Behind the Scenes of Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

The 10th season of Dancing with the Stars is officially underway, and while we already ran down Monday's results, here are some things you might have missed:

Dedicated to dad: Shannen Doherty signed on to do the show for her father, Tom, who suffered a stroke in December, and wept after her debut Viennese waltz.

“I couldn’t keep it together,” the original Beverly Hills: 90210 star said. “I always said I’d never be that girl that cried on camera, but I did. Oh well, it’s my Daddy.”

Brooke brings it. Brooke Burke's co-hosting debut was a success, for one reason “Having a partner like Tom [Bergeron] who’s impeccable helps,” Burke said.

Just wing it: As for another one of Monday evening's surprise success stories, Pamela Anderson claims she “has never rehearsed for anything a day in her life.”

Her sexy bed head-inspired cha cha was surely worth the hours she and her partner, newcomer Damian Whitewood, logged in the studio the past three weeks.

“It was a lot of training,” says Anderson. “We want to do something different every time. It’s not always going to be sex, drugs, rock and roll, ripping off clothes.”

No? Shame.

Pamela Anderson was inspired by Pamela Anderson last night.

Star struck. Cheryl Burke sure was. Rehearsing with Chad Ochocinco in Miami, he lives “was like being with the President,” she joked. “He’s the king of Miami."

"People stopped their cars to say hello. He has a great life," she says, though he has to work on "his McDonald’s-heavy diet ... no idea how he has a 12-pack."

The girls of Jake Pavelka. The Bachelor may be over, but he's still got women following him everywhere. Jake's fiancee, Vienna Girardi was front and center.

Joining Vienna were the other ladies in Pavelka’s life - his mother, Sally, former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, and even The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris.

All the women were rooting for pilot, who turned in a respectable waltz with Chelsie Hightower. Performing in front of the live audience “was awesome,” he said.

Who are you rooting for on Dancing with the Stars?


Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.

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.
