Today on Marie
Andy Dick takes advantage of Marie's "Dancing With the Stars
" experience by asking her for tips. She suggests that focusing on "hip action" during the cha-cha and fainting are integral to contending for the mirror ball trophy. All kidding aside, there is a tragic, serious side to the comedian as well. Since becoming sober, Andy has mended his relationship with his three children, who can often be seen cheering him on in the audience at "DWTS." The funnyman also reveals that he had a boyhood crush on Marie. Bandmate Paris Dylan joins Andy on the couch to serenade Marie with a song the duo wrote about her.
Chef Emily Bishop

She stresses the importance of making the pizza dough one day in advance. Marie and Emily have some fun tossing the dough around! The extra-cheesy pepperoni pizza is baked to perfection.
Aviva Drescher lives up to the definition of her name, which means "spring" and "life" in Hebrew. "The Real Housewives of New York City
" star joined the cast to be a positive role model for amputees. The New York native had one of her legs amputated at the age of six following a conveyor belt accident. Aviva never let this deter her from leading a fulfilling, successful life. She earned a law degree and is now happy to be a stay-at-home mom to four lovely children. Aviva has her oldest child to thank for introducing her to her current husband. While shopping, her son started playing with a little girl in the store, who is the daughter of then-single dad Reid. When he proposed, the children also exchanged rings, asking one another if they would be brother and sister. The blended family has since welcomed two more kids. Aviva is concentrating on being an advocate for amputees and is trying to get insurance companies to cover the expense of cosmetically appealing limbs that allow recipients to have confidence in their appearance.
