'Dancing' with the Diva,

the Best, the Worst

9/16/2009 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So every season of "Dancing with the Stars" TMZ puts its intrepid spies to work -- and this year they are on top of it as ever.

Dancing' with the Stars Cast

The Diva: Multiple sources on the show say Macy Gray is hands down the most difficult. As one source put it, "She doesn't want to be there" and she has "regrets" she signed on. Another source says she gets so frustrated she leaves rehearsal early -- once after only 10 minutes. We're told another time she blew off a rehearsal altogether. As that source says, "She's just going through the motions and doesn't want to be there."

The Worst: We're told Ashley Hamilton -- George's son -- is not only the worst, he's "painful to watch"

The Best: This one is tougher to call. We're told Donny Osmond, Aaron Carter and Mya are all contenders, but the big surprise is UFC legend Chuck Liddell. Our spies say he's really good and practices like a mutha. One source says he gets to practice early and shuts the place down, with 6 hour, uninterrupted power sessions. And get this -- we're told he's already lost 20 lbs.

The Most Fun: "Iron Chef" host Mark Dacascos by a mile. We're told he's endlessly entertaining, he's having a blast and he's using his martial arts skills to shake it up.

Donny told me that Marie Osmond is the best dirty dancer he ever danced with. He added, she is also the best kisser he has known.

How can Chuck Liddell be practicing for six hours when there's a five-hour rehearsal cap in their contracts to try to avoid more injuries?

Would you want to be the guy to tell chuck he can't train as long as he wishes? :p

I'm from Australia and a few years ago Macy Gray performed at our Logie Awards, which are the biggest television awards in Australia (our version of the Emmys). She was apparently so high she could barely stand up, and diva? She puts the word 'diva' to shame! Her attitude was shocking and people couldn't wait to see the back of her!!

After watching DWTS tonight, I was SO SICK OF WATCHING THE PUSS MACY GREY'S FACE. Good riddance to her! I think Kelly Osbourne is going to be the dark horse of this race.
