Willow Shields was a guest on KTLA today. She chats about her and Mark Ballas’ Argentine Tango on Dancing With The Stars this past week. She’s such a little fireball. Speaking of, she is going to be “fire” on Dancing With The Stars this Monday night (according the rehearsals yesterday). I hope they she and Mark bring on the intensity again…
You can catch a new Dancing With The Stars rehearsal interview with Sharna Burgess and Noah Galloway at The Insider. He wants to take on any challenge that comes his way….and that he is. More below…
Michael Sam was interviewed about his football career and being opening gay. He was also asked if he is enjoying Dancing With The Stars. He didn’t answer and instead said he’d rather be playing football. Hmmmm More below from USA Today. Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up.
What a magical night for Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough. Last night was the opening night of New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Pictured below is he and his Dancing With The Stars partner Nastia Liukin. You can view more photos at Getty Images. Pure Derek Hough has more photos, a round up of press reviews, videos, guest blogs, and more of the show that you won’t want to miss seeing and reading. Go Derek!!! *So so proud of you!
Well, DWTS Season 20 Week 2 is in the history books and it was a pretty good week. There was nothing that made me snort in disgust (from the judges, anyway) and a whole bunch of pretty darn good to great dancing.
But, as usual, someone has to go home on Monday night. Last week I was pretty clear when I said “Either Charlotte or Redfoo” and said my number 1 choice for most likely to be eliminated was Charlotte. I was pleasantly surprised to find that she was safe – most likely by 0.10 percent. No, I don’t believe Suzanne was a real bottom 2. For her to be a real bottom 2, it meant that Charlotte got nearly 10k more votes per million votes cast than her and that Redfoo did nearly that much – and there ain’t no way you’re convincing me of that. Nope. I think that’s highly unlikely.
Now, normally, I would automatically assume that Charlotte was definitely the next to go. But I’m not so sure that’s true. Why? Well, let’s look at all the scores. Read more..
Rumer Willis was a guest on Access Hollywood today. She talked about her dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Rumer also mentions how her parents are rooting her on. They also talk on the competition. More below. Stay tuned. There is more to this interview when Val joins them. We’ll post it as soon as it’s released.
ETA: Ok, below is the second part of the interview….
Hey, just an reminder! “Dancing Pros Live” only has 5 shows left. If you live or are travelling to the east coast in April, try and see the show as Drew Lachey, Karina Smirnoff, Edyta Sliwinska, and Chelsie Hightower are dancing as well as dance champions from all over the world. It’s a MUST SEE! You can read my personal review and experience of the show and go backstage with Edyta Sliwinska and Karina Smirnoff at this link. I had such a blast. If interested in tickets and scheduling information, see the official site of “Dancing Pros Live”.
Also, we updated the schedule for Ballroom With A Twist. Their Spring and Summer Schedule is starting to take shape. To read more about it, see this post.
Today Derek Hough and Nastia Liukin were on The View to talk about Dancing With The Stars. Derek also talked about doing New York Spring Spectacular. Such a great interview. For more with this couple including their new blogs, photos, videos, and lots more, see Pure Derek Hough.
Sharna Burgess has written a new blog at Closer Weekly. She talks of the challenges putting her and Noah’s Samba together last week and her most special moment when Noah’s girlfriend surprised him on the show. She also teases on their new dance coming up for week 3 of dancing With The Stars. Be sure to see the link for more including some fun photos.
Of all the incredible moments last night, I have to say the one that got me the most was when Noah’s beautiful girlfriend, Jamie Boyd, ran up and surprised him! I had absolutely no idea and this is honestly one of the most gorgeous moments I have seen on ‘DWTS’ yet. I ended up backing away to let them have their moment and their own space. What a precious memory to have. Aren’t they the most awesome couple ever?!
Next week it’s Argentine Tango! Guess what that means… lifts! Yay! I’m already excited about what is developing creatively and I feel like seeing Noah in this character will be an awesome change from the last two weeks. We are using a prosthetic arm for this one, which will mean a lot of trial and error and seeing what can work!
Love you all and I know you are going to be so proud of Noah, just like I am.
This was originally meant to be simply a weekly post for Julianne’s style for week 2 of Dancing With The Stars, along with some info on her new blog, then things happened. So, we’ll start with the easy stuff, and go from there.
I thought Julianne looked GORGEOUS this week! I think everything came together perfectly– the right dress, the right hair, the right make up, the right shoes, the right accessories! But it’s more than that, she looks happy, and more and more for the last year or so, she glows! Even when I don’t agree with some of her fashion choices, she’s had this happy glow. She’s in a great relationship with a good man, and it definitely agrees with her. ANYWAY! Here’s People’s Style post.
And don’t forget, Julianne is the April 2015 cover girl for Allure Magazine, and they’ve got some stuff online. Some of this you may have seen from one of Vogue’s earlier posts, but you can go through her style evolution here, some gorgeous photos from her cover shoot here, video from her cover shoot here, and some of her beauty secrets here.
Don’t forget to go check out Julianne’s new website, she’s working on it herself, she’s not hired people to create it for her. And she’s doing a great job! Check it out, it’s simply called Jules. As all of you should know, Julianne has been working with Kind Campaign for some time now, because they’re a cause that’s very important to her. And, she’s got posts dealing with the importance of kindness on her blog.
On Tuesday, she posted this, that deals with the cyber bullying that Charlotte endured. I’m glad that Julianne, and Tom, and Erin said something, because it is a rampant issue. Not just on DWTS, but everywhere. Julianne’s been a victim of it, but she’s never spoken up about cyber bullying, until it happened to Charlotte. And it was wrong, and I’m glad she said something on the show. I definitely DO NOT agree with the person on twitter that I saw who told Julianne that she was all wrong with her comment, because Charlotte “acts like a bimbo. Reap what you sow.” No, Charlotte did NOT deserve to be treated the way. No one deserves to be treated like that, and making excuses just makes it even more wrong. You don’t tell a woman who’s been physically abused that she deserved it because of her clothing, and you don’t tell a woman who’s been mentally abused that she deserved it because of how you think she acts. Period.
Our friend Krystin Burtt has a discussion about DWTS and cyber bullying over on her new website for AfterBuzz, go check it out, read the comments, and then come back and share your thoughts.
I don’t think this is going to be an easy fix, and I don’t think this is something that DWTS will be able to solve on it’s own. But I’d love to hear your thoughts, and what you feel could be the beginning of a solution?
