Drew Lachey: The Dancing With The Stars “Sink Tone” Will Confuse My Daughter

Drew Lachey Dancing With The Stars All Stars Edition

Drew Lachey who is taking part in ABC’s Dancing With The Star: All Stars Edition a is excited to be a part of the show for a second time because his 6-year-old daughter Isabella Claire will be a part of the experience.
“In season two, my wife [Lea] was nine months pregnant with my daughter, who is now 6,” Lachey tells People.
“They’re going to come out to L.A. for the entire run, for as long as I’m on. For me, personally, I need that balance. I need to have my family close by, so I can do the rehearsals, so I can do the show. Then I can leave it all and go home and be normal and be Dad.”
The tanning is what the former winner expects to confuse his daughter the most.
“The skin tone might throw her off a little bit,” he says, adding with a smile, “But she likes Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so she might just think I’m an Oompa Loompa.”
Fortunately, the 98 Degrees singer feels that the sparkly costumes he and partner Anna Trebunskaya must wear will go over well with Isabella.
“My daughter is very theatrical,” Lachey explains. “She loves her little musicals at school, and being in dance class, and the costumes and all that stuff. She’s seen me in costume for Spamalot, she’s seen me in costume for Hairspray. She’s probably going to be like, ‘Oh, what are you doing? Cleaning the house?’”
How do you think Lachey will do on DWTS? Will he win again?

Why Was Drew Lachey in the Bottom 2 on DWTS All-Stars' First Week?

Dancing With the Stars Season 15 Premiere: Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya
The real surprise of the first Results Show of Dancing With the StarsSeason 15 All-Stars was seeing Drew Lachey and Anna Trebunskaya in the bottom two. And it was the real bottom two, not just the “in jeopardy” bottom two. Scary stuff.

We did not see it coming. Neither did Drew. "I was shocked," he told E! News. "Honestly, it felt like someone punched me in the stomach. I was on Season 2 and I was never on the bottom two, fortunately, and I never wanna be there again."

The Season 2 winner got a score of 21.5 for his Week 1 Performance ShowFoxtrot, putting him in a three-way tie for sixth place. So why were he and Anna stuck in the bottom next to the dearly departed Pamela Andersonand Tristan MacManus?

"I think a lot of it has to do with a lot of people thinking, 'Oh, he won. They're in the middle, he's safe,” Drew speculated to E! “They're fine, he's got a great partner. She's got lots of fans, too.' And that's not the case. In this season, more than any season in the past, you have to vote for the people you want to stay, not just the ones you think might be going home."

Just goes to show you — even champions aren’t safe when they end up in the middle of the pack. Plus, Drew’s Foxtrot was just OK, not exactly the knockout some viewers may have expected from a champion, but also not “bad” enough to merit concern. Head judge Len Goodman said it was all a bit "hard and hectic" for him. Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba also said he got a little stiff and rigid at times. Yes, it was very sexually suggestive, but not suggestive of great dancing. 

Also, Drew and Anna are still working on their connection. They don’t seem to have that instant must-watch spark that some new pairs just have naturally.  (Can you work on something like chemistry or is it just there or not?) 

On top of that, there was some last minute dance order change on Monday, and even though Drew was originally supposed to dance eighth on the premiere, he ended up dancing 10th. His voting number was still listed for #8 and that might’ve confused some people, since it didn’t correspond to his dance placement. Gilles Marini ended up dancing eighth with a voting number for 10th, but maybe Gilles had a high enough score that it didn’t effect him with voters. 

It could be Drew and Anna’s fans just needed this wake-up call and they’ll sail through next week. Or maybe it’s a sign of things to come. We’ll find out next week.

Nick Lachey Makes First Appearance Since Son Camden's Birth to Support Brother Drew at Dancing With the Stars

TV personality Drew Lachey and singer/TV personality Nick Lachey attend the Super Skins Kick Off Party at Hotel 944 featuring Snoop Dogg at The Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach on February 4, 2010 in Miami Beach, Florida.

Two weeks after Nick Lachey and wife Vanessa Minnillo welcomed son Camden John, the proud new papa took a night off from daddy duty -- to support his brother, Drew Lachey, at Monday's Dancing With the Stars: All Stars premiere.
"I don't know if he was here more to support me or more to just get a night out of the house!" Drew, 36, joked to Us Weekly of his older brother, 38, who became a first-time dad on September 12. "I've been that new father twice, so I know how it is!"

Supporting Drew and his pro partner Anna Trebunskaya as they performed the foxtrot, Nick was able to show off his fatherly instincts while bonding with his niece, Drew's six-year-old daughter, Isabella.

"To be able to do this in front of your family to show them, 'Yeah, this is what daddy does' - I take a lot of pride in it. I still teach kids back in Cincinnati, so this gives me a great platform to show them, 'Look guys, I'm still doing this!' It's a win win across the board."
Ann Trebunskaya and Drew Lachey

Drew told Us his daughter, son Hudson, 2, and wife Lea have already been introduced to baby Camden and the extended Lachey family is getting along famously. "My son, before he flew out here, was running around saying, 'We're going to LA to see Uncle Nick and Aunt Vanessa and the baby!' It's great. The Lachey family is expanding and the more the merrier."

Two-week-old Camden is "absolutely adorable," reports Uncle Drew. "He doesn't look like Nick as a baby, he looks like Nick now!"


Does Drew Lachey's Height Put Him At A Disadvantage For Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars?

Drew Lachey Blogs: 'Dancing Is Still Incredibly Hard'

By drew lachey

Drew Lachey is a member of 98 Degrees, starred on Broadway in Monty Python's Spamalot and Rent. He is the season 2 winner of Dancing with the Stars and a founder of Lachey Arts Music Theater Camp. Lachey will be blogging for about his return to the ballroom for the DWTS all-stars season.

It has been six and a half years since I took home the mirror ball trophy on season 2 ofDancing with the Stars

In that time, a lot has changed: from my wife, Lea, being 9 months pregnant with our first child to having the two most amazing kids in the world; from living in Los Angeles tomoving back to our hometown of Cincinnatito raise our family. I have matured as a person and as a performer. 

All that being said ... ballroom dancing is still incredibly hard for me! I'm not just talking difficult. I mean bone-aching, brain-busting, painfully hard. And I am loving every minute of it! 

I am once again paired with an incredible partner, Anna Trebunskaya, and thank God for her. She has had to be coach, teacher, drill sargent, therapist and partner. Not an easy feat. I thoroughly enjoy being challenged and pushing myself to learn something new but throw in roughly 20 million people watching your successes and failures, and you have the potential for a massive ulcer. 

Since this is the all-stars season, just doing what you did in the past is a good way to get sent home early. People are expecting to see something new and exciting. In order to accomplish that, our rehearsals are a combination of playing up the things I do well and working on the areas where I need improvement. 

We started rehearsals in Cincinnati, which was great. I was able to focus during rehearsals and then pass out from exhaustion in my own bed at night. Now we are in L.A. with all 12 – yes, 12 – other couples. To say that there are distractions is the understatement of the century. Whether it is talking to other couples, camera blocking, costume fittings, interviews, photo shoots or just L.A. traffic, there is always something to pull your focus off of the most important thing – learning the dance
Week one is the foxtrot so it is time for me to channel my inner Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly and try to bring home a second mirror-ball trophy! (My first one has been super glued back together more times than I'd like to admit.) 

See you on the dance floor!

DWTS’ contestant confident about return


By Amber Dowling

Drew Lachey prepares to out twinkle-toe the 'All-Stars'

Drew Lachey always knew he would return to Dancing With the Stars given another shot. So when he was asked to be a part of the upcoming All-Star cast, he had zero hesitations.
“I’ve said all along that if there was another show I would be doing it, just because I had such a good time doing it,” Lachey told TV Guide Canada in a recent interview. “I hosted the show … I feel like I’ve done everything except hair and makeup. So for me it’s like coming home.”
When Lachey first competed on the ABC reality series back in 2006, he and professional partner Cheryl Burke outshone the likes of Tia Carrere, George Hamilton, Lisa Rinna, Jerry Rice and Stacy Keibler to be crowned the second-season champions.
This time around, Lachey admits he’s a little older, but may be even more prepared to take on the cha-cha and the quickstep with professional partner Anna Trebunskaya.
“[I’m going to] drink a lot,” Lachey joked, when asked about his preparations. “The big thing I’ve been doing is stretching. The older you get the more you need to. Every time I work out I stretch … I’m in better shape now than when I did the show the first time.”
Given the stiff competition, the former 98 Degrees crooner knows it’s a good thing. When the show’s 15th season kicks off Monday night, he’ll be facing a handful of fellow former champs, larger than life personalities, and even polarizing figures.
Among those returning to compete are Olympians Apolo Anton Ohno and Shawn Johnson, reality stars Bristol Palin and Melissa Rycroft, actors Gilles Marini, Kristie Alley, Kelly Monaco, Pamela Anderson and Sabrina Bryan, fellow singer Joey Fatone, NFLer Emmitt Smith and Indy racer Hélio Castroneves.
When asked who the one person Lachey was surprised not to see back was, the celeb dancer didn't hesitate.
“Kristi Yamaguchi,” he revealed. “She was beautiful when she did it, she made it look effortless and graceful. There are a lot of talented people who did really well, but for some reason they weren’t back, or the chemistry of the cast, or scheduling or whatever. Fourteen seasons, and the Top 3 of each one … that’s a lot of people who aren’t back.”

Drew Lachey Has Never Had a Cup of Coffee in His Life

Drew Lachey has danced his way back into the national spotlight in recent years, after serving his frosted-tip time back in the day as a boy band heartbreaker in 98 Degrees. He won the second season of Dancing with the Stars, and is back for this season as a Dancing with the Stars All-Star, which you can watch tonight on ABC. --Sam Dean
I usually get up at 6:45 or 7 AM. I have a 6-year-old, so I get up, get her ready for school, get her breakfast, run her to school, and then I come home. That's when I'm able to eat.

Usually I have something just to give me some energy--a granola bar, Cliff bar, or a brand of granola made here in Cincinnati called Whirlybird--before I go to the gym. When I come back, I try to load up on protein. Fruit is big, too--apples, oranges, cantaloupe. We're fruities in our house.
Every once in a while, I like to splurge and get donuts or coffee cake--something that makes me feel guilty for the rest of the day. You can't deprive yourself completely.

My daughter eats really really well: Honey Nut Cheerios, whole grain pancakes or waffles, or fruit and yogurt. Fruit, orange juice and water are staples. And then my son just eats whatever his sister's eating--he's a little garbage compactor. Between the two of them, they can eat a whole cantaloupe. They just inhale fruit.

I've never had a full cup of coffee in my entire life. I don't like the taste, and frankly it saves me a fortune. My vice is Diet Coke, which some people argue is a lot worse for you than coffee. Fountain pop is the best, so I'll take it that way if available. If not, it's just a can over ice. I like it in a glass because it's like a fine wine; you have to let it breathe and let out the carbonation a bit.

When I'm dancing 6-8 hours a day, I have a lot higher caloric intake. I like having some meat on my bones--I don't want to look skinny--so I try to stay in good shape and exercise, but still look healthy. If I'm dancing too much and don't have enough calories, I'll start wasting away.

There's this stuff called goetta that's huge in Cincinnati. It's a German meat product--pork mixed with oats--that goes back a long way. I like to fry up some goetta and have breakfast for dinner. 

Dancing With the Stars’ is back in step with all-stars like Drew Lachey and Shawn Johnson


Shake out the excess sequins and polish those dancing shoes. “Dancing With the Stars” is back.
And this time around, it’s second chances for everyone involved — even for the winners.

Just ask Drew Lachey, who took home the coveted mirror-ball trophy on “Dancing With the Stars” in the show’s second season, and who will return with 12 other former competitors to vie for the prize again on Monday night.
“I need one for each side of the mantel, yes,” the former 98 Degrees boy-bander laughed about competing for a second time.

“My life has done a complete 180 since I last did the show. I mean, my wife was pregnant with my first child and we were living in L.A. at the time, and now I have two kids and we live in Ohio.

“So my life and my perspective and my priorities have completely shifted since the last time I was on the show.”
As they should.

It’s been six years since Lachey first stepped onto the well-lacquered dance floor with Cheryl Burke to wow audiences and judges with their energy and pizzazz (to this day, their freestyle dance “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” remains a fan favorite).

Since it first cha-cha-cha’d its way onto America’s radar back in 2005, “Dancing With the Stars” has played host to nearly 200 celebrities, more than its share of injuries and wardrobe malfunctions, and the occasional monkey suit (Bristol Palin, we’re looking at you).

Competitors have run the gamut from professional athletes to teen heartthrobs to actors to singers to models to reality TV stars. The show even gave Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak a spin on the floor.
But though much has changed in the ballroom — skimpier outfits, head-to-head dance-offs and the dreaded “instant dance” — it’s the real-life changes off set that have affected the stars the most as they prepare for their return in the all-star season.

“To me this feels like a completely different ball game,” season eight finalist Melissa Rycroft mused. “After going through pregnancy, labor and delivery, I feel like I have a whole new body. I definitely feel older than I did last time, even though that was only three years ago and I’m only 29!”
Rycroft, who came in third in her season after Gilles Marini and champion Shawn Johnson, said her 19-month-old daughter, Ava, now factors into the intensity of her practices as much as her ability to kick her leg up by her head.
“I want to be there every day as much as I can with my daughter, so I think that’s what’s going to keep me happy and sane as far as the show goes,” she said. Luckily for her, partner Tony Dovolani knows where she’s coming from, with three young kids of his own as well.

“When it comes to practice, we don’t want to go in and waste time,” the former “Bachelor” contestant said. “We go in and we’re ready to go because we both have other places that we need to be at the end of the day, and honestly, they’re places that we want to be, like home. With our kids.”

It’s this no-nonsense attitude that will undoubtedly drive the All-Star season, executive producer Conrad Green assessed. The returning group is fiercely dedicated, and a big part of what will make the competition so stiff this time is the personal investment each celebrity has made in a comeback.

“We require quite a lot of time from people, and they all know now just how much work they’ll need to put into the show, so I think it’s a testament of how much they enjoyed the experience that they said yes,” executive producer Conrad Green said. “It’s going to be a really tough one, a close call from the audience more than ever, I think.”

The judges will be stricter this time around as well, he explained, because “we’re not talking about random characters anymore in week one, we’re talking about celebrities who’ve gone through to the final weeks of competition.”
Along with Lachey and Rycroft, celebrities who will return to the dance floor include Pamela Anderson, Kirstie Alley, Apolo Ohno, Shawn Johnson, Emmitt Smith, Helio Castroneves, Gilles Marini, Joey Fatone, Bristol Palin, Sabrina Bryan and first-season winner Kelly Monaco.

For Monaco, who set the bar when she won in the show’s first iteration back in July 2005, coming back to the ballroom more than seven years later has been a daunting task.

When the "General Hospital" star first signed on for the show, it was still in its earliest stages, and most people “had no idea what ballroom dancing was.”

“It’s like a huge production now,” she said, reflecting on the show’s progression over the years. “When we did it we were building it from the ground up. There were no expectations. There wasn’t even the cha-cha yet! But now you know what you’re signing up for when you come on the show.”

Fellow soap star Gilles Marini agrees. The “Switched at Birth” actor, who came in as a runner-up after Shawn Johnson in season eight, isn’t going to let the mirror ball slip through his fingers again.
“I want to dance like a pro,” he quipped. “I won’t settle for dancing like a celebrity. I want people to not notice any difference between my partner and I. They said that during my previous season, and I took that as a compliment, it’s something that I want to hear from the judges.

Drew Lachey (season two winner)
Partner: Anna Trebunskaya
Handicap: Drew Lachey is currently making a comeback with his group, 98 Degrees, and the former boy-bander has proven that given the opportunity, he will definitely rise to the occasion. Though he’s now paired with Anna Trebunskaya, Lachey could show that he can translate his choreographed boy-band moves into a more studied technical practice on the “Dancing” stage, regardless of who his partner is. Fans of the singer are loyal. 10:1

Drew Lachey & Anna - Foxtrot - DWTS (Allstars Week 1)

Drew Lachey: ‘I’ve still got it’

Written by jkiesewetter

Drew Lachey told viewers that “I’ve still got it” on the “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” debut tonight, but the judges weren’t totally convinced.

Lachey, who won season two in spring 2006, was criticized for being too rigid in his fox trot with Anna Trebunskaya. He needs to “soften up and relax,” said Len Goodman.
Bruno Tonioli called him “Dynamic Drew,” and gave him the most praise: “It looked like you danced with each other forever… The first time, I loved it.”
Judges gave them a 21.5, a middle of the road score for the night. (A new wrinkle this year lets judges award a one-half point  for the first time.) He was tied for fifth with actress Kelly Monaco and race car driver Helio Castroneves.

Jeff Pulls a Tebow

Drew Lachey, others ready to rumba on ‘Dancing with the Stars: All Stars’


Drew Lachey is knee deep in rehearsals forDancing with the Stars: All Stars.

The 36-year-old won the show’s second season and thinks he still has what it takes to be a champion.
“It’s a great opportunity to show that season two, yes, was early on in the show but us champions and early winners can still compete with these new people. They’re talking about how intense the show is now and how much harder it’s gotten and there might be some truth to that, but I kind of take that as a personal challenge for me to come out and represent and do well,” said the 98 Degrees singer.
This time around Lachey will be paired with Ana Trebunskaya. His former partner Cheryl Burkewill dance with Emmitt Smith.
Lachey described not working with Burke as “bittersweet.”
“There’s history there, and we know how to work together and how to dance together, but there’s also excitement to do something new. A new partner, a new dynamic, a new style, new choreography, new techniques,” he said.

Nick Lachey Gets Parenting Advice From 98 Degrees Bandmate Jeff Timmons

By Valerie Nome

Now that Nick Lachey and wife Vanessawelcomed son Camden John into the world Sept. 12, he can turn to his fellow 98 Degreesbandmates for parenting advice.
Younger brother Drew is a father of two, and bandmate Jeff Timmons has a brood of five little ones, which includes two stepchildren and three children. (The oldest is 13, and the youngest is ten months!)
“I think Nick’s going to be great,” Jeff tells me. “He’s great with my kids, and he’s a great uncle to Drew’s kids.”
What would he tell him?
“Every kid’s different,” Jeff says. “Every parent has their own thing. My whole thing is: look, as much as you’re a parent, be a friend to your kids and listen to them. Listen to what they say. Let them know that they have an open line of communication with you.”
One thing the youngsters will enjoy is new music from 98 Degrees, whose hits includedGive Me Just One Night (Una Noche)My EverythingThank God I Found YouThis Gift, I Do (Cherish You)The Hardest Thing, Because of You and Invisible Man.   
They'll also be treated to a reunion tour, which will follow performances last month on the Today show and at Hershey Park's Mixtape Festival. The gigs marked their first time performing together in eleven years.

Nick Lachey: Son Camden Is "the Most Amazing Thing That Has Happened in My Life"


Proud new dad!
Nick Lachey tweeted a heartfelt message Monday about welcoming son Camden John last Wednesday with wife Vanessa Minnillo.

"Officially in cheesy dad mode," the Sing-Off host, 38, confessed. "Camden is easily the most amazing thing that has happened in my life. Vanessa Lachey and I are truly blessed!"

"We are incredibly proud to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, Camden John Lachey," Lachey and Minnillo, 31, who wed in July 2011, told Us Weekly in a statement early Thursday. "Born today at 6:54 pm. He came into this world at 8lbs 9oz and 21 inches. Love has truly been redefined for both of us." 

Lachey's loving tweet Monday was the first time he spoke about his son's birth to his followers. New mom Minnillo has taken a break from Twitter since Camden's arrival.

Over the summer, Lachey opened up to Us about all the changes he and Minnillo had gone through in the past year. "You get married, you get pregnant, and it all kind of happened so fast," he said. "But it's very exciting!"

Drew and the Stars of ABC Television Stand Up To Cancer

Will Joey Fatone & Drew Lachey be 'DWTS' Rivals?


More than five years after he finished as runner-up on Dancing with the Stars, Joey Fatone is back again with partner Kym Johnson to give it his best shot at winning the show's first All-Stars season. With the competition as hot as ever, Fatone discussed a potential feud with boy band rival Drew Lachey.
"There is no smack-down; there is no competition with 98 Degrees' Drew Lachey because there really is no competition," the 'N Sync member said with a smile. "It's a friendly competition. I've known Drew...for many years so it's kind of funny we're going against each other, so I think it's going to be kind of fun."
atone said that although he and Lachey, who won Dancing's second season, are friendly with one another, there is still some healthy competition between them that will be seen on the show.
"We do like to bust each other's chops a lot, so be prepared to see a lot of smack talk on the show," he said. "Once he gets in the room with me, we'll have a lot of laughs."
"We remained friends the whole time, so it is a different dynamic now dancing with each other. I guess you know how to push my buttons," she said, pointing at Fatone.
Follow Joey Fatone's return to Dancing with the Stars beginning September 24 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
