PureDWTS Season 17 Jack Osbourne Keeps Smiling And Persevering

“It’s been interesting times as of late,” he (Jack Osbourne) told PEOPLE after Monday’s show. “But, you know, you persevere through it and you keep on smiling and do what you can.”

Don’t you just love some of the messages that some of the celebs have to share with the world every season on Dancing With The Stars? I love when people are fighters and refuse to be a victim. Jack Osbourne talks with People.com about how he’s coping with his health conditions, a recent loss, and dancing on Dancing With The Stars.

“We take it easy,” he said, following his 23-point foxtrot that brought his mom Sharon to tears in the audience.

“I’ve just got to listen to my body and pay attention to where I’m at, and not overdo it. I’ve been trying to get a lot more sleep, which has been good.”

Multiple sclerosis affects the central nervous system. “It could theoretically start playing around with my nerves,” says Osbourne – which could affect everything from his eyesight to his toes.

For now, he’s following his doctor’s orders, which sound perfectly reasonable.

“It’s funny,” he says. “When you get diagnosed, they tell you, ‘Get a good diet. Exercise daily. Sleep a lot. Minimize stress.’ It’s kind of like, shouldn’t everyone do that anyway?

Yep, they sure should!! More at People.com.

Bill Engvall Talks Of Being The Under Dog And Having Fun On Dancing With The Stars

Xfinity asks, “Will comedian Bill Engvall be “Dancing with the Stars” first redneck dancing king?” LOL, I love it! In a new interview with him, they ask him all about his dance Monday night and how it felt. Here is more….

“I felt really good. I think a lot of people are going to be thinking [about me dancing], ‘Really? I didn’t know he could do that,’” Engvall said.

He credited his dance partner Slater, a former troupe member making her “DWTS” pro debut, for making him ballroom-ready. “This little thing took a rough piece of oar and kind of dusted some of the dirt off of it. I was very happy with our performance. I felt our scores could have been higher but I think even [Judge] Len [Goodman] didn’t expect that at all.

“I know it wasn’t perfect. There were bobbles, but overall, I was totally pleased with it,” Engvall said.

Slater admitted, “It took a lot to get Bill to do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ because it was out of his comfort zone. He’s very nervous but he did a really great job.”

The dance pro said “it was a bit of a shock” to find out Engvall had good rhythm!

Engvall smiled, “The only dancing I’ve ever done was with my wife in one arm and a beer in the other hand and that was two-stepping at some little honky-tonk in Texas. This was a whole new ballgame for me. The first part of our training last week, I was so focused and concerned about the steps, that I forgot to dance [and] just let it go. And that’s her biggest challenge with me because I’m a perfectionist and I want to be able to pick up a guitar and play [Eric Clapton’s classic] ‘Layla.’ I don’t want to learn the scales [first]. And so, we’ve been walking through it. She goes, ‘We’ve got to know the steps before we can do [it] to music.’”
