A few words from ME. I can’t thank you enough for all of your support over the past few years... a year ago my skates had been hung up permanently collecting dust in the closet, I had moved back to LA to continue my other passion in television but as fate would have it I’m back for @dancingonice I’ve never been more excited about life, my career and getting to share my life and work with all of you. I owe everything to my friends and family behind the scenes and feel very blessed to have all of your support as you’ve been there with me for the past decade now. Wishing you all an extremely blessed 2018 and again.... thank you. Bye bye 2017. #happynewyear
