I Can't Take the Stress

Seriously. I am terrified Heather Mills' leg is going to fly off, or she's going to fall down. I find myself holding my breath and clenching my stomach muscles the entire time she is dancing. Of course, considering that is the only work-out my stomach muscles have seen since 1985, perhaps it will be in my own personal best interest if she stays in the competition for quite some time.

I adore her. I adore all of them. Well, there are a few I don't adore, but for the most part? All of them? Adorable.

Who do you think is going to go?

And what does it say that I bribed my children into brushing their teeth and putting their pajamas on early, by telling them they could stay up and watch with me? For them, of course, it's all about Hannah Montana's dad. And tonight? He was adorable.

Although Brayden did know all the words to "Ring of Fire", which I found frightening, and for which I place the blame squarely on the shoulders of her Uncle Cliff.

I think the former Miss Whatever has to go.....She is so lanky and awkward. I also think the basketball star may go......I like his personality, but he's not going to last very long. I hear ya on Heather's leg......If I were her, I would super glue that leg on before dancing!

I'm on the left coast so I haven't seen it yet. So, to quote our governor, "I'll be back".

I'm not a Heather Mills fan at all. I'm sorta Team Paul, so secretly I sorta want to see her leg fly off! I'M JOKING....about the leg part anyway. I love Ian, Apollo, Joey, and Laila. Billy Ray definitely gets the "most improved", I was so surprised. Totally addicted to this show, even tho I swore I wouldn't watch after Mario lost last season.

Ok, so Marielle and Rico have to "dance along with the stars" every time the show is on. Then Marielle announces that she and Rico are going to get married when they grow up.

I keep telling her that brother and sister are not allowed to marry but she thinks she is princess of the universe and can make her own rules.

But it is cute to see them dancing along...

LOL... I totally thought the same thing about Heather's leg until I read the People magazine. (She is in the March 26th issue) She states "that she has some kind of sleeve on her leg so it doesn't go flying off. Now rush out and get the People magazine and you can see all 11 contestants.

I think my favorite thing is that Billy Ray Cyrus is known to my kids as 'Hannah Montana's Dad', rather than the mulleted heart-throb who sang Achy Breaky...

OK, to give my answer to your question. I think Shandi, Paulina, and Leeza have the smallest fan base and weren't that great so I pick one of them to go first. I loved Apolo and Joey.

I'm such a reality TV junkie. I need to get a life!

I have class on Monday night, so I missed it tonight. But, last week my bets were on Billy Ray getting the boot. Sounds like he may have redeemed himself tonight.

To funny about Brayden knowing Ring of Fire. My 6 year old has it on his mp3 player. Yes, my 6 year old is that important, lol. His teen brother had one and he wated one for Christmas. He even gave us a list of songs to put on it. American Idol is his favorite. Then there is Ring of Fire, to much time in Papa's truck. He also insisted on Janie's Got a Gun, too much time in the car with mom and her 80s compilation CDs. Gotta love this kid's musical taste.

To be honest Kristie, the British press must be chanting a mantra that she fall off the ice or loses her leg - poor woman can't get a break over here in the UK. Talking of getting a break - any sign of Blaines shoulder being nothing to worry about...you've gone very quiet on the subject. Love and Prayers for you all...how's Kendrie doing she must be what, 15 months off treatment now?

kim said...

Am I the only person in the entire universe who does not watch this show? Never have, not even once. Same for American Idol. Does all of this make me un-American?

I feel so alienated...HAHAHA!

Love Ring of Fire, though.

I teach Girl Guides in our community on Monday nights, so we were home at 745 and dancing with the stars starts at 8. I tell you the Guiders of the world would be embarrassed to know how fast I tun from Guiding Mum to Boot Camp leader....just so my children get to bed :)!!

I don't want any of them to go, I like all of them...but I think its going to be Cliff from Cheers..just because he doesn't have young teenage girls voting for him :(

Just got caught up yesterday on your weekend posts. Fabulous!!

My favorite is Joey Fatone (I'm watching it now and haven't gotten to him now to say whether he was good last night). I like Ian Ziering and I love the boxer!!

I hope Paulina goes tonight. I'm not a big fan of hers and I don't think she danced very well. I would hate to see John Ratzenberger go...he's actually decent. But, I really like Apollo, Ian and Joey. I think it could be an all male finals.

Caroline in NC said...

Leeza was better tonight, but I think she's still at the bottom of my list. I love Heather and Ian and Apolo and Joey and Laila. I also really like the basketball player, but I think he's going to go fairly quickly. They really do have a lot to make up with that height difference. I thought their scores were way too low last night.

I never watched it before but I saw it last week and now I'm hooked! I'm actually dreading the elimination show tonight because I like almost all of them. If I had to choose, Leeza can go.

Love your posts Kristie!

Kristie, I can assure you that it would take an act of God to get her leg to fly off. I know these things. I'm sure that not only is there a sleeve, there's a silicone based liner that magically sticks to her skin on her residual limb and with that there is quite possibly a pin that fits into a lock on the prosthesis. Now you can watch in peace and not worry if she'll take out a camera man or not with a flying leg.

My kids begged to watch it last night, too...all to see Billy Ray Cyrus! I really like Joey and Laila...Heather is surprisingly pretty good and graceful...but for some reason there just don't seem to be as many big personalities on the show this season. Maybe it's just me? Have to say that I love John Ratzenberger and he surprised me with how good he actually is! He also makes really fun comments so I'd like to see him stick around. Poor Leeza...I'm thinking she'll be the first to go. Where are the hot guys like we had last season? Oh Mario.....gotta love those muscles.

Renee said...

Miss USA or whoever needs to be gone. She annoys me with her little cutesy act. I LOVE Apollo and Billy Rae. It is the best show. We laughed and laughed last night. Keith thinks Joey has it wrapped up.

Although I don't watch DWTS, I adore Billy Ray and of course, with a 12 and 5 y.o in the house, we are ALL about Hanna Montana (and The Naked Brothers Band, Zak and Cody, Drake and Josh, Phil of the Future etc.. you know them all as well as I).
Our guilty pleasure is American Idol. My kids can't shower fast enough to gather 'round the TV for it each week.

I'll admit.......I've been a lurker for a long time now. But the "Ring of Fire" comment got me! My 9 year old son not only knew the words, but at the end was sure to let us know that was NOT THE ORIGINAL version. How the crack does he KNOW???? And also he said it was not a 'good' version. Is there really a 'GOOD' version???????

I love John Ratzenberger (is that spelled right?) Hate Heather Mills, although she is a decent dancer....what gets me is all the people who are so "impressed" b/c she's doing all this with "just one leg"....BULL! She has TWO legs, just one is fake! It's not like she's hopping around on the stage on one foot trying to mambo...pooor Paulina, she's trying so hard. She needs an amaretto before her next performance to loosen her up!

Anonymous said...

I must say, Billy Ray's comments and his "rendition" lastnight of Achy Breaky cracked me up!

Sharon said...

I want to see Mills go. I'll be the first to admit I don't know the whooooole story, but I'm a Paul fan and she's "doing him dirty!" I'm sure this was a move by her publicist & divorce attnys to put her in the public eye in a positive light; Not working for me!

Leesa said...

Even though This season should have been renamed "Dancing with Who?" What Stars? it is quite entertaining anyway.. OF course if her leg flew off I would laugh my *** off probably until I wet my pants :) too much information? Just because I'm sick and twisted, not because I think she is a gold-digging wannabe that married Paul for what she could get out of him by any means possible.. hmmm maybe I don't like her? I do LOVE Apollo though!! he is such a cuty!

Briana said...

Ha Ha! Madison had to stay up to watch Hannah Montana's dad, too. (of course, I remember him from the achy breaky heart days - ugghh). Who knows who will go. Like American Idol, the fan votes will come into play, so it won't necessarily be the worst dancer.

Jennifer said...

I am a Joey Fatone fan. I was a really big NSYNC fan. I even took my 3 year old son to their concert in Atlanta about 6 years ago. It was a blast. Anyways, I think Leeza has turned out to be really cute and sweet. She looks really good for 50 also!!! Oh and by the way, I am addicted to your blog. I read each day!!!

Natalie said...

I think they keep talking about her leg falling off to create some drama! Do you think Apollo is sleeping with his partner?

Anonymous said...

Oh my goodness!! That is how I got my kids ready for bed as well!! I think Apollo is cute as well as Billy Ray! Mostly I am proud that my two girls think Laila (SP) Ali is the most beautiful lady on the show!! Yeah a woman with a real figure (you know one other than a stick!!) My husband did admit to only watching to see if Heather's leg flies off!!

I am so scared of Heather Mills leg flying off. I get so scared that I DVR it (record the show) and fast forward while she's dancing. I have to say I love all the teams too. Hannah Montana's Dad did pretty good. I also like Ian Ziering (probably from my 90210 days). Hope all is well in the Big ol' GA!

jadine said...

To Kim, whom I don't know:

I also don't know if you read the comments left by other commentors, but I, too, do not watch the show. I have no clue what anyone's talking about here, but don't you find it interesting that there are such diverse opinions?

Just sayin'.
