Normani Kordei Blogs DWTS Week 1 for Hollywood Life

Normani writes about week 1, her nerves and how they are in Okinawa, Japan this week for tour. I do like how she owns her dance experience and all the expectations and responsibility that comes with it. I do wish she would realize that she only did half a quickstep and perhaps tell her partner to get it together – but we can’t have everything. Visit Hollywood Life to read the rest of her blog.

Going into this first week I was definitely, and obviously, very nervous. There is a lot of expectation for me as a former dancer, and someone with dance experience, but with more expectation comes more responsibility. That really got me through this week. I always try to take everything Val [Chmerkovskiy] says into consideration. He is always giving me the best advice and critiques, and I try to listen to him a lot and take what he says and show it in our routine. He and I are out on the floor together, and I know that we are in this competition as a team, so listening to him this week has been so important for me.

The quick step was our first dance but also one of the hardest dances there is, so I am blessed that I got through it with Val’s guidance. It took me a bit to recognize that he is with me every step of the way; when we go out on floor we are out there together. So we took on the quick step together and I think we crushed it. I blacked out in the best way possible once I was out on the floor. I didn’t want the audience, or the cameras, or the judges to distract me from what I knew we could do. I just focused in on the glitter, and the lights, and the music and gave it my all.

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Julianne Hough Gives Advise To Women Suffering From Endometriosis

Judge Julianne Hough talked with Parade about endometriosis and how it effected her time on Dancing With The Stars. Wow, I never knew about this.

What was the reaction of your DWTS castmates when you had this episode?

Obviously they were pretty concerned. I think that the great thing about it, though, was that as scared as I was to talk about it, it actually brought a lot of us closer. Even years later, now that I’m judging on the show, people from the crew will be like, “I know you have endometriosis, I think I might have it.” So it’s definitely something that as scary as it was to open up about it, I’m so glad that I did because I know how important it is to be a woman and not be alone in what you’re going through. We want to be understood, not just by our peers but by our doctor, too.

How did your diagnosis affect your career and your day-to-day life?

It affected my life more before I understood it—I didn’t understand how to deal with it. It’s hard to be active sometimes. I’m a dancer, I’m onstage. There will be times where I’ll just say, “I need 10 minutes, guys”. And I don’t feel bad about it. I need to do what’s right for my body. In the past, it was very much like, “Oh, I’m fine, I’m fine,” but I was just totally lying to myself. So now it’s empowering that I don’t have to be this tough cookie anymore. I can just be me.

What advice would you give to a woman who suspects she might have endometriosis but isn’t sure what questions to ask or how to approach her doctor?

She should first talk to the women in her life, whether that was her mom, sisters, friends. And get to a place where she feels comfortable. You can go to meinendo.com to find out what endometriosis looks like. There’s diagrams—I’m very visual, so that helps me a lot—and also using the hashtag #meinendo and telling your story and symptoms and hearing other people’s stories. There’s a community where they feel connected and understood.

DWTS 24 Erika Jayne Talks On Dancing And The Real Housewives On “Watch What Happens Live” – Highlights, Photos

The Daily Mail has some gorgeous photos of Erika Jayne on “Watch What Happens Live” yesterday. They also interviewed her on Dancing With The Stars and The Real Housewives and the differences in doing them. More below and at the link.

‘You look like you’ve lost weight that you didn’t need to lose from Dancing With The Stars,’ Andy told Erika, who paired her blouse with black pants and high heels.

‘Well, I am smaller. So it’s a great side effect of the job, so thank you,’ Erika smiled happily, later joking that while she ‘lost weight’ on the dance show ‘I beef up during Housewives.’

Asked which show was harder, she called them ‘two completely different exhaustive processes,’ and laughed: ‘Dancing With The Stars is physical pain — Real Housewives is mental pain!’

Asked about her first night dancing, she said: ‘I mean … it’s OK.’

And as for the judges’ harsh scores of 24 points out of 40 for her — insisting she does not think she was ‘robbed’ — she said: ‘That’s OK too. You have to remember it’s your first time out there. It’s week one.’

She was pleased when host Andy, 48, told her he did not think she was too raunchy in her performance, while one male caller also told her: ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it — raunch it, baby!’
