Edyta Sliwinska, Karina Smirnoff, And Chelsie Hightower Interviewed About “Dancing Pros Live”, DWTS, And More – Video
Today Edyta Sliwinska, Karina Smirnoff, And Chelsie Hightower were interviewed by 13NewsNow about Dancing Pros Live and more. Lovely as always! If you haven’t seen the show, be sure to get tickets here.
Karina Smirnoff talked about her new book “We’re Just Not That Into You” on Good Morning America today. She talked on dating and how everyone leads you to “Mr. Right”. She’s so beautiful and fun as always….
WCNC in North Carolina interviewed Edyta Sliwinska. They ask her about her show “Dancing Pros Live” and what it’s about. Edyta also teaches them some fun dance moves. She looks so pretty as always. If you haven’t seen the show, be sure to get tickets here. Also, and if you haven’t done so, you can read my personal review of the show in this previous post. It includes lots of pictures of Edyta, Karina Smirnoff, and the entire cast. I had the time of my life that day. I highly recommend the show if you haven’t seen it yet!
Or sort a live anyway. Everything hinges on how they decide to do this. Not to mention that it’s 6am here and “Live” isn’t a word that describes me at this hour. I will do my best to put all the info that comes out into this post. They keep hyping that it’s going to be “BIG” and all other kinds of adjectives that probably won’t live up to the hype – but we will see soon enough. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the live updates that aren’t actual Pro names.
And here are your Pros – supposedly this is IT:
Val – IN
Tony – IN
Mark – IN
Artem – IN
Sharna – IN
Peta – IN
Emma – IN
Witney – IN
Allison – IN
Kym – IN
ETA: Teasing the announcement at 7:20ish. :::sigh:::
ETA2: I’ve done a great job on my eyebrows while waiting for this announcement…. 😉
ETA3: Definitely Kym Johnson in silhouette!! Damn, missed the baby pix. Court is saying one is Mark and there’s a little blonde boy. And Emma.
ETA4: I’ve gotten used to the far superior CBS This Morning which doesn’t have nearly the commercials and a lot more actual news. GMA is….not good.
ETA5: I don’t think those fans are that good – might be right on Val, but the other one looked like Artem to me. Love Melissa’s haircut.
ETA 6: Lost my stream, relying on Court. Val is for sure. They are claiming this is Len’s last “year”.
ETA 7: Still with the bigger and better tag line. Yeah. Sure. Switch up week is back.
ETA8: Hmmmm…..said there were four in studio and they have six more. ONLY TEN???
ETA9: If this is it, there’s going to be trouble on twitter.
ETA10: Questions to the pros. Val’s dream partner. Answer: His season 20 partner. Question to Sharna: How do you prepare for the season? Answer: Picking music, etc.
Well everyone, discuss!! Is this it for the pro dancers this season? Are they holding a few back because Celebs haven’t signed yet? What do you think of this cast?
ETA11: Vogue here. According to US Weekly, TWO more pros will be announced at a later date!
ETA12: The Official Site has announced there will be two more pros announced later. There is a great write up on the ten pros announced today at the link too.
ETA13: ABC Media Net released an official announcement of the 10 pros. They also release info on the theme nights one of which includes “Spring Break” night. WHA?? 😯

DANCING PROS LIVE Report and Review:: “You will be touched, you will smile, you will laugh….and you will also “Oooo” and “Awwww”
Wow, what a week it’s been….and a magical one at that! I was so blessed to see “Dancing Pro Live” in Cheyenne, Wyoming and then in Denver, Colorado. I am so glad I saw both shows because each had different dances and mixed things up. That’s why I think it always pays to go more than once to a dance show if you can because you never know what’s going to happen and such is true for Dancing Pros Live.
I was struck immediately with the fabulous “state of the art” light show. It set the tone for the whole show for what was to come…..a show of professionalism, high entertainment, royalty, and class. Also, with the additional times of the stage smoking and steaming combined with the lights, it made one feel as if time had stood still. It made you feel as if you were in a dream.
I can’t rave enough about all the dancers and cast. They were carefully selected with a fun mix of personalities. For instance:
-Edyta Sliwinska and Alec Mazo couldn’t have been more elegant, flawless, powerful, gorgeous, sexy, classy, and romantic as everything they are known for. Edyta is a Princess and she is as limber as the day when she was on Dancing With The Stars. They took my breath away and left me spellbound like always. True Dancing With The Stars Legends!
-Benji Schwimmer and Torri Smith’s choreography couldn’t have been more entertaining, dynamic, clever, show stopping, and fun for all of their numbers. Benji beats to a different drummer. He’s phenomenal. So much so, I would love to see him be a Pro on Dancing With The Stars now.
-Chelsie Hightower and Dmitry Demidov had wistful, beautiful and athletic routines. Their extension and lines were so beautiful. Every time Chelsie came on stage, she would light it up just like on Dancing With The Stars. She was like a “ray of light”. Read more..
LIVE BLOG is happening here, which is where all the pros will be added as it happens.
Well, a lot has happened since I last wrote one of these posts. In fact, I normally post pro watch for the spring season in early February – yet here we are. Why? Well, Derek is taking a season off to star at Radio City (looks so happy he may never come back), Cheryl appears to have retired from DWTS and is moving on to a different (reality-based?) show, and Val and Sharna are both blabbing about the next season.
And as of last night, Karina is OUT. Hell, I had this post scheduled for tomorrow and here I am posting it today – ya’ll gotta have somewhere to be sad about Karina. (ETA: Vogue was at last night’s show and came away with different and new info re: Karina. Stay tuned.)
In Sharna’s case, I think her hint means she’s definitely IN – after last season I don’t think she would be coy if there were any doubt. And if there is doubt? Bad move, girl. As for Val – I don’t think there’s any way in hell he won’t be on, with Maks and Derek gone and Mark making noise. No way. And he’s saying yes, he is back. Read more..
