E News is reporting that Toni Dovolani would like to be a judge on Dancing With The Stars. Yes or No to the idea?
“I would love to judge,” longtime pro Tony Dovolani told E! News backstage at Sway: A Dance Trilogy. “If that’s the call they make, I would accept it graciously and happily.”
Tony is confident he’d “bring something to the table,” as he’s “been on the show for 19 seasons.” (He joined DWTS in its second season and has competed every season since.)
“I’ve been partnered with so many different celebrities,” he said. “I have a lot of knowledge of what they go through. I’d judge fairly.”

Ya know…I’m not that big on tattoos, but, I have to say, I am loving Rumer Willis’ new tattoo pictured at E News. E News also asked Rumer and Val Chmerkovskiy about their journey and the new Dancing With The Stars tour. More below…
The Dancing With the Stars winner has decided to join the show’s summer run, Dancing With the Stars Live! Perfect Ten Tour! Rumer talked to E! News at the StarShop app launch event in New York City and dished what it was like when she first left the show and what she’s excited for next.
“I’m crazy excited. During my first week off from the show, I was so bored I didn’t know what to do with myself,” she said. “I ended up organizing my whole house and cleaning out my closet because I went from having six or seven hours of rehearsals and performing to nothing.”
Rumer has also been keeping busy by showing off her amazing body on social media, posting bikini pics from her Memorial Day Weekend festivities. She loved her experience so much, in fact, that she can’t wait to get back into rehearsals.
