PureDWTS reader Lisa/@NotEnoughHough filmed some amazing footage of the Grand Casino Hinckley, Minnesota dance event that took place on February 3rd. Tristan MacManus, Peta Murgatroyd, Karina Smirnoff and Mark Ballas were all on tap to dance and entertain and that they did. Mark Ballas performed an acoustic set as well. Kevin Farley, brother to the late Chris Farley, entertained with some stand up comedy. Lisa reactions are so cute. More below and at her You Tube Channel. Lisa, thanks so much for sending these to us. It was worth the wait!!
Just a few fashion mentions related to our Dancing With The Stars cast!! First up, note that tomorrow night, Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke will be at the Oscar’s Red Carpet to rate the best and worst fashions of the night for OK! Magazine. It will be entertaining because former Dancing With The Stars contestant Carson Kressley is on tap as well. You’ll be able to view it all on-line at the link.
Secondly, Dancing With The Stars pro Chelsie Hightower has done a new photo spread for “Sugar and Bruno”. You can view the new Spring 2012 fashion line in a new lookbook HERE. Note how Chelsie has listed a “Spring Playlist” as well as her favorite movie flicks and some cool quotes in some of the photos. Fun and very Chelsie.
Third, below is Cheryl Burke at a QVC event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA this past week that I missed posting about. Gorgeous!! You can view more pics of her at Zimbio.
Lastly, be sure you are following Maks’ twitter account, he’s been posting on outlets where you can obtain his new jewelry line if interested. He’s also on the new cover of Men’s Fitness Magazine which you can view here.
Ok, that is all for now ….on fashion related things that is.
I seriously wanted to put “wild-assed” speculation in the title of this one but thought John might get mad at me.
Seriously, though – after lecturing everyone about not jumping at shadows and thinking every “exciting news” comment on Twitter is a pending DWTS announcement, here I am…jumping at a shadow. Unfortunately, as Claire pointed out in the comments, this one has a twisted synergy to it that lends it some credence in my very twisted mind. What am I calling twisted synergy?? Well, the DWTS producers often show themselves to be rather unimaginative and uninspired when it comes to finding contestants for the show – and that’s what this would be. Chelsea Kane’s co-star on Jonas?? The Disney Channel?? Doesn’t this have Mark Ballas written all over it?? Come on, producers, shop at another store, would ya?? Nicole is/was a competitive gymnast, too. She seems like a cute girl – but I hope this one is WRONG. Here’s what she posted on Twitter last night:
TMZ has learned the identity of yet another of the contestants for the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars” … the super hot Maria Menounos.
What do you think if true? I like her. I can see her with any of the male pros.
Ok, before you read this, take note that I am grasping at straws here. As some of you have noticed at twitter, Peta Murgatroyd flew to Dallas and she’s “very excited” and “happy” much like she was last season at this time. Could she be meeting her new partner on Dancing With The Stars? Sally, one of our readers reminded us of the Troy Aikman rumor in a previous season (Season 11 to be exact). In case you don’t know, Troy Aikman is a former “legendary” quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and as you can see in the video below from TMZ (which was posted on July 29, 2010), Troy remarked he was going to do Dancing With The Stars “next year“. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
So, what do you think? Does this possibility have a leg to stand on and could Troy be Peta’s new partner (if it’s true she’s dancing)? I think they would make a striking and perfect couple and I bet he would be a good dancer too. Also, this is a huge A-lister imo!! Way to go to TPTB if this comes true. You are going to make a fan out of my husband yet.
Despite the rumors of Maks not dancing this season on Dancing With The Stars, TMZ has learned this is not true. Below is a video of Maks arriving at LAX. Though he doesn’t comment on the show, he’s rumored to have met with Melissa Gilbert right after leaving the airport. Be sure to read more at TMZ. As our Heidi reminded us all quickly last night in the comments sections with all the excitement, remember TMZ was “wrong” on some of their findings last season. However, they’ve also been reliable in the past as well. So, it’s anyone’s call here. Prepare for any kind of news on Tuesday on this subject.
If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to see our previous TMZ post that broke out last night with rumors of Jack Wagoner, Melissa Gilbert, and Sherri Shepherd dancing here.
Thanks to PureDWTS reader Elara for this news upon waking up and first getting here this morning!! xx
So, what do you think if Maks is dancing with Melissa (if true?)? Personally, I think she is too small. I see her more with Derek?
