Guest Blog On Kym Johnson’s Ridgewood, NJ Book Signing And Photos
On 1/19/16 I had the awesome opportunity to meet Kym Johnson at her book signing at the Bookends Bookstore in Ridgewood, NJ, with an added bonus of Robert Herjavec making a special guest appearance. Once I purchased her book “The 5 6 7 8 Diet,” we were all directed to go downstairs, where seats were set up for Kym to first give a talk about her book before she would actually begin her book signing. This was a very different set up from when I was there for both Derek Hough and Amy Purdy’s book signings. Within a few minutes, the press…Bergen.com…arrived and took pictures of some fans in the audience before ultimately taking many photos of our guest speaker! Then Kym made her grand entrance, and she was absolutely stunning!! She began to talk about herself…her background, DWTS both here and in Australia, her role as a pro and as a judge, her book and the meaning of 5 6 7 8 in the title, and lots of other interesting facts. Her story was extremely fascinating, and she captured and held our attention for the full 30 minutes she spoke. And her Australian accent…I love it!! Immediately following her talk, there was a Q&A session, which gave us further insight into her life. It was truly wonderful to get to know her. Right after she answered a few questions, it was time for us to meet Kym individually and have her sign and personalize our books. What a real pleasure it was to meet her personally and talk with her! She is such a sweetheart…most gracious and personable. During our conversation I told her that I read a fantastic review of her book by Vogue on PureDWTS, and she acknowledged that she had already seen it and said she was going to thank Vogue! What a real popular website!! I then told her that this was the bookstore where I had met both Derek and Amy for their book signings. A real popular place! Then as I turned around, about to walk away, I could see another line starting to form…this one was to meet a special guest, Robert Herjavec! He had been there throughout Kym’s talk, but remained out of the spotlight…until then! It was great meeting and talking with Robert for a few moments, and he most willingly signed everyone’s books as well. Overall, it was truly a wonderful evening meeting both Kym and Robert and seeing the beautiful relationship between them. I am thoroughly enjoying Kym’s book and am looking forward to seeing her perform on DWTS again!
Dancing With The Stars Kym Johnson was a guest on People Now today. You can watch her below talking about Robert Herjavec, her new book, and more. Thanks to Brittany for the heads up.
ETA: Here is more with Kym on People Now….
Dancing With The Stars Kym Johnson talked with People about her new book “The 5-6-7-8 Diet”. You can read below for why she wanted to write it. Kym also talked of her romance with Robert Herjavec.
“We were friends first, and we got to know each other on a friendship level; I think that’s really important,” the dance pro, 39, tells PEOPLE. “That developed into something else, and it’s really great. We’re both each other’s number one fans, and have respect for each other.”

“I wanted to create this workout so people can do the dances you see on Dancing with the Stars in a cardio way,” says Johnson. “Dancing is such a great form of exercise – you’re having fun and you’re getting fit. You don’t realize you’re working out!”
Johnson says people come up to her all the time saying they want to be transformed like the celebrities on the show, and her best advice is just to get out there and start moving.
“You just have to get started with it,” she says. “Sometimes that’s the hardest thing. You can do five minutes of exercise a day and build it up.”
Dancing With The Stars Kym Johnson is in New York City, New York to promote her new book “The 5-6-7-8 Diet”. Yesterday she did a book signing and visited with Extra. You can see some photos below.

Hey All! Today is the official release of Kym Johnson’s new book “The 5-6-7-8 Diet: The 14-Day Plan for Healthy, Lasting Weight Loss”. I got my copy and I just want to say that this book is so much more than a nutrition and exercise book. It reflects on Kym’s whole dancing career and what she’s learned along the way. She writes of her past partners on Dancing With The Stars and her training style. Let’s just say, Kym was tough and yet, she taught her partners so much more than just ballroom. She made them check their ego (if they had one) at the door. She also taught them grace, how to be confident if needed, and put their dreams into action. She also tells of finding love with Robert Hervjavec. Yes, you get to hear their personal story through her own eyes in the “cherry on top” ending chapter. I can’t stress enough what a gem of a read this is with wise and winning advice. I love how personal it is as she connects with the past …and the present. It’s also full of all kinds of fun photos too from her personal collection. It’s a great collector’s piece for any Dancing With The Stars fan. To order Kym’s book, go to ReganArts.com. Again, make sure you use the discount code “PUREDWTS” when ordering and you’ll get $7.00 off the purchase price.
