Why do all the blogs come out on the same day? They’re less likely to get covered here when they do that – there’s only so much we can take. 😉 Nick talks the foxtrot, Maks and Peta…check out People.com or the Video below.
Actually, William Shatner made it fairly clear why he’s not a Nick fan in his usual Bill Shatner kind of way. That said, I find Nick to be funny and endearing – and any of the guys who can give serious competition to the female ringers get my vote. 🙂 Check out Peta’s whole blog on People.com – it’s a good one! Good job, “Pete”. 😀
William Shatner has been very vocal about not liking Nick and I just think that’s funny. I have no idea what Shatner has against Nick, but he is one of my fans. That’s why I wrote to him that I am going to get him to love Nick at the end of the day.
I just want everyone to get along and see a new side of Nick. On the reality shows he was sometimes cast as the villain, but what I’ve seen of him, he’s just the biggest joker and we have so much fun. I love that people are noticing that.
But it’s also hard work. He’s exhausted. Everything hurts right now, which is completely normal. He’s learning something so new to him and he’s giving it his best shot.
He is such a hard worker. He doesn’t stop! He doesn’t take breaks! I have to take breaks and have water and rest my legs. I’m still trying to get back to my normal level after my pregnancy. But he’s just, like, “Let’s go Pete! Let’s go. Let’s go again.” I’ll be sitting there resting and he’ll be keeping going.
ET Online caught up with Rashad Jennings to ask him about week 2 of Dancing With The Stars. He gives some fun teasers on tonight’s dance with Emma Slater.
“I do have some of my friends coming into town for the show. We’ll prob go grab some sushi, my go-to thing, and then go to this vegan ice cream spot that I just die for, but I’m going to get some rest because I want to be on point for the dance,” Rashad shared. “The judges can give me a birthday gift by giving me a good score. And the people can give me a good gift by voting for me. That’ll be my gift!”
He also gave ET a few details on what to expect from he and his partner, Emma Slater. The two will be dancing the Viennese Waltz to “Suffer” by Charlie Puth, and Rashad says he’s planning to break out his poetry skills — a hobby he picked up during one of his off-seasons — to add a fun element that the show has never seen before.
“I do poetry. My hashtag is #ShadThePoet … so anything with a hashtag that has [my nickname] ‘Shad’ in front of it, it’s a way for people to get to know me personally, outside of being a football player,” he explained. “I take 10 seconds of a song, and in front of it, I put 10 seconds of poetry. So I lead people with my poetry into how I want the music to move them.”
“This week Emma was like, ‘You have a soothing voice when you do that. I want you to narrate the audience, the crowd, everyone [watching] TV into this song.’ So the room is going to be dark, I’m going to be speaking,” he teased. “It’s going to be unique, and hasn’t been done on the show yet. I think this may be one of my favorite dances to do, just because of the song.”
ET also talked with Sharna burgess and Bonner Bolton as well….
“He’s doing very well,” added Sharna, who confirmed that despite reports, she and Bonner are not dating. “Like he said, he connects to this one because of that Texas two-step dance that he’s used to.”
“He’s used to taking a woman’s hand and leading her around a dance floor, which is super rare these days, a man that has the confidence to do that, so it’s actually really fitting in his world,” she continued. “He’s connecting with the steps. We haven’t quite got to putting the romance and the character in there yet, but we’re going to get it.”
So what type of romantic is Bonner in real life? “I’ve tried to keep it genuine and unique, but I used to take girls out on the ranch and show them a good sunset out on the West Texas desert, show them the stars at night,” he gushed. “A little wine and dine.”
More at ET Online in what to expect for tonight with some of the other couples too.

Well, here I am again. Can’t say I’m overly excited about the show this season – silly fangirls, judges acting stupid, the producers using Julianne as a Heather apologist…all very annoying.
But there were a few actual bright spots. I loved David and Rashad, I thought Nick was funny and I liked that he wasn’t afraid to call a ringer BS. Love Simone, but I’m hoping that Sasha doesn’t play it too safe in the coming weeks. I’ve seen a lot of criticism of their Tango, but I have to say…I think it was the music. That music was crap. Just ONCE this season I would love to see an actual TANGO. Think Alexa and Derek – that kicked ASS. Hell, just about any Tango he’s ever done. He generally goes more traditional in the tango steps and music (when he has a choice) and I think the white flowery dress and the light, not-very-tango-y music of Simone and Sasha just ruins it for me. You can see the difference if you watch many of Derek’s – dark and intense. …Read more
Extra went inside Nick Viall And Peta Murgatroyd’s rehearsals for dancing With The Stars Week 2. Peta is going make William Shatner love Nick Viall and if anyone can, it’s Peta. Here is more on how they are preparing for their Foxtrot.
ETA: Some new reports with William Shatner and how he feels for Nick….
I always enjoy Wendy Williams And Jimmy Kimmel’s thoughts and predictions on Dancing With The Stars every season. I won’t spoil this for you. Be sure to listen when you get a chance and let us know what you think.
Got Pap caught up with Witney Carson, Tom Bergeron, Nick Viall, and Nancy Kerrigan to ask them about Dancing With The Stars after they danced Monday night. It’s fun to see how excited they all are.
DWTS 24 Erika Jayne Talks On Dancing And The Real Housewives On “Watch What Happens Live” – Highlights, Photos
The Daily Mail has some gorgeous photos of Erika Jayne on “Watch What Happens Live” yesterday. They also interviewed her on Dancing With The Stars and The Real Housewives and the differences in doing them. More below and at the link.
‘You look like you’ve lost weight that you didn’t need to lose from Dancing With The Stars,’ Andy told Erika, who paired her blouse with black pants and high heels.
‘Well, I am smaller. So it’s a great side effect of the job, so thank you,’ Erika smiled happily, later joking that while she ‘lost weight’ on the dance show ‘I beef up during Housewives.’
Asked which show was harder, she called them ‘two completely different exhaustive processes,’ and laughed: ‘Dancing With The Stars is physical pain — Real Housewives is mental pain!’
Asked about her first night dancing, she said: ‘I mean … it’s OK.’
And as for the judges’ harsh scores of 24 points out of 40 for her — insisting she does not think she was ‘robbed’ — she said: ‘That’s OK too. You have to remember it’s your first time out there. It’s week one.’
She was pleased when host Andy, 48, told her he did not think she was too raunchy in her performance, while one male caller also told her: ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it — raunch it, baby!’
