Shay Mitchell Redux – DWTS Season 20 Just Talk or Rumor?

ETA: In my haste to post this before going to bed, I quoted the much more inflammatory Enstarz instead of the original article from the Examiner. In my wide awake mind, I usually know better than to go with the latter, instead of the former. :-) Anyway, as you see from the original article, it’s clearly just talk and Enstarz was blowing it up.

Sounds to me like “just talk” about possibly doing it in the future – her fans make it a thousand times worse by taking every casual comment as an affirmation (perhaps they don’t read past the title or first sentence). But, since it’s that time of year, I figured I would post it and say “I don’t think so, but anything is possible” for this season. And also point out that Vogue had the lead on this one more than two months ago, thanks to one of our awesome readers. :-) From The Examiner:

Speaking of competitiveness, your “Pretty Little Liars” co-star Janel [Parrish] did pretty well on “Dancing with the Stars” last year. Would you ever want to do that?

Mitchell: You know, I do love dancing and I do love watching “Dancing with the Stars.” If that were to ever come up, who knows? You never know. Right now, I’m loving watching it on TV and Janel did a great job.

She did. She was fabulous.

Mitchell: They were amazing.

Who would you pick, of all of the male pros, if you could pick one as your partner?

Mitchell: I’d probably go with Val [Chmerkovskiy, who was also Parrish’s partner]. He’s a good friend of mine. I’d team up with Val and we’d bring home the trophy [laughs].

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. :-)

Janel Parrish’s First Dance On DWTS An Ode To Pretty Little Liars

Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy are doing a Jive for their first dance on Dancing With The Stars. Also, it will be an “ode to Pretty Little Liars”. Here is more from People

I started dancing when I was 6 and was in and out of dance classes my whole life, but never anything with partnering and never any ballroom – so really never anything that’s going to help with this.

We are doing the jive this week, and my body’s kind of working against everything that I learned in my dance classes. Everything that my instincts want to do is not correct for the jive. Eventually, I think my instincts will be correct with certain dances.

My first dance contains an ode to Pretty Little Liars. If I get it right, which I think I will because Val’s going to whip me into shape, it’s going to be explosive.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS18 Watchout: “Pretty Little Liars” Shay Mitchell?

Steph, one of our readers, sent us some news about Val Chmerkovksiy that sounded interesting and something we may need to keep a watch on. Is it possible he is trying to recruit Shay Mitchell of “Pretty Little Liars” or could something be in the works for her to dance? We’ll let you read on further for what she sent us.

He did a twitter Q&A on Friday and someone asked his ideal partner, and Val being Val was of course a little cheeky about it and said: “She pretty, little, and don’t tell the truth ;)” AKA Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars. Backtracking slightly, he tweeted to Shay a few weeks ago “It’s already choreographed”. He wasn’t responding to her and she never replied so there is really no context for what his tweet meant. I know he started following her on Twitter after she came to see Brant perform though.

From her side, she posted on IG after her season wrapped that she had something new in the works she was excited about and the comments were all about her doing DWTS. Shortly after she took it down from IG.

It could be nothing, it could be Val trying to recruit her, it could be Val has a celeb crush (lol), but still, just wanted to let you know to be on the lookout. I honestly don’t think she would be able to do it with her shooting schedule but who knows.

THANKS Steph and good eye!!x
