Well, I always feel left out because I don't have television and teach while it is on. So I "listen" to the East Coast commentary, then I "listen" to the West Coast commentary, then the next day, I get my videotaped copy from a friend and see the "taped taped live show" for myself. Hmph!
It would be interesting to compare the commentary...but how many times did some of us post the *exact* same comment at the same time last year? I think I remember one time when there were 3 of us saying the same thing and posting it at once.
Cheryl hasn't put on pounds. It's the angle of that shot. I've been following her public career since DWTs II and there are nearly weekly photos of her on wireimage.com and filmmagic.com at different red carpet events. At the Paris Hilton cd launch, she looks slender. A couple days later in a different outfit, she looks less slender. Then slender again.
In one of the events a week after DWTs II she looks huge. She's at a fashion event in jeans and a flowery halter, and it looks like her hips are 44" wide. But she hadn't gained weight from DWTS II - it was the shot. On the DWTs costume designer's site there are a lot of her DWTs costumes, and during all of season II her hip size was 38" and her waist was 25". Cheryl can always look bodacious in the wrong outfit or angle because of her healthy thighs and booty. She's muscular, not narrow like some of the other dancers.
Look at the photo of her "Myspace" page which many of the DWTS have. It's a different pr shot w/Emmitt.
