DWTS TV Heads Up For Dec. 7th -9th, Cheryl Burke’s Hot Pink Christmas And More

Just a few TV heads up for the weekend! First, Cheryl Burke’s home will be featured in a “Celebrity Holiday Homes” special on HGTV at 8:00pm ET tonight (Friday). Below are some details from the TampaBay.com….

Celebrity Holiday Homes, 8 p.m., HGTV Three “celebrities” — Dee Snider, Cheryl Burke and Bebe Winans — get home makeovers. If they were actually celebrities, they wouldn’t need a TV show to redecorate their houses.

You can see a preview and some photos of Cheryl and her home at HGTV. It’s a “hot pink” Christmas.

This isn’t Dancing With The Stars related, but, if you like “dancing” movies like I do (and holiday movies as well), you might be interested in watching this movie on Hallmark airing tomorrow night called “Come Dance With Me“….

Come Dance with Me, 8 p.m., Hallmark Andrew McCarthy is a white collar guy who has a crush on his dance teacher. You’ll be thinking about Blane from Pretty in Pink the whole time.

ADDING: Thanks to Codebear, below is the segment with Cheryl and her home….

Emmitt Smith Chats On Casting Football Players For Dancing With The Stars And More

Emmitt Smith tells the Huffington Post that he’s “not upset, only disappointed” that he didn’t win the All-Stars mirror-ball trophy. He also had some thoughts on casting future football players. For instance, below are his thoughts on Tim Tebow and Victor Cruz….

“I don’t think Tim Tebow would kill it. I don’t think he would do well on the dance floor. I think he would be limited. Victor Cruz might kill it. At least, he could salsa,” says Emmitt.

Speaking of football players on the show more generally, Emmitt said, “It opens another level of exposure I wouldn’t get from the game itself. When I was playing the game, I had a helmet on my head; people rarely saw my face. I think it’s a smart business move, but at the end of the day, you have to have some of the same qualities. I’m known as a champion on the football field, I wanted to be known as a champion in the ballroom. So you don’t want to just get in for the exposure, because you can be exposed positively or negatively.”

So true!! That goes for everyone too not just football players. If a celeb is going to dance, do it for the love of dance, not just for exposure. Also, bring on VICTOR CRUZ! :D

You can read more at the Huffington Post including Emmitt’s thoughts on White dancers versus Black dancers.

DWTS Karina Smirnoff Attends Lucky Brand’s New Flag Store Opening, Information On New Movie Revealed

How does Karina Smirnoff look this time? The Dancing With The Stars pro attended the opening of Lucky Brand’s new flagship store at the Time Warner Center in New York City yesterday. From her sexy, lace sweater to her black and white pumps, I think she looks dazzling. You can see more photos of her at this event at Zimbio Pictures.

There has also been a little more revealed about her new movie with Dancing With The Stars season 12 partner, Ralph Macchio. US Weekly is reporting the movie is about a 10 year old boy who becomes fascinated with a beautiful older woman. The beautiful older woman will be played by Karina. Below are a few more details….

The dancer, 34, is currently filming a new movie written and directed by the actor, 51, about a 10-year-old boy who becomes fascinated with a beautiful yet troubled older woman he sees dancing in a neighboring house. Smirnoff plays the woman — and she couldn’t be more excited.

“It is a dream come true to have this opportunity in working with Ralph again,” she tells Us. “He wrote such an inspiring script, and I’m grateful to be a part of it. The story is sweet but profound, and my character is very compelling. I’m loving the process!”

Be sure to read the full article at US Weekly.

Sounds really cool. I can’t wait to see it!

PureDWTS Audience Casting Watch: Christie Brinkley, Danica McKellar, Adrienne Maloof….

Sometimes I have to wonder about the celebs who show up in the audience to watch Dancing With The Stars and if they might not be considering dancing on the show in the future? For instance, Emmitt Smith was in the audience for the Dancing With The Stars Season 14 finals (or was it the semi finals?). The next thing we know, he was picked to do the Dancing With The Stars All Stars season.

I also remember Christie Brinkley being in the audience for Season 14’s Semi Finals which brings me to this piece on Anderson Cooper yesterday with Christie doing a Samba with this season’s Dancing With The Stars All Star Gilles Marini.

Nice, huh? :)

During her run in “Chicago”, Access Hollywood asked Christie if she’d ever do Dancing With The Stars. She wouldn’t say yes or no. In fact, she said, “never say never”. She also said TPTB have asked her to do the show before, but, the timing has never been right.

While atttending “Chicago”, Kym Johnson said would like to see Christie dance and remarked “hopefully” Christie would do the show someday in this interview…. Read more..

DWTS Season 16 RUMOR: Emily Maynard To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

We’ve been down this route before with Radar Online, so be sure you take this rumor with a grain of salt. I will say though that Emily Maynard has all the makings of fitting on Dancing With The Stars perfectly. Do you agree? Below is more from Radar Online via Star Magazine.

Emily Maynard is ditching her search for true love and putting on her dancing shoes to jive away her heartache!

The newly-single Bachelorette is officially locked in as a contestant on the upcoming 16th season of Dancing With The Stars, reveals the new issue of Star magazine, and while it is news to the fans of both ABC shows, Emily has known about it for six months!

“When she signed her contract to be on The Bachelorette, ABC also had her sign on to commit to doing Dancing with the Stars. She loves being in the limelight,” a source told Star, adding that while some of the other hoofers are desperate to land certain pros as their partners, all Emily seemingly cares about is dancing her way into a television career.

“Emily told me the real reason she wants to do the show is to help get herself her own talk show,” dished the insider. “She’s terrified of losing her fame. She loves being famous and has wanted it her entire life.”

You can read the full article at Radar Online. Picture above courtesy of Zimbio Pictures.

So, if true, who do you see Emily dancing with? I say MAKS!! :D

Heidi: You want to put sweet little Emily with Maks!?!? :-) How about Tristan?? Or Henry?? Or anyone other than Maks or Tony?? :-D Seriously, though – Radar Online went from having a great track record to bombing for a few seasons in a row. It would not surprise me in the slightest if Emily were to show up, but I kinda doubt it. Really, the producers need to get away from casting their family on this show and branch out. But hey, maybe Deena needs a new client. :::snort::: I would have to look, but I also think that “rumors” (or fabrications) that come out this far in advance usually turn out to be WRONG. We’ll see.

Vogue: Good point. I wouldn’t mind her paired with Tristan or Henry as well….and Derek (yes, I still hope he will change his mind and come back? :( )

Heidi: NO DEREK! I forbid him coming back to this show. Please, god, no. But if he were, he might end up with her. They seem to LOVE putting him with other blondes. Anyway…I think if Derek is back on this show it’s because they wouldn’t let him out. They’ve monkeyed around with pros and contracts before, so…

DWTS Anna Trebunskaya And Kym Johnson Attend Donnie & Marie Christmas In Los Angeles Premiere

Pictured above is Dancing With The Stars Anna Trebunskaya and Kym Johnson! The two dancing queens attended the “Donny and Marie Osmond’s Christmas” premiere in Los Angeles, California last night looking glamorous as ever. What do you think? You can see more fantastic shots of them as well as other celebs at Film Magic and Getty Images. I was able to see the Donnie and Marie Show in Las Vegas in October and wow, what an energetic show. Marie has some serious pipes and Donny can still dance with the best of them. I especially loved how they interacted with the audience. If you get the chance, be sure to see one of their shows.
