Ready for another Afterbuzz TV Show? Though first, if you haven’t ranked the couples this week, be sure you do so in Courtney’s new Power Rankings Post. Ok…now onto the new Afterbuzz TV show. This time Sharna Burgess joins the panel in discussing week 6 of Dancing With The Stars. She talks of what it was like working with Pitbull for the opening number (which as you know I love loved!). She also helps to review each dance and tells us some fun “behind the scenes” goodies. Sharna also explains at the end what it was like to be chosen as the 13th pro and how easily anyone can be replaced (that would have been so hard to go through). Let us know what you think as always.
Holland America has announced a new Carabbean cruise. Note how Sharna Burgess and Artem Chigvintsev will be joining Kym Johnson, Carson Kressley, and Sabrina Bryan for entertainment and lessons, etc.
SEATTLE, Oct. 14, 2014 /CNW/ — Holland America Line has added the talents of professional dancers Sharna Burgess and Artem Chigvintsev to the remaining two 2014 “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” theme cruises. Both currently performing on the ABC hit show “Dancing with the Stars,” Burgess and Chigvintsev will join ms Westerdam for the theme cruise departing Nov. 29 and the Champions Cruise that sets sail Dec. 6. Both cruises sail roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to the Caribbean.
“Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” brings the excitement and passion of the hit ABC television series to the high seas aboard two Holland America Line Caribbean cruises in November and December this year.
Burgess and Chigvintsev will be joined onboard the “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” cruises by dance professional and Mirrorball Trophy winner Kym Johnson, and celebrities Carson Kressley and Sabrina Bryan.
Each “Dancing with the Stars: At Sea” theme cruise features guest performances from the professional dancers and stars, who dazzle the audience with routines from the television show. Additional events include dance lessons with the ship’s professional dancers, a special fashion show featuring glamorous show costumes and a chance to meet the dance pros and celebrities, ask questions and take photos with them.

This is such a fun interview. Last night, Sharna Burgess was interviewed by her Dancing With The Stars Season 4 partner, Tavis Smiley, on his PBS show. Tavis has nothing but good things to say about Sharna and how she helped him. They go over their dances. Reflecting back, he said he would have voted himself off the show too. He wishes now he had more time to practice. He said his favorite part of doing the show was watching Sharna choreograph. Tavis also says one of his “greatest joy’s in life” was doing Dancing With The Stars. Lots more at this link including Sharna’s dream for her dancing career and the Arts.
More things to make you wonder. First, Sharna Burgess posted the instagram below today (on the day of the Dancing With The Stars promo shoot), with a quote saying: “Big day today thank you @parklanejewelry for my beautiful #infinity necklace and fab ring!! #loveparklanejewellery”. Note that Dancing With The Stars has used Park Lane Jewelry in the past for the show.
Next, we have new pics of the cast arriving for rehearsals from Just Jared Jr. (be sure to see them all. They are awesome!) one of which includes a picture of Sharna wearing Zebra striped pants much like a person who is wearing the same in Mandy Moore’s instagram from the other day. Below is Mandy’s instagram to compare again.
Furthermore (and this could be nothing), but, Sharna is following Tavis Smiley at her twitter account who kind of looks like a person in the photo above with a person wearing Zebra pants. Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up on this follow just in case there could be something in the works.
So, what do you think? Could my mind be working overtime again on a dream come true that Sharna is dancing?? And is it possible she’s dancing with Tavis Smiley? Is that Tavis or Keo in Mandy’s instagram? Let us know what you think in comments.
Hey Dancettes, do you remember the “Ballroom With A Twist” blog written by Lois, and her friend, Kathy, from when they say the show in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on August 10th? Well, Lois sent us sent us some fun “Meet and Greet” pictures for when they met Sharna Burgess and Val Chmerkovskiy. These are adorable and check out Sharna’s face when she didn’t receive a hug too. So cute. Thank you Lois and Kathy for your pictures.
If interested, be sure you see KITV. They have a fun interview up with Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, Sharna Burgess, and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. The Dancing With The Stars pros talk on Ballroom With A Twist and the importance of dancing. This is just part 1. KITV will air Part 2 later.
“All of us travel and do charity work constantly because dance bring smiles to people and that’s the best healing you could ever have,” said Dovolani.
“Dancing has always been a very healthy activity, no only physically, but for your mind and soul. You see people come out of the dance studio happy. Tired in a good way,” said Smirnoff. “So, this is one of the things we do during the show. We want the audience to get up and actually start moving with us because that gift, that passion for dancing is for all of us. We want to be able to share it with people that love the show and love ‘Ballroom With A Twist’ and, for us, it is the opportunity to do it.”

We here at PureDWTS could not be more devastated and saddened to learn Sharna Burgess has not been picked as a pro for Dancing With The Stars Season 19. If you need a way to voice this like we do, please fill in the blank in comments and maybe producers will hear our cries!!
We love and will miss Sharna Burgess on Dancing With The Stars and here is why: _______________(fill in the blank).
…..BECAUSE Miss Sharna is one the most lovely, most passionate, most powerful, and most creative choreographers and dancers this show has ever ever had. I will miss her greatly because she is also one of us. She is a caring person and she truly truly cares about everyone. She will forever be one of my most favorite dancers that was ever produced. These pictures say it all for me. Please TPTB, find a way to her include her on this show.
