Dancing with the Stars

I can't believe it!!! I was so mad last night when Sabrina was voted off Dancing with the Stars. Ray was furious too. The show ended at 10pm and at 10:02 my phone rang. I answered it, "I can't ....ing believe what just happened!" I knew the person calling was a friend who had also watched the show. All my friends know not to call on Monday or Tuesday nights when Dancing with the Stars is on. It was Cindy calling. She and Michael were in disbelief as well.

This morning Ray commented here that he was so very disappointed with the whole show. He went on to criticize and blame the producers and judges for ruining the show because they don't help the audience understand the importance of voting for the best dancer, not the most well known star.

Having watched the judges give feedback week after week, it's clear the 3 judges have a problem (fear of) being honest with the BIG stars, the older folk, about how poor their performances are. The judges pussy foot around with their people pleasing comments like star struck teenagers, or better yet, fearful the stars won't like them or won't do for them at some later date if they hurt their feelings. Why don't they tell it like it is....you are too old and not good enough to still be in this contest.

Damn, this pisses me off "they" (the produces/judges and anyone else involved with the show) should not put personalities before principles and not compromise the integrity of the contest.

This photo of a friend's Xmas decorations has nothing to do with this post other than to
alter my attitude:)
