The 65-year-old Brit was spotted looking lovey dovey with Shuman last night at the Ok! magazine party, but things haven't gotten that serious just yet between the two. A source tells us that Lythgoe was gushing to partygoers about his new leading lady, confessing that the two "met on Twitter!"

Monday’s performance show for the Dancing With the Stars semifinals didn’t technically have a theme, but I’d like to propose one that became evident during the two-hour broadcast: “One of These Things Is Not Like the Other.”
It’s hard to openly discuss this season’s Final Four without acknowledging the Insensitive Elephant in the Room: Even though Noah Galloway has been nothing short of inspirational in his efforts on the dance floor, he just can’t match Rumer, Nastia and Riker in their skill and range.

Oh, dance fans, I had a hard time watching this episode of "Dancing with the Stars." Don't get me wrong, there's actually a lot of great dancing here for America's Choice and a trio round. The problem is, every couple to perform reminds me of last week's travesty: the heart-breaking elimination that sent home our beloved Willow. She should still be here, and it's disgusting to me that she's not. It's particularly hard to be objective about Chris and Robert when I'm still so angry over Willow's ouster.
But there's still lots to admire in this exciting "race to the semi-finals" episode, filled with chills, spills, high pressure, and even two birthdays. Yes, Erin is presented with a cake for her birthday, which she doesn't eat herself (women almost never eat on television) but shares with Tom for his 60th birthday on Wednesday. It's also America's Choice, as the fans »
