For those missing Karina Smirnoff, here’s a new interview with Access Hollywood. She talks about her dating disasters and gives dating advise in promotion with her new book, “We’re Just Not That Into You“! She also talks on Dancing With The Stars at the end. Be sure to watch Home And Family on Friday as she’s on that show too.
Suzanne Somers talked with Fox11 about why she decided to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Not only was it try and stay viable, but, to show she’s healthy and fine to dance in her 60’s (wow, I didn’t realize she is 68! She looks fantastic!). She plans to give it 100%! More below…
“I thought what a privilege to have this opportunity to have a viewing audience of 15 million people every week,” she said. “Part of my job is to make sure I stay in front of the public eye, to stay viable.”
“My strength is I like to win and I always try 100 percent. I never do anything half-ass.”
Somers, who has previously written a book about replacing lost hormones, said although she’s in her 60s, she should do absolutely fine physically on “DWTS.”
“I have no bone loss, no brain loss, I have a lot of energy and a lot of strength,” she said. “My heart is perfect so I think I’m more ready than I would have been in my 20s, honest to God.”
Somers, who has often talked about her sex life with her husband, confirmed to FOX411 that dancing should work more wonders.
“It’s gotta be great for all those special muscles!” she winked.

E News caught up with Riker Lynch and Allison Holker this morning after the new Dancing With The Stars Cast Announcement. Below Riker comments about following in Derek and Julianne’s footsteps and more….
“A little bit, it’s kind of like trying to walk in their footsteps,” he said of Derek and Julianne, who have both won DWTS several times. “I’m a little bit nervous because they’ve both been so good. But it’s going to be fun!”
And even though he, you know, is related to Derek, Riker, 23, said he had no idea his cousin was returning for season 20. I just found out that Derek was coming back to the show live, so that’s very exciting!”
Though he doesn’t have any formal dance training, Riker is relying on some of his family genes to help him back it far in the competition, telling us, “I think I have a little bit of the dance genes from the Houghs, for sure!”
More at E News including a video (that I can’t embed).
