    She doesn't need Mandy anymore. She's a Chmerkovskiy now! 😉

    Now let's get rid of the big troupe-riddled production numbers and back to the celeb and their pro alone on the dance floor.

    I don't consider the mini season a real season.

    Am I the only one who laughs when Maks bypasses meaningful social media posts and pictures posted by Erin and Meryl and Heather (you know, the partners he's still so close with) but likes random stupid stuff posted by Zendaya and Rumer and Normani? LOL

    Cheryl has not had as much success as I would've thought, but she has hosted morning/talk shows and she did get the Dance Moms gig. I'm not sure what happened or why she didn't pursue the show she did with Kristi, Meryl and Charlie because it looked really good and I would've liked to have seen it. Karina went back to the competition and judging circuit and just recently retired. She hasn't had a breakout mainstream career, but I'm not sure she was looking for that. She's done some movies and TV appearances and seems very involved with her dance school. She also is the one who was courted for Forever Tango, something Maks owes her for big time. I am curious to see what she does now that she's retired. I noticed last night she's doing BWAT again with Tony, Anna and Damian. Maks's biggest problem is that he can't act and he spent too many years pursuing that after Kirstie Alley told him he could be the next John Travolta.

    I would dump Jenna in a heartbeat. I feel like she and her sister-in-law cemented their places with the show the day they set their sights on the Chmerkovskiy brothers who, unlike many of the other original pros, have not been able to move their careers past the show. Although I'm not sure Val wants to and why should he? Right now, he's pretty much seen as the king of DWTS. I don't want to hear about Peta and Jenna winning mirrorballs.....while Peta's win with Donald was legit, I will never see her win with Nyle that way. And Jenna's win with Adam was just a joke. Years ago, one would have thought Derek and Maks would be the two to really break out from the show. Derek has done that, but Maks's career outside the show has turned into a joke that relies on him hitching his wagon to Peta's projects and being some kind of nutritional motivational Instagrammer. Funny for a guy who used to be photographed leaving clubs so drunk that Tony practically had to carry him out.

    I think Val is as close as they have to the original pros.....probably because he was around back then. Also, unlike his brother, he seems to enjoy and appreciate being on the show so I don't think he's going anywhere. Artem has the potential to reach that level but they've got to give him a real shot with a good partner. The others.....well, like I said, they may be good dancers but they don't have that "it" factor that made the original pros so good. Jonathan and Alec didn't have it, which is why they didn't last very long or reach the level of popularity of the other guys. That's how I look at Keo, Alan and Sasha. Gleb just flat out annoys the crap out of me and after the failed experiment when they first brought him in to replace Maks, I don't know why they keep trotting him out there.

    I still think Henry was the worst out of all of them, but pretty much all the pros who came up through the troupe are guilty of it. And they didn't try to hide it, even though them being made pros would mean existing pros would be out of a job.

    It's very hard for me to warm to the pros who spent time in the troupe campaigning with Twitter fans to become pros.

    I know people get very attached to the pros but I think the level of talent and charisma between the original pros and this current crop is night and day. I would love to see them bring back some of the old pros (Karina, Tony) while still maintaining some of the more popular pros from the current group (Sharna, Emma). I think one of the things hurting them is that except for Val and maybe Artem, they don't have the level of male pros they used to have. They may all be good dancers but they don't have the talent or the personality of Derek, Mark, Maks, Tony or even Louis.

    I thought I read that Kelly, like Kym, was a bridesmaid.

    That surprised me too considering how close she is with her sister, as well as Kym and Kelly Monaco, both of whom she's known a lot longer. I was also surprised Tony wasn't at the wedding considering how close he is to Cheryl.

    Years ago, I remember paparazzi pictures of Maks walking around NYC wearing an Obama shirt. And he was privately hired by the Clintons to choreograph Chelsea's wedding dance. I think he's always been 100% left leaning.

    Peta was desperate to become an actress (something she was training for and then put on hold to get Maks back) so I think she would've taken any role that was offered to her.

    Jenna and Val are in NYC doing ANOTHER wedding photo shoot? How much are these two going to cash in on their marriage doing photo shoots? What's next, a photo shoot of them trying to get pregnant?
