The glitterverse lost a little of its glossy sheen in the ballroom on Tuesday night. We said goodbye to not one, but two champions in this, the dreaded double elimination of the “Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars” season. The two couples with the lowest combined total of judges' scores and viewer votes were Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya, and Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower.

With a clientele of Hollywood celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Aniston and Alicia Silverstone, Dawn DaLuise was well-known as a skin-care guru to the stars. The 55-year-old former model ran a West Hollywood “skin refinery” that used electrical muscle stimulation instead of the typical steam-and-cream facial. Vogue and InStyle magazines have featured her and she was the go-to beauty expert for national publications. So last year, when esthetician Gabriel Suarez moved in a couple doors down and started offering facials and male body waxing, the competition created tension.
