Monday’s Dancing: What You Didn’t See

Blingin' Down the House: Lil' Kim continued to dazzle the audience and judges in week 2 with her quick step and her choice of music -- "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend." "People are finding out a lot about me," said Lil' Kim. "I listen to classical music. I listen to rock, jazz. I even listen to landscapes -- it relaxes me." In fact, the rapper confessed "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" "is one of my favorite songs." "I just sing it in my house sometimes in the mirror," she said.
Breaking Curfew: Yes, her Go-Gos days are behind her. Belinda Carlisle had imposed an 8 p.m. curfew for herself during the weeks leading up to the DWTS premiere. But two performances into the season, the curfew is getting harder to enforce. "It hasn't worked out very well," she joked. "I'm making myself stay up until 10 and get up at 5." The Ex Factor: Kathy Griffin, who once dated Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, was in the audience Monday night. But the D-Lister was there to root on someone else -- fellow comedian David Alan Grier. But Wozniak's ego isn't easily bruised (as witnessed by his two performances and subsequent critique by the judges). "I knew she was going to be here," said Wozniak. "I love her, and she's a wonderful person."
Stand-Up Guy: Following her hot-to-trot salsa, Melissa Rycroft waltzed right over to her family and boyfriend immediately following the show. She gave a quick kiss on the lips to her beau Ty. Before she walked away, he told her, "Good job." --Elaine Aradillas
