Louis Van Amstel’s Goal For Paula Deen Each Week On Dancing With The Stars

Entertainment Tonight interviewed Paula Deen and Louis Van Amstel last night after they danced on Dancing With The Stars. I loved this part of the interview. So sweet…

“I want Paula to improve each week, that she walks out of this show stronger and happier, and not having to put on a face for any reason other than just being truly happy,” Louis said. “I love you, Paula Deen.”

Sharna Burgess Writes On Last Night’s Dance On Dancing With The Stars, WhipClips

What a beautiful new blog by Sharna Burgess. She writes of how special last night’s dance was for her and why. Below is more from Hollywood Life. It’s funny. I wrote in Courtney’s rankings how her and Nick’s dance was like an epic movie.

What an amazing night! Though it didn’t start out that way…this week was a really intense week for us. We didn’t get our music cleared ’til late on Thursday so I wasn’t able to teach Nick the routine until Friday. So considering all of the stress and losing two days and many hours of rehearsal, and also Nick’s frustration and the pressure that he puts on himself, I feel like he performed the Viennese Waltz beautifully.

We shared such a wonderful moment tonight where we really embodied the characters of Downton Abbey’s Matthew Crawley and Lady Mary, and for a moment, it felt like we were in a movie scene — not on the ‘Dancing With The Stars’ floor, not competing for a mirror ball trophy, but sharing this moment in time of playing these characters and having so much fun with it.

Honestly that’s truly what dance is for me — being able to step outside myself and who I am, and doing something completely different. Nick did just that as well and really was my true dance partner tonight; he was not my celebrity partner, and he wasn’t someone that I’m training for a competition. He became someone that was like my equal, and it felt awesome on the dance floor to enjoy that experience with him.

PureDWTS Season 21, Week 3 – Power Rankings

Last night, for the first time ever, I got to say the following sentence and mean it literally: “There are Muppets in the control room.” 😛 Not sure they had a terribly strong presence on last night’s show, but it was still a cute touch here and there to see Kermit & Miss Piggy bopping around.  Another nice touch? A guest judge that actually gave intelligent critiques.  I’ve seen about 50/50 when it comes to everyone’s thoughts on Alfonso – half seemed to like him as a judge, half seemed to hate him.  I fall in the former camp – call me crazy (or “biased” – just make sure you own your own biases, too 😉 ) but since Len left, it has felt like a 3-ring circus on that judging panel, and the last thing I wanted was a another pointless guest judge mucking it up even further – I felt like Alfonso did his best to give relevant, helpful critiques, and was nicer about it than both Carrie Ann and Julianne. And dammit, he was able to get away with saying what we all (likely including the other judges) have been thinking: the husband & wife act between Alexa & Carlos is TIRED.  They need to start looking out for themselves, or they’ll both lose.

As for the other judges – Carrie Ann still seemed cranky with just about everyone except Tamar, Julianne seemed to vacillate between semi-coherence and obvious scripting, and once again – Bruno seemed to be on the most even keel, although that’s even debatable.  God I miss Len something fierce. And something else I miss: rehearsal packages that aren’t completely scripted, tacky, and forced. The three that come to mind as the most cringeworthy are Tamar & Val’s, Alexa & Mark’s, and Alek & Lindsay’s…particularly the latter, as I’m now getting inundated with tweets asking if Alek is dating Brittany/Jenna/Karina/etc. You do all realize that was scripted nonsense, right? Right down to Hayes humorously c*ckblocking Alek’s attempt to “get Brittany’s number” with his Ninja Turtle costume? I thought we taught you guys better than that – to see through the bullsh*t.  The only nugget of truth from that whole nonsensical segment was Emma saying “I would love to get you in the switch, Alek!” She confirmed that on Twitter last week – so by all means, feel free to tweet #DWTSAlekEmma till your heart’s content 🙂 Just don’t hold out for pap pix of Jenna & Alek getting coffee, or Brittany & Alek getting into an Uber together, etc.

Sucks that Kim had to withdraw, but I can’t say none of us saw it coming – a stroke is a bit more serious than a sprained ankle or an aching back, and it’s good that she’s taking time out to take care of herself.  Can’t say I agree with the campaign I’m seeing to bring her back later in the competition, though – basically giving her a free pass straight to a later week without having to survive her way through the elims like other contestants? I don’t think so, kids. Let her come back and dance at the finale, but that’s it.  As for who ended up “in jeopardy” – I’m not entirely sure that those two couples were the actual bottom two, and since TPTB knew from the get-go that they weren’t actually going to eliminate anyone…I think they very well could have just picked two random couples to be in jeopardy. That being said – I do find it curious that they picked who they did, especially since we’ve only seen Gary in jeopardy with the eliminated couples the past two elims.  I think Andy & Allison are in real danger of fading into the woodwork, and Paula might be losing steam.  Guess we’ll see come next Monday… Read more..

PureDWTS Season 21, Week 4 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

So, below is what we know so far for Dancing With The Stars Season 21 Week 4. Note that the couples dance to their “Most Memorable Year”! The following week is “Switch Up” week. Keep checking back for updates and don’t miss seeing our new Media and Interviews post.

ETA: According to this interview, Andy and Allison are dancing to his new single “Good To Be Alive” for their next dance. DWTSGossip is also confirming.

ETA2: Source says Paula has “Respect” by Aretha Franklin, and that Tamar has foxtrot.

ETA3: Source shared Alek’s song & dance.  I don’t know about you guys, but I’m stoked to see him do paso – and I kind of love the sentiment of the song chosen: “Don’t wake me up when it’s all over.” He’s loving the crazy experience he’s had in the last month 🙂 -Court-

ETA4: True story: When I was little, I thought the ladies singing Tamar’s song were saying “Marmoset there’ll be days like this, there’ll be days like this, marmoset.” Apparently I thought tiny primates had very rough lives. -Court-

ETA5: Alexa’s song seems to be one that people either love or hate. I fall in the latter camp 🙁 -Court-

ETA6: According to DWTSGossip, Tamar told Wendy Williams that she’s practicing the rumba. Sounds like Val changed the song and dance style yet again. He can’t seem to hang with what he’s handed and that says a lot. ~Heidi

ETA7: George Penacchio confirmed that Bindi & Derek have “Every Breath You Take”.  I had heard that either Bindi or Hayes had it, but couldn’t decide which one it made more sense for… – Court-

ETA8: I give up… -Court-

ETA9: Sharna “thinks” they are dancing 6th. Not sure. I’m guessing Bindi goes last and that Hayes goes first. After that, who knows?

ETA10: Some updates on running order – Heidi guessed right on Bindi! And George Pennachio says Alexa’s going first and confirms Nick going 6th. -Court-

Alexa and Mark – Foxtrot (Song: “Mama Said” by The Shirelles)

PureDWTS Season 21 Week 3 Scores, Media, And Interviews With The Cast After They Danced

What a great night of TV last night on Dancing With The Stars. The couples talk about it and more in their new interviews. Access Hollywood talked with Alfonso Ribiero too. I loved how he said 6 or 7 could win Dancing With The Stars this season. He named Bindi, Nick, and Tamar as the Top 3 right now. He said all of them need to “keep stepping it up” and “create connection that we’re all going to enjoy.” Right on, Alfonso! Did you enjoy him as a Judge? I thought he did a superb job and so did my Dad.

The scores again for those who might have missed them….

Paula Deen and Louis Van Amstel: 20/40
Gary Busey and Anna Trebunskaya: 25/40
