    The former 'Dancing with the Stars' pro added an unfortunate touch to her getup as character Crazy Eyes.Not a good look, Julianne Hough. The former 'Dancing with the Stars' pro donned blackface on Friday night as part of her Halloween costume. The 25-year-old actress was portraying "Orange is the New Black" character Crazy Eyes, played on the hit Netflix series by Uzo Aduba. Hough hit the Casamigos Tequila Halloween Party with a group of friends dressed as the cast of the show. For the occasion, Hough appears to have darkened the skin on her face and neck, as well as...

    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...

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.

    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...

    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...

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...

    "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...

    Mounting evidence that Sarah Palin may have bought a $1.7million home in Arizona has sparked speculation she will run for president next year. But it seems the real reason for the move could be more personal - to keep tabs on her daughter, Bristol. The Tea Party politician is reportedly furious at the 20-year-old's new relationship with Disney's Kyle Massey, who she met on Dancing with the Stars last year. Bristol and Kyle are soon to appear in a new reality show for the BIO Channel, which will follow them as they set up a charity alongside Kyle's elder brother,...

    According to the latest polls, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin’s political popularity trajectory is heading south. It was inevitable given our 24/7 fame-obsessed culture which feeds on new personalities and controversy to fuel the celebrity media machine. Once Sarah Palin resigned from her office as Alaska governor, she left that respected “higher platform” reserved for our elected leaders and crossed over into celebrity jungle. There, she willingly subjected herself to the unforgiving forces of media pop culture, where the masses are easily bored. And now, without a new hit show, movie, book, clothing line, charity cause, or fragrance, Palin is...

    President Obama's nationally televised address tonight on Libya is scheduled for 7:30pm. It is an odd time for a presidential address -- especially one dealing with America at war (yes, yes, technically not war, but still) -- it means most of the West Coast will still be at work or just coming home from school. Normally big addresses are scheduled for 8pm or 9pm so the West Coast is able to catch, too. It's possible the timing was a concession to network heads anxious not to lose valuable prime time advertising dollars. Except the only thing not on repeat tonight...

One wrote, "I want my government to protect me the viewer from deceptive practices." Complaining that “no other dancer was called over for a hug,” one viewer said it was a “signal for the GOP/Tea Party supporters of Sarah Palin to ‘stuff’ the vote for Bristol Palin, who on both dates had to be dragged over the dance floor.” That's certain to get the FCC going.

The show is also after another politician's daughter, Meghan McCain, as well. Which would mean, if producers have their way, that family members of the 2008 GOP Presidential ticket would be instead be competing against one another. Weird.

    Bristol Palin is no Ginger Rogers. She’s not even Britney Spears. Bristol made it to the final three of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” because the viewers are fans of her mother, Sarah Palin. So what? Sarah Palin is enormously popular with main street Americans. Recent polls show that Palin is the leading Republican presidential candidate for 2012. Palin is treated like a rock star at public appearances. Her TLC reality travel show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska”, premiered last week as the sixth highest-rated show on cable.

Jennifer Grey, who consistently topped the judges' leaderboard throughout the season, took the "Dancing" title Tuesday, outscoring fellow finalists Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin, who was buoyed for weeks by passionate voters and online efforts to support the single mom. Massey finished second. Palin was third. Grey, who overcame painful neck, back and knee injuries to earn three perfect scores in the run-up to Tuesday's finale, said her mind went blank in the moments before she was named the winner.

    Tonight is the final chance for the three remaining contestants on "Dancing With the Stars" to impress the viewers at home. As we've seen this season in particular, high scores from the judges may be nice. But, it's the viewers who matter because their votes can make an impact. Going into tonight's season finale are Jennifer Grey, Kyle Massey & Bristol Palin. Getting to this point wasn't always a smooth trip. There were some tense moments at the production office for "Dancing With the Stars." ABC says a white powder in an envelope was delivered to the office this past...

    Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas have received death threats and "Dancing with the Stars" has measurably heightened security ... sources connected with the show tell TMZ. We're told the threats began to come in last week, after Bristol and Mark made the finals. Execs on the show told Mark to stop tweeting because it was inciting people. Mark complied. Sources connected with the show tell us extra security will be on hand tonight for the show. And, if Bristol and Mark head to New York, execs are talking about breaking format and not doing their interview outside in Times Square...

    After tonight's final dances, Dancing With the Stars may need to consider a name change. That's because the winner might well be someone who's not much of a dancer and isn't really a star.Seven weeks out of nine, Bristol Palin – 20-year-old "teen activist" and daughter of Sarah – finished in last place with the judges but was saved by viewers' votes, eliminating a string of better dancers and bigger celebrities along the way.

    Will a Bristol Palin victory mean the death of ObamaCare? Will liberals in Congress finally be forced to pass tough immigration laws? Or more importantly, will ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" have to alter the scoring system for its dancing competition? Bristol Palin, the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, is a finalist on "Dancing with the Stars." Her success may have something to do with her mother's fanatical political following. Most objective viewers would admit, based on performance alone, she should have been eliminated a couple of weeks ago. The show's judges have consistently scored her lower...

    Conrad Green, executive producer of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, is “mystified” by this week’s Bristol Palin vs. Brandy brouhaha. Green called EW to address rumors of a so-called Tea Party conspiracy designed to help Bristol Palin advance into Monday’s season 11 finals. "She’s improved every week. I think a lot of people are ignoring the fact that she’s actually a decent dancer. What I think is annoying people is that maybe she’s not as vivid a performer as some of the other dancers on the show. Kyle is quite a performer, but Bristol is probably in terms of technique...

    A threatening letter with white powder was delivered to the “Dancing With the Stars” production office Friday, but tests indicated the substance was not hazardous, authorities said.

Hazardous materials officials with the city of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles Police Department and the FBI responded to CBS Studios where the hit ABC show is staged, authorities said. An initial field screening was negative for hazardous substances, but the letter will be transported to...

    Emergency responders in Los Angeles were called to the offices of 'Dancing with the Stars' late Friday to investigate a white powder that was reportedly contained in a piece of fan mail addressed to Sarah Palin's daughter, the 20-year-old Alaskan who has remained in competition with 'DWTS' partner Mark Ballos despite poorly judged performances.
