Dancing Star Tony Dovolani Coming to Chattanooga for Fundraiser
The Partnership for Families, Children and Adults announced that Tony Dovolani, professional dancer on ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars” will be the special guest star at the 6th annual Dancing with the Chattanooga Stars event.
Chattanooga’s own local celebrity dance-off competition will take place on June 22nd at the Tivoli Theatre. The event features eight local celebrities in a dance-off competition to win their own mirror ball trophy and raise money for their chosen Partnership program.
Tony Dovolani, with his professional partner, Ashley Del Grosso Costa, will perform several dance routines at the event. They will also appear at the VIP Party to meet and take photos with VIP ticket holders.
“We are excited to have Tony Dovolani as our Special Guest Star", says Sandra Hollett, Partnership CEO. “He performed at our event 4 years ago and was a Chattanooga favorite. Not only is he a great dancer and very popular but he’s a really wonderful person. I can’t wait to see his dance routines this year. He will definitely add to the already tremendous excitement of the evening.”
Tony Dovolani has been a favorite on the popular ABC Show since the second season. He won the Mirror Ball Trophy, along with celebrity partner Melissa Rycroft, in the Season 15 All-Stars Competition. Season 16 paired Tony with famed country star, Wynona Judd. Tony’s professional body of work includes guest-hosting segments on “EXTRA”, the Golf Channel’s “The Morning Drive” and on ABC syndicated show “On The Red Carpet.” He was also featured as a special guest on the Dancing with the Stars: Las Vegas show. He is a frequent guest on “Good Morning America” giving viewers his special insight into the world of “Dancing with the Stars.”
“I am so happy to return to Chattanooga again. The audiences here are great and the people are friendly” states Tony. “I have a great performance planned with my partner, Ashley and I’m glad to be able to help support the great Partnership Programs.”
Dancing with the Chattanooga Stars is widely recognized as the leading event of its type in Chattanooga, and looks forward to another year of a sold-out show! Each Chattanooga celebrity is paired with a professional dancer from the local Fred Astaire Dance Studio where they rehearse their routine in 15 dance lessons over three months. The competitor who raises the most money both before the event and on event night will win the Grand Dancing Champion Award. All proceeds will benefit Partnership programs.

HILARY SWANK: DEATH BECOMES HER?
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) -- Hilary Swank says even her own mom wonders why it seems she never lives long enough in the movies to see the credits roll. The actress has starred in a number of films in which her character -- or someone close to her -- dies. Swank says it isn't like she asks her people to go out and find scripts in which she ends up dead. But she says she does ask her people to point her to roles in which there are stories about women who can show the world "real, meaty, courageous, brave snippets of life." Her latest movie is "You're Not You" -- in which she plays a former pianist suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease. Not trying to spoil anything -- but Swank says it she doesn't think it gives anything away to tell you that her character doesn't survive this one, either.
Hilary Swank says it's not like she goes looking for roles with people who end up dead.

HALLE BERRY'S BRAS
NEW YORK (AP) -- Want to get your hands on some of Halle Berry's lingerie? You now have a chance -- now that she's reviving a line of underwear that has its origins in France. Berry is launching a collection of 10 bras and panties that will be sold at Target. They are born from the Scandale line -- which was started in 1932. Berry is an owner of the line -- and helps in the design of the lingerie. She notes women usually buy lingerie for themselves -- and if they find something they feel good in, it makes them "feel sexy and feminine and empowered." She says as a result, "their partners also reap the benefits." She spoke about the line while showing off a bra in her product line -- one that retails for under $20.
CLAIRE COFFEE: SETTLING IN
NEW YORK (AP) -- Claire Coffee has been married almost a year. But she says it's only now that she's starting to settle into the relationship. That's because her husband, Chris Thile, is in the band The Punch Brothers and is "on the road most of the time." The star of NBC's "Grimm" says the couple has now relocated to Portland, Oregon -- where the show is shot. And Coffee says, that means they'll have more time to spend together, even though her hubby is still an active part of the group. While she may not see much of her husband, Coffee says she gets to see lots of fans of Grimm in Portland. She says fans keep showing up -- even though producers don't go telling people when and where they will shoot. The first episode of season four of Grimm airs tonight on NBC.
Claire Coffee says Portland, Oregon isn't the easiest place to have a long-distance relationship.
