Below she tells us all about it and what it was like to meet Kym. Note how Robert Herjavec was there as well. Cathy even mentioned our review and PureDWTS.com to Kym.

Guest Blog On Kym Johnson’s Ridgewood, NJ Book Signing And Photos
On 1/19/16 I had the awesome opportunity to meet Kym Johnson at her book signing at the Bookends Bookstore in Ridgewood, NJ, with an added bonus of Robert Herjavec making a special guest appearance. Once I purchased her book “The 5 6 7 8 Diet,” we were all directed to go downstairs, where seats were set up for Kym to first give a talk about her book before she would actually begin her book signing. This was a very different set up from when I was there for both Derek Hough and Amy Purdy’s book signings. Within a few minutes, the press…Bergen.com…arrived and took pictures of some fans in the audience before ultimately taking many photos of our guest speaker! Then Kym made her grand entrance, and she was absolutely stunning!! She began to talk about herself…her background, DWTS both here and in Australia, her role as a pro and as a judge, her book and the meaning of 5 6 7 8 in the title, and lots of other interesting facts. Her story was extremely fascinating, and she captured and held our attention for the full 30 minutes she spoke. And her Australian accent…I love it!! Immediately following her talk, there was a Q&A session, which gave us further insight into her life. It was truly wonderful to get to know her. Right after she answered a few questions, it was time for us to meet Kym individually and have her sign and personalize our books. What a real pleasure it was to meet her personally and talk with her! She is such a sweetheart…most gracious and personable. During our conversation I told her that I read a fantastic review of her book by Vogue on PureDWTS, and she acknowledged that she had already seen it and said she was going to thank Vogue! What a real popular website!! I then told her that this was the bookstore where I had met both Derek and Amy for their book signings. A real popular place! Then as I turned around, about to walk away, I could see another line starting to form…this one was to meet a special guest, Robert Herjavec! He had been there throughout Kym’s talk, but remained out of the spotlight…until then! It was great meeting and talking with Robert for a few moments, and he most willingly signed everyone’s books as well. Overall, it was truly a wonderful evening meeting both Kym and Robert and seeing the beautiful relationship between them. I am thoroughly enjoying Kym’s book and am looking forward to seeing her perform on DWTS again!
