Soap star voted off 'Dancing'

Shedding his shirt didn’t help Aiden Turner stay on “Dancing With the Stars.” Last night, the soap star was eliminated from the competition after performing a rumba that pleased a boatload of fans in the rehearsal footage, but didn’t get enough support from the judges and viewers.

Turner, who on last week’s results show said he was so nervous that he threw up afterward, kept his lunch, but he looked upset about his exit and his voice broke at one point when he thanked his professional partner Edyta Sliwinska.

Comedienne Niecy Nash was the last celebrity contestant to be declared safe, but she was not necessarily in the bottom two, co-host Tom Bergeron said. So we don’t know for sure who received the second-lowest scores.

Once again, the producers seemed determined to keep Kate Gosselin - the contestant people love to hate - in limbo for as long as possible and she didn’t find out until the last few minutes that she would get at least one more week to dance. (If this continues, can somebody get her and Tony Dovolani a chair for next week’s results show?)

Elimination nights always seem to drag on a bit, but yesterday’s show had some highlights.

First, the film trailer parodies starring the contestants were funny - my favorite was “ChaChaBlanca,” a spoof of “Casablanca” that had Olympic champ Evan Lysacek yearning for Niecy Nash. Second, it was fun to see the cute photos and videos of the pros when they were kids. (It also makes you realize how much of their lives they have dedicated to competitive dancing - some of them have been doing this since they were 5.) And of course, Sade - smooth as ever.

On a separate note, some of you said yesterday that you don’t like the music selections on the show and I totally agree. It’s understandable that the producers want to keep the music modern and relatable to the viewers, but some of it just doesn’t work.

What did you think of the results?

    I've been browsing on-line greater than three hours lately, but I never found any fascinating article like yours. It's pretty worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    My guess, if DWTS comes back next season, they will have Octomom, Spencer or Russell on as the "reality" (not star) person who can't dance and shouldn't be there.

    I feel so sorry for Tony having Kate as a dance partner. Even if she doesn't have any experience in ballroom dancing, she should be good at faking it. Atleast smile Kate....!! No, on second thought just go home.......

    Kate is the new Amarosa. Donald Trump used her because she was so hated. DWTS and Entertainment Tonight are using Kate for the same reason. People love a villain and Kate (as a lover only of herself who uses her children and everyone around her)...fits the bill.

    So Kate is being paid $200K to be bashed by the judges, ridiculed by the press and abused by Kate haters. She is still being paid and that means she is supporting her children. Would Kate still be getting all this hate if she had a more main stream job. I don't know about you but I don't know too many jobs that would pay you that kind of $ for a couple wks of abuse. She certainly couldn't make that kind of $, flippin' burgers for the 40 -60 hours a wk that she is "dancing". I bet if she were some high paid CEO of a company, working 100+ hours /wk, or a famous actress jetting around the world with her kids in tow w/ nannies and tutors, no one would give it a second thought. Why is she a bad mother for dancing for big $, instead of flipping burgers for min. wage? So she isn't the greatest dancer, either were a few other "stars" in past years. Leave her alone. Shame on you all for judging. Hold your head up high Kate. Some of us are rooting for you!

    I am so not a fan of the show in general as of now just because Kate is on there. I didn't like her on her first show, didn't like her controling ways on Jon and Kate +8( didn't like Jon either, before we go there!) and I really don't care for her on dancing with the stars. She is a complete embarrassment to all working moms and she reminds me of octamom! Just doing it for show and money and that is not the way to care for kids. Giving them your time and attention is caring, being there to disipline and nurture is caring and that is something that she displays as knowing nothing about right now in my eyes. Maybe you should get a real job Kate and stop trying to be something you are not which is a celebrity.

    It's a shame that these shows actually come down to a popularity contest instead of judging by "TRUE TALENT". I've read alot of the comments here and agree with most, that Kate does not have 1 "DANCING BONE" in her body and if fans voted according to talent, the first to be elimiated would have been between Kate and Buzz. They actually should have been the 1st and 2nd eliminated stars. Kate, you really and truly need to be home more for your kids. You may not really realize it, but you are MISSING ALOT of LITTLE THINGS that you can never get back.

    I can't believe Kate is still on the show. She should have been canned the first round. Anyone can walk around and pretend it is dancing but even she is not good at that. I am tired of her little sympathy getting boo-hoos she likes to display to get viewers votes but it would be hard to convince me that the producers don't have the final say as to whether she stays or goes. She needs all the publicity she can get for her new book and the new tv show she managed to snag. I've watched this show from its inception and I have come to believe it is rigged. Several winners over the years were far from being the ones who should have been awarded the trophy, especially last year and the years that Mario Lopez and Gillis Marini lost. Personally, I'd like the see those vote numbers so that I can be convinced it isn't rigged.

    I really love the comments about her being a working mom. REALLY? You call cashing in on your kids, working? She has been doing this (along with her dork DH) for about ummm, THEIR ENTIRE LIFE? I know 8 kids are cash cow for her but really, now she needs to also spend her time dancing to make money (laugh, I mean, walking) on stage, to make money? That women sees more MONEY in a 6 month period than I do and the LAST thing I will do is say, "Poor Kate"... I am a working mom and I have to be because I don't make money off my kids the way she did. So as far as I'm concerned, she is doing this for KATE, not Kids.

    I also don't think people are hating as much as its about freakin talent. Its a DANCING SHOW not a walking show... She isn't a dancer obviously so she has no business being there! I'm just going to be mad if someone that has potential gets kicked off instead of her!

    Someone needs to remind the producers who seems determined to keep Kate on the show that they tried rigging the results once before. It was during the first season and there was an outcry from the your viewers. The soap star from General Hospital missed steps on the final performance and at the end of the dance she didn't even complete all the steps, yet she still won. Are you willing to take the chance on this again? Your ratings are higher than "Idol" now and you have had serious success. Seems unwise that you would take such risks at this point. Your viewers do not enjoy her and she looks
    plenty miserable. Put her out of her misery and bring us back the
    great enjoyment you have given your viewers for several seasons and more to come.

    Again Kate is all about the dumbing down of America. People have no clue so they eat up the b.s. she spews despite the reality of her actions and words. They vote for her, think she is misunderstood, etc despite the same issues coming up again and again with different people. I hope one day my 2 little girls have more role models and people to look up to then some reality show shrew that treats people badly and who is rewarded for beign a horrible wife and Mom.

    Kate needs to go home to her children. I think it's a shame she's using her kids as a crutch to stay on TV. Her kids need her. I don't think I've ever seen such a phony person. I'm sure she loves the kids but she is not showing it. As a mother I like seeing my children everyday. Providing financially doesn't make you a good mom.

    I wonder how often she sees them. I doubt it's even once a week. My heart goes out to the kids. They must be suffering terribly. She can't complain when the kids misbehave. As a parent I know that if you aren't there to raise your children you can't complain when they misbehave. I know they will misbehave when she's around. That will be the only way they will get her attention.

    My heart goes out to those poor kids. God bless them....

    @Carol – Reality Check time !
    1. "She needs a lot of money to support these kids" – well then she ought to stop spending so much money on herself !!! And what about all the money they made from J & K & 8 – guess she blew through that for all the nannies.
    2. "She is home with them during the week and only goes to L.A. for the show, she practices at home while they are at school" – except for when she decides to run out and have mani/pedi and everything else she does for herself and when she is out at night – her partner Tony has said she skips out of rehearsal time for personal trips a lot. And as anyone saw on J & K & 8, even when the kids are home, she doesn't spend time with them except to yell at them and tell them to stay away.
    3. "The cast seems to like her a lot." That's the funniest line of all – who do you think likes her? Every interview says that she is difficult and a diva and that no one, including her partner, likes her. They don't congratulate her at the end of her dances or anything.
    Maybe what we want from her is a little humility and a whole lot of apologies for all her bad behaviour !!!

She needs a lot of money to support these kids so why not do any TV show she can do to reach that goal. She is home with them during the week and only goes to L.A. for the show, she practices at home while they are at school. What more do you want from her? The cast seems to like her a lot.

    This is my first posting ever so forgive me if there is some unwritten etiquitte I'm not following. I'd like people to get the facts straight about ABC (owned by Disney) owning TLC. ABC (owned by Disney) does NOT own TLC. (Yes, I am shouting for those of you who insist that ABC owns TLC.) TLC is owned by Discovery Communications LLC. It has it's own ticker symbol, corporate headquarters, everything and none of these are in any way associated with Disney. Having been a Disney fan all of my life and stock holder for almost 20 years, I do try to keep up with what Disney owns or spins off (such as Citadel). I really don't care if you like or dislike Kate (personally I dislike the cow) , but please don't bring Disney into the hate mongering by associating them with TLC.

    I am so sick of reading these comments regarding Kate. If she should stay home and watch her kids, then all the working mothers in the world should do the same. What about angelina, should she stop working and stay home and watch her kids. I agree that Kate can not dance and should have been voted off before Aiden. Niecy should also have been voted off before Aiden.
    I think many people have formed opinions of Kate from their show. I think she had to be controlling, she just couldn't count on Jon to do anything. He needs the kids now to bring some money to the table for him. Kate works to support her family, Jon just parties.
    I have a husband that also needed to be controlled. I have stopped controlling and just let him do what he wants and I live my life myself. My kids are grown and out of the house so it doesn't really matter what he does or doesn't do.

    Good riddens to Aiden and his smart lip…that’s what you get for talking about Beckham..:)

    I am so glad Kate is still on. I don’t normally vote but voted to keep her on. She evidently has no rhythm and is struggling like an infant learning to walk….its all natural and I see growth in her. DWTS should be about bringing someone with absolutely no skills and watching them progress. She is getting better and I am proud of her.

    I personally think Nicole and the figure skater need to hit the road because they are professional dancers and are more advanced than the others.

    Those saying she’s a disgrace to working mothers and dancing isn’t a job…please tell me if the other stars donate their earnings to the Red cross or some charity of their choice… no fools!!!.. Its taken as income. Jealousy really isn’t healthy.

No one would have issues with her if she didn't a) treat people so badly in the process of the things she does and b) didn't cry and complain about bad her life has gotten in the pubic eye only to keep putting herself back out there. She brings it upon herself.....with how she treated Jon, with how she treats her partner ont the show, with how she complains, etc. If she was a nice Mom who was struggling she would be fan fave.

    When is Kate going to be gone?

    I have watched every episode of Dancing but this episode is full of unhappy people. I watched in the past because the show was full of fun and made me feel happy. The in house nastiness is making me not want to watch anymore.

    Bleh. Seriously, for all the people defending Kate, please stop voting for her? The lack of dancing skills and the constant angryface just make my eyes hurt every time she gets out there on the dance floor. It's like Master P from...what, the second season? Something like that.

    SO agreeing with the music thing though. Oh my god, so agreeing. Sure, keep it hip or whatever but don't choose songs you have to force into a dance rhythm. It's one thing to choose, say, Bad Romance for a paso doble (because the rhythm's honestly perfect for it - that or a tango) and a whole different ball of wax to force Love Game into being a samba. Just pick the latin music and be done with it already.

    I don't hate Kate. I just hate her dancing.

    People who recognize she is the worst dancer on the show (worst one ever to be on it, IMHO) on the show but want to support her because they empathize with her on some level are like those people who want awards to be given out to all students in a school, not just those who actually did something to earn the award, so as not to damage a child's self-esteem. Kate is a grown up, chronologically at least, and if she gets dumped from the show I'm sure she will be disappointed, as any contestant would be, but she will pick up and move on. She doesn't need to be protected from this.

    I agree about the music. I've always complained about it, but this year it is especially bad. It would be much easier for the contestants to make a dance work if they had music that actually reflected the rhythm and mood of the dance. The pros of course can dance to anything, but for someone just learning, music with the proper beat can be a huge help.

    @Patty – what CMiller and many of us are saying is not that she is just away from her kids, it's that she does nothing but whine about it all the time and say that she is doing this for the kids. Try to understand – most of the dancers have family they don't get to see but they don't spend all their time saying poor poor pitiful me like Kate does. And if it's all for the kids, then she needs to stop spending so much time when she's not on the show doing all her "me" things. I have kids and I work, but I spend time with my kids. But with as much as Kate is in NY and CA and elsewhere, when is she seeing her kids ???? I'm sure those kids don't want things, they want attention !!!! I say, good for Jon, I hope he gets custody so at least they'll have the parent that pays attention to the kids !!!

    Of course the producers want to keep Kate around. She is ratings gold. When ever her time to dance comes on, she is either last or next to last. So views stay around, more ad revenue. The votes have to be manipulated in order keep Kate on, judging from the posts here, more that not dislike Kate. Her dancing is quite bad, bordering on atrocious.

    I agree that the show is rigged. But I figured it out a couple of seasons ago. How in the world did Donnie win last year? I think the viewers calls are used to judge who get the most attention, and then they decide who to keep or let go. As far as Kate, she is no worse than Chad Ochocinco....and he is a bigger jerk than she is! She is difficult for her partner and I'm sure he would like to get it over with. She will collect her $200,000 and get started on her new show. Ex husband Jon is a real loser. I wonder, is he paying child support?

The fact that it was fake was so obvious since she had that sour look on her face the whole time, never even looked at Jon once during the ceremony and they didn't even kiss). He was living in an apt. over the garage for months before they announced they were divorcing, which was Kate's decision – she refused marriage counseling and told him to do what he wanted – she would have gone on pretending they were married for the money !!!

A lot of people are being completely unfair towards her and are just looking for negative things to say against her. Yet she keeps going on no matter how bad she dances or how embarrassing it is for her she continues to do it. People admire that kind of moxy and that's why she'll continue to stay on the show. It’s when they get down to the really good dancers will she finally be eliminated.

    Don't watch the show, just look at the results to see if Kate has been voted off yet. However, I wish people would stop saying she is a bad mother because she is working away from her children. So, all women who travel for their job are bad parents? No, matter what she does it for traveling away from your children to provide for them does not make you a bad mother. If it does than why are stay-at-home moms looked down upon? Society has to make up its mind "what makes a good mother?"

    I also agree with everyone else on the blog, that Kate does not deserve to be living in a multi-million dollar house because she took fertility drugs. However, the fans of the show, just like the people commenting on this blog are the people who put her there. So, now we have to deal with Kate.

    Did you hear she will have two shows on TLC soon? One where she steps into the shoes of other moms and takes on their lives. The other is the kids are coming back in special adventures. So, I guess we will get to see them grow-up anyway. Guess, Jon can't live without the money and decided TLC wasn't hurting his kids.

    For those Kate Plus 8 earnings, trust funds have to be set up for the kids so its not easy for the parents to just access. That's a child labor law..What's disgust is this Kate woman. She's childish, and thinks she's some diva..If her husband has to pay her $20K a month in child support, (now who can actually pay that?) Why can't she more than provide for her kids? She's done damage to her kids by being in afront of a camera 24/7..Why doesn't she grow up and get a real job, and take care of those kids. America doesn't owe them a living...She and Jon do.

    As for ABC, I'd love to know how those numbers are tabulated. I think they are messing with the results...I wonder who monitors that??

    I am done with DWTS. It has to be rigged. I used to love the show but the last few seasons have been questionable and this current season just reinforced the rig factor for ratings. KG should have never been there but keep in mind that DWTS beat out american Idol.

    I believe I posted yesterday that the 2 possible to go home were Nicey & Aiden. I think Kate isn't being kept around by the producers, she is being kept around by those that see she is trying & isn't the nasty wench many of you have portrayed her as. Remember, it was her husband that left the family & had a fling or 2 before the divorce was final, not her.

    @Mary. The husband, who is no winner in his own right, wouldn't have to be paying her an obscene anmount monthly if she didn't browbeat him into divorce. She is a horrible person. People need to separate him and her. Just because he is horrible doesn't make her any less horrible. She sells her kids for money. She is never with her kids. She was jetting around before they got divorced. She has a new show where she will be traveling. The bottom line is she is all about being on TV and money...not about her kids. If she didn't want the press she would go back to nursing and live her normal life.

    @Mary – Jon's only a deadbeat because Kate pushed him to it. Jon had a job but Kate made him quit so she didn't have to deal with the kids. Then she proceeded to treat him worse than a dog. Have you even watched Jon & Kate & 8? How do you think your husband (if you have one) would react to being treated that way in public? I know mine wouldn't have stood for it !! Jon should have given it right back to her, but he took the high road and didn't seek to humiliate her publicly. And when he got caught out with another woman, it was months after Kate had kicked him to an apt. over the garage and told him their marriage was over. And in case you don't realize it, she's not paying for their upbringing either – they have funds set up for the kids (although I'll bet Kate has hit those accounts to pay for her own personal lavish life). I'm so tired of hearing that Kate is some kind of saint for putting up with Jon, when I think Jon deserves a medal of honor for staying with that shrew as long as he did !!! He's the only one who has ever taken care of the kids (other than the team of nannies) – all Kate did was use them to get what she wanted – trips and freebies from TLC.

Come on America, we are passing through a time when bankers and corporations are making billions while millions more are losing jobs and homes. These shows make millions for their sponsers and producers. Your vote matters no more than big business cares about your future security. Of course, ignorance is bliss.

That is why I don't feel an OUNCE of pity for either one of them. In fact, they so deserve each other and need to just get back together. They are TWO of a kind.

    Kate is a joke and anyone that truly believes she is receiving votes from dancing fans is dillusional. It's quite obvious that the 'votes' are rigged and the producers are deciding. No way does Kate have that many fans. If she does then they are doing her a huge disservice by continuing to make her look like more of a fool than she already is. Stop voting for her so she can quit crying about all the trouble in her life and how she has so much on her mind that it's hard to concentrate on dancing.

After last night, when she didn't get voted off again, I believe the rumor. She is horrible! Buzz couldn't dance, but at least he smiled and we didn't have to hear his sob stories every week.

    Due to viewers dislike of Kate, they are probably voting for her to keep her in her own 'private hell'. She thought another reality show would another cash cow but did not realize she would have to work extremely hard for it this time. She is by far the worst dancer I have seen since season one.

Not every waltz has to be Strauss, but please let's have a real waltz now and then. Same for the tango – there are so many beautiful ones – Jalousie, Blue Tango – give us a break. I like Edyta but she doesn't have much luck with her partners, does she? She spends much time im her own poses one hardly notices the poor partner. It seems to be Edyta and partner, not partner and Edyta. As for those breathtaking costumes, I am holding my breath hoping the won't fall off! I'm surprised Kate's still on.

    Kate (plus 8), needs to go – HELLO, not only can't she dance but what a complainer. Look Kate, you want to be in the limelight so don't complain about the Papparazi!!!!!!! And the music, please can somebody play some real RUMBA music – what is up with that?

    Edyta has been there since the beginning and I love her. It is time they give her a better partner so she can be around longer than a few episodes.

    There is no way this show is not rigged. The judges can use – or not use – the number of viewer votes as they like.

    Kate should have been kicked to the curb weeks ago. Her feet are like blocks of wood. And I'm sick of her continual whining.

    Most parents have jobs – in part at least – because they have children to support. So what makes her so special?

    Jon is paying her $21,000 per month. She is getting $100,000 monthly from TLC. She could earn as much as one million from her newest book.

    So why is she hurting for money? She is addicted to the spotlight. I feel so sorry for those children. They are going to need years of therapy.

    Kate must go! All she does is whine and complain. She is so fake and until she's gone, that's it, and I won't watch. I'll check on cnn to check the statistics and when she's booted, I'll be back. I've watched every season, but she's puts a big damper on the show...

    There must be an awful lot of voters who are simply giving Kate sympathy votes....why anyone would feel sorry for her is beyond me, but to each his own.

    I hated to see Aiden go...not sure who I'll vote for now...except I know it won't be Kate. Any woman (or man) that exploits their children the way she has isn't a "star" of any kind as far as I'm concerned. Add that to the fact that every week she whines more and more about her life (trying to get more sympathy votes?). Tony deserves a better partner than this whiny woman who doesn't just have 2 left feet...she's got 2 left wooden feet.

    Marta – Why do you like Kate? She's a whiner. It's painful to watch her 'dance'. She's been extremely disrespectful to Tony. She's not a performer. My impression from this show (and only this show) is that she's not a nice person, and very self-absorbed – a bad example for my girls.

    I don't care what is going on in her personal life, she has lacked professionalism preparing for this show.

    So why, oh why, does anybody like her? Somebody explain this to me please.

    Absolutely the worst dancer in the history is Kate.... She is absolutely horrid. I have never seen someone so bad.

    I watched this show for the first time the other night. I know nothing about dance but even I can see Kate is NOT a dancer and should have been eliminated. As for the show itself, why it is even on TV is beyond me. No fan here.

    If the producers want to keep the music relatable to the viewers, there would be nothing but golden oldies. The average age of this show's viewing audience has got to be about 60. So, just give them the music they want.

    The show is getting stale, so I guess we can expect more pathetic attempts to liven up this dinosaur. These people aren't "stars." If you have to Google them to find out who they are, then they aren't stars.

    DWTS has lost all integrety – I can't believe they keep a horrible dancer like Kate around. I don't watch anymore. Also, I don't think fans are voting for her – I believe the network is fudging the numbers.

    DWTS has got to be rigged – Kate should have been off from the very first elimination – don't even know why she is on the show. Definitely not a CELEBRITY – pain in the ......

    Kate Gosselin is such a phony baloney... why is she whining about her custody fight while rehearsing..... she has exploited her children to their detriment for her mighty buck... well Playboy didn't want her and neither do the rest of us....why is she even a public figure?? get rid of her as soon as possible so we are not part of her "o pitiful me" routine...

    All Kate has to do is a little crying and she can stay. I agree with above (Lisa), Kate got nothing...I mean nothing...no moves at all.

    I'm happy Kate made it through also. She is not a professional dancer and is trying hard. I don't expect her to win but I wish her well.

    KG is an insult to the REAL WORKING MOMS. I find it appalling that she refers to her DANCING stint as a JOB!!!!!! Anybody who can honestly say that she is providing a NORMAL life for her kids lives in lala land.
    Those kids will NEVER know normalcy
    Oh yeah, and she says she is DANCING to provide a better life for her kids. It will be interesting to see how these kids turn out about 10 years from now. Then she will probably blame their behavior on their DAD!!!!

    Mg, are you living under a rock? The ppl get kicked off from votes called in not from the producers... It's the viewers that have kept her on.

    LOL! @ all Kate haters....I'm so happy she made it through another round of elimination! LOL! Are you haters ready for at least two more weeks of Kate?

    If the show is not rigged, I guess Kate has more fans than haters? I think the producers should announce how many votes every contestant got to make it look more legit. Because right now it looks like the show is somehow fixed.

    I agree with kma & mg.....I haven't watched this season and don't plan to until Kate is gone. I do read each week to see who got elimitated and until I see it was Kate I guess I will just keep reading and watching American Idol. Kate is by no means a "celebrity". Her 15 minutes of fame were up along time ago....and she didn't even deserve that!!

    This show has to be rigged, there is no way Kate should still be on.
    she dances like her feet weigh 50 pounds, no grace, no style and no personaltiy. what kind of crying and whining will she do next week....
    DWTS used to be a good entertaining show.
