Poor Tony Dovolani. I remember his name from Sarah Evans - she left him standing in mid-Paso Doble to rush out and get a divorce. Now Tony's got Kate - talk about luck of the draw! He's going to end up being a soap star just by association.

I'm baccccccck! I saw this today and I would probaly watch it since most of my shows are getting the axe, but then I saw Kate Gosselin and now you can forget it. I'll read your recaps sweetheart!!! I CANNOT STAND that media whore.

are you still not recapping? I don't watch but keep up via your comments. By the way I love Chelsie Hightower (she is from So You Think You Can Dance and I loved her there)

I'll write about it but won't recap the way I used to unless it turns out to provide material I can't resist using. Let's hope Kate gets booted off in the first week.

Laynie, I feel sorry for Tony Dovolani, too.

How could they not have Dmitry back? He was absolutely gorgeous! Well, at least Louis is going to participate.

I know! Wonder why he isn't on again this season?
