How about these dresses? Last night, Karina Smirnoff and Peta Murgatroyd attended the 2014 Carousel Of Hope Ball Presented By Mercedes-Benz at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. I think they look stunning. To see more pictures, see Getty Images.
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?!?!
Last night, Sharna Burgess, Peta Murgatroyd, Witney Carson, Karina Smirnoff, Artem Chigvintsev, Jonathan Bennett, Janel Parish, and Lea Thompson attended People’s ‘Ones To Watch’ Event at The Line in Los Angeles, California. Aren’t they gorgeous. Click on the pictures to see more. Beautiful and prays I didn’t miss anyone?
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?
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!

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

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!
So, everyone was surprised to see Randy go – as was I. But in looking back to last weeks “Dancing by the Numbers” post, we probably shouldn’t have been. We’re dealing with SMALL numbers here, and Tavis and Randy were both in a four-way tie, only 11k votes per million votes cast above Michael. What does that mean? Well, it means that for Betsey and Tommy to be safe, they only needed ONE more vote than Randy and Tavis. ONE. It also means that Michael got 11k more vote per million votes cast than both Tavis and Randy (at least). Really, is that SO surprising? Watching Betsey and Tommy last night, I’m not surprised either of the survived. Michael over Tavis – yes, we called that. Michael over Randy?? Ummm…that’s a bit more surprising. But the DWTS audience has shown time and again that they love guys like Michael. Problem is, they also love the Betsey’s and the Tommy’s – as do I.
That means one of two things. First is that Michael’s time has very possibly run out. The second is that if Michael’s time hasn’t run out, watch out Antonio. But I get ahead of myself – I haven’t even looked at the numbers yet – that’s just my sense of things in Week 3, going into week four (ALREADY!!).
Anyway, let’s take a look at last night’s scores and percentages:
Since Randy had a score awarded to him, I’ve included that in my total. Do they do it that way? Well, they say total judges points awarded, but who knows. At this stage it makes little difference in the votes needed. Read more..
As usual, I will be watching this with the rest of you – never manage to see it ahead of time.
Rise and shine, All!! Below are some more Afterbuzz TV interviews that took place after Dancing With The Stars Monday night with JC Rubio. From these interviews, we learn that Betsey and Tony have a Jive and it will be “very special”. As you know from yesterday’s media postings, Antonio and Cheryl have a Samba. Witney and Alfonso have a Jazz. Emma and Michael have a Quickstep. They tease more on these dances below. Watch out…Antonio plans to take his shirt off (why do they have to make a big deal out of that always? lol)
Stay tuned,… they may post a few more interviews at Afterbuzz TV soon.
Also, here is some footage of Mark and Sadie on Access Hollywood…. Read more..
