It’s a Dancing With The Stars holiday and PureDWTS reader Lois puts it’s all into perspective with this fun ditty for the premiere tonight…
THE DANCING WITH THE STARS TRAIN!
All aboard! The train is leaving the station
Chug, chugging along to its final destination
The All Stars are in their Sunday finery best
Who of the thirteen will pass the final test
Along for the ride Bruno, Carrie Ann, and Len
When will they raise the paddle of the first ten
The ballroom is cheering, the train is inside
The shimmery, sparkly show opens with pride
Our eyes wide at precisely the hour of 8 o’clock
We get into the dancing mode, oh it will rock
Emmy winner Tom Bergeron says for all to hear
This is Dancing With The Stars, it is finally here
Brooke Burke takes her place with her co host
Congratulations Tom, well deserved, we boast
The All Stars ascend, to thunderous loud cheers
All thirteen trying to shake off nerves and fears
Their heels, dancing shoes, steps to the beat
Oh we are in for a dazzling, raz-ma-taz treat!
The train pulls out, in salute the whistles blow
It is Dancing With the Stars, its on with the show!

DANCING WITH THE STARS ALL STARS IS FINALLY HERE!
WITH GUSTO, WE STAND UP, WE GIVE A ROUSING CHEER!
Thanks Lois! Well said! And with that said, Dancettes, below is Pamela Anderson on The Ellen Show today prepping us even more for tonight. She says Tristan sweats in a heart shape. LOL So cute!
Also, below is a bite from Nightline where host Tom Beregeon talks about Pamela.
“DWTS” host Tom Bergeron told “Nightline” that he recently asked the former “Baywatch” babe about her celibacy vow, which she made last month.
“I guess she thought it would give her a competitive edge,” Bergeron said. “And so I happened to see her yesterday in the hall and I mentioned to her that I had been asked about her vow of celibacy and over her shoulder, with her back to me, she went, ‘I’m already off the wagon.’”
A few weeks before the “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” premiere, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, the 45-year-old Anderson told People magazine that she had “sworn off men until November,” when the competition ends.
Anderson was eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars,” Season 10, in May 2010 and returns tonight for the show’s 15th season, alongside Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, Bristol Palin and Emmitt Smith, among others.
“We’ve got everybody on the show who’s been here before, many of whom have won it before, I’m really excited about it,” Bergeron said. “I do think that each of them knows that this particular Mirror Ball trophy, however kitschy it might be, there’s a certain status among fans of the show for coming into a season of all stars and walking away with that one.”
NOTE: Tune into “Nightline” tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET as ABC’s David Wright sits down with Tom Bergeron and members of the cast to talk about the show behind the scenes. HERE is a preview you don’t want to miss.
Donald writes that he and Peta have “the waltz down pat” and they are gunning for three “10′s” tomorrow night on Dancing With The Stars. It’s been an exciting few days. Read why….
It’s been an exciting few days out here in LA. Yesterday Peta and I were guests on the “Ellen” show and today I feel like we really got the waltz down pat. Going on the Ellen DeGeneres show was really special for me because she’s a favorite of both my mom and my mother in law. They were so excited when they found out they were going to get to watch me on one of their favorite shows. Peta and I had a great time on the show — we had some laughs and even did one of our dance routines. I’m not going to tell you which one … you’ll have to watch the show when it airs on Monday to find out!
Monday is also our next DWTS performance. Like I said, I’m feeling really good about where we’re at with our waltz. Peta and I are going to spend lots of extra time fine-tuning all the little details because we want those triple 10s. Make sure you tune in and vote this week, Packer Nation.
You can read more at JS Online. Here is a little preview for what’s to come on The Ellen Show tomorrow. Be sure to tune in!
Stay tuned, we hope to have the whole interview of Ricki and Derek on The Ellen Show. For now, here are a few clips from The Ellen Show where Ricki reviews her weight accomplishments and how she plans to help kids in Malawi with all of her Dancing With The Stars money.
Adding: The full interview of the Ellen Show interview can be seen HERE.
This isn’t the full interview, but, you can see part of Hope and Maks’ interview with Ellen yesterday below. They talk of the pressure and learning to dance when you are a “tomboy at heart”. If someone knows where we can get the full interview, please let us know. Thanks!!
Adding: Here is the full interview! Thanks to @DWTSMaksimFans at twitter for sending!!!xxx
Ellen Degeneres chatted with Val and Elisabetta today on her show. They start the interview talking about Elisabetta’s shoulder injury and how nervous she is for Monday night since their scores weren’t that good the first week. Ellen asks if she’s pressured more to dance because of the George Clooney break up. Val lighten’s the moment by saying HE is feeling pressured instead. LOL Here’s a clip. Stay tuned as we hope to have more footage of this interview soon.
Tuesday night, Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, and Damian Whitewood attended the Samsung and Verizon Launch of The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in West Hollywood, California. The three looked hotter than ever and represented Dancing With The Stars in their stylish best as you can see. While there, E-Online was able to catch up with Karina to ask her why the show is trying to get more A-listers in “upping their game”. Below is how Karina commented.
But why the sudden snooty ‘tude from DWTS? When we caught up with Karina Smirnoff at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Launch at The Beverly, the dancing vet gave us her input on why the mystery A-listers need to up the show’s game:
“I think it’s great that we’re getting more A-list,” said Karina. “I think we can outdo America’s Got Talent and The Voice.”
I’m sorry, but, in my opinion, Dancing With The Stars shouldn’t try and copy anyone else. I like show just as it is. Plus, they are already at the top of their “A” game, aren’t they? Be sure to read the link in full because E-Online questions the show and their attidude a little and some of the people rumored to dance so far. They also dish who they think would make good “barely” A-Lister potentials. They list Lindsay Lohan, Ellen Degeneres, Demi Moore, Kellen Lutz, and Mariah Carey (no way will Mariah do Dancing With The Stars in my opinion. I think she’s going to be involved with the new US X Factor anyway?).
You can view more pictures of Karina, Peta, and Damian at the Samsung and Verizon Launch of The Samsung Galaxy Launch here and here.
Yesterday, Mark paid The Grove in Hollywood a little visit. He gave them an interview and sang. He talks of his three favorite dream partners for Dancing With The Stars again….Jennifer Aniston, Ellen Degeneres, and Pippa Middleton (this one always gets a lot of ewws and ahhs). He gives hints for his next single. He also promotes Pia Toscano and a possible collaboration (this is where it gets a little hard to stomach?). Anyway, Mark’s performance isn’t bad. I’ll give him that. Check it out!
Thanks to Vin for sending this link to us!!!
Also, for those who are fans to Mark musically, he will be performing at the 26th Annual Imagen Awards on August 12th at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. He will also be presenting an award.
Mark Ballas sat down for a fun new interview with Buzzworthy MTV. He talks about his album “HurtLovebox”, and what it’s all about in overcoming life’s obstacles. He mentions all of his favorite artists and how some of them have inspired him. He also mentions his love for making music, but, said he won’t ever let go of his love for dancing. Though if he had to pick one or the other, it would be MUSIC! All this and more below. But, what’s cool and different about this interview, are Mark’s suggestions about dancing the “House Basic” dance in clubs. Very fun. Check him out.
Below is Mark performing at Francis Church in Dracut, MA on July 8th. He answers a few questions before singing where he mentions dancing and his dream partners….Jennifer Aniston, Ellen Degeneres, and Pippa Middleton.
