Hey Guys! Don’t miss making a big pit stop over at Pure Derek Hough when you get a moment. Heidi has some new takes of Derek pictured at a Lakers game thanks to @donamadrina! Cheryl Burke is also pictured with him. Also, don’t miss a really cute interview with he and Kellie Pickler talking about Dancing With The Stars!! I love what Derek said abut Kellie’s leg extensions. A MUST SEE and READ!!!
John (also know in these parts as “Charlie”! ) interviewed Mark Ballas over the weekend at a SXSW seminar. John asks Mark all about his new partner Aly Raisman, their competition, the dark horses this year, his dating life and his hair style. They also talk about Derek Hough as well and John mentions us bloggers and Heidi’s site. Mark also says he will keep dancing for Dancing With The Stars for as long as they want him. He wraps up the interview with a shout out and love sent to his fans. Lots more below….
Good Job, John, and the fans who sent questions at twitter!! This has to be one of the best interviews I’ve heard with Mark!
I just soak these two up! I can’t get enough. Enjoy Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess on VH1 Buzz this morning. He’s a hoot as always, but, he’s serious about doing Dancing With The Stars. They’ve been practicing up to 6 hours a day. Also, I guess they had a lot of fun on their flight to New York City last night busting some dance moves.
UPDATE: And here is a rehearsal interview with Andy and Sharna….
Karina Smirnoff tells Good Morning Maryland that Jacoby Jones is goofy. They are laughing 90% of the time during their rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars. However, there is a serious side too. They are both very serious about this competition. He won’t take a break when she wants and same with Karina when he wants. He talks a lot of smack, but, he just wants to do well like the previous football players who have done Dancing With The Stars. Lots more below….
“An almost admission??” Sean Lowe called in to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning. He talked about the Bachelor finale tonight. Though the interesting part comes right near the end of the interview when Ryan came out and asked Sean if he was going to be on Dancing With The Stars this season. At first, Sean laughs and then said it was still up in the air. Ryan teased Sean by saying he was going to call Derek Hough and ask him. At the end, Sean tells Ryan to call him next week and he may be able to say something more. Hmmm??
You can read and listen to the interview in a Soundcloud link HERE!! Thanks to Lori for the fun heads up this morning!!!
Also take note that Peta Murgatroyd tweeted this morning that she is headed for New York City? Could this be for an announcement tonight or in the morning on Good Morning America? The speculation continues.
As promised, Good Morning America had one of the Dancing With The Stars Season 16 couples as guests today as they will do every day this week leading up to the premiere next week. First up, Tristan MacManus and Dorothy Hamill!! Dorothy says she’s not quite ready to dance next week, but, she hopes to be now that her ice show is over. Tristan praises her and she’s doing well. She talks of the differences between skating and ice skating. She’s not use to having to dance in “shoes”. They give a preview for their first dance. More below! They are adorable. So much charm and class. She radiates “Princess” and he a “Prince”. *sigh* Who’s ready?
You can watch the interview in full HERE.
Hey Guys!!! Dance Junkies TV will be interviewing pro Louis Van Amstel tomorrow night (Tuesday). Stuart Brazell has written us asking you to submit your questions in comments and she will try to get as many questions answered as they can.

Doesn’t the above picture look fun? Wynonna Judd tweeted it with the caption: “Is there such a thing as an Albanian cowboy?!? NOW there is!!” LOL! Too fun and hopefully they are going to show us more from this outting on Dancing With The Stars coming up?
Also, Wynonna and Tony were on Entertainment Tonight. Here they are in rehearsals. Wynonna says she’s more than Naomi Judd’s daughter, a number, or a “Chic singer”!! Go Wynonna and that you are!!
How do you think they look? Note that Tony and Wynonna will be on GMA on Wednesday, March 13th!!!!
UPDATE: Wynonna tells Access Hollywood that she thinks she’s lost 2 pounds in one day from rehearsing with Tony for Dancing With The Stars. She also talks of how much her friend Kirstie Alley has helped her. More at the link and be sure to watch this link because they may post a video shortly.
Wynonna’s s become so focused on tackling the ballroom, that they are rehearsing in her garage in Nashville, which she transformed into an at home studio. Despite being a country music veteran, Wynonna admitted she already has performance anxiety.
“My fans have been saying to me, ‘You’re an incredible talent and I know you’re going to do great. Just enjoy it and relax,’” she said. “Relax? Really? In front of millions of people… OK.”
Keeping her calm, and offering sage advice, has been her friend and “DWTS” alum Kirstie Alley.
“Kirstie’s become my mentor in telling me, ‘Get two buckets, get some ice, have them ready in the car when you’re done,’” she said.
Heads up!! Tonight on the TV Guide Network is a new Dancing With The Stars special called “The Cast of Dancing with the Stars: Where Are They Now?” It starts at 9:00pm ET. Below is more from TV Guide as well as a teaser with Tony Dovolani and Melissa Rycroft…..
