DWTS Nancy Grace’s Dancing Special From Dance With Me Studios Part 2 (Full Video)

In case you missed Part 2 of Nancy Grace’s “Dancing Special” last night on her show, here it is in full special thanks to Grinya’s Entertainment.


Happy New Year's From 'Dance With Me' Studios -… by GrinyasEntertainment

What do you think? I thought Part 2 was better than Part 1. I loved how they spotlighted the little dancers! They were so good. I loved how they included the full cast of this past season in it in some way, not just the dancers present at Dance With Me Studios with Nancy! I also loved Val playing his violin (and the retrospective with Mark Ballas) and the kiss on Nancy’s cheek from Maks after they danced (they would have made a cool couple to watch last season like he and Kirstie). Great show!!

And again, if you missed Part 1, be sure to see it here.

Great shows!! I hope Nancy will continue to cover Dancing With The Stars in the future. I’d love to see more TV coverage of what goes on at Dance With Me Studio’s as well. Fascinating!!

Pure Dancing With The Stars – Just a Couple Of Reminders & A Future Note

Just a couple of reminders! Don’t forget to watch the Nancy Grace Show on the HLN network at 8:00pm ET for Part 2 of her “Dancing Special” tonight. If you missed Part 1, be sure to see it here. It was a gas and I’m betting tonight will be too! If nothing else, it’s great for those suffering from DWTS withdrawals. 8O Nancy tweeted that the show will have “Child dance phenoms” as well….


Tonight! Brand new dancing show w/ child dance phenoms!! http://t.co/5yBb6NHe

Also, Dancing With The Stars Champ J.R. Martinez is the Grand Marshal of the 123rd Tournament Of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA. If interested, you’ll be able to watch the parade go down LIVE on ABC and NBC at 11:00am ET on Monday, January 2nd. If you’d like to watch it commercial free and in 3D, you’ll be able to view it on the HGTV channel at the same time. In the meantime, TV Guide has a little interview with J.R. where he talks on the honor of doing it and why (his answer might shock you. lol). He also mentions Dancing With The Stars and his future plans in acting.

On a future note and if you live or would like to travel to New York, Mark Ballas is giving a one night concert at The Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington, NY on January 27th at 8:00pm. You can read more about the concert at Playbill as well as how you can obtain tickets.

Rob Kardashian Dishes On Dancing With The Stars & To Host New Years Eve Party

Rob Kardashian will be hosting his own New Year’s Eve Party in Las Vegas for those living in the area (John? :) ) at the Tyrst Night Club. Leading up to the event, the Las Vegas Sun interviewed him. Did you know Rob knew Cheryl before he danced on the show? He talks of it below as well as his journey for when the competitive side of himself started kicking in….

The Kats Report: In watching you dance on the show, it seems you got along particularly well with Cheryl Burke.
Rob Kardashian: Oh, yeah. I knew her from before. I had some friends who have done the show, so it wasn’t at all an awkward experience. It was really very comfortable, and, for me, that’s everything, to feel comfortable in what I’m doing in front of so many people. She’s a great girl.

TKR: Had you watched the show very much before you were asked to be on it?
RK: No. Never.

TKR: What were your expectations when you started considering taking part?
RK: I just really didn’t care (laughs), that was my whole thing, just to have fun with everything, and I did, because it is a show, and it’s a fun performance. But at the end of the day, it also is a competition. I started to take it seriously, but mostly I just wanted to have fun with everything.

TKR: At what point did your competitive nature kick in?
RK: I started to begin to realize that I actually can do this as the weeks moved forward, like maybe by Week 5 or Week 6, when I did my tango. That’s when I actually realized that I could actually do this, and that’s when the competitive nature kicked in … the tango is tough, but I really enjoyed it.

TKR: Were you genuinely disappointed not to have won the championship.
RK: I feel I went as far as I could have gone. I would have loved to have won, obviously, but J.R. definitely deserved it. I did the best I could do and ended with a perfect score, when coming into it I never would have imagined myself even making it to the finals.

Great interview! Lots more including his New Years Eve resolutions at the Las Vegas Sun.

DWTS Season 13 Champ JR Martinez Expecting First Child!!

Congratulations, JR and Diana Gonzalez-Jones!! I think he’s going to be a great father – his outlook on life is phenomenal. According to People.com:

J.R. Martinez tells PEOPLE exclusively that he and girlfriend Diana Gonzalez-Jones are expecting their first child next spring.

“We found out just last week it’s a girl and we are over the moon,” Martinez, 28, says. “Diana has a little baby bump now and it’s the cutest thing ever. With the holidays coming up, this is the biggest and best gift we could get.”

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. :-)

Dancing With The Stars “Season Retrospective” December 23rd On The Nancy Grace Show

Last night on the Nancy Grace Show, she mentioned that her December 23rd show will be an hour devoted to Dancing With The Stars and her time dancing with Tristan MacManus. If it’s like her shows in the recent past, she may have other stars of Dancing With The Stars as guests as well. So, mark your calendars. I really have to give it to Nancy. Along with Tristan, she’s went full out promoting Dancing With The Stars and it’s pros and celebrities. I hope she’ll keep doing this each season. She does a great job and she’s funny too! Nancy’s show airs weeknights at 8:00pm ET on the HLN channel.

Thanks to TristanDWTSFans at twitter and her facebook page for the heads up on this news!!

ADDING: According to Dancing With Me Studios and Pulse Creative NY at twitter, Nancy, dancers, and guests (see below which also includes a new picture of Maks and Tristan) are in New York City at Dance With Me Soho studios filming for this segment today. Watch these two accounts closely for updates!!

Dancing with the Stars LOLz – You Caption it!!

Now that the season is over, I thought it would be more fun if everyone had a chance to use their lolz skillz on some funny or interesting screen caps from the show.  I captioned the first two, but don’t let that stop you if you’ve got something better.  :-)  Lay it on us in the comments (make sure you tell us which pic the caption is for, just in case) and in a few days we’ll pick the best one – by “we” I mean me, John, Courtney and Vogue. :-)  If you can’t think of more than one, tell us all – no limit on captions.
