled in 4.18 million (1.6) over two hours, Nielsen data shows.
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...
Danciing With The Stars, Mark Ballas, Chelsea Kane
Chelsea Kane is just three dances (and a couple million votes) away from a spot in Dancing with the Stars' final three, and she can't believe it herself. "I knew when I went on [the show] that a lot of the viewing audience had absolutely no clue who I was, so I was really afraid that I would be going home [early]," she tells TVGuide.com. "The fact the fact that people who haven't seen me before have invited me into their home and have voted for Mark [Ballas] and me into the semifinals is just amazing. I'm so flattered and I'm really having the time of my life." The Disney star has her work cut out for her this week: Besides two individual routines, she will face off with the other three couples in a winner-takes-all cha-cha with 15 points on the line. But after her and Ballas' heart-to-heart about his 'tude towards Len Goodman, Kane says the duo is "clicking better ever."
Chelsea Hightower, Romeo
He may have been the most surprising contestant in Dancing With The Stars history. No one, least of all the judges, thought when the season started that they'd be falling in love with the son of Master P, and so disappointed to see him go.
So, the question some of us were asking Tuesday night was: Where are we? Dancing With The Stars? Or American Idol? There were so many crossovers between the two shows Tuesday night that it seemed the two television titans had morphed into one super show: Dancing With The Idols...
Mark Ballas and Chelsea Kane
It's YouTubing with the Stars!
The love of "Friday" continues, this time behind the scenes on Dancing With the Stars, courtesy of Chelsea Kane's YouTube channel. Kane herself does a pretty good Rebecca Black, while Mark Ballas and Lil' Romeo lay down some beats. Where's songbird Pia Toscano in all this? Partying, partying (yeah) offscreen for most of the video, but you can catch her at the end.
Glee prepping "Friday" cover (yes, that "Friday")
Dancing With The Stars, Chelsea Kane
Are Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas dancing rebels without a cause? The two have incurred the wrath of Len Goodman for going against the grain with their Dancing with the Stars routines, but the Disney star says it's all for the people. "I think there's a time and a place for breaking the rules," Kane tells TVGuide.com. "I think we enjoy it because we are one of the youngest couples on the show and we want to entertain." This week, however, look for them to be on their best behavior during their quickstep.
