Our Deepest Condolences To Derek And Julianne Hough And Their Entire Family!!

Our hearts are heavy this morning. Derek and Julianne Hough and their family have lost a patriarch in the family. Our deepest condolences, love, and prayers go out to the entire Hough family. RIP Mr. Hough!!xxxxx

Beautiful tributes from Julianne and Derek….

Heaven received another angel today. Many years ago this man purchased a little place on a lake that has now become one of the most special places for my family. The memories created there and that will continue to be created all started from this beautiful man taking a leap of faith. It brought our families together, and reminds us what is truly important. Family. His beliefs and constant faith was inspiring. I'll never forget playing basketball with him, teaching me the hook shot. Or finding my baseball in the rain gutter 10 years after I lost it. Taught me how to play ping pong and only a couple of months ago still could beat me. Introducing me to the Everly Brothers. Every one new "Bubble head Bob" in town. He was greatly admired and respected. Not just for what he did for the community but for the person he was. He has built a beautiful legacy that will live on forever and I am beyond grateful and proud to be his grandson. #family #granpahough #legacy

There was never any doubt how much you loved your family grandpa! You exuded love and light!! You taught me how to fish off the dock, you flipped me over your knees, you were there driving the boat when I learned how to ski, you let me beat you-sometimes- at ping pong, but my favorite was when we danced! Your soft wrinkled skin when you kissed and hugged me is the warmest and safest place I know. I know grandma nearly killed you when you took a leap of faith and bought the lake place back in the day even when you probably couldn't afford it, but you created a legacy for generations of your family and forever changed all of our lives! The foundation of our family is you. Your spirit, your love, your compassion, your talent, your kindness, your dance moves, your charm, your stubbornness, and again your love is all so undeniable! I miss you already, but the memories are beyond anything I could've dreamed to have! You are a wonderful man grandpa and I love you to the moon and back! I'll see you again papa! #familiesareforever

Filling The Gaps Without Derek And Julianne Hough, Kim Fields To Dance On DWTS

Entertainment Tonight did a report on how Dancing With The Stars will fill in the gap without Derek and Julianne this season (do what you will, but, nothing will ever fill that gap imo. Please try and get them to do some pro numbers or Macy’s Stars of Dances atleast!). They also mention what’s next for Julianne and Derek. They also talk on some of the contestants and Len Goodman coming back. Check out the mention on Kim Fields and how she’s dancing too!

Another plan from the network is to add classic sitcom stars like The Facts of Life’s Kim Fields and Full House star Jodie Sweetin.

Good Morning America’s Ginger Zee To Dance On Dancing With The Stars (More Info)

Is there anyone who doesn’t love Good Morning America’s weather girl Ginger Zee? She’s so cute. You can read her bio at wiki. I didn’t realize her full name is “Ginger Renee Zuidgeest”. Also, she was named for “Ginger” from Gilligan’s Island by her Dutch father, due to his love of the show that helped him learn English. She’s going to be fun to watch dance on Dancing With The Stars. Also, below is a fun blast from the past when she danced with Derek Hough for GMA’s Oscar show in March 2014. For more information on her partner Val Chmerkovskiy and all the latest couples spoilers, see this post.

Derek Hough, Brittany Cherry, Hayley Erbert and Jason Glover Perform “Singin’ in the Rain” – HI Res Video

This is some kind of awesome video!! Well done, Derek and company. Kinda funny – with the head mic on you can hear Derek breathing…but you can also hear a couple of his little dancing noises as he’s trying to restrain them. I imagine he’ll loose that altogether with more practice. He didn’t have a problem in New York Spring Spectacular.

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. :-)
