Who is out second on “Dancing With the Stars” season 13?

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.

Models have never done well in this show, and Elisabetta was no exception. No flair at all, which probably speaks to their (models) overall lack of performance experience.

And to both Chaz and Elisabetta, if you have physical problems (bad knees and shoulders, respectively), maybe you should politely decline the invitation to join the cast of DWTS! I could see a deliberate attempt to minimize shoulder turns with Elisabetta’s routine this week, which cried out for them.

Finally, Nancy Grace continues to be horrendous on the dance floor. The mere fact that she wasn’t in the bottom two speaks loudly to her fan base (whoever they are), because it sure wasn’t her hoofing.

Who cares? This show is so embarrassingly cheesy.

It is ENTERTAINMENT.

And if you don’t care, why are you watching?

What’s all the bad comments about Nancy Grace? Hr Monday night dance was the tops. She certainly displayed her determination and tenacity. She should improve every week, and while J.R. Martinez is a natural, watch out for Nancy Grace. Looks can be deceiving, and she certainly has the will to get better every week.

Will doesn’t overcome a genuine lack of talent, really bad footwork, and no natural grace.

She’s a lump with five barely moving appendages.

All appear clumsy this season. Chaz was selected to make a point, it was known that the issues of bad knees is a handicap for the demands. His intention was not to win, Cher is also aware of knees.

I loved Bruno comments to Chaz about looking like an Ewok dancing with Princess Leia. He/she does look like an Ewok!

Although I am not a proponent of gender-switching, I give Chaz kudos for getting out there and proving himself, and telling the doubting world “screw you”. You go gurl…er, guy.

Is Nancy Grace out? If so, I’m glad. They had to have a special wide-angle lens just to squeeze her double wide, lard a$$ into the frame. Disgusting.

Lot of drama during practice, but at the end they ALL say they had lot of fun…Another sample of a “politicall correctness”…

Well, can’t say I was disappointed with George’s ex being eliminated. Just hoping that Chaz goes next week.

nancy’s pretty hot if she would lose about 50 pounds—maybe she can work it off with her dance partner, off stage.

I find it amusing their are so many blogs saying support Bono because he is transgender. Isn’t that the exact same thing and voting against him because he is transgender. If you vote for anything other than talent you are discriminating.

@Producer: If you had read the article that you spent time to comment on, then you would have noticed that Nancy Grace was not eliminated. I’m no particular fan of hers, but at least she can read.

DWTS has jumped the shark...

I’m not usually a fan of DWTS or Nancy Grace’s TV show, but I do love watching her move in those costumes. Those of you who criticize her body don’t know a real woman when you see one. There are two big reasons to keep her in the competition, and she gave us a quick glimpse of one of them when she performed.
