It’s been what seems like a very long time coming, but finally it’s here…the Dancing With the Stars’ Semi-Finalist Results show. No surprise that Ricki Lake is on top of the leader board, but it was sad to see an ankle injury force J.R. Martinez into third due to less than his normally stellar performances.
The tongues are still wagging about Rob Kardashian’s booty shaking samba that garnered Kimmie’s bro his first ten of the season. Not surprisingly, it’s the judge’s encore dance of the evening and Rob and partner Cheryl Burke are highlighted. The pair even won first place in the cha-cha relay. First on the chopping block, it is revealed that Rob will be dancing in the finals.
Cobra Starship performs with Sabi. I had no idea they sang this song… where have I been? Next up, Hope Solo and Maks Chmerkovskiy’s Monday night is revisited. As you recall, Maks had yet another tiny tiff with judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and Hope’s attitude was less than sportsmanlike… just as it is when it’s revealed she is in jeopardy. Did she just fist pump?
Ricki Lake’s amazing Monday night is remembered with Ricki scoring even more tens. J.R. slipped from last week due to a noticeable ankle injury, gaining scathing commentary from Len Goodman before being highly praised for his second dance despite a botched lift.
Noooo! J.R. is sent to the bottom two while Ricki waltzes into the finals. Poor J.R. looks hopeful, gracious,and nervous, while Hope’s smile looks like she’s super close to killing someone. She’s eliminated, and I will say that she exits with class. Maks apologizes for not being a better partner for her, and she reminds us that he’s a producer of the show. Okey doke.
Fast forward to today and UsWeekly is reporting Hope acted like a sore loser backstage. According to the mag, Hope, 30, was sour backstage and refused to do press following her elimination! Wowzers.
While Hope’s fellow DWTS contestants spoke to media outlets backstage, Hope gave only one TV interview, refused all other press opportunities and burst into tears.
Even worse, in a video recap of Monday’s performances, Hope complained about her scores: “Sevens? The same thing I got in week one. Kiss my booty,” she said. Hope and partner Maks were also heard swearing at the judges while they waited for their second set of scores: “F— ‘em,” they said with Hope refusing to look at the judge’s table.
Perhaps her partner’s bad attitude has been rubbing off on her?
IS HOPE A SORE LOSER? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MAKS’ CONTINUED AGGRESSIVENESS TOWARDS THE JUDGES? WHO DO YOU WANT TO WIN THE MIRROR BALL TROPHY?
