Is Season Seven of Dancing with the Stars plagued by some kind of curse?

According to new reports, the amazing Julianne Hough will announce tomorrow that the ailment that landed her to the emergency room last week was more than a stomach ache, as was initially stated - it's an ovarian cyst.

The blonde stunner is going to have surgery to remove the cyst and she will have her appendix taken out at the same time (for reasons unrelated to the cyst).

No word on when the surgery will take place or if Julianne Hough will return to Dancing with the Stars - the cast members of which are dropping like flies.

HOUGH ENOUGH: Already one of the world's best dancers, the 20-year-old Utah native has already won two DWTS titles and is seeking a third with Cody Linley (above).

Here's wishing her a speedy recovery, in any case. We heart you, Jules!

Dancing With the Stars' Cheryl Burke is a fine-looking woman.

She's also an athletic woman - making her living as a dancer. So you can imagine her reaction to recent critics who claim she's gotten fat.

"I was like, maybe I should just starve myself for four weeks just so people would shut up," she said on Friday's Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"But at the end of the day ... I'm an athlete. I like to eat, I like to work out, and I like to feel healthy, and I feel healthy."


Cheryl Burke is hot. But Earlier this week, Dancing with the Stars Season Six contestant Louis Van Amstel - and dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy - both spoke out, negatively, about her weight gain as well as that of newcomer Lacey Schwimmer.

"Criticizing a woman's weight ... is just a wrong statement to make ... for women, and it's dangerous," Cheryl Burke said.

"You don't have to be a size zero to be beautiful," she added. "In the world that I live in right now, you don't have to be skin and bones. You can be healthy and beautiful, and you need to accept that about yourself and feel secure about it."

When Burke admitted that she is a "size four in a dress," DeGeneres praised her: "That is a normal body and that's what most people - if they're lucky - look like. I think most people would probably trade you for that body."

Both Cheryl Burke and Lacey Schwimmer are still alive on this season of Dancing with the Stars.

Still, former co-star and professional dancer Louis van Amstel says the two women are too fat for the competition. Seriously!

"If you want to gain weight, it's your prerogative," van Amstel says in the newest issue of TV Guide. "[People] look at this show to be inspired and think, 'If I just work hard enough, I can look like that...' If they watch someone who's dancing her butt off and she's still heavy, they can be discouraged. You have to take responsibility."

Wow. How do you really feel, Louis?

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is equally critical of Burke and Schwimmer.

"When I first saw these women this season, I said, 'Guys, you know the camera adds 10 pounds,'" he said. "'You have to do something about this."

Toni Braxton and Alec Mazo were eliminated last night on Dancing with the Stars. But that wasn't the biggest news of the evening.

Less than an hour after the results episode aired, Julianne Hough was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

The beauty "was experiencing slight stomach pains all day that increased and the doctors thought it was best to have them checked out," said her representative, Cindy Guagenti.

In Costume

Hough - seen above in costume, during her Jitterbug with partner Cody Linley Monday night - showed no signs of pain during the broadcast; her and Linley performed an encore of the routine above, which earned them 28 points the previous evening.

We wish Julianne a speedy recovery. If she needs her stomach, or any other body part, rubbed, she has our number.

It was time to Tango on Dancing with the Stars last night for our favorite couple, Cody Linley and Julianne Hough.

As usual, the performance landed this duo in the middle of the pack; they earned a combined score from the judges of 23.

Karina Smirnoff and JR Martinez

Cody and Julianne will need to step it up if they wish to compete with this season's favorites, Brooke Burke and Derek Hough.

Watch Linley and Hough's version of the Tango now and judge it for yourself:

We doubt Brooke Burke and Derek Hough actually encourage smoking. It's been proven to cause cancer.

But the front-runners on this season of Dancing with the Stars this season performed such a sexy Samba that they caused judge Bruno Tonioli to exclaim:

“This was raunchy with a capital Rrrr. I need a smoke!”

Lance Bass and Lacey Schimmer were equally impressive, however, as each wore eyeliner during a bold version of the Tango. Here's a full look at last night's scores:

  • Maurice Green & Cheryl Burke (Samba): 20
  • Cody Linley & Julianne Hough (Tango): 23 
  • Toni Braxton & Alec Mazo (Samba): 22
  • Cloris Leachman & Corky Ballas (Tango): 22
  • Rocco DiSpirito & Karina Smirnoff (Samba): 18
  • Susan Lucci & Tony Dovolani (Tango): 24
  • Brooke Burke & Derek hough (Samba): 26
  • Lance Bass & Lacey Schwimmer (Tango): 26
  • Warren Sapp & Kym Johnson (Samba): 22

With celebrity gossip favorite Kim Kardashian eliminated from Dancing with the Stars, we turn our full attention to Cody Linley and Julianne Hough.

And it looks like this duo needs it!

Rob and Cheryl

Come on, you two, step it up! Last night's Jive garnered just 21 total points from the judges, tied for second worst on the show. We hope Cody and Julianne don't think they can glide by on looks alone.

Watch the routine for yourself and let us know if you think this tandem was graded fairly:

Kim Kardashian isn't exactly thrilled that Misty May-Treanor was forced to withdraw from Dancing with the Stars due to injury - "I wouldn't wish that upon anyone," Kim told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this morning - but now that a spot has opened up on the show, Kardashian isn't about to ignore the opportunity, either.

"I would totally go back, if they ask me," Kim said. "I texted my partner Mark [Ballas] last night and said, 'Are you ready to back? Are we going back?'"

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

We hate to break it to Kim Kardashian and her fans, but there's no way the show can bring back a couple that's been kicked off. America has spoken.

Our guess is that no tandem will be eliminated on tonight's results show. Yes, folks, it looks like Cloris Leachman will be safe for at least another week.

Perfection has its price.

For the third consecutive week, Broke Burke and Derek Hough received the highest marks from the judges last night, including the season's first perfect 10 (from Len Goodman). But the couple also fought viciously during training, with Hough saying Burke had a "lazy mind" and Burke, in turn, storming out of the studio.

It certainly made for a night of drama on Dancing with the Stars. Here were the overall scores and routines from the 10 remaining couples:

  • Susan Lucci & Tony Dovolani (Jive): 21 
  • Lance Bass & Lacey Schwimmer (Viennese waltz): 22 
  • Maurice Greene & Cheryl Burke (Jive): 24 
  • Warren Sapp & Kym Johnson (Viennese waltz): 25 
  • Toni Braxton & Alec Mazo (Viennese waltz): 22 
  • Cody Linley & Julianne Hough (Jive): 21 
  • Rocco DiSpirito & Karina Smirnoff (Viennese waltz): 20 
  • Cloris Leachman & Corky Ballas (Jive): 16 
  • Brooke Burke & Derek Hough (Viennese waltz): 28

On the primetime dance floor, at least, Derek Hough and Brooke Burke have been all smiles.

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

Cristian de la Fuente [following his injury, trip to the hospital and subsequent stellar performance]

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.
