Dancing With The Stars
“Extra’s” Renee Bargh caught up with “Dancing with the Stars” pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy after Monday night’s performances, and Val opened up about his brother Maksim’s hot new romance with Kate Upton.
Maksim, 33, and the Sports Illustrated cover girl, 21, went public with their relationship on September 26th, stepping out and holding hands in New York City.
The courageous Valerie Harper ended her time on "Dancing with the Stars," but left a message of hope.
When the 74-year-old joined the competition while battling terminal cancer, it became clear everyone was on her side, especially pro partner Tristan MacManus. Still, an old knee injury posed major problems for her, and her scores were low.
After the announcement, Harper said, "It has been absolutely wonderful -- completely unique, like nothing else in the world that you would ever do. It was an opportunity for me to carry a message to folks, not just with cancer, whatever they have -- whatever challenge."
“Dancing with the Stars” contestant Brant Daugherty had a rough week.
First, the "Pretty Little Liars" star sprained his foot and had to wear a boot during rehearsals, and then, after last week's episode, Daugherty was robbed at gunpoint. The thief took his bag, which had Brant’s dancing shoes in it.
He explained, “A guy outside my apartment building last week after the show, actually came up behind me with a gun, and demanded I give him my bag. And then he said, ‘I'm not kidding. I'll cock the gun and shoot you. I'll do it.’ I had some actual valuables in my other bag, and as soon as he looked down to take the bag, I bolted.”
“Dancing with the Stars” said adieu to Bill Nye, the Science Guy, and partner Tyne Stecklein.
Nye injured himself in rehearsals last week, tearing a tendon. Although doctors advised against performing, Nye told Cheryl Burke-Charvet, "The leg feels pretty good because we've been working on it. We've been icing and the red light, the cool laser, and so it's pretty good."

Tune in next Monday for week 3 on “DWTS”!
“Dancing with the Stars” Season 17 had to eliminate their first contestant, and unfortunately that was NFL star Keyshawn Johnson and his partner, Sharna Burgess.
Host Tom Bergeron explained that votes for Monday's performances will count toward next week's scores, but scores from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli for the dances went toward tonight's elimination.
Check out Johnson’s performance from last week’s premiere!
Johnson felt a little overwhelmed with traveling between ESPN and the show. His samba with partner Sharna Burgess brought some funk. Bruno loved it, saying he wasn't sure if "all of the things were legal." Carrie Ann said he was "a little rough around the edges." Len admired his effort, saying he was definitely "working his assets."
TV personality Sharon Osbourne stopped by Universal Studios Hollywood to chat with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour about getting emotional over son Jack Osbourne’s first performance on “Dancing with the Stars.”
The fierce mother said she was worried at first for Jack, who was diagnosed with MS last year. “It takes so much out of you, ya know? But he wanted to do it, so I'm happy for him and proud of him."
In a revealing new interview with “Extra’s” Mario Lopez, “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Valerie Harper talks candidly about her cancer diagnosis.
