It’s a TOTAL INJUSTICE that Shannen got voted off last night on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ while Kate — who doesn’t know her left foot from her right — got to stay! Guess who’s better for ratings?
Is there a conspiracy afoot on Dancing With the Stars? How could America “vote” off Shannen Doherty? With a two-night total score of 38 points, Shannen was clearly out-performing Kate Gosselin, who trailed behind Shannen by seven points. Correct me if I’m wrong, but is this show not a dance competition?
It’s becoming very clear to HollywoodLife.com that Kate, knowing she won’t be able to survive in the competition based on her dancing skills alone, is purposely stirring up serious drama, like that totally staged fight with partner Tony Dovolani on the March 29 episode. As long as she remains entertaining, she hopes America will keep her on the show.
When I first found out Shannen was going to be on the show, I was excited for her. As you all know, she’s had a rough time on TV in her career. Off-camera disputes with producers and co-stars led to her being pushed out early from both of her hit TV shows, Beverly Hills, 90210 in 1994 and Charmed in 2001. But instead of achieving the success I’d hoped for, it looks like Shannen has been ousted early yet again.
I was also shocked that Pamela Anderson came close to elimination last night. Despite having a total of 43 points — yes, that’s 12 more than Kate had — Pam was voted into the bottom two, and had to sweat it out under the under the red spotlight until finally learning she was safe at the end of the episode.
Speaking of shockers, what do you all think of former astronaut Buzz Aldrin, 80, being the first to learn he was safe from elimination last night? Yes, little old men are fun and entertaining, but how much longer will he be able to survive based on that? With a total score of 26 points so far, is it fair that his charm may keep him in the competition over more deserving dancers?
