Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is a mom, author, entrepreneur and star of MTV's Jersey Shore and Snooki & JWoww. She's blogging for PEOPLE.com as she competes on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars with new pro Sasha Farber.
This week Sasha and I are dancing the fox trot to "Buttercup."
It's such a sweet elegant dance, and Sasha did an amazing job with choreography which you guys will see this Monday night on Dancing with the Stars.
This week was so much fun rehearsing because at this point I feel like Sasha and I are old friends. Even though we take this competition seriously and want to do the best we can, we always remember to have fun and enjoy this awesome experience.

Playing Elizabeth Taylor had its sparkling perks for Helena Bonham Carter, who stars as the diamond-loving film icon in Burton and Taylor.
And they came from real-life partner Tim Burton.
"I had my birthday during [filming] so I cost him a lot of money," Bonham Carter said at a recent roundtable event with reporters. "It's funny how things educate you. I'm not really that interested in jewels. But I got a few jewels off ... [my] Elizabeth Taylor phase."

Still the most notorious movie of all time – for its record-setting cost overruns, for the scandalous extramarital affair of its two stars, and for how its out-of-control production brought down the entire administration of 20th Century-Fox – Cleopatra, with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, marks the 50th anniversary of its world premiere on June 12.
In tribute to the landmark, and Life magazine's lively coverage of the epic as the drama unfolded behind the scenes in Rome half a century ago, Life.com has assembled an eye-catching photo spread of several rare and even never-before-seen Cleopatra photographs by Paul Schutzer.
Titled Liz Taylor and Richard Burton on the Set of 'Cleopatra': Rare and Classic Photos, the layout shows the two stars at play not only with each other, but with their children during the making of what remains one of the great lavish spectacles the screen has ever seen.

Former child star worlds collided Thursday night on The Soup with hysterical results.
And while Lindsay Lohan didn't get rave reviews for playing Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's Liz & Dick, Danielle Fishel as Lohan as Taylor is a different story!
The upcoming Girl Meets World star, 31, in a tight-fitting, cleavage-baring black dress, filmed the skit for E!, telling viewers she "wanted to give you guys a little behind the scenes" of her process pretending to be the 26-year-old star, most famous this week for her bar fight in N.Y.C.
Going into a fictitious drunken tirade, Fishel sobs, screams, laughs and throws empty bottles in-between boozy sips.

Opposite Grant Bowler as Richard Burton, Lohan tackles one of Hollywood's most engaging – albeit tumultuous – relationships.

Completely miscast as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick, Lindsay Lohan makes a reckless but brave dive into a pool that anyone can see is empty. And yet she survives.
The Liz showcased in this unrevealing bio is Taylor in the years of her stormy, world-publicized life with Richard Burton (Grant Bowler). By this point in her career, nearing 40, the legendary beauty was giving way to the gauzy celebrity who sailed through decades on a golden barge rowed by paparazzi.

Exclusive excerpt from this week's PEOPLE Magazine:
Their union was born of scandalous infidelity on the 1962 set of Cleopatra – even the Pope condemned their "erotic vagrancy." Over the next 14 years Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton courted, married, divorced, rewed, and split again. They made 11 films together, but it was their off-screen pyrotechnics that made them the talk – and favorite tabloid fodder – of Hollywood. Gossip had it that they were much like the drunken, cheating couple in their screen triumph Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? But in his diaries, Burton maintains they were faithful and, despite the rows, very much in love. A natural storyteller who didn’t care much for getting dates or punctuation exactly right, he offers a heartfelt inside view of the glamour and tumult that was Liz and Dick.

Lindsay Lohan's performance as Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie Liz and Dick has already gotten at least one rave review.
"She's pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated," says her costar Grant Bowler, who plays Taylor's on-again-off-again husband, Richard Burton, in the clip above. The actor adds that Lohan was "excellent to work with" on the film.
For her part, the often-troubled starlet says that she can identify with the late Taylor. "I relate to her on a lot of levels," says Lohan. "Living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it's true or not."

As the most famous celebrity couple of the '60s – if not the 20th century – Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were known as the "Battling Burtons" during their two tumultuous marriages and divorces.
Now, Lindsay Lohan, who has been known to face some battles of her own, is assaying the role of the violet-eyed, little-girl-voiced beauty who captured the hearts of millions, to say nothing of that of the lusty Welshman who could always act rings around his costars. (Watch the trailer below.)
Just how well LiLo comes off as La Liz, and True Blood's Grant Bowler as Dick, can be sampled in a 30-second trailer for the Lifetime TV movie Liz & Dick.
