Dancing With the Stars 2011 (DWTS) Season 13, Week 3 Recap 10/3/11 – Live

By on October 3, 2011

It’s already week 3!  Wow, this season is going by quick. Tonight the stars are dancing from the heart, choosing songs that represent the most memorable year in the stars’ lives. The stars are sharing their personal stories before dancing.

Rob Kardashian’s year was the year his dad passed, his mother Kris Jenner had a tear in her eye when the camera panned to her.

Chyna was up next and said 1990 was a life changing year for her, the year ‘Hold On’ was released. They got the first 9 of the season!

Chaz chose this year, as he said it’s the best he’s ever felt he chose a song written and sang by his father, Sony Bono.

Kristin chose 2005 when she chose her career in entertainment.

Carson chose 2003 when Queer Eye for the Straight Guy came out, he said the show was the blessing that allowed him to feel comfortable and proud of who he was.

J.R’s year was the year he got injured in Iraq, he told an extremely emotional story regarding this time. He’s dancing for all the soldiers who weren’t able to make it home. He got a standing ovation for what seemed like 5 minutes. There was not a dry eye in the house, it was a dance and experience that will live on in DWTS history.

Nancy Grace chose to dance to “Moon River” a song that held relevance as it was the first lullaby she sang to her children and she walked down the aisle to it. She had a near death experience in the hospital we learned about.

Ricki said last year was her most memorable year as she got divorced and her house burnt down but she also met her new husband and feels love has brought her back to life. Ricki and Derek got best score of the season so far 27/30.

Hope Solo chose this year because of her journey to the World Cup.

Lastly David Arquette said this last year was the most memorable of his life because of his failed marriage. He said it’s made him take a good look at himself so he can be there for his daughter.

This night’s dances were very emotional for the stars and it showed in vast improvements for all of them! Unfortunately it’s not looking that good for Chaz- if it was based on judges scores he would get the boot. Everyone showed high scores except him. Remember to vote for your favorites tonight and come back tomorrow night for a recap of the results show!
