DWTS Jack Osbourne Writes Touching Piece On “Dancing With Multiple Sclerosis”

At his facebook page today, Jack Osbourne wrote about what dancing has been like while having Multiple Sclerosis. He hasn’t had any severe symptoms, other than “the odd bit of tingling down his leg and an occasional bout of fatigue”. At the same time, he’s “holding his breath” because you never know what tomorrow will bring. More below and at the link. A must read and full of heart!! I am so glad Jack danced this season. Between he and Valerie Harper, I think we’ve all learned an important life lesson we weren’t expecting.

The truth of the matter is, today I’m good. I’m feeling strong and confident in my ability to continue on. It’s funny, no matter how much information there is out there about MS, it still carries a negative stigma. Nowadays if you find a treatment that works for you, you exercise regularly, eat right, and take care of yourself, you really can have a chance at a relatively symptom free life. (I use the term relatively loosely)

I’m not saying everyone with MS can do DWTS, but it doesn’t mean you can’t set an achievable goal and strive to achieve it everyday. No matter who you are or what you struggle with, that is something we are all capable of. And right now my goal is to win that mirrorball trophy.

The interesting thing about DWTS is that it is a competition of progress, it slowly ramps up it’s intensity as every week goes by, so although you hit the ground running, you don’t hit the ground sprinting (that’s this week).

I’m ready to sprint. I owe a lot of that to my partner Cheryl Burke. Cheryl believes in me in a way that has made me believe in myself. In my moments of doubt, I know that Cheryl always has my back.

I can’t quite put into words how moved I am by all the people who have reached out to me online. It truly means a lot. ***Just know this, if that day does come where I do win this mirrorball, know that I didn’t just win it for me, but I won it for all of us with MS.***

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS Season 17, Week 7 – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Well, I can’t believe we’re in week 7…and we still have 8 celebrities.   I don’t know if dance order is so important at this point, and particularly not this season.  Also, everyone has been VERY quiet today – I expect they’ll all start blabbing as soon as I leave to go out with my friends. :-)

ETA: Vogue here and we have our first update. Yep, as soon as Heidi took off, some dance orders were announced.

ETA2: According to a new tweet by @DancingABC, it’s possible Derek might not be able to dance tonight due to an injury. Stay tuned and let’s hope he’s ok. For more updates, see Pure Derek Hough.

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 Cast And Pros Attend Halloween Parties Over The Weekend

This is too fun if you haven’t seen some of these pics yet. Some of the pros and cast members of Dancing With The Stars dressed up to attend some Halloween Parties in the last several days. Snooki attended the “Night Of The Living Drag” at Providence in New York City while Derek Hough, Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy (along with their friend Alex Sanders who provided the pic below at twitter. Kate Upton was there too) attended the Casamigos Halloween Party at the home of Mike Meldman in Beverly Hills, California. You can view more pictures of them all at Pure Derek Hough, Zimbio Pictures, and The Daily Mail. Don’t they look fantastic? Former pro Julianne Hough has made some headlines with this costume too. If you know of anyone else who dressed up, let us know in comments.

ETA: Derek Hough also attended Kate Hudson’s Halloween Party last night. You can view some big photos in high quality at Pure Derek Hough at this link.
