DWTS: Charlie White and Meryl Davis Say They're "In It Together"

Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Meryl Davis; Sharna Burgess, Charlie White

Olympic ice dancing gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis found themselves in a strange position when they signed on for Season 18 of Dancing with the Stars: rather than being partners, as they have been on the ice for 17 years, they'd actually be competing against each other. But they don't really see it that way.

"I guess technically speaking, we are competing against each other, but it couldn't feel further from that," Davis tells TVGuide.com. "We really feel like we're in it together."

Check out our full Q&A with White and Davis to get their thoughts on whether they have an unfair advantage in the competition, as well as White's reaction to Len Goodman and Carrie Ann Inaba saying his and Peta Murgatroyd's dance last week wasn't really a rumba.

Dancing's Aly Raisman: "I Want to Do This for Boston"

Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas

Last Monday's Dancing with the Stars was a tough one for Aly Raisman, not just because she flubbed a move in her samba, but because the Needham, Mass., native performed hours after the Boston Marathon bombings. (Her family and friends are OK.) "It was really difficult," she tells TVGuide.com. "I just want to say that I love everyone back home from Boston. You're all in our thoughts and prayers. Mark [Ballas] and I tweeted a picture of us making a heart. We're all thinking about you. I'm so sorry that this happened. My heart goes out to everyone who's affected.

Dancing with the Stars Boss on Recapturing the Magic (and Viewers): "It's Back to Basics"

Dancing With the Stars

Last fall, a longtime goal of Dancing with the Stars producers came into fruition: an all-stars season.

Thirteen alums returned, but viewers fled. The onetime ratings juggernaut delivered less-than-glittery numbers — partially due to The Voice's first fall outing siphoning eyeballs. But executive producer Conrad Green also believes it's because fans want to see dancing with new stars, not all-stars.

"Perhaps that was a miscalculation on our part. Maybe we underestimated how important it was to have a new story rather than a continuation of one," Green tells TVGuide.com. "We thought seeing old favorites come back would be really appealing, and I think it was to core fans of the show. All-Stars did deliver in terms of being able to try some new dances out, new challenges and really pushing the level of competition. I think what it lacked was the shock of the new.

"So it's quite nice this season to go back to fresh faces, people completely unfamiliar with dance and get back to that kind of innocence," Green continues. "It's back to basics almost. There's definitely a ...
