Paige VanZant Talks To Fox Sports About Dancing With The Stars And Bringing A New Dimension

After the cast announcement, Paige VanZant talked to Fox Sports about dancing on Dancing With The Stars. She just wants to bring a new dimension and be a really good representative of women’s sports. I’m loving this girl….

VanZant knows how huge this opportunity is for her and that she’ll be a representative for women’s MMA, and she takes that very seriously.

“I just want to bring a new dimension and I want to be a really good representative of women’s athletes and women’s fighters. Just to show them that we can do so much more than fight, so much more than just being tough. So I’m excited to show a whole new side of me,” VanZant said.

“People identify me as a fighter and I am a fighter, I’m tough, but I want to show there’s so much more to me than that.”

VanZant’s appearance on “Dancing with the Stars” began with a conversation her management team had with the producers of the show several months ago as the cast for the new season started coming together.

DWTS22 Ginger Zee Teaching Val Chmerkovskiy About Parenthood, New “Our Way” Heavyweight Poster

Did you ever expect we’d see Val Chmerkovskiy learn about pumps and breast feeding? He is. Below he and Ginger Zee talk to People all about it and what she’s been teaching Val so far about parenthood during rehearsals.

I think there’s a lot of new moms out there that are going, ‘I don’t know if I can do that,’ but I think hopefully being a role model will [help]. Women get asked that all the time. ‘How are you gonna do it all?’ … It’s just underlying,” she said after the full DWTS cast was revealed. “We’re just doing it. There isn’t a question of ‘How are you gonna do it?’ ”

And partner Val Chmerkovskiy has learned some new things about parenthood as well.

“I’m familiar with the pumps now, which is very unusual,” Chmerkovskiy said of his partner using a breast pump before rehearsal.

“Women will say — I travel and breastfeed — ‘Well, how are you going to do that?’ ” she told reporters. “A lot of people do it! [Val’s] just gotten used to it. And it’s just a part of life. You walk in, you start pumping and get it out, and then I’m ready to practice!”

And speaking of Val! For those going to the Maks and Val tour this summer, below is a new “Our Way” poster.

More Dancing With The Stars Season 22 Interviews With People

Just a couple of more People. Kim Fields says she feels so blessed to be doing Dancing With The Stars/ What’s more, she says one of best part of the gig is having Sasha Farber as a partner. Awww, I have never followed her career. The more I hear from her, the more I like her.

“No, I’m excited about that as well. I’ve been doing this for so long, I’m very blessed and just really excited about another new component to my career – and this is definitely that.”

Fields is partnered with Sasha Farber, who last appeared as a contestant on the show with Nicole “Snooki” LaValle in season 17. Fields said Farber is one of the best parts of the gig.

“[I’m] learning something new that I can also take with me for the rest of my life, tapping into some of the history in my life and my culture, from Harlem to my maternal grandmother, who was a dancer,” she said. “So I’m excited about those things. I think more importantly, just working with Sasha.”

More at People.”>this link.

People also has more posted on Witney Carson and Von Miller. Witney says devotion and working hard is important. I have a feeling that won’t be an issue with Von…

“That’s what people fall in love with – the partnership you have,” she says. “We’re really going to work on that so we can make it to the top.”

And while he’s still working on his salsa, Carson says Miller’s devotion to his sport shows through in his dancing.

“He’s super hard worker,” she says. “He knows how to put in the hours.”

“You have to be dedicated and have to put in the time, because we don’t have a lot of time, and he gets that.”

That’s key for Miller’s DWTS success mindset. He’s also taking his cues from his Broncos coach, Gary Kubiak. After Miller asked him how they were going to win the Super Bowl, Kubiak told him “It’s on you.”

Carson says that work hard, do well attitude is what is driving Miller this season.

“He’s very confident that he puts in the time, if he dedicates himself to the craft, he’ll be successful.”
