Dancing With the Stars Gossip: Poor Jennifer Grey Effort Blamed on Derek Hough Eyeliner Mishap

by at . Comments

This one's straight out of the Lindsay Lohan Book of Bad Excuses.

On last night's Dancing With the Stars, Brandy rose to the top. That wasn't too big a surprise, but Jennifer Grey finishing fifth out of seven dancers was.

According to her partner, Derek Hough, blame it on the "guyliner."

Derek Hough blames the makeup department, not Jennifer Grey.

"This is what happened tonight," Derek said. "The dance was going well, I told [Jennifer] to get fierce, and she was all in it. And then at the end, this eyeliner got in my eye! Then I flew off and she was off balance and it was a mess."

"So basically, the moral of the story is don't wear eyeliner if you're a guy."

Hmm. You know, it doesn't seem to bother Adam Lambert ...

Anyway, also throwing a wrench into Derek's excuse? Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas also rocked the eyeliner look, and did much better than last week.

"She did really well with this one. Out of all the dances, this was the most natural for her," said Mark, "I'm definitely more confident with the tango."

Rick Fox was channeling his inner Taylor Momsen, too.

"It's obviously left a statement," he said. "It's never been on someone this tall before, right? But I was not alone in the guyliner department tonight."

Will any of the above couples pay the price tonight? Unlikely. Kurt Warner and Anna Trebunskaya are our pick to head home, but what do we know?

Who are you rooting for on Dancing With the Stars?
