Janel Parrish Writes Of Her Fox Trot Tonight For DWTS And More

Janel Parrish has written a new blog at People. She talks of last week’s performance and experience on Dancing With The Stars. She also preps us on her and Val’s new dance for tonight.

This week we’re doing the foxtrot. The dance itself is beautiful and we kind of made it a fun, young foxtrot. We made it very modern, so it’s going to be really cute.

I think the foxtrot is actually harder than the jive, because when we learned the jive we had three weeks to prepare, and now we have four days. I’m trying to learn the choreography as well as learning how to do the foxtrot, and I think that’s been the most difficult part for me. I have to be very put-together, very glamorous, very mature and elegant, so it’s completely different from last week’s jive.

The song this week is a very modern song, but we’re taking it back to masquerade times. When you hear the song, it kind of has a feel of a masquerade ball, so we’re bringing a bit of older glam to a fun, young, contemporary song. I think the mixture of the two is really beautiful!

More at People.

Dancing with the Stars 19, Week 1 – The Cheesecake Awards!!

Well, lookie here…for one week, at least, Courtney and I are in a “mood”. Duck and cover, and sensitive readers beware – we spare almost no one, most of the time.

Why I want to do dancing with the stars: What the Women were REALLY Saying:
Janel: Cuz I’m Hawaiian and mama needs a showmance.
Sadie: They won’t let me dance in Louisiana and religious girls don’t suckā€¦at dancing.
Lolo: They let me dance but I sucked real bad. And that gave me a sad.
Lea: I danced great but ballet man said I was short and plain. Suck it, Misha.
Bethany: People were mean to me and now they can suck it.
Betsy: I can do the splits better then any of these young chicks; in my head I’m a Rockette.

Why I want to do dancing with the stars: What the Men were REALLY Saying:
Alfonso: Because there’s more glitter than on the biggest loser.
Tommy: The wife is more impressed by amazing dance moves than smoke clouds from the weed.
Tavis: I’m not serious! Blah blah blah gravitas blah blah blah gravitas blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah dammit. :::zzzzz:::
Antonio: I wanted to revive my career for years, and this is just the show to do it.
Jonathan: I miss my dad.
Randy: Fighters are people too. Agree with me or I kill you.
Michael: Bill Engvall got to dance with hot chicks. I can dance with hot chicks too. …Read more

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. :-)

Derek Hough And Bethany Mota To Take A Risk On Dancing With The Stars Week 2

In case you haven’t read it yet, Derek Hough has written a new blog for TV Guide. He writes of a “potentially dangerous” trick he’s using in he and Bethany Mot’s new dance. Here is more….

We have the foxtrot this week. It’s almost there. We have something fun planned that I’ve had in my mind for a while and now felt like the right time to do it. It involves using an instrument and we’re going to have some cool effects on it. It’s potentially dangerous, but it’s cool when it’s executed properly. I don’t normally take these kinds of risks in Week 2, but I figured why not? Try something new.

Be sure to read more of Derek’s blog at TV Guide. To read even more fun updates on Derek and Bethany, see Pure Derek Hough. And isn’t the instagram below breathtaking? #AwwwwGoldenMoment

PureDWTS Exclusive Interview: Gleb Savchenko Talks On His Return To Dancing With The Stars Season 19

Many times the producers have this special way of creating magical, golden moments on Dancing With The Stars. I thought last week’s Dancing With The Stars Season 19 premiere was one of best premieres…. especially with the return of pro dancer Gleb Savchenko dancing in the opening number and through out the show. What a special surprise (thank you Rob Wade!)!! In light of Gleb returning to dance, several of you have been asking if Gleb will be dancing again on the show. We were curious too, so, we wrote to him and asked him. We also asked him if he’d tell us on his experience last week. Read on for more and how he teases us with the first question. Gleb, thank you so much for your time!!!xxx

How are you? Good to hear from you and thanks for reaching out.

I very much enjoyed performing on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars last week – I’m so glad you liked it too!

Being asked to dance in the opening number of this season was such an honor and I had a blast working with the whole DWTS cast and crew again. I really appreciate all the fan support – I wouldn’t be here without you guys!
