Entertainment Scoop sat down with Sharna Burgess. They talk of what she’s been doing this summer and prepping for “Ballroom Fusion“….a teaching convention she and her boyfriend, Paul Kirkland, put together. Other pros will be helping them too as they travel to cities all over starting in November. They also talk on Dancing With The Stars, her past dance partners, her dream partner, and more. Thanks to Kate for sending. It’s so good to see her again!
Not sure if there is anything to this speculation from LaLate. They mention Kandi Burruss and some other celebs from Bravo for the next season of Dancing With The Stars…
Is Kandi Burruss joining Dancing with the Stars next season? While Kandi, ABC and BravoTV have yet to comment which Bravolebrity, if any, could be joining DWTS next season, at the moment it would seem likely that Kandi would be the likely Bravolebrity frontrunner followed by Kyle Richards and either Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Barney.
ABC’s DWTS castings took a turn several seasons ago when the show casted Lisa Vanderpump as its first BravoTV star. The RHOBH & Pump Rules star at the time had one of the digital footprints on social media of any Bravo personality. In fact, Lisa’s appearance played a major storyline in the last RHOBH season with the “fake fainting” debate. Vanderpump has admitted to news that NeNe Leakes often calls her for advice on housewives shows. And shortly around the same time, Leakes inked her spot on DWTS, the second Bravolebrity to date.

Peta Murgatroyd is in the new issue of Fitness Magazine. She talks of how she stays in shape during the off season of Dancing With The Stars. She also gives advice on how everyone else can do so. Below is an excerpt…
Imagine having 23 years of dancing under your belt, Broadway acting experience, a fitness wardrobe to die for, and a killer bod. That’s why we’re completely obsessing over Peta Murgatroyd, the 27-year-old Dancing with the Stars veteran competitor.
“I truly believe that dancing is the best form of fitness and exercise,” Murgatroyd recently told us during a visit to the FITNESS offices. “Dancing makes you feel good. It makes you feel happy, especially if you can do it with a loved one.”
That being said, it’s no surprise that she highly recommends fitness dance classes—for both men and women—as a fun way to stay in shape.
“Even for a guy to be able to lead a girl and to be able to go out and feel comfortable, like in a club situation, and not be dorky—I think that’s really hot and sexy if he can do that. If I ever have a son, I’m going to be putting him into dance.”

Hey All! Be sure to read Cathy’s fan blog over at Pure Derek Hough. At a Question and Answer session at the “Move Live On Tour” Broadway show, Derek Hough mentions how Dancing With The Stars wants Julianne back for next season. There will also “be changes”. Derek also mentioned that he didn’t know if he’d be back.
Then he went on to say that they want Julianne back, there will be changes next season, and that he doesn’t know yet.
This would be so cool. I hope they can get Julianne (as well as Derek) back to dance as she is on fire in this tour to say the least according to all our reports. She’d be a great judge again too. Though note that Julianne has also mentioned going back to making movies when the tour ends. So, it’s anyone’s guess for what could happen?
