Burke, who is now 26, testified against the retired mailman, helping to send him to prison for two decades.

“I’m telling my story,” Burke told the magazine. “They’re not secrets. There’s no shame.”

Dancing with the Stars results May 11 2010

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010
Dancing with the Stars results show on May 11, 2010 sent one more celebrity home from the competition.  It’s now down to just five as of Tuesday night, and the Final Four for the Semifinals of DWTS 2010 was set as of the end of the show.
So who survived to dance another day and who got kicked off DWTS last night?
Nicole Scherzinger was among the safe ones.  She was featured in a “DanceCenter” skit where she was shown cleaning the dancefloor as Jerry Rice, Kenny Mayne (ESPN) and Len Goodman told her not to stay too long.  Jerry Rice popped back out to tell her she missed a spot.  That hard work is paying off for Nicole who is among the top contestants and achieved a perfect 30 Monday night.

Olympic medal winning ice skater, Evan Lysacek is moving on to the semifinals.  Towards the end of the show it was down to Niecy, Chad Ochocinco and Erin Andrews.  They seem to be dangling Andrews in the bottom 3 lately, but she was safe.

So who goes home Niecy or Ochocinco?  Unfortunately it will be Miss Gettin Jiggly wit it, Niecy Nash.  She wasn’t quite as teary-eyed as The Bachelor was upon his exit, but Niecy was so grateful for the time on the show.  After all, she’s a 40 year-old mom of 3 kids, her bubbly and bright personality will be missed!

Good luck to the remaining four celebs as we head into the DWTS Semifinals!

    Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

    Finally, time came for the elimiations on dancing with the stars 2010 last night and nobody could guess who would be kicked off. With Kate Gosselin eliminated last week the show people believed that the show had lost a bit of magic, even though she had never been much of a popular contestant. Last night and it was Jake Pavelka, “The Bachelor”, and Niecy Nash who were in the danger zone but it was Pavelka who was eliminated. holding back the tears, he thanked his partner in his emotional farewell. Aas the series goes on, the prospective winner is becoming less and less obvious. Nicole Scherzinger obviously shone right from the beginning but Chad Ochocinco, who nobody had much noticed at first, seems to be getting better and better. Indeed it was Ochocinco’s tango from the previous night that the judges chose to watch again. Why not let us know your thoughts.

    Kate Gosselin is the latest celebrity to be kicked off ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, and the reality TV star wept last night when it was announced that she and partner Tony Dovolani were the latest to leave. As Kate cried in front of the cameras, Dovolani said, “I give her all the credit for showing up, as exhausted as she was, she still showed up every day. You showed America that it doesn’t matter how much things go against you, you still come out here and give it your best.” Kate apologized for her tears and said, “I love everyone that I met … it was a great experience.” She added that despite her low scores, she gave her best in the ballroom. DWTS judge Bruno Tonioli didn’t seem to agree, as he commented yesterday that “Tony could have had more life out of a frock on a coat hanger.” Though Kate gave it her best shot, it looks like it was time for her to go — after all, she’s got eight kids to take care of, not to mention a new TV show! She should have been the first to go!
