Melissa Gilbert Glad to Exit Dancing with the Stars on 'a High Note'

Originally posted 05/09/2012 10:50AM

Melissa Gilbert and Roshon Fegan were sent home from Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday's double elimination – and Gilbert, for one, is already dealing with the fallout.

"This is cake number three," Gilbert, who celebrated her 48th birthday on Tuesday, said when she was presented with a birthday cake on Good Morning America Wednesday morning. "And I'm not dancing anymore, so this is going right to my thighs."

Gilbert, who said she hadn't slept since the results were announced the night before, acknowledged that she and her coach, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, were disappointed about the elimination, but said she was pleased with her performance this week.

Dancing with the Stars: Melissa Gilbert, Roshon Fegan Booted in Double Elimination

Originally posted 05/08/2012 10:10PM

There were some serious shakeups on the Dancing with the Stars leader board after the remaining six couples in the competition each completed two dances on Monday night.

One week after scoring a perfect 30, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough made a surprising appearance in second-to-last place. Meanwhile, Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower – who danced for their lives last week – climbed to second. But with only six points separating William Levy and Cheryl Burke in first place and Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy in last, it's really anyone's game.

At the end of Tuesday night's double elimination episode, which two couples were sent packing and which four will go on to next week's semi-finals? Read on to find out ...

There are six couples remaining on Dancing with the Stars – but not for long!

After Tuesday's elimination show (9 p.m. ET), only four semi-finalists will remain. Those odds aren't great but high-scoring couples like William Levy and Cheryl Burke, who delivered a perfect foxtrot on Monday, have a better chance.

Then again, low scores aren't necessarily an indication of elimination. Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were at the bottom of the leaderboard last week but escaped the bottom two and the dreaded dance duel.

Dancing with the Stars: William Levy, Cheryl Burke Perform Perfect Foxtrot

Originally posted 05/07/2012 10:45PM

The semi-finals are just a week away on Dancing with the Stars. But to get there, the six remaining couples had to perform two dances each on Monday night – and will have to survive a double elimination on Tuesday. (Spoilers ahead!)

In the first round of competition, William Levy and Cheryl Burke landed atop the leader board with a high-energy foxtrot that earned a perfect score. "You bring these performances to life," Carrie Ann Inaba told the couple. "There was care in technique and flare in the movement," added Len Goodman.

In a close second were Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower, who barely survived last week's dance duel. Their foxtrot earned 29 points and had Bruno Tonioli gushing. "The sweetest of sweethearts," he called them. "What you've done in a week is incredible."

Melissa Gilbert: I'm Amazed We've Made It This Far on Dancing with the Stars

Hello everyone!

Well here we are at week eight of Dancing with the Stars! And we made it without ever having to do the dance duel!

Honestly, I am amazed that we've made it this far. You fans surprise us every week. I still can't believe that we've even never been in the bottom two. I really hope that happens again, because this week's double elimination falls on my birthday – my 48th to be exact. So keep voting like crazy, please!

Our dances this week are a lot of fun. First I have a fox trot with Maks to "Maggie May" by Rod Stewart. Our story for the dance follows the lyrics: nasty cougar takes advantage of sweet, studious young man. There might even be a little kiss in their somewhere.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy: I'll Never Please the Dancing with the Stars Judges

It was another low-scoring week for Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Melissa Gilbert, who came in last place with 21 points for their tango on Dancing with the Stars Monday night.

But unlike in seasons past, a usually outspoken Chmerkovskiy says he's not upset, because he expects judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman to deliver tough critiques at this point.

"With a smile on my face and a happy, happy, happy, happy, happy heart, [I'll say] there's nothing we can do right by them, and it is what it is," the professional dancer told reporters backstage after Monday night's show. "Let's be realistic. If we make it to the [dancing duel], we're out. That's a fact, no matter what we do."

Melissa Gilbert: Injured Maksim Has to Rely on Me

Hi all! I'm hoping everyone had a nice, productive week sprinkled with fun, family and quiet time.

My personal rollercoaster ride on Dancing with the Stars continued this week. Though now, it seems I am riding a rollercoaster that is suspended from up above with loops and twists and turns that I simply cannot see coming. So, I am just along for the ride abandoning all semblance of control.

This last week saw Maks's injury become a real problem for "Team MGMC." It is a situation that is constantly fluid and constantly changing. We have back-up plans for our back-up plans (an ocean of thank yous to Val Chmerkovskiy). In that way, we do have a modicum of control.

Jaleel White and partner Kym Johnson got their groove back with a crowd-pleasing cha cha on Dancing with the Stars Monday – but some other contestants struggled to keep up with the competition.

Finding themselves in the bottom two once again, Roshon Fegan and partner Chelsie Hightower lacked sex appeal with their 23-point rumba. Meanwhile, Gladys Knight and partner Tristan MacManus scored an underwhelming 21 points for their rumba.
