Did ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Make a Mistake?

Nicole Scherzinger, along with her partner Derek Hough, might have won season 10’s Dancing With the Stars contest, but is she going to keep the object of her efforts, her mirror ball trophy? No. Instead, she’s pawning off the gaudy thing to her mother, whom she says was the reason for doing DWTS in the first place. But that’s not the controversy. Some people — including fellow contestants on DWTS Season 10 — are now suggesting that while Nicole IS incredibly talented, she shouldn’t have won let alone been on the show. Why not? Because she’s actually a dancer on the Pussycat Dolls, the cabaret-style entertainment group she founded.

On the one hand, as a lover of dance myself, it was amazing watching her and partner Derek Hough. I’m glad I saw their performances. On the other hand, she is in fact a very talented dancer from the get go. As contestant Niecy Nash put it, “There were moments you couldn’t tell her from the pro dancers.” It’s kind of like when the Olympics ceased to be a competition solely for amateur athletes — which is why it was resurrected in the first place — and allowed in all manner of professional athletes. Sure, we want to see great performances, but is it fair to the other contestants? Or should DWTS go entirely towards having only contestants with dance skills? Wouldn’t you rather see and cheer on the contestants who gain skills throughout the season?


Are You Tired of Dancing With the Stars Yet?

Looks as if the Hough family has some sort of magic touch for dancing. Derek and Julianne Hough have both been on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ since 2007, and both have been winners (she twice, in the 4th and 5th seasons). While Julianne wasn’t on this season, Derek was, and he and his partner, Pussycat Dolls founder Nicole Scherzinger, took the title. I usually watch the last few episodes of each season, but only caught the 2nd last episode — both of which aired together. I guess they really were at the top of their game, and while I didn’t see many of the other couples perform, these two just had it together. Of course it helps that Nicole is also a dancer. (Isn’t that kind of cheating?) Though second runner up, Olympic athlete Evan Lysacek was only two points behind, so it was pretty close.

Of course, having not watched a single episode until the 2nd last one, I missed the entire DWTS Spring 2010 lineup, realizing after the fact that I missed out on seeing Pam Anderson, Shannon Doherty, and even astronaut Buzz Aldrin, but despite having a love of dance, and having watched nearly every season of DWTS, I just didn’t care about it this year. Could be because I have a crush on Julianne Hough and she wasn’t on. Even slinky Edyta Sliwinski and Anna Trebunskaya weren’t enough to get me interested. It could be just me losing interest in DWTS after 3+ years, but if it’s not, I’m wondering how the new ‘Got to Dance’ show premiering in fall 2010 will do. Sure, Paula Abdul will be a judge, but it’s a different format and won’t have the glitz of DWTS. Not sure if I’ll be watching ‘Got to Dance,’ but if Betty White gets on DWTS next season, I’ll definitely watch.

My money’s on Nicole Scherzinger. I don’t even know why she’s part of the roster. She’s been a professional dancer and performer for years. Doesn’t that make her overqualified? Hey, at least I can win some money by betting early.


Two Less Pussycats

Two members of the Pussycat Dolls have left the group and nobody in the entire universe is surprised.

Every the since the girls went from burlesque group to pop franchise in 2003, it was all about Nicole Scherzinger. I love the gal; she’s hot, but I feel sorry for the other girls who served as mere backup dancers and backup vocals. Can you even name the remaining four members other than Nicole? I didn’t think so.

We’ve seen PCD members come and go through the years, and we all know how Ms. Nicole gets preferential treatment, and, not to mention, a heftier paycheck compared to the other dolls.

Now, two of the Pussycat Dolls have had enough. Kim Wyatt and Ashley Roberts have announced that they’re quitting the group. Ashley wrote on her blog: “Yes I have left the Pussycat Dolls. I am so grateful to have the love and support of all of you. It was an amazing ride and I learned so much.”

As for Kim, she told Loaded magazine: “I’ve left the group. I am so thankful for everything the Pussycat Dolls has brought into my life. But I have to say there were just too many variables that I couldn’t agree with. So I decided to push on with my own life.”

Of course they’re trying to act as professional as possible, but we all know the rifts that go on off-stage. Kim said it best: “I wish that it was different because I love what we do on stage. I love being a Doll, but as far as the variables off-stage are concerned, I just couldn’t do it anymore.”

The group is reportedly reforming sometime this year, but I believe it’s going to be the same story: Nicole in front; four cats at the background. Meow.


From Pussycat Doll to Model

Now that she’s single again, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger can focus on her new stint. Some say it’s never too late to get into modeling, so the 31-year-old has just signed a contract with modeling agency Wilhelmina.

She isn’t the first celebrity to be signed by the upscale modeling agency. The likes of Fergie, Zoe Saldana, Terrell Owens, and Alexandra Richards have been working with the agency for years.

Nicole recently split from her boyfriend of two years Lewis Hamilton, a British racecar driver. According to the press release: “Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton can confirm that they have decided to go their separate ways. The two of them have decided to focus fully on their careers and will remain close friends.”
