Pink Saturday - Dancing with the Stars

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Stop by her place to see the many other pink items people are sharing.

I love watching Dancing with the Stars. It's on every Monday and Tuesday nights. I have a close friend who lives in Jackson, Mississippi, and I telephone her on those nights so that we can watch the show together. We visit during the commercials, and mute our telephones when the show comes back on. Our husbands actually put up with this!

The costumes are amazing, and I've noticed that pink is often worn. Of course, that made me think of Pink Saturday.

From an earlier episodes this season:

Maurice Greene and Cheryl Burke. She's my favorite professional dancer. She's won the trophy in two of the past seasons!


The photo above is Inna Brayer and Ted McGinley--he left the show waaay too early, as far as I'm concerned.


Here are Kim Kardashian and Mark Ballas--she's been voted off.


Striking a pose is Tony Dovolani with Susan Lucci, a soap-opera star.

The following pictures are from this past week:

Lacey Schwimmer and Lance Bass have irritated one of the judges.


Rocco DiSpirito and Karina Smirnoff were spared this week because Misty Mae was injured and forced to leave the show.



Cloris Leachman, who at age 82 can do what I cannot! She's funny, and that talent is what's keeping her on the program. She cannot dance, but she can extend that leg, crack jokes, and bounce around, especially in low-cut dresses!

Here's Derek Hough and Brooke Burke--I think that she could go all the way.


Kym Johnson and Warren Sapp--this large football player can dance so gracefully. You have to be in awe. He might go all the way. (If you're keeping count, that's two who I think can win this thing.)

Reminders:
  1. I'm giving away three books. Look over at my sidebar.
  2. Remember Blue Monday is fast approaching. Come and play!
  3. Happy Pink Saturday!

This makes an enjoyable post for Pink Saturday, thank you!

Elizabeth said...

I don't watch DWTS, but I love the costumes! Thanks for the info on who is out and what you think; now I can hold a semi-intelligent conversation when others are talking about the show!

I love the PINK costumes!!!

Happy PINKness day!

Shelia said...

Morning sweet smiling one!! Oh, what beautiful Pinkness you're showing today. I love all those gorgeous costumes. And I have to tell you something...it is such a conincidence...my figure looks just like those gorgeous gals in their pink outfits...I'm just covered in my little pink fluffy flesh!! My pretty figure is under all of my fluff!! lol
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Alex said...

Hi Sally, I loved your post today! :) Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Sally.

I love to watch dancing, and all of those costumes are just gorgeous.

Ms.Scartastic said...

I'm not a big fan of reality shows, but I think it's great that you watch the show with your friend. My best friend lives 6 hours away and sometimes it is difficult to find time to share together. But this gives me hope. =)

jeanne said...

Sally, I LOVE your pink post today. I don't know how you managed to get everyone in Pink and remember all the names. I NEVER miss this show. My friend Beverly refuses to watch this show and I can't imagine why. I sooo believe Brook will win this time. Cheryl is one of my favorites too. I almost always pick the winner each year. I picked Emmett over Mario because he had a huge fan base and was also amazing when he danced. Besides we watched Emmett play football for the Gators. Oh boy, I will never get through the pink list today if I don't stop writing. Looks like you grabbed me this PS.

Hugs...Jeanne

jeanne said...

Sally, I had to come back because I just saw Beverly's comment. She is busted!!!lol.

If she sees my comment I will be busted. I told the truth. I don't think I have to worry, she is trying to respond to 110+ Pinkies today. I can't stop laughing. By the way I am feeling better, thank God. Now we have to see if my knee will be OK. Thanks again for your prayers and for understanding what this all means.

Hugs again...Jeanne

Bridget said...

Sally, This was a great idea for Pink Saturday! I'm a faithful DWTSs fan.

Connie said...

Smooches,
Connie

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

they really do wear a lot of pink, don't they? I'm not a "watcher" of the show, but my hubby loves it. I think it's just the gals he likes to watch, LOL! J/K. He actually likes to dance and what not, so he truly does enjoy the show.

Dawn said...

I think the football player has it!
Happy Pink!

Jeanie said...

I love this show, too, and Cheryl is my favorite! What a great idea for a PS post!

Ed said...

Gosh, all those pink dancers - what lovely photos - Happy Pink saturday Sally xx

cc said...

These costumes are just too beautiful..I love them all.

Fleur de Bee said...

Thanks for the visit! I think Brooke Burke should win...she is amazing! Those costumes are AMAZING! I have had the pleasure of wearing some in my own ballet career....works of art! The artists do not get enough credit for making them that is for sure!

Very creative thinking for Pink Sat! I'll talk about costumes any give day!

xx Molly

ellen b said...

Wow Sally! these outfits are amazing and sure are pink :0)
Can you imagine wearing on of them? Maybe if I was 30 lbs. lighter ...

Sweetie said...

Such talent and beautiful costumes. What really amazes me is Cloris Leachman. At 82 she is a beautiful, amazing woman.

Needled Mom said...

And....pink looks so feminine on all of them. I haven't gotten into that show, but so many folks here watch it each week.

Vintage To Chic said...

this is one of my favorite shows also. Love the costumes,
Judy

Kathy said...

Pretty pink costumes!
Happy Pink Saturday...Kathy

imjacobsmom said...

I'm a not a viewer of the program, however, I like to hear about the results. I was hoping that Susan Lucci from All My Children would make it to the end. I was glad to hear that Kim K. was one of the first to go. I hope that's not to mean of me....Happy Pink Saturday, anyway! ~ Robyn

Charli and me said...

I love Dancing With The Stars! I give those women a lot of credit especially the older ones.
The costrumes they wear are all so beautiful.
Cheryl is my favorite too.

Raxx - A day in the life said...

Great Idea for pink saturday, Sally!

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Clif said...

I saw you comment on my wife's blog about posting on Spiritual Sundays. Let me try to "tempt" you again. Do it! As we read through all the serious, spiritual "stuff" we need a little humor. Post your church cartoon or joke. I think we all need a smile.

Dawn said...

I've never watched Dancing with the Stars. I do listen to the recap on the radio the next day. You are right. There is a lot of pink there!!

take care,
Dawn

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

My favorite show too. And I think Ted was voted off way too early also. Love all the pink here today.

Utah Grammie said...

I don't usually watch until nearer to the end which is really silly. I hope I can even move when I'm 82 - no less dance! Pretty costumes for sure.


Fun post!

Shabby Kim said...

Hi Sally,

Love your post for today. Even though I've never watched Dancing with the Stars, I loved seeing all the beauiful pink dresses that the dancers are wearing.

Hope you are having a great weekend. See you again for Blue Monday!!

stephanie (bad mom) said...

I've never watched this show but you've give such a sweet summary - I especially love Warren Sapp from his NFL days and should take a look at him dancing.

Thanks for visiting me :)

Jill said...

Oh man, I keep forgetting to watch! Durn it, I watched it all last season. I really enjoyed your updates on all of them, I really need to catch back up!

Have a good weekend!

Sara said...

I love pink Saturday, especially this month!

Jenny S said...

Great post!! Fun pink stuff!!

char72 said...

We love to watch Dancing with the Stars. What great pictures you posted of them. They do wear pink a lot. I hadn't thought about it. I agree with your assessment of their talents.

Pat said...

Hi Smiling Sal!


You have a lovely blog! Happy Pink Saturday. I enjoy danicing with the atars too and I think Brooke might win also.

Thanks for the chance to win a book!

nikkicrumpet said...

I LOVE that show! Warren amazes me with how graceful a big guy can be. I can't figure out why Len is so dang grumpy about Lacey and Lance (I'm a big Lacey fan from when she was on "so you think you can dance" my other favorite show)
And I think you're right...Brooke is the best dancer. And what is up with Susan Lucci's boobs...sheeesh she looks so strange!

Bobbi Jo said...

I just adore pink dresses and these are very pretty. Happy Pink Saturday! Hugs, Bobbi Jo-AZ

judicreations said...

What gorgeous dresses they wear, I would love to be in this jsut to wear the dresses lol. A fun post thankyou for sharing. Cheers Debra.

Nerissa said...

I love that dress that Cheryl is wearing in the first picture. But my faves this season are Brooke (she's such a natural) & Warren (I was a fan of his when he played with the Bucs - who knew!!)
Thanks for stopping by my blog this week & enjoy the rest of your weekend

Cori G. said...

Hello SS,
I wanted to watch this seasons dancing, but manage to miss it every week. If I knew they had such gorgeous pinl dresses I would have tried to remember.
Have a great pink weekend!

g said...

Love all the pink costumes.

And - hey - isn't Cloris Leachman GREAT???

sigh. I wish I could be like her!

Have a great pink Saturday! thanks for coming by my blog.

daisy said...

Mmm...thanks for the pretty pics. I love it all! My vote is between three of them, well, maybe four.

Here are my picks, in order: Brooke, Warren, Lance, and maybe Maurice.

But personally, I think Warren is my favorite this season. He's got personality plus!!

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Sally, I love DWTS. I cheat every week, since I live in Calif they show it live back east and then we see it 3 hours later. I go online and check to see who is going to get kicked off when it starts here. Its bugs my husband so much! LOL I love your pink posting of all the costumes. Great!
Love, Ann

Stephanie said...

Hey Sally girl! I don't watch this show much, but when I do tune in I'm in awe of some of these costumes and how they stay put with all that flopping around they do!

Justine :o )

Helen said...

dana said...

I LOVE DWTS, too!!! I love your recap of the dancers---I'm rooting for Maurice G. since he is from KC,KS and I live near by. I also love B. Burke and W. Sapp! I've watched it since it first aired---I actually enjoy So You Think You Can Dance a bit more because the kids are so amazing and young and unknown. Loved your post!!! Dana

sherri (Tied Up In Ribbons) said...

It is a fun show to watch, although I don't get to watch it often.

Happy belated Pink Saturday!

Kim's Cottage said...

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate you stopping by.

I thoroughly enjoyed your Pink Saturday. Such lovely shades of pink. But most magnificent of all are the gowns themselves. Even in still photos, the way they flare make them appear alive...like they could jump into motion at any moment. Very nice post. Thank you. :-)
