The gayest show on TV (and that’s saying something these days, bless Judy) is finally tinkering with the idea of bringing a same sex couple onto Dancing With the Stars. They got the idea from Israel, who’s version of the show is having crazy success with the idea. The catch? It’s most likely gonna be a girl, because people are more comfortable with lesbians. Are they? I’m sure as hell not, but I have a lesbian aunt that used to throw balls at my face to teach me how to catch and show up to my tap recitals in suits to point and laugh and then punch my stomach afterwards to “tighten the flub”. I don’t want a lesbian on Dancing With the Stars. I don’t even want one at the family Christmas party, ok?
Portia de Rossi would be their first choice, of course, because she’s married to Ellen (tons of free publicity) and she doesn’t look like one of the “scary” gays.
Glad to see the show opening its mind, and I guess going the lesbian route feels a little bit more unpredictable. Asking a gay guy to come on a show with this much glitter is like the NFL deciding they should get a straight person to throw a ball. Let’s just pray Rosie O’Donnell doesn’t hear about this. You know she’ll be all over that. She’ll be hilarious and fun for the first two weeks and then start moaning on about depression and how Bush took down the twin towers during her practice sessions. Actually, that sounds kinda fun. We’ll see what happens soon!
