Tonight, the latest season of Dancing with the Stars debuted on ABC.
I have watched this popular program but one season, the year that featured Priscilla Presley. My interest was heightened because I am a huge Elvis fan. And I also think the world of his wife.
So I watched with great anticipation. How would gorgeous Priscilla do? The answer was quite pleasantly evident her first dance.
Watch her initial dance that starts about 2:48 in and remember, she is 62 years old.
Then a few weeks later, Presley was incredible again as she danced the rumba. Watch at 1:58 into the video as the 62-year old Priscila does the splits at exactly 2:31......SHE DOES THE SPLITS!!!
But this TV contest is about rigged as you can be. The old fart British judge chastised Presley. What the ***** was he watching?
The judges from day one were in love with the eventual winner, a figure skater.
My exuberance at the time was dampened by former FranklinNOW blogger (she has quit blogging from the site three times) Janet Evans who immediately criticized, not Presley's dancing or performance, but her cosmetic surgery. Take a look and read Evans' comments.
Evans' remarks were symbolic of a nation of women who, instead of cheering Presley's courage instead acted like cackling jealous hens.
My challenge to the petty Evans at the time stands. When she turns 62, I invite her to my house, we will move all the furniture, turn on the music, and she is more than welcome to tango, rumba, and do the splits in defiance of yours truly and Priscilla Presley.
Now, back to tonigt's broadcast of Dancing with the Stars.
The contestants include:
ESPN's Erin Andrews
And GULP Pamela Anderson
The fact is most male TV watchers have no interest in Dancing with the Stars. I didn’t except for one season.
This season the ABC brass has brilliantly come up with a super female lineup that will draw in more male viewers.
A guy faced being arrested to see her in the shower.
The world knows she can act. But can she dance? Inquiring minds want to know.
Could someone attend to Janet Evans and the steam coming out of every pore?
Oh, and how about former FranklinNOW blogger Fred Keller. I had no idea he was such a prude. Apparently pictures of pretty women send him into orbit.
New viewers are suddenly DWTS aficionados because deep inside their hearts, they are secretly, excitedly hoping for a wardrobe malfunction like the one that happened here....

Hey, Fred, and anyone else who is soooooooooooooooooo upset about this blog, please contact Mark Maley and tell him how God awful that no good Kevin Fischer is.
Why the absolute nerve, blogging about a popular TV show. With women. Attractive women. And they might have had. ..........GASPPPPPPPPPPPP!........plastic surgery.
And they can do the splits at 62.
Again, my living room is wide open to any and all jealous and petty school board members who foolishly think they can do better.
