Chelsie Hightower: Adjusting to Life on Dancing with the Stars

by at . Comments

So far, so good for Chelsie Hightower on Dancing with the Stars.

She and partner TY Murray aren't atop the show's leaderboard, but the tandem has managed to survive and advance every week so far.

Asked about her first season on the ABC competition, the former So You Think You Can Dance contestant told TV Guide:

The scheduling is really overwhelming. We were just talking about this. You know, we wake up, do press, do practice, do more press. I feel like I don't stop for my friends. I don't talk to my mom even! But it's cool because you know it's going to pay off. It's not something where you wake up and go, "Oh crap! I've got to practice again." It feels good to work.
