Cheryl Burke Interviewed On New Dance With Antonio Sabato Jr., Her Possible Last Season On DWTS

In a new interview with TV Guide, Cheryl Burke talks about whether she’s coming back to Dancing With The Stars. Right now, “it’s still up in the air”.

As of now, it’s still up in the air if I’m coming back or not. Contractually, my contract is over and there’s other opportunities that have been out there for me,” Burke, who has been on the show consecutively since Season 2, tells TVGuide.com. “Will it most likely be my last season? I would have to say yes.”

She continues: “It’s so hard for me to talk about this, because I owe my life to Dancing with the Stars. They’ve changed my life completely. They’re my family and it’s always hard to say goodbye … to a bunch of people that really believed in me from the start, and continued to believe in me for the last 10 years.”

You can also read on a sneak peek of Cheryl and Antonio Sabato Jr.’s dance tomorrow night. I hope we see even more improvement from last week.

What are you guys working on for Monday?
Burke: Monday is Latin night, so we have salsa. We’re trying to incorporate other dances. We’re trying to loosen him up a little bit. Pitbull is judging, so we want to make sure Pitbull appreciates what we’ve done. We’re trying to make it sexy. We’re trying to have that same chemistry that we always have on the dance floor. … It’s Week 6 and everyone is tired, but now you have to be able to really mentally stay strong. This competition is like Survivor, but for dancing. It’s like, how can you get through this? And having the switch-up and coming back to each other, I think we’re starting to really appreciate the way we work.

More at TV Guide including Cheryl’s thoughts on last week’s dance, the judges, and more. Also, check out the Daily Mail for some new pics of Cheryl at Mario Lopez’ birthday party.

Dancing with the Stars Season 19 – “What do you mean I’m a ringer??” Update

Introduction

A couple of seasons ago, I created a set of criteria with which to measure the benefits some dancers on DWTS have compared to the other dancers. That is, ringers versus non-ringers. I attempted to be as logical and scientific as possible, although it’s impossible to remove all subjectivity from the issue. But it’s far better than simply saying “so and so isn’t a ringer, IMO”. In your opinion? If your opinion is purely subjective with no effort at logical or rational thought, then what good is it??

No good at all, actually. The original series sprung from an effort to debunk the old, tired and stupid claim that the only reason Derek does well is because he gets all the good partners and no one else gets them. Utter BS, of course. It would be a good idea to read that series before starting this one as I can’t guarantee that I’ll include all the same rationale this second time around and I don’t take well to discussing a subject with someone who is so rude as to not read the blogs.

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. :-)

GMA Coverage Of DWTS Eliminated Couples, Judges Name Next Week’s Guest Judge

Lot’s of fun coverage today of the eliminated couples on Good Morning America thanks to the Vocal Vault, Karina, and @GMA. Plus, the judges announced Robin Roberts will be the celebrity guest judge on Dancing With The Stars next week (Awww, I love her). Note too how they said there will be a guest judge every week from next week forward (wow, ok, but, isn’t that a little much?) Also, note how Sean remarked in his interview that he and the producer had a disagreement which he thinks sealed his fate, but, I don’t think that had anything to do with him being eliminated, do you? I think his fan base was too small compared to Billy Dee’s (who I think should have left before Sean)? Let us know what you think. Below is more in detail…

ETA: Ricky Martin and Redfoo from the band LMFAO will also be judging in the next weeks as well as Mario Lopez and Julianne Hough as previously reported.

DWTS 15 – All Star Cast Announcement (Live Blog)

Another season, another cast…oh wait. Another season, with an old cast, of sorts. :-)  I am actually excited – didn’t think it was going to happen.  I imagine the screaming will start shortly, however.

Anyway, tune in here at 10:30 pacific (1:30 eastern time) we’ll be updating as fast as we can and, of course, snarking as hard as we can. We will get snark out of Vogue if it’s the last thing we do. ;-)  Come on, Vogue, you can do it!! :-)  If you want to see the announcement as it happens, I think you need to watch ABC.com

@ABCPublicity says on Twitter (will update if official page is different):

ETA 1:  The general media is reporting this cast – let me know if I made any errors.  They announced early and I was caught off guard. :-)

ETA 2: After a moment to catch my breath…I’m digging this cast, with the huge exception of Bristol.  And many people are going to have new partners, so they better ALL have new partners. If they stack it in Cheryl or Mark’s favor by giving them Gilles and Shawn, respectively?? I’ll be kinda pissed. Give Cheryl Drew since he’s been away for a while and put Mark back with Bristol.  That said…can Shawn or Gilles win against the likes of Helio or Apolo?? I doubt it. Even without Julianne, those are two very likable dudes.
