Di­a­mont’s re­cent gig kept him on his toes!

In the midst of film­ing his in­tense B&B sto­ry­line, Di­a­mont was trav­el­ing back and forth to Rome to com­pete on BALLANDO CON LE STELLE, Italy’s ver­sion of DANC­ING WITH THE STARS, be­fore be­ing voted off in mid-March. “My part­ner [Hanna Kar­tun­nen] is a leg­endary ball­room champ, and she’s just out­stand­ing,” he says. “I grew up in the disco era, but I’ve had no for­mal dance train­ing of any kind be­fore this.” De­spite the lo­gis­tics of com­pet­ing half a world away from where he lives, Di­a­mont didn’t miss a beat in terms of tap­ing his B&B scenes — he some­times taped up to four episodes in one day to make it work. “It [was] de­mand­ing in ev­ery con­ceiv­able way,” he says, “but a lot of fun as well.”
