R.I. P. Whitney Houston One of Dancing With The Stars Greatest Guests To Entertain

I am so shocked on this news as I’m sure all of you are. I don’t know what to say? :( :( According to MSNBC, Whitney Houston, one of the greatest singers of our time (and all time) has passed away…cause and location of death at this time is unknown.

At her peak, Houston the golden girl of the music industry. From the middle 1980s to the late 1990s, she was one of the world’s best-selling artists. She wowed audiences with effortless, powerful, and peerless vocals that were rooted in the black church but made palatable to the masses with a pop sheen.

Her success carried her beyond music to movies, where she starred in hits like “The Bodyguard” and “Waiting to Exhale.”

She had the he perfect voice, and the perfect image: a gorgeous singer who had sex appeal but was never overtly sexual, who maintained perfect poise.

She influenced a generation of younger singers, from Christina Aguilera to Mariah Carey, who when she first came out sounded so much like Houston that many thought it was Houston.

Below is of Whitney’s most fun performances on Dancing With The Stars and doesn’t this song just say it all for what the show is about?:

With all of our love, rest in peace Whitney! You’ll never be forgotten! Thank you for your music! xxx

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 .

Pure Dancing With The Stars Odds And Ends For Your TGIF, Feb. 10th!!

Hi All!!! I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday!! Stay tuned for John’s announcement of our Brooke Burke Giveaway Contest winners. For now, here are some Dancing With The Stars odds and ends!!

First up, the producers of LIVE! With Kelly must have enjoyed Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba co-hosting with Kelly that they’ve asked her back. According to ABC Media, Carrie Ann will be helping Kelly on Tuesday, Feb. 22nd during LIVE! With Kelly’s “Hawaiian Week”. Lots of things are on tap for this special week in Hawaii including a wedding segment where Derek Hough will make an appearance again teaching the winning couple how to dance. Carson Kressley will also join in to help the couple with their wedding attire on Wednesday, Feb. 23rd. You can read more on the week at ABC Media.

In other TV mentions, Dancing With The Stars pro Mark Ballas will be weighing in on “VH1’s 100 Greatest Women In Music”. The 5-hour special will rank the “biggest of the big” including Madonna, Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Whitney Houston and more. Hours 1 and 2 will air February 13th at 10PM. For more details and other episode times, be sure to visit MarkBallas.com.

Moving on to another dancing pro!!! Have you noticed Lacey Schwimmer’s recent twitter profile picture? It looks like she’s changed her hair to a more darker shade. Well, Rex Features has some close ups of Lacey walking out and about in Los Angeles recently. Her hair is a little different from her new twitter profile picture, but, you can her current look here. What do you think? I’m liking it. I hope she goes with more natural highlights like this (versus something funky) for the show if she’s picked again.

For some more news on Derek Hough, this week he attended a Cold Play concert in Los Angeles. Don’t miss some fun shots of him at Pure Derek Hough. Heidi has also posted some cool new Cobu3D collages. A MUST SEE Derek Hough Fans!! :)

Thanks to this news from Evaine, Maks courted his Mom to an Espen Salburg fashion show this week looking gorgeous as ever and happy. See a fun picture of them here.

Last, but, not least, back to Dancing With The Stars co-host Brooke Burke. This week Brooke was seen on a beach in Malibu taking shots for a new photo shoot. According to her twitter, she was shooting a summer cover for Prevention Magazine. Below is a picture of her walking in the sand all smiles. You can view more pictures and read more on the shoot at the Daily Mail. Nice, I’m loving this dress!!

Ok, that is all for now. Maybe more later…if you’re good? ;) xx
