    As for the 'courage to take on this challenge', and this (natch!), but dancing, even on TV, doesn't take courage. There are a lot of things in this life that do, and dancing isn't one of them.

    I don't know about anyone else but I would need a ton of courage to go on televsion in front of an audience (filled with many celebrities) & millions of tv viewers and dance...the thought horrifies me!

    I thought Holly did really good considering she only had a few more days than Melissa...I commend both of them for having the guts to do this in such a short amount of time.

    its a significant difference. its like the difference between NBA dancers and NFL cheerleaders... different technique. cheerleaders cheer and dancers dance

    Nancy O'dell chats w/Mel & Tony (and the other couples):

    Dancing With the Stars | Access Hollywood - Celebrity News, Photos & Videos

    Mel's asked about the "no more reality tv" comment.

    She said it well, I think the point is that she didn't approach DWTS to do more reality tv, they approached her. I'd call it fate as I really think Melissa belongs on camera...she's such a natural IMO

    Color me confused. I always viewed cheerleaders as Rah Rah Rah! Where as dancers chake their thing and get groovy.

    I loved Melissa..and the peeps went wild. I do think this gal will go pretty far in the competition. She is good and her fans love her.

    It's very ironic, isn't it? She could feel the love from everyone..That is a good thing.

    Just wanted to state that I studied ballet for 10 years and found I could ballroom dance with hardly any problems. It takes the same intense focus and grace. I believe her leg extensions will be outstanding, and her arm work excellent. The only problem will be her positioning her feet properly.

    The intense cheerleading experience with jazz moves, etc. will lend itself to handling the jive, two-step easily.

    Wish her luck, but she does have an advantage.
