PureDWTS Season 19 Mini-Spoiler O’ the Day – Sept. 9

Less than a week to go before the show! Hope you’re as pumped as we are ;-) Here’s a funny story to make this Tuesday go by more quickly: apparently I’ve been secretly working for the DWTS casting department all along, guys – some people on Twitter “have been suspicious about it for awhile”, and the fact that Alfonso & Antonio have been cast this season is “proof that I have a profound influence on casting”.  I mean, I guess I’ll take credit…but where’s my check, ABC payroll department? Mama needs some more Oribe deep conditioner 8-)

Catch up on all of our mini-spoilers here.  Today’s spoiler after the jump… Read more..

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

What Are Your First Impressions In These Categories For Dancing With The Stars Season 19?

Ok, so most of you have seen the first interview videos, read the first spoilers, and interviews, etc.. Question: What Are Your First Impressions In These Categories For Dancing With The Stars Season 19: Biggest Surprise, Most Dramatic, Most Likely To Showmance, First Eliminated, and Real Top 4? Court, Heidi, and I will weigh in below with our answers and thoughts. We’d love to hear your answers and thoughts as well. Please join us in comments if interested.

Biggest Surprise: It’s funny as I’m kind of getting this “biggest surprise” feeling from all of the contestants in some way. Sadie is surprising me by having such a sweet personality. With a ‘Duck Dynasty’ connection, I was expecting “Bristol Palin” #2, but, I’m not getting that feeling at all. She seems to have a lively, light hearted, and sweet disposition.

I also think one of the biggest surprises we’ll see is how far Michael Waltrip and Randy Couture might go in this competition for their fun personalities. Though I think “promo” is key here for both. I especially hope Michael feeds his You Tube channel like we saw Nancy Grace do because that seemed to help her a lot in her season.

I wonder on Tavis as well as it could go either way. Even though Read more..

PureDWTS Poetry Corner: “Casting The Stars Of The Dance”

And here is our fabulous resident poet, Lois, with another one of her great poems putting this past week’s emotions together….

CASTING STARS OF THE DANCE

Season 19 is complete by casting stars of the dance
A variety of stars twinkling, tantalizing, taking a chance

From a race car driver to actors oozing the word hot
Each one has been cast, each one being given a shot

To have their star rise, twirling across the dance floor
DANCING WITH THE STARS casting spells and allure

The pros are polishing the talents of the brilliant cast
Three new pros join the fun, will their stars learn fast

On September 4 the cast assembled together on GMA
Announced one by one, it was a glorious, happy day

Having the honors of announcing each dancing pair
Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews voices filled the air

The pairs debuted as they came through the door:

ARTEM CHIGVINTSEV AND LEA THOMPSON
DEREK HOUGH AND BETHANY MOTA
KEO MOTSEPE AND. LOLO JONES
TONY DOVOLANI AND BETSEY JOHNSON
MARK BALLAS AND SADIE ROBERTSON
VALENTIN CHMERKOVSKIY AND JANEL PARRISH
EMMA SLATER AND MICHAEL WALTRIP
ALISON HOLKER AND JONATHAN BENNETT
KARINA SMIRNOFF AND RANDY COUTURE
CHERYL BURKE AND ANTONIO SABATO, JR
PETA MURGATROYD AND TOMMY CHONG
WITNEY CARSON AND ALFONSO RIBIERO

But, wait, Number 13 was cast, there was one more:

SHARNA BURGESS AND TAVIS SMILEY

The countdown is on, the ballroom is ready to roar
Rafters will shake, dance fever temperatures soar

September 15 stars will shine, emitting a special glow
CASTING STARS OF.THE DANCE and on with the show!

Written By Lois A Troutman, September 6, 2014

JUDGES BRUNO, LEN, CARRIE ANN ARE JOINED BY ONE!
JULIANNE HOUGH HAS BEEN CAST TO JOIN IN THE FUN!

SEASON 19 WILL GIVE US PLEASURE, CAST WILL SHINE!

Tony Dovolani And Betsy Johnson Interviewed By People, What To Expect On DWTS

People interviewed Betsey Johnson and Tony Dovolani. Tony tells them that Betsey is going to be “inspiring” on Dancing With The Stars. For one thing, Betsey doesn’t plan to let her age stop her from doing cartwheels pn the dance floor. Below is more. Be sure to see the link for a fun picture and video.

“What’s great about Betsey is she’s so inspiring in every way,” Dovolani tells PEOPLE. “To be 72, and to do what she does, is so inspiring.”

“Seventy-three, get it right!” Johnson corrects him jokingly.

“Somebody said she was 73 and she was very hurt by that,” Dovolani explains.

So, will the whimsical designer be getting any input regarding her wardrobe on the show?

“We want Betsey to come out as Betsey,” Dovolani says. “Who’s going to tell her how to dress?

“Think I’m going to wear one of the those backless diamond fringe outfits?” she says. “No, I’m going to keep it very real.”

One thing that will be making an appearance on the dance floor? Johnson’s signature cartwheels, which close out each of the designer’s fashion shows.

“We’re going to put one in,” Dovolani confirms. Adds Johnson: “I know I won’t screw that up.”
