Katherine Jenkins to Dance with Derek Hough in Utah Concerts

Many thanks to @carolynbishop2 for the heads up on this story – cross posted from PureDerekHough.com.

So is this why he’s been spending time with Katherine? Or is this a result of his spending time with Katherine. Inquiring minds and all that. :-)  From Express.co.uk:

The 32-year-old mezzo-soprano is set to jet out to the US to perform at a series of concerts with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra in Salt Lake City and is (ahem) apparently fascinated by all things Mormon.

“I’m really intrigued to find out more about the Mormon way of life,” she tells us. “I’m going to be dancing the paso doble with Derek in front of 44,000 Mormons.”

UPDATE: Thanks to Elmari for the heads up that you can watch this on TV if you get BYUtv on your cable…or you can watch it online.

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. :-)

Joey Fatone Not Sure He’d Want To Dance Again On Dancing With The Stars

The Examiner has a great piece up on former Dancing With The Stars contestant Joey Fatone. They ask him about the possibility of returning for the Dancing With The Stars All Star season. Below is what he said about it. Note how he said he hasn’t got “the call” yet and also note how he’s in the process of moving to Los Angeles. Hmmm?

While Fatone is grateful for his varied career opportunities, he said that “Dancing with the Stars” was one of his greatest experiences, as it took him out of the element of what he was used to. When asked if there was any chance of him returning for the show’s star-studded 15th season, which will mix up the format a bit by bringing back past contestants for a chance to win the coveted Mirror Ball trophy, Fatone said he wasn’t sure just yet if that was something he wanted to do.

“I don’t really have to redeem myself, as I came in second place,” he explained. “But maybe for the fun of it. I haven’t gotten a call though [inviting him back], but I should know soon enough.”

For now, Fatone is just hoping to spend some more time with his family as he makes the move from Florida to L.A. Whether or not he’ll extend his contact with “Dancing with the Stars: Live in Las Vegas” should the show be extended again remains to be seen, but, as Fatone noted, with 14 seasons of the hit ABC series already wrapped, there are plenty of celebrities to fill his spot should he decide to leave the Vegas production before it ends.

So, what do you think? Would you like to see Joey come back for the Dancing With The Stars All Star season?

I always liked Joey. I loved NSync too!! I wouldn’t mind seeing him dance again. Remember this? He was quite faster on his feet than I first thought he would be.

DWTS Poll: Would You Like To See Brooke Burke Dance Again, New Photoshoots, & More

If you’ve been following Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet at twitter, you know she’s been keeping herself really busy this summer in the off season spending quality time with her husband and family. Brooke has also been promoting her new intiMINT line as well as taking part is some new photo shoots such as a “covered topless” Major League shoot which you can view at Egotastic.com. Don’t worry. It’s tastefully done (in my opinion :) ).

Brooke was also seen recently taking photos for a bikini shoot at her house in Malibu (pictured above). You can see more candid pics of Brooke behind the scenes at Actress Book.

Also, check out this recent video below at Brooke’s You Tube channel where she discusses what turns her on in a guy. She has some good advise for them too.

So, question: would you like to see Brooke dance or co-host in the Dancing With The Stars All-star season? Vote below and let us know what you think?

Hmmm, I think it might be cool to see Brooke dance again…especially with someone else like Tristan or Maks.

DWTS Season 15: Cast Announcement

Has anyone seen this yet?

According to the Dancing with the Stars Facebook Feed:

Dance alert! The new cast of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars will be announced on Friday, July 27! Are you ready for this?!

Considering that is the day of the Opening Ceremonies on NBC how much do you wanna bet that ABC is trying to lure viewers to seeing the cast announcement.

Thanks to reader Kristin it is also on the official Twitter Feed:

Dance alert! The new cast of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars will be announced on Friday, July 27! Are you ready for this?! ‪#DWTS

This is Vogue with an update: According to The Hollywood Reporter, the announcement will take place during the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Here is more…

The network, which hasn’t officially set its fall premiere dates yet, will debut the ensemble of previous DWTS competitors during its presentation at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

Previously, announcements for DWTS have come just three weeks shy of the premiere and been televised during Good Morning America or the network’s primetime programming block. The move also signals that the cast will have more time to prepare for the competition — or, less likely, an August premiere.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)
