DWTS Karina Smirnoff Makes ‘Forever Tango’ Rule With Maksim Chmerkovskiy

And the rule is, Maks has to listen to her!!! Below is more from USA Today from Karina Smirnoff on her new dance gig and working with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

“The rule is he listens to me. And everything I ask for is the Golden Rule,” says Smirnoff. “He’s growing up. He’s becoming a very smart man. So I think he’s going to follow that rule very well.”

The two announced last week that they will perform the sensuous dance at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theater July 9-24. The Dancing With the Stars standouts became engaged in 2009 before going through a very bitter break-up.

“Regardless of the personal history we’ve always enjoyed dancing together,” says Smirnoff. “And we’re both excited to do this project. Knowing the passionate history we have, either way it’s going to be exciting to watch.”

Let’s hope it works out. They are a very exciting team to watch indeed!!

ADDING: Be sure to check out the instagram in this tweet. It’s really fun…

Trailer for Derek Hough’s Movie Posted by Dutch Film Distributor

Make Your Move, Starring Derek and Asian pop star BoA has a trailer – and I think it looks pretty good! It was put up by a Dutch distributor so it has subtitles. Now….if we can get an American release date, all would be right with the world. :-)  I’m not going to Holland this year.

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 Carrie Anne Inaba Co-Hosts LIVE With Kelly And Michael

Today Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba helped to co-host “LIVE With Kelly And Michael” since Kelly took some time off for a vacation. In the show opener, they talk of Carrie Ann’s rescue work for animals. Currently, Carrie Anne has 8 cats and several dogs that she’s fostering.

As for Dancing With The Stars, they didn’t mention much except to say that last season was “one of the best”. Michael loved Jacoby Jones. Carrie Ann asked Michael what moves he would do for a free style if he were to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Michael then starts doing some sexy body rolls (nice! :D He should do the show. He’d be good). Michael said if he ever did Dancing With The Stars, he’d be very competitive and he would want to win. Michael also asked the audience if they like seeing men strip down on Dancing With The Stars and the audience cheered and applauded.

They also discussed ugly dogs and how they are adorable and lovable. They also talked about basketball, hockey, and if men are sexy wearing make-up (what? No, I like them “rugged” like Carrie Ann and Michael commented).

They also talk of the Grand Canyon Tight Roper (wow, I can’t believe someone would attempt that?) and Kim and Kayne West’s new baby and the name they picked out for her which is “North West” (what do you think of this name? I may be in the minority, but, I kind of like the name. lol).

Stay tuned to this link. They should be uploading footage of this segment a little later.

Talks Are Underway For Dancing With The Stars Season 17, Rumors Of Younger Audience

In a new interview with EnStarz, co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet tells them that talks have began for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. She comments how the cast hasn’t been picked yet, but, she thinks producers are working on it. She also said she’s heard rumors of a younger audience watching the show more than past seasons and then she picks a young celebrity for who she’d like to see dance. She also picks out a few older celebs. More in detail below and at EnStarz.

With production on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars well underway, Enstars spoke to the co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet about what she hopes to see on the dance competition – with one Call Me Maybe singer as a frontrunner.

The mother of four confirmed that production for the new season has already begun, saying the team behind the show “hardly take a break all year.” Though the cast has not yet been picked, she said she thinks producers are in talks of who to bring onto the ABC show.

She has “heard rumors” of a younger audience watching the show going into season 17 than in the past seasons. With that in mind, Burke-Charvet revealed who she would love to see on the show, picking out her favorites.

“It’s always exciting to see a new cast join us, it keeps the energy really fresh,” she said. “I’ve always said I’d like to see Suzanne Summers, Carly Rae Jepsen – I think she would be great – Chris Koffer would be amazing [because] I’m a Glee fan.”

I hope they will won’t forget their older audience too, but, I love the thought of Carly Rae Jepson dancing! I also love the idea of Suzanne Summers and Chris Koffer dancing!!! Let us know what you think of everything Brooke commented about.

Maks Chmerkovskiy Interviewed About Dancing With The Stars And Childhelp

Today, Maks Chmerkovskiy was a guest on Hallmark’s “Home & Family” show. Did you know he turned down the first season of dancing With The Stars? At first, many of the dancers competing at the time thought Dancing With The Stars was a joke.

While being interviewed, they showed clips of Maks dancing with Melissa Gilbert. The interviewers ask him about his temper. He talks of how his bad-boy image is misrepresented on the show and he doesn’t have a temper. He just has a lot of passion.

Maks also answers questions about his dance career. He talks about his youth and growing up with Val. All this and much more at Hallmark including spreading the word for his new cause for Childhelp!!
