Oh, this is fun! Entertainment Tonight interviewed Karina Smirnoff and Cheryl Burke in Las Vegas at the POM Juice Blends Event! They give even more hints on their new Dancing With The Stars partners…including their names (but, I can’t tell if they are serious on their names or not? Hilarious). They both rave how great the cast is and how they never had to “google” anyone this time. Interesting. More below. Also, if you haven’t seen our previous posting with Karina and Cheryl from this event, you can do so at this link.
UPDATE: Take a look below at who Karina is now following….and it’s not a person named “Ryan”. Thanks to reader Jen for the heads up.
Awww, this will make Court sad. According to USA Today, Indy champ Tony Kanaan still hasn’t received a call to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 17, and yet, it’s still possible he could get a call. Below is more….
“I might be getting a call, but I won’t know until right before they announce it,” Kanaan told USA TODAY Sports on Friday during a break in preparation for Sunday’s Grand Prix of Baltimore. “It’s so confidential. They want to keep the announcement a secret. They don’t like leaks, so I really don’t know.”
Kanaan said he won’t be disappointed if he doesn’t make the cut.
“To be honest, I won’t be unhappy if it doesn’t happen,” Kanaan said. “With all the things we have going on, I cannot afford to take off for however many weeks it would take. If they call me, I’ll do it, but right now it’s a busy time of my life.”
Sad, as I hoping he would dance too. Then again, maybe he might? All eyes on Wednesday, All, and be sure to read the full article at USA Today.
ABC Media Net has released a press statement for who will be guests on next week’s Good Morning America. As you know, the cast announcement for Dancing With The Stars Season 17 takes place on September 4th. There was some talk that maybe only Tom Bergeron would be there this time and then he would just announce the new cast. Not true! The new cast will all be there in attendance and, what’s more, they will be taking questions from the audience. Below is more…
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4 – The exciting new cast of “Dancing with the Stars” will be revealed live on “GMA,” with the celebrity couples and their pro dance partners taking questions from viewers.

Dancing With The Stars pros Cheryl Burke and Karina Smirnoff helped to celebrate and launch ‘POM Juice Blends’ at the Encore Beach Club at The Wynn in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday. According to Herald Online, “The dancers led the record-breaking stunt as revelers kept a beach ball in the air for 125 consecutive passes without letting the ball touch the ground.” Awesome awesome! And they both looked incredible too!! Check out a slew of pictures at Getty Images.
