Dancing with the Stars - Week 3

The tango and the jive were the chosen dances for last nights, Dancing with the Stars I have to admit that I don't always "get" the tango. Sometimes they just look stiff and pissed off to me and some of the moves make no sense to me at all. I mean what is the point of those repeated sharp head turns. Maybe if some one besides Jimmy Kimmel explained it to me, I might understand.

In the meantime, when I see a tango that is really great to me, it's usually phenomenal to the rest of the world. With that being said, I'm not sure there was a really great tango last night. While I understood that Jane Seymour's rendition was very emotional due to the death of her mother, it was still not a blazing tango in my book.

And Wayne Newton, well, I was hoping he's stay on long enough for them to go to his farm and show some of his beautiful herd of Arabian horses. They did that last night. Although they only panned one shed row with a handful of mares, that was good for my horsey fix. And my husband was pleased to point out that with Wayne having a herd of 75 Arabian horses, we actually have one third as many as Wayne. He said that like it was some great accomplishment, like maybe we were somehow keeping up with Wayne. But I quickly reminded him that we are supporting our 25 horses on nowhere near one third Wayne Newton's horse budget. Boy wouldn't that be a fantasy, one third of Wayne's horse budget to support my herd!!! That's a dream I could live with, especially since my 25 are the quality of Wayne's. But since my dream isn't what this blog is supposed to be about and there's not much chance in Wayne sharing his horse budget with me, I have to say, I'm afraid Wayne is probably the number one choice to be voted off tonight. I really like his new do and think the weight loss is looking good but I'm not sure that his great personality is going to be enough to carry him through another week. But I'm hoping...........cause I'd love to get another look at some more of Wayne's horses! AND I know he really wants to stay.

The jive on the other hand can get my juices flowing. I love the energy of the dance so it is one of my favorites. While I enjoyed last night's renditions, I can't say that there was one particular performance that jumped out at me. I know I'm not an expert but it takes more than tons of action to get me excited. I thought they were fun to watch but nothing spectacular. Geez! I'm getting to be a ballroom snob!

Dancing with the Stars - Week 2 Results

Well, the Dancing with the Stars http://abc.go.com/primetime/dancingwiththestars/index results came in and Albert Reed was the next one sent home. Both of the super models are history.

I was suprised to see Albert voted off so soon. He had been so hot the first week. However, his second dance left something to be desired. I felt a little sorry for him until I heard that he was pretty arrogant on Jimmy Kimmel Live http://abc.go.com/latenight/jimmykimmel/index?pn=index Arrogance is neither flattering nor endearing, so now I'm glad that he's gone. I guess the part he didn't get about Wayne Newton still being around is that Wayne knows how to make the fans love him.

Jane Seymour is returning to the competition for tonight's performance. Her partner, Tony, followed her to England to work on their routine. Even with all the turmoil in her life, I'm sure that Jane will put everything she's got into this, after all she's dancing for her mother. Ill be this has become even more important now that her mother is gone.

On a lighter note, I'm looking forward to seeing what the stars have in store for us tonight. I don't pay enough attention to even remember what dances they'll be doing. But I'm sure whatever the choices are that it will be another entertaining evening of television.

The results show for the second week of Dancing with the Stars happens tonight on ABC. While who goes home is still a mystery the blogosphere is already polarizing as people decide their favorites.

Mark Cuban and his partner, Kym Johnson are beginning to garner some attention. Featured on a blog post devoted specifically to their performance this week. Maybe this will help raise the tycoon higher in the popularity polls this week.

While, yet another blog lines up behind Helio Castroneves and his partner, Juliane Hough suggesting, Apolo who? Now don't go picking on Apolo, he was HOT, HOT, HOT, last year!
There's even been special attention to the Hispanic speaking portion of the population tuning in to support the race car driver in the form of Top Ratings in Hispanic TV

Also in the news, Jane Seymour will not make the results show tonight due to the death of her mother. Whether or not Jane will return to the show is still unknown For more information

Personally I hope that Mark Cuban doesn't get knocked out because I think he brings a lot of heart and a great sense of competition to the show. And then Wayne Newton may have been not made a huge splash with his slow moving quick step, he's still Mister Showman, himself, and brings a special something to the show. Not to mention the older generation that tunes in to watch their peers, Newton and Seymour, take on the young pups. Now that we don't know if we're keeping Jane, it would be a real loss to have Newton depart too.

I think this season is off to another exciting roll, with the scores actually higher than in the years past. This is sure to be a great season and I for one don't intend on missing a single one.
