Not sure when this radio interview took place, but, it’s a good one. Sharna Burgess talks with GJ Reynolds Beach Life Style Radio Show all about Dancing With The Stars and it’s influence on dance in general. “Ballroom” is cool. They also talk about the competitive part of the show, what kind of training it takes to transform the celebrities, keeping in shape in the off season, and lots more. Excellent!
This is just too cool for words! Go Tristan MacManus!! Now if only we could have seen MORE of him! *cries*
Merry Christmas All!!! We hope you have the most amazing and blessed holiday!! Note that we may be slow to update because of the holiday, but, we couldn’t help posting on a few things. First, Karina Smirnoff helped with the Los Angeles Mission Christmas Eve Celebration yesterday. You can see some beautiful new photos of her at Getty Images. She’s so cute as always. Pic above is courtesy of her instagram.
Also, don’t miss staying tuned to this link at Pure Derek Hough as the dance wars between The Hough’s, The Ballas’, and The Menounos’ have began. They have been teasing for what’s to come. Below is Mark and Corky Ballas. lol It’s good to see Corky again….

Isn’t this a fun take of Dancing With The Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet? I love her boots! This past week, she held an intimate holiday party at her home in Malibu to help promote Wii Sports Club-Golf. You can read more about the party and see more new pics at Business Wire. Picture below courtesy of Brooke’s instagram.
Aww, I’m loving this news. Above Tristan MacManus is pictured with musician and actress Nikki Lorenzo and RJ Mitt. Nikki posted the photo at her twitter account with news that her new “Work That Charm” music video will be released on Christmas Day! Fun! *can’t wait to see what they’ve done for it!
The pros and cast of Dancing With The Stars have been posting such fun instagrams and twitter pics as they celebrate Christmas. Below are just a few for now. We may post more if they do and time permitting. Also, stay tuned as there may be some new dance wars coming up on Christmas day as Maria Menounos tweeted this comment at twitter last night: “Ok @MsAmberPRiley @derekhough @juliannehough @MarkBallas …I have some pretty elaborate stuff ready..better practice! #christmasdancewars”!!

Isn’t this a fun picture? This past week, we saw Derek Hough enjoying and getting ready for Christmas all over LA land! You can view lots of fun photos like the one above at Zimbio Pictures. Pure Derek Hough has even more photos from other days when Derek was seen shopping as well as news on a new book release called “Breakthrough Moments: Lessons from a Life in Motion”. If interested, be sure you pre-order your copy at a special price at Amazon. No doubt …this will be a ‘must read’ and a great gift for dancing and Derek Hough fans!
Isn’t this a great Christmas photo? According to Cheryl’s twitter, she is spending the holiday in Maui, Hawaii with her family. The pic above is from her hotel. Also, there are some fun new shots of Cheryl soaking in the sun at the Daily Mail. She looks gorgeous in a gold bikini and black kafton. Even without an ounce of make-up, she glows just like she did this past season on Dancing With The Stars.
Also, have you ever seen Cheryl’s home at Christmas? We posted this last year around this time, but, it’s fun to take a look at it again.
