DWTS Season 14, Weeks 5 – The Cheesecake Awards!!

Ta DA!! We’re in catch up mode. :-)

First - WEEK 5

The “Can’t Carry a Tune in a Bucket” Award: Len and Bruno, for their rendition of either “Maria” or “How Do you Solve a Problem Like Maria”…we can’t be sure. :-)

Heidi: So, the first time I saw it, I thought they were doing a little West Side Story…the second time I saw it, I’m honestly not sure. Don’t quit your day job, boys…if I can’t tell what you’re going for, you can’t sing. :-)  If I had to bet, I would call Len Sound of Music and Bruno West Side Story. :-)

Courtney: Screw musicals…I think we’re giving them too much credit there.  I think they both were just making it up as they went along and just hoping that that the audience was even less educated than they were and would just assume that they were singing a legitimate song…and the fact that they were both doing it might somehow lend creedence to their made-up tune.  Whatever it was…it was dumb.

Brooke Burke Flub O’the Night: “We’ve combined your jokes with the judges scores…”

Heidi: Have you heard the one about the judge who walked into the bar?? He tried to give the barmaid a “10” and….well, I can’t think of a good joke. But does one really need one when Brooke is around? :-) In all fairness, she’s been better this season than previously, but her occasional tongue tripping can be entertaining.

Courtney: My aunt used to have this parrot named Joey that would repeat literally ANY word it heard – but it would do it at random times, and sometimes form sentences that weren’t quite coherent, contextually.  I’m beginning to think that Brooke is the reincarnation of Joey, the way she will occasionally swap out the word she intends to use with one she has just heard or thought about :-) If so, I fully expect her to start making the skud missile sound effect and start calling people SOB’s by season’s end…can’t wait ;-)

The Award for Best Reaction to being Called Safe: Melissa Gilbert – Half-Pint CUSSED!!!! :-)

Heidi: Hehehehe…loved it. Sweet, quiet Melissa gets bleeped on live television. You go girl. You really CAN take the Prairie out of the girl. ;-)

Courtney: And it was a LOOOONG cuss – like a full 5 seconds of the sound being completely bleeped out.  I can only imagine what is was she said…whatever it was, I’m sure I’d be proud ;-) Read more..

May 6, 2012 I Written By

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 Maria Menounos, Roshon Fegan, and William Levy Dish On Their Favorite Things About Dancing And More

Maria Menounos, Roshon Fegan, and William Levy answer some tweets from fans. They dish on their favorite things so far about dancing on Dancing With The Stars and lots more. I don’t want to ruin it for you if you haven’t seen these, so, I say no more. :)

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 .

Pure Dancing With The Stars Donald Driver And Peta Murgatroyd Picking Karina Smirnoff’s Brain

At his blog written for today at JS Online, Donald says he and Karina are “working overtime” on their two dances to make them as perfect as they can. They couldn’t be more pleased to have Karina helping them. Below is a highlight. See the link for more if interested. I always love how Donald updates us on his family. There is a cute picture there too.

Peta and I have to work on two dances this week — the tango and the jive. Peta and I are dancing the tango and we are adding Karina Smirnoff to our team for the jive. (I know I said I was going to make you wait until Monday to find out but I couldn’t wait that long to tell my die-hard fans!)

Karina was Gavin DeGraw’s partner and has been on the show since the third season, so Peta and I are definitely trying to pick her brain a little bit for any tips she can give us to help us win the Mirror Ball Trophy.

Everything is good with the family, Charity just started crawling the other day and is getting close to saying her first word. It’s truly special to watch your kids grow up right in front of your eyes.

Also, below is a new video of Donald from Amazing Goodwill where he talks about both dances. No rest for the weary …even at home. Hint: “It’s crazy and a lot of fun”

Bring it Donald and Peta. We’re ready!
