Wow, if I had known Tristan MacManus was going to be in Denver, I would have made a trip to go see him. Below he talks about his new role in the hit stage production of “Ballroom With A Twist” with 7 News Denver!! He also talks about Dancing With The Stars!
This is an interesting interview with former Dancing With The Stars co-host Samantha Harris and Huffpost Live. Samantha talks of what it was like when she first heard she was going to co-host Dancing With The Stars in the day. She mentions how they had double the viewers at the time compared to the viewers the show has now, but, times are different for television now too. She explains more below and for why she thinks the show will still be around for a while with the new changes coming.
Ok, so you’ve had a chance to let us know your Celebrity Cast Wishes for Dancing With The Stars Season 17, but, what about your DANCE PRO WISHES for the new season? As most of you know, they are downsizing the show to only one night next season, so will this mean they downsize the number of couples too? I don’t know, but, just in case this happens and for fun, pick only 8 pros this time (4 female and 4 male) with four runners-up (2 female and 2 male) in case the cast is bigger. For example, here are my dance pro wishes….
Maks Chmerkovskiy (do I dare say I am missing Maks a little and I’m wondering if he learned something from having a season off and if it renewed his spirit and passion to dance?)
Anna Trebunskaya (I miss our fiery Russian red head!)
In case the cast is bigger, my runners-up are:
Male: Val Chmerkovskiy or Mark Ballas (either one), Tristan MacManus
Female: Kym Johnson, Peta Murgatroyd
Wow, that was hard to narrow it down being I love them all? And to think, what if they downsize the couples to only SIX which is a possibility too? I don’t even want to think about it?
Ok, you’re turn now. Let us know which pros you’d like to see dance on the show next season in comments. Though please note: NO SPAMMING, campaigning, or cheering type posts!!! For instance, flying in to say “Lindsay Arnold, Lindsay Arnold!!” will be immediately deleted.
Last night, Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd looked so lovely in red and navy blue satin dresses when they attended the Beverly Hills Lifestyle 5 Year Celebration at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles, California. Above is just a sneak peek of them. You can see more takes of the Dancing With The Stars pros in all of their glory at Getty Images here and here.
Speaking of great images of Sharna and Peta , Sharna has been tweeting out some fabulous photos of herself from the US Weekly shoot this week that we reported to you earlier. Here’s one of them. You can see some individual photos pictures of Peta from shoot as well at Getty Images if you scroll to about the middle of the page. Getty Images has some takes of Lindsay Arnold from this shoot as well. What a hot shoot.
Dancing With The Stars host Brooke Burke Charvet flew to New York City to talk all about her new campaign with Purina Cat Chow. The new campaign is aimed at helping cat shelters across the country.
