I haven't watched Dancing with the Stars the last couple of weeks. Oh, I still vote - I just log on Monday nights and place all my allowed votes for Clyde Drexler . . . But I watched tonight . . . only 2 women remain - Heather Mills and Laila Ali.

Tonight's highlights? Clyde is told he is the worst dancer left in the competition - like that matters - he still is pulling in the vote for the athlete bloc.

Heather danced with a short dress that showed off the prosthetic - it was kind of interesting, and I do give her credit for being able to pull this off . . . until the end when she tries to balance on one leg - the fake one - and falls on her ass.

Odds on favorite Joey Fatone is dancing his first slow dance - the rumba - his friends Lance Bass and Alfonso something from Fresh Prince stop by rehearsals. Lance says that Joey needs to "keep a straight face" during this dance . . . 2 of the judges say Joey's dance was "too feminine". Seriously, these guys just can't win. If they are going to ask them to shimmy and shake while wearing tight polyester, I'm not sure it's fair to accuse them of being not masculine enough.

Laila has a suspiciously deep voice that is a tad disconcerting, but she and Maksim dance the sexiest dance of the night.

Apolo Anton Ohno and his teenage dance partner try to move from cute to sexy, and they pull it off in a Smurf-like/kiddie porn sort of way. The judges give them perfect 10s.

What cruel, cruel wardrobe mistress put Billy Ray Cyrus in a lavender satin sleeveless blouse? BRC is one of the celebs who is the perfect candidate for DWTS - - even though his music and acting are pretty iffy, he will come away from this show with more fans just based on the likability factor. Nevertheless, he proves that Clyde may not be the worst dancer.

Nanners and Noodles wanna go pee, so I gotta go . . .

Addendum - Clyde bit the dust - who to vote for now? Probably Laila Ali, Joey Fatone or Apolo Ohno.

I don't watch the show regularily, but seem to catch a segment here and there. So far, I have only seen Heather Mills for about 10 seconds and was able to switch the channel.

I do like Edyta Sliwinska. She very attractive and an amazing dancer.

I'm surprised that Heather Mills is still in it. Is she really a good dancer?

flix - the professional gals have amazing figures . . .

Pru - She's ok - she does pretty well on the waltz type dances, but doesn't have a lot of rhythm to pull off the sexier numbers

Hilarious that they dressed Billy Ray in purple satin!

I'm not making a veiled joke here: I forget, is Joey Fatone officially out of the closet?

I saw a YouTube clip of Heather's dance and falling. Question: why not balance on her complete leg? Was this planned to generate sympathy? Inquiring minds want to know.

Apolo is certainly a good dancer, but he is also a professional athlete (like Laila) so I would expect them to excel in a physical competition. Also, Joey Fatone is a professional dancer so he has an advantage as well. My personal favorite dance team is Ian and Cheryl. They have so much personality and give each dance 100% effort. Ian is not a professional dancer or athlete, but yet he has all the talent of the rest of them -- last week he received six straight "9s" from the judges. I hope he surprises everyone by giving his best performances in the next two weeks and capturing the trophy. If you like Ian and Cheryl, please do your part to vote for them on Monday -- vote 4 times for each phone number and 4 times online. If you like Ian and Cheryl, please do your part to vote for them on Monday -- vote 4 times for each phone number and 4 times online. Also, Ian has really cool videos on his websites at and and there you can sign up to receive his fun email blasts.
