D.L. Hughley (LaDonna Hughley’s husband) celebrated his 49th birthday on Wednesday with a visit to Access Hollywood Live!
The actor/comedian, who will shortly make his entrance as a competitor on “Dancing with the Stars,” sat down with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover as he reflected on approaching the big 5-0.
The only thing that bothers me is that, I think at a certain point you understand [you’re] closer to not being here than being here.
I spent most of my life acting like an old man when I was young, so now I act like a young man when I’m old.
So, I fly, I dance, I smoke, I dr – well, I’ve been doing that the whole time.
Joining the transmition of “Dancing” was part of D.L.’s new determine to beginning tasks he formerly found too frightening.
I’m doing a lot of things that scare me now.
I’m scared of heights, so like I said, I started flying. I’m really just doing the things I want to do. [Now], I’m certain of things I believe and I’m more certain of myself than I’ve ever been.
D.L. confessed he hadn’t actually watched “DWTS” previous to signing on for 16th season of the hit reality contest.
I’d never watched the show because I can’t dance, so… why [would I]?
Any grown man that knows how to dance has too much time on his hands. You don’t know any grown man that knows every dance that doesn’t live with his mother. You know what I mean?
It’s something I never have done… but I dig the challenge.
So how does Cheryl – a two-time mirror ball winner think her new co-worker is faring in the ballroom so far?
He’s got some rhythm [but] his hips are shy.
When asked if the couple is prepared to bring the “sexual tension” that makes dancing so enjoyable to watch, she said she and D.L. are not relatively there yet but are working hard.
Well, we’re starting from the feet up, so he’s gotta unleash that area – then we’ll talk.
Unleash the beast!
