DWTS Champ J.R. Martinez Rides As Grand Marshal In Tournament Of Roses Parade

Pictured above today as the Grand Marshal of the 123rd Tournament Of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California is our Dancing With The Stars champ J. R. Martinez. The Pasadena Sun reports J.R. sat in an open car as fans cheered and waved. On the last four days visiting the city, J.R. said, “The people are so nice and so accommodating. I can see why this tradition continues.”

If you didn’t get to see J.R. in the parade, you can do so at KTLA. You can also view a recent parade preview with J.R. where he talks some on Dancing With The Stars here. Below is a clip of J.R talking about the honor of being Grand Marshal from CBS Los Angeles.

Thanks to Jazortega for the picture above!!

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 .

Kirstie Alley Wants Everyone To Experience Some Version Of Dancing With The Stars

Many of you might have heard that Kirstie Alley, Dancing With The Stars Season 12 2nd place winner, launched a new 100 Days of Dance program in which she encourages everyone to dance with her for 100 consecutive days in order to lose weight or stay fit. Of the program she says, “I want everyone to experience some version of Dancing with the Stars.” Check out a little more below for what she says, where she’d like to travel, and who she’d like to dance with during her time of 100 days of dancing….

“People don’t have to do monotonous, zombie workouts that are boring,” Alley tells PEOPLE. “The thing about dancing is that it’s free and you can do it anywhere and any time.”

“My love is the Argentine Tango and I would love to go to Argentina in these 100 days,” says Alley. “I’ve got to make [John] Travolta dance with me. Jonathan Knight is going to dance with me. I have a whole fleet of people who said they would dance with me, so I’m excited.”

You can read more at People.com as well as joining and watching her daily at 100 Days Of Dance. I wouldn’t be surprised if Maks shows up for a dance or two, would you?

This should be fun! Way to go Kirstie! Keep the dance alive!

DWTS Rob Kardashian Wins Tyrst Champion And Best Dressed Man Award (Photo)

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Rob Karadashian’s New Year’s Eve party was a huge success as 50 ladies and 20 of his closest friends (some of whom he said he has known since junior high and high school) joined him to bring in the New Year and celebrate the last one. Adding to the fun, the Tyrst nightclub awarded Rob with a 2011 New Year’s Eve Award for “Best Dressed Man” (are we surprised? I think he definitely fits that bill …and with a lot of class.) Tyrst also presented Rob with a cake from “Gimme Some Sugar” that replicated the “Dancing With the Stars” trophy and named him Tryst Champion of 2012. To read more on the night and view a cool gallery of fun photos of our 2nd place Dancing With The Stars Season 13 winner, go here.
