DWTS Brooke Burke-Charvet To Co-Host Miss America And Releasing Two New Fitness DVDs

Transforming soon on Las Vegas will be the most lovely women in America to compete for the title of “Miss America”. As we reported to you earlier, Mark Ballas is set to judge. Today it was announced that Dancing With The Stars Brooke Burke will help co-host the event. Not only that, she is to release two new fitness DVDs. Here is more from Haute Living. You can read more on the show at the link. There is also a stunning photo to see of her.

Today, the Miss America Organization announced Brooke Burke-Charvet as the returning co-host for the 2012 Miss America Pageant. Brooke is the co-host of ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars” in March, having earned the coveted mirror ball trophy as season seven’s champion with her professional dance partner, Derek Hough.

In January, she will release two new fitness DVDs, “Transform Your Body With Brooke Burke: Strengthen & Condition” and “Tone & Tighten,” and her first book “The Naked Mom,” will be released in paperback in February. With close to two million Twitter followers, Brooke has made a name for herself as a trusted resource in the world of motherhood and the social media network, motivating her to co-create the website ModernMom.com, an online community for “the woman behind the mom.” As a pro blogger, Brooke offers an in-depth look into her personal life on the site, building upon her own powerful “Mommy” brand. As a successful entrepreneur, Brooke created the online store, BabooshBaby.com in 2007, featuring her popular post-pregnancy belly wraps, Tauts.

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.

Dancing With The Stars Show Coming To Tropicana In Las Vegas?

According to the Las Vegas Sun, plans are in the mix to bring a live version of Dancing With the Stars to the Tropicana in Las Vegas. The new version is set to feature dance pros and stars who have won the show on TV in the past. Below are some details….

Just as Vegas DeLuxe had the exclusives on Motley Crue’s new mini residency at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel and our recent interview with Wynn headliner Garth Brooks, we can tip that the new dance-show run will feature a combination of dance professionals and Hollywood stars who have won — including Flamingo headliner Donny Osmond in Season 9 — and come up short in their attempts for the mirror-ball trophy.

To be clear, I’m not saying that Donny is signed on for this! The yet-to-be-determined cast will rotate during the run so that it doesn’t interfere with the new Season 14 rehearsals beginning in March. I’m also told that audience members at the Tropicana will be invited to participate in an interactive challenge during the shows — if they’ve got some skills and the chops to cha-cha onstage.

To read the full story, go here. Note how the link says this is “more than just rumor.” Wow, wouldn’t this be cool?? I hope this comes true!!

DWTS Anna Trebunskaya To Dance In “Forever Tango” And Working On New Work Out DVD

Heads up for those who love to work out! Anna is currently working on a new workout DVD which is based on a series of exercises she developed with her trainer who is trained in ballet and physical therapy. In light of the new DVD, Anna was photographed at the Annenberg Center for Performing Arts in Philadelphia demonstrating how she warms up to prevent injury. You can view 28 photos of Anna at Philly.com. Each photo is captioned with something about Anna and her new venture. When we hear more on the DVD and when it will be released, we’ll be sure to let you know.

In other news on Anna, she is to replace Cheryl Burke in “Forever Tango” on Feb. 9th. Due to an illness in the family, Cheryl Burke could not perform on that date. For ticket information and to read more, see Broadway World.

DWTS Gift Ideas: The Dancing With The Stars Barbie Doll

For Dancing With The Stars fans who are also Doll collectors and/or who are looking for the perfect gift for a little girl or that special someone for Christmas, did you know there was a Dancing With The Stars Barbie line? Seen above is the Dancing With The Stars “Paso Doble” Barbie (which is my favorite), but, there is also a “Waltz” Barbie and a “Samba” Barbie. PureDWTS reader, Gitte, had this to say on the Barbies and indentifying their dresses;

So far I’ve identified 2 out of 3 dresses.
Samba Barbie is wearing Kym’s samba dress from season 7/Joanna’s preseason photo shoot dress.
Paso doble Barbie is wearing Brooke’s paso doble dress from season 7.
I’m sure I’ve seen the waltz dress before too, but I can’t remember on who.

If interested in seeing and/or purchasing, be sure to visit Angelic Dreams. They are all beautiful and not that expensive either. Which is your favorite?

Special thanks to PureDWTS reader Biffette for letting us know on these dolls! If you’d like some more Dancing With The Stars gift giving ideas, visit the ABC TV Store here.

Khris Jenner Too Much Work To Dance And No Offer From Dancing With The Stars

At the end of November, we were all a little horrified on the idea of Khris Jenner possibly dancing on the next season of Dancing With The Stars. Well, for now, it looks like we don’t have anything to worry about. For one thing, there has been no offer yet from the show. Khris also says she has too much work.

A spy at the Hollywood Reporter’s Power 100 Women in Entertainment breakfast on Wednesday overheard the head of the Kardashian klan tell “Dancing With the Stars” alumna Nancy Grace that she won’t be able to shuffle onto the dance-competition show because “she has too much work”…

Jenner’s rep said, “Nope, no offer [was made by ‘DWTS’].”

You can read the story in full at the New York Post.

Who’s taking a sigh of relief with me?
