‘Dancing With the Stars’ has already rolled out on the East Coast, so if you are trying to avoid spoilers you should not click here for a live blog of the show — especially if you don’t want to know the scores before watching the dances.

Until showtime here on the West Coast, we will catch up on some ‘DWTS’ housekeeping.

First, Jennifer Grey has told People she will not do the lift that she and Patrick Swayze made famous in ‘Dirty Dancing.’

‘Everyone should not expect that,’ said the actress, 50, who had three neck surgeries a year ago. We doubt anyone would put Baby in a corner tonight for obeying doctor’s orders.


Kyle Massey was going into the performance show with an endorsement from Brandy, who was voted off last week.

Meanwhile, on the home-grown terror front, Bristol Palin was indeed the implied target of a threatening letter containing white powder that was found Friday in the CBS Studios mailroom. Los Angeles police, firefighters, hazmat officers and the FBI responded to the call, according to L.A. Now, and a section of the lot was evacuated.

The white substance was determined to be talcum powder — but the Feds don’t think much of the baby powder defense.
