Also, any guesses for what Tommy will do with the Mirror Ball if he wins it? You’ll have to read Derek Hough’s new blog to see. Hilarious!

DWTS Alfonso Ribeiro May Have To Pull Out Of The Competition

This is sad! Let’s hope Alfonso is going to be ok! From TMZ….

Our DWTS sources say Ribeiro injured his back during rehearsal Wednesday night as he tried to overcompensate for a groin injury which he suffered on the show, performing his signature move.

The back injury is bad — he’s having trouble even walking. Alfonso skipped rehearsals Thursday so he could get an MRI.

Doctors are telling him the next 48 hours are critical, but they say there’s a real chance he can’t dance.

Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff Wins 2014 Labs Outstanding Achievers Award

Congratulations to Karina Smirnoff!! Last night she was awarded the 2014 Outstanding Achievers With Learning Differences Award. It’s given by the Labs school in Washington DC to people with learning disabilities who have overcame them and are a success in their field. Karina was honored along side a Pulitzer Prize winning author. Thanks to Mel for the heads up on this news! Below are some instagrams. To view more, see Karina’s Instagram.

ETA: Tomorrow Karina is attending a KIIS FM Purse party. You can read more here. Let’s hope we get pictures.

“Tomorrow is going to be like a girl heaven,” she describes. “Shoes, purses, drinks, massages … I mean, if you go to heaven as a woman, that’s where you go.”

When Karina is not hosting purse parties and raffling designer handbags, the 36-year-old is strictly business on the dance floor. The DWTS Season 13 winner insists she refuses to develop any intimate relationships with her dance partners.

“Absolutely not,” she says. “If you have a chemistry with your partner during the season, there is nothing wrong with it. But don’t go into it until the season is over. You see each other seven days a week. It’s not difficult to develop feelings. But once it’s over, it’s like they cut the umbilical cord. You have no connection to your partner unless you like call and talk. So I say absolutely not. So Ryan, if you and I are on the show together, I can’t date you during the season.”

PureDWTS 19 Semi-Finals Numerology Predictions: “It’s This Tight”

Hi All! DonaMadrina is back with her seasonal Numerology Predictions and Analysis and she outdid herself. Read on to see what I mean. This is fascinating….and talk about a tight call this time. Be sure to let us know what you think in comments.

“It’s This Tight”
by Donamadrina
If you’ve been reading PureDWTS for a while now, you know that it’s a tradition for Vogue and I to take a look at which couples have the best chance of winning Dancing With the Stars based on astrology and numerology – and, hey, we’ve got a good record too – so far. :) I’m going to start the thrust this week with a look at the numerology of the final five couples, and then both Vogue and I will look at the final four next week.

Each season seems to get tougher to predict. (Gosh, why is that?) However, even the professionals who do this all the time seem to be having a problem. If you take a look at the Las Vegas odds throughout the season, you will notice that the odds for the final 3-4 have fluctuated tremendously. Most of the odds makers have Alfonso winning, but will he? BING, the search engine, has projected Sadie and Mark as the winners based on video views and searches. Another source projects that it will be Janel and Val. So who will it be?

Well, let’s take a look at which couples may be in the final 4, though if you’ve been reading Heidi’s Dancing By the Numbers, it may seem a bit obvious. For now, let’s see if numerology confirms what Heidi sees from the math. How does numerology work? Well, that subject is beyond the scope of this blog. Let’s just say, it works. However, gotta admit that numerology is not an exact science. It takes the blending of many factors, and that’s where numerology becomes an art. Read more..

Afterbuzz TV And Shirley Ballas Review The Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Quarterfinals

Kristen Burtt says Shirley Ballas is “on fire” and that she is as she helps to review the new dances on Dancing With The Stars with the Afterbuzz TV gang. Let us know what you think in comments.

My thoughts: Great show and I pretty much agreed with them on everything except for what Anna said on Derek & Bethany’s Trio dance. I loved what the panel as a whole said on Bethany & Derek and Sadie & Mark and their individual dances. Same with Alfonso & Witney and Tommy & Peta. I especially agreed with Shirley on Artem and Lea. She nailed it and then some for what I could never find the words for. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Shirley should be a Judge for this show!!
