DWTS Recap

Right about now, the producers of DWTS must be thinking, "I wish we had a little more of the life-and-death drama that surrounded Season 5." Marie Osmond fainting, Marie and Jane Seymour carrying on despite family crisis, Jane and Mark Ballas being carted off to the emergency room for food poisoning and a dislocated shoulder.... that is until last night. Sweet Kristi Yamaguchi talkin' dirty, and she's not the only one. She is planning to surprise the judges with her Paso Doble next week and is determined to get Bruno to see her "dirrty" side! An injured dancer braves the press line, and -- Was that an innocent kiss or a scandal just brewin'?

Steve Guttenberg became this season's third casualty. This must be a cruel April Fool's joke! Mahoney Stevegone? Surely there is some mathematical error. I am completely heart broken right now. Gone — after his best dance yet? His fans hope to see him on an ABC show this fall because he deserves it. Career revival anyone?

Derek Hough suffered a neck injury in rehearsals. "I'm a little bit on a few medications so I'm a little spaced out on painkillers and muscle relaxants and it's really painful" said Derek. Luckily, Shannon made him wear his neck brace.

What does everyone think of the new policy of not revealing the bottom two? The jury is still out. On one hand, it's refreshing because it did add a bit more suspense to the elimination process. The reveal that Marissa was safe in the middle of the show left many wondering who the unlucky contestant was. However, leaving Mario and Karina at the end with Anna and Mahoney Steve was pretty predictable. On the other other hand, the voters need to know who the bottom two is so they know where to give extra votes to.

Most revealing was the segment on the unorthodox hobbies of the stars. How very "Cilla" of Cilla to have a psychic hotline. As much as seeing Kristi down those hot dogs was a surprise, Shannon serving as the president of the MacGyver fan club for a whole decade was the best kept secret of the show.

Kylie Minogue sang a new song off her album. It was good to see her back after overcoming obstacles in her life, but her voice sounded a bit off. Lets blame it on bad wiring. But she did sing "Can't Get You Out of My Head" which was a favorite back in 2001-ish. Oldie but a goodie nontheless.

Hot off the press...Tony Dovolani is waiting for more than his scores this season on DWTS. The pro and his wife, Lina, are expecting twins! Congrats. The new babies will be No. 2 and 3 for the couple, who have a 2-year-old daughter together.

Not to mention, a stolen kiss between Marissa and Cristian. She yelled with excitement "Scandal! Yes, I have a scandal! Cristian de la Fuente kissed me on the lips. Woo hoo!" Married? Yep.....love a good scandal? Yep. Yep. Lets get this party cookin'
