Ox Notes: September 10, 2007

The Creative Arts Emmy winners were announced over the weekend, and there was a three-way tie in the Choreography category — making DwtS vet Louis van Amstel the only nominee in that category who didn’t get a trophy.

Dancing with the Stars host Samantha Harris has been blogging about her pregnancy for Fitness magazine, and she’s thoughtfully written about all of the companies who’ve been giving her free stuff. Perhaps when she’s done with her custom Plush maternity jeans, she can loan them to Jeri Ryan, who’s pregnant with her own Borg-human hybrid.

In other DwtS news, Season 3 contestant Sara Evans’ husband has gone nuts, filing a monstrous 118-page document requesting records of Evans’ phone conversations with fellow DwtS contestants and dancers. The doc demands that Evans admit to having affairs with 11 men, including Tony Dovolani and Richard Marx. Sara — even if it’s true — never admit to having an affair with Richard Marx!

Season 5’s contestants are training hard at the moment, but Mel B still finds time to dine out, Mark Cuban to blog, and Helio Castroneves to give an interview about his DwtS experience so far.

Sign On San Diego has an article about So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy’s studio.

And Britney Spears made her less-than-triumphant return to the stage last night at the MTV Video Music Awards, imbuing her performance with all the energy of a slug on Valium and sporting some gross and obvious hair extensions. Comedian Sarah Silverman followed Spears’ performance, saying of Brit: "Wow. She is amazing. She is 25 years old and she’s already accomplished everything she’s going to accomplish in her life."
