One Life to Live and High School Musical Star, Corbin Bleu is blogging each week at AccessHollywood.com his journey on this season’s Dancing with the Stars on ABC.

In his first post today, Bleu reveals why he wanted to wait to finally compete in the ballroom dance floor series after being asked multiple times to join the DWTS Cast: “For me, it was still coming relatively close off of ‘High School Musical.’ … That’s the thing about the show, it’s a wonderful opportunity to promote and a wonderful opportunity to show people who you are. … I really wanted to be able to grow and just transform myself as an artist and as a person first. I wanted to be able to go off and do things like I did with Broadway and doing all these movies where I’m playing all these sort of crazy characters and being able to do the soap (‘One Life To Live)] — all these projects. I’m working as a producer and establishing my business.

Corbin also revealed that on tonight’s second episode of the Dancing with the Stars 17th season, that he and his partner Karina Smirnoff, will be dancing the Jive but with a theme of a tribute to his High School Musical days:  “Our contemporary (dance routine) was very intimate and more passionate in terms of a love relationship and very ethereal and then our jive [will have a theme]. … I said [to Karina], ‘Why don’t we do a ‘High School Musical’ tribute?’ … Like a swan song to our youth… I get a chance to show people where I came from and in turn, you get a chance to see the difference to where I am now.” Are you looking forward to Corbin’s second dance tonight?  Are you rooting him on?  What do you think about his decision to wait till now till after he got more acting credits under his belt, before he went back into show that featured his dancing?  Comment below!

Nobody cares. I certainly don’t think of him as being this year’s soap representative, let alone the first from “One Life to Live.”

I am really upset that he and ABC failed to mention his OLTL credits. What a loser!

i was disappointed too but i think it has to do with not only the fact that abc dumped the show, but also the lawsuit going on between them and prospect park; they’re not going to mention a show they both dumped completely and are now fighting the company that tried to save it; i believe legally corbin probably couldnt mention the show at all; so technically not his fault; i mean, he had no problem bringing it up (at least saying ‘the soap’) to access hollywood, so maybe not quite the loser some may think he is

I will only vote for him if he or the hosts mention that he has been a part of OLTL. This OLTL part may have helped jump start his career, and he should acknowledge it.

i doubt the show will be mentioned; abc dumped it and are involved in that lawsuit with pp over it. so its prob gonna be a legal issue with anyone on there including corbin, being able to mention oltl.

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,”

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.
