Official: Alexa Vega & Carlos Pena, Jr. On DWTS Season 21

As usual, DWTS is not following their model of actually waiting to report the couples on the shows they originally told us they were reporting them on, and ET Online has leaked ahead of time that Carlos & Alexa are, indeed, on DWTS this season…and I already kind of adore having a husband and wife team on the show:

ET caught up with the dancing duo at Disneyland’s Diamond Celebration on Thursday morning to break the DWTS news.

“It’s so exciting,” Alexa, who is also celebrating her 27th birthday today, gushed to ET’s Cameron Mathison. “It’s beautiful, it’s overwhelming, it’s an incredible blessing.”

Alexa and Carlos, who tied the knot in January 2014, will be paired up with separate professional partners and will dance against each other for the mirror-ball trophy. However, the couple is determined to support each other throughout the process.

“It’s so good, though, because he literally rehearses right next door,” Alexa shared. “So he’ll walk over to me and he’ll just give me a kiss. It’s just so encouraging. He is my teammate and my life partner, so I like that encouragement. I need it.”

As we mentioned in this post, our source has confirmed that Alexa is paired with Mark and Carlos is with Witney.

ETA: Thanks to idolxfactor1 for the video! ~Heidi

ETA: Alexa does the Nae Nae. 🙂 She seems cute.

Look a what I found! @vegaalexa #alexapenavega #DWTS #dancingwiththestars #DWTS21 #WhipandNaeNae #alexavega

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, baker, 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.

Kim Zolciak Joins DWTS Season 21 Per E! News

They were doing so well! Anyway, according to E! News, Kim has joined the cast. She was rumored way back in Season 12.

Kim shot to fame on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta. From there, she launched a singing career—don’t deny, you know you love “Tardy for the Party” and “Google Me”—and got her spinoff, the appropriately titled Don’t Be Tardy…

A mom of six, Kim is married to footballer Kroy Biermann. The two met while Kim was on RHOA and their wedding was chronicled for a spinoff. Other women from the Real Housewives world to compete on DWTS include Lisa Vanderpump andNeNe Leakes.

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. :-)

Hi, I'm a news hounds from way back. Since 1999, I've worked on Madonna and Enrique Iglesias fan sites....and now PureDWTS. I have always been a big music and dancing fan, but, I'm also passionate about photography, nature, animals, and spending as much time as possible travelling and camping with my hubby and our loving and patriotic doggie, Cash.

Pure Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Morning Media Start Up

Good Day All! Rise and shine!! First, how about some new pics of Julianne Hough at the Daily Mail. She looks so cute as she attended a Taylor Swift concert the other night. Derek Hough did so as well. You can view some new shots of him at Pure Derek Hough.

And for those wondering, Kaitlyn Bristowe will not be dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. It’s not the right time. You can read more at E Online. Allison Braver will not be dancing in this season either according to this tweet. Dang, she would have been a good one.

Also, US Weekly has a fun article about Nick Carter and some of the Backstreet Boys costumes he should recycle for Dancing With The Stars. *Awww, memories. Bring it, Nick! I can’t wait to see how he and Sharna will get creative in this area.

Excited to be a part of this season of @dancingabc! Thank you for all your support #dwts

Lastly, Andy Grammer was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. He sang and he got his groove on. Peta has a good one this season….

Vogue over and out….for now!xx
