All weekend long people have wondered if the injured Alfonso Ribeiro would be able to dance on Dancing with the Stars tonight, and Carlton danced through the pain not once but twice. Not only did he do the routines, but he did them flawlessly. So if you didn’t know that he hurt his back, you wouldn’t be to tell when he was on the dance floor.
My hat is way off for him because he could’ve said I am injured and called it a day, but he didn’t. I am so proud of him and I really hope he wins the mirror ball trophy because he deserves it. Not only for tonight, but for the season as a whole.
Plus, Jimmy Kimmel will kill him if he doesn’t win, since he bet on him to take it all home. Those that the ABC late night host bet on who haven’t won in the past, were hospitalized with undisclosed accidents right after the show.
Back to Alfonso, I admit I am completely biased when it comes to him because we are from the same hometown (that he mentioned on the show tonight). But I think my bias towards him is warranted, don’t you agree!
Lea Thompson Instagrammed this photo of Artem Chigvintsev and her getting ready for Dancing with the Stars tonight, and she almost had a wardrobe malfunction before she even hit the dance floor. The Howard the Duck actress’ breast nearly fell out of her robe as she posed for the Selfie. Luckily, she had all the right moves to make that not happen. Especially since no one has seen Doc’s DeLorean which means she wouldn’t be able to go back to time to change that.
When I heard Tommy Chong was going to be on Dancing with the Stars, I thought that the Stoner was going to be out week one. You know because he’s a little older than the other contestants and he has smoked a sh!tload of pot, so I thought he was going to dance like a dinosaur who forgot all of his steps. Especially after reading Tweets about his dancing on the show being described as wow.
Then this morning, I found his number and was expecting it to totally suck. It is the complete opposite. How he didn’t score higher is proof why the ABC show screwed up by adding a judge and not subtracting three. On that note, did anyone count how many like times Julianne Hough said like on like the show, like really? Plus, the hair, makeup and wardrobe people are obviously not fans of hers because she looked like horrible. But at least Tommy Chong looked great!
BTW since I didn’t watch the show, does anyone know if Cheech Marin ever got out of the car or is he still in there?
Dancing with the Stars announced today that they are adding a fourth judge to the desk and she’s been on the show before. In fact, the three people she will be sitting next to have judged her. It is two-time mirror ball winner Julianne Hough.
The ABC dancing competition has been ratings challenged for the last few years and this is yet another failed fix. I was hoping that when the show got a new Executive Producer, they would finally make some much needed changes. I thought they would change up the pros, so we could see some new choreography. They did not. Then I was hoping they would get rid of the biased judges, who say the same thing ever week. They did not. Instead, they add a fourth judge whose voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Do they need her? No. Four judges is too much, see American Idol. In addition, her brother is on the show and that isn’t fair to the other dancers. Good thing Maksim Chmerkovskiy isn’t there because this would totally piss him. Not because he wanted to be a judge (and he’d be better) because she will be biased towards Derek Hough.
If this doesn’t work, which I doubt will, they really need to change up the whole judging table.
What do you think of Julianne Hough joining Dancing with the Stars as a judge?
Julianne Hough is touring with her brother, Derek, and the two of them are getting quite the workout. So much so, her aching muscles needed an ice bath. Although by the looks of it, she regretted her decision as soon as she jumped in.
Yesterday the loud mouth Abby Lee Miller was a guest judge on Dancing with the Stars and to say she didn’t flop would be a big fat lie, like you know.
Besides the mouth of Dance Moms being on the ABC show, so were her students and their moms. Although it was obvious that Christi and her daughter, Chloe, were missing. So where were the blondes? Christi took to Twitter today to say she doesn’t support people who treats her kids poorly. My hat is off to her for taking that stand. The way that the dance teacher treats Chloe, Nia and Kendall is disgusting and the moms need to protect their girls.
To see how awkward Abby Lee’s appearance was on DWTS, then you can watch it below:
BTW Last night I watched Dancing with the Stars for the first time in a few seasons and I am so happy I gave it up. Next season there is a new Executive Producer coming to the show, and I hope they make some big changes. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, they need to get rid of the judges and the pros that have been on the show forever. As good as Derek Hough, Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke might be, their choreography doesn’t change. They need fresh blood on the dance floor and according to Abby Lee Miller her students are up for the job. Where are these students and why have none of them spoken up to praise her. Or at least I have never heard them saying anything about her. Have you?
Dancing with the Stars has been using guest judges, like Donny Osmond and Julianne Hough, on the ABC show this season and on Monday they are hitting a big fat low. That’s because Dance Moms screaming dance teacher, Abby Lee Miller, is going to be sitting along side Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman.
Hopefully they can find a table big enough to fit her huge ego. Something I am sure that will shrink as the episode goes on because two of the pros, Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, have already spoken out negatively against, what they say is, her abusive teaching style. I am sure they are not going to take her seriously and will bite her head off like she allegedly tried to bite Kelly’s finger off last year, if she says the wrong thing to her. I am also sure that Maksim Chmerkovskiy will also give her grief if she says some thing nasty to him. This is not Lifetime, so they are not going to kiss her a$$.
I am going to tune in just to watch her eat some humble pie, unlike, well you know where I am going…
Now while I know who she is, I am sure most of the DWTS viewers do not. I don’t think they are going to like her aggressive ways and loud raspy voice. I mean, she is the first unknown to sit at the judges table since the show started and with all the horrible changes they have made this season, the loyal viewers might say enough is enough.
Seriously, why are they going with her? There are so many other former-DWTS contenders who would love the opportunity that Donny Osmond had. I even read a rumor that his sister, Marie wanted to be a guest judge.
Oh well, it is things like this that make me so happy I gave up this show a few seasons ago. It also makes me feel really embarrassed to admit that I still watch Dance Moms. I wish I could quit that show too. Please help me!
Danica McKellar joined a long list of injured celebrities from Dancing of the Stars yesterday because she announced on Twitter today that she broke a rib during rehearsal. Melissa Rycroft suffered a fractured rib and Maria Menounos broke 2 of them when they were competing on the ABC show and both stayed on the show until they were eliminated. Hopefully Winnie Cooper will be able to do the same.
In the last year Dancing with the Stars has gone through a lot changes and the last one might be the most devastating one yet.
First ABC cut a night from their two-night programming, then they fired the band and the female co-host before finally changing things up by changing the professional dancers midway through the season.
Well today, The Hollywood Reporter says that Showrunner Conrad Green, who has been with the show since day, is jumping ship to Fox’s Utopia. So that means if ABC renews the show, there will be even more changes.
Hopefully the first one will be the judges because they really need to go. Something Green told me a few years ago didn’t need to happen. Another change that I think they need to do, is change up the pros. If they make those two changes, then I might tune back in. Otherwise it just seems like the same old, same old.
What would make you tune back into Dancing with the Stars?
Derek Hough took off a season of Dancing with the Stars to star in the movie Make Your Move. After watching the trailer, I think he made the wrong move. The dancing looks great, but the acting and plot look so bad that Len, Bruno and Carrie Ann would give him lower numbers than Master P.
So while I won’t be there on April 18th to see it, did it make your dance card?
