Given the outspoken nature of some of the rumored celebs, I can see why the producers think they might strike gold if they let the couples stay on the dance floor and get their scores, but I really hope there's no forced, awkward catfights from the contestants and judges. Again, seems too much like Idol and might just be that-awkward. Especially if the celeb in question embarrasses their partner. And obviously being a diva and complaining or putting your foot in mouth didn't bode well for Shannon Elizabeth or Aaron Carter. And sometimes the show expects too much of a celeb's alleged outspoken and tough as nails, speaks their mind personality (see Debi Mazar).
If the Kate rumor is true, apparently she has no problem leaving her kids to be in LA now since that's where she's apparently rehearsing I think with heels she might be a little too tall for Louis. Maybe she'll get the new guy, unless the show wants to break him in as a regular and make sure he lasts a long time. Anna D. didn't go over so well last season in the beginning. Since Tony has his wife and kids on the East Coast, I wonder if they'll get paired up The show may think they're going to draw large crowds in with someone like Kate, and I can't deny that she probably won't get people tuned in. But how they can be sure those people will stick around once she's gone, or that she won't in turn turn viewers off? I'm sure she'll last awhile; I doubt they'd let her go first. I'm sure Jonathan will take comfort that he won't be the obvious one to get stuck with her
I never disliked Shannon, but she's not my favorite, either. She's done well for herself and is probably one of the more visable, active 90210 alumni. I actually think her and Mark would make a platonic pair, because we know how he is when his partner isn't up to the ringer status of Kristi and Shawn, and Shannon probably isn't one that will hold back. Besides that, I can't see her letting him get away with doing a lindy hop routine like he did with Shawn, especially the outfits
I'll give the show the benefit of the doubt that it really wasn't between Maks or Karina (but I'm also in camp Maks so between the two, I'd definitely side with my Russian eyecandy ) Maks's former partner, Tia Carerre, said that Karina chose not to do the show because she couldn't be in the same studio with Maks and didn't want to work anywhere near him. However, there was a rumor going back to the early part of Feb. that Karina was returning, and both she and Lacey had said they'd be back. Maybe the show decided to call their bluff and turned them down? Either way, with the exception of not having Kym (don't turn into a diva now Kym! I know you guys are underpaid but you got a good thing going), I'm happy with the female pros that were brought back, especially Anna T., who I figured was on the chopping block. I'm just hoping it's finally Edyta's turn to win. I wouldn't be surprised if next season, she either gets cut or decides to take a break from the show. She's been mentioning that she and Alec are anxious to start a family.It's a shame we have to choose between between Maks and Karina. But, I guess it usually happens when there are bitter breakups. (sniff), but I'm definitely, team Maks....but I kinda like the b*tchiness Karina brings to the ballroom.
