Ba, Mom, Vy, and Val I know you guys probably won’t see this, but I love you all. It’s rare to see an Asian family support their children to do whatever THEY want to do. It’s because of you I have these dreams. Ba, congrats on graduating and thank you for being the best supportive dad ever. Mom, thank you for the hugs every morning and working so hard to make our house a home. Jenn/Vy, you don’t have to be as nice you are to me but you’re one of the best sisters. Valerie, you’re so talented and smart. You’re making our whole Phamily proud. Thank you guys for everything. I’m blessed with the best Phamily ever.

To the RedHeads — you guys kicked off my year right. I’m so glad that MNR brought us together. I know drifted off from the group, but that doesn’t discount from the fact that you made this year incredible. I’m honored that being Thomas’ Valentine made me meet so many wonderful people. Thank you all. One Love.

Pipsters, you made my summer such a memorable time. I didn’t make Bowtie Ambassadors happen… YOU did. With all your lovely stories, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my summer. It was the best. I owe all of that to you. You guys are beyond terrific.
Eileen, Bridget, Pip, Chris and Jim – You make me wanna cry every time I hear from you. You are such an amazing family. I don’t even know were to start. Thank you all for being so kind and supportive. I see where Pip gets it. Know that I’ll be there every step of the way to do what I can to help Philip shine brighter than he already does. Much love to all of you.
Tristan Troupe/ DWTS Troupe, Cast and Family
First of all, Tristan I already wrote a whole spiel for you. 😛 But it doesn’t hurt to say how wonderful you are ANY DAY… because it’s true. I love you oh so much and you’ve given me happiness that can’t be replaced. Thanks for making both my heart and feet dance. I love you and Carol. Keep being classy, wise and talented.
Tristan Troupe: Gail, Jennifer, Maria, Kay Travis and All – You guys are so amazing. Tristan’s heart have touched all of you and have inspired me so. I’m so glad such a sweetheart has brought us all together. Thank you for being there for me when I needed you. You gals and guy are so awesome and magnificent. We will all have our chance to dance with Tristan one day and I’ll be even more honored to meet you. See you all in Cali!
Anna, Henry, Emma, Sonny, Sasha, Dmitry, Louis – If you’ve done an interview with me, tweeted me or followed me I thank you. DWTS has been the ONE show I’ve watched for 7 1/2 years. I love the stories that come out of it. You all are not just a talented bunch. You do marvelous things with your gifted skills. Thanks for the laughs, the tears, the interviews and the wonderful memories. Keep on dancing and I’ll be blessed to support you all.
If you’re not mentioned don’t think it was intentional. It’d take all day to say how truly blessed I am to have such a wonderful group of people in my life. 2012 was nothing short of a fantastic year and 2013 will be even better. There’s graduation, moving onto the “real world” with a job (hopefully) and so much more excitement. Thank you ALL for a very crazy, but phenomenal year. It was one of the best years in my life. Cheers. Have a Merry Christmas and have a better new Year.
