DWTS Season 18, Week 5: Who’s Dancing What…and When?? (SPOILERS)

Disney week? Okay. I’m not as jazzed as everyone else, but I do like Prince Charming. But just who is going to BE Prince Charming – that is the question. :-) Actually, it might be obvious from the list below….

And Courtney got her Wish!!! :-D

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. :-)

Executive Producer Conrad Green To Exit Dancing With The Stars

Ya know… Conrad Green has received a lot of negativity because of all the changes to the show this season (and the last season), but, I don’t want him to leave Dancing With The Stars. Like it or not, he’s helped to keep this a popular show and I love it even when I’m not happy sometimes with some changes, etc. Here is more from Deadline about him leaving Dancing With The Stars.

“I’m enormously proud of everything we’ve achieved on Dancing with the Stars,” he told Deadline. “This has been the job of a lifetime and I’m thankful for every performance, every dancer and every colleague I’ve worked with over the years, and to ABC and BBC Worldwide Prods. for these past eighteen seasons. What was once a small dancing show has thrived and become a cultural phenomenon. But after almost 10 years, the opportunity to take on a project with the immense potential of Utopia was simply too good to pass up. The ambition and scale of the challenge is thrilling. I’ll miss everyone I’ve worked with on Dancing With the Stars and look forward to this next exciting chapter.”

For more, see Deadline. Thanks to Lisa for the heads up!

PureDWTS Guest Poem For DWTS18 Week 4: “The Grand Switch-Up Ball”

Lois always has a way of summing up the dances every week in her wonderful poems and here she is again…

THE GRAND SWITCH-UP BALL

Welcome to the Grand Switch Up, Come On, Come All
Ballroom doors wide open for The Grand Switch-up Ball

The cards were dealt, the dancers shaken up like dice
Meeting different partners and breaking the dancing ice

The entire cast performed a sparkling dance so divine
Audience roared in approval for the switched-up nine

Charlie and Peta united for a Rumba of grand majesty
Sexy, sultry, stunning, mirror image, a grand sight to see

Danica and Maks Jive, shining, beaming bright light
A kicky, sparky, tricky dance illuminating up the night

James and Cheryl Tango burning hot, fierce, and mean
Powerful, precise, like a passion play that set the scene

Drew and Witney Cha-Chaed, ready and rarin’ to go
Drew was the splendid Sugar Daddy of the Grand Show

Amy and Mark Salsaed to a swingy, shaking Salsa beat
Shaken and stirred, sensational, so special and so neat

Candace and Tony Quickstepped with rocking energy
Grand speed across the floor, a hair raising sight to see

Meryl and Val Argentine Tango, the dance of the night
Magical instruments of perfection, grand seductive sight

Cody and Sharna Foxtrotted with gusto in the Grand Ball
With swagger, with the voice of Cody, giving it their all

NeNe and Derek’s Jazz, a joyous razz-ma-tazzy treat
Quirky perky Beyoncé trip, audience out of their seat

Macy’s Stars of Dance, Derek Hough dynamic creation
Splendid, stupendous stars, Paso, Flamenco sensation

The Grand Switch-Up Ball, dancers mixed up just fine
Next Monday night will return couples to the original nine!

Written By Lois A Troutman, April 8, 2014

THE GRAND SWITCH-UP BALL, THE COUPLES WERE SHAKEN LIKE DICE!
THE CREATIONS OF THE SHAKEN UP COUPLES TURNED OUT RATHER NICE!

Former DWTS Co-Host Samantha Harris To Have Double Mastectomy

Be thinking and sending positive thoughts and prayers to Samantha Harris. According to People, the former co-host of dancing With The Stars has to have a double mastectomy. Sad! I hope she’s going to be ok!

Samantha Harris reveals that later this month she will undergo surgery for a double mastectomy to treat breast cancer.

In a routine self-examination last fall, Harris, 40, detected a lump in her right breast. She had a clean mammogram shortly before but something still didn’t feel right, so she saw a breast cancer specialist months later.

A needle biopsy and later lumpectomy led to a diagnosis Harris that did not expect: breast cancer.

“It felt like an elephant was sitting on my chest,” the former Dancing with the Stars co-host says of the news.
