Karina Smirnoff Might Not Be Returning To Dancing With The Stars This Season

Is it possible Karina Smirnoff might not return for this season of Dancing With The Stars? E Online updates us. Here is a take below. You can also listen to Tony Dovolani talk on the link.

The professional dancer might not be returning to Dancing With the Stars this season after suffering a “serious” injury during rehearsals on Sunday, costar Tony Dovolani, who was with Karina when she went to the hospital, told E! News after Monday night’s show.

So what exactly happened that led to Karina’s hospitalization?

“She went to wet her shoes so that we could have better traction…she slipped and ran into the stairs with her shin, her arm,” Dovolani recalled. “I was so afraid because I saw half of it, basically on her way down. I thought she would hit her face or neck or anything like that, so luckily she didn’t.”

*Lots of prayers to Karina and a speedy recovery!

Karina Smirnoff Hurt In Rehearsals For Dancing With The Stars

Poor Karina! Let’s hope she’s going to heal up soon! From TMZ….

Sources close to the show tell us x-rays show she didn’t fracture anything, but just in case … producers are scrambling to find a replacement. Karina’s already been voted out, but she still performs in each show.

So sad I'm not able to perform tonight on the show. Got hurt yesterday rehearsing. Now, some TLC and I'll be back stronger then ever!

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Russell Wilson Said He Would Do Dancing With The Stars If….

Isn’t this an interesting instagram posted by Karina Smirnoff last night(see below)? Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, says he’d do Dancing With The Stars if they win the Superbowl this year. Note too how recently Russell said “no” to Dancing With The Stars, but “yes”, to a future season. He was also seen at rehearsals this season. We better keep a special eye on this one for Dancing With The Stars Season 20 and I’m dying for another football player to dance, are you?

So….calling out @dangerusswilson “if I win this year’s #SuperBowl, I’ll do next season of @dancingabc #DWTS” ~R.Wilson. Ok-Should we hold him to it?!?!

A Sneak Peek Of Sadie Robertson’s Dancing With The Stars “Hunter” Dress

E Online has a cool teaser up about Sadie Robertson and her dance tonight on Dancing With The Stars. You can see a sketch of her dress. You can also view what her Uncles might be wearing since they are dancing with her too. Be sure to see everything at E Online.

The feathered frock was designed by DWTS costume designer Daniela Gschwendtner, and Sadie is going to wear it while rocking out to Pharrell’s “Hunter” on tonight’s show.

But Sadie won’t be dancing with just her partner Mark Ballas; she’s also going to be joined on the dance floor by her uncles!

Si, Willie, Jase, and Jep are all going to be in the dance, and we’ve got your first look at their costumes as well! Check out the camo they’ll be sporting, because of course they’re going to wear camo. What else would you expect from the Duck Dynasty men?

Karina Smirnoff Writes On Last Week’s Elimination On DWTS, Wishes Cast The Best

Aww, it’s great to hear from Karina Smirnoff before the show. She writes a new blog at People about it and her elimination with Randy last week. She also wishes everyone well going forward.

I’m just enjoying the fact that Randy and I got to meet each other through the show, and we got to work together. We got to create incredible memories and hopefully gave the show’s audience something to enjoy with all our dances.

I’m going to miss the fact that we would laugh at each other and then laugh with each other, the fact that he’s so positive and always optimistic, how strong he is – he literally is probably the strongest guy I’ve ever worked with – and how we found ways to tone it down. I’m going to miss the choreography, the costumes, all of it. It is a fun show. It’s one of those experiences in your life where it gives you the highest of the highs, but then it also quickly reminds you of the lowest of the lows, so you never get too high up there!

Going forward, I want all these guys to do well. I love them, they’re my family. I hope they kill it!

You can read her full blog at People.

Ralph Macchio And Karina Smirnoff’s “Across Grace Alley” Available To Buy And Download, Note To Fans

If you haven’t seen Ralph Macchio And Karina Smirnoff’s short film “Across Grace Alley”, you can now buy and download at it’s official site. If you see it (or have seen it), let us know what you think of it in comments. Some of the words used to describe it so far in reviews are: ‘beautiful’, ‘touching’, ‘emotional’, and ‘lovely’ (sounds like Karina herself).

Also, Karina has written a note to her fans at facebook about her elimination with Randy Couture and how thankful she is to have met him and her other partners on Dancing With The Stars. She also wrote about “Across Grace Alley” and it’s release. Below is more. This tears me up. We love you, Karina!

Thank you all so much for your love and support this season. Although it was short lived, I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to meet a friend for life in Randy “The Natural” Couture and dance for all of you. I’ve always said that the most wonderful part of this show is the incredible fans/supporters who I get to interact with and share the journey with as well as the bonds I’ve been blessed to make. It is incredible that a film like Across Grace Alley was birthed out of the relationship Ralph Macchio and I formed while on #DWTS. Not to mention the other amazing people who worked tirelessly to make this film happen like my manager who raised the capital and helped develop my character to many of Ralph’s longtime “industry” friends who brought this story beautifully to life on screen. It is incredible all of this started with us meeting on Dancing with the Stars. I’ve also remained close to the majority of my previous partners and cheer them on and support them. People like Jacoby Jones, JR Martinez and Corbin Bleu have become my extended family. I say all of this to say how truly grateful I am to have had these experiences, to have met these inspiring people – including many of you and to be reminded that life is short. We are never guaranteed tomorrow but we have right now. The road is not easy but my hope is we can all look back on the journey and be thankful for it. Without the adversity and disappointment or the successes and times of triumph; we wouldn’t truly appreciate what we have accomplished and more important who we were blessed to meet along the way. I am humbled by your love, support and encouragement and hope you all know that whatever I do, wherever I am led, you all are a part of me and my motivation. I pray that today we can all follow our hearts, believe that the future is bright and push forward being present and thankful despite the unknown. Love you all! Excited that you can all now see Across Grace Alley by downloading it at www.acrossgracealley.com Xo K

PureDWTS Season 19 Poem For Week 3: “A “Flick”Tastic Motion Picture Show

Lois has out done herself again. Below is a new poem for Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Week 3…

A “FLICK”TASTIC MOTION PICTURE SHOW!

Whether you call it a movie, a cinema, a moving picture

MONDAY NIGHT WAS:

A “FLICK”TASTIC MOTION PICTURE SHOW!

Grab the popcorn, select your seat, and:

LET’R FLICKER:

The opening channelled Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio
A blockbuster way to capture the beat of a cinematic show

The entire cast in flicker mode, Kevin Hart joined in the fun
The ballroom took in the picture show, it finally had begun

FLICK NUMBER ONE – WEST SIDE STORY
JANEL AND VAL – JAZZ – AMERICA
WITH A CAST OF CHARACTERS/DANCERS

An Emmy worthy Broadway Show Revue, star making
Superb, stupendous, special, dynamite, dynamic

FLICK NUMBER TWO – THE GREAT GATSBY
JONATHAN AND ALLISON – TANGO
BACK TO BLACK

Precise, pristine pirouettes, feel of intense melancholy
Sparkling, shining, shimmering, Allison – a dazzling dress

FLICK NUMBER THREE – GHOST
BETSEY AND TONY – CONTEMPORARY
UNCHAINED MELODY

Lovely, lilting, luminescent lifts, a flexibility show
Graceful, glamorous, with a golden glow

FLICK NUMBER FOUR – BACK TO THE FUTURE
LEA AND ARTEM – CHA CHA CHA
POWER OF LOVE
BACKUP DANCERS – BAND – A CLASSIC CAR

Powerful dance with pulsating beats
Happy, toe-tappy, dance with heart

FLICK NUMBER FIVE – ROBIN HOOD
MICHAEL AND EMMA – WALTZ
EVERYTHING I DO, I DO FOR YOU

A wonderful, winsome waltz
Arrow through a heart of pure loveliness
Mesmerizing, melodic, masterful

FLICK NUMBER SIX – ROCKY III
RANDY AND KARINA – PASO DOBLE
THE EYE OF THE TIGER

Ferocious, fighting spirit, survival of a champion
With muscle power, embracing the dance

FLICK NUMBER SEVEN – SCENT OF A WOMAN
TOMMY AND PETA – ARGENTINE TANGO
POR UNA CABEZA

A story brilliantly told, tempting, tantilizing, poetic
A man leading a fierce woman, ethereal, authentic

FLICK NUMBER EIGHT. – AUSTIN POWERS
ALFONSO AND WITNEY – QUICKSTEP
HEY GOLD MEMBER
WITH SCENE STEALER – ALFONSO’S MINI ME

Fast, flowing, swinging 60s vibe
Velvety, vivacious, vibrant
10s across the board from Mini Me

FLICK NUMBER NINE – SINGIN IN THE RAIN
BETHANY AND DEREK – JAZZ
SINGIN IN THE RAIN
AN UNBRELLA SPECTACULAR

Paying homage and respect to the iconic Gene Kelly
Classic, stylish simplicity, tappy toe dancing extravaganza

FLICK NUMBER TEN – GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
ANTONIO AND CHERYL – FOXTROT
AIN’T NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH

Dashing, debonair, endearing, fun and finesse
Tripping the light fantastic, cool foxy-trot

FLICK NUMBER ELEVEN – UP
SADIE AND MARK – VIENNESE WALTZ
MARRIED LIFE

Darling, dreamy, delightful, charming, proper
Flying on balloons among the clouds, sun and stars

Kevin Hart, Josh Gad joined a dance troupe on the floor
HAND JIVE from GREASE, with hand movements galore

Movie Night was over, the popcorn all gone and time to go
It surely was A “FLICK”TASTIC MOTION PICTURE SHOW!

Written By Lois A Troutman, October 1, 2014

THE TIME CAME FOR A DANCING PAIR TO LEAVE THE SHOW!
KARINA AND RANDY TOOK THEIR BOWS, IT WAS TIME TO GO!

NEXT WEEK WILL BE A TEAR JERKER, THE MOST MEMORABLE YEAR!
PREPARE YOUR TISSUE SUPPLY, I’LL MEET YOU RIGHT BACK HERE!

NOTE: A wish came true for me to see HAND JIVE performed! Sweet!
