ABC Interview Videos

Courtesy of  TV Grapevine.  These are the same videos (with bio page)  I uploaded the other day for Macy et al, but different couples. I believe they are in the process of uploading all of them. I’ve included a few, below. The TV Grapevine site is kinda hard to figure out (for me anyway) so this link takes you to Natalie, but the others are listed on the left hand side. This LINK takes you to the list of celebs they have bios for so far – which doesn’t seem to match the video list, even though the videos are also embedded there. Make sense? Yeah, me either. :-)

ETA: I almost forgot to blow my own horn. :-) I was correct – the male pros are doing a pro dance on Monday night, the female pros a pro dance on Tuesday night – the reverse of when they dance with their partners. This is per Louis Van Amstel.  Should be very interesting. ;-)

Natalie and Alec

Mark And Lacey

Ashley and Edyta

Maybe it’s just me, but Ashley and Natalie seem kinda…boring? Maybe it’s Alec and Edyta? I dunno something seems strange there. Or maybe everyone suffers in comparison to Mark Dacascos and Lacey. :-)

September 20, 2009 I Written By

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Seattle Times on DWTS Season 9

I point out this article in The Seattle Times in particular because I found what they had to say about the teams rather amusing. :-)   Here are a few excerpts:

Gather ’round, fellow “Dancing with the Stars” fans, and let us mourn: Gilles Marini is no longer on the show, and none of the new contestants are slinky Frenchmen.

Regardless, everyone’s favorite guilty-pleasure, ballroom-dancing-with-the-C-list reality show is back, to steal our Monday nights and remind us of some of the great mysteries of life: namely, sequined pants, orange spray-tans and Samantha Harris.

 

Aaron Carter

Who? 21-year-old pop singer, Backstreet Boy relative (brother to Nick Carter) and former reality-show participant (“House of Carters”).

Any hope? Sure; pop singers generally know how to move.

Partner: The fabulously named Karina Smirnoff, in her seventh season.

 

Ashley Hamilton

Who? Actor/musician, but better known for being George Hamilton’s son and Shannen Doherty’s momentary husband.

Any hope? Let’s hope he does better than his famously tan father did on the show (in Season 2).

Partner: The marvelously slinky and frequently near-naked Edyta Sliwinska.

My personal favorite – ;-)

Joanna Krupa

Who? Model, best known for one of those “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” PETA campaigns.

Any hope? Um, who?

Partner: Hold the phone — she’s dancing with the marvelous Derek Hough.
