Heather Morris Blogs DWTS Season 24 Week 1…and What’s Coming in Week 2

Heather’s blog for week 1/week 2 is out and I have to say I like her attitude, despite thinking they shouldn’t have cast her. I think she really doesn’t need to be nervous and I’m not sure how much of that is real and how much is a reaction to the criticism people have had about her participation. She has to know that people are going to be more critical. The headline talks about a “secret weapon” and honestly I can’t figure out what that is. Check out People – maybe you can figure it out.

After the high of Monday’s show, Maks and I took Tuesday off so he could choreograph this week’s dance — and also, so I could recuperate after our 14-hour show day. (I seriously felt like I got hit by a bus.)

Our dance this week is the jive and, again, I’m going to reveal to you right now: I’m very nervous about it.

I’ve only ever had one encounter with the jive before this and I felt that was an utter fail. I really have no desire to repeat it. But as the days went on and I got to learn the steps, I also learned to fall in love with the dance — big surprise.

The jive is way more my method of a dancing. Unlike the salsa or most ballroom styles, I’m not imprisoned into a frame with my partner — which is something I’ve never really been good at. In addition, this week I get to do a little snippet of the type of dancing I do best in this week’s number. THANK YOU, MAKS!

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Charo And Keo Motsepe Get Ready For Dancing With The Stars Week Two

Charo and Keo Motsepe talked with ABC7 in Chicago about their first performance on Dancing With The Stars and she had a few choice words to say about it. She’s so fun….

Charo may not have gotten the highest scores for her debut performance on “Dancing with the Stars” but she stole the spotlight with her salsa and sass.

There was no rest for Charo and partner Keo Motsepe the day after the 24th season premiere. It was back to rehearsing for the second episode. But the entertainer was ready to speak her mind.

“I was (expletive) off. I was expecting six,” she said.

“Mama did good she did really good she got robbed, she got robbed on those scores,” Shel Rasten, Charo’s son, said.

And Charo was not happy about her makeup job.

“They put me lips that I can suck an orange. I don’t believe it,” she said.

“Please Chicago, please, I apologize for my lips. They put so much makeup around the eyes, I did not recognize me,” she said. “I looked like a frog on her wedding day.”

More at ABC7 in Chicago. Also, thanks to Keodancerfans, here’s a hint on their next dance…

DWTS Season 24, Week One – Dancing by the Numbers!

Well, here I am again. Can’t say I’m overly excited about the show this season – silly fangirls, judges acting stupid, the producers using Julianne as a Heather apologist…all very annoying.

But there were a few actual bright spots. I loved David and Rashad, I thought Nick was funny and I liked that he wasn’t afraid to call a ringer BS.  Love Simone, but I’m hoping that Sasha doesn’t play it too safe in the coming weeks. I’ve seen a lot of criticism of their Tango, but I have to say…I think it was the music. That music was crap. Just ONCE this season I would love to see an actual TANGO.  Think Alexa and Derek – that kicked ASS. Hell, just about any Tango he’s ever done. He generally goes more traditional in the tango steps and music (when he has a choice) and I think the white flowery dress and the light, not-very-tango-y music of Simone and Sasha just ruins it for me. You can see the difference if you watch many of Derek’s – dark and intense. Read more..
