    Alas, I know I'm going to miss at leas the first half-hour. (Had to move my lesson to tonight.)

    Oh, well, if Hope snaps and kicks Maks where it counts I'm sure that will be on youtube two minutes after it happens...

    I think you can tell whom the producers want to stay judging by the songs they gave them. Last week and this week. :rolleyes:

    And every other week. I'm still upset that Lacey didn't march over and bitchslap Derek while reminding him of her and Kyle's foxtrot to Charlie's Angels when he whined about having to use a Phil Collins song.

    Hope was asked about the Maks incident on Ryan Seacrest radio show. Hope Solo Almost Quit DWTS After Incident with Maksim

    I think you were onto something, danceronice. Hope said she was careful how to react (and not to react) to what happened because of how the show had portrayed her so far in the rehearsal clips. That's smart, but that pisses me off in a way because if someone shoves you and treats you like that you have every right to tell them exactly what you think about them right there and then. Wouldn't it be great if she said, "Do it again and I'm going to tie your balls behind your ears live on national TV"?

    So that's another woman (after Debi Mazar) who comes out and says that yes, it was exactly what you saw (or even worse, in Debi's case) and Maks didn't come off as an asshole because of some editing trickery.

    This is a really weird song to quickstep to (Take on Me) but Rob's improvements over the weeks is pretty amazing! He still has the odd awkward moments, but overall nice job. I wish I could say the same for the singer's rendition of the high notes. ;)

    That wasn't bad from Rob, he's just kind of awkward.

    He has improved over the weeks. And I agree about the high notes.


    ummmm--what the heck did they do to Carrie Ann?

    Is Cheryl's dress supposed to give the illusion of being topless? :yikes:

    Ricki and JR are going to get 10s (Ricky more than JR), Hope 8s, and Nancy 7s (maybe one 8 if she does good or a 6 if she does not). So boring and predictable.

    I think you're right. Nancy is toast tonight, although I think she's better than Hope.

    Maks in damage control big time. Look at what a good son and person I am.

    Hope looks like she's dead while she's dancing in hold and he's dragging her corpse around.

    Another weird song choice for the quickstep...

    Hope looks better, but still has awkward moments. She always looks better when she's not trying to be sexy. I guess this is make nice week for them, but I'm questioning the sincerity. I'm guessing a 25 or 26.

    If Hope and Rob got all 9s, are the judges going to go over 10s for Ricky and JR?

    Ricki danced well. I don't think it's all 10s. Not sure about the shoulders.

    Is it wrong if I was enjoying the decoration much more than R/D's dance?! :shuffle:
