Recently, E! News got the inside scoop from former Republican Congressman, Tom DeLay, as he geared up for his dancing debut with partner Cheryl Burke.Â Tom dished on hisÂ newÂ Dancing With The Stars physique, spray-tanning, and high heels.
“I lost 20 pounds, so I can wear the tight pants,” DeLay told E! “I’ve known I was going to do Dancing With The Stars for three months now, so the moment I agreed to do it, I started working out really hard and heavy.” “I’m working on the six-pack, but they said if I need one, they’d put one on me,” DeLay continued. “The makeup girls will give me one!”
DeLay added that although he was up for being spray-tanned, he has had a hard time adjusting to the footwear.”They put me in Latin shoes with high heels, and my toes almost fell off the first week,” Delay explained. “So I went to a podiatrist, and I got a little problem with my feet. A cortisone shot cured me up.”
Dancing With The StarsÂ kicks off Monday, September 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
