“There is not nor have there ever been any negotiations on this matter,” Jenner’s publicist told ET. “They inquired if she was interested in participating in the show and I said no thank you. That is the extent of the communication.”
Hope everyone has been enjoying their summer Thought I’d share this little ditty that fell into my lap entirely by accident yesterday, as I was making my morning cup o’ coffee in my office break room while half-listening to the janky tv in there that constantly cuts out and only seems to get random channels…
…Cheryl appeared on The Boris & Nicole Show yesterday, which premiered on Monday and is having a 4-week trial run on FOX. She chatted about her activewear line, her stint on I Can Do That, her backing out of judging Miss USA, and memories from DWTS. Full episode is below, and Cheryl’s segment starts around the 22:00 mark. What I found most interesting, though, was the revelation she dropped about her season 18 partner – turns out Drew Carey was a replacement for someone else:
“Let me tell you guys about Boris over here. He was supposed to be my partner, then he backed out – or chickened out – then, guess who my partner was. And I love him – DREW CAREY! Drew Carey is great, but I think [Boris] and I might have lasted a little longer!”
So yeah, Cheryl’s original season 18 partner was supposed to be Soul Food actor Boris Kodjoe, and Drew only entered the equation after Boris backed out. I loved Drew & Cheryl together, but I can’t help but be curious about how a Boris & Cheryl partnership might have turned out. Or who knows – maybe Boris might still be available for a future season! The little bit of hip action he showed in the segment that followed was decent enough. What do you guys think?
Boston Marathon Survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis Dances With Derek Hough, Moves “MOVE” Audience To Tears
Last night during the Move Live On Tour, Derek Hough danced with Boston Marathon survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis. Like Amy Purdy, what a huge inspiration she is. She’s come a long long way to get to this place in her life. What a beautiful, unforgettable, heaven-made moment. Thanks to Mishti for the video below. Pic above courtesy of Laura Morris. For lots more on the night including comments from Adrianne, fan reviews, photos, and videos, see Pure Derek Hough.
Dancing With The Stars Derek Hough is pictured in the new August issue of W Magazine in their “Ones to Watch” feature. If you go to this link, you can see a new photo of him wearing a Dsquared2 shirt and pants. He also talks of doing reality TV in the beginning.
“If you try to be cool, if you worry about being embarrassed, you’re doing it for the wrong reasons,” Hough says. “You’ve gotta embrace it—and sometimes that means going for a ridiculous song.”
Also, just a heads: Remember dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis who lost part of her leg in the Boston Bombing? She tweeted last night that she will be having a dance lesson with Derek and Julianne before the “Move Live On Tour” Boston show tonight. Stay tuned to Pure Derek Hough if this happens.
Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke And Karina Smirnoff graced the red carpet at the Spychatter App Launch Party last week. For more photos, click the pictures. What I’d give to see these two back on Dancing With The Stars.
Dancing With The Stars Melissa Rycroft, Witney Carson, Artem Chigvintsey, Keo Motsepe, Emma Slater, Alan Bersten, Brittany Cherry, Sasha Farber, and Jenna Johnson hung out together at the Azure Luxury Pool at The Palazzo Las Vegas over the weekend. You can see some fun photos of them all at Just Jared Jr. Instagram photos below courtesy of Emma Slater and Sasha Farber.
Pro dancer Allison Holker was a guest on KTLA this morning. She talks of what it’s like to be married to tWitch, his new movie “Magic Mike XXL”, Riker Lynch and doing a new music video with him, Dancing With The Stars, and lots more. Thanks to @DWTSgossip for the heads up.
If you head to the Las Vegas Sun, you can read a review of the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. You can also view a new gallery of photos. Below is a take from the link…
In the touring show, there was a routine to hip-hop music and one to country, where the outfits were eye-catching: jeans and cowboys hats for the shirtless men; Daisy Duke shorts and bikini tops for the ladies.
The precision of the dance movement was most impressive. When watching at home Monday nights, you don’t see the step-by-step movement of the dancers, nor do you truly appreciate their greatness and the amount of physical and mental preparation.
That dancing savvy is noticeable with each routine during the touring show, with performers such as Witney Carson and Murgatroyd so elegant with each step and sincere in giving fans a great evening of entertainment.
The show is more than dancing. Rycroft, the Dallas native and Season 15 champion, is witty and personable as the host. The dancers also interact with the fans — everything from Emma Slater taking a photo with the crowd and posting on her Twitter (@EmmaSlaterDance) to the men of the show walking down into the audience to distribute roses.
“We’ve been more excited about this stop than any other,” Rycroft said.
