Congratulations to Brooke Burke and her long time fiance David Charvet!!! According to Life and Style, they tied the knot last night in St. Barts:
Dancing With the Stars co-host Brooke Burke and former Baywatch star David Charvet said “I do” tonight in one of the most romantic ways possible: on a boat under the stars in St. Bart’s, Life & Style can exclusively reveal.
Joined by their children, the couple, both 39, made it official after being engaged for nearly five years. “We’re just at that place, where love is deep and meaningful, and we’re feeling very settled,” Brooke confided about their relationship last year.
It does say that Jenni Rivera was invited to compete on DWTS. The only question is – the US version? Jenni is Mexican-American and has sold more than 20 million records worldwide, but I don’t know how well known she is here in the US. I also looked to see if maybe one of the international versions of DWTS is going to be running at the same time and maybe that is what she was invited to do, similar to Pam Anderson on the South American version of the show. But, I confess, I did not have a lot of luck figuring anything out and I’m rather short on time. So, I’m throwing it to our readers. Are YOU familiar with Jenni? Are any of our south american readers (and I know we have a couple) aware of another version of the show she might be doing??
Let us know your thoughts in the comments. Educate us!! :-) Here’s Jenni’s official web site if you want to take a gander – turn down the volume if you are at work. ;-)
P.S. Queen Latifah’s reps say she’s NOT going to be on DWTS, per US Magazine. I sense a tabloid war in the making: TMZ sets them up and everyone else shoots them down. This is kinda fun – maybe TMZ did get punked (or their old source just got busted). :-)
Squashing multiple internet reports, a rep for the 41-year-old tells Us Weekly exclusively that “Queen Latifah will not appear on Dancing With the Stars.”
An insider adds that “there were never any talks” between the network and the Just Wright actress, though Queen Latifah “likes the show.”
In July, several sources confirmed to Us that Jersey Shore‘s Snooki, 23, E! reality star Rob Kardashian, 24, and singer ChristinaMilian, 29, were in discussions to join the show.
Thursday night, Cheryl Burke, Peta Murgatroyd, Damian Whitewood, and Chelsie Hightower Tower attended the “Be a STAR” (“show tolerance and respect”) Anti-Bullying and WWE SummerSlam VIP Kick-Off Party Event at the Andaz Hotel in Los Angeles, Ca. They and the wrestlers were on a mission to combat bullying among kids. They wanted to send the message that bullying “is not acceptable whether physical or electronic” and isn’t that the truth! Here the four are on the Red Carpet. Peta, Damian, and Cheryl don’t say much. They give face, hair, and legs for a great cause. :) But, note how Chelsie chats it up a little on Dancing With The Stars. She mentions that she doesn’t know who her partner is on Dancing With The Stars yet, but, she will come the end of August.
Below are some pictures too from Zimbio.com of Cheryl and Chelsie;
Okay, I know I seem to be jumping around with the Dance of the Day, but that’s just how my brain works. So, things may seem out of order, or scattered, but I promise, eventually, we’ll get back to stuff we’ve started.
Soon, we’ll go back and finish our Dance of Champions, and we have many different dance styles to compare, but I thought it would be nice to try to compare some of our pros over the seasons. Plus, it kind of ties in, I think, with an idea I tried to start before, but didn’t materialize.
Let’s watch Jonathan Roberts, the sweet and caring husband to our feisty Anna Trebunskaya… The two have created some of the most touching professional dances on results shows, but he’s also been a great teacher, and friend to a variety of celebrity partners, and I wish he would return….
Jonathan was one of our original Professional dancers, on Season 1, pairing with model Rachel Hunter. I did not watch Season 1, and I haven’t found the spot on Wikipedia that is telling me what they danced when…. So I have no idea where they placed that season, but they did NOT finish last. I have found a list of his partners for each season that he was on, and resorting to whatever I can find on video site.
Rachel and Jonathan performed a TANGO in Week 3 of Season 1, to Britney Spears “Toxic.” They scored an 8,9, 9 for 26 points.
Jonathan returned to the dance floor in Season 2, partnered with Giselle Fernandez. And since i didn’t see most of this season either, I can only say I THINK she’s in journalism. They also performed the Tango in Week 3, to “Hernando’s Hideaway,” by Victor Sylvester. They got a 7, 8, 7 for 22 points. You can watch Giselle and Jonathan’s Tango HERE.
Jonathan next appeared in Season 4, with Animal Rights activist, Heather Mills, who had an artificial leg, which didn’t stop either of them. I wanted some complacency, and looked for a Tango from Heather and Jonathan, and instead, decided to show their Week 3 dance, the Jive to Marvin Gaye’s “Can I Get a Witness?” They scored a 24. You can watch their jive HERE.
Marie Osmond was partnered with Jonathan in Season 5, and together, they produced some memorable routines, my favorite is their Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy routine. Week 3 gave them the Tango, and I liked how he combined the song, her acting/comedic skills, into a terrific tango. The song was “Please Mr Brown,” by Alma Cogan, and they scored a 9, 8, 9 for 26 points.
Tennis Great, Monica Seles, and Jonathan were unfortunately eliminated in Week 2 of Season 6, but first, they performed a foxtrot in Week 1, and the Mambo in Week 2, to “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” by En Vogue. I was quite sad that they only scored a 15. No, she wasn’t the best dancer, but she had fun, and did learn a lot, and that counts more. Wish she could have stayed longer. You can see their Mambo HERE.
Again, we greatly missed Jonathan in Season 7, but he returned in Season 8 with Belinda Carlisle. I was hoping they could have stayed to dance to some Bananarama, but that wasn’t to be. They were the first eliminated, in Week 2. I chose their Waltz from Week 1 to share with you, because I think it was beautiful…. No, not technically precise, but such wonderful choreography! Their song was “What The World Needs Now,” by Dionne Warwick, and it scored a 6, 6, 5 for 17 points.
Jonathan’s last season as a teaching Professional Dancer on DWTS was Season 9, where he was partnered with Macy Gray, they were the first eliminated. In week 1, they performed the Viennese Waltz to “(You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin. Again, I loved the choreography, even if it wasn’t executed well…. They scored a 6, 4, 5 for 15 points. You can watch them Viennese Waltzing HERE.
