Something’s Rotten on “Dancing with the Stars”

By Adele

It’s hard to believe that anyone thinks Bristol Palin is a better dancer than the last few who have been voted off DWTS.

I have a couple of theories: 1) Sarah Palin’s Mama Grizzlies are doing her evil bidding and voting in force, or 2) The producers are rigging the show to milk the Palin connection.

I’m not the only one who thinks they’ve struck some back-room deal with Sarah on Bristol’s behalf.

Sarah’s smirking mug has been noticeably absent from the audience, now that the remaining contestants can pretty much dance circles around Bristol, yet they keep getting the hook while Bristol remains safe.

Sarah even let it “slip” in Houston the other day that they asked her husband Todd to be on the show, but left unsaid whether he was their first choice. She couldn’t resist getting in that little dig at Bristol, probably as payback for giving Levi a second chance, even as she angles to help Bristol win in case the truth ever comes out. God forbid she should be exposed as a bad mother.

I basically like Bristol, but in 6 weeks, she hasn’t advanced beyond basic steps in any dance. Last night’s tango was her best, but only because the judges kindly overlooked how mushy it was. Tango is supposed to be crisp, staccato. Bristol did get her head right (better than Florence Henderson, in fact) but Mark led her like they were waltzing. See for yourself:

Meanwhile, Audrina and Jennifer, who have worked like dogs from Day One and are far better dancers than Bristol, landed on the bottom, and Audrina got booted.

We didn’t see the whole show. Karen turned off the TV, saying, “A night of rock’ means everybody dances to bad music.” And the results drove another nail into its coffin.

    EVERY contestant on that show loses a ton of weight(Jerry Springersaid he dropped close to 20 lbs)Bristol still looks like a Stay-Puft Marshmallow.proof that she is just sleepwalking through her rehearsals.Teen Activist,my ass

    Zappa’s mom

  2. I still don’t know who Audrina is (or was) BUT after week 1, you start to enjoy the contestants on the show on their own merits–celebrity schmelebrity. Jennifer Gray is a bit of a train wreck emotionally (though she has talent) but Audrina seemed like a genuinely nice person who also has talent! Bristol (she of the frozen face), on the other hand, should’ve gone before Florence Henderson (who makes Grandma’s everywhere HOPE again)! Dancing with the Stars is most enjoyable if you have DVR. I can watch a 2-hour show in 35 minutes. I highly recommend this!

    I agree 100% She is terrible!!!!

    The judges gushed over Palin (who should have stayed in the monkey suit) on the night of the performance and then Len says America got it wrong when it was down to Jennifer and Audrina?!?!?!?

    It is appalling.

    Donna, it would seem to indicate one of 2 things: 1) Bristol’s not working at it very hard, or 2) There’s a reason she’s keeping the poundage.

    The “other” rumor I found online while researching this post is that Bristol’s pregnant again by another guy. This isn’t the first time it’s been said about her, and it was false before, so who knows?

    If she IS pregnant again, it won’t surprise me. I’d bet my treats she has the maternal gene her mother lacks and she’d be happy with a bunch of kids, living happily ever after in obscurity in Wasilla. (Except for the money, of course.)

    Welcome, robliano! The judges’ behavior is another kettle of fish, and strongly points to being coached on who to gush over before each show. There’s no way Len didn’t notice how fuzzy Bristol’s tango was unless he’d been told to lay off.

    As for the scoring, don’t get me started. Sure, we see the judges’ scores, but we NEVER see any numbers from the viewers. Even if we did, you couldn’t believe them. I don’t think the calls are even counted. The producers just pick whomever they want, just like they stick the ones they want to eliminate with really bad music.

    Noel, you are right. A DVR would help. Sometimes Karen tapes it so we can FF through the 90% fluff. But all bets are off when they dance to bad music. She won’t even watch it.
