More of Marilu Henner & Derek Hough from the Season 23 Finale of DWTS – November 22, 2016

It’s true that we didn’t see our couple as much as we wanted last night…especially Derek who only danced in the opening number. But even for the while they appeared, they were amazing! We also didn’t see them much backstage on the social media… Check out below a short backstage video from the social media accounts of Dennis and Kym that included Derek and Marilu. For the dances of last night and Marilu’s All Access interview, you can check this post.

Also Getty has a couple of amazing pictures from last night! Marilu and Derek looked amazing!

Thank you Marilu Henner & Derek Hough for a great season!


Now that Season 23 is over, we feel more than ready and able to say goodbye to our beloved couple, Marilu and Derek.

We started this season 11 weeks ago with so much excitement and anticipation to be part of Team Hennergy’s journey. From the Jive through the emotional Viennese Waltz, till the Samba and the Jazz, we enjoyed every little moment. Marilu is a magical lady, 100% talent, 100% grace and 200% full of energy or as we all called it this season ‘Hennergy’. Marilu showed everyone that 64 is only a number and if you love something and feel passionate about it, you can do it.

It was so amazing to witness Marilu’s excitement being part of the show. As a huge fan of the show for years, being part of the DWTS family made her so happy and it showed all over her face! Also being a huge fan of Derek, gave us this priceless moment of her discovering that he would be her partner. I am sure we all watched this video over and over again, smiling and thinking deep down: “Yes, I would react the exact same way” 😀


We just want to say THANK YOU Marilu for each and every moment this season, for all the dances, the smiles and the Hennergy. Thank you for showing us the power of determination, for showing us that we can make our dreams come true no matter the age, for showing us the contribution of joy and happiness to our daily course. Marilu, you have such an amazing memory and you remember basically everything. But you can be sure we won’t forget this season, your Hennergy and all the fun moments through out this journey.

The journey might be over but we can say one thing for sure, Marilu, you are now PART of the DWTS family and you will always be! You are fan of the show and we are yours, we love you. We said it in the past and we sure will say it again, it was a pleasure watching you and Derek dancing every week, the power you both brought to this partnership was priceless and we learnt so much from it.

And of course, we can’t end this season without saying a big THANK YOU to our boy Derek, for giving us another season full of his flavor. Thank you for letting us again being part of your passion for the dance, part of your creative imagination. Showing us again how much you love this show and your family, how protective you are spreading love and positivity all around. Making us smile all the time, laugh or cry. We can’t say enough about your magical attitude, how you enter every season open minded ready to take the challenge, ready to create new friendships, new dances, new unforgettable memories.


With all of our love

Derek Hough blogs about his season with Marilu, working on HSL and more

TVGuide just posted Derek’s last blog for this season. On his blog Derek talk about his last dance with Marilu, having Mark back again at the dwts ballroom, the upcomig Hairspray Live! and working with Julianne on the Disney Holidays event.

For the full blog check TVGuide… yes this season is over and he probably wont be back for the next season but we are more then excited about all the other great things he is working on.


          I don’t want to dwell on the rehearsal package again after last week. It is what it is. I would hope that the audience and longtime fans know and understand by now that in a short package, it’s a very faint reflection of the reality of the week. Saying that though, given my schedule this season, the only thing that I think was a bummer was that we weren’t able to do anything out of studio or an environment that wasn’t a dance studio. When you do that, you’re able to see another side to people, where it’s not just you rehearsing and working. I think that in contrast to other packages, which was everyone traveling and doing things and having fun, it’s kind of a bummer. Whenever Marilu and I saw each other, the only time we had was to get the routines down and work as hard and as fast as we can.I think we were both prepared for a possible elimination. After being part of the show for so long, you get a sense of what’s going to happen based on a bunch of things. I think we were both expecting it, but also we’re very proud. Week 9 is nothing to turn your nose up at. She did incredibly well.


If you’re in L.A. this weekend, I will have two photography pieces on display at The Salon on Saturday. I’m very excited — it’s the first time I’ve ever had anything displayed. They’re signed and will be for sale. Photography’s been a hobby and passion of mine for several years, so I’m humbled to displayed alongside other great, inspiring artists.

Derek Hough Helping Mark Ballas With His Bachelor Party Plans

Ballas-Hough collaboration is always good collaboration, especially if it’s for Mark’s Bachelor Party. In an ET interview after Monday Show, Mark told Cameron Mathison some behind the scenes details about his upcoming wedding with BC Jean and his best man Derek, who is helping him to plan his bachelor party.

ET also talk with Derek after the show about the bachelor party plans.

Check ET’s site for this interview, we soon will update with international video.


Here is an international version of the video.

Backstage, Marilu Henner was all smiles, despite being the latest to leave the show. “This week was just golden. I’m so happy. I get to go see my son in Santa Fe [now], and then I’m seeing my other one in Prague over Thanksgiving. It all happens for a reason, and I’m so happy.” Marilu will also be back in two weeks for the finale.

As for her partnership with Derek, it came under some scrutiny last week when the cameras picked up on some tension. So what was the real story? “Literally the week before [last], Marilu goes on camera [and says], ‘Hey Derek! Think we need to have a fight or some more drama? I don’t think we have a dramatic story enough!’ I said, ‘No, Marilu! We’re good! We don’t need drama, we’re fine, we’re fine!’ And then of course…I’m watching this [rehearsal] package, and I’m like, ‘Those sons of a bitches!’ [Laughs] Cause I’m the first one to be like, ‘OK, I was such a jerk this week, and I’m sorry…’ but the week itself was not that. I took that personally because I’ve done this for 11 years.”

The two were all laughs as they told the above-mentioned story, and were more than game to talk the ups and downs of their journey. Speaking of the ups, having Mark Ballas back was certainly one of the season’s best moments. Said Derek: “A friend of mine, she texted me yesterday and said, ‘Seeing your energy [when you saw] Mark, you lit up.’ I really miss him. I really miss him.”


Fox News also had a really fun chat with our couple backstage! Below is just a small excerpt, be sure to read it all! It shows how much fun and blast both of them had during their time together 😀

Hough, 31, told reporters backstage that he learned many things from the veteran star, 64, including the meaning of the word physiognomy and “how to get rid of a bruise by rubbing it out with a pencil eraser. 
“Oh, the other ones are sexual tips and I can’t, I can’t,” Hough then stammered.
Standing by his side, Henner smiled, “I’m so matter of fact about this stuff.”
Hough, who has been dating fellow “DWTS” hoofer Hayley Erbert, exclaimed, “My favorite–she was like, she’s like, ‘I’ve gotta teach your girlfriend how to do this one.’ I was like, whoa, okay. Hey!”
Hough didn’t elaborate, but Henner added, “We had a blast.”
