Gee, Mark, just when I start to actually LIKE you again, you attempt to give the Derek-Myths some actual substance. Careful, your jealousy is showing. Then, look at your own partners – you’ve not exactly paid your dues either. The average age of your partners is 26, while the average age of Derek’s partners is 33. Being eliminated first doesn’t give you cred or “dues” – it just means your partner wasn’t popular (and that she wasn’t paired with Derek, since he’s had some unknown/unpopular people as well). You get it right later in the interview AFTER throwing Derek under the bus – it is luck of the draw. Too bad you had to try to discredit Derek’s accomplishments as “luck” before you got to that TRUTH.
Kanan’s Rules of UBNRadio interviewed Dancing With The Stars Sharna Burgess and her boyfriend and dancer Paul Kirkland last night. Sharna starts out the interview highlighting her dancing career and how she met Paul in the movie “Street Dance 2″ (*just ordered this on Blu-ray! ). Interesting as Sharna also mentions how she and Paula are both “Gemini’s” which Sharna says is like having “4 personalities living in one house”. Sharna is also asked about Dancing With The Stars. She was first asked to do the show in 2009 during her run in “Burn The Floor” on Broadway. At the time, she didn’t want to quit. She wanted to finish the show out and also she was bound to a contract, but, the producers of Dancing With The Stars waited (even after making “Street Dance 2″ as well) and kept calling until Sharna could finally do the show in 2011. After that, they chat about Sharna’s Dancing With The Stars partners Andy Dick and Keyshawn Johnson and the differences between them in personality on the dance floor. Not much is mentioned about the new season of Dancing With The Stars except that Sharna says they are “in the dark” like we are about who’s dancing and what will happen. Fun interview. Be sure you listen to it in full to get more details in the Podcast section at Kanan’s Rules of UBNRadio.
As you may have seen, Vogue earlier reported that Peta was out on the town with James Maslow of Big Time Rush (and Nickelodeon). In what may be a case of EPIC denial, his fans are all claiming/hoping/praying that he was only out with her because DWTS starts next month and “maybe they’re partners.” I, of course, got a chuckle out of this because in the past I’ve seen way too many fangirls desperately hoping DWTS was the explanation and not just a good, old fashioned DATE.
But since I laughed, an interesting thing happened. Julz Tocker followed a couple of the girls who were speculating that James was going to be on DWTS. For me, that elevated this to a “Hmmmm…” post. NOT saying he’s going to be on the show, just saying that I want to put it out there as a huge speculation or minor possibility. This isn’t even a rumor at this point. Honestly, I doubt it because Peta would be foolish to be seen out with her DWTS Partner at least a month before the announcement is made – not to mention that she’s probably not even sure yet she’s getting a partner this season.
But ya know? We’ve seen weirder things happen and we’ve seen things that never happened before happen in the recent past – like a person who is on a show on another network actually make it to DWTS (Amber Riley).
Not to mention that I’m curious to see if certain websites who like to get their news from us (and the Daily Mail) also pick up this story.
If this is true – and it seems legit – they certainly have been. This is a real shame as this is one of the things that made DWTS so unique in television today. Yes, we occasionally critiqued the singers for butchering a song – but the orchestra was killer. That said, I think I mused some time ago that this was one way to cut costs if that was required. The claim is that they are going in a way to attract a younger crowd. I tend to think that’s an excuse. You?
Okay, we’ve reported on Cody Simpson a couple times as rumored for Season 18, here and here. Now, it seems, from his own mouth he’s confirming that he’s on – and there is much squealing on twitter from his fans. But does he really confirm?? I hear the word “probably” thrown in there. What do you think??

Hmmm….really?? I am skeptical. From GWL magazine:
First up is the beautiful and newly-engaged Naya Rivera, who is rapper Big Sean’s fiancee’ and most known for her role as Santana Lopez on FOX musical drama, Glee. Although Naya has yet to confirm or deny the news, the source confirms she’s “very excited about this opportunity” as she prepares to release her debut solo album this Spring and currently planning her wedding.
We also hear that singer and model Cassie Ventura will be shaking her tail-feather on the show this season. An inside source tells Star Magazine that “Cassie loves to dance” and, although she has actually passed on a similar opportunity in the past, she is now ready to join the new season of the show.
Naya Rivera is Amber’s cast mate at Glee and would undoubtedly be good…but two Glee stars in a row? Would not surprise me, but I think it’s important to remind people that rumors that come out this early are usually just that…RUMORS. They usually turn out wrong. But with her coming out with a new album in the spring??
As for Cassie – never heard of her before, but maybe that’s a good reason for her to do the show. Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up.
What do you call it when some Australian dude claims that DWTS invited him to be on the show in March?? He says it’s when he’s going to be in LA to work on his next album. Um…okay….who are you again? Cody Simpson Website and Cody Simpson Wiki. Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up on this one….like, hours ago. Hey, me and Vogue were both Xmas shopping, working and generally living life. Sue us.
Pssst…Cody…when you do this much blabbing the offer tends to get recinded. Just sayin’.
Tristan – the Hunk ‘O burnin’ love. This works for me.
Here’s the previous segment with Valerie…
Hey all and for those interested, don’t miss seeing a repeat episode of The Katie Show today. This past May, Dancing With The Stars judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli guessed on the show as well as hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet. They talk of the 300th episode of Dancing With The Stars. Pro Louis Van Amstel also shows Katie some dance moves and then they dance. However, what’s extra is fun in watching this episode again is the cast trying to coax Katie into dancing for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. So, be sure to watch. You can also see our previous posting with videos of this episode at this link. I love too how they have this page set up at her site asking viewers if they’d like to see Katie on Dancing With The Stars.
