Pure DWTS in Sandy’s Path

Hey there everyone!

I don’t need to tell anyone about the arrival of Hurricane Sandy, and how she is going to pummel the NorthEast of the United States. I don’t need to tell anyone that this is an icredibly HUGE storm, and that it isn’t going to simply “go away with only a whisper.” Yes, it would be nice!

Already in the comments, I’ve seen people mention that they’re in the path, and I’ve seen others asking for safety…

One reason I like this site, is that people who are here regularly develop a camaraderie, and a friendship and a respect, even though we all have different thoughts and feelings and favorite pros and celebrities. We find friendships. Read more..

Kirstie Alley Wants Maksim Chmerkovskiy To Guest Star On Her New Show

Co-host Brooke Burke tells Life & Style Magazine that Kirstie Alley is the “one of the funnest contestants ever” on Dancing With The Stars. She says Kirstie “has such a good attitude” and “she’s entertaining.” Kirstie also chatted with Life & Style Magazine about her Dancing With The Stars partner Maks Chmerkovskiy and how she wants him to guest on her new show. Here is more…

The 61-year-old actress has a tumultuous past with pro dancer Maks, whom she also danced with in season 12.

But they get along just fine now! “He is a special guy,” Kirstie says. “What’s not known is that Russians and Kansans always bond. That’s the link that no one knows about.”

And as Kirstie has told Life & Style, she wants him to guest star on her new show.

“I think he has to play my date,” she recently shared.

You can read more at Life & Style Magazine.

Maks and Kirstie have the “it” factor when it comes to comedy and entertaining. I hope it happens!

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

DWTS All Stars, Week 5 – The Cheesecake Awards!!

Word to the wise: If you want to see something in the Cheesecake Awards, DON’T say so. Don’t tell us what you expect to see. Because if you do, we just might think it’s too obvious or decide that we don’t want anyone to expect anything – and not include it.

Just sayin’. :-)  The Cheesecake is on the small side this week – we have discovered that most of the cheesy goodness is in a results show. :-)

Beware: Heidi’s Mean Streak is wider than usual this week. :-)

Tom Bergeron Line O’ the Night: “By the way, tonight Carrie Ann Plays the Iceberg” (ref. Titanic) in reference to her comments regarding Shawn and Derek’s supposed lift.

Heidi: That was very clever. I love me some Tom. Even CAI couldn’t help but laugh at herself after that one and Len loved it as well. How is he so quick?? I’d be standing there saying, “Bitch.”

Courtney: For someone that gets all OTT in her praise like CAI often does, she’s also a colossal buzzkill – and nothing says buzzkill like a humongous ocean liner getting obliterated by an iceberg.  And Carrie Ann, like an iceberg, is chilly, jagged, and is useless as a judge on a reality tv dancing show :-) Read more..

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Apolo Ohno Writes Of Getting Back On Track And Finding New Inspiration

Apolo Ohno has written a new blog at People.com. He says he and Karina have had some issues, but, they’ve cleared the air and feel even closer now. They are also going to treat every dance as if it’s their last. Lots more below on this past week’s struggles, their new dance and how much it means to him and Karina.

Going into this week’s competition, I told Karina, “Let’s clear the air. Let’s get back on track and find new inspiration.” We went out, we talked, we had a good time. I told her we should treat every week like it’s our last. I want to just forget about the scores and the comments, and use the criticism as constructive. I know for me, that means emotionally showing a different side that perhaps people haven’t seen.

This song is about cancer. This song has a personal connection to both Karina and me. I have to go into a very different place, all while trying to perform this dance. It’s really beautiful and really smooth. I really like it, but it’s really emotional. I’m inviting kids from the City of Hope who have gone through or are going through cancer treatments, so I hope they enjoy it.

We just have this whole new approach and we’ve been kicking each other’s ass in the studio. It’s awesome. We’ve been hitting it hard every single day. I’m happy with the dance. We’re just continuing to keep polishing.

Be sure to read the full blog at People.com. It’s a good one! I hope he and Karina give new meaning to the word “connection” and make all the nay sayers eat their words.

“May the force be with you” and Bonnie and Clyde might need it. Pictured above is Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough and sister Julianne Hough with boyfriend Ryan Seacrest! This weekend they attended a Halloween Party in Beverly Hills, California. Other celebrities to attend the party dressed in their halloween best were Maria Menounos, Alessandra Ambrosio, Hilary Duff, Paris Hilton, Seal, and Cindy Crawford. Pictures above are from Zimbio Pictures. Heidi has collected a bunch more pictures of Derek at PureDerekHough as well as everything from this past week of he and Shawn on Dancing With The Stars.

Speaking of Derek and Julianne, while you are at PureDerekHough, be sure to see THIS POST as it has a hint of Derek’s “upcoming projects” with sister Julianne in it. “Scripted drama”? Whatever they are up too sounds fascinating! Be sure to listen and see for yourself.
