DISCO, TANGO, FOXTROT
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.”
