Showing off his tap skills, and throwing in some krumping & twerking:

Court’s thoughts: He’s got personality for DAYS – and that smile of his is just contagious 🙂 He seems to have a good grasp of stage presence, he’s very athletic, and his tap/jazz/modern technique seems pretty well-honed; my only concern is that he is one of a few junior pros that is not cross-trained in ballroom. Since we don’t really know yet just how ballroom-centric this show is going to end up being, his lack of ballroom training may not even be an issue…or it might be.  Who knows. Source assures me that “what he lacks in ballroom training, he more than makes up for in personality!” I hope he has a strong pro that excels at teaching kids and can help him pick up on any ballroom quickly.  But I’m excited that we have him in the cast – he’s just such a bright spot 🙂

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, baker, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.

DWTS 24 Erika Jayne Talks On Dancing And The Real Housewives On “Watch What Happens Live” – Highlights, Photos

The Daily Mail has some gorgeous photos of Erika Jayne on “Watch What Happens Live” yesterday. They also interviewed her on Dancing With The Stars and The Real Housewives and the differences in doing them. More below and at the link.

‘You look like you’ve lost weight that you didn’t need to lose from Dancing With The Stars,’ Andy told Erika, who paired her blouse with black pants and high heels.

‘Well, I am smaller. So it’s a great side effect of the job, so thank you,’ Erika smiled happily, later joking that while she ‘lost weight’ on the dance show ‘I beef up during Housewives.’

Asked which show was harder, she called them ‘two completely different exhaustive processes,’ and laughed: ‘Dancing With The Stars is physical pain — Real Housewives is mental pain!’

Asked about her first night dancing, she said: ‘I mean … it’s OK.’

And as for the judges’ harsh scores of 24 points out of 40 for her — insisting she does not think she was ‘robbed’ — she said: ‘That’s OK too. You have to remember it’s your first time out there. It’s week one.’

She was pleased when host Andy, 48, told her he did not think she was too raunchy in her performance, while one male caller also told her: ‘If you’ve got it, flaunt it — raunch it, baby!’

Pamela Anderson Talks About Tristan MacManus And DWTS On The Ellen Show, More Tidbits

It’s a Dancing With The Stars holiday and PureDWTS reader Lois puts it’s all into perspective with this fun ditty for the premiere tonight…

THE DANCING WITH THE STARS TRAIN!

All aboard! The train is leaving the station
Chug, chugging along to its final destination

The All Stars are in their Sunday finery best
Who of the thirteen will pass the final test

Along for the ride Bruno, Carrie Ann, and Len
When will they raise the paddle of the first ten

The ballroom is cheering, the train is inside
The shimmery, sparkly show opens with pride

Our eyes wide at precisely the hour of 8 o’clock
We get into the dancing mode, oh it will rock

Emmy winner Tom Bergeron says for all to hear
This is Dancing With The Stars, it is finally here

Brooke Burke takes her place with her co host
Congratulations Tom, well deserved, we boast

The All Stars ascend, to thunderous loud cheers
All thirteen trying to shake off nerves and fears

Their heels, dancing shoes, steps to the beat
Oh we are in for a dazzling, raz-ma-taz treat!

The train pulls out, in salute the whistles blow
It is Dancing With the Stars, its on with the show!

Written by Lois A Troutman, September 24, 2012
DANCING WITH THE STARS ALL STARS IS FINALLY HERE!
WITH GUSTO, WE STAND UP, WE GIVE A ROUSING CHEER!

Thanks Lois! Well said! And with that said, Dancettes, below is Pamela Anderson on The Ellen Show today prepping us even more for tonight. She says Tristan sweats in a heart shape. LOL So cute!

Also, below is a bite from Nightline where host Tom Beregeon talks about Pamela.

“DWTS” host Tom Bergeron told “Nightline” that he recently asked the former “Baywatch” babe about her celibacy vow, which she made last month.

“I guess she thought it would give her a competitive edge,” Bergeron said. “And so I happened to see her yesterday in the hall and I mentioned to her that I had been asked about her vow of celibacy and over her shoulder, with her back to me, she went, ‘I’m already off the wagon.’”

A few weeks before the “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” premiere, which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, the 45-year-old Anderson told People magazine that she had “sworn off men until November,” when the competition ends.

Anderson was eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars,” Season 10, in May 2010 and returns tonight for the show’s 15th season, alongside Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, Bristol Palin and Emmitt Smith, among others.

“We’ve got everybody on the show who’s been here before, many of whom have won it before, I’m really excited about it,” Bergeron said. “I do think that each of them knows that this particular Mirror Ball trophy, however kitschy it might be, there’s a certain status among fans of the show for coming into a season of all stars and walking away with that one.”

NOTE: Tune into “Nightline” tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET as ABC’s David Wright sits down with Tom Bergeron and members of the cast to talk about the show behind the scenes. HERE is a preview you don’t want to miss.
