PureDWTS New Valerie Harper UP Movie To Premiere In January, Health Update

Hey, for those interested, a new Valerie Harper movie called “The Town That Came A-Courtin’” will be premiering on the UP channel at 7:00pm on January 19th, 2014. If you’d like to read about it, see IMDB.com. You can also see a poster at this link.

Also, after Thanksgiving, People posted an interview with Tristan MacManus and Valerie Harper that was filmed after the finale of Dancing With The Stars. She gave an update on her health. I loved when she said, “What’s to complain about?” Note too that she’s planning to celebrate the holidays with her family and she’s not planning to look back, but, only looking forward. Below is more. She’s so amazing and so inspirational.

As she looks forward to celebrating the holidays with her family – something that she wasn’t sure she’d live to see – Harper is savoring every day, telling PEOPLE, “I’m not looking back. I’m only looking forward.”

DWTS18 Rumor: Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi Practicing Moves For Dancing With The Stars Season 18?

Yesterday, The Shahs Of Sunset’s Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, posted the instagram below with a quote that said, “Practicing my moves with @cherylburke for Dancing With The Stars! I’m not quite sure what I’m doing here but it’s better than my twerking! #Shahs #GG #DWTS #GreatNight #GettingOurGrooveOn #Fart“.

Karina Smirnoff Shares Makeup Tips For What She’s Learned From Dancing With The Stars

The Powder Room at the NY Daily interviewed Karina Smirnoff about her makeup tips and she gave some great ones too to those interested. Karina also discusses how the makeup philosophy has changed on Dancing With The Stars….

PR: Any beauty blunders you wish you could forget?

KARINA: I think I must have been 8 or 9 years old, watching one of the girls two classes ahead of me do her bangs – and back in the day, they used to do bangs with lots of hairspray and you would take the curling iron and make this curve. I thought, ‘”That looks awesome!” So I put a cheap, really hot curling iron to my bangs … and they burnt off! It was old-school hairspray. Just burned them right off. It was very traumatic. I had a little halo around my forehead.

PR: What’s the makeup philosophy at the show?

KARINA: We used to be the queens of makeup, but now I think we’re trying to go for a more natural look. Which I totally support. I agree it’s show business, so we need a show look. But I would much prefer seeing us all in just everyday makeup. I think natural is prettier than excessive amounts of makeup.

PR: What are your go-to beauty products?

KARINA: Personally, I try to use less when I’m not on camera or dancing. The skin gets tired of makeup. I do like YSL foundation, and I love Stila – they have great foundation, I love their eye shadows and the lip glosses are awesome. I love Clé de Peau Beauté’s compact powder because it’s really pretty, and I love the way it feels and the coverage. And I always have mascara on me. I prefer Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill in Steel Black. It’s a rich black, and creates the longest lashes. People ask me if they’re real – I try not to give that secret away.

More at The Powder Room.
