This one is hitting me hard, you guys. Alfonso Ribeiro, AKA “Carlton” from The Fresh Prince of Bel Air has been absolutely killing it on Dancing with the Stars, but may not be for much longer. He really injured himself, and it’s all thanks to performing his signature move, “The Carlton”, on the show (skip to 2:24 for the full-on dance):
has an exclusive:
Our DWTS sources say Ribeiro injured his back during rehearsal Wednesday night as he tried to overcompensate for a groin injury which he suffered on the show, performing his signature move.
The back injury is bad — he’s having trouble even walking. Alfonso skipped rehearsals Thursday so he could get an MRI.
Doctors are telling him the next 48 hours are critical, but they say there’s a real chance he can’t dance.
NOOOOO. Mr. Ribeiro is a front-runner for the mirrorball trophy and a fan favorite. He’s gotta pull through!
As you can tell, I’m way into Dancing with the Stars this season, and I feel no personal shame or guilt about this. Since we haven’t had a DWTS post in a while, let’s have one now. Who are you rooting for? Who do you want gone? Personally I want Janel and Val gone. So over their fake showmance bullshit.
ALFONSO FOR THE WIN!!!

Dancing with the Stars had its big finale last night, and guess who won? The last three couples were Karina Smirnoff with High School Musical‘s Corbin Bleu…
…Cheryl Burke with Jack Osbourne…
…and Derek Hough with Glee alum Amber Riley.
Emma Slater with comedian Bill Engvall was voted off in the semi-finals the night before.
And the winning couple is…
BILL NYE. BILL FREAKING NYE. Bill Nye “The Science Guy” is one of twelve contestants competing in season 17 of Dancing with the Stars. Fantastic!! Here are the rest of your dancing heroes.
– Snooki. Yes, it’s happened.
– Leah Remini rumors were true, though she was not on Good Morning America this morning with the rest of the cast. I hope she’s safe.
– Valerie Harper, which was already confirmed.
– Glee alum Amber Riley. (She will be paired with Derek Hough. If you watch the show, you know this is a very surprising partner for her to get.)
– Elizabeth Berkley.
– Jack Osbourne.
– NFL player Keyshawn Johnson (no idea, sports are so painfully not my thing.)
– Corbin Bleu (from High School Musical, isn’t that practically cheating?)
– Brant Daugherty, actor. No effing idea. Apparently he’s known for Pretty Little Liars.
– Bill Engvall, comedian. No idea.
– Christina Milian.
Are you going to watch?
Wait, I just realized who Keyshawn Johnson is. He’s the dude who keeps driving Justin Bieber‘s cars and effing them up. Brilliant.
Rumours have been rampant — rampant, I say — that Paula Deen would join the cast of Dancing With The Stars. All they had to do was ask. Well, apparently, they did. And she turned them down. Because she has so much else going on and so much else to do.
So why did she say no? According to a source close to the unemployed Food Network Star, (via Daily News),
The dance floor is not the appropriate forum for her.
Really? Of all the things that are inappropriate for Paula Deen to do, dancing is one of them?
All right, Paula. Best of luck!
Paula Deen has pretty much nothing at this point, so if she was offered the opportunity to be on season 17 (yeah, 17 seasons) of Dancing With The Stars, I’m thinking she would take it. Would they dare offer? Maybe. The producers of DWTS seem to love a good comeback and redemption story (see Andy Dick, season 16.)
It’s just a rumor right now. From VH1 via Pure Dancing With The Stars:
Looks like Paula Deen is serving one dish that The Gossip Table doesn’t want to eat. And anyone else for that matter. Rob Shuter reports that the former Food Network star has been dropped Walmart and several other sponsors. However, she may seek redemption through reality TV. Rumor has it that she’s been approached to be on Dancing With The Stars.
Yeah, that’s pretty much it, that’s all the info there is. However, Indy 500 winner Tony Kanaan is apparently “in talks” with joining the cast. He told Hollywood Life that, “If it’s the right time, I’ll definitely accept it and go try it.”
Here are more rumored cast members, or wishful thinking:
– Jon Gosselin
– Khloe Kardashian
– Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean
Would you watch Paula Deen on Dancing with the Stars?
Dancing with the Stars is where celebrities go to die, generally speaking. Unless you’re, like, Kirstie Alley, you won’t be experiencing a career renaissance as you awkwardly lurch your way through an Argentine Tango with Anna Trebunskaya (wanted to think of the most ‘out there’ professional, obvs) in an ill-fitted spandex suit. It’s just not going to happen. Two Kardashians have already been there – whaddup, Kim & Rob? – but here’s the question: would another tread the same path? Will it be Khloe? DWTS professional Cheryl Burke – who was paired with Rob during his season – certainly hopes so.
From Life & Style:
“Khloe’s got to do it,” Cheryl says. “I think she would be amazing. I think she would actually win the whole thing. She looks great, and I think she has natural rhythm and I think she would be amazing.”
Khloe was approached to do the show before (probably before Rob and he did it as a runner-up, of sorts) but turned it down because it’s hard as hell and “working” – other than in front of a camera – ain’t in the Kardashian vocabulary. Now that LamLam‘s been ditched from his NBA team and she doesn’t have much else going on, though, I guess I could see it happening.
I’ve said before that Khloe is my fav Kardashian and that still stands – less of the evils and all – but Dancing with the Stars is even worse than American Idol. It should be burned to the ground, never to be mentioned again.
Sean Lowe of The Bachelor is a surprise addition to Dancing with the Stars. Announced this morning on Good Morning America, Mr. Lowe with dance partner Peta Murgatroyd will join luminaries Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd among others on season 16 of ABC’s reality dancing show.
AND I AM SO PUMPED.
Did you guys watch The Bachelor finale? Sean chose Catherine, who seems okay but barely got any screen time and isn’t nearly as much of an audience favorite as runner-up Lindsay. Sean also really, really didn’t want to break up with Lindsay but he had to because that’s the nature of the show yet he also liked Catherine but one of them had to go, so he told Lindsay, “I have no real reason to break up with you” and “I love you” and sent her on her way and then proposed to Catherine a few hours later. GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW.
He and Catherine are going to marry on TV. Bachelor Biceps wants to make something clear though:
I’ve always said I’m not looking for fame. In fact, I don’t like the fame aspect of The Bachelor or Dancing With the Stars. But when an opportunity like Dancing comes along, it’s too good to pass up. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I wouldn’t have taken it had Catherine not been OK with it. She’s fully supporting me. She’s in my corner. She’s going to be on this crazy ride with me.
Translation: Oh my God you guys they paid me so much money you have no freaking idea, I can’t even, you guys, you guys if I could show you this check you would understand, I can’t even, you guys.
On Bachelor Biceps surprise addition, Andy Dick said,
Oh Lord. If he has those guns and he’s got the dance moves, then watch out America.
Translation: Oh my God you guys I am going to have try THAT MUCH HARDER to keep everyone’s attention on me at all times, you guys, you guys, oh my God.
