Dancing with the Stars Results Show by Lisette
Welcome to the 300th episode of Dancing with the Stars! 300th! The pros and troupe get things started with a super sparkly dance number. Next we get the highlights from last night. And the first couple going to the finals is…Jacoby & Karina! Mama Jacoby is dancing in the aisle…LOL! Back from the break and Kellie & Derek’s Argentine Tango gets the encore. Good choice! The AT&T spotlight dance is 10 year old Sophia Lucia, the Guinness Book of World Record holder for most pirouettes in one go. She can do 55! She’s performing with Chelsie Hightower, Whitney, Lindsay and Tyne (?) from the troupe. What a cute dance. This girl has some amazing talent and she’s only 10! (She’s on Dance Moms tonight too – NMD)
Back from the break and we’re treated to some filler (video montages and interviews with Brookebot). The Wanted performs their latest single accompanied by Tyne and Blake. The song they performed was written for the ConAgra campaign to end child hunger. I like when DWTS uses their advertising power to highlight a good cause. Next up is a performance by Avril Lavigne. Avril doesn’t seem to age and her engagement ring is HUGE! Now onto more results the next couple in the finale is…Kellie & Derek! Zendaya & Val are in jeopardy (insert Scooby-Doo Ruh-Roh!) Back from break and we have a performance by Christina Grimmie with dancing from Gleb and Sharna. More results…the next couple going to the finale is…Alexandra & Mark which means Ingo & Kym are in jeopardy. Back from the break and the two couples in jeopardy are not necessarily the bottom two. The couple going home tonight is…Ingo & Kym which means Zendaya & Val are in the finale.
I think the right couple went home tonight. Next week will be chock-full of goodness and there will be a champion at the end. Who do you think will win the coveted mirrorball trophy? By the way, ABC announced today they are doing without the results show for next season. No more filler! Works for me 🙂
Newlyweds: The First Year, Episode 2 by BB
Kathryn and John are honeymooning in Antigua. They are having lots of sex and are thinking about having a honeymoon baby. John’s OK whether it happens or not; he’s having fun regardless.
Back in Oyster Bay, NY, Kathryn and John are opening the wedding cards they received at their wedding and counting their booty. Kathryn wants to read every individual card and John is only interested in getting the cash and checks out and going to the bank. John is complaining about how little money some of the cards contain while Kathryn is telling him it doesn’t matter; their wedding was filled with love for them from everyone who attended. Man, I was hoping we would get the final tally, but they didn’t say!
Later, we see Kathryn and John having breakfast (prepared by Kathryn). John has made a list for Kathryn for the day. His fantasy is to have a wife take care of him. He loves the fact that Kathryn wants to be a housewife. After John leaves for work, Kathryn gets to work. She vacuums, dusts, makes the bed, and then sits around looking bored.
Being a housewife is kind of lonely so Kathryn’s friend Lyndsey pays her a visit. They have coffee and talk about how big the house is to clean for Kathryn since John got rid of his cleaning service. Lyndsey tells Kathryn her new living room curtains are horrible. Kathryn bought them because they were on sale and Lyndsey tells her they look like it. Kathryn is dangerous when it comes to credit cards. She’s a housewife and she shops all day. She’s spent $1,200 that week. John has had to switch to the cash system and take the credit card away. Kathryn says she needs to learn from John because he’s managed to save a heck of a lot more money than she has.
John is working out and his sister Ellen is there and wants to talk to him about something. She tells him he needs to stop constantly talking about money to Kathryn. He has even starting budgeting for the baby on his many lists. Ellen’s not sure he is ready for a baby yet. However, Kathryn says nothing would make her happier than to be pregnant. She’s is already taking a pregnancy test.
Jeff and Blair are leaving LA in the early morning hours. Jeff tells us they are en route to Atlanta. Blair has to correct him and tell us they are on their way to Savannah, which is a totally different city in Georgia. By the way, I’ve been to both cities and I must say I prefer Savannah. They are going there to do all the final planning for the marriage ceremony, even though they’ve already signed their commitment documents and are legal in LA. Blair grew up in Texas but he is gravitationally pulled to Savannah, GA. He says he was either a Black plantation worker in a prior life or a choir teacher in the 1950’s. Blair’s mom and her friend arrive with the couple. They always have better sex out of town, so Blair encourages lots of out of town trips.
Blair and Jeff wake up in Savannah with a lot of plans for the day. They take a carriage ride through downtown. Savannah (I’ve done that. The horses’ names were Hank and Rowdy). It’s a beautiful city. They get to the house where their wedding will take place. The theme of the reception will be modern Great Gatsby. Blair’s mom and step-dad are paying for the wedding. Blair is all into the production, but Jeff is getting very nervous about it. He hasn’t seen his nieces or nephews in the eight years since he came out. He waited until he was 35 to come out, and his family hasn’t accepted it, which is what he expected. At a tasting with the caterer, Blair loves all the food except the smoked duck. Blair doesn’t like the weird texture and spits it out, which embarrasses Jeff.
At dinner that night with Jeff, Blair, his mom and her friend, they discuss the upcoming wedding and the RSVP’s. So far 72 people have responded, but they’ve heard nothing from Jeff’s parents. Blair says if they didn’t want to come, they should just send their regrets instead of not responding at all. Jeff gets emotional and Blair consoles him, while Blair’s mom makes a toast to her precious boys and the great weekend they’ve just had. I love Blair’s mom.
Tina and Tarz are in Riverside CA, one of their three homes. The other two are in Columbia. South Carolina, where they were married, and the other is an apartment in New York. The house in Riverside used to belong to Tina’s parents before her mom passed away. Her dad no longer wants to live in the house because it’s where her mom suffered and died from cancer. The Riverside house is a little too big for them.
Tina is trying to distract Tarz from the computer screen to help her fold sheets. Tina thought being married would mean spending more time together, but so far that’s not been the case. Tarz is involved in his company and that comes first and his marriage comes second. He discusses things with his business partner and he’ll have to be traveling a lot in the next few months. Tina has given up touring to focus on her marriage and baby-making.
Tina and Tarz are getting tattoos instead of going on a honeymoon. They plan to do one “out of the comfort zone” crazy thing every month for 12 months. The first of those is getting tattoos. Tina thinks it will help bring them closer and spend more time with each other; otherwise Tarz would be on his computer day and night. They are getting Hindi sign tattoos representing Tina’s mom’s name and the name Tina plans on naming her first child that she hopes is a baby girl. They use transfers of the tattoos first to see how they’ll look. Tina takes longer to decide what she wants and where she wants it. You can tell the two tattoo artists are getting frustrated with Tina, she’s so high maintenance.
Later, Tina’s dad comes over for dinner and she knows he’s going to hate the tattoos. Tina’s dad doesn’t accept Tarz. When he arrives in a suit and tie, he asks Tarz (who’s in a sweatshirt) if that’s how he dresses for dinner. Tarz is not going to be the traditional Indian son-in-law and wait on Tina’s dad hand and foot. Tina senses tension and wants to get resolution between Tarz and her dad. Tarz shows her Dad his tattoo and he calls it ugly and says he knows how he hates tattoos. When Tina shows her dad her tattoo, he shouts how much he hates it and wants to know if she can laser it off. She wants to show him that this thing with Tarz is no joke and her dad needs to accept that they are together. Tina’s dad says classy people don’t do tattoos, bad people do.
Tarz and Tina are taking a pregnancy test to see if they are already pregnant. Tina is anxious to get pregnant because she met Tarz later in her life.
Kim and Alaska have an apartment in the Bronx, NY. They are Christians and didn’t live together before marriage. Alaska’s sister and her son Tyler live with them in Alaska’s place. Alaska’s job is in LA, but Kim is not into LA right now. Kim tells Alaska they need to start looking for a place of their own in New York. Kim is a little disappointed in how their marriage is starting out by not having a place of their own.
Kim and Alaska are at the Laundromat talking about looking for an apartment in New York that day. Kim wants to look in Harlem, but Alaska wants to stay in the Bronx. Kim is OK with that as long as they are alone. Since Alaska works in LA most of the time, he just wants a crash pad in New York because he thinks they will both eventually live in LA. Kim says OK because she wants to be the submissive wife, but inside it’s hard for her to let go and not take control. Alaska’s father was the master of the house and that’s how he was raised. They continue discussing living in LA vs. living in NY and future kids.
Kim and Alaska are in Harlem looking for an apartment. This is Kim’s vision. She loves the history, the community and the people of Harlem. The first place they look at has all the original fixtures. Kim is picturing parties they will be having there. Alaska says none of that stuff is ever going to happen. He would rather spend the money on a place in LA and just have a crash pad in New York. They have the money, but he doesn’t want to spend it on that big place. Kim knows she has her work cut out for her in order to convince him to get a nice place in NY. They continue looking the next day and see another smaller apartment with a huge walk-in closet. Kim calls it a great crash pad and she feels strongly about it. Alaska wants to think about it but the realtor says she’s showing it to others. Alaska doesn’t want to be rushed and Kim tells him to “simmer” on it.
Alaska and Kim have been so stressed out looking at apartments, they go in for a spa treatment (massages and pedicures). They seem to like to do the spa thing a lot. Kim has always wanted to have sex in public but that’s not Alaska’s thing. At least he will now hold hands in public, which he didn’t want to do at first. His parents were not into PDA’s. Kim has had to train Alaska to open up and let her in. In her talking head, she says she’s hoping it gets better and better “once they’re married.” Oops! Aren’t they already married? I think Bravo slipped up on the timeline here. But we all know they change up the timelines all the time, don’t they? They decide they will do the spa thing at least once a month.
This show’s not bad and so far my blood pressure has remained in a safe range. I wonder if either couple is pregnant yet. I guess we’ll find out next week.
