I am a huge "Dancing with the Stars" fan. I love writing but because I do it for a living sometimes it's not always a joy. Just like any relationship. But my favorite thing to do in the world is dance. When I'm stressed out from writing an article or script, I may throw on one of my old Madonna CD's and start dancing in my living room. Keep that between us. But my joy for dancing coupled with my girly-girl fascination with the sparkly costumes is why I love DWTS.
This is one of the sexiest seasons of DWTS. Gilles Marini from the "Sex and the City" movie is crazy, hot. Ladies, you remember this French hottie who played Samantha's beach house neighbor. He was the one who liked showering outside in the nude. I don't think he spoke the whole movie but Good Lawd he fine! Gilles was a fireman from the French army before coming to Hollywood. And he's keeping the fire burning on dance floor. He is a good dancer. I'm a comic book fan so when he and partner Cheryl Burke did this Clark Kent and Lois Lane-themed quickstep to 3 Doors Down "Kryptonite" I was digging it. Especially the end when he took off his thick black glasses, slid across the floor on his knees, ripped open his shirt and flashed the Super "G" on his chest. I was throwing them. See for yourself. Cheryl Burke usually gets the hot partners. I ain't mad at her. In case you couldn't tell I'm voting for Gilles.
Gilles isn't the only one keeping it steamy. There's real-life couple Julianne Hough and country star Chuck Wicks. They're a cute couple and you can see the love and passion they have for each other in their performances. Also, there's Ex-Playboy Bunny Holly Madison and Lil' Kim.
And finally I imagine being dumped by the Bachelor a few weeks ago was the best thing that happened to Melissa Rycroft. In case you don't know the story Melissa got the final rose on "The Bachelor." On the followup show, homeboy changed his mind and picked someone else. A few weeks after getting kicked to the curb Melissa was called to replace "Access Hollywood's" Nancy O'Dell after she injured herself. Talk about when one door closes another opens. Melissa is really shining on the DWTS. She had a few days of practice before the first show and kicked butt. In all fairness she does have a dance background. She took ballet and was a Dallas Cowgirl. I voted for her too. Normally, I don't think it's fair for people with dance backgrounds to compete because that's an unfair advantage. But since it was a last minute replacement I'll give them a pass.
So that's my DWTS. I had no intentions of writing this much. I can't predict who will make it to the finals just yet. Who are your favorites?
