Dancing Blogging

Lisa Rinni: cute, but no cigar.

Drew Lachey: ho-hum.

Tia: I think the chick judge is propping her scores up. Much better this week though.

I'm becoming a big George Hamilton fan. He's having the most fun out there and he refuses to take himself seriously.

Tatum Oneal: did she just flash a cameltoe?

Jerry: love that guy. Great routine too. Nice job.

Wrestler chick: her bod adds 1 to 2 points to her score. It's not fair. She's got to be gettin it on with the dude. I can tell.

Master P: ironically, he could use a little more hip-hop in his step.

Giselle Fernandez: nice abs, but who is she? Is she a celebrity? I thought hers was the best choreographed of the night.

Update: My mom, who previously could never be bothered with anything football related, now announces that she has a crush on Jerry Rice.

Amazing how this show sucks you in. I had to flip back and forth between DWTS and Earl. Tatum did show the goods, and she's hot for being on the wrong side of forty. The wrestler chick is no wrestler at all. Bet she's been a ballerina since she was five. Jerry has the athleticism, and he's a crowd fav. He just needs to bring in a little more elegance to his movement.

Giselle was actualy a sports commentator.

Giselle was a world class volleyball player and now model

Is she the one with the grotesque top lip? Good cosmetic surgery gone bad.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 13, 2006

Yeah, it's funny that everyone on DWTS refers to Stacy Keibler as a "wrestler." She was a dancer who was hired when the late, lamented WCW had a dance team on their show in the late 90's. She stuck around cause, well, look at her.

Yeah, she's had wrestling matches, but so did Jay Leno, and he's still a talk show host, not a wrestler.

Stacy did used to dance. Ballet, Jazz, and was also a cheerleader for the Crows.

Stacy and Giselle both look Tia Carrere look almost austere. I wouldn't have believed it was possible. Yowza. If I bothered to vote I'd vote for one of them, just for the sake of more drool time.

I've heard of almost none of these people, I don't know what a cameltoe is, but having spent my college years in the Bay Area while Jerry Rice was lighting it up, I have a crush on him too.

Hey does anyone know anything about Blognation. My blog has disappeared and now I got no way to even contact them. What is more I think someone stole my blog account. Man, this sucks

Giselle Fernandez: nice abs, but who is she? Is she a celebrity?

A long time ago (at least 10-15 years ago), Giselle Fernandez was an anchor/reporter for the local CBS affiliate here in Chicago. IIRC, there were whispers that she was romantically involved with one of the honchos in the news department at the station (although this might have been someone else, I'm not sure). Since she left Chicago, I've seen her occasionally on various infotainment-ish things, none of which seem to last very long. Access Hollywood did a segment on her DWTS appearance a couple of weeks ago. Apparently, she was one of the original hosts. Before this, I hadn't seen her in a couple of years.

Frankly, I find it both frightening and depressing that I retain biographical data and gossip on third-rate talking hairdos who were on local TV more than a decade ago, but I can't remember stuff that I actually give a rodent's glutes about, like whether I remembered to put money on my transit card.

I missed the show, but the comments make me wonder if Jerry Rice = Lynn Swann.

Posted by: Trevor on Jan. 13, 2006

Aw c'mon Hugo, you know, it's when you pull your pants up too tight.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 13, 2006

This thing is fixed like a Chicago election. Tatum gets the boot, WTFO? That P doody lummux, and the non-star Drew were easily the worst of the bunch. The "wrestler" is a ringer, and a lock to win. The only drama here is how they'll edit it to look like a competition.

Don't listen tot he cynic, Annie. Just because he's right, he has no license to rain on your parade.

God Bless all of us, and especialy those doing his work.

Enjoy the dance.

It just dawned on me: You're thinking of Gabrielle Reece, not Giselle Fernandez. G

Geez, man, get your hotties straight!

Ah, shit. I hoped I had hit the "Stop" button in time.

Posted by: Matt on Jan. 15, 2006

Not to worry Matt. It's just anothing thing to add to your "not to do while drinking" list. Shit, I've had to quit drinking and shopping, which is really hard with ebay out there. WTH am I going to do with three PDA's?

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 15, 2006

Casca, sell 'em on eBay. Some drunken fool out there will buy them

Giselle Fernandez used to co-host the Saturday morning edition of TODAY. I used to tune it in just to get a look at her legs, which at the time I thought the best newsbabe legs on tv. I've been mourning her disappearance from view for a few years now and was overjoyed to learn that she'd be dancing on the new edition of DANCING WITH THE STARS--especially since I'd watched a few ballroom dancing championships on PBS and knew how women in the Latin Dance contests generally wear the skimpiest costumes they can get away with.

Keep movin' folks. Nuthin' to see here.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 16, 2006

Indeed, Casca. Indeed. "Never wrestle with a pig . . . " and all that.

Posted by: Matt on Jan. 16, 2006

Right on, Robert.

Contact Strawman on another channel, please; we've got important shit to discuss here.

Back to the dance, boys and girl.

Dammit Annika, where are ya girl, we need more posts. This one is stale.
Hey guys go to my blog to see my latest post about Social Security.

By the way, Hugo, a camel's-toe is not when YOU pull up your pants too tight. It is when a person missing a chromosome does it, you know, like Annie or that little weirdo Kyle.
