Dancing With the Stars – It’s Never Too Early to Panic

September 22, 2010

Well, week 1 of Dancing With The Stars is in the history books, and our darling Situation is safe.

He came, he sort of practiced, he awkwardly half fist-pumped — and he had pretty amazing lines when he actually hit the Cha-Cha steps with partner Karina Smirnoff.

While, Len Goodman said he “had the guns, but not the ammunition,” and Carrie Ann and Bruno both stated that it was impossible to hold Mike to the same level as the other contestants because he had only had 5 days to practice as opposed to everyone else’s 21.

Next week, however, all bets are off and he needs to step up his game if he wants to stick around the competition.

Based on week one, however, there are a few people Mike needs to watch out for. Jennifer Grey (of Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bueller fame) and Kyle Massey (from Disney’s That’s So Raven, and Corey in the House) are the obvious -and somewhat surprising – standouts.

That’s not to say the other’s won’t be difficult competition. Audrina from The Hills may take some of the MTV viewer vote away from the Sitch; Margaret Cho is already setting herself up as the dancer with the schtic, so the Sitch can’t fall back on GTL or any other mantras he might have had at the Shore; Rick Fox and Kurt Warner will have the stamina to withstand stressful situations week after week; and Brandy has some obvious dance experience, but her completely Botoxed face may scare some voters off. I swear her forehead NEVER MOVES!

And then there’s Florence Henderson, also known as Mrs. Carol Brady. Mike needs to especially watch out for her since she seems either intent on taking the nickname away from him with her OWN situation, or creepily making herself into a cougar as she requests to touch his situation.

Hope you’re all enjoying seeing Mike three times a week! We’ll be back next Tuesday with a wrap-up of Mike’s hopefully better rehearsed second dance – this time it’ll be ballroom instead of Latin.

DWTS Starts Tonight – With the Sitch!

We have yet to see our first glimpse of Mr. Sorrentino looking dapper and dandy on Dancing With the Stars. He was wrapping season 3 and doing promotions for Jersey Shore when his 11 competitors were shooting promos, doing interviews about their famous mothers and learning their first routines. In fact, the Situation had to truncate his rehearsal time due to all of his commitments (Word of the day – a la Snooki – Truncate), so he has only been practicing for two weeks as opposed to the other competitor’s four.

One question has already been answered: How long will it take for the Sitch to show off the Situation? The Answer: Not even the first episode, as his promo photos show him in an open suit vest with a Rosary around his neck.

However, tonight, all the rest of our questions will be answered and Mike takes the floor with Karina Smirnoff. We hope to have a wrap-up of his first episode up tomorrow!

The Situation and Dancing with the Stars?!

July 30, 2010

Jersey Shore Cast Season 2We have to give a special thanks to Tim and My Mom Calls Me George on Cincinnati’s KISS 107.1 for alerting us to this gem of information, rumors have been swirling rampant lately that Mike “The Situation” has inflated his ego so that it is even bigger than an unknown 29 year old who likes to refer to part of his anatomy as “The Situation.”

As much as we love him, and the juiciness he adds to the Jersey Shore cast, and as much as we can’t blame him for banking the name in as many different ways as possible (Sitch, honey, you tried the rap route…let’s let that one die), we have to admit he is kind of an ass.

This is the guy who facilitated Snooki getting punched in the face, and then creeped on some chicks as Vinny and JWoww helped as she cried in the bathroom, after all.

After last night’s much-debated premiere — a lot of the blogosphere thinks the magic has worn off, whereas we’ll give it at least two more episodes to entertain us past Angelina being abso-fricken-lutely insane and JWoww hating on her and Sammi; hell, if we could see more drunk Ronnie with grenades and landmines, we’d be happy — it’ll be interesting to see the general public’s reaction the Sitch and the rest of the gang, who are currently filming Season Three in Seaside Heights.

But, even if Season Two isn’t as huge as the phenomenon that was the first season, the Sitch could be back on our TV’s very soon on another reality television show – DANCING WITH THE STARS.

Now, we here at Hairpoof aren’t huge reality TV fans. We can do without The Bachelor/ette, Survivor, even the Real World, but Dancing With the Stars is amazing. We’d love to see the Sitch two-stepping with Cheryl Burke or Kym Johnson, and we’re sure the Sitch would love to cling to those scantily clad women. Mike’s manager has shot down the rumors saying they have no plans for the show at this time, but TMZ reports that the deadline for negotiations on the next season of DWTS is Monday, so we should know by then.
