So it's official: Dallas Star Mike Modano is marrying Dancing with the Stars non-winner Willa Ford. But dunno if this bodes terribly well: "The couple has been dating on and off for four years, Willa told Access Hollywood." Or this:
"During DWTS Willa was rumored to be dating her dancing partner Maksim Chmerkoskiy. However, Willa told Access she was never dating Maksim.
Willa and Maksim had been planning to travel with the Dancing With the Stars tour, however, Maksim had to pull out for personal reasons and Willa decided not to dance with a different partner."
Or this: She broke "the news" to Access Hollywood in the first place. Extra not good enough for Ford? No Entertainment Tonight cameras available? Jim Lehrer all tied up last night? Good luck, Mike. Really. --Robert Wilonsky
