Bonner Bolton Talks Of How Sharna Burgess And DWTS Has Helped Him (Video)

For those missing Bonner Bolton (like me), here he is talking to Entertainment Tonight in a new facebook chat. He talks of how Sharna Burgess and Dancing With The Stars has made him a better person. Aww….

ETA: Sharna has written a blog at US Weekly. She had a gut feeling it might be her and Bonner’s time to go home this past week, but, she is so proud of him and what he accomplished. More below and at the link.

I usually wake up with a feeling when it’s time. I woke up that Monday incredibly calm, but knew I needed to pack my bags because this could be it. But not because I don’t think Bonner deserved to go further. I had that feeling because everybody left in the competition was so dang good. It could have been anybody’s game. We’re watching some incredible dancers go home week to week, and it’s hard to know what the result will be. I can only say that with my nine partners, I’ve had a gut instinct that I knew when I was going home, and this was no different. Obviously I was hoping that I was wrong.

Seeing how far Bonner has come in the last eight weeks into this competition is phenomenal. As his coach, watching him start to move better, start to move with more confidence and feel better with his injuries, is kind of the greatest gift that I could have.

He trusted me and allowed me to do what I do best and that is to coach him and teach him how to dance. I really took the time to understand his injuries and what he could and couldn’t do, and to understand him as a person, because a lot of teaching is understanding the personality that is in front of you and how to help them. It’s not just dance that I’m teaching this person, it’s how to be confident and how to just take charge of the situation, and that is what I believe Bonner did this season. I watched him grow and I’m incredibly proud of him.

Now I am about to head on tour with Dancing With the Stars Live. One of my favorite things about the tour is getting to meet all of our amazing fans that support us and have kept us on the air for the past 24 seasons. We owe them so much gratitude, and this is kind of like us giving back to our fans. I’m excited — I can’t wait to get out there and dance my butt off!

Dancing with the Stars Season 24, Week NINE – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

What crap ass theme do we have this week?  Just two plain ole dances? Seems like I heard about a theme of some kind but it’s not coming to me right now. Oh lord, Judge’s Challenge. What BS.

George posted the songs and dances and look at that – Normani is the ONLY person to not have two ballroom dances. Jesus, just give her the damn MBT and quit this charade of a show. This show has never been more transparent or more disgusting. Just spare us all and cancel it already. If they’re going to tilt it heavily in Val’s favor every season what’s the damn point?? I guess it’s to keep him in a job since he has nothing else to do.

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. :-)

New David Ross Interviews On His New Book, Dancing With The Stars, Parenting, And More

David Ross was on Good Morning America today. He talked on his new book and how excited he is to be in the semi-finals on Dancing With The Stars. He plans to dance for the rest of his life. So cute!

You can also read a fun interview at Parade. I love what David said on his kids and parenting. What a good Dad!

You look like you’re having fun.

For sure. I don’t take myself very seriously. I’m out to have a good time. And keeping with the theme of the last couple years of my career and some of my great teammates, like Ryan Dempster, that talked to me about enjoying the moment. This was definitely something way outside my box.

I also wanted to be an example for my kids (Landri, 7, Cole, 6, and Harper, 1). I’m always talking to my son especially, about doing stuff that you may not think you’re good at but you might enjoy. I wanted to put myself out there and show them Dad may fall flat on his face but he’s willing to try something he’s not good at in front of millions of people.

Do you think being on the show has made an impact on them?

I’m hoping so. That’s the thing with parenting. It’s so scary because you’re doing the best you can and trying to be the person that you want your kids to be and give them the values that you feel like are important. You don’t know how it’s gonna pay off.

A few weeks ago, I was getting ready to get voted off and my wife said my kids were so stressed. They didn’t want dad to get voted off.

Lots more at Parade.
