Dancing with the Talentless

August 31, 2010 - Brandi Bowers

As someone who has taken dance for 8 years and has a love of music & entertainment, you'd think I'd love Dancing with the Stars. Well, not so much. For one thing, I've been on reality overload for quite some time and can only handle so many shows. I like how American Idol can find real, practically unknown talent, & I like the way Celebrity Apprentice shows celebs in a different way than we are used to seeing them. But Dancing with the Stars, this one has just never worked for me.

And, as if it couldn't get any worse, the list for this season's cast has just been announced and is as follows: David Hasselhoff, Brandy, Jennifer Grey, Margaret Cho, Rick Fox, Kurt Warner, Kyle Massey, Florence Henderson, Bristol Palin, Michael Bolton, Audrina Patridge, & Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. Aside from last year's Kate Gosselin, I don't think they could have put together a more irrelevant cast.

Hasselhoff should have stayed on Amercia's Got Talent. I liked Brandy in the 90's, which was quite some time ago. Jennifer Grey hasn't done anything since Dirty Dancing. Margaret Cho is a weird choice, but she's not bad & does have a decent show on Lifetime right now. I had to look up who Rick Fox, Kurt Warner & Kyle Massey were, although I thought Warner was a football player. Don't get me started on the Palin's and their unending 15 minutes of fame. Michael Bolton,  insert jokes here. Audrina Patridge, I'm not a teen, so I never watched the Hills.

The only two worth being excited over are Mrs. Brady & The Situation (sure, Jersey Shore is a train wreck, but it's pretty popular right now & you know you've watched it at least once). Ok, so maybe I'm being a little harsh, the show does receive pretty good ratings. What do you think of this lineup? Are you excited to see this season?
