DWTS: Kristi Yamaguchi gets down and Cheryl Burke gets a real partner

Thursday, February 21, 2008

On the finale of Dance War - and you know how I felt about that show - the new contestants were announced for Dancing With The Stars - and one of them is Asian American figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi who will be paired with dancer Mark Ballas - and I while I couldn't stand Dance War I do like some DWTS because where else can you see Penn Jillette try and ballroom like the pros?

At the same time, it's nice to see that AA dancer Cheryl Burke finally got a partner who wasn't a bust this time around (no offense Wayne - you're still tops in Vegas babe) so maybe she'll actually have a shot at winning this time around.
