Season 7 of Dancing With The Stars starts tonight in a live 3 show event where 2 of the 13 couples will be eliminated! I am so excited!! I thought it was strange, though, that there wasn’t the normal hoop-la this year to build anticipation for the show – it is really starting up with very little promotional fan fare!! But, that’s OK. I don’t have any early predictions – I’m waiting to see what happens this first week! My early favorite to root for is Susan Lucci – I think she’ll do good — she is graceful and has been an entertainer most of her life, so she knows what it takes to rehearse and give it all she’s got. Cloris Leachman may surprise us, but even if she doesn’t stay in the competition very long, she gets a BIG A+ for her effort and guts for getting out there and trying to compete at age 82!!! I think they are over playing the athelete card this year with THREE! I’m also interested in watching Chef Rocco DiSpirito. After I see how they come out of the box this week, I’ll start having some stronger opinions on who has staying power and who may be among the ones to leave early!
The line up of stars this season is:
I’ll be watching…
