Dancing A Whole Other Dynamic For Nick And Vanessa Lachey (New DWTS Interview)

Vanessa Lachey talked with US Magazine about Dancing With The Stars and how it’s effecting her relationship with her husband Nick. She says they are not in competition with each other and they just want to have fun. Here is a take. Be sure to read more at the link.

“We don’t practice dancing with each other but it is nice because of the massages,” Vanessa told Us. “I’m like, I’ll rub your feet you rub my feet. That is fun. It really is another layer to our relationship. I can’t wait for the first live show, and I can’t to watch him. We did a little show the other day, we were at the same studio, and Maks and I came in and they showed us a little bit of their routine and we showed them a little bit of what we learned.”

She added: “It would be fun if we all made it to the finals.”

Vanessa admitted that she doesn’t really enjoy the gym, though. Luckily, Chmerkovskiy, 37, has no intention of pushing her to the extreme like her past “intense trainers.”

“It kind of seems childish. You have these grownups come, they signed on to do a show. It’s not like we’re in a summer camp together, and here I am making them do warmups and pushups and all that. It’s not me man,” he told Us. “I want to do my best and I want her to do her best too so we can do our thing. When I speed things up faster and faster, I know that there’s a leg that is able to do it. What is the point of pushing someone that I know for a fact that some of these people cannot be pushed? If you push, it’s going to break, and nobody wants that.”

Dancing With The Stars Season 25 Pros Weigh In On Rivalries And More

Be sure to pick up the new edition of US Weekly. Some of the pros of Dancing With The Stars Season 25 are featured on the cover. They talk on their rivalries and more. You can see the cover and some of the interviews HERE.


Us Weekly: Fess up, how fierce is the rivalry?

Peta Murgatroyd: It’s intense for the show. But in reality, we are good friends. It’s not like, “I have to beat Mark Ballas!”

Sharna Burgess: To be honest, I think the fans fight more than we do! The stories about bad blood and confrontation get blown out of proportion.

Mark Ballas: If you start thinking, “I have to beat this one,” you’ve got a major problem. This is about your partner.

Witney Carson: At the beginning of the season we’re all so excited. Then, when it starts getting serious, I shut my door because I don’t want anybody to see my routine! I am super-competitive.

Exclusive! The #DWTS stars aren't holding anything back. https://t.co/KNIuwncOol

Maksim Chmerkovksiy And Peta Murgatroyd Not Sure If They Are Coming Back For Dancing With The Stars Season 25

In a new interview with IB Times, Maksim Chmerkovksiy says he’s not sure if he and Peta Murgatroyd are coming back for Dancing With The Stars Season 25. It’s a “domestic issue” since they have a new baby now. Read below for more….

In an interview with International Business Times, Maks admitted he wasn’t entirely sure whether or not he’d come back for Season 25, because of his new commitments outside of the ABC show. He and wife Peta Murgatroyd, another pro dancer from the show, welcomed their son, Shai, together earlier this year, and he tells IBT that they need to see if they can both commit to the show and properly raising him at the same time.

“Before this was always a million-dollar question, ‘Will Maks return?'” Maks admitted to IBT. “But now it’s not, it’s more of a domestic issue. So, I figure things out on my behalf, and Peta has a team that she consults with, and so they figure out stuff as well. But we obviously prioritize Shai, and it’s important to both of us to make sure that our time with him is not is not being cut into. It’s one of my main things that I want to be around all the time, and I see all the things that happen.”

Even if he doesn’t return for a new season however, the LivOn spokesman and co-owner of “Dance With Me” Dance studios does still love teaching, and admits he gets a thrill out of that part of his job.

“I get off on educating literally basic dance, basic cha-cha, you know the fundamentals of movement and weight transfer, then taking it further to ‘What is dance?’ You know, what is different from one style to another?” Maks said. “The difference in fundamentals of Latin and Ballroom on that level, people may look at it and go ‘That’s boring.’ I can guarantee you that a lesson with me, it’s extremely exciting, and I’m sure that you walk away a more knowledgeable dancer than you came in, no matter what level you are.”

I bet they are both back. Maks is in prime shape and his injury from last season has healed too. We will see tomorrow on Good Morning America. More of this interview at IB Times.

Let’s Send A HUGE Congratulations To Our Two DWTS Couples!

Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy were married on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich were married on Saturday, July 8, 2017.

I had promised our sweet Vogue, who has been away from the computer for the whole weekend, that I would fill in for her, and post photos of both weddings. Instead, I ended up being VERY busy and away from the computer for a majority of the weekend because of some family obligations. I had been trying to keep up with things on my phone though…

I’m not going to post the photos, however, because I usually have a lot of trouble getting them to post, and it’s Vogue who puts any photo onto anything I’ve posted!  Instead click here to see Julianne and Brooks announcement from People and click here to see Peta and Maks announcement from People.

There’s been quite a bit said about the two weddings being on the same day, and even mentioned how unfair they were to not move their dates. The thing is, neither couple moves in the same circle, and I really don’t think that there was as much overlap in guest list as people are assuming. Other than the dates, and that 3 of them are employed by DWTS, I don’t think there was too much the same.

Both brides are breathtakingingly gorgeous! Both brides had gowns that fit them and their personalities. Both brides had a wedding that they’ll remember for the rest of their lives! Both grooms are head over heels for their bride, and vice versa.

Peta and Maks chose to get married in a huge wedding at Oheka Castle on Long Island, NY. Julianne and Brooks chose to get married in the middle of a field lakeside near Coeur D’Alene lake, Idaho.

Both are important events, and both deserve to be celebrated. I’m sure we’ll find photos to add at a later time, since one of the wedding parties chose to be a LOT more secretive about the entire wedding than the other.

Please post your congratulations below for our two happy couples!
