Tag: Dancing With The Stars

And the winner is…

You might know this all ready or you might not, but Jennifer Gray won the ABC competition “Dancing with the Stars”. I know the question on your mind is: Where did Bristol place? And, you can find the article that answers that question here.

And, here is the comment I posted there.  I wouldn’t want you to miss it.

And, here we go yet again, spending more time discussing the LOSER of something than the WINNER. Jennifer Gray won the contest both in talent (based on her perfect scores) and in votes. So, why are we discussing Bristol? Why have we decided in this country to celebrate the losers in anything? For another example that proves my point take Sunday’s Green Bay vs Minnesota. The announcers spent so much time discussing Brett Favre and his losing team that they went into a commercial claiming the Vikings were up by 21 points, when they were losing by 21 points. Getting back to DWTS, I have nothing against Bristol Palin but we shouldn’t be discussing her anymore. She lost. Her mother lost an election and she’s in the news every other day. Game over. I’d rather read an article about how Jennifer Gray competed with an injury.

Man shoots TV after watching Dancing with the Stars!

Dancing With The Stars

ABC’s Dancing With The Stars announced it’s line up of stars today. Lined up are David Hasselhoff, Florence Henderson, Kurt Warner, Margaret Cho, Jennifer Grey, Rick Fox, Michael Bolton, Kyle Massey, Brandy Norwood, Audrina Patridge and two others.

What were their names again?

Oh, yeah, Mike Sorrentino and Bristol Palin.

Yes, you read that right. Somehow, the guy they call “The Situation” from that ridiculous reality show The Jersey Shore is considered a star. A FREAKING STAR! Really? Really?

Why do we watch these train wrecks on reality shows? I saw a grand total of 30 seconds of that show and I lost ten IQ points. We have truly gone nuts in this country when we – not only watch these train wrecks – but allow them “star” status.

Burt Reynolds is a star. Marlon Brando was a star. Frank Sinatra. Rosemary Clooney. Sammy Davis, Jr. George Clooney. Demi Moore. Ashley Judd.

Those are stars – very good stars in fact.

I can see David Hasselhoff and Florence Henderson, but why does ABC have to stoop so low to include “The Situation”?

And, I have made a point in the past of not picking on Bristol Palin. I don’t believe in including celebrities’ children in political discussions, but this isn’t a political discussion. And, by signing up to be on this show (and being over 18), she leaves herself up to this.

Since when is Bristol Palin a star? What has she ever done to be granted that? She’s waved at the crowds, but not much else. How could DWTS consider Bristol a “star”?

Maybe, I could talk my mom into running for Vice President, so I could wave at crowds and appear on DWTS.

I think we’re really lowing our standards in this country. Glad I have better things to do with my time then watch DWTS. I really hope you do, too.
