DWTS Season 13, Week 5 and 6 – The Cheesecake Awards

Well, Courtney and I are suffering from a bit of a mid-season “blah” – all my mind is really capable of right now is “Derek pretty…Derek pretty…” So, this version of the cheesecake is for both weeks 5 and 6, and it’s either going to be extremely bitchy or short and mean. :-) Hard to tell. It’s perception, really. :-)

Week 5

Tom Bergeron’s WTF Moment of the Night: When Brooke says “A Hush has fallen over the Ballroom” yet there is actually a pretty noticeable booing and hissing from the audience.

Heidi: Poor Tom, he just couldn’t help himself, he had to say something. :-) His response was pretty funny: “Sounds like a pretty angry ‘hush’ to me.” Geez, Brooke? Really? A hush? Maybe you meant hiss?? Here’s a piece of advice – don’t ad lib.

Courtney: Someone call tech support, stat – the Brookebot 2.0 has a glitch in its matrix. Seriously, she’s like Tickle Me Elmo these days – only says a handful of phrases, and it’s only cute once or twice before it gets terribly annoying.

The Award for Biggest WTF of the Results Show: The Choir

Heidi: Um, really?? A choir? In the gowns and everything?? And it wasn’t a little choir, there was a whole dang bunch of them. I thought for a moment I was watching the finale of American Idol. I will say, the choir stayed in sync better than the troupe dancers did. I have to say that the choir coming out (and yes, I get the Madonna connection) was the first time in a long time that I sat there going “what the f*#k are they doing?” I was momentarily stumped. Confused. Befuddled.

Courtney: Confuzzled :-P I sure hope they didn’t break the bank when they booked the choir – if I were them, I’d be funneling more money into get a troupe that CAN ACTUALLY DANCE IN SYNCH than into ridiculous, over-the-top props. Maybe this is why they skimped on the fire with the extension cord a few weeks ago – had to pinch pennies to afford the choir. 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. :-)

Chaz Bono Lands New Reality Special Which Will Include DWTS Footage!

Good news for Chaz Bono!! He may have been voted off Dancing With the Stars this week, but it’s only the beginning for him! He’ll soon be returning to TV with his own reality TV special called “Being Chaz”. Below are some details from Entertainment Gather. Note how the new special will include Dancing With The Stars footage.

Being Chaz will be a follow-up to his Emmy nominated special Becoming Chaz. It will look at Chaz’s life since transitioning from a woman to a man, and will include DWTS rehearsals and the controversy that his appearance as a contestant on the show created.

Fans will have to wait until late November–November 27th to be exact, to watch Being Chaz on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). That gives Chaz Bono a brief break from the media spotlight before allowing people to witness more of his personal and behind-the-scenes challenges.

Hopefully the special won’t only concentrate on the many challenges that Chaz Bono has faced and will likely continue to face, but will also highlight the joys he has experienced since transitioning to manhood. His example could certainly be enlightening for many young men and women who are facing similar struggles in their personal lives.

Also, if you missed Chaz and Lacey on The View today, you can see the full interview at The View’s official site. There is some fun backstage footage at the link as well. Chaz focuses on the positive as always!

For those interested, Chaz will also be Joy Behar’s guest tonight on her show on HLN!

DWTS Chaz Bono And Lacey Schwimmer Interviews After The Elimination (Videos)

And so we say good-bye to one of the most big hearted, loving, and bravest souls to ever grace Dancing With The Stars, but, what separates him from all the rest is the transgender message behind the reason he danced. Even through all the abuse he took on the show, he just worked that much harder and stood that much brighter and positive refusing to be like all the haters….a true example for us all. For that, Chaz Bono will always be a “winner” in my book!! With that said, here are some interviews he and Lacey did for Good Morning America, On The Red Carpet, Jimmy Kimmel, and Access Hollywood.

DWTS Season 13, Week 6 – The Results (SPOILERS!!)

Well, the results are in….and we’ll leave a bit of white space so no one on twitter gets spoiled.

Chaz and Lacey are leaving tonight and I can’t say I’m very happy about that. ┬áBut it is what it is.

Ordinarily after a show like last night’s I would wager that Hope gets much nicer treatment by the judges next week because they felt bad by what happened. BUT, after seeing the behind the scenes stuff tonight, I’m not at all sure that will be the case. ┬áNot a whole lot of pity floating around from the judges. We’ll see. Will they try to prove Maks wrong? Or will they hold a grudge??

Me? I was off by one and I think, if I remember correctly, Courtney got it right!!

DWTS 13, Week 6 Kristin Chenoweth – What did you think of this performance?

With all the controversy of last night’s show, some of the show is getting lost. What about this phenomenal performance by Kristin Chenoweth and the pros? Huge props to Mark Ballas for the choreography too!! Unforgettable!! Thanks to Evaine and Heidi for this special request!
