Samantha Harris, host of Dancing With The Stars, also goes backstage for The Insider with her Sam Cam each week. Last night, she talked with all of the dancers, includingMelissa Rycroft, who made and outstanding comeback after her injury last week gaining a perfect 30 on her second dance. She also asked Cheryl Burkeif Gilles did anything special for her birthday on Sunday. Keep reading for the rest of the interview…
Sam: How great did it feel to not only get out there and dance, but to knock those scores out of the park?
Melissa: It was unbelievable. We were back there and I told Tony, “I don’t care what happens out there. I can fall, forget the steps, or anything… I’m just so happy that we get to go back out there because it was miserable last week.”
Sam: Well, I’ve got to say, you not only gave it your all but you gave us a little something extra [referring to her wardrobe mishap where her breast was exposed].
Melissa: [sheepishly] Oh man…
Sam: Now are you going to go home and watch your Tivo of your performance in slow motion and say, “Okay, how much is showing?”
Melissa: No.I was assured that there wasn’t alot showing, so I’m going to trust those who told me that.
Sam: [looks the camera] I told her there was nothing naughty showing.
Melissa: [looking at Tony] I figure he would have done something had we been out there and I was blissfully unaware.
Then Sam moves on to Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke.
Sam: You guys came in to tonight feeling that it would be smooth sailing, these were the dances you knew you could nail and you had great songs – how do you think it went tonight?
Gilles: I think Fox Trot went very well. It was surprising to me, I can’t believe it went so smooth – I was relaxed. I was so anticipating the Rumba. Then the Rumba came up and I was so excited that I rushed things a bit. My bad.
Sam: I want to know – Cheryl’s birthday was yesterday. Did you get any special presents cus the big party is tonight?
Cheryl: The party is tonight. Gilles did surprise me yesterday with a big birthday cake and Jewel sang Happy Birthday. It was so sweet.
