Dancing With The Stars Season 22: Coming March 21, 2016!

Dancing With The Stars Updates GOOD NEWS / BAD NEWS Derek Hough: Derek may be getting ready to do a stint on Broadway, so we don’t know whether he’ll be a pro on the show during spring season.   Julianne Hough: According to what I’ve heard, Julianne will NOT return as a judge with her DWTS family each week this season.  She’s getting married pretty soon, and she has many other projects in the works.  Len Goodman will return from England to reclaim his seat at the judges’ table.  It’s possible that she may return for a cameo now and then.  Meanwhile, look for her to cover the March issue of “Redbook.” I think she was on February’s “Cosmopolitan.”   “Grease”:  It’s being said that the “Grease Live” soundtrack is soaring on iTunes and the DVD will be available March 8 at Amazon and Best Buy.  You can preorder the DVD.   Noah Galloway: The talented and inspiring Army veteran, who reached third place in the finals of season 20 with Sharna Burgess, has been visiting and lifting the spirits of hospitalized Army vets. What a great guy!   “Dancing Pros Live”: ATTENTION, Niagara Falls residents and visitors! At the Fallsview Casino Resort, February 18-25, you can see stars Edyta Sliwinska, Cheryl Burke, Gleb Savchenko, and Elena Samodanova, along with dancers from all over the world. The show comes highly recommended.   “Shall We Dance on Ice” will show again on Saturday, February 27 on ABC, starring pros Chelsie Hightower, Dmitry Chaplin, Anna Trebunskaya, and Damian Whitewood, accompanied by former winners Rumer Willis and Meryl Davis with former contestant Charlie White.   Maksim (Maks) and Valentin (Val) Chmerkovskiy: “Our Way!” This summer the brothers will present the story they’ve always wanted to tell about their lives, highlighting their journey and rise through the world of dance. Although no other names are available yet, the show will include many other dancers, likely many from their DWTS family, and be staged by some of the top choreographers. Without a doubt it will wow us with the creativity, elegance, passion, and seduction for which the brothers are well known. And, don’t forget the unparalleled skill and professionalism that we always see. Watch for “Our Way!” to be scheduled at a theater near you and buy tickets early!   Which Celebs Will Dance in Spring Season? The rumors are swirling!

DWTS Val Chmerkovskiy, CBS & Photographer Being Sued for Millions

NEWS: http://www.people.com/article/dancing-stars-val-chmerkovskiy-sued-posting-meme-mocking-girl “Val Chmerkovskiy Sued for Allegedly Posting Meme Mocking Girl with Down Syndrome Posted: 01 Feb 2016 09:46 PM PST People is reporting that a family is suing Dancing With The Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy and CBS. Below is more detail from the People article… A family is suing Val Chmerkovskiy for allegedly sharing a meme that mocks their daughter, who has Down syndrome. According to the lawsuit obtained by PEOPLE, Chmerkovskiy shared a meme of the girl, which includes a photo of her drinking a soda along with the text, “Letting your kid become obese should be considered child abuse.” The lawsuit claims the photo was taken in June 2008 while the girl was at a baseball game without the family’s knowledge. The photographer allegedly posted the photo soon after on his Flickr account with the text, “Everything that’s wrong with America.” The photo eventually became a meme in 2014, and the lawsuit claims that the Dancing with the Stars pro, 29, helped it go viral when he allegedly shared it on his Facebook page in January. The lawsuit says the meme also appeared on cbsnews.com, and is naming CBS as a defendant, as well as the original photographer. “Although we have not yet been served a copy of the complaint, we have removed the photo in question from a gallery that was published in 2011,” a rep for CBS told PEOPLE in a statement. To read more, see People.”   VICKIE’S REACTION: Val merely attempted to promote good health and did not know that the girl has Down Syndrome. Of his own accord three days later he removed the comment.  He’s very much into good health for everyone, especially for children so that they’ll have a fair chance at a bright future. The girl’s family is suing the photographer, CBS, and Val for something like $6 million each, according to what I heard, and something was said about the possibility of settling out of court for at least a few hundred thousand dollars. Seriously? How ridiculous is all that?  If anyone could really be somewhat at fault here, it might be the photographer—but not to such an exaggerated degree.  This is just another frivolous lawsuit.  I suggest that the girl’s parents and their attorney(s) should step back and try to take an objective view of how their actions are representing them; the view from out here is that they are ridiculous, unreasonable, and disgustingly greedy—off the charts.  I also recommend that they should remember and invoke the...

Dancing With The Stars Live! “Dance All Night Tour,” News, Rumors

Dancing With The Stars Live! “Dance All Night Tour” This posting covers news from mainly December and January. My Christmas gift from my family was two tickets and VIP passes to the Live! “Dance All Night” tour performance in Cincinnati for last Sunday, January 24. OMG! I was totally surprised. How wonderful! How exciting! How lucky I am!   On the tour: Pros: Val, Peta, Keo, Sharna, Lindsay, Emma. Troupe: Brittany Cherry, Jenna Johnson, Alan Bersten, Paul Barris, Julz Tocker Special Guest Star: Alek Skarlatos Dances Star and are Choreographed by: The Pros, Alan, Jenna, and Brittany Cherry   VIP ROOM, BEFORE THE SHOW: A repeating video ran of the dancers rehearsing, teaching certain dance moves to viewers, informing us of other tidbits, etc. On the video Emma says that with partners, whether young or much older, it’s all about retaining what she’s teaching and being willing to put yourself out there. To me, Emma and Sharna are always especially engaging. Jenna Johnson: Our first photo opp that day. VIPs’ photos, whether alone or with Jenna, were taken in front of a green wall and then superimposed onto a DWTS set. “I’m Jenna,” she said, offering her hand for a shake. I said, “We know who YOU are, sweetie. I’m Vickie and this is my husband, Bill.” Very sweet and cute. Live! dance captain. Comes across as being confident and strong. This is her second tour. Alan Bersten: Our second photo opp. Walked around the room in loose pants, tennis shoes, a baseball cap turned backwards, and a sleeveless shirt that revealed bulging biceps. Comfortable in any setting and genuinely sweet, like “the boy next door.” Spent two hours in the VIP room talking with fans, taking countless photos with fans (adults and children) and with Jenna in regular and dance-style poses. Was interested in my book, “Dancing in the Stars: Carroll Webster, International Dance Luminary of Vaudeville & Hollywood,” which I was autographing for the dancers, and said he wants to read it. He’s had two seasons in the pro troupe, and this is his second time on tour. For our third photo opp in the VIP area, we were told that photos would be available with four of the pros and that we could choose to have a photo with one or any number of them. My hubby and I agreed that we should be photo’d with all of them. When our turn came I left two copies of my book on the designated table just outside...
