Kaitlyn Bristowe Is Cruella de Vil in 'DWTS' Paso Doble

Dancing With the Stars went spooky for Villains Night — and Kaitlyn Bristowe’s costume couldn’t be more up her alley. The former Bachelorette and proud dog mom channeled Cruella de Vil for a Paso Doble with her partner, Artem Chigvintsev. 

“I’ve always loved 101 Dalmatians, but I could not be more opposite than Cruella de Vil,” Kaitlyn said in a pre-dance package, opening up about how she rescued her two dogs, Ramen and Pinot, from South Korea. 

Kaitlyn and Artem brought some power to the ballroom as they danced it out to “Disturbia” by Rihanna, which is just what Kaitlyn was hoping to deliver. 

“I feel like this is the time to show the judges I can hit those moves harder,” she said, referencing the judges’ comments last week about her having to “attack” her dances more. 

The pair’s performance impressed judge Derek Hough, who called the performance a “great way to end the show.” 

However, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba wanted more. 

“You are a good dancer and I saw you trying really hard tonight. But what didn’t go right was the lift and … it felt like at moments you gave up. I felt like your spirit dropped,” Carrie Ann said. “I don’t want to discourage you, because you are a great dancer, but it was another not great dance of yours.”

“For me, I know you’re very good, but it felt rushed,” Bruno shared. 

Kaitlyn and Artem earned a score of 24/30 for their performance.

A post shared by Dancing With The Stars #DWTS (@dancingabc) on

Kaitlyn and Artem have been killing it week after week on DWTS. Their Samba last week earned them three 9s, for a total of 27/30, and completely surprised Kaitlyn — especially after Carrie Ann critiqued her for holding back when it comes to dancing with her full range of emotions.

“I was not expecting the 9 [from Carrie Ann], so when that happened I was like, ‘OK, now I really want to show her next week that I can do it,” Kaitlyn told ET after the show. 

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

'DWTS': Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson Slay 'Black Swan' Routine

Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson absolutely slayed their Villains Night routine!

During Monday’s Dancing With the Stars, the dynamic dance duo performed a Black Swan-inspired Paso Doble  set to District 78’s “Swan Lake Remix.” The wardrobe department pulled out all the stops this week, dressing a shirtless Nev in black feather pants and Jenna in a stunning white dress with a tutu and matching headpiece.

Judge Bruno Tonioli said, “It has to be perfect… and it was!” while Carrie Ann Inaba commented, “There were high expectations but you met them and you exceeded them.”

“From beginning to end, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so good,'” added Derek Hough. “Just beautiful.”

Nev and Jenna received a total score of 30/30 for the routine, the first perfect score of the season!

We took a dance to the dark side with #TeamBeNeevers, and there’s no going back 😈 @NevSchulman#DWTS#VillainsNightpic.twitter.com/X78DZFCVYv

Ahead of the performance, ballet superfan Nev joked to ET last week that in addition to “schooling” Jenna on ’80s and ’90s history, he’s also been giving her lessons on the art of ballet.

“The only thing I can school her on dance-wise is ballet,” he said. “Otherwise, she knows all the stuff.”

In another interview with ET earlier this season, Nev opened up about why he always wanted to take part in the competition show, but “never thought it would really happen.”

“I had imagined and dreamed it might happen. A lot of people don’t know this about me but I’ve been in the world of dance, both as a dancer and a fan, and as a photographer and filmmaker almost my entire life,” he explained. “I love and am totally obsessed with dance, so I’ve always sort of mused at the idea of maybe one day being on the show.”

'The Voice' Bloopers: Blake Saves Gwen From a Wardrobe Malfunction!

Gwen Stefani is back in her coach’s chair on this season of The Voice, and thankfully, boyfriend Blake Shelton has her back!

Not in terms of the competition — the couple has already faced off over a few hopeful performers — but literally, saving her from a wardrobe malfunction in a new blooper reel from the show’s first week of Blind Auditions.

The clip shows the season 19 coaches — Blake, Gwen, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend — having fun behind the scenes. This mostly consists of Kelly poking fun at Blake, John lamenting his awkward “social-distancing handshake” prop and Gwen having a few mishaps with her stunning custom Dulce Bestia bodysuit.

First, the spangly tassels get caught in a succulent plant backstage, while picking it up off a nearby table. Then, she almost has a wardrobe malfunction!

https://youtube.com/watch?v=Ln3WIM8XE2g%3Ffeature%3Doembed

“Blake, she’s unzipped again,” Kelly announces in between auditions. “Do you wanna zip her?”

While the couple has wasted no time sparring over singers this season, Blake admitted that he was, of course, thrilled to welcome Gwen back to The Voice.

“Having Gwen back is very comforting to all the coaches,” the country star shared. “We were all able to just go back to the game we already knew. We all know how to play each other at this thing. It felt like the old gang got back together again, and we’re having a blast.”

‘The Voice’ Returns for Season 19 Despite the Judges Battling Personal Struggles

“I think that being able to sit down and watch a show that’s so inspiring and will bring inspiration to people, it will definitely bring joy,” Gwen agreed. “Music is the heartbeat of human beings, so I feel really blessed to be here and to be a part of that and to be able to connect around America on the TV.”

“Maybe the reason there’s so much talent is that a lot of people are kind of paused and they get to kind of, you know, follow the dream in a way they didn’t get to because maybe they’re working or they were in school,” she added. “I think there’s kind of a different kind of group of people this time because of the opportunity that we are all paused in the world right now.”

The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. PT/ET on NBC.

Cork’s Eoin Cadogan, Darragh Fitzgibbon and Robbie O’Flynn ruled out of Waterford clash

The Cork hurlers will face into Saturday’s Munster Championship semi-final against Waterford without the services of Eoin Cadogan, Darragh Fitzgibbon and Robbie O’Flynn.

Former dual player Cadogan and 2017 All-Star Fitzgibbon have been ruled out through injury, while O’Flynn is suspended due to a red card received for a high tackle on Fintan Burke in the Rebels’ last National League game in March.

“No different to most squads with the turnaround time we have, we have one or two players that are definitely out,” said manager Kieran Kingston on Monday night.

“Eoin Cadogan is definitely out, Darragh Fitzgibbon is definitely out, and Robbie O’Flynn is out for a suspension he got from the last league game in Galway on March 1.

“That is a bit crazy really that he is missing an inter-county championship game because of a game in a different world.”

Kingston takes charge of his first championship game since the 2017 All-Ireland semi-final defeat to the Déise, but the preparations have been far from ideal.

“There are a couple of other players carrying injuries, who have come back from the club championship,” he said.

“Our lads from the county final are just back two weeks now. We had a significant number of lads involved in the county finals that weekend, some of them are carrying some niggles. We will have to assess that as the week goes.

“We had a great club championship, a lot of lads put up their hand during the club championship, it is just difficult to get some game-time into them in the two weeks that you have when you don’t have a National League or any real prep. The second thing is not having a chance to see the U20s during the year limits your options as you head into this kind of a different season.”

Las Vegas Passenger Hanging Out of Van Pushes Over and Kills Bicyclist Before Falling Out of Car and Dying

Two people were killed in Las Vegas, Nevada, over the weekend in a collision involving a minivan and bicyclist that police are describing as a "senseless act."

Around 7 a.m. on Sunday, several cars were driving recklessly along Las Vegas' Hollywood Blvd toward Sahara Blvd, witnesses told police, according to KSNV News 3. The witnesses said that a passenger in a minivan was hanging halfway out of the car, attempting to strike people on the sidewalk.

The passenger missed two pedestrians, but then struck a middle-aged woman riding in the bicycle lane further down the road, according to KSNV.

The woman fell off her bike and was killed, according to the outlet. The passenger fell out of the minivan in the process of striking her and reportedly hit his head on a light post. The passenger also died.

Lt. Raymond Spencer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told KSNV that calling the deaths "senseless" is an "understatement."

"You have a woman who was out riding her bicycle and they pull up next to her and strike her, causing her to die," Spencer said in an interview with the news station. "It's an absolute senseless act. There's no reason behind this that I can tell you why it occurred, other than complete stupidity."

Las Vegas police did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

According to KSNV, both the driver of the minivan and the deceased passenger are suspects in the case, which is being handled by the department's homicide unit. Anyone with information about the incident is encouraged to contact police.

How Chelsea Handler Got 50 Cent to Say 'F**k Donald Trump'

Chelsea Handler is willing to do a lot to draw support away from President Donald Trump, and it’s apparently working!

Earlier this month, Handler’s ex-boyfriend, 50 Cent, expressed his support for the president in the upcoming election, but now appears to have done a complete 180 after the comedian called him out. 

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Handler got the rapper’s attention by saying that she’d be willing to “seal the deal in more ways than one if he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald Trump.”

“I might be willing to go for another spin if you know what I’m talking about,” Handler told Fallon. 

Posting the video snippet of her interview to Twitter, 50 Cent did in fact backtrack on his support for Trump. “A what, another spin,” he tweeted. “F**k Donald Trump, I never liked him. For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL @chelseahandler @jimmyfallon.”

👀a what, 😳another spin 💫Fu*k Donald Trump, I never liked him. 🤨for all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL @[email protected]/Tya6EqDBFt

The backtracking comes just a few weeks after 50 Cent posted a photo breaking down Democratic challenger Joe Biden’s state-by-state tax plan — Instagram marked the post as “missing context” and linked to a clarification from AP. 50 Cent wrote that the 62 percent listed for New York was too high for him.

“WHAT THE F**K! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” he remarked. “F**K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f**king mind.”

https://www.instagram.com/p/CGiai3nHu9f/

👀WHAT THE FUCK! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, 🏃‍♂️💨FUCK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. 🤷🏽‍♂️I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya fucking mind. 😤

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on

Handler, who briefly dated the rapper in 2011, commented on the post on Twitter, writing, “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend.”

In turn, 50 Cent posted a screenshot of Handler’s comment on the social media site, and lamented that his support of Trump “is effecting [sic] my love life now.”

“@chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl,” he wrote.

🤦‍♂️oh my God this is effecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl. #starzgettheapppic.twitter.com/PctWkzrqCP

Handler responded back to her ex with an offer that she hoped would sway him away from voting for Trump.

“Hey f**ker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily!” she tweeted. “Black lives matter. That’s you, f**ker! Remember?”

Hey fucker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, fucker! Remember? https://t.co/uQsu7DHrRQ

Handler elaborated on this tweet when she was on The Tonight Show, and noted that she hadn’t heard anything directly from her ex. “He shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him, because he’s worried about his own, personal pocket book,” she said.

Election Day is Nov. 3, 2020 – head over to Vote.org to register to vote and get the latest information.

Women on Qatar Airways Flight Strip Searched to See If They Had Given Birth to Abandoned Baby

A group of female passengers on a plane headed from Qatar to Australia say they were humiliatingly violated by authorities who conducted “incredibly invasive” strip searches and medical exams after a newborn baby was found in a terminal bathroom.

The incident occurred on Oct. 2 at Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar, apparently as an attempt by airport staffers to determine who had given birth to and abandoned the child, Australia’s 7 News reported.

A group of women, including 13 Australians, were reportedly removed from their Qatar Airways flights on the tarmac, detained and forced to undergo an inspection in an awaiting ambulance.

“This is a grossly, grossly disturbing, offensive, concerning set of events,” Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Marise Payne said at a press conference on Monday. “It is not something I have ever heard of occurring in my life, in any context. We have made our views very clear to the Qatari authorities on this matter.”

One of the victims, a 31-year-old nurse from Australia named Jessica, told The New York Times that she and her fellow female passengers were split into groups of four and shuffled into two ambulances on the tarmac.

There, she said, she was told to lie down on a table and remove her underwear, despite the fact that she was next to a window with no blinds and more than a dozen men were standing outside.

“I was scared,” Jessica said. “We were all like, ‘Can someone please tell us what is happening?’ All [the female examiner] said was, ‘A baby has been found in a bin, and we need to test you.’”

Jessica told the Times that the process was “incredibly invasive,” and that several older women in the other ambulance had their bellies pressed.

“I was freaking out,” she said. “I still didn’t know what was happening. I remember lying there, I think I was in shock but I was thinking, ‘This isn’t right. This isn’t how this should be done.’… There was no choice in any of it.”

Passenger Wolfgang Babeck told the Times that when the women returned to the plane, they appeared “shellshocked,” and several were in tears.

“I personally found this disturbing,” he said.

Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has formally complained to authorities in Qatar, according to 7 News, which was the first to report the incident this weekend.

“The Australian Government is aware of concerning reports regarding the treatment of female passengers, including Australian citizens, at Doha (Hamad) airport in Qatar,” DFAT said in a statement to the outlet. “We have formally registered our serious concerns regarding the incident with Qatari authorities and have been assured that detailed and transparent information on the event will be provided soon.”

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the airport, which did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment, told the Times that the abandoned newborn has not yet been identified, but is being cared for.

“Medical professionals expressed concern to officials about the health and welfare of a mother who had just given birth and requested she be located prior to departing H.I.A.,” the spokesperson said. “Individuals who had access to the specific area of the airport where the newborn infant was found were asked to assist in the query.”

Qatar Airways did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment.

At the press conference, Payne said that Australia is taking the incident “extremely seriously,” and that next steps will be determined once Qatari authorities make available an incident report.

She said that the Australian citizens involved were in a quarantine period upon returning, and have “been provided with appropriate support through the health process during the period,” including mental health support.

The matter has been referred to the Australian Federal Police, Payne said.

Limerick sent out a statement to the rest of the country, says Jamesie O’Connor

Sky Sports analyst Jamesie O’Connor reviews the weekend’s hurling action after Limerick and Dublin picked up dominant wins.

At half-time on Sunday afternoon, Clare were level with Limerick but they probably needed to have built up a lead.

In the first five minutes after the break, Limerick took control and that was the story of the match. The reigning Munster champions were not as sharp in the first half as John Kiely might have liked. There were probably a few stern words at half-time.

After the restart, they scored five points in as many minutes.

There was a feeling they had another gear, and by God have they shown it. It was seriously impressive. Tony Kelly, who was flawless in the first half, then missed a couple of frees, and you just felt from there that Clare were playing catch-up. Ryan Taylor’s goal gave them a lifeline, but Limerick just stretched their legs again.

Credit must go to the Banner. If they had dropped their heads, the margin would have been far greater than 10 points.

Tactically, the Clare half-backs wanted to sit. But Gearoid Hegarty and Kyle Hayes came deep to get on the ball, and Limerick just built from there. I thought Hegarty was absolutely sublime.

Outside of Tony Kelly, he was the outstanding player on the pitch. The Treaty had guys coming from the bench as well; Seamus Flanagan, David Reidy, Pat Ryan, all hungry to fight for a starting position.

It was a real statement of intent from Limerick: ‘We mean business this year’.

The road to Croke Park on December 13 is going to go through Limerick at some point.

Winter hurling

Limerick scored 0-36. Dublin got 2-31. That is not the type of winter hurling we were expecting.

But in Croke Park on Saturday evening, I have never seen the field look as well. I was pitch-side, and saw the care and attention it was getting before the game.

For the games at HQ, there will be no issues with ground conditions. It’s absolutely immaculate.

When the ball is going to run and bounce, it’s conducive to the better and more skilful teams. You’re more likely to see the scores being higher than the traditional winter hurling game on heavier pitches.

Dublin get the job done

Based on Saturday night, Dublin are a good bit ahead of where they were last year.

Eoghan O’Donnell and Cian O’Callaghan coming back made a big difference to the defence. Defensively they looked really solid. Alan Nolan had nothing to do all day. Conor Burke did very well with the sweeper role.

With the half-forward line; Danny Sutcliffe, Chris Crummey and Cian Boland, along with Donal Burke, they look like they have a lot of pace and athleticism in their attack.

They have plenty of legs, mobility in the middle third of the field, and that is a requirement in the modern game.

Where I was positioned in the stadium, I was close to the Dubs’ substitutes warming up. Liam Rushe and Mark Schutte – who both came off the bench – looked lean and fit.

Next up for the men from the capital is Kilkenny.

You have to be able to compete physically with the Cats in the middle third of the field, and there’s no doubt Dublin have players that can do that.

Crummey gave them size in the half-forward line. He was unselfish on Saturday, with his distribution, popping off the ball to fellas in better positions. Every forward line needs players who are happy to do that.

Eamon Dillon is a guy who sometimes struggles to get into a game, but he is a nice option to have on the bench, for when things open up. ‘Trollier’ showed his explosive impact on Saturday, scoring 1-1 when introduced.

There’s more space in Croke Park than there would be in Parnell Park, and it may well suit guys like him.

Job done for Dublin, but it remains to be seen if they have enough firepower to live with the top teams. Brian Cody would have been impressed, and will know that Kilkenny will have their hands full next weekend.

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden Reportedly Purchase Beverly Hills Compound for $14.7M

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are on the move.

The couple, who share 9-month-old daughter Raddix, recently purchased a $14.7 million compound in Beverly Hills, California, Variety reports.

The new nearly 10,000-square-foot home, which was listed by Ginger Glass of Compass, covers 1.7 acres with a massive main home and separate guesthouse, both designed by ANR Signature Collection. The residence boasts a total of seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms.

According to Variety, the main house features a double-height living room that opens to outdoor gardens and a colossal fireplace. An outdoor breakfast area, a formal dining room, and a designer kitchen with an eat-in island and updated appliances are also located on the main floor.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has its own sitting area, fireplace and private patio, as well as dual master baths and walk-in closets. Six additional bedrooms are in the main home, along with a theater room with its own bath, according to Variety.

The private backyard is dotted with native trees and has an oversized outdoor fireplace and kitchen, and a curved pool that incorporates a spa.

Diaz, 48, and Madden, 41, also own two additional properties in Los Angeles and a condo in New York City, according to the outlet.

Diaz and Madden, who tied the knot in January 2015, announced the birth of their first child on Jan. 3 via Instagram. A source told PEOPLE in June, "Despite everything that's going on, Cameron and Benji are having the best year as a family. They are the perfect team and love being parents."

"For years, Cameron wanted to be a mom," added the insider. "She loves it more than she imagined."

In July, Diaz said during an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that daughter Raddix is "the best thing that ever happened" to her and her musician husband.

"It's been heaven," she gushed, explaining that her daughter is growing "so fast" that she now understands why friends who have kids previously told her to cherish this time.

"Literally every single day, there's just leaps and bounds … and she's not the same baby that she was yesterday," Diaz said. "Where was yesterday? Yesterday is literally gone, and today is a new day, and tomorrow will be a new day that she's a completely different baby."
