Hey, just a shortie! Did any of you see Dancing With The Stars Tony Dovolani on “The Exes” last night? If so, how was he? If you head to Zap2It, you can view some stills from the show of he and former Dancing With The Stars partner Leah Remini. I’m loving some of their poses….well, and her shoes especially!!!
This is such a cool, inspirational story. Dancing With The Stars Tony Dovolani granted a wish through the “Make A Wish” Foundation to cancer victim Isabella Corcelli who loves ballroom dancing and Dancing With The Stars. Below is take of her story. Be sure to see Providence Journal for more including new pictures of she and Tony dancing. Thanks to @adwtsfan for the heads up.
To get in shape, she began working out at the college gym (even though, she says, “I’d rather play sports than go to the gym …”) and started running again.
“She’s getting her mojo back,” her mother said.
This weekend, she and her mother stayed at the DoubleTree hotel near Rockefeller Center. They lunched at the East Side restaurant Serendipity (cheeseburger and a “frozen hot chocolate”). And Corcelli danced with Dovolani at his Soho studio, “Dance With Me.”
“He came in, and he’s like, ‘Let’s start dancing!’” Corcelli said. “He showed me the routine, we practiced a little and we did the final dance.”
It took her less than an hour to learn the salsa routine he’d choreographed. Then they spent the next hour dancing.
Said Corcelli: “I enjoyed every moment of it.”
ETA: You can watch a video of Tony and Isabella dancing here. Tony also helped to promote Maks Chmerkovskiy’s new “Cantamessa Men” jewelry line this week. He also helped Extra interview at the Westminster Dog Show (seen below). Also on Feb. 19th, you can watch Tony on The Exes.
