    Oh my man, Tony, I love him, but he needs to shave. He looks like a bum in that picture. Not his best look, I don't think.
    I hope this is a great season for Tony. It looks like she has plenty of acting experience, but does she have any natural dance ability?

    I'm very excited for these two too! The only thing that could make this better is if Maks came back and he was her partner.

    I just love her! I know that she can dance fairly well. I remember reading an article about her and her husband doing alot of salsa dancing.

    That's right! I had forgotten about that. Another good sign for her is that after everything that has happened with her and the Church of Scientology, and to some degree the fallout of being fired from The Talk last year, she's got a lot of drive to use the show as a vehicle to win fans and give her career a kickstart. I wish she wasn't going up against so many people who have song/dance performing backgrounds. It kind of feels like a season filled with ringers. But I hope she does well. If no one blows me away with dancing from the start, she'll be getting my votes early on based on likability.

    I guess I am in team careless but now I understand why she renounced Scientology. Dodn't she report the police to say the leader's wife was "missing"?

    Yes. First she made a big deal over it at a wedding, and was required to go through auditing, or whatever they call counseling for her behavior. She decided after a while that she didn't want to be counseled for saying things didn't make sense so she left the church very publicly. Shortly after that, she filed a missing persons report which the LA police declared a closed case fairly quickly.
