Breaking News

Or not.

First, I have to confess that I am addicted to Dancing With The Stars and like to watch both episodes on Tuesday so I can see who gets voted off.

If you don’t watch it, this post will mean absolutely nothing to you so go ahead and click off now.

PhilBillPaul has no interest in this show. I have to review the good, the bad and the ugly with my mom or my friend Toni in North Carolina.

Last week I couldn’t stop myself. I had to send Toni a text about a contestant who I really don’t know much about.

Nothing against him or snowboarding but who’s with me on this one?


Louie’s resemblance to an…

Oompa Loompa

disturbs me a bit every time he dances.

Toni agreed and text back “Member of the Lollipop Guild”

I knew she would get it.

Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory is one of my favorite movies of all time.

Every time he starts dancing, I start humming…

Oompa Loompa doompety doo
I’ve got a perfect puzzle for you
Oompa Loompa doompety dee
If you are wise you’ll listen to me

Side note: I’m rooting for Donny Osmond because I appreciate a white man from my generation being able to dance.

And in full disclosure I loved, loved, loved the Michael Jackson tribute last night because we wore his albums out back in the day when he was a young black man. 😉

These are just my personal opinions and of course, I’d love to hear yours if you are a fan of the show.

Which I’ve always thought should be called “Dancing With The Stars Who Are Sometimes Not Stars or Have Never Been Stars.”

Next week tell me if you start singing “Oompa Loompa” when Little Louie (whom I’m sure does not want to be called Little Louie or Oompa Loompa or Oompa Louie or Oompa but I can’t stop myself) starts dancing.

    Donny’s my man too! I’ve had a crush on him since I was a tween and a poster of him hung on my bedroom wall!!

    Ok, I admit it, I never miss it! The 3 men in my house think I’m a nutcase but I do find them glancing at bits/pieces when I’m watching my taped versions in peace. Last night my 14 yr old asked me not to delete so he could watch the MJ tribute again:) The Louie comparison-right on! Feel free discuss to future episodes with this addict as well. Donny all the way!

    I loved your comparison because it is totally accurate. I can’t watch him dance! Although I think you should have mentioned Aaron Carter haha. After last night I like Donny Osmond but I still kinda like Melissa Joan Hart and am still mad you think she is a goober.

    Oh THAT’S where I recognize the face. Too funny, but right on the money! I am not a big fan of the show but hubby and 10 ten year old boy, LOVE it. Yeah, go figure!

    I love DWTS too and thought the MJ tribute was great. I’m also rooting for Donny.

    I have to tell you that my friend’s little 2 year old granddaughter in going to be an Oompa Loompa for Halloween. She loves them!

      Looks like we have some Donny fans here!! We all might need to start dialing in (I’ve never actually voted, I am a non-participating viewer)!

      @Marti–What a great Halloween costume idea!! Do they sell those wigs or is her mom fixing her hair like that. I’d love to see a picture of that!! 🙂
