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.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
We already shared red carpet photos from PUMP's grand opening. Today, we gathered up a few party shots ofLisa and her guests, as well as pictures of PUMP's decor. Lisa designed PUMP herself. "I wanted to create a garden that makes you feel like you're in paradise, like France," Lisa told the LA Times. "I always look for what I think the market needs in a certain space. For this – it is very gay friendly because we are right in boy's town."
But, we still got to see NeNe and Tony's Argentine Tango, as well as their team dance. Team Vida consisted of Charlie & Sharna, James & Peta, and NeNe & Tony. Tony asked NeNe how she felt about making it to week seven, and she said, "I feel like everybody left is Olympians and people with dance experience, and we're just like the little odd balls." We?!? NeNe is odd. The only "odd" thing about Tony is that he likes NeNe.
NeNe's Argentine Tango was horrible. Her costume was worse. It looked like she wore a plastic brown trash bag – and it made her hips and butt look huge. Team Vida hid NeNe in the audience during the group dance. Enough said.
