Mark Ballas Blogs About His Fight with Bristol and DWTS

I completely forgot that Marky has a blog for USA Today. Not as long or as detailed as Maks’ but it’ll do in a pinch.  Once again I find myself on Mark’s side – people call off work every single day in a professional setting because of family issues. No big deal. That Bristol made it one just shows her own self centeredness.  Particularly since they made the time up later in the day and, from what I’ve heard, she’s doing a third of the rehearsal time of the other couples anyway.

A lot of people have been asking why I “missed a rehearsal.” I had a family matter involving my mom that morning, and I did everything a cast member is supposed to regarding a rehearsal cancellation or a time change. I called production and told them I wouldn’t make it and that we should reschedule for that evening. We did make up the lost rehearsal time that night. And thankfully, my mom is doing much better.

On the upside, our rehearsals since then have been a million times better. We are much stronger as a team, and ready to push forward. I love what I do and love doing it for the fans. I always give 100% and am proud to be a member of this cast.

But why does he insist on tattoos?? :-)
