Thank you for voting for us! Another week! Yay! We really appreciate it!
I’m sad Adam [Carolla] left. He was really starting to get into it and he was so much fun to have around! He definitely brought a sense of fun and lightheartedness to the show. We’re being serious and I think he knows what his strength is — to entertain people. He wasn’t afraid to show that side of himself. He’ll be missed for sure. I’ve also gotten to know Julianne [Hough] pretty well. She’s part of the reason I wanted to do the show, so it’s been fun to get to know her. She better come back for more pro dances! I’m excited about her new career as a country singer. I’m already looking at tour dates so I can go see her perform live!
How cute were the child dancers?! They were so adorable and so unbelievably talented! Wow. I was so impressed with their poise. I can kind of picture Keara doing that. I’m going to talk to the little ones here and ask if they like competing. If they say no, I’m going to say no about Keara doing it!
Keara’s still learning my dances! My kids will watch our dances over and over on YouTube and ask us to play the music. Keara danced a foxtrot with Mark all the way through and had better frame than I do! And Emma’s still got a crush on Mark! She still gets very shy and smiley around him! It’s so cute!
I love having my family and friends here watching and cheering me on. Some of my friends from skating have come to see me on the show already — Peggy Fleming and Evan Lysacek — and I think Brian Boitano and Scott Hamilton might be coming in the next couple weeks… if we’re still here! I really appreciate them taking the time out to come support me. I’m not sure about Apolo Anton Ohno yet. I haven’t talked to him since starting this — I’ve kind of talked to him through other people. Hopefully he’ll be here at the show in a couple of weeks as well!
Next week we’re tackling the rumba. It’s sexy, full of passion and heat. We’re going to try our best to take what Len [Goodman] said about bringing out more emotion and making it look different from our other dances.
So I’m apparently the butt in Jason [Taylor]’s eyes! That was a fun analogy. At first I didn’t know what he was talking about and then I realized, “Oh, that’s me!” Although, I must say, I’d rather have his butt in sight!
Back to rehearsals!
Thanks again for your support!
