Michael Bolton, one of the few Dancing with the Stars legitimate “stars” was eliminated this week. Okay, so he’s no Baryshnikov, but Bruno didn’t need to be so catty either. At least Bolton’s a real honest to goodness star, a talented singer, songwriter and musician. I was sorry to see him go for that reason alone. I really don’t have a problem with the smattering of “stars-once-removed” who contend for the mirrored disco ball trophy each season. Folks like Laila Ali, Heather Mills (the ex Mrs. McCartney), and Bristol Palin simply do not bother me for some reason. My pet peeve is that regular ordinary people who have not an ounce of talent (like yours truly) get to be on the show (and I don’t). The name of the show is DANCING WITH THE STARS not DANCING WITH THE ORDINARY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT AN OUNCE OF TALENT! (Here comes the green-eyed monster.) I mean, come on! If you’re going to let one regular Joe chasse’ around the dance floor, you’ve got to let the rest of us have a go at it.
Recently, I heard some one comment that nowadays reality television and YouTube make it easy for every Tom, Dick, and Harry to become famous. How else could it be that Kate Gosselin and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino have become common household names? Kate Plus Eight, Jerseyshore, The Real Housewives of Atlanta…I am a real housewife of Atlanta – THE REAL THING – and you don’t see me being catapulted into fame! You’ve heard of Style Channel’s Jerseyliscious? Well let me tell you, I AM GOOGLELISCIOUS! Go ahead and Google IYCSSN Rule (I coined that a few posts ago) and see what happens. That’s right, Mr. ABC Television Executive; Just Another Ordinary Day, is smack at the top of the list of websites rendered by that search. So there, I’m creating a brand here, but has anybody from Dancing with the Stars called me about season 12? Nooooo. And while I’m letting off steam I don’t care what anybody says, Bruno needs to get some manners. He was very rude to Michael Bolton on Monday night. Constructive criticism aside, hasn’t he ever heard of the IYCSSN Rule?
SPECIAL NOTE: Thanks to faithful blog follower, Tim. I never would have known about my Googlelisciousness were it not for your comment. Keep reading.
