Bonnie Says: 'DWTS' Tony Dovolani is the Happiest Man in America with Partner Audrina Patridge NOW v. Kate Gosselin Last Season!

‘DWTS’ fans: Have you noticed the smile on dance pro Tony Dovolani’s face this season? He’s beaming! And here’s why!

In photo after photo, video after video of Tony with partner Audrina Patridge, he radiates happiness and tons of confidence that he’s got a shot of winning the competition with his new partner.

What a Dancing with the Stars makeover from last season, when he was paired with Kate Gosselin and the theme for the pair was tears, tension … and Kate’s two left feet.

Now, Tony and Audrina are in second place after two weeks of competition and Audrina has been described by normally-acerbic judge Bruno Tonioli as a “beautiful show pony.” Bruno also gushes that Audrina’s “got everything this competition needs!”

But more than that, videos of Audrina and Tony practicing reveal two dance partners clapping hands, smiling, laughing, and attacking their challenge with gusto. “You’re really good,” Tony tells Audrina. She “works so hard … she picks up things so quickly,” Tony tells the camera.

“I’m so excited, we’re doing the cha-cha!” squeals Audrina. “I really trust Tony and I let it fly.” She also adds that she’s not going out at all with friends so she has no distractions from her DWTS work.

By contrast, poor Kate had the hard combo of a divorce, eight children, an out-of-shape body and no natural affinity for dancing to deal with! She was totally stressed, rather than enthused by her DWTS challenge.

“Nothing in dancing is natural to Kate,” Tony revealed last season to DWTS fans. And he moaned to Kate herself, “Why don’t you pay attention to my teaching?”

“He feels like I undermine him as a teacher,” Kate admitted, after she complained that he wasn’t teaching her in a way SHE could learn.

“I’m a little baffled right now — I’ve never been questioned about my teaching,” an exasperated Tony admitted in rehearsal. And then, he even told Kate, behind the scenes, “I quit” — as she burst into tears.

Let’s just say, ladies, that it wasn’t a marriage made in heaven hmm!

But now, hooray for Tony, whose reward this season is Audrina. Take a look at our pics and videos and you’ll see what I mean! Good luck Tony and Audrina!

Our family actually LOVES watching DWTS this season. Tony deserves some ‘dancing’ happiness! All of the cast members are great this season and it’s so nice not to see the whole ‘vibe’ marred by one rotten apple like it was last season.

It actually makes me ill to even type the name Kate Gosselin, the most self-entitled, no-talent, cold-hearted, ME ME ME person in the world. For the first time ever, I am voting this year, because Tony deserves to win after what he put up with last season.

Tony probably isn’t the only one happy.

That entire DWTS crew is breathing a collective sigh of relief now that Kate Gosselin is gone.

Who wants to deal with a know-it-all drama queen with no rhythm, two big left feet, attached to two big heavy legs?

Of course, definitely he is. Not only Audrina Patridge is pretty, she is no “Drama Queen”. She´s easy to work with, that´s all dance instructors dream! Although these instructors are there to help these amateur artists to dance, but they have also common goals and ambitions to win the competition, a big honor and prestige to their careers too.

So happy Tony got a better partner this time. Kate was awful she wasnt even trying. Bruno was mean to Michael Bolton he should have said those things to Kate she was 10 times worst Thats why sometimes I think they are told what to say if not why wasnt Kate told she was awful by Bruno is he playing favorites. Go Tony

Tony’s happy with Audrina because he’s sleeping with her. Scandalous affair. Wouldn’t be the first time he’s cheated on his wife either.
