KIRSTIN SAYS: Great Job, America! We Voted Off Margaret Cho, But Saved 'Bristol The Pistol' Palin!

It was a close call on Dancing with the Stars Oct. 5 — but ultimately, Margaret Cho was voted off and Bristol Palin is safe for another week! Wahoo!

Sadly, my irrational dislike for Brandy didn’t hold true for the rest of the Dancing with the Stars audience and the pop star was never in danger of getting cut on the results show Oct. 5. That said, if anyone deserved to get the boot, it was Margaret Cho — and thankfully, America chose to discontinue her dancing career.

The 41-year-old comedian received an 18 out of 30 for her dance the night before, which was the lowest score of the evening, but she thought the judges were too harsh.

“I think they were hard on me because they know I’m a real dancer and I appreciate that,” she admitted (delusional much?). Her dance pro partner, Louis van Amstel, agreed and said he loved her and would miss her.

Also on the chopping block were “Bristol The Pistol” Palin and her delightful Mark Ballas, who received a 19 out of 30. Luckily, Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke were only toying with our delicate emotions and “the teen advocate” was actually safe. What a relief — what would we have to talk about if Bristol wasn’t on the show? It’d be a tragedy!

Who do you will get the axe next week?

Actually, the order in which they named those who were safe doesn’t mean anything. It’s just their process of elimination. In other words, just because Bristol was in the bottom 2 doesn’t mean she was lowest in total next to Margaret Cho.

Should not be on this “family” show, her claim to fame is through her mother..she is not a role model.. this family scares me and I thought it was a sign when her scores came up 666….;-)

bette you wouldn’t even know who she was if it were not for her mother. if she sucks she sucks. another nobody shoved down the throats of the american public and making ridiculous money for doing nothing to boot. a true republican. find a real role model and quit deluding yourself she is worth your envy she is not.

Whether you like Bristol or not, I think she still deserves to stay a bit longer in DWTS, considering she is the only one who is not a celebrity. I know her mother was not love by many, so deal with her mother and not Bristol. It´s not her fault that her mother have another agenda. Bristol never have any experiences & trainings in dancing, singing, comedy or acting compare to other contestants, so I think being there to accept all the critics is truly brave enough for me. Giver her a chance, not much to ask!
