Mom's Still Standing: Stephen Craig said his mother, Marie Osmond, is okay. "She sometimes forgets to breathe when she's doing something," Craig said after the show."

Dwindling Assets: He may be worth a few billion, but what Mark Cuban is most proud of is his losses: 34 pounds since late August. "My stomach!" marveled Cuban. "I've got abs now. Somebody came up to me and brushed up against my stomach and said, ‘Wow! What happened to you?' Forget Maksim Chmerkovskiy! He's almost 25 years younger than me. I'm 49-years-old and I feel great."

9021-Oh-My!: Jennie Garth shook "her fun stuff," Derek Hough told People. "I was in absolute awe tonight when she walked in with her dress on and all made up. I was like, ‘Wow, you look amazing.'"

And despite the shorter rehearsal time the couple had this week - one of Garth's kids "had to go to the emergency room. [Her daughter] fell and hit a table. It was pretty traumatic for Jennie this week," says Hough - their samba earned an admirable 25 points.
