In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Derek says things are going good with Ricki Lake and their dancing rehearsals despite the ambulance visits, etc. He jokes, but, Ricki says she really wasn’t that injured when she fell last week. She shows the camera her “rainbow” bruise. Derek says it will happen again through out the competition. Getting bruises are a part of it all. But, it’s “all good and “fun and games”. Derek also discusses his break from the show last Season and how much he missed it and teaching. He also addresses the Dirty Dancing rumors where he will play the lead. He says he’s flattered, but, that’s just what they are “rumors and talk” (I hope that “talk” will change. I think he’d perfect in the role!). All this and more below. I love how he calls Ricki “Lake” at twitter too.
Oh, and one more thing. I ran onto this younger pic of Derek last night at his Facebook that I thought some of you might enjoy. K-Swiss tennis shoes anyone?
ADDING: Access Hollywood has another video up now with Derek! He talks of Ricki and how excited he is to be back on the show. Be sure to see it >>>>HERE!
