Dancing with the Stars Season 23 – PRO WATCH!!

Welp. I must say, my snark is extremely rusty because it’s been on vacation. πŸ™‚ I’ll see if I can whip something out before the end of this post.

So, you may have seen in an earlier post that Val blessed us with several nuggets that only a C-bro can knock out, strongly implying (well, out right proclaiming) that he’s already connected with his partner. Hey, if you don’t have choreo, you work with what you have. πŸ˜‰ Plus he’s not going to go “Hollywood” (like his brother and everyone else on this show – as if it were a bad thing – it’s called a CAREER after dancing).

I am working on the assumption (despite what he says) that Derek is out for good. I think the only way we see him again is if he gets an unexpected hole in his schedule and he’s afraid of boredom and they offer him a shit ton of money. And this *could* happen, although I wouldn’t count on it, since he was talking about “fun projects” in his off time. That said, “Singin’ in the Rain” has been delayed from late 2016 – early 2017 to solidly 2017. No date yet…because they don’t have a theater, because Broadway is doing well per Derek. This means, if we don’t see him in the Spring 2017 season, he won’t be on the show until 2018 at the earliest. Keep in mind, also, that I’m talking about him competing. He could certainly do some pro dances. Kinda surprised he hasn’t popped up on SYTYCD yet, honestly. Non-compete clause?? …Read more

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 22 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year again and who knows what kind of funky will go down this season. Will Derek finally hang up his DWTS shoes? Will Artem get hosed again in favor of the ever annoying Val? Will Sasha finally get his chance? Will Sharna continue to follow in the wrong footsteps, making unwise statements? Who will take Allison’s spot? These questions and more will hopefully be answered soon. πŸ™‚

I don’t want to hear about Jenna being dance captain. I think that is likely decided among the dancers themselves and I doubt it has any significance in regard to the show – maybe she’ll be a pro, maybe she won’t. Derek and Julianne’s dance captain was someone you’ve likely never heard of. So what?

Kristyn Burtt claims that the pros have been told rehearsals start on February 22 – it remains to be seen if that is true or if it actually happens. Last season was so…fluid…that we’ll have to wait and see. I do think we’ll start to hear stuff from those with a lack of ability to keep their mouths shut. πŸ™‚ There are some Derek fans that worry his media sweep happening next week will include an announcement about his status. The media sweep is because of Disneyland 60 – if an announcement happens, it will likely be that he’s out. If he says nothing or hems and haws, it might be that he’s in. He’s a tough call, as usual Read more..

Some Details Revealed On DWTS Maksim Chmerkovskiy And Peta Murgatroyd’s Wedding

If you’d like to know some details about Maks Chmerkovskiy And Peta Murgatroyd’s wedding, be sure to pick up the new issue of In Touch Weekly. They talk of wanting a big wedding, who will be in the Bridal party, and more. Below is a teaser from the link.

I want it to be a million dollar wedding! She wants a princess thing with the horse and carriage and I want to give that to her,” Maksim says.

β€œI love doing this type of thing,” Peta explains. β€œIt’s going to be massive, probably 500 people, somewhere in New York. Our families will fly over for it.”

Peta adds, of those 500 guests, she wants her Dancing With the Stars family to be included.

β€œSharna Burgess will definitely be in the bridal party, and I would love to have [my 2012 DWTS partner and season winner] Donald Driver and his family there, and Gilles Marini and Tommy Chong.”

β€œIt would be awesome to have my brother [DWTS’ Val Chmerkovskiy] be the best man and give me away to her, like β€” he’s your problem now!” Maksim adds.

Another big question is what kind of gown will the bride wear?

β€œI just want it to be a really classic wedding dress that would never go out of style,” Peta explains. β€œI love Vera Wang and Monique Lhuillier.”
