    I'll be interested to see how Buzz gets on!

    PS Just reading the previous comment - how long have you been giving advice on mortgages Trav? LOL

  1. Evan Lysacek!! *jumping up and down*

  1. Marsha says:

    My initial reaction to the list of stars was well, less than exciting. But ok, I've had that reaction with their list before so, we'll see how this season goes..one or two of these people I could do without, and using the word 'star' just doesn't apply to them.................

  1. My vote is on Niecy Nash -- she's one funny lady!

  1. Travis says:

    Akelamalu: Silly spammers!

    Julia: I was surprised he didn't take some time off after the Olympics. But I guess it's to his advantage because he'll be in great shape.

    Marsha: I always just wait and see.

    Lois: I hadn't heard of her before. It's going to be fun!

  1. I'll be curious to see how Buzz does, too. I loved it when they had Marlee Matlin on. Just an FYI, Evan Lysacek graduated high school with my nephew. My sis sent me a text about that when he was skating in Vancouver. So now we get to watch him dance, too.

    I grinned over Pamela Anderson's picture. She looks like herself, not someone trying to look like a dancer. She's all bombshell, whether one likes her or not.

    Interesting mix!

    I must be totally out of the celebrity loop - there were only a couple names there that I recognized at all!

    I'll be looking forward to all of your great reviews, Travis - no one does 'em like you do!
