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 suck…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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 19 Week 1 Poem: “Shaking 19 Seasons In The Ballroom”

It’s our resident poet, Lois!! She’s back putting week one all together with one of her fabulous poems….

SHAKING 19 SEASONS IN THE BALLROOM

19 Seasons shaking in the ballroom, spicy, peppery hot
The opening seasoned with a new feel, hitting the spot

Tom and Erin took their places as Hosts Extraordinaire
The judges became four, Julianne filled the fourth chair

The entire cast featured, with rousing spirit to Let’s Go
The time finally here for the magnificent ballroom show

The dancing pairs introduced to applause and cheers
Each season showcased many pairs through the years

The pairs shook off nerves, rising to their dancing feet
Their feet soon keeping the time to the dancing beat Read more..

Dancing With The Stars Pros Become Gladys Knight’s Pips At The Hollywood Bowl

Music legend and much loved Dancing With The Stars contestant, Gladys Knight, is performing at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend. Not only that, and watch out, Dancing With The Stars pros Tristan MacManus, Sasha Farber, Henry Byalikov, and Artem Chigvintsev are performing with her too. Below is some coverage from George Pennacchio and ABC7. Great interview and isn’t fun to see them all again?

ETA: The Examiner has an article posted on the show. Below is take about she and the pros they danced. Be sure to see the link for more. LOL to “it was on my bucket list”.

Gladys Knight proved why she is at legendary status in her 75 minute set. The seven-time GRAMMY Award winner has earned number one hits in Pop, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has also had a career in film, television. Knight showed why she is still in the business after all of these decades and her voice still incredible.

Knight kicked off her set opening the show sitting at the piano and performing “Hard To Say I’m Sorry”. She told the crowd “this is something you never seen me do”. She stated that she wanted to take piano lessons as a child but with there being four kids, her mom could not afford it so her sister Brenda got the piano lessons and she got to sing. She said it was on her “bucket list’ as she played the piano during the show. She then went on to perform “You Should Be Dancing” by The Bee Gees. Back up dancers come on stage to dance and it is Sasha Farber, Henry Byalikov and Artem Chigvintsev from “Dancing With The Stars”. Then comes Tristan MacManus who was Knight’s dancing partner when she competed on the hit television show to lead her into a dance routine. She joked afterwards saying “it was on my bucket list”.

Mary Murphy was at the show last night. She posted some fun shots. @JDSwartz posted some instagrams too…

And isn’t his a great shot?!
