JJJ caught up with the 16-year-old reigning DWTS champ while she was supporting An American Girl Story – Ivy & Julie 1976: A Happy Balance earlier this week and we’ve got the exclusive scoop!
“My tip for Simone would be to wear socks with her heels so she doesn’t get blisters,” Laurie explained.
And what will it take besides hard work and practice to win?
“Remember to smile!” Laurie told JJJ with her signature grin.
Laurie also let us know that she plans to be attending DWTS tapings all season long and even was in the audience for the show’s premiere!
