E Online went into Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec’s rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars. They show a little of them dancing. They also ask them on the dating rumors. Kym says they are too busy dancing (I believe it. I don’t think he’s her type?)
Willow Shields almost ‘blanked out’ on Dancing With The Stars last week. She writes all about it in her new blog at Access Hollywood. She also writes about her and Mark’s Argentine Tango coming up tonight as well. Check out how she told Mark, “No more goofin’ around…” LOL! I love this girl!
As Mark and I were walking to our starting position I walked right past actor Jeff Goldblum sitting in the audience (yes, I still fangirl over things), I almost BLANKED OUT, forgot why I was on the ballroom dance floor, instead I wanted to yell to my brother and sister in the audience, “Hey guys look! ‘Jurassic Park!’ ‘Jurassic Park!'”. Then I told myself to focus, you must focus! I don’t think 15 million people are tuning in to hear why some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around Steven Spielberg movies!
As Mark and I waited for the music to start, I thought to myself about the dress rehearsal a couple hours before. The TV show placed stand-in judges so the cameras could plan their shots and stuff. We nailed the dress rehearsal and the stand-in judges (who I think were camera operators and grips) really loved it! Yeah I know they’re just stand-ins but hopefully we get the same response.
Done. I thought we did awesome! It wasn’t perfect but we did what we had planned on doing and Mark felt really good about it too! The judges had some great things to say and I was so happy for this, but the scores were lower than I had hoped. Darn. It does show I still have a lot of work to do! I did manage to bite my lip and not argue with the judges that the stand-in judges gave us better scores, I don’t think Len Goodman would have appreciated it!
Back to work. The next morning I really had to move on, there’s really no time to worry about my scores, I’ve got another dance to learn, the Argentine Tango. I absolutely LOVE this dance, but I’ve never done it myself. It’s so beautiful and intense, but can Mark and I pull this off? Well I know Mark can but can I? I’m pretty hard on myself and my low scores made me feel like I needed to work even harder. As we started to train for the tango I joked with Mark, “No more goofing around this week Mark, we’ve got work to do!” We HAVE worked hard the past few days, but I do admit, we still goofed around a lot.

Sharna Burgess posted this new Kenneth Cole Ad at her twitter. It’s awesome and so fitting for why they picked Noah Galloway. No words needed to explain….
Rumer Willis opened up about her family life, her parents, and Dancing With The Stars (they don’t have any competition? Did hear that right??) on Good Morning America today…
The odds makers have placed their bets for week 2 of Dancing With The Stars Season 20 at Sports Bovada. Isn’t it interesting that Rumer and Val aren’t at the top? Even after all the pimping of them from the judges this past week and the media drinking the Kool Aid, the odds makers didn’t buy it. Ha!! Though if I was them, I would switch Rumer and Ryker. I’m shocked they have Willow so low. I’d put her more towards the top. Same with Redfoo. Take a look below and let us know what you think in comments. Read on to see what Miss Heidi and Court think too….
Nastia Liukin 6/5
Rumer Willis 5/1
Riker Lynch 6/1
Noah Galloway 7/1
Michael Sam 15/2
Robert Herjavec 10/1
Chris Soules 20/1
Patti LaBelle 20/1
Suzanne Somers 33/1
Willow Shields 33/1
Charlotte McKinney 50/1
Last week’s odds:
Nastia Liukin 2/1
Noah Galloway 4/1
Riker Lynch 7/1
Michael Sam 9/1
Charlotte McKinney 10/1
Patti LaBelle 12/1
Suzanne Somers 12/1
Willow Shields 12/1
Rumer Willis 16/1
Robert Herjavec 20/1
Heidi: Well, Rumer moved up, but only to 5/1 – and after all that pimpage she got! Going last, having the judges drool and proclaim her the winner…seems we weren’t the only ones who don’t buy it just yet. :-) Interesting that they have Nastia at 6/5 – I am still not convinced that she can win. Derek, after 5 wins, could choreograph 12 Emmy winning routines and still not win, plus they are pretty severely handicapped by being in NYC. Poor Nastia – Derek is a bit of an anchor with his track record and an audience who seems to think Pee-wee-baseball-everyone-gets-a-trophy is an acceptable way to hold a competition. Anyway, I think Michael is probably too low – and that Willow needs to be up with Robert. As for Noah, as much as I like him, I’m not so sure he’s going to finish as high as 4th place. It’s hard to say – Amy covered the inspiring territory, so do people expect him to dance as well as Amy? Are they inured to the injured? Is it different because he’s a veteran? Or did people even forget Amy was a double amputee because she was paired with Derek and did so well? What the general audience thinks is what will dictate how well he finishes. I don’t mean to sound callous…but people ARE callous as we saw with Amy. Of course, Amy threatened the precciousssssss….
Courtney: First off, an apology – these odds are late because of moi, as I was out-of-town this weekend and haven’t had a chance to even look at these until right meow. I guess my overall feeling about them, like my power rankings last week, is “Hmmm.” I find it interesting that the oddsmakers didn’t seem to buy into the OTT praise heaped onto Rumer, and the obvious “this could be your season!” subliminal messaging thrown at Val. As I told Heidi & Vogue – I think the oddsmakers’ BS detectors have gotten quite a bit better-calibrated over the seasons, and they probably recognize by now that that pimping doesn’t always work (hello, Vajanel). But they DID seem to buy into the nonsense the judges threw Michael about his feet – honestly, I think his performance was the most underrated of last week’s dances, and he got an incongruous amount of nitpicking from the judges. That’s what puzzles me the most, because I actually think Michael could be the biggest threat to the big 3 (Rumer, Riker, & Nastia) at the moment. I also think they aren’t quite sure what to make of Noah just yet – demographically-speaking, he should be a big draw; but ability-wise, he’s no Amy right off the bat. I think we’ll see them get a bit more decisive with his odds over the next few weeks, as we see what he’s actually capable of.
So sorry that this has been much delayed this week – I’m still trying to catch up from my whirlwind trip to New York City. If anyone cares, I saw Book of Mormon, New York Spring Spectacular (twice) and Wicked. All were tremendous. As I was telling someone on Twitter, Derek actually sings as much as he dances in this show and that was a real treat. Great voice on that boy. My favorite line from the very sacrilegious Book of Mormon?? “Jesus thinks you’re a dick.” OMG, I laughed and laughed and laughed. Read more..
Julianne Hough looks like a ray of sunshine as always. She attended the Create & Cultivate’s Speaker Celebration at The Line Hotel in Los Angeles, California this weekend. To see more photos, see Getty Images.
