Ox Notes: August 2, 2007

TV Guide has interviews with Jamie and Kameron, the dancers eliminated last week on So You Think You Can Dance. Jamie reveals that the sparks between her and Hok were fake; he’s actually got a crush on someone else in the cast.

Two years since his appearance on Dancing with the Stars, John O’Hurley has released an instructional dance DVD with his pro partner from the show, Charlotte Jorgensen. When the show returns in September, pregnant co-host Samantha Harris plans to be there "for as many days as I’m feeling up to it."

In news of other co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg has officially joined the cast of The View. While the show is still looking for another panel member, talks appear to be breaking down between ABC and comedian Sherri Shepherd. Apparently, Shepherd wants to be paid the same amount as Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselbeck, even though she’d only be the fifth funniest member of the current panel.

Following up on the story about the orphaned teens allegedly kicked out of the home they shared with a family who appeared on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, a judge dismissed their case against ABC since the show contract wasn’t in their names.
