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. :-)

DWTS Season 9 Week 7 Media

People Online -Tuesday’s Dancing: What You Didn’t See. Everyone give me an “awwww”. :-)

Pass the Luck: Before Aaron Carter performed the jive on Tuesday night’s dance-off, Kelly Osbourne ran onto the dance floor, gave him a hug and a good luck charm. “I said, ‘Wear my lucky bracelet.’ I wear my lucky bracelet every week,” she said, pointing to her beaded bracelet. “[My fiancé] Luke [Worrall] made it for me.”

Flip Flop: Mark Dacascos, host of Iron Chef America, says it was a great experience working with his dance partner Lacey Schwimmer on her show. He hopes she will return the favor. “It’s in the works,” says Dacascos about the possibility of Schwimmer being a guest judge. “I just don’t want anything disgusting,” Schwimmer joked, “like animal organs that shouldn’t be taken out of an animal. I would love chocolate or the secret ingredient is sugar!”

ET on Mark and Michael leaving:Michael/Anna and Mark/Lacey on GMA!

Awwww…I love Michael Irvin. Mark and Michael on Radar Online.

Access Hollywood – Mark and Lacey, Michael and Anna, et al.

Mark Dacascos Sent Home on DWTS

I was really sad to see Mark leave on this note with his partner being out and him not on top of his game but that’s the game I guess…Let’s take a look at some of his best dances, costumes, and let’s see what the twitter world is saying to him :)

BEST DANCE
Jitterbug:  I think you’d have to be crazy not to count this as Mark’s best dance!  I enjoyed this dance because Mark really let his personality come out which made his dancing that much better :)

Paso Doble: This wasn’t Mark’s best technical dance but the two of them here are brilliant!

BEST COSTUMES
Cha-Cha-Cha: This was my favorite costume throughout the seven weeks! It was very him and in his element :)
DWTS

 

TWITTER WORLD
Edyta (@Edyta_Sliwinska)
I’m very sorry for Mark. He is one of the nicest people I’ve met, with so much potential! I’m sorry Anna, you did everything possible.

Lacey (@LaceySchwimmer)
All is good everyone, thanks to those who voted and supported us! GMA in the am then a flight to nyc for the VIEW. How am I gunna get better

DWTS Week 7 Edition: THE GOOD, THE BAD, and THE INCREDIBLY HOT!

I found this week very mundane….nothing really got me going except for looking into Derek’s dream scene :)  I enjoyed some of the costumes that the celebs got to design…Karina looked HOT, Anna D. looked STUNNING, and Kelly as always, so ADORABLE :)  I thought Kym’s dress was all over the place, mya’s dress didn’t have enough sparkle to it, and Joanna’s had to much fabric….did I really just say that!  I thought her nude fabric was to much and wasn’t needed to the extent that it was used.  Now to the good, the bad, and the incredibly hot!

THE GOOD
I chose Aaron this week for the good routine because he’s really starting to control himself and when it does he’s just amazing to watch! I could without all the ‘bad ass’ stuff at the end and the tongue sticking out at times but it’s the performance factor for him!

THE BAD
It is getting harder every week to put someone in this position but I’m going to have to go with Mark this week. I’m putting Mark here because I felt like his dance was ALL OVER THE PLACE! You could tell that he so badly wanted to do good for Lacey and to keep up his scores from the week before. However, with everything that happened…it just wasn’t his week :(

THE INCREDIBLY HOT
JOANNA!!!!!!! Is it any surprise :) This dance was so amazing and she did it beautifully! I can’t wait until she get’s the first 30 of the season…if she gets all the stumbles worked out!

DWTS 9 – Mark Dacascos and Lacey Schwimmer on Bonnie Hunt

I got several talk shows over the last few days that I’m just now getting around to posting. I have a question – how do the DWTS PR handlers get people on these talk shows? It’s very staggered and I can’t figure out the pattern. We’ve not seen Mark D nor Mya until THIS week. We’ve not seen Donny, Joanna, Louie, Michael Irvin or Natalie (until her exit shows) AT ALL. But Aaron’s been on Bonnie and Ellen. Melissa Joan Hart was on a couple shows…it’s very strange. The only thing I can think of is that Aaron and MJH (and Donny but he’s got Vegas) had the most pre-season name recognition. But, last season Lil’ Kim and Derek didn’t show up on Ellen until around this time and she had notoriety going in. It’s just weird.

Back to Bonnie Hunt. Lacey, let Mark talk, would you? Although I did like the story about Donny Osmond. :-)

Miscellaneous Media – DWTS 9, Week 5

We have a little bit of everything tonight, and this most likely won’t be the last of it. :-) Had computer “issues” last night, otherwise I would have had it up sooner.

Radar Online Interview with Jermaine Jackson. Cameos by Mark, Derek, Mya, Chelsie

Radar OnLine interview with Natalie Coughlin and Alec Mazo. I had to laugh at her “crappy scores” comment – pretty much on target with her intent there. :-)

Next, Entertainment Tonight with Aaron and Jermaine Jackson and a little bit of Natalie Coughlin.

Extra with Jermaine, Aaron and Karina:

Kelly and Louis on Chelsea Lately – HERE is an example of chemistry. :-) I just love these two.

E! News from Tuesday. Poor Natalie. Lacey, when someone has to say “I’m being for real” – well, it’s a bad sign. And, finally, THIS is a Donny Osmond I can like.

Natalie Coughlin Sent Home on DWTS

John gave me a brilliant idea to do a tribute to the star that has been sent home so here we go with Natalie in Week 5…

Her best dance

Her hottest costume(s)

Not many people can pull off orange but Natalie shined in this crazy, fun Latin outfit!  And you can totally tell that her and Alec are having such a blast with the dance :)

I wasn’t sure about this costume when I first saw it but it really does her justice!  I love that it complemented the song they danced to but I also like that she representing the USA just like she did in swimming.  The only thing that I hated about this outfit was Alec’s ensemble!  The two just don’t go together but Natalie looks GORGEOUS!

I was hoping for a better picture of her ‘ice princess’ costume but this is all I could find :(  I absolutely loved this dress on her.  She looked so elegant and beautiful and, again, you can tell that she and Alec are enjoying their dance together.

I was really sad to see Natalie go and according to some twitter accounts…others were just as sad:

From Johnathon Roberts (@JonatRoberts)
@NatalieCoughlin You were so awesome all thru the show. Great technique, flexibility, performance-you had it all, we think you are great!!!

@NatalieCoughlin u were great & did NOT deserve 2 go. I’m so bummed, Anna & I were so enjoying watching u dance-u r awesome

From Carrie Ann (@carrieanninaba)
Very sad as well about Natalie and Alec. Doesn’t seem right. This year is very interesting….

From Mark Dacascos (@mark_dacascos)
Thank you for keeping us on another week. Really sad to see Natalie leave — one of the most charming, kind, classy women I’ve ever met.

From Dmitry Chaplin (@dmitry_ch)
@NatalieCoughlin u were AMAZING and I am really sad to see you go… Keep on shining, you are great!

From Kelly Osbourne (@MissKellyO)
@NatalieCoughlin I just wanted to let you know how amazing its been getting to know you. You are the coolest girl i’ve met in a long time!

DWTS 9 Week 2 – The Last of the Media

Aaron and Karina have found a rather successful way to knock out the Donny publicity machine. I don’t know whether to be amused or disturbed. :-) I have to say that I agree with those who have been saying there are too many couples such that it’s hard to focus – and it’s just not exciting. I’m getting a tad bored. I mean, no ones even talking about dancing. They’re talking about injuries (Lacey, Debi and Tom’s), supposed romances – Aaron and Chelsie or Aaron and Karina?? Right. Showmance for publicity? Beats me. :::yawn:::

Anyway, first up is EXTRA on Debi’s and Tom’s injuries, and Carrie Ann Innaba’s predictions for the season.

I totally agree with Samantha’s face when asked about Jon Gosslin on DWTS. Are you KIDDING ME??? Is this what we’re talking about? Watch this video to see Derek’s reaction to a Jon Gosslin question – hilarious. His response is as it should be. The video below is from the Insider – Sam Cam makes an appearance. Melissa – glorifying bad behavior?? Do you know how many of your costars have arrest records?? Like, SEVEN. LOL. Like I said in a previous post – stop talking, your foot keeps going into your mouth. :-)

Extra again – Kelly Osbourne was pretty upset after her last dance. Steve O as special correspondent.

Mark Dacascos and his wife talk to EXTRA:

Selena Gomez on DWTS, and Kathy gets the boot. Chelsie “rejects” Aaron Carter. Shawn Johnson is the Special Correspondent for E! News:

More DWTS Season 9 Media from Week 2

More in the endless series of interviews, etc. from Week 2! TV Guide Online is up first:

Okay, this is super cool – but then, I’m a total geek. How they did the Season 2 Promo:

Extra Behind the Scenes:

AOL – ‘Dancing’ Backstage Report. Excerpt:

Dmitry, did having a high score make going into the elimination show easier?
Dmitry: Oh, yes! It does put more pressure on you for [next week].

Mya, how did it feel to do the encore dance on the results show?
Mya: It felt great. I didn’t go out [Monday night] because I found out I was doing the encore dance. Any night I do a great job I want to celebrate.

Mya and Dmitry, how did it feel to get a score of 27?
Mya: It feels great. I thought we did a wonderful job. I didn’t think we messed up anywhere. I’m going to keep practicing every day. It feels great to have gotten the first “9″ of the season.
Dmitry: We’re tied with Karina and Aaron, so that’s amazing to be one of two couples [at the top].

Oy veh. It would be a good idea to stop talking. :-)

Mark and Melissa, it didn’t make sense that they said we were the most improved and then got the same score as you did the first week.
Melissa: Mark has the biggest fans in the ballroom. They [saved] us.
Mark: I don’t care what they give me. I care what they give [Melissa].
Melissa: He’s my night in sparkling armor.
Mark: Polka dot armor.

Do you feel the judges compliments matched the score they gave you?
Melissa: They contradicted themselves. They all said “most improved,” but then they gave us the same score [we got last week.]
Mark: I was happy with Carrie Ann. It was nice to see her being encouraging. Her score was fair.

LOL – Love Debi.

Debi, how’s your neck feeling?
Debi: Much, much better. It was a torn muscle …
Maks: Not true. Her neck is the same. The thing that changed was thinking that she was going to find — God forbid — a cancerous lump. The doctor told her it’s a “severe muscle tear with blood in it,” blah, blah, blah. She asked, “Is it cancerous?” He said, “No.” She said, “OK, I don’t have time for this. I have to go back to rehearsal.”
Debi: It will heal.

Debi, why did you hit Maks?
Debi: He asked me to.
Maks: What people don’t know is that it was a training exercise.

A large part of me hopes Derek is not kidding – there isn’t enough excitement this season. :-)

Derek and Joanna, how’d you feel waiting to hear your name be called safe?
Joanna: Relieved, relieved, relieved!
Derek: We were first last week. The scores were so close. Even I was nervous!
Joanna: [Derek] was like, “Whatever happens, happens.” But I was like, “I want to stay!”

Derek, the show needs a scandal this season …
Derek: (Joking) Sure … I’m working on one right now.

ABC Interview Videos

Courtesy of  TV Grapevine.  These are the same videos (with bio page)  I uploaded the other day for Macy et al, but different couples. I believe they are in the process of uploading all of them. I’ve included a few, below. The TV Grapevine site is kinda hard to figure out (for me anyway) so this link takes you to Natalie, but the others are listed on the left hand side. This LINK takes you to the list of celebs they have bios for so far – which doesn’t seem to match the video list, even though the videos are also embedded there. Make sense? Yeah, me either. :-)

ETA: I almost forgot to blow my own horn. :-) I was correct – the male pros are doing a pro dance on Monday night, the female pros a pro dance on Tuesday night – the reverse of when they dance with their partners. This is per Louis Van Amstel.  Should be very interesting. ;-)

Natalie and Alec

Mark And Lacey

Ashley and Edyta

Maybe it’s just me, but Ashley and Natalie seem kinda…boring? Maybe it’s Alec and Edyta? I dunno something seems strange there. Or maybe everyone suffers in comparison to Mark Dacascos and Lacey. :-)
