Sharna Burgess Is 'Angry' at Dancing with the Stars Judges for 'Berating' Andy Dick

Originally posted 04/30/2013 11:45AM

Andy Dick and his pro partner Sharna Burgess felt a little Dancing déjà vu on Monday, when the judges once again gave them a harsh critique.

"I'm angry, because, for example, Bruno – he stands up every week and says something mean to be funny," Burgess, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after Monday night's show. "You're here to be a judge, to tell us how to be better."

Burgess does commend judge Carrie Ann Inaba for her feedback.

"As far as her giving us a five, yeah, that sucked, but she had constructive criticism at least," Burgess said. "And if she put so much importance on those dead arms, then trust me, we won't have any next week."

Dancing with the Stars: Alexandra Raisman & Mark Ballas Join 10 Club

Originally posted 04/29/2013 10:30PM

The ballroom heated up on Monday night's Latin-themed Dancing with the Stars.

Seven weeks into the competition, almost all of the remaining couples came up with impressive routines. But it was Alexandra Raisman and Mark Ballas who landed their first 10s of the season, with a salsa that Len Goodman – who gave the pair a nine – called, "tasty and refreshing."

The pair got 10s from the other two judges, which put them at a total of 29 points out of 30. They also received an additional three points for winning a dance-off against Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess.

Raisman and Ballas tied with regular high-scoring duo, Derek Hough and Kellie Pickler, who wowed judges with their samba to Ricky Martin's "Shake Your Bon Bon."

Dancing with the Stars: Kellie Pickler Is Back on Top

Stevie Wonder was the guest of honor Monday night on Dancing with the Stars. Between performances by the iconic singer, the eight remaining couples competed with two dances each to his hits.

Once again, Kellie Pickler and Zendaya were atop the leaderboard – and both earned 10s for their respective routines.

Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy's cha cha to "Do I Do" was "full of snap, crackle and pop," according to Len Goodman. Carrie Ann Inaba called the routine "perfection in motion." They earned 29 points.

Kellie and Derek Hough's quickstep to "Part-Time Lover" was "the best dance I've seen on season 16," Len said. Carrie Ann added, "Everything about it was perfect except there was some space in your hold." They also earned 29 points.

But Kellie and Derek finished slightly ahead of Zendaya and Val after the second routine, a team dance in which four couples performed at the same time.

Dancing with the Stars: Andy Dick Stays Put, D.L. Hughley Goes Home

On Monday's Dancing with the Stars, frontrunner Zendaya earned the first 10s of the season and Karina Smirnoff performed with ex-fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy for the first time since their split.

But for Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley the night was a repeat of hearing harsh critiques from the judges.

Dick made a statement with a Zoro-themed entrance during his paso doble with partner Sharna Burgess, but the rest of his dance was panned. Hughley, too, failed to impress the panel with his and Cheryl Burke's tango. Both couples finished the night at the bottom of the leader board with 18 points.

At the end of Tuesday's elimination, Andy and Sharna were declared safe but D.L. and Cheryl were in jeopardy, along with soap star Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson and boxer Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold.

"Our thoughts are with everyone in Boston tonight," host Tom Bergeron said at the start of Monday's Dancing with the Stars. "My heart is with you."

After opening the show with those somber words of support for those affected by the tragedy in Boston, Dancing's hosts, judges, celebrities and professional dancers went ahead with the performance show, which featured Len Goodman's side-by-side challenge.

They remaining couples had to perform routines simultaneously with another pair of professionals – a tough task for all the dancers. But one pair managed to pull off the first 10s of season 16.

Originally posted 04/09/2013 10:10PM

Lisa Vanderpump survived her scary fall in Dancing with the Stars rehearsals last week, but can the same be said for Tuesday night's elimination?

Although she was sick and asked by doctors to sit out of rehearsals earlier in the day, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 52, went ahead and completed her cha cha with partner Gleb Savchenko on Monday. But the pair only managed to score 18 points, putting her at the very bottom, tied with Victor Ortiz and his partner, Lindsay Arnold.

Was Vanderpump or Ortiz the star who got sent packing at the end of Tuesday night? Or was someone else eliminated?
