Last night, Derek and Julianne Hough attended the Casamigos Tequila Halloween party at a private residence in Los Angeles, California. You can view more photos of them at Getty Images and Pure Derek Hough. Also, be sure to see US Weekly for some photos of Mark Ballas and girlfriend BC Jean dressed up as Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love when they attended Maxim Magazine’s Halloween BASH in Beverly Hills last week. They look hilarious. Instagram below if you haven’t seen it yet.
This is so cool. Yesterday Dancing With The Stars contestant Bindi Irwin tried to bring as much Halloween happiness to the kids at the Children’s Hospital In LA. See below. You can also see some really sweet photos at the Daily Mail.
Awww….I love me some Hayes and Emma. Such a surprising and likable young man!! Good dancer too, especially considering his age.
ETA: Here are Hayes and Emma on The View!
What’s everyone doing for Halloween??
Well…if the crew set out to hotbox the studio, they succeeded 😛 Seriously, though – what a colossal production FUBAR. I could barely see some of the dances through all that smoke, and trying to even see the judges and Tom afterwards was a struggle. I have to wonder if it negatively affected some of the couples as well – especially the ones that stuck to the main floor and didn’t hop up on any platforms. Talk about props getting in the way – and this, kids, is why themes can really screw up an otherwise decent evening. BEWARE THE SMOKE MONSTER.
And the smoke wasn’t the only monster in the ballroom last night. Unfortunately, I felt like at least 2/3 members of the judges panel devolved into gossipy teenage girls when giving critiques, and came across as vindictive and childish. I’m also completely OVER the whole “Derek’s never lost!” plotline they pose in every team dance, so now that he’s actually lost – can we please come up with something more compelling to talk about? It was clear Derek didn’t give a rat’s ass, and perhaps the only ones that did were a certain other pro and his fans. It’s time to find some new material, guys.
On the upside? I actually found Leah a lot more natural and enjoyable last night, and she seemed much more at ease. Much more like the Leah I loved hosting back in season 19. As for Hayes getting eliminated – he did far better than I thought he would this season, so I give him BIG props there. But though I hate to say it, I think he’s partially responsible for his own elimination – as I mentioned last week, he seemed to place too much emphasis on #VoteForTeamSlayes trending on Twitter and not nearly enough on actual voting…and when your fanbase is a bunch of impressionable teenage girls that will blindly follow your every whim, I think you need to be VERY CLEAR on what it is you need from them. Remember, kids: as much emphasis as this show sometimes puts on social media, Twitter hashtags will not keep you in this competition – only votes will. So you may as well forget about Twitter and just focus on the votes…something to keep in mind next week… Read more..
Is it just me, or is Val very lacking in imagination when it comes to Halloween costumes?? 😀 Love Peta and Maks’ costumes, although I think Maks has worn something similar before. Mark and BC’s costumes speak to their inner selves, I think – a bit bohemian, very artistic. Cheryl Burke was there too, sans costume, but she looks great. I give everyone an A except for Val and Cheryl. Come on dude. It’s Halloween. Cheryl, at least I love the dress. 😉
Thanks to DWTSGossip for the heads up on these – I’ve lost my touch these days. Vogue does the media.
Preview Of Bruno Tonioli In Sun TV Magazine’s Exclusive Halloween ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Special Feature
Aren’t the two images of Dancing With The Stars judge Bruno Tonioli below just spectacular? They are part of a new Halloween “Strictly Come Dancing” Exclusive feature inside Sun TV Magazine. Craig Revel Horwood is also pictured on the cover along with Bruno. The photographer for the cover shoot is Simon Webb.
Editor Steven Corbit tells PureDWTS that Bruno was dressed as a vampire on the shoot at his request. He loved the outfit. It was done on a Saturday at the Strictly studios just before filming began for the UK version of Dancing With The Stars. Bruno had just flown back from filming Dancing With The Stars in the US. The full interview with Bruno will be online on Saturday at Sun TV Magazine.
Special thanks to Sun TV Magazine for the fun pics and preview. You can follow them at twitter at @suntvmagazine. You can follow photographer Simon Webb at @simonwebbphoto and at Simon Webb Photography.
ETA with another fun teaser: We’ve also been told that Bruno is doing a Salsa with a skeleton for this shoot (hilarious!). For extra pictures and the full interview with Bruno and Craig see Sun TV Magazine. Thanks again to Samantha and Steven at Sun TV Magazine and Simon Webb for the Halloween goodies!!
This is too fun if you haven’t seen some of these pics yet. Some of the pros and cast members of Dancing With The Stars dressed up to attend some Halloween Parties in the last several days. Snooki attended the “Night Of The Living Drag” at Providence in New York City while Derek Hough, Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy (along with their friend Alex Sanders who provided the pic below at twitter. Kate Upton was there too) attended the Casamigos Halloween Party at the home of Mike Meldman in Beverly Hills, California. You can view more pictures of them all at Pure Derek Hough, Zimbio Pictures, and The Daily Mail. Don’t they look fantastic? Former pro Julianne Hough has made some headlines with this costume too.
