    I have to admit that his rehearsal fluff got to me this week. That baby is too adorable, almost as adorable as her father! I hope he continues to improve and hangs around a while.

    That video was great --thanks for posting it.

    I don't know about the rest of you think, but imo, like a fair number of skaters, Pamela Anderson looks way better during rehearsal than she does with the hair and makeup done for the show.

    I agree- I wish she'd get her hair out of her face so we can see whatever emotion she is trying to put into her dance.

    Kate has got to go. I don't care whether Jake stays or goes, but he is pleasant enough to watch and Kate's dancing hurts my eyes.

    That was friggin' spooky accurate. :lol: Cherry-on-top was getting Florence to sit in the audience.

    but Jimmy's band was way too good to make this a truly realisitc recreation :shuffle:

    Like most here, I cannot understand how Kate survives the vote.
    Tony deserves an award for coping wiith her.

    Since the dances this week were supposed to tell a story, when Kate ended her routing by falling to the ground and grabbing Tony's leg, was he trying to say the Kate recognized that she needs the paparazzi eventhough she hates them? I would think he would let Kate kill off the papparazi character at the end.

    In that case, I hope Evan is practicing how to be "smoldering" without looking self-conscious. C'mon Evan. Bring it on. :lol:

    I agree that I thought his fans would keep him in longer as well. He was totally an inspiration (regardless of actual dance talent at his age).
    Would an elder of his status have been voted off so soon in any other country??
    As someone here said, perhaps his fans -or those showing some respect for him, only call in and don't do the other methods as easily.
    Nothing against Cloris, but I recall that she was kept on for quite some time.

    Evan can be sexy looking dancing and skating, but something happens to that when he starts to speak. He doesn't have that sensuality when he talks, I don't know if it's his accent or what, but me no like. :scream:

    It's not his "accent" but rather his intonation and inflection -- his voice is rather nasal and he tends to speak in a monotone -- sort of the antithesis of Sean Connery or Richard Burton (to mention a few classic "sexy" voices -- imo).

    This is supposed to be a dancing competition. I'm glad Buzz is not being kept around simply because of his past achievements and age. If Mother Teressa was on the show and she danced like Kate Gosslin? Vote her off.

    I read somewhere that a pro Kate vote is really an anti Jon vote.

    Which is really stupid. If I'd had to live with Kate more than a few weeks I'd be a nutjob by now too.

    Great. So to somehow theoretically "punish" Jon, DWTS viewers have to be punished as well. :mad:

    I also read somewhere (maybe here?) that her friends/fans started a website begging for votes so she can support her children. Hmm, why don't you try getting a frickin' JOB, like the rest of us?!? :rolleyes:

    But whatever. I'm only watching this DWTS season because Evan's on it, and I'm pretty sure I'll take the fall season off (unless Johnny or another skater makes the cast, lol). When it comes to Kate... well, thank God for the fast-forward button.

    Kate basically *does* think her job is to do television.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VctvMfdQZ_M

    Here she broaches doing "anything," including working at McDonald's, to support her kids, but she rationalizes it won't pay enough and tv is her only option. She doesn't realize she comes across as entitled. BTW, most people don't have $230,000 sitting in their bank account to be stolen, and her kids should not feel disappointed because they're not on tv and therefore in nyc looking at the Statue of Liberty. Whatever!

    I didn't know, as someone mentioned earlier, she was a nurse.

    I wonder if they're going to eventually mention how Evan is globe-trotting back and forth between SOI and DWTS and how hard it is to do both. Smuckers should buy some advertising time with DWTS to make it happen. It might boost sales.

    I was just about to post that.
    I think that it may explain some aspects of her personality.
    (Bossy, demanding, ultra-controlling, etc.)

    Her children are old enough now. Why doesn't she return to work?
    Nurses are "in demand"; although the salary might not support her current lifestyle/desires!

    Oh, God. Can you imagine having Nurse Whines-A-Lot show up in your hospital room complaining that all the doctors pick on her?

    Mortician. She could be a mortician.

    iirc, don't all the celebs make the same for the season whether they are voted off first or not? except maybe for some bonus for the finale? so Kate has already been paid.
