On Dancing With the Stars tonight, Ricki Lake shined as she glided across the dance floor with partner Derek Hough. Inspired by Kristie Alley to join DWTS, our Virgo girl was excited by the opportunity to lose weight and learn some new sexy dance moves. Ricki Lake’s already dropped one dress size. You go girl!
Our favorite Dancing With the Stars performer tonight was JR Martinez, former war vet and star of All My Children. A close second was David Arquette, who proudly announced he had been sober for eight months and his daughter Coco was the love of his life.
JR Martinez, born under the sign of Gemini, let his charming personality shine and guaranteed to become a DWTS fan favorite. Prior to becoming an actor, JR served in the Army and was stationed in Iraq. In 2003, Martinez was serving as a driver of a Humvee when his left front tire hit a landmine; he suffered severe burns to more than 40 percent of his body as well as smoke inhalation. Since then, JR Martinez has become a highly sought-after motivational speaker, traveling the country to spread his message of resilience and optimism.
After watching the first episode, we think that both JR Martinez and David Arquette will make the Dancing With the Stars final three. Both are lovable characters, who have an interesting story to tell, and DWTS fans I think will fall in love with both. Not to mention, both are incredible dancers. My personal favorite is JR Martinez, a true Gemini, always the entertainer. Who will be going home tomorrow night? Most likely George Clooney’s ex girlfriend, pretty to look at but a terrible dancer.
