Dancing with the Stars Recap: A 'Jam'-Packed Night

Originally posted 03/23/2015 11:55PM

Here's a little behind-the-scenes Dancing with the Stars scoop to start off the recap: I understand our stars learned as early as Friday when they would be dancing during "My Jam Monday."

So, for example, Prince Farming Chris Soules knew before the weekend that he'd get to kick off tonight's show while Lady Marmalade herself (a.k.a. Patti LaBelle ) was rewarded the last dance of the evening well in advance of tonight's performance.

Now put the shoe on the other foot: What could be more disheartening than knowing that you aren't strong enough to open or close the night – and realizing how your middle-of-the-show positioning brings you closer to the ol' heave-ho?

So, which dancers proved they might be worthy of prime placement next week? And what about the contestants whose so-so performance last week put them at risk of elimination? Read on for the night's highlights and to see who came close to leaving DWTS first.

Are Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec and DWTS Pro Kym Johnson an Item?

Originally posted 03/18/2015 07:45PM

It looks like Shark Tank star Robert Herjavec and his Dancing With The Stars pro partner Kym Johnson may have taken their chemistry off the dance floor.

At a March 16 afterparty for the season premiere at Hyde Kitchen + Cocktails in L.A., the DWTS duo were spotted "canoodling," according to an onlooker.

"They came in holding hands and were caressing each other's backs," says the source

The pair, who arrived together, "were having a good time and enjoying each others company," a second source tells PEOPLE.

Suzanne Somers's DWTS Blog: I Feel Like Lucy Ricardo When I Blow a Step

Originally posted 03/17/2015 12:40PM

Actor and best-selling author Suzanne Somers, best known for her role as Chrissy Snow on Three's Company, has been paired with pro Tony Dovolani for season 20 of Dancing with the Stars. She'll be blogging for PEOPLE about her experience on the hit ABC show.

For the first time in 25 years, we introduced a brand-new ThighMaster, called the ThighMaster Vibrato. It vibrates! One of the producers came up with the idea of choreographing my first number around the ThighMaster. I believe it was the producers who chose "Physical." Perfect!

The ThighMaster is a big part of my exercise routine. I use it for my upper body workout, as well, and I always have one when I travel. Charities I support auction off autographed ThighMasters (that I have used), so I have likely owned 100 or more.

Dancing with the Stars Recap: Which Celebrity Brought Down the House – and Attracted Big Stars?

Originally posted 03/16/2015 11:00PM

It was a big night in the ballroom – and not just because John McClane and GI Jane were in the house! Monday's installment of Dancing with the Stars kicked off the first of what the network promised would include lots of action-packed tributes to the show's 10th anniversary.

The premiere episode didn't disappoint. There were lots of contemporary tunes ("Uptown Funk," "Take Me to Church"), plenty of showstopping choreography (Derek Hough, so glad you stuck around this season!) and even quadruple hanky moments (welcome to the ballroom, Army vet and amputee Noah Galloway!).

No 9s or 10s were awarded just yet, but a couple of celebrities sure came close to earning some high scores. Here's how the new contenders fared on night one:

Dancing with the Stars: Will Suzanne Somers Incorporate the Thighmaster into Her Cha Cha?

Originally posted 03/13/2015 05:10PM

Who says Thighmasters and ballroom dancing can't mix?

Certainly not Suzanne Somers, one of the 12 celebrities who will participate in the 20th season of Dancing with the Stars. PEOPLE has learned that Somers, 68, will incorporate the exercise tool that she made famous in the '90s into her opening night performance.

The plan is to somehow feature the device that's supposed to exercise the hip adductors into her cha cha with partner Tony Dovolani. They'll do it while dancing to Olivia Newton-John's "Physical."

In this video, Somers – who will also blog exclusively for PEOPLE this season – demonstrates to her partner how to properly utilize the device.

"I happen to be an expert in this," Somers tells Dovolani. "I think we are going to have a lot of fun."
