    ABC reportedly won't allow two men to dance as a couple together on "Dancing with the Stars." An openly gay singer, Who Is Fancy (yes, that is what he calls himself), is set to perform his new song, "Boys Like You," with Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor on the reality competition show's November 23 episode. The song is about a man falling in love with another man, so the singer's choreographer wanted to have two men dancing with each other in the performance. But TMZ reported that ABC wasn't having it. According to the site's sources, a "DWTS" producer responded...

    A court reportedly requires proof that the 'Crocodile Hunter', who was killed by a stingray barb in 2006, will give up his right to the 17-year-old's earnings...

    Anderson Cooper is on TV, but he thinks some people don’t belong there — like Dancing With the Stars All-Stars contestant Bristol Palin. In fact, Anderson and his Anderson Live guest co-host Deborah Norville had a blast ripping apart Bristol, especially her Week 3 fight with Mark Ballas. "You cannot tell that anybody's having a meltdown, because her face is completely frozen!" Anderson said on his show, E! reports. He and Deborah thought it was weird that Bristol showed no expression and her brow didn't wrinkle during the argument, even though she's only "17," (She's actually 21, turning 22 on...

    The FBI and LAPD are investigating the suspicious white powder package that was addressed to Bristol Palin on the set of Dancing with the Stars last week. Law enforcement sources are taking the threat seriously and are looking into the possibility that the incident is connected to the white powder scare in 2010. According to reports, the package containing a white powder substance was opened on the CBS lot in West Hollywood Wednesday, addressed to Bristol Palin. An enclosed note demanded Bristol be removed from the show ... or else.

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver has always been a fan favorite in Wisconsin. But after his win on "Dancing With The Stars" with his dance partner, Peta Murgatroyd, Driver's national profile has increased markedly. That's the word from Brian Lammi, who runs Lammi Sports Management. Lammi has been working with Driver for 10 years to develop his marketing career and recently inked a new 25-year deal to work with the Packers star. "We certainly have felt an immediate increase in PR requests and national media requests," Lammi said. "We also had a number of requests for national speaking...

    MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Republican primary voters think Rick Santorum is the most generous of heart and say Mitt Romney is the man they would trust to manage their financial portfolios, but it’s Newt Gingrich whom they want to see do the hustle on TV. In a series of questions in the latest Washington Times/JZ Analytics poll, Republican primary voters nationwide were most intrigued by Mr. Gingrich, saying he is the one they most want to see appear on “Dancing With the Stars,” and that he is the one who most reminds them of a favorite relative. But he also...

    Two nights in a row, huge fight between me and She Who Must Be Obeyed. I can't watch this carp, I hate it. Before my head explodes I have to say the show is stupid, the talent is stupid, the whole idea of this is stupid. And Bruno is a wiggler, which is stupid. I'll take my lumps on this, from her and all y'all, I just can't watch this show. I brought my Hamburger Helper out here to the DawgHouse so I could surf something, anything, but DWTS. Ended up here on FR, as usual. I bought her a...

    It was the question of the night: how would Chaz Bono fare under pressure on Dancing with the Stars? When it was all over, the activist transgender child of Sonny and Cher – whose appearance drew both praise and controversy – basked in cheers from the audience and warm remarks from the judges Monday. It seems Chaz can cha cha. "Chazzy Boy, you can dance!" said Carrie Ann Inaba. Len Goodman responded with a "Razzamataz Chaz" and praised his footwork, while Bruno Tonioli said, "So cuddly and cute. Great, great debut, Chaz. You should be proud," as Bono and pro...

Cher blasts the haters as she praises son Chaz Bono for 'courageous' DWTS signing Cher has rushed to her son's defence over his decision to sign up with Dancing With The Stars amid of flurry of cruel comments on internet chat forums. Chaz Bono, who recently underwent a female-to-male sex change, will compete in the the ABC show alongside professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer.

    While many people, especially in the LBGT community, have lauded the addition of Chaz Bono to the "Dancing with the Stars" cast, others are concerned, disappointed, and just plain angry – and they went to the show’s online message board to let producers know how they feel. One of the main concerns was that transgendered contestants will be confusing to children and inappropriate for a family program. “I personally do not mind watching Chaz,” wrote Callisandria2. “The problem is that I watch this show with my 10 year old daughter. I am sure the show will talk about Chaz and...

    Amidst all of the kerfluffle over the casting of both a gay man (Carson Kressley) and a transgender man (Chaz Bono) in the 13th season of "Dancing With the Stars," an old question has been raised again: Isn't it time for this top-rated series to allow for same-gender dance partners?

    Ok, I gotta admit, this really took me by surprise. I really didn't just fall of the turnip truck and know all too well that bigotry, stupidity and rank ignorance not only still exist in 21st century USA, but fester in every state of the union. But the reaction that ABC got when it announced that Chaz Bono would be among the celebrities on the new "Dancing With the Stars" season had my jaw dropping to the floor. Homophobia itself is ugly and uninformed, of course, but those who spew anti-gay epithets often do so because they believe sexual orientation...
  • ABC receives complaints about Chaz Bono's addition to 'DWTS'

    "Dancing With the Stars" aims for provocative casts, and Chaz Bono's addition to the show has already yielded strong reaction -- some of it ugly. Bono, the only child of Sonny Bono and Cher, was born a woman but legally changed his gender and name last year. The announcement Monday that he would join the highly rated ABC dance competition immediately made him one of the highest-profile transgendered people in the world. It also brought to the surface prejudices about Bono and others who have changed their gender, judging from the "Dancing With the Stars" message board. In hundreds of...
