Rumer Willis was a guest on The Talk today. She talked about winning Dancing With The Stars and how she wishes she had become a Pro Dancer. She also spoke about performing in “Sway” and the new Dancing With The Stars Live Tour next. Rumer also performed Toxic” on the show while Dancing With The Stars partner Val Chmerkovksiy played the violin. You can watch the interview below. The Talk should be uploading the full episode soon at this link for those interesting in seeing her “Toxic” performance.
So many of you brought it to our attention that Donny was asked about doing the all-star season the other day on The Talk, and I was finally able to locate a clip. While he seemed to tend more towards the “no” side (“It’s a lot of work!” and “I have one mirror ball trophy I rub in Marie’s face. Why two???), he did say he’d “love to get that trophy again!”. Video below for those who want to see for themselves…it’s around the 10:00 mark. Notice how Donny looks a bit guilty & fidgety when first asked about it:
So while Donny seems to give the impression of “sounds fun, but I’m super busy”, I wouldn’t necessarily write him off as a no-go for the all-star season. I wouldn’t write Marie off just yet, either. Why, you ask?
Our reader Christy pointed out to us last week that Donny & Marie both appear to have cleared their schedules for the fall, as the last event either of them have listed on their respective websites is a gig in Atlantic City on August 5. After that, they have nothing scheduled until their UK tour in January of next year. Are they allocating time to participate in the all-star season, perhaps?
What about their long-running Vegas show? Well, officially, their show at the Flamingo is contracted through October of this year, so there could be a bit of overlap if they do decide to do the all-star season…but the show is dark on Monday evenings, and having a Vegas show sure didn’t seem to stop Donny during his season on DWTS, as Sharon aptly pointed out on The Talk. And as of right now, you’re only able to purchase tickets for their Vegas show through July 28 on the Flamingo website. Could they be ending their run in Vegas early, and heading for Hollywood to go head-to-head in the all-star season?
I decided to get a bit sneaky and see what I could find out by calling the Flamingo box office. I pretended to be a daughter whose parents were celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary and were planning a trip to Vegas, and I wanted to gift them with tickets to the finale of Donny & Marie’s Vegas show in October. The sales rep on the other end of the line, while very friendly, got a bit dodgy with me at that point, and delivered the obligatory “I’m sorry, ma’am, at this time we have only opened ticket sales for shows leading up to July 28. But if you call back in a month or so, we might have tickets available for shows at a later date.” Bah…cop-out. 😛 It could mean nothing – maybe they’re still planning out the last few months of the show’s run. But I thought it was interesting nonetheless, and gave me some food for thought. 😉
So what do you guys think about Donny and/or Marie possibly coming back for the all-star season? Let’s get your thoughts…
Today, Nancy Grace was a guest host on The Talk. They discuss some of the hot topics in the news recently. The girls also try to convince Nancy to dance, but, she makes excuses for how she can’t…not without the right shoes and Tristan who she says is in Ireland. But, guess what? The ladies provide Nancy with some dance shoes, the dance floor, the music, and Tristan MacManus pops in to save the day! Nancy changes her mind and she and Tristan dance. LOL You can view the episode in full at The Talk website. Tristan appears in the fourth segment if you want to fast forward to it. Too cute!!!
Is Kris Jenner, Rob Kardashian’s mother and co-host of The Talk, headed to Dancing With The Stars? According to a Huffington Post insider, the show is hoping Kris will dance next.
“They have already had Kim and brother Rob Kardashian on the show and now they are hoping to get mamma Kris to swing her hips,” an insider told me. “Love them or hate them, the Kardashians bring a huge amount of media and buzz to anything they do and having Kris join the next show would be a smart and controversial move, which is exactly what this show loves to do.”
The link also mentions Rob Quivers has turned down the show for the fourth time.
“They have already asked Robin Quivers from the ‘Howard Stern Show’ to join next season, but she has turned them down for a fourth time, saying she doesn’t want to take that much time away from Howard,” a source close to Stern’s show told me. “So expect Kris to get her offer in the next few weeks.”
Tom Bergeron was a hoot today as always on The Talk, but, he gets serious as well especially when he’s asked straight up on all the controversy on the show this past week. He defends Maks saying he was clumsy with his wording, but, that’s “LIVE TV for ya.” He had to be honest and say he thought Bruno was “rude” with his comments on Chaz and he understands why Chaz was offended. Tom avoided the question when asked who will win Dancing With The Stars Season 13. The person he is most inspired by on the show this season is J.R. Martinez. Though, the best part of the interview is when Tom spills on how he took the gig to host Dancing With The Stars. I won’t ruin it for you. Take a listen in the third segment of the show >>>>HERE
Yesterday, Louis Van Amstel was a guest on The Talk. Sharon Osbourne not only held the interview, she raved on everything Louis did for her daughter Kelly. She said Kelly was a “lost little girl” before she met Louis and that he turned her into a “woman”. Louis went on to say how much Kelly changed him too. He said Kelly was the “biggest inspiration ever on Dancing With The Stars”. Louis then talked a little of what they went through on Dancing With The Stars. Great interview…and touching as well. You can see part of the interview in the video below. To see the work out/dance part, watch the full episode >>>>here .
