So now that we've seen Brooke being terrible, let's watch a clip package of how hard she works with her three kids. I refuse to believe that she doesn't have a nanny or something. Then she does hair and makeup, and then they have a dress rehearsal. Did you know that Brooke and Tom use a teleprompter? And that in the backstage interviews, Brooke is on her own? Gee, you can't tell, based on how horrible she is when freelancing it and how wooden she is when reading. She's no Tom Bergeron. But then, no one is.
Then Tom and Brooke screw up and both start to read about the next safe couple, which is...Erin and Maks. And Tom takes the blame for it, but I'm sure it was Brooke's fault. Joining them on the safe side are...Chad and Cheryl. WOOOOO! I know Ochocinco is going to tear it up next week. I am confident.
Now we get to find out who will be in the bottom two with Pam and Damien. It's either Shannen and Mark or Kate and Tony. They do it weirdly, by talking about all three remaining couples when we already know that Pam and Damien are in the bottom. When they show Kate and Tony, Tony is just laughing. And they finally reveal that Kate and Tony are safe, of course, and Kate finally shows an emotion when she jumps and hugs Tony and screams.
So who's going home, Pam or Shannen? And it's... Shannen and Mark. I feel badly for Shannen; she was way better than about half the couples. But I'm kind of glad that Mark will be gone. In her exit interview, Shannen says that she knows she's not a dancer, and then they reveal that Mark is injured and would have had to take six weeks off anyway, so Shannen would have danced with Mark's dad Corky. THANK GOD WE WERE SPARED THAT! As much as Mark bugs me, Corky bugs me even more. Shannen seems happy that she got to dance for her dad, but also happy that she's done, so I guess it's not so bad. And maybe people will vote for anyone but Kate next week and get her off. Although I'm enjoying the trainwreck, just a little. But not for too long. No Master P, please.
