Dancing With The Stars: Happy Birthday Brooke Burke!!

What a gorgeous picture Derek tweeted of he and former partner and Dancing With Stars Host, Brooke Burke! Yesterday was Brooke’s birthday. Derek tweeted that it was great seeing her at a birthday party. He said it was “Beautiful day” and he shared “Good times with good people.” According to Brooke’s twitter, 100 people attended and she was hoping to make a Caesar Salad. Her sister drove over 500 miles just to be there.

In honor of Brooke’s birthday, will any of us ever forget this performance?

Which performance is your most unforgettable by them? She and Derek sure knew how to light us up on stage when they danced together, didn’t they?! :)

Lots more Derek and Brooke at Pure Derek Hough. Don’t forget about the NEW DESIGN A T CONTEST as well currently taking place for Derek and Ricki!!

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 .

Elisabetta Canalis Talks Dancing With The Stars At The Grove And Heads Up New PETA Campaign

Elisabetta Canalis stopped by the Grove in Hollywood this past week to talk with Mario Lopez. She said the producers of Dancing With The Stars contacted her a year ago to do the show. At the time Elisabetta wasn’t available like she is now. Since that time, she’s been watching past shows and Dancing With The Stars in Italy too in preparation. They talk of the hard work that goes into doing the show and how she has blisters already. She addresses romance rumors with Val and her feelings on George Clooney as well.

Along with her gig on Dancing With The Stars, Elisabetta is also the new front woman for PETA’s new anti-fur campaign. From Access Hollywood, she said….

“I decided to go nude because I think that nudity always creates a big reaction,” Elisabetta, 32, explained in a video posted on the animal rights activist website. “That is what is required to keep people’s attention on such a brutal practice… These poor animals are electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned, and bludgeoned just for the sake of fashion.”

The brunette bombshell also urged fashion fans to steer clear of even of tiniest amount of fur.

“Don’t buy fur,” she continued. “Even a little trim – your gloves or your bag or your jackets… You must remember that animals don’t have a voice. You must be their voice. Never be afraid to speak up.”

DWTS13 Chaz Bono To Be Given Hero Award By GLSEN (Videos)

The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network are planning to give out a Hero Award at their seventh annual Respect Awards. Director Rob Reiner, his wife Michelle, and Phoenix Suns president and CEO Rick Welts (who has also spoke out recently that he’s Gay) will also be honored. The group’s goal is to stop hate, ignorance, and bullying in schools. GLSEN also gives students and educators the resources they need to make schools safe and equal no matter what their sexual orientation may be. Chaz takes a time out from rehearsing for Dancing With The Stars to talk about it with ET and how much it means to him and how he doesn’t understand the “mentality” of some people. I don’t understand it either. Rick Welts talks on it too. Take a listen and see if you don’t agree with them?

Lacey is interviewed by Dr. Drew in the video below. Also, check out Gloria Allred. She’s been actively speaking out for Chaz all this past week. She wants to have National Viewing and Dancing parties for Chaz and fair and equal rights for transgenders next week when the show starts.

I saw a tweet this morning minimizing this issue as if it’s not important as other causes out there. Well, I disagree. Stomping out hatred and ignorance is just as important as any other cause in my opinion.
