A Maybe For Chelsea Kane And New Dancing With The Stars All-Star Season

Chelsea Kane loved her time on Dancing With The Stars, but, she says, “the sequel is never as good as the movie” when comparing the thought to coming back a 2nd time for the All-Star Season. Below she talks about it on Access Hollywood where she mentions that she would maybe (“a big question mark”) consider it.

Yes or No for Chelsea? I can’t decide? From Mark’s partners, I think I’d rather see Katherine Jenkins come back?

Speaking of… below is our Dancing With The Stars season 14 2nd place champ working the Red Carpet at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards at Berkeley Square Gardens in London last night looking stunning as always…

Dancing Pro Mark Ballas To Work With Timbaland, Bangladesh And The Beamer Boyz

Mark wrote his last blog for the season at USA Today. He talks of how proud he is of taking an “unknown” to the finals and how thankful he is for all the fan support for he and Katherine Jenkins. They had a great time in New York City making the press rounds after the show. He also took some time to celebrate his birthday and spend time with his mom Shirley Ballas (pictured above). You can read on Mark’s summer plans below of working on a new album and working with music moguls and producers like Timbaland, Bangladesh, and the Beamer Boyz. He hopes to be back for the All-Star season of Dancing With The Stars.

This summer, I will be working on a new album. I recently signed to BMG as a writer/artist and will be working with some amazing producers like Timbaland, Bangladesh and the Beamer Boyz. I’m really looking forward to resting my body for a little and focusing on music and other things. Make sure to keep up with me on twitter @markballas for more updates during the break.

Until then, this wild animal is going to take a break and hopefully they will let me back out of my cage for DWTS’ All-Stars season! Hope to see you there!

Be sure to read more at USA Today if interested. Picture courtesy of Zimbio Pictures.

Vote for Your Favorites in the PureDWTS Season 14 End-of-Season Awards!!!

 Ok kids, it’s time once again to vote of our biannual “end-of-season” awards…our sort of “wrap up” for season 14, where we see what you guys think were the highs and lows of this season :-) If you want to get a feel for how these awards work, you can check out previous seasons’ award recipients here.

First, the rules: I’ve picked what I deem to be the most likely candidates (with the strongest chance of winning) for each category – of course, some of you are going to disagree, and that’s fine.  If you don’t see your pick listed as an option, you can write-in your own nomination in the “other” box.  But here’s my biannual disclaimer about the dreaded “other” box: if I can’t read what you wrote because it’s badly misspelled/grammatically nonsensical/generally incoherent, YOUR VOTE WILL NOT COUNT.  If your response to the question does not make sense (i.e. you simply vote “Donald” for best dance), YOUR VOTE WILL NOT COUNT.  If you simply repeat one of the already listed responses because you can’t be bothered to actually pay attention, YOUR VOTE WILL NOT COUNT.  If you’re just generally being a nudnik and giving harassing responses, YOUR VOTE WILL NOT COUNT.  *shakes head* I still can’t believe that I have to give this spiel twice a year…

…anywho, we’ll give you guys a week to get your votes in, and then we’ll reveal the results in a series of posts starting next week.  Now ready…set…VOTE!!! 😀

DWTS Season 14 Stats Class: Week 10 Scorecard

Whelp… the last scorecard for Season 14… I’m going to skip to the niceties and just go straight to the table of score differentiation:

Am I the only one that is mildly entertained that William has the largest point difference between his predicted scores and actual scores… with Katherine a point beneath that. While in the meantime, Donald is actually a lot closer being just one point off from the past? When you add the scores from Tuesday night’s show into the table Donald has the smallest point difference of the final three…

So let’s look at William’s scoring progression:

Although there are times over the season that William appears to score similar to what was originally predicted or even below, for the most part he has scored a few points over the predicted score. So let’s look at everyone else.

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

Dancing With The Stars Season 14 Media After The Finals Part 2 (Includes GMA Interview)

So, after a round of interviews with the press, our Season 14 Champs, Donald and Peta joined the Jimmy Kimmel LIVE Show via satellite. Jimmy is a goof ball as always as he tries to put them on the spot. 😯

PopTVDotCom was able to capture some of the cast going to some after parties after the show. They have good things to say on the winners and how much fun they had…

Saving the best for last, below is Donald & Peta, Mark & Katherine, and William and Cheryl on Good Morning America today after catching a red eye to New York City last night. GMA asks them some great questions, Len has a special message for Donald and it’s well deserved, William’s little boy shows some love (a total awwww moment), and the couples dance too….

PureDWTS Season 14 Media After The Finals Part 1

Wow, where do we begin this morning? First of all, I want to stress: DON’T LEAVE US! The show never stops at Pure Dancing With The Stars!! As our Princess Heidi mentioned last night in her Spoiler Post, “a few episodes of Cheesecake, a team retrospective look at Season 14 (warts and all), and a numbers post looking at the entire season” is coming up. Courtney hosts an Awards. Marianya’s got some cool things planned in the mix. We’ll post some new Questionnaires and Polls. Also, we report on any and all news and rumors out there on all the Pros and the upcoming Season all summer. So, stay tuned. You don’t want to miss anything (as several of you did last season when the rumors started flying which, fyi, began EARLY in the off season). 😉 With that said, below are a few interviews to start off the day after such a glorious and one of the best finals in Dancing With The Stars history. Congratulations again to Season 14 Champs Peta and Donald….and same to Katherine & Mark, William and Cheryl, and ALL the couples this season. They are all winners and gave it everything they had.

Ok, let’s get to some interviews this morning from Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight for starters….

E Online interviewed the cast after the show with their thoughts about coming back for the All-star season….

Roshon Fegen told us that he’s totally game for coming back if he was asked and if his schedule permits, along with Gavin DeGraw, who was a little more apprehensive about the idea, but said he’d consider it.

Meanwhile, Gladys Knight, Katherine Jenkins and Donald Driver were all iffy about giving the ballroom competition dancing another go.

Jenkins said that she needs a break (which we totally understand) and Driver has football coming up, so that might get in the way. But he already won the whole shebang, so it wouldn’t exactly be fair to add him into the mix, anyway. Don’t you think?

Although the judges don’t get a say in who will come back for DWTS’ all-star edition, Carrie Ann Inaba told us that she’d like to see Apolo Anton Ohno, Kirstie Alley and “definitely” Gilles Marini (yeah, we wouldn’t mind seeing him shake his bon-bon again, either).

As always, don’t miss the After Buzz TV interviews as well.

More coming up! Stay tuned!! 😉

SPOILERS!!! DWTS Season 14…And The Winner Is???

And the hyperbole plays on. They are really trying hard to sell this season as the best ever, with CAI telling Katherine she had one of the best dances ever and Len claiming that Willy’s Cha Cha was right up there with the best in 14 seasons, we have them adding to the hyperbole using Tom as a mouthpiece. Spare me, gang, you’re just insulting my intelligence now.

Okay, with the spoiler space for twitter dispensed with…..WHOOOO HOOO!!  Okay. Had to get that out of my system.  CONGRATULATIONS TO DONALD AND PETA!!!!!

Here are the official standings:

Third Place: William and Cheryl

Second Place: Katherine and Mark

Winner of Season 14:  Donald and Peta

Great finale, all in all – all the returning contestants did great. And may I toot my own horn?? I called Donald back in week one or two. 😉

How did we all do this week?  Well…

Heidi: predicted Donald as the winner, William as second with Katherine as third

Courtney: predicted Donald as the winner, William as second and Katherine third.

Vogue: Ever the rogue, Vogue said that Donald would win, Katherine would take second and Willy would come in third.

And Vogue gets it right once again!!

Gang, don’t tune out right away. We’ll have a few episodes of Cheesecake, a team retrospective look at Season 14 (warts and all), and a numbers post looking at the entire season, attempting to answer the question of William Levy – if he hadn’t been constantly over scored, would he have gone home a lot sooner?? Or did the general audience get wise to the pimping like my little sister did??

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)
