Dancing with the Ordinary People

I am addicted to Dancing with the Stars. And for reasons I can’t explain, I really want to be a contestant on this show. I know what you’re thinking, “this woman hasn’t got a chance…she’s not a star, she’s just an ordinary person.”  It’s true. I am quite precisely just an ordinary person. I have an ordinary life, which I live each day in an extremely ordinary way. I’ve never walked on the moon, won Olympic gold, or starred in a blockbuster movie. I’ve never headlined the cast of a Broadway play, hosted a talk show, and I am not the daughter, mother, wife (or even ex-wife) of somebody famous. I’m not an aging entertainer, a has been, nor a wannabe. In fact, I simply am an ordinary person.  So I will write about my ordinary experiences.  I will share my ordinary thoughts, and make ordinary observations. Maybe, just maybe, some ABC executive will happen upon my blog, find it interesting, and think to himself, “Hmmm. Having an ordinary person on the show might be good for ratings.”  In which case, this ordinary woman just might be given the very extraordinary chance to dance among the stars.

  1. I agree…what a fabulous concept…why didn’t Simon Fuller think of this before??? You sound like the PERFECT contestant….good luck…I will be looking for you!!!!

  2. I’ve met a bunch of those celebrities, they’re no different than us. We (ordinaries) have something to do with it….Looking forward to more ordinary posts! 🙂

  3. Well, your athletic abilities are anything but ordinary so I think you make a great candidate. That aside, six degrees of separation — someone out here in your readership will have a connection!

  4. I’m a big fan of the show too and often fantasize if I had the opportunity to be on “Dancing with the Stars”, would I be able to endure the endless hours of practice and discipline it takes to not make a total fool of myself on live television? I think not, but you on the other hand with your gymnastic background just may have a shot at the mirror ball trophy !!! You know what they say: “if you want something bad enough anything is possible” …and you know what else they say: “better you then me”. New fantasy of mine, to be in the audience rooting you on from the sidelines!!!
