Well, that didn't take long! Just the other day, the word on the street was that former BachelorSean Lowe was spreading his diva-licious attitude all over the set of Dancing with the Stars. While the gossip was *slightly* far fetched, Sean is laughing off the claims that he thinks he "makes" the reality competition.
At the other end of the entitled dancing spectrum is fresh faced Disney teen Zendaya Coleman, but of course, she changed the game this week as well when she put her synchronized foot in her perfectly pouty mouth. Confused? Read on!
The stars and pros have several weeks to get that first dance together. Then, the stars have only five days to learn dance number two, and it usually shows. For some, however, just getting that first dance out of the way is all it takes to ditch the nerves and get their dance on. This week's scores and votes will be combined with the votes and scores from last week's season 16 premiere, and then we'll say goodbye to one star on tonight's results show.
Jive: Sean and Peta's lifeguard and beach babe inspired jive is corny and under whelming. I find that I'm way more fascinated by Peta's high-rise bathing suit than I am by Sean's anything footwork. A color-coordinated Catherine is in the audience again. Sean's Bachelor fan base will keep him going for a few weeks, but he has absolutely no shot at taking home the trophy.
While Dancing with the Stars was the most-watched show of the night, with 16.76 million viewers, the season premiere ratings were down 11% compared to last spring's season 14 premiere. Next week's premiere of The Voice should prove to be interesting. I'm curious to learn how many viewers stick with DWTS and how many leave to check out the new mentors on The Voice.
While Lisa isn't complaining about being "wrapped around" her "gorgeous partner" Gleb Savchenko, she revealed that the most enjoyable part of Dancing with the Stars is the camaraderie that she and her competitors share.
My mother always told me that good things happen to good people. When I would complain that the mean girl always seemed to get the dream guy or the amazing job, she would remind me that mean people are often miserable no matter what successes they have. She'd say we should feel bad for those who are so hateful and be thankful to have love in our hearts and not be one of those people. Snarking on reality stars aside, I think it's sound advice…and she was right! Just look at Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!
Brandi Glanville has struggled to get back on her feet after a nasty and public divorce, and she's tried to be as straightforward and honest (if not totally brash) when it comes to her life. Her frankness and sharp tongue have proven to be Brandi's greatest allies as she gets the last laugh on her haters. Likewise, Adrienne Maloof, who had me fooled season one, has channeled her inner mean girl, and it's not very becoming.
Not surprisingly, Lisa is approaching the reality competition like she does everything else in her life…with hard work and her biting wit. Oh, and Giggy of course! She'll be dancing with new pro Gleb Savchenko, and from the looks of things, Lisa is fierce as ever!
Mr. Three Back-to-Back Reality Shows, aka Sean Lowe, is now crying about the fact that he can't go out with his buddies without being hounded by fans. Well, when you flaunt your rock-hard abs on TV every Monday night, these things are bound to happen.
"I've always said that I'm not looking for fame," Sean said. "In fact, I don't like the fame aspect of being the Bachelor or being on Dancing With the Stars. I wish I could – you know, I can't go out in Dallas with my buddies anymore because I'm left taking pictures the whole night because people – you know, they recognize me and they want to take pictures."
