Time to Watch DWTS Season 13 – Derek Hough and Ricki Lake New Video Page!

Time for the next season of Dancing with the Stars with Derek Hough. This time, it’s Ricki Lake – she of the Psycho Tango!! Derek and Ricki made it all the way to third place…and there were a number of amazing Pro dances this season. Be sure to check them all out!! I’m particularly fond of the Design a Dance by Derek and Anna Trebunskaya and Derek’s first dance with Allison Holker.

You can go back to any of the seasons I’ve created pages for so far by hovering over “Dancing by Derek” in the header menu or by simply clicking on it. To go straight to Ricki and Derek’s page, just click this link:  Derek and Ricki

Kellie Pickler Talks On “Dream Partner” Derek Hough And Dancing With the Stars In New Interviews

In a new Broadway World interview, Kellie Pickler was asked about Dancing With The Stars. Read below for how she reacted. She mentioned Derek as well.

Oh that’s great news! I am a big fan of DANCING WITH THE STARS and your season was truly one of my favorites. What was that experience like for you, because I know you gave some very emotionally-driven performances throughout the season.

Well that was by far my favorite thing I’ve ever participated in as far as television projects go. I didn’t realize that I would have this love for dance, I had never ballroom danced before in my life. Derek Hough, who was my dance partner, he really helped me discover another passion that I didn’t even know that I had and I loved it. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Kellie also talked on Dancing With The Stars and Derek in a new AOL Build interview at the 12:30 minute mark HERE (sorry. I can’t get the embed to work for some reason). She said he was a “dream partner”.
