It has been a couple of weeks since we have checked in with our Dancing With the Stars crew, so let’s get to it! Exciting things are happening on the dance show, including some switch-ups!
For those of you who have not previously watched Dancing With the Stars, first of all, you’re missing out. Secondly, a “switch-up” is when the partners—celebrity and dancer—have to mix up their duos. It’s often tragic because some people just go so well together (and sometimes the new pairings feel like a major miss-match)! But enough of that, let’s check in on how the couples are doing.
Billy Dee Williams quit the dancing competition due to medical reasons, and Sean Avery has also been eliminated at this point. Besides those two, everyone else is still dancing strong.
This week, Meryl Davis and Valentin Chmerkovskiy led the highest scorers with their killer Argentine Tango. They wowed the crowd and the judges alike. In fact, Davis is leading the whole pack with the highest point total, so apparently switching it up didn’t shake her success at all. Read Full Post >
How far we have come, my fellow Dancing With the Stars fans. Right? Last night was the premiere of Season 18 of the popular dance show, and I can hardly believe it! Here’s a short summary of all that happened, in case you missed it:
Last night, we met the couples. If you haven’t seen the show previously, the professional dancers (who are actually celebrities themselves, at this point) are paired with an actor, actress, athlete, Olympian, orscientist, in this season’s case, then dance for votes each week. Read Full Post >
Chaz Bono has achieved the goal he set last November. At last weekend’s GLAAD awards, Bono revealed his 6o-pound weight loss. He credits his weight loss to changing his diet, using the Freshology meal delivery plan and staying active.
The former Dancing With the Stars contestant says that he is still taking dance classes and as also started martial arts training. Bono started his current weight loss journey with the help of The Doctors co-host Dr. Travis Stork, who recommended that at 250-pounds, 5 foot 5 1/2 inches, Bono should lose 5o pounds to 80 pounds.
“Everyone at The Doctors is proud of Chaz’s progress and we look forward to sharing his continued progress in the fall,” Dr. Stork told DietsInReview.com.
The child of singing sensations Sonny and Cher, Bono has struggled with weight his entire life. During his meeting with Dr. Stork he said, “Because I’m transgender, I was always completely disconnected from my body. I really lived in my head and just kind of tried to ignore everything from the neck down.” Read Full Post >
Have you ever heard someone say “put it it out to the universe” and wondered what they meant by it? Well, I have and for a long time I wasn’t exactly sure how or what I was supposed to be putting “out” to the universe. It wasn’t until I first went onto The Biggest Loser did I really try to figure it out either. I knew that I was being given the opportunity of a lifetime and I wanted to take full advantage of it, so I tried to recall any and every thing I had ever heard anyone attribute success to. One thing that kept coming to mind was the idea that if I put my goal of becoming the first female Biggest Loserout to the universe it would in fact come true. But what did that mean exactly?
I remember years ago hearing that if you wanted to create a million dollars you should write yourself a check for $1,000,000.00 and paste it somewhere that you saw everyday, several times a day. I also knew that this didn’t work because I, like everyone else who had ever heard that had done, wrote the check and taped it to my mirror. Yet I never created a million dollars. So there had to be more to it. Read Full Post >
Kelly Osbourne, daughter or rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, has a few secrets to reveal yet about her 60-plus pound weight loss. The lavender-haired star is gracing the cover of UK’sCosmopolitan Bodydue out December 27, looking slim and toned in a revealing bikini. In an interview with the publication Osbourne, 28, revealed the one simple trick behind her trim physique and healthier outlook on life: Self love.
“People think I lost weight and that’s what made me happier. That’s not true: I had to learn to love myself first,” she said. “Losing weight was just one benefit of putting the hard work in and sorting myself out on the inside first through therapy.”
Osbourne’s outward transformation began in 2009 during her stint on Dancing with the Stars when she experienced a 50 pound weight loss. In an interview with Shape Magazine the star said was able to drop down to a size 2 thanks to a high-protein, low-carb diet in addition to a vigorous dance schedule and weight training. “I can’t believe I just did that and my body looks this good,” she told Shape.
To lose the weight Osbourne admits there was no one simple trick and it was all about getting to the gym and eating right. As reported by People Magazine, the fashionista is watchful of her diet and enjoys indulgences like pizza and chocolate cake in moderation. She also commits to doing something active every day.
