The “Fan Favorite” competition this year ought to be more heated than ever before … last year’s choice for that title, Mindy Reed, is back but so are the Desert Dancing Stars from the first, second, and fourth years: Ron Duran, Bianca Rae, and Natalie Brunell. Sadly, third year winner Manny Perez was unable to return but Nino Eilets, Nina Beck, and Tony Marchese are also rehearsing up a storm with their professional dance partners – and we’re pretty sure each one of them wants that mirrored ball trophy.

Drag superstar of “Wigstock” fame, Jackie Beat, will be there with Dennis Hensley, of “The Big Gay Sketch Show” to make sure the audience is on their toes on Friday, November 13 when these All-Stars of Dancing with the Desert Stars take the dance floor at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Cocktails at 6:00 PM with the show beginning at 7:30.
