Cat Deeley dishes on 'Dance,' romance and questions from 'mum'

Cat Deeley talks 'So You Think You Can Dance' and husband's big romantic gesture that won her over
Cat Deeley would pick Dmitry as her partner if she went on 'Dancing With the Stars.' Aerodynamics important.

"So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley dropped by The Times recently, and the four-time Emmy nominee took your questions — and, apparently her mum's — during a lively conversation.

Deeley dished on the show's future (executive producer Nigel Lythgoe recently hinted that, unless the ratings hold, this could be its last season) as well as filling us in on how her husband won her over and why she picks out every outfit, every "suit of armor," she wears on "Dance."

"No one knows how you wake up in the morning better than you do," Deeley says. "And some days I can rock a black leather minidress and feel a bit like Debbie Harry, and some days I want something that's feminine or floaty and some days I want something that's easy, and it won't change my performance, but it definitely helps it."

Deeley also cleared up why she always looks a bit "gianty" on the show (a result of her 5-foot-9 frame and heels as well as tired dancers being out of breath after they perform) and how she prepared herself to throw out the first pitch at a Dodgers game not too long ago. She also demonstrated the proper technique -- complete with sound effects -- for devouring three Dodger Dogs. So, even if you don't watch "So You Think You Can Dance," there is much to learn. Enjoy.
