After a stellar Week 1 performance, you’d think Dancing With the Stars 2013 hopeful Aly Raisman would take it easy. But this Olympic gymnast is in it to win it! (We think the coveted Mirror Ball trophy would look nice next to her three Olympic medals.)
As Aly and her pro partner Mark Ballas get ready to take on the Quickstep in Week 2, the gold medalist gave PARADE an insider's take on the drama before and after each performance in her weekly blog — including what her Olympic teammates (the Fierce Five!) thought of her sexy cha-cha-cha.
Check out an excerpt from her first blog below!
"I’ve received some great feedback from my Olympic teammates. Gabby [Douglas] said that she thought my dance was very sexy, and McKayla [Maroney] told me she loved the hot pink, and Jordan [Wieber] said she loved the routine, and she thought I did really great, and Kyla [Ross] was at training camp and said all the girls watched it together and they were all really excited. It means a lot to have their support. I hope that they can come watch me during the season."
