Bristol Palin fires back at foes on Facebook again, this time going after Margaret Cho….

Ladies….

Ladies…..

It’s over!

Neither of ya had a chance really…

Move on ….

We applaud you getting out there with your legs showing….

Bristol Palin fired back at Margaret Cho on a Facebook post late Saturday night.

[Cho and Palin…..]

Bristol Palin is firing back at her enemies on Facebook – again.

Sarah Palin‘s oldest daughter took to her Facebook page on Saturday night to slam a report that she had been forced to go on “Dancing With The Stars” to boost her mom’s popularity ratings.

Palin’s post hit back at a blog entry written last week by her former “Dancing” competitor, comedian Margaret Cho.

“Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election, and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do DWTS so that ‘America would fall in love with her again’ and make it possible for Sarah Palin to run in 2012,” Cho wrote.

Bristol slammed Cho’s comments in a note posted late Saturday night titled “Cha-cha-cha to Cho-Cho-Cho – Here’s a Hint: Three Dog Night.”

The abstinence advocate said she went on the reality show to get exercise and confidence – and her famous mother had no say in her decision.

Nicole and Derek Win 'Dancing With the Stars'…..

Congratulations!…..You two deserve it!……They can dance their behinds off!

Nicole Scherzinger and partner Derek Hough dominated throughout the 10th season of the hit ABC show and bested Olympic gold medalist Evan Lysacek to win the ”Dancing” crown Tuesday night.

Scherzinger performed a high-energy jive as her final dance that earned a perfect score of 30 and inspired head judge Len Goodman to say, ”There can only be one winner of ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ It should be you.”

Lysacek’s quickstep also earned the judges’ praise, but just 28 points.

”It’s been such a blast,” the champion figure skater said. ”We are totally satisfied with everything we gave. We’re so proud of Nicole and Derek. They deserve it. … They inspired all the other couples in the competition.”

Scherzinger and Hough kissed the mirrorball trophy as they were hoisted on the shoulders of other dancers.

ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews, the third finalist, and her professional partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated from the dance-off halfway through the two-hour season closer, leaving Lysacek and partner Anna Trebunskaya, and Scherzinger to face each other.

Earlier in the evening, all three pairs each danced an Argentine tango and earned glowing remarks from the judges.

Carrie Ann Inaba called Lysacek’s performance ”perfect” and Scherzinger’s ”like a beautiful masterpiece come to life.”

Though being on the show ”has meant everything” to Andrews, she said she knew the fight for the title would be between Lysacek and Scherzinger.

”I came here under really crummy circumstances,” Andrews said. ”I just wanted to be myself again.” Andrews was the victim of a stalker, who was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for following the reporter to at least three cities and shooting videos of her through hotel peepholes.

Gesturing toward Chmerkovskiy, she said, ”This one has just put my life back together, so I’m so thankful.”

Dancing with the Star's….. goes down another couple……

Niecy Nash and  Louis Van Amstel  have left…….

“You have molded this gorgeous clump of black clay into a dancer,” Niecy Nash said to pro Louis van Amstel at the start of Tuesday’sDancing With The Stars: The Results.

But Niecy was at the bottom of the celebrity pack going into the show.

Did she survive this week, just as she did last week, when Pamela Anderson was sent home in a surprising elimination?

No, Niecy was sent home. And the crowd let out a big groan at the news.

“I am a 40-year- old mother of three,” said the Reno 911 actress. “I got three C-sections on my belly! I was able to survive in this competition this long against some fantastic people. I cannot hula hoop with a Cheeriom and I’m one of the last women standing in this competition. I’ve had such a fantastic time living out my dream. I’m a happy girl.”

Heading to Monday’s semi-finals: Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough, Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya, Erin Andrews and Maks Chmerkovskiy, and Chad Ochocinco and Cheryl Burke.

Pam Anderson goes home from ‘Dancing with the Stars’….

The "Dancing with the Stars" results show on May 4 saw Pamela Anderson and partner Damian Whitewood sent home.

Injured and unable to entice with her sexual side…..Ms. Anderson and her dance partner, Damian Whitewood, was sent home last night…..

She had a good run….

But was found wanting……

“This has been one of the best experiences in my life,” said the actress, tearing up. “And that says a lot. I’ve had a lot of great experiences.”

Anderson and her partner Damian Whitewood were no strangers to the bottom two this season, but they had pulled themselves into the middle of the pack the past couple of weeks. Their waltz Tuesday only earned 24 points from the judges, but Bruno Tonioli described it as “the pure essence of romance.”

Monday night, it was revealed that Anderson was suffering from a “small” injury to her leg. She sat out an encore performance of her team’s Lady Gaga cha-cha, replaced by pro Chelsie Hightower, but vowed that if she made it through, she’d push through the pain to dance next week.

Joining Anderson in the bottom two was ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews — a shock considering her and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy‘s quickstep routine earned a 27 and wowed the judges, who dubbed it Erin’s best performance yet.

Judge Len Goodman said it was “nonsensical” and “heartbreaking” to see both Andrews and Anderson in danger.

Perhaps most disappointed with Anderson’s departure, however, was host Tom Bergeron, who said the show had tried to cast Anderson since season one and acknowledged the fact that he basically acts like a 12-year-old every time Anderson is around.

Plus, no more “asset” double entendres!

Dancing With The Stars recap…….

Here’s an Update from LA Times…….

We’re at the halfway point of Season 10, ballroom fans! Six weeks in, seven contestants left and a whole lot of seven paddles from Len.

This week upped the stakes even more for our contestants, as each couple had to perform two dances for Monday night’s program. And good thing for that second routine, because had the competition stopped after just Argentine tango or the samba, then we would have had a three-way tie for last place.

Thankfully, it was the inaugural swing dance marathon that helped make things interesting. Not to mention that it was a hoot and a half to watch. There’s just something so fun about swing, what with its big skirts and even bigger lifts and dancers being tossed around like rag dolls and twisted around their partners like human pretzels. And while the three-minute marathon may have been the equivalent of cardio hell week for the contestants, I sure appreciated the chance to watch each pair strut their stuff on the dance floor

‘Dancing with the Star’s’….Kate sent home…..She really had no business being there…

She told us she couldn’t dance from the jump….

And you know something?

She was right…..

But she sure can cry and alienate people…those are her best ‘brands’ and she’s good at them…..

1271854289_kate-gosselin-290.jpg

Kate Gosselin — who consistently bombed during her five-week run on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars— says she had a hunch she and partner Tony Dolovani would be eliminated on Tuesday’s show.

Despite being a fan fave, they had the lowest judges’ score, 15, on Monday’s show.

“I had a gut feeling and there was nothing making that gut feeling go away,” the reality mom, 35, toldEntertainment Tonight after getting the boot. “Everyone deserves to move on, and I had a good run and am really thankful for the opportunity

Though she claims she is OK leaving, her eight children “will be upset, definitely,” she said. “They will be shattered, in fact.” She said she is not “letting them watch” her elimination episode, so “they’ll be OK. They’ll be glad to have me back. I’m thrilled to have been here and obviously going back to my kids is always a wonderful thing.”

She said late on Jimmy Kimmel\’s show….

She echoed those sentiments later in the night on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, saying she was “not surprised” she got the boot.

Before the season began, she vowed to Kimmel that she was going “to win” the show. When he called her out for the remark after her elimination, she replied, “I always believe what I say … but then, like, that dancing stuff started.”

Added the mom, “To be very, very honest, if I didn’t have, as Tony says, three other lives going on then I probably could’ve done better.”

“It was a great adventure, it was a great ride,” she said on ABC’s Good Morning AmericaWednesday.

After getting voted off, “I was very upset,” she said. “I wanted to learn more, do more. At the same time, I knew it was my day yesterday.
