The seaweed salad situation was a wakeup call for me.
Ashley Roberts is so beautiful!! I have seen the Pussy Cat Dolls perform in New York City, and they were amazing. So it is super safe to call me a fan. I was so excited to see her. I just knew that Ashley had some news to share with us this week and I couldn’t wait to hear it. It is always a pleasure meeting someone who is so successful and really sweet. It was such a treat getting to meet her! I was kind of inspired to grow my hair out. I was looking at Ashley and hoping that my body could possibly look like that one day!! Love Ashley!!
Getting to party like a rock star with Mel B, I can honestly say was one of the highlights of my life.
Mel B is so fantastic and gorgeous and spending time with her means a lot to me!! What a city, Las Vegas!!! Haze was so alive and pumping, it had been so long since any of us had been out dancing. So to do it up with Mel B and having a shot with her was the best way to celebrate ever!!! I couldn’t wait to tear that dance floor up and show Vegas the Dance Your A** Off final five!!!! Club dancing is always a blast, and I really enjoyed myself. Top club moment ever!!!
Buffet. The word alone gives me anxiety!! The buffet in Vegas was really difficult. There was just about every single thing you could possibly want to eat in an unlimited supply. It was really scary putting my willpower to the test like that. The hardest thing for me was passing the cheese table. I missed cubed cheese so much!!! It’s the little things!!! The seaweed salad situation was a wakeup call for me. I felt really confused and a little sad that I could have possibly messed up my meal at the buffet. Just a bit upsetting and scary…like what just happened???
I mean it with all of my heart when I say that Oskar is the best dance partner and friend ever! Not only did he give me 150 % always, but always wanted me to be that best dancer that I could possibly be and I love him dearly. I was so happy to perform this style with him because let’s face it…my Oskar is gorgeous!!! Our chemistry and connection was so strong that I knew it would only help with burlesque week. I thought our summertime kiss was fresh!!! Couldn’t wait for us to sexy it up and seduce EVERYONE!!!
The news that I actually gained a pound this week was devastating. I was like, oh my goodness I am going to be the only person in DYAO history to gain weight on the show. I was mortified. I was embarrassed. I kept on thinking to myself, what are people at home going to think? I almost felt like I was knocked out. Barely breathing!! All I kept thinking was why…how could this have happened to me? I felt with that 1 pound, I had lost everything!! So sad!!
Words cannot express the sadness that rushed through my body when I found out I was being eliminated!! I don’t think I will ever get over that feeling of dread and regret and just emptiness that I felt when I found out I was going home. My soul cried a million tears and my ego and pride suffered greatly. I knew I would grieve DYAO in a serious way!! I was so heartbroken and hurting so much!! What...I wasn’t going to see Oskar tomorrow?? (lol). Oh NOOOO!!
I was still super proud of my accomplishments and so, so grateful for every opportunity that DYAO has given me!!! I will stay motivated because I have already made it this far. I never in my wildest dreams thought I could actually pull this off, so to have had a chance—that means the world to me. I owe it to Dance Your A** Off and myself and everyone who will be watching to continue my success. In a way, my setback is even more fuel for my fire. I am not going to give up or fail and I can do anything!!!!! I was given a wonderful gift, and I am so appreciative of everything that I received on the show. I will carry that love and joy with me always!!
