What a fun episode with Derek and Maria on “LIVE With Kelly” yesterday. They danced a Jive and celebrated Derek’s birthday. If you missed it, you can view it below. Then be sure you head on over to Pure Derek Hough. Our Miss Heidi has more fun things from the episode to share, screen caps from GMA, Derek arriving back in L.A., Elara’s collages, and MORE! A great wake-up call for an early Friday morning. I must say! 😀
Did any of you tune in to see Carrie Ann Inaba on LIVE! With Kelly yesterday? She didn’t mention anything on Dancing With The Stars’ new season, but, she was a kick to watch. She and Kelly Ripa definitely have that magic it takes to co-host together in my opinion. Carson Kressley did a segment with the wedding rehearsal dinner which was good too. Carrie Ann raved on his “Moves Like Jagger” dance from last season. She also said (joked?) she’d love to see him back to do the show again a second time and he agreed. Lots more below and at the LIVE! With Kelly official site.
Don’t forget to tune into Friday’s show as we’ll get to see the wedding couple dance and more of Derek Hough teaching them in some pre-filmed footage hopefully. Also, watch this facebook page closely, they might post some “behind the scenes” pictures and video footage.
Dancing With The Stars judge, Carrie Anne Inaba, is looking fantastic and looks to be in top form for the new season of Dancing With The Stars, doesn’t she? Zimbio has some fantastic shots of her on the beach and in her homeland of Hawaii which you can here if interested. According to her twitter, she’s been enjoying their fine food and has even taken some time to go bowling. Stay tuned! As we reported to you earlier, Carrie Anne will be helping to co-host on LIVE! With Kelly again on Wednesday for their Hawaiian Wedding coverage. It will be interesting to see if she says anything about Dancing With The Stars? Carson Kressley will have a fashion update on the wedding as well according to the LIVE! With Kelly website and this tweet. Too fun!

Isn’t that a beautiful picture of Derek and Kelly Ripa? Today he was a guest on her show from Hawaii where they previewed his dance lessons with the chosen wedding couple. He also mentions how the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars will be his 9th season. Be sure to visit Pure Derek Hough for more awesome takes from the show. Then stay tuned later to Pure Derek Hough as no doubt Heidi will have some video coverage for us as well.
(Can I just say…that million dollar smile going down the slide and under the water today was a “keeper”. 😀 )
Just a couple of TV mentions! Don’t forget Derek Hough and Carrie Ann Inaba will be guesting and helping Kelly Ripa to co-host ‘LIVE! With Kelly’ this coming week in Hawaii. Derek just landed in Hawaii. He’s been posting some cool instagrams at his twitter account already such as this beautiful scene from his hotel below.
Also, KHON2 in Hawaii interviewed Kelly this past week leading up to the tapings. Here’s one of them below as a little teaser for what’s to come…
Stay tuned to Pure Derek Hough as knowing our Miss Heidi, she will have lots of ‘Derek’ coverage when she gets it. In fact, she’s got some nice things up now you don’t want to miss seeing…and that’s all I will say. 🙂
Also, be sure to tune into Good Morning America on Monday! According to ABC MediaNet, Brooke Burke will guesting to share her workout tips. Let’s hope she gives us some teasers about the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Though if things keep going as they are, they won’t be much to speak of. 😯
Hi All!!! I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday!! Stay tuned for John’s announcement of our Brooke Burke Giveaway Contest winners. For now, here are some Dancing With The Stars odds and ends!!
First up, the producers of LIVE! With Kelly must have enjoyed Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba co-hosting with Kelly that they’ve asked her back. According to ABC Media, Carrie Ann will be helping Kelly on Tuesday, Feb. 22nd during LIVE! With Kelly’s “Hawaiian Week”. Lots of things are on tap for this special week in Hawaii including a wedding segment where Derek Hough will make an appearance again teaching the winning couple how to dance. Carson Kressley will also join in to help the couple with their wedding attire on Wednesday, Feb. 23rd. You can read more on the week at ABC Media.
In other TV mentions, Dancing With The Stars pro Mark Ballas will be weighing in on “VH1’s 100 Greatest Women In Music”. The 5-hour special will rank the “biggest of the big” including Madonna, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston and more. Hours 1 and 2 will air February 13th at 10PM. For more details and other episode times, be sure to visit MarkBallas.com.
Moving on to another dancing pro!!! Have you noticed Lacey Schwimmer’s recent twitter profile picture? It looks like she’s changed her hair to a more darker shade. Well, Rex Features has some close ups of Lacey walking out and about in Los Angeles recently. Her hair is a little different from her new twitter profile picture, but, you can her current look here. What do you think? I’m liking it. I hope she goes with more natural highlights like this (versus something funky) for the show if she’s picked again.
For some more news on Derek Hough, this week he attended a Cold Play concert in Los Angeles. Don’t miss some fun shots of him at Pure Derek Hough. Heidi has also posted some cool new Cobu3D collages. A MUST SEE Derek Hough Fans!! 🙂
Thanks to this news from Evaine, Maks courted his Mom to an Espen Salburg fashion show this week looking gorgeous as ever and happy. See a fun picture of them here.
Last, but, not least, back to Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke. This week Brooke was seen on a beach in Malibu taking shots for a new photo shoot. According to her twitter, she was shooting a summer cover for Prevention Magazine. Below is a picture of her walking in the sand all smiles. You can view more pictures and read more on the shoot at the Daily Mail. Nice, I’m loving this dress!!
Ok, that is all for now. Maybe more later…if you’re good? 😉 xx
Kelly Ripa needs to seriously dance on Dancing Wth The Stars! See if you don’t agree after she busts out some “figure 8” hip action for Derek Hough in the video above? 😯 Yesterday, Derek was Kelly’s co-host on her show again. As always, he was charming, gorgeous, humble, and a total class act. You can watch the whole show in full at Pure Derek Hough. Our Miss Heidi worked overtime last night to get some high quality footage and some stills for us. So, be sure to check them out and give her a big shout out.
Many of you have probably seen the Instagram above from Derek Hough’s twitter or Pure Derek Hough. It’s a still from his movie Cobu3D. It’s so hot, I had to post it too. 🙂 I have other reasons for posting it as our Princess Heidi has a new video teaser you all need to see of Derek on the set and looking fabulous as always. What’s more, Derek is sporting a tattoo (note: Heidi reports the tattoo was done only for the MOVIE!) Be sure to read all about it, view the video, and see some new set pics at Pure Derek Hough. This movie is just looking that more interesting by the day. Who plans to go see it on it’s premiere weekend? 🙂
Just a reminder: Don’t forget Derek will be helping to co-host on LIVE! With Kelly again on February 6th!!!
Today, Carrie Ann Inaba was Kelly Rippa’s co-host on “LIVE! With Kelly” . To my surprise, they played off of each other really well and Carrie Anne was a hit as a host (in my opinion). They didn’t talk much of Dancing With The Stars except to say how Bruno likes to smoke in his underwear before showtime. 😯 They also remembered back to last year when Carrie Ann’s finance (who she met on E Harmony) proposed to her. Kelly convinces Carrie Ann that the show would “marry” them in Hawaii too if she wanted. They also discuss Carrie Ann’s love for animals and current animal rescues. Check out the fun segment below if interested.
DWTS Odds & Ends: Lacey Schwimmer, Tristan MacManus, Maks’ Birthday Bash, Anna Trebunskaya, Derek Hough
Happy TGIF Dancettes! There are some fun pics floating around out there of some our Dancing With The Stars pros and current fun projects!! Wanna See??
First up, check out this sweet picture of Lacey Schwimmer and Tristan MacManus. As you know from a previous report, the two are in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida currently teaching dance classes at the Fred Astaire Studios. Tristan was so polite as always as he even gave the photographer and big fan a kiss on the cheek before she left class. You can view more pics like this HERE and be sure to “like” Shannon Quinlan Photography at facebook and thank her for the great pics.
As you know, tonight is Maks Big Birthday Bash at Dance With Me Studio’s in New York City. Last night at twitter, Court noticed singer and TV Personality from RHONJ, @MelissaGorga, tweeting a picture of herself, 2 other girls …oops, make that three (Help? I’m not sure who they are?), Maks, and Tony. I think the pic below must have been for a preliminary event at Neiman Marcus because @YaninaEE at twitter also posted this picture with them giving Maks a birthday cake. If someone knows more, please let us know.
Speaking of Mak’s Birthday Bash, I hope Maks is ready for a good roasting tonight. Check out what Tony told Life & Style Magazine this week….
“We constantly get requests from people who want to meet us or watch us dance live,” Tony, who is co-hosting the event along with Maks’ brother Val, tells Life & Style. “So we decided to throw this bash honoring Maks’ birthday and also give fans a little taste of what we all experience on DWTS. It’s going to be very entertaining, with singers, dancing and a lot of fun.”
The highlight of the night, says Tony? A roast of the tempestuous birthday boy.
“All of us are actually going for it a little bit,” laughs Tony. “But Maks is a good sport when it comes to the roast — he may not show it then, but he could be a little upset later!”
I like that word “tempestuous”. It describes Maks well sometimes …uhhh, among other descriptions. Stay tuned. We hope to have more coverage on this event in the coming days.
Next up, we have our sweet, fiery, red headed Russian, Anna Trebunskaya! Currently, Anna is on tour with the “Forever Tango” cast until February. I thought this was a cool promo shot. For more pics, scheduling, and ticket information, be sure to visit Forever Tango. This would be one fun show to take in!!
Lastly, be sure to make your calendars. If you haven’t heard yet, Derek Hough will be helping to co-host “Live! With Kelly” again on February 6th. He will help to interview Debra Messing and Atticus Shaffer. No doubt some fun times are ahead for this show again with Derek’s involvement and he and Kelly work and play well together. Now if only we could get her to dance on Dancing With The Stars? 🙂
