One point.

Just one measly point.

That's all that separated Cheryl Burke and Gilles Marini from their second consecutive perfect score on last night's Dancing with the Stars.

Despite being told by Carrie Ann Inaba that their Paso Doble "almost brought tears" to her eyes, and despite Bruno Tonioli's raves that it "was more than a dance, [it] was a battle for supremacy," the couple was denied another 30 because Len Goodman referred to the routine as "hectic."

No matter. Burke and Marini still sit atop this week's leaderboard. Here's a look at last night's scores:

  • Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke: 29
  • Lil' Kim and Derek Hough: 26
  • Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas: 26
  • Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: 25
  • Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough: 23
  • David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson: 22
  • Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower: 21
  • Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska: 20
  • Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer: 18

Kim Kardashian krashed and burned during her time on Dancing with the Stars.

But the large-breasted reality TV star is still a fan of the show, often stopping by to hang out with its current cast of contestants.

Kim visited the set earlier this week, writing on her official blog that "Melissa and Tony were so beautiful together but so much fun to watch and Cheryl and Gilles - I really couldn't tell the difference between who was the professional. They are so hot together!"

Kardashian added that she simply had to grab the booty of Lil Kim after the show. Looks like the rapper returned the favor...

Steve Wozniak was also sent home this week, but we're guessing readers care more about the Playboy model than the Apple computer founder.

Having come aboard Dancing with the Stars as a last-minute replacement for Jewel, and having suffered a few injuries herself, Holly Madison was eliminated from the competition last night.

Citing the costumes as her favorite part of the show, Madison said the following after her ousting:

"It was a lot physically harder than I thought it was going to be, but it was so much fun and I'm so glad l got a chance to do it."

Holly's Last Dance

Dmitry Chaplin and Holly Madison brought the hotness, but not the talent, to season eight of Dancing with the Stars.

Don't ever let anyone tell you Playboy Bunnies aren't tough.

Despite pain that caused her to interrupt tango rehearsals yesterday in order to visit the doctor, Holly Madison will compete Monday night on Dancing with the Stars.

"While she is not suffering from a broken rib, she does continue to feel a great deal of discomfort and was prescribed pain medication," Madison's rep told Us Weekly. "She is committed to the show and her partner, Dmitry and will rest when she can. She fully hopes and, at this time, expects to dance on Monday."

On her reality show, Denise Richards attempts to claim that her life is complicated.

But the outcome for this terrible actress and exploitive mother was very simple on Dancing with the Stars: she and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were eliminated last night.

The pair got the boot after performing a samba dance-off against fellow contestants Holly Madison and Dmitry Chaplin.

Booted Dancers

“I had fun! When else am I going to get to dress up like this, work with someone like Maks and be able to do a family show that my daughters can watch together,” Richards said after the results were announced.

Naturally, she couldn't do an interview without mentioning daughters Lola and Sam.

“They love watching us. We TiVo the show and we watch it together, but every time I have to go to rehearsal they go ‘too much dancing.’ It’s hard to find balance. I think they will be relieved it’s over."

For sure. It leaves more time for the family to "accidentally" be photographed all around town.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has said it's "very unfair" that she's on the show.

Holly Madison has labeled her the "biggest competition."

Still, in the face of such obstacles, Melissa Rycroft is doing more than just persevering on Dancing with the Stars; she's dominating! The former Bachelor contestant earned 27 points for her Foxtrot last night.

Foxtrotters

"Everyone's main goal is to have fun, have a good time, make friends - and if there is a competition, it's a friendly competition," Rycroft told Us Weekly yesterday, regarding comments such as the pair cited above. "There's nobody slashing other people's costumes backstage!"

That's a relief.

As for her post-Dancing plans, Rycroft says she'll return to Texas.

"I'm going back to Dallas. I don't know what I'll do, but I'm going home, for sure!"

Does Melissa Rycroft have an unfair advantage this season on Dancing with the Stars?

Not according to fellow competitor Holly Madison.

The Playboy Bunny - who is teamed with new professional Dmitry Chaplin - doesn't care that the former Bachelor suitor is an automatic fan favorite. But Madison does see Rycroft as her main competition.

"I think the biggest competition is Melissa from The Bachelor," Holly told Us Weekly over the weekend. "She is an amazing dancer and everybody loves her, including me... She is super sweet and an amazing dancer."

Lamest. Trash. Talk. Ever.

While Madison was the number-one girlfriend of Hugh Hefner for years, she said that achieving the same status on Dancing with the Stars isn't necessarily a goal.

"I just want to make it to third or second [place]," she said. "I want to do as many dances as I can and wear as many awesome costumes as I can. I'm having so much fun with it. I want to stick with it as long as possible."

You tell us: Who will advance farther on Dancing with the Stars?

I am not the best dancer, and I have not been the best dancer from the beginning. I am happy we made it this far.
