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.
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?
When one plastic surgery obsessed Kim seeks solace in another! Kim Zolciak is currently in LA appearing on Dancing With The Stars, and while in town she had an emergency of the facial droop-age sort. Describing herself as desperate for Botox, she turned to a source she knew could help a girl out in a jam: Kim Kardashian! Well, Kim Kardashian’s facial scientist, at least.
Kim Z praised Dr. Ourian‘s amazing cool laser skills on instagram and gushed about his flawless skin creating abilities. I guess these things matter when dancing on national television. Kim has visited Dr. Ourian before – she and Brielle flew out there for some facial work and schmoozed with Khloe. Kylie Jenner also credits Dr. Ourian for being the one who ‘fixed’ her crazy lip injections.
Kim accused Delta Airlines of intentionally trying to “separate” her and her luggage, which contained “very expensive items,” (her wigstand?!) when they informed her she arrived to too late to check bags. Did she believe the airline employees were trying to set her up to have items stolen during her flight from LA to Atlanta?
When asked why she joined Dancing with the Stars, Tamar says, “After I had my baby, I kind of slowed down a bit and I just wanna put a pep in my step.” In rehearsal, Tamar and Val Chmerkovskiy are having fun together. Tamar says Val’s like an annoying little brother, adding, “Val and I are both outspoken <side eye>, but I’m happy to have the current champion as my partner.”
Tamar and Val dance the Quickstep to “Do Your Thing” by Basement Jaxx. The choreography is no joke – very courageous for week one – but Tamar nails it. So far, I think Tamar is the total package – spunky personality, good work ethic, and killer moves. Check out the video below.
There’s a lot of good TV on tonight – Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives of Orange County, and Ladies of London, oh my! Thank goodness for the DVR! – but Kim Zolciak‘s debut on Dancing with the Stars is my top priority tonight. And I assume the live TV seven second delay will be ABC‘s #1 priority.
While Kim‘s #$@%! mouth will keep ABC busy Monday nights, Tony Dovolani has been tasked with trying to keep the Don’t Be Tardy star on her toes (well, anywhere but on her ass, eating pizza and drinking wine).
Tony said he’s happy with Kim so far, adding, “She’s got a great attitude. Just getting to meet her was a pleasure because in watching her show over all these years, you kind of have an idea of what this person is. And then you meet them and you go, ‘Oh, OK, hold on they’re different,’ or, ‘They’re the same.’ And in this particular case, she is exactly what she’s like on TV. And that’s pretty cool.”
Kim Zolciak thinks we’re all as obsessed with her appearance as she is! The mom of six is going overboard trying to showoff her weight loss and prove to haters that she’s still got it.
The Don’t Be Tardy star posted a series of videos and photos on instagram to flaunt her weight loss and insists she isn’t photoshopping her photos – she’s just naturally svelte. Kim does remember we’ve been watching her wig out on TV for years, right? Hopefully Dancing With The Stars will help Kim tone up even more so she can quit slimmerizing her selfies!
