Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, having won the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The pro dancer is now in her 16th season on the show, and will be blogging for PEOPLE about competing with actor and retired mixed martial arts fighter Randy Couture for season 19.

Preparations for this week have been going amazingly. I've been a fan of my partner, Randy Couture, for years. My dog, Randy Smirnoff, is named after Randy Couture! When I saw he was my partner, I was like, "Oh my gosh, my dad will be so excited." Randy's his favorite fighter, too.

Being an Olympic wrestler as well as an ex-soldier, Randy has discipline and dedication that are unbeatable. For a man of Randy's stature – he's tall, very muscular, very built – it's not the easiest thing to be light on the feet and to be a "twinkle toes." He's been working so hard and has made progress, and how much he's done since Day One is amazing. I'm very proud of him.

Things got real for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday night.

Breast cancer survivor Amber Marchese received stressful news after going to see her doctor for her five-year checkup.

"This is always a time of stress … you always fear the worst," Marchese said at church during Lent before her tests. "I'm always praying I'm healthy and have a long life with my children."

However, "the tests were inconclusive," an emotional Marchese told her husband after her doctor called about her bloodwork. "He wanted me to return for more testing … that's never happened. If I have a relapse, it doesn't look so good. You know that."
