       Breaking news regarding the competition on Dancing With The Stars…Misty May Treanor has sustained an injury that will be taking her out of the competition.  She has injured her Achilles tendon; it will possibly required surgery.  This also means that the injury could have long term impact for her, with her volleyball career. Last year the show suffered a shock when Christian De La Fuente was injured as well.  He was blessed to have healed after having surgery to his shoulder.   Watch this evening to hear an update on Misty Treanor’s health.

       With last weeks scoring results, Kim Kardashian left the competition as well.  So this leaves those remaining in the competition a little shaken up.  The dancing is strenuous at Dancing With The Stars; and, injuries are a possibility for both the stars as well as the dancing pros. This week Saturday, during practice with his partner Brooke Burke, Derek Hough blacked out after hitting his head on the floor after tripping and falling. The week before this week’s injury, Karina was temporarily sidelined by an ankle injury…she recovered quickly and was able to compete.  Who will excel this week and who will falter in the heat of the battle for excellence.  One thing is for sure…this show never lacks for excitement in it’s competition.  Who are you rooting for?

      Tonight, there will be a trio of contestants to remember, on dancing with the stars.  Kristi Yamagucchi and her partner Mark will go head- to- head (or feet- to- feet, as the case may be) with Jason Taylor and his partner Edyta  &  Christian de la Fuente and his partner Cheryl.

       This finale will be something to see.  Jason and Christian are new life-long friends according to all of the media buzz.  Kristi says it is time for another female celebrity winner to claim the trophy.  Tonight, they will compete for the final time.  Who will take away the trophy?

        Kristi barring any catastrophe is far and away the most skilled.  However, Jason has a huge following and is looking pretty smooth out there; but, Christian is strong in well-wishers because of his arm injury, weeks ago during competition.  He is scheduled to finally have the surgery on Friday for the ruptured tendon in the bicep. 

         Will Christian have the sympathy votes to get him the trophy?  He has definately stepped up his skill set in the last couple of weeks…and, has definately earned the right to be in the finale.  They all have.

       Dancing With The Stars continues tonight…it is getting down to the wire.  Who stays, who goes…every week…nobody knows.  Last week was awesome and each week i root for Marissa and all of the contestants…knowing that someone, absolutely has to leave.  They are all so good…but, i just can’t help rooting for Marissa and Tony…they exude such light, joy, laughter and fun…i hate the thought of them leaving.  Yet i know, they are not the most popular contestants. 

      Kristi is just absolutely amazing with her skill and precision.  Jason has grown by leaps and bounds, Christian with the injured arm danced better than he did before the injury; i thought :); in any case, I think skill-wise….Marissa gets huge marks for the amount of growth she has achieved…but, is she popular enough to stay in the competition.  I hope she is…send some votes her way!

        It is monday once again, and that means that it is another week in the drama that is Dances With The Stars.  It will be a praying Christian, and his partner Cheryl, that will will perform this evening; while many will wonder if it is wise to push his competition in this dance with the ruptured tendon in his bicep. 

          Last week, Christian de la Fuente gamely extended his arm to Cheryl, to pick her up off of the floor, where she fell when he could not support her during the dance, after his injury.  If he doesn’t perform to his expected level…it will be, his last week. 

           Realistically, is it even wise to encourage him to delay the surgery, that his arm needs, purely to stay in the competition?  I think even though the judges and the audience admire his willingness to hang in there…there is no LOGICAL way that he can possibly perform in the way that he needs to do, to compete with his peers.

         It is an honor to win Dancing With The Stars…but, in a few weeks the glory of it will wear off and yet, his health and well being is for life.

         It is the morning after; Shannon Elizabeth from Dancing With The Stars was let go from the competition.  It was sort of one of those shows where one minute it looked certain that one thing would happen and then something completely different changed the course.

          I was thinking that Shannon would be the one to go until Christian de la Fuente was injured; and then, i thought…well, maybe it was exactly what they said at first…a pulled/strained muscle.  Then when the show started up….the drama increased; and i second guessed myself. Ooops…they were building up the tension, insinuating that maybe the injury would put him out of the running.

      Finally, it was revealed that Christian had spoken to the doctors after an MRI and he needs to have surgery on his arm as he has a ruptured tendon in his bicep.  However, just when the audience thought…he was leaving…Christian announced that the doctor gave an ok to continue with the competition if he had been voted to stay. 

          Wow…i can’t imagine a doctor saying…it would be ok to continue to put that kind of strain on the arm if he was injured that badly.  Truthfully, why would someone want to risk permanent damage?  I mean, sure…Christian has worked hard to stay in the competition…but, please…this seems a bit serious.

       In any case, there it is…Christian was voted to stay and that meant that the bottom two competitiors were Shannon/Derek and my long shot Marissa/Tony.  I felt bad for Shannon she is mourning her loss.  She said that she made a lifelong friendship with Derek.   She seemed pretty sad…but, i also rejoiced that Marissa and Tony were given another week to display their wonderful teamwork.  Gotta love this show, dont ya think?

        Tonight’s episode of Dancing With The Stars was filled up to the last minute with drama; partly because of Christian’s arm injury.  He has to have surgery because of a bicep tendon rupture from last evening’s performance. 

         Christian talked to the doctor, right before tonight’s show; and, he said that it would be ok to delay the surgery if Christian was able to stay in the competition.  Now that is commitment.  The voters, along with the judges scores did in fact keep him in the competition.

       So, it was an smiling, beautiful Shannon Elizabeth, who was obviously a bit emotional, who will say Ta Ta to her fans this week…she is out of the competiton.  The bottom two positions were taken up by Shannon Elizabeth and her partner Derek, and the other couple was Marissa and Tony.  I am feeling badly for Shannon and Derek…but, i am thrilled that Marissa has another week in the competition.  I was very proud of her performances this week. 

         Everyone has been so loving with each other…meaning the competitors.  They are all very supportive of one another.  So…another week begins…here is ’til monday!

         Once again, it is anyone’s guess who is leaving Dancing With The Stars.  One week a couple will be praised up and down by the judges and then find themselves because of the audience voting down in the bottom of the competition.  This week who will wave TA TA on Tuesday on Dancing With The Stars?

        For the most part…the dancing is coming up a notch or two every week.  But, Monday evening…Christian de la Fuente injured his arm halfway through his and Cheryl’s dance.  This earned them a lower score because, as Carrie Ann Inaba said…we will only judge you on what we saw.  She did compliment him on being there for Cheryl when he was obviously in pain.

        Marissa and Tony outdid themselves and earned very nice scores by doing so.  Kristi was fabulous as usual…she and her partner Mark…really shine each time they perform.  Sometimes, i think they score her lower just because they feel that she is a bit skilled above the other competitors…the judges expect more out of her.

         Mario and Karina did a fine job.  The judges keep bringing the attention to Mario’s age…what does that have to do with anything.  I think he is doing a fine job keeping up with Miss Karina and her talents.

          Shannon Elizabeth and her partner Derek have graceful nice moments and then they seem to have some really awkward moments that cant be covered up.  I think Shannon’s time is coming to an end.  She probably would have already been gone except for Derek’s popularity.

        Jason and Edyta did a nice job…and for once…Edyta wore more clothing than normal for her usual performances on the show.  This was nice…you could concentrate on their dancing as opposed to her skin.  She is a wonderful dancer and the focus should be on her partner…not on her costume of the week.

          So…Tuesday evening we will all be glued to the television sets waiting to see who will be saying Ta Ta…ya’ll.
