Cameron is one heck of a ladies’ man, Jane finds strength in numbers and more…
Ladies’ Man: Is All My Children soap star Cameron Mathison thinking of joining the cast of Big Love? He sure had some practice juggling multiple partners at Monday’s show. “I’ve got my real wife and my TV wife here in the audience tonight,” Mathison said. And what about his dance partner, Edyta Sliwinska? “She’s my mistress for one minute and twenty seconds,” Mathison joked.
A Family Affair: Jane Seymour could not have performed after the death of her mother without the support of her husband James Keach and her kids. When the show went to commercial following the judges’ praise for her tango, the audience gave her another standing ovation. That’s when Seymour rushed over to where Keach and company were sitting. Tears streamed down her face as she embraced Keach and high-fived her twin sons John and Kristopher. Cat Call: She’s a Wildcat in High School Musical, but in real life actress and DWTS season three alum Monique Coleman is a fan of Cheetah Girl Sabrina Bryan. “She brings a lot of character and skill to the dance and I am really proud of her,” Coleman said, noting that she was “glad to be a spectator.” So did Coleman, who was third runner-up in 2006, have any words of wisdom for Bryan? “No. I’ve watched her dance and I don’t think she needs it. I think she is doing just fine!”
Singled Out: Bachelors past (Bob Guiney) and present (Brad Womack) were in the audience Monday night, prompting judge Len Goodman to tell the fellows during a commercial break, “I was asked to be a bachelor once.” Host Tom Bergeron quipped, “Oh? AARP has a new cable channel?”
Walk The (Fine) Line: When pre-show nerves start to get the best of Mel B., her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy knows exactly what to do. “He grabs my hand and he takes me for a walk,” Brown told PEOPLE. “I jibber-jabber the whole way … And by the end of the walk I’ve got nothing else to say.” Chmerkovskiy says it’s his proven method. “I’ve learned after having to deal with female partners for almost 20 years that if you get into a conversation, you’re doomed because then you get into an argument and a fight and then it’s over. So what I do is we go for a walk and I just listen to everything and by the time we get back she has nothing else to say. It’s the only way.” –Monica Rizzo
