The DWTS Finalists on GMA Live Stream (Video)

GMA did a live stream tonight with Tony and Melissa talking to all the finalists. This is where we are getting tiny little glimpses of what their judges redo dances might be. So far, Bindi MIGHT have quickstep and Carlos MIGHT have foxtrot. Lindsay apparently straight up said they were doing Waltz.

Tony picks Bindi and all I hear is Peta blasting NICK IS REALLY GOOD. LOL…at least Tony has no bias in this one. :-)

First up is Alek and Lindsay, followed by Bindi and Derek and the rest. Lindsay talks alot about the dances and their freestyle. Sounds like it’s going to be lift heavy, which is his strong suit but which may backfire.

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. :-)

“Who Will Make it to the Finale?” DWTS Promo for Week 10

Well, they *sorta* make it sound like they will eliminate someone on Monday, but I don’t believe them. Listen to how it’s all worded. And of course they are still beating the Tamar horse. :::rolls eyes::: The thing you have to remember is that they could be referring to the finale *night* which would be Tuesday, not Monday.

Bindi Irwin at the DWTS Rehearsal Studios – Photos and Video

The Daily Mail has a few cute photos of Bindi and her boyfriend Chandler, apparently from yesterday. They also have this video from Today in Australia. Confession time – there are times when I don’t see every video that Vogue posts because of my traveling plus my share of the website duties. So, it’s entirely possible that she posted this before and I missed it. And, in addition to all that, my memory sucks at times. :-)

Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson Talk DWTS Week 10 and Alexa on Fox 11 (Video)

You heard it here – Carlos and Witney don’t think Alexa will be back and they believe they will be given a third dance to do on this coming Monday night. I guess that’s better than filling with mindless drama fluff…but damn.

Thanks to Heart for sharing this with us! This is the video we’ve been discussing in comments where Alek is blushing when talking about Emma. So cute. :-)

Why Paula Deen Is Scared to Dance with Mark Ballas (Video)

Dancing with the Stars released this fun video to People Magazine of Paula finding out her partner is Mark – and I absolutely LOVE it. I think they are so cute together and they both are cracking me up. Go Team Butterballs!! Side note: I think Mark has the best last name for making team names with. Everything is about “balls” – which is pretty much the way it should be. 😉

Bindi Irwin and Hayes Grier Nae Nae for DWTS Season 21

These are fun little videos although neither of them look particularly comfortable doing it. That’s okay – most humans aren’t. :-) Especially on camera. Derek and Emma might have their work cut out for them. 😉

PureDWTS: Cheryl Burke on The Boris & Nicole Show, Reveals Her Original Season 18 Partner

Hope everyone has been enjoying their summer :-) Thought I’d share this little ditty that fell into my lap entirely by accident yesterday, as I was making my morning cup o’ coffee in my office break room while half-listening to the janky tv in there that constantly cuts out and only seems to get random channels…

…Cheryl appeared on The Boris & Nicole Show yesterday, which premiered on Monday and is having a 4-week trial run on FOX.  She chatted about her activewear line, her stint on I Can Do That, her backing out of judging Miss USA, and memories from DWTS.  Full episode is below, and Cheryl’s segment starts around the 22:00 mark.  What I found most interesting, though, was the revelation she dropped about her season 18 partner – turns out Drew Carey was a replacement for someone else:

“Let me tell you guys about Boris over here. He was supposed to be my partner, then he backed out – or chickened out – then, guess who my partner was. And I love him – DREW CAREY! Drew Carey is great, but I think [Boris] and I might have lasted a little longer!”

So yeah, Cheryl’s original season 18 partner was supposed to be Soul Food actor Boris Kodjoe, and Drew only entered the equation after Boris backed out.  I loved Drew & Cheryl together, but I can’t help but be curious about how a Boris & Cheryl partnership might have turned out.  Or who knows – maybe Boris might still be available for a future season! The little bit of hip action he showed in the segment that followed was decent enough. What do you guys think?

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

Emma Slater Talks to Perez TV about Noah, Robert and a Naked Derek

I just love this girl  – so down to earth and fun. This is a nice, full interview where she talks all about DWTS, including Derek stripping down on the dance floor.
