Allison Holker talks of what it’s like to do Dancing With The Stars and what it takes ….and while juggling a family and more too. It’s challenging to say the least, but, she adored it. I miss her already!
Dancing With The Stars Allison Holker is in Bobby Newberry’s new music video. You can watch it below….and it is stunning. Thanks to @Idolxfactor1 for the heads up.
So, as may of our long time readers know, Courtney and I have been quite critical of the choreography done by Mandy Moore on DWTS. With the exception of a few numbers last year it seemed like it consisted of some combination of bumping and grinding – male and female. We even heard a rumor of a comment Derek made regarding a male pro dance last season…one that he was subsequently not a part of. While Derek is in his own league and may not be required to take part in pro dances any more (can you think of one where he was there the whole way through??), I think our source was solid at the time.
We’ve also been uber critical of some of the male pros choreography, namely…well all of them except Derek and Mark, really. Now, the childish reader likes to claim that’s just because we like Derek and Mark more. Well, yes, I do…but that’s not necessarily true of either Vogue or Courtney, and it doesn’t automatically mean that the choreography by those men is better than I claim. And if one of the men does something I like – I say so. But I think that much of it has been objectively less than stellar. The women fare much better…and I’m not sure why, except perhaps they get some outside help. Like WAY outside. Away from DWTS.
So you probably wonder what I’m getting at here. Well, I was watching the video that Vogue posted the other day – choreography for the TV Academy by Mandy Moore. It was FANTASTIC. She’s getting raves for La La Land (although I’ve seen a very few “derivative” comments – haven’t seen it yet myself) and she’s done some great stuff on SYTYCD. She’s more regularly great (with a few less great, but every pro has those) on SYTYCD than she has ever been on DWTS. Read more..
Have any of you picked up the new issue of People Magazine? As you might know from a previous report, Dancing With the Stars Allison Holker’s home with hubby tWitch and their kids are featured inside. People Online now has a sweet article on her son’s baby nursery. It’s sweet. You can see it here as well as some thoughts from Allison some of which you can read below.
“We have a rocking-chair elephant that is just adorable,” Holker says of her favorite piece in the nursery. “Being able to sit with my little boy every night before he goes to bed and read him his story is the best time of the day for me. It’s something we do every night together, and it’s just our special time.”
“I really hope that when he gets a little bit bigger that he’ll actually sit on the rocking chair and actually enjoy it as much as I do. It’s so cute and it adds a really lovely childlike nature to the room,” adds the mom of two.
There’s no doubt little Maddox is covered, but what about Holker’s 8½-year-old daughter Weslie?
“My daughter’s favorite space in the house is definitely our dining room,” she says. “My daughter absolutely gets really excited for our family dinner and she always cooks with us.”
Continues the fit mama, “When we sit down, she’s always excited to ask the first question at the dinner table of, ‘How was everyone’s day?’ She’s always the one to start off the conversation, which we love so much.”
Though Holker and Boss, 34 — The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘s resident DJ — have been living in their first home together for a bit, they have taken their time in making it their own. But their patience and hard work have been worth it
“We’ve been living in our home for a year now, so we’ve been working on designing it, trying to figure out what to do with [it]. We’re excited to have it finally done and we absolutely love it now,” Holker says.
It’s that time of year once again folks. There are other sites out there mimicking us, but none of them that I would bank on just yet.
Which means that we know Derek is out. Also, according to a Good Morning America announcement today, Maks and Peta are dancing. If you have something to contribute, PLEASE PROVIDE a SOURCE – by that I mean a link. We appreciate the help, but it needs to be sourced, otherwise it’s just a distraction. Thx.
ETA1: And Tony confirms he’s out for this season. Not gonna lie, I’m disappointed – he was always so kind to his partners, moreso than some other pros that will likely get a spot…-Court-
ETA2: Witney and Sharna are confirmed per People Magazine as is Val…but I do wonder if they are making the same silly assumption that others do re: the poster. ~Heidi
ETA3: According to People, Jenna is OUT! ~ Vogue
ETA4: Vogue again. Gleb is IN again according to this interview. YAYYY! Can you tell I’m excited?! 🙂 Thanks to @GleekyZ for sending.
ETA5: And in the first development this season that actually has me excited, an old favorite returns…yes kids, She of the Awesome Boobage is back…Kym 😀 -Court-
ETA6: Not sure on this, but, according to @DWTSGossip, Allison is out. I think I am going to cry if true. I love her. – Vogue
ETA7: Confirmed – Keo is back. Kinda thought he might be, since I think he was only set aside last season in order to bring Gleb back on board. -Court-
ETA8: Source confirms that Sasha, Lindsay, & Emma are all IN. Doing some extreme vetting over here, folks…-Court-
ETA9: According to ET, Mark and Karina are out too. Dang. And to anyone thinking this site hates Mark, you couldn’t be more WRONG. ~ Vogue
ETA10: Not sure if anyone is really still watching this post, but it looks like Jenna is also out as a troupe member this season. To address some of the chatter on Twitter – no, we don’t know what Sasha’s talking about; no, we don’t know if Mark is back in as a surprise; no, we still don’t have a confirmation on Artem’s status. We’ll share if we get any updates…-Court-

Yesterday was filled with love, laughs, and boogie. @allisonholker and I teamed up with @cmnhospitals to have a holiday dance party to celebrate and raise awareness for a wonderful cause. Thank you to everyone that came out and a very special thank you to our Miracle Kids that continue to be a light in our world. The holidays is about giving back and it should be a mission to find a way to spread love however you can. It's easier than you think and it feels good. It's what we are here for. Much love this holiday season y'all.
