Nene Leakes And Tony Dovolani Go Clubbing To Get Ready For Next Dance On DWTS

I wish I could have been a fly on a wall to see Nene and Tony Salsa-ing it up at a Club in Atlanta this week. Below is more from Nene at E Online on she and Tony’s new dance. Note how Nelly’s “It’s Getting Hot in Here” is their song!!

Oooh, hunni here we go! This week we’re doing a salsa. It’s Party Anthem, so we’re doing Nelly’s “It’s Getting Hot in Here,” and you better believe it, we love Nelly. I think that was one of the hottest party anthems of all time and it still sounds good. If you play it in a club, everybody still gets up and bounces to it.

Oh and we are shaking it, hunni! I’m sweating, I’m telling you. I’ve almost got an afro, my hair has curled completely up! Well we definitely want to portray the party scene, and we also want to touch on the technical of salsa, so there will be a lot of sexy moves and we definitely want to get up and make the crowd feel it, so that’s the plan.

Ooh, hunni the salsa club was amazing! It was a big Latin night out here, and we decided to go, and it was awesome. We saw a lot of moves that I will not be doing. My moves are nowhere near their moves. I mean, they are really working it out. You talk about sweating, oh my god! I don’t know. It takes a lot to do salsa. You are moving your arms, and your hips, and your feet, and I mean you are really working it. and you know, Tony can do any dance in the world, so going to the Latin club was like right up his alley. He loved it!

LOL! I love the way she writes! More at E Online. Thanks to @BridgeC17 for sending!

James Maslow Chats About Dancing With The Stars, The Competition, And More

USA Today interviewed James Maslow about Dancing With The Stars. He was shocked to see Cody Simpson leave last week, but, is proud for how he and Peta received 4 10′s. More below including his thoughts on if he has a chance to win and more.

He’s also putting in five hours a day of dancing rehearsal time. On the show, he has talked about how he was bullied as a kid because he was “chubby.” Although he still is careful about what he eats, he says, “I know how easy it is to go backward.”

Maslow, who attending performing arts schools from eighth grade until he graduated from high school, learned some basic dance steps along the way, but it was “never my forte.” He was more into music and acting.

Although happy with his perfect scores, he says he was surprised by teen pop star Cody Simpson’s exit this week. Simpson, 17, seemed to have a healthy young-girl fan base.

“I don’t feel safe,” says Maslow. “I think there’s a huge audience that’s been watching the show for years that’s not part of my 3 million Twitter followers.”

So far, he hasn’t suffered any injuries. “I’ve done ice baths and seen a chiropractor, but knock on wood, that’s it.”

Of all the stars still dancing, he sees Meryl Davis as his biggest threat. “People are impressed by her. I could see her being the winner.”

It almost seems unfair that the Olympians who have years of dance experience would be allowed on the show. “We’ve all thought of it that way, too but they’re really nice people,”says Maslow. “They’re on tour now and having to learn this while they’re doing that is tough. They’re working hard like everyone else. To me, it’s complimentary that I’ve gotten better scores than professionals.”

He adds, “I wouldn’t be on the show if I didn’t believe I had a chance to win it.”

DWTS2014 Sharna Burgess And Charlie White Talk To WMUR In Manchester, New Hampshire

Sharna Burgess and Charlie White were interviewed by WMUR in Manchester, New Hampshire. Charlie tells them they have been rehearsing 4 to 5 hours in the morning and then it’s straight to the ice show with Meryl Davis. Below is more….

“Every morning, we have four to five hours of rehearsal, and then it’s straight to the show,” White said. “Physically and mentally, it’s a lot of stress, and it’s difficult.”

White and Davis have been ice dancing partners for 17 years, but they said making the switch to a professional dance partner hasn’t been that difficult.

“No one will ever have the partnership that Charlie and Meryl have,” said White’s dancing partner, Sharna Burgess. “There’s something very special about them, and it’s just meant to be.”

“Some of the habits that I’ve formed on the ice in the last 22 years are difficult to break,” Davis said of her transition to dancing.

You can read the full article and see a fun pic at WMUR.

ETA: If you go to this link, you can watch a video interview. Maks and Meryl are included in it too. Is that “Feel So Close” by Calvin Harrison playing in the background?

PureDWTS Season 18, Week 6 – What’s Left to Dance?

So we’re at the halfway point in the competition – 5 more weeks to go, and there’s still 8 couples left…seems like a lot, but I guess numerically it makes sense.  We’ve got party anthem night this coming Monday, Latin night the following Monday, and then who knows.  Will the guest judges cease once we hit week 8? Will the themes cease? When’s the team dance? What other funky sh*t are they gonna throw our way between now and the finale? :-P

I don’t have ALL of the answers, but I’ll try and paint the clearest picture I can of the remainder of the season.  Here’s the list of what the remaining couples have left to dance in the coming weeks – I’ve already removed their party anthem week dances, so consider this the remaining dances for Latin week onward. I’ve added a bit of my own commentary as well.  And because I’m nice, I did it both a list format AND a handy-dandy chart. :-) I have a question mark by the Viennese waltz (see why below) and I honestly doubt we’ll see anyone else doing the swing this season, but I went ahead and included it since we did see it from two couples already. …Read more
