It was Levy-mania at The Grove! Telenovela hunk William Levy and his "Dancing with the Stars" partner Cheryl Burke stopped by to talk with "Extra's" Mario Lopez about their upcoming plans on the competition show and how Levy's kids -- Christopher, 6 and Kailey, 2 -- think he's pretty darn good on the ballroom floor.
"Dancing with the Stars" hottie William Levy and his pro partner Cheryl Burke are packing plenty of heat for season 14 of the competition series.
Levy, often referred to as the Cuban Brad Pitt, was not crazy about the dancing shoes Burke asked him to wear. Burke explained, "He didn't want to wear the heels -- it took me a while for me to put those on for him."
That would Rob Kardashian and his partner Cheryl Burke, who took the leaderboard for the first time in this "Dancing with the Stars" competition.
Kardashian and Burke earned a perfect 30 for their retro, Charleston-utilizing freestyle. "This competition is often won or lost in the freestyle round and to get a 10 you have to blow us away. Consider me blown!" raved judge Carrie Ann Inaba.
Rocker Gene Simmons and longtime girlfriend Shannon Tweed tied the knot in a fancy Beverly Hills ceremony last weekend, and shared a photo as husband and wife with People.

Yeah!"
Breaking her silence for her first TV interview, "Dancing with the Stars" trouper Cheryl Burke talks to "Extra's" Adrianna Costa about the man who molested her when she was 5 years old. "He was a family friend. He would be the one I cuddled and sat next to and watched television," Burke reveals.
Cheryl decided to go public with her painful story in her new book, "Dancing Lessons," which is also an account of her lifetime struggle with her body image, and the travails of enduring two abusive exes. "I had no self-esteem. I had no self-confidence."

That would be former NBA player Rick Fox and his lovely dancing partner Cheryl Burke, who say goodbye to their "Dancing with the Stars" family.
On the 200th episode of the ABC celebrity competition, the contestants first performed team cha-chas, coached by past winners, including Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Ohno.
Then Fox and Burke went solo, dancing a version of Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough's quickstep from Season 5.
Although voters were less than enthused, the judges were mostly impressed with Fox's slick moves, all dressed in green. Carrie Ann Inaba crowed to Castroneves at the judges' panel, "Mr. Banana-Man, you have to pass the torch to the Jolly Green Giant. Rick, by far you're best!" Watch the performance!
