She looks like she’s going to be good. Let us know what you think!
But, she’s “competitive” and a “go getter”. Take a look and let us know what you think?
Hmmm….she looks better than I first thought she would be.
For some reason I am having issues hearing this interview. I hope none of you won’t? Anyway, below is Peta and James on KTLA this morning….
Well, the producers haven’t given much new info regarding the switch – likely because they don’t know – but I do read it as one week. As you might imagine, however, it’s the second paragraph that has me most interested. Thanks to Kaitlyn for sending this to me. From the ABC Press Release:
“Episode 1801” — “Dancing with the Stars” is back, and for the first time ever the show will premiere with a massive opening number featuring all pro dancers as they perform live with musical guest Jason Derulo. Derulo will sing his mega hit song “Talk Dirty,” marking the first time ever a musical guest has accompanied a season’s opening number. Each couple will then perform a Cha Cha, Foxtrot or Contemporary routine, vying for America’s vote. The two-hour season premiere begins MONDAY, MARCH 17 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network
This season, “Macy’s Stars of Dance” returns to “Dancing with the Stars” with creative oversight by Emmy® Award-winning Choreographer and Pro Dancer, Derek Hough. “Macy’s Stars of Dance” showcases some of the best choreography and performers from all different styles of dance, and gives them the opportunity to perform in front of a national audience.
As previously announced on “Good Morning America”, the competition will feature a new game-changing twist called “The Switch Up.” For the first time ever, America will be given the power to vote and change celebrities and professional dance pairings. This new rule will affect all couples as they will be required to switch partners at one point in the season. Never before have dance partnerships been split up during the course of competition.

Just a little starter for a Monday wake up! If you head to the Daily Mail here and here, you can view some of the cast arriving to rehearsals over the weekend. I’m loving Karina’s hair and I want a pair of Peta’s sunglasses.
In other mentions, Diana Nyad was named as one of the “Sportwomen of the Year” at the LA Sports Awards. Below is more from UCLA Bruins….
In other award presentations, Clippers All-Star guard Chris Paul was honored as 2013 Sportsman of the Year and record-setting long distance swimmer Diana Nyad and Sparks star Candace Parker were co-named the Sportswomen of the Year.
Kym Johnson is in the news too! She’s going to host the 2014 PWN Awards for Pole Dancing. We thank Sally for sending us this news. You can view a beautiful poster of her at the link.
Carrie Anne Inaba is currently vacationing in Italy, but, she promises to be home soon in time for the new season of Dancing With The Stars. I’m loving this pic she posted at her twitter and facebook. She looks so happy.
And just one more thing….7 more days and counting until….
Ok, that is all for now!! And Jim, thanks for the pic above! Awesome pose of Karina and Sean!
Did any of you catch “Hello Ross” Friday night? According to Lynne, Val Chmerkovksiy was a surprise guest. Lynne tells us Ross was bemoaning the fact he wasn’t on Dancing With The Stars and how much he would love to dance with Val Chmerkovksiy. Then suddenly, Val enters the stage, grabs Ross out of his chair, and dances him across the floor ending with a dip. LOL! Be watching this link at E Online as they may post a video soon. Thanks to Lynne for sending us this news and the instagram below.
Isn’t that a hot pose with Peta Murgatroyd and James Maslow? Love it!!! In other media things to share!!! If you head to the Daily Mail, you can see some of the cast arriving to rehearsals again. You can see Danica McKeller, Mark Ballas, Henry Byalikov, Karina Smirnoff, Diana Nyad, Peta Murgatroyd, Candace Cameron-Bure, Val Chmerkovskiy, Nene Leakes, and Whitney Carson. But, if that wasn’t enough, All Access also has some pics of Cody Simpson, Karina Smirnoff, and Witney Carson here, here (Jim, will this do? ), and here.
Ok, that is all for now except I’m kind of wondering what Tom Bergeron means with this tweet?
Spent a few hours annoying the @DancingABC producers yesterday. They’ve got some fun treats up their spray-tanned sleeves for Season 18.
Be sure to read this link for the convo that took place afterwards.
Also, what is Emma and Billy Dee up to in this new @DancingABC pic?
LOL Loves Emma’s eyes!! And this is fun too…
Ok, Vogue over and out for now!!xx
Your Tango recently interviewed pro Gleb Savchenko Kathy Duliakas’ Celebrity Oscar Suite. He answer a few questions about Brooke Burke Charvet, Erin Andrews, and if celebs know what are getting into when they do Dancing With The Stars. Below is a take. Be sure to read more at the link where he also talks a little of his wife Elena Samodanova and fatherhood.
YourTango: We’re you shocked to hear about Brooke Burke-Charvet getting fired?
Gleb Savchenko: I was shocked. I was like, ‘No way!’
YourTango: Do you know why she was let go?
Gleb Savchenko: They were saying the show needed a change. The band was changed, too. Honestly, I love Brooke. You couldn’t wish for a better host. She was so classy, so beautiful, so kind. She was made for the ballroom.
YourTango: What do you think of new co-host Erin Andrews?
Gleb Savchenko: I don’t really know her. I’ve never met her, but she seems nice. She seems tougher than Brooke.
YourTango: Do the celebrities understand what they’re getting into?
Gleb Savchenko: No. If they knew, they would never do it! It’s really hard — hours and hours a day. They think they’re going to have a lot of fun, hang out in the studio, dance with a pretty boy, but no, it’s a lot of hard work.
According to E News, Dancing With The Stars first LIVE performer will be Jason Derulo!He’s going to perform his hit song featuring 2 Chainz “Talk Dirty” . Too fun!! This season can’t start soon enough. Bring it on!
