Ox Notes: November 18, 2008

After last night’s Dancing with the Stars 7 Semifinals, the contestants chatted with Us Magazine and OK! Magazine. Mel B was also in the ballroom to interview the couples for Access Hollywood.

Next week’s two-hour (yes, two hours) DwtS 7 Finale will feature a performance by Miley Cyrus. It’s Miley!

Cloris Leachman became the latest DwtS 7 contestant to develop a medical condition during the season, even though she’s no longer dancing. She went to the hospital over the weekend for what her reps told People was a "bad cold," though she’s fine now.

Dancing with the Stars 5 contestant Mark Cuban was charged with insider trading yesterday, and so ends my dream of him owning the Chicago Cubs.

This isn’t DwtS news, but The New York Times has a great article about a 12-year-old restaurant critic. Enjoy!
