I watched a piece of the final Dancing With The Stars episode. It’s not a show I would normally pay attention to, but it was getting an assload of media attention. I’m pretty sure the producers really didn’t care who won, they were loving the attention they were getting. And rightfully so. The whole idea for them is to make money. You can’t begrudge them that. I was eager to watch Bristol Palin dance for several reasons, mainly because her dancing had stirred so much controversy. But also because of her non athletic build. Am I saying fat people can’t dance? Absolutely not. I grew up in southern Louisiana. There are a lot of heavy set people who can move like nobody’s business. But from what I understand, this competition calls for all sorts of different dancing of way more athletic skills. I know very little about dancing. All I know is what I like to look at. I love aesthetics and beauty. Bristol Palin represented neither. She was about as graceful as a bull in a china cabinet. The other thing about Bristol that I really don’t understand, but is really not her fault, is that the show is called Dancing With the Stars. I have trouble understanding why Bristol Palin is considered a star. If it was called Dancing With the High School Sluts, then she could be on the show. By mentioning that title, I may have given NBC a great idea, or at the very least, Fox. I told you that to tell you this. My real interest was in Jennifer Grey.
I was a big fan of the movie that made her a star, Dirty Dancing. Something else I like about Jennifer is that she’s about my age. I think she might be a couple of years older. Nonetheless, she proves what I have proven over and over on this site when I mention the likes of David Holt and Terry Lentz and several others who are on the north side of 50 years old and still kicking ass and taking names. Too often we have excuses for getting out of shape and gaining weight. Most blame it on their age. My sister in law who I love dearly claims she’s still trying to lose her pregnancy weight. I would believe her, but her youngest kid is 25. At 50 years old, Jennifer Grey is still sporting a six pack. Trust me when I tell you, she didn’t get in shape just for this show. She’s a friend of Serena’s. Jennifer always has a six pack. She never lets herself get out of shape. Jennifer should also be given credit for fighting to the end. According to what I saw on the final show, she was plagued throughout the season with a back injury, and wasn’t even sure if she would compete in the finale. But she figured it out and got it done. Congratulations, Jennifer.
