It couldn’t have been a shock, considering her lack of name recognition, when Elisabetta Canalis was eliminated from “Dancing With the Stars” Tuesday night. She might have improved, and the judges seemed pleased(ish) with her performance, but it seems no one could muster enough interest to care about someone whose main claim to fame is being George Clooney’s ex.
The show ignored the thing that everyone was talking about Tuesday. Yes, it was Nancy Grace, but it wasn’t her dancing
While TMX was reporting what she puts in her bra (lucky charms from her kids), the strenuous dancefloor moves had Grace nearly coming out of her dress. The folks at DWTS covered for and minimized the wardrobe malfunction admirably, but screen grabs were still prevalent on Tuesday. Grace has claimed it wasn’t what it looked like, and the results show wisely made no mention of it. Check out Entertainment Tonight’s video report on it.
But what about the dancing? Two words: polite jive. Well, at least until Grace’s alleged wardrobe malfunction. Jive’s a pretty demanding thing, and nobody really nailed it.
Carson Kressley’s Pee Wee Herman-esque outfit and campy routine were cute, but it got a little sloppy. Still, it was one of the night’s more entertaining moments. Grace, too, held her own, garnering a score of 21 and some encouraging words from the judges. Rob Kardashian was noticeably better, too, and the judges commented that it looked like he was having fun. How far will fun get him, though?
J.R. Martinez, Ricki Lake and Kristin Cavallari, all near the top of the leader board, look like good bets to stick around a while.
Now for the not so good. David Arquette looked like he was having a blast, but I’m not sure it looked like dancing.
Chaz Bono was stiff and in obvious physical pain. I can’t see him making it very far because the competition will just become more physically demanding as it goes on. Bono’s score put him last with the judges, which came as no surprise. He obviously has a fanbase out there, which saved him this week.
