A Health And Wedding Update On Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews

In an update from Extra, Erin Andrews says she’s doing great after her cancer scare last Fall. Erin also gave an update on her wedding to Jarret Stoll. Here is more….

Ready to help plan the bachelorette festivities, Charissa revealed Erin isn’t going to do the whole “veil thing” at the wedding. Erin agreed, “I don’t do that.” She went on to dish, “You know my man is the bridezilla! He is Pinteresting. I’m in Dallas Cowboy meetings, and he’s sending me, ‘Hey babe, I saw this on Pinterest,’ and I’m like, ‘Hey babe, will you let me get through Super Bowl?’” She added that they are not having a black tie wedding. “Jarrett isn’t even wearing a tie!”

The 38-year-old recently revealed she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in September, and all traces of the disease were successfully removed in two surgeries. During that time, she never missed a beat during football season.

Andrews updated reporters on how she was feeling. “I’m doing well, I’m doing great. This week is crazy for us, we are also hosting the game!” She said she feels wonderful after beating the disease. “I went for a workout today.”

She’s so cute and thank goodness she’s ok. To read the full update, see Extra.

Laurie Hernandez “I Got This: To Gold and Beyond” -Book Review, Book Signing Guest Blog By Cathy

Cathy, one of our readers and guest bloggers to our Pure sites, went to Laurie Hernandez’s book signing in Ridgewood, NJ on January 22, 2017. She writes of her fun experience and about the book itself “I Got This: To Gold and Beyond” and how there are some similar parallels to the “Move Beyond: “Live On Tour” and Derek Hough. She also mentions how the book has some Dancing With The Stars mentions. Read on for lots more. If interested, you can purchase “I Got This: To Gold and Beyond” at Amazon. To purchase tickets to “Move Beyond: “Live On Tour”, go here. THANKS, Cathy!

“I Got This: To Gold and Beyond and MOVE BEYOND: Live on Tour…Laurie Hernández and Derek Hough both look, reach, and dream BEYOND!”
Laurie Hernández booksigning
Bookends ~ Ridgewood, NJ

Guest blog by Cathy

As soon as I received an email from Bookends Bookstore announcing that Laurie Hernández would be appearing there to do a booksigning for her new book on January 22, I knew I wanted to go and meet her! Olympic gold and silver medalist at the 2016 Rio Olympics and DWTS S23 champion coming right to my backyard…what an awesome opportunity! Then when I saw the title of her new book, I Got This: To Gold and Beyond, I could see the common theme of *beyond* with both Laurie and Derek…To Gold and Beyond and MOVE BEYOND: Live on Tour! I was fascinated by this thought, so I was planning on mentioning this common thread to her when we spoke.

Bookends is an extremely popular bookstore where many celebrities hold booksignings. In fact, Derek had his first booksigning there back in August 2014, followed by Amy Purdy in ’15, and then Kym Johnson (along with Robert Herjavec!) in ’16. So attending this event with Laurie brought back many fond memories of Derek, Amy, and Kym being there, plus once you enter the store, there’s a constant reminder of all past authors who have had booksignings there with their names posted on the wall, categorized by year. What a super idea!

Laurie’s booksigning was scheduled to begin at 1pm and end…whenever!! I arrived at 10:30am, and as I waited inside the store, by 11am I was fortunate to see Laurie enter through the back door, accompanied by her parents, siblings, publicist, and crew. The line was starting to form outside in the parking lot, so after 11am I decided to join the line and wait outside. One of the staff periodically talked with us and kept us up to date regarding her schedule. He informed us that indeed Laurie had arrived and was upstairs signing the books…all 1,700 of them (!!)…for the awaiting crowd! Due to the massive crowd, in order to accommodate her taking photos with everyone, she was presigning the books so that we could just pick them up after meeting her. Made total sense!

It was a very friendly, gymnastics-oriented crowd…lots of young gymnasts sporting their team jackets. And considering the size of crowd, everything ran very smoothly, and it was all very well organized. Just before 1pm, the media started to arrive, and the line began to move. Each booksigning that I’ve attended at Bookends has been slightly different. Laurie’s booksigning was somewhat similar to Derek’s…with an enormous crowd of excited fans anxiously waiting outside!

Hugh Grant Thinks Dancing With The Stars Is “Superb”, But, Probably Wouldn’t Dance

In an older interview Hugh Grant said he’d love to do Dancing With The Stars as he thinks the show is “superb”, but, he probably wouldn’t. Instead he’d like to dance in an up coming movie “Wall On Drugs”. Could he change his mind? I doubt it, but, it’s fun to think about getting a big name like this.

Carrie Ann Inaba Interviewed On The New Season Of DWTS, Her Engagement To Robb Derringer, And More

AOL interviewed Carrie Ann Inaba about Dancing With The Stars and the new season approaching. She’d like to see Bruno Mars dance. She also talks of some behind the scenes secrets…

The “Dancing with the Stars” premiere date was just announced, so I have to ask, who’s the No. 1 star you’d love to see compete?

Oh, the No. 1 star I’d like to have? You know, I would love to have Bruno Mars. He’s just such a fantastic performer, full of life, and he’s from Hawaii — and there’s just such a cool vibe about him. I don’t know if we could ever get him, but I think he would be so much to fun to have on the show.

He would be good, don’t you think?

Yeah, he’s an amazing dancer! He, and I also think, Ne-Yo …

Ne-Yo’s great. We’ve had Ne-Yo perform on the show a couple times, he’s been wonderful. He’s such a nice guy. And we always get Pitbull, and he comes up and gets judges — he’s always such a joy, as well.

So fun! Do you have any behind-the-scenes secret to share? The show’s been on for so long, longtime viewers probably feel like they know everything about it — but is there anything you feel even the biggest fans don’t know?

I feel like maybe even the biggest fans don’t know that the judges are kept completely separate from the dancers. People always ask me, “what are the secrets?” and I don’t really have any, because the judges’ trailers are on the opposite side of the CBS lot. We’re on the opposite side, and we’re not allowed into the studio … ever. You know how we do the judges’ pick and we go in and choreograph? That’s the only time we’re ever allowed in the studio before the show starts.

Yeah, so people think we know all the secrets, but we know nothing! We’re totally separated. It’s hysterical. I guess we have Standards of Practices, so we have to.

Lots more at AOL including talk on her new partnership with P.F. Chang’s Home Menu and her engagement and wedding to actor Robb Derringer. Note how Carrie Ann will help co-host Live With Kelly next week. We’ll be sure to post anything she says on Dancing With The Stars.

Erin Andrews Kept A Cancer Diagnosis A Secret, Will Return For DWTS Season 24

Last Fall Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews was diagnosed with cervical cancer and she didn’t tell anyone. Thank goodness she is ok. She’s also returning for Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Below is more from Entertainment Weekly.

SI reports that Andrews missed two tapings of DWTS after learning of her diagnosis — but the official word was that she needed time off to support her boyfriend (now fiancé) Jarret Stoll, whose nephew had been killed in a car accident. “I don’t believe anyone knew what was going on,” said the associate.

Andrews, 38, underwent surgery Oct. 11 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Two days later, she boarded a plane to Green Bay, Wisconsin, to film a football feature. “Let’s just say the doctor didn’t recommend that,” Andrews told SI. “But just as I felt during my trial, sports were my escape. I needed to be with my crew.”

Andrews is expected to return as a co-host on DWTS when the show’s 24th season kicks off March 20.
