The angels in heaven better prepare to be judged on how graceful they lengthen their arms as they glide above the clouds because they’ve got a master in movements of elegance in their midst! Len Goodman, the former head judge on Strictly Come Dancing and its American version, Dancing with the Stars, has died. He was 78.
Smize Queen Tyra Banks has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance for the past few years, but unfortunately, it has all been pandemic related. For starters, she began hosting Dancing With The Stars back in 2020, although many thought she would have made a better contestant than host. Conversely, during this time was the resurgence of how horribly her series America’s Next Top Model has aged over the years, and if anything, the producers of DWTS should have looked to that as the litmus test for how she would be as a host. But now it no longer matters as Tyra is doing the foxtrot on out the door at DWTS to focus on other endeavors, including her ice cream brand SMiZE & Dream.
Selma Blair is bowing out of Dancing with the Stars early due to health concerns. The 50-year-old was diagnosed with MS back in 2018, so participating in the 31st season (!) of DWTS was always going to be a big challenge for her. On last night’s episode, Selma was shown breaking the bad news to dance partner Sasha Farber. She explained that doctors had been monitoring her body, and, based on the results of some MRIs, she couldn’t go on. “I pushed as far as I could.” Selma and Sasha performed one last waltz together, and the judges gave them three honorary perfect 10s. And everybody cried, because who doesn’t love Selma Blair? Well, everybody except her late dad’s ex-girlfriend, who sent hate mail to Drew Barrymore using Selma’s name. She’s probably not a fan.
And now for the biggest news story of the day: the new Dancing with the Stars cast members have been announced! Yesterday, TikTok girl Charli D’Amelio and her mom Heidi D’Amelio (I thought this was the one who was PR-fucking the “Yung Gravy” character, but, nope, that’s Addison Rae’s mom) went on Good Morning America to announce they were on Season 31. Then, this morning, the other fourteen cast members went on GMA to reveal themselves. They include Selma Blair, Shangela, Cheryl Ladd, Wayne Brady, Joseph Baena (aka the secret son Arnold Schwarzenegger had with his housekeeper), and Teresa Giudice. Oh shit, they booked Teresa? Quick, bolt down anything on set that can be rage-flipped!
Former “Dancing With The Stars” Host Brooke Burke Drags New Host Tyra Banks For Being “A Diva” And Pulling Focus
Dancing With The Stars has gone through a lot of changes recently. Most drastic is the change from the series moving from ABC to Disney+. But before that, Tyra Banks took over from Tom Bergeron who hosted since season one. But that’s Tyra Banks: DRAHMAH! And that’s the problem, so says Brooke Burke, a former host of the show. In a new interview, Brooke’s review of Tyra of a host is not glowing. Calling her a “Diva,” Brooke more than suggests that Tyra often pulls focus. YOU DON’T SAY?!
While many of us are sending thoughts of support to the people of Ukraine after Putin invaded their country, SOME “I’m just asking questions” individuals are wondering if all those news images of bombings are actually real. And those people are named Kirstie Alley! Add this moronic take to Kirstie’s ever-growing list of asinine comments. Thankfully, her former Dancing with the Stars partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy took her to task!
