“Most of the women are making on the minor stuff in my opinion, and so yeah, there’s gonna be some questions being asked, but the challenge for me – if you’ve got questions, come to me directly,” said Brooks. “Don’t talk behind my back, don’t assume and try to put the pieces together. There’s only been one time that these ladies have ever asked me about my cancer and my treatment.”
Val considers his hometown New York City. “My parents dropped everything in Ukraine, their job, their friends, and came to New York City with nothing just so that their kids could become something,” shares Val. “Everything I have now is because of them.”
Once again, Val and Tamar butt heads in the rehearsal. When Val explains his vision for the dance, Tamar takes issue with him chasing her around shirtless. Wait, what? A shirtless Val is everything. #FansSelf #Shallow #DontCare I’m not here for Tamar making Val keep his shirt on.
Heather took to her blog to explain why she talked to Vicki Gunvalson about the speculation surrounding Brooks‘ cancer, “I felt obligated to pull Vicki aside and discuss my feelings about what was going on with Brooks. There is a lot more to this part of the story and it will come out, so you will have to stay tuned to watch this unfold. What I can say is that I didn’t want to be involved in Brooks’ health issues, real or not. However, it was Brooks himself that pulled me into it! You will have to wait and find out how that happened.”
About last week’s abysmal start, Kim says, “It was all kind of a blur – the scores and what they [the judges] said. I am really disappointed in myself because I obviously can do much better. But I mean where can you go from here but up?”
Kim focuses on Atlanta for “Hometown Glory” week.
“I grew up in Connecticut,” explains Kim, “but I have been here in Atlanta for 16 years. Atlanta’s where Big Poppa all my dreams came true. I met my amazing husband here. And I have had five of my children – out of six – here in Atlanta.”
Does Kim dance better this week? Avoid elimination?
On Saturday night, Kim went out to dinner with her estranged sister and former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Kyle Richards, at Ocean Prime in Beverly Hills. Kim shared on Instagram, “Spent some fun quality time with my sister Kyle. Life is good.”
Two of Kim‘s daughters, Brooke and Whitney, also came out to support Kim.
TMZ followed Kim and Kyle out of the restaurant. Because, they are never far behind. When asked if she has a birthday wish, Kim said, “Just that this is the beginning of a wonderful year. And that everybody has a good year.” TMZ went on to ask about Kim’s upcoming community service labor. “She’s got this,” Kyle said. “She’s got this.”
