Robert Herjavec on DWTS Pro Kym Johnson: 'I Can't Imagine Doing This with Anyone Else'

Originally posted 04/21/2015 01:00AM

After a disappointing performance on last week's episode of Dancing with the Stars, Robert Herjavec and pro Kym Johnson found themselves in jeopardy of being booted off the show on Monday night.

In light of loud whispers that the Shark Tank star and his coach have been taking their partnership to new, romantic levels, it should come as no surprise that the threat of elimination only fueled their desire to stay on the show.

Dancing with the Stars Recap: Spring Break Night

While Dancing with the Stars' "Spring Break Night" had some skin-baring outfits, unlike many coeds' wild getaways, it was memorable.

Front-runners like Riker Lynch, Nastia Liukin and Rumer Willis continued to pull ahead, but not all of the competition did so hot individually. Lucky for the underdogs, there's strength in numbers, and this week's group performances gave everyone a boost.

Dancing with the Stars Recap: Who Dazzled on Disney Night?

Originally posted 04/14/2015 12:55AM

While an obvious plug to the show's parent company, Disney Night made for some of the most inventive routines yet – not to mention some of the most creative costumes yet (Prince Farming in a skirt! Rumer Willis in full-on purple body paint!).

Paying homage to Disney favorites both new and old, the stars channeled their favorite characters while animated support "joined them," appearing on-screen at home. A cute idea in theory, it usually just took attention away from the performance or was so fleeting it was easy to be forgotten.

The night got a slow start, but the final three stars of the night – Rumer, Riker Lynch and Nastia Liukin – hit the ballroom floor with sets to remember. Elsewhere, opener Suzanne Somers and Robert Herjavec, uh, Floundered.

Read on for the highlights of Dancing with the Stars' Disney Night.

Dancing with the Stars Recap: The Stars Share Their Most Memorable Year

Originally posted 04/06/2015 11:00PM

Routines themed around the Stars' most memorable years made for good video packages but not-so-inspired dances. I mean, how do you adequately pay homage to an IED attack?

Judge Len Goodman certainly wasn't in the mood for sob stories: the ol' boy was grumpy all night and didn't seem to like anybody, least of all Rumer Willis, who performed a brilliant waltz as a snub to all her early haters.

Then again, anybody can have a bad night in the ballroom. Witness: Michael Sam and Riker Lynch, who both found themselves in jeopardy by the end of Monday's episode.

Before you learn the guys' fate, check out a sampling of the performances from a night of memories (as well as a few moments we'd love to forget).

Robert Herjavec Opens Up About His Relationship with Dancing with the Stars Partner Kym Johnson

Originally posted 03/24/2015 11:35AM

Their chemistry almost made Carrie Ann Inaba nauseous!

The Dancing with the Stars judge was kidding, of course – but there was no denying the connection between Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson during their foxtrot Monday.

In the wake of speculation that the Shark Tank star had taken his partnership with Johnson to a new level, PEOPLE asked the duo to talk about how well they work together and whether their off-screen canoodling was just for the cameras.

"I don't do anything for publicity," Herjavec said. "From the moment I met her, I love hanging out with her. We are having a great time."

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.

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.

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:

A rapper, an openly gay pro football player, an amputee veteran and, um, Lady Marmalade will help Dancing with the Stars celebrate its 10th anniversary.

And great news for fans of Derek Hough – the five-time mirror ball winner will participate after all! Hough was cast to play the male lead in New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall this spring, but he will split his time between New York and Los Angeles. (It's nice to be so young and nimble!)

Eleven celebrities and their pro partners were revealed Tuesday on Good Morning America. The show still needs to find one more male star to pair with Witney Carson, the reigning champion.

Here are the stars:
