However, things just didn't work out, and now is

As each week passes, we get closer and closer to the Dancing With The Stars finale which means two things: the stars have to bring it harder, and we had to say goodbye to another couple last night!
On Monday night, the celebs heated the dance floor up with their Salsa and Cha Cha routines for DWTS' Latin Night as Pitbull joined the judges as a guest — and boy was it HOT!
We're used to Laurie Hernandez and Valentin Chmerkovskiy generally turning in SPECTACULAR performances, but this week, the BEST — and sexiest — went to Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko! Though it sure didn't hurt that the couple danced to Selena Gomez's Hands To Myself! LOLz!
Of course, the rest of the pack did pretty well too including Calvin Johnson Jr. and Lindsay Arnold, and even Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke did okay!
Unfortunately, Amber Rose and Maksim Chmerkovskiy had a bit of an off night and were sent packing! Oh no! But the gracious pair had nothing but great words for each other afterwards!
Ch-ch-check out all the incredible the DWTS highlights (below) as well as Amber and Maksim's adorable messages:
Oh, Ryan… no.
For what was supposed to be a feature which painted Ryan Lochte in a favorable light, a New York Magazine piece unfortunately revealed that the Olympian gets Jewish people and Canadians confused. Wait… what??
During a shopping excursion with one of the magazine's journalists, the swimmer's publicist brought up how she decided to attend the trip to the El Lay based shopping center, named The Grove, because work was slow due to Yom Kippur. That's when the writer revealed Lochte asked:
It's the battle of the networks!
That's because it was reported on Thursday that ABC is already looking to cast Billy Bush on their tentpole reality TV show once he's officially fired from NBC!
The defamed TODAY host has been on suspension from the daytime talk show ever since his and Donald Trump's "Grab them by the p*ssy" tape leaked last Friday — but he may just find new life on DWTS as Season 24's version of Ryan Lochte!
In fact, a source close to production tells Page Six that the House of Mouse is looking to "establish a relationship," with the former Peacock network talent, saying:
It's a hard job, but someone's gotta put up with Ryan Lochte! LOLz!
As you know, the Olympic gold medalist popped the question to Kayla Rae Reid over the weekend during a romantic helicopter tour of El Lay — and now, the 32-year-old is opening up about how he knew the model was "the one" after just nine months of dating.
"This is what I've been wanting my entire life: to have a family of my own and to find that right one. I finally found her and I'm just so excited!"
The little gymnast and Val apparently had a bit of dance hangover this week as the couple didn't quite live up to their hype from their last performance as they danced the paso to Katy Perry's Rise to earn a 25. Whomp.
The new leader this week ended up being James Hinchcliffe and his dancing partner Sharna Burgess as they tangoed their way to a 29! Don't worry, there were PLENTY of other incredible performances like Amber Rose and Maksim Chmerkovskiy's samba or Ryan Lochte and Cheryl Burke trying to hang on with their contemporary dance!
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing highlights (below) and let us know who you're rooting for this season!
Who knew he had it in him! Ha!
A rep of the controversial Olympic gold medalist told E! News the 32-year-old planned out an entire romantic evening for Kayla as they took a private helicopter tour over El Lay — seeing everything from Burbank, Downtown, and Malibu Canyon. Awwz!
We're hearing the Dancing With The Stars contestant asked the big question during a 30 minute break as the couple was safely on the ground, and the 25-year-old agreed to be his wife as the sun set over the ocean.
According to Orbic Air, the athlete bought the the Mountain Top Landing package, which is $349 per person and included champagne, strawberries, cheesecake, and of course, breathtaking views.
Good on ya, Ryan!

Things are certainly getting better for Ryan Lochte!
On Sunday, the Olympian took to Instagram to reveal that he is now engaged to his girlfriend Kayla Rae Reid. How exciting!
