Noah Galloway Talks Wedding Planning, Writing a Memoir and Life After Dancing with the Stars

Originally posted 07/09/2015 06:45PM

Noah Galloway is the first to admit his life has had its "ups and downs," including his recent on-camera proposal to his girlfriend of two years, Jamie Boyd (a major up), and he wants to formally share his stories – high, low and everywhere in between.

"I want to get a book done as quickly as possible," Galloway told PEOPLE on the red carpet of the CLIO Sports Awards. In a slick Kenneth Cole suit, the double amputee and U.S. Army veteran had Boyd by his side and said he plans to center his memoir on "my different experiences."

At Wednesday's ceremony, Galloway was met with a standing ovation when he introduced the Innovative Grand CLIO. The notoriety leading up to that standing O accelerated dramatically this spring during his time on Dancing with the Stars, when he won over fans' hearts with his passionate dancing and by dropping down on one knee in front of Boyd in an unforgettable moment that's racked up plenty of hits on YouTube.

After wowing on the screen, now the real-life Iraq hero hopes to inspire on the page, too.

Derek Hough: If I Weren't a Dancer, I'd Be Indiana Jones

Originally posted 07/09/2015 03:30PM

If dancing ever fails for Derek and Julianne Hough, the siblings already have their backup plans in place.

Instead of making a living as a professional dancer, "I'd be Indiana Jones," Derek quipped to PEOPLE at a dance class sponsored by Proactiv+ that the duo led in New York City. "That's not even a joke answer. That's a real answer. … I would be traveling the world finding relics."

Julianne also has a foolproof career ready to go, too – it just involves a bit of luck. Julianne proclaimed, "I would win the lottery so I could travel the world and do seminars with young girls about self-esteem and encouragement and empowerment."

Rumer Willis triumphantly won Dancing with the Stars last season – but the actress and singer said her emotional victory wasn't embraced by everyone.

Long dogged by Internet bullies, Willis, 26, said bringing home the Mirrorball Trophy did little to silence the critics.

"Just because I was celebrated on Dancing With the Stars doesn't mean the bullying has stopped," she tells Glamour in the magazine's July issue. "After the show started, I had to block almost 10 people every day on social media because they wouldn't leave me alone."
