Kendra Wilkinson failed to impress again on Dancing With the Stars, finishing tied for last Monday (albeit with two other couples, and a decent score).
Decked out like a figure on a Fourth of July cake, the E! star looked less than inspired and more like she was simply trying to get through the foxtrot.
She’s an amateur, of course, so no one expects her to be perfect.
But you wonder if she’s still hurting from last week, after which she said she felt belittled and embarrassed by Carrie Ann Inaba. Watch and see:

Sometimes you just have an off night. For Kendra Wilkinson, that night was last night. Coming in last with 18 points, was it her last on Dancing With the Stars?
“The scores suck,” the reality star lamented afterward. “That’s the way it goes. I didn’t do a perfect job and I got the scores I got, and that’s the way it is.”
Kendra admitted to having mixed feelings about the routine, a Viennese waltz with partner Louis van Amstel, before it even got underway Monday.
“I didn’t feel comfortable but when the music started I did feel comfortable,” she said. “I felt in place. I felt like I didMore >
It’s not that Stefano Langone and Paul McDonald are bad singers, but their efforts have lagged behind the rest of the field at times on American Idol.
Did the twosome do enough to turn things around last night? Or are both in big trouble when the votes are tallied on tonight’s elimination episode?
Stefano elected to sing “When a Man Loves a Woman,” Percy Sledge-style, while Paul went on with Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.” Thoughts?
Watch their performances from Wednesday night below and tell us if you think either – or neither – should be receiving a ticket home this evening …More >
Did you believe in Thia Megia last night?
The young American Idol hopeful dedicated her rendition of “Daniel” to her brother and was told by Jimmy Iovine that “if they believe it, you get to the following week. If they don’t, I don’t believe you do.”
So the challenge was laid out, and Megia didn’t falter in the face of it. But she also performed yet another ballad, the third of the evening, and one that couldn’t compete with those of Lauren Alaina and Pia Toscano.
Might Thia be in trouble? Randy said she may have played it too safe. We’ll find out tonight.

Only 16 years old, Thia Megia was born a full generation after the end of Motown.
But that didn’t stop this talented crooner from showing off a bit of rhythm and belting out Martha and the Vandellas’ “(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave” on last night’s American Idol performance show.
What is the best audition of the evening? No, we’d give that honor to Jacob Lusk or James Durbin. But it was a different type of song for Thia, who proved her versatility a bit, as Jennifer Lopez said: “I feel like we’re scratching the surface with you a little bit.”
James Durbin closed out American Idol last night with the third Steve Wonder single of the evening (following Pia Toscano and Scotty McCreery).
Rocking out like usual to “Living for the City,” James threw in some dance steps and sang directly to bassist Bob Babbitt during the bridge. A very cool move that brought down the house.
The audience goes crazy when James is finished, as J. Lo says the audition was “incredible” and Randy labels it “unbelievable.” Are we looking at the next American Idol? Sum it up for us, Steven: “I think sometimes it takes a little bit of being crazy to make aMore >
Dancing With the Stars kicks off a brand-new season this evening.
Who do you think could go all the way? Which pair do you think may surprise people? Who has absolutely NO shot and who will stick around way too long?
Will Petra Nemcova win one for the tsunami survivors? Can Kendra make her latest reality show turn one to remember? Will Hines Ward cut block someone?
We’ll recap the competition in detail tomorrow morning. For now, it’s time to share your predictions as the pairings prepare to take the parquet tonight …
Tell us who you think will hoist the Mirror Ball on DWTS:

Casey Abrams made American Idol history last night.
The bearded, talented finalist became the first contestant to ever cover a Nirvana single, putting his unique spin on “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” It wasn’t the greatest performance of the evening – that honor likely fell to Stefano Langone – but you have to give Casey props to taking such a risk.
The judges and the crowd certainly did. What did you make of this heavy metal rendition?

He’s among the leading candidates to be sent home tonight, but American Idol finalist Paul McDonald has other concerns to consider before this evening’s results show.
Following his cover of Ryan Adams’ “Come Pick Me Up” last night, the aspiring singer was faced with a number of angry Tweets from viewers who took issue with the Marine Corps Dress Blues jacket he donned on stage.
In response to this fervor, McDonald has Tweeted:
“Just to let everyone know I have nothing but respect for our men and women in the armed forces. Tons of respect for you guys…More >
Perhaps this will help you choose between Bree Olson and Natalie Kenly…
On an ABC interview that will air this evening, Charlie Sheen introduces the world to the two women who he’s been labeling his “goddesses” for the past week or so: Olson (real name: Rachel Oberlin) and Kenly.
Referring to their relationship with the actor, Olson calls Kenly by the nickname given to her by Cali Chronic X Magazine and says:
“Natty and Charlie have their own special connection, I have my own connection with Charlie and then Natty and I also have our own relationship,” while Natalie adds: “It seems crazyMore >
Amidst a sea of J. Lo’s tears, Chris Medina was eliminated from American Idol this week.
But that isn’t stopping the aspiring singer from pursuing his dreams. The former contestant, whose fiancee suffered a brain injury in a 2009 car accident, will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno this evening and perform the single “What Are Words.”
“It’s a song about making promises and fulfilling them, about telling someone you love that you’ll be there and having them be able to count on you because you said it,” Chris says. “Because the words that you say really mean something. It’s a powerfulMore >
And then there were 60.
American Idol chopped down its contestants from 100 tonight, cutting 40 hopefuls and bidding farewell to Hollywood. The competition next heads to Las Vegas, where singers will take on The Beatles catalog and 20 more wannabes will be eliminated.
So, who advanced? We were pleased to see Ashley Sullivan, Jacob Lusk, Scotty McCreery, Ta-Tynisa Wilson, Brett Loewenstern, Lauren Alaina, James Durbin, Casey Abrams, Carson Higgins, Naima Adedapo, Julie Zorilla and Rachel Zevita all receive good news.

It took Prince about 10 seconds to realize what the public has known for years:
Kim Kardashian is stiffer than Brett Favre when texting New York Jets employees.
During his concert in Madison Square Garden last night, the iconic artist invited Karadashian to dance with him on stage. Without a script, personality or any sense of spontaneity, however, the talentless reality star simply froze. It didn’t take long for Prince to give her the boot, as you can watch here:

Kim Kardashian starred in her biggest national commercial last night, during Super Bowl XLV no less.
But the evening prior to the game was just as exciting for this professional celebrity, if her relationship with Kris Humphries is to be believed as anything more than a PR stunt.
Kim dined with the Nets power forward and his family at STK in New York City, helping to celebrate Humphries’ 26th birthday. She even picked up the $900 for the meal and left a generous tip, witnesses say.
“Yummy dinner with yummy people!” Kim Tweeted on Saturday night.

Forget ball drops and champagne toasts. On ABC last night, New Year’s Eve was all about the music.
From Ke$ha to Willow Smith to a slimmed-down Jennifer Hudson, artists performed on the annual Dick Clark and Ryan Seacrest-hosted special. We hope all readers had a happy and safe evening and we present a quintet of videos from the evening below.
