Readers, I assume you're all familiar with Dancing With The Stars. I watched the first season because it was on during the summer. I missed the next season. But, I watched the 3rd season featuring Emmitt Smith. Why? Because he's hot! Break me off a piece of that! Rarrr. Anyhoo...
The show itself isn't that great. Once they moved it from summer programming to the regular tv show season...I lost interest. I'm not wasting my time on that when so many other shows are on. No way! Put it back on in the summer, I'd probably start watching it again.
The thing about this show is that it's called "Dancing With The Stars" but in reality they aren't really "stars." I've tuned in once or twice in recent seasons and I couldn't tell you who the professional dancer was and who the star was. That's how recognizable those stars are!
But, the show sunk to a new low, if you ask me! They had on Heather Mills McCartney. She has an amputated leg. It's a dancing show. No leg... Dancing... No leg... Dancing show... No leg. ..Dancing with the no leg stars... Dancing... No leg...Dancing...no leg.
I get it. We're an Equal Opportunity society. Everyone is equal! We don't discriminate. The thing is...it's not fair. If you take a person with two legs and a person with one leg and put them in the same competition...of DANCING...guess who will fair better? Someone with two legs. You either end up embarrassing them horribly, or the judges end up making allowances for them and then judge them accordingly. Which is completely unfair to the other competitors!
It's like on America's Next Top Model when they persist in having a "Full-Figured" girl or two competing with the "normal" size girls. They are never going to book the same jobs. It's ridiculous!
I have to admit (don't judge me) I watched some of Heather Mills McCartney's performances. Why? To see if her fake leg would fall off. I admit it! I did. Quit judging me.
And do you know why ABC had Heather Mills McCartney on Dancing With The Stars? Ratings. Because people would tune in to watch a lady with no leg dance. And some people, like me, would tune in to see if the leg fell off.
To top that...ABC has come up with a new star to put on the show. What tops a one legged woman? A blind man! Yes, Dancing With The Stars is in discussions with Stevie Wonder to be on the next season!
I've seen Stevie Wonder perform on t.v. before. He dances to his own music. Do you know how he dances? He sways back and forth in one spot. BECAUSE HE'S BLIND. Doing more than swaying in one spot presents a myriad of problems. Because he's blind. He can't see where he's going. He could go crowd surfing without even knowing it!
And they want to book him as a dancer...for ratings. Shame on you ABC. Shame on you.
And shame on me, because I'll tune on to see him bump into the judges table.
