Did you catch Monday’s premiere episode of Dancing with the Stars? Season 17 kicked off with a bang and there are some big changes in the ballroom!
Co-host (and ModernMom CEO) Brooke Burke told us about some of the new twists, including how this season, cast members hang out in what Tom Bergeron calls the “Sexy Bus Stop” next to the judges.
The show has also changed it up backstage so stars can rehearse right up until the moment they take the floor… “And believe me, they’re using every second of rehearsal time,” Brooke joked.
As for her wardrobe, this season our favorite glam mom may be trading in her fancy footwear for something with a little more mobility!
“Last night’s show was one of the most intense physically for me,” she admitted. “Now I’m running up three flights of steps in stilettos to do the interviews – talk about cardio! I may have to start lacing up my Skechers under my dress to give my feet a little comfort, especially since no one can see my cute shoes anyway!”
Last but not least, we asked her – were nerves running high in the ballroom?
“I think the only person more nervous than Jack Osbourne was his mom!” she said with a smile. (Sharon Osbourne was in the crowd for moral support.)
“I can totally understand, as a mom myself,” she added. “I know when I competed my family was so much more nervous than me!
Who do you think will take home the Mirror Ball trophy this season? We can’t wait to find out!
