I just want to start by saying that the Hough siblings are two of the most talented people on earth! Both Derek & Julianne are amazing dancers, and now they both have launched their musical careers too. And don’t let me forget their fellow dance friend, Mark Ballas who is also a part of the Ballas Hough Band. These three are incredibly talented!
Here’s an interview Derek Hough did for Reality Chat recently where he talks about the fact that he and Mark Ballas grew up together in London. (Who knew?) Then he tells of the fact that the band goes across the street after the live results show of Dancing With the Stars and performs live at The Grove in Los Angeles. What I wouldn’t give to be at one of those performances!
Here’s a cute interview with Tom Bergeron, the Emmy-nominated host of Dancing With the Stars. He has written a book called I’m Hosting as Fast as I Can and went on Hollywood 411 to talk about it.
He gives us a humorous story about Lawrence Taylor’s exit from the show and about the fact that he almost didn’t agree to host DWTS at all! I can’t even imagine the show without him, can you?
After last week’s live results Dancing With the Stars show, Ty Murray & dance partner Chelsea Hightower stopped to talk a bit about their performance last week and about how they feel about Lawrence Taylor’s elimination. They tell us that they’ll be doing a salsa this week…even though Ty says that the only thing he knows about it is that he eats it with chips…
Last night, we saw Steve-O get he boot on Dancing With the Stars. But he and his dance partner Lacey Schwimmer were up bright and early this morning to talk to the folks on GMA about their elimination from the competition. The interviewer told him that he saw a whole different side to Steve-O during his time on the show. Steve-O was pretty cool about it when he said that he actually is a different person, now that he’s sober.
Lacey told them that Steve-O taught her amazing water bottle tricks….I’m not to sure I want to know what they are. But she said that he worked harder than almost any of her students ever has. Check this out:
All that dance practice definitely works up a healthy appetite and Dancing With the Stars dancers Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas are no exception. The paparazzi took some cool photos of them this week as they took a break from dance practice to go to Hamburger Haven in Beverly Hills.
You can just get a glimpse of Shawn’s mom, who went with them to lunch, but she definitely was there. Shawn is still only 17 years old. That’s too young for a person to be on set without a parent or guardian present. I think Shawn just looks like such a sweet girl. She has that wholesome look about her. And she sure is learning to be a pretty good dancer too!
That’s right, you read that right. In this clip, we get to see Lacey Schwimmer from Dancing With the Stars ask some fun questions of her dance partner Steve-O. She tells him that she was freaked out when he asked her to staple “Vote for Steve-O and Lacey” to his body!! She also asks him about things he thinks will surprise the audience about him, and more.
Then, stay with it through a couple of previews, because then comes a hilarious Tracy Uhlman impression of DWTS judge Len Goodman. By Jove, I think she’s got it!
