Due to personal issues (involving red wine, le opposite sex and dirty dancing) Lita was unable to watch the first ep of 2008 Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday night. Never mind, it was safely recorded on a creaky ole video tape, all set to torment Lita’s cat whenever viewing time becomes available.
Talk at the water-cooler today strongly resembled the following:
“Geeling is just gross and hideous – she has got to go.”
“Monty is totally hot and a great dancer.”
“Monty is hot, but his boobies look bigger than Nerida’s!”
“I hate that Devlin man.”
“Martin Devlin really impressed me.”
“Did you see how many times Stefano kissed the top of Temepara’s head?”
“Sione will smash him before the series is finished.”
“Suzanne Paul’s dance was cringe-worthy.”
“I missed it, got it on tape, did Suzanne say ‘hi Mum’ ?”
“I heard on George FM this morning that PU is really sick with a head cold, so he did brilliantly considering.”
“It would be nice if people could learn to pronounce Temepara before the next show.”
“I can’t stop yawning, that damn show is on too damn late.”
“Me and my boyfriend are hooked already, sad but true.”
So it looks like Lita missed a good show. Sigh. Luckily, Lita’s Mother decided to expand her role from a regular BOTS commenter to a one-off DWTS recap writer.
Check out my Ma’s take on the first episode of Dancing with the Stars 2008.
(Lita: Tis all true. The following text is all my Mother’s words – I didn’t even add any swearies. My comments are in italics.)
Cory Hutchings and Rebecca
Cory and partner Rebecca Nicholson danced the ChaChaCha. And I thought them very good. I’m no judge, but I do know what I like, and they were very pleasing on the eye. However, Craig Revill-whatever-his-last-name-is said Cory did not have co-ordination! I felt they were pretty good, considering they were the first couple to grace the floor with their presence.
(Lita: Isn’t ‘pleasing on the eye’ such a pleasing term? Nice work Mother.) Geeling Ng and BrianGeeling and her partner Brian Jones danced the Waltz. Geeling told Jason Gunn that her good friend David Bowie, whom she starred in the video of ‘China Girl’ with, would be sure to say to her “to go on and be the star that you are” ….. puhlease – spare us!! Craig said the dance was “rubbish”, Brendan agreed with him. Stop the press! This has gotta be the first time those two have agreed on anything. And I agreed with them. Paul was not overly happy, but Alison thought Geeling was “sweet” and Candy said she was “proud of her”. Mind you, Candy said that about all of them by the end of the show. Thankfully, Candy didn’t say Geeling was “sweet” and Alison didn’t say Geeling was “candy”!
(Lita: Nice play on words Mum. I think. I’m pretty sure I have heard Geeling mention her good pal Bowie several hundred times before, poor David, how he must cringe.)
