Candace Cameron Bure reviewed Dancing With The Stars last night. She also predicts who she thinks will go home. She thinks it might be Michael Waltrip.
Wowza, what a night last night on Dancing With The Stars!!!! I was blown away by either the creativity and skill of the dancing or the heart and soul put into it. So, let’s get to some media and interviews. First of all, don’t miss seeing some fabulous photos of the cast and show at ABC7. Afterwards, below is a recap and new interviews with ABC7, Access Hollywood, and Afterbuzz TV. Note: It’s “Movie Night” next week and from these interviews, we learn that Witney and Alfonso have a Fox Trot (or do they have a V. Waltz?). Mark and Sadie have a Viennese Waltz. Peta and Tommy have an Argentine Tango. For more dance spoilers see Heidi’s Discussion post and Pure Derek Hough.
ETA: Cheryl and Antonio have a Fox Trot next week.
Well, lookie here…for one week, at least, Courtney and I are in a “mood”. Duck and cover, and sensitive readers beware – we spare almost no one, most of the time.
Why I want to do dancing with the stars: What the Women were REALLY Saying:
Janel: Cuz I’m Hawaiian and mama needs a showmance.
Sadie: They won’t let me dance in Louisiana and religious girls don’t suck…at dancing.
Lolo: They let me dance but I sucked real bad. And that gave me a sad.
Lea: I danced great but ballet man said I was short and plain. Suck it, Misha.
Bethany: People were mean to me and now they can suck it.
Betsy: I can do the splits better then any of these young chicks; in my head I’m a Rockette.
Why I want to do dancing with the stars: What the Men were REALLY Saying:
Alfonso: Because there’s more glitter than on the biggest loser.
Tommy: The wife is more impressed by amazing dance moves than smoke clouds from the weed.
Tavis: I’m not serious! Blah blah blah gravitas blah blah blah gravitas blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah dammit. :::zzzzz:::
Antonio: I wanted to revive my career for years, and this is just the show to do it.
Jonathan: I miss my dad.
Randy: Fighters are people too. Agree with me or I kill you.
Michael: Bill Engvall got to dance with hot chicks. I can dance with hot chicks too. Read more..

Carrie Ann Inaba has written a new blog at Parade. She rates her favorite couples on Dancing With The Stars so far in the “Feel Good” and “Sexy, Sexy” categories. So far, at the top of those lists are Alfonso Ribiero and Randy Couture. Lots more at Parade including her thoughts on Julianne Hough and pictures of her fur babies.
Speaking of her fur babies, she also recently founded the Carrie Ann Inaba Animal Project (CAIAP, caiap.org) to help cats and dogs in several different ways. “I have always wanted to build a sanctuary to give animals a safe place to live out their lives,” she explains. “Since I was a young child, this has been the dream. Starting CAIAP is all about working towards that. It will take a lot of financial support to get there, but I have faith we will.” To read an article about it, see Animal Wellness Magazine.
