Ox Notes: May 6, 2008

The one-armed man, Cristian de la Fuente, was understandably the focus of attention after last night’s Dancing with the Stars Performance Show. Entertainment Tonight filed a video report from backstage, while TV Guide and People posted written accounts.

Before last night’s show, Cristian showed off his new arm brace to Access Hollywood.

Yahoo! has another Buzz Session with Joey Lawrence and Diane Mizota. Is anyone else amused that the Buzz Session has a new sponsor every week? This week, it’s Ritz crackers.

Kristi Yamaguchi posted her thoughts on last night’s show in her OK! Magazine blog.

Kristi and partner Mark Ballas were the subjects of two other videos. The Insider filmed Kristi & Mark at a TV Guide photo shoot, and TV Guide caught up with a pair at the magazine’s Sexiest Stars party.

Extra stopped by the set of Dancing with the Stars to watch Mario Lopez film a performance with his Chorus Line castmates for tonight’s DwtS 100th episode special.

Variety has a ton of DwtS coverage on a number of topics: how the show was imported to the US, how cast members are chosen, what the pros want in a celebrity partner, the advantages athletes have, and what a week in the life of a DwtS couple is like.

The most interesting piece in the Variety series on DwtS is Carrie Ann Inaba’s list of her Top 6 celebrity contestants. Only three of the five champions made the list.
