Ox Notes: April 17, 2008

Even if she doesn’t win Dancing with the Stars 6, Marissa Jaret Winokur will have a lot to brag about after the season is over. Sony is developing a daytime talk show for her, which they hope to debut in Fall 2009.

Before he was eliminated, Entertainment Tonight chronicled what a week with Louis van Amstel is like.

When Cristian de la Fuente isn’t rehearsing for DwtS, he takes his adorable daughter to tea at American Girl Place — with Access Hollywood cameras in tow, of course.

Based on information gleaned from interviews posted in yesterday’s Ox Notes, Jason Taylor will dance the Cha Cha Cha next week, Kristi Yamaguchi the Jive, and Marissa the Viennese Waltz.

Ahead of tonight’s new episode of Survivor, TV Guide has an interview with the first member of the jury, Eliza Orlins.
