Thank you, People magazine for listening to The Smoking Nun! After our persistent prodding to place William Levy on the cover, next week’s issue has delivered! It hits newsstands Friday, April 13. Of course, People En Espanol has featured William countless times, including naming him (like The Smoking Nun) the Sexiest Man Alive.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday night’s DWTS elimination show, The View co-host Sherri Shepherd got the boot after pretty much never showing a lick of talent on the dancefloor. Her exit was an extravagant display of weeping and boo-hooing, as if she ever thought she had a shot on the show.
Back to People: Here’s the text alongside the mag’s website teaser:
Six-pack abs? Yawn. Dancing with the Stars’ breakout heartthrob, William Levy, boasts what his partner Cheryl Burke calls “12-pack abs.” And his fans have definitely noticed. “I have never heard it that loud in there,” Burke says of the deafening roar that fills the ballroom when Levy takes the floor. “He’s like a rock star!” But while he’s turning millions of heads each week on the ABC hit, Levy, 31, is also marveling at how far he’s come. “To come to this country and receive this kind of love from people you don’t even know, it’s amazing,” he tells People in this week’s cover story.
The Telenova star and father of two—son Christopher, 6, and daughter Kailey, 2—with on-and-off girlfriend Elizabeth Gutiérrez, also opens up about his early lean years in Cuba before emigrating to the U.S. at 15. “I try to give my kids everything I never had,” he says.
