Chelsea dancing with the stars dating
We heard you were in a Travelodge commercial with Vanessa Hudgens when you were 8 — did you guys reconnect when you got older? So when we reconnected a couple of years ago, it was like, "Oh my god!
S.," they had to learn all of this karate, and looking back on it, I have the greatest videos of them like rolling around, practicing their karate on the sound stage. We don't get to see each other as often as I'd like, but yeah, Nick has come to watch a taping of Baby Daddy, and we've gone skiing together.
Have you ever fallen for a best friend or been involved in a ~love triangle~ like your character on Baby Daddy? I don't think I've ever been caught up in a real love triangle, but yeah I think for me it comes from a place of, I'm a very protective person and I'm very, I don't want to say shy, but I tend to fall for people once I've been around them for a minute because I trust them and I'm willing to let them into my world a little more, so I can definitely say I've fallen for a friend.2. I traveled Europe with Jean-Luc and we slept in hostels together and pulled it off so, yeah, I think it's a possibility.3. For example, there's a scene this season where Tahj and I are in a hot tub, and we're supposed to duck under the water and come up and deliver the lines, and when we were under the water our director cleared the entire set. They'll turn the mics down in between takes when we're getting notes, but sometimes we'll misjudge when the mics have come on [and are] live again for the audience, so, they've heard a couple things they probably should not have (laughs).5. CK: The funniest person in the world is Melissa Peterman. CK: We all are very close, we've all been going out to dinner every night here in New York. When you were on Dancing With the Stars, did you ever freak out or forget choreography right before you went on? I like getting to see other places for work, so to live in North Carolina for a couple months was fun. I got an audition, so I dress up in this whole, like, '60s look and learned an old song and had on the whole outfit. But I'm also a big Urban Outfitters girl, and Forever 21 — I don't think labels make fashion.
So we're doing the scene and we're not quite sure — there's usually guys behind the camera and we didn't know what was going on — and in the two minutes it took for us to do the scene, the whole set was cleared. I don't even know if we play a lot of pranks as much as just poke fun at each other — and Melissa is the quickest. Jean-Luc's probably my best friend; we hang out a lot. CK: My room is actually called Bar Chelsea, and I have a neon sign that says "Bar Chelsea." Two seasons ago after our Christmas party, we had a little party on the lot, and people just weren't ready to leave. So I'd want to live with Tahj and have him design everything. CK: I honestly can say, I feel like I blacked out during every dance. But all of them have been amazing for different reasons.16. And I walk in, and it's American Dreamz with a Z, that Mandy Moore movie that was supposed to be super cool. It was "pixcstar." So, a lot of actors make corporations, like little production companies. I think it's your own style, what you put together.
You probably remember Chelsea Kane (formerly known as Chelsea Staub) from her breakout role in The Jonas Brothers' Disney Channel show Jonas, but since then, she's starred in a number of your favorite hit TV shows, scored third place on Season 12 of Dancing With the Stars, and now has a starring role as Riley in the ABC Family sitcom Baby Daddy. Has anything super awkward ever happened when you're taping in front of a live audience? So that was one of my favorites, the very first one. A., probably the one where we got to take the helicopter ride. And reading the script I was like, Psh, how are they going to do this? So we definitely keep in touch, and, you know, reach out, text, etc. You’ve had a lot of roles on various TV shows (One Tree Hill, Wizards of Waverly Place, Jonas, etc.) — what was your favorite experience and why? One Tree Hill was really cool, because I was actually working with my boyfriend at the time. CK: My favorite place in the world is this store called My Sister's Closet in Arizona and it's the greatest secondhand shop in the world.
Chelsea recently stopped by Buzz Feed New York to give us an inside look into her world, on set and off — everything from crazy moments while filming to what her AIM screen name was back in the day.1. I'm definitely more of a guy's girl — it's drama-free (laughs) and I have a couple great girlfriends — but I think I relate to my character Riley in the sense that I would prefer to hangout with a group of guys, so I think you can be friends. There were a couple pranks we played on set once in a while. So, Derek won last year, which made me extremely upset because I am a huge perfectionist. CK: Um, it's usually probably something from Jean-Luc, because we forget we're mic'd. And then they picked us up in a helicopter on top of the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood and flew us all over the city. And we shot the show in North Carolina, and it's really fun. I think the worst ever — do you remember the TV show American Dreams? Why did I pick my fifth-grade screen name to represent me professionally? So, I like finding cool, one-of-a-kind pieces like that.
