DWTS Peta Murgatroyd And Maks Chmerkovksiy Wedding Workout On GMA

Dancing With The Stars Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovksiy did a workout segment on Good Morning America today with baby Shai. So cute. They also talk on their wedding a little. I can’t wait to see Peta’s wedding dress as I always love her style.

DWTS Peta Murgatroyd And Maks Chmerkovksiy Wedding Update!

Dancing With The Stars Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovksiy’s wedding is coming up fast now. They talk all about it with E Online in a video interview below. Also, Peta’s trainer takes us through her wedding workout at this link. Here’s a little take….

So what does it take to look as fab as this bride-to-be only five months after giving birth? Well, E! News caught up with Peta’s trainer Tim Hartwig, a strength and conditioning coach who works primarily with athletes in Los Angeles. Hartwig says he’s prepping Peta with the same techniques clients like Rashad Jennings use before football season starts, and it’s nothing short of intense.

Seven weeks before becoming a Mrs., Peta began working out three days a week with Hartwig and two days a week on her own. Tim says the Australian stunner’s goal is to “maximize fat loss” and achieve a “nice, lean look” through a mix of healthy nutrition and fitness. That involves teaching Murgatroyd “how to balance her diet” with increased water and protein intake as well as introducing healthy carbs like brown rice, quinoa and sweet potatoes into her meals.

DWTS Peta Murgatroyd, Maks Chmerkovksiy, Julianne Hough, Brooks Laich Wedding Dates And Details

We finally have some wedding dates for Peta Murgatroyd & Maks Chmerkovksiy’ and Julianne Hough & Brooks Laich. And guess what? They are on the same day. From Life & Style Magazine

Peta exclusively tells Life & Style that their wedding celebration will be July 7, 8 and 9. “It’s a big three days. I’m super excited about it,” says Peta, noting the wedding itself is July 8, which is the same day DWTS judge Julianne chose to get hitched.

Julianne set her date first, but Peta, 30, and Maks, 37, didn’t know about it. “It just so happened that Peta and Maks chose the same date,” the source continues.

The conflict is forcing co-stars and the DWTS crew to choose between weddings. “You have to be either Team Hough or Team Peta and Maks,” the source notes. “There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes drama.”

Though Julianne hasn’t publicly revealed where she’ll swap vows, she’s blogged that “a destination wedding would make sense,” pondering a vineyard, ranch or tropical island, making it impossible for guests to attend both.

Sad how those attending will have to choose, but, I bet both weddings will be spectacular. More at Life & Style Magazine. Thanks to Lori for the find.

PureDWTS Season 24: Why Normani Didn’t Win

So, to say that the four days following the announcement of the winner of season 24 of DWTS have been “interesting”, would be an understatement 😛 I’ve seen mainly rejoicing, but also some general rage from the Harmonizers, who simply can’t fathom how Normani came in 3rd place and insist that the show must be rigged/racist/sexist/capitalist/whatever-ist because she didn’t win. While this is unfortunately the type of behavior many of us have come to expect from that particular group of fans, there have been a few fans that have sincerely expressed a desire to know why I think Normani didn’t win.  So here is my sincere response – if you are genuinely puzzled as to how it happened, this is my personal opinion, backed up with some numbers and some general observations about voting behavior. Very little of this actually has anything to do with Normani herself – most of these are factors that were out of her control, out of her fans’ control, and weren’t really things that anyone (other than maybe the executive producers) could have done anything to fix. I think Normani herself was just kind of a victim of circumstance this season – just not destined to win, for whatever reason. So the cries of “You’re just being mean to Normani!!!”? Keep ’em to yourself or GTFO.

So if you are genuinely interested, read on – and if you can remain civil and level-headed, feel free to comment or ask questions. But if you’re just here to complain about us or just generally be obnoxious, I will delete comments and permanently blacklist posters without a second thought – I’ve never witnessed the same level of vitriol from some fanbases as I saw this season.  I have no time for it.

DWTS Season 24, THE FINALE – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Okay, REMEMBER THE RULES of show night. DO NOT constantly hit refresh. DO NOT post one line comments.  Save your comments until you have a few that you can put into one post. Please include context so people who the hell you’re talking about. Comment moderation is still turned on, so content refreshing won’t get you anywhere.

Also, according to George P. Emma and Rashad are doing Cha Cha/Tango for their fusion and the dance order is the same as it was last night.

Opening was kind of a non-event. Love the little “journey” package they did for David.  Looking forward to Rashad’s. Interesting they show a clip of Normani and it’s a high kick.  I wonder…. 😉

Damn, don’t like when they mess with the order like that and put Rashad’s package second. Makes me uneasy.

So, Rashad beat the other two contestants by 100 HOURS in rehearsal.  If he doesn’t win, I’ll be pissed.

So shocking that Heather can holder her own with the professional girls.  Heh.  Is this the dance choreod by Witney?? Better than what Mandy normally comes up with.  Hah. Thanks Tom.

Not impressed with Hailie Steinfeld – feel like I’m looking at Val’s next partner in her first ballroom getup.

Spare me, Val. Normani would absolutely make the cut as one of the best ever…if paired with Derek or Mark.

I see we’re back to featuring Maks. Ya know, this show survived quite well without him for a few weeks. Witney did better with the women than the men did. It was all right, but not fabulous.

Don’t like how they have this staged – starting to feel like a Normani edit. I will be so pissed and over this show. The press is resurrecting all their Normani articles – whether that’s at the request of DWTS PR or at their own thoughts on who’s going to win.

Loved the huge dance number and how it traveled all over. Peta is wearing more fabric than all her last season’s costumes put together. Girl, you look fab. Then I saw Hayley and her killer bod and I commiserated with her.

Good Lord, there’s still an hour and a half. I don’ think I’m going to make it.

Nancy is such a classy lady.  And a damn fine dancer too.  She could have won on another season.  She made me appreciate Artem too.

I love guys who can play up the whole bromance thing.  This is one of the reasons I loved Nick this season – he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Nice, dry sense of humor.  I should say that this is also why I prefer Maks over Val – Maks seems more genuine when screwing around like this.

Peta looks stunning in red with a red lip. Stunning. And Nick ain’t so bad either.

Was this Magic Mike number more OTT than it was last time? LOL.

I do love bloopers.  😀

Whoa, severe flashback to Derek and Chelsea – same song, similar outfits, similar dance moves.  Very similar. Wow.

Damn, they’re still doing the Normani wins edit. Shit.

Damn #2 – Derek was on the Voice tonight and I missed it cuz this crap.

Best thing about that dance was Len and Bruno doing their thang. 😀

My god, will this show ever end? This is ungodly painful. I could be reading. Or sleeping, since I’m still coughing.

Okay, that Mr. T bit was cheesy brilliance. 🙂 Love that Mr. T.

Nicole Scherzinger – legit one of the best women to dance on this show.

BTW, Dirty Dancing is getting seriously bad reviews and it’s in large part due to this dude who is NOT a good dancer. He even makes Nicole look a bit awkward.

David and Lindsay do a Foxtrot/Salsa fusion…finally…and it’s not too bad actually. Love David so much – their package was just great. Probably the hardest fusion we’re going to see tonight, I think.

AT/Foxtrot fusion for Normani and Val. Since Val isn’t any better at Fusion than he is freestyle, this should be interesting.

CAI telegraphing a Normani win with her comments.  Of course she can pick it up fast, Julianne, she’s trained. YOU can pick it up that quick too, right??

God, get the mic away from Val. So pompous and smug.

QUIT HITTING REFRESH!! Already having trouble with the site. And that makes me cranky.

Great fusion from Rashad and Emma – very fun like they are. Think Emma made her point to the producers clearly enough?? Straight at the camera – I don’t know if I will ever get this again. Yeah, no kidding.

CAI telegraphing now that Normani and Rashad may be a toss up. Shit, Len is not going with 10s. Unusual – either he’s lost by a lot or he’s won by enough that Len isn’t afraid of changing the outcome.

THIRD PLACE – Normani and Val.  So much for those 500k votes.  Thank you baby jesus. Now, I would really want Rashad to win, but damn, David – nothing would shout louder to the producers to keep their mitts off the damn show.

Winners – RASHAD and Emma!!!

 

Why are they going outside? Fucking stupid way to handle this. Let the have their camera time and celebrate. Hey, Val and Maks aren’t crying in a corner?? That’s a positive development!! Personal growth!!

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. :-)

Normani Kordei Twists Ankle While In Rehearsals For Dancing With The Stars Finale

Apparently, Normani Kordei twisted her ankle in rehearsals for the finals on Dancing With The Stars. TMZ is reporting that she’ll still be able to compete, but, the split jump she was rehearsing for is likely scratched from the routine.

ETA: For those interested….

DWTS Season 24, Week 8 – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

I’m back from NYC and oh, it was so good.  I highly recommend the show Waitress – hilarious and amazing. Derek is still rooting for Rashad.  Asked about Nastia being on tour Julianne made the mistake of saying she couldn’t give them (Derek and Nastia) a 10 in week 3, even though the dance was an 11 – to which the M&G audience booed. And then Derek smiled and said, “Thank you.” I know what it was – he was asked about if he ever got mad at her judging and he said one time – I believe it was Nastia’s tango. 🙂

Anyway…Derek in DA HOUSE. 🙂  Also, we’ve turned on comment moderation. You remember the rules. No one liners, and we need content. Refer to people by NAME.

There’s actual dancing in the opening dance!  A step in the right direction. 🙂

Rashad’s up first. Wonder how bad he’ll get screwed to advance an agenda tonight? Or will they finally lay off?

Pretty good jive. No mistakes that I saw, solid dancing.  That move at the end that looked like Derek’s crotch jump was cool.

I think Len’s foot work call is pretty BS. Read more..
