AMAZING CHOREOGRAPHY, TRUE TO LIFE

I had chills watching this routine.

I didn’t watch until today.

Like before, I’ve been following this season’s celebrities.

The ones remaining are all so good.

Alexa’s story is so touching.

She shared her innermost feelings and struggles about her body image.

A night to remember … a choreography to admire.

Alexa PeñaVega reveals struggle with bulimia on ‘DWTS,’ sent home despite perfect night

It was an emotional and perfect night for actress Alexa PeñaVega on “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday, November 9, 2015.

The “Spy Kids” actress danced her way into the hearts of the judges with two perfect scores for the night, but it was not enough to bring her back for next week.

The 27-year-old opened the night with an emotional contemporary dance after revealing that she struggled with an eating disorder for many years.

“I remember shooting this movie, and the producers kept telling me, ‘You’re just too fat,’ and as child you don’t know how to handle that,” she told pro partner Mark Ballas during a pre-taped rehearsal.

“So from that moment, for the next six years of my life, I had an eating disorder.”

PeñaVega revealed she had bulimia

“I struggled with bulimia for so long, and, even though I got through it, I feel think like a lot of my insecurities still with my body is from that,” she added.

Ballas used her experience as inspiration for the choreography, and PeñaVega was more than willing to take it on. She said she wants to use her story to help others struggling with their own demons.

“This was a part of my life that I was also so afraid of people finding out, but I knew that at some point I was going to talk about because I knew I wanted to help people,” PeñaVega said.

“It’s intense, but I think strangely beautiful.”

HAPPY SWITCH-UP NIGHT

The competition is heating up.

Last night was almost perfect.

The switch up proved to be the needed push for most competitors to step up their game.

You may know I am very partial to Bindi Irwin.

Alexa and Derek received the first perfect score of this season.

They did a great job.

Honor where honor is due.

You be the judge.

It was the nuttiest week of the Dancing with the Stars season as all of the stars traded partners for one night of total insanity. Or at least that’s how it usually is.

Last night, October 12, 2015,  was actually great, and a lot less of a mess up than the switch-up often is. There were some truly incredible dances tonight, including the season’s first perfect score from a slightly unexpected pair!

While both Bindi Irwin and Carlos PenaVega totally rocked their routines with respective temporary partners Val Chmerkovskiy and Lindsay Arnold, it was Alexa PenaVega and Derek Hough who blew the roof off the place with their epic tango and scored a standing ovation from Carrie Ann Inaba (even if she thought it was a paso doble) and perfect tens from all four judges, including guest judge Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
