It's always a big help when someone who's been there, done that weighs in. 'Cause, frankly, I was ABSOLUTELY raising eyebrows left, right and center when I heard Shawn was doing this, after bowing out of the Olympics. Even though I know full well that she would NEVER have gotten an insurance clearance to do the show otherwise.
Doesn't make a lick of sense, my thinking on this, but I'll cheerfully plead guilty to that!
I still think that Shawn winning over Gilles robbed Gilles, but Good Luck to her, anyway!
God, knows, I'd rather have her on my screen than Bristol, ANY day of the week!
