Solomon, I don't think you understand what the show Dancing with the Stars is about. It is exactly about the stars. The dances are the same each season but the people who are performing them are NOT. It is a competition show, so why would the dances have to change? Rules are rules.

I agree about TV Guide. It is terrible now. Don't watch Idol, so can't comment on Abdul...but from the clips I see on late night talk shows...she has emotional issues.

So what is so intriguing about watching Jason Taylor do the same thing that Clyde Drexeler and Emmit Smith already did?-lol Can't believe this show is not played out yet

That is ballroom dancing Solomon. The same dances are done in any ballroom dancing championship. That is what DWTS is modeled after, those competitions. You can't change the dances. You can't suddenly throw in disco (such as the latin hustle) or any other style of dance. As a matter of fact, if you have ever paid attention to the oldest judge, he will criticize the dancers sometimes when they interject some dance move or some style of dancing that is NOT BALLROOM DANCING. If the dancers don't stick with the style of ballroom dancing such as the Cha Cha, their scores will suffer.

I am such a fan of the show and know the style of dances so well that I now notice the errors the dancers (usually the celeb) makes when they do something they aren't supposed to or they mess up on their footwork.

The purpose of the competition is to see who can master all the dances the way they are supposed to be done.

I agree that Dancing with the stars is pure crap. Are these people even "stars" who do it? It still gets good ratings, but the ratings are down for it, which is good. It's a total chick show Solomon, so why even watch it?

I don't get the deal with Dancing With The Stars is either.

Have you seen Paula's recent music video? You can tell the women is heavily medicated when they show her looking at the camera, she doesn't look right.

rofl, I know. There might be two somewhat famous people each season. Most time they get also-rans and people who were on a show with someone famous or related to someone famous (Drew Lachey anyone? Yea, he was in 98 Degrees with his brother, but nobody would remember him outside of diehard boyband fans if not for his big bro). I remember when John O'Hurley really milked his involvement for the first season because that's all he has to milk outside of the fact he was in a dozen or so Seinfeld episodes, and lets face it, Seinfeld's no longer recent.

I'd rather watch the celebs on DWTS then a bunch of wannabe pop stars on American Idol who get to the top and then two years later, their record company dumps them. Talk abt being a has been. That show is what needs to be taken off the air. So in a way, I agree, Paula needs to be dumped, with the whole show.

She is definitely on something and I can't put my finger on it. I wonder if she is taking so many painkillers to deal with her chronic pain a la Jeff Conaway.

Still, it is obvious her slurred speech and her eyes looking like she is not there, signal something is not right.

I don't watch AI anymore, but when I have seen Paula being interviewed or they show her on some show, she is not the same perky Paula from back in the 80's.

Either that or she sleeps with the contestants.
