PureDWTS Season 28’s Mary Wilson Passes Away Suddenly

Sorry to report that we’re going to need yet another commemorative star on the dance floor next season – season 28 contestant Mary Wilson has passed away, per People:

Mary Wilson, a founding member of The Supremes, has died. She was 76.

On Monday evening, Wilson — who made up the first arrangement of The Supremes alongside Diana Ross and Florence Ballard — died at her home in Las Vegas, her publicist Jay Schwartz confirmed to multiple outlets.

Wilson’s cause of death was not immediately clear but Schwartz added in a statement to CNN that she “passed away suddenly.”

According to Schwartz, funeral services for Wilson will be private due to restrictions and protocols amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but there will be a public memorial later this year.

I still maintain that Mary had a lot more to show us on her season, and that the judges messed up big time when they opted to save Ray Lewis and send Mary home first. Her “Baby Love” foxtrot was darling:

And she and Brandon seemed to really have a nice bond, which showed in her dances (even when she maybe didn’t exactly remember her choreo):

Rest in power, Mary.  You left us far too soon 🙁

PureDWTS Season 7’s Cloris Leachman Passes Away at 94

So today we lost another former contestant – season 7’s boisterous, sassy senior, Cloris Leachman. Per ABC News:

“It’s been my privilege to work with Cloris Leachman, one of the most fearless actresses of our time,” her longtime manager, Juliet Green, said in a statement. “There was no one like Cloris. With a single look she had the ability to break your heart or make you laugh ’till the tears ran down your face. You never knew what Cloris was going to say or do and that unpredictable quality was part of her unparalleled magic.”

“She loved her children and her grandchildren ferociously. A lifelong vegetarian, she was a passionate advocate for animal rights,” Green added. “The family requests that any donations in her name be made to PETA or Last Chance for Animals.”

Green said Leachman died of natural causes in Encinitas, California.

To my knowledge, at 82 years old, she was the oldest contestant we ever had, and one of the funniest – I’ll never forget her hiking her leg up on the judges’ table during a critique to try and make eyes at Len 🙂 I wish I could find a video of her in the season 7 hip-hop group dance, which treated us to Cloris with gold chains and a grill, mean-muggin’ in the background with Corky as the rest of the cast danced, but these dances will have to do – god, I had forgotten how entertaining she was, even when she wasn’t really sure of her choreography:

Godspeed, Cloris. If there’s a season 30, I had better see her name in a commemorative star on the dance floor next to Florence & Valerie’s 🙂 Kinda sad that Corky’s only 2 former partners on the show have died…we’ve now lost #TeamFlorky and #TeamClorky 🙁

DWTS Season 30 Cast Rumors – Hilaria Baldwin to Dance, Tyra Banks Excited On The Idea?

OK Magazine is reporting Hilaria Baldwin is joining Dancing With The Stars next season. In case you don’t know, Hilaria has been all over the news recently when claims surfaced about the authenticity of her Spanish heritage. I guess Tyra is really excited on the idea (-_-)? Below is more on the new rumor. Let us know what you think in comments.

Don’t expect Hilaria Baldwin to disappear into the shadows just because claims surfaced about the authenticity of her Spanish heritage. The troubled wife of Alec Baldwin is looking to extend her 15 minutes of fame by joining Dancing With the Stars, OK! has learned.

“Hilaria has always wanted to be famous. She is one of the most thirsty wives of a celebrity in the business. At red carpet events she seeks out the press and isn’t shy about posting half-naked pictures on social media to get attention. Now, she wants to stay in the spotlight and look at opportunities, including Dancing with the Stars,” a source exclusively tells OK!. “Within 24 hours of the embarrassing accusations, Hilaria was on the phone with The New York Times. Don’t expect this to end any time soon. She is shameless. Hilaria has big plans in 2021.”

“This is TV gold for Tyra Banks and Dancing With the Stars. Tyra has made the show exciting again and isn’t afraid to cast controversial people on it,” an ABC insider reveals. “Hilaria is exactly the sort of star Tyra wants. They will let her wear Spanish costumes when she performs and even cook her paella backstage.”

Dancing with the Stars Season 29, THE FINALE – LIVE BLOG

Would you believe that I just NOW realized that I forgot to do a “Who’s Dancing What” post this week?? Well, it’s true. That was the state of my work life all of last week until Thursday night when I just went to bed exhausted. I realized it even more when I read Courtney’s Power Rankings post and realized it was one I hadn’t read before. Good news is…deadline is past and I’m on vacation all week. 🙂

T-minus…whatever. 🙂

Forgot to mention for anyone not paying attention. Derek’s deal with ABC is clearly paying off – he’s hosting a Thanksgiving Day Xmas special with Julianne and it doing TWO songs with Hayley on Disney’s Holiday Family Singalong. And he’s once again in People’s Sexiest Man issue, looking fine, I might add. 🙂

Love the opening number!  Kinda pissed that the shafted Daniella and Pasha on camera time. Two best dancers on the show right now. Not counting Derek of course.

I see we’ve reverted to the Tyrant walk out while the judges applaud her. Ridiculous.

Clearly wardrobe has run out of the correct flesh tone on the costumes of all the women. Geez.

Kaitlyn going first with her favorite dance.  She picked the Argentine Tango.  Pretty good choice, I think.

I love that bead curtain. Pull your butt in, girl. Gorgeous dress. Still a bit soft, lack of attack. Great dance, that is my only complain – the lack of attack that is.

All the judges standing, Derek calls her a true contender. She met the high standard they’ve held her to. Bruno is panting. Literally. Says it was sensuous. Says it was better this time – I would agree with that. CAI says she’s an unforgettable, exquisite dancer, she challenged herself. Spare me on the BS of that being one of her top three dances of all time. She says that every fucking season and it’s always BS. Nothing against Kaitlyn – love her – but please cut the crap.

Scores: After the break. BTW…Artem has the cutest baby in the world. No lie. So extremely cute it’s almost not fair to all the other babies in the world. 🙂

Scores: 10 10, 10 for a total of 30.

It used to be (in the good old days), that they would put the potential winners of the show dancing first and last.  That changed with the new producers, to a degree, but I think Nelly going second makes it more likely he won’t win the show. No guarantees though.

I really like Nelly, and I’ve voted for him in the past (although not last week because you should only vote for ONE person at this point), but I don’t think he SHOULD win.  I think he could, though. That’s the nature of the show. Anyway, he’s doing is samba, which is a good choice for him, as he tends to do well with those dances that allow groove.

I dare say he’s still not a great dancer, but he’s doing much better this time than he did the first time. And hell, he’s having a ball. There’s a lot to be said for that. He’s just so engaging. And daniella  has been my girl crush since I saw her on Derek’s tour.

Bruno says he has spontaneity and a natural feel and is engaging to watch. Watching him is fun. Agreed. CAI says his journey has been fascinating, reminds her that dance is more than just technique, but about the joy of life. Derek agrees with CAI, says the show is about moments and he is a moment maker. He makes people feel good.

Scores: 9, 9, 9 for a total of 27.

So the scores for the remaining contestants will be interesting. If everyone else gets tens, the judges are at least trying to give the better dancers a better shot at the trophy. I expect them to do this. I also expect Nelly to get tens on his freestyle, figuring if the other contestants can’t overcome the three points, then Nelly deserves to win.  He’d be the people’s champion. Not the worst person to ever win – that is still reserved for Bones. By a mile.

Happy to see Jeannie Mai in the ballroom!

Nev is up next. He’s redoing the Swan Lake dance. Pretty good choice, but it will depend on what he does for his freestyle.

He took manscaping to an extreme it appears. :-)He didn’t scape, he shaved.  His arms are still  a bit weird at times, but I think he’s the best dancer in the group. That’s a great dance. No obvious mistakes. Great job.

CAI says that was perfection once again. Loves that watching him is a treat. Technically and artistically amazing. Derek loves the change at the beginning, says it was so fantastic. He can dance. Bruno was flying. Created dramatic structure, more dramatic and he killed it.

Are those abs or ribs??  🙂

Scores: 10, 10, 10 for a total of 30.

Justina going last. Wonder if she goes last on the second round.  She picked her cha cha from week one.  Good choice – right in her wheel house.

Gah, still hate the stairs. So much time wasted. Other than that, this is a fun dance. She’s not the accomplished dancer that Nev is, but then she’s not got the experience he does.  This is a fun dance, well done, but not a revelation.

Derek says she explodes with charisma, so sensational. Bruno says she’s a diva latina. Almost too hot to trot. Extra spicy sauces. CAI says she knows how to bring it, she has something – fire. She loves the fire.

Scores: 10, 10, 10 for a total of 30.

And there you have it. Nelly is three points behind everyone else, meaning it would be really interesting if he were to win.

Derek next!! Whoo Hoo. I won’t be typing my thoughts during this dance. I want to watch and enjoy.

I forgot how much I enjoy these retrospectives of the season. Not. 😉  At least it appears we’re only getting one of them instead of four or five.

That was wonderful.  And why did it have to end?? Far too short.  Note, for those not paying attention, Derek also took the track and altered it like he has so many times in the past.  Dang. Why was it so short?? I wanted MORE!! And there is no higher compliment.  He is the Gene/Fred of his generation.

Nelly’s freestyle is up first and it’s designed for him in a great way. Look, extra dancers. Daniella…so amazing. Nelly doing well on the lifts. I really enjoyed this dance. Well done!!

Bruno says Nelly is the king of swag and the king of bling. Empire the musical. Pitched it just right for you. CAI says the partnership is outstanding. Dance was a hybrid and it gives her hope. Derek says it felt like a grammy performance, the ending move was amazing. Ended strong.

Scores: 10, 10, 10 for a total of 30.  This time I agree with the judges on those scores.

Mama Mai!!  Love her. I like this little skit with the celebs. Actually forgot that Jesse was on the show, so there’s that.

Another thing that has happened in the past, but not necessarily since the new producers arrived a few seasons ago, is that they final dance is in the reverse order of the finish.  So, we’ll see.

Kaitlyn is up next with her freestyle.

Love the entrance. Finally a ramp!! I love this song too. I like that she’s going Charleston.  Bit messy exit from one of the lifts and she’ almost got off time afterward but the pulled it together.  I liked how they ended it too.

CAI says that movie is her all time favorite. And Kaitlyn met her expectation. Derek remembers the zoom call and now she’s ascending down from the ceiling. Well done. Bruno loves that she captured the feel of Baz Lurhman. Dazzling.

I like how humble Kaitlyn is. I’ve always liked her.

Scores; 10, 10, 10 for a total of 30. No surprises.

Numbers Update: Right now, there is only about 12.7k votes between Nelly and everyone else, assuming that Justina and Nev both get 30’s, which I believe they will.  That is very few votes.  So, for anyone NOT named Nelly to win, they need for Nelly to not get 12.8k more votes per million votes cast than them, and they need ONE more vote per million votes cast than everyone else (besides Nelly). For Nelly to win, he will have to get 12.8k more votes per million votes cast than all of the other three.

Nev up with Singing in the Rain.  He’ll have a hard time impressing me since I’ve seen Derek doing this several times. Oof, got off time there. This transition is interesting.  Water has been done many times as well.  Um, okay. It was good. But as freestyles go, I’m underwhelmed. What was the point of that last bit.

Derek says you can’t pull off SITR unless you’re a leading man and you are. He compliments Jenna. Bruno says you’re aiming very high, but they were successful. It was inspired. CAI says it was three routines in one.

I was hoping for more but I was rather underwhelmed. That’s the danger in doing a routine like this one – the standard is soooo high. Not to mention that Derek evoked Gene Kelly without even using the music shortly before this one.  Yes, Nev is not a pro…but you take a real risk in using that music. That said, Jenna is a rock star. I’ve always appreciated her choreo and this didn’t change that.

Scores: 10, 10, 10 for a total of 30.

That little judges bit was funny.  Weird that Tyra mentioned “very unpredictable” season just now. Makes me worried. Well, not really. I don’t really have a horse in this race.

Justina already off to a better start than Nev. Dancing alone and owning it. Cameras doing her no favor with the distance.  Oh that lever move was amazing. Okay that was really good, but extremely short. Maybe that’s a sign of how good it was?

Oddly, I found all the freestyles underwhelming except for Nelly’s.  I don’t think that the pandemic prevents them from choreographing exciting routines, so what’s the problem?? I think Nelly and Justina were the best.

The judges are raving. Derek says it was the best freestyle to end the season. They crushed it.

Scores: 10, 10, 10 for a total of 30. Not surprisingly. 🙂

Derek spinning in his chair is giving me life. 🙂

Nelly is actually singing, and he’s doing quite well, once you get used to someone actually singing (see AMAs). Derek said dancing with Daniella is like dancing with a ferrari and she is finally getting a chance to show it.

Hell, it’s almost time!! Where did the hour go??

Tyra is so fucking dramatic. Fail.

Fourth Place: Justina and Sasha.

Third Place: Nelly and Daniella

The winners are: Kaitlyn and Artem.

Think Tyra was shocked, by that gasp?  Well. ON the one hand I’m happy for Artem, but I’m bummed for Jenna. I’m torn.
