    Absolutely no one on that list I want to watch. If there's anything else worth watching on Monday and Tuesday nights, I might take this season off. Though I would really miss Tom...

    Are you kidding me?

    Carson Kressley and Ricky Lake?

    I'm in!

    Edited to add: oh, I can't wait for the week that the stars get to design the costumes for their pros.

    I guess the Lakers are confident that the lockout will continue, else Artest wouldn't be allowed to participate.

    Can't wait to see Nancy Grace fall down.

    Always had a thing for Hope Solo.:D

    The pairings won't be announced 'til tomorrow (the 31st) on GMA. I'm most curious who Chazz Bono is going to be paired with.

    Didn't Ricky Lake star in Hairspray on Broadway?

    I don't follow celebrities too closely, and certainly not the offspring of celebrities. So what is Chaz Bono's story?

    That was brought up last night and she said it 20+ years ago and it was mostly faked. P.S. It was the movie not the broadway version she was in.

    Daughter of Sonny and Cher. Now living as a man. Not sure if she/he has had the actual surgery yet "downstairs". Did recently have breasts removed.

    I'm wondering how this is going to work with lifts, etc? I'm guessing Chaz doesn't have the upper body strength of a natural born man? Or do the hormones that are given somehow make that happen? Wonder if Chaz will be able to do the lifts like the other men?

    Here is a question I'm almost afraid to ask, because I'm probably going to be yelled at for asking.

    But here goes: I wonder if they will present Chaz as just another guy or if they are going to go in depth talking about being transgendered, surgeries, etc?

    I usually watch DWTS with my kid, but to be honest I'm just REALLY not ready to have that conversation just yet. If they just say "This is Sonny & Cher's son, let's dance" then I would have no issue. But I have a feeling that's not going to be what happens. Just don't want to get into the whole transgender thing with her at this time.

    I know...I'm a horrible person. :( Go ahead and flame.

    I don't think you're a horrible person and you can choose to raise your children however you wish. When you feel they are old enough to understand I'd hope you'd teach them tolerance.

    Oh absolutely! Chaz is free to do whatever he wants with his life and I think he has the right to pursue life however he wishes!!

    Just that....you know...it'll bring up cutting off girl parts and replacing with boy parts and....just not ready to tackle THAT conversation yet!

    Yes....I am a chicken. Why do you ask? ;)

    I don't think you're horrible. I think that is a conversation that needs to be planned and not just spur of the moment because it gets mentioned on DWTS.

    And I'm sure they will mention it, week after week, as long as Chaz is on the show. Chaz was on a publicity tour to promote his book about his change. He had a series on OWN, and he was on Oprah and other talks shows discussing it. So I'm sure they will talk about it on DWTS. People go on there for the publicity, and DWTS wants 'stars' that bring in viewers for whatever reason.

    Aren't lifts illegal (at least until the very end of the show)? I think they have that rule because most (almost all) of the men celebrities won't be as good at lifts as the dance professionals.

    I don't think it'll matter unless Chaz gets to the very end.

    +1 or more, last few years I've said that.

    And take the season off and watch "The Sing Off". Much better show anyway.

    I'm just the opposite. I've never watched this show before but once I saw that Hope Solo was on it, I'll be tuning in this year, even if it is only to watch her segments and FF the rest. Once she goes, so do I.

    Okay, I'll ask; why did DWTS demand that Chelsie Hightower only appear on one episode of SYTYCD Season 8 (at least that's what she claims) if they weren't going to use her?

    Okay then. Sounds like an interesting season to say the least. I'm in of course, as always. We love this stuff over here. Looking forward to it! :D
