Tom Bergeron was on KTLA today via Washington DC to talk about his “Capital Fourth” gig on PBS Wednesday night. He also discusses the elections (WHA??) and there are a few funny mentions on the Dancing With The Stars All Star season too. He jokes that he’s called Stacy Keibler to dance, but, she’s hung up on him. He says he will be back in Los Angeles soon to announce the cast. A hoot and “smooth” as always.
If you haven’t heard yet …on July 4th, Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron will be hosting the “Capital Fourth” on PBS at 8:00pm Central time. Below is an awesome promo he did for it. You can see another and more serious side of him as he recalls what the 4th of July was like when he was young and why it means a lot to him now. See if you enjoy this promo as much as I did. He’s so cool!
While dancing for the CAPITAL FOURTH in Washington D.C. over the 4th of July, Mark and Chelsie took in the sights of the city. Glitterazzi was able to capture some cool pics of the two one of which can be seen above. If you’d like to see another, be sure to see the link. Chelsie looks cute in her cowboy boots. If you missed their performance on the 4th, be sure to see it in a previous post here.
Speaking of Chelsie, something is up with her, Tony, and Grinya’s Entertaiment! Check out these tweets today.
