Julianne Finished with DWTS?

I keep seeing articles saying that Julianne Hough won't be returning to Dancing with the Stars this Fall. Fine. She has her music career (and Chuck) to take up her time.

But is she never coming back, or is she just taking a reprieve for the ninth season? Can't figure that one out. I've found articles that contradict themselves, saying the dramatic 'never coming back' but then the accompanying Julianne-quote says "THIS FALL".

Sigh. Where is journalistic integrity? Just using a shocking headline or first sentence to draw the reader in? Tricky, tricky.

The Eighth Elimination... Good Grief!

Okay, so now I'm going to rant and rave for a while over tonight's elimination. Please do me a favor and click the link below to read my recap and play-by-play of the results show itself - thanks!

Moving forward...

What. The. Heck?! What the heck happened? Chuck and Julianne, seriously? Chuck was just hitting his stride. He was just in the process of releasing his inner Dancing with the Stars beast! And now he's GONE? I'm confused.

I'm also annoyed. It may be an unpopular opinion (maybe? I dunno), but I think the celebs should have to dance every week in order to continue on in the competition, so Melissa should've had to forfeit. I'm such a hard-ass, especially with her standing there sniffling and crying on national TV after she was saved to dance again next week. Boo-freakin'-hoo and get over it, chica. I wasn't really anti-Melissa before, but now, I'm not so sure.

People get injured. It's a part of life, especially when you're engaging in activities that can cause bodily harm. And dancing can cause said harm, duh! Even if you're a former ballet dancer and Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. I feel *sorry* for you, but I'm not going to *vote* for you. It annoyed me last night when she received a score for the group dance that she didn't take part in. And it annoys me more and more as time goes by. How is it fair for her to get a score that she didn't DO anything to earn?

Oh well. As DH always says, life ain't fair. Suck it up and move on!

But I'll miss Chuck and Julianne. I didn't think they were the best couple out there. Nope, they were on my list to head out the door, right after Ty and Chelsie. (Who are, of course, still standing. Boy, I'm bad at guessing this season! And I'm shocked that there are so many burly, manly-man rodeo riders and lovers out there watching DWTS, too!) But they had a lot of heart, and they certainly brought a lot of fun to the Ballroom Floor every week.

I'm super-de-duper excited to see what transpires now that we're down to five couples on this eighth season of Dancing with the Stars. It's pretty clear that Ty should head home next week. But after that? Not a clue as to what'll happen! I'm tired of seeing the judges be overly hard on Shawn because I think she's wonderful and would love to see her win it all. Gilles is nice to look at most of the time (though his hair scared me last night. Far, far too much volume), so he can stay for the finals, too. I've already given my opinion on Melissa. And 'Lil Kim. Ah, the season's queen of the overrated! I *like* Kim and Derek. I really, really do. But I think the judges have given her scores that she didn't really *earn* a few too many times now. Their much-lauded Jive? Lots of Derek dancing and Kim standing around. I was not impressed. And my not-impressedness continues on.

Well, time to head off to bed. Have a great week!

Who went home on Dancing with the Stars 2009 Spring season's eighth results show? You'll never guess!

Dancing with the Stars Spring 2009 - Week Eight

Last night's Dancing with the Stars was a good one. One of the best I've seen in quite a while, actually, in terms of the quality of dance. Definitely the best I've seen with 6 couples still in the mix! Here's my official recap, complete with snarky remarks:
