Yet throughout this series we are all referring to Chastity Bono as "he" and SHE is NOT a HE. We are born what we are and if we don't like it we can surgically do things to our bodies to imitate the secondary sexual characteristics of the sex we wanted to be at birth. We can also have scales surgically affixed to our skin to better imitate Godzilla. Neither action makes us another sex or a monster from Japan, in that order.
Here's a pic I came across of Chastity when "HE" was a "SHE". The other person in the pic is Jennifer Anniston.
At any rate, good ole boy Chaz has been out of the competition for a couple of weeks now and he sure made a stink about it. Which is a real smile in that Chaz, be it male or female, was one of the worst dancers, EVER, on DWS!
There were seven left this past Halloween week and in honor of the holiday the Dancing With the Stars dances were even more costumed than ever and there was a spooky group dance featuring three contenders in Team Tango: Nancy, David, J.R., pictured below. Team Paso featured Ricki, Rob, Hope, which danced way better than their Tango competitors
As for their individual dance routines, three contenders came out on top, the most surprising of which was Rob Kardashian. Carrie Ann thought it his best dance so far, and this so close to the tragic news of his sister's pending divorce. I thought Rob did quite well with his Tango. Rob tied with perpetual leader J.R. Martinez.
Hope Solo performed well though the poor child can't seem to get sexy no matter how she tries. I thought earlier in the series that Hope would do way better than she has what with being an athlete and with the advantage of youth. As it is she's barely kept up with Nancy Grace, whose days on DWS are now limited. In fact, Nancy was one of the bottom two.
Ricki Lake continues to astound. This past week she had something called a "rib neuropathy" which is what we all get at times when we're winded. The whole thing added the required drama and pathos as we always have at least one injury with one brave dancer suffering the pain to entertain us. Ricki always looks
This past episode was not J.R.'s best performance but so what? We all have bad days now and again.
My order for the final five:
