Brooke Burke Charvet on Dancing's Semi-Finalists: It's Anybody's Game

Originally posted 11/14/2011 06:45PM

It's down to four on Dancing with the Stars – J.R. Martinez, Ricki Lake, Rob Kardashian, and Hope Solo. And Brooke Burke Charvet believes they all have a legitimate shot at the mirror-ball trophy.

"I've always thought that J.R. was a frontrunner. I think Ricki has a shot at it as well. I think it's going to be one of those finales where we don't know what's going to happen," the co-host of the ABC show told PEOPLE Saturday at the Harajuku Mini for Target launch at Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood.

But don't count out Kardashian and Solo, either.

Hope Solo: Maksim Chmerkovskiy 'Stood Up for Me'

Originally posted 10/31/2011 07:00PM

As far as Hope Solo is concerned, Maksim Chmerkovskiy's outburst last week on Dancing with the Stars was a case of a professional dancer loyally defending his charge.

"He's the only person who has seen my struggles – not the producers, not anybody else – and it's been a transformation," Solo tells PEOPLE.

"To put somebody down when they haven't even recognized how far they've come, I think Maks wasn't okay with that. And he's a true teammate and he stood up for me and I appreciated it."

Chaz Bono Is Not 'Bitter or Angry' About Leaving Dancing with the Stars

Originally posted 10/26/2011 04:00PM

After a tough night on Dancing with the Stars Monday, Chaz Bono and partner Lacey Schwimmer were fired up.

The angry duo said the judges' comments were "disrespectful," and pointed in particular to the way Bruno Tonioli compared Bono to a penguin in his critique.

But on Tuesday, when the pair was eliminated from the competition, it sure seemed like Bono and Schwimmer had put any hard feelings behind them.

"I was quite angry last night," Bono, 42, told reporters backstage right after his dismissal. "But I feel really good today. I'm not leaving the show bitter or angry or anything. I'm grateful for Lacey and everybody I worked with on the show. It was a wonderful, life-changing experience. I'm so glad I did it."

Dancing with the Stars: Another Contestant Goes Home

Originally posted 10/25/2011 10:05PM

Monday night was rough for Dancing with the Stars partners Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Hope Solo.

Aside from earning a score of 20 and being ridiculed for performing their "worst dance of the season," Chmerkovskiy, 31, didn't exactly charm viewers with his negative outburst in response to the judges' criticism.

But even though the duo had a less than stellar night, they still performed one point higher than fellow competitors Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer, who ended up at the very bottom of the leaderboard.

Were voters turned off by Chmerkovskiy's meltdown? Or did consistent low scorers Schwimmer and Bono bid the ballroom adieu?

He danced the rumba on Broadway night – then orchestrated a show-stopping fight.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy melted down Monday on Dancing with the Stars, railing against the judges – specifically Len Goodman – after receiving 20 out of 30 points for his routine with partner Hope Solo.

"Hope, I've never lost faith in you," Len said, after the dance to "Seasons of Love" from the musical Rent. "I always feel like there is so much there, and for some reason it hasn't come out."

Continued Goodman: "This is your worst dance of the season in my opinion."

But Maksim disagreed – and he didn't mince words.
