We hope to have the new Ellen Show interview up shortly with Peta Murgatroyd and Donald Driver. In the meantime, you can read a new interview with Peta at Fitness Magazine where she talks of her predictions, her favorite season so far, how she and Donald prepare for the show, and what the cameras don’t catch on Dancing With The Stars. More at the link.
I predict the three couples in the finals will include… “Fingers crossed, Donald and I will make it! Katherine [Jenkins] has amazing skills and William [Levy] has the fan base. But there are a lot of great dancers this season who could surely go to the end!”
My favorite season so far… “I’ve only been on two, but when I was with Meta World Peace [nee Ron Artest], we were knocked out in the first round. Donald is dedicated, willing to put in the hours and is so kind. We’re working so hard for the mirrorball trophy and are planning to add better skills and harder choreography moving forward.”
To prepare for one show… “We dance at least six hours daily, and sometimes come back in the evening for more. Then Donald goes home to his family—he’s great at balancing it all!”
The cameras don’t catch… “Despite the strong competition, everyone becomes a big family. I’m really good friends with Katherine and Maks [Chmerkovskiy].”
Also, Lori has told me that the two will be playing a “King and Queen” tonight. She heard this in a new Ryan Seacrest interview this morning.
More in a bit with these two. Watch this space!
