After months of preparation, the Celebrity Dance Challenge finally took place last night with amazing success.
Sub-titled “Dancing For Self-Esteem” the event benefitted the Eating Disorder Information Network, or EDIN.

My dance partner, Clifton Pierce, and I performed to the song “Freakum Dress” by Beyonce.

Truly a night I will NEVER forget.

My sincere thanks to EDIN for including me in their good work.

And a huge round of applause to my Glam Squad!

Tonight is THE NIGHT!

After months of preparation, tonight I get to put my dancing shoes to the test!

My dance partner, Clifton Pierce, and I got up early yesterday to do a little preview.

My dress is solid gold — courtesy of designer Vanessa Vinci.

I posted a photo above, but you can check out the full performance here.

Then last night we did a run through with all the other teams — so we got to see their routines.

All I can say is — I am impressed!!!

There’s still time to check out all our moves, and vote for your favorite team.

It’s all to support the Eating Disorder Information Network, or EDIN.

And we’d love to have you come to the show, tonight!
