    My bold ^^^^.

    Imagine a scio celebrity (or their agent/management team) reading Ms. Remini's words above, especially the bolded quotes.

    Ask, "Where's Shelly?" ----> Pay $300k for interrogations/sec-checks.

    Leave Co$? ----> Dance, get paid $$, retain your fan base, give/receive love and support.

    I am definitely going for her, but I'm going to be really torn with some of the other contestants - like Rhoda from Mary Tyler Moore with her brain cancer. I hope I remember to watch, because I really do want Leah to do well and keep feeling the love. How did Kirsty go when she was on there, do you know?

    Hi, PurpleRain :)

    I've never seen the show*, but Smurf posted somewhere here at ESMB that KA was on the show twice -- the 1st time she did 'meh'; 2nd time quite well. EDIT: Here's the link:


    *But will tune-in tomorrow night & vote/watch each Monday thereafter. :happydance:

    Oh damn! Alley did very well then. I feel like a nervous mother waiting for my kid to step up for a piano recital.

    Leah could pull in some serious money if she stays in a while:

    A lot of it depends on the star's fan base that votes for them, there have been better dancers that have been knocked out by a large call in vote for a popular star, like Kirstie. There is the star's ability to dance, and what they put into it, if they show up unprepared, have two left feet etc. which can alienate their fan base.

    So, it is a bit more than just a popularity contest.

    Thanks, Mimsey. :)

    I thought she did a very nice job, too.

    Hearing the song in KA's video above made me wonder which song Leah Remini will select for the premiere tomorrow night. (Since she's 43, she might get a groove on w/Kenny Loggins' "I'm Alright".)

    Do the contestants/participants choose the dance music themselves or is that a producer's choice?

    JB, at 8 tomorrow night -----> :tvhappy:
    JB, at 7 tomorrow night -----> sending blast email to friends/family/colleagues to tune-in :yes:

    Was that Kelly Preston at 3:39? (Such a supportive friend for all of two seconds as long as you don't go asking questions and making an annoying brouhaha about some cult leader's missing wife).
