Planet Mirrorball, Your New King and Queen...  
ETA: I don't think I mentioned just how much I LOVE ALL OF YOU who showed up for my liveblog crack last night. You made drinking alone in my apartment feel really cool and I love you for it. <3

EEEEEE. Man, I just loved this whole season. Petra. PETRA. Is she not the sweetest person ever? My God. She is the high priestess of Planet Mirrorball, I think. Josh Groban surprised her mid-dance in the finale and it was so utterly sweet. And Chris Jericho needs to be a continuing feature on this show. Oh, and Hines and Kym are going to have beautiful babies. The squeee is going to be massive and never-ending until it ends in a day or two when the internet stops overflowing with interviews and videos and OTP OTP OTP and the DWTS spam will settle down into a more sedate kind of "is Little Red still writing fanfic about that?" Hines & Kym: OTP in the eyes of America for the day, IN MY HEART OF HEARTS FOREVER.

Okay, there is so much craziness that we'll just start with: FIRST THEY WON A MIRRORBALL TROPHY.

They were really happy about it:

Because they are the King and Queen of Dorkistan as well as Pittsburgh and Planet Mirrorball, they do the send-up of Derek and J-Grey's ridiculous mirrorball pose from last season that they hilariously promised they would do:

But BEFORE all of that! They did the Samba that will become a theme of this post. I don't even know WHERE TO START on this footage. When his favorite dance was the Foxtrot where he proposed to her? (Kym vetoes this idea because apparently she cares about showcasing his strengths and winning a mirrorball more than she cares about the very real possibility that he would have given her actual diamonds in a re-do of that routine.) When he takes his pants off and dances with her in underwear reminiscent of bike shorts? When he says he'll miss the dancing and then hugs her in this adorable little-kid way and says he will miss her? When he runs over to kiss his mom and she shoos him back over to be judged? (That's not shippy, but it is hilarious.) When she grabs his hand to wrap it around her while they're at the judges' table? When Bruno says "We all fall in love!" and Hines kisses Kym's temple? I could probably stop this post right here and we'd be set on shipsqueee for a week.

I noticed they modified the routine so she doesn't do some of the crazier bits that would have hurt her neck and just does kicks instead. Safety first, kids!

During the Samba, Louis and the dancer I'm now forever calling Sugarplum out Hines/Kym for the world on The Twitter:

@LouisVanAmstel: Watching @mvp86hinesward n @kym_johnson doing their samba. Both @CherylBurke n I think they should get married. They're such a lovely couple

HAHAHA. All of DWTS is on the Hines/Kym OTP shiptrain. Cheryl, Louis, I'm counting on you to choreograph a bit where he surprises Kym in a pro number in some future season. MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Also, The Dancers Confess from Monday! Hines wants another kiss. They laugh about the not-quite-kiss at the end of the Freestyle.. Hines knows a routine went well when he sees Kym's smile. AWWW.

So yes, that happened, and then they won a mirrorball! Huzzah! After the ecstasy, the press lines!

I love this interviewer from ontheredcarpet, mostly because the pros seem to really love him. He always puts them at ease. Hines talks about how unlike a team victory for a Superbowl this was just him & Kym, and she continues the season-long Hines-is-amazing lovefest and there's snuggling and awwww. I want someone to take that trophy from her, though. It looks heavy and I worry. (I'm also feeling the strong urge to bake her some muffins or something. Hines' mom: feed that girl!)

Oooh! Prayer answered! Kym does this one without the trophy in hand. The island vacation seems to be on hold so that Hines can have thumb surgery next week (this is a thing for football players I guess?), but they have plans to visit each other and the interviewer speaks for all of us when he's like whatever, surgery, go recuperate together!

Then they do Jimmy Kimmel and continue to pretend they're not dating! Jimmy asks Kym how she can be feeling Hines up while she calls him A Really Good Friend, and she totally does not pull her hand away. RIGHT. Also, Hines continues his (adorable) season-long quest* to make Kym call him her best partner on national TV, and nearly succeeds when he points out that the It's All About Donny Osmond Road Show predicted Chelsea would win. HA.
*Those vids are both insanely cute if you haven't seen them, vid 1 is the first time they find out everyone thinks they're hooking up, and vid 2 is a results show clip from week 7 where the couples interrogate each other over what Tom calls a poker/psychic table.

OKAY. I am going to edit and update this with more but I am basically making this a LIVELINKBLOG so that mspooh can appreciate these before the East Coast goes to bed. ;)

After all of this! They get on a plane to New York for the GMAs. Kym tweets this photo of them in what appears to be the official ABC party plane:

She also continues the season-long Hines fangirling about how he's such a great man and the best partner and awww. Kym rarely tweets, and when she does, it's always hearts-n-flowers. I am really quite disappointed in the contestants who do overtweet - Kirstie and Chelsea - for not tweeting revenge photos from the plane of Hines & Kym liquored up and all over each other. I thought FOR SURE they'd make this happen for me.

So! They get off the ABC Party Plane to go to Good Morning America:

I was totally staring at Kym's chest in this photo for a really long time, which is ironic because she's never this covered. But I think I'm hallucinating Mickey Mouse on her shirt?

Kym almost has the Royal Wave down. Handholding!

Handholding through fucktons of glitter! I love the bit in the video (below) where Chelsea's like, after doing DWTS, you don't even notice glitter anymore, it's just expected.


This became my iphone wallpaper today. If you're still reading this far into this post you can't judge me.

Okay I'm just adding this one to show that girlfriend's crazy uniskort has pockets! Pink and practical.

Good Morning America! Kym is totally the most hyper, but they're all punchy (except Mark, who's sleep deprived and really trying not to be cranky). Hines is going to give Kym a tribute from his day job by doing cha-cha touchdown dances. They show the lingo-exchange from Week 2 with current reaction shots of glee. Hines looked forward to practice every morning to "learn dance and learn each other." It's just. All of this is so sweet and all of the couples love each other so much by Hines & Kym love each other in a way where their babies will totally watch this season one day and be like "DAD HOW DID YOU LET MOM DRESS LIKE THAT!?" He's totally giving Kym that DWTS champ jersey to sleep in, by the way.

And Maks reacting to sex-on-a-stick and Mark: "I have never seen you blush!" *dies* And Mark and Chelsea broke onto the Price is Right set. This video is PERFECTION.

The segment continues outside! This is less Hines/Kym centric and viewer questions always make me feel a little awkward, but I love that Chelsea stole her American Flag fringe pants. Hines hopes the lockout gets resolved (can he be Kym's houseboyfriend during the fall DWTS season if it doesn't?). Kyle Massey looks hilarious in a silver suit. Maks always wanted to be a swimmer and this makes SO MUCH SENSE. I think I just developed a crush on him.

Aaaand Hines and Kym do an adorable casual-dress version of their samba:

Then they get a cab or something to Regis & Kelly, on their quest to see how many times you can samba on no sleep and how many skorts Kym actually owns. Kelly is completely overcome by their cuteness, which I imagine is somehow even more blinding in person, and squeals, "You two adore each other!" and they're like, yeah, we do. Kym nods very knowingly like she understands things about the NFL lockout, which is very cute (and she probably does understand things if he's been talking about it, and I like the idea of her commiserating with him on this topic).


Okay, for those of you writing fanfic at home, What's Next For Our Heroes:

Hines' immediate plans involve surgery, his son, and driving the trophy around a victory lap of Atlanta. This video is kind of a nonstory except that it's short enough that Joanna Krupa doesn't get on my nerves:

Kym details her plans in her last blog of the season for OK! magazine, bringer of ridiculous shippy moments all season:

We are DEFINITELY going to stay in touch after this. Hines is going to be a life-long friend. We’ve just really had so much fun together. I’m going to miss him SO much when all of this is done, but you know what, it’s fine. We’ll definitely be keeping in touch! I’ll have to make a trip to Atlanta and to Pittsburgh to see him play football. I can’t wait to go and watch him in action, he’s told me all about it but I’ve never seen him play football, so I really want to go and see him play.

Emphasis hers, not mine. I think she's going to clear up her Just Friends misconception pretty quickly, no?

I don’t have much downtime because after this I’m pretty much busy: I’m going to Vegas to do a show; to Mohegan Sun to do a show; then I’m going to be in Tampa on HSN for the Dancing With the Stars hair collection, selling the collection I’ve been wearing throughout the season. I’m excited about that. So I’m pretty busy but hopefully in the next couple of months I can get a good five days where I can take some time off.

I might watch football for this ship, but I am not watching the Home Shopping Network. THE LINE MUST BE DRAWN HERE. Oh God, what if I do watch the Home Shopping Network. *facepalm*

I sort of can't believe this post just took my entire evening and yet I will probably revisit it and cherish it always SO THERE'S THAT. Aaaaand fanfic forever. Yay! By the way, now that they've won, I've decided that my island vacation fanfic is totally canon and I even got over the cheesiness of it because they're just like that.

Every now and again I remember these are real people and I kind of freak out about what a creeper I am. OMG. Their luv makes me blog crazy shit on livejournal, y'all. I... am totally going to write more fanfic anyway.

Unfortunately, I am already asleep. Ha. But I did scroll through really fast to see all the shiptastic squeeworthy pics and stuff. Will definitely be squeeing tomorrow, after I catch up on sleep. Hee.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 26th, 2011 04:25 am (UTC)
It is going to be EPICCC.

Love you! Sleep well! :)

Shit. Does this mean I'm going to have to start watching Steelers games, just to see if the camera ever pans to an adoring Kym in the audience?
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 26th, 2011 03:46 pm (UTC)
HEEEEE. I am not nearly this thorough in my day job anymore. I need to fix that! Of course, my day job isn't this overwhelmingly adorable. The endless sambas! The spectacular cuteness! Everyone in the world being like "DAAAATE!"

I love that they went out partying with Kirstie and Maks last night, too. I imagine Kirstie must be ridiculously fun to party with. And I can just picture Maks and Kym taking a moment to shame everyone on the club dance floor and Kirstie taking Hines aside and being like "You need to take her to your hotel room. Now."
Pooh: hot assmspooh on May 27th, 2011 01:29 am (UTC)
I want to know what happened to all the millions of tweeters, some of them must have been at the club that night, dammit. Why no candid pics!

I really liked the casual samba on GMA. You can really see Hines' butt go. Dayum. On a side note: I didn't realize George S. was so freaking short!

You've probably seen this, but I saw it on youtube while I was catching up on your links and the title cracked me up (cuz I'm really a 5 year old boy at heart). So I had to watch it. Stinky butt. Hahahahaha. That's bonding all right, and yes, every couple goes through this I'm sure. lmao
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 27th, 2011 02:30 am (UTC)
HAHAHAHAHAHA. "Are we on TV talking about this!?" WHAT EVEN was this interview. They just keep talking. *dies* At this point they can skip the dating and just get married I think.

Check my comment to pb below for a photo that Maks posted from last night! No makeouts, but we can just infer how drunk they are, so I'm calling it a win. (Chelsea and Mark didn't go along, which makes me wonder if the young couple just went to bed while everyone else partied, LOL.) Also today there were photos of them shopping together in NY according to the captions. This ship is turning me into an appreciator of paparazzi and I don't know how I feel about that but MAYBE THEY WERE BUYING DIAMONDS. MAYBE.

(HA. Kym responded to Louis' tweet to say he and Cheryl Sugarplum are crazy. OH TWITTER. Twitter is like rpf fandom crack.)

Edit: Okay, okay, way better photos are here. Hines did a radio interview for somewhere that's mean and has a paywall so I can't listen to it, but the topics covered included taking Kym on a shopping spree in New York. So he totally just a) went shopping with her, b) bought her stuff from Louis Vuitton, c) carried the bag out for her. No wonder she's grinning like that. *squeee*

Edit again: I'm going to bed now so this will actually stop, but a;lskdgja;lkdgads one more time for this backstage post-finale interview:

"Kym took this guy who didn't dance— who didn't even go to his prom—and she's my prom date right here now."

And then I knew no more. GOODNIGHT!

Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 27th, 2011 05:38 am (UTC)
Dude. The City of Pittsburgh is legitimately considering throwing a parade. A PARADE. Even my mind is boggling right now.

Kym is like the Kate Middleton of Pittsburgh now. Her subjects are going to demand that she recuse herself from shilling fake bangs on HSN and get to work producing an heir.

I can just imagine Hines being all "Are you free Saturday? Because some people are going to call your people about flying you into Pittsburgh." And she's all, my people?, like is this some kind of public relations booty call?, and he's like "Remember that time you were amazed that people in Pittsburgh wore jerseys in the off-season and gave us free food? They're throwing us A PARADE."
peanutbuttererpeanutbutterer on May 26th, 2011 06:10 am (UTC)
I don't know how I feel about her selling hairpieces or wearing skorts, but otherwise, CUTENESS.

I assume you'll let me know when their love is canon, y/y?
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 26th, 2011 06:23 am (UTC)
Heee!! Yes, I'll probably continue to stalk DWTS gossip sites and will keep you informed.

In the meantime, have a photo of OTP, Maks and Kirstie partying in NYC right now. FACEBOOK AND TWITTER ARE SO FREAKING WEIRD in that they give me up-to-date insight into celebrities' current levels of drunkenness. Drunken exhausted hookup in the works y/y?

I can't even cope. Your enabling is good. We must continue to blind-enable each other in our respective fandom obsessions. <3
Michelle K.jemster on May 26th, 2011 06:17 pm (UTC)
And Maks reacting to sex-on-a-stick and Mark: "I have never seen you blush!" *dies*

I think it was George S. that said the blush line. Anyway, I can NOT stop laughing when I see it. Kirstie's reaction to that segment was GOLD. I love her comment after that particular scene, "What the hell does that mean?" Maks had a taste of Sexfondue!

As much as I love Maks & Kirstie I really do think the best dancer won which is kinda rare with these types of competitions (re: IDOL). I was very happy with the placements.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 26th, 2011 07:33 pm (UTC)
I love the last bit. "I have common sense." And Kirstie just dies. Kym and Mark are loving it.

I feel bad for how hard Kirstie seems to be taking the loss, but it makes sense when you work so hard for something. Chelsea, bless her little heart, seems to be really happy with third. She seems to have such a good head on her shoulders for career & business for being only 22, and has just been so adorably happy about being on the show the whole season. I think Chelsea is/might be a better dancer than Hines, and Mark certainly didn't give her any breaks with the choreo, but Hines is a much better performer, so overall he's more fun to watch and deserved the win. :)

I'm in withdrawl now! HOW WILL I COPE???
Michelle K.jemster on May 26th, 2011 10:10 pm (UTC)
Did you just say..*gasp!*..that you think Chelsea is/might be a better dancer than Hines?!?!?! *falls over* I'm going to go and look for the smelling salts I put away as I might need them. ;-)
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 26th, 2011 11:15 pm (UTC)
Hee! She's technically really good! She doesn't sell it quite as well, though, and Mark over-selling it really didn't help her look good by comparison. But you know my heart belongs to Hines & Kym. <3
Michelle K.jemster on May 27th, 2011 12:30 am (UTC)
Just think how she'll be if she keeps up with it and gets old..like 27 or something...
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on May 27th, 2011 02:59 am (UTC)
Exactly! As a Disney kid I feel she's doing really well to have gotten to 22 without being on drugs, so third on DWTS is like a HUGE bonus!! :)

I thought she danced really beautifully when Mark let her, but more and more through the season I think he had the right idea doing crazy routines to get themselves talked about, because with so many other Big Personalities in the season, it would have been kind of And Introducing Chelsea Kane. So I don't know. Mark inspires mixed feelings in me!

(I do kind of LOL when people get all worked about but so and so is a much better dancer!! THIS SHOW IS RIGGED because we're not voting on the dance alone, we're voting on the rehearsal package, the likeability, basically how much they make us love them. So Hines & Kym? TOTALLY WIN. AMERICA LOVES YOU.)
Michelle K.jemster on May 27th, 2011 04:00 am (UTC)
Mark inspires mixed feelings in me!

Me too! He's still a baby himself so, I dunno...

But Maks? Totally HOT! I want to take him home and do..well, him. ;-)

..THIS SHOW IS RIGGED because we're not voting on the dance alone, we're voting on the rehearsal package, the likeability, basically how much they make us love them.

Completely agree! And the judge's scores also go into the tally.
Little Redmylittleredgirl on May 27th, 2011 04:07 am (UTC)
I kind of love the clip from the finale of Len going "If they don't like our scores then vote for them! That's how this works!" I think the judges start throwing tens around because they just get really tired of being booed. ;)

But in some ways they probably love the booing, because I'm sure they want the contestants to do well and be liked.

Please tell me you've seen the video where they actually say they need to practice making out before the finals!

(In case you haven't seen them, I did write fics already, but not specifically about this. ;)

Re: Holy HineKym.
Oh my sweet lord, they are too cute! I hadn't seen that before! The way she plays with his hand the whole time, it's just, OMG, so dating or if not dating so totally need to be dating and I still think they probably had an unspoken sex pact. Seriously. Their babies will be ridiculously cute.

And ahahaha at Tony and Hines discussing her sexy majorette/cheerleader costume. All season I'd been hoping she would dress as a cheerleader at some point, so I declare this CLOSE ENOUGH. :)

Tony's interviews are totally the best. I totally want Tony to win one of these seasons! Or at least stay around longer. :) Him and Anna - they both deserve the prize one of these days!

(And ha! Don't start smoking again!)

Re: Holy HineKym.
HAHA. The bed has got to be a shout-out to the Maks/Erin freestyle (which I actually really loved - is that weird of me?). Awww, his Aussie football. And his forever love of Rosa The Dancing Pillow. Kym high on painkillers is so cute. Squeee! You're totally my new favorite. :-D
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 5th, 2011 07:52 pm (UTC)
Re: Holy HineKym.
OMG, that's one of my favorites. Kym can't believe Tony is asking her this on camera. Hines and Tony fist-bumping is epic. Kym wants to be Arnold's dancing jumpoff, and Hines pretends to be heartbroken. ENDLESS HILARITY. ENDLESS. And Mark, Tony and Chelsea fangirling Jennifer Aniston is also adorable. Ha. EEEEE. Tony the Reporter is my all-time favorite.
