He’s probably best known for his roles as Gale Sayers in “Brian’s Song,” Louis McKay in “Lady Sings the Blues” and Lando Calrissian in the “Star Wars” movies, but soap fans will recall that in 2008, Billy Dee Williams joined “General Hospital: Night Shift” as Toussaint DuBois and crossed over to “General Hospital” in 2009. Now, Williams is lightening things up a bit by guest starring on the NBC comedy “Modern Family.”
Per Entertainment Weekly, the iconic actor will appear as himself during the episode titled “New Year’s Eve.” He will encounter Ed O’Neill’s character Jay at a card game during a trip to Palm Springs. Read the rest of this entry »

In honor of Veterans Day, this week’s show had a military theme and the audience was filled with members of the armed services, including former soldier and “DWTS” champion J.R. Martinez (ex-Brot, “All My Children”). It’s also a double elimination week, since no one was booted last time. So the stakes were high. In addition, the couples performed two dances. One on their own and one with a third member during the trio round.
First up, Kelly & Val danced the Viennese Waltz. Len thought it flowed nicely, but the movements were too sharp on occasion. The crowd booed and Carrie Ann interrupted to say it was beautiful and lyrical. Bruno called Kelly a “twinkling twirler,” who never lost the beat and gave it all her soul. Carrie Ann gave Kelly more praise for her commitment every week. Carrie Ann & Bruno gave them 9.5s, while Len awarded them a 9. Read the rest of this entry »
Look for Barbeau to turn up as Victoria’s (Madeleine Stowe) mother Marion on November 25. The episode will not only feature Victoria’s flashbacks of her mother, but it will also show Emily on her first mission for Takeda (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) in 2006, where she encounters Aiden (Barry Sloane) and possibly Ashley (Ashley Madekwe).

While they continued to tease the unlabeled stated of their relationship, Kelly & Val performed a fusion dance consisting of the Fox Trot and Cha Cha. Len thought they captured the essence of both dances, but pointed out an “incident” during the Fox Trot. However, he called it lovely overall. Bruno thought it was a flashy Cha Cha, yet it retained the sophistication of the Fox Trot. Great improvement. Carrie Ann knew how difficult the dances were to combine, but they did it well and with sexiness. Kelly & Val received three nines.
This week also tasked the couples with competing in a Swing Dance Marathon. As they danced side by side, the judges tapped out the teams one by one. The duos earned points in accordance with the order of elimination. Kelly & Val were the runners up, earning them nine extra points for next week. Melissa & Tony were the winners, receiving an extra ten points. Read the rest of this entry »
Despite being at the bottom of the leaderboard, Kelly & Val survived another week. They weren’t even in the bottom three. While Kelly & Val will return next week, the same cannot be said for Sabrina & Louis who went home tonight. What do you think of the results? Share your thoughts below.

Kelly & Val entered Country Week at the bottom of the leader board. They danced a tango to Carrie Underwood’s “Good Girl.” Not only did the couples perform their individual dances tonight, but they were also part of a group dance.
After Kelly & Val’s tango, Carrie Ann called the dance ambitious and said it was a nice comeback from last week. Len thought it was a bit hectic, but it was kept under control. Kelly came out and attacked it. Bruno thought Kelly was back in the game. The duo, whose dance ended in a kiss (real or for effect?) received three 9s. Read the rest of this entry »

For the team dance, Kelly & Val, Gilles & Peta, Kirstie & Maks and Cheryl & Emmitt danced a wacky performance to “Gangnam Style.” Host Tom Bergeron said it was the most fun he’s had in 15 seasons. As for Len, it was the craziest number he’s ever seen. It wasn’t tight or together, but he was out of breath watching it because it was fun. Bruno asked for the towel Giles was wearing around his waist because he was wetting himself. Carrie Ann called the team a hot mess, but sometimes it’s excusable because it turns into crazy, fun, insanity.
The team received all 9s from the judges. No one was eliminated so the scores will be carried over to next week, which will be country week.
