OMG! It’s Week Two on Dancing with the Stars, but it’s not just any week – it’s elimination week! I had deja vu about my Season Six, Week Two performance. I had the quick step and I got three 7s (better than week one), but I tripped when my shoe got stuck in my dress. I was in the bottom two and yes, I also cried on camera. People may have forgotten, but week two was the week I broke down on camera and cried! I bring this up only because this week it was all tears and frustration with the stars and the prodancers – but in the end, it really felt that everyone wanted to be there.
Even Buzz Aldrin came out fighting! Everyone knows this is the last chance – you can’t be the first to go home! OK, first — how excited was I when I saw Pamela Anderson come down the stairs in her Marilyn Monroe get-up? You know I love Pammy, but that outfit was the best I’ve seen from any season – hair and all.
I also loved Chelsie Hightower’s dress. OMG I was so engrossed in its movement, I missed some of Jake Pavelka’s messy footwork! It was all about her dress. But what was with scoring 10s in week two? Are you kidding me? Congrats to Derek Hough and Nicole Scherzinger, but I can’t remember seeing that happen before.
Okay, rewind: the craziest thing about the two-10S score was the fact that there weren’t three tens awarded! That dance was awesome. Tony will kill me for saying this: it IS insulting to the pro-dancers to say a celebrity looks like a pro. BUT Derek and Nicole looked like they were a pro couple doing a pro dance. (So, sorry, Tony, I love you).
