"Gal" Friday(s) just keep on "Dancing"

"Dancing With The Stars" is a guilty pleasure of mine!

Not so much for the has-been performers who appear there to shake a leg, or the plethora of sports figures (whose fan base keeps them alive from one week to the next, talented dancer or not).

No for me it's the delicious assortment of fetching female dancers who sadly get paired up all too often with real schmuck male stars who can barely walk and chew bubble gum at the same time, let alone swirl across the ballroom floor.

So here is a a big heads up to four of my faves: Karina Smirnoff (who really got cheated out of a well-earned win with partner Mario Lopez a couple of years ago). Emmett Smith of the NFL (who along with his partner, Cheryl Burke) beat them out, is one of those sports guys whose fans overly supported him beyond his actual dancing abilities. Cheryl winning back-to-back trophies was the only positive note on that sorry occasion.

Edyta Silwinska and another back-to-back trophy winner, Julianne Hough, round out my favorite dancing queens from the ABC series.
