Derek Hough Blogs: “Marilu’s Feet Were Killing Her”

Aloha!!

This is one week where Derek’s blog just pisses me off. So, Marilu is hurting pretty badly and it doesn’t make the package? All that does make the package is her talking about how the Charleston should be her dance. This show is just getting worse and worse all the time with the manipulation – wasn’t Jana that they spent a whole package talking about her aches and pains and her touring and all that BS?? ANYONE else injured and we’d had about it ad nauseam – Marilu’s injured we not only don’t hear about it, but she rarely gets Erin face time…which means less camera time than other celebs. You know, the ones they want in the finale.  To top it off, he’s got people telling him back stage that he was “dragging her” – I could tell that kind of pissed him off as well. Jesus – this show has gone to shit.  I sure hope Derek is completely done after this season because I honestly don’t know if I can stomach this kind of shit any more – and all because the squeaky wheels don’t want him to win any more. They must be pretty scared of his fanbase if they have to work this hard to make sure it DOESN’T happen.

Anyway, here’s an excerpt – go to TV Guide to read the whole thing.

Monday night wasn’t the best for us, but I’m very proud of Marilu for what she did and pushing through. They didn’t show it, but Marilu’s feet were killing her last week. It started last Thursday while we were dancing, and Marilu started mentioning that her feet were hurting. There’s a lot of hopping in the Charleston and I don’t think her feet were used to that. They got progressively worse, so much so that she could literally barely walk down the stairs on show day. She had injections and numbing cream. She tried all these different things to no avail. It was just a combination of things. Her feet hurt, her ribs hurt, she broke out into hives one day.
By the time Monday came around, she was in a lot of pain. When you watch the routine, you can really see she was really timid. That dance was honestly pretty good when we first rehearsed it. We were both really excited about it. Having to do the team dance didn’t help either, obviously, and as you saw, she fell over in that. During that move, we were supposed to come together, push off each other, separate, and I kind of guide her. I moved her a little, but if you look closely, she caught her foot and tripped over her feet. I was like, “Are you OK? Are you OK? I’m so sorry.” And she was like, “I’m landed on my butt. I’m totally fine!” That is so Marilu. She wasn’t like, “Aw, man, I’m so bummed I fell.” She was like, “I fell on my butt, I’m good.” Somebody said to me afterward, “Derek, you need to calm down. You’re literally dragging her.” I was like, “Really, guys? Really?”

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. :-)
