It’s a Dancing With The Stars holiday and PureDWTS reader Lois puts it’s all into perspective with this fun ditty for the premiere tonight…
THE DANCING WITH THE STARS TRAIN!
All aboard! The train is leaving the station
Chug, chugging along to its final destination
The All Stars are in their Sunday finery best
Who of the thirteen will pass the final test
Along for the ride Bruno, Carrie Ann, and Len
When will they raise the paddle of the first ten
The ballroom is cheering, the train is inside
The shimmery, sparkly show opens with pride
Our eyes wide at precisely the hour of 8 o’clock
We get into the dancing mode, oh it will rock
Emmy winner Tom Bergeron says for all to hear
This is Dancing With The Stars, it is finally here
Brooke Burke takes her place with her co host
Congratulations Tom, well deserved, we boast
The All Stars ascend, to thunderous loud cheers
All thirteen trying to shake off nerves and fears
Their heels, dancing shoes, steps to the beat
Oh we are in for a dazzling, raz-ma-taz treat!
The train pulls out, in salute the whistles blow
It is Dancing With the Stars, its on with the show!

DANCING WITH THE STARS ALL STARS IS FINALLY HERE!
WITH GUSTO, WE STAND UP, WE GIVE A ROUSING CHEER!
Thanks Lois! Well said! And with that said, Dancettes, below is Pamela Anderson on The Ellen Show today prepping us even more for tonight. She says Tristan sweats in a heart shape. LOL So cute!
Also, below is a bite from Nightline where host Tom Beregeon talks about Pamela.
“DWTS” host Tom Bergeron told “Nightline” that he recently asked the former “Baywatch” babe about her celibacy vow, which she made last month.
“I guess she thought it would give her a competitive edge,” Bergeron said. “And so I happened to see her yesterday in the hall and I mentioned to her that I had been asked about her vow of celibacy and over her shoulder, with her back to me, she went, ‘I’m already off the wagon.’”
A few weeks before the “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” premiere, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, the 45-year-old Anderson told People magazine that she had “sworn off men until November,” when the competition ends.
Anderson was eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars,” Season 10, in May 2010 and returns tonight for the show’s 15th season, alongside Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, Bristol Palin and Emmitt Smith, among others.
“We’ve got everybody on the show who’s been here before, many of whom have won it before, I’m really excited about it,” Bergeron said. “I do think that each of them knows that this particular Mirror Ball trophy, however kitschy it might be, there’s a certain status among fans of the show for coming into a season of all stars and walking away with that one.”
NOTE: Tune into “Nightline” tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET as ABC’s David Wright sits down with Tom Bergeron and members of the cast to talk about the show behind the scenes. HERE is a preview you don’t want to miss.
Apparently, Stevie Wonder was a guest on The Ellen Show today! The Detroit News is reporting that Ellen asked him if he was going to be a contestant on Dancing With The Stars. Below is how he replied…
“When I lose weight and get to where I want to be, we’ll do it”
Wow, wouldn’t this be awesome? Bring it, Stevie!!
ADDING: Below is Stevie’s performance and interview with Ellen today….
This isn’t the full interview, but, you can see part of Hope and Maks’ interview with Ellen yesterday below. They talk of the pressure and learning to dance when you are a “tomboy at heart”. If someone knows where we can get the full interview, please let us know. Thanks!!
Adding: Here is the full interview! Thanks to @DWTSMaksimFans at twitter for sending!!!xxx
In a new interview with TV Guide, Derek Hough says the scores were close last week and “it’s going to be a very competitive season”. They ask him how this week’s rumba is going which you can read on below (I love that he choreographs the beginning of a routine last. Whatever you are doing, Derek, don’t stop doing it!). To read on the comparisons between Ricki and Kirstie Alley, Derek and Ricki’s biggest competition, and what they are doing to improve themselves, and more, be sure to visit the link.
How’s the rumba going?
Hough: Great! I tend to choreograph the beginning last. I don’t know why I do that. I leave the first 20 seconds open and go back to it last, but on the first day, I had the other three-quarters done and she picked it up really quickly. That pleasantly surprised me.
You have to tell a story this week. What’s Ricki’s?
Hough: What I really like about her story is that it’s about triumph, which is what I think we all want. She was saying that this past year, she wasn’t fully allowing herself to be happy or to be open to love again. So, the fact that she’s able to open up again and to be happy was a huge triumph for her. It’s kind of fantastic that it’s happening now and I’m kind of part of it in the present. I think there’ll be some pretty heavy and dramatic stories this week. Hers is happy. I think it’s really sweet.
Note: Derek and Ricki will be guests on The Ellen Show on THURSDAY! So, be sure to tune in. According to Ellen’s site, they are going to dance.
Ellen Degeneres chatted with Val and Elisabetta today on her show. They start the interview talking about Elisabetta’s shoulder injury and how nervous she is for Monday night since their scores weren’t that good the first week. Ellen asks if she’s pressured more to dance because of the George Clooney break up. Val lighten’s the moment by saying HE is feeling pressured instead. LOL Here’s a clip. Stay tuned as we hope to have more footage of this interview soon.
David was a guest on The Ellen Show today to talk about Dancing With The Stars!! He said he’s “exhausted” when Ellen asks him how he is doing so far. When asked why he did Dancing With The Stars, David says,…
I did it because I love dancing. It’s part of joy. It’s weird. A lot of the themes that are involved with dancing are involved with sort of my way of life now. Balance, staying connected to your core, being in touch with everything around you, the flow of life. And that’s what it’s sort of about for me. It also gave me an opportunity for people to get to know me. Because they may have preconceived notions of who I am. Just to be out there and have fun and entertain people because I’m an entertainer.
Ellen also gives David some fashion pointers for the show. Check out the outfit she came up for him. Too funny!
ADDING: Be sure to see this video too where he dreams of the Mirror Ball.
Pure DWTS Season 12 – Maksim Chmerkovskiy And Kirstie Alley Having Fun And That’s All The Matters (Videos of Interviews)
OMGGGG! LOOK AT KIRSTIE ON THE ELLEN SHOW! *raves* Is she not slimming down more and more by the DAY??!!! Seriously!!! Like Ellen said, Kirstie looks happy and she is having “fun” too. They also get serious about when Kirstie’s heart was broken. They get funny about having sex 2 hours a day (LOL) and more. See Maks too. They are so addictive as always and Ellen gives them a present too that you have to see. Great interview!!
Also, see Maks interviewed on KTLA as well. He talks about his experience on 9-11 (everytime I hear him talk on this, I am silenced. I just can’t imagine it. He clearly loves this Country.). He also talks of Kirstie and Dancing With The Stars. He critiques their dance from this week. It’s so cute because he loves that Kirstie is having so much even if she missed the steps.
Set your DVRs Dancing With The Stars fans! Maks and Kirstie are to be Ellen Degeneres’ guests on her show next Thursday, May 5th. Can you imagine these two funny ladies together in one room with Maks? Should be something to remember. From Ellen’s official site;
Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Thursday, May 5, 2011
This season of “Dancing with the Stars” has been full of ups and down for KIRSTIE ALLEY! She’s gone from impressing the judges with her outstanding moves, to literally falling down! Today she and her partner, MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY, are here to tell Ellen how they feel about the rest of the competition — before they hit the dance floor!
