While the four-year-old was visiting the NFL star at his Texas home, he suffered an injury to the head that left a mark above his right eye. In a text message exchange that's reportedly between Peterson and the child's mother, Peterson seems to admit <a href="http://www.khou.com/story/news/investigations/2014/09/15/new-accusations-peterson-injured-another-son-while-disciplining-4-year-old/15693941/" target="_blank">the kid "got a whopping in the car." </a>The conversation, obtained by Houston TV station KHOU was as follows:</p> <p>Mother: "What happened to his head?"<br /> Peterson: "Hit his head on the carseat."<br /> Mother: "How does this happen, he got a whooping in the car"<br /> Peterson: "Yep"<br /> Mother: "Why?"<br /> Peterson: "I felt so bad. But he did it his self.</p> <p>Since the story broke about the second incident of alleged abuse, Peterson's lawyer <strong>Rusty Hardin</strong> has defended his client, claiming that the allegation was untrue and authorities never pursued it.</p> <p>"The allegation of another investigation into Adrian Peterson is <a href="http://www.people.com/article/adrian-peterson-second-child-abuse-complaint?hootPostID=45735aa8f8ef2135b505c0533c27f6c0" target="_blank">simply not true</a>," Hardin said in a statement to <em>People</em>. "This is not a new allegation, it's one that is unsubstantiated and was shopped around to authorities in two states over a year ago and nothing came of it. An adult witness adamantly insists Adrian did nothing inappropriate with his son. There is no ongoing or new investigation."</p> <h1> Peterson Reactivated, Writes Statement</h1> <p>On Monday, the <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/adrian-peterson-to-play-in-week-3-says-hes-not-a-child-abuser-in-statement-12890" target="_blank">Minnesota Vikings reactivated Peterson</a>, whom they had deactivated in light of his indictment on child abuse charges. The franchise claimed that upon further examination of the situation, they felt it was most prudent to allow the legal process to move forward and permit Peterson to get back to training with his time.</p> <p>Following the news that he'd be able to play in the Viking's week 3 game, Peterson released a statement in which he attempted to explain his misguided attempts at discipline via corporeal punishment. "I have to live with the fact that when I disciplined my son the way I was disciplined as a child, I caused an injury that I never intended or thought would happen," wrote Peterson, who had struck his son at least 10 times with a switch. "I know that many people disagree with the way I disciplined my child. [...] I have learned a lot and have had to reevaluate how I discipline my son going forward."</p>Tue, 23 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10lp2hljzqjkg/1fuj30yjw2n4coo/1ofkk05jlnyf/8aowcieaq34ss/1ofkk05jlnyf/58ta8r9n1dc8ssw/2zf4p27ulo8/1iqcptf7gftw0s/l9be81swutek/g2e5oiszsmo/kdyej28witwo4/2j0q5zqb8gu8w4wk<![CDATA[Jack Huston Lands Titular Role In 'Ben-Hur' Remake]]>http://uinterview.com/news/jack-huston-lands-titular-role-in-ben-hur-remake-12923<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/jack-huston-lands-titular-role-in-ben-hur-remake-12923'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/e3a6d56745c07e38f1e87978d5fe8df1-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Jack Huston</strong>, best known for playing Richard Harrow on <em>Boardwalk Empire</em>, has joined the cast of the <em>Ben-Hur</em> remake in the titular role originated by Charlton Heston.</p> <h1> Jack Huston Cast At Ben-Hur</h1> <p>MGM and Paramount announced <a href="http://deadline.com/2014/09/ben-hur-remake-cast-jack-huston-boardwalk-empire-835419/" target="_blank">Huston’s casting as Ben-Hur </a>on Tuesday, reported Deadline.</p> <p><em>Ben-Hur</em> follows the story of two young men – one a Jewish prince (Ben-Hur) and the other the son of a roman tax collector (Messala) – who are friends growing up in Jerusalem prior to the Roman Empire taking control of the region.

It usually comes at a cost to the art form and the artist…which has big implications, not for us n U2, but for future musicians and their music…all the songs that have yet to be written by the talents of the future…who need to <a href="http://www.u2.com/news/title/remember-us/" target="_blank">make a living to write them</a>,” Bono wrote on Sept. 9.</p> <p>While Bono appears to be aware of the potential consequences to releasing a huge album for free to iTunes customers, it’s unclear what the famous musician is really trying to say about how his album will affect a new generation of musicians.</p>Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10lp2hljzqjkg/1fuj30yjw2n4coo/1ofkk05jlnyf/8aowcieaq34ss/1ofkk05jlnyf/58ta8r9n1dc8ssw/2zf4p27ulo8/1iqcptf7gftw0s/l9be81swutek/g2e5oiszsmo/kdyej28witwo4/4jblzw0a35ogcc<![CDATA[Meredith Vieira Opens Up About Past Abusive Relationship, Explains Why She Stayed]]>http://uinterview.com/news/meredith-vieira-opens-up-about-past-abusive-relationship-explains-why-she-stayed-12921<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/meredith-vieira-opens-up-about-past-abusive-relationship-explains-why-she-stayed-12921'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/14d2cddb8121f3fafd4e68fe6e9ce075-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Meredith Vieira </strong>recently opened up about her own history of being a victim of domestic abuse on her talk show and explained why it was so hard to leave.</p> <h1> Meredith Vieira On Domestic Abuse</h1> <p>Vieira, 60, admitted on <a href="http://meredithvieirashow.com/" target="_blank"><em>The Meredith Vieira Show</em></a> that before she married her husband of 28 years, <strong>Richard Cohen</strong>, she was in an abusive relationship. She explained that she had loved this man and endured his abuse as it went from a rough arm grab, to throwing her into a shower with scalding water before locking her out of the apartment.</p> <p>“It started out, we'd have a fight and he'd just <a href="http://www.people.com/article/meredith-vieira-reveals-past-abusive-relationship" target="_blank">sort of grab my arm</a>. I didn't think a lot about it, and then it turned into pushing me into a wall and then it went beyond that, to (his) actually taking his hand and grabbing my face and saying, 'I could ruin your career if I wanted to and no one would watch you,’” said Vieira. “There was the night, we shared an apartment, and he threw me into a shower, naked with scalding water, and then he threw me outside into the hallway. We lived in an apartment building, and I hid in the stairwell for two hours until he came again, crying, 'I promise I won't do this again.’”</p> <p>Vieira endured the relationship until she was offered a new job that took her to another state and away from her abuser. When reflecting on why it took her until that point to escape, the talk show host can only surmise that it was fear and possibly a sense of guilt.</p> <p>“I'm a smart woman ... (and heard) a lot of people say, 'Well, who would stay in that situation?' Somebody who doesn't have the wherewithal to get out, the means to get out. (But) I had that. I had a job at the time, and I kept in this relationship. I've done a lot of thinking about why, and I think part of it was fear. I was scared of him,” admitted Vierra. “I was scared if I tried to leave something worse could happen to me. Part of it was guilt, because every time we would have a fight he would then start crying and say, 'I promise I won't do it again,' and I would feel like maybe I contributed somehow to this.”</p> <p>Vieira opened up about her own experience with domestic abuse in light of the incident<a href="http://uinterview.com/news/janay-rice-defends-husband-ray-rice-after-release-of-new-video-12825" target="_blank"> involving Baltimore Raven’s <strong>Ray Rice</strong></a>, who punched his then-fiancé, now-wife <strong>Janay Palmer</strong> in an Atlantic City hotel elevator. Though Rice has not been charged for the assault, the video that catches him knocking Palmer unconscious has sparked debate about domestic violence and what needs to be done to curb its prevalence in our society. As Vieira points out, domestic violence is far more than an NFL issue.</p> <p>“I know [domestic violence] is rampant in this country, and we all have to accept the fact that it's not just an issue with the NFL – it's an issue with all of our lives,” Vieira said in closing. “And until we take it seriously, more and more women are going to get abused."</p> <p> </p>Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10lp2hljzqjkg/1fuj30yjw2n4coo/1ofkk05jlnyf/8aowcieaq34ss/1ofkk05jlnyf/58ta8r9n1dc8ssw/2zf4p27ulo8/1iqcptf7gftw0s/l9be81swutek/g2e5oiszsmo/kdyej28witwo4/1cpljdt0c2o0s0g<![CDATA[Zachary Quinto Respects 'Michael' Co-Star James Franco As A "Provocateur"]]>http://uinterview.com/news/zachary-quinto-respects-michael-co-star-james-franco-as-a-provocateur-12920<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/zachary-quinto-respects-michael-co-star-james-franco-as-a-provocateur-12920'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/65805bd23bc21556caa5b1191a0f1934-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Zachary Quinto</strong> voiced his support for his <em>Michael</em> co-star <strong>James Franco</strong>’s LGBT activism in a recent interview, calling the actor a “provocateur.”</p> <h1> Zachary Quinto Approves Of James Franco's Activism</h1> <p>Quinto, who is openly gay, was recently asked about Franco’s reputation for having a particular interest in LGBT issues and themes, which he explores on screen in films like <em>Milk</em>, <em>Howl</em> and <em>Interior.

Furthermore, Quinto was asked if Franco’s position as a public figure and champion for LGBT rights is somewhat diminished by the fact that Franco is a straight male.</p> <p>Quinto admitted to having discussed the issue with Franco, but said that he sees Franco as a man less interested in himself and his own beliefs, and more interested in the dialogue his position allows him to create.</p> <p>“My feeling about James in particularly is that he is someone very interested in generating a dialogue, and his personal position or perspective on something is less important to him than what his position will generate in other people.

However, what the late king's cause of death was has long been a mystery – partially due to the fact that his remains had been lost until they were unearthed in 2012. Upon receiving King Richard III's remains, a team at the University of Leicester conducted a variety of tests in a study to determine exactly what led to the king's demise.</p> <p>“<a href="http://www2.le.ac.uk/offices/press/press-releases/2014/september/scientists-use-modern-forensic-techniques-to-identify-most-likely-cause-of-king-richard-iii2019s-death" target="_blank">Richard’s injuries</a> represent a sustained attack or an attack by several assailants with weapons from the later medieval period,” said <strong>Sarah Hainsworth</strong>, a University of Leicester professor and a co-author of the study. “The wounds to the skull suggest that he was not wearing a helmet, and the absence of defensive wounds on his arms and hands indicate that he was otherwise still armored at the time of his death."</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" scrolling="no" src="http://www.washingtonpost.com/posttv/c/embed/8274607a-3e5f-11e4-a430-b82a3e67b762" width="300"></iframe></p> <p> </p> <p>The 11 wounds that Richard sustained were likely inflicted by a variety of weapons, both leading up to and after his death. Most likely, one of the wounds to his skull was the fatal blow. Accounts of his death claim that his horse had gotten stuck in a marsh, forcing him to dismount, after which he was attacked by a number of ememy soldiers. It is thought that he was likely attacked from above, meaning he could have been kneeling or otherwise on the ground when attacked.</p> <p>“<a href="http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-leicestershire-21245346" target="_blank">Medieval battlefields saw an array of weapons</a> used, from swords, battle hammers, maces, arrows and even early firearms,” <strong>Robert Woosnam-Savag</strong>e, curator of European edged weapons at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds, told the BBC. “Richard probably got within a few yards of Henry before his horse probably became stuck in marshy ground or was killed from underneath him. On foot, with foot soldiers closing in, the fight becomes a close infantry melee.”</p> <p>Richard III's remains were found in August 2012 under a parking lot in Leicester. By 2013, DNA testing provided proof that the <a href="http://uinterview.com/news/body-of-king-richard-iii-found-6451" target="_blank">remains belonged to the king. </a></p>Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10lp2hljzqjkg/1fuj30yjw2n4coo/1ofkk05jlnyf/8aowcieaq34ss/1ofkk05jlnyf/58ta8r9n1dc8ssw/2zf4p27ulo8/1iqcptf7gftw0s/l9be81swutek/g2e5oiszsmo/kdyej28witwo4/jzzg4s34fhl<![CDATA[Nick Jonas On Why He No Longer Wears His Purity Ring]]>http://uinterview.com/news/nick-jonas-on-why-he-no-longer-wears-his-purity-ring-12918<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/nick-jonas-on-why-he-no-longer-wears-his-purity-ring-12918'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/e1c5f56c75102d23814f8b66638820b7-150x150.jpeg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Nick Jonas</strong>, the youngest of the Jonas brothers, recently opened up about why he’s stopped wearing his purity ring.</p> <h1> Nick Jonas On HIs Missing Purity Ring</h1> <p>Nick Jonas, 22, and his brothers <strong>Joe Jonas</strong>, 25, and <strong>Kevin Jonas</strong>, 26, emerged on the pop music scene as an unfailingly wholesome act.

I love that.”</p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/IFJG9bWi7eQ" width="300"></iframe> <p>Johnson later performed “Let It Be” for his final performance, and the judges, again, went wild for the young singer. “You are a star.

The magic man used Stern and Mel B to order cards into red and black piles based on intuition. When the two sets of cards ended up being identical, Stern was certainly impressed, asking, “How did I do that?!”</p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/yj9dbRB9yq0" width="300"></iframe> <p>The judges agreed that Franco never failed to impress them with his magic, and complimented his charming talent as a storyteller. “I have to say, every time you shock me! You make magic become magic. You are great,” Mel B told him.</p> <h1> Emily West</h1> <p><strong>Emily West</strong>, one of Stern’s early favorites, performed Sia’s “Chandelier” for her repeat, taking the stage in a glamorous red dress. West’s performance was a winner for most of the judges, but Mel B wasn’t completely sold, telling her, “I have to be really honest, I much preferred it the first time around.”</p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/hnZVWbvhvXA" width="300"></iframe> <p>West changed it up a little bit for her final performance, singing Robert Flack’s “First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.” West abandoned the theatrics for the performance, appearing alone on stage, and Mel B was quick to change her tune on West, saying, “That was off the chain!

I do hope America votes for you, but it’s going to be tough not going to lie.</p> <p>Dakota, an early favorite, chose to perform a stripped down cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” for his last turn on the America’s Got Talent stage.</p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/iPknezxwnHA" width="300"></iframe> <p>The judges applauded Dakota’s risky move, and Stern said that it was a perfect way to end Dakota’s time in the competition, as it showcased what he does best: “I think this was your best performance, and I always think you are strongest with just your guitar and singing on stage.”</p> <h1> Sons of Serendip</h1> <p>Sons of Serendip performed their cover of Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know” for their repaeat, and had the judges showering the group with love, but Stern pointed out that they might not be what America is looking for. “If you don’t win, I think it is an image problem. You have pure, raw talent.

Meanwhile, Juice (<strong>Theo Rossi</strong>) has Unser (<strong>Dayton Callie</strong>) bound and gagged in a bathtub and Wendy (<strong>Drea de Matteo</strong>) has arrived at Gemma (<strong>Katey Sagal</strong>) and Nero’s (<strong>Jimmy Smits</strong>) where they’re discussing paying for Abel’s preschool over coffee.</p> <h1> Sons of Anarchy Recap</h1> <p>At Wendy’s, Juice ominously wields a knife as he goes over to Unser. But, instead of finishing him off he cuts him free. He then explains to Unser that he’s hiding from the club and Unser realizes that it’s Gemma who is hiding Juice. Unser decides to try to help Juice, knowing that Jax is looking to kill him and that the ex Sons member is reluctant to get out of Charming.</p> <p>Meeting up with August Marks (<strong>Billy Brown</strong>), Jax tells the suited-up gang banger that he’s hooked up the Chinese and the Irish. Though August wants to help Jax find revenge for Tara’s death, he cautions him against waging war in the streets. If he were to do so, it would bring too much attention to the gangs and result in the downfall of the gun expansion. Jax does not like what he hears.</p> <p>At the same time, Tig (<strong>Kim Coates</strong>) and Rat (<strong>Niko Nicotero</strong>) are staking out Lin’s (<strong>Kenneth Choi</strong>) crew which is about to move the guns. In their boredom, the pair starts trading barbs. When the Chinese finally start to shift the guns, Tig fears that they’ll be spotted. To prevent getting caught, he pushes Rat’s head into his lap and pretends to be engaging in some paid-for roadside action.</p> <p>Jax and Bobby (<strong>Mark Boone Junior</strong>), following the August Marks meeting, rendezvous with Sons of Anarchy’s Indian Hills charter president Jury. Jury wants to know the details of Jax's plan. He’s informed that the idea is to cut Lin off from all of his business associates and friends, paving the way for Jax to make a move to befriend him. Eventually, Jax will let him know he’s responsible for his virtual ex-communication and ask who he wants spared. Whoever Lin declares he wants spared will be the first Jax will kill. Lin’s slow and painful death will only come after he endures the pain of loss.</p> <p>After getting in contact with Rat and Tig, Jax and Chibs (<strong>Tommy Flanagan</strong>) learn where the Chinese are. Jax and Chibs jump into the bed of the truck of two of Jury’s muscle men and ride up in a three-car caravan. While the exchange is going down, Jax opens fire, taking down one of Lin’s men at a time. When one of the Chinese hops into a delivery truck and tries to make a fast getaway, Jax chases him down, crashes into his truck and shoots him in the head after learning that the heroin in the brief case is Lin’s. In the end, SAMCRO splits the guns and heroin they took from the trade 50/50 with Indian Mills.</p> <p>Unser, upon leaving Juice back at Wendy’s, heads off to see Sheriff Althea Jarry (<strong>Annabeth Gish</strong>). He wants to help her find out who killed Tara. She agrees to have him join her team and gives him the title of consulting investigator. Though he’ll only receive part-time pay, Unser, who is battling terminal cancer, will get full medical coverage. He’s prepared to give Jarry all of the details she needs about Juice, Jax and the rest.</p> <p>Unser then went to pay a visit to Gemma, who had just broken down into tears after Abel asked her about how she knows Tara is up in heaven now. Unser tells Gemma about his time with Juice and expresses his fear that she’s putting her personal friendships before SAMCRO rules. Naively, he mentions that they’re both tired of counting bodies. When he falls asleep, she opens up his file on Tara.</p> <p>Gemma, after looking over the pictures of Tara’s crime scene and the investigative work Unser has begun, heads over to see Juice. She informs him that she fingered a Chinese guy from Lin’s crew as the one responsible for Tara’s murder and that Jax fell for it. She believes that killing that one man will give her son the closure he needs, unknowing that he has launched an attack on the entire gang. To get Juice to leave town, she gives him more than $4,000 and a burner phone and tells him to head to her dad’s house. He sets out as Gemma told him, but winds up back at Wendy’s.</p> <p>Chatting in the car together, Nero and Wendy bond over their past addictions, as well as the sense they get of being the healthy ones when they’re around Gemma and Jax. After they stop and visit Abel’s school, the two head out to Stockton where Nero sits down the Mayans’ president and Barofsky (<strong>Peter Weller</strong>) to talk about the “coffee” business. On their way back, Nero and Wendy get cornered by Lin. Lin tells them that some of his men and customers are missing and he has a feeling that SAMCRO is responsible.</p> <p>Nero helps Lin set up a meeting with Jax, who flat out denies any involvement in the disappearance of the men – and the products that they were trading. Lin agrees to give Jax until noon the next day to get his men and product back and threatens to bring some violence to Charming if he doesn’t succeed. After the meeting, Jax , Chibs and Bobby go visit the two local muscle men and shoot them dead. They then frame them, dropping the heroin and a gun into the room. Bobby then puts a call into Lin to report what they “found.”</p> <p>After his latest pair of kills, Jax goes to Gemma’s home. Somberly, he bids Wendy goodnight, strokes a sleeping Thomas’s face and gets into bed with Abel, where he sheds a tear.</p> <p><em>Sons of Anarchy</em> airs Tuesdays on FX at 10/9c.</p>Wed, 17 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10lp2hljzqjkg/1fuj30yjw2n4coo/1ofkk05jlnyf/8aowcieaq34ss/1ofkk05jlnyf/58ta8r9n1dc8ssw/2zf4p27ulo8/1iqcptf7gftw0s/l9be81swutek/g2e5oiszsmo/kdyej28witwo4/hvq0copbqd1<![CDATA['99 Homes' Starring Andrew Garfield Gets US Distribution]]>http://uinterview.com/tiff-2014/news/99-homes-starring-andrew-garfield-gets-us-distribution<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/custom_series_news/99-homes-starring-andrew-garfield-gets-us-distribution'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/custom_series_news/4ea3dfee28407cf63c93baf0fa5c9195-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><em>99 Homes</em>, starring <strong>Andrew Garfield</strong> and <strong>Michael Shannon</strong> has officially been bought for distribution by Broad Green Pictures.</p> <p>The drama, about a man (Garfield) who is evicted his home and ends up working for the real estate broker (Shannon) who kicked him out.</p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/WnNEjYGkdHA" width="300"></iframe> <p>Inspired by the recent housing crisis and economic collapse, director <strong>Ramin Bahrani</strong> wrote the film, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival before being featured at both Telluride and Toronto.

Despite a number of media reports claiming that the <em>Hitch</em> actress was pregnant, neither actor confirmed the news. In fact, back in February, Mendes completely refuted the suggestion that they were expecting.</p> <p>"It's so ridiculous,” Mendes told<strong> Ellen DeGeneres </strong>on her daytime talk show. "It all started because I didn't want to go through the scanners at the airport. You know those X-ray scanners, which are really creepy? They basically see you naked, right?

From the only time the actress was spotted out in public since making a red carpet appearance in late February, pictures appeared to show Mendes purposefully covering her stomach with an oversized bag.

Apatow reportedly co-created and wrote <em>Love</em> with<strong> Paul Rust</strong> and<strong> Lesley Arfin.</strong></p> <p>“Judd Apatow has a unique comedic voice that manages to be delightful, insightful, and shockingly frank — often at the same time,” Netflix chief content officer <strong>Ted Sarandos</strong> said in a statement. “Together with Paul and Lesley, he’s bringing a whole new level of agony and ecstasy to this modern day comedy of manners.”</p> <p>Apatow, best known for directing adult comedies like<em> Knocked Up </em>and <em>This is 40,</em> expressed due enthusiasm for getting picked up by the progressive platform – as well as gratitude for getting to work with Rust and Arfin.</p> <p>“I am so excited to get to work with Paul and Lesley on this project,” said Apatow. “Netflix has been supportive in ways I couldn’t create in my wildest fever dreams.”</p> <p><em>Love</em> stars Rust and <strong>Gillian Jacobs </strong>as Gus and Mickey, a dysfunctional couple dealing with things all couples must deal with – such as intimacy and commitment. The catch is that neither is exactly keen on dealing with such things, making it woefully difficult for them to make it work.

A tell-all book about an alleged gay affair with a Hollywood A-lister, in Gotterba’s case, could be a big moneymaker.</p> <p>“This is <a href="http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/09/12/john-travolta-on-those-allegations-battlefield-earth-and-pulp-fiction-20-years-later.html" target="_blank">every celebrity’s Achilles heel,</a>” Travolta told <em>The</em> <em>Daily Beast.</em> “It’s just about people wanting money. That’s all. It happens on many levels.”</p> <p>“Also, I don’t care that much about it.

Though his footwork wasn't too impressive, his sex appeal – which Cheryl is happy to be working with, kept the routine from being a complete bust. The judges were in relative agreement that Antonio has the looks to be a dancing star, but he’ll have to improve his dance skills if he wants to stick around. Score: 25 (out of 40)</p> <p>Dancing the Foxtrot were <strong>Lea Thompson</strong> and her pro partner <strong>Artem Chigvintsev.</strong> The<em> Back to the Future</em> star, who studied dance under <strong>Mikhail Baryshnikov</strong> more than 30 years ago, proved she still has the grace on stage to be a contender. All of the judges were wowed by her technique even though she struggled to stay disciplined in her posture as the dance wore on. Score: 32</p> <p><em>Pretty Little Liars'</em> <strong>Janel Parrish</strong>, paired with <strong>Val Chmerkovskiy</strong>, took on a spirited jive. Janel brought all of the required enthusiasm and pep to the dance, though Val may have choreographed too difficult a routine for the show’s first week. Despite Janel’s struggle to keep up with the pace of the dance, the judges expressed confidence in her ability to improve. Score: 29</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/z22O5OwjQzs?list=UUaKe1aEOef4CaQMZYsblnyA" width="300"></iframe></p> <p><strong>Lolo Jones</strong>, who has competed in both Olympic track and bobsledding events, struggled to bring the same poise in her cha cha with<strong> Keo Motsepe</strong> on <em>Dancing with the Stars. </em>From the get-go, Jones had a hard time getting the steps right and never seemed to find the movement or the rhythm of the Latin dance. Lolo knew she didn’t have a good debut and showed nothing but understanding of the judge’s’ critiques. Score: 22</p> <p>Fashion designer <strong>Betsey Johnson</strong> and <strong>Tony Dovolani </strong>danced and Cha Cha that left more than a little to be desired. At 72, Betsey showed that she can move quite well and is definitely agile enough to pull off some trickier moves. However, when a mistake with a feather boa ends with a slip, the duo failed to recover. The judges were disappointed that Betsey and Tony couldn’t get back into the dance and scored them accordingly. Score: 20</p> <p>Self-proclaimed serious man, political commentator <strong>Tavis Smiley</strong>, gave into his sillier side in his foxtrot with <strong>Sharna Burgess.</strong> While Tavis’ technique was nothing special, the judges appreciated the joy he emanated from the stage and rewarded him with generous scores. Score: 29</p> <p><strong>Sadie Robertson</strong>, known for appearing on <em>Duck Dynasty</em>, took on a jive with <strong>Mark Ballas</strong>. The reality TV star could be heading to the finals this year, as she proved to be a natural talent. Like Disney star <strong>Zendaya Coleman</strong> before her, she has the body type of a dancer – and name recognition in her favor. The judges gushed over Sadie’s performance. Score: 34</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/1HneCEGdRWE?list=UUaKe1aEOef4CaQMZYsblnyA" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>NASCAR driver <strong>Michael Waltrip </strong>danced a cha cha with <strong>Emma Slater </strong>that certainly wasn't any kind of sultry. The dance was a bit campy and goofy and Michael, who doesn’t appear to be too invested in the outcome of the show, was campy and goofy in it. The judges weren’t as won over by Michael’s charms as they’ve been by similar performers in the past. Score: 25</p> <p><strong>Jonathan Bennett</strong>, best known for playing Aaron Samuels in <em>Mean Girls</em>, danced a jive with <strong>Allison Holker</strong>. In the interview segment, Jonathan revealed that he opted to do the show because his dad, who named<em> Dancing With the Stars</em> his favorite show, passed away two months ago. The actor put on a lively performance and showed promise for improvement in the skills department. Score: 30</p> <p><strong>Tommy Chong,</strong> who is more or less on the show because of a bet with Cheech, and <strong>Peta Murgatroyd</strong> danced a cha cha for their first dance of the season. Chong gave his all to the dance, set to “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” surprising the judges with his agility and commitment to the dance. It was far from a disaster for the comedian. Score: 27</p> <p>Former MMA star and actor<strong> Randy Couture </strong>took to the dance floor with <strong>Karina Smirnoff</strong> to perform a foxtrot. Once again, the judges were treated to a surprisingly good performance from someone with little dance experience. Randy worked off of Karina well and made himself believable as a dancer. Score: 31</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="//www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/3PNJFtLgk_g?list=UUaKe1aEOef4CaQMZYsblnyA" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>Paired up with <strong>Derek Hough</strong> is YouTube sensation <strong>Bethany Mota</strong>. Bethany did a decent job with Derek’s choreography and showed the potential to become a more than capable dancer. Holding her back from a knockout performance were a few technical hiccups and not enough personality. Score: 32</p> <p><strong>Alfonso Ribeiro</strong>, who played Carlton on <em>Fresh Prince of Bel Air,</em> danced a jive this week with <strong>Witney Carson</strong>. Learning that Alfonso can actually dance, Witney designed a challenging routine for him, which paid off immensely. Without a doubt, <strong>Will Smith</strong>’s one-time TV costar made it clear he’s the one to beat this season. Score: 36</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/hAYFgFopBe4?list=UUaKe1aEOef4CaQMZYsblnyA" width="300"></iframe></p> <p><em>Dancing With the Stars</em> will air a live results show Tuesday night on ABC at 8/7c.</p>Tue, 16 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/10lp2hljzqjkg/1fuj30yjw2n4coo/1ofkk05jlnyf/8aowcieaq34ss/1ofkk05jlnyf/58ta8r9n1dc8ssw/2zf4p27ulo8/1iqcptf7gftw0s/l9be81swutek/g2e5oiszsmo/kdyej28witwo4/f9z8vx0u8h7u
