'Dancing with the Stars' dancer Helio Castroneves postpones wedding


By Christopher Rocchio, 10/29/2007 

Dancing with the Stars fifth-season celebrity participant Helio Castroneves and his professional partner Julienne Hough have something in common.

Five months after Hough postponed her August 2007 wedding to former dancer Zach Wilson because she was so busy participating in Dancing with the Stars, Castroneves and his fiancee -- Cuban fashion designer Aliette Vazquez -- have also decided to delay their wedding.

The 32-year-old Brazilian IndyCar Series racer proposed to Vazquez last Thanksgiving and the couple planned to wed this December following the conclusion of IndyCar's 2007 season, however those plans were apparently put on hold when he decided to appear on Dancing with the Stars.

"We postponed it for a little bit until next year," Castroneves told Entertainment Tonight.  "Everything is happening so quick.  The championship is over, the dancing started, and basically, I was like, 'Ali, let's take it easy.  Otherwise, we will be divorced before we get married!'"

Castroneves added the ceremony will "hopefully" occur in January because if it's delayed much longer than that, it will have to wait another full year due to the start of the IndyCar Series 2008 season in March.

"Now it's becoming, 'Let's take it easy.  Let's take a break,'" he told Entertainment Tonight.  "Because I know after all this rush it would be a little bit too much.  I need a little bit more time off."

There is a bright spot to postponing the wedding, as Castroneves said he's found the perfect dance instructor in Hough.

"She's probably going to be teaching my fiancee to dance," he told Entertainment Tonight.  "Because now I want to dance with someone who knows how to dance."

Hough said she looks forward to the opportunity.

"I'm so excited," the Dancing with the Stars' fourth-season professional partner champion told Entertainment Tonight.  "Ali actually said, 'Come in and teach me some lessons and we can dance together.'  Absolutely I will be [at their wedding]."

Castroneves is one of two remaining male celebrity participants still competing on Dancing with the Stars 5, along with All My Children actor Cameron Mathison.

"The good news is, both of us get along really well," Castroneves told Entertainment Tonight.  "Cameron has a great personality.  Instead of fighting with each other, we're going to try to put our power together and try to beat those girls.  It will be something fun to watch."
