This smile has a shelf life of 24 hours.

Oh, it’s not looking good for Michael Bolton.

To crawl out of a doghouse [wince], wearing that awful polka-dot jacket [shudder] only to do something that can’t really be described as a Jive [shakes head] and then have it torn to shreds by both Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli [cower], who then fight over who’s being more cruel?

That’s what I call a bad night.

On top of that, the poor guy had laryngitis. He should’ve stayed in bed — in Germany, with David Hasselhoff.

On the other end of the spectrum, Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough had the top scores on “Dancing with the Stars” Season 11 for the second week in a row.

And this week, no one else seemed close. They are far and away the frontrunners after only two weeks. Audrina Patridge & Tony Dovolani were next in the rankings, but they weren’t nearly as good.

Is Jamie Lee Curtis going to sit in the audience every week to watch Jennifer Grey? She should just go on the show already.

I’m worried.

Does anyone else remember last season and the heat Nicole Scherzinger took for being too good too soon? Sure, she eventually won but a lot of people still hold grudges against her for being too much of a pro.

And a lot of people (including, it seemed some of his fellow pros) were frustrated that Derek got another great dancer. That was back with Nicole. And now he’s got the best one again, in Jennifer. Is a backlash coming?


Is Derek just such a good teacher and choreographer that it only looks like he always gets the best dancers? Maybe if Derek had … uh … Michael Bolton, he could’ve saved him from the doghouse. Chelsie Hightower is good, but she’s not that good.
