Tonight someone will win the mirror ball trophy on “Dancing With The Stars.” Given the fact that the judges are loving Rob Kardashian and he’s in the final three (along with talk show host Ricki Lake and soap actor JR Martinez), the lone brother in the Kardashian Klan could end up winning the whole thing.
At this point, he’s pretty much the most well-liked Kardashian. Kim sort of ruined her good will with the public once she announced her split from Kris Humphries and perhaps the world is just tired of Kourtney and Khloe’s shenanigans. Rob has done what his sisters couldn’t: he’s earning headlines for actually doing something, not someone.
Over the course of the show, Rob has acquired a skill. He can now ballroom dance, making him, quite possibly, the only Kardashian with an actual talent. Since the Kardashians launched themselves as international sensations, the big question has also been: What exactly do they do? Sure they attach themselves to lots of brands, launching themselves as a brand as well, but, well, that really doesn’t mean much. Rob, on the other hand, joined “DWTS” and now he can dance. We mean, he may not do anything with it once the show wraps tonight, but he can. And, well, at least that’s something.
The Internet may actually melt down tonight. In a scenario not seen since a unicorn mated with a double rainbow and then bit its finger, Cher is slated to be in the audience of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" this week to cheer on her son, Chaz Bono.
Bono, who has had a remarkably solid run on the show despite some leg injuries, less-than-stellar dancing and early criticism from conservative groups about the inclusion of the first transgender dancer on the prime-time reality juggernaut, will also be getting some love from his stepmother, Rep. Mary Bono Mack, half-brother Chesare Bono, half-sister Georganne LaPiere Bartylak and girlfriend Jennifer Elia.
Chaz supporters and Cher fanatics have been waiting all season for the famously feather-loving movie star and pop icon to take a seat in the audience for the program. People magazine reported that Chaz confirmed the blessed news, spilling the beans that mommy dearest will watch the proceedings on Monday (October 10) night.
After ABC officially announced that Chaz Bono would become the first transgender person to appear on "Dancing With The Stars," Bono was viciously attacked by apparently transphobic Internet commenters across the blogosphere and on Twitter. Now his mother, music legend Cher, has responded, writing, " Mothers don't stop getting angry with stupid bigots who fk with their children!"
You tell 'em, Cher!
Cher then encouraged her fans to support Chaz on the show, and Bono thanked his mother for her support.
Cher went on to celebrate Chaz's courage for joining the primetime hit, and even retweeted a fan's supportive tweet that said Chaz "has the biggest ball of anyone on DWTS." Read on for more. Read More...

LOS ANGELES — While MTV News' visit to the set of "Dancing With the Stars" Thursday didn't feature a lot of dancing, we did get to speak with "Jackass" star Steve-O about his recent back injury, which will probably complicate his appearance on the show next week.
"We're working on figuring out the routine — and not doing a whole lot of it because my back's hurting me a lot," Steve-O told MTV News. He said he's not sure exactly how the injury happened. "My back is spasming and a nerve's been pinched and it's a big nightmare. We've got this really physical routine that's loaded up with stunts and tricks, and we're kinda waiting to practice them, maybe until we're on live TV," he said.
The "Jackass" star added that he's consulted a physical therapist and was heading to a chiropractor after our interview. He then took a moment to write the following statement on his BlackBerry (we even helped him spell "inflammation"!). Read More...
