DWTS Derek Hough Returns To New Orleans To Shoot More Dance Scenes For Cobu 3D

Isn’t this a cool picture of Derek at the airport in New Orleans?!! He’s currently there to shoot some more dance scenes for his movie “Cobu 3D”. To see more fun pictures of him at the airport, visit Zimbio. Heidi has even more pictures of him on location on Bourbon Street at Pure Derek Hough if you want to check those out too. He’s in fine dance form as always. :D Right now, the IMDb website has listed an October 10, 2012 release date in Belgium for Cobu 3D. Note however that this site hasn’t been very reliable in the past for updating on this movie. We hope to know more soon!

Heidi’s Note: It appears they might already be gone from New Orleans – sounds like the tap choreographer is already gone, so I imagine that Derek will be too, shortly. One day of work and a bunch of food, is what Derek’s NOLA experience sounded like this time.

I’ve also heard release dates for Norway, Germany and a couple other countries. And a rumor that said “fall” for the US. These things change constantly, so we’ll have to wait and see. :-)

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Planning To Return To Dancing With The Stars Next Season

According to a new interview with Maks at People.com, he is planning on returning next season for another shot at the mirror ball. Despite some rough edges last season, Maks says he loves the show and what it stands for. Below is a take where Maks voices that there are things he’s not extremely proud of, but, his imperfections and the “not-so-good” moments have made him who he is today.

“There were some things that I’m not extremely proud of, but I think that the imperfections and not-so-good moments are exactly what made me who I am,” he says.

It’ll be impossible to forget those moments since past competitions will begin airing on GSN (Game Show Network). The cable network will air seasons 4 through 14 beginning Jan. 21 on Saturdays at 6 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT.

“There were some ups and downs, but every season had something interesting in it, whether it was the dynamic of a partnership or me speaking back to the judges,” says Chmerkovskiy.

Be sure to read the full story at People.com.

So, what do you think? Are you looking forward to another season with Maks if the powers that be hire him for another season? I hope Maks will be back and I’m still a fan of his dancing, but, I hope he’s truly learned some lessons from last season and he will rise above from here on out in being an example to those who look up to him. I also hope they pair him with a person who isn’t so much of a match to his personality like last season. I’m not making excuses, but, that had to be hard to deal with for both parties.

Heidi’s Comment: Well, he should have learned by now, one would think.  But, that said, I do appreciate that he recognizes that he has had some not good moments on the show. I didn’t get the feeling that he thought he had done anything that people could criticize last season. To acknowledge that is a sign of some growth, anyway.  As for coming back to the show – HE wants to, but that doesn’t mean it will happen. I personally think he could use a bit of a break. One season wouldn’t kill him. Or his fans. I’m living proof. :-)

‘Behind The Scenes’ Of The Game Show Network DWTS Photoshoot (Video)

What a treat this is!!! If you haven’t seen it yet, Entertainment Tonight has released a “behind the scenes” look of the Dancing With The Stars/Game Show Network photo shoot. Maks looks back at the previous seasons with passion and says they still “dance” the same passionate way today. ET also asks Maks who he wants for a partner for this upcoming season. He corrects the interviewer and says the pros don’t pick their partners. He just got lucky with Hope. Lacey says it will be fun looking back at the previous seasons, but, she will be embarrassed and will need to critique herself. Mel B says she’s so “over” Maks as he has tried to grope and dance with her again with their reunion(lol). Joking aside, she was so thankful for the experience because it got her in shape after having a baby. Derek reflects back on his favorite moments of lifting the mirror ball trophy. So cute…all of them! Lots more below….

Don’t forget, you can begin watching reruns of Dancing With The Stars on Jan. 21st at 6 p.m. ET on GSN. In the meantime, enjoy the Dancing With The Stars promo page which includes bios, photos, and videos at GSN here.
