This week my partner Tony Dovolani and I are doing the rumba. The dance is similar to the Argentine tango, except without the lifts and tricks. It’s very passionate, sensual and sultry. Tony calls it the dance of love and says the emotion should be like making love on the dance floor – which is a little awkward and weird! I’m definitely still getting used to it. Thankfully, our Argentine tango last week was very up close and personal, so that kind of prepared me for this.
It’s also TV-theme week, and the producers surprised us with the theme song to The Hills, “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield. Every week is a new surprise! When Tony showed me which song we were assigned, I was really excited. “Unwritten” is a great song, and I love Natasha Bedingfield. Every time I hear that song, I automatically think of the intro to The Hills. It really brings back all those memories. Now I get to create a new memory, and I’ll never forget this either.
Tony and I are going to bring everything that was on The Hills – the drama, flirtation and relationship ups and downs – into our dance. It’s going to be very fun!
