Here’s a quick look at some of the casting announcements made recently:

According to Entertainment Weekly, the whistle may soon be blown on a Ugly Betty hunk.

Back in May, I declared Eddie Cibrian to be ABC’s Hottest Co-Star of the Year. Unfortunately, the hot gym teacher will apparently be taking his

dimples over to another network. Cibrian, who was only scheduled to appear in four Betty episodes this season, has now lined up a short arc on USA’s .

So what will Coach Tony Diaz’s eventual departure mean for Hilda? Well, if she’s half as devastated as I am—it’ll probably mean lots of nights spent with Ben & Jerry.

DWTS Updates: Cristian de la Fuente, Mark Ballas and Derek Hough

Cristian de la Fuente on Dancing with the Stars

Nearly four weeks after an his on-camera injury, actor Cristián de la Fuente is finally getting a chance to rest his arm. Back on April 28, the Dancing with the Stars finalist ruptured a tendon while dancing the Samba with his partner Cheryl Burke. Although it was determined he would need to have surgery, his doctors allowed him to continue on with the competition.

Surprisingly, despite his limited range of motion, the telenovela star rebounded with more focused performances and higher scores. Unfortunately, his inability to carry off more dazzling lifts - and Kristi’s undeniable skill - kept him from snagging the mirrored ball trophy in the end.

Dancing with the Stars 6: Week 10 Winner

Dancing with the Stars 6 Final 3

On last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars: Season 6, the last contenders got their chance to prove they were worthy of the finals. In the first ever “face off,” all three couples performed the same style of dance (the Cha Cha) within the same song. This was an opportunity for the viewers and the judges to see how they all tackled an identical challenge. Then in the no holds barred Freestyle round, the stars were allowed to bring whatever their momma gave them.

By night’s end:

  • Cristián da le Fuente earned a 26 for his Cha Cha (an improvement from his earlier 21) and a 26 in the Freestyle round.  TOTAL: 52
  • scored a disappointing 24 for his Cha Cha (a tie with his last attempt) and a 27 for the Freestyle. TOTAL: 51
  • Kristi Yamaguchi achieved perfect scores in both styles. TOTAL: 60

In last week’s semi-finals, the remaining four contenders repeated two styles chosen at random. By Tuesday, Jason had fallen into third place and Marissa was given a warm goodbye.

Tonight on , the three finalists performed another two numbers.  In the crowd favorite freestyle dance, the couples were only limited by their imaginations and abilities. In the first ever face-off number, the couples all had to do a 1-minute cha cha segment within the same song.

Who stepped within reach of that mirror ball trophy…and who simply looked out of step? Read on!

On last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars: Season 6, the four semifinalists had the opportunity to showcase their improvement.  Their dances - chosen at random - were all repeats of styles they had done before. 

By night’s end:

  • Jason Taylor got a 28 for his Foxtrot (formerly 22) and a 27 for his Paso Doble (26).  Total = 55.
  • Cristián de la Fuente was coincidentally assigned the same two performances he attempted the night of his injury.  Despite horrible flashbacks, he earned a 27 for his Viennese Waltz (25) and a 29 for his Samba (21).  His total of 56 topped the Miami Dolphin.
  • Underdog Marissa Jaret Winokur scored a 26 for her Quickstep (21) and a 26 for the Rumba (25).  Total - 52.
  • Kristi Yamaguchi racked up a 28 for her Jive (down from her perfect 30) and a 29 for her Tango (27).  Her total of 57 was the best of the evening.

Yesterday’s edition of Dancing with the Stars: Season 6 turned out to be another jaw-dropping event:

  • Kristi’s Samba earned the skater another 26.  (Her first was last week.)  That’s her lowest score to date.
  • Jason Taylor racked up a 23 for his interpretation of the Samba.  He hasn’t seen that number since Week 3.
  • Cristián accumulated three 10’s and finished with his best total ever.  More importantly, the injured actor somehow managed to beat both Jason and Kristi!
