Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff Steps Out For Breast Cancer

Last night on the QVC channel, Karina joined other celebrities for QVC’s “FFANY Shoes on Sale” to help sell shoes for Breast Cancer research and education. Radar Online reports that for the past 17 years, QVC special benefit has sold over 1.5 million pairs of shoes and has donated more than $35 million to the cause. This year, more than 90,000 pairs of shoes from over 80 brands will be sold.

Good job Karina! I hope you were able to sell a lot of shoes!!!

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS Season 13, Week 5 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Here’s the trend for the week: rumba rumba tango tango samba samba….jive foxtrot??  Ummm….yeah, love me some theme weeks.  It makes it SO easy to compare the dancers to each other. :::rolls eyes:::  Rob versus Nancy? Don’t much care to see either Rumba…sorry, fans.  I think Hope and David both could do really well with the tango and I think the judges want them around for a while so these should be no brainers.  The sambas?? Well, JR will rock it and Chaz won’t – mission accomplished there, too.  Carson’s Jive scares the crap outta me and Ricki’s Foxtrot?? Well, that scares me too, but only because I know what song they are dancing to – and they kinda  got screwed (again). However, they are FAR from alone on crappy song selection…more on that later. :-)

ETA: Gah, I hate Hello.  Ugh.

ETA 2: And Tristan fans breathe a sigh of relief. :-)  It could have been worse. Can I say I also do NOT like JR’s song. :::sigh::: It’s fine for a Samba, I’m sure, I just don’t like that song.

ETA 3: Yes, we’re aware that Chaz is dancing to Mark and Shawn’s Samba song. :-)

ETA 4: Squeeeee…..Tainted Love. “Touch me please I cannot stand the way you teaaase!!!”

ETA 5: JR is dancing 4th?? Hmmm…that may or may not be good. 4th of 8th might be at the top of the hour, but dang, we’re gonna have a lot of filler.

ETA 6: Step one in “this is Hope’s week” is complete, she’s dancing first and setting the bar.

ETA 7: You think Hope has it bad? Carson is in the crap spot!

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. :-)
