Simone Biles Dishes on Her First Date — and Reveals the DWTS Contestant She Has a Crush on!

Simone Biles has a Dancing with the Stars crush!

On Monday’s week six episode of the reality dancing competition series, the Olympic gymnast performed a samba with pro partner Sasha Farber to the tunes of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” — and dished on her first date.

During her weekly rehearsals, Biles, 19, admitted that mastering the sexiness of the dance was difficult for her: “I want to be sexy. I guess I don’t know my definition of sexy yet.”

“Most kids our age are going out and learning where they fit in in the world and I feel like I’ve missed out on a lot of that,” she said on the ABC show.

“I’ve been on like one date,” she continued. “We went to get frozen yogurt, or sushi. I don’t know which one was a date.”

Asked if she thinks her pro partner, who is engaged to fellow DWTS pro dancer Emma Slater, is sexy, Biles said about Farber, “Sexy is like stretching it.”

But when it comes to a fellow season 24 contestant on the long-running reality show, there is someone who has caught her eye.

Questioned about Rashad Jennings, Biles was smitten on-camera.

“Rashad is very, yeah,” she said with a smile about the former NFL player, and added with a laugh, “Don’t put that out there. He’s going to kill me when he sees this!”

And what did 32-year-old Jennings think of her admiration?

After performing the first dance of the night, and earning a 35/40 from judges, Erin Andrews asked Biles in the skybox, “Thoughts on Rashad, again?” Immediately, Biles burst out into a contagious giggle and was embraced by Jennings, who sported a big smile. Too cute!

Bill O’Reilly Admits ‘I Am Sad That I’m Not on Television’ in First Broadcast Since Fox News Ouster

Bill O’Reilly made his first public broadcast on Monday since his abrupt departure from Fox News last week.

Since parting ways with the network last Wednesday amid sexual harassment accusations, the former O’Reilly Factor host returned with a new episode of his “No Spin News” podcast, which has run for years on his BillOReilly.com website.

To kick off the podcast, O’Reilly, 67, addressed his exit from Fox, admitting, “I am sad that I’m not on television anymore. I was very surprised how it all turned out. I can’t say a lot, because there’s much stuff going on right now.”

“But I can tell you that I’m very confident the truth will come out, and when it does, I don’t know if you’re going to be surprised — but I think you’re going to be shaken, as I am. There’s a lot of stuff involved here,” he continued. “Now, I can’t say anymore because I just don’t want to influence the flow of the information. I don’t want the media to take what I say and misconstrue it. You, as a loyal O’Reilly listener, have a right to know, I think, down the lane what exactly happened. And we are working in that direction, okay?”

The podcast, which is available to the website’s premium members, was the second time O’Reilly has publicly spoken since parting with Fox after 20 years at the network — the first being a statement he released after the news broke.

“Over the past 20 years at Fox News, I have been extremely proud to launch and lead one of the most successful news programs in history, which has consistently informed and entertained millions of Americans and significantly contributed to building Fox into the dominant news network in television,” he said at the time.

O’Reilly continued: “It is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims. But that is the unfortunate reality many of us in the public eye must live with today. I will always look back on my time at Fox with great pride in the unprecedented success we achieved and with my deepest gratitude to all my dedicated viewers. I wish only the best for Fox News Channel.”

In April, The New York Times reported that five women were paid a collective $13 million by O’Reilly and Fox News for agreeing not to file lawsuits or speak publicly about allegations that he harassed them. The settlements — involving women who have either worked with O’Reilly or appeared on his show — took place sporadically between 2002 and 2016.

Addressing the allegations, O’Reilly posted a statement to his website on April 1, emphasizing that his position has made him “vulnerable to lawsuits,” despite the fact that “no one has ever filed a complaint,” about him with the Human Resources Department.

“The worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel,” he wrote. “Those of us in the arena are constantly at risk, as are our families and children. My primary efforts will continue to be to put forth an honest TV program and to protect those close to me.”

Why Nick Viall Admittedly Doesn’t ‘Feel All That Confident’ About DWTS: ‘You Just Don’t Know Who’s Going Home’

Nick Viall is happy to still be competing on Dancing with the Stars, but he’s admittedly not feeling “all that confident” going into week six.

In a PEOPLE exclusive vlog ahead of Monday night’s dance, the former Bachelor star says about last week’s Disney night: “Last week was so much fun with Disney night. Got my best scores so far, which felt really good. But I’m still the middle of the pack, so we’ll see what happens tonight.”

Reflecting on Erika Girardi being eliminated during week five, 36-year-old Viall says “it’s always going to suck,” about saying goodbye to fellow contestants.

“It’s at the point where you just don’t know really who’s going home next,” says Viall. “I don’t necessarily feel all that confident tonight.”

But for the time that he does have left on the show — whatever that may be — he admits, “I’m just trying to enjoy every moment that I can while I’m still here.”

For week six’s Boy Bands vs. Girl Groups theme, Viall has the jive, which is “very difficult, very fast” and has “a lot of opportunities to screw up.”

“It really took a toll on my body this week, especially with the second dance,” he says.

Despite the physical impact that it had on his body, he had fun preparing for the live show with fellow male contestants David Ross, Rashad Jennings and Bonner Bolton.

“We’re the underdogs,” he says about the the male group, and adds, “We’re going to try to win it with personality.”

“The guys have been great to work with. It’s a fun group. A lot of personalities. David and Rashad are awesome, Bonner’s a cool guy, and we’ll see what happens.”

“I mean, I never did,” Morgan said. “That was a period in time where we were all going out to clubs … you know, we didn’t have cell phones. You’d get home to your answering machine, then you go to the same club the next time. It’s like a group thing that goes on for a few nights. was a friend of my girlfriend, in fact, and … we were just being bad, you know? I had an Italian boyfriend at the time, too.”

Abby Lee Miller Breaks Down in Tears Ahead of Weight Loss Surgery: ‘I’m Scared. I’m Nervous’

Abby Lee Miller broke down in tears ahead of her weight loss surgery on Friday.

The former Dance Moms star sat down with Entertainment Tonight prior to going under the knife in Los Angeles for a sleeve gastrectomy.

Wiping away tears from her eyes before entering the operating room for the surgery, which will remove nearly 80 percent of her stomach, the reality star expressed her fears and concerns.

“There’s nobody freaking out if something happens to me,” Miller, 50, tearfully says in the interview, which will air Monday.

In the clip of the interview, Miller can be seen wearing a hospital gown and cap and laying down on the table as the medical team prepares for the surgery.

“I’m scared. I’m nervous,” Miller admits.

In March, the dance instructor announced her resignation from the reality series in an Instagram post, accusing officials behind the popular Lifetime show of treating her “like dirt” after she wrapped filming for season 7B.

Speaking with PEOPLE after her exit, Miller said that her departure “was a long time coming for me,” and said “Nobody knew. I was just so irate.”

Although Miller claimed she hasn’t heard from the network since quitting — “No silver watch was sent to me overnight,” she said — she is open to returning to the show — but only if things change.

“Never say never,” Miller admitted about the possibility of going back. “It just sickens me when people get creative credit with our ideas.”

“A lot of things would have to change. Just the way they pull things out of their butts the last minute and it makes the costuming exhausting,” she continued. “They want me to come to meetings, pre-production, but on my own dime.”

Hell’s Kitchen Chef Paulie Giganti Found Dead at Age 36 from Accidental Drug Intoxication

Hell’s Kitchen chef Paulie Giganti was found dead in his home in Philadelphia on Thursday, Philly.com reports.

James Garrow, a spokesperson for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, told the website that Giganti, 36, passed away from accidental drug intoxication.

“It is an accidental death by drug intoxication,” Garrow said. According to the website, Garrow told them that the “office does not release the type of drug involved or whether it was a prescription drug.”

The executive chef, who was originally from Brooklyn, New York, formerly worked at Birra restaurant in Philadelphia and competed on season 16 of the Fox reality competition.

According to the Fox series’ website, Giganti’s signature dish was “biscotti-encrusted scallops over a crispy polenta with a basil curry cream sauce.”

“I never went to school for cooking. I was going to be an engineer. I just wanted to see how I stacked up against other guys, like ‘school-y’ guys and other people,” he told MyTakeonTV.com. “I was basically doing it as a measuring stick on myself. I didn’t care about any preconceived fears and notions. I just wanted to see how I could cook against other trained chefs.”

“I’ll look back on things with a smile. The whole experience was a good life experience,” he told the website about his time on the show. “I was happy to do it, and it was cool.”

Fox had no comment.

Jill Duggar Dillard and Her Husband Derick ‘Really Love Being Parents’ — But Admit They’re ‘Far From Mastering’ It

Jill (Duggar) Dillard and her husband, Derick Dillard, are loving being parents, but they admittedly don’t have it all figured out!

In a Counting On interview released Tuesday by TLC, the couple, who wed in 2014, open up about being parents to their 2-year-old toddler, Israel.

“I grew up around little kids a lot, but it’s totally different when it’s your own kid,” Jill, 25, says in the video.

“We really love being parents and I think just seeing, as a father specifically, like I enjoy seeing his development and being able to teach him new things,” Derick, 28, chimes in about the best part of watching their son grow up.

“He says ‘thank you’ now and he’s practicing his manners a lot more now,” Jill reveals.

But while their little boy is learning to say “no thank you” and “I love you,” he’s also mastered manipulation.

“We know that human nature is still there because he’s very manipulative,” says Derick. “He’ll say, ‘I love you, papi,’ like if he’s really trying to get something to butter you up right before he asks for something.”

With a second child on the way — their baby boy is due in July — the parents have learned a thing or two about parenting their first son, but they don’t think they’re in a position to be dishing out advice.

“We only have one kid. I think my mom’s the only one who can,” Jill says in reference to Michelle Duggar, who is a parent of 19 children.

“Recently, we’ve been gaining more from others’ parenting advice because we’re relatively new parents,” says Derick.

“You learn things as you go along,” Jill admits. “We’re far from mastering any skill of parenting, but we do pick up on little tips here and there from Derick’s mom, my mom. We’re always asking questions of other people.”

In a blog post on the Dillard family blog on Tuesday, Jill opened up about her second pregnancy and her family’s life in Central America — and hinted at what their little boy might be called.

“The pregnancy is going well thus far, as we make it into the home stretch now,” Jill wrote in the blog post.

“Little ‘Samuelito’ (as the locals call him) sometimes wakes mommy up at night now with his active kicking,” she wrote, hinting that her son’s name may be Samuel. “We look forward to returning home soon to prepare for the birth (before we can’t fly anymore!).”

Billy Bush Is ‘Trying to Get Back on TV’ — Watch Him Sing About It in His Grease-Inspired Post!

Billy Bush is ready to return to TV!

The former Today show host posted a video to Instagram on Tuesday of himself getting a haircut — and showcasing his vocal chords.

Inspired by the tunes of Grease‘s “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” Bush sang about his hope to get back to working on television.

“Look at me, I’m Billy B., trying to get back on TV,” he sings in the social media video while his hairstylist snips away at his brown locks.

“My hair’s long and flat, and it makes me look fat, and I can’t be,” Bush, 45, sings as he rolls his eyes upward. “I’m Billy B.”

“Time for a haircut with my beloved @tommy_cyr,” he captioned the home video of himself and hairstylist Tommy Cyr.

This past October, Bush parted ways with the Today show in the wake of the Oct. 7 leak of a 2005 tape in which then-Access Hollywood host Bush and Donald Trump can be heard making lewd and graphic comments about Nancy O’Dell and Arianne Zucker while filming a segment for the entertainment program.

The same day the tape was released, Bush issued a public apology: “Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed,” he said. “It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago — I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry.”

Two days later, he was suspended indefinitely from NBC talk show pending review. Bush faced serious backlash for the incident, and one insider previously told PEOPLE the prevailing attitude at Today was that they wanted Bush out.

Bush garnered some big-name supporters amid the controversy, including his former Access Hollywood co-host Kit Hoover, who got emotional on air defending her friend a few days after the leak.

“Those tapes were a decade ago and it was seven minutes of someone’s life, and all I can tell you is what I know and the person that I sat next to for the last six years, and that person for me is a totally different person,” said Hoover, adding, “The Billy that I know and a lot of people would say has the biggest heart of anybody and he is a good person.”

Find Out What Jill Duggar Dillard’s Pals Are Calling Baby No. 2

Jill (Duggar) Dillard is entering the “home stretch” of her pregnancy!

The 25-year-old Counting On star, who is due in July with her second child — a son — opened up about her pregnancy and her family’s life in Central America in a post on the Dillard family blog on Tuesday.

“The pregnancy is going well thus far, as we make it into the home stretch now,” Jill wrote in the blog post.

And did she reveal what her baby boy will be called when he arrives this summer?

“Little ‘Samuelito’ (as the locals call him) sometimes wakes mommy up at night now with his active kicking,” she wrote, hinting that her son’s name may be Samuel.

“We look forward to returning home soon to prepare for the birth (before we can’t fly anymore!),” Jill continued.

On Feb. 16, Jill and her husband Derick — along with their 2-year-old son, Israel — said goodbye to life in Arkansas and returned to Central America, where they are serving as missionaries.

Since returning to Central America, the family has been traveling and working alongside locals. In a previous blog post, Jill said that Israel “easily makes lots of friends” and is enjoying the fresh produce — including avocados, mangos, bananas and jocotes — that the locals give to their family.

“Israel loves it and so do we!” Jill wrote. “Last week, we were able to host the children from church in our home for children’s church and snacks. We also enjoyed meeting new friends at the playground in town while Papi (Derick) played basketball with some of the guys. We ended the evening with a yummy pupusa dinner at home.”

Though the family is currently living life abroad, they plan to return to the United States for the birth of their second child. “We will come back for the birth of the baby,” Jill told PEOPLE in a previous issue.

Simone Biles Says She’s Felt ‘Overwhelmed’ with DWTS — but She’s ‘Finding Her Voice’ (‘Just Like Moana Did’)

Simone Biles connected with her Dancing with the Stars Disney week performance in a very personal way.

On Monday’s week five episode, the U.S. Olympic gymnast performed a beautiful contemporary number with pro partner Sasha Farber. But mastering the dance — and earning the high score of 38/40 from judges — was a process that she had to personally go through.

In a video package from the past week of rehearsal, cameras captured the tension and stress that both Biles and Farber had to overcome together.

“There’s no dedication. Like, it looks like you’re angry,” Farber told Biles her during rehearsals.

“Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with Sasha pushing me,” Biles admitted. “I’ve just be so shut off and I don’t really voice my opinion very well.”

“Ever since the Olympics, I haven’t had a break,” said 20-year-old Biles.

“Why don’t you ask me for a break?” Farber, 33, questioned.

“Because I’m scared,” she told him in the video package. “Sometimes I feel like in practice, you get super excited and and I just like — slow down.”

But that was a learning moment for the celebrity-pro pair, who rehearsed throughout the past week to master the contemporary number to the tunes of Moana‘s “How Far I’ll Go,” which was sung live on the show by Auli’i Cravalho, who voiced the character.

“I think Simone is finding her voice. She’s standing on her own two feet, just like Moana did,” Farber explained.

Added Biles: “I’ve matured a lot since week one. I think it’s a work in progress, but it’s a start.”

Channeling Moana from the Disney animated film on Monday night, Biles donned an orange two-piece costume for the performance.

“What a great routine. Sasha, it was a smasha,” said judge Len Goodman about the dance. “It absolutely floated my boat.”

Julianne Hough added: “To me, that was well done to Moana, well done to Simone.”

Carrie Ann Inaba also continued with the positive praises: “Such a great way to end Disney night with all of this uplifting. … It was such a high-energy, beautiful, powerful, yet poetic dance. You were fantastic, Simone.”

Erika Girardi Says She Was ‘Broken Down’ Ahead of Her ‘Breakthrough’ — and Final — DWTS Performance

Erika Girardi gave it her all on Monday’s Dancing with the Stars Disney week — but she said she didn’t have a choice in doing so.

Entering week five, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was feeling discouraged following her week four performance.

“I’ve just never really felt that disconnected from an audience. I’ve never really felt this way ever,” Girardi told pro partner Gleb Savchenko during rehearsals.

“I think I should be performing better than I am. I think I’m capable of that. Maybe I’m just holding back. Doesn’t feel good,” she added.

During rehearsals, Girardi didn’t hold back and broke down in tears in the arms of Savchenko.

“Erika’s very frustrated with herself,” he explained to cameras. “We definitely need to do something different.”

For their week five performance, the couple chose the song “Unforgettable.”

“This is one of my favorite songs and one of my husband’s favorite songs and I remember driving late at night listening to this and him singing it to me,” she recalled. “The fact that I love this song and I enjoy dancing to it, you know, could be just what the doctor ordered as far as working through and being vulnerable in front of everyone. … It’s a pretty song.”

Savchenko added: “I believe in Erika. I think if she opens up and she trusts herself, she can really do a great performance.”

And Girardi was right. After performing her beautiful Viennese Waltz on Monday, the couple earned a solid 32/40 for their number — and rave reviews from the judges.

“It was an honest performance my darling,” said Bruno Tonioli.

“I saw you just open up,” added Carrie Ann Inaba. “Forget princesses — you were a queen.”

Said Len Goodman: “I loved the routine. … It was terrific. Well done.”

Added Julianne Hough: “I know it must be really hard to hear that you’re in jeopardy and then get out here and dance and so for you to come out here and give everything that you had, we felt that. … Your connection tonight was outstanding. It was beautiful.”

Speaking with host Erin Andrews after the performance, Girardi said she “had no choice” in her breakthrough dance.

“I was broken down and just had to pull it out. There it is,” she told her. “It feels wonderful. It’s very scary, obviously, it’s a scary moment.”

Unfortunately, Girardi’s week five dance was her last. After being announced as one of the two remaining couples in jeopardy — alongside Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd — the RHOBH star was sent home.

“It was incredible. I mean, I did have a breakthrough. I’ve had a wonderful time. Thank you all so much,” Girardi told Andrews and Tom Bergeron. “It was an incredible experience.”
