DWTS Season 14 – Oh Come On, That’s Not Gonna Happen! Chapter 3

In case you missed chapter 1 and chapter 2,  this is a series where I talk about what I see on Twitter that makes me roll my eyes in exasperation or laugh…or just groan in disbelief. :-)

Once again, we have a series of people who don’t seem to read and comprehend the written word all that well…or perhaps they just read too fast. Whatever the case may be, they are a tad annoying.  Why, you ask?  Well, Huffington Post (awesome site, btw) publishing a post that they very clearly call their “wish list” is NOT a listing of people who are going to be on the show, OR a listing of people actually rumored to be on the show. Please look up the words “wish” and “list”. Thank you. :-)

And really, how many times do Tebow and his reps need to say he’s NOT doing the show before people chill on that rumor? Getting sick of his name in my tweetdeck.

What else is annoying me?? What’s “not gonna happen”??  Spamming everyone and their freakin brother with “tell them we want Marina Sirtis on DWTS” is NOT going to actually get her on the show. What it will do is piss me, and everyone else who does twitter searches, off…in the extreme. Especially when your Twitter icon is annoying as some are.  Really, just stop. I already don’t like this person or her fans and I don’t even know who she is…oh, and by the way – she will NOT have an impact on ratings one way or the other.  Every year a fan group makes this claim….and it’s usually the fans of someone I’ve never even heard of before. Go figure.

Who wants to explain to Xtina’s manager that “The Voice” did not beat DWTS in ratings on Monday night??  Do I have to say anymore?? He’s probably comparing The Voice’s numbers to those of DWTS last season…still wrong. Unless they’re both on at the same time, you have no business comparing the numbers. When they were on at the same time, DWTS was beating The Voice easily.  BTW, hell of a lead in, that Super Bowl.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the Voice. It’s far superior to anything I saw of the X-Factor (admittedly, I got bored early on that one) and it’s different enough from AI that I enjoyed it on Sunday night. But I don’t like misleading tweets like his – it’s what starts turning all the “wish lists” into serious rumors. Very misleading.

Oy Veh – sudden increase in the need to campaign for pros happened just yesterday. Namely Chelsie and Dmitry. People – your campaigning won’t be any more effective than that done by the fans of Marina Sirtis. For one thing, they appear to outnumber you (even though it’s more repetition by a few tweeters than it is a massive number of people tweeting about it, if you follow me) and for another…if they don’t find them a match, they don’t find them a match. Usually, it’s that simple.  I think Tristan’s appearance is a bit detrimental to Dmitry, even though I think he’s an inch or two taller than Tristan is, because Tristan appears to have wide appeal. Chelsie I’m not worried about. I think she’ll be back.  But seriously – the show is watched by about 20 million people.  Five or five hundred tweets ain’t gonna sway them.

Okay, now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, it’s back to pro watch. :-)

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 Mark Ballas, Peta Murgatroyd, Karina Smirnoff, and Tristan MacManus Perform In Minnesota

As you know from some previous posts, Dancing With The Stars pros Mark Ballas, Peta Murgatroyd, Karina Smirnoff, and Tristan MacManus performed at the Grand Casino Hinckley and Grand Casino Mille Lacs last weekend in Minnesota. GARRETT TETRICK PHOTOGRAPHY was able to attend and captured some amazing photos of them. You can view them all here if interested. I especially love the last picture with Peta and Tristan. Sexy and so passionate! :) Thanks to @PetaMurgatroyd for the twitter notice on it. You can see her comment to the photographer as well as seeing one of the pictures below in the link.

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 Cheryl Burke Attends QVC’s New York Fashion Week Runway Show (Photos)

Cheryl has certainly been making some cool press rounds this week in New York City as you might have read in a previous posting. She’s been promoting Dancing With The Stars, her book “Dancing Lessons”, and her new Skin Smooth Campaign with Veet. Last night, Cheryl attended QVC’s New York Fashion Week runway show pictured above. You can see more pics of her at Zimbio and Getty Images. Be sure to see her twitter account as she posted a few backstage shots and tweeted about all the fun she had. What a Diva in purple and black pumps!!

Also, I don’t know what this tweet was about last night, but, I’m liking it. :D


Just had an amazing meeting! Great things to come in 2012!!!! Exciting.
