Sadie Robertson was the “reality star” pick for Dancing with the Starsseason 19. During her introduction, the Duck Dynasty star mentioned that dancing is strictly prohibited at the Christian school she attends in Louisiana. The 1984 cult classic Footloose immediately came to mind for many, myself included.
So is dancing truly 100% prohibited at Sadie‘s school? According to the school’s principal, YES! The school has a long-standing ban on school dances, including prom, he confirmed.
Following the announcement that former competitor, Julianne Hough would be joining the judges’ table this season, most of the comments have been quite positive. But Karina is not so sure that Julianne is ready for the judges’ table.
Last night Kim Kardashian was at the VMAs sans her musical genius husband Kanye West. Kim attended with her sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and she also came on stage to introduce Sam Smith’s performance. Did anyone watch the VMAs? They had SNL’s Jay Pharaoh on the show, doing bits pretending to be Jay Z. and then Kanye. Kendall and Kylie were in hysterics and Kim was smiling blankly at the camera and looking at her sisters like “Whaaat did he say? Should I be laughing?” I added the video below.
Sources connected to the show reveal that Julianne has been made an offer to join the show as the fourth judge, which means no one is being replaced or fired, they’re simply adding a magical extra! Julianne’s people are in negotiations with DWTS to make the deal, which is supposed to happen soon. Julianne had a trial run last season which didn’t go well, but apparently ABC is still happy to have her return.
Rumor has it Maks was initially supposed to nab the extra judges spot, but instead they went with Julianne. Perhaps when Len Goodman takes that retirement…
Well, well, well, Julianne Hough has found herself in a bit of a pickle, hasn't she? The former Dancing with the Stars pro recently came under fire from some former co-stars when she returned this week as a judge with some harsh words for Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Julianne's critiques came during the Switch-Up Week where the pros were paired up with a celebrity who wasn't their normal partner. Maks was dancing with Winnie Cooper Danica McKellar instead of his regular teammate, Olympian Meryl Davis. Julianne was met with boos from the audience when she chastised Maks of his performance with Danica, saying, "You just had to phone it in so you could go back to Meryl."
While Maks has tried to remain diplomatic about Julianne's comments, his fellow professional dancers and the reality show's contestants are coming to his defense…except for NeNe Leakes. NeNe is totally TeamHough because, well, you know, she loves drama and instigating and all that jazz.
"Derek is great," shares NeNe. "He's a great choreographer. I've watched him dance over the seasons and I know how dope he is. What I like is that Derek knows that I am known for being fabulous – not that Tony didn't know that – but maybe he didn't know how to bring that out."
I cannot explain the feather sticking out of Derek's crotch in the above picture. I also have no words for Derek and NeNe's tribal-inspired jazz number. Derek looks like a flying monkey from the Wizard of Oz flapping his arms around next to giant NeNe. I can't – watch the video below.
No elimination tonight – last week's and this week's scores and viewer votes will be combined to determine who goes home next week. Will NeNe survive?
