DWTS Pros and Celebs at the Dizzy Feet Foundation Benefit

Dizzy Feet Foundation is:

Dizzy Feet Foundation was founded in 2009 by producer Nigel Lythgoe, director Adam Shankman, “Dancing with the Stars” judge Carrie Ann Inaba and actress Katie Holmes to help underprivileged young people realize their dream of becoming professional dancers and to support, improve, and increase access to dance education in the Unites States.

They had a huge benefit tonight at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood. From DWTS, Mark, Derek, Cheryl, Jonathan, Anna T., Lacey, Gilles, Kristi Y., Lance Bass and Ballas Hough Band all performed, along with many people from So You Think You Can Dance. Socialite Life has quite a few pictures, a few of which I’ve posted below. Please visit their site for more pictures – I did NOT post them all here. I’ve posted LOTS of pictures of Derek and Cheryl dancing together on PureDerekHough.

Lots more pictures at the Wall Street Journal.

The Local ABC Affiliate covered the event tonight:

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars 2010, Season 10 – the Worst Idea of ALL

Of course, I say that knowing full well that it could get worse than this. :-) I also say this knowing this one is hopefully unlikely. I read another article that I can’t find right now that basically laughed this idea off – off the record. But you just never know. Anyway, I’m sure many of you have seen this one – let me know what you think of it. ;-) From the New York Daily News:

Levi Johnston would ‘say yes’ to joining ‘Dancing with the Stars': ‘I could do just about anything’

Don’t worry ladies, Levi Johnston isn’t ready to bow out of the spotlight just yet.

The 19-year-old baby daddy said he would consider a stint on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

After a rather anti-climatic not-completely-nude pictorial in “Playgirl” magazine, the father to Bristol Palin’s son, Tripp, said he’d consider being part of the celebrity dancing series, which has featured celebs like Emmitt Smith, Joey Fatone and Toni Braxton.

While watching the Tuesday finale with “Entertainment Tonight,” Johnston said, “I think if my phone were to ring right now, I would probably say yes.”

ETA: Found it!! Thanks to the LA Times – love the response. :-)

Johnston, the former fiance of Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol and father of her baby, and Jones claimed that he’s been invited to compete on both ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars” and CBS’ “Survivor.”

We made a few calls and learned that Johnston was not telling the truth. We know this is hard to believe, but our sources are reliable. This is what they said: “Officially, we never comment about casting,” said an ABC representative.

Unofficially, we say, ”Ha! Ha! Ha!'”

A CBS spokeswoman did her own checking and replied, “This is completely false. Completely.”
