Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Cast – Spotlight on Macy Gray

Surely everyone has heard of Macy Gray, right?  Right?  Well, if you haven’t, she has a pretty thorough (but not necessarily accurate) Wiki page.  Macy is a Grammy Award winning R&B singer with a very distinctive voice. She was nominated  for the Grammy four times, and won once. She has released 4 studio albums of varying success, a compliation and one live album.  Did you know you can’t swear on stage in Barbados? Macy does. She found out the hard way. :-)   Originally from Canton, Ohio – home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and my mother – Macy is divorced with three children. She also apparently opened the Macy Gray Music Academy – I love that. Because she supported Barrack Obama TWO years before he even announced he was running for president, it ought to be REALLY interesting to see how she interacts with Tom Delay. ;-)

Macy also has a surprisingly extensive filmography, having acted in both TV and Film.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS 9 Cast – Spotlight on Natalie Coughlin

One of the great things about DWTS is that I find about about previously unknown (to me) people. Natalie Coughlin is one of those people.  An Olympic swimmer who competed in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics, Natalie is the first American female to win six medals in one olympics, among other things! Such as being first woman ever to win a 100 m backstroke gold in two consecutive Olympics. The things you can learn on Natalie’s Wiki page!! :-)  All I know about her is that my boss says she’s hot. :-)  My boss does indeed rank DWTS contestants by how hot they are, but I can’t say a word since that’s one of the many ways I rank them as well.

Natalie is recently married and was born in California. And she is, indeed, cute – see how other women can say that without fear? ;-)

DWTS 9 Cast – Spotlight on Joanna Krupa

Born in Poland, Joanna Krupa is a top model, TV actress and host recently seen on Superstars, partnered with Terrell Owens.  That partnership was rather disasterous, and Joanna was not afraid to tell ALL about it. :-) They were eliminated once, got brought back due to an injury on another team, and then, I believe, Terrell quit the game. From JoannaKrupa.com:

Born in Warsaw and raised in Chicago (with a strong will and little tolerance for the word “No”), she convinced her mother to move with her and sister Marta to LA in order to pursue modeling and acting …Scandal free and with nothing but hard work and a positive spirit she made it to become one of the world’s most requested models, on to becoming the host of her very own primetime TV show set to air this year.

As for a good cause: PETA’s “I Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur ” campaign with Joanna turned out to be a massive success around the globe. The billboards are a traffic stopper from Hongkong to France

Last Minute Rumor on DWTS Season 9 Cast – Tom DeLay

Good heavens. :::must not talk politics, must not talk politics:::

Tom DeLay? Seriously? Yes, according to Jake Tapper’s Twitter account. Jake would know, I guess, since he’s an ABC News White House Correspondent and it sounds like he’s at their studios in NYC this morning. I don’t regularly follow Jake Tapper, so I have no idea if he is a joker or not. I don’t know whether to hope he is or not.
