Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert in the Daily Mail – July 25, 2016

Derek and Hayley apparently had breakfast at Joan’s on Third and were captured on film by the paps. That’s a popular restaurant – not surprising they got busted. 🙂 Also not surprising is the number of inaccuracies in the article.

New Info from Derek and Julianne Hough’s First Lip Sync Battle (Screencaps)

So, as I previously reported, Lip Sync Battle tonight was sort of a repeat of Derek and Julianne’s first appearance on the show.
