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.


  1. Hey , great to see Mark Ballas, and Marriann. But, i have a question. DO you know if Julianne is going to keep blogging on her Fancast website? I noticed she has not updated it in the past few weeks. Also, is it official that she will not be on DWTS next season? I saw an interview she did on ET or something, and she said she may have spoke to soon about her retirement from DWTS. I really hope she reconsiders, i dont see why she could not do both. Shre reaches more people every week on DWTS than any concert hall. Try to get her to change her mind. Thanks!!

  2. John, can you pass this along to Mark or Derek?

    The lady who owns the website, Karen Klemp, said nobody gave her an offer for the website domain. Somebody on the band’s behalf merely asked if she would be willing to let the name go if she wasn’t using it.

    I think it’s not too late to make her an offer. She sounds like a reasonable person AND she has no problem with the band using that name.

  3. Neal,
    You might post a comment on her Fancast website to see if she’ll still be blogging. It’s not official that she won’t be on the next season of DWTS. She may or may not. They are still talking about it.

    Thanks for checking on it. My guess is that it’s too late to switch names since they’ve changed it to Ballas Hough Band.

  4. Marianne – I haven’t seen any news posted on this website for quite awhile and I know that Julianne and Derek have very active in “making news” and advancing their respective careers.

    Are you busy with the move to Memphis (? – or so I heard) or isn’t this website still active? Just hope all is well with you and with your family and wish you all a holiday that’s blessed.

  5. Any chance Julianne and Mark Ballas will ever get together as a couple? They make are darling couple. After all, Mark is like one of the family already.

  6. Ginny,
    Marriann has been very busy moving to Nashville. Not to mention the standard busy holiday season.

    Mark and Julianne did date when they were younger briefly I believe. I’d never say never, but I wouldn’t expect them to get together in the future.
