Snooki Wants More Money To Do Dancing With The Stars?

Ok, so this girl is seriously getting on my every nerve!!! One minute Snooki is doing the show and the next she or someone in her camp are saying she’s not dancing. Now, Hollywood Life is reporting that Snooki is holding out for more MONEY!!! Come on! If true, why should Dancing With The Stars pay her more money? She should be lucky she’s getting any money at all or the “attention”.

If this rumor comes true, this will be like “Bristol Palin” all over again for me. I will still watch the show. I love it and one person will never chase me off. But, come on!!

This is a NIGHTMARE! *CRIES* 8O

Thanks for letting me rant! lol Here is more from Hollywood Life;

“They are still trying to make the deal with Snooki,” our source dishes. “She was verbally in, but has yet to sign anything. She has been very concerned with the schedule and what she will be paid.”

With the season 13 premiere of DWTS just around the corner on Sept. 19, ABC is in a rush to finalize the cast as soon as possible. After all, they have to start rehearsing, plus, the cast is being announced Aug. 29 during the Bachelor Pad.

Adds our insider, “The producers are confident that she will still join the show, but if she continues to hold out, they have people that will fill her spot. They always overcast the show.”

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 .

Dance of the Day… Let’s watch the One Hit Wonder Pros…

That’s not really a good way to describe them…. But, I had the most difficult weekend imaginable, a most horrid nightmare…. But, I know that there are worse nightmares out there, but this one is pretty difficult to get through right now for me…. And that is all about that.

Throughout the seasons that I’ve watched DWTS (beginning season 3), there are some pros that I wanted to see more, and have been disappointed that they haven’t returned, beyond one season. Since I didn’t watch the first two seasons, I can’t focus on any of those pros AT THIS TIME!

We start in Season 7, with INNA BREYER!! She was a brand new pro that season, and paired with Ted McGinley, if I remember, the same season that we met Lacey. She was on the show for only one week, but had 2 performance shows. That was the season that they all performed on Night One, and then slowly announced who was safe…. They had everyone out before each number, and announced one by one, the pair who would be dancing next…. Creating a LOT of drama and unnecessary pressure (in my mind, anyway) on all of the remaining pairs. The pair left standing at the end went home without dancing a second time.

Here’s her second dance with Ted, they danced the Mambo to “Mambo Gozon” by Tito Puente. They scored a 6,6,7 for 19 points. And, they did not return for week 2, which was very disappointing for me, because I wouid STILL love to see more of Inna, I think she did quite well with Ted. I did like her more than Lacey.

Next…. Remember Fabian Sanchez??? He was on for only Season 6, with Marlee Matlin. I loved this pair, and I thought that each week they remained, they were a triumph! It seems that Fabian is what I think a professional on the show should be…. He was encouraging, he was thoughtful of his partner, he had wonderful choreography…. And so much more. I’ve been disappointed that he didn’t return after Season 6. I still think that he embodies what this show has always been about….He was given a partner who had a big handicap on the show, since she is the only one to compete, that’s not been able to hear the music…. He was able to teach her the musicality, and the dance, without hearing. Quite an accomplishment, in my book.

I chose to show you Season 6, Week 4, with Marlee Matlin and Fabian Sanchez, they danced the Viennese Waltz to “She’s Always a Woman” by Billy Joel…. Solely because I sat here at my computer and cried while watching again. They scored an 8,8,8 for 24 points.

Last up for today, Damian Whitewood…. Damian first came to our attention in Season 10, paired with Pamela Anderson…. I will admit right now, that Pamela and Damian were not my favorite pair of the season, but they did impress me,,,, I loved how well that Pamela was able to totally embody each and every character of each and every dance that they did on the show….. To me, she will stand out as one of the best character dancers…. Even if she didn’t get the technique, no one could ever fault her character…. And obviously, they loved dancing with each other, because they paired up for another dance series, and our wonderful friend Carlos brought it to our attention….. They performed on a similar series from Argentina (and Wiki says it’s NOT related to DWTS or SCD at all, but will defer to our wonderful Carlos for the last word on this…) called Bailando por un Sueño

Maybe Carlos could find a video that he likes from Pamela and Damian, from this series, and we can add it? And… could we learn more about it?

I chose the Argentine Tango for Pamela and Damian… Here is Season 10, Week 6… Pamela Anderson and Damian Whitewood, dancing to “Enjoy the Silence” by Tanghetto. They gota 7,7,8 for 22 points, plus 8 points from the swing dance marathon, for a grand total of 30 points for that week.

So… That’s it for now!!!! Is there someone else you would love to reminisce about? Care to share? Which pros that we haven’t seen in a while would you like to remember and dream about in an upcoming post? Is there a dance style you’d love to see more of, and which would you like to see again?

Dancing With The Stars Tony Dovolani Albania Documentary, Ballroom on Broadway, And More!!

Tony Dovolani has had a busy summer like the other dancers. As most of you know, he’s been helping Maks to open their new Dance With Me L.A studio as well as helping with the others. This past week, Tony travelled to Albania and Kosova to help film a new documentary on on his homeland’s culture and to promote tourism with Eliza Dushku who recently became an honorary citizen. According to former Dancing With The Stars contestant and Eliza’s boyfriend Rick Fox they all met up in Prishtine for a Dancing With The Stars meet up and Eliza got a dancing lesson from Tony. Here is a picture from Tony’s facebook of he and some of his friends at a Pub in Prishtine. Tony is all smiles.

Stay tuned. This Sunday Tony and Maks will be hosting a new “Dance With Me Soho” production at the Manhattan Center called “Ballroom on Broadway.” Their students will be performing as well as Val Chmerkovskiy (Maks’ brother) and Daria Chesnokova. For more information, go here.

A special thanks for @Marleneb4 and @Lannatexasgal at twitter for their news tips on Tony in Albania!! And thanks to Heidi too for her help with this post!xx
