We’re inching closer to the 10 contetants that will be performing with the So You Think You Can Dance All-Stars, as two more got the boot tonight. Let’s jump right in...

Farewell, Chris Koehl and Ashley Rich

Group Dance - Bollywood (Nakul Dev Mahajan): There were only six guys in the opening and I assumed that Chris was the one missing because of how awful he was in the guys' group dance. The seven girls came in the center and none of them really stood out; the after-effect of only having jazz/contemporary women. The dance was colorful, but some of the camera movements were disjointed. My favorite aspects were watching the women's skirts spinning and the circle choreography.

Eliminations - First, some happy news. Melanie and Marko were safe after having a dynamic jazz routine. Caitlynn and Mitchell were also safe because they had the last performance spot. Making Mary Murphy cry was good.

This week on The Real Housewives of New York City, Sonja Morgan throws a Burlesque party and costumes are required as long as they show some skin.

As always, THG recaps all the craziness in our +/- review!

The Housewives have some serious mother / daughter bonding time with mixed results. Ramona takes Avery shopping ... for a burlesque outfit? What exactly is she teaching her 16-year-old? Where to buy her bustiers and S & M gear? Minus 5.

But I must admit, Avery always seems to have more sense than her mother. She turns down an invite to the party and she earns a Plus 7 for telling Ramona that she'd look like a chicken in that feathered outfit. 

Burlesque Action

Why does Ramona find it hard to believe that Avery wants her parents home? Yes, the teenager might be holed up in her room but she's still a kid. She craves stability and comfort, knowing her parents are home, not out gallivanting every night. 

Jill Zarin visits Allie at school where she hears about the girl's curriculum which includes Latin film and sex theory classes. Then she tells Jill she wants to be a sex columnist. Plus 5 to Jill for not reacting too badly. I think Allie's really trying to press her buttons. She should really give her a break. She is buying her $150 jeans.

Jill gets a Plus 10 for calling Allie out on her pseudo vegetarianism. I don't care if you eat chicken but you are not a vegetarian, no matter how cool it is to use the term.

Toddlers & Tiaras is the most despicable show on reality television. And, yes, we know: that's saying a lot!

But many believes the TLC series sunk to a new low this week when it featured eight-year old Brock Ritter as a beauty pageant contestant. He's a boy.

The self-described "diva" hails from Michigan and has a mom, Tori, who says she's simply trying to "nurture" her child.

"I support what his ideas are and what he wants to do because people say you have to open your kids up to opportunities and let them try different things," Tori told TV Guide. "We've both played soccer. We've kicked the ball around with him in the back yard and he has no interest in doing that.

Joining fellow fashionista Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie is set to offer up some of her design expertise as a celebrity mentor on NBC's Fashion Star.

Nicole has her own clothing line, Winter Kate (her daughter Harlow's two middle names), so she certainly brings experience to the program.

Jessica Pregnancy Non-Confirmation!

Elle MacPherson will handle hosting duties on Fashion Star.

Fashion Star is slated to debut later this year.

"Jessica, Nicole, John and Elle make the most exciting team we have ever worked with on a reality TV show and we are thrilled to feature such an extraordinary group of mentors and designers," executive producer Ben Silverman said.

Although she helms a fashion empire of sorts, mom of two Richie says her own personal style is much less thought out than you'd think.

Filling in the final 17 spots proved to difficult for the America's Got Talent judges last night.

It didn't help no female singers remaining were talented enough, while the only solo contemporary woman looked like Justin Bieber. Let's jump right into the Las Vegas auditions...

A Sexy Act

Magicians - I'm surprised Fig and Newton was considered top tier when Landon was much better. The 80s magician act was clumsy but funny. The Halls of Magic's snake charmer routine was good except for the bag attached to the snake. Landon auditioned with the folding silhouette, but did a slow paced levitating box this time.

I liked the calm nature of the routine and how he managed to lift a box with a woman in it. Seth Gabriel was the final act and when the poor cube went down; I worried. Then he did the most blatant WTF door passing by and you knew he walked away from the transition. Afterwards, Seth proceeded to question the girls about the cube mishap. I hope the blonde wasn't fired. Advanced: Landon Swank and Seth Grabel.

The Top 14 danced their hearts out last night, replete with a brand new set of choreographers.

On the judging panel along with Mary Murphy and Nigel Lythgoe were Carmen Electra and Travis Wall, as So You Think You Can Dance continued the adding a choreographer to mix because celebs are useless. With Wall sounding like Ross Matthews when excited, let's grade all the acts that came before us, shall we?

Caitlynn Lawson and Mitchell Kelly

Guy's Group Dance - Contemporary (Justin Giles): The dance was supposed to be seven stages of grief. I liked each of the dancers’ solo time while the rest were continuing their movements. Sadly, Chris was having a lot of trouble with timing, possibly because of his hoodie over his head. The performance felt short because of the solos and Jess definitely had two dance motions: "consider dropping bag" and "drop bag."

Melanie & Marko - Jazz (Ray Leeper): Of all the random information we got from these contestants, Marko admitted to doing drag once. The story involved a feuding Latin family (aka West Side Story/Romeo & Juliet), but in reality this dance didn't have a storyline. I loved how the couple had to start in a pose and Melanie maintained her arabesque well before the song began. I also liked the sharpness of the movements and it proved that having new choreographers improves the quality level of the dancers. The walk the couple performed had power despite its simplicity. My Grade: A.

THG makes its reality show debut tonight.

On the latest episode of The World According to Paris, the star and her friend are surfing the Internet when they come across a January article that asks whether or not Hilton is getting into porn.

We based that guess on a sighting of Paris outside of Digital Playground, one of the world's biggest adult film companies. Sadly, we got it wrong.

But, fortunately, Paris doesn't appear to blame our staff for the error. She instead directs her annoyance at her new assistant. Take a look at our role on the show in this clip:

Nick Cannon welcomed us to Las Vegas last night, where the 100 acts nervously awaited their fate.

Overall, 10 advanced directly to Hollywood: The Silhouettes, Lys Agnes, Professor Splash, The Rhinestone Ropers, The Fearless Flores Family (now with Mom in costume!), Melissa Villasenor, The Captain & Maybelle, Team iLuminate, Miami All-Stars, and Squawk Opera.

The rest? Time to battle for the judges' hearts and minds...

AGT Judges in Vegas

Danger Category: Charles Pecha decided to set his bottom half on fire, which was better than his one-man iLuminate juggling act. I liked the multiple uses of fire: twirling fire, juggling fireballs, and then proceeding to light him on fire.

Kevin Shelly, the underestimated board breaker, moved from wood to concrete, standing on katanas with blocks on his back. Unfortunately, the blocks didn't break, but it may have been more about the assistant not having enough swing. Frank Myers did an easy mind trick with Russian roulette in play. The performance was compelling, with a nice fake out at the end. Advanced: Frank Myers, Yellow Design Stunt Team, and Charles Pecha.

We're down to 14 on So You Think You Can Dance. Let's review how we arrived at that number last night...

Group Dance - Broadway (Michael Rooney): The geek in me loved that the tune was from The Incredibles. The choreography looked a bit chaotic because of how many dancers there were; several weren’t synchronized. This was the most obvious with the flips and the leaps, but even one arm in the wrong place sticks out. I did like the group assist slow turn at the end; we’ll probably see a dance crew try that in the future.

Caitlynn Lawson and Ricky Jaime

Eliminations - The first three couples were up, with Melanie/Marko safe, kisses and all. Ashley/Chris were in the bottom mostly because their piece had a disconnect with the audience. It wasn't anything about their technique because they were spot on. Finally, Ryan/Ricky were safe, thus proving that dances from the heart are successful.

I hate to sound like Kelly, but Simon is so weird. He's always creeped me out and this installment of The Real Housewives of New York City was no exception. So let's recap everyone's quirks in our patented +/- review, shall we?

Cindy throws a party to launch her new wax and body bejeweling kits. Everyone gets into the act, but PLUS 10 for Brad going all out with a bejeweled tramp stamp. No, we haven't gotten to the weird part yet.

Simon in Trouble

That takes place when Simon finds Jill. First, he sits down so close he's practically feeling her up. MINUS 5 for already making me uncomfortable. Then he starts the conversation by saying, "You and Alex have burned."

Excuse me? As Jill is just as confused as the rest of us, he explains that he's referring to Jill and Alex sharing the fire pit. Finally, he goes into his request for lunch because "we need to talk."
