Ox Notes: April 2, 2008

Derek Hough put on a brave face at last night’s Dancing with the Stars Results Show, suffering through pain from a strained neck muscle. Mark Ballas’s father, Corky, was at the rehearsal where Derek hurt himself, and told TV Guide that it might’ve happened because Derek, Mark, and Julianne Hough didn’t warm up before dancing.

During post-show interviews, Derek donned a neck brace, which can be seen in video reports filed by Entertainment Tonight, Extra, and The Insider.

Catching up on some of the backstage reports from Monday night’s DwtS Performance Show, which was watched by 20.29 million viewers, here are links to an article at People.com and Mel B’s video report for Access Hollywood. Mel B is my favorite of the post-show interviewers.

In Mel B’s video, Shannon Elizabeth and Priscilla Presley said that they will dance the Viennese Waltz next week, while some of the other couples will Paso Doble.

DwtS host Tom Bergeron’s plans for the summer include hosting an eco-themed celebrity talk show called Supper Club on Planet Green, and he showed Access Hollywood around the environmentally-friendly house where the show will be filmed.

MTV is airing an alcohol-fueled Real World Awards Show tonight at 10 ET. Us Magazine compiled a slide show of then-and-now photos of some notable Real World cast members.

In an effort to encourage CBS to renew their favorite show for the fall, fans of the vampire drama Moonlight teamed with the Red Cross to organize a nationwide blood drive. The Hollywood Reporter’s James Hibberd notes: "At least executives can take heart that, unlike in the infamous Jericho peanut-mailing campaign, Moonlight fans are using their blood to help a good cause rather than sending it to the network."
