DWTS 12 – Brooke Burke Dishes on Dancing With The Stars Finals And Promotes New Suave Campaign (Videos)

Brooke was interviewed on Fox and Friends this morning. She dished a little on Kirstie and how surprisingly well she’s done all Season on Dancing With The Stars. They ask her about Ralph and how he was mistreated by the judges which she conveniently blows off (are we surprised?). She also talks about the new Suave campaign which she’s helping to promote. Thanks so much to Lori for letting us know on this interview.


Hollywood Gossip also interviewed Brooke. In this new interview, she talks about how hard it is to raise four kids and how important it is to take care of yourself. She also talked about the show and how much she loves it. She says this is one of the best and “most even” casts this Season. It’s full of emotion. No one knows who is going to win. She thinks it will come down to the “Freestyle” and that they all deserve to win. More below.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Dancing With The Stars 12 – Hines Ward: “Kym is an athelete and a true Steeler”

The Fabulous Forum at the LA Times has a new interview/blog up with Hines. They ask him about when he cried after him and Kym’s dance Monday night. He was just so relieved they completed the dance and she was ok. His first thought was that “this competition wasn’t worth her future or her life.” He also called her a “Trooper” and an “athelete”. A “True Steeler” and a never-quit mentality!! And isn’t that the truth! More below and at the link.

Q: There were tears in your eyes after finishing your first dance on Monday. It has been such an emotional week for you because of Kym’s injury. Take us back to that moment right after the dance ended. What was going through your mind?
Aww, I was just happy we made it through the dance. I mean after seeing Kym get injured like she did, nothing mattered to me except her health. I thought she had broken her neck at first and it really hit me. My first thought was that this competition wasn’t worth her future or her life. So when we were able to complete the dance and seeing her go through it after what she went through was overwhelming for me. She has done so much for me and I was just so glad she was OK. I guess I lost it for a moment. She is the best and I am just glad she is OK.

Q: So Kym nearly breaks her neck and comes out dancing like nothing is wrong on Monday. Will that make it hard for any Steelers rookie to complain to you about feeling banged up this season?
Kym is a trooper. She is an athlete and a true Steeler and has the never-quit mentality. She believes in me and that we can win this competition and will push herself beyond her limits. I respect and admire her for that. She is a great coach and I owe my success in dancing so far to her. I think our team shares the same never-quit mentality and I am sure my teammates, veterans and rookies alike, appreciate Kym’s work ethic like I do.

Q: Next week is the finale. I’m sure you entered the competition with the desire to win, but, deep down, did you really expect to do as well as you have done?
No. My goal coming into it was to just not be the first one kicked off. And honestly, to be doing the types of dances I’ve been doing and to still be here in the finals speaks volumes of my coach. Kym is amazing and I owe it all to her.

Below is a cool quote from Steeler coach, Mike Tomlin from USA Today on Hines. I love this.

“Hines is one of those guys that always puts himself in position to seize those once in a lifetime moments,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told the team’s website. “Not only because he is extremely talented, but because he works so hard. That is what being the MVP of the Super Bowl is about and that’s what competing with Dancing with the Stars is about.”

DWTS Season 12, 2011 – Dancing With The Stars Down In TV Ratings for May 9-15th

Below are the TV Ratings compiled by the Nielson for the week of May 9-15th. Dancing With The Stars Monday night show took a dip last week from 1st to 3rd! The Results show fell a notch from 4th to 5th. American Idol has taken over the top spots. NCIS continues to be dominate in the ratings too. I have a feeling next week’s ratings might be worse for Dancing With The Stars with all the shanagans they are pulling? :( (Heidi’s Note: The viewers for the performance show are down a bit, but I think the viewers for the result show are actually up a bit. It’s not that DWTS is crashing, it’s that AI is getting stronger as they head into the finale, I believe.)
