So as many of you can tell, we don’t have your traditional Dancing with the Stars recap for you today. Well, I can tell you that it’s because I’m suffering from what we in the celebrity world like to call “exhaustion.” After a weekend in Houston, TX to celebrate the wedding of two of my best friends, things got a little out of control. And I’m not saying I’m like, a step away from Promises, but I am saying that sister needs a good night’s sleep.
The disappointing thing about all of this is that it was 80s Week! And everything on DWTS was just ridiculous. From the costumes to the music to the archived photos of pros, judges and hosts, what the show may have lacked in entertainment value it made up for by being bonkers. For example, Brooke Burke was wearing shoulder pads that almost rose to touch the top of her hair, iamnotkiddingyou.
So here’s a rundown of what you may have missed:
Hope Solo is kind of a brat and not a great dancer and I’ve kind of had it with her. David Arquette does a fantastic impression of Len. Lacey’s dad is a dancing champ and also overweight so she brought him in to coach Chaz Bono, which I thought was pretty offensive. Carson wore a cheerleading costume. Nancy Grace was a cheerleader in college (high school? the dates were not specified) and does a funky little number that is similar to a Nicki Minaj rap. Derek Hough was a fetus in the 80s so he can’t possible choreograph for such kinds of dances. Ricki Lake cannot do the Roger Rabbit. The Bangles performed, twice. Rob Kardashian thinks of Cheryl as his sister but makes out with her, which made me uncomfortable. J.R. Martinez pretty much did the best male Samba ever and got a 10 from Bruno for it.
And just in case you missed it, above is the Footloose performance from last week’s results show. I think it’s pretty freakin’ fantastic.
