Tom Bergeron was on KTLA today via Washington DC to talk about his “Capital Fourth” gig on PBS Wednesday night. He also discusses the elections (WHA??) and there are a few funny mentions on the Dancing With The Stars All Star season too. He jokes that he’s called Stacy Keibler to dance, but, she’s hung up on him. He says he will be back in Los Angeles soon to announce the cast. A hoot and “smooth” as always.
Heads ups Maksimistas and Maksimistos! In case you haven’t heard, Dancing With The Stars Maksim Chmerkovskiy will have a guest starring role as a dance partner on the July 25th episode of The Exes. Below is more from People.com including the picture above.
The Dancing with the Stars pro, 32, plays Don, a ballroom companion of the ex-wife of the show’s Stuart (David Alan Basche).
Chmerkovskiy takes Holly, played by Kristen Johnston, for a twirl in the episode called “Shall We Dance.”
Be sure to set your DVRs! This is going to be fun. I can’t wait!
Recently, PureDWTS reader and Louie Vito fan Byrl reported to us that Louie said he was “available” and still had “something to prove” if he was asked to do Dancing With The Stars again. In a new interview with Yahoo TV, he tells them practically the same. Louis would love to do the show again since he’s older and could handle the pressure better. Plus it would help his snowboarding. Here is more…
You came in sixth place on Season 9 of “Dancing With the Stars.” With the “DWTS” All Stars season coming up, would you compete again if they asked?
LV: “DWTS” was a great experience. I was so far out of my comfort zone that it actually made my snowboarding easy. If I could go out and dance in front of 22 million plus people every week, doing something I didn’t have much confidence in, live audience, live judges, and wearing clothes I wouldn’t even wear on Halloween, how wouldn’t it help my snowboarding, which I am confident doing, know what the judges want to see, and wear what I want to wear? I would love to do it again especially since I am a little older now — I just turned 21 when I was on last time — and know how to deal with the pressure a little better.
To read the full interview, go to Yahoo TV.
So, I don’t know about this one? There are other people I’d rather see dance, but, hey.
The dancers from Dancing With The Stars aren’t the only stars of the show to be working and vacationing in Las Vegas currently. Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke was also in Sin City with her family over the weekend. She took part in the Donald Driver Charity events. She was also seen with her family at “O” by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino Saturday night (pictured above). You can read all about it at Vegas News. Sweet!
Check out Lacey Schwimmer and her dancing costume birthday cake!! LOL! The Dancing With The Stars LIVE In Las Vegas star celebrated her 24th birthday this weekend at the Hyde Bellagio in the City that never sleeps. According to Haute Living, Lacey was joined by “a large entourage of friends including former NSYNC member Joey Fatone and professional dancer and choreographer Dmitry Chaplin as well as several other DWTS cast mates.” You can see pics of them all at the link. Note how current cast mate Tristan MacManus wasn’t in attendance. According to a post he made at TristanMacManusFans Page at Facebook, he hurt his knee and can’t dance for several weeks. This is what he posted about it….
Id like to thank everybody for their messages of support and well wishes. I had to wait to be sure before making any announcements but after talking to the doctors I was told that dancing is not an option for me for the next couple of weeks, I regret any disappointment cause or inconvenience but unfortunately its the only option for me to recover. The great news is I dont need surgery and I look forward to intense therapy and treatments to get me back as soon as possible. Slainte
From all of us at Pure Dancing With The Stars, get well soon Tristan!!!
