I am disgusted with the selection of one of the most despicable persons in media today, Nancy Grace. :evil: I can not exaggerate my contempt for her. She drove a possible innocent woman to suicide and could not pull up her big girl panties and move on from the Casey Anthony verdict.

Another Kardashian? Are you kidding????? Is there a factory somewhere cranking these untalented family member out????

My early winning pick: Hope Solo.

When I told my DH that Nancy Grace was going to be on DWTS, he laughed and laughed.

I am very surprised at the cast. There is a lot of drama in that group. It should be an interesting season.

I am a little confused about Chaz. Will there be a female partner, or male?

Yay DWTS!!!

Some of them I know and some I've never heard of.....Let the dancing begin!!

Good luck to them all....

I may not like some of them however I put that aside and judge them on their dancing ability.

Chaz should be dancing with a female since she is now formally a He. Too bad Cher was not in the show instead.

Carlson should bring some laughs to the show...
Nancy should bring drama to the show....

Every show needs some laughter and drama...

I'm looking forward to seeing....Ricki, Carlson, Chaz, David, Hope, Kristin and Chyna dance.

I wonder if My Max is in the show this season...

Looks like the same C and D list celebrities. Carson Kressly is probably the most current and popular. Nancy Grace????? Are you kidding?

I've never watched an episode and it looks like, once again, I won't.

Take care,
Mike

Okay, now I have a question. Is Carson Kreslsey playing it "straight" by dancing the man's part with a female teacher, or is he going in "drag" and dancing the woman's part with a male teacher?

Just curious....

Norm.

P. S.: Neighbor, I take it from the fact that you are posting again that you all survived Irene, that you have power (either still or again), and that all is well.

Yes, I also probably will not get to watch. On Monday nights, I'm usually on the flloor at a local Arthur Murray International dance studio.

before they announced the celebrity match ups, i was thinking that they would pair up Hope Solo and Maks, i think they might be the ones to watch, being a soccer goalie she should be able to move, and if nothing else they will make a gorgeous couple to watch.
Nancy Grace will probably get booed even before she hits the dance floor, it would be kind of ironic if she turns out to be a good dancer because i don't think she would get the votes because so many people dislike that woman, but who knows?
Some very interesting parings

It is good to see that Derek is coming back. I missed him last season. Carson is very funny, and I am sure he will have more than a few things to say about the outfits.

Nancy gets on my nerves too, but I think passion for what she believes in, comes off as *****ness.

Hopefully, it will be a very good season.

My hubby normally doesn't watch this show. But now that Hope Solo is on it. He is very interested. I know Lacey Schwimmer would be paired with Chaz Bono. I'm not sure I know what I think about Chaz Bono being a part of the show. She's the daughter of someone famous. So it's kind of like Bistol from last year. Does being related to someone famous really make you a star? I bet Ricki Lake will be unexpectly good. However, since I expect her to be good I guess that statement makes no sense. She was in the original movie Hairspray which required her to dance.

Sounds like the "A" list of losers to me! Never heard of most of 'em, and the ones I have heard of, I have no respect for! Guess I won't watch this season.

Be aware that people who are very proficient at show (ballet, jazz, tap, Irish step, etc.) dancing often find that the transition to ballroom dancing is much more difficult than they expect. They often have considerable difficulty adjusting to the dynamics of leading and following, and other differences in styling and technique also often cause significant difficulties in the transition.

I'm not familiar with the movie "hairspray," but this comment applies even if she was supposedly doing a ballroom dance in the movie. Shows and movies often feature dance routines choreographed to look like ballroom dances rather than actual ballroom dancing. Very few show dancers have any real ballroom training.

Norm.
