It's the home stretch on this season of Dancing with the Stars, and while not a lot of fans are surprised by the final three couples, it's still an exciting finale to watch: Psychic Meghan predicts it's a Nicole-Evan showdown with the Olympian eventually winning. What do you think?

Chad Ochocinco's 'Dancing with the Stars' Season in Review

In this Dancing with the Stars roundup: Erin and Maks become less discreet with their supposed romance, Eliza Dushku gives Vienna a stern warning, and guess who Derek Hough is eying for his partner next season?

But first: updates from Twitterland:


Sneaking a kiss. The boys of the Ballas Hough Band just marked their birthdays with a joint bash Monday night, but it wasn't Mark Ballas or Derek Hough who got people's attention -- RadarOnline.com reports that finalists Erin Andrews and Maksim Chmerkovskiy sneaked a kiss in the VIP section when (they thought) no one was looking! Derek turns 25; Mark, 24.

Derek and Betty? Speaking of birthdays, Derek had two wishes for his birthday: make it to the finals (got that already) and get Betty White to be his partner next season!

Jump wasn't a big deal. Writing on his TV Guide blog, Maks said the much-ballyhooed jump-to-Maks-face last week wasn't "as big of a deal as they showed." In yet another Maks zinger, he said that they're the only couple remaining who "actually have fun." Find out why here.

She knew, he's at peace. Cheryl Burke admitted to People that she "kind of knew" that they were heading home Tuesday night. "Our scores were so much lower, so we felt it was going to happen," she said. Chad Ochocinco, for his part, said he's "at peace" with what happened.

Vienna-Eliza Catfight? Don't count on it. In a joke that few people apparently got, Eliza Dushku (Faith on Buffy) tweeted a screen grab showing DWTS contestant Jake Pavelka's Vienna eying her boyfriend Rick Fox. Said photo came with a stern, if it wasn't absurd, warning: "Vienna, I will CUT you. Keep yo' eyes on yo' own meat!"

DWTS finalists on Larry King Live. Finally, the final three couples will be appearing on CNN's Larry King Live this Friday. Judges Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba are also on board in addition to hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke.
