Hey All! Kristyn Burtt revealed some Dancing With The Stars Season 18 scoop today at her Red Carpet Closet site. She posted an instagram talking of how the show almost paired Peta Muragtroyd and Charlie White up last year. Karina was suppose to be with James Maslow. Also, Sharna Burgess was suppose to be paired with Bruce Jenner originally (which makes me wonder about him possibly dancing in season 19?). Be sure you check out fun fun tidbits here. She cracks me up with the way she did the video too. lol Go Kristyn!!
People caught up with Dancing With The Stars Sharna Burgess at LadyLike Foundation’s 6th Annual Women of Excellence Scholarship Luncheon this past weekend. They asked her About Charlie White’s engagement to Tanith Belbin. Read on for an “awww” moment….
“They have such an amazing relationship … and he knew,” Burgess, 28, said. “In his heart, he knew that she was going to say yes, and he just wanted it to be perfect. He wanted it to be the perfect setting, the perfect ring, the perfect time.”
White managed to pull off his surprise proposal to Olympic silver medalist Belbin, but his former dancing partner came close to spilling the beans to the bride-to-be on more than one occasion.
“Every time I would see her, I would have this smile on my face that you can’t really explain because I knew what was going to happen and she didn’t. It was wonderful!” Burgess said.
So when ice dancer White finally posted the picture of the pair following their magical moment, Burgess couldn’t hold it in any longer.
“I jumped for joy even though I knew it was going to happen,” she said. “Just to see that photo come up on Instagram and know … they’re a match made in heaven.”

Dancing Pro Sharna Burgess Attends LadyLike Foundation’s 6th Annual Women of Excellence Scholarship Luncheon
Awww, doesn’t Sharna Burgess look lovely?! Yesterday, the Dancing With The Stars pro attended LadyLike Foundation’s 6th Annual Women of Excellence Scholarship Luncheon at the Luxe Hotel in Los Angeles, California. To view more fun photos, see Getty Images.
So you’ve seen the results for the best guest judge voting – now onto the results for the crappiest song of the season!!!
“All of Me” by John Legend (Meryl’s foxtrot) – 2
“Girl” by Pharrell (Amy & Mark’s salsa) – 1
“Can’t Remember to Forget You” by Shakira feat. Rihanna (Nene’s Argentine tango) – 1
“Dare You” by Hardwell (Amy’s freestyle) – 1
“Islands in the Stream” by Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers (James’ rumba) – 1
Votes omitted due to failure to follow the format – 2
Courtney: The two songs I thought would garner the most votes, did – and while “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” probably didn’t do Charlie any favors…it actually started to grow on me after a second viewing Maybe it was just the enthusiasm with which he attacked it, but he made the most of a crummy song. The same cannot be said for “I Luh Ya Papi” – which the two couples dancing to clearly disliked as much as we did. It drives me nuts when J. Lo does songs like these – they just make her sound downright unintelligent, and make it seem like she’s trying to remind everyone that she’s hip and has chola street cred because she talks like this. The song is bad, no doubt – but I also don’t think Val or Maks really put their all into choreographing that duel, and thus the end result was even more lackluster. I have to roll my eyes a bit at “I Wan’na Be Like You”, because I really only added that because I saw so many Meryl fans griping about how “terrible a samba song” it was. Boo hoo, poor Princess Meryl gets saddled with one mediocre individual song the entire season – go ask Charlie how it feels to get screwed over every other week, with “Sail”, “Mo’ Money, Mo Problems”, “Wildest Moments”, etc. And James has more to gripe about with that gadawful “Gasolina” than Meryl dancing to a song from The Jungle Book. As for the write-ins? Once again hard for me to say that Meryl got screwed with her foxtrot song, because even though it wasn’t really a foxtrot, it was still one of the top 10 songs in the country at the time and the shippers (and judges) ate it right up. And anyone wanna make a bet that whoever wrote in “Dare You” was an insecure Meryl fan?
Heidi: I ain’t takin’ that bet, Courtney. Same kinda idiot who haunts Amy’s instagram to scream “Meryl and Maks!!” on every single photo that Amy posts. :::rolls eyes::: Must protect Princess Meryl at all costs!! My nickname is an inside joke…wish I could say the same for Meryl’s. But no…the pedestal is still very, very high. Meryl overcame so many obstacles on her path to victory…horrendous song choices…mean judges picking on the stellar choreography…oh, wait. ANYway, JLo was getting a lot of crap on the radio this morning for pretending to be “Jennie from the block” while staying in Manhattan. Apparently she gave 25k tickets to people in Brooklyn for her concert and half of them didn’t show up? With songs like “I luh Ya Papi” can anyone really blame them?? Yes, the song was bad (it got my vote)…but the choreographers did not help at ALL. Lord what a whimpy assed dance. The difference between “Mo Money, Mo Problems” and the “I Wan’na Be Like You” is also totally in the choreographer, IMO. Neither song is a REALLY terrible song choice (but Charlie definitely got the short end of the stick in this instance), but Sharna made the best of it while Maks couldn’t get past it. I can’t help thinking that if Derek or Mark had been handed Maks’ samba song (or JLo’s song), we would have seen some pretty creative choreography. Ah well.
Vogue: It’s so funny as when I first heard Charlie had “Sail” for a Paso Doble, I didn’t think it would work, but, it actually didn’t bother me. Give it up to Charlie and Sharna making the best of it….again as they did through out the season. Another song that just annoys me to no end anyway is “I Love Ya Pai”. I cringed through out Danica and Meryl’s Samba duel with that song. However, another song I didn’t like was “I Wanna Be Like You” for Meryl’s Samba. Awful song with a lack luster dance too. In the end, I voted for “I Wanna Be Like You” for the worst song.
How beautiful is this??! Last night, Dancing With The Stars Sharna Burgess attended the opening night of ‘Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, California. So pretty!! You can view more photos of her at Getty Images.
