“You realize what kind of life you lived, and that flashes before you, and then you realize what kind of life that you want to live after.” ~Adrianne Haslet Davis

What a huge honor to be able to interview Boston Bombing Survivor Adrianne Haslet Davis. But, Adrianne is much more than a survivor. I think some people are angels on earth and that is Adrianne Haslet Davis to me. With her strength, courage, determination, and love she has come full circle and has a message for millions. She’s now “re-defining the finish line” in more ways than one. Read on to read our Exclusive interview to see why…..and don’t forget to tune into the Boston Marathon on April 18th to see Adrianne run for the first time since the 2013 terror attacks. Also, let’s hope Dancing With The Stars asks Adrianne back to the show to do a special performance and follow up. Wouldn’t that be awesome? With that said, thank you to Adrianne for her beautiful self and her time. Also, thanks to those who submitted questions. A special thanks to Cathy as well for assisting me. ~Vogue x

Vogue: Hi Adrianne! What an honor it is to be able talk with you. I’ve been a long time fan and have been watching your progress since the Boston Bombings! What an angel you are who has come full circle. You have become a huge inspiration and beacon of light for others through this awful tragedy. Through it all, you’ve turned it inside out and not let it or the terrorists beat you. How have you been able to overcome everything and maintain such a beautiful outlook, love, and passion for people? Not only that, you haven’t let anything stop you from dancing or running.

The biggest motivation keeping me going is knowing how far I have come, yet also how real the struggle was to get here. I never want to portray that I have overcome everything, because I feel like my recovery is an ongoing forever process. We all evolve and change, and my love and passion for people is a direct connection with that. I am motivated by the struggle to keep going even when we feel like pulling our head under the covers. Life is tough but that is what makes it Read more..

DWTS Derek Hough Pictured In “Ones To Watch” Feature In August Issue Of W Magazine And Other News

Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough is pictured in the new August issue of W Magazine in their “Ones to Watch” feature. If you go to this link, you can see a new photo of him wearing a Dsquared2 shirt 
and pants. He also talks of doing reality TV in the beginning.

“If you try to be cool, if you worry about being embarrassed, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons,” Hough says. “You’ve gotta embrace it—and sometimes that means going for a ridiculous song.”

Also, just a heads: Remember dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis who lost part of her leg in the Boston Bombing? She tweeted last night that she will be having a dance lesson with Derek and Julianne before the “Move Live On Tour” Boston show tonight. Stay tuned to Pure Derek Hough if this happens.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis To Make Appearance On Dancing With The Stars

Remember Adrianne Haslet-Davis the professional dancer and instructor who lost part of her left leg in the Boston Marathon bombing? Well, next week, she will dance for the very first time for a show in Vancouver, Canada. Not only that, at some point this season, it sounds like she will be making an appearance on Dancing With The Stars. You can watch Adrianne talking about it in a video at WCVB. Like Amy Purdy, she is a huge inspiration. I love how she says, “It’s not just me I’m fighting for”.

From that, Haslet-Davis said the first ever bionic dance leg that restores the body’s natural movements and patterns was created. She is expected to show how it works at the annual TED Conference, where technology, entertainment and design ideas are shared.

“I had days when I doubted myself and then I thought it’s not just me I’m fighting for,” she said. “There are going to be others. It makes me emotional just thinking about it. There are going to be others who will suffer through this.”

Getting to this point hasn’t been easy for her or her husband, Air Force Capt. Adam Davis, who was also injured during the blast. But, she said, this is hopefully the first of many more dances in her life. After all, we’re all waiting for her TV debut.

When she was asked about possibly appearing on “Dancing With The Stars,” she said, “I know, it’s so exciting. Stay tuned.”
