    There are a number of real astronauts who never went up for one reason or another. The one that first comes to mind is Deke Slayton, one of the first 7 Mercury astronauts. Before he could go on a flight, he was diagnosed with some kind of heart murmur (or something similar) and was not permitted to go into space. He remained with NASA for years, but on the ground. They still include him among the first seven astronauts.

    It's also interesting that "professional" astronaut can be applied to somone who PAID to be an astronaut as opposed to one who WAS paid to be one. It doesn't matter, but it is meaningless hype, imo.

    Whether or not he paid, he did actually go through the training required to be an astronaut. He is certified by both NASA and the Russian Space Program. Technically, that makes him an astronaut whether or not he has actually gone on a mission.

    I dub this ABC promo photo "Lacey and Lacier"!

    Come on. It's worth at least a chuckle.

    I don't dislike Lacey, but all I could think was "I wonder if her hair still stinks".

    Re: Lance Bass - Season 7

    I started out liking Lacey because I loved Heidi so much on her season of So You Think You Can Dance but she started annoying me towards the end... although it wasn't on the hate level by any means. However, I also had to wonder if her hair still stinks! LOL.

    I don't remember anything about Bass or the group he was in, never was a fan of that style of music back then or now. I do hope though, that they can incorporate some of the moves that I like about the Schwimmer routines and I am happy for her (or any of the kids from SYTYCD) that can take that exposure and parlay it into something else.

    That promo pick had me laughing for a while. It's so "Lacey" I guess you could say

    Re: Lance Bass - Season 7

    I've always been a big Lance fan and while I hope he does well, dancing has never been his strong point. He joined the group based on his voice and REALLY struggled with dancing. In interviews even before they were huge, he's admitted what a horrible dancer he is and how he lacked rhythm. They had to teach him even the basics of dancing and, when learning choreography, he needed a lot of extra attention and practice just to pull it off. I believe he said it got easier to pick up as the years went on but even in concert videos of their "later" years you could see that he was no where near as talented or natural as the other were. There was still a visible discomfort there at times. As I said, I hope he does well. However, I would not be surprised at all if he does not make it near the finals, either. I think it depends on how easily the other stars take to the choreography and how strong a teacher/leader Lacey is.
