Isn’t this a cool picture? Last night, Dancing With The Stars Brooke Burke Charvet, her husband David, and Karina Smirnoff went to see the Lisa Blue Show. Brooke and Karina have been in Miami Beach, Florida this week for “Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2013″. You can view more fun photos of them at Zimbio Pictures.
If you’ve been following Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet at twitter, you know she’s been keeping herself really busy this summer in the off season spending quality time with her husband and family. Brooke has also been promoting her new intiMINT line as well as taking part is some new photo shoots such as a “covered topless” Major League shoot which you can view at Egotastic.com. Don’t worry. It’s tastefully done (in my opinion ).
Brooke was also seen recently taking photos for a bikini shoot at her house in Malibu (pictured above). You can see more candid pics of Brooke behind the scenes at Actress Book.
Also, check out this recent video below at Brooke’s You Tube channel where she discusses what turns her on in a guy. She has some good advise for them too.
So, question: would you like to see Brooke dance or co-host in the Dancing With The Stars All-star season? Vote below and let us know what you think?
Hmmm, I think it might be cool to see Brooke dance again…especially with someone else like Tristan or Maks.
The dancers from Dancing With The Stars aren’t the only stars of the show to be working and vacationing in Las Vegas currently. Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke was also in Sin City with her family over the weekend. She took part in the Donald Driver Charity events. She was also seen with her family at “O” by Cirque du Soleil at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino Saturday night (pictured above). You can read all about it at Vegas News. Sweet!
A couple of weeks ago, we told you about Brooke Burke Charvet’s new line of lingerie called “intiMINT“. Now the Dancing With The Stars co-host has released some of the shoot and what happened “behind the scenes” with the photographer Yu Tsai.
Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke Charvet is launching a new line of lingerie called “intiMINT“. The new line (which she models above) will include lace g-strings, briefs, boyshorts, bralettes, racerback tanks, robes, nightgowns, and separates. In promotion with the launching, there is a new interview up at Brooke’s website Modern Mom. Below is a take for why Brooke thinks Moms will love her new lingerie line.
Why do you think moms will love your new line?
I think the first thing that goes when we become mothers is our “me time” – the time we spend on ourselves. I think it’s super important for moms to bring their sexy back and to not lose their sense of self. We have to remember that we are still women!
Something as simple as intimate apparel – a beautiful pair of panties and a bra with a sexy detail – might help you feel like a sensual woman again. It can help you remember that woman behind the scenes, the woman you were before you had children. Trust me, your husband will appreciate it, but do it for your own inner Goddess too.
Lingerie is the first thing we put on in the morning and the closest things to our body. I know sometimes we only have five minutes to throw on our gear before rushing out the door to carpool, work or whatever other mommy commitment we have…. and as moms, I think we sometimes forget how sexy we are!
I want to encourage women to take style chances, add color to their wardrobe and learn to layer and have fun with the sexy pieces in the intiMINT line. Simply making the choice to dress your body in intimate apparel that is both comfortable and beautiful can make such a difference in the way you feel throughout the day!
Nice. I love it. Be sure to read more at Modern Mom. You can view more pictures of Brooke directing on the set as well.

We’re back, after a couple week absence…and some of you will not be happy to see us. Them’s are breaks…the weeks we missed we’ll pick up as a bit of retrospective cheese once the season is over.
The Award for Biggest Lack of Commitment to Week 9 – The Costuming Department who really screwed Cheryl out of some fringe on her Samba Costume
Heidi: You might ask yourself, “Are ‘biggest’ and ‘lack’ really the two best words to put together?” but really that was what was going through my mind looking at her costume. Yo, dudes, either add the fringe or don’t – you kinda half assed it here, IMO. Yep, we’re picking nits.
Courtney: Everything about the show this week was so…blah. Most of the routines were ho-hum, nobody really said anything interesting, and even the costumes seemed like they were half-assed. It was as if the costume folks bailed and headed to the bar after only putting half the fringe on her costume. “Yeah, that’ll do. C’mon, we can make it for happy hour if we leave now!” Can’t blame them…even I’m bored with the show at this point.
Heidi: Perhaps you and I should win this award. It was pretty damn boring in retrospect.
The “Most Telling Obsession” Award: Mark Ballas and his fondness for fences
Heidi: Really, dude. You’ve put Katherine in two cages and Bristol in one…is this a comment on how your attitude toward women in general or these two women in particular? Or is it just a sexual kink all the way around? Considering your girlfriend, I’m going with BOTH.
Courtney: I’m sure Freud would have a heydey trying to make something of Mark’s fixation with cages. Who knows what his true motives are – maybe he wants people to think he’s tough, maybe it makes him feel like he’s in control, maybe he just really wants us to know that he’s very, very into MMA. I’m just kinda bored with it, to be quite honest. You know it’s bad when I was actually slightly amused when he put Katherine in a snake basket for their salsa…nice change of pace
Heidi: A cage is a cage even when it’s a basket.
I don’t know why I get so excited, but I thought it was pretty cool when I heard that they were coming out with some Dancing with the Stars inspired Barbies. I was lucky enough to have the 3 DWTS barbies they created sent to me and as you can see from the above picture, my daughter and nieces loved them (aren’t they cute?).
The 3 DWTS inspired barbies are the Paso Doble Barbie, Samba Barbie and Waltz Barbie. The looks of the Dancing with the Stars Barbie were inspired by Brooke Burke, Kym Johnson, and Kathy Ireland. In our house, the Samba Barbie didn’t have enough clothes on and so it’s now a Snow White dress with the Samba Barbie. They are really well done and could be interesting collectors items in the future. Although, I couldn’t help letting my daughter not open them and enjoy them the way a Barbie should be enjoyed (we’ll see if my son enjoys them a way a son enjoys Barbies).
Here are the 3 DWTS inspired Barbies on Amazon for those interested:
Paso Doble Barbie
My favorite is the Paso Doble Barbie. The rich red dress is a nice contrast to the dark hair. I’m not sure if having Dancing with the Stars Barbies means that DWTS has gone mainstream or if it means it’s jumped the shark. Either way, I think it’s pretty cool. I wonder if they’ll come out with DWTS Ken dolls next.
Here are some other pictures of my daughter and nieces holding the DWTS Barbies. They had fun with this:
Ta DA!! We’re in catch up mode.
First - WEEK 5
The “Can’t Carry a Tune in a Bucket” Award: Len and Bruno, for their rendition of either “Maria” or “How Do you Solve a Problem Like Maria”…we can’t be sure.
Heidi: So, the first time I saw it, I thought they were doing a little West Side Story…the second time I saw it, I’m honestly not sure. Don’t quit your day job, boys…if I can’t tell what you’re going for, you can’t sing. If I had to bet, I would call Len Sound of Music and Bruno West Side Story.
Courtney: Screw musicals…I think we’re giving them too much credit there. I think they both were just making it up as they went along and just hoping that that the audience was even less educated than they were and would just assume that they were singing a legitimate song…and the fact that they were both doing it might somehow lend creedence to their made-up tune. Whatever it was…it was dumb.
Brooke Burke Flub O’the Night: “We’ve combined your jokes with the judges scores…”
Heidi: Have you heard the one about the judge who walked into the bar?? He tried to give the barmaid a “10″ and….well, I can’t think of a good joke. But does one really need one when Brooke is around? In all fairness, she’s been better this season than previously, but her occasional tongue tripping can be entertaining.
Courtney: My aunt used to have this parrot named Joey that would repeat literally ANY word it heard - but it would do it at random times, and sometimes form sentences that weren’t quite coherent, contextually. I’m beginning to think that Brooke is the reincarnation of Joey, the way she will occasionally swap out the word she intends to use with one she has just heard or thought about If so, I fully expect her to start making the skud missile sound effect and start calling people SOB’s by season’s end…can’t wait
The Award for Best Reaction to being Called Safe: Melissa Gilbert – Half-Pint CUSSED!!!!
Heidi: Hehehehe…loved it. Sweet, quiet Melissa gets bleeped on live television. You go girl. You really CAN take the Prairie out of the girl.
Courtney: And it was a LOOOONG cuss – like a full 5 seconds of the sound being completely bleeped out. I can only imagine what is was she said…whatever it was, I’m sure I’d be proud Read more..

Celebrity Baby Scoop has a new interview up with Brooke Burke. She talks of the challenges being a mother to four kids and on her new short film for Claritin titled “The Difference is Clear”. She also commented on the new season of Dancing With The Stars. She’s struggling with her favorite and who she thinks will win as many of us are. If interested, be sure to read the link for more.
CBS: Things are pretty hot on Dancing with the Stars already!
BBC: “I know, what a night on Monday! There were so many tears in the ballroom, it was such an emotional show. I cried and everybody in the ballroom was crying; the cast was crying. It was ridiculous [laughs]!
I think this is the strongest cast we’ve ever had as far as the quality of dancing goes. There’s different frontrunners every week and we have no idea who will make it to the semi-finals. Usually you kind of know early on, but everybody’s just so good. Even the bottom of the leader-board people are doing fantastic. It’s one of those very unpredictable season, but so much talent. Who knew with this cast?!”
CBS: Do you have a favorite?
BBC: “It’s really hard. I think Donald is unbelievable and he hasn’t had his shining moment yet. But he’s just such a loveable, charasmatic guy. But Gavin’s charming and loveable, Roshon’s an incredible dancer. I’m always partial to Derek and I think he and Maria had a great night Monday night. And of course Katherine already looks like a pro – it’s kind of ridiculous!
It’s a tough one this season. Honestly, for the first time ever, I can’t pick my top 2. And we usually place bets on who we think will win [laughs].”
