Speaking of “Dancing With the Stars,” everybody is talking about your chemistry with your partner Jacoby Jones. Of course these questions are going to come up, and I told Jacoby to pretty much expect them to happen because we did a great job with the Rumba which is the dance of love. Well, we do know that Jacoby loves dancing because he’s been showing his talented moves in end-zone dances after his touch down.
So we know he’s always loved dancing and I’ve seen him dance with his mom, but I want him to not just think of dancing as something that’s fun to do but also as a way of expressing himself.
So when I started dancing again it allowed me to learn ways of expressing myself, it gave me an out and it taught me discipline and it taught me how to respect, appreciate, and come from a place of kindness and love. Zendaya and Val (Chmerkovskiy), we’re all waiting for Zendaya and Val to get on the floor because it looks like two professionals are dancing together that’s how good they are.And I think that’s why dance is so important, not to mention it’s a crazy workout. But everybody this season, you know, if maybe they’re not the strongest dancer, they have the best story or a great personality.IMAGE DISTRIBUTED FOR MTV – Dancer Karina Smirnoff arrives at the MTV Movie Awards in Sony Pictures Studio Lot in Culver City, Calif., on Sunday April 14, 2013.(Photo by John Shearer/Invision for MTV/AP Images) What does dancing teach people?We have yet to see a star on our show to actually gain weight, rather everybody loses weight on the show. Ralph Macchio is one of my dear friends, one of my best friends – the whole Macchio clan as a matter of fact – Phyllis his wife, Julia and Daniel his kids. So anyone is a threat and at that point it’s hard to chase after other people so we concentrate on our self.
So it’s a great way of being physically active, keeping happy endorphins in your body and to learn core values that every kid should really learn in life. I love the guy to death, he’s doing so amazing on the show. This show is such an intense experience but it’s also a way to meet new friends, to become friends with people you wouldn’t meet otherwise. Before Jacoby’s run on “Dancing With the Stars” is over, is there anything you hope to accomplish with him?After an impressive performance with Macchio last week, the dancing duo surprisingly failed to impress the judges that night with their energetic and excited jive that according to the trio, distracted the Karate Kid star. But with last week's scores taken into account, the pair are still at the top of the leader board, with 45 total points.Wrestler Chris Jericho was also in attendance at last night's bash alongside his real-life partner, wife, Kelly Kelly.The WWE pro looked relaxed in an open-neck shirt, a pair of blue jeans and a checked scarf.His beautiful blonde wife was wrapped up in a little black dress, long woollen cardigan and a pair of charcoal heels.So I figured I’d show not necessarily my best side but a side that no one has seen before. [That] is why I did it.” Ralph revealed that his wife of 24 years – Phyllis, his teenage sweetheart – was supportive of her actor husband’s decision to bare his bottom on screen.
