Sharna Burgess And Tavis Smiley Interviewed About Dancing With The Stars And More

My Fox LA interviewed Tavis Smiley about his new book called ‘Death Of A King.’ It sounds fascinating as it’s about the last year of Martin Luther King’s life. They also talk about Dancing With The Stars. He says he’s NOT having fun. Hilarious….

Also, Dance Spirit interviewed Sharna Burgess about being a pro on Dancing With The Stars. They also ask on her new partner Tavis Smiley. I love what she says about him below. Be sure to see the link for more. Thanks to @DWTSgossip for the find.

How have your rehearsals with Tavis Smiley been going?
Tavis has an amazing story. He grew up in a church that didn’t allow him to dance—he didn’t even get to go to the prom! But while his dance experience is very minimal, he’s been wonderful to work with. He said something that really resonated with me: “Just because you know some of me doesn’t mean you know the sum of me.” We all think of him as this serious person, a political activist deeply involved in world affairs—the guy who’s interviewed Obama three times. Yet beneath that is a fun, happy-go-lucky man, and it’s been a pleasure getting to know that side of him. That’s what I’m excited for America to see.

What’s most challenging about being a “DWTS” pro, and what’s most rewarding?
The challenge is that for a little more than three months, you don’t get a single day off. Your relationships are put on hold, because the show consumes every hour of the day: When you’re not teaching your celebrity, you’re having wardrobe meetings or planning your group numbers. But that’s also what’s so amazing about it. I keep reminding myself that I’m one of those lucky people who get to do what they love 24/7. It’s a double-edged sword, but I’d never wish it away.

Janel Parrish’s First Dance On DWTS An Ode To Pretty Little Liars

Janel Parrish and Val Chmerkovskiy are doing a Jive for their first dance on Dancing With The Stars. Also, it will be an “ode to Pretty Little Liars”. Here is more from People

I started dancing when I was 6 and was in and out of dance classes my whole life, but never anything with partnering and never any ballroom – so really never anything that’s going to help with this.

We are doing the jive this week, and my body’s kind of working against everything that I learned in my dance classes. Everything that my instincts want to do is not correct for the jive. Eventually, I think my instincts will be correct with certain dances.

My first dance contains an ode to Pretty Little Liars. If I get it right, which I think I will because Val’s going to whip me into shape, it’s going to be explosive.

Music Buzz: Will Chris Brown Perform On Dancing With The Stars?

According to Hollywood Life, Chris Brown might be performing on Dancing With The Stars at some point in the season. And what if it happens even as soon as next week for the premiere being his new “X” album comes out on the 16th? I hope so. I always love Chris’ performances and I hope he dances.

HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that Chris is set to take the stage on Saturday Night Live and even the ballroom dance floor on Dancing With The Stars.

“In support and promotion for ‘X,’ Chris will be doing the typical promotional slate to get the word out that the album is coming and that will include appearances and performances on both SNL and DWTS,” an insider tells us. “Everyone is very excited for this to happen and Chris really wants to make the appearances very memorable. Should be a very fun time.”

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..
