Looks like Derek has already been pretty busy with Hairspray, judging by this new advertisement that came out today. Looks like fun! I can’t wait. 🙂
Sorry, but I hope not. 🙂 I’m a Big Brother fan and that season was not fun. Anyway, Frankie has been all over social media doing a count down to a “big announcement”…and the day coincides with the DWTS announcement day. See….
Thanks to Siobhan, who clued Courtney in on Twitter, we also know that Frankie also regularly uses the phrase “Shine Bright Like a Frankie”. Well, I think the DWTS Snapchat snapped the following:
For those of you who don’t watch Big Brother, Frankie is Arianna Grande’s brother and a social media dude. Here’s his website: Frankie J. Grande
Note the question mark in the title. I have no idea if this is true but I saw it yesterday and decided to report on it. I only hesitated yesterday because it was only showing up on a business blog. Still today, none of the mainstream media has picked it up (that I’ve seen) and run with it, despite the original source being TMZ (click to read the whole article). Gay marriage is legal in how many states and there are how many openly gay characters on network television?? So, what’s the deal here…if true?
Sources connected with the show tell TMZ, the issue came up over an upcoming performance by an openly gay artist who goes by the name, Who Is Fancy. The performance is set for November 23, where he will debut his new song, “Boys Like You,” featuring Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor, who will also appear on the show.
The song is about a man falling in love with another man. We’ve learned Who Is Fancy’s choreographer sent an email to a ‘DWTS’ producer, saying, it would “be an awesome look to have 2 males dancing with each other.”
Our sources say the ‘DWTS’ honchos discussed it and a producer fired back an email, saying, “Apologies all but this is a definitive no from the network.”
Apparently, it’s okay for Carlos and Alek to dance “near” each other. Wonder how the network felt about Val and Carlos doing salsa together??
We’re back with the list of music for week 6 of DWTS Season 17. If you missed the past music, you can always check out our full list of Dancing with the Stars music throughout the season. That page will update each week as we post the music.
