Entertainment Tonight Goes Into Dancing With The Stars Rehearsals, Interviews Three Couples

Entertainment Tonight went into rehearsals to interview three of the couples….

First up, Melissa and Maks! Melissa tells them she didn’t know she’d feel stupid all the time when learning how to dance. Maks says Melissa is too hard on herself and she’s doing great. He loves how much she’s liking and enjoying it all. He loves watching her reactions to the results and being happy about it. She’s took some dance lessons when she was two and she’s disco danced in clubs, but, it was nothing like what she’s learning now. What’s really fascinating about this part of the interview is what she says about “going as far as they can go”.

Next, Anna and Jack! Jack says Anna is the greatest gift about his new gig on Dancing With The Stars. The most difficult thing is taking some steps forward and having some great days and then recovering from taking a step back when things fall apart a little bit. Anna likes that he’s a hard worker, self motivated, and musical.

Finally, Peta and Donald! Donald says everything is great and Peta is a perfectionist. Sometimes that hurts him, but, he’s glad she’s strict. His team mates have given him some advise. Peta likes that he’s willing to do whatever she wants.

You can take in the interviews in full below or at the link. Check out their dancing too. I think Maks and Melissa are looking especially good! Jack is going to be really entertainining in a “Broadway” kind of way. Not sure about Donald yet? I’m curious 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. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS Roshon Fegan Says Learning How To Ballroom Dance Is Like Learning How To Walk Again

Roshon Fegan can tear it up the dance floor on Disney’s “Shake It Up”, but, can he do so on Dancing With The Stars? Access Hollywood interviewed he and partner Chelsie Hightower today to see what they could find out. Chelsie starts out saying that Roshon has rhythm and some dance background. That they won’t deny. However, “ballroom” dancing is a different story since it’s “structured” which Roshon isn’t use to. He says learing how to ballroom dance is like learning how to walk again. He jokes that he’s been hitting on Chelsie, but, in all seriousness, he says they are having fun and enjoying the chemistry and playing off of each others dancing. They are currently working on the Cha Cha. Lots more below….

Official Rehearsal Pictures Of William Levy And Cheryl Burke Released

Finally, some cool official Dancing With The Stars rehearsal pics of Cheryl Burke and William Levy have been released and wow, are they looking steamy. :D . Be sure to visit Getty Images here to see what I mean because the picture above is only a sneak peek and doesn’t do them complete justice. I especially love the photo of William dipping Cheryl. :)

10 more days, Everyone, and counting! ;)

DWTS Who Wore it Better? Part XV – The Pre-Season 14 Edition!

Yep, we’re back to talk fashion for yet another season’s promo pix :-) And kids, this batch was a bit of a challenge for even me – at least 3 brand-spanking new dresses that weren’t dittoed, some wacky alterations, weird lighting, and the fact that we don’t have pix of Cheryl & Katherine yet made this edition a little less fun and a little more frustrating.  But alas, it’s here now, so enjoy! And a very special thanks to our reader Manny, who graciously helped us out with the screen cap of Niecy, since Hulu only has season 13 available to stream and the DWTS website has taken down all of the photos from old seasons…grrrrr. *shakes fist at sky*

Battle of the gold, silver, super-sparkly jive dress: Kym’s pre-season 14 photo shoot vs. Kym’s jive with David in season 13

Heidi: I know I’m going to disagree with Court on this one – by choosing the photo shoot version. :-) I like the more asymmetrical hem and I like her hair better in that pic. But damn, Kym always looks amazing and she does stick to the similar color pallette much of the time.

Court: Kym has always known what looks good on her (everything) and what doesn’t (not much), but I love how she seems to stick to a lot of nude colors and just lets all the embellishments do the talking.  I remember thinking “Wowwwww…that’s soooo sparrrrrkllllllyyyy!” as she walked down the stairs last season in this number.  But alas, the magic is a bit lost in the whitewash of the photo shoot – so I’m gonna go with jive Kym on this one :-)

The winner: We love Kym in the nude (colors) :-)

Battle of the black lace turtleneck tango dress: Bristol’s Argentine tango with Mark in season 11 vs. Martina’s pre-season 14 photo shoot

Court: I think this may actually be the very first ditto of a Bristol costume we’ve ever seen! Although if you’ve seen one Bristol ditto, I think you’ve pretty much seen them all, as this girl wore A LOT of black lace in season 11 – a fact that made my searching though her costumes all the more confusing :-P But anyway…I gotta say, I’m not really wild about this costume on either woman.  It just seems kinda…dowdy.  But I guess if I had to pick, I’d actually pick Bristol – because I can at least tell it’s a tango costume with the way she’s styled & made up.  Martina…just kinda looks like she’s gesturing for no apparent reason.  But she looks damn good for her age! :-)

Heidi: I can’t pick…too distracted by Marky’s face in that picture. :-) The hell?  Okay, all kidding :::cough::: aside, I have to agree with Courtney. Martina looks fabulous, but Bristol is fully made up for this dress and she wears it pretty well.  I will say, very proud of Martina for going with a dress that is probably more daring on the bottom half than I would have expected.

The winner: Bristol takes this one because we can actually tell what she’s doing. Read more..

DWTS 2012 Donald Driver Says Peta Murgatroyd Is All About Being Perfect

What a cute photo of Peta going to rehearsals yesterday!!! I always like her sense of style. She could easily be a model. You can see another fun picture of her at the Daily Mail. They are also featuring this little excerpt from Donald Driver and what he told Packers.com on her and their rehearsals.

He recently told Packers.com: ‘Peta is getting all five hours out of me.
‘She’s all about being perfect, and that’s not a bad thing. With me, she knows I can continue to go and go. I don’t get tired.

‘She’s been strict with me. For me, it’s that posture part. Peta says, “Don’t look like a robot. Football players always look like robots”.’

Watch this space. We hope to have a new rehearsal interview with these two a little later. ;)
