Hi there!

Sorry for the delay! I’ve been busy all day working on our

next dance – the tango! But of course, I have to take time out to talk

to you guys! And I suppose we must address what I know you’re all

thinking about – our little fall on the dance floor last night.

I guess it might have been hard to tell what happened if

you were watching on television, but Derek slipped on my dress and we

both went down. We only had one dress rehearsal and I guess you might

say it was a wardrobe malfunction!

I have to admit I was a bit embarrassed, but isn’t falling always

embarrassing?! What I was most upset about was that the fall happened

at the end – our finale to our quickstep, which we had worked so hard

on! We practiced it and did it perfectly so many times. I wanted to see

our hard work pay off on the show and I wanted everyone at home to see

how much I have been working on my dancing!

I’ve been lucky that my family has been there to support me through all

of this. They were in the audience last night and I felt better as soon

as I saw my husband and daughter smiling at me. I know they are proud

of me no matter what.

The night was also hard because I haven’t been feeling well lately and have – if you watched last night – lost my voice! It’s lucky for me that this is a blog, which means I get to type, and that Dancing with the Stars

is just dancing, because my voice is pretty much gone. I’ve been a bit

under the weather and with our workout schedule I haven’t really had

time to recoup. This may work to my advantage. We’ll have to see on

Monday, but let’s just say I’ve been a much better listener.

And trust me, I’ve been listening intently to Derek

– the most amazing partner. Really! I couldn’t have asked for a better

teacher and friend. Of course rehearsals are filled with work, but

Derek and I always have fun and are able to laugh with and at each

other, as you may have seen last night in the rehearsal clip!

Next week we’re doing the tango — it’s a sexy dance with a

lot of fun moves. Like I said in my interview on the show last night:

when Derek asks me to look at him as a strapping, leading man I do my

best to see it in him...and not laugh too much!

Well tonight is the results show, which I am very nervous

about. I just want to thank everyone in advance who has voted for us!

We really appreciate your support. Cross your fingers! I’ll give you

another update later!
