Kim Kardashian may be dealing an onslaught of publicity for announcing her divorce on Monday, but her brother Rob wasn't about to let his family drama get him down! The youngest Kardashian all about business as he took the stage on Dancing with the Stars that night.
After Rob and partner Cheryl Burke performed a costumed tango to The Addams Family theme song, they received their highest praise yet from the judges. Sister Kim was notably absent, but oldest sis Kourtney Kardashian (dressed like a Native American) cheered from the audience with boyfriend Scott Disick and their son, Mason.
"Well done! I tell you what, you did a great job," said judge Len Goodman. And Carrie Ann Inaba added that it was Rob's "best dance so far."
Watch Rob and Cheryl's seventh dance below!
Other highlights include:
The mood of the Halloween show was drama-free and playful -- a big change from last week's episode, when Maksim Chmerkovskiy attacked the judges after his dance with Hope Solo.
But this week, Maks and Hope managed to get their usual triple-8, for their samba to "Werewolves in London" featuring Maks in a sexy Wolfman getup. The dance was judged without any overly critical comments.
"The samba can be the celebrity graveyard, because it is such a demanding dance, but I must say, you coped well with a very difficult dance," said Goodman, who incited Maks' anger last week.
Nancy Grace and Tristan MacManus received a 21, their lowest score in a few weeks, for their jive to "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." Inaba said, "Last week was a good day, this wee was not so good."
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough managed to perform the highest-scored dance of the night, despite the fact that Lake had a fairly serious rib injruy. Later they and J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff were each allowed to "captain" their own team for the group dance -- the first one to be scored.
Once again, Lake and Hough (who picked Kardashian and Burke and Chmerkovskiy and Solo as their teammates) proved victorious with their Team Paso Doble dance, which garnered a 26 -- while their rivals' (led by Martinez and Smirnoff) earned a 23. The score disparity caused some surprising changes to the leader board. Surprisingly, Martinez is now in the bottom three!
Leader Board Results, Week 7:
Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: 53 (27 + 26 for group dance)
Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: 51 (25 + 26 for group)
Hope Solo & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 50 (24 + 26 for group)
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: 48 (25 + 23 for group)
David Arquette & Kym Johnson: 47 (24 + 23 for group)
Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: 44 (21 + 23 for group)
