Rumer Willis will finish her album ‘when my schedule permits after I win the trophy’

Rumer Willis is competing on this season of Dancing With The Stars. In her introduction she described herself as “a singer and an actress” but explained that “you guys would probably know me because my parents have been in a couple of movies that you guys might have seen.” Rumer and her partner, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, received the highest scores of the night in the premiere episode this week. They got straight eights across the board for a total of 32 points. So Rumer can really dance and she’s going for it.

On a superficial note, Rumer premiered new veneers on DWTS. They were noticeably absent in the pre-interview practice clips that aired before her performance (at about 1:20 into this video and screenshot below). On the air, her teeth looked abnormally even and white. I’ll just say that she didn’t need them at all and that her teeth were perfectly lovely before.

Both Rumer’s dad, Bruce Willis and her mom, Demi Moore, were in the audience of DWTS, as were Rumer’s sisters. Bruce, 60, was there with his wife, Emma Heming, 36, while Demi, 52, was seated next to one of Rumer’s friends. (I scoured Rumer’s Instagram and it’s this guy, her friend Tye Blue. The last we heard, Demi was dating a 28 year-old drummer named Sean Friday. Demi has been with Sean for over a year and he’s reportedly living with her. I think Rumer is single but I’m not sure.) Here’s a screenshot of Demi with Rumer’s friend in the audience.

Rumer, 26, has a new interview with Larry King Now to promote her DWTS appearance. She’s very soft spoken and came across well, if a bit entitled. She called herself a “musician” and a “singer” and added that “I’m trying to just do the scope of all of them if I can” meaning acting and singing. She’s currently working on an album with Linda Perry and said that she’ll hopefully complete it “when my schedule permits after I win the mirror ball trophy.” She added “it’s much better to go in and be confident than insecure.”

Rumer also talked about her famous parents, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, and praised them for working so hard to keep the family together in the wake of their divorce. (Bruce and Demi split in 2000 when Rumer was 12.)

I never had to split up vacations or split up birthdays. They always made an effort to do all of the family events still together and made such an effort to still have our family be as one unit, as opposed to two separate things, which I think really made an impact.[via People]

That’s nice, it really speaks to how Demi and Bruce stayed friends in the wake of their divorce. That kind of successful co-parenting seems rare in Hollywood and in general.

In terms of Rumer’s chances on DWTS, if she has the chops, more power to her. She’s had a lot handed to her and she does strike me as a “born on third base” type. Plus she’s said as much. This is her chance to prove herself.

    She looks good. I don’t mind the veneers. I can actually see that she resembles Demi when before all I could see was Bruce.

    • chaine says:

      Whatever she had done to her jaw is what improves her appearance. The teeth look too perfect and white, but maybe whatever she had done to her jaw necessitated some dental work and she decided to go all out?

    • Wren33 says:

      They are sooo white, but actually I think they really work for her. Not sure if she also did something else.

  2. Pandy says:

    She was pretty good so it will be interesting to see how she makes out over the season. I felt a bit sorry for her in the intro. She says singer/actress but then had to note that she has famous parents; ie., this is actually why she’s on the show.

    • qwerty says:

      Save your sympathy for those who need it. She;s there cause she wants to, not cause she’s got 4 kids to feed.

      • why not says:

        I get sick of these kids doing what their parents do, I never hear of them using the family money to live comfortably whilst pursuing a PHD or perhaps becoming a teacher or a doctor or something, always a bloody singer or actress. I think it shows a major lack or imagination and that they are not in touch with who they truly are. So that means in the end they are just using connections to make money, that’s it.

  3. Dubois says:

    Those new veneers are awful. They take over her whole face. It’s almost as bad as when Hilary Duff had hers. What dentist would do this?

    • QQ says:

      Miley Cyrus’ Dentist??

      I scoffed cause Actress and Musician?? Who Is clamoring for this Supposed Music you do Baby??

    • 30winks says:

      Terrible choppers. They look like an old person’s dentures. She had a great smile before, what a terrible waste.

    • Mrs Odie says:

      The veneers are probably temps. In a month or two, she’ll get the permanent ones and they’ll look a lot better.

    • Fran says:

      Yep, those veneers are waaaaay too big and make her look too horse-y, she really doesn’t need them.
      Girl, spit ’em out!

  4. mimif says:

    That lion tattoo. 🙊

  5. Allie says:

    I appreciate her acknowledging that we only know who she is because of her family (I’m looking at you, Lilly Collins and Kendall Jenner). However, should she really call herself an actress and singer if she had no success in either? Like can I call myself a model because people take pictures of me?

    • mimif says:

      Yes! I’m identifying as a slice of pizza today because my face looks like one. Tomorrow it will be baked ham.

    • lenje says:

      If acting and singing is her main job (i.e. she gets paid for either one, however small), yes, she may call herself an actress and a singer.

    • theoneandonly says:

      I had friends that visited Ireland last fall and there were musicians – male and female – in every pub that have more talent in their pinkies than this entitled snot, or all the other Disney/nickelodeon kids in their entire being, but those musicians play for love and culture – these snots use music as famewhoring by other means, since there’s no way you can tell me she has an interest in music – like acting and modeling – for it’s own sake.

  6. aims says:

    I can’t believe people watch that show.

    • Brin says:


    • Pumpkin Pie says:

      I used to love DWTS, but now not so much.
      I will still watch the show but skip the judges’ comments, that’s the part I like the least, they say nasty things sometimes. And now they have four judges and I think the dances are shorter so they can accommodate that additional judge. That sxxks. I want to watch people dance. And I get the feeling there are things going on behind the scenes that make the show less “real”, You know what I’m saying?

  7. Size Does Matter says:

    Go, Rumer! I think she’s cool.

    I saw a photo of her yesterday and couldn’t tell what was so different about her lower face. Now I can’t unsee the veneers. My dentist has been trying to talk me into them, but I’m scared.

    • KellyBee says:

      Its not just the veneers that make her look different she got her lips and chin done also.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      I guess that’s how this happens? People are talked into it by their dentists. Smh. Really unnecessary and unfortunate in her case.

  8. Janie says:

    I was pleasantly surprised at how well she danced. She looked really lovely and graceful. I’d like to see Val win, they have a better chance than a lot of the others.

  9. MrsBPitt says:

    Rumer was very good on DWTS! As soon as her dance finished, they put the camera on her family and Bruce had the wierdest look on his face! He almost looked like he didn’t know what was going on, or maybe it was a pissed off look. Everyone else was clapping and cheering and smiling. Very odd…did anyone else notice it?

    • Tanguerita says:

      Never mind Bruce, have you seen Demi’s face? the amount of surgery and fillers is staggering, she literally can’t move her facial muscles, it looks absolutely scary.

      • Bridget says:

        Remember when Demi was the gold standard for subtle ‘freshening’? She’s supporting my theory that people’s faces can only handle a certain number of procedures and fillers before looking weird, no matter the quality of work.

      • holly hobby says:

        She looks like Janice Dickenson on a good year. Yeah she doesn’t look like she used to. Too much work on the face.

    • KellyBee says:

      I notice it when I saw the pictures the other day he just look really grumpy while everyone else was smiling cheering her on.

  10. Greek Chic says:

    The first thing I noticed was the teeth. They are abnormally white and HUGE.

  11. kibbles says:

    Did she get some subtle plastic surgery or did the veneers alter her appearance? I can’t tell, but she doesn’t look the same as she did in the past. She also looks older than her age.

  12. lenje says:

    I don’t have a problem with her calling herself an actress/singer. She considers acting and singing her main job. You never saw her in movies/on stage or in a band? There are also tons of Off-Off broadway actors and singers/songwriters that I never heard of.

  13. oneshot says:

    is her makeup artist a secret hater or just incompetent, I thought everybody knew that you do not cram dark eyeshadow onto deep-set eyes…..

    and she’s had something done to her jaw for sure. I wouldn’t have guessed at what if I hadn’t known about the Korean jaw shaving operations.

  14. Granger says:

    “This is her chance to prove herself.” Prove … what, exactly? That she can dance? Who cares? Seriously, I’m not trying to be snotty… but who cares if Rumer Willis can dance? Sure, dance is performance, but dancing on a reality show isn’t going to prove she can sing, play an instrument, or act, and these are the skills she claims to be known for.

  15. bns says:

    Veneers almost always look ridiculous.

  16. Annika says:

    I feel bad that Rumer & her sisters have been picked on for their looks. I don’t watch DWTS but she looks pretty & I like her haircut.

  17. wonderwoman21 says:

    The age difference between Demi Moore dating a 28 year old and Bruce Willis dating (married?) to a 36 year old is the same. Weird that Demi Moore gets more shit about dating younger, but of course that’s because she’s a woman. And Bruce Willis is still having kids, yuck!

  18. Lahdidahbaby says:

    I’m happy to see Rumer shine in DWTS after all the cruel sh*t she’s taken her entire life for her appearance. It takes both spirit and courage to open yourself up to more public bullying after all that, so good for her! It’s too easy to call her entitled and spoiled, when you consider the fact that the lifelong brutal public commentary about her face ALSO would never have happened if her parents weren’t famous. I’d say one is more than balanced out by the other. Rumer has a great body, btw.

  19. holly hobby says:

    She did really well but I don’t know if it would good enough to stop the CHild of the Corn (Derek Hough). He got a gymnast (of course). I wish he would just drop out like he promised us.

  20. Iheartgossip says:

    Oh this poor delusional person. Just cause Mommy & Daddy were once in the mix does not mean you get a guaranteed spot. Shesh. And, how did those 3 girls end up so unfortunate looking?

    • Deeana says:

      Rumer looks as good as she’s ever looked. Definitely had something done with the formerly overpowering lower jaw.

      As for the veneers, no, just about all veneers DON’T look bad. The oversized, blindingly white look seems to be a Hollywood thing. In real life, these obviously noticeable, wrong-color veneers would be considered to be very poor dentistry. Well done veneers – the kind that MOST professionals do – can greatly enhance the appearance of the person. But one of the goals is to NOT have everyone who sees you saying “Oh my god, she got veneers on her teeth!”

      Demi: Well, we all knew she was going to end up with a “non-moveable face”, didn’t we?

  21. Jayna says:

    What was she thinking with those veneers. It’s all you see. She had a nice smile before.

    I’ve always like Rumer. Sweet girl.

  22. Meg says:

    I still don’t know how two such attractive people like bruce and demi can have such odd looking kids

  23. Debutante says:

    Why is everyone surprised at rumers oversized horse veneers ?? They look just like her mother’s veneers .
    Demi”s teeth are so oversized they distort her whole face (along with the fillers, etc.) Probably went to the same dentist. Awful. She should have left her teeth alone.

  24. Sarah says:

    I found her pleasantly enjoyable in the Sorority movie she did with Anna Faris. But when I have seen her in Hawaii Five-O, I can’t help but think “Yep, she got that job because of her parents being famous”. And I have never watched DWTS because their “stars” have always been so second rate if even that. So I don’t know what to think of her.

  25. Annie says:

    I think Rumer’s a cutie. Not a classic beauty, but hardly this hideous fug like so many people seem to think? Nice face and bod imo – she has that quirky look a lot of fashion designers seem to like.

  26. jane says:

    those teeth look like bathroom tiles

  27. Bob Loblaw says:

    Looks like a mouthful of peppermint Chiclets.

  28. RhoSue says:

    Teeth are definitely not working for her.
