  • Lance Bass: Former boy bander
  • Toni Braxton: Singer

Thanks to Ray J, we know how Kim Kardashian moves in bed.

But might reality TV fans have a chance to see her moves on a dance floor this fall?

According to The New York Daily News, Kardashian has signed up for the next season of Dancing with the Stars. Helio Castroneves, the racecar driver that won this competition two years ago, was overheard at last week's ESPY Awards confirming that Kim was in.

Do you think Kim Kardashian would make a solid Dancing with the Stars contestant?

Hillary Clinton will not be the next President of the United States.

But in fulfilling her season-long promise as Dancing with the Stars favorite - and declaring before last night's results were announced that " I want to defy the odds... We need some girl power out there." - Kristi Yamaguchi became the second female to ever win this competition.

Season-one champion and General Hospital star Kelly Monaco must be proud.

Kristi Wins!

Also similar to Clinton's fantasies of defeating John McCain and Barack Obama, Yamaguchi overcome a pair of men last night. She earned more votes than runner-up Jason Taylor and third-place finisher Cristian de la Fuente.

Congrats, Kristi!

A week ago, Cristian de la Fuente  was in the hospital. Now, he and partner Cheryl Burke are in first place on Dancing with the Stars.

Following a combined score of 57 (out of a possible 60) for their tango and mambo, this pair took over the overall points lead on season six of the show. de la Fuente summed up his effort with a simple: "No pain, no mirror-ball trophy."

As for the other performances...

  • Kristi Yamaguchi and Mark Ballas: 55/60 (quickstep and samba)
  • Mario and Karina Smirnoff: 53/60 (Viennese waltz and jive)
  • Marissa Jaret Winokur and Tony Dovolani: 50/50 (foxtrot and mambo)
  • Jason Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska: 52/60 (tango and samba)

For a change, the lead story following an evening of Dancing with the Stars was not the impressive routine of Kristi Yamaguchi.

Instead, Chilean soap opera star Cristian de la Fuente stole the show... or at least got injured on the show. He was sent to the hospital after suffering a severe muscle cramp in his arm during a Samba routine.

"It hurts," de la Fuente told cohost Samantha Harris backstage, holding an ice pack to his left forearm. "It hurts the arm and it hurts that I couldn't do it, you know, it's tough."

Cheryl Burke, Cristián de la Fuente

Partner Cheryl Burke could tell there was a problem:

"When we were dancing I fell back into his arms and I heard something crack. I am so worried. He is not a wuss. He tried to finish the dance," she said.

The judges gave the couple straight 7's (for a total of 21 out of a possible 30 points) for their performance, while the general consensus was actually that NFL star Jason Taylor put on the best routine of the evening, Quickstepping his way to a 29.

A disappointing mambo sent Marlee Matlin and partner Fabian Sanchez packing this week on Dancing with the Stars. But the results couldn't shake the enthusiasm from the Oscar-winning actress!

"I'll keep dancing forever. Wherever the music is, I'm dancing!" she said through a sign language interpreter.

Marlee Says Goodbye

Sanchez, meanwhile, was just sad that he had to bid farewell to a new friend. But he assured fans he and Matlin would remain BFF along the lines of Miley Cyrus and Mandy Jiroux (minus the homemade videos, we presume).

"We would go to get lunch together, goof around and play jokes on each other," Fabian said. "I'll always remember every single day. And I just hope that were going to continue to be friends forever."

And you thought the inevitable David Cook vs. David Archuleta showdown on American Idol would remove all drama from that show.

Marlee Matlin and Fabian Sanchez: 21
Jason Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska: 24
