And the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star wouldn’t have it any other way. To hear her tell it, her past as asn exotic dancer could provide the edge she needs to walk away with the disco ball. Continue reading
*How’s she doing? Her typical gossiping and shading someone is what she’s up to.
Tony Dovolani was partnered up with “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, and he’ll most likely have his hands full with Leakes personality alone.
*Veteran musician and orchestrator Ray Chew will lead the new band situation on “Dancing With the Stars” for its 18th season.
He’ll replace longtime orchestra leader Harold Wheeler, whose dismissal from the show made headlines last week. The musicians union blasted it as a move away from live music.
Series executive producer Conrad Green has now responded to the backlash.
*“Dancing With the Stars” will sound a bit different when it returns for its 18th season.
Producers are doing away with the live band in favor of more pre-existing sound recordings, and have therefore fired the show’s longtime bandleader Harold Wheeler.
American Federation of Musicians president Ray Hair is not happy with ABC and blasted the network for replacing the live backing band with what he referred to as a “small electric band.”

It was just a few days ago that we were all wondering if the “Glee” star could even finish the completion because of her knee problems. Well obviously she hung in there and result was obviously well worth the effort.
It’s also worth nothing that this is the fifth mirror ball trophy for Hough.
If you missed it, the three finalists — Riley and Hough, Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff and Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke — were joined by the eliminated cast members. Each ousted couple performed one of their most popular routines during the two-hour finale.
Tuesday night, as NJ.com’s Janelle Griffith reported, the three remaining couples competed in the 24-Hour Dance Fusion contest, which required them to combine two styles they received at the end of Monday’s episode. This was especially difficult because each couple had less than a day to choreograph and rehearse two entirely different routines. The scores from this dance were added to Monday’s totals and the viewer votes from last night to determine the winner.
Interestingly, during the show’s opening, Hough speculated the finale could be decided by viewer votes and he was right.
“It might not be about the highest scorers … it might not be about the dances at all,” he said.
An elated Amber Riley had this to say about her win:
“No matter your size or color…. you can do whatever, whatever, whatever you put your mind to!”
