Remember last week, we left off at Heather and Terry’s house for an end of the summer “Clam Bake without Onion Rings.” Vicki had just recently had a lot of plastic surgery done to her face, her daughter Briana gave birth to the cutest baby boy “Troy” (well, I’m sure he doesn’t hold a candle to BB’s cute little “Jack”), and Gretchen and Tamra are now dressing as the Doublemint Twins everywhere they go. No really, it’s just adorably precious when adult women dress alike, right?
Vicki walks into the brood of vipers sans Brooks because either she doesn’t want him to be around Tamra or because they’ve broken up – it just depends on which face Vicki happens to be talking out of at the time. Unfortunately, Vicki’s face is pretty danged swollen and no amount of badly combed bird’s nest hair will hide it, try as she might. The minute they see Vicki, Heckle and Jeckle (Gretchen and Tamra) immediately commence cackling about, “Look who showed up, cawww cawww!” Tamra pretends to be oh, so worried because the big meanie Vicki is there and they haven’t seen each other since last season wrapped and she might attack her. Right… because Tamra’s the one who was attacked all last season… NOT! That award goes to Alexis – but fear not, according to Heather’s blog, Alexis wasn’t excluded from this particular “Clam Bake,” she just wasn’t included. Now that’s just OC Circlespeak if you ask me…
Okay, back to the land of fruit and nuts… Gretchen, in her very best impression of a mature woman, encourages Tamra to be nice and cordial towards Vicki. So Heckle and Jeckle summon all their earthly strength to put on their smiley plastic faces… oh wait… they’re already wearing them… and civilly greet Vicki and ask her about her new grandbaby… You know, the one they made fun of her having just last week? Vicki assures them that Briana and the baby are doing well. In Vicki’s talking head, she describes that seeing Tamra for the first time is just crap because she’s flashing back to the end of the season party last year which was actually coincidentally held at Heather’s house! Wow… déjà vu! She thinks about all the meanie weenie things Tamra said about Brooks last season behind Vicki’s back, to her face, and around her side to her daughter. Remember on last year’s reunion show that even Briana sided with Tamra against Brooks while sitting on the couch next to Vicki. It was so sad… because it really appeared that Vicki’s own daughter joined forces with evil Tamra against Vicki and said some really mean things against her mom on national TV. I’m no Brooks fan… but c’mon.
Fortunately, like all Bravo shows there is plenty of drink to make the medicine go down… Vicki thanks Heather for having the “clam bake” while Heckle and Jeckle step away to caww about Vicki’s new face. They know she’s had some work done but they don’t know exactly what was done. Tamra caws to Gretchen, “WTF… Are you not in awe like I’m in awe?” They think Vicki is just pretending nothing’s changed… Vicki defiantly states in her talking head, “To everyone who compared my looks to Miss Piggy… now what?” Heather goes on the record to say she thinks that Vicki has had a “little something” done… spoken like the dutiful wife of a plastic surgeon. She goes on to say that if Vicki’s happy, has confidence, and feels good then she’s happy for her. Terry, the plastic surgeon, says that asking someone if they’ve had plastic surgery is like asking your wife if she’s gained weight – you just don’t do it. So instead, he asks Vicki if she’s lost weight, which is a completely ordinary question that the husband of the woman who shoed you out of her home last season would ask you, right? Vicki says she’s lost twelve pounds. Unfortunately, I’ve found them – Evidently, I’m sitting on them right now, but that’s a whole nuther Oprah…
Heather expresses to Vicki that she is sorry about Brooks. Vicki explains that she’s just taking a time-out with Brooks – and seems unsure about the future of their relationship. Gretchen, queen of healthy relationships, thinks that Vicki’s story about breaking-up with Brooks is bologna, but not the Oscar Meyer kind – more like Kim’s pillow kind. Sorry, I’m still not over RHOBH yet… Vicki tells Heather that she and Brooks still talk and occasionally see each other and they’re in a good place. Again, OC Circlespeak.
Eddie, by the way, in an effort to look more manly, has grown more facial hair than I remember him having last season. Alas. Eddie has to tear himself away from the festivities to go speak at a city council meeting to make a plea for construction and parking permit approvals for he and Tamra’s new pretend gym. Tamra, for the 4 billionth time already this seasons, reminds us that she owns 51% of the gym to Eddie’s 49% which makes her the boss… Yeah, that’s gonna work out… At least they’ll have a gym to troll for fresh meat together…
Everyone’s seated around the honkin’ table – Heather, who is seated on her royal throne-sized chair, has invited some other friends and a couple of family members. One of them might have actually been her son – and I would have watched the episode again just to verify that – but frankly Scarlett, I don’t give a darn. As they’re sitting there, awkward silence fills the air. Tamra maturely says that her plan is to just ignore Vicki. Nice. Heather gives a toast expressing thankfulness for having such a nice table of friends and family to celebrate the ending the summer. Cheers!
Since Eddie has long since left the scene, Heather decides to grill Tamra about potential wedding dates. Tamra uncomfortably responds that they’re trying to get the business started… After all, they’ve only been engaged for 8 months – Yes, you’ve been engaged for 8 months and have yet to set a date. In Tamra’s talking head, she blames her fiancé for them not having a wedding date set yet. You didn’t hear it from me, but allegedly, there are rumors that Tamra allegedly may not be the gender of his choice, allegedly – and anyway, he technically can’t get married since same sex marriages are not yet legal in the state of California – allegedly. (Did I use “allegedly” enough?) Cue the most uncomfortable candlelight bath scene I’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing from last year. Down that full glass of wine, Eddie, before entering…
Heather then gives the lobster-challenged housewives a lesson on eating lobster. She explains that it’s like eating an artichoke… chew chew chew. Naively, she says, “You chew from the outside… and then let it come in your mouth.” Of course Tamra’s mind immediately jumps directly into the gutter, where it currently owns a 3 story condo. Heather stammers that you know what she meant. Vicki, after having evidently completed a year of acting classes at Juilliard, asks with a perfectly straight face, “What I want to know is this: Where are the onion rings?” She insists that she really, really loves onion rings with this kind of food… Heather glares at Terry and burns a hole into his head with her dirty look. Terry innocently denies he said anything to Vicki about having onion rings. Heather menacingly outstretches her long, pointy finger at Terry and says, “Honey, stop it!” I’m dying laughing… and I’m still craving onion rings from last week, dagnabit!
Finally, clams are served at the “clam bake.” Heather clarifies that it’s completely acceptable to eat with your hands at a “clam bake.” She makes Gretchen try a clam and she kind of gags it down. Gretchen, who is seated next to Vicki asks her where Brooks is that evening. Vicki says he’s traveling right now – but they’re kind of on a little break right now anyway. Gretchen snidely says, “but I thought you were so in love!” and Tamra, Miss Buttinski asks from across the mammoth table, “So you’re not together?” Vicki says they’ve taken a little step back in their relationship and that she’s not sure where they’re going.
In a surprising turn of events, Vicki and Gretchen are having a civil conversation. Vicki asks Gretchen how she and Slade made it through the rough times when everyone was on their back about their relationship. Gretchen and Vicki conclude they’ve kind of had a role reversal since now everyone seems to be on Vicki and Brooks’ back about their relationship. Gretchen insists that she just loves Slade and that’s all that really matters. Gag. Gretchen does say that it’s hard – but that really last season Vicki seemed to be moving too fast – and that she and Tamra had her best interest at heart when they gave them a hard time about it. Vicki and Gretchen start laughing together which of course, completely pisses off Tamra. Vicki, seeing Tamra’s green eye of jealousy, jokingly says that Tamra is giving them the evil eye… Rut roh…
Of course, Tamra is cranky that Vicki even brought up the evil eye. Tamra is conveniently forgetting that she had run-ins with both Vicky and Gretchen in two different seasons about the “evil eye.” Vicki, in a moment of honesty, asks Tamra if she thought they were a little off all last season. Tamra said Vicki wasn’t herself – that she was going through a divorce… Tamra confesses that maybe she wasn’t there for Vicki. Vicki quickly confirms that she wasn’t. This makes Tamra get up from the table and storm into the house crying. In her talking head, Vicki said, “Whatever… you want people to follow you – I’m not following you.” Never fear, Heather follows Tamra. Tamra, who hasn’t yet completed her acting classes, makes believe she is crying and says that she doesn’t want to do this again… Heather says that this is the time for her to be mature… that she needs to get it together and then come back out for the rest of dinner. Gretchen asks Vicki if she thinks that she and Tamra’s friendship will ever be okay again. Vicki tells Gretchen she is really guarded.
Heather comes back to awkward weirdness around the table and quickly asks what people thought of the clams? Oh yes, they were good! As if on cue, Terry asks, “Where is the steak?” Heather threateningly waves a leaf of lettuce at him and tells Terry to “Stop!” As the sun goes down, they adjourn downstairs to the rec room to have dessert.
It’s “Date Night” for Alexis and Jim and they’re going to have a dancing lesson. Perhaps this is Alexis’ way of auditioning for “Dancing with the Stars.” Alexis brought her own shoes which for some reason reminds her of the shoes from the Wizard of Oz, except that they’re black and they look nothing like the ruby slippers. Oh, and they’re open toed so we get the chance to criticize Alexis’ choice of painting the toenails on one foot red and the other foot a silverish color. Jim’s disappointed that Alexis didn’t bring him a set of leggings to wear… oh, wait, was that a joke? I almost laughed… well, not really. Alexis tells us that Jim has danced the Lambada. Thanks so much for that mental image… please, pass the eye bleach! The instructor asks whose idea it was for them to come to dance class? Ummm… duh… Alexis thought it would be a good idea. She explained that last year they lost a whole lot of money on a home and Alexis thinks Jim felt like a failure. Evidently, a dance class can cure all of that.… They start the class and for some reason they have to tell Jim that he is supposed to lead… Step slow… quick quick… slow… quick quick… Last year, Alexis made the mistake of trying to talk to Gretchen about their issues but this year she will talk to Vicki. Alexis says they’re stronger and happier now than they ever have been… Jim’s getting lucky tonight.. He says it’s going to be quick quick slow… TMI, Jim, TMI.
Meanwhile, down in the rec room… drinks are flowing and desserts are plentiful. Tamra takes one look at the desserts and asks Terry if they came from Costco? Tamra says she gets them from Costco all the time… Terry, knowing that this would put his wife over the edge and while feigning innocence asked her if the desserts came from Costco? Heather snapped, “Just stop!” Terry retorted, “That’s what Tamra said…” As she walks away, Heather strongly pinches her husband in the arm as the universal wifely sign for “Shut-Up.” Heather thinks she really needs to get control of that man…
Tamra gets a phone call from Eddie and their permits were approved! Whoopie! Now, they’re official owners of a fitness studio. Great… Now we’re going to be treated to a never ending infomercial about it this season. Lucky us! Heather thinks Vicki and Tamra need to talk and move forward. Vicki cautions that they need to be nice but at the same time insists that she’s always nice. They move into the small, glass enclosed wine cellar. Tamra doesn’t let Heather come in – she wants it to just be her and Vicki. It might just be me, but I would NOT want to be anywhere with Tamra and Vicki and that many bottles of wine that are accessible for either drinking or throwing.
Tamra and Vicki decide that you don’t always agree what your family does, but you love them anyway… that they were so close for so long – that maybe they can get to a better place in their friendship. Meanwhile, banished outside of the glass doors, Gretchen tells Heather she thinks that Vicki is just putting on a dog and pony show about how her life sucks. Gretchen says you can’t live your life based on what other people think… Gretchen is on the phone with Slade, and he reminds Gretchen that Vicki has been a really good liar in the past so there’s no reason to believe her now. Inside the wine cellar, Tamra is insisting that she doesn’t actually hate Brooks – but that he just came across to her too much like a charmer who was trying too hard to get Vicki. Vicki says that a guy is going to have to work hard to get her. Tamra thinks that if someone says all the right things that it’s hard to see through all their bologna. They “happen” to see a bottle of wine from the winery that Vicki and Don/Tamra and Simon visited during a previous season when they were all way more married than they are now. Cue the music to “The Way We Were.” Perhaps David Foster can accompany Babs on the piano – Sorry, I warned you I wasn’t over RHOBH yet… baby steps. Dang… now I’m craving lemons.
Tamra brings up Vicki’s grandson and that she doesn’t feel like she can go see him or visit Vicki… They conclude that friends have disagreements all the time… Tamra says she’s sorry… Vicki says she’s sorry and she’s open to seeing what can happen. Somewhere a bell rings and an angel gets its’ wings. In her talking head, Vicki says at first that she’s not open to forgive, well, maybe a little – -but she’ll never forget… On that note, Vicki exits – stage left. Tamra muses if she will ever be able to trust Vicki again…
Oh good. It’s time for the gratuitous ride home in a limo with Heckle and Jeckle. They think something is weird with Vicki. Whew, it’s been barely 3 seconds and Tamra’s already talking trash about Vicki. It’s eerily comforting to see that some things never change. Gretchen insists that Vicki is a liar and that she’s gonna turn this whole thing around and blame them that she’s not able to be with the love of her life – and that she’s resorting to plastic surgery to make her life better. Gretchen says that it drives her “bananers.” Awww, isn’t that just the cutest lil thang? She said “bananas” with an “ers”… Tamra thinks that Gretchen truly believes that if she becomes friends with Vicki again that something bad is going to happen between Gretchen and Tamra. This must be true because adult women can’t be friends with more than one person at a time. Actually, it feels more like she’s telegraphing a future Bravo-assigned storyline for this season.
Alexis and Jim are almost ready to open the Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park in Anaheim, CA – so of course, we get a tour. Now you would think that if you’re about to open a trampoline business, that you’d have some experience ummm… jumping on a trampoline? However, it helps if you have a small modicum of rhythm – and Alexis just seems off her game. Then Alexis makes a feeble attempt to be the first one to jump into the adult foam pit. This required you use the trampoline as a launch pad into the pit – and well, our little Alexis got kinda tripped up. I sure hope their insurance policy is paid up cuz this entire place is just an accident waiting to happen. I think I saw a designated area where all the ambulance chasing lawyers will have to wait their turn for their clients. Jim, remembering that the only footage of him this episode is of him dancing, does a manly jump backwards into the foam pit. It may just be me, but he really looks like he’s lost a chunk of weight. In talking about their business venture, Alexis proudly says that her husband has been an entrepreneur all along but that the other women have had issues with it because they’ve really never known what he does for a living. Jim says the capacity for this huge place is 100… and that they will quickly sell out… Wow… that doesn’t sound like you can make much money at $20 for 2 hours. There’s a lot of overhead, too. They do have a cute birthday room… ooo ooo ooo and you can play dodge ball! They’re having a lot of media scheduled to come to their grand opening… and with all of her on-camera reporting experience, Alexis is the appointed spokesperson for Sky Zone… Alexis says there were a lot of rumors that she was fired from Fox 5 – but that couldn’t be further from the truth – she just had to take a step back from her commitments. Alexis seems to think she’s stronger this season vs. last season – and says that the women can belittle her, be mean to her and even be snarky towards her but that she will just laugh all the way to the bank.
Yes, evidently it’s true, Slade has a one hour radio show daily from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm called “Radio Slade” on 92.7 fm. No, I haven’t listened to him, thankfully. Oh goodie, we get to see him “in action” along with his cohost on air. He is saying how there’s a person that’s not really well liked in their social circle who looks like a Muppet…(Gee, who could that be?) but then all of the sudden, at least according to some internet reports – after having like her 13th plastic surgery… she shows up to a party looking like Mickey Rourke… (Mean, mean, mean!) So Slade wonders if you should acknowledge the fact that there’s been a change… Should you actually confront the elephant in the room? In a very feeble attempt at being funny, he postulates that if he does acknowledge the elephant in the room – then he had better bring some peanuts because you really don’t want to piss off the elephant. Guffaw… Laugh-o-rama. Gretchen comes in and says that she likes seeing Slade working in his environment. She says he’s the highest rated hour on the play list… and that he’s kickin’ some butt… She and Slade talks to his boss and he’s given an actual check – Which I suppose is supposed to prove that he’s no longer a good for nothing dead beat dad. Congratulations, you got a paycheck. Gretchen wants the check. Umm… Gretchen, he has a kid who needs the check, thank you very much. Gretchen says that this year he’s doing well financially… so now she thinks marriage is definitely on their horizon… KMN… Wait… perhaps Tamra and Gretchen could have a double wedding since they like to dress like twins now, anyway! Now wouldn’t that be just the cutest lil thang?
It’s renovation time at Vicki’s house. Since Don has moved out, Vicki wants to redo the house to reflect her taste. As if Don ever had a say about the decorations in the house – Puhleeze. I do get it, though – it’s kind of normal that she would want to change everything completely after her divorce. She is “Vickizing” the house. Peter, the artist, is beautifully hand painting peacocks on the cream colored walls in one room – not sure which one it was. Vicki is going for a light, rich, Mediterranean motif – Yes, cuz that’s what I think of when I see peacocks – a Mediterranean motif. Briana is not happy with all the construction. Evidently, when Briana was 6 and a half months pregnant, Vicki tells her she wants to do some construction on the house – but not that much. First it was the family room – then all of the bathrooms, and now it’s the whole house. Briana isn’t happy with all the paint fumes and all of the dust that’s flying around. I wouldn’t be either with a newborn. I’d probably have to make other living arrangements, to be honest. But really, it’s Vicki’s house and she can do whatever the heck she wants to with it. We all know everything is all about Vicki, don’t we? Vicki takes Troy in her arms and starts talking grandmotherly baby talk to him. She says that Troy is just what the family needed to put them all back together again – Kind of like Humpty Dumpty… Umm… Vicki… the saying goes, “All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again.”… So you’re really going to have to brush up on nursery rhymes if you’re going to be a good nana, dagnabit! Briana is realizing just how hard it is to be a mom and so she decides she’s going to give her mom some slack. She’d really love time just to sleep. Uh oh… Troy has glitter on his head again… Briana chides her mom about wearing stuff with glitter around the baby because she’s always cleaning it off of him. Vicki says it must be her lip gloss. Vicki is really just going to concentrate on showering this little one with lots of love, gifts, and kisses… which means glitter is prolly gonna be involved somehow.
The 30 second fake out between commercials is Alexis modeling black flip flops with rhinestones… Jim doesn’t understand why she wears them until he tries them on. “It’s the cushion – it feels like you’re walking on a pillow top bed,” Alexis explains. Is it just me, or was it way too natural for Jim to try on women’s shoes?
Okay, now we’re at Tamra’s and Eddie’s house and all of Tamra’s kids have made hand prints on brightly colored canvases… Tamra decides they want Bronx the dog to do one, too… So they dip his cute paw print into sky blue paint and then place it on a bright lime green colored canvas… Whoa… color alert! Eddie asks Tamra if she talked with Vicki and set her straight. Tamra said that she thinks Vicki wants back into her life… Tamra says she considers Vicki to be part of her family and that it was just last year when things were bad. Tamra said Vicki made it sound like Brooks broke up with her… Tamra insists she only wanted what’s best for Vicki and that she never said anything that attacked Vicki personally. Eddie says Vicki is trying to manipulate things again. He tells Tamra that Vicki is all about lying, cheating, deceiving… He said to Tamra, “I highly recommend you don’t become friends with her again… don’t trust her don’t let her back in because she’s only going to hurt you again.” Tamra seems so confused because Gretchen and Eddie are telling her to stay away from Vicki and Heather is telling her to give her another chance. What’s a girl supposed to do? Tamra is just so overwhelmed by it all… Stay tuned for the answers to these and all of life’s greatest mysteries on next weeks’ episode… Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?
Dancing with the Stars by Lisette
As the dancers and pros are introduced Lisa didn’t come down the stairs with Gleb. We’re told she is resting and didn’t make rehearsals. They’re letting her decide if she wants to dance tonight or not. Guess we have to wait and see…
Tonight is remembering the best year of your life. Also first solo’s of the season. First up…
Sean & Peta – Viennese Waltz – Score 20
- CAI – 6
- LG – 7
- BT – 7
Sean’s best year is 2012 because its the year he met Katheryn. His parents are still married and that’s the love story he wants for himself. His waltz looks to me clunky and robotic. The audience loves it though. His solo is hard to look at. Of course he ends the dance by dancing his way to his “finance” in the audience and kissing her. Len liked it had a few quibbles. Bruno called it sweet agreed with Len’s quibbles. Carrie Ann called out two lifts which are no no’s for the waltz.
The twitter voting for tonight is which male and female pro you want to see dance tomorrow. Now they show previews of who is coming up next. I hoped the producers wouldn’t do it but they did. They showed the footage of Lisa fainting. Now I know they showed the beejesus out of Marie Osmond fainting and I thought that was disrespectful then and I think it is disrespectful now. Seriously, it is crass and uncalled for. We know she fainted. We don’t need to see her falling to the ground. Sorry (deep breath) rant over.
Victor & Lindsay – Paso Doble – Score 18
- CAI – 6
- LG – 6
- BT – 6
Victor’s important year is when he won his first boxing title. He recounts how he was dead broke and entered this fight with no chance of winning and he came away with the championship. And winning enabled him to start being able to support his family. I thought this dance with its aggression and powerful moves would be right up Victor’s alley but he seemed slightly befuddled throughout the whole dance. Poor Lindsay was dancing her butt off but it did not look good. Bruno said instead of dancing the paso doble he destroyed it. Bruno hopes he comes back because he knows he can do better. Carrie Ann said he has the passion and the heart but it doesn’t transcend to the dance floor. Len admires his spirit and determination but the paso needed more refinement and a little more shaping but he gave his all. (I wonder if DL would have received the same sentiment?)
Jacoby & Karina – Foxtrot – Score 24
- CAI – 8
- LG – 8
- BT – 8
2012 was Jacoby’s best year. Not because he won the Superbowl but because it is when his son was born. Jacoby was raised without his dad and that fuels his desire to be more for his son. He’s dancing it for his son. AWWWW! The dance was sweet and of course his son was in the audience with his grandma! He’s so cute you just want to nomnomnom on those cheeks! Jacoby has a huge wingspan so when he does those sweeping motions with his arms it looks comical instead of elegant. His solo was cute though. And of course his mama is crying in the audience. I love seeing loving family reactions. Carrie Ann liked it but she did admit that it wasn’t a traditional foxtrot. She talked about how he has to tuck his bottom in. I was thinking that during the dance too. Its that he’s so tall and Karina is so short he has to bend down to her level and well his bottom sticks out. Len liked it! Bruno, oh Bruno! He loved it but agreed about his wingspan.
- CAI – 9
- LG – 9
- BT – 9
Alexandra also picked 2012 because she represented America in the Olympics. I imagine there will be lots of tumbling in her routine. Aly’s dance was a real crowd pleaser. She kept the tumbling to one routine which was nice. There were lots of lifts and it was a very emotional dance. I’m not a fan of contemporary so I can’t offer more. Some of the Fab Five were in the audience. Len liked it and made a joke about how her last tumbling routine could have gone higher and later he would show her how to do it. It was a joke but Aly is very serious and didn’t get it. Mark had to tell her it was a joke. Bruno loved it and said he saw parts of Twyla Tharp and Graham (according to google Martha Graham) and said well done. Carrie Ann was proud of Aly because she was completely in the moment for dancing which is different from her gymnastics training and Carrie Ann found it mesmerizing. On her way up to get her scores Aly runs to hug her teammates, Kyla Ross and Gaby Douglas, and her dad is there too!
Andy & Sharna – Viennese Waltz – Score 21
- CAI – 7
- LG – 7
- BT – 7
2013 is so far Andy’s best year. Andy is dedicating his dance to his 15 year old daughter. He says his kids have had it rough because they have him for a dad. This one is going to be a weeper. He was really good. Bruno called it the best he’s danced since show one. Carrie Ann is crying and can’t talk. She tells andy to come to her so she can give him a hug. She’s really emotional. She said his movements were small but what he said with his movements was really grand. Len said you came to this show a man and you will leave it a hero. He didn’t really critique the dance thought…LOL!
Zendaya & Val – Samba – Score 26
- CAI – 9
- LG – 8
- BT – 9
2009 is Zendaya’s best year. It is when she started working in Hollywood. It is when she was “discovered” (her quotes). Of course the dance is amazing and really the best of the season! I love how Val was able to keep the choreography age appropriate. I even loved how her costume was simple black pants and white top. She is really fun to watch. Her solo was supposed to be reminiscent of Beyonce but it really channeled Michael Jackson. Really good dance! And Wynonna was in the audience cheering her on. Wynonna had the best smile on her face. She should do that more often 😉 Carrie Ann loved it! She called Zendaya Baby Beyonce and complimented Val on his choreography. Len wanted more samba content in the solo but he called the dance well done. Bruno is out of his chair. Says it was a samba for today and every kid would want to dance a samba like her.
Ingo & Kym – Viennese Waltz – Score 23
- CAI – 8
- LG – 7
- BT – 8
2009 is Ingo’s best year. It is the year he married his wife. He says his wife completed his life and he’s dancing this for her. His sons are in the rehearsal and he asks his oldest what would you give your dad and his son whispers “I give you a three”…LOL! So cute! He danced a really nice waltz. Len commends him on the footwork and liked his solo. He said Ingo had a few incidences with his arms but overall good. Bruno called it elegant. He likes that Ingo takes what the judges tell him and puts it into practice. Agreed with Len on the arms. Carrie Ann also liked that he took her advise from last week and it showed. She also said how when you add love to a dance a dancer blooms.
DL & Cheryl – Foxtrot – Score 21
CAI – 7
LG – 7
BT – 7
DL’s best year of his life is when he was in seventh or eight grade. It was a time before life got real. He says nothing says Compton like the foxtrot…LOL! DL looks like he finally is having fun with this dancing thing. It was his best dance. He moved his hips for the judges! It was cute. Bruno says his performance was better than ever and he was going to get an extra point for the butt. Carrie Ann loved it! Len said it was far better and it had elements of fun and it was smoother. Len said someone told him DL trained a lot more this week than before and it showed.
Kellie & Derek – Rumba – Score 26
- CAI – 9
- LG – 8
- BT – 9
Kellie’s best year is when she married her husband, Jan 1, 2011. Kellie will be dancing to a song written and sung by her husband, Kyle Jacobs. Kellie talks about how they eloped and she shows some video from their wedding. Kellie is such a gorgeous dancer. I normally don’t like the rumba but this dance was beautiful. Carrie Ann says she makes the prettiest pictures with her dancing. Carrie Ann said her dance was a little clipped but still beautiful. Len agreed but he thought it was great with her husband playing and her dancing. Bruno called it beautiful and said it was scored by the music of love…awwww…
- CAI – 6
- LG – 6
- BT – 6
Well we finally see Lisa. She has been MIA the whole show. She’s in costume so I think she will dance. Lisa’s best year of her life was Pandy’s wedding. They show the buildup and then the fainting. Poor Gleb didn’t know what to do or think. They take Lisa to the Dr. and he tells her to rest but she doesn’t want to. Thankfully Gleb doesn’t listen and takes her home. Now on to the cha cha! Lisa is more alive than any of her other dances! LOL! She’s much improved but she misses a few steps. She was seriously so much better! Len said she made a few mistakes and it could have been crisper and sharper but that can be attributed to being under rehearsed. He said it could have been better but still well done. Bruno says she looks pretty good for coming out of the hospital. He said it was good for being under rehearsed and hopefully she can get herself together and show them what she can do next time. Carrie Ann says she’s looking good and she chided Gleb for a lift. First time was a warning and this time it means points off. In the fishbowl all the contestants and pros are on their feet supporting Lisa. She looks very tired but good for her for making it through.
So Aly & Mark are at the top and Victor & Lindsay and Lisa & Gleb are both on the bottom. Who do you think will go home tomorrow?
