“DANCING WITH THE STARS” SNACK
After dress rehearsal on Dancing With The Stars, [my co-host] Tom Bergeron and I always run into craft services and have a toasted PB&J together. It gives me a little bit of energy. Then I usually have a good-size dinner after the show. I’m not somebody who will miss a meal.
My girlfriend recently taught me how to make a Spanish fried egg. You shake the pan while you spoon olive oil over the egg as it’s folding over onto itself. If you say “Give it a home, give it a home” as you shake the pan, which is what my friend says, it seems to help a lot.
