David Alan Grier recently talked about his Dancing With The Stars weight loss. The actor told US, “I’ve actually lost 26 pounds. The first day I came in, I was like, ‘I’m not going to lose weight – we’re waltzing!”
David’s extensive dancing routine includes 3 hours of daily aerobics with his dancing partner Kym Johnson. Kym adds, “You’re burning a lot more calories because you’re actually moving your whole body, as opposed to doing just weights.” Grier says he had also been on a strict diet of egg whites, fruits, and yogurt.
Melissa is on the cover of this week’s People Magazine and she opens up about her heartbreak, and new found celebrity.
On meeting American Idol Judge Randy Jackson – “He was like, ‘Heeeeeeey, how are you?” And, then, of course, it happened: Jackson pulled her into a big bear hug. “Just three months ago I was on the other side, I am so not a celebrity.”
On getting over her heartbreak – Melissa tells People she intended to spend months getting over her Bachelor heartbreak. “I go through stages, I will shut down and lock myself in my room. And then I’ll get to the point where I can’t be by myself and I have to be around other people all the time. Otherwise I’ll drive myself nuts crying. I cry it out. Then one day I wake up and go, I’m okay.”
More of Melissa’s interview can be seen in this week’s People magazine issue.
Dancing With The Stars ended last night with this season’s first double elimination! There was no dance off as Holly Madison, Steve-O, and Steve Wozniak found themselves in the bottom three.
Holly and Steve Wozniak ended up getting the boot. Both Steve and Holly had endured injuries since the show began. Holly states, “It was a lot physically harder than I thought it was going to be, but it was so much fun and I’m so glad l got a chance to do it,” Madison said. ” And I still love the costumes – that’s still my favorite part.”
Steve also had a positive attitude about his time on the show. He tells People, “These are like real people. Everybody smiles and is supportive and helpful.” While Steve was delightful on the show, it is nice to see him go home before he turned into DWTS’s Sanjaya.
Dancing With The Stars favorite to win it all Gilles Marini speaks out about getting the first perfect score this season!
You did amazing last night. You got three 10s! We try our best. I was very insecure last night before we start dancing because I saw the dress rehearsals. Everyone was brilliant and I was like, “I’m done today.”
How does it feel to hear Carrie Anne Inaba say she couldn’t tell who was the celebrity and who was the professional dancer during your Argentine tango? You know, it doesn’t make me do anything. When she says that it means Cheryl is an accomplished teacher. Every week I’m starting from zero. We have the paso doble next, and I don’t know what a paso doble is yet. I never seen a paso doble my entire life. I didn’t even know how to spell it.
I’m sure you’ve been getting a lot more fan mail and attention. We have much more people contacting us and saying they are really having a fun time. This morning, I was on a radio show and a listener called in saying, “My wife was really horny last night, so thank you!” I thought it was hilarious and a compliment. I’m helping make babies. That’s the nicest thing I’ve heard this morning.
The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft has been able to catapult her heartbreak into a spot on DWTS, so is Playboy next?
According to a new report, Melissa has been offered $500,000 to show it all in Playboy. Star Magazine reports that Hugh Hefner sent the Bachelor beauty a personal letter asking her to pose, and also inviting her to a dinner at the Playboy mansion to discuss the deal!
A source reveals, “Hef really wants Melissa to do a pictorial because she’s the ultimate girl next door.” Melissa however could not pose now because it would go against her ABC contract which does now allow her to pose nude while appearing on Dancing With The Stars. The contract also disallows her from posing nude until 3 months after the show ends.
What do you think about this story? Should Melissa pose for Playboy?
Dancing With The Stars Apple Billionaire Steve Wozniak has gotten so close with his partner Karina, that he is now planing to walk her down the aile when she weds fellow dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Steve states, “She said I could walk her down the aisle, and it touched my heart.” Karina adds “He’s a little out of his element but has the biggest personality you’ll ever meet, He’s super funny and super charming.”
The Dancing With The Stars curse rages on with Holly Madison being the latest to fall victim to injury. According to new reports, Holly is dealing with pain in her rib area. Her publicist says she has seen a doctor and was prescribed some pain medication.
If you recall, Holly replaced Jewel at the last minute after the singer suffered fractures in both legs during pre-show training. She is expected to dance on Monday’s show.
Ever wondered how much the Celebs get paid to be on Dancing With The Stars? Well we now have that answer! All the stars get paid the amount of $200,000 for the season. The $200,000 is paid whether or not the stars get voted off. So Belinda Carlisle , the first star voted off this season would still get that amount.
