Was I the only person who didn’t get the memo about quitting?
Although the sexy ballroom dancer has been with the program since Day 1 (in 2005), the professional known for very little clothing isn’t pleased with the direction her future is going.
“The producers’ vision of what they wanted my career to be did not meet my expectations. They wanted my career to be the show. I can’t be a dancer my whole life,” she explained. (Okay—so why did she agree to do ten seasons of the show?)
Edyta also says she’s unhappy about how Alec Mazo, her husband and sometimes competitor, is being treated. “I want to work more with my husband and [the producers] didn’t make him a big part of the show or very involved,” she stated.

The Game Show Network is sticking with Catch 21 and the newly revamped Newlywed Game. Both game shows have been renewed for another run on the cable network, and both will see big surprises in upcoming episodes.
The Newlywed Game will turn standard marriages on their ear by featuring the first-ever same-sex couple on the series: George Takei (Star Trek) and his mate Brad Altman, to be exact. Other celebs scheduled to appear with their real-life partners include Davy Jones of The Monkees and his wife Jessica Pacheco, Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo from Dancing with the Stars, and several celebs from The Biggest Loser, Survivor, Real Housewives and others.
Although we’ve already learned the celebrities comprising Dancing with the Stars 9, we know now the 16 pairs vying for that mirror ball trophy.
Aside from the addition of Anna Demidova (last season’s contest winner), there will be no new faces in the professional line-up this round. (The cast is already comprised of three So You Think You Can Dance vets as it is.) Louis Van Amstel, who was just seen on SYTYCD, will also make a return to his old stomping grounds.
Although we’ve already learned the names of Dancing with the Stars’ next competitors, we know now which 13 pairs will be vying for that mirror ball trophy.
Included in the mix are two professionals familiar to So You Think You Can Dance viewers: Chelsie Hightower (Season 4) and Dmitry Chaplin (Season 2). Chelsie and Dmitry will join Lacey Schwimmer, another SYTYCD vet, on the eighth installment of the ballroom show.

Tonight on Dancing with the Stars, the five remaining celebrities did their best to prove they were worthy of a spot in next week’s semifinals. In addition to two individual numbers (no group performances this time), each amateur was challenged with a 15-second solo within their Latin routine.
Who earned their way into the Final Four…and who was simply the odd man (or woman) out? Read on!
On this week’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, the producers had one more surprise in store for both the competitors and the audience.
In addition to their solo numbers, the six pairs had to perform in the first team dance. After being split into two groups of three (captains Warren Sapp and Susan Lucci were responsible for the assignments), the teams were then charged with working together on an ensemble performance. Unlike last Monday’s previous group hip hop number, these two performances - a Cha Cha Cha and a Paso Doble - were actually being scored. (Those scores would then be added to the individual totals.)
Who showed us they could work in unison…and who still needed work on their solos? Read on!
Last night, Dancing with the Stars: Season 7 kicked off with a jam-packed premiere.
All 13 couples - including 2 injured dancers - attempted either a Cha Cha Cha or a Foxtrot. After Round 1, actress/model Brooke Burke was sitting in the lead with a score of 23 while comedian Jeffrey Ross was resting at the bottom with an embarrassing 12. (Even Adam Carolla managed to get a 15 at this point last year.)
Tonight, 12 of the pairs were given one more chance to win voters over before Wednesday’s second elimination. Who proved they were worth saving…and who asked to be sent home? Read on!
Last night, Dancing with the Stars premiered with its largest - and most interesting - cast so far. In addition to having the series’ youngest and oldest competitors to date, the seventh installment also boasts two Olympians and several interesting rivalries. This year we have married competitors (Alec Mazo, Edyta Sliwinska), a father/son battle (Corky Ballas, Mark Ballas) and a brother/sister rivalry (Julianne Hough, Derek Hough).
For the show’s first night, all 13 couples each performed one dance. They will then follow that up with another routine on Tuesday. Come Wednesday, the program’s first two celebrities will be eliminated.
So how did the new hoofers stack up? Read on!

The official lineup for Dancing With the Stars was announced earlier today by Tom Bergeron.
And while history has seen rumors proven horribly wrong, parts of this season’s list were accurately predicted long before.
For the show’s seventh installment, we’ll actually start off with an uneven 13 contestants. This will lead to a double-elimination in the reality hit’s very first week. We’ll also see the oldest and youngest performers in the program’s history.
