It is with great sadness that I write this post.
Here's the thing, I used to really like this show
...but after hearing who the new cast will be for the new season, I'm a little irritated, pretty bummed, and really disappointed. I mean, I know these kinds of shows always consist of those "celebrities" who are "past their prime", if you will, but I always thought that Dancing with the Stars always had the better of the washed up/irrelevant "celebrities."
Not so much anymore.
Check it out:
David Arquette- hasn't seriously acted in forever. The only reason he's relevant right now is because of all his divorce drama.
Ricki Lake- Enough with all the reality shows girlfriend. Find something legit to do.
Ron Artest- I don't like you. Mostly because you play for the Lakers, and you hit a game winning shot against the Phoenix Suns a couple years back (not that I hold grudges or anything). BUT I get that you may be bored and don't have anything else to do during the lockout. At least you have a legitimate career. AND I heard your daughter who's a cancer survivor asked you to do the show and all your proceeds are going to cancer research. Alright fine, you're off the hook...but that doesn't mean I like you.
Rob Kardashian- SERIOUSLY??
Kristin Cavallari- I repeat...SERIOUSLY??
Hope Solo- You're a BA...and you're really pretty...you also get a pass
Chaz Bono- The only reason Chaz Bono might be considered a "star" is because he (she?) is the spawn of a star. Is this a political move? Cause if it is, I'm totally over it.
Nancy Grace- Oh Lord help us...
I don't think I even know your name- But you just broke up with George Clooney...and that qualifies as "celebrity"??
And you are..??
Carson Kressley- Some reality show host, right?
J.R. Martinez- Not sure who you are either, but I hear you're a soap star and an Iraq war veteran. At least you're a working actor, and any veteran gets kudos in my book. You get a pass too.
So needless to say this season's line up is less than stellar and I'm really bummed about it cause, like I said, I used to really like this show.
Maybe I'll tune in anyway and someone will grow on me.
Only time will tell!
