Carrie Ann Inaba Life

Carrie Ann Inaba (born January 5, 1968) is an American television presenter, dancer, choreographer, actress, and singer.

Fook Yu in Austin Powers, Goldmember, and as a current co-host of CBS Daytime's The Talk, she is best known for her appearances on ABC television's Dancing with the Stars.

She began her career as a singer in Japan but quickly became known for her dancing, first introducing herself to American audiences as one of the original Fly Girls on Fox sketch comedy show In Living Color from 1990 to 1992.

Early life

Inaba was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, graduating from Punahou School in 1986. She is of Irish, Japanese, and Chinese descent. Her first dance lessons were three years old in a "creative movement" class, where children performed on their own with scarves. She would dance in her backyard that overlooked the Pacific Ocean as an infant.

She studied at Sophia University and University of California, Irvine, before graduating from the University of California, Los Angeles, with a B.A. International arts and cultures graduate with a degree in world arts and cultures.

Personal life

In 2006, she courted Russian dancer Artem Chigvintsev. They appeared on So You Think You Can Dance, a programme that broadcasts.

Regis Philbin was "answering" a letter on March 31, 2011 when someone asked for details on how to propose. The lights dimmed just before Inaba's boyfriend, Jesse Sloan, appeared on stage. Sloan, bent on one knee, asked for Inaba's hand, to which she replied, "Yes!" with violinists playing in the background.

I will marry you!"

Inaba and Jesse first appeared on eHarmony, an online dating portal. In an interview with Us Weekly in 2011, Inaba announced that she and Sloan would marry in the summer of that year. Inaba and Sloan had amicably ended their involvement in September 2012.

In December 2016, Inaba revealed that she and actor Robb Derringer had become engaged after a few months of dating. On the California coast, the derringer proposed a romantic, secluded beach, which was the scene of their first date. They called off the project in September 2017.

Inaba has expressed a profound love and admiration for animals, assisting groups such as the Humane Society of the United States and PETA, and the establishment of the Carrie Ann Animal Foundation in 2012. Inaba launched a new YouTube series about shelter cats in 2012, inspired by her love of the creatures. At the same time, she has had up to seven rescue animals as pets.

In a 2011 interview with Prevention, Inaba said she has a vision of 20/750, which is corrected with eyeglasses and contact lenses. She will not have LASIK eye surgery, but she will have a "soft-focus morning" before she's ready to "deal with the world" as a result of her vision impairment. She also said she suffers from spinal stenosis, which she believes she started with a neck injury during gymnastics when she was eight years old.

She also has Sjögren syndrome, a chronic autoimmune disease that damages moisture-producing glands. She has spoken out in support of increasing knowledge of SS and promoting research, diagnosis, and a cure.

Inaba revealed that she had been recently diagnosed with Lupus on September 17, 2019.

She also suffers from chronic exhaustion syndrome, chronic pain, and fibromyalgia.

It was reported that she had tested positive for COVID-19 on December 10, 2020, but later recovered.

Inaba has worked with the Entertainment Industry Foundation's iParticipate campaign, an American volunteer advocacy group, and Drea's Dream, a dance therapy program for children with cancer. She is also a founding member of the Dizzy Feet Foundation, Nigel Lythgoe's dance education group. Both women registered in the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women after her mother's fight against cancer in 2008.


Carrie Ann Inaba Career


In 1986, an 18-year-old Inaba received a talent show in Hawaii. She was then staged to be a pop star in Japan and was given songs to read phonetically in Japanese from a lyric sheet. Despite the fact that her first single made it to the top of the charts, she "realized" that it had nothing to do with how artistic you are. "Your face becomes a brand they sell." Inaba lived in Tokyo from 1986 to 1988, and was a well-known actor. "Party Girl" (backed by "Smith Blue"), "Be Your Girl" (backed by "612 Capezio"), and "Yume no Senaka"), a weekly radio and television series, were among the three singles released by the artist.

Inaba made history by returning to America, where she starred as one of the "Fly Girls"—a group of dancers on the television show In Living Color—from 1990 to 1992. She also performed at Prince's legendary Glam Slam with Canadian singer Norman Iceberg and dancers Viktor Manoel (David Bowie's "Glass Spider" tour) and Luca Tommassini. During Madonna's 1993 Girlie Show World Tour, Inaba performed as a featured solo dancer, only on the condition that she shave her hair. It was worth it after he waited. According to American Fitness, her favorite dance is rumba, since she says it is "very strong and demanding."

Inaba appeared in the film version of Monster Mash in 1995 as one of the background dancers. Fook Yu appeared in Goldmember (2002) as Fook Yu, as Diane Mizota, who played her twin sister Fook Mi. The two women are not related, but Mizota had been cast for her role, she was asked if she knew any actresses who resembled her, including Inaba. Inaba, who had appeared briefly in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, was given the role, and the two women were made up to appear as identical twins. Inaba and Mizota played with Mike Myers in a Motorola commercial in 2005. In later years, Inaba would later regret playing Fook Yu because of the negative stereotypes that were used.

Inaba has performed (most as a dancer) in the films Monster Mash: The Movie, Lord of Illusions, Showgirls, Boys and Girls, Flintstones II, Freak and American Virgin, and the television series Jack & Jill and Nikki.

Inaba has appeared on The View, the ABC talent competition, Bruno vs. Carrie Ann and the FOX special Breaking the Magician's Code: The Secrets of Magic's Biggest Secrets have been revealed.

On GSN, Inaba was voted host of the game show 1 vs. 100 in October 2010. Inaba announced that she would not return to host the show after the first season.

Inaba has been one of three judges on the Dancing with the Stars for the third time.

For the past two seasons, Inaba had been a regular guest co-host on CBS Daytime's Talk show The Talk. Julie Chen officially replaced original host Julie Chen as the fifth co-host and moderator permanently, with her debuting on January 2, 2019. Inaba revealed on April 26, 2021, that she would take a leave of absence from the program. Inaba will not be returning to the show for the upcoming season on August 20, 2021.

Inaba's choreography has appeared in numerous television series, including American Idol, American Juniors, All American Girl, He's a Lady, In Search of the Partridge Family (in which she also appeared on air), Married by Inaba, The Sexiest Bachelor in America Pageant, and Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire. She also choreographed the Miss America Pageant for five years. She appeared on So You Think You Can Dance in the first season, where she provided choreography for the "choreography round."

Inaba served as an honorary judge at the 2009 USA Dance National Dance Sport Championships.
