Dancing With The Stars ~ Halloween

Dancing With The Stars With A Little Snark

Nov 5, 2011 by

Once again girlfriends, if you weren’t watching Dancing With The Stars you missed a strange week. We’re down to 6 pairs The dancers were all in Halloween themed costumes, but some of the music just didn’t match the outfit or the dance. As you can see, I’m now considering myself an expert

My favorite JR Martinez did a great tango, his style is so smooth. Judges weren’t crazy about it-said it was his own fault; he has been doing so well that they expect more from him.

Ricki Lake blathered on about a rib injury then did a very energetic Paso. I know, I know. She’s good…blahblahblah. Still don’t like her.

Nancy Grace looked like something out of a Tim Burton version of Willy Wonka. I wish I could explain what she was supposed to be. No clue. Whatever it was-it was NOT flattering!!!  Her Jive was lacking energy, grace and rhythm. Of note: I know this is a contest but the other night was up at 3am (don’t ask!) and caught the end of her HLN show. Does a 60 second montage of her dance then entreats viewers to vote for her. Promises to send all her earnings to Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Certainly a noble cause but seems tacky to be soliciting for votes. Anyway…she had the lowest scores of the evening.

Rob Kardashian rose above all the talk of his sister’s marital drama and did a kickass Tango to the Addams Family theme. This guy gets better every week. Lots of talk about his butt by one of the judges. Must be a family thing.

David Arquette did a really good ChaCha. Like watching his guy dance, cringe when he talks. High pitched squirrel voice and he seems manic all the time. He got good marks and the judges raved about how he continues to improve.

Then there was Maks and poor Hope Solo. You may remember the drama of last week; this week the story continues. Her dancing continues to be awkward but you can tell she’s trying. The judges were exceedingly polite in their comments, Maks refused to even look at them. Then they showed the video of rehearsals and we got to see Maks truly verbally abusive and he actually pushed her several times-not in a constructive/teaching manner but a series of really hard shoves.

During the group dance he storms away from her and other dancers comfort her. This man needs to be disciplined! Or he needs meds. Either way his ego is out of control and this world class athlete does NOT deserve this kind of treatment. No woman does. This is just wrong on so many levels.

After all this, David Arquette was sent packing. Should he have been voted off? No. Lately though this show is becoming more a popularity contest and less a dance show. Go figure. A reality show that isn’t real!!!
