Drama with the Stars

Seeing people so concerned with the gossip behind DWTS kinda makes me wanna barf like I drank a whole bottle of tequila on my own. I'm not even going to specify which drama because it's always the same story.

Two people had a disagreement.
The media blows it out of proportion.
Everyone believes only what they've been shown.

Well, this ain't Clue, ok? Can you imagine what YOU would look like if someone followed you around your job all week and condensed everything you did down to about two minutes? Can you imagine what rivalries might be assumed? Can you imagine what an asshole it might make you look like?

If someone only has two minutes to show 40+ hours worth of work, what are they going to choose? DRAMA: Fights, insults, jokes taken out of context, emotional outbursts, and creative editing to make it look like all those things happened even if they didn't. No one would show you and your co-workers all hangin out in the break room having a good time, or the other 2998 minutes of the week you're all getting along and doing fine.

Besides, WHO THE FUCK CARES?! It doesn't relate to the actual DANCE aspect of the show. Still, if you google the names of anyone on the show, star, pro, or judge, your top hits are more likely to be about gossip and stupid crap than dancing.

I'm so tired of this. Aren't you tired of this? Isn't everyone tired of this? Don't you just want to sit back and watch the dancing? If you google Chipper Jones, you'll find mostly baseball info, his stats, his bio, video clips of good plays he's made.....and he cheated on his wife with a Hooters babe!

If you google "Derek Hough" or "Len Goodman" or "Cheryl Burke" you'll get the following:

over the top fan pages
video clips of everything BUT dancing

GUH! If you care more about that crap than the dancing, you need to put down the bonbons, your ass off the sofa, and start dancing. When you start dancing and then you see it on TV, you'll care about it more than you'll care if Maksim Chmerkovskiy scratched his balls.

I know, I shouldn't care at all about DWTS, but it's the best show around for promoting dance and I hate seeing the dance aspect constantly reduced and the bullshit aspect amplified. Don't you think there's enough bullshit in the world as it is?
