For some reason, I couldn’t see this interview at Access Hollywood, so thanks to @DWTSGossip for posting. I will say it again…I love Allison.
Choreographer Mandy Moore and Dancing With The Stars Mark Ballas posted some interesting instagrams over the weekend. The first instagram below from Mandy had this quote: “…makin moves…this season is gonna be awesome”. Hmmm, are these some of celebs with their pros? Or pros with pros (as Nobleze posted in comments)?
The second instagram from Mark below said: “Rehearsals and stuff.. @nopenother @derekhough @iamvalc @henrybyalikov #dwts @dancingabc”. Does this mean Henry Byalikov is one of this season’s troupe members? And who is the darker haired guy and lady? Could they be new troupe members? Or maybe they are helping Mandy? They could be producers too like Heidi just pointed out to me.
Sure makes one wonder, doesn’t it?
ETA: Mandy just posted a new instagram saying: “lucky lady to dance with these kats”…
I don’t know about you, but, I can’t get enough of the new Emmy Party photos. Below is Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff at the 2014 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party at Fig & Olive Melrose Place on in West Hollywood, California over the weekend. Gorgeous!
Access Hollywood Interviews New Dancing With The Stars Pros Keoikantse Motsepe and Artem Chigvintsev
Keoikantse Motsepe and Artem Chigvintsev talked with Access Hollywood about coming on as new pros for Dancing With The Stars Season 19. Well, and you know what happens at the end I think. Too fun! ADDING: if you can’t see the video, try this link.
Just a quick update!! Ballroom With A Twist may be over for it’s summer run, but, it’s new schedule for Fall, Winter, and Spring is starting to fill up nicely. Be sure to see THIS LINK for some new additions to our schedule. The schedule includes ticket information, etc. Some shows are selling tickets now and some are starting soon, so be ready if you want to get a good seat. It’s a lively, entertaining night of fun….especially if you are a general fan of dancing and singing.
What do you think of these dresses? Last night, Cheryl Burke attended Entertainment Weekly’s Pre Emmy Party at the Fig & Olive Melrose Place in West Hollywood, California. Karina Smirnoff attended the Variety And Women In Film Annual Pre-Emmy Celebration at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood, California. Perfection in every way! Be sure to click on both Getty Image links above to see more.
Awww, isn’t it fun to see our beautiful Karina Smirnoff again? The dancing pro attended the HBO Luxury Lounge featuring PANDORA at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, California today. To view more pictures, see Getty Images. Jim is going to be happy!
Isn’t the tweet below by Witney Carson a fun one? Woo Hoo! Pro rehearsals started TODAY for Dancing With The Stars. Derek Hough also mentions it in a new interview at E News which you can watch at Pure Derek Hough at this link. He also talks on Julianne and her judging, Nashville, and more. Too fun. Bring on the new season.

ETA: And a new instagram teaser by ABC…
And he thinks it’s a great idea! Gee, what a shock. Not. :-)
Turns out, the pros – in particular, one who was so “wronged” by her – don’t seem all that worked up by Julianne getting hired. In fact, this particular pro thinks it’s great because she’s actually won the show and is a trained ballroom dancer, unlike two of the other judges on the panel. Hell, Mark wasn’t even sure if it was a full time job because, unlike some, he has a life. I can hear it now – “Oh, they’re like family so of course he’s not mad.” Ya can’t have it both way, folks – he was the recipient of one of Julianne’s supposedly controversial comments and he’s cool.
Perhaps some should take notes of a mature, realistic reaction…. Mark talks to Perez Hilton.
Also – listen to the whole video. Mark says he called the other day to figure out his schedule and the producers haven’t finished pairing celebs with pros yet. So, with the exception of those who might have gotten requested, they selected their professional dancers without them having a partner in mind. This seems very unusual.
