And yeah — much like this story on Tango’s website muses about the onstage-only heat that’s generated between Dancing with the Stars’ two-stepping twosomes — I three-quarters wish that Shawn were dancing in the sheets with Mark Ballas. Despite the whole, you know, potential ick factor of her being underage and all.
*Translation: Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, all of 16, won this season’s Dancing with the Stars mirrorball trophy Tuesday night. She was considered a way-underog behind French-fried throb du coeur Gilles Marini, who qualifies as an aforementioned “star” because he gave us all a peep at his pecker in the Sex and the City movie.
According to Tony Dovolani, a pro on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars, dancing can improve your relationship, and not just with Bruno Tonioli. In fact, Dovolani spends time between seasons helping couples cha-cha, waltz, and salsa their groove back.
“It’s almost like you have a newfound love for each other,” Dovolani told Tango. “Discovering new steps together teaches couples to interact with each other. They’re looking into each other’s eyes, anticipating the next move. It opens up energy channels of feeling and connection. It rejuvenates everything.”
Can Dovolani even teach the broken-hearted to boogie back? ‘Cause we’re rooting for Rycroft in more ways than one.
