Getting Caught Up With DWTS Season 14′s Maria Menounos And Derek Hough!!

Aren’t these two a beautiful couple…and quirky too which will pave to be interesting in more ways than one in the coming weeks? The pictures above are from the Dancing With The Stars after party this past Monday night. We posted a picture of Maria before, but, not a picture of Derek. I just love his taste in jeans always …among other things. :)

Anyway, be sure you get caught up on these two at Pure Derek Hough when you get a chance and give our Miss Heidi a shout out. Despite being on a road trip all week, she somehow found the time to post on all of Derek and Maria’s current interviews and pictures. She also has a new clip of Derek and Boa dancing in the upcoming movie Cobu 3D that is a “must see”!!!

Dancing with the Stars – Ratings Watch

As a blogger, I get a lot of my ideas for things to write on twitter or other websites. Often, my ideas are a result of reading things that I know just aren’t true, either in my gut or by knowledge of facts. This series is no different. When I’m not playing Devil’s Advocate, I’m attempting to debunk some crazy hyperbole that I’ve read out on the web. Just call me contrary. :-) It’s my way. Anyway, one of the things that I read on a semi-regular basis is a phrase similar to: “Well, DWTS’ ratings just aren’t that good anymore” or “the rating are way down”. The former is, well – wrong. Or at the very least, seriously in need of CONTEXT. The latter? Well, that would be a bit of hyperbole. They are on a downward trend, compared to previous seasons…but when you are maintaining your top ten status (which certainly means that most TV is down as a whole), does it really matter?? Let’s face it – there are a lot of different ways to watch TV programs these days and I ain’t talking DVR. Not only is there On Demand, but there is the web.

But I digress. Let’s look at the average seasonal ratings for all seasons of DWTS up to this point.

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. :-)

DWTS14 Mark Ballas: “It’s Going To Be A Fist Fight Until The End”

Katherine and Mark discuss Dancing With The Stars on Showbiz Tonight! Mark thinks it’s “going to be a fist fight until the end” with the level of dancing this season. Katherine is so humble and says if they brought some enjoyment to fans Monday night, that’s what they were hoping for. You can tune into more of this interview below…

Also, Mark has written another new blog for USA Today on their upcoming Jive which you can read about below. Be sure to read the link too because he’s planning something special Monday night to tweet to his fans.

Jive week is always one of my favorites, as it’s one of my favorite dances. This week , I can promise you an action-packed, fun, rockin’ jive with a touch of a theme and some slick, sexy costumes. In fact, I don’t think Katherine has ever worn something this sassy!

Looking back, I’m glad we prepared our jive routine during the four-week training period before the season premiere. It has definitely made this week less stressful when it comes to getting the choreography down.

I am really excited about getting on the floor and showcasing Katherine in the Latin round. Our music this week is really rockin’ too, which always helps with inspiration.

Jaleel White And Kym Johnson Discuss The Competition On Dancing With The Stars And More (Videos)

Below is Jaleel White on The Rosie Show! He reveals what’s happening behind the scenes of Dancing With The Stars. He also talks of who he sees as his biggest threat on the dance floor and lots more….

His partner, Kym Johnson, is also featured at Reality TV Magazine. Below is a take with her thoughts on Jaleel and the competition.

So, what does Kym Johnson think of her partner, the former Steve Urkel? Kym thinks that Steve is very intelligent and coordinated, which helps on the dance floor. She also added: “He’s very hard on himself. That can be a great quality, but it can be a detriment as well. It’s great because he strives for perfection, but he gets frustrated when he can’t pick a step up in the first two seconds. He just has to be a little bit more patient with the learning.”

As for the competition this season, Kym Johnson revealed that she is a big fan of Martina Navratilova, Katherine Jenkins, and Maria Menounos. Kym also reiterated what everyone has been saying along – the standard is very high this season, and she is looking forward to seeing how it all plays out each week.
