Paula Deen

'DWTS' Is NOT a Reputation Resurrection

9/2/2015 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Paula Deen scoffed at the notion she was doing "Dancing with the Stars" to restore her reputation.

Paula was in NYC, flanked by some pretty serious dudes, who clearly did not want her talking about the obvious. It's a big step for Paula, who hasn't done anything this high-profile since the racial stories broke.

She's in great spirits and vows she's not competing for show ... she's gunning to win.

Mark Ballas

I Got a New Zip Code in My Step ... 90210

8/22/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0821-mark-ballas-house-CRISNET-01'DWTS' star Mark Ballas just dropped $2.5 mil on a fixer upper.

It will make more sense when we tell you this ... the house is in a primo section of Bev Hills. It's a skosh over 4,600 feet, with 5 bed and 5 bath, but it needs major work.

We're told Mark hasn't decided whether he'll live in it or flip it, but he has options, and talent. Mark and pal Derek Hough flipped a house they bought together for $1.2 mil, plunked $200k into it and sold it for $1.8 million. The renovation was featured on "Mark & Derek's Excellent Flip."

Now he's doubled the stakes ... and he's flying solo.

Ices Her Up

breaking news

0818-juliann-hough-instagramJulianne Hough is excitedly announcing she's freshly engaged to Washington Capitals star Brooks Laich -- but, oddly, she's not giving up the goods! 

The "Dancing With the Stars" judge has been dating Laich -- a center with the Caps -- since 2013. She announced their engagement on Instagram by posting a pic that does NOT show Brooks' face or the ring ... the only 2 things every woman wants to see. 

She said, "We are overwhelmed with joy and excitement to share with you our recent engagement! #fiancé #love"

That's sweet and all, but here's what you really want to see -- Brooks' face. Judge away, ladies.

Exclusive Details

Mark Ballas is gunning to become the Arthur Murray of the 21st century.

We've learned Ballas plans to open a slew of dance studios across the country, called the Mark Ballas Dance and Performing Arts Center. The first is set to open next week in Charlotte, N.C.

We're told Ballas and his business partner expect to have 50 centers up and running by the end of next year.

Our sources say Mark will be an active owner, visiting every location and working on marketing and curriculum. His dad Corky (the OG dancer in the fam) will certify the dance instructors at the various studios.

The dawning of the Ballas Empire is now.

Anthony Davis

Reality TV Ain't My Bag ...

But Get Magic On 'Apprentice' Now!

7/23/2015 12:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Donald Trump's loss is Magic Johnson's gain ... according to NBA star Anthony Davis who's throwing his sizeable support behind Magic for the now available "Celebrity Apprentice" host position.

The Pelicans stud center was chilling with Sacramento Kings star Ben McLemore down in Anguilla at the Viceroy hotel. AD's down there for his Anguilla Youth Sports Foundation basketball camp, but we talked reality TV with him.

Davis explains why he thinks Magic would be great in the boardroom -- but also why you won't see him in the ballroom. Yes, Davis says he was offered a spot on "Dancing With the Stars" ... only to turn it down because ... well. Dude can't dance.

It's okay Anthony ... you can't possibly be as bad as this guy. 

Tallulah Willis

There's Always Rumer for ...

My Boobs!! [TMZ TV]

Winning “Dancing with the Stars” was huge for Rumer Willis -- but not nearly as huge as her kid sister's boobs were on the Internet, just hours after the 'DWTS' finale.

The pic that was all over social media proves Tallulah Willis is guilty ... of udder thunder stealing!tmz-on-tv-3

Erin Andrews

Rolls Eyes

'DWTS' Proposal

5/12/2015 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Who could possibly hate on a marriage proposal on live TV? Erin Andrews ... that's who.

EA was on the mic Monday night when "Dancing With the Stars" semifinalist Noah Galloway -- a war hero and double amputee -- proposed to his girlfriend after his performance.

Keep your eye on Erin ... first comes the eye roll, then she appears annoyed as the two embrace. How dare they block her camera shot after such a wonderful and touching moment!

Erin tried to explain the incident by saying she was trying not to cry.

Way entertaining.

Rumer Willis

Not Just Demi ...

Full-On Sex Goddess

5/5/2015 7:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rumer Willis Hot BodyYou don't have to give a crap about dancing ... to give a crap about Rumer Willis emerging as a major piece on "Dancing with the Stars" -- although you'd have to watch the damn show to know that. 

As we've said ... she doesn't need the Mirrorball Trophy (but she'll probably get it) -- Rumer's already won the Now Everyone Knows I Have a Bangin' Body award.

Exhibit A: this outfit with the neckline down to her belly button, and the leg slit up to her ... ya know.

Kudos to Bruce Willis and Demi Moore too ... for the Best Damn Genes award.

We're Being Sexually Exploited!!!

5/2/2015 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Women don't have a monopoly on people making them feel like sexual objects ... so says "DWTS" dancer Val Chmerkovskiy.

Val's partner, Rumer Willis, was licking her chops at the prospect Val and Artem Chigvintsev will be shirtless on the show next week, and Val explained there's more to him and Arlem than just pecs and a handsome face.

Val got handsy with Artem during Friday's rehearsal to punctuate his point.

Erin Andrews

Did She Just Take a Shot

... at Jarret Stoll?!

4/21/2015 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erin Andrews may have sent a passive aggressive message to her NHL star boyfriend Monday night -- seemingly chiding him for his Vegas drug arrest ... and it all went down on "Dancing with the Stars."

Erin was interviewing Willow Shields after her wild performance -- and asked her if she ever busted out similar moves on Spring Break. 

When Willow gave her super boring answer -- "I just sit at home and watch movies all week" -- Andrews gave a very interesting response:

"I feel like some other people should learn from you."

Paying attention Jarret Stoll?  

'DWTS' Star Chris Soules

Dance-scaping

4/12/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"The Bachelor" star Chris Soules is definitely no 40-year-old virgin ... but he did a damn good impression by getting his chest hair torn out for his next performance on "Dancing With the Stars."

We're told Chris will be channeling Hercules in the dance number, and his partner Witney Carson suggested he clean up that Soules Patch ... of course, she volunteered to wax on, wax off.

We're told he'll wear a skirt to show off his man-gams, and nothing above to showcase his new, smooth chest. We doubt fiancee Whitney Bischoff will complain.

It's painful to watch but it's funny.

Rumer Willis

Asses With Stars ...

Just Give Her the Damn Trophy Already

4/10/2015 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0410-rumer-willis-akmgsiThis is Rumer Willis leaving a "Dancing With the Stars" rehearsal -- or more accurately ... it's Rumer's perfect ass leaving rehearsal. 

On fleek ... comes to mind.

Rumer's already taken the MVA (most valuable asset) on this season of 'DWTS' -- and a lot of people who give a crap about that show ... think she's a lock to win the mirror ball thingy in the finale. 

If she doesn't win ... we'd hate to see her go, but we damn sure ain't gonna be mad watching her leave.

Michael Sam

Cut from 'Dancing'

... Unemployed Again

4/7/2015 6:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He couldn't hack it on the field ... and now, Michael Sam's been axed from the ballroom as well. 

The first openly gay man to be drafted into the NFL found himself on the wrong end of the chopping block on "Dancing with the Stars" Monday night ... after his final rumba didn't cut it with the judges. 

Sam became the 3rd contestant eliminated from the show ... following Charlotte McKinney and Redfoo. 

FYI -- Suzanne Somers, "Bachelor" Chris Soules and Rumer Willis still remain. 

Now, Sam is faced with a decision -- try to battle his way back into the NFL ... or give up and focus on a career in pop culture. 

Sooooo ... wedding reality show?
