In this fun footage filmed in Phoenix, Arizona over the weekend, you can watch Emma Slater and Sasha Farber doing a Jive in Ballroom With A Twist 2. I love how you can really feel their energy!! I hope we get some more footage of the other dancers in the show too. If we do, we’ll be sure to post. Go Emma and Sasha!
Karina Smirnoff was seen at LAX over the weekend. The Dancing With The Stars pro looked so cute in a Fedora, black leather boots, and a black “Revolution” top. You can see new pics of her at Getty Images. Tristan MacManus must have been in the area too as Karina posted this fun instagram below from the plane. Apparently, they had a cooperate event in Houston, Texas together.
And isn’t this a fun instagram of Karina in the pilots seat….
This past Thursday night in the second annual Tube-A-Thon, Travis Garland performed “Abby Lee”, but, cooler yet is Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas backed him up on his guitar. Check it out if interested. After that, head to Ok! Magazine! to read how Mark would like to dance with Jennifer Lawrence in the next season of Dancing With The Stars. He also thinks Ellie Goulding would make an “amazing” partner.
Friday night, Val Chmerkovskiy was seen attending Z100Â’s Jingle Ball 2013, presented by Aeropostale, in New York City. He was all smiles as he graced the red carpet in leather. If interested, don’t miss seeing more new photos of him at Zimbio Pictures.
Speaking of the Chmerkovskiy’s, you can see a new picture of Maks when he was in Atlantic City this past week at In Touch Magazine. Maks was spotted at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Izakaya restaurant before heading to mur.mur nightclub for a pal’s bachelor party. Below you can see him dancing at a seminar in Fort Lee a couple of days ago.
Chelsie Hightower, Tony Dovolani, Peta Murgatroyd, Sasha Farber, and Emma Slater are in Phoenix, Arizona this weekend to perform in Ballroom With A Twist 2. Below is some promo they did with ABC 15. They were interviewed and they dance as well. Too fun.

Mark Ballas was a guest on the Bethenny show yesterday. He talks about his online dance battle with Derek Hough, Maria Menounos, and Amber Riley which happened on twitter on Thanksgiving day. Note how it’s not over. They plan to battle it out even more on Christmas. We plan to post the dance battles here and at Pure Derek Hough. So, stay tuned.
Doesn’t Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff look gorgeous again? Yesterday, she attended the First Annual Winter of Hope A Breakthrough In Cancer Celebration at the U.S. Grant Hotel in San Diego, California. You can lots of ne photos of her at this even at Zimbio Pictures.
Thanks to Vin for sending us this “watch out”. Apparently, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss would love to dance on Dancing With The Stars! Below is more from Enstarz…
One of the stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta might be appearing on the next season of Dancing With the Stars if she gets her way.
Kandi Burruss, who is one of the current cast members on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is interested in appearing as a contestant on season 18 of Dancing With the Stars.
One of Burruss’ followers on Twitter asked her, “Sis, would [you] ever do DWTS??” to which she responded, “”I would love to.”
Considering Burruss has previous musical experience as part of the R&B group Xscape, she may be a perfect fit for the show. Younger singers have traditionally done well on the show, such as Nicole Scherzinger and Kellie Pickler.
So, what do you think? Would you like to see Kandi dance?
A huge congratulations to SYTYCD’s and periodic Dancing With The Stars performers Allison Holker and Stephen “tWitch” Boss! The two dance stars were married this week in at Nigel Lythgoe’s Villa San-Juliette Vineyard & Winery in Paso Robles, California. I can’t imagine what the dance floor must have been like afterwards, but, below is a hint from Allison’s instagram and some quotes from ET Online and Life & Style magazine. From all of us at PureDWTS, we wish them much much happiness and to dance forever!!
For their first dance as husband and wife, Boss and Holker boogied to Adele’s One & Only on an amber LED illuminated dance floor — which was a surprise from their managers, Nelson Diaz & Tony DiStefano of A-Team Entertainment/DMG — provided by Barker Décor Service.
…and performed a hip-hop routine to Justin Bieber’s “Somebody to Love” with Allison’s 5-year-old daughter, Weslie, who choreographed the number!
