Et Tu Tom???

I've mentioned that despite not planning on it, I've started watching Dancing With The Stars again. I tell myself this is only until So You Think You Can Dance comes back on, but I think I'm lying to myself with that one.

Anyway - I was watching it tonight and while most of the time I am amused at Tom Bergeron, tonight he made a pretty bad faux pas. One of the judges - Bruno - the 'animated' one was going on as he usually does and Tom made an off the cuff remark about 'trashy romance novels'. Grrrrrr!! When oh when will the stereotyping stop?????

I have a bet going on with a girl from work who also watches it. I suggested $5,000 but she nixed that and instead we settled that the 'losing' chosen dancer has to buy the 'winning' dancer a coffee. She is going for Melissa of Bachelor fame, whereas I chose Gilles - the naked Guy from Sex and The City. To prove I'm going to be getting that free cup of coffee me thinks - this was last weeks dance - The Argentine Tango. Prepare to swoon.



And....since they say a picture is worth a thousand words - heh heh heh, I think these five
should get me that $5,0
00 I suggested. So if you watch DWTS - vote for Cheryl and Gilles and help me get that free coffee!!

HA! I wondered if anyone would say something about Tom's "trashy books" comment. We should send him a copy of Candy & Sarah's book.

And Gilles. He's the Man!

That tango was smokin' and then tonight's paso doble? oh yeah, baby.

Kristie (J) said...

Phyl: *g* Indeed we should. Let the wrath of the insulted romance reader fans descend upon his head. And this from a guy who hosts a trashy reality show that shows often real stupid videos that aren't funny and at times even bordering on cruel. For Shame Tom!!

Nikki: How could Len only give them a 9 I ask you?!?!?! That Paso Doble was INDEED another smokin' dance!! I don't think I've ever seen a better 'star' dancer - certainly NOT a hawtter one *g*.

Hi Kristie!

Okay, okay, I'll vote, can I make one of those into a lovely wall poster?

If I lived in the US, I would vote Kristie :) And weirdly, while I'm typing this, our version of Dancing with the Stars has just started!

And I remember Bruno (when I lived in the UK I watched Strictly Come Dancing). Bruno is hilarious :)

And those photos.... *fans self*

I had quit watching it last season, but I did end up watching last night and Melissa & Gilles are my two favorites. I'd be happy to see either one win it.

Barbara said...

Wow...yeah...he's something else!

Kristie (J) said...

Barbara: I think he can definitely get me a free cup of coffee - heh heh heh (that was a dirty laugh by the way - in case you missed that)

MsMoonlight: It is close to call between them so maybe it's just as well we didn't bet $5,000 *snerk*. When I first heard the line-up of dancers, I wasn't going to watch it - but now I'm glad I did! And I'll be even more glad as I eat the muffin.

Orannia: Heh heh heh (that's another dirty laugh by the way) I was fanning myself too while looking for them. I did find a clip from Sex and the City where he was showering in the altogether, but it was very fuzzy so I didn't put it here - not to mention it was a language I didn't understand so except for the video (which didn't) it went over my head.

Dottie: I sent my coworker who I'm in the bet with, a DWTS trash talk email this morning - but as she isn't a sports fan, and very nice to boot, I don't think she really understood the concept of trash talk.
And a nice full-sized poster would be very nice indeed wouldn't it? And as I give her my coffee order - it will be extra large - I shall be quietly thanking you ;-}

OMG, too funny-- I have virtually the same blog up right now about Gilles. The same pictures and everything! Mine's from Monday as well-- hilarious how the two of us watched DTWS, swooned over Gilles, and ran straight to the computer. ;-)

I also caught Tom's comment... so lame.

Gilles is the best thing to happen to that show. He gets my vote every week. He is hot, sexy, and a perfect dancer.

Kristie (J) said...

Cheri: And his little boy is adorable too! I figure I have that coffee in the bag - in the cup rather *g* He IS the perfect dancer isn't he??

Julie: LOL - You know that expression Great Minds? I think we could be in that.
