Bond Girl says Bye-Bye. Jane Seymour, Tony Dovolani by Carol Kaelson/ABC
What is it with this season? Good dancers are going home, people are fainting and, sadly, parents keep passing away! Marie I'm sorry about your father. I'm sure you'll find comfort in your family during this time and we hope to see you back and sassy next week on the dance floor!Well, it could have been worse than Jane Seymour going home. For a second, I got a huge knot in my stomach thinking my Helio was on his way out! Or Jennie! Poor, sweet, most-improved Jennie. Luckily, we'll see her again next week.I was a bit surprised that Cameron found his way out of the bottom two. I guess the soap fans came through for him. I wouldn't have been sad to see him go though. His schedule is insane! He needs to sit down and take a nap. I'm exhausted just thinking about it. I'd be the biggest cranky pants if I were in his shoes they'd probably run me off the show. My one burning question of the night: Who did Kenny Mayne's make-up for the "Dance Center" bit? Was that turquoise eyeshadow ...
Marie Osmond and Jonathan Roberts, Dancing with the Stars
You couldn't make this stuff up. Week after week, bombshells explode on the Dancing with the Stars ballroom floor: Jane Seymour's mother dies. Marie Osmond collapses. Jennifer Lopez's grandmother passes. Gloria Estefan's mother becomes critically ill. Seymour ends up in the emergency room with suspected food poisoning. And now, Osmond's father dies.
Last week, executive producer Conrad Green thought the worst was over when Jane recovered from her trip to the hospital. "It's been a turbulent season, but I think we're at the end of it now." Not quite. The headlines just keep coming."I got a call very early this morn

Marie Osmond by Steve Granitz/WireImage.com
Osmond family patriarch George Osmond passed away early Tuesday at the age of 90. Donny Osmond in fact was on the ET set this morning preparing to tape a segment for tonight's show when he heard the sad news. The Osmond clan, who lost their mother, Olive, three years ago, was scheduled to appear on and be honored by The Oprah Winfrey Show this Friday. Marie Osmond, who currently is competing on Dancing with the Stars, immediately flew to Utah to be with her loved ones."I just feel so bad for Marie and her family," her Dancing partner Jonathan Roberts tells TVGuide.com. "I'm just going to do everything I can to be with her this week and give her all the support and encouragement that I can." Just weeks ago, Marie's fellow Dancing contender, Jane Seymour, lost her mother.
Another perfect score for Scary! Melanie Brown, Maksim Chmerkovskiy by Carol Kaelson/ABC
Ok so I go away for one week and I return to chaos. Sabrina Bryan gone? Really?? I'm never leaving the country again if this is what's going to happen. Stupid honeymoon!I can't imagine what must be going through the celeb's minds at this point. If the best dancer can be sent packing, anyone can go. I love how they all had cheetah paws on them. Thanks for the nipple shot, Maksim! Usually I laugh at how the show always uses the line "the most shocking results show yet" but I don't think they exaggerated at all last week. We may be in for another shock tomorrow night as well.So who's going? Well, I'll tell you who I think isn't. Or, at the very least, shouldn't: My Helio, Jennie Garth and Mel B. Maybe I'm speaking too soon, but I think in three weeks we'll be seeing them battle it out for the "shiny silver mirror ball". Glad to see the writer's strike isn't affecting Tom Bergeron's jokes. They are still lame.I was a bit worried about Helio after his first dance because his scores have ...
Tom Bergeron and Melanie Brown, Dancing with the Stars
We haven't seen him do the rumba or the paso doble, but Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron is faster on his feet than any of the celebrity contestants on the ABC hit competition/reality program. Whether he's trading barbs with judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, chatting with cohost Samantha Harris (and her fill-in Drew Lachey), consoling a celebrity who maybe missed a step (or, heaven forbid, did a lift!), or helping a fainting Marie Osmond
So long Sabrina. Sabrina Bryan, Mark Ballas by Carol Kaelson/ABC
by guest blogger Katie BottnerEpisode Recap: "Elimination Number Six"I am speechless! I think I can still hear the boos resonating from the TV as we just learned Sabrina Bryan is going home. She was pegged to be one of the final two in this competition. What happened? I didn't think her latest dance was enough reason for her to go home this week. The rest of the dancers better stay on their game. Sidenote: after reading your comments about a possible romance between her and dance partner Mark, I have to say I agree. Did you catch the "baby" and "I love you"? Hmm...I was also shocked shocked that Jane Seymour was announced safe second. Now, we did not get to see Jane tonight as she was absent due to a bout with food poisoning. I'll bet she is feeling better now!Did everyone catch Marie mouth, "I am going to faint" when the judges made her wait through a commercial break to find out her fate? It was a surprise that she was not in the bottom two, but that Cameron fo...
Will Jane be in the bottom two again? Jane Seymour, Tony Dovolani by Carol Kaelson/ABC
by Katie BottnerWill the women knock another man out of the competition tonight or will Helio Castroneves and Cameron Mathison hold their own? I think it is safe to say one of the women will be saying goodbye. But who? Will Marie Osmond get more sympathy votes? Will Jane Seymour find herself in the bottom two again this week? In just a few minutes, Mr. I Write the Songs that Make the Whole World Sing, Barry Manilow will be on stage to sing to the remaining six, and we also get a sneak preview into Carrie Ann and Brunos new show Dance War. Who do you think will be in the bottom two? Leave your comments and dont forget to check back after the show for the full recap.
Jennifer Lopez by Carol Kaelson/ABC
by Deborah Starr SeibelNothing, it seems, is calm this season on Dancing with the Stars (airs Mondays at 8 pm/ET and Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET on ABC). It isn't just the stars who are having trouble (Marie Osmond fainting, Jennie Garth crashing, Jane Seymour losing her mother). The guest stars are in the weeds, too. Last week Gloria Estefan had to bow out of performing on results night when her mother became seriously ill. And this week Jennifer Lopez had to tape her two segments on Sunday night instead of performing live on Tuesday due to her own family emergency, the passing of her grandmother...read more
