Who Are You Rooting For On ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Tonight?

It all comes down to THIS (whatever THIS is) tonight on Dancing with the Stars. In one corner, we have Ricki Lake, who’s lost twenty-five pounds over the course of the season (yay!). In another corner, we have J.R. Martinez, whose latest act of derring do includes finding a house for a vet courtesy of Building Homes for Heroes (yay!). And in our third corner, we have Rob Kardashian, who’s greatest feat has been not being as awful as his sisters (yay!).

So who deserves the mirrorball? I don’t know. I haven’t been watching. But I assume some of you have. Who are you rooting for?

QUICK HIT: ‘Skating With The Stars’ Is Happening

For those of you who just can’t get enough of celebrities in motion, fear not: ABC has greenlit Skating with the Stars, which is not to be confused with the Fox disaster Skating with Celebrities. The cast for this icy talent competition includes a veritable who’s who of celebreality stars as well as a few reality TV virgins: Bethenny Frankel, Jonny Moseley, Vince Neil, Sean Young, Rebecca Budig, and Brandon Mychal Smith (the obligatory Disney Channel star).

Quite frankly, I’m shocked that Bethenny agreed to this spin-off. She’s too high profile for this experiment. Dancing is where she belongs. Then again, maybe this is just an elaborate passive-aggressive dig at Jill Zarin, the resident figure skater / ass-faller-onner of The Real Housewives.

Audrina’s Mom is Drunk, Amazing

Reality starlet Audrina Patridge got voted off Dancing with the Stars last night; so what’s a mother to do? How about get drunk on Hollywood Boulevard and give the paps a piece of her mind? That’s exactly what Audy’s mom did, and in this hilarious video, the woman (who looks strikingly like her daughter) unleashes her wrath at American, Lauren Conrad, and pretty much anyone else she’s felt has wronged her daughter. Good times indeed…
