PureDWTS Season 24, Week 3 – Did Michelle Visage Accidentally Spill the Beans on Charo’s Elimination???

I’m labeling this one as a big “make of it what you will”, because I’m not 100% clear on what conclusions we could draw from it…

About 40ish minutes into tonight’s show, one of our readers, Nathan, noticed a strange tweet from Michelle Visage, Rupaul bosom buddy and one of the judges from Rupaul’s Drag Race.

Now normally, I wouldn’t think much of this, since it’s possible she could have read some article or blog predicting it would be Charo that got the axe.  But considering that Ru himself was in the audience last week, cheering on Charo (who he’s known for years), is it possible that Michelle might have had some inside info? The original tweet has since been deleted, but you can still see some of her responses.

Given that Charo allegedly was threatening to quit last week, is it maybe possible that she opted to bow out…and this was how they saved face? By pretending she actually got eliminated? Or did they maybe just give her a heads-up that she was out, in the hopes that she played nice tonight? It could be nothing, but the source and the timing did seem a bit fishy to me.

Thoughts?

DWTS Season 24, WEEK THREE – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

As I said in the “Who’s Dancing…” post, I can’t imagine anything worse than Vegas Night. Hopefully a few of the couples (and Derek and Julianne!!) will prove my imagination and worries unfounded. 🙂

t-minus 15 minutes…

Well, call me crazy, but I liked that opening number. I liked how they had the celebs well integrated and how they were all doing different aspects of Vegas…especially David and Sasha as dueling Elvis’s. 🙂

Man, Nick going first? Better spot…but they’re determined to have him be underscored, I think. Good on Maks for the pep talk!! Nicely done.

Yay!! Nick did a pretty darn good job on that one. A few shaky spots – head turns could have been sharper. Len come ON – that was full of content!! 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. :-)

Why No DWTS Promo Rant For Derek Hough’s Return, “Elastic Heart” Part 2 Preview

In Tom Bergeron’s latest facebook chat, Linz asked him why there hasn’t been any promotion for Derek Hough’s return to the ballroom? Geez….remember all the times in the past when TPTB would have promos and commercials for Maks Chmerkovksiy’s return to the ballroom? Don’t get me wrong, I loved those promos for Maks, but, why isn’t the show doing the same for Derek who has won 6 Mirror Balls (the most of anyone) and who is a 2 time Emmy winner for this show …and also much loved by fans? What’s more, and just like Linz just wrote to me, you’d think they’d want to promote the show even more being the College Basketball Finals are up against it tonight? Pretty sad. Thanks for listening to our rant and here’s to Derek and Julianne’s “Move Beyond” ‘Elastic Heart’ Part 2 performance tonight. Special Dedication and preview below courtesy of Derek’s Instagram…..

Daniela Gschwendtner And Steven Lee Chat On The Ins And Outs Of Costume Designing For DWTS

Rarely do we get to hear from the costume designers Of Dancing With The Stars, but, here is Daniela Gschwendtner and Steven Lee talking with TV Insider about the designs they are the most proud of (I love what they said on Mark Ballas!) and a horror story too….

What designs are you most proud of?
Lee: We’ve always liked the theme nights like movie-themed or Disney night. Those are fun because we get to make our own interpretation. When we did The Little Mermaid’s Ursula with Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy, Val was the eel. We were like, ‘How do you make Val an eel?’ We ended up doing this shirt with scales on it.

Gschwendtner: We like doing something where you obviously can’t do it how its drawn. Otherwise you can’t dance in it, or it’ll look like a hokey, weird Halloween costume. It needs to seem stylish and cool, and I think those are the best challenges.

Lee: We’ve always liked Mark Ballas for these. He’s not with us this season, but he always gets creative. For Alice in Wonderland he’s been the White Rabbit, Woody in Toy Story, he’s been a ninja, a peacock, Adam of Adam & Eve – he does so much. We love that. It’s also cool that he lets us do our thing and not get in the way. I think when people over-think it, like too many cooks in the kitchen, it gets a little messy, but he just lets us do our job. Those are the most fun though, the ones with the themes.

Do you have any live-show horror stories?
Gschwendtner: Last season, Gleb Savchenko stepped on Jana Kramer’s skirt during dress rehearsal and he absolutely destroyed it—it ripped completely in half. We had to make a completely new skirt right before the show!

Erika Jayne Interviewed On Dancing With The Stars, Vegas Night Teasers With Gleb Savchenko

Erika Jayne spoke to US Weekly about how she’s feeling about Dancing With The Stars so far. Here is what she told them….

“I love it. It’s great. It’s a challenge — every week you learn something new,” Jayne, 45, told Us. “You form a bond with your partner and you get out there and perform on Monday nights live.”

When asked whether the high-energy ballroom practices have been difficult, the singer assured Us that it’s nothing she can’t handle. “I knew it was tough,” she said. “I knew it was going to be a challenge … I take a couple of Aleve and I’m pretty good. So far so good.”

Good luck, Guys! More at US Weekly. Also, below are some fun instagrams for Vegas Night from Gleb Savchenko.
