So, how is everyone doing today? I hope well. Just a few media things to share with you. First up, don’t forget Cheryl and Derek will be performing on “Live With Regis and Kelly” this week at the Wynn in Las Vegas on TUESDAY!! Check your local TV affiliates for the exact time of the show. Cheryl posted this on twitter last night. Sounds like they are having fun while waiting.

Here is an interview I missed posting before the show of Kyle and his brother on PopstopTV. I thought it was interesting to note about what they said on Bristol and the media and if they have been too mean to her this season. Is the media mean to everyone or did Bristol have it coming?

When you have politics involved, it’s bound to get dicey at times in my opinion. Hopefully, we won’t have to endure politicals again with the show. But, I’ve ran into several things out there with a mention on Christine O’Donnell being on the show next Season. From the NY Daily.

Thought you saw the last of Christine O’Donnell when she lost in the midterm elections? Think again.

The much-mocked Tea Party darling who was trounced in her bid for the Delaware Senate earlier this month is rumored to be under consideration for a spot on the next season of “Dancing with the Stars,” thanks to some behind-the-scenes help from Sarah Palin.

O’Donnell is a fan of the show, and tweeted her support for Bristol on Monday.

“I just voted for Bristol on DWTS!” she wrote, encouraging others to vote. “She’s enduring a lot & should be proud. It’s shameful the way she is being attacked.”

But even if Mama Palin wants to bring O’Donnell back into the spotlight, does anyone else think it would be a good fit?

ABC does, apparently.

“Christine is not a bad idea at all,” a network executive told Shuter. “After Kate Gosselin and Cloris Leachman, O’Donnell would fit right in. She certainly would be so controversial that the amount of press attention and buzz the show would get would be huge. Plus, you know they would make her dance in a witch’s hat with a broomstick.”

Fox News reports that O’Donnell would get at least $200,000 to appear on the show.

:o Please I hope they won’t go there! lol

So, who would you like to see for new contestants on the show next Season? I’m still wishing for Johnny Weir. I’d also like to see them approach David Cassidy, Susan Dey, or Shirley Jones.

Corky Ballas also had a few things to say on Bristol and the the results this week. Here is take from Radar On-line.

“Comparing her (Bristol) to Jennifer Grey was like a Volkswagen to Rolls Royce.”

“Everyone expected Jennifer to win,” he added, “Nobody puts baby in the corner; come on! She danced in Dirty Dancing. It would have been a joke if she didn’t win.”

Corky has trained many of Dancing with the Stars’ professionals including Karina Smirnoff, Julianne Hough, Derek Hough and Tony Dovolan.

This season, he partnered with Florence Henderson until she was eliminated in week five of the competition.

“No one was mad that Bristol lost,” Corky told RadarOnline.com. “At the end of the day, this is a TV show. People just had way too much invested in the show.”

While Corky took the dance floor on the season finale, he also found time to speak with Bristol’s mom, the former Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, during a backstage catch-up.

“I spoke with Sara and congratulated her on how well Bristol did,” Corky said.

“I told Sara that Bristol put on a brave face throughout this entire ordeal. Not only does the show kick your butt — with the dancing and training — Bristol had to deal with a lot of other stuff.”

“People called her names, saying she’s fat and calling her mother stupid.

“For that young woman to go out there like that and perform her butt off, that takes tenacity and thick skin. I tip my hat to Bristol.”

Ok, that is all for you for now. Have a great Sunday Everyone!!xx ;)
