So let me first start out by asking, "Since when did the word 'Argentine' become a word that rhymes with 'Valentine'?" Really? This is bringing me back to the sexual hair-es-ment days.
Pronunciation aside, I would like to make a few comments on last night's Dancing With The Stars because there were certainly some moments that I think were, well, commentable(?). (Hey, if we can play with words, I'm just going to go ahead and make some up!)
It was a night of the Lyndy-Hop (still trying to wrap my head around this one) and as mentioned, the Argentine Tango.
Lil' Kim scores the first 10 of the season, and I think it was well-deserved. Her teary eyes that developed as a result of her nailing the intricate fancy footwork, proved that she really is one who is dedicated and really is one who is taking the competition seriously. She definitely showed a vulnerability, which was kind of sweet to watch, given the fact that this was once the same person who has served time in prison!
While Lil' Kim may have taken a snippet of my heart last night, it doesn't change the fact that the rest of my love lies with Steve-O. Talk about someone who wears every single emotion on his face -- how can you not just want to squeeze this guy to try and make him all better? And if I am any Patti Stanger (the Millionaire Matchmaker who specializes in body language), I think we may just have a little match made in ballroom heaven on our hands. Partner, Lacey Schwimmer seems to have really taken a liking to this former clown (and I'm not speaking figuratively; yes, in last night's episode, we learned that the Jackass star really was a clown in some past life). Now if she can support that and calls him 'babe' in every post interview, I think we might have something more here than just regular ol' dance partners.
Melissa Rycroft did the Lyndy-Hop, scored a whopping 29, proving that she is as consistent as the sequins that cover her lower back tattoo.
But if you thought a 29 would be the highest score we would see all night, especially given this is only the 4th week, you would be wrong! The 'red hot poker', Gilles was still to come! Boy, did he and Cheryl deliver! Their Argentine Tango took me on a whirlwind of feelings. It was slow. It was fast. It was soft. It was hard. Yowza. I'm getting a little overheated just thinking about it. Should the long dark hair beauty in the front row whom the cameras always seem to pan up on when the hotness of Gilles and Cheryl is discussed be concerned? Man, Cheryl must be counting her lucky stars she landed Mr. Sex and the City rather than say, um . . the Steve "I could win every wet t-shirt contest along the Spring Break strip given the size of my sweat stains" Wozniak. Ah, poor Karina.
So that's it for now my Dancing-Fools . Who do you think will be eliminated tonight? Hopefully it's the Woz, but it seems as if we may have a dorks unite brigade on our hands. What about Holly? Man, that girl makes me feel strange. Those nervous little laughs she does every five seconds are a little daunting . . too much time locked in mansion, 9:00 curfews, under the lock and key of 80-year-old man, must be a hard mindset to break free from. And do you think they were fair to Shawn? Come on, we were treated to tricks and flips from an Olympian gold medalist and all that they could say was, it was 'good'!?
