So many stars, so much dancing. I couldn’t keep my finger off the fast forward button. This new format on Dancing with the Stars, where the stars stand around waiting to see who will dance next, is boring! Way too much time wasted with the dramatic pauses and the ominous red light. It was also totally unfair to those who had to dance in the clean-up spots.
I rant all about it in my full Dancing with the Stars recap, which you’ll find in the TV section of SheKnows.com.
Fringe was on last night but I haven’t watched it yet because that’s not a show you flip in and out of easily. On the other hand, Rachel Zoe Project is one of those shows so it fit in nicely during Dancing commercial breaks. It was fashion week, so Rachel and her entourage were off to New York City to see the sights. I can’t believe she doesn’t have to take notes during the fashion shows. I guess when you’re that passionate about clothing you don’t need to write down ‘canary yellow organza gown with ostrich feathers and human hair trim!’
Fall is exhausting! There are so many new shows to watch! Just have a look at what’s premiering tonight.
