If interested, be sure you pre-order your copy at a special price at Amazon. No doubt …this will be a ‘must read’ and a great gift for dancing and Derek Hough fans!

Isn’t this a great Christmas photo? According to Cheryl’s twitter, she is spending the holiday in Maui, Hawaii with her family. The pic above is from her hotel. Also, there are some fun new shots of Cheryl soaking in the sun at the Daily Mail. She looks gorgeous in a gold bikini and black kafton. Even without an ounce of make-up, she glows just like she did this past season on Dancing With The Stars.
Also, have you ever seen Cheryl’s home at Christmas? We posted this last year around this time, but, it’s fun to take a look at it again.
It’s the off season and so we like to do fun things to keep us distracted while we wait for the next season of DWTS. Right before last season, one of our Pure DWTS Insiders suggested we do a list ranking the hottest DWTS pros. I thought it was a great idea, but didn’t think it was right to just publish a list based on my own preferences. Instead, I want to reach out to you to get an idea of how hot you think each DWTS pro is on a scale of 1-5.
I’ll regularly post 2 new pros for you to vote and comment on. Then, after posting all the pros, I’ll take all the data and publish a list of the hottest Male and Female Dancing with the Stars pros. Keep this in mind as you rate. There’s no need to start your ratings at 4 like they do on the show. Get the idea?
Be sure to browse plenty of the pictures of Alec and Anna so you can offer a fair rating. Yes, the above voting is for hot. Feel free to hash out the difference in hot, beautiful, elegant, sexy, etc etc etc in the comments.
Also, remember that this is just for fun and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Although quite frankly all of the dancers on DWTS are hot, just different degrees of hotness. So none of them really have anything to complain about.
According to Today, Tom Bergeron will help the “Golden Sisters” reflect on their best moments this past year in a tv special which will air Friday, Dec. 27 at 10 p.m. ET on OWN. Here is some more info and thanks to Lori for sending. This is sure to be a hoot!
It’s been a year packed with amusements, shockers and a whole lot of twerking, and now the gals from the “Golden Sisters” are ready to put their unique spin on all of it in their first year-end special.
“Golden Sisters 2013 Countdown: Best Pop Culture Moments” will see Mary Bartnicki, Josie Cavaluzzi and Teresa Dahlquist joined by host Tom Bergeron (“Dancing With the Stars,” “America’s Funniest Home Videos”) and a special celebrity guest for night of sassy reflection, TODAY is revealing.
The ladies will offer “irreverent reflections on the newsmakers that made headlines” as only they can.

DWTS Peta Murgatroyd To Judge American Red Cross of Northeast Wisconsin’s Dancing with Our Stars 2014
This is fun…and cool too since it’s for a charity event. According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, Dancing With The Stars Peta Murgatroyd is going to judge Green Bay, Wisconsin’s version of Dancing With The Stars. Note how she will be performing as well in a “Polka With Peta” dance. Below is more…
Peta Murgatroyd, who teamed with former Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver to win Season 14 of ABC-TV’s “Dancing with the Stars,” will serve as a celebrity judge this February for the local version of the show.
The American Red Cross of Northeast Wisconsin’s “Dancing with Our Stars 2014” event features 11 community members, known as “star dancers.” The dancers compete to raise the most money and take home the coveted Fundraising Mirror Ball Trophy.
Murgatroyd joins fellow judges Chris Roth of WBAY-TV, Channel 2 and Nick Vitrano of WIXX (101.1 FM). They will verbally critique and privately score each dance. At the end of the night those scores will be combined to determine the winner.
Among the unique experiences connected to Murgatroyd’s appearance is the “Polka with Peta” in which someone attending the event will take center stage that night and perform the official Wisconsin state dance with the celebrity judge.
DWTS Karina Smirnoff Celebrates Muscle & Fitness Magazine Launch With Joe Manganiello And Arnold Schwazenegger
Awww, so cute as always! Last night, Dancing With The Stars pro Karina Smirnoff attended a Muscle & Fitness Magazine party to celebrate it’s launch with Joe Manganiello at Tru Hollywood Nightclub in Hollywood, California. You can see some fun pics of her with Joe at Zimbio Pictures. The Daily Mail has a nice write-up and pics on the event as well. Note how Karina talked with Arnold Schwazenegger who was there also. Wouldn’t it be a cool “get” if TPTB could get Arnold or Joe on Dancing With The Stars?
