In the last year Dancing with the Stars has gone through a lot changes and the last one might be the most devastating one yet.
First ABC cut a night from their two-night programming, then they fired the band and the female co-host before finally changing things up by changing the professional dancers midway through the season.
Well today, The Hollywood Reporter says that Showrunner Conrad Green, who has been with the show since day, is jumping ship to Fox’s Utopia. So that means if ABC renews the show, there will be even more changes.
Hopefully the first one will be the judges because they really need to go. Something Green told me a few years ago didn’t need to happen. Another change that I think they need to do, is change up the pros. If they make those two changes, then I might tune back in. Otherwise it just seems like the same old, same old.
What would make you tune back into Dancing with the Stars?
Derek Hough took off a season of Dancing with the Stars to star in the movie Make Your Move. After watching the trailer, I think he made the wrong move. The dancing looks great, but the acting and plot look so bad that Len, Bruno and Carrie Ann would give him lower numbers than Master P.
So while I won’t be there on April 18th to see it, did it make your dance card?
Elizabeth Berkley promised that she would do something from Saved By the Bell on Dancing with the Stars and tonight she delivered. So watch as Jesse Spano proves that her acting hasn’t improved since that day she that she had one too many caffeine pills. But her dancing has gotten so much better since she was in Showgirls.
Back in March, Valerie Harper was told that she has terminal brain cancer and was given only three months to live. Well she took that diagnosis and told them to f*ck off. Now 5 months later, she is still going strong and TMZ is reporting that she is joining this season of Dancing with the Stars along with Leah Remini, Snooki, Elizabeth Berkley, Amber Riley and Christina Milian.
Hopefully her former-costar Cloris Leachman will give her some advice on how to win the whole thing, even though Phyllis didn’t go as far as she should’ve on the competition. Personally she has my vote because I have always loved her. In fact I love her so much, I am going to watch the again just for her.
BTW you can see Rhoda, Phyllis, Mary, Sue Ann Nivens and Georgette together again next Wednesday on Hot in Cleveland at 10p. It’s the show’s funniest episode of the season and I went to the taping of the one with Carol Burnett and Tom Conway!
Julianne Hough and Ryan Seacrest have split according to People. The couple, who had been dating for two years, blame their “break” up on their busy work schedules. But let’s be real, I bet it is because he hasn’t put a ring on it.
Julianne Hough wore a soft pink Jenny Packham gown to the Golden Globes after parties and she danced a little too hard in it. So much so she ripped the seams of the dress to reveal her dancer legs. Good thing she is dating Ryan Seacrest because he can afford to pay for it! Which is a good thing because as she explained, “Ummm again… I love to dance regardless of how expensive a dress may be… You can’t hold me down!!! :)” To me if a dress can tear that easily maybe it isn’t as expensive as the label says!
Below is the dress before it was no longer a safe haven for legs.
Carrie Ann Inaba has done something that no judge on Dancing with the Stars has ever done, she fell out of her chair. She was so excited by Giles Marini’s dance that she couldn’t even stay her in seat after declaring “Let the baby making begin!” Sadly the cameras were not on her when she slipped off the side of her chair, but they were there to see her lying on the floor laughing her a$$ off.
Not only was it hysterical to see her on the floor, it was funny to see how people reacted to it. Len Goodman who was sitting next to her did nothing but laugh at her. Bruno Tonoli initially went to help her, but then he too broke down in laughter. Giles Marini being the French man that he is, ran to her aid and helped her up. While Tom Bergeron stood by his side to make sure she was OK. When it was all done, Bruno fell down on the table hoping Giles would comfort him too. He obliged with a big kiss on to the not Still Standing judge’s forehead.
Who knew a judge falling off her chair will probably be the most talked about moment during the DWTS: All-Stars edition. And I hope the capitalize on it tonight and show the cameras that were focused on her when she fell. I want to see her face as she went down.
Dancing with the Stars has been lucky this season as in no one had been hospitalized because of the show. That is until yesterday when Melissa Rycroft was injured and taken to the hospital via ambulance for suffering a neck and head injury during a rehearsal. According to Eonline she has since been released, but it is unsure if she will be able to dance tonight. She Tweeted, “Thank you so much for sending your prayers..still seeing and talking to docs this AM, will give more details soon, but thanks for your love!” I am sure in true DWTS style we will not know her fate until right before the Presidential debate.
Out of all of the weeks for this to happen, this would be a good one because no one is slated to be eliminated this week. So if she can’t dance, the show can stand losing her. Not that I want her to be that seriously injured, just saying this is a good time to lose a contestant if need be.
If she can’t dance tonight, it would not be the first time this has happened to her on the ABC dancing show. Back in 2009 she fractured three ribs and had to skip dancing on the show for a night.
Yesterday on Dancing with the Stars Drew Lachey and Helio Castroneves were eliminated before constant low scorer Bristol Palin and Jimmy Kimmel wanted to know how they felt about it on his ABC late night show. So Drew Lachey admitted he sent the white powder to her, but for some reason it didn’t get enough press that he did it. Of course he was kidding…I think.
Seriously Lachey was so funny during his chat on Jimmy Kimmel Live that I so want him to get his own show. He had me laughing so hard, that I am bummed he didn’t stay on the show a little longer so we could’ve enjoyed his humor a little longer. Actually Anna Trebunskaya and Chelsie Hightower were also very funny during the chat!
And when it comes to him being unjustly eliminated before the gun-toting Palin, who is only star because she got pregnant as a teen and had the kid, he is right. His freestyle dance that got him the win during season 2 was one of the best dances ever on the show. He was robbed.
Zac Efron is one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors and looks like a new woman might’ve danced her way into his heart. According to In Touch the Lucky One was seen flirting on a dance floor with Dancing with the Star’s two-time champ Cheryl Burke at a night club recently. The source told the mag, “They hooked up after partying all night together.” The mag added that her rep denies they left together, but a source said that they did meet up afterwards. Since both of them know how to dance, imagine what they could do in the bedroom?
And maybe if we are lucky, she can convince him to do Dancing with the Stars? I would like to seem in a tux doing a Quick Step, don’t you want to see that too?
