'Dancing with the Stars'

Male Dancers Moan

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? 

'DWTS' Iraq War Vet Noah Galloway

Incoming!

Foot Takes Out Tooth

4/6/2015 8:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Dancing With The Stars" contestant Noah Galloway was hit by friendly fire while rehearsing with partner Sharna Burgess ... and it's brutal and bloody.

When you consider what the former U.S. Army soldier's been through -- he lost both an arm and leg in the Iraq War -- it's gonna take a lot more than a busted tooth to rattle this vet.

It's hard to watch ... while practicing their routine Sharna kicks him in the face and you hear a tooth hit the floor like it's tap dancing.

Yet Noah -- a total pro -- only has three little words to say about it ... "No Big Deal."

Check it out.

'DWTS' Mark Ballas

No Longer Adores His Penthouse View

4/1/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0327_mark_ballas_home_launch"Dancing With the Stars" pro Mark Ballas' latest move is called packing -- he's leaving his primo penthouse overlooking L.A.'s Miracle Mile ... and hoping to make a bundle.

Our real estate sources tell us he's selling his 3-bed, 3-bath, 1410 sq. ft. loft for $800k ... and looking for a place with a way bigger dance floor. Dude needs more space to jitterbug.

Ballas snagged the place 5 years ago for $679k ... so he won't be walking away empty-handed, if his realtor Andrew Gulyas can get his asking price.

As for where Mark's heading -- we're told he's looking all over L.A., but definitely wants a house instead of a condo.

They grow up so fast.

NHL Legend Jeremy Roenick

I Shot Down 'Dancing'

... But I Woulda Ruled!!

3/24/2015 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Hockey Hall of Famer Jeremy Roenick says he desperately wanted to be on "Dancing with the Stars" -- but was forced to turn down the gig because of a major political conflict. 

Unclear when Roenick was approached by the ABC show -- but the ex-Philadelphia Flyers superstar says he woulda DOMINATED in the ball room ... telling TMZ Sports, "I woulda been awesome."

Roenick clearly LOVES to get down -- and famously busted out his moves on the ice during his playing days.

BTW -- there's more in the clip ... including an update on one of his most famous beefs. Check out the clip ... Roenick's one of the nicest guys around.  

Robert Herjavec, Kym Johnson

Kiss, But Don't Tell

3/21/2015 8:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Shark Tank" star Robert Herjavec has an interesting way of saying goodbye to his "friends" ... by planting a big, juicy wet one on their smackers.

Robert and his "Dancing with the Stars" partner Kym Johnson were leaving Greenblatt's Deli in Hollywood Friday night, where they were full-on kissing.

A coy Robert explains, they're not dating ... they're just friends who dance.

They've actually been very open about their relationship ... people on DWTS all know the deal.

If there's any doubt about Robert's wealth, this video should put it to rest.  Do you know what a turkey sandwich costs at Greenblatt's?

EXCLUSIVE

"Shark Tank" star Robert Herjavec has a new asset in his portfolio -- his "Dancing With the Stars" partner Kym Johnson ... and she gets an awesome gift from him if they win.

Herjavec and Johnson met mid-February right before the "DWTS" cast was announced ... and we're told they started dating immediately. 

They spent Saturday night at a party in the Hollywood Hills and Monday at Hyde lounge with the "DWTS" cast. Our spies tell us they're very open about the relationship ... lots of making out.

Herjavec has also promised Johnson if they win "DWTS" she'll get one of his Ferraris. 

We broke the story earlier this month Herjavec and his wife of nearly 25 years had separated and were heading for divorce.

Things move quickly with Bob.

Erin Andrews

Not Engaged

Despite Massive Diamond Ring

3/17/2015 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0317-erin-andrews-instagramIt looks like an engagement ring ... she's flaunting it like an engagement ring ... but the rock on Erin Andrews' finger is NOT an engagement ring. 

Andrews has been dating L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll for a while ... after she posted a pic with that huge diamond before last night's "Dancing with the Stars" premiere, there was buzz that he finally popped the question.

Turns out ... the ring wasn't from Stoll -- it was from wardrobe ... specifically so Erin would look "blinged out" for the big show.

But the ring was no cheap prop -- according to E!, it was a special asscher-cut diamond ring that weighed in at 2.01 carats with 22 baguette diamonds and 88 other microset diamonds.

Looked good though ... just sayin', Jarret. 

Michael Sam

'Dancing' Judges Rave ...

'Your Butt's a Work of Art'

3/17/2015 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Sam blew the judges away last night ... at least his ass did ... because the wannabe NFL star's booty was the talk of the ballroom on last night's "Dancing with the Stars."

The dancing was fine. His footwork was sloppy ... but after Sam cut a rug to "Uptown Funk," judges Bruno and Len couldn't stop talking about the junk in Sam's trunk. 

Bruno -- "That butt was a work of art. Michelangelo's 'David' has nothing on you."

Len -- "You could win 'Rear of the Year' and I could win 'Ass of the Past.'

As for Sam, he told producers that ballroom dancing is harder than football ... and he meant it.
