Critical Glitter Deficiency  
I'm going through withdrawal. I'm wasting away here as a pale shell of myself without the constant infusion of spray-tanned bodies and awkwardly covered pop tunes. (Bizarre sidenote: People in my office today were talking about how they apparently go spray-tanning all the time. The fuck? People do that outside of reality shows? I thought that was strictly limited to Jersey Shore, Dancing With the Stars and child-abuse sideshow Toddlers and Tiaras.)

So I scoured the internet and found a few videos I hadn't seen from a Pittsburgh local news site. Local news is such a weird thing, primarily because the local newscasters all seem like they're from the group of slightly odd, close-talking people at your local church who decide they're best friends with you. I don't even know.

Pre-season interview! Hines is already competitive with her former partners. Kym's hearts-n-flowers train pulls out of the station. The bit of Hines' house we see is a-ma-zing. Kym's out for redemption after The Season of Hoff that Wasn't. I love this. Watch eeeet.

After the first dance which the news anchors hilariously call a Champion Cha-Cha. Adorable interview. Kym is hyper and is all excited that he calls her his quarterback and is teaching her about football, and thinks him drawing up football-play versions of the dances is the cutest thing ever. It kind of is. I forget which one of you enablers (mspooh?) decided he keeps these pieces of paper forever as a playbook to Kym's romantic fantasies that she has conveniently been choreographing for him week after week. ;) And apparently all the other contestants are already talking about their "chemistry."

Raw interview video when they were in Pittsburgh. Kym doesn't quite know what to make of Hines' WR greatest hits, and she spends the interview playing with the Steelers bracelet he gave her. Hines isn't a fan of how much skin Kym wants him to show. There's also long raw video of their press conference at one of the fancy-dress dos they went to. Kym will make such a gracious queen for Pittsburgh, haha:

There was also a rehearsal clip from the week of the awkward tango where they actually sounded kind of convincing about being Just Friends and Hines compares her to a football teammate, but then they proceed to be stupidly adorable as per usual. We'll just assume the harsh conditions of the sex pact were wearing on them and/or they were genuinely committed to the just-friends train until the neck drama a few weeks later. Not sure which possibility is cuter, actually. Also, seriously, who is this reporter woman. What is her deal.

After the finale: Kym finally says Hines was her best partner and then goes on to say he's the best of everybody ever. Hines rewards her by saying he's "sleeping with the trophy tonight." Ha! Whatever, no one sleeps at all on the ABC Party Plane. Kym also tells her subjects in Pittsburgh that she'll be visiting soon. Sex pact! God Save the Queen! And another interview that same night where they talk about the injury and not letting each other down and the fuzzy math of Kym's second trophy actually being her third and you can tell Hines is still kinda freaked out by her injury two weeks later and she just adores him and I could run-on sentence about this forever.

I wish my muse were not being cranky about ficwriting today. I am the only person writing DWTS RPF after all, and the current supply can't keep up with my demand.

ETA: Then I had to go watch their Viennese Waltz just because. (As Kyle said last year, it's like the waltz, but... Viennese. I am really easily amused.) It's not related to anything above except for how sweet they are. <3

And a post-interview I don't think I've posted before. Kym wants to see Hines sing in the Steelers locker room showers. I might have to even give her a pass on the apparent kinkiness of that, because that sounds hilarious.

Or if you're me, its like the waltz, but evil. *mutters*
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 3rd, 2011 05:42 am (UTC)
But it looks so much funner than the regular waltz! It's more fun to watch on glittervision TV, anyway.

Well, if you're doing actual choreography, maybe it doesn't suck quite so much, but I always hated it. My level allowed exactly two steps, and the whole thing was basically an exercise in keeping your lunch contained in your stomach during the time you were dancing, because those two steps consist of spinning around and around and around and around very quickly...

/ballroom rage
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 3rd, 2011 03:24 pm (UTC)
There does appear to be a lot of spinning! This is true. I don't know, I always like it because it's so pretty and graceful and flowy and... IDK, more memorable. :)
Alice: bones: booth grinviolettavalery on June 3rd, 2011 02:10 pm (UTC)
Look at Kim Kym (gah I suck) looking all pretty in her ballet dancer bun!

Dude, you rock for finding all these.

It's always so fun to see the pros dressed up, because we get so used to seeing them in, like, feather bikinis with giant hair. And that bun really is too adorable - I'm not sure how the sex pact survived that night. ;)

Playbook of SEX LOVE!

Will watch and comment more when I get to a proper computer as the phone is not capable of handling my Hines/Kym squeeage.
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 4th, 2011 10:20 pm (UTC)
Yes! Yes! :) I understand completely. Proper equipment required for squeee. :)

I stumbled upon this journal and was pleasantly surprised that I'm not the only one enthralled with Hines and Kym. I don't know if this link has been posted, but it is a recent phone interview with Kym. It's with a radio station in Pittsburgh about a bridal show she's doing there in July. She also says Hines "would be the best catch" That part is towards the end of the interview, 6:30

Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 5th, 2011 08:16 pm (UTC)
HEEE! *claps hands with delight*

OMG! I love it that you're the second person in two days to show up on my LJ and give me hilariously adorable Hines/Kym links. :) I'M NOT ALOOOONE!! And ha. The best catch indeed. They so totally had a sex pact during the season and now they're hooking up, for true. Eeeeee.

I was pleased to find out that I was not alone as well. Browsing youtube, there are quite interesting paparazzi videos of DWTS after parties and the like. It's comings and goings. Kym and Hines ALWAYS (or close enough) leave together. One video has him insisting on walking to her car or getting her a cab. He gets her a cab and talks to the driver and pays for it. He also tells the driver to drive safely. He opens doors for her too. There is a longer version of that TMZ video with her mom. Her mom is smiling the entire time. If you click "more" for the description, most videos tell you who is in it and an idea of where to skip ahead to.
The practice sequence before the freestyle when he's talking about envisioning scoring a touchdown and she says "and you do", that was a little breathy, not a normal way to annunciate. That lingering high five and the look she gave him...that sealed it. Apologies for the length, I haven't been able to be open about my teetering on obsessive interest in them.

Apologies for the length, I haven't been able to be open about my teetering on obsessive interest in them.

I am laughing out loud right now. I just spent the past eight weeks posting reams of squeee about DWTS and Hines/Kym - do not EVEN feel bad about any kind of comment-spamming on this topic. It's making me shriek with joy, for serious. FEEL FREE to continue to spam me with ALL OF YOUR THOUGHTS on this very important matter.

Kym and Hines ALWAYS (or close enough) leave together.

OOOOH!!! I think I'm going to deputize you the minister of paparazzi videos on this subject. They kind of freak me out! I can't explain it, because I obviously have no issues with writing fanfic about other people's personal lives, but somehow those videos make me want to hide. HEE. I might be desperate enough to do that now that the season is over, though. ;)

He opens doors for her too.

Of course! :) He's a Nice Southern Boy. And I love that her mom was smiling, because you know she's totally like KYM I LIKE HIM, and Kym's like MOM WE'RE JUST FRIENDS and mom is like I JUST REALLY LIKE HIM, HE SEEMS LIKE A NICE MAN FOR YOU.

That lingering high five and the look she gave him...that sealed it.

YES. That scene was where I was like "holy crap, they really DO have a pact to have sex after the finals!" Or, you know, a We'll See What Happens pact, which is pretty much a sex pact, amirite?

Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 6th, 2011 05:57 am (UTC)

I'm going to watch all of these in a moment once I calm down from the flailing, but seriously, seriously, just your notes have me full of ridiculous gleee. Eeee. (I did post another Hines/Kym spam post today, FYI, including the link you sent me earlier. If, you know, you need some more gleee in your life, which WE ALL DO.)
Little Red: dwts - hines/kymmylittleredgirl on June 6th, 2011 06:59 am (UTC)

1) She lipstick-kissed him and apparently made him walk around with a lipstick kiss on his forehead or something, HA. And he's all "I need to get my partner home," because CHIVALRY IS NOT DEAD. And she's rocking her adorable quickstep look that I loved so much. :) Aww, I feel bad for him. Kym is totally used to this and apparently knows these people by name, and he's like this is super bizarre, what is this weird planet named Los Angeles that I have found myself on, I don't think I really like it.

2) I love that I can tell what night it is because all the women are still rocking their show hair. :) She's so sweet!

3) AHAHA. I saw a photo from this night somewhere and wrote it into a fic, and I'm all excited that they actually got into the same cab! I was just making things up. Man, they are so dating and don't even know they're dating and that makes it even cuter.

4) WHAT THE CUTE. Her arm is wrapped in his and she has her head on his shoulder and I have never seen this before and now my brain is kind of SHORTED OUT by the squeee. They're too cute! How are they this cute?

5) Awww! They're so cute! She's all tipsy and "go back inside!" and chatting up the photographers and he is like "I AM PUTTING YOU IN A CAB NOW." He frets for her! Dude, she had no chance, of course she was going to fall for him after this. ;) How could she not.
christymarkrydenfan on June 6th, 2011 07:20 am (UTC)
They are always super cute together. It is not feasible that there is just friendship between them. I've noticed that in interviews when they are confronted about it, they never blatantly deny it i.e. no, we're just good friends. It's always a we have a great friendship and somewhat deflect. An important question is will she be at the cmt awards bc apparently he is supposed to present. I think it is this upcoming wednesday.
Little Red: sga - john sin - goldie_galmylittleredgirl on June 7th, 2011 02:00 am (UTC)
I mean, it's feasible, but it would be a ridiculous waste of their mutual hotness. :) They do seem to love each other like crazy, so from the outside it looks like omg, how could they NOT hook up and go swan around the islands and then find every possible opportunity to be cute together from here on out?

Though my rational brain wonders whether Kym never denied it because she wasn't ruling anything out, or because "will they or won't they" keeps the audience interested and so much of this competition is about PR? I don't actually think they could have played all of this up for the cameras because they obviously genuinely adore each other (and I don't really think Hines would have been okay faking an affair with her just for the cameras). I don't know. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't kiss and tell if they actually did hook up during the show, but she sounds pretty convincing that they had a sex pact didn't mess around during the competition. (Now, on the other hand... they are both going to be on the East Coast this summer...)

Hee! It would be so cute if she were at the CMT! :) She's probably working, though, so if she's not there, we don't have to give up on our Secret Sex Pact theory. It seems like all the DWTS pros are jet-setting around the country doing the most random events in the off-season.
christymarkrydenfan on June 7th, 2011 07:08 am (UTC)
Apparently, she is going to Tampa to do some HSN thing. Fortunately I like her enough to overlook pimping hair extentions of all things. I hope bump-its are not included because I'm not sure if that is a deal breaker or not for me. Tampa and I'm assuming it's in Nashville are probably 2 hours apart at most...
I remember when Chad Ochocinco was on the show and he and Cheryl aka Sugarplum were very flirty and instigated "are they or aren't they" speculation, but denied it. I think it was this year that she confirmed that they had a fling.
They need to be on Ellen or Chelsea Lately because they would be hounded about that and the denial would be HILARIOUS.

You too!? I'm having some trouble overlooking this. I decided to just hope she's getting well paid, because not only is "shilling anything on the home shopping network" my own personal WORST NIGHTMARE next to zombies and yellow-jackets, I assume this gig was probably why she had to wear those stupid fake bangs all season.

Oh! Oh! I just saw that interview with Cheryl and her "we had a fling... FOR THE CAMERAS" and it's a fun clip. Wendy Williams is a much better interviewer than she is a dancer. "I don't need his diamonds!" You go, Sugarplum.

I wish I hadn't clicked on the featured links, though, because in the other clip from this interview she's pimping "appetite control spray" (can't we get these nice girls a deal where they're endorsing luxury cars or something!?).

Hines and Kym totally have to go on Ellen. Awww!! I don't really like Chelsea, because she can get so mean, where Ellen's always upbeat. :) The denial would be so hilarious!!
christymarkrydenfan on June 6th, 2011 06:05 am (UTC)
Thank you, I hope you enjoy. I'm trying to find the longer mom clip. I think Kym's mom is all smiles bc of all the cameras. Your posts with have provided me with some glee as well. Hines tweeted the other day providing the link to her official Facebook page and said "I wanted to share with you so we can show her some Black and Gold". I am glad that I can share this information to people that are interested in this as well.
