Dancing with the Stars Season 18, Week 8 – Dancing by the Numbers!

I kinda have to laugh. Why? Well, besides the large number of people (and websites) who thought that the picture Derek posted of a baby doing a push up was actually him…there were just so many people freaking out over Meryl’s score this week. Sheer panic. Lots of hysteria and a few requests for me to do my numbers post early.  Why is this funny? Well, because some of these same people who are now a tad panicked are the same ones who said, when I was complaining about Meryl being propped up, “hey, it’s just a silly dance show.”  LOL. So much for the “silly dance show.”  I’ll throw it back to you – It’s just a silly dance show. It’s not world peace.  And before you get all hoity toity and claim I’m only saying that because Amy is at the top of the leader board, I ask you to please point to where I ever expected her to win, prayed for her to win…hell, point to any post in the last two years or more where I got my knickers in a twist because Derek’s partner might not win.  I’m like Derek these days – it’s not about winning any more. And Amy has already won. She won the first time she danced on prosthetics in front of millions of people. That is a massive victory, along with a massive inspiration. Read more..

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. :-)

How about some new photos of Karina Smirnoff (Jim? :) )? This past week, she attended the 3rd annual Hank Baskett Classic (seen above) that took place at the Trump National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. The event raised funds for Griffin Gives, Hank’s charity, which supports the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. Other stars that were attendance included Bruce and Brody Jenner, Hank Baskett, Jr, Sr and the III, Ryan Merriman, Scheana Marie, Mike Shay and professional athletes like Jermaine, Dye and David Justice. More photos of this event can be found at Wire Images, Getty Images, and Drop Box.

Also, be sure to check out Karina’s instagram as yesterday she also helped with a dance movement therapy for www.dreasdream.org. The funds provided were divided between CHLA and Mattel children’s hospital. Sasha Farber and Val Chmerkovskiy also helped with the movement.

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.
