Hollywood Reporter Interviews DWTS Executive Producers, Including Questions about Heather Morris Extensive Dance Background
Well this is certainly an interesting interview. Remember the old saying “Me thinks they doth protest too much?” Yeah. This. 🙂 Hollywood Reporter interviews executive producers Joe Sungkur and Ashley Edens about DWTS, including some tough questions about Heather Morris and her very obvious dance experience…and our execs have the company line down pat. Even if it is complete BS. Excerpts (and commentary) below. The way they write about Heather, it’s entirely possible that everyone (besides us) is starting to realize this show has jumped the shark totally and completely.
While most of the ensemble represents the show’s standard mix of actors, reality stars and pro athletes, there is one notable exception with the addition of Morris. Long before she became a household name as Brittany S. Pierce on Fox’s hit musical comedy, Morris was a professional dancer working for Beyonce. She danced backup on The Beyonce Experience world tour, and danced alongside her on Saturday Night Live, the American Music Awards and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, among others.
They really drive the point home here, don’t they? I think I love them. 😉
Courtney: When the “coven” at Pure ain’t the only ones hip to the fact A PROFESSIONAL DANCER is part of the celeb cast this season and aren’t afraid to call TPTB out on it, you know this is gonna be a tough season for the higher-ups at DWTS.
Vogue: Oh boy, I can see what’s coming already.
Ahead of the premiere, The Hollywood Reporter spoke with longtime executive producers Joe Sungkur and Ashley Edens to find out what’s in store for the season, whether or not they think Morris has an unfair advantage, the reason behind the lack of Bachelorette stars and their dream contestants.
Again, more on Heather…and they’re bringing up the sore, Bachelorette point.
What’s the process like when pairing the stars with the professional dancers? What were the conversations for this season like? How much say do the dancers have in who they dance with?
Eden: There’s no real science or a perfect formula behind the pairing process. The dancers don’t have a say in who they’re getting. Jo, myself and [casting director] Deena [Katz] who books the cast. Deena will know the celebrities a little bit more. Joe and I work with the dancers day in and day out so together we try and make the best pairings based on height, personality [and] dance ability or lack there of. We try not to always put predictable pairings together. You’re not seeing Witney [Carson] with the exact same type person every single season. That’s a challenge. And ultimately we want everyone to be happy whether it’s the celebrity or the dancer. That’s at the forefront in making the strongest pairings.
Below are things from social media capturing our eye over the last few days and more. Only two more days and counting down to the Dancing With The Stars Season 24 premiere. How do they look? Let us know in comments….

Lots more goodies…. Read more..
It’s that time once again, folks…who got the easy dances and who got hosed…only hosed isn’t really hosed in week 1 if you’re a female celeb. Get the hard stuff out of the way early, eh?
You all probably saw Vogue’s post from a couple days ago with the press release about the songs and dances, but I do this post every week in hopes we’ll get the dance order too. Cross your fingers.
ETA: Claire (via DWTSGossip) has a screencap of what looks like the telepromptr which says Normani and Val are going first tonight. We’ll see, as these things can change during dress. But it makes sense since she’s a dancer and they like to open the show with a bang.
Normani and Val – Quickstep (Song: “Good Time Good Life” by Erin Bowman)
Bonner and Sharna – Cha Cha (Song: “Move” by Luke Bryan)
Charo and Keo – Salsa – (Song: “Cuban Pete” by Mambo Compañeros)
