“Do Something Healthy” with Derek Hough

You’ll have to fly to Tacoma to do it, though. :-) According to MultiCare.org, you can register now to Do Something Healthy:

He’s sambaed with Shannon, jived with Jennie and rumbaed with Ricki. Now Derek Hough is set to tango with Tacoma. And you can be a part of it!

Hough, who has danced his way into the hearts of viewers nation-wide on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars (DWTS), is the featured speaker at MultiCare’s 2013 “Do Something Healthy” event.

Hough is a master dancer and choreographer. With a different partner each season, he’s won the DWTS competition multiple times. He’s also been nominated for three Emmy awards and played the male lead in the critically acclaimed London stage version of Footloose.

But according to Dorn, it’s more than Hough’s talent that makes him a perfect speaker for “Do Something Healthy.” “He’s just so encouraging and so positive,” she says. “I think he’ll be very popular.”Hough will take part in a moderated discussion, addressing issues such as being active, reaching your goals and finding inspiration.

But he won’t spend all of his time behind a microphone. He’ll put on his dancing shoes too! And at some point, he’ll trip the light fantastic and woo the crowd with his musical moves. Before his presentation, he’ll act as a judge for a MultiCare dance competition for teens as well. Groups of local teens have spent the past few weeks filming audition videos for a panel of judges to review. The top three groups will be selected to compete live at the event.

Sounds fantastic!! Who volunteers to go, get healthy and take all important pictures of Derek? ;-) Click the link above for more information.

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. :-)

Lance Armstrong Turns Down Dancing With The Stars

First Lindsay Lohan and now Lance Armstrong? 8O I didn’t mind the thought of Lindsay dancing, but, I’m drawing the line at Lance dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Please, let’s hope Lance doesn’t change his mind. Below is more from Entertainment Weekly. If you’d like to read more, see the link.

Lance Armstrong may not be able to race the Tour de France again. But ABC definitely wants him on Dancing With the Stars.

Sources say the ABC reality hit offered the former professional cyclist a spot on the upcoming spring edition of the veteran reality series. Armstrong declined.

Though the network approached Armstrong before his recent doping confession, we suspect Armstrong’s high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey hasn’t dulled the network’s interest.

Heidi: This is seriously out of control. All we’re hearing about is people who are trainwrecks saying no. Should I be thankful? Should I be worried that they will find someone WORSE?? The article claims they asked him pre-confession, but still. This is how we’re going to pursue Season 16?? Come ON, producers. Who’s next? People in Jail? Dancing with the Criminally Insane??

Lindsay Lohan Turns Down ‘Lucrative Offer’ From Dancing with the Stars

If true, I’m sad. I’d love to see Lindsay Lohan dance and a what a cool way to show another side to herself than what tabloids report!!! I love her as an actress and nothing will change that. Below is more from TMZ for how Lindsay turned down a huge offer from Dancing With The Stars!!

Lindsay Lohan’s ego might be her downfall — because TMZ has learned, she just shut down a lucrative offer to do “Dancing with the Stars” … because she doesn’t want to do reality TV.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us, the actress was made several offers to join the DWTS cast this upcoming season — offers that maxed out at $550,000.

But Lindsay — who still owes hundreds of thousands in back taxes — shut them down, telling friends she’d never consider doing reality TV … she wants to stick to films.

You can read more at TMZ. What do you think? You can tell us. :D

Did Dancing With The Stars Ask Former Miss Alabama To Dance In DWTS Season 16? (Rumor)

Is the former Miss Alabama, Katherine Webb, contemplating an offer from Dancing With The Stars? Today, the NY Post reported that Katherine was in New York last week being photographed for the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. She was also seen at an eatery and overheard saying that Dancing With The Stars offered her a spot on the show. More below and the link!

Webb was also overheard saying that she was offered a spot in the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” but did not say whether she would participate.

As Heidi said to me privately (and I agree with her), take this “with a huge grain of salt”.

Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the find.
