I loved how Chris asked Len how HIS "chesticles" looked after Len remarked on Kendra's.
Did you see them last night in an interview? I think it was Joy Behar. Anyway, Cheryl said that she did not agree with Chris Brown performing on the show.

I don't know, but I would assume that Chris Brown signed a contract with the producers of DWTS to appear on the show.
If so, maybe DWTS could not cancel out on Chris Brown because he trashed the dressing room of another program.
I am not speaking of his behavior - I am speaking of legal obligations.

My guess is that they didn't cancel him because they knew he would bring in big ratings.
They don't really have the most exciting and / or controversial contestants this season.
Having Chris Brown on guaranteed talk / ratings for the show.
The Disney channel is not known for being purveyors of good taste or taking the high road.

I would think that there's probably a loophole in there that, if TPTB decided they want to cancel for their own good, they could. I might be wrong, though. It did surprise me that they didn't in Chris's case, but apparently if they went for ratings it did the trick. The results show had around 18 million viewers, which for a drawn out, typically drama free, non-suspenseful hour was pretty good. I'm just sorry if the ratings were so high it had to do with him. The casual viewer who doesn't keep up on the news might have thought Tom would interview him, or something would be mentioned about the GMA incident. My sister thought they'd give him the platform to address it. I'm sure that's all they were after, which I'll again say is pretty sad that someone like him having a complete meltdown to the extent he did is considered good TV.
I'm sure Cheryl's issue probably stemmed from Chris's past with Rihanna and the domestic violence charge. The GMA incident didn't exactly help paint him in a better light.
Going back to Chris, I'm slightly disappointed he has the rumba this week. That dance bores me to tears and I would have loved to have seen him have something that carried more personality with it. I got excited when I heard SR had the paso and was hoping Chris would, too. Regardless, Cheryl did a much better job adding more content to their routine for the quick step, and I hope she keeps it up. It's exciting this season that so many people aren't ringers but have huge potential to get better. He surprised me from last week already.
