Dancing With the Stars' Maksim Chmerkovskiy was photographed kissing fellow pro dancer co-star Peta Murgatroyd this weekend, sparking rumors of romance.

On Saturday at the Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas, Maksim was there celebrating with Peta, who won Dancing With the Stars with Donald Driver last week.

That wasn't the only time the hard-bodied pair and rumored couple were spotted together in Sin City. Witnesses have seen them together all over Vegas.

And, at the opening of Chmerkovskiy's new dance studio in Connecticut on May 23, the pair stood arm-in-arm while he whispered in her ear. Hmm ...

"She's had a crush on him for a long time," a source tells People of Peta. "They are really great together. And he is very happy. It's early but I think this will last. They're a great match, a good couple. She says they're not dating but they are. Everyone knows it."

Still, at the debut of the Dance With Me studio (which Maks opened with his brother Val and fellow pro Tony Dovolani), both danced around questions.

"I'm here to support Maksim," was all Murgatroyd would say about Chmerkovskiy, who wouldn't directly address the nature of their relationship either.

"I try to keep certain things private just because – what's a politically correct way of saying it? It's none of anybody's business," he said. "It's very intimate and personal."

Yeah. They're totally doing the horizontal Argentine tango.

Having effectively won through attrition weeks ago, Mitt Romney officially wrapped up the Republican nomination for president last night with a win in the Texas primary.

Romney's win put an end to the GOP primary as the former Massachusetts Governor began to ramp up his general election message against President Obama.

Just after 9 p.m., he Tweeted: "#1144. Thank You. Whatever challenges lie ahead, we will settle for nothing less than getting America back on the path to prosperity."

Mitt Romney Wins Primary

Despite surpassing the 1,144 delegate threshold, it was just a token evening for the presumptive nominee, whose rivals exited one by one over a month ago.

Only Ron Paul is still fighting for delegates. With the White House out of reach, he seeks a prominent role at the party's convention and in shaping its future.

Romney didn’t make a speech last night, but the win was nonetheless symbolic, making him the first Mormon to be a major-party candidate for the presidency.

The timing couldn’t have been better, as he is now being treated as an equal to Obama by the national media in what is sure to be a very close 2012 election.

He’s pulled almost even with the president in voter surveys, currently trailing by just two percentage points in aggregated national polls, 45.6 to 43.6 percent.

Romney probably has a 50-50 chance of being the 45th President of the United States. He'll distance himself from Donald Trump if he's smart. Just saying.

If the election were held today, for whom would you vote?

Adam Lambert has followed up an historic achievement with a brand new music video.

Adam Lambert, pre-Grammys

The former American Idol runner-up finished atop the Billboard 200 chart last week, becoming the first openly gay musician to ever accomplish that feat. So, what does a talented singer do for an encore?

He unveils the official video for "Never Close Our Eyes," giving fans a futuristic look at a depressing world with not nearly enough color or dancing. But have no fear, Lambert is here!

Watch him lead a revolution:

"The one thing that I was really excited about was maybe something sort of science fiction," says Adam of the shoot. "Something kind of New World Order, in the future. Something not of this reality. When we put that out there, a gentleman called Dori Oskowitz came back with an amazing treatment. This director is a really cool guy, totally on the same page as me."

Ray J continues to feel the affects of Whitney Houston's death. This time in the wallet, however, as opposed to the heart.

Indeed, the man who made Kim Kardashian famous has been sued by stylist Marc Littlejohn because he allegedly hired Ray J to wear his clothing for a Grammy-related event on February 10. The problem?

Kim Kardashian Sex Tape Co-Star

Those items were supposedly left in the hotel room where Houston died and, according to the lawsuit, have been missing since the day this singer passed away.

Littlejohn is therefore suing Ray J for the cost of the clothing ($2,880) and demanding either the cash amount or the duds themselves. He's had no luck so far in either case when reaching out to the artist or his mother.

UPDATE: What do you know?!? Ray J apparently found the items just after this lawsuit was filed. He has handed them over.

In a rare interview, Prince William gave ABC News the clearest sign yet that he and his wife Kate Middleton are planning to try for a baby soon.

In an interview to mark his grandmother’s diamond jubilee - 60 years on the throne - the future king said starting a family is a top priority.

Discussing his military plans, Prince William, who will himself turn 30 next month (Kate Middleton turned 30 this winter), told Katie Couric:

"More importantly, I’d rather like to have children. That’s the key thing really."

"But I’m just very keen to have a family and both Catherine and I, you know, are very much looking forward to having a family in the future."

When asked whether there was anything he would like to announce, the prince said coyly: "You won’t get anything out of me. Tight lipped."

Fortunately, Couric didn't overtly ask about the recent pregnancy rumors.

William and brother his Prince Harry opened up during an interview at Clarence House in London for The Jubilee Queen, ABC's special series on her.

Watch another portion of the special feature after the jump:

Following a hospitalization for abdominal surgery in North Carolina, Grammy-winning folk singer Doc Watson passed away yesterday, the Associated Press confirms. He was 89.

The singer/songwriter actually lost his eyesight as a child, but that didn't stop him from going on to record such hits as "Tom Dooley" and "Shady Grove."

Watson toured for decades, beginning in the 1960s and faced tragedy in 1985 when he son Eddy was killed in a tractor accident. He is now survived by daughter Nancy.

The popular artist won seven Grammys, as well as a lifetime achievement award in 2004. In 1997, he was given the National Medal of Arts from President Bill Clinton.

A letter Michael Jackson wrote to his former wife Lisa Marie Presley - in which he complains of chronic insomnia - was set to be sold at auctioned ... before until Lisa Marie found out, threw a fit and demanded it be taken off the block.

She didn't say why she wanted the letter pulled, but it's easy to guess.

Michael Jackson Letter to Lisa Marie Presley

Written sometime between 1993 and 1996, the letter from MJ reads: "Smell here [arrow with box] Lisa I truly need this rest I haven't slept litterally [sic] in 4 days now. I need to be away from phones and Business people."

"I must take care of my health first Im' [sic] crazy for you Love Turd."

Yes ... Love Turd.

Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009. Dr. Conrad Murray, who was injecting him with the hospital-grade anesthetic Propofol to help him sleep, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to four years behind bars.

Julien's Auction in Beverly Hills didn't elaborate on the incident beyond stating that Lisa's request was of "a personal nature" and "we wanted to honor the request."

We can read between the lines.

The America's Got Talent auditions continued to limp along Tuesday, with producers emphasizing that contestants had to go big or go home in St. Louis. It's unclear such an emphasis was placed in this city, but we seemed to have grabbed a very interesting cross-section of auditions from all over the United States.

I had my doubts when the first few auditions included the awful drummer/mom who played "I Will Survive" and lacked a band; a woman who crushes cans with her hands (instead of her boobs; a dancing chicken; and an awkward unicyclist/lassoer - but the auditions picked up. Too bad we didn't actually see many of them. On to a full recap!

America's Got Talent Panel

Inferno
Spencer Horseman - After having a really poor escape artist last night we not only get a good looking escape artist in Spencer but a very dynamic performance that involved the right amount of danger. The fact that he had to fall to a mat to prevent his death was amazing. I predict that he'll automatically make it through to the live rounds and not have to do anything in Vegas just to prevent his accidental death. Some of his websites claim that he's also a "comedian" so I wonder if we'll ever see them.

Medium
Isaac Brown - You know when little children get to get away with saying whatever they want? Isaac had personality and it made up for how pitchy he was. I would love if he had his sisters and parents as backup dancers. Someone better call up Nickelodeon or Disney, because this kid needs to be part of a development package.

Conservative columnist George Will slammed Donald Trump as a moronic blowhard this weekend, prompting a blistering, unintentionally hilarious response from the Celebrity Apprentice star, who has been campaigning with Mitt Romney.

The GOP presidential candidate has taken a lot of heat for appearing with Trump at a campaign fundraiser. Will criticized the move, as well as Trump personally.

“I do not understand the cost-benefit here,” Will said on ABC’s This Week. “The costs are clear. The benefit - what voter is going to vote for him because of Donald Trump?"

"The cost of appearing with a bloviating ignoramus is obvious, it seems to me."

Will-Trump

"Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics.”

Bloviating ignoramus ... wow. George Will FTW. Fortunately, Trump took the high road with his response ... just kidding. Did you really fall for that?

“George Will may be the dumbest (and most overrated) political commentator of all time,” he tweeted. “If the Republicans listen to him, they will lose.”

Oh, and it continues. He adds: “Losers such as George Will and Rosie O'Donnell use me to get publicity for themselves. They are strictly third rate.”

“George Will totally ‘bombed’ at The Mar-a-Lago Club. I was there to watch. He was embarrassed and no longer likes Donald Trump.”

Yes ... what you just witnessed is Trump insulting Will AND name-checking his own elite Palm Beach real estate property! The Donald FTW!

Will did speak at the Trump’s opulent Palm Beach club ... in 1995. He has yet to respond to the Mar-a-Lago crack ... and really, how do you recover from that?!

Andre Benjamin, also known as Andre 3000 of Outkast fame, is taking on the role of Jimi Hendrix in an upcoming movie, and man, was he well ... kast.

The 37-year-old hip hop star is currently in Ireland shooting All Is by My Side, in which he portrays the legendary, revolutionary guitarist (1942-1970).

The first photos of Andre 3000 in character show a striking resemblance:

  • Andre 3000 as Hendrix
  • Jimi Hendrix Photo

The film tells the story of Hendrix's time in England during 1966-1967, before he rose to fame in the U.S., and is scheduled to hit theaters next year.

Can you see Andre as Hendrix after this photo comparison? It's hard not to, although he'll have to work on his guitar skills and vocals as well as the hair.
