I’m really looking forward to seeing these two dance together…
Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson were on The Real today. Alfonso talked about the Carlton dance and how he thinks if first prevented him from being on Dancing With The Stars. They also play a “Stuck In A Pickle” game. Cute interview!
Poor Karina! Let’s hope she’s going to heal up soon! From TMZ….
Sources close to the show tell us x-rays show she didn’t fracture anything, but just in case … producers are scrambling to find a replacement. Karina’s already been voted out, but she still performs in each show.

So sad I'm not able to perform tonight on the show. Got hurt yesterday rehearsing. Now, some TLC and I'll be back stronger then ever!
Janel parrish has written a new blog at People about her switch-up dance with partner Artem Chigvintsev. She writes that she’s “channeling her inner bad burlesque girl”….
I think we all miss our partners, but Artem and I get along really well. I’m having an amazing time. All we do is laugh when there are little bloopers. I actually posted an Instagram video last Thursday because all we did when I messed up was just laugh! Our partners, Val and Leah, are also dancing together as well, so we peek in on their rehearsals. We’re like, “Oh, you’re cheating on us! That’s great. Well, we’re going to go dance sexy together! How does that make you feel?”
We’re dancing burlesque this week! I saw the movie Burlesque a few years ago, and I always wanted to do that just because it’s super sexy. It’s a dance that makes a woman feel like a woman. Burlesque is probably the most similar to the jive that I did, but it’s very different from all the others. The other dances I did were a lot more graceful.
I think it’s going to be an amazing dance. There are some hard tricks where I get thrown in the air, and I’ve never done anything quite like that before, so it should be interesting. But it’s fun! I really enjoy it. It’s going to be a really, really fun dance, and I’m hoping to channel my inner bad burlesque girl!

Hey All! Be sure you catch “Wheel Of Fortune” tonight. Dancing With The Stars pros Sasha Farber, Witney Carson, Peta Murgatroyd, and Artem Chigvintsev are dancing on their show. Thanks to Sasha for the heads up.
How about these dresses? Last night, Karina Smirnoff and Peta Murgatroyd attended the 2014 Carousel Of Hope Ball Presented By Mercedes-Benz at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. I think they look stunning. To see more pictures, see Getty Images.
Yesterday, Dancing With The Stars Julianne Hough was pictured lighting The Empire State Building pink in honor of Plan International USA in New York City! So gorgeous! Click the photos below to see more coverage. The Daily Mail has some photos too.

ETA: Julianne talks about the importance of raising awareness for girls education in a new interview below. You can also see some new pics of her arriving back to LA at Celebs Diary.
Peta Murgatroyd and Jonathan Bennett are going to make such a good pairing for the switch up for Dancing With The Stars, but, I’ll miss her with Tommy too. Two more days and counting…
Michael Waltrip tells Sacbee.com that doing Dancing With The Stars has been a lot of hard work, but, the experience has been “amazing”. Below is more. He’s such a great guy. More at the link on his racing adventures this weekend.
Waltrip said he’ll arrive in Roseville on Friday night for a sponsors’ dinner; on Saturday morning, he and “Dancing with the Stars” partner Witney Carson will find a suitable dance space in Roseville to practice for Monday’s show.
“The producers of the show asked me if I’d be interested in competing and I said yes almost instantly,” Waltrip said. “Then I hung up and said, ‘Shoot, I don’t know how to dance.’ ”
Despite low scores each week, Waltrip has advanced through four eliminations. He said this week’s theme is disco, so the boogie shoes will be put to good use.
“This whole dancing thing has been way out in left field for me,” Waltrip said. “But the experience has been amazing. It’s a lot of hard work to get the routines down. It’s been crazy, and I can’t believe how much better I’ve gotten, and that’s because of my great partners.”
Waltrip has dedicated himself to the dancing competition much as he did when he was a driver and now as a car owner for Clint Bowyer and Brian Vickers. Bowyer is 18th in the Sprint Cup standings and Vickers is 22nd. Waltrip, who has driven three Sprint Cup races this season, is 45th.
Wow, everyone is getting a tiny bit hosed this week in terms of either song or style – in some cases both. Except for Janel of course. The pimpage increases – do wish they’d quit trying so hard to make her happen and just let the show evolve more organically. All you screamin’ Val fans whining and crying about Derek asking Colbie to sing while he and Beth danced can STFU now. Not only did she get a dance very close to what she’s trained in, she got the artist singing for her this week (rumor, anyway) – and that artist is also guest judge! Much more preferential treatment than Derek going to a friend and asking her to sing. I expect that the hypocritical among you won’t be satisfied, regardless. Too bad, so sad.
Actually, giving Lea “Broadway” is pretty obnoxious too, considering that she just had contemporary – but I think she could use two good weeks in a row. She’s not getting the pimpage that Janel is. I like her a lot and think she has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, doing Broadway doesn’t really give Val the opportunity to fix her posture problems that she’s had in ballroom/latin numbers.
Rumor going around that Joey Fatone is singing Jonathan and Peta’s song – for reals? Too much weirdness for me this week.
ETA: Mike and Antonio…the latter is totally screwed, I’m thinking. What a craptastic song.
ETA2: So, they won’t show Tommy’s “salute” on camera, but will give him songs which heavily imply the same? :::rolls eyes:::
