Dancing with the Stars officially kicked off last night and the first dance is over! What a beautiful night of dancing that was!
Marilu and Derek were amazing! Be sure to check our post from last night to see their dance and other videos and pictures from the live show. Unfortunately there was an incidence too during the night and many media focus on that instead of dancing…glad that the situation was solved quickly and as you’ll see below, Derek played a big part on it! So proud to be Derek’s fan!
Below the video coverage and interviews of the night…for pictures and articles, you can click here and here respectively. We’ll update with more interviews as they come out and also have international versions of them later on.
ETA: International version of all the videos added…
Entertainment Tonight talks to Derek and Marilu about the incident with Ryan and I love what Derek says. Here are some excerpts, click the link to watch the video. “I felt the energy in the room change. I’m really sensitive to that, honestly. I got really defensive, not just for Ryan, but for the ballroom, for the show. […] You without sin cast the first stone.I don’t think these people are perfect. I don’t think any of us are and I think that to bring that in here, that doesn’t belong in here.”
In an interview with E News, Derek talks about the incident and gives his own positive message about it. Watch the video below.
A beautiful recap from ABC7 and our beloved George. Marilu and Derek’s interview is at about 0:37. And as George reveals, next week is TV Theme week!
