Dancing With The Stars Las Vegas Odds For September 5th (Changes From A Week Ago)

A week in rehearsals now, and the Dancing With The Stars Season 13 odds have changed a little from our last report. Elisabetta is still in the top spot, but, Hope Solo has jumped from fourth place to second place. Carson has dipped down from second place to fourth place. Ron and Chynna have fallen too. They still have Ricki placed low which shocks me as well. I think they underestimating David too who is still at 10/1 odds. Here is more from SportsBoDog. How they can figure these bets without seeing them dance yet is beyond me? 8O

Elisabetta Canalis 9/2

Hope Solo 5/1

Kristin Cavallari 11/2

Carson Kressley 7/1

Robert Kardashian 15/2

Chynna Phillips 8/1

David Arquette 10/1

J.R. Martinez 10/1

Ricki Lake 10/1

Ron Artest 10/1

Nancy Grace 18/1

Chaz Bono 20/1

DWTS Season 13 Stats – Pre Season Eliminations Predictions (Now With Pros!)

UPDATE: After a little more research, I will agree that Elisabetta’s primary occupation is as an actress as opposed to model… I have adjusted her ranks (with and without pro) to reflect this… note how this changes the other rankings as well.

YAY! Now we have the official celebrity/professional partner pairings. Let’s see how the ranks change now that we know how the pairings paired out. (Pun totally intended) If you need your memories refreshed, here is how the rankings panned out without knowing who would be paired up with whom.

NOTE: We have three new professional dancers this go around, so their placement value is based on all the past professional dancers that have only been on the show ONCE in the past twelve seasons (including Inna Brayer, Fabian Sanchez, Charlotte Jorgensen, Damian Whitewood, Brian Fortuna, etc). The placement value is separated between the male and female professional dance partners. As a whole the male professional partners that have been on the show once tend to do better than their female counterparts.

More after the break…

My life can be summed up in the following two quotes: 1) "I am married to engineering and am its faithful wife by day, but at night my wanderlust takes hold and the arts becomes my jealous paramour." and... 2) "Engineering is my safety net. Writing is my passion. Acting is my escape when the other two become too much." So where does dancing fit in? Pretty much anywhere at this point... =)

Peta Murgatroyd And Ron Artest Talk On Rehearsals, The Cha Cha Cha, The Moving Stage, And More!

Today TMZ interviewed Peta and Ron. Peta says they’ve had about three rehearsals so far and Ron is doing “very well”. She is very happy with his progress so far. They talk of their height differences for where she’s 5’7″ and Ron is 6’7″. She plans to wear 3″ heels for their dances. Currently, the two are working on the Cha Cha Cha for week 1 and the Quickstep for week 2. They discuss the new moving stage which Ron didn’t know about. The look on his face is a ‘look of fear’ while Peta calms him down (LOL, I think I would be scared of a moving stage too? 8O ). They also talk on the NBA lockout, but, Ron thinks it will all work out somehow where he can still dance if the lockout ends. It’s a super cute interview and one of Peta’s first interviews as a Pro teacher. I love how TMZ tagged them with the title “Beauty And The Peace”. So perfect. All this and more at the 29:02 minute mark >>>>HERE. Photo above from Peta’s twitter page.

Adding: You can also listen to them talking to ESPN radio in a new audio interview HERE as well.

DWTS 13 Ron Artest Talks Dancing For A Cause And Has Cha Cha Cha For His First Dance

The LA Times has a great article up talking about why Ron Artest decided to dance on Dancing With The Stars this season. For one thing he couldn’t say “no” to his daughter Diamond who was diagnosed with cancer when she was four. In honor of how she fought the illness, he plans to donate the money he earns on Dancing With The Stars to the Cancer Research Foundation. The take below also mentions how Ron didn’t want to dance at first and how he even wanted to be eliminated the first round. But, he has since changed his mind and is seeking advise from boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. More below and at the link. Note too how he mentions having the “Cha-Cha-Cha” as his first dance.

It wasn’t just a case of Artest being unable to say no to his daughter. At age 4 in 2007, Diamond was diagnosed with wilms tumor, Artest said, a kidney cancer that affects children. So in honor of his daughter successfully fighting the illness, Artest said he plans to donate the money he earns on “Dancing with the Stars” to the Cancer Research Foundation.

That will include the $125,000 Artest said he’s making for appearing on the show beginning Sept. 19 and any additional money he earns should he advance in each round.

“That’s the only reason I’m doing it,” Artest said. “I’m doing it for a cause.”

Artest’s decision to join the show deviates from comments he made last season and this off-season. In March, Artest said he’d want to lose in the first round because “I don’t want to put my hips in a situation where I’m looking like Rick Fox.” Only a month ago after a stand-up comedy appearance, Artest said, “I play defense. I don’t know if I dance.” And late Sunday evening his publicist, Courtney Barnes, appeared amused in a series of text messages when asked whether Artest would join the show. Said Barnes: “He can’t dance.”

That’s why Artest said he and his unnamed partner have begun taking lessons and he plans to consult boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., who lasted four rounds in 2007 during the show’s fifth season.

“I’m doing the Cha-cha-cha my first week,” Artest said. “We’re going to get past [the first round]. I want to work hard and see where it takes me. I don’t know how far I’m going to go, but I’m going to try.”

Paparazzi Videos Of Celebs And Pros Arriving For Dancing With The Stars Rehearsals And Launch Party

I don’t know about you, but, I always love watching the celebs and their pro partners arriving for rehearsals….especially at the beginning of the season. It’s interesting to see what their moods might be like and who will talk or acknowledge the paparazzi and who won’t. This was filmed yesterday!

And below is some paparazzi coverage of our celebs and pros going to the Launch Party Monday night. They are in fine form and really excited.
