PureDWTS Season 18 Week 7 Media And Interviews After Dance Night

Wow, what a night!! I’m still upset about how the judges reacted to Sharna and Charlie. So unfair. Sharna tweeted that she isn’t sure what Charlie has to do, but, they will keep fighting. That’s the spirit.

I’m worried on Amy Purdy too. The last she tweeted on her condition, she said she was ok, but, she was still waiting for the doctor’s report. She also tweeted that she’s looking forward to next week’s dance and that she and Derek will dance an Argentine Tango (if she’s good to go).

In media things after the show, George Pennacchio of ABC7 has a recap and some previews of his interviews. Note how Sharna said she and Charlie have a Quickstep just like we previously posted last night. You can learn of more of our other dance spoilers here.

Also, On The Red Carpet has some awesome photos from the night. Pure Derek Hough has some screen caps of Amy and Derek and the Team dance too and more will be posted a little later.

And just to review the scores again in case you need them….

Amy Purdy and Derek Hough: 36
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd: 35
Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy: 33
NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani: 31 (Eliminated)
Charlie White and Sharna Burgess: 36
Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas: 35
Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 39

One more thing, did you happen to see Gleb Savchenco and Elena Samodanova in the audience? She indeed wore a dress from her new line as promised. Below are some instagrams of them both. Beautiful!!

Ok, that is all for now. More later. Keep checking back!! ;) xx

Gleb Savchenko Interviewed About Brooke Burke Charvet, Erin Andrews, And More DWTS Things

Your Tango recently interviewed pro Gleb Savchenko Kathy Duliakas’ Celebrity Oscar Suite. He answer a few questions about Brooke Burke Charvet, Erin Andrews, and if celebs know what are getting into when they do Dancing With The Stars. Below is a take. Be sure to read more at the link where he also talks a little of his wife Elena Samodanova and fatherhood.

YourTango: We’re you shocked to hear about Brooke Burke-Charvet getting fired?
Gleb Savchenko: I was shocked. I was like, ‘No way!’

YourTango: Do you know why she was let go?
Gleb Savchenko: They were saying the show needed a change. The band was changed, too. Honestly, I love Brooke. You couldn’t wish for a better host. She was so classy, so beautiful, so kind. She was made for the ballroom.

YourTango: What do you think of new co-host Erin Andrews?
Gleb Savchenko: I don’t really know her. I’ve never met her, but she seems nice. She seems tougher than Brooke.

YourTango: Do the celebrities understand what they’re getting into?
Gleb Savchenko: No. If they knew, they would never do it! It’s really hard — hours and hours a day. They think they’re going to have a lot of fun, hang out in the studio, dance with a pretty boy, but no, it’s a lot of hard work.

DWTS Gleb Savchenko, Maks and Val Chmerkovksiy Attend OK! Magazine Pre-Oscar Party

Last night, several of our pros from Dancing With The Stars attended OK! Magazine’s Pre-Oscar Event! From what we can gather so far, Gleb Savchenko was there along with his former Dancing With The Stars partner Lisa Vanderpump. Maks and Val Chmerkovksiy were also in attendance. You can view some new photos of Maks and Val at Getty Images. Photo below is courtesy of Gleb’s instagram. Adorable and it’s so good to see Lisa and Gleb together again. I’m also glad to see Gleb is still in LA being his wife Elena flew back to Australia yesterday. Can I entertain the thought that he might still be a part of Dancing With The Stars Season 18? *sigh and still hoping* All I know is I will always be a fan and nothing is final until Tuesday.

ETA: Gleb will be teaching a master class at LA Ballroom Studio on April 11th. If interested in attending, see LA Ballroom Facebook. They also have some new pictures of he and Elena dancing this week at their studio at this link.

DWTS Gleb Savchenko And Wife Elena Samodanova To Choreograph For So You Think You Can Dance

The Herald Sun is reporting that Dancing With The Stars Gleb Savchenko and his wife Elena Samodanova will be choreographing for the new reboot of “So You Think You Can Dance” in Australia. Below are a couple of takes from the link. Does this mean he won’t be back for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars (Oh man, if so, this is so making me cry as he is one of my very fave male pros along with Derek and Henry! :( :( )? Stay tuned. We’re going to contact him and see if he can let us know something.

ELENA AND GLEB

Both appeared in the 2011 series of Dancing With The Stars Australia and regulars on the US version (last year he partnered with Real Housewives star Lisa Vanderpump). Married with daughter Olivia.

Dance means “seeing stories come to life from inside the body. With the two of us, it’s not just the power of one, it’s the power of two.”

Russian-born ballroom stars Gleb Savchenko and his wife Elena Samadanova leaped at the chance to return to Australia, after appearing in the 2011 season of Seven’s Dancing With The Stars.

Savchenko, who recently partnered Real Housewives favourite Lisa Vanderpump, hopes the popularity of Channel 10’s reboot of the show continues to grow “so people see the best of what these (local) dancers can do.”

“It’s such a great team…with Jason Gilkison…and of course Paula Abdul. this is the best you can ask for.”

ETA: We’ve heard back from Gleb!! Below is what he’s written back to us…

Me and Elena are both really excited to be Ballroom-Latin choreographers for SYTYCD here in Australia. It’s gonna be an amazing season!!!

We’ve been dancing together for more than 8 years and it’s such a pleasure for me to work and create something together with Elena again. It’s an amazing team works on SYTYCD Jason Gilkinson, Paula Abdul, Aaron Cash and Shannon Holtzapffel and we are so proud to be amongst them.

At the moment I’m focused on my work here, but if DWTS will ask me to be back for the coming season, for sure I’ll be back.

Let’s hope Dancing With The Stars will ask him back. They’d be crazy if they didn’t. In the meantime, I’m so happy he is able to work with beautiful Elena again and that they’ve landed such amazing roles on “So You Think You Can Dance” in Australia. ((((GLEB & ELENA))))xxx
