DWTS Season 12 – Tom Bergeron Dishes On “Classical Night”, The Judges Bickering, and More

Popwatch has a great new audio interview up with our wacky host (and Heidi’s want-to-be husband, lol) Tom Bergeron. Tom thought people would be clicking their remotes to something else on “Classical” night fearing they were pushing the limits too much. To his surprise, Monday night ended up being one of the top viewed 4th shows for Dancing With The Stars. Get his bird’s eye feel on the whole night for what it felt like and more at Popwatch in an audio link.

I have to say Classical night was one of my most favorite nights of all the shows I have seen. How about you? I hope they will do it again and please bring back David Garrett. :D

Pure DWTS 12 – More on Karina Smirnoff’s Playboy Shoot

Above is a take from Karina’s Playboy shoot from the Daily Mail today. You can also view the cover at the link if interested. There are a few more pictures of the shoot (the important parts are covered) an Insider preview >>>>>HERE (I would embed this, but, the source won’t allow it). The quote below is from the Playboy interview.

As for why she [Karina] decided to pose nude, she says, “As a dancer I’ve always embraced my body. I’m thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness.”

If interested, watch ET tonight as they plan to show more of Karina and the shoot.

In my opinion, this shoot has been tastefully and fashionably done. I just wished they would have arranged it so this issue didn’t come out until this Season was over. Hopefully, this won’t have any effects on the voting and voters will keep Dancing With The Stars and what a person does in their private or business life separate because I think Karina and Ralph are so talented and the tops this year. Be disgusted all you like with this shoot and Karina’s desire to do it, but, please don’t take it out on Ralph, the work he’s putting in, and his Dancing With The Stars experience.

See our earlier posting on Karina and this shoot here.

DWTS 12 – Randall Christensen “Behind The Seams” Of Week 4

Stylist reports on Randall Christensen’s thoughts on Kirstie’s shoe mishap and how she handled it with “expected grace”. She didn’t skip a beat. He also dishes about how he was inspired to do this week’s costumes. More below in a take from the link. I love what he says about Kirstie and how she sketched her necklace-style neckline.

Kendra Wilkinson: Christensen’s team bedazzled a classic pinstripe fabric to execute Wilkinson’s mafia princess fantasy look. “Kendra had worn a fun gangster costume for Halloween, which was the inspiration for her costume this week,” he says. “The fabric was the perfect template to encrust with crystals.”

Kirstie Alley: The actress sketched the turquoise, necklace-style neckline of her shimmering lilac waltz frock on her own neck with lip liner and sent Christensen a photo. “We were actually planning something different, but it turned out to be such a fun collaboration,” he says. Alley also continues to request more fitted looks as dancing tones her frame. “Her waist is looking fantastic,” Christensen says.

Chelsea Kane: The Disney Star’s “Harry Potter”-inspired wizard princess look was among Christensen’s most ambitious designs of the week. Pewter embroidered netting was used to create the bodice while several kinds of fabric were layered to create the textured ruffles of her skirt for a performance that topped the leader board.

Petra Nemcova: The supermodel wore a red and black two-piece charmeuse number created for a classic Paso Doble. “We were going for an understated Carmen look,” Christensen explains. Red and gold stones along the waist and hematite stones on her corset added subtle sparkle. “I really thought the off-the-shoulder ruffles on her top were sexy,” he says.

The guys: Christensen’s favorite male celebrity costume this week was wrestler Chris Jericho’s copper lamé Paso Doble look. “The classic opera jacket in that fabric was the bomb,” he says.

Speaking of costumes and everything that goes into them, be sure to read about the Dancing With The Stars jewelry and take part in our new Yellow Swarovski Crystal Hoops Contest in you haven’t done so yet >>>>>HERE . The Hoops are gorgeous and just think, they could become yours. :)

So, which costumes were your favorites this week? I loved them all, but, I especially loved Petra and Anna’s costumes this time. They were breathtaking to say the least!
