DWTS Season 16, Week 3 – The Cheesecake Awards!!

A whole bunch of weird stuff this week. Just weird… occasionally stupid…and sometimes charming.

The “He’s SO one of us!” Award: Tom Bergeron for saying, on the performance night, “Welcome to Prom Night…or ‘It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time’ Night!!”

Heidi: Tom is getting less and less good at hiding his opinion when he thinks something is a stupid idea. :-) And when he’s right, he’s right. I’m quite sure this wasn’t his only crack about Prom night.

Courtney: Tom has obviously been spending too much time lurking at Pure, because he took the words right out of my mouth :-D But unfortunately for him, he is still on the show’s payroll, and we are not…so this is probably the best we’re going to get out of him, with regards to how derp-y the show has gotten.  But alas, I felt vindicated nonetheless :-)

Professional Dancer LOL of the Performance Show: Gleb, for “You look like a dancer when you don’t move.”

Heidi: Surely I wasn’t the only one who not only LOLed at that one, but also developed a new appreciation for the newest pretty face on this show. :-)

Courtney: It actually sounded a lot like something Maks would have said to Kirstie…only Gleb sounded so much more melodic when he said it :-P

Heidi: You know, they say tone is everything. :-) Read more..

April 7, 2013 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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 16, Week 4 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

Well, it may be personal stories week (ack!) but it appears to also be “Let’s separate the wheat from the chaff” week as well. :-) Of the top four (Zen, Kellie, Aly and Jacoby), Jacoby is the only one who could be in trouble. We’ll see, but I have a feeling he’ll surprise us. I also worry a bit about Kellie missing a day and a half of rehearsal, but Derek seems pretty Zen about it….pardon the pun. :-) Zendaya is definitely the one with the biggest advantage – seems to me that Samba would be right in her wheelhouse. I could be wrong. Lisa and Cha Cha sounds like trouble, as does DL and Foxtrot. Andy…I’m praying for him. Ingo and Sean will probably be “fine”. I keep forgetting they are on the show, which is not a good sign.

I’ve taken a stab at putting them in the order that I would have them dance. Let’s see if I can channel TPTB this week. I started off pretty good last week and then it all went in the toilet. :-)

ETA: Only off by one on DL and Cheryl. :-)

ETA2: If sheery is right about Karina’s page, then I was right on with that one. :-)

ETA3: Sean dancing first, eh?? That’s a pretty good spot for him. I was off by three spots. But he got a good spot versus the crap spot I had him in.

ETA4: My record isn’t so good this week…so far. :-)

ETA5: Well, I wasn’t far off on Victor, but they are going with the DRAMA of Lisa fainting a lot harder than I expected them to – especially since I don’t see her story as compelling or her cha cha as likely to be good. Interesting. I moved Zendaya to 4th, but frankly I can’t imagine they’d put her in that crappy of a spot – unless of course her twitter wins the previous two weeks have solidified her standing. But still. Then again, I can’t imagine any of the remaining dancers except Ingo in the 4th spot.

Vogue here with ETA6: Mark and Aly will be dancing to “Titanium” tonight which you can read about here. Oh man, I love this song. She’s got a good one. Read more..
