Last night at a benefit for Habitat for Humanity sponsored by Ferrero Chocolates, I got to meet Olympic gold medal winning figure skater Evan Lysacek (you might also know him from his successful stint on Dancing with the Stars). Evan’s costumes for the Vancouver Games were designed by Vera Wang. Now, Lysacek and Wang are collaborating on an upcoming menswear line, which Lysacek describes as his “new passion.” More

There’s a lot of hullabaloo about former Disney kid stars who try to make it as adults, with former Mouseketeers like Justin, Xtina, and Britney cited as examples of ones who were able to parlay their child stardom into bona … More
They may have broken ground, but they couldn’t break through a string of subpar scores: Gili Shem Tov and Dorit Milman, the first-ever same-sex pair on an edition of Dancing with the Stars, were voted off the show’s Israeli version … More
When this season of Dancing with the Stars kicked out, I had a list of things I really wanted to see happen. One of them kind of did – while Bristol Palin and The Situation haven’t hooked up (yet), they did make an abstinence PSA together – but last night, something magical occurred. Jennifer Grey carried out a watermelon on stage with her at the beginning of her freestyle dance.
Let me repeat that for you.

The popularity and press interest surrounding same-sex dancing pair Gili Shem Tov and Dorit Milman on Israel’s version of Dancing with the Stars has led to lots of speculation – including mine – that the US edition of the show will soon follow suit. One name bandied about as a possible celebrity is Portia de Rossi, although her wife Ellen DeGeneres reportedly thinks watching same-sex dancing is strange. More
They’re more than just dance partners – they’re trailblazers. Israeli TV host Gili Shem Tov agreed to be on her country’s edition of Dancing with the Stars under the condition that she be assigned a female partner. The show agreed, and Shem Tov, along with her pro dance partner Dorit Milman, quickly captured attention around the world.
This week, they performed their second dance, a sexy rumba. More
A few weeks ago, the Israeli edition of hit reality show Dancing with the Stars (in Hebrew, it’s Rokdim im Kochavim) made waves when they announced the show’s ever same-sex pairing. Out lesbian TV host Gili Shem Tov (pictured) has been paired with professional dancer Dorit Milman. During rehearsals, Shem Tov and Milman decided that they would switch off leading. More
Would you watch Skating With The Stars? It’s like Dancing With The Stars, but with skating, instead. A short-lived, similar program, Skating With Celebrities, aired in 2006 on Fox, for one season. That show also brought two people, Kristy Swanson, … More
This … is amazing. Following Audrina Patridge being kicked off Dancing With The Stars, her mom delivered this hilarious rant before being picked up and carried off. Highlights include: “It’s all show-biz baby, the show must go on.” “Audrina is … More
The Israeli version of hit show Dancing With the Stars has just announced that a contestant on this year’s show, TV host Gill Shem Tov (a woman), will be paired with a female professional dancer, Dorit Milman. Shem Tov, who is a lesbian, has helped bring international attention to Israel’s version of the show. But instead of asking “why is Israel doing that?” I would like to ask “why isn’t America?” More
Earlier today, Daily News reported that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore fame asked for half a million dollars upfront for a potential deal. When he was told that not even Kim Kardashian makes that much upfront, his manager replied that Sorrentino is “much larger” than Kim Kardashian.
When I first saw this, I thought, “Ok, keep dreaming, Mike.” A reality star really thinks he can make more than… oh yeah, another reality star? More
When Bristol Palin was announced as a contestant on the new season of Dancing with the Stars, she said that she planned to wear modest costumes on the show. That’s a tall order for a show that’s all about slinky, sexy dance gear. Today, the first photos of the ‘celebrities’ and their pro partners were released, and here’s Bristol posing with her partner Mark Ballas. Do you consider this a modest costume? More
The cast of Dancing With the Stars‘ eleventh season was announced yesterday. Most of the contestants’ names had already been leaked, but that doesn’t mean the show is going to be any less awesome. Here are some of the hopes I have for the new season.
1. They make David Hasselhoff do a dance to “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”
2. The Situation and Bristol Palin hook up. Think of the potential future reality programming! Plus, we already know that Snooki voted for McCain. More
