DWTS Season 18, Week 7 – Let’s Recap Tonight’s Show (Spoilers)

I’d like to start by thanking our regular readers, the casual readers and our haters. ;-) Our page views have never been higher. So thanks. For some of you, I doubt this was what you intended. LOL.

Some of you who are fond of copying our stuff and then claiming we don’t know jack are in for a bit of a disappointment. I already know what three of the couples are dancing next week and if you behave yourselves, I might just share. Soon. :-)

Now, on with the show. Tonight’s drinking game is about Danica. How often will they mention, pimp or otherwise exaggerate her injury that sources say isn’t as bad as is being portrayed? Take a shot every time. DOUBLE shot for words to that effect out of Danica’s mouth…Triple shot for Val. Do NOT send me your rehab bill. :-D I’m paying for my own since I’ve been doing a shot every time someone is kissing Meryl’s ass in the comments. It beats back nausea. HA! Read more..

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. :-)

DWTS Val Chmerkovskiy Writes Of The Most Challenging Week Of The Season

Val Chmerkovskiy tells Today that this past has been it’s been it’s most challenging from them all this season on Dancing With The Stars. The workload has increased because of the team dance. Also, Thursday they found out his partner Danica McKellar has a broken rib. Here is more…

I would say last week has been the most challenging week of the season for different reasons. The workload has increased with a group dance and the pressure is higher. It’s already been two and a half months of grueling work that has taken both a mental and a physical toll. I’m doing my best with Danica when it comes to playing both sides of the fence. I’m accommodating to her physical pain and troubles, but I understand there’s a job to be delivered every Monday.

The problem is we found out on Thursday that Danica has a fractured rib. It’s a big problem. I’m responsible for her and progress, but most importantly her well-being. It’s very hard for me not to blame myself a little bit — if not a lot of it.

This is a pain that Danica’s had since week two. We tried a couple of lifts this week while rehearsing and we heard a “pop” and then it was over. The pain was so bad she started crying. We went to the hospital for another X-ray. She has a fractured rib.

We didn’t even practice on Thursday. That night, we flew out to Washington, D.C., for a science and engineering conference that she’s on the panel for. She’s doing some lectures and a book signing. We have a huge salsa number and a huge team dance. It’s not looking good right now.

We have an amazing team for our team dance, which consists of Candace Cameron-Bure, who had to travel on Wednesday, and Meryl Davis, who had to travel on Thursday, also. Derek Hough and Amy Purdy are on the team, too. I’m not worried about the team dance. I know we’re going to pull that together as a collective unit. We’ll create something amazing. As far as Danica’s solo performance, that’s all on her and me. We’ll see. We’re going to go day by day.

Peta Murgatroyd Writes About Her And James Maslow’s Sexy Samba And More

It’s good to hear from the James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd camp! Peta writes all about rehearsals and their dances tonight at People.com. She says their Samba will be ‘very sexy’. Here is more…

We’re dancing to a very sexy samba song. We have a little hip-hop section at the start, which is cool, and then we break into samba for the rest of the dance, so it’s going to be exciting. Some layers of clothing might come off! James is excited about the routine and we have some great costumes this week.

We’re just trying to have fun and impress the judges every week and show that we are improving. James tries so hard with his technique. He’s putting in so many hours to lock in the technique, and samba is – for me and for most people – the hardest Latin dance. I think he’s dealing with it really well, but yet there’s definitely some pressure.

James and I are always there for one another, and we try to do activities outside of rehearsals as well to keep things fun. We go to the movies, we get dinner, we get lunch. Work is work – when we’re in rehearsals, we’re working six to seven hours, and then we can go and do what we like, so it’s a good balance of both. We have a great level of respect and discipline when we’re in the studio, and we just like to get work done.
