I haven’t had a chance to listen to the whole thing yet, so I can’t give my full commentary.
Thank you Extra and George Pennacchio for all of these awesome interviews from last night!! The couples talk about prepping for next weeks dances and more. George may post more. Keep watching this link in case he does.
Carrie Ann Inaba has written a new blog at Parade. She rates her favorite couples on Dancing With The Stars so far in the “Feel Good” and “Sexy, Sexy” categories. So far, at the top of those lists are Alfonso Ribiero and Randy Couture. Lots more at Parade including her thoughts on Julianne Hough and pictures of her fur babies.
Speaking of her fur babies, she also recently founded the Carrie Ann Inaba Animal Project (CAIAP, caiap.org) to help cats and dogs in several different ways. “I have always wanted to build a sanctuary to give animals a safe place to live out their lives,” she explains. “Since I was a young child, this has been the dream. Starting CAIAP is all about working towards that. It will take a lot of financial support to get there, but I have faith we will.” To read an article about it, see Animal Wellness Magazine.
Apparently, Carrie Ann Inaba, Gleb Savchenko, and Karina Smirnoff are currently in downtown Los Angeles shooting something for Dancing With The Stars. They just posted the instagrams below. Could there be others in the shoot too?
Also, heads up Gleb fans! According to a few fans at twitter, last night he tweeted he was dancing in the opening number on Monday (HERE is a pic of his tweet thanks to @DWTSGossip). Interesting and I so hope this is true!!
If only we could be a fly on a wall at the new promo shoot for Dancing With The Stars Season 19!! So far, below are some pictures for what’s coming out on social media to maybe get a glimpse for what’s maybe happening “behind the scenes”. Let’s hope the pros, judges, etc. will tweet out more pics soon!! If they do, we’ll update this post. So, keep checking back.
And these additions… Read more..
I can’t get enough of the new photos of Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough, and Julianne Hough at the 2014 Emmy Awards. Below are some more photos from last night. E news is reporting “white” gowns were the trend of the night and Carrie Anne and Julianne couldn’t have looked more stunning in theirs (in my opinion). Click the Getty links and see Pure Derek Hough if you want more pictures and info on the night! Note: Derek and Julianne both attended HBO’s Emmy Party afterwards. Derek even danced with Sofia Vergara. HOT!
So many beautiful new photos of Dancing With The Stars Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough, and Julianne Hough at the 2014 Emmy Awards. Be sure to see them all at Getty Images here, here, and here. Keep watching the links. They may add more. Keep checking Pure Derek Hough for lots of Emmy coverage there as well on Derek. Heidi and I are tag teaming. Too fun!
Who knows if this news is true or not? Though note how TMZ has been a good source for Dancing With The Stars pre-season rumors for several years. Read on for more….
Sources connected with the show tell us … they’ve made an offer to Julianne to become the 4th judge … the other 3 are coming back. We’re told the 2 sides are in negotiations and are expected to make the deal.
Julianne left the show years ago to pursue an acting and singing career, but it’s been rough going … particularly “Rock of Ages” and “Footloose.” We’re told her commitment to DWTS is only a couple of hours a week, so she’ll still pursue acting.
And there’s this … our sources say Maksim Chmerkovskiy wanted the judging gig and wanted it BADLY … and he’s really pissed he didn’t get it and has made it known to producers.
I hope this is true. I love Julianne and I’m an even BIGGER fan after the Move Live on Tour! I’m also glad the three regular judges will be back.
ETA: Heidi here…TMZ has updated the story and removed the bit about Maks. I think someone made a phone call – perhaps Maks will still get his shot at a guest judging moment. But maybe not. Who knows?
ETA2: “Sources” talk to E News on Julianne and if she’s coming on as a 4th judge. Apparently, she hasn’t signed on…yet. A rep for ABC won’t comment. More below and at this link.
Not on my DWTS, please. He’s one of those guys who thinks he knows everything about everything but really doesn’t know all that much about anything. But hey, if you’re hot, you’ll be a hit whether you can sing…I mean dance, or not. But really – how funny would it be if Simon got to be Guest judge and Maks didn’t? From The TV Page:
Usually when they bring a new boss into a show it is so they can shake it up…
Yeah, but this time it is not. The show did really great last season. Quite early on in the season, Conrad who was the EP decided to leave. He had done 18 seasons. He decided he wanted a new challenge. So in this case the show is doing great and we have to be really respectful of the format.
So how are you going to put your stamp on the show?
Look, viewers love the show. I would be a fool to go in there and say, “I want to put my stamp on this. I am going to go in there and shake things up.” But there are a couple of significant changes that I am in the process of making that I think people will notice.
How many judges do you think will be on the panel?
For the moment, we are looking at three. There is a possibility for a fourth. We are talking about that possibility. But we have to see. I think you have just got to get the right mix of people. I think Bruno (Tonioli) , Len (Goodman) and Carrie Ann (Inaba) are brilliant. Certainly wouldn’t lose any of them…
Carrie Ann Inaba was on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night. They dance and get goofy. She tries to convince him to dance on Dancing With The Stars too and he changes the subject. Carrie Ann also chats about her new Italian boyfriend. Below are a couple of clips. You can view the entire episode at this link.
ETA: below is Carrie Ann on Access Hollywood today too. She talks about Dancing With The Stars more in this interview. Adding: and check out how she thinks Maks and Meryl should get married. lol
