Access Hollywood Interviews Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough

This is a really good, lengthy interview! What I find most interesting is Derek, though. He’s so…loose and relaxed and happy and kinda flirty. Very attractive. And his trainer is doing amazing work. šŸ™‚  If this is what a show like New York Spring Spectacular does for him, then I hope he does one ever year!! I also really like Nastia – she seems pretty level headed.  Great interview!!

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. :-)

Willow Shields Writes First Dancing With The Stars Season 20 Blog

Get ready! The The Dancing With The Stars Season 20 blogs have just began. Up first is Willow Shields with Access Hollywood. Willow is excited to say the least about doing the show….and so is her Grandmother.

Needless, to say my grandmother is freaked out because they wouldn’t miss an episode of “Dancing with the Stars.” They were so excited they insisted we open a bottle of champagne, and yes, I had a sip and it tasted awful! I have no idea why adults drink champagne—yeah, let’s celebrate something really exciting by drinking this terrible tasting stuff, ewww! Anyway, a week later my great-grandmother had to go to the hospital with chest pains. I’m like, I hope she isn’t TOO excited about this whole dancing thing! Don’t worry, it was just a coincidence. She’s okay. It was just bad heartburn according to the doctors.

Next, I gotta prepare for this! I started stretching immediately, which has got to help, right? I also started watching YouTube videos of “Dancing with the Stars.” I loved watching the show in the past, but now I can study dancers from a bunch of years. Yeah, this is what actors do; they study people who are experts at things. Jennifer actually learned to shoot a bow and arrow for “The Hunger Games.” I’m going to have to learn to dance for this show! But the more I watched YouTube videos, the more I realized these dancers are incredible. Oh God, what have I done! I said yes BEFORE watching these videos, am I insane?

Recently I got to meet my pro dancer partner. I was VERY nervous. In my head, I was hoping for Mark Ballas but wondering who it would be. They brought the pro in through the door of the dance studio, and I don’t think I breathed for about a minute. When I saw him, I freaked out! I think I screamed but not sure. . . Mark Ballas, yeah!

More at Access Hollywood.

ETA: Below is Willow and Mark with Access Hollywood after the cast announcement. I wonder why they waited so long to post this? Fun interview. I like these two already!

Tom Bergeron And Erin Andrews Talk On Dancing With The Stars Season 20

KMBZ has a mention on Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. ABC News asked them to provide some insight on the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Here is how they replied…

Speaking with ABC News, Bergeron quipped, “I’m giving it to one of these 12. I really think they, they’re probably, more than anybody else, likely to win. Just, if you’re looking at it on a percentage basis, has a much higher percentage of winning.”

Bergeron’s co-host, Erin Andrews, provided ABC News with some insight into what fans can expect from the new season. She said the “Disney” and “My Most Memorable Year” themes will be back. She added, “There are some weeks that I know that went over well with the fans that are coming back, but, and then some new tricks up their sleeve as well.”
