    DWTS has been very, very good to Karina. Beautiful home. Spacious. It is going to cost her a fortune just to decorate and furnish it

    By the way, it's official. Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens will indeed appear on the show this season. As you know I am not happy about it. Hate the Ravens

    Is it wrong of me, Robin, to hope that Jones, during a performance of the paso, ruptures both his achilles tendons? If so, I wont hope for it. If not, I will. I leave it up to you though. You decide, okay?

    Saw the line up of the DWTS picks on GMA this morning. Should be interesting. Now, we just have to wait and see, who they get paired up with. I am so upset, that Maks is not going to be one of them. I hope little Amy gets Derek. Would be a cute pair.

    ETA: My hopes are already crushed. Amy will dance w/ Mark Ballas.

    Poor Tony...

    Val was paired with quite a lovely young cutie (Zendaya)  I wonder if Kelly will get jealous?

    I consulted with Fred the toad and he said to never wish ill will upon anyone, there is always the possibility that the negative energy will boomerang right back at you!

    She's 16.   Don't you have to be at least 18 to be a celebrity contestant on DWTS, I guess not!
    Ache, you had better warn Val...

    Poor Tony is right, Robin. Poor guy is going to need to be fitted for a back brace after hauling wide load Wynonna around the ballroom all season. (No lifts please, Tony!). For his sake, I hope she gets voted out early

    Not a bad cast though. Andy Dick i a funny guy, and Aly Raisman is a star. I assume the two golden boys, MB and YDH, had to buck up to see who got to partner with her. MB won

    Tristan paired with the eldest celeb again, I see, although DH still looks pretty good if that picture is at all accurate (ie, recent/unretouched). I wonder if she has any skills left from figure skating and whether they will translate over to the ballroom

    PS I will take Fred's advice inre Jacoby Jones. I refuse to root for him though for reasons I have already stated

    I looks like an interesting group.  I may have to tune in, well, DVR it because I am sure there is no way in h*ll that I could convince my DH to watch, lol.

    I don't think so, Shawn Johnston was 17 when she went on the first time.

    I think, that is what Tony got for winning the trophy last season. They figured, he doesn't need to win again this time. With all the newbies, I don't think, there will be much lifting anyway. At least not in the beginning, and I feel Wynonna will be out in a few episodes.

    No! Tristan is paired with Dorothy Hamill and Tony got Wynona Judd.

    I still can't get over the 16 year old, that's quite an advantage...at that age I could stand on my head and do cartwheels across the living room floor!

    PS: Maks owns dance studios in NJ with his brother Val and Tony Dovolani.  (edit)

    I agree about Mark, lol

    I'm a little uncomfortable with kids under 18 doing the sexually provocative dance moves and stuff...didn't everyone just make a big fuss about that 9 year old boy whose father made the rap video and he slaps a womans butt?  I heard DSS might be involved. 

    Oh well, I guess things have changed.

    Aly Raisman graduated from Needham high. She completed her last year online so she could prepare for the Olympics. According to interviews she and her parents gave she went the tradtional way until her Senior Year. She didn't get to go to her graduation (2012), but she did go to Senior Prom. She will be 19 in May. 

    Zendaya is the Disney star that actually has dance training. I suspect she has a private tutor for her high school. She just turned 16 in September.

    Correction re: the dance studios

    Dovolani along with Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Valentin Chmerkovskiy opened Dance with Me Studio in Stamford, CT on April 16, 2012.[8] The Stamford location is the fourth in the chain and the first in Connecticut started by Dovolani, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin Chmerkovskiy and their partners. The other studios are in Ridgefield, N.J., Long Island, N.Y., and Soho, N.Y.[8]

    You heard that Maks dumped Peta?

    http://www.examiner.com/article/dwts-maksim-chmerkovskiy-and-peta-murgatroyd-split-up

    So he would have had to work with 2 (that we know of) ex-gfs if he returned.  Awkward!

    ETA:  I like Bruno, he wrote a book about his life (so far) a few months ago,  I've been meaning to check it out.

    Born in Italy, Tonioli is fluent in Italian, English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French.[3] Tonioli is an out gay man, and has spoken of the homophobic bullying he suffered in his youth.[4]

    With football players traditionally dominating Dancing with the Stars, Jacoby Jones has to be an early favorite.

    But the NFL star has already fallen behind, getting a late start on rehearsals.

    Following a minor knee surgery just before casting announcements, doctors did not clear Jones to dance for several days. The Baltimore Raven, 28, and pro partner Karina Smirnoff, 35, hit the studio for the first time on Thursday.

    "Had a great 1st official day of rehearsals! @TheRealJacoby12 is cleared to dance! Yay!" Smirnoff Tweeted.

    A source tells PEOPLE the couple are "very behind."

    "It's unfortunate on a preparation level that they don't have as much time as everyone else," the source says, of the contestants on the show, which debuts season 16 on March 18. "It's crunch time."

    But the source assures that Smirnoff  who recently told PEOPLE she was "on cloud nine" when her partner was revealed and Jones are "ready for the challenge, they are both incredible athletes and they're used to pressure and working hard under any circumstance."
