Dancing With The Stars ~ Eighties Week

Dancing With The Stars .. With A Little Snark

Oct 20, 2011 by

Well girlfriends, as women of a certain age we all remember the 80’s. While we were all probably fabulous it is important to remember it was NOT a good time for fashion. What were we thinking???

This week on Dancing with the Stars, it was a sequined polyester, big shouldered celebration of all things 80’s. Funny how I could remember the words to just about all the songs! It’s the halfway point in the competition and the performers are either “getting it” or just there cuz they have a big fan base voting for them.

My favorite JR Martinez won the week doing an amazing samba. The man can move! Got great marks and rave reviews.

Rob Kardashian is actually getting pretty good. Did a sexy rumba that surprised the judges and earned him good marks. He still looks about 12…

Nancy Grace continues to annoy me, looked like a 1880’s saloon girl( and by girl I mean female- NOT young) It was at best mediocre but got the votes.

Ricki Lake did a weird foxtrot, was not as graceful as weeks gone by but has a strong fan base so she’s safe.

Hope Solo…wish this woman impressed me (and the judges) more. Everything looks good on paper but she’s just not an exciting performer.

Chaz Bono. What can I say. There’s something about a middle aged, overweight man in a neon green polyester tux that is just a little unpleasant. Not to mention his fly was down the whole time. He is very lucky his mother is Cher and she is telling all her Twitter followers to please vote for him. Safe.

David Arquette did a good tango. He’s a good dancer; there is something a little disturbing about him. Giggles way too much and is strangely hyper. Still bringing the ex and his adorable daughter.

And poor Carson Kressley. No one embraced the whole look more. Dressed as a spandex cheerleader, he did a fair jive to Wham’s Wake me up. He just looks like he is having the best time! Sadly he didn’t have the votes this week and is out. Did he deserve to go? No! Chaz and Nancy were both lesser dancers. Almost makes me want to vote!

You’re all going to want to be there Monday… it’s Broadway Week!
