Country singer Sara Evans quit Dancing with The Stars after turning what could have been a private marital breakup into a national sex scandal, but she’s not heading back to Nashville just yet. According to her attorney, Sara will be back for Tuesday night’s show– to dance around questions in an exclusive interview.
While we hope Tom Bergeron gets to do the dirty work (and the details are real dirty), we’re sure Barbara and Diane aren’t too happy over at ABC News (and Sara should have held out for the newsmags– she could have made some serious change), and we’re still waiting for answers to the real question: What does Sara want?
Sara went from second-class country singer to household name and darling of the tabloid infotainment shows last week when she simultaneously pulled out of the top-rated competition and accused her unemployed former congressional candidate husband Craig Schelske of cheating with the nanny, keeping a porn stash that included pictures of himself and other women, maintaining a “Craig’s List” of potential sex partners– and believe us, you don’t want to see his homemade music video of Sara’s “Suds in A Bucket.”
But you need to read a little farther down the notorious divorce filing, past all the sordid, embarrassing accusations (which Craig denies), to find why Sara went all Baldwin-Basinger on the guy: “Wife further alleges that husband has told wife that he is taking the children to Oregon and continually interferes with wife’s possession of and parenting time with the parties’ minor children.” Try taking the kids while mama’s dancing around in Hollywood, and mama’s lawyer’s gonna fight dirty…
If Sara’s smart, and judging from this broadside, she and her handlers are very crafty indeed, she’ll get an album, a TV movie and maybe even a sex tape (if Craig’s such a picture-taking perv, he must have made at least one with his wife) out of the scandal. Or a reality TV series.
