Dancing With The Stars Has A Winner - Brooke Burke Throws Shade At Erin Andrews

There were lots of perfect scores last night and then there was Candace Cameron Bure, who never really was great at all this season despite having Mark Ballas as her partner. Last night also had lots of performances, including one from Iggy Azalea that didn't really go as planned. It might have had to do with having her current boyfriend and a previous hookup in the same place at the same time. When all was said and done though, Maks is no longer the Susan Lucci of Dancing With The Stars. He and partner Meryl Davis finished on top and Derek Hough and Amy Purdy finished second. Candace and Mark finished a very distant third. Len Goodman also announced during the show that this might be his last season. Not seen on the show, but talked about yesterday by Brooke Burke was her thoughts that the show made a bad mistake getting rid of Brooke and bringing in Erin Andrews. Brooke says Erin is not the right fit for the show.

Brooke Burke should throw shade at Erin Andrews. She's useless.

SaintsFan said...

I don't watch this show but from reading about here, seems more soap opera than competition.

OneEyeCharlie said...

I just can't seem to work up any cares over DWTS. Probably doesn't help that I've never watched it.

Morning, Sandy. Morning, All. Afternoon, Violet.

sandybrook said...

Morning Charlie. The good news: this show is over, the bad news is The Batchelorette takes its place.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Morning Sandy, Saints, Charlie. I've never watched it either. Let's dance to the beat of our own disco ball. Or something.

Top of tha morning all
((Tips hat))

Violet said...

Hey all. I love Len. I didn't realise he judged on this show.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Heeey, Kristin! I had to chaperone a high school dance last night. I was clueless to 99% of the songs. Almost requested Lil Jon "Get Low", just to show them how to properly shake a moneymaker.

sandybrook said...

Morning Kristin and fancy. Got to feel percussion to dance to the beat and all Im getting is a hammer knocking concrete out of walls and floors :(.

Heather said...

OT I wanted to pop in and tell you guys how much I love reading and laughing at your comments in the morning :)

Thanks guys, I love each and every one of you, and I miss Lady Bruce.

Couldn't care less about DWTS...

Violet said...

Hi Heather. Lord knows I don't miss Lady Bruce. Assuming we are talking about the same person.

Ray Nicolet said...

I agree with you Heather..I miss Bruce.

Vera L- said...

Someone raised a really good point, the Olympic ice "dancer" beat the girl with no feet. Really?

(fwiw, I don't watch the show and I think Meryl looks like someone left her out in the sun too long and she started to melt a la Joan Rivers)

Brooke Burke has some balls! She's got the personality of wet toilet paper, actually tp has more life, so she does not have any room to talk about another pretty face.

Hammer_Girl said...

The chic on the left looks like one of the vamps from 30 Days of Night.

Tricia Shaw said...

Si iggy azalea's BF , Nick Young, is a LA Lakersplayer who was in audience...who was past hook up-Max I guess, or Derek Ho

Paint Chips said...

I said they would win before the first episode aired. And, they deserved to win. You could tell by Derek's expression that he knew he wasn't going to win.

I was thinking about Brooke BUrke last night. I'm so glad they replaced her. She always seemed to have a huge stick up her ass and was so serious. She's the one who isn't a good fit for the show.

TalksTooMuch said...

(((DIRTY BIRD!! ))) So nice to see you!

Hammer_Girl said...

Right back at ya babe!!!

canada girl said...

Brooke Burke had a bit too much wine to make a comment like that. I really like Erin Andrews, I find her hilarious and she wasn't as plastic as Brooke. The Iggy Azalea screw up was hilarious - she should have just taken out the earpiece to begin with, not announce to everybody that she has a problem in her ear. I thought Ariana Grande was more professional compared to her.

Gayeld said...

Loved the second season of this show. Drew Lachey was adorable. I had pretty much no idea who Nick and Jessica were, but I picked his side in the divorce just because he was so cute sitting in the audience supporting his brother.

Since then, I've been hit or miss. Mostly miss.

Presto said...

Brooke Burke is a bitter hater.

Erin Andrews is much more entertaining and funny.

Renoblondee said...

So glad they won! They deserved it! Erin totally grew on me she's funny as hell.
And guys, when I don't watch something such as Real Housewives and Teen Moms I generally don't post and bitch about it. Scroll.

Zoe Cialite said...

Agree with you, @Canada Girl. Brooke Burke should have stayed classy and kept her opinion to herself. I personally like Erin Andrews. She brought her personality to the interviews and she's just funny. I wasn't impressed with Iggy Azalea, both the performance and the song (and yes, they called that a song?!).

ItsCourtneyD said...

Good morning @oneeyecharlie

Sasha said...

Glad Maks finally won. I wanted anyone but Derek to win. The show announced Meryl and Charlie would dance together but only showed them on the floor done after a commercial break. WTF was that about?

Oh and Erin has more personality in her little toe than Brooke could ever have. Erin and Tom B. are a good fit together. They both have a sarcastic sense of humor and don't take themselves too seriously.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Morning, Courtney! How the heck are ya?

Lux said...

OFF TOPIC!! (Just so there are not more complaints)

TTM!! I just finished watching the Drag Race finale! Aaahhh I was so happy. The whole show was pretty great. The multiple Ornacias, Joslyn's surprise and a special guest appearance from Lola (she is too cute for words!) And what the heck is going on between Courtney and Chaz Bono, hey?

If you've already got another Drag Race convo happening in another post, let me know and I'll try to catch up <3

JSierra said...

Helloooo

plokzy said...

I thought iggy's past hookups were ASAP rocky and T.I. No idea there was others. That girl gets around tho, some people you can just tell

Don't watch tge show, love hip-hop. She seems like a completely odd fit for this format...

JSierra said...

H3lllooo everybody. Let's vote DWTS Enty off the island, who

JSierra said...

Is with me?
Fingers prematurely ejaculated, oops.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Someone killed JSierra.

Humor Me said...

Greetings all - love the comments. As a long time DWTS viewer, I agree with the comparison to soap opera. It's to the point of silly.
Very happy to see Maks win, and with a partner who was very much his equal not only in dance but handling his moods.

Lastly, after seeing the bloopers aired, the show should offer the dress rehearsal for viewing. Bet the ratings would be sky-high.

La Minette Grincheuse said...

Every season I try to quit DWTS, but it keeps drawing me back. It is fun, you get to see people totally out of their element trying to make it work, interesting storylines, Derek Hough's choreography, and of course, Tom Bergeron. This season I was an Erin doubter, but now I'm on that crazy train. She is fresh, fun, funny, and much better at the live interviews than Brooke. She keeps Tom on his toes (which makes him even better).

Tragic if Len doesn't return. They'll need to find another serious judge to replace him - perhaps Louis Van Amstel?

And +1 to the idea of giving access to the dress rehearsal footage - that would be brilliant!

Pazazz said...

I love drag race. My new favorite phrase to say is " oh no she betta don't " . I was so happy Bianca won. And yes what is up with Chaz and Courtney. After their part aired I was like hmmm I wonder how sex would work with them. Lol

TalksTooMuch said...

I was so happy too, Lux and Pazazz! I did NOT understand the Chaz Bono thing either, but it was the first time he came across as totally dude for me, I could always see Chastity before, lurking

Lux said...

Yeah he did not look good. Like, kind of unhealthy or perhaps just tired. Did anyone else notice the stank face on Visage when Laganja was on stage being interviewed? Omg I loved it so much! Couldn't stand LE. She should have been sent home sooner and April Carrion should have stayed, she was super cute and her costumes were amazing.

TalksTooMuch said...

He looked tired for sure, but what's the deal with all the time with Courtney? ? Odd..

Michelle Visage CLEARLY hated Laganja, whom I can't say I dig either, but you can be civil, ya know? I loved Alaska and was so sad there wasn't more of her

califblondy said...

Erin was very bitchy in the rehearsal footage.

califblondy said...

I thought I was over this show but got sucked back in. Maks and Meryl were awesome. I'm so glad Maks finally won. Brooke needs to shut it. I'm not crazy about Erin, but Brooke added nothing to the show.

Pazazz said...

Viasages face was everything lol typical jersey girl (I'm from jersey). I hope Alaska is back for all stars. I was kinda sad when I found out that she broke up with Sharon.

ItsCourtneyD said...

@oneeyecharlie good!! How are you??

TalksTooMuch said...

Iknorite, Pazazz?? They were a good couple I thought! I didn't see Sharon Needles's season, though, not all of it anyway. I've just seen the "go back to Party City where you belong!" which I thought was hilarious.

Wing-Ding Weisenheimer said...

What planet is Meryl originally from, anyway?

Miss Demeanor said...

Detroit.

canada girl said...

I would love to see the dress rehearsal footage! Now that the show is so old you really start cheering for the pros more than the celebrities - I'd love to see the interactions in the rehearsals and all the love triangles play out among the cast (Maks + Peta, Maks + Karina, Maks + ....)

FS said...

I sort of understand the comments about Meryl's very unique face. I had a hard time watching them at the Vancouver Olympics, I thought she looked like a premature fetus. But something in her face has changed a little bit in the last few years and I think she is exotic and beautiful in her very unusual, almost freaky way.

Very happy she and Maks won. I didn't watch the show at all, but I watched their freestyle on youtube and it is breathtaking.

Sunny said...

Skeet skeet skeet!

Lux said...

You could see in the episode where he was the guest judge, that Chaz was completely in love with Courtney. She is pretty fame hungry so I wouldn't be surprised if she was stringing him along for some industry connections. And to meet Cher.

I looooove Alaska!! She is so brilliant and so funny. I was also really sad to hear about her and Sharon. Like TTM, I haven't seen much of Sharon's season, but they looked like they had such a good thing going.

I want to know what Adore meant when she said she had heard things about Laganja. The scene was cut to make it look like she was talking about her being fake, but there was definitely something more personal that she was referring to. Seeing Adore cry broke my heart, I wanted to scoop her up and hug her.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hmmm, I don't know, Lux!! But BeckyMae and I were gabbing about it yesterday in OT also, see if there was something we forgot to mention.

I looked for Paris is Burning on Netflix, not here dang it! Will have to look online

Bunni said...

I thought this season was one of the best. Candace Cameron should have been 5th. It was a toss up for 4th between ice skater dude & James. Meryl & Maks were were magic. They deserved the win. Amy was amazing, but Meryl was the one.

DearErin said...

Meryl reminds me of Princess Jasmine. I adore her!

cowbulls said...

Erin is drop dead gorgeous and also pretty funny. Brooke is just being catty.
I miss Julianne Hough's legs.
