'DWTS' Season 27, Week 8: The Sparklebarf Live Chat

 COOL WORKOUT, JOE

Is the longest weightlifting session of Grocery Store Joe’s life about to end?

Find out TONIGHT as the remaining couples perform twice: A “Judge’s Choice” round as well as a dance dedicated to “someone special.”

I can’t believe it’s the Semifinals already!?! I mean I know I’ve been checked out (and I’m sorry), but this season has really flown by.

Thanks as always for sparklebarfing here,

 WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

Random hunch, but this MIGHT not be Len’s cup of tea…

Nor anyone else’s — at least behind the scenes, anyway. Just checked in on @DancingABC’s IG Story and got some major LOLs at everyone (except Bobby)’s painstaking efforts to feign interest for tonight’s theme.

On the upside, I do always love watching people dance in cowboy boots! Personally I would never last 10 seconds in any of the fancy normal ballroom heels. So I feel a night like this will be more… realistic for me, I guess? “Down at my level?” “Bottom-fishing?” Ha, whatever. Yeehaw!

XOXO,
Fringe Fairy

'DWTS' Season 27, Week 5: The Sparklebarf Live Chat

Make your moves, magic… it’s DISNEY NIGHT (cue soul-stirring sparkle-sweep across this/any screen)! Will Alexis somehow grant Alan 10 million followers within the blink of a camera flash? Can Bobby Bones float up to the sea level of his competitors (minus Joe) and become “Part Of Their World” of competency? And what’s the over/under on Juan Pablo’s Gaston ponytail distracting from his Viennese Waltz fundamentals? Discuss!

Sadly I remain away from my TV this week but will be all EARS to hear what everyone thinks of tonight’s Week 5 princess party.

XOXO,
F.F.

'DWTS' Season 27, Week 4: The Sparklebarf Live Chat

Welcome to Trio Night - a.k.a. the 16th and possibly final minute of fame for Bachelor franchise darling Jordan Kimball (above right, with Grocery Store Joe and a different, way better Jenna).

Watch and marvel as a bunch of former DWTS “faves” (…Riker? Really?) join the remaining couples earlier in the season than usual in an epic quest for triple-pronged ballroom glory!

XOXO/Cheers to being a bitch,
Fringe Fairy

This dog BBB (better be bedazzled) tonight… OR ELSE.

Happy Monday, everyone! It’s New York Night on Dancing With the Stars and I’m confident that even without a glittering canine, the ballroom version of NYC will be about 8.5 million percent more luminous and uplifting than the many years I spent there rotting in a shoebox. (And yet I still love New York anyways. Now that’s what I call magic.)

Now let the sparkly river run…. and let’s chat!

Coffee/Tea/Me,

Welcome back to the Glitter Galaxy, gem hunters! It’s SEASON 27 of our favorite Monday night fringe fest and I’ve never felt more aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!

Who are you most excited to see tonight? Has there EVER been anyone cuter than Grocery Store Joe? Also what is the general sentiment re: DWTS Juniors? I don’t usually like watching kids do stuff on TV, but then again THEY WILL BE IN A BALLROOM so probably all bets are off… right?

Let’s chat!

XOXO,

'DWTS Atheletes' Week 3: The Sparklebarf Live Chat!

We're halfway through the "seasonette" and it still doesn't feel like the show is on! Tonight, nicest guy in the world David Ross returns to guest-judge (LOL but I'm down w/ it). Plus, three former DWTS athlete standouts return to coach the current couples. Do they remember anything specific about ballroom dancing, or is their time on Planet Mirrorballus merely a sparkly, vaguely burnt-orange blur in the corners of their minds? We're about to find out. Welcome back to Meryl Davis (pictured above with Jenna & Adam), Nastia Liukin, Von Miller, and Grandpa Rossy!

The chat lives on in the comments below.
XOXO,

'DWTS Athletes' Week 2: The Sparklebarf Live Chat!

 @DancingABC on Instagram

@DancingABC on Instagram

Welcome back to the MOST COMPETITIVE FOUR-WEEK EVENT ever! Alan Bersten just exited his trailer dressed as a prince on @DancingABC social media, so it's good to see they're squeezing Disney Night in somehow. One dance in a four-week season roughly equates a full week in a regular season. Right? What is a "night," even? I don't know anymore.

Chat live as the Top 8 take on a solo dance, a team dance, and the threat of more balls to juggle than ever before in their athletic careers!

XOXO,
Fringe Fairy

'DWTS Athletes' Week 1: The Sparklebarf Live Chat!

Welcome, Gem Hunters! I have no idea how this crazy MOST COMPETITIVE EVER four-week season is about to go down, but as always please chat about it here if you like! I'm gonna try and be home for the second half but no promises. It feels weird to be going into this "season" totally blind, but maybe no expectations are the best expectations? Sure! Yeah! 

That said, if Allison Janney isn't in the front row with a bird on her bedazzled shoulder, I'm gonna cry.

XOXO,
Fringe Fairy

'DWTS' Season 25 Finale: The Sparklebarf Live Chat

Three Finalists left! Just ONE Mirrorball Champion will be crowned tonight. Will it be Frankie Muniz, proud owner of "the shimmeriest jazz hands ever"? Jordan "Lindsay Has Made Me A Better Artist" Fisher? Or funky-fresh fiddler Lindsey Stirling? Their fate and a whole lot of sparkly mistletoe hangs in the balance at 9/8c. Pray for me as I try not to sweat to death/get trampled by gawkers at The Grove. 

And (sniff!) thank you for being here. HAPPY HOLIDAYS to gem hunters one and all.

"Challah!"

'DWTS' Semifinals: The Sparklebarf Live Chat

 THE LADY IN PINK...IS DANCING WITH NO ONE

THE LADY IN PINK...IS DANCING WITH NO ONE

Happy Semifinals Night from me three years ago (pictured, lovin' it) and me today (invisible)! Be sure to watch tonight's #DWTS with confetti flying in your face and an ear-to-ear grin as our Final 5 couples recreate ICONIC DANCES from the past. They'll also dance a second round spotlighting just who these celebrities really are. Chills! Prepare for a lot of angst, mattress play, darkness-into-the-light transformations, and a kilt.

Who will move on to next week's Finals? Can you believe it's the middle of November? Discuss...

XOXO,
Fringe Fairy

The chandeliers, smoke machines, and stoic-yet-dramatic facial expressions are all on overdrive Monday, as it's officially HALLOWEEN NIGHT (one day early) on Dancing With the Stars! Behold in horrified fascination as our eight remaining couples must dance a solo routine AND a Team Dance on Week 7. Will the Monster Maze swallow up your favorites? Have the Phantoms of the Ballroom been inside your mind this whole time?!

Discuss!

Welcome to Dancing With the Stars: A Night at the Movies! Whether you're a young screenwriter type looking for that first big break... or a seasoned bigwig brother type with slightly fuller hair -- let's face it: you belong here in Hollywood. Or D-W-T-S-V-I-L-L-E, as the case may be. 

Extra, extra -- read all about Week 6 in the liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive chat below!

'DWTS' Disney Night: The Sparklebarf Live Chat

Greetings, gem hunters and Hidden Mickeys! It's time to forget about your worries and your strife and waltz right into a more-magical-than-ever Planet Mirrorballus for DISNEY NIGHT on #DWTS. Some of the characters even stopped by during Sunday's camera blocking to thoroughly school Lindsey and Mark on how to play music. They had to just stand there and smile and take it! 

Let's chat Disney Night!
