Unfortunately, Marriann has been quite busy and so we haven’t been able to do what we would have liked. We’ll see how this goes in the future.
In the meantime, I’ve partnered with a real fan of Derek to create a site dedicated to Derek Hough. If you’re a fan of Derek I think you’ll love that site. It stays very updated on everything Derek Hough is doing including a lot of pictures of Derek Hough available on the internet (or at least close to that).
Just to get an idea, check out some of these incredible pictures of Derek Hough:

Enjoy all those updates on Derek Hough!!

Marriann and myself apologize for not being able to keep this up to date. Marriann has been extremely busy moving to Nashville and then a number of different family issues to deal with along the way. Seems like the job of mother never ends.
I talked with Marriann today and we’re thinking about working out a way for Marriann to possibly record a quick audio “podcast” about Derek and Julianne. I would then post the audio for everyone to enjoy. We’ll see how that goes and if it works out the way we’d like it to work out.
Marriann is very excited for the next season of Dancing with the Stars. I’m sure everyone saw the Dancing with the Stars couples. Derek is paired with Grammy Award winning rapper Lil’ Kim. Julianne is paired with country singer (and boyfriend) Chuck Wicks.
Should be another exciting season of Dancing with the Stars. Hopefully Marriann and myself will have time to share some interesting details on the life of Derek and Julianne.

Mark Ballas Jr. is almost like another son to Marriann and so we had to get a picture of Mark while we were there. Also, when Derek and Julianne’s Grandma saw Cloris she had to have a picture of her to remember the occasion.

Many of Julianne and Derek’s fans have been interested to know if Chuck and Shannon were at the Dancing with the Stars finale. Hopefully this post will answer that question for you.
I (John) have been assisting Marriann with this website (read more here) and it just so happened that my wife and I were going to be in Southern California on the night of the finale. Marriann was very gracious and said that we could come backstage on the show and possibly get in to see the finale. The following 2 pictures were taken by Marriann of my wife and I with Chuck and Shannon.
They were both very nice to us. We had a nice little conversation with Chuck and Julianne and Chuck looked very cute together. Shannon Elizabeth looked wonderful. Near the end of Derek and Brooke’s dance at the finale, I glanced over to where Shannon was sitting and she was beaming. It was a very sweet moment that the cameras didn’t catch, but was really quite wonderful.
Sorry to borrow Marriann’s blog for a moment, but I thought that fans of Derek and Julianne would enjoy the pictures and would need to know why my wife and I were in the pictures. My only regret was that I wasn’t able to get a picture of Julianne with Chuck and Derek with Shannon. I’m sure Marriann will post some of those in the future.
Thanks Marriann for giving us a once in a lifetime opportunity to be at the finale.

As promised (although a little late), here are a few of the pictures from backstage before the Dancing with the Stars finale.
More pictures to come from behind the scenes. A couple pictures a day for the next few days should be good, right?
Don’t forget to enter to win a signed copy of Julianne’s Holiday CD. We’ll be giving them away really soon. You might as well go out and buy the CD now. If you win the contest, then you can just give the CD to someone you love as a nice Christmas gift.

Thanksgiving was great. We have another day to go to the indoor gocarts, La Reve, and a birthday party for Julianne’s sister Marabeth at the Palazzo in Vegas with the family and People magazine.
I am very proud and was so excited to be at the show this week after flying in from Nashville and Driving to California from Vegas to see Derek Dance and take the trophy tuesday night.
Derek unfortunately could not be with us for Thanksgiving. His rigorous schedule is keeping him so busy. Tuesday night Derek flew on a private plane to New York for Good Morning America and some other talk shows the following day.
He flew back from NY to CA Thanksgiving day and has to be in the studio friday to rehearse with the band and start rehearsing to go on tour with dancing with the stars. His schedule is up at 4 AM, meeting, talking and playing for the radio stations. Then, that night performing for dancing with the stars, and then play at a venue with his band after the show for a couple of hours. Then, start the next day, up at four and same schedule for 5 days a week for two months. I’ll see him either in Vegas or in Nashville.
I’ll start uploading a few pictures from backstage on Dancing with the Stars later tonight or tomorrow.
As I mentioned previously, we’re going to do a few little giveaways just in time for Christmas. Marriann will be giving away 2 autographed copies of Julianne’s recently released Holiday Collection CD. Here’s a short description of what’s found on the CD:
The Julianne Hough Holiday Collection, exclusively at Target stores includes: “Jingle Bell Rock,” “Feliz Navidad,” “It Wasn’t His Child/Mary Did You Know,” “Santa Baby,” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” among others.
If you’re interested in winning one of these CDs, leave a comment on this post. We’ll be giving one of the CDs to a randomly selected comment. The second CD will go to the comment which we like the most. Basically just wow us with something special. Surprise us!
As usual, any comments which are offensive, inappropriate, in bad taste, or we don’t like will be removed. Make sure you use your actual email when filling out your comment. We’ll be using that email to contact the winners. Please do not enter your email in the main comment section unless you want everyone (including spam bots) to see it.
We’ll be ending the contest at the beginning of December in order to get you the CDs in time for the Holidays.
Finally, remember to vote for Derek and Brooke tonight!!

It’s been quite a while since Marriann or myself have been able to post. We’re both going through moves of our family and so it’s been quite busy. Enough with the apologies.
I talked with Marriann today and she had a number of comments about Julianne’s elimination on the show last night. Obviously Marriann was sad to see Julianne eliminated, but she kind of saw it coming considering the scores they received. Marriann told me that Julianne was just sad for Cody since Cody had been working so hard. However, both Marriann and Julianne are cheering on Derek and Brooke and hope they take home the trophy.
Marriann also wanted to share a few thoughts about Brooke. She told me she thinks Brooke is a really hard worker and very serious in her approach to the competition, but still a mom. Marriann is excited to see Derek and Brooke perform in the finals and thinks they have a very good chance.
On a different note, Marriann and I are putting together a contest with a few special giveaways just in time for the Holidays. Check back soon for details of the contest.
Finally, you’ll have a chance to see Derek at one of the Dancing with the Stars tour dates and locations.Newer Posts »
