I won’t lie to you guys. I can’t watch “Dancing with the Stars” all the way through—it’s just so much filler. But that said, I do like to record it and fast forward to the performances. I have to say that last night, I was pretty impressed by the crew’s first efforts—from Chynna Phillip’s “I Dream of Jeannie” get-up to Chaz Bono’s gleeful smile as he danced. After the jump, the best, the worst, and most WTF performances of the night. Keep reading »
