DWTS Season 13, Week 5 and 6 – The Cheesecake Awards

Well, Courtney and I are suffering from a bit of a mid-season “blah” – all my mind is really capable of right now is “Derek pretty…Derek pretty…” So, this version of the cheesecake is for both weeks 5 and 6, and it’s either going to be extremely bitchy or short and mean. :-) Hard to tell. It’s perception, really. :-)

Week 5

Tom Bergeron’s WTF Moment of the Night: When Brooke says “A Hush has fallen over the Ballroom” yet there is actually a pretty noticeable booing and hissing from the audience.

Heidi: Poor Tom, he just couldn’t help himself, he had to say something. :-) His response was pretty funny: “Sounds like a pretty angry ‘hush’ to me.” Geez, Brooke? Really? A hush? Maybe you meant hiss?? Here’s a piece of advice – don’t ad lib.

Courtney: Someone call tech support, stat – the Brookebot 2.0 has a glitch in its matrix. Seriously, she’s like Tickle Me Elmo these days – only says a handful of phrases, and it’s only cute once or twice before it gets terribly annoying.

The Award for Biggest WTF of the Results Show: The Choir

Heidi: Um, really?? A choir? In the gowns and everything?? And it wasn’t a little choir, there was a whole dang bunch of them. I thought for a moment I was watching the finale of American Idol. I will say, the choir stayed in sync better than the troupe dancers did. I have to say that the choir coming out (and yes, I get the Madonna connection) was the first time in a long time that I sat there going “what the f*#k are they doing?” I was momentarily stumped. Confused. Befuddled.

Courtney: Confuzzled :-P I sure hope they didn’t break the bank when they booked the choir – if I were them, I’d be funneling more money into get a troupe that CAN ACTUALLY DANCE IN SYNCH than into ridiculous, over-the-top props. Maybe this is why they skimped on the fire with the extension cord a few weeks ago – had to pinch pennies to afford the choir. Read more..

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Welcome to the New Pure DWTS Server!

If you can see this post, then you’re now seeing Pure DWTS on our new server. We’ll still be tweaking things on the new server over the next little bit. So, bear with us if anything doesn’t work quite like it should. Plus, do let us know if you see anything that doesn’t look quite right. Moving 2255 posts and well over 30,000 comments was a bit of a challenge. We think we got everything transferred, but let us know if we didn’t in the comments of this post.

Besides the posts and comments numbers above (which are incredible), we’ve done almost 4.5 million pageviews since the start of Pure DWTS.

Thanks for everyone who reads it and an even bigger thanks to Princess Heidi, Courtney, Vogue and the other writers that make Pure DWTS great. Let’s hope the new server performs very well so you can all enjoy Pure DWTS even more!

Rob Kardashian Use To Hate Dancing Until Dancing With The Stars

Rob Kardashian was Jay Leno’s guest last night on the Tonight Show. Rob talks of some fun memories with his Dad, his sisters and their craziness, and of course, Dancing With The Stars. He use to hate dancing until he danced on Dancing With The Stars. They show him dancing the Cha Cha with Cheryl. Adam Sandler was there to throw in his two cents on it. Jay also asked Rob what he thinks of the judges and their harsh criticisms. Rob says he tries not to take what they say too seriously. He doesn’t go to his trailer and cry afterwards. He is just having fun and hopes to be there until the end.

I never thought I’d say this, but, I’m liking this guy more and more all of the time. 8O

DWTS Ricki Lake, Derek Hough, And Jennifer Grey Attend Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater L.A. Rising Stars Gala

Below are new some pictures which show off Ricki Lake’s new figure courtesy of the Daily Mail. Ricki attended the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles Annual Rising Stars Gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California this week. Derek and Jennifer Grey were also at the event. Wouldn’t it have been fun to listen to the conversation these three had?

ADDING: People.com also have a new article up where Ricki talks about how losing weight has helped her sex life. Derek commented on it as well. LOL More below….

“When I get home [from rehearsals], I train horizontally,” she said. “[My fiancé] has noticed a difference in my stamina over the last couple of weeks.”

But a bashful Derek Hough, 26 – who stood by his partner’s side as she dished about her deets between the sheets – tried to cut the conversation short.

“Derek knows all about [my sex life],” Lake admitted unashamedly, as Hough turned his head. “He hears about it. Derek and I have gotten to know each other, so, you know, I share stuff with him.”

Hough, who stayed mostly mum on the taboo topic, would only say, “I guess that means I’m not working her hard enough during rehearsals. I want her to go home and collapse.”

Dancing With The Stars Host Tom Bergeron On ‘The Talk’!

Tom Bergeron was a hoot today as always on The Talk, but, he gets serious as well especially when he’s asked straight up on all the controversy on the show this past week. He defends Maks saying he was clumsy with his wording, but, that’s “LIVE TV for ya.” He had to be honest and say he thought Bruno was “rude” with his comments on Chaz and he understands why Chaz was offended. Tom avoided the question when asked who will win Dancing With The Stars Season 13. The person he is most inspired by on the show this season is J.R. Martinez. Though, the best part of the interview is when Tom spills on how he took the gig to host Dancing With The Stars. I won’t ruin it for you. Take a listen in the third segment of the show >>>>HERE
