And it was a great interview!! If you want to see more about Derek’s appearances today to promote Taking the Lead, hit up PureDerekHough!
What an interesting “scoop” from Kristyn Burtt last night. She reports that Rob Wade, the new executive producer of Dancing With The Stars, has met with “all the talent” this summer….even those with long time contracts that we haven’t seen before. Could this mean a shake up of new pros? Take a listen and then see a new question for you after the video….
So, if they were considering hiring some pros from the past, who do you hope that would be?
First of all, GLEB SAVCHENKO!! Please bring him back!! I’d love to see Julianne Hough and Kym Johnson return as well. I also liked Anna Trebunskaya, Lacey Schwimmer, and Edyta Sliwinkska too! And remember Sonny Fredie Pedersen? I thought he was excellent in the troupe. He recently caught up with Sasha Farber and says he will see him soon.
And speaking of Gleb and Anna, they are very much out there dancing. Here’s a new video of them getting ready to dance at the Vail International Dance Festival. *sigh*
Like with a previous reporting with Cheryl Burke over the off season, now the NY Daily News via Cheryl Burke is reporting that we will be seeing less of Len Goodman in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Here is more….
We’re going to be seeing less of “Dancing With the Stars” judge Len Goodman. Industry gossips had said the show’s longtime regular planned to skip some episodes next season, and Goodman even has hinted he may not return at all. Cheryl Burke, one of the dancers in the ABC hit, confirmed to Confidenti@l that Goodman, who also appears on the U.K. version of the show, is lightening his workload.
“I know that he is probably going to be missing a few shows next season because of the traveling back and forth,” Burke told us, “but I do not know if he is leaving just yet.” “I get it,” she said of the septuagenarian, who has been jetting between London and L.A. for nearly a decade. “Especially when you are 120 years old, it just sucks,” she added with a smile. At the end of last season, Goodman said after watching Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis’ winning performance: “This might be my last season, and if it is, I couldn’t wish for a better dance to watch to finish up with.”
