Great new interview with Maria – very long and chatty and not sure how accurate it is, but still interesting. From the Vegas Deluxe (click the link to read the whole thing):
TV darling Maria Menounos admits that she’s so badly injured from her run on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” that by all rights, she shouldn’t still be on the show, and while in Las Vegas over the weekend, she had to use an electric scooter to get around.
“My partner has started calling me Grandma,” she laughed. “The doctors told me I shouldn’t continue dancing. They ordered me to stop. But I refused, even though I am in so much pain,” Maria confessed before rehearsals off-Strip for tonight’s double dance of the samba and Viennese waltz ahead of Tuesday’s double elimination.
Maria was with her pro partner Derek Hough celebrating the launch of Bud Light Lime’s margarita-flavored alcoholic beverage “Lime-a-Rita’ poolside at Mandalay Bay appropriately at a Cinco de Mayo party Saturday. Our thanks to Bryan Steffy for our exclusive, sizzling-hot photo gallery.
But what I find MOST interesting is this bit at the end from Derek:
Incidentally, Derek is juggling new offers and doesn’t know if he’ll be back for Season 15. “I haven’t been asked yet anyway,” he said. “So we have to wait to see what works out with what else I could be doing this fall.”
After last night, I hope those new offers pan out for him. Very much.
