Kristin Cavallari's Night of Cocktails & Conversation

Originally posted 10/14/2011 05:50AM

Recently ousted Dancing with the Stars contestant Kristin Cavallari turned heads as she arrived to Trousdale Lounge in L.A. with a girlfriend. The romper-clad starlet made her way to the backroom, where her pals were waiting. Once she got back there, she let out a small scream, ran up and gave a guy friend a hug. The two carried on a short conversation – then Cavallari approached a group of friends, which included Chris Evans, and kissed them on the cheeks and started chatting. "She was in a great mood, smiling with a drink in-hand," an observer says. – Jennifer Garcia

What's in a name? For Team Drickilous, hopefully fancy footwork skills to go along with their fun attitude!

Dancing with the Stars contestant Ricki Lake and her partner Derek Hough have unveiled their team name for the season, and it's "Drickilous."

Though the former talk show host has been using "Drickilous" as a tag on her Twitter page recently, she and Hough officially introduced the name in a video posted on her Facebook page Thursday. A giggly Lake, 42, and a deadpan Hough, 26, explain that they combined his first initial and her name to create the new moniker, pronounced "Dee-riculous."

Cheryl Burke and her fellow Dancing with the Stars castmate Maksim Chmerkovskiy are very close. But they’re not dating, Burke says – despite rumors of romance.

The pro dancers were spotted getting cozy in Las Vegas recently, where they visited with other friends. But looks can be deceiving.

"We have a good time," Burke, 27, told PEOPLE while celebrating her belated birthday at Palazzo Las Vegas's Azure Luxury Pool. "We've known each other since we were kids. We have that brother and sister relationship."

Fat Actress? Not Kirstie Alley!

All the Dancing with the Stars finalist, 60, can do is rave about her post-ballroom body.

"We're doing our dance tomorrow, and you have to wear the costume you wore [during] the first dance that you did," Alley told PEOPLE backstage after Monday night's show. "We had to take a lot of inches out of that costume, which was fun."

The word "instant" usually sounds promising. Instant messenger, instant replay, instant rice. However, instant dance? Doesn't have the same ring to it.

This week we have the infamous instant dance, where we learn choreography, but won't know the song we'll be sweating to until minutes before we perform live on Monday. In a way, the instant dance sounds like an oxymoron considering it feels like we learn every dance almost instantly. As I write, Team Kanenball is two days into learning two very unrelated routines.

Dance Uno: The Slow Waltz. A refined and romantic dance to a stunning song.

Dance Dos, the instant Salsa, which sounds delicious, but doesn't come with a margarita.
