Remember when Mark Ballas And BC Jean posted the coolest “behind the scenes” video of their Head High tour at their Official Alexander Jean You Tube (if you don’t, see here). Well below is Part 2. I can’t get enough of these two.
This is a cool interview with Dancing With The Stars Witney Carson. It’s an older interview, but, fun regardless. Witney talks of where she sees herself in 10 years. She also gives dance advice and more. Special thanks to Kristyn Burtt for the interview. Kristyn also writes about it at Dance Dish.
Last night was the last show for Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas’ and BC Jean’s “Head High” tour. Dancing With The Stars Keo Motsepe, Allison Holker attended as well as Bethany Mota. Casey Abrams also made a special appearance (omg, does he have wicked hair now or what? 8O). Shirley Ballas was there too. Below are some photos and videos (be sure to click “read more” as there are lots). Let’s hope the “King and Queen of Hearts” tour again real soon!!

Wanya Morris Writes On His Experience On Dancing With The Stars, Encourages Everyone To Step Out Of Their Comfort Zone
Usually we don’t post on the celebrities after a season is over on Dancing With The Stars, but, we couldn’t help posting on Wanya Morris. He wrote a new blog for the Las Vegas Review Journal on his time and experience on Dancing With The Stars. He’s so thankful he danced. Read on to see why and how he encourages everyone to step out of their comfort zone and more.
I worked hard to perfect the final two routines. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go, but if it was going to be my last night, I wanted to make sure that it was my best performance yet for the fans. My final performances were memorable ones, and when all three judges held up 10’s, I was elated.
Although I didn’t make it to the finals, I wouldn’t have changed a thing! Not only did I try my best and worked as hard as I ever had, I also did something new, faced the challenge and got so much out of it.
The things that scare us, or we find most difficult, are what make us stronger and better people. I was out of shape and one of the older contestants, but my drive allowed me to persevere.
I now have some unbelievable friends and a new passion that I am continuing. I encourage all of you to step out of your comfort zone and do something you aren’t sure you can achieve. It could be one of the greatest experiences of your life.
For all the fans who have supported me over the years and voted every Monday night, I want to thank you. I appreciate every single one of you.

Be sure to pick up this week’s issue of People Magazine. Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba is featured in it with a story on her and her pet rescues. Cute teaser below.

ETA: People now has part of the special feature published online. You can view it in full and see a really sweet photo here. Carrie Ann’s smile says it all!
Carrie Ann Inaba had already rescued her 10-year-old chow chow/Chihuahua/pug mix, Peanut, when she was introduced to Lola and Buddy, now both 2 and half years old.
“One of the organizations I work with sent me a picture of these two dogs that needed to be adopted out, but they were going to separate them,” the Dancing With the Stars judge, 48, tells PEOPLE. “I looked at them and I was like, ‘They only have each other in this world.’ “
Inaba (who is wearing a T-shirt from Dirtee Hollywood’s The Animal Project collection) was planning on fostering them until she could find a home that would take both pups.
“But as soon as I fostered them, I failed at the foster, and I now have three dogs!” she says.
