Dancing with the Stars Season 22 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year again and who knows what kind of funky will go down this season. Will Derek finally hang up his DWTS shoes? Will Artem get hosed again in favor of the ever annoying Val? Will Sasha finally get his chance? Will Sharna continue to follow in the wrong footsteps, making unwise statements? Who will take Allison’s spot? These questions and more will hopefully be answered soon. :-)

I don’t want to hear about Jenna being dance captain. I think that is likely decided among the dancers themselves and I doubt it has any significance in regard to the show – maybe she’ll be a pro, maybe she won’t. Derek and Julianne’s dance captain was someone you’ve likely never heard of. So what?

Kristyn Burtt claims that the pros have been told rehearsals start on February 22 – it remains to be seen if that is true or if it actually happens. Last season was so…fluid…that we’ll have to wait and see. I do think we’ll start to hear stuff from those with a lack of ability to keep their mouths shut. :-) There are some Derek fans that worry his media sweep happening next week will include an announcement about his status. The media sweep is because of Disneyland 60 – if an announcement happens, it will likely be that he’s out. If he says nothing or hems and haws, it might be that he’s in. He’s a tough call, as usual.

The lists below reflect who was a pro last season and who wasn’t. I don’t really think Louis will be back because Paula asked specifically for him. Kym? Who knows?

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. :-)

Teresa Giudice Turned Down Dancing With The Stars Season 22

I meant to post on this yesterday and got side tracked. Anyway, People is reporting Teresa Giudice was in talks to do Dancing With The Stars Season 22, but, she said no.

Teresa Giudice won’t be stepping onto the Dancing with the Stars stage.

A source tells PEOPLE that the Bravo star was in talks to be on the next season of the hit dance competition series but “she didn’t do it because she didn’t want to be away from her girls.”

“Her focus is family,” the source adds. “Her kids are in school and she would not have wanted to be away from them, even for a couple days a week. She sacrificed a nice paycheck to be home with her girls.”

A DWTS insider says no formal offer was ever made.

More at People. I have to say…I’m not too heart broke on this news.

ABC22 Reports On Dancing With The Stars Louis Van Amstel Teaching Dance

Dancing With The Stars Louis Van Amstel has been busy this off season teaching La Blast classes. ABC22 in Miami did a little report on him which you can watch here. I wonder if Louis will be picked as a Pro this year? We will soon see. I have to say I really enjoyed him and Paula Deen last season.

A dancing pro visits the Miami Valley to lead a fitness class in Vandalia. Our cameras were there as professional dancer and Dancing With The Stars’ Louis Van Amstel led a “LaBlast Fitness” class. Van Amstel tells us he loves meeting new people who may be afraid of not doing well in the class, but then end up surprising themselves.

“It’s all great things you get a physical response from your body emotionally you have a great time you dance to your favorite music and you learn the true skill of dance,” said Van Amstel.

Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews Predicts The Super Bowl Winner

Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews picked who she thinks will win the Super Bowl tomorrow. Below is more from People.

If anyone can do it, it might be the Denver Broncos, says Andrews, who in a partnership with Levi’s, recently announced the brand will be expanding its NFL Collection this fall to include gear for all 32 teams.

“Their defense is unbelievable, obviously, and everything they were able to do over the season,” she says. “And you know Peyton (Manning, quarterback for the Broncos) is Peyton for a reason. So I’m just excited to watch the game. I hope it’s a close one and I hope it lives up to all the expectations.”

So who does Andrews expect to win?

“For my long-winded answer,” she tells PEOPLE, “I may say Carolina.”

More at People.

So who do you pick to win the Super Bowl? Go Broncos for me!
