Dancing's Derek Hough: I'm So Proud of Amy

Derek Hough

Hey guys,

How'd you like Disney Week?

Thanks for all your votes and messages this week. They've really meant a lot to us, Amy especially. The waltz was a hard one for us, but we pushed through and I'm so proud of Amy and how well she did. We had our usual pep talk before we went out to dance and I just told her to really enjoy it.

Wigs, War and Witches! Shane West Talks New WGN America Series Salem

Shane West

Forget the magic fairy dust and enchanting spells, the witches of Salem are downright terrifying.

The upcoming WGN America series, the network's first foray into scripted original programming, takes a fresh — and much darker -- look at the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. Its witches are very real and actually manipulating the town into a state of fear. Shane West stars as war hero John Alden (historically, a survivor of the trials) who has returned home to find that his former love Mary (Janet Montgomery) has gone on to marry elderly town leader George Sibley (Michael Mulheren). What John doesn't know is that he got Mary pregnant and in order for her to get rid of the baby, she essentially made a deal with the devil-like witch Tituba (Ashley Madekwe).

Tony Goldwyn

Thursday's Scandal season finale, aptly titled "The Price of Free and Fair Election," found Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) getting elected to president for his second term on his own — and with a little (OK, a lot of) help from the death of his son Jerry (Dylan Minnette), who was killed with a strain of bacterial meningitis. Naturally, Fitz assumed Maya Pope (Khandi Alexander) was behind the dastardly deed after her attempt to blow him up at the church failed.
