Dancing With Who?

I waited with breathless anticipation.  I cheated and went online I found out who was going to be on this season.  My first reaction was less than enthusiastic.  It also may have been something along the lines of, "Who ARE these people!?"  Well let's have a look at their new line up shall we...

Carson Kressely:  Emmy winning television star, celebrity stylist, author and fashion designer.  Okay...he's actually a star.  Keep.  He's paired with Anna Trebunskaya.  They will be the best dressed on the floor.

Chynna Phillips:  Singer/Song writer and "pop princess" another star.  She is paired with Tony Dovolani.  He treats all his stars well.

David Arquette:  actor, writer, and producer...oh yeah and he was married to Courtney Cox.  He's a star!!!  He will be dancing with Kym Johnson.  These two will be fun together.

Elisabetta Canalis:  Super Model: Italy.  She is gorgeous.  She is famous...in Italy.  So...is she a star?  I think the verdict is out on that one. Not sure I like her attitude.  She comes across as, "You may admire me from afar."  She is paired with Val Chmerkovskiy.  As in Maks' brother. If he is anything like his brother.  He could give her a run for her money.

Hope Solo:  Soccer superstar.  Well I don't follow sports, but it says she is a super star so there you go.  Her partner.  Maks.  I know nothing about her, but I know enough about him.  And it is never boring.

J.R. Martinez  Soaps real life hero.  " J.R. Martinez is an Iraq war veteran, motivational speaker and actor on ABC's All My Children. In April 2003, at 19 years old, he was serving as a Humvee driver for the U.S. Army in Iraq when his left front tire hit a landmine. He suffered smoke inhalation and severe burns to more than 40 percent of his body."  I have seen little blurbs with him and he has already won my vote.  He is real, and really a star.  I look forward to seeing him on the floor.  He is paired with Karina Smirnoff.

Kristin Cavallari "reality's sweetheart."  While I am tired of reality people being on this show, I will say she has been on a variety of shows such as CSI and The Middle.  Still I have no clue who she is...but she is working on that stardom thing.  She is paired with:  Mark Ballas.  He will be crushing on her.

  

Nancy Grace:  The Court room Queen.  No clue who this is.  But apparently she is controversial.  And will make Len cry.  I would like to see this.  Seeing her in the blurbs makes me think she will be more entertaining than anything else.  Her partner: new comer, Tristan Macmanus.


Rikki Lake:  I know her!  Well I don't know her.  But I know who she is.  And that lucky dog gets Derek!  She's in it to win it she says.  Go for it Rikki.  And with Derek on your side, you have a great chance!!!


Rob Kardashian.  Rob...you are not a star.  You are known because of a reality TV show.  Doesn't count.  But you get to be on DWTS.  And you get to dance with Cheryl Burke!!  I hope you understand and truly appreciate how good you have it right now!

 

Ron Artest  I want you to know that is called Dancing with the Stars not...The Ron Artest show!!  I already don't like the basketball player.  On the night of the press conference he came on stage and took off his shirt.  BARF!   He is paired with Petra Murgatroyd another new comer.


Chaz Bono.  Chaz, you are famous because you have famous parents.  You made a documentary about your change.  Does that make you a star?  Maybe.  I digress.  Cher has my vote as a mother who showed that you love your child no matter what.  Chaz is there to dance.  Okay Chaz, bring it, bring your dance but not your agenda.  Your partner is the best and most suitable for you:  Lacey Schwimmer.

So could I do any better at casting a line up of stars for my beloved show? Tune in on Wednesday to find out!!!

Come by tomorrow for The Status Quote for FB and Twitter updates from your friends and family and link up with me and Emmy.

Love your commentary but I think this show has seen it's best seasons - and I don't even really watch. Where's Gene Kelly when you need him?

Emmy said...

Yea, no one I am the least interested in and some that just don't rub me well. Totally forgot to plug the status quote! Doh- will have to do so on Twitter.

Maks AND Val --should be interesting! And Chaz--I applaud the bravery!

Nicole said...

I have a fear that Chaz is there for the wrong reasons! I hate when they bring controversial people like that on.... but maybe I'm close minded.

MiMi said...

Okay. You will think I'm a jerk...but when I saw that picture of Chaz and realized who it was...it made my stomach hurt.
