Kirstie Alley was on the Tonight Show last night with Jay Leno. She explains how her Dancing With The Stars partner Maks Chmerkovskiy taught her the Fox Trot. Teaching her to glide, Maks said all of her muscles are going to hurt…EVERYWHERE (if you know what I mean ). She’s a ham as always. More below including her playing the Match Game. You’ll be able to watch the full episode soon at The Tonight Show. Picture above is of Kirstie going to the Dancing With The Stars After Party Monday night courtesy of Zimbio Pictures. You can can view more pics of her at Zimbio here.
Did any of you happen to see Sherri Shepherd on the Jay Leno show Friday night? She goes through her whole time on Dancing With The Stars to when Tom Bergeron announced on twitter that it was going to be a “shocking elimination”. She didn’t think it was her being Carrie Anne said she was the “happiest contestant in history on Dancing With The Stars”. She is a hoot in this stand up piece. Check her out.
Stay tuned. As you know, Sherri and Val will be back to dance as well as all of the eliminated couples this week for the finals. Sherri tweeted this picture below of Maks and Tony in rehearsals writing that they were “flying thru the air” her. LOL!! This is going to be good….
Sherri tells Jay Leno how doing Dancing With The Stars is a “dream come true” for her. She made her first public apology to the celebrities before her who she poked fun. Now she knows how hard it is. She also addresses the dance cheating rumors again. Sherri also talks of how Val hurt his back in rehearsals dipping her. He also split his pants (lol). Sherri talks of all of her fears doing the show too and lots more…
Rob Kardashian was Jay Leno’s guest last night on the Tonight Show. Rob talks of some fun memories with his Dad, his sisters and their craziness, and of course, Dancing With The Stars. He use to hate dancing until he danced on Dancing With The Stars. They show him dancing the Cha Cha with Cheryl. Adam Sandler was there to throw in his two cents on it. Jay also asked Rob what he thinks of the judges and their harsh criticisms. Rob says he tries not to take what they say too seriously. He doesn’t go to his trailer and cry afterwards. He is just having fun and hopes to be there until the end.
I never thought I’d say this, but, I’m liking this guy more and more all of the time.
J.R. looked very cool in black last night as Jay Leno’s guest on The Tonight Show. He talked of why he first joined the Army in 2002 and what happened there after with the explosion. When J.R. first came out of the coma to see what happened to his face and body, he didn’t know how he’d go on. “Humor” was key in pulling him through and still is (as you can see in the interview). Jay asks J.R. on Dancing With The Stars as well. He’s having the time of his life and his Mom is too watching him. Much more below. Great interview!
Last night, David Arquette was Jay Leno’s guest on The Tonight Show. They talk of his recent birthday, being sober 9 months plus, and about his dancing on Dancing With The Stars. He said dancing is about being “centered and balanced” which goes with his new life in being sober, fit, and getting it together. He shows his abs and gives Jay personal information he doesn’t want to know. LOL All this and much more in the interview below.
Jay Leno interviewed Chaz last night on the Tonight Show. He starts out by calling him the “Chazmanian Devil”. They review Chaz’s journey so far on Dancing With The Stars. Jay tries to point out that Chaz had a bad diet before starting the show and Chaz says it’s not true. He had the bad diet before getting clean and sober 7 years ago. Chaz also talks of his previous dance experience. He took tap and ballet when he was little and took performing arts in high school (oh no, here comes the ringer debate again ;) ). They talk of the transgender debate as well and how Chaz let’s the criticism roll off his back. Chaz discusses how he’d like to maybe act or even be a late night TV host after his gig on Dancing With The Stars is up (good idea. I’d love to see that happen too!). All this and more below.
TV Guide has a new interview up with Chaz today as well. He talks of how the “injury” talk has been blown out of proportion (I agree. I wish interviewers would stop going on and asking him about it as if Chaz is complaining when he’s not. He wouldn’t even talk of it if they didn’t ask). He also discusses the great cast and the fun he’s having. Below is a take of what it felt like being in the bottom two. He also comments how the Rumba is easier and rehearsals are going well. More at the link!
What was going through your mind when you were called safe and realized you weren’t in the actual bottom two?
Bono: I was just really happy. Both of us didn’t want to stop participating in this, so Lacey and I were just incredibly relieved. You hope that [your fans can save you]. Also, we were one point off three or four other couples, so it wasn’t like we were way below. We knew we definitely had a chance to go home, but hoped we wouldn’t. We were really thrilled the fans got us through.
You scored a 17 two weeks in a row. What are you working on to bump up that up next week?
Bono: Nothing in particular. We just want to do the best job we can. Every dance has its own technique and I think each of us contestants has our own strengths and weaknesses. [The rumba] will definitely be easier for me, physically, than the quickstep. It’s slower and there’s no skipping, and rehearsals are going well.
Pure DWTS 12 – Hines Ward On Overcoming Fears, Sizing Up The Competition, and More (Videos, Interview)
Hines Ward told Jay Leno he never thought he’d be dancing like he is on the show. He wanted to do Dancing With The Stars in overcoming and facing his fears. He went into it blindly and is having a blast. He has a new respect for women for wearing heels. He sizes up the competition as well. Great interview below.
Hines sizes up the competition in his new blog for the LA Times as well. He’s just too cool.
There are just four people left. Size up the rest of the competition for us.
She has a lot of appeal cause she has a huge Hollywood fan base and she speaks her mind. People love her personality. And she has been dancing well. She is going to be someone to watch out for in the finals.
Chelsea looks and moves like a professional dancer. Her facial expressions are always great and she is a crowd pleaser and a judge favorite. Again, a tough competitor in this competition. She has style and grace.
Another tough competitor. Never quits. Always knows how to get the crowd pumped. He is light on his feet and is graceful in his moves. Ralph is in this competition to win it like the rest of us. The bottom line is from this point on any one of us could win this. It is so close and there is really no clear-cut front-runner. We all need to bring our ‘A’ game the next two weeks to have a chance to win.
More on this past week’s dances and more >>>>>HERE .
Also, see our earlier posting on Kym and a new injury >>>>HERE.
Ralph was Jay Leno’s guest last night. They talk on everything from Ralph’s marriage, when he had a bit of wildness at age 12, and, of course, Dancing With The Stars. Ralph jumped 100% into the show at the last minute and is loving it. He talks of he and Karina’s great relationsip and how they hope to continue on the same path as they did this last week. Watch below and then I have a question for you afterwards.
This is my second favorite couple next to Kirstie and Maks. Who is your second favorite couple?
What a fun interview this was last night! In case you missed Kirstie on The Tonight Show, see the videos below. Kirstie talks about why she decided to do Dancing with the Stars, the advice John Travolta gave her, the chemistry with Maks, and more. And doesn’t she look FANTASTIC??!!
