Good Day, All! This past Thursday night, Derek Hough attended the Television Academy’s 70th Anniversary Gala. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, he talked of hopefully returning to Dancing With The Stars which you can watch below (oh, how I hope this happens in some form as the show is just not the same without him). To view lots more coverage of this event with Derek including red carpet footage, photos, talk of “Hairspray”, new dance projects in the works, and more, see Pure Derek Hough.
In a new interview that took place Friday night with Broadway World, Ricki discloses details about her upcoming projects, passions, and being a huge Broadway fan. In fact, Ricki would love to do Broadway someday and hopes her dancing on Dancing With The Stars will help her get a role.
RL: Oh, yeah. I am hoping to do Broadway someday. I mean – really. I am not a dancer – clearly, I am not a dancer – but, I am working really hard to make it look like I am. I am singer, though. So, if this leads to some opportunity onstage, I would love it.
Ricki also discusses the good times and the challenges of doing Dancing With The Stars. She also gives us a hint of what to expect of her and Derek’s dance tonight which includes tap dancing (you would not believe the happy dance twirl I just did after reading this and I about broke my neck! lol 🙂 )….
PC: How have you been enjoying your time on DANCING up until now?
RL: Well, I have to tell you: we just had this halfway point party and at the party people were just maniacs – they were throwing down on the dance floor!
PC: Well, given it’s a DANCING WITH THE STARS party, I’d expect no less.
RL: It was crazy! I mean, it was a bar, but people were cutting loose. It was really the crew that was doing it – there were the dancers, too – but the crew went crazy! I didn’t stay for too long because I had to dance the next day.
PC: How have you been handling all the responsibility and pressure inherent in the experience of doing this show?
RL: Oh, like, right now, I am racing home to get ready for the Chaz Bono event tonight. He is being honored and we are going. I am a lunatic – but, I am having a great time, at the same time, you know? [Laughs.]
PC: You must be stressed out.
RL: Yeah, it’s a lot – and, I have Derek beating me up. This week, in this dance, I am doing the quickstep and I am doing a little tap-dancing in it, too. It’s just exhausting. It takes so much out of me. Just doing it once, I am just sweating buckets.

Today, Ricki posted a new video on her Facebook of her teaching Derek some dance moves from the movie “Hairspray”. They are living up to their new team name “D-Rickilous” nicely, aren’t they? lol Too cute! Be sure to comment at her Facebook if you can and hopefully, they will make and post more!
