Supahstah

I love Mary Catherine Gallagher. So, even though the show is really called Superstars of Dance, I always pronounce it as Supahstah in my best Mary Catherine Gallagher voice and then sniff my armpit fingers.

Moving on....

The Dancing Drama Queen and I have been watching this show and there is one itty bitty tiny thing about it that bothers the living fuck out of me:

Dear Michael Flattely -

You are NOT Irish. You were born in and raised in Chicago. Yes, I realize that there are a lot of Irish Americans in Chicago. Yes, I realize you are one of the best Irish step dancers there is. However, that does NOT give you the right to be the host of this show and talk throughout the whole show with an Irish accent. It bothers me and I must insist you stop. If you don't, I might be forced to come and pull a Tonya Harding on your Nancy Kerrigan ass. Don't fuck with me, fake Irish boy, as I'm a Irish American from New England area (ehhh, close enough to Boston for arguements sake) and we all know that the Boston Irish can and will kick ass.

Erin Go Bragh, motherfucker!

Girl you crack me up! It's so good to see you posting again. Now if I can just get back into it again too. :)

The show irks the snot out of me. It's trying too hard to be something more than it is, and that's annoying. Plus, too many dancers who aren't dancing! Duh, it's a dance show and you can't get upset if you score low b/c you didn't dance!!!!

Weren't you the one who watched Nip/Tuck? If so, it's coming back on tonight! Woot! Guilty pleasure, and oh so wrong. :)

I have watched the first epi, but not the second. Love what you said about Flatley- he was even saying something to the judges about "our country". I didn't know he wasn't Irish!

Glad you are back! Missed you...

I manage a website for a Midwest Irish newspaper, if you would ever be interested in writing a column for our website we would love to talk to you about your ideas.
