Dancing with the Stars Week 2! OLTL's Corbin Bleu Delivers Top Score! Did Brant Daugherty Dance Too Sexy Of A Rumba?

Last night on the second week of competition for season 17 of  ABC”s Dancing with the Stars, it was One Life to Live and High School Musical  Star, Corbin Bleu and his dance partner Karina Smirnoff,  who wowed the judges most scoring a 26 out of 30 for their Jive which Bleu performed as an homage to his High School Musical days.

With leaps, athleticism, and dance movements, they were the couple to beat. The only awkward moment came when Bleu, before the judges gave their scores, said to DWTS host Tom Bergeron,  “I have to do something for myself for a moment.”   He then shouted to the audience,”What team? What team? Wildcats!”  Obviously, another nod to High School Musical.  However, if you never saw the movie, you would have no idea what came over him!

Now on to Pretty Little Liars and Days of our Lives guest star, Brant Daugherty and his dance partner Peta Murgatroyd, The sexy couple danced the Rumba!  While their chemistry is palpable, the judges seemed to criticize some of the movement, and may have felt it was more smoke in mirrors, without really saying it.  To us, it looked pretty damn good!  Brant and Peta scored a 23.

As we reported last week, our pick to be booted off this week in the first elimination was ESPN commentator Keyshawn Johnson, and the dancing Gods were with us, because at the end of the night …he was the first to be given the boot!  Leaving Bill Nye and Bill Engvall, the next gents that should go, although with Bill Nye receiving so much fan support, he could get through for weeks on end!

In the “hankie” moment of the evening, that was provided by Valerie Harper’s dance partner, Tristan MacManus, who while in rehearsal was overcome to tears watching Valerie give it her all and try to learn the steps in their Paso Doble!  Harper had injured her knee last week and is battling terminal cancer.

Other’s who impressed:  Jack Osbourne, who was so hard on himself and self-depreciating in rehearsals, did a more than admirable job with the the Rumba with partner Cheryl Burke.  While Leah Ramini, who performed a Samba with Tony Dovolani,  finally publicly said something about her struggle with leaving the Church of Scientology citing it as both a motivation and a distraction for signing on to Dancing With the Stars during her rehearsal segment.  Jack and Cheryl and Leah and Tony both scored a 24 from the judges.

Bill Nye will go on for a bit longer– he’s so darn lovable it would be like voting off your grandpa. He dances badly but when you watch him you know it his heart he is dancing like Fred Astaire — so I hope he stays for a bit longer just to watch his joy.

Both Corbin and Brant are doing well, dancing with former mirror ball winners, so they have a good shot at the title.

Valerie is an inspiration— and that moment with Tristan was so sweet– just proves true beauty lies in our souls not in our looks.

Not sure who will go home next, but enjoying this new season, the dancing and the faster format of everything happening in one night. Looking forward to julianne hough being a guest judge in a couple of weeks– that should be interesting to see.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

DWTS new EP Andrew Llinares, then said in a statement. “We’ve got a great and diverse cast. We are excited about the season,”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
