Dancing With The Stars News: 27 June 2015

Dancing With The Stars News: 27 June 2015 According to “Us Weekly”:  Recent Mirrorball Trophy winner Rumer Willis fractured her right foot on Wednesday and is in a walking-cast.  She says it isn’t a really bad injury but that she does have to rest the foot and recover in order to continue on the DWTS Live! Perfect 10 tour.  She thinks she’ll be able to dance again toward the end of the 40-city tour.  Meanwhile, she’s excited to sing for fans whenever she can on the tour, which is scheduled to end on August 11.

P.S.  If you want to know more about the life of a ballroom dancer in the 1930s/40s, please check out my book, “Dancing in the Stars: Carroll Webster, International Dance Luminary of Vaudeville and Hollywood,” available from https://www.createspace.com/5311269.  Some readers report back, with comments such as: “It’s a fascinating story!  I learned so much about a dancer’s life on the road and how this man’s life worked into the history of the times and with famous people.  I loved it—it’s great!  Well done!”  Thank you!  Enjoy. And don’t forget that our dancers are on the road and on the high seas.  See whether they’re coming to a city near you....

Dancing With The Stars News: 25 June 2015

Dancing With The Stars News: 25 June 2015   When interviewed right after the win, Rumer thanked her mom for rallying so many people behind her and Val.  Val said, “We didn’t have a million followers,” seeming to indicate that certain others did.  He’s glad to have his name “written down as a contributing member of a wonderful show and to be recognized as part of the family.” He’s also glad for the timing of the win, to have won with Rumer instead of earlier with someone else. Rumer recently got a new tattoo—on her left arm, it appeared to me, as a reminder of her DWTS experience.  The tattoo is a sketch of one of her performances.  She said on Instagram, “Thank you @dr_woo_ssc for this beautiful art. I got this as a reminder that what we are searching for can only be found within yourself….not from your job, how much money you make, who your dating, how many followers you have. The value and love you have for yourself can only come from within and I am so grateful to have had such an incredible experience to help me understand that.”  In addition, ballroom dancing has become her dancing regime.  Of it, she said to People’s TV Watch,”I just found such a love for dancing. If anybody would love to just feel great, not just physically but you want to feel such confidence, just go and take ballroom dancing class! I love it more than any kind of workout.” (http://www.people.com/article/rumer-willis-dancing-stars-tattoo-inside-story?om_mid=_BVhqdPB9C4D8Ex&om_swid=AA6cAm&cid=emailday_062115) According to www.abc.go.com, Rumer will be a part of many of the shows on the Dancing with the Stars: Live! Perfect 10 Tour this summer.  She said, “Val and I were lucky enough to have incredible fans that supported us throughout the entire show, and they are the reason we won. I can’t wait to meet the fans and perform for them live. My other passion is music, and I’m looking forward to singing live during the show and accompanying the best dancers in the world.”   Noah said, “I couldn’t have asked for more” in making the DWTS finals.   In an interview with “Men’s Health” mag, as the winner of their first Ultimate Guy contest (2014) and a finalist in the spring 2015 DWTS competition, he said, “Making it to the finals was a surprise and an honor, so that was perfect. Everyone asks me if I will dance after this. And I say, ‘No, because I’m not a dancer.’ People are still saying to me, ‘You should’ve...
