Dancing With The Stars is well underway here in Cali. First off is radio host Mike Catherwood. That humorous story courtesy of the AP.

‘LOS ANGELES — Radio host Mike Catherwood is the first celebrity voted off the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Catherwood drew the lowest score when the audience vote was combined with the judges’ tally on the hit ABC series, which launched its 12th season last week.

His exit Tuesday leaves 10 contestants, including a high-scoring Ralph Macchio of “Karate Kid” fame. Others in the field are Kirstie Alley, talk-show host Wendy Williams, actress Chelsea Kane, singer Romeo, reality star Kendra Wilkinson, model Petra Nemcova and athletes Sugar Ray Leonard, Hines Ward and Chris Jericho.

“Loveline” radio show co-host Catherwood was teased by “Dancing” host Tom Bergeron for joining the ranks of other past competitors, including David Hasselhoff, who were first out the door.

“It puts me on the Mount Rushmore of terrible dancers,” responded a good-natured Catherwood, who was paired with dancer Lacey Schwimmer. He said being on the show was “nothing but a pleasurable experience.”

Go Ralph MacchioPetra Nemcova & Kendra Wilkinson – I say!

Ralph is original Jersey Shore meets Japan in an American hood Hollywood talent. He was like Justin Bieber in his day as a teen phenom. But can he dance?

“[Simon Atlee's] favorite saying was, ‘The day without laughter is a day wasted,’ ” she said. “He was so kind and so respectful for people. He loved people. He loved life… Just water rolling and rolling, and when you close your eyes, just water…People were running away and screaming…It was just so … surrealistic… Then the water flooded the bungalow and pulled us outside in seconds… Simon was just saying, ‘Petra, Petra, what’s going on?’… I was was swept into a current of debris… In that moment, the power of the water was bringing all the fallen trees, all the broken buildings and all the wood. It was such a strong current, you couldn’t do anything. You just had to go with it”–says Petra Nemcova, a Tsunami survivor who lived by clinging to a palm tree for eight hours and praying for others. Sadly her boyfriend Simon Atlee did not survive the Tsuami.
