Dancing with stars – who is the star?
Dancing with the recognizable name? Dancing with the overweight? Dancing with the oddity? Dancing with grandma? Whatever.
“Dancing With the Stars Season 13 Premiere Recap: Go Chaz Go!
September 20th, 2011 6:29 AM by Free Britney
Dancing With the Stars kicked off its 13th season Monday night, with all eyes on Chaz Bono. While the producers (sagely) saved his performance for last, we won't make you wait for the verdict on his parquet debut:
Not altogether terrible!
The show's first-ever transgender contestant is not exactly a natural dancer - his mom Cher made that clear - and it showed. However, with the guidance of Lacey Schwimmer, Chaz more than held his own out there.
Bruno even called them "cute and cuddly." Whether you agree with that or not, they should easily be safe this week, given how much attention he'll get and how many people he may win over by simply being there and making a positive impact.
Besides, Chaz's 17 points Monday actually beat four other people!
Perhaps the second biggest celebrity name this season is David Arquette, who celeb news readers know hasn't had the best year, but was cheered on by daughter Coco and separated wife Courteney Cox in a sweet show of solidarity.
Like Chaz, he didn't knock anyone's socks off, but with his energy and enthusiasm, he more than acquitted himself in his DWTS debut and tallied 18 points.”
