Happy Birthday to Brooks Laich and More from Derek Hough’s Day – June 23, 2016 (Snapchat Video)

Man, I wanna go to these pool parties they keep having. So jealous. 🙂 But I would hate to stand next to Hayley or Julianne in a swim suit. LOL. And it all starts with getting ready to pelt Brooks with water balloon for his birthday…

New Artistic Endeavors and More from Universal – Derek Hough: Day(s) in the Life – June 21st and 22nd

Of course Derek kept going after I retired last night and he and the Nephews got drenched once again. 🙂 Considering the heat, it was likely a blast. Derek best revise his driving habits, though, if he’s a “scary” driver. Out of the mouths of babes. 😉 AND, I’m really digging his new drawing…and I love that dog. 😀

Kristin Chenoweth Is “Manipulative Producer” In Derek Hough’s “Corny Collins Show” In “Hairspray Live”

In case you haven’t heard yet, Kristin Chenoweth has been added to the cast of “Hairspray LIVE”. What’s more, she most likely will be involved in some of the scenes with Derek as she is the “manipulative producer” of “The Corny Collins Show”. Whatever the case, this cast just got better and Derek couldn’t be in finer company. From Entertainment Tonight….

In totally perfect casting news, Kristin Chenoweth is headed to NBC’s Hairspray Live!.

Chenoweth will play Velma Von Tussle, the manipulative producer of The Corny Collins Show, who will stop at nothing to make her daughter, Amber, the star Velma never was. Unfortunately for the Von Tussles, they have to contend with Tracy Turnblad (newcomer Maddie Baillio) and Velma vows to do everything in her power to topple Tracy.

To read more on Kristin, see Entertainment Tonight.

A Horror Movie and Universal Studios – A Day and A Night in the Life of Derek Hough: June 20 and 21, 2016

As per usual, after I shut down my computer for the night, Derek goes on a crazy spree involving hair cuts for his nieces which turned into the filming of a horror movie. Hilarious. 🙂 But that bit of Derek hugging Quaid good night made me a bit misty, I have to say. Ovary explosion. Then today, the family went to Universal Studios and spent time at Harry Potter – I’m jealous of that. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan and I’ve not been to either the Orlando or LA versions. Someday…

I have to admit that the phrase “getting their hair did” drives me absolutely crazy. It’s just grammatically wonky and I hear it a lot here in the South.

Fun in the SUN!! Derek Hough: A Day in the Life – June 20, 2016

Good thing they have a pool, since LA is having a serious heat wave!! Poor Quaid – getting tormented by Uncle D. Such a little cutie. They all are. And isn’t Marriann’s painting amazing? Holy Crap is right!! Well done! And Derek’s is beautiful as well. That one wouldn’t work in my house, but several of his previous works would – hand them over, Derek. 🙂
