I know! Its cheesy but quite nice considering people usually get so mean on that board....good to see a positive thread and of course, seeing that Nick and even Lena get a kick out of it, well then that makes it even better. Everyone likes to be appreciated. Lol!

OMG! Anp, that thread is hilarious!! I especially like the decision that "manly chest" is ok to use for anyone, but "The Manly Chest" must only refer to Nick, too funny!
ETA: Got to where they talk about retreating from the rest of the board's ugliness to The Manly Chest where everything is beautiful. That's a fun bunch of women there!

However, I'm hearing that no one will be gone this week because of Sara's leaving.
Does that mean there won't be a results show on Weds? 'Cause what's the point in having a results show if you already know who's leaving (Sara)?

Oh, and hairy chests are teh suck.

From today's New York Times Arts section. Sorry I somehow cut off the last few sentences about hubby's nonexistent career. He lives off Sara, "manages" her career, ran unsuccessfully for a House seat in Oregon, has a GOP Political Action Committee. I have to miss the first half hour of the show, so I hope someone will bring me up to date on what she says. I still wonder when ABC knew and if they let her quit "on top" rather than being eliminated. Now I understand the entire state of Texas was told to vote for her, so she had Texas and Tenneessee. No way she could ever be voted off no matter what scores the judges gave her. Is that right? Could she have actually won? I mean people like Willa and Monique don't have any kind of fan base, Willa has (had) very little certainly.

Reality Intrudes on ABC’s Big Reality Hit

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 16 — “Dancing With the Stars,” the ABC hit that is the highest-rated reality show on television this fall, will go on without one of the six final couples this week. Sara Evans, a country music star, has dropped out after filing for divorce from her husband of 13 years.

Ms. Evans, named female vocalist of the year by the Academy of Country Music earlier this year, filed for divorce in state court in Tennessee on Thursday from her husband, Craig L. Schelske, a Republican fund-raiser.

Ms. Evans, 35, informed the show’s producers and ABC executives last week that she would drop out of the competition, Hope Hartman, an ABC spokeswoman, said Monday. Ms. Hartman said the network would not otherwise comment on the withdrawal’s effect on the show until after this week’s installments, which will be broadcast Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Tennessean newspaper quoted Ms. Evans’s lawyer, John Hollins Jr., on Saturday as saying that the singer would tape an interview with ABC about her withdrawal, to be broadcast during Tuesday’s show. Mr. Hollins did not respond to a telephone message yesterday.

In unusually explicit court papers, Ms. Evans accused her husband of adultery with the couple’s former nanny, excessive drinking, soliciting sex via an Internet site and maintaining a library of pornography that included pictures of him having sex with other women.

Mr. Schelske, 43, could not be reached for comment. In a statement issued through a spokesman, he said: “I adamantly deny the allegations that are being made. As distressing as it is to have to communicate about this matter publicly, Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year, and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed.”

According to court filings from Williamson County, Tenn., a state judge on Thursday approved a temporary restraining order and custody order based on the allegations in Ms. Evans’s divorce request.

The couple and their three children, who live near Nashville, had been residing in Beverly Hills, Calif., while Ms. Evans was participating in “Dancing With the Stars,” a ballroom-dance competition that is broadcast live Tuesday nights at 8 Eastern time on ABC. A results show, which combines viewer voting with the recommendations of a panel of professional dance judges, is shown live on Wednesdays, following the two-night format popularized by “American Idol,” last year’s top-rated television show.

According to Nielsen Media Research, “Dancing With the Stars” was the fourth-highest-rated show and the top-rated reality show in the first three weeks of the fall television season, drawing an average of 18.2 million viewers each week and trailing only “Grey’s Anatomy,” “CSI” and “Desperate Housewives.” The results show ranked seventh over all, with 16.1 million viewers.

In the 2005-6 television season, “Dancing With the Stars” ranked seventh over all, drawing an average of 18.5 million viewers each week. “American Idol” drew an average of 31 million viewers each week.

Although she was only one of the 11 celebrity contestants who began the season, each paired with a professional ballroom dancer for training and competition, Ms. Evans attracted more than the usual amount of attention. Tom DeLay, the former United States Congressman and Republican leader from Texas, recently sent out a mass e-mail message asking supporters to watch the show and vote for Ms. Evans, whom he called “a good friend of mine, country music singer and G.O.P. supporter.”

Saying that Ms. Evans “represents good American values in the media” and noting that one of her opponents in the competition was “ultra-liberal talk show host Jerry Springer,” Mr. DeLay added: “We need to send a message to Hollywood and the media that smut has no place on television by supporting good people like Sara Evans.”

Ms. Evans’s divorce filing says Mr. Schelske is unemployed, but he is listed online as the chairman of CraigPAC, a political action committee dedicated to electing Republicans in state and national races, whose name stands for Conservative Reform Agenda in Government. The committee’s Web site also says that Mr. Schelske is president of Gingerdog Inc., which promotes Ms. Evans’s singing career.

Mr. Schelske, who ran

i love it when loudmouthed conversatives are busted for doing the crap they rail against.
Absolutely!

I never understood his need to back Sara. I mean, its a show about dancing. Who cares if the person is a prostitute or a preacher so long as they can dance! And she cant, so it really makes him look stupid! Grrr....

Is it 8:00 yet? Lol!

Even more on Sara Evans and tonight's show

http://www.realityblurred.com/reali...with_the_stars_3/2006_Oct_17_evans_appearance

Sara Evans will explain her departure tonight in a seven-minute pre-taped message

Sara Evans will appear on tonight’s episode of Dancing with the Stars 3 to explain her departure, although it will be via a pre-taped, seven-minute message.

Her attorney told The Tennessean that Sara “did an interview explaining her reasons for withdrawing.” The paper adds that the segment “is expected to be about seven minutes long and will not go into detail about her divorce allegations but should contain general statements about her leaving the show. She is not expected to give any other interviews for a while.”


Meanwhile, a state judge on Thursday approved a temporary restraining order and custody order based on the allegations in Ms. Evans’s divorce request,” according to the New York Times. However, Sara’s husband denies her charges in a statement:
“I adamantly deny the allegations that are being made. As distressing as it is to have to communicate about this matter publicly, Sara has unfortunately become a dramatically different person over the last year, and it is something we have struggled to deal with. Sadly, it appears we have failed.”​
The Washington Post has new details from her divorce filings that involve Dancing with the Stars: Sara “says in the court papers, late last month he screamed at her that she could not let a costume designer for ‘Dancing With the Stars’ into their temporary L.A. home because the costume designer was a ‘sodomite.’ She also claims he told her one of their children broke out in hives upon seeing the costume designer.”

According to The New York Times, “The divorce filing says Mr. Schelske is unemployed, but he is listed online as the chairman of CraigPAC, a political action committee dedicated to electing Republicans in state and national races … [and] is also listed online as the executive director of American Destiny, a nonprofit organization that promotes the role of religion in the founding of the United States.”

I'll take having a "sodomite" in my home any day over a hypocritical bigot. Of course, all we know is what's in the news, so for all we know he could be a very nice guy. But if he's political fundraiser (for any party), I doubt it, hehe!

I agree. I am going to get everything done so that I can watch the show. It should be the highest rating show they've had just because of this whole ordeal. Inspiring minds will want to know!!! :D
