DWTS -- America Night
American Fright Might Be A Better Description
Last week they announced they'd be doing America Night in honor of Patriot Day. I have to say when I think the words America and patriotism the songs: Viva La Vegas, New York, New York and Sweet Home Alabama don't come to mind.
Then there seemed to be some kind of knocker war going on. It's pretty commonplace for Brooke to be exposing herself, but she was defeated by Cheryl Burke's bosom busting outfit. It's pretty bad when stodgy Len Goodman even mentions she's got her majestic mountains on display. If I'd taped the show I could have done a video to the Rocky theme with the Burke vs. Burke bosom bout. Kudos to the men for keeping their eyes where they should.
Bruno, of course, was Bruno. There was the perfect set-up to have the line of the night when Bruno was telling Ralph Macchio he wanted sex. I would have fallen on the floor laughing if Ralph would have replied, "Sorry, Bruno, I just don't swing that way." It was just the perfect set-up for that comment. Tom B got in on the action when backstage Ralph said maybe he'd take Bruno out for dinner to get better scores and Tom zinged back, "Remember, Ralph, Bruno doesn't just want dinner." And that in a nutshell is why viewers love Tom and hate Brooke.
I can't say I really cared for any of the dances. That music just didn't go with the dances. Chris and Cheryl's Viennese waltz to "America the Beautiful" was just hard to watch. Maybe it would have been better if they'd done it to "American Pie".
I was also curious why Kirstie Alley flounced away after Chris and Cheryl did their dance. It wasn't like she was going to perform next. Speaking of Kirstie, she kind of seems to have reached her peak and I wouldn't be surprised if she got sent home sooner rather than later.
