Dancing With The Stars: Semi Finals

by Heather Parish

There’s just four celebs left now and inter-couple tensions are on the boil. For this episode, the workload is high. It’s the semi-finals, which means two new routines and then a winner-take-all cha-cha for 15 bonus points. Prior to each number, we’re treated some behind-the-scenes footage that’s cut to show the perilous physical and mental edge that Dancing With the Stars contestants must walk if they hope to cut the mustard.

Dancing With The Stars: Competition Round 5

by Heather Parish

This week marked the middle of the season for Dancing with the Stars, and to celebrate they treat us with American Theme week. This theme is definitely my least favorite so far this season—especially when compared to last week’s awesome Classical Music Night. Yes, I am a proud American, but I just thought Monday night’s theme trotted out the most overused of American clichés and stereotypes possible. There were more flag and military themed costumes trimmed with rhinestones and sequins than I could have conceived possible. God bless America…?

Dancing with the Stars opened its 12th Season on ABC this past week, and did so with a group of run-of-the-mill "celebrities" called “dull” by the press. Without a Tom Delay or Bristol Palin-- or even a Cloris Leachman in all her octogenarian glory-- there probably won't be a lot of headlines written about this season to boost news circulation.
