'Dancing with the Stars' week 6: Kendra called 'stripper' by Bruno, Romeo gets his first 10

BY Joyce Chen

Kendra Wilkinson shaked what her mama gave her during 'guilty pleasures night' on 'DTWS.' 

Not many things are more unnecessarily indulgent than ballroom dancing, skimpy costumes and ... Hanson, and Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars" managed to cram all three elements into one energetic show.
Hot on the heels of "America night," "guilty pleasure night" on "Dancing" was bound to test the boundaries of the show's cheesiness, and sure enough, the celebrities delivered.
Especially, former Playmate Kendra Wilkinson.
The sexy reality star showed off a lot more than her dancing skills as she shimmied in a yellow mini -- and it didn't go unnoticed.
Judge Bruno Tonioli quipped: "Ladies and gentleman, 'Dancing With the Stars' Presents: Revenge of the Stripper, Part 1!"
Then he threw out a dollar bill and said, "Let's do it now, let's get it over with!"
Even birthday boy Len Goodman took notice, "The more you shake, the more I palpitate," the usually grumpy judge grinned. "THAT was one of MY guilty pleasures."
Frontrunners Chelsea Kane and Romeo held their own this week, both earning a coveted 10 from Carrie Ann and 9's from both Len and Bruno with their guilty pleasure dances.
Romeo and Chelsi Hightower earned their first '10' with an elegant waltz.

Romeo tried to live up to his romantic name in a waltz to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," ending the graceful routine by passionately kissing partner Chelsie Hightower.
Theatrics or genuine breakthrough? The Romeo who extended his limbs with such grace this week was a far cry from the reluctant actor at the beginning of the season, but hey, maybe the baller's finding his own on the dance floor.
Chelsea, meanwhile, got downright sunny with a fun quickstep to Katrina and the Waves' "Walking On Sunshine" in a yellow dress and nerdy frames.
"I'm getting a suntan from you!" judge Bruno exclaimed afterward. "You have so much zest. Splendid."
"Sometimes magic happens twice," Carrie Ann teased before later awarding the couple a solid 10, the second of the night.
As part of the "guilty pleasure" night, host Tom Bergeron showed a clip of a younger Bruno prancing about as a backup dancer for Elton John.
"Isn't that a shame about gravity?" the judge remarked.
Not as much of a shame as the barely there speedos he donned in the video, truth be told.
