I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Did the Daily Mail Just Reveal Val Chmerkovskiy’s Partner for DWTS Season 20?

I do believe the answer to that one is YES. Rumer Willis, welcome to DWTS!!  In this exclusive, Val and Rumer are seen practicing – Rumer is in her capezios and everything.  Click the link to see the Photos!

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ eldest daughter sure is brave.

On Saturday Rumer Willis was seen practicing her dance moves with Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s brother Valetin while at Millennium Dance Complex in Studio City.

That can only mean that the 26-year-old House Bunny star is preparing to become a contestant on ABC’s hit reality series Dancing With The Stars, MailOnline can reveal exclusively.

ETA: So, Val gets another young, fit partner – but is she a ringer?? Going by Maks’ fans past characterizations of Derek’s partners, yes she is – she went to performing arts school, after all. That was all it took for Derek’s partners. But since we try to be more rational here at PureDWTS, I’m not so sure. I don’t think she’s a ringer. But I also don’t see Val as having much of a challenge – and still plenty of room for a showmance. :-)

ETA2: Uhhhh…yeah. Maybe not a true ringer, but certainly no slouch.

ETA3: Vogue here. US Weekly is now confirming Rumer Willis is dancing on Dancing With The Stars Season 20.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Savannah Chrisley To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Ok, so this might be reaching for straws, but, at this point in the off season, you never know? Apparently, Savannah Chrisley of “Chrisley Knows Best” is following Rob Wade. Although I couldn’t find it (if you can, let us know), a fan tells us that Val Chmerkovskiy is following her. Also, Chrisley recently retweeted a post of a fan campaigning for her. Below are some screen shots. Could this be something in the making for Dancing With The Stars Season 20? If so, let us know what you think? Thanks to fan @Liz_Lemon2 for the heads up!

ADDING: Savannah also posted of having “exciting news to share”. Also, Val is following her in the 7th row at twitter. Thanks to DLT for finding….

Emma Slater And Valentin Chmerkovskiy Talk On The New Season Of Dancing With The Stars

Just a couple of fun mentions to start our Monday! First, Emma Slater chatted about the new season of Dancing With The Stars in a Q & A at one of the Dancing With The Stars Live shows. Below is a report from the VC Post. Emma mentions how the new season will be “the biggest and most impressive season of Dancing With The Stars ever”. Thanks to Kristyn Burtt for this find…

During the preview of DWTS tour date at the Saenger Theater with Witney Carson and Alfonso Ribeiro in New Orleans, pro Emma Slater dropped some intel for the upcoming anniversary series.

Slater was asked by a reporter if she’s returning amid rumors spreading online about which of the pros may or may not be returning.

She answered the question indirectly by saying, “Actually, we will find that out very shortly and we can’t wait to tell you guys, and give you some information. But what we can tell you is that Season 20 is going to be the biggest and most impressive season of Dancing With The Stars ever. So you have to watch it. It’s going to be huge. There’s going to be initiative.”

Also, Val Chmerkovskiy talked on the new season at one of the Q & A’s. He mentions a return of the Tuesday night shows. What do you think? Thanks to DWTSgossip for this heads up…

Exciting! Bring on this new season!! And I’m game for them bringing back Tuesday shows as long as we see more pro numbers and Macy’s Stars Of Dance with Derek at the helm.

Witney Carson Interviewed About The Dancing With The Stars Live Tour, DWTS, And More

I’m back and many many thanks to Angels, Miss Heidi and Lori, for having my back these last few days! My goodness. That flu bug is just awful and something I hope none of you experience. If you do, be sure to drink lots of fluids and get lots of rest.

So, onto some more news….
Utah fans are looking forward to Witney Carson returning home next week for the Dancing With The Stars Live Tour. The Salt Lake Tribune has a great piece on it along with an interview. Below Witney talks on what it’s like to do Dancing With The Stars versus touring in the show.

“Really, just to be on the show was a huge thing for me,” Carson said. “I never thought in a million years that I would win it.”

Dancing with stars presents a challenge unlike any other for a professional dancer.

“It’s completely different because you have to not only worry about yourself, but you have to worry about a celebrity who has no idea of dance,” Carson said. “So you have to be able to teach them and teach them in the right way. And you have to be kind of like a mentor for them because they are so uncomfortable. They’re putting themselves out there and you have to kind of be their support system and get them through this long journey. There’s a lot of work that comes into it.”

The tour, which stops at the Maverik Center in West Valley City on Thursday, is also “completely different” from the TV show.

“It’s just all of us dancing together and not having, really, a lot of stress,” Carson said. “We don’t have to worry about a celebrity partner. It’s more just having a great time and just doing what we love and sharing it with everyone.”

And live like rock stars, right down to having their own “little bunks in our bus that we travel around on.”

A little less glamorous than you might think.

“Trust me, a lot of this career is not a lot of glamour,” Carson said. “People look at it like it’s so glamorous, but it’s a lot of hard work.”
