Dancing off the Edge

with Jenny T. Partridge

Dancing with the Stars…

Posted by jennytpartridge on February 19, 2008

Cele has done a great job recapping Dance Wars, which I never got a chance to watch. See, there’s this job at a certain agency and it requires me to work nights and long hours…. No, it’s not the CIA. I KNOW you were thinking that….Jenny Partridge and the CIA. The two just go hand in hand….

Anyway, the announcement of the next lineup for DWTS was announced, as Cele said.

Actress Marlee Matlin

Magician Penn Jillette

Hairspray stage star Marissa Jaret Winokur

Radio host and actor Adam Carolla

Olympic ice skater Kristi Yamaguchi

Latin heartthrob Crisitian de la Fuente

Tennis star Monica Seles

Singer Mario

Actor Steve Guttenberg

NFL Dolphins Football star Jason Taylor

Actress Shannon Elizabeth

Actress Priscilla Presley

I think this is REALLY cool. The coolest lineup yet. I mean, if Penn Jillette’s partner makes him mad, will he make her disappear (or spurt blood?)? Do ice skating and dance REALLY have that much in common? Can you turn that many times without the aid of a blade and some ice? Can Marlee Matlin (one of my heroes) really hear the music, even though she’s deaf? All in all, it’s going to be great fun to watch.

So how about you? Any thoughts on the new lineup?

Oh, and don’t forget to check out the cover for POINTE AND SHOOT, the third Jenny T. Partridge Dance Mystery, coming out May 6 from Berkley Prime Crime.

    I totally wondered about Marlee Matlin. I think she has mixed possiblities here. She won’t get screwed up by the music and won’t be bothered when the musicality differs from the music tempo and rhythm. But because she can’t here the music she also might not get the nuance.
