This week, Dancing With the Stars took a journey through time for Eras week! Each couple performed a dance that complemented an era from the roaring 20's all the way to the future (don't worry, no twerking!).

As we reported back in June, U.S. Olympic soccer star Hope Solo was charged with domestic violence after she allegedly assaulted her half-sister and nephew while intoxicated at her home in Seattle, WA.
