“Dancing Queens” star Sabrina Strasser reveals on Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast that “Dancing With the Stars” pros Daniella Karagach and Pasha Pashkov once slept in her basement pre-fame.
Sabrina Strasser, the star of Bravo’s newest reality TV show “Dancing Queens,” recently revealed on Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast that she once hosted two “Dancing With the Stars” pros, Daniella Karagach and Pasha Pashkov, in her basement before they became famous. The Toronto resident, who made her reality TV debut on Tuesday, worked with the choreographer couple years ago when they created a number for her and dance partner Stanislav “Stas” Kochergin. In the upcoming episode of the podcast, Strasser reminisced about their pre-fame stay, stating, “They slept in my house, they lived with me for two days because they were choreographing a number and they needed a place to stay. They deserve to be [on ‘Dancing with the Stars’], they’re wonderful.”
In the same interview, Strasser expressed her admiration for “Dancing With the Stars” OGs Val Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff, who make cameos on the inaugural season of her show, “Dancing Queens.” While she did not film any scenes with them, she hopes to work with them in the future, along with Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, who are among her favorite mirrorball champs. “Dancing Queens,” which premiered recently on Bravo, follows the journey of six highly skilled amateur ballroom dancers, including Strasser, who invest time and money into their passion for dance while juggling their responsibilities as mothers, wives, businesswomen, and friends.
As a result of her appearance on reality TV, Strasser is now “manifesting” a future stint competing on “Dancing with the Stars” herself. With more exposure to the cutthroat Pro-Am ballroom competition circuit, Strasser hopes to square off against the show’s professional dancers and prove herself. She expressed her excitement at the possibility of “Dancing Queens” taking on “Dancing with the Stars,” with the queens dancing with different pros in the show. “I love that premise. I’m hoping, I am manifesting. And usually when I manifest, somehow it comes out,” Strasser said.
“Dancing Queens” airs on Bravo every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
