'Dancing With the Stars: Live in Las Vegas' recap: Come for the heavage, stay for Carson Kressley

Or if you’re already Carson Kressley: Come for the heavage, stay for the mandatory nipple-hardness exam. Welcome, DANCMSTRs one and all, to Dancing With the Stars: Live in Las Vegas! (You still have until August 5 to see it.) This sizzling hunk of well-done tenderloin — offset beautifully, I might add, by shimmery, rare beef medallion Kressley — is Vegas troupe member Ryan Di Lello. You may know him from So You Think You Can Dance or some of your better dreams. I now know him as “Shoulders.” READ FULL STORY

U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials: Things Learned on Night 4 (other than Bob Costas makes it better)

Did everyone get as excited as I did seeing Bob Costas show up for the fourth night of the swimming trials? It wasn’t so much that I needed to see him interview Ryan Lochte, a conversation that started slow but had a strong finish. It was that it made me excited for the opening ceremony in London, which I assume he’ll once again call with Matt Lauer. I look forward to the trivia they’ll drop: In 2008, I learned that at the 1936 games, Haiti and Liechtenstein realized they had the same flag, and in 2010, I learned that in 1964, a group of Mongolian cross-country skiers showed up unexpectedly at the Innsbruck Olympics but were allowed to compete anyway. Fill, gentlemen! Fill!

In the meantime, here are a few things I picked up during Night 4 (not from Bob, unless noted): READ FULL STORY

U.S. Olympic trials: All male swimmers look like Alexander Skarsgard until the caps come off

Just a theory I’ve been floating. Such chiseled faces!

NBC was back with another hour-long prime-time telecast of U.S. Olympic swimming trials Tuesday night. Brendan Hansen (right) and Eric Shanteau finished 1-2 to qualify for the 100m breaststroke as Hansen’s longtime nemesis and Shanteau’s Japanese training buddy Kosuke Kitajima — portrayed as quite the evil troll by commentators Dan Hicks and Rowdy Gaines — lurked in the shadowy stands above the pool. He even clapped when the race was over. That imp! READ FULL STORY

What is your damage, Adam Sackler from 'Girls'?

Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies. Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!

What is your damage, typically shirtless man-child Adam Sackler? You look like an “If They Mated” result between a Prometheus creature and Gilligan. You were presented as an enormous doucheboat (that you built all by yourself, gettin’ by with a little help from grandma’s $800 a month) on the premiere of Girls. Then in the last four episodes you became more complex — romantic, even — and I could tell I was supposed to warm up to you. You told Hannah you loved her, posted hundreds of “SORRY” fliers along a building, and carried a mattress and a chair down the stairs for Marnie. You were the best worst boyfriend in Brooklyn.

But you snapped right back to your old self at the end of the season 1 finale, so I’ve decided I have had it with your evil ways! (Until season 2, of course, when I’m sure I will love to hate you even more.)


'Dancing With the Stars': Tristan MacManus on dancing with Karina and Team (Paso) Shirtless

Ballroom dancing pro and amateur leprechaun Tristan MacManus will keep checking in with EW.com even after he and partner Gladys Knight were eliminated in their quest for the coveted mirrorball trophy.

On Monday’s rumba with Karina: Gladys sent me a message as soon as we’d done the number tonight with Jackie Evancho. In her own sweet and kind of genuine way, she said she was delighted to see me get to “dance with somebody.” I said I danced with you all those weeks! She said no really, to get to see you dance full-out with people….she liked it.

I’d been wanting to dance with Karina [embedded below] — I’ve never danced with her before so I was delighted. Hopefully I’ll get to dance with her again, at some stage. I’m lucky to dance with any of the girls on this show, they’re all such great dancers. But yeah, I was looking forward to dancing with Karina. We have fun, we get on with each other. We came up with this dance Saturday for about an hour or two, then we had blocking today. So a pretty short, quick one. But it was good, I got to choreograph another number out of it so that’s pretty cool.

Is the smoke machine annoying? I don’t know, I guess it looks all right. Makes the floor very slippy. The fog has to fall somewhere, know what I mean? I guess that was something they decided to use last minute. So it was what it was. They’re always trying to do different things, try and make it look as good as possible. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Hidden Gems of Week 3!

Studies have shown that Hidden Gems of the Week, EW.com’s collection of reader-submitted ridiculata, is the best way to enjoy Dancing With the Stars without ever having to turn it on. It’s a visual feast of sparkles, fringe, and stunning awkwardness. Ready to go down the rabbit hole? Behold this bountiful smattering of Visible Gems!


“Jack’s costume looks like the Heat Meiser from The Year Without a Santa Claus” –Fridgedancer, endorsed by SpeechTeacher89, Bvonly, DWTS Prodigal, Kevin M. Kawa
“Jack’s shirt shows the gradual progression of skin-tone over the course of the show: starting out normal, and slowly increasing to a bright orange hue.” –kellen
“Jack’s shirt reminded me of one of my favorite drinks in college — the Singapore Sling.” –MLM  READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Week 3 is liiiiiiiiiiiiive!

Update: Annie’s recap is live.

Welcome to the third liiiiiiiiiiiiiive performance show of season 14!

Cheryl Burke and spicy filet of man William Levy (pictured) have promised a sexy salsa, so we’re about to get the answer to one of my most burning questions of the month: Will the ballroom’s reaction to William Levy removing his shirt be like something out of a doomsday movie? READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars' to feature sneak peek of Disney doomsday film starring William Levy. Plus: Annie predicts season 14 finalists in EW's podcast

Okay, that’s not “true.” I just wanted to sneak in an April Fool’s Day headline while I still had the chance. Happy holidays to all.

But hear me out: This could happen. The Dancing With the Stars crowd’s reaction to sizzling filet of man William Levy — a Cuban-American telenovela actor and model — is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Brookebot and T-Berj can barely introduce him and his professional partner Cheryl Burke over the SOUL-DEADENING SCREAMS transmitted from three floors of fans. It’s like these visitors to Planet Mirrorballus have never seen a hot person before, and certainly not one from Cuba.

So far William Levy has worn a sleeveless shirt (to insane applause, for week 1’s cha cha — pictured) and a full-coverage black tie affair (to blood-curdling screams seemingly out of a horror movie, for week 2’s quickstep). I ask you, DANCMSTRs and fellow logicians: What is going to happen when William Levy wears no shirt at all? Will people drop dead from proximity to sexiness and the sight of his bare flesh? Will they screech until their heads explode? Now more than ever, I am frightened for our future. READ FULL STORY

Nick Offerman sans mustache: I'm in

Yes, Nick Offerman is hilarious as Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation. And it stands to reason that the man married to the incomparable Megan Mullally would be the cat’s meow. (He watches The Bachelor, y’all!)

But I have to say that what put me over the moon for Offerman was his appearance on the Kathie Lee and Hoda hour of the Today show this morning.  He and his Casa de mi Padre costar Will Ferrell showed up wearing bath robes and sipping drinks to promote their Spanish language movie. But the most striking thing about the interview for me was that it was the first time I saw Offerman without his trademark Ron Swanson mustache. And I have to say that it was… delightful.
