Julianne Hough attended Cosmopolitan Magazine’s 50th Birthday Celebration at the Ysabel on October 12, 2015 in West Hollywood, California. One of her sisters (Marabeth) and a friend from Nashville also attended the event with Julianne. Beautiful.
I didn’t mean to leave Erin out of these posts, but she’s blogging over on People this season. So, when possible, we’ll have one fashion post for all three of them.
So, what did you think of the show this week? I definitely missed Tom this week, but glad that he’s able to be there with his dad, it’s not an easy time. Alfonso didn’t do badly, but he definitely showed just HOW GOOD Tom is at his job! This is one week where I really enjoy the addition of contemporary and jazz, because most celebrities pick something sad for their most memorable year, and without these two styles, we get a whole lot of badly danced rumba. Each and every one of them seemed to be trying their hardest to show their story through dance– Some were just more successful than others. I think that Paula definitely should be the next one off, she’s the weakest link left. In most seasons, by the time the lowest tier dancers have left, it’s pretty clear who remaining are in that next tier, and who are in the top tier. I’m not seeing as big a division this season, it may be there, but I’m just not seeing it. Keep watching Heidi’s Number posts, because we could start hearing about “shocking exits” once Paula leaves. We know that none of those “shocking exits” are ever truly shocking, because we’ve seen the numbers, and Heidi’s explained who is most in danger of leaving, and why. And in case I’ve not said it before, Thank you, Heidi, for the hard work to put together the numbers posts each season.
AH, DWTS! That show we know and love and occasionally strongly dislike. What would we ever do without its constant need to create as much drama as possible? Sometimes I think that we should have a running tally of all of the…. Crud… that they make us wade through and revisit during the down time after the season is over. I’m not sure how to find the humor in some of it, however.
This week’s biggest manufactured dramas is still ongoing, and has BY FAR surpassed the rest of the manufactured drama from those silly scripted packages (but at least trying to get the gullible public into thinking Alek is interested in Lindsay’s other childhood best friend keeps the public’s eyes off the real budding romance. Need to find some silver lining in the whole thing. Afterall, they owe them that much, especially after what they did last season). Yes, Kim’s stroke. Yes, I do believe that her leaving the show is the BEST thing for her and for her family. How TPTB went about it was wrong, and in my opinion, only meant to create the drama we now have. It’s creating some free publicity for the show, and they only had to COMPLETELY BLINDSIDE one of their pros and a celebrity they knew could quickly and easily create the buzz they want! Don’t make Tom be the bad guy, do the dirty work yourselves!
Carrie Ann addresses it quickly in her Parade blog by saying:
Last night’s sudden elimination of Kim Zolciak Biermann was a shocker. It was the first time in 21 seasons of Dancing with the Stars that anyone had to be dismissed from the competition due to her inability to perform. Kim was unable to dance last night after suffering a mini stroke last week while traveling. I wish her a speedy recovery and hope that she now has the time to take good care of herself. This was a first for DWTS. In past seasons, Dorothy Hamill, Jewel and Nancy O’Dell dropped out of the competition due to injuries, but they did so willingly. Jewel and Nancy O’Dell dropped out right before the season started back in 2009. And Dorothy Hamill pulled out of the competition mid-season due to a serious back injury in 2013. Injuries are a scary part of the territory of being on DWTS. A stroke is a whole different thing. And it’s very serious. So take care Kim, we are all rooting for you!
Hmmm… I don’t know what to think about what she says. What are your thoughts?
Carrie Ann’s highlight dances were Nick and Sharna’s, Alexa and Mark’s, Tamar and Val’s, Alek and Lindsay’s and Bindi and Derek’s. And she spends some time to give advice to the rest of the group, so go over there to check out what she has to say.
And Julianne’s weekly fashion blog over at InStyle has been posted with some behind the scenes. And surprisingly enough, SHE did her own make up on Monday! And I loved it, she did a great job! And yellow is definitely a great color on her.
I want to end this on a happy note, so if you want a good case of AWWWW and possibly some melted insides, check out this recent post from Washington Post sports page, they interviewed Julianne’s fiance, Brooks Laich.
Also, who wore it better this week: Julianne or Carrie Ann?
What a week it’s been! I REALLY hope the producers kick this idea to the curb, and NEVER re-visit the thought again! Giving the couples TWO dances in only week 2 of the competition really was cruel and unusual punishment that not one of the pairs on the show deserve! And if I heard Witney correctly in her After Buzz interview, it was a complete surprise. Not fair, I think, to dump something like that on them at the last moment. And while I’m complaining, why does it seem that some of the couples were allowed to go rehearse Monday night, and others weren’t? I’m just going by Julianne’s question to Tamar and Val, when she asked if they went to practice, because what she’d commented on Monday seems to have been fixed. I know from Carlos and Alexa’s blog posts, both wanted and asked to go rehearse after the show Monday, and were told the rehearsal spaces were all closed. So, did anyone get to practice?
Julianne’s style blog has moved from People to InStyle, which seems to be a better fit, since it’s a blog about FASHION! She’s got a blog up for Monday, and another one for Tuesday, so go and check both of them out! There’s behind the scenes photos with her dogs, too. It’s amazing how different she looked both nights. Which night do you prefer? I loved her look on Monday, it felt soft, and romantic, while Tuesday seemed a lot more edgy, and while I like when her team plays up her eyes to make them “pop,” there was something I just didn’t like about the look on Tuesday.

Julianne Hough talked with People at New York fashion Week about Dancing With The Stars. Here are two celebrities she’s excited to see more from….
“I was shocked with Alek, I think he was even shocked by his ability, too!” said Hough, 27. “I don’t think anybody had any idea what to expect from him, and he was really graceful. He’s really charming, and I said it when I was judging him the other night, but I feel like he is the everyman, the everywoman, America’s representative. … And then Bindi was fantastic, her whole energy, her spirit is infectious.”
The Emmy-winning choreographer is also inspired by Bindi’s conduct outside competition.
“I just feel like she’s a really great role model for young girls because she looks like she is so comfortable in her own skin, where therefore makes everybody else feel comfortable in their skin,” Hough said. “So I just think she’s a great person to be on the show, to represent that she’s 17 and she likes herself, you know? It’s pretty awesome.”
