So You Think You Can Dance's Janette Manrara: Single and Loving It!By Delaina Dixon | July 15, 2009 | Entertainment
So You Think You Can Dance‘s Janette Manrara‘s ex-boyfriend is so kicking himself right now.
“I was involved in a four-year relationship, we were living together, and a week before I found out that I was leaving for Las Vegas to find out if I made Top 20, he broke up with me,” Janette tells the TV Divagal.
The sassy Salsa dancer also suffered a car accident and had to quit her job. But she’s having that last laugh.
“It was tough to get through the week with all that going on in my head,” Janette says. “But it went well. I made top 20, and I’m still here in top 10. So I’m happy.”
You know her ex has tried to slink back into her life.
“He definitely feels bad over what happened,” Janette shares. “He has tried to reach out to me a couple times, but no.”
You tell him, girl. Karma is a you-know-what!
On tonight’s show, Janette loses her powerhouse of a partner, Contemporary dancer Brandon Bryant.
“He is unbelievable as a dancer, I think one of the strongest on the show,” she says.
But Janette is looking forward to pairing up with someone new, namely choreographers Sonya Tayeh and Mia Michaels.
“I haven’t gotten any routines where I get to dance barefoot,” says Janette.
“All the numbers I’ve done on the show so far with Hip-Hop and Jazz have been on heels, so I’m looking forward to some Contemporary choreography where I don’t have to wear any shoes.”
As for maintaining that rockin’ bod (’cause you know you want to know how she does it!), Janette says, “I don’t have a strict diet. I try to stay away from huge meals after six.”
“I drink a lot of water and juices, because you have to constantly be hydrating yourself,” she shares.
“Just being on the show itself is a major workout for your body. It’s hard to get big.”
I’m signing up for some Hip-Hop classes, stat.
So You Think You Can Dance, the Top Ten perform, airs tonight, Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
