From Dancing with the Stars to Shanking with the Inmates?

Race car driver and former reality TV champion Helio Castroneves has been indicted on tax fraud.

Castroneves has been accused of siphoning millions of dollars in income to a Panamanian shell company from 1999 to 2004. Sounds complicated, and shady.

The Dancing with the Stars season five winner will appear in a Miami court today to face charges of conspiracy and tax evasion. If convicted of all charges, he faces a maximum penalty of 35 years in prison. Yikes!

With those looks and this dancing background, Helio may be in serious trouble during any prison shower. We're just sayin.

Don't worry, you haven't seen the last of Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough.

The Dancing with the Stars champions - and rumored lovers - will be taking their act on the road, joining the 37-city Dancing with the Stars national tour "for about a week's worth of dates," says Hough, who is vacationing in Hawaii.

The popular tour will also feature Marie Osmond, Sabrina Bryan, Wayne Newton, Drew Lachey, Joey Lawrence and Monique Coleman. It begins December 18 in Seattle.

"Helio saw that everybody wanted to do the tour and didn't want to be left out," said Hough. "I had a blast doing the last tour and if we could pop in there and do a few dates, that would be great."

Hough added it appears as though the pair will perform in Indianapolis (1/18), Nashville (1/19), and Greensboro, North Carolina (1/26).

Julianne Hough is aghast. She's appalled. She's simply shocked that anyone would consider her and fellow Dancing with the Stars champion Helio Castroneves to be a couple.

"Oh my gosh! No!" Hough told People magazine Thursday. "I love Helio like he is my brother. We are the best of friends."

We think we believe the 19-year old beauty, but she has to understand where the rumors are coming from: Immediately after the show's finale, Castroneves confirmed that he and his fiancée Aliette Vazquez had called off their engagement.

A friendly peck: Julianne Hough is adamant that she and Helio Castroneves are just friends. Really good looking friends.

Meanwhile, Hough dealt with a similar situation last May when she called off her engagement to Zach Wilson. At that time, the buzz was that she and partner Apolo Anton Ohno were an item.

Jennie Garth, though, appears to be the voice of reason, stating that Julianne has been at the center of these controversies because she's had undeniable chemistry with both of her Dancing with the Stars partners. But as the actress put it:

"When Julianne Hough dances she can have chemistry with a broomstick."

This just in, folks: Julianna Hough is dating a broomstick!

Next week, the dancer resumes recording songs for her upcoming CD, set to be released in early 2008. By then, she'll probably be linked to Tony Romo.

Winning a pair of Indy 500 races didn't go to the head of Helio Castroneves.

But his ex-fiancee, Aliette Vazquez, claims that the success this race car driver enjoyed on Dancing with the Stars drove his ego out of control.

Sources close to the couple told TMZ that the reason the couple split was simple: Helio went Hollywood! Reportedly, Castroneves' newfound "fame" was too much for his girlfriend of six years. As his popularity grew, so did the man's ego...

Dancing with the Stars champ Helio Castroneves dreams of Hollywood.

As a result, Aliette Vazquez hit the road, but is supposedly "over him," according to the insider. She was even spotted selling her jewelry line yesterday at the Biltmore Hotel in Miami. Take that, Julianne Hough!

Helio Castroneves was on top of the world after winning Dancing with the Stars last night.

But the race car driver awoke this morning with the knowledge that he'll never have Aliette Vazquez on top of him again.

TMZ reports that Vazquez has broken off her engagement to the racing and dancing champion; the couple had been dating for more than six years and had been engaged for a year.

"There have been a lot of rumors and a lot of misinformation out there," Vazquez's rep Howard Bragman said, and she "wanted to set the record straight."

"I can confirm that Aliette Vazquez and I have called off our engagement and are no longer together," Castroneves said in a statement to People. "At this time I would prefer to keep my private life private."

Ironically, Helio's partner, Julianne Hough, postponed her wedding last year because she was too busy preparing for the new season of Dancing with the Stars.

After Marie Osmond was rightfully eliminated first on the Dancing with the Stars results show last night, it came down to the two celebrities who have been favored all season long.

And while many felt as though Melanie Brown was the best pure dancer (probably because she does that for a living!), race car driver Helio Castroneves took the checkered flag in the end.

"It feels totally different from winning a race," Castroneves said after the show, as he celebrated with partner Julianne Hough. "I wasn't kidding. This goes right between my two Indy trophies. Otherwise, it would have been a big blank space."

Congratulations to Helio Castroneves and Julianne Hough for winning this season's Dancing with the Stars.

Other highlights on the show last night included a return by Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas, as well as a shirtless Cameron Mathison. Yum.
