DWTS Season 16, Week 2 – The Cheesecake Awards!!

Title is kind of a lie – there’s some week 1 stuff in here too. :-)  As I usually do at the start of each season, it’s time for me/us to warn you. These awards are sometimes humorous, tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic and sometimes they’re b*#chy and sometimes they’re just weird. My point is, if you are overly sensitive about comments made about your favorite, you best not whine. You’ve been warned and NO ONE is immune.

On with the show…Not much in week 1 but these first two awards:

Tom Bergeron Line O’ the Night, Week 1: “Victor’s story is not that unique…we get most of our cast when their judgement is impaired.” Honorable Mention: “I’ve been watching Giggy all day and I think he’s hammered!”

Heidi: HEY!! He shouldn’t say stuff like that in front of Andy! Heh. Anyway, good ole Tom. He was on a roll for night one!! I have to agree about Giggy. Is that dog of an advanced age?? Cuz he’s either hammered or very sleepy all the time. :-)

Courtney: ZOMG, that’s sooooo offensive…it very well might send Andy scrambling to the closest bar! Seriously, the way some people are fancying themselves Dr. Drew and getting all up in arms on Andy’s behalf is just nauseating.  But I digress….yeah, Tom’s pretty on the money, because with all the trickery going on at DWTS these days, one would have to be under the influence of some substance in order to agree to do it.  As for Giggy – Giggy’s pretty sedate most of the time on RHOBH too, so I don’t think it’s anything new…that pooch is just so used to getting carried everywhere and sitting on everyone’s laps that he doesn’t really need energy :-P Read more..

Dancing with the Stars Season 16, Week 3 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

The dreaded Prom Night. Almost a guarantee of SUPER CHEESE and probable stupidity. Complete with Prom King and Queen – which translates to another win for Zendaya, since it’s apparently based on Twitter votes. I guess all we can hope for is that it lulls her fans into not voting. Because nothing pisses me off more than pimpage. Here’s what ABC.com has to say:

You can help select the King and Queen of the night by using Twitter. Here’s how:

Just Tweet hash tag “prom” followed by the first name of the male star or female star of your choice. Don’t forget to select your favorite King and Queen. Twitter selection for our King and Queen will be open until Tuesday morning at 11 AM ET/8 AM PT. The hashtag should read #prom and then the first name of the celebrity. For example #promandy #promwynonna

The male and female Stars who each receive the most number of tweets will be named Prom King and Queen for the night and each be awarded two extra points for the night.

DWTS TPTB: “Yeah…our main demo for DWTS is older women….and they suck, so lets try to get more young ‘uns to watch by having them vote on twitter for Prom Queen and King. Okay, so it didn’t really work so well last week as we still got hammered by The Voice, but hey! It could work…eventually. Yeah, we know it means that Zendaya will win everything, cuz old ladies don’t tweet, and that could skew the voting…but we don’t actually CARE about that. So what if we alienate the old ladies who watch our show…we’re just sure the key demo will come to us…eventually. And they’re way more important.”

:::rolls eyes::: I’m getting sick of this crap and it’s only week 3. Seriously – two extra points? What stupid gimmick are they going to come up with next week?? Are they really this desperate??

Clearly, the answer is yes.

ETA: What kind of prom has a couple dancing to “Sex Machine”??  I’m also GUESSING that Ingo is dancing to Queen, since that sounds like a Paso song to me. Anyway, I’ve put the dances in the order that I think they’ll be dance

ETA2: Nailed it on Lisa and gleb :-)

ETA3: Two for two!!:-)

ETA4: Off by one spot for DL and Cheryl. All good rolls come to an end. :-)

ETA5: Well, I was doing so well with my predictions. Off on Victor by 2 sports. Oh well. :-)

ETA6: Ugh. Waste of a perfectly good “pimp” spot…although I wager it’s as close to the original meaning as it’s ever going to get. :-) Maybe the “family” needs some help, eh?

ETA7: Well, I get home late from work and see there is some confusion as to who is going last. Since Zendaya said “last” and Peta said 11th, I’m betting they shuffled the order based on the dress rehearsal and Zendaya’s order is current. Who knows?? Kellie is going at the top of the hour, which is good. Zendaya going last makes more sense than Sean.

This is also from ABC.com:

Here are some the songs you’ll hear Monday night – were any of them played at your prom?

“Do You Think I’m Sexy” – by Rod Stewart
“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins
“Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen
“Y.M.C.A” by the Village People

Am I correct in thinking that, with the only Jive on the roster, Kellie and Derek have Footloose?? Derek should be a little familiar with that particular song. :-)

New Twist To The Las Vegas Odds For DWTS 16 Week 3 – What do you think?

“I like to be against the odds.” ~Baseball great Barry Bonds on beating the odds

Sports Bovada has posted their new set of odds for Dancing With The Stars Season 16 Week 3. Sometimes I wonder if they even watch the show as they still have Dorothy Hamill listed and at 7/1 odds to win. 8O After seeing such an amazing dance from Derek and Kellie Pickler last week, I’m shocked they have Kellie placed at 4th too. Crazy and in no way should Aly be placed at 3rd. I also don’t think Lisa should not be in last place (should’t that go to D.L.?). Andy Dick’s odds should have risen and not lowered too. Take a look and see what you think….

Zendaya Coleman 5/2
Jacoby Jones 4/1
Aly Raisman 9/2
Kellie Pickler 5/1
Dorothy Hamill 7/1
Ingo Rademacher 16/1
Sean Lowe 16/1
Andy Dick 75/1
D.L. Hughley 75/1
Victor Ortiz 75/1
Wynonna Judd 75/1
Lisa Vanderpump 100/1

DWTS Behind The Scenes With Andy Dick: “There must be chaos in the mind to be a great dancer”

Above are more fun videos from Rumorfix and Andy Dick with some shots behind the scenes from Monday. Derek and Jacoby are in the first video. He interviews Wynonna in the second video.

In other things with Andy, he talks with XFinity about his “Cinderella” story, but, I love this part about Sharna and why she’s the perfect partner for him. He also talks of this week’s Queen of Hearts/MadHatter theme….

You did such a bizarre and wonderful routine tonight. Can you describe it?
AD: Sharna’s the one who came up with Queen of Hearts/Mad Hatter [theme]. I love it! So I was very excited that I was going to get to weird it out [and] act a little and it’s jazz so we were allowed to be a little more kooky weird and creepy and strange too. She let me do it. She was the one that came up with [the move with] my head between her legs. It was a blast.

How do you two relate as partners?
AD: I got a text from somebody from [philosopher] Friedrich Nietzsche. I’m paraphrasing, but I’m not kidding: “There must be chaos in the mind to be a great dancer.” And we both have that. We are so all over the place and I’m going to put words in her mouth. I think what she likes about dancing is all that stuff that all that stuff that’s going on in her brain. She can harness that and it comes out in the dance and you can see the energy. I can feel it! I’m right next to her. It’s sometimes frightening but it’s amazing.

And it’s amazing for us too, Andy and Sharna!! KEEP IT UP!! More at XFinity!!

DWTS16 Week 2 Media After The Elimination, More Dances Revealed For Week 3!

Last night after the results show, some of the our couples from Dancing With The Stars were interviewed by George Pennacchio of On The Red Carpet. He asks them straight up about week 3….

First up, Andy and Sharna!! They have the Cha Cha for week 3!! Andy said Sharna introduced him to it a little in the beginning and he had a hard time with it. Sharna says they have a difficult week and more hours of practicing ahead, but, (and here’s the fun part and key for him in my opinion), she’s got another fun character for Andy to play. It won’t be your average prom story. It will be about a boy’s fantasy of the ideal woman. Andy also talks of the bond he formed with Dorothy and was sad to see her go.

Gleb and Lisa!! George didn’t get much out of these two. Lisa talks of how hard it was to see Dorothy leave last night. Gleb mentions they may need more props and special effects and that we will have to wait until next week to see what they do.

D.L. hopes to improve again for Week 3 and to have more fun! His schedule has been exhausting, but, he is ready and excited to still dance and thankful to still be on the show. He has nothing, but, good things to say about Dorothy. He was proud of her.

Sean and Peta have a Cha Cha next week! Peta says they will be bringing the crazy and fun and refined steps. Sean’s schedule is tight, but, they work around it.

Victor and Lindsay hope to step it up and work even harder! George reminds them they can still do it like Kelly Monaco did. Lindsay puts her foot down and won’t let Victor be negative. Read more..

PureDWTS Season 16 Dorothy Hamill And Tristan MacManus Early Departure Media

I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house last night on Dancing With The Stars when Dorothy Hamill announced she had to step out because of her injury!! She mentioned that maybe she could come back in the future? I wonder if TPTB could explore this possibility? What a beautiful lady and soul. Just like in the 70′s on the ice rink, Dorothy swooped into the dance floor to touch our hearts and, what’s more, with class, elegance, grace, and charm. Thank you Dorothy Hamill!! You will always be an Ice Princess as well as a Dance Princess too in so many of our eyes!!! Below is she and Tristan with On The Red Carpet, Access Hollywood, and ET Online after the show last night talking more on her departure. The cast has a few things to say about Dorothy and Tristan in the ET Online video as well. Stay tuned. If there is more on these two (Good Morning America?), we will be sure to add it to this post…

UPDATE: Dorothy and Tristan weren’t on GMA this morning, but, Victor, Lindsay, Gleb, and Lisa weigh in on her departure. You can watch it HERE.

DWTS Season 16, Week 2 – Who Got the Boot? (SPOILERS)

Oh man, that was SO sad. First time I cried at an elimination. Dang.

For those of you who haven’t seen the show but are here getting spoiled, Dorothy removed herself at the last minute on the advice of doctors. She could do permanent damage to herself if she kept on.

The final two came down to Lisa and Victor – we did NOT find out who the eliminee was going to be. Interesting that they kept Andy down there till the last minute – me thinks they want to keep him around. Also interesting were the ones called safe first – Ingo, Sean and Wynonna.

How did we do??

Heidi: Said D.L. was going home with Lisa as an alternate and Victor as a second alternate.

Courtney: She had D.L. with Victor second to last and Lisa third to last.

Vogue-y: Also had D.L. with Wynonna next and Dorothy  third.

Winner: No idea. Either me or Courtney, although Vogue was in there with Dorothy.
