At E Online, you can hear more of the interview with Dancing With The Stars Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas. They talk on costuming, whether Mark is leaving the show, their performances, the competition, and much more. If you missed part one of this interview see this previous post.
First of all…just a little update on Alfonso Ribeiro. Good Morning America featured some clips of him in rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars from this past week (and from last night?). It’s still unknown whether he will dance or not. You can watch it at this link.
Also, in some other news…. Is Dancing With The Stars planning a special 10th Anniversary Show? According to this blog, there might be something in the works as they filmed a “promo” for it during Dynamic Duo week. Cool if true? I wonder when it will be aired? Thanks to Lori for the heads up!! Check out the blog it has some cool pictures.
Before the show began they filmed a quick promo for the upcoming 10th Anniversary of the show.
ETA: Here is another blog which is featuring some footage of what they performed for the promo. Be sure to read the link for more. Lori thanks…you are on a roll…
Janel Parrish has written a new blog at People. She talks on last week’s experience on Dancing With The Stars. Here’s a sneak peek for tonight’s dances…
This week we have a paso doble and an Argentine tango. The paso doble is going to be very powerful and passionate, and the Argentine tango is going to be softer and more romantic. It’s going to be fun and I’m really excited.
It’s been a crazy week because I’m back to work on Pretty Little Liars filming my Mona flashbacks for the finale. It’s been a little bit hectic, but Val’s been great about being flexible about my schedule, and we fit in rehearsal times whenever we could.
This week’s theme is “plugged/unplugged,” so we’re all doing one song – a regular version and then we’re doing the same song but an acoustic version. My song is Calvin Harris’s “Blame,” so I’m looking forward to showing two completely different sides of the same song.
Only two more weeks and I’m on vacay from DWTS for a bit. Turkey, champagne, stuffing, beer….lord, I can’t wait. I’m going to read books, play video games, watch TV….ahhh. And all I want for Christmas is for Janel to be eliminated SOON. I don’t expect to get my one wish, but you can’t get them if you don’t make them.

Tommy and Peta (Song: “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell
Janel and Val (Song: “Blame” by Calvin Harris
Sadie and Mark (Song: “Problem” by Arianna Grande
Bethany and Derek (Song: “I Want You Back” by the Jackson Five
The odds makers at Sports Bovada have made their new predictions for the semi-finals of Dancing With The Stars Season 19. Take a look below and see if you agree with them and then let us know what you think in comments.
Alfonso Ribeiro 1/2
Janel Parrish 4/1
Bethany Mota 7/1
Sadie Robertson 15/1
Tommy Chong 25/1
My thoughts: It seems the odds makers have been a mixed bag all season, but, one thing is definite. They won’t budge on their choice for Alfonso Ribeiro being the winner. Although I love Alfonso, I’m not too sure he’s going to win especially with injuries plaguing him. I think it’s going to be between Bethany and Sadie who wins. I also get a really strong feeling on Sadie, but, I will tell you more on that in DonaMadrina and I’s Finals Numerology and Astrology post. As for their prediction for Tommy leaving this week, they are probably right, but, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Janel go instead.
Let’s see what Miss Heidi and Court think….
Heidi: Man, they do this every season – they should just hang it up. All they do is go by the scores. They might have Bethany right – would not be surprised to see her take third. But Sadie in 4th place??? I think that girl is going to give Alfonso a SERIOUS run for his money. She’s a natural, she’s extremely likable – hell, her crying last week made ME cry! I’m almost at the point of calling it Sadie’s trophy for real – but it’s too close. I would say it’s a three way race between Beth, Alfonso and Sadie and that Beth is a distant third in that trio.
Courtney: Alfonso WILL remain in the competition, and he WILL win. I’m willing it to happen Ugh…even the oddsmakers are buying into the Janel hype. I can tell you this much: demographically, I think Sadie is annihilating Janel in terms of votes – I’d stake my life on it. At this point, I think Alfonso & Sadie end up as the final two, regardless – and I pick Alfonso by a slight margin, simply because I don’t trust the judges to not lowball Sadie. I think Janel & Bethany duke it out for 3rd & 4th – maybe Bethany with a slight advantage. I think it would take nothing short of a miracle for Tommy to make the finale.
Week 10 of Dancing with the Stars Season 19 is upon us. If you’re not a Pure DWTS Insider yet, you can do so here. If you are, then I look forward to seeing your DWTS score predictions in the comments.

Dancing With The Stars Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas were interview by E Online. Sadie talks of how much Candace Cameron Bure has helped her and more. Video and pictures below. You can also read more on this interview at E Online. Another one of my favorite couples this season…
It’s “definitely going to be a brawl in the last two rounds,” Ballas dished to E! News when he and Robertson stopped by the studio on Friday, where they also chatted about Sadie’s headline-making costumes (for more on Sadie’s Duck Dynasty-approved looks, be sure to watch E! News tonight).
But despite killing much of their competition, Sadie admitted that she’s far more nervous now that it’s down to the final five couples. So who did she turn to after experiencing a memory slip on stage last week? None other than Mark Ballas’ former partner (and fellow conservative star!) Candace Cameron Bure.
