This and That

Cheryl Burke and Derek Hough performed on Regis and Kelly this morning.  Well, it was shown this morning.  If you're enough of a dork to follow them on twitter, you'll know that the segment was taped on Sunday.

In case you didn't get the memo when Stars On Ice announced their cast, Joannie Rochette will not be competing this season.  She will be touring with Stars On Ice in Japan, the US and Canada and earning $ doing it.  Next we'll find out that Sasha Cohen and Evan Lysacek won't be competing.  It is unclear when an announcement for 'My Terese' with be forthcoming.

Adrian Schultheiss split with his coach after Skate America.  Tony Wheeler has the details.

Kelly Ripa went backstage at KA to perform with Cirque du Soleil.

Can't get enough DWTS?  Burn The Floor, a ballroom dance tour, is traveling around the country.  Mark Ballas is guest starring in three cities.  He is in Raleigh, NC Nov. 30- Dec. 5, Houston from Dec 14-19 and Pittsburgh from Dec 28- Jan 2.

Just like those woodwind players in concert band, Yuna Kim and Naomi Nari Nam are two Koreans who are sticking together.  The two spent Thanksgiving together in Los Angeles.

More of Anastasia Sidorova at Top Gym:

Kristina Sidorova also competed well.  (Note: Anastasia and Kristina are not related.)

The Crazy Twins brought a gymnast to Top Gym.

Ariana Guerra:

Fellow Texan Ericha Fassbender also competed:


  1. I thought the crazy twins were at WGA not Stars Houston?

  2. When is Anastasia Sidorova old enough for Srs?

    Also Ariana Guerra and Ericha Fassbender?

  3. They coach Ariana Guerra.

    Both Sidorovas are 14 and it is just about December, so I'm guessing they'll be seniors in 2012.

  4. Guerra's floor is just horrible. The music, the leaps, the choreo....

  5. Is Ariana Guerra a spitting image of Nansy Damianova?

  6. Good baitova from A Sidorova.

  7. Poor Adrian Schultheiss. I don't think I like the way the coach treated him or the way he handled the situation. I hope that he is happy on his new journey.

  8. I feel for Schultheiss as well.

    Not surprising about Rochette. She's been so busy this year cashing in on her Olympic success. And she's already a World and Olympic medalist, so I guess now is as good a time as any to tour. But based on how she skated at the Japan Open this year, she could have been in serious contention to win the World title.

  9. both Ariana and Ericha train at Stars. Looks like Debbie is now there coaching and Deana is listed as a choreographer. Ericha has been at Stars, but Ariana came from WGA.

  10. Fassbender looks like a baby Mattie Larson.
