Ginzer Zee Talks About Bullies Who Have Given Her A Hard Time For Doing DWTS And More

Is there something wrong with being a Mom and doing Dancing With The Stars? I say NO”!! Apparently, there are some bullies out there who have given Ginger Zee a hard time about it. Snooki and others weigh in too. More below and at People.

“You have to ignore [the judgment], especially social media,” advises Selenis Leyvia, 43, who plays Gloria Mendoza on Orange Is the New Black and is mom to teenage daughter Alina. “Sometimes [people] can be so awful, and when they go out to get you and be mean, they go for it.”

Zee, who recently landed DWTS‘ first perfect score of the season, then reflects on how much differently she handles criticism now that she’s a mom as opposed to during her 15-year career.

“They could say whatever they wanted to me — call me ugly and stupid and I was like, ‘All right,’ ” she says. “But when you’re a mom, it’s like, ‘No, no, I’m really trying!’ ”

ETA: ABC has an article up of how Ginger will celebrate Mother’s Day….

Mother’s Day will be extra special for ABC News chief meteorologist and current “Dancing With the Stars” contestant Ginger Zee this year.

It’s her first as a mom, after giving birth in December to her child with husband Ben Aaron, a son named Adrian.

She plans to spend time with her baby boy on Sunday when she’s not rehearsing for “Dancing With the Stars.”

“We’ll do breakfast or something with the baby and, you know, we’ll do everything we possibly can. We organize it so that I can spend as much time with him,” Zee told ABC News.

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. :-)

More Information On Alexander Jean’s Summer 2016 “Head High” Tour

Below is part of an official PR Newswire press release of Alexander Jean’s new tour which we previously reported on here. Note that it’s called “Head High”. To see why, read on….

Alexander Jean, singer-songwriter duo featuring BC Jean and Mark Ballas, will embark on their first U.S. national tour titled “Head High,” sponsored by Nicorette® and NicoDerm® CQ®. The “Head High” title for the tour comes from the first song Mark and BC wrote together, which led to the creation of Alexander Jean. The lyric embodies strength, motivation and inspiration to never give up throughout life’s ups and downs. In conjunction with Alexander Jean’s debut EP release, also titled “Head High” and due on June 3, the tour kicks off on June 17 in Santa Ana, California, and will run through July 20, concluding in San Francisco, California. Alexander Jean’s current single, “Thief,” recently hit #5 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart, following up their debut single, “Roses And Violets,” which hit #1 on iTunes’ Singer/Songwriter chart; and #6 on iTunes’ Overall Chart. The duo, recently named “KIIS FM Next Up Artist of the Week,” made their South By Southwest (SXSW) debut this year, and also performed at BMI’s annual “Snow Ball” event at Sundance. Alexander Jean has also been chosen to perform at the 3rd Annual L.A. GRAMMY Showcase to be held May 17 at The Fonda Theatre.

Alexander Jean has performed live on the West Coast in Los Angeles to sold out audiences at The Viper Room, Hotel Café, Room 5 and No Name; in San Francisco at Feinstein’s at The Nikko; and in San Diego at the House of Blues. Says Aidin Vaziri of the San Francisco Chronicle: “The….duo comes with a serious Top 40 pedigree…together, they come up with a pleasing pop-rock-soul hybrid that weaves together eclectic influences…” In Style says: “The duo…specialize in a brand of infectious pop-rock-soul….and listeners have noticed…”

The “Head High” tour is sponsored by Nicorette® and NicoDerm® CQ® in relation to the “What’s Your Why?™” campaign. With the help of NicoDerm® CQ®, and behavioral support, Mark Ballas has been smoke-free for over two years. Now, Mark works with Nicorette® and NicoDerm® CQ® to share his “why” for quitting smoking so he can help inspire people to get the support they need to quit.
