Dancing with the Stars Season 25 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year once again folks. And sans Derek and Mark, I can’t say I’m terribly enthused…unless we can get Sasha or Sharna a MBT this time around. 😉

If you have something to contribute, PLEASE PROVIDE a SOURCE – by that I mean a link. We appreciate the help, but it needs to be sourced, otherwise it’s just a distraction. Thx.

Derek recently said, very firmly, that he’s not coming back. Since he’s committed to NBC I would assume that to be solid, despite what he says about Celine Dion. 😉 I’m fairly sure I heard Mark say that he is out as well, but I’m not as sure about that. Peta has started playing the Chmerkovskiy salary negotiation game – all three (Peta, Val and Maks) have implied they “might” be back. Peta pretty much outright said if she gets a good partner. I have a question mark by Jenna with the word out because I think it hinges on SYTYCD. Based on her pick, I suspect she’ll be available.

ETA2: It’s Pro Reveal Day on GMA!! Watch this space down here and I’ll be updating (or trying to) as we go!

We think Mark is back based on the silhouette!!  Pray…our only male choreographic hope sans Derek!!

Gee, I had forgotten how lame GMA is. :::rolls eyes:::  This is why I watch CBS This Morning. This show is crap.

Thank you Jesus. Mark is back. Please give him a decent partner. oOooo…sounds like they lured him back with his partner.

LOL to Bruno!!

Shit. Looks like Sasha might have gotten hosed. Alan lovers got their way for some mysterious reason. Let’s hope he lives up to the hype. I have my doubts.

There might still be a pro to be revealed, since we appear to be one short….

ETA: With this latest update from ET, it looks like we now have a full roster of pros.  Sorry, Jenna/Allison/Sasha fans. Cheryl fans, rejoice! 🙂 -Court-

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 24 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year once again folks. There are other sites out there mimicking us, but none of them that I would bank on just yet.

Which means that we know Derek is out. Also, according to a Good Morning America announcement today, Maks and Peta are dancing. If you have something to contribute, PLEASE PROVIDE a SOURCE – by that I mean a link. We appreciate the help, but it needs to be sourced, otherwise it’s just a distraction. Thx.

ETA1: And Tony confirms he’s out for this season.  Not gonna lie, I’m disappointed – he was always so kind to his partners, moreso than some other pros that will likely get a spot…-Court-

ETA2: Witney and Sharna are confirmed per People Magazine as is Val…but I do wonder if they are making the same silly assumption that others do re: the poster. ~Heidi

ETA3: According to People, Jenna is OUT! ~ Vogue

ETA4: Vogue again. Gleb is IN again according to this interview. YAYYY! Can you tell I’m excited?! 🙂 Thanks to @GleekyZ for sending.

ETA5: And in the first development this season that actually has me excited, an old favorite returns…yes kids, She of the Awesome Boobage is back…Kym 😀 -Court-

ETA6: Not sure on this, but, according to @DWTSGossip, Allison is out. I think I am going to cry if true. I love her. – Vogue

ETA7: Confirmed – Keo is back. Kinda thought he might be, since I think he was only set aside last season in order to bring Gleb back on board. -Court-

ETA8: Source confirms that Sasha, Lindsay, & Emma are all IN.  Doing some extreme vetting over here, folks…-Court-

ETA9: According to ET, Mark and Karina are out too. Dang. And to anyone thinking this site hates Mark, you couldn’t be more WRONG. ~ Vogue

ETA10: Not sure if anyone is really still watching this post, but it looks like Jenna is also out as a troupe member this season. To address some of the chatter on Twitter – no, we don’t know what Sasha’s talking about; no, we don’t know if Mark is back in as a surprise; no, we still don’t have a confirmation on Artem’s status. We’ll share if we get any updates…-Court-

Dancing With The Stars Louis Van Amstel Marries Joshua Lancaster In Sundance, Utah

Congratulations to Dancing With The Stars pro Louis Van Amstel and health coach Joshua Lancaster. Sunday the two were married in Sundance, Utah in a beautiful winter setting. From People….

ETA: To read more and see some beautiful photos of Louis’ wedding, see US Weekly.

“We wanted a winter wedding,” van Amstel tells PEOPLE exclusively about choosing to wed in Sundance, Utah.

Lancaster, 27, and van Amstel, 44, met in 2009 at a bar in Los Angeles, where van Amstel lives while shooting DWTS, and dated long distance for four years before Lancaster moved from Austin to Utah with van Amstel.

“Sundance happens to be one of the private, romantic traditions between the two of us, so it seems only fitting to host the wedding there,” says Lancaster.

We had a whole group of wedding party in mumus and Uggs on Sunday morning to stamp down the snow,” says van Amstel. “We wanted it to be an experience, not just a decorated room.”

One of van Amstel’s best friends, Dawson’s Creek actress Mary-Margaret Humes, served as his best man.

More at People.

This is the lawn where we are getting married. We have a lot of work to do. Clearing all that snow in two days…haha! ❄️?

“We wanted to be surrounded by good friends,” says van Amstel. “I guess it’s the European in me, but I didn’t want anything fake. That’s why Josh and I works so well. He’s completely real.”

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

The DWTS Season 23 Partnerships – Who’s Dancing with Who?? Guesses?

As of this moment – Friday Night – we don’t have any confirmed pairings. But we do have a few good ideas based on DancingABC clues, history, rumor, twitter…and just plain guessing. 🙂 So, Vogue and I are going to put it down on paper – what we think, guesses we’ve seen on twitter, what we would like…all of the above. Just for fun. We’ll find out on Tuesday for sure, but write it down now so we can all see how we do. 😉 We reserve the right to edit as we get more information…or reality sets in through leaks and such. 😉

Here are the confirmed pros (I’m including Mark Ballas cuz I think he’s in, as does @DWTSGossip, even though we have no “confirmation”) – keep in mind there could be more. George Pennachio seems to think so. When I have a partner next to a pros name, that’s someone that’s been confirmed by DWTSGossip or a leak. If there’s a question mark, I just ain’t sure.

The Men
Derek – Marilu Henner
Maks – Amber Rose
Val – Laurie Hernandez
Gleb – ??
Sasha – Terra Jole
Artem – Maureen McCormick

The Women
Lindsay – Calvin Johnson ??
Witney – Vanilla Ice ??
Emma – Rick Perry
Sharna – James Hinchcliffe
Allison – Babyface Edmonds
Jenna – Jake Austin ??

Vogue:
Derek – I haven’t a clue but, he’s looking for his Cleopatra? Hmmmm…..
Mark – I think it might be the new rumor of Beverley Mitchell who is said to be in talks and not signed yet. I’m having serious Willow Shields flashbacks too and I’m loving it.
Maks – Amber Rose! We’ve seen a picture of them together and then there is this snap.
Val – Ok, I’m going with Lauren Henderson for all the reasons in Court’s rumor post. Plus, George P says there is more than one Olympian dancing.
Gleb– My guess is JoJo Fletcher and what a beautiful pairing this would make. I love the video in this post.
Sasha – Terra Jole! He teased his partner has a show on Wednesday’s and guess what? “Little Women” airs on Wednesday nights. I can’t wait to see how he is inspired from her and he’s happy and excited which makes me happy and excited too.
Artem – Legendary Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick. One of my wishes forever and they even look a like. And shame on his fans for having such a meltdown on this being she’s 60. “60” is only a number. Just ask Jennifer Grey, Bill Engvall, and Tommy Chong made it or almost made it to the finals.

Lindsay – Well, it can’t be Tim Tebow like some fans speculate on since he wasn’t born in Georgia. I’m going to guess that it might be Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson since he WAS born in Georgia. Hubby will be so happy if we have another football player dancing. My Dad will be watching too in heaven. I just know it.
Witney – Not sure on this one (more below)
Emma – Is she paired with a Republican? If so, I’m hoping for someone tall, dark, and handsome…..someone like Donald Trump Jr.! Can you imagine? Ssssssssss!!
Sharna – Ryan Lochte because I think they would look striking together. Then again, Sharna says she’s in Texas, so, maybe Witney has Ryan instead? Geez, this show keeps us guessing.
Allison – Babyface Edmonds! Coupled with Allison’s creativity and his ability in making Grammy winning songs and videos, they will be off the hook as Lea posted in comments. He’s so handsome and has infinite amounts of class, swagger, and charm too.
Jenna – Jake T. Austin. I just think they’d make a great fit. What a great first partner for Jenna too. I hope she shines out there like she did on the last DWTS Tour.

Heidi:
Derek – the only guesses I’ve seen have been Lindsey Stirling and various olympians. Lindsey is going on a world tour, which kinda leaves her out. Olympians? Who knows? It would be fun if he had Mckayla Maroney…she of the “sass”. 😉 Beverley Mitchell is the type that Derek used to get all the time, early on – married mommies.  But since Mark hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, maybe she’s dancing with him, since last word was that she was “in talks”. Heh…Court just texted me to listen to Becca Tilley’s snapchat to listen for Derek’s voice – she’s with Jojo Fletcher doing a shoot today. Kinda sounds like him, kinda doesn’t….I’ll get the video in a bit.
Mark – Personally, I would bet Mark is the one with the Olympian, but I don’t really know. I’m going to say Laurie Hernandez. Or Beverley Mitchell. 🙂
Maks – I kinda thought that Gleb had Amber Rose, but I guess she’s with Maks, based on that photo.
Gleb – No clue…. How about Emma Samms?
Sasha – Yeah, gotta go with Terra Jole.
Val – Well, it’s gotta be someone with dance experience…Emma Samms had training until she was 15 but that hardly counts. This is an interesting question: with Derek, Maks and Gleb all back, will Val still rate the ringer?? Hmmmm…If I had my way he would get the model who can’t move. But who would that be? I don’t think he has the Olympian..perhaps someone we don’t know about yet?
Artem – Maureen McCormick, who, judging by the photos, I wanna be when I grow up. Dang, woman! Lookin’ good!

Lindsay – Seems pretty certain she has Calvin Johnson.
Witney – Ryan Lochte…although this could be BAD. Neither are the sharpest tools in the shed if you get my meaning.
Emma – My first thought was republican…but not a weasely Trump boy. Ugh. Spare us all more of that drivel. I’m thinking someone who’s been around a while and who isn’t in prison (that was an obscure Tom Delay reference for you young’uns). 😀 But if not a republican, then what’s the deal with the Elephant? I actually looked up “Unforgettable Elephant” because DancingABC uses that word in their tweet and got Martyn Colbeck, an award winning wildlife photographer. Much more palatable than a politician. 😉 Someone else on twitter mentioned Jack Hanna to DWTSGossip which is a much more relevant celeb than Martyn.
Sharna – She’s been spotted in Texas, where the speculation brings us back to racecar driver James Hinchcliffe – why yes, there is a big race in Texas tonight and there is apparently a Arrow Electronics fire suit in the background of her periscope according to Courtney’s – I don’t even know what that is. 🙂 Could be another driver, I suppose…definitely going to say James or another racer.
Allison – seems pretty certain that she’s dancing with Babyface Edmonds
Jenna – yep, going to agree with Jake T. Austin.

Dancing with the Stars Season 23 – PRO WATCH!!

Welp. I must say, my snark is extremely rusty because it’s been on vacation. 🙂 I’ll see if I can whip something out before the end of this post.

So, you may have seen in an earlier post that Val blessed us with several nuggets that only a C-bro can knock out, strongly implying (well, out right proclaiming) that he’s already connected with his partner. Hey, if you don’t have choreo, you work with what you have. 😉 Plus he’s not going to go “Hollywood” (like his brother and everyone else on this show – as if it were a bad thing – it’s called a CAREER after dancing).

I am working on the assumption (despite what he says) that Derek is out for good. I think the only way we see him again is if he gets an unexpected hole in his schedule and he’s afraid of boredom and they offer him a shit ton of money. And this *could* happen, although I wouldn’t count on it, since he was talking about “fun projects” in his off time. That said, “Singin’ in the Rain” has been delayed from late 2016 – early 2017 to solidly 2017. No date yet…because they don’t have a theater, because Broadway is doing well per Derek. This means, if we don’t see him in the Spring 2017 season, he won’t be on the show until 2018 at the earliest. Keep in mind, also, that I’m talking about him competing. He could certainly do some pro dances. Kinda surprised he hasn’t popped up on SYTYCD yet, honestly. Non-compete clause?? Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 22 – PRO WATCH!!

It’s that time of year again and who knows what kind of funky will go down this season. Will Derek finally hang up his DWTS shoes? Will Artem get hosed again in favor of the ever annoying Val? Will Sasha finally get his chance? Will Sharna continue to follow in the wrong footsteps, making unwise statements? Who will take Allison’s spot? These questions and more will hopefully be answered soon. 🙂

I don’t want to hear about Jenna being dance captain. I think that is likely decided among the dancers themselves and I doubt it has any significance in regard to the show – maybe she’ll be a pro, maybe she won’t. Derek and Julianne’s dance captain was someone you’ve likely never heard of. So what?

Kristyn Burtt claims that the pros have been told rehearsals start on February 22 – it remains to be seen if that is true or if it actually happens. Last season was so…fluid…that we’ll have to wait and see. I do think we’ll start to hear stuff from those with a lack of ability to keep their mouths shut. 🙂 There are some Derek fans that worry his media sweep happening next week will include an announcement about his status. The media sweep is because of Disneyland 60 – if an announcement happens, it will likely be that he’s out. If he says nothing or hems and haws, it might be that he’s in. He’s a tough call, as usual Read more..

DWTS Karina Smirnoff, Sasha Farber, Anna Trebunskaya, And More To Dance In “Agent Carter” Season 2

Stay tuned for Episode 8 of “Agent Carter”. Entertainment Weekly is reporting Louis Van Amstel has choreographed a dance that will be featured. Not only that, several pros from Dancing With The Stars and other dancers will be performing. Read on for details. I don’t watch this show, but, I may have to watch this episode.

Here’s the deal: “Episode 8 ends with a cliffhanger where Peggy and Jarvis [James D’Arcy] get in big trouble and are knocked out,” executive producer Michele Fazekas tells EW. “Episode 9 begins with a dream sequence that starts in black and white — by the way, [Atwell] was made for black and white. She looks like Rita Hayworth. She looks spectacular.”

Then, in true Wizard of Oz fashion, everything goes into color, leading into a full-on Broadway musical dance number that features an original song from lyricist David Zippel and composer Christopher Lennertz, in conjuction with executive producers Tara Butters and Fazekas.

Choreographed by Dancing with the Stars’ Louis van Amstel, the sequence features a number of pros from DWTS, including van Amstel, Dmitry Chaplin, Karina Smirnoff, Anna Trebunskaya, Sasha Farber and Damian Whitewood. Dancers Robert Roldan, Malene Ostergaard, Amanda Balen, Serge Onik, Jenya Shatilova, Lacey Escabar, Alla Kocherga and Paul Kirkland also join them.

Dancing with the Stars Season 21, Week 7 – LIVE BLOG (Spoilers)

Time for the long awaited team dances!! Whoo Hoo…kinda. Hoping it’s not too predictable. I mean, Val’s team has the dark, edgy song. How unique…only not. At all.

Who am I looking forward to? I’m hoping Bindi can pull of an AT with a bit of edge. I’m curious to see how an oft-used-for-a-Paso song fits with Nick and Sharna’s AT. Praying that Alexa does well with Mark’s Paso and that she’s safe this week…but at the same time, don’t really want to see Hayes go either. VERY curious to see if Val has fixed Tamar’s partnering problem in their foxtrot – that should have a lot of in-hold work and she tends to stiffen up when in hold. Now that they’re back to doing ballroom, I’m very curious to see if Andy’s streak of decent dancing holds up. NOT looking forward to Louis on All Access – way too b*tchy to most other than Val. Anyway…

T-minus 30 minutes…

Team dance started well and went rapidly downhill. Meh.

People won’t give Nick the “real”?? Hmmm…calm the ego, son.

Nick started kinda wonky but he got it together fairly quickly….they were hard on him for a reason though. He has a bit of a stiffness about him. Not bad though.

Up yer game, Hayes. You can do it!! Read more..
