Looks like the off season and summer time has been good to Bruno Tonioli!! Wednesday night, the Dancing With The Stars judge was all smiles and darkly tanned as he attended press night for the musical “WAG” at London’s Charing Cross Theatre. Bruno can be seen arm and arm with Sinitta and former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips in some new photos at the event. If interested, you can view them at the Daily Express and The Metro. Getty Images also has some photos.
Among many, MANY other things the man has going on, apparently. According to the LA Times, hosting a TV show, producing two other TV shows and possibly writing a book aren’t enough things to keep Derek busy…he’s apparently coming back to DWTS. When you see who’s backing some of his gigs, you can maybe see why it’s beneficial. Gorgeous and a smart business man too – who knew??
Be sure to read the whole article – it’s chock full of interesting info. An excerpt from the LA Times:
Hough is in talks with a major publisher for a book next year that he hopes will inspire people to realize their full potential. “The book is just my sharing my experiences and anecdotes,” he said.
The TV series, a book and this week’s performances aren’t all that is on his plate. Hough has various production deals in the works, including a scripted series that he and his sister, “DWTS” alum Julianne Hough, are producing for Starz and BBC Worldwide set in the world of competitive ballroom dancing in Blackpool, England.
“We are in the early stages,” Derek Hough said. “We found a writer and we’re very excited.”
He also is executive producer of a GSN pilot for a series called “Dance Rivals,” which revolves around two respected dance studios in Orem, Utah. And Hough hosts an upcoming ABC special, “Family Dance Off,” which featured six families putting on their dancing shoes and competing for prize money. “It’s a really feel-good show,” he said.
Of course, he’ll be back for the new season of “Dancing With the Stars,” which begins Sept. 16. This year, the series has eliminated the often snoozy Tuesday results show and will just air Monday evenings.
Get READY!! With this news, it’s almost time for Pro Watch!!
