Jeez Louise, what a bananas crazy pants week it has been. Last Saturday, I flew down to Melbourne with my Dancing With The Stars partner Aric and the rest of the cast in order to attend the big annual Alannah and Madeline Foundation Starry Starry Night gala ball! Along with being selected to host a table, Aric and I were honoured to be asked to perform a dance on the night. We chose a cha cha to Jennifer Lopez's Let's Get Loud, which we had prepared for the Party Week episode. While I spent half of the night being so nervous about the dance that I couldn't eat, and the other half being so relieved it was over that I could faint, it was a spectacular night and a lot of money was raised for the fantastic charity. In spite of my nauseating nerves, our dance went very well (I will be receiving video footage from the evening soon, so continue to check my Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr pages to see it!) and it was a lovely way to reunite the gang.
Happy to be back with my girl Torah and her DWTS partner Robbie!

Our finale, in which I get to shove Aric to the ground, satisfying many a fantasy dreamed up during gruelling training sessions. ;-)

Couldn't resist slipping into the dress Kym wore for her dance... Maximum showgirl vibes!
