The celebrity ballroom has new champions.  It took weeks of intense competition, but on Tuesday night, hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews finally handed off the Mirror Ball trophy to the winners of "Dancing with the Stars" Season 22: Nyle DiMarco and his pro partner, Peta Murgatroyd.  The deaf model, who also won Cycle 22 of "America's Next Top Model" last year, has been a beloved contestant since the beginning.

The Story of Us
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Like many of you, I often mark the arbitrary passage of time known as "the new year" by reflecting on my personal and professional accomplishments and shortcomings and laying out a plan for what I endeavor to do differently going forward. Translation: in late December, I get drunk and daydream. Don't make it weird. A fundamental part of my New Year's ritual involves reading a lot of year end lists, thought pieces, blog posts and more on the people, events and trends that dominated popular (and sometimes not so popular) discourse and media coverage and became "trending topics." I consider why those issues mattered enough to warrant our collective attention, how and if I can (or should) contribute to the dialogue around those topics as opposed to "staying in my lane" and how those ideas can be expressed creatively. Then I write foolish tweets like the one I posted in late November -- Just because white political refugees came to a new country & massacred the natives...
