On Tuesday night, as Dancing with the Stars dismissed its first couple, Tom Bergeron took a moment backstage to praise competitor Heather Mills, whom many viewers have their eye on, if only because of the prosthetic leg she prances upon. "I said to Heather that her dance [Monday] night made the whole leg thing moot," says the Dancing host. "I mean, this wasn't a woman who was dancing in spite of an artificial limb. This was a woman who was just kicking ass on the dance floor."

Mills nonetheless can only fret over the next "leg" of the contest. "Now we've got the Jive, which is like my nightmare," she shares, "because you've got to bounce on a leg that won't bounce!" - Reporting by Deborah Starr Seibel
