Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will be blogging for PEOPLE.com about competing with Gilles Marini in the current all-star season.

Our group "Gangnam Style" dance was the highlight for all of us last week. It was ridiculous. Maks [Chmerkovskiy] was in charge of most of it. We had two big group rehearsals, and for the rest of it, we worked around our schedules on our own time. We had to come up with the concepts, but Maks gave us the towel theme.

Hitting the half-century mark can be daunting, but for Kelly Preston, who turned 50 on Oct. 13, the milestone birthday is reason to celebrate.

"I feel incredible. It floored me for a bit, but now I love it and I feel better than I have in years," the actress tells PEOPLE. "You are as old as you feel and I feel like I'm 25!"

It doesn't hurt that Preston, who lost 42 pounds over the first 14 months after giving birth to son Benjamin on Nov. 23, 2010, has shed an additional 7 lbs. in recent months. "I go up and down one or two pounds without worrying about it," she says. "I think I'd like to stay at this weight. I feel really healthy and I have tons of energy."
