Erin Andrews Writes Her Style Blog For DWTS Season 22 Week 2, Photos Behind The Scenes

Didn’t Erin Andrews look cute last night on Dancing With The Stars? And to think….at first she wasn’t sure about the dress she wore. More below from People.

Even though she was game to participate in the theme, Andrews had reservations about her Jonathan Simkhai dress. “I thought it would be a great dress for the ballroom but I was really worried it wasn’t ‘fancy’ enough,” she shares with PeopleStyle in her weekly blog. “But once Alyssa [Green, her stylist] paired it with the jewelry, shoes, hair and makeup, this look was fantastic. Perfect for Latin night. It was beautiful yet spicy.”

What made it so ideal was all in the sultry details: “The small cutout right above [the waist] gave it a sexy feel and I loved the slit; it was high enough to feel edgy, but I didn’t feel uncomfortable walking around in.”

Stylist Alyssa Greene “edged up” the look with an architectural Dior pump and swirling diamond Sylvie Collection jewels. “Erin looked like she could have been out there twirling alongside the best of them,” Greene says.

Erin Andrews Awarded $55 Million In Lawsuit, Thanks Everyone For Their Support

Thank goodness for Erin Andrews. A jury today awarded her with $55 million in a civil lawsuit over a secret recording and release of a video showing her naked during a hotel stay. You can read more from ABC below. Also below is a statement by Erin thanking the court, friends, family, and victims around the world for their help and support.

The jury has awarded Erin Andrews $55 million in her civil lawsuit over the secret recording and release of a video showing her naked during a hotel stay.

The sportscaster’s original suit asked for $75 million from the owner and operator of the Nashville, Tennessee, hotel where she was staying, and Michael David Barrett, the stalker who used a hacksaw to tamper with her room’s peephole and record the video in 2008.

The jurors took photos with Andrews after the amount was announced, and she signed autographs, according to reports from inside the courtroom.

The jury found Barrett to be 51 percent at fault and required him to pay out more than $28 million. West End Hotel Partners, which owns and operates that Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University, was found to be 49 percent at fault and asked to pay out more than $26 million.

Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews Predicts The Super Bowl Winner

Dancing With The Stars Erin Andrews picked who she thinks will win the Super Bowl tomorrow. Below is more from People.

If anyone can do it, it might be the Denver Broncos, says Andrews, who in a partnership with Levi’s, recently announced the brand will be expanding its NFL Collection this fall to include gear for all 32 teams.

“Their defense is unbelievable, obviously, and everything they were able to do over the season,” she says. “And you know Peyton (Manning, quarterback for the Broncos) is Peyton for a reason. So I’m just excited to watch the game. I hope it’s a close one and I hope it lives up to all the expectations.”

So who does Andrews expect to win?

“For my long-winded answer,” she tells PEOPLE, “I may say Carolina.”

More at People.

So who do you pick to win the Super Bowl? Go Broncos for me!

DWTS21 Semi-Finals Fashion Post! Along with a couple more goodies

I still haven’t been able to see the whole semi-finals episode, I had a child related commitment, and missed most of the first hour. It’s okay, I thought, I have the DVR set to record every episode, I’ll just watch the next day! Except…. Kids had been hitting that record button to record things they will never get around to going back and watching, and there wasn’t enough space, so NONE of it recorded! They “got” to sit down after school and delete everything they’ve recorded on the DVR that they aren’t going to go back and watch, because there was NO WAY I was willing to not have next week recorded.  My satellite provider isn’t one of the chosen ones that will allow me to watch the show on the abc website the next day, so I don’t really want to comment much on the show itself, until after the finals when they finally release it so EVERYONE can watch. *sigh* Unless someone has a solution so that I can watch what I missed?

So, on to FASHION!

Erin’s blog is up over at People. I do like the white dress, and it did look good on her, but considering how much she moves around from one end of the ballroom to another, and up and down stairs, it MAY not have been the best choice, in my opinion.

Carrie Ann’s blog is up over at Parade, and you can find the discussion over here. I really liked her look this week! It was a good look for her.

Julianne’s blog is up over at  InStyle. She looked really great this week, but anytime she wears her hair so straight and sleek, I always miss the texture that she normally has. And personally, I prefer less make up, but she did look stunning, even if it may not be one of my top choices.

Who was your best dressed this week? Read more..

How about some happy mindless fluff now? It’s this week’s DWTS FASHION POST!

I debated with myself about whether or not we should just skip this post this week, after everything that has happened. Obviously, I figured out that everyone here may need some happy mindless fluff right now. And I know that our sweet Vogue is hurting right now, and she loves the fashion posts. Vogue, I’m sorry to hear about your dad. If you need us, we’re here for you.

I’m sorry that Alexa and Mark were eliminated, she’s a very sweet woman, and she’s become a great dancer, and Mark has been instrumental in helping her grow in her self confidence and self worth. I don’t know how I feel about her being allowed to come back in though, because I can imagine just what will happen in social media. *Note to self, STOP LOOKING AT SOCIAL MEDIA FOR A WHILE!

I’m sorry that Tamar is so ill, and I hope she is able to heal completely. I know how much she wanted to stay, but her health needs to be first, and I’m glad that she is doing what she needs to be healthy. I’m glad that she and Val have finally managed to bond and gel.

I’m sorry (for me) that this season has churned out as much drama as it has so far. I’ve watched the show long enough that I will stick by it until they kill it completely.

Short and sweet!

I urge you to go and read Carrie Ann’s weekly post over at Parade, I’m not bringing anything else here, because my happy, mindless fluffy post ended up not being so happy and mindless. She talks a LOT about all of it. What did you think of her dress this week? I’m on the fence.

Julianne’s back with her fashion blog over on Instyle. I must admit, I was very surprised that her dress color was a shade of green while watching the show, probably just the lighting. Seeing photos of it, I liked it much better. And it does seem to suit her.

And lastly, People has Erin’s fashion blog. She definitely looked great this week!

Which is your favorite? I think….. Erin’s hair and Julianne’s dress.

Where Have You Gone, Dancing with the Stars? Heidi Rants.

Well, I feel I have to get something off my chest.

I loved (yes, past tense) Dancing with the Stars. Unashamed and openly. But what the current producers have done to this show has made it unrecognizable. A mere shadow of its formerly great self.

It started small. I’m not even sure I can put my finger on WHERE it started. There were signs for years that DWTS was, at it’s core, a reality show – for sure, a reality show that is highly produced. But it was so subtle, so nuanced – there weren’t competing agendas that impacted the direction of the show, such as the tour.  It featured ballroom dancing by celebrities from all walks of life. It showed, very clearly, to the masses that professional dancers are elite athletes with highly conditioned bodies and sublime talent and creativity. It introduced us to the talents of people like Derek Hough, Mark Ballas, and Julianne Hough – the three who took a ballroom dancing show and pushed it to the next level. All the professional dancers upped their game and pushed themselves to be better, more creative, dancers. They all were responsible for bringing ballroom dancing to gorgeous, entertaining heights and into, at times, 15 to 20 million households (back in the day).  We met celebrities that were often B list at best – and grew to love them more than they had ever enjoyed before, in some cases. It redeemed many celebs, humanized them…and showed us journeys of growth and friendship and camaraderie. The celebrities that caused me to roll my eyes or guffaw with laughter when they were announced, often turned out to be some of my favorite contestants ever on the show. Sadie Robertson…Rob Kardashian…Tommy Chong…Kelly Osborne…Bill Engvall…Snookie…the list is really too long. 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. :-)
