Hello, dancers! Welcome to week seven of Dancing with the Stars!
This week we all had to learn two dances, our solo and our group numbers. My partner Sasha and I are dancing the samba and it’s all about moving the hips and pointing your toes.
It was a little rough for us because we flew back to Jersey on the redeye right after the show on Monday. I had to do a lot of press for my show Snooki & JWOWW this week and we rehearsed from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. every night. By the time it was time to dance, my body was dead.
