    Witney Carson

    Celebrity professional dancer, entrepreneur, model, fashion blogger and skin cancer spokesperson Witney Carson returns this September to the Emmy-nominated series Dancing with the Stars for its incredible 23rd season.

    You may remember the twinkling braces of a Salt Lake City teen, smiling from ear to ear after nailing her audition on So You Think You Can Dance. From there, Carson rose to all star status, grand jete-ing over to Dancing with the Stars, winning season 19 with dynamo dancer Alfonso Ribeiro and pirouetting her towards the finals last season with Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller.

    Carson recently married high school sweetheart Carson McAllister on New Year's Day in hometown Salt Lake City, and together, the two have launched witneycarson.com, an all-inclusive website showcasing her strategy of fitness, food and fun into daily life that allows her to excel as a professional dancer. Read her blog for insight into the life of this 21st Century professional or check out her newly launched Witney Shop, where you can buy apparel ranging from dance wear to beachwear.

    Carson is as driven philanthropically as she is professionally. She is an active member of The Skin Cancer Foundation, an organization that supported her through the difficult treatment for melanoma. She is open about her own history with the disease and relishes the opportunity to share her experience with various children's organizations and skin cancer charities to raise awareness and educate the population, youth especially, on proper skin and health care.

    I could see him going one of two ways. Either he's doing this because his agent begged him to, will just go through the motions and be done soon OR he'll be one who sees it as a chance to be back in the spotlight, discover that the contorting he's done for comedy translates well to controlling his body for dance and surprise everyone. I tend to lean towards the agent begging him side. But if he comes in wanting to do well, Whitney can do a lot with a partner who has the heart to really dedicate to it.

    Someone said that comedians don't usually have longevity on this show, but if he can move those feet as well as he can bob his head......maybe he will last awhile? He is funny, so I'm hoping to enjoy some laughs for as long as he will be able to last.
    When you canít control whatís happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to whatís happening. Thatís where your power is.

    My heart broke for Chris Kattan last night!!!! I never knew his physical comedy stunts had hurt his back so badly!!!!! When he mentioned people saying to him "I miss the old Chris" and he looked so pained by that I had a few tears for him.

    Agreed. He just seemed so defeated.

    I felt bad for him but at the same time his talking time with Erin seemed uncomfortably awkward. I read somewhere earlier that he felt he would still be there if they had brought up his injury and struggle in the first week. Thought he'd get more sympathy for what he's been through. It was awkward too.
