‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’: Which sports have the best track records?

‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’: Which sports have the best track records?
Seven sports are represented by the 10 athletes on “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes,” including some of the show’s staples. But which sport’s athletes have done the best on the show? You can probably guess. Let’s look at these seven sports’ “Dancing” histories.

Football (Josh Norman)

As everyone knows, football is by far “Dancing”’s favorite sport. They don’t even try to hide it. Nineteen football players have hoofed it before this season, and while they haven’t all made it to the business end of their respective seasons, football has produced four winners, three runner-ups and two third-place finishers. So, no pressure, Josh, to follow in these pigskin players’ footsteps.

Figure skating

Figure skating is “Dancing”’s second favorite sport, though it’s still well behind football. Before this season, six

It’s been decades since Dorothy Hamill made her gold medal-winning Olympics debut in 1976, and now the former figure skater says the sport is in good hands at the 2018 Winter Olympics — thanks to the latest U.S. team.

“It’s been fun to watch everybody,” Hamill, 61, tells People. “It’s so much different than it was in the ’70s, so I just admire them all, all the pressure they’re under. All the skaters … are out of this world.”

With Olympic figure skating kicking off Thursday evening stateside, and the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony happening Friday morning in PyeongChang, People Now took a look back at some of the most memorable moments in Olympic figure skating history.

The video highlights everything from Tara Lipinski’s history-making 1998 victory at the Nagano Games — where she became the youngest female figure skater to win an individual medal — to the dramatic moment when 24-year-old French skater Surya Bonaly landed a stunning (and illegal) backflip during competition.

Vera Wang Reflects on More Than 20 Years of Designing Olympic Figure Skating Costumes

Vera Wang Reflects on More Than 20 Years of Designing Olympic Figure Skating Costumes
Vera Wang is known for designing lavish red carpet gowns and brides’ dream wedding dresses, so she knows a little something about making a major impact on an important day. And nothing she does crystallizes that skill more than her work creating the eye-catching costumes worn by figure skating’s most iconic competitors at the Olympic Games for the past 20 years.

“It’s not for the faint of heart,” Wang told People in an interview for its special issue The Best of Olympic Figure Skating. “If one strap were to break, or if the beading on the sleeve gets caught when they turn,

Nipplegate Revisited: How Justin Timberlake’s Previous Super Bowl Performance Rocked the World and Changed the Internet

Nipplegate Revisited: How Justin Timberlake’s Previous Super Bowl Performance Rocked the World and Changed the Internet
For years after the 2004 Super Bowl performance by Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson scandalized the world, the halftime pageant’s producers lived in terror of going near anything that could be considered filth. So it’s a measure of how far we’ve come that Justin Timberlake will presumably be singing his current hit, “Filth,” as part of Super Bowl Lii. Fourteen years was enough to ensure the 50-yard line was no longer toxic for the superstar, who’ll be bringing sexy back but leaving nipple shields in their place in history.

In the days following “Nipplegate” — in which Timberlake tore off a piece of Jackson’s jacket, accidentally revealing her mostly bare breast, under mysterious circumstances that are debated by conspiracy theorists to this day — there looked to be damage to her career, damage to his career, and a crackdown on sexual leniency on TV. But only the first of those came true, as Jackson

Oscar Best Picture Contenders Reach Voters With Nostalgia

Oscar Best Picture Contenders Reach Voters With Nostalgia
Historical movies have a reputation for tugging at the heartstrings of both Academy voters and fans, just ask anyone who regularly watches “Gone With the Wind” or spends evenings cozied up with Turner Classic Movies. But this year, a series of period-set releases also come with a twinge of nostalgia. This only makes them more endearing.

Call Me by Your Name

Nostalgia Trigger: First Loves; Self-Discovery

Just about everyone has a coming-of-age story, no matter your sexual orientation. Director Luca Guadagnino’s film, which is based on James Ivory’s adaptation of the heart-swelling André Aciman novel, chronicles a love affair between a 17-year-old boy (Timothée Chalamet) and the attractive American student (Armie Hammer) who comes to stay with his family in the Italian countryside during the early 1980s. It could be compared to 1971’s “Summer of ’42,” with its message of sexual awakening and young love is strong enough for a month of throwback Thursdays.

There's nothing sweeter than holding the title of ABC's first-ever DWTS champion! Since winning the mirrorball, Monaco continued to portray the role of Samantha McCall on the network's daytime drama, General Hospital. Monaco made her most recent return to the show during season 25, pairing up with her close pal, Cheryl Burke, and former NFL star Terrell Owens for Trio Night.

Season 2: Drew Lachey & Cheryl Burke

The 98 Degrees singer had so much fun learning how to dance on the show, that he joined the pros and troupe dancers on their DWTS tour after winning the title. At the time, he had no idea that his brother, Nick Lachey, would later compete on season 25 of the show with Peta Murgatroyd. Unfortunately for Nick, he didn't have as much luck -- he and Peta were the fifth couple to be eliminated from the competition.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom: Why Losing My Virginity in College ‘Really Messed with My Head’
Now that she’s starring on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Rachel Bloom freely performs songs about getting frisky, but her cheeky take on sexuality comes after years of struggling with how her own life was stacking up to what she saw on TV.

“I remember being a teenager and teens were always portrayed on TV — everyone was having sex all over the place,” she told People exclusively at last week’s Paley Honors at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. “I lost my virginity in college and it really messed with my head.”

When Bloom was a teen, she wondered, “Should

Paley Center to Celebrate Women in Media and Honor Carol Burnett

Carol Burnett in “Signed, Sealed, Delivered”: The Hallmark Channel

Women will be the main focus of the upcoming Paley Center Honors gala. According to Variety, the Paley Center will celebrate “the achievements of women in media” during its May 17 ceremony. The event will also pay special tribute to comedy legend Carol Burnett.

“That Girl” actress and activist Marlo Thomas will provide the opening remarks at the gala. “What’s so compelling about women’s roles on television is that they have reflected — and often instigated — the seismic changes that have taken place in our culture for the last half century,” Thomas observed. “In the early days of TV, women were supposed to be perfect — innocent and chaste, cooperative and never angry, an ideal wife and supermom. It took warriors to break through and depict women in all their complex, imperfect splendor.”

Television comedy icon Burnett stressed, “I will always be grateful for the opportunity to be on television as long as I have. It is a wonderful and powerful medium that, when done well, can impact millions of lives in a positive way.” The Emmy winner added, “It’s very exciting to take part in this special evening with these amazing women.”

Other high-profile women in TV like Lauren Graham (“Gilmore Girls,” “Parenthood”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”), Julianna Margulies (“The Good Wife”), Mariska Hargitay (“Law & Order: Svu”), and Chrissy Metz (“This Is Us”) will attend. Olympic track and field athlete Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill, and journalists María Elena Salinas and Paula Zahn are also set to participate.

Burnett has been a regular presence on TV since the 1960s and solidified her place in comedy history with “The Carol Burnett Show.” The variety show ran from 1967 to 1978 on CBS. And Burnett is set to return to TV soon: her next project, “Household Name,” secured a formal pilot pickup from ABC in February.

The Paley Center Honors will be held May 17 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York.

Paley Center to Celebrate Women in Media and Honor Carol Burnett was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Will Ferrell, Christina Aguilera and Jimmy Fallon Have a 'Tight Pants' Love Triangle on The Tonight Show
It's a tight pants-off!

Will Ferrell once again donned a pair of tighty whities (the other kind) while sporting a Dorothy Hamill hairdo and groovy '70s vibe while warbling an ode to "White Pants" on The Tonight Show Monday.

Christina Aguilera joined the Zoolander 2 star onstage as his white-pants-wearing wife, and also sang her love for the skintight garment.

Things appeared blissful until Jimmy Fallon appeared onstage, staunchly singing that his white pants are superior.

When the duo snootily retorted that their new baby had been deemed "the heir to the tight pants throne," the late-night host shot back that the baby might,

Decades before Serena Williams was firing off first serves and Lindsey Vonn was shushing down mountaintops, figure skater Dorothy Hamill was the biggest deal in women's sports.

USA Says Goodbye to “Psych,” “Scrotal Recall,” and The “Sherlock” Gay Bar Scene that Got Cut

News

The original version of Sherlock‘s stag night montage included a scene in a gay club that didn’t make it into the final version. “There were lots of topless men going past, and (Sherlock and John) are just like, ‘Why are we here?’,” Martin Freeman told a Q&A audience. The bit was cut because the montage was determined to be too long.

Psych will air its final episode after the current, eight season wraps on March 26. On the bright side, fans are promised the finale will provide closure and will be followed by a farewell talk show.

I guess this means there won’t be that Sherlock crossover I hoped for.

Javier Bardem Goes Full Weirdo in New Stills From ‘The Counselor’

There’s a definite formula going for Javier Bardem. The wackier his haircut and outfit, the better the man’s performance. Think of that Dorothy Hamill ‘do in No Country for Old Men. Or his oh-so chic cream ensembles and bleached brows in Skyfall. Now gaze at these stills and tell me why I’m so excited to see The Counselor. The Ridley Scott film is an all-star ensemble that pairs Bardem with heavy-hitters like Cameron Diaz, real-life wife Penelope Cruz, Michael Fassbender, and Brad Pitt, as seen through these newly released stills. While the beautiful people are clearly beautiful, Bardem and Diaz are the most interesting to look at; the couple knows how to dress. Flowing caftans, rose-tinted glasses, printed silk shirts – it’s like Hunter S. Thompson was a billionaire drug lord and not just a normal drug user. The film, from a Cormac McCarthy script (No Country for Old Men) centers on a lawyer
