Len Goodman Says DWTS Season 20 Will Be His Last

Digital Spy is reporting Len Goodman won’t be coming back to Dancing With The Stars after Season 20. I really can’t blame him, can you? Read on for more and thanks to Lori and M8 for the heads up!

“Next year, I’m not going to do the flying backwards and forwards – I’m not going to do the American show… I’ve got to have a bit of time off,” Goodman explained.

“I’ve got my wife, I’ve got my son, my mother is still alive and she’s in hospital – I’ve had virtually no time to go and visit her.

“So, I just need a bit of time off to get on with a normal life. And it was either Strictly went or the American one went or the tour went… I’m doing the spring one when I go out there… and that’s going to be my last one.”

Flashback Friday: DWTS Season 1

First, I want to give Vogue complete credit for the idea, because she has started  a flashback Friday post over on PDH.

Since Season 20 will be a big 10 year anniversary for DWTS, I thought it would be a nice idea to take the time to look back on each of the past seasons, and see and discuss how the show evolved. We’ll do one season a week, and one dance from each of the contestants. If possible, I’ll try to find a pro dance from the season.

So here we are!

SEASON ONE premiered  June 1, 2005 and ran for 6 weeks. with 6 stars competing. Harold Wheeler Orchestra and his singers provided the music, and we had 3 judges, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba. Tom Bergeron was our host, and his co-host number one was Lisa Canning.

 

TRISTA SUTTER and LOUIS VAN AMSTEL was the first couple eliminated on DWTS. They danced a waltz and a rumba, and left the show on June 8, 2005. Here’s their waltz.

EVANDER HOLYFIELD and EDYTA SLIWINSKA was the second couple eliminated, on June 15, 2005. They danced a cha cha, quickstep and a jive. Here’s their quickstep. Read more..

Brooks Laich On DWTS Julianne Hough: “She puts so much great out into the world…”

These two are so cute! This past week, Dancing With The Stars Julianne Hough posted the instagram below with the caption, “A little nature walk with the loves of my life! Amazing goal tonight sweetheart! @brookslaich xoxo” E Online also has a cool report on them and how they met. I’m loving this quote… #AwwwMoment Be sure to read more at the link.

Since then the two have done nothing but pack on the PDA and gush about each other! Laich opened up about his ladylove despite wanting to remain relatively private and dished about how it feels to be dating her.

“I don’t want to get into a whole lot of it; I’m kind of shy on my personal life,” he said before gushing, “But she’s a cool, cool gal. She’s just a sweetheart, very loving, very giving. She puts so much great out into the world. I’m a pretty lucky guy.”

With a guy who talks about his girlfriend like that, you know she must be pretty happy!

“He’s a wonderful guy…I’m very lucky that my friend I shot Curve with, the movie I just did, introduced us,” she told E! News.
