DANCING WITH THE STARS on GSN!! Starting January 21, 2012

This is just a tease for some upcoming information about DWTS on GSN.  I am working on getting a bit more information – as soon as I know it, you’ll hear about it.   From GSN:

GSN (Game Show Network) has an amazing gallery of stunning new original art—as well as revealing one-on-one, behind-the-scenes video interviews—with a buzzworthy group of DANCING WITH THE STARS celebrity alums and pro dancers from a variety of seasons, including reigning champ J.R. Martinez!

As we recently announced, GSN has acquired seasons 4-14 of DANCING WITH THE STARS, and we assembled a one-time only group of series veterans and dance pros to celebrate and promote our upcoming January 21 launch of the series.

….

GSN will kick off our airings of DWTS with Season 4 on Saturday, January 21, 2012, at 6:00pm ET/5pm CT.  Season 4 episodes will air back-to-back every Saturday night on GSN through March 3, 2012.

GSN sent us some High Res photos for your enjoyment (Derek Fans head to PDH). 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. :-)

Jenny McCarthy Says Dancing With The Stars Better Talk The Walk Or Walk The Talk

Last summer, it was reported that the producers of Dancing With The Stars were looking for “a-List” celebrities to dance on the show instead of “gimmicky” d-list stars. Yesterday, Jenny McCarthy spoke out about it to The Hollywood Reporter when she commented about the possibility of doing reality television and Dancing With The Stars…

….when asked about the chances of ever seeing her on Dancing With the Stars, McCarthy seemed amused but firm.

“They ask me every year, and I just can’t do it,” she says. “I tell them why: You guys keep saying every year you’re going to get A-List people and then it’s the girl that was with George Clooney… They better talk the walk or walk the talk — whatever that saying is.”

Personally, I thought Jenny sounded a little arrogant, but, oh how she’d make a hot partner for Derek Hough with her beautiful matching blonde hair and steel blue eyes? Also, wasn’t Kirstie Alley an “a-lister”? David Arquette could be considered an “a-lister” too, couldn’t he? Penny for your thoughts.

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.

DWTS Former Pro Alec Mazo: “Working with your spouse is fruitful if….”

As you know from a previous reporting, Edyta Sliwinska and hubby, Alec Mazo have started a new facebook page called “Dancing Pros” in promotion with their stage show “Dance Temptation”. Last week, Edyta wrote her first blog where she discusses how she got picked to do Dancing With The Stars. This week, Alec takes the wheel to write about the capability of married couples being able to work together. In doing so, he’s honest in saying “sometimes”. He takes us to the beginning when he met and started competing with Edyta to their decision to do Dancing With The Stars. Below is a take on the Dancing With The Stars part….

Edyta and I grew tired of competing and made a decision to go on DWTS because we wanted to be together, which would be difficult if we kept competing in Ballroom.

At first, the decision to go on DWTS was right on the money, figuratively speaking. Our motives were purely personal. There was no money incentive from DWTS – they paid very little the first couple of seasons and we could have made triple the pay at the studio. Since we joined DWTS from the first season, we had no idea how successful the show would become. However, working with other people (me with Kelly Monaco and Edyta with Evander Holyfield) made us realize how much we wanted to be together based on the time together/apart balance. Our personal relationship thrived. I should note that at this point, being on DWTS meant that we were often in the same building at CBS studios, but were really not working together outside of result show performances and occasional choreography advice to each other. Another plus was that when we went home, we could talk about the common goals and objectives. We understood each other very well and this communication helped our personal relationship. The key takeaway from this experience was that working together with your spouse is fruitful if you can balance your time together/apart, work within your circle of expertise, have common goals/objectives, and understand each other’s personalities while keeping the communication channel open.

Once again, fascinating! You can read Alec’s first blog in full at Dancing Pros. He plans to write more on the subject soon.
