Of course, I assume many male Dancing With The Stars viewers this season like it...a LOT.
I mean, this here's a woman who probably looked like a flaming hottie when she was wearing a flaming-orange prison jumpsuit during her one year and one day of incarceration. So it was inevitable that she was going to look off-the-charts, over-the-top sexy once her famously curvy physique was barely covered up by the dental-floss-flimsy costumes that the lovely ladies of DWTS tend to wear onstage.
But this week when Lil' Kim and her DWTS partner Derek Hough executed a routine in a far less traditionally sexy dance genre, the waltz, judge Bruno Tonioli wasn't all that turned on. (Surprise! I wonder why?) In fact, Bruno told Kim: "You try to be a lady, but you're more comfortable being a tramp."
Wow. Here was an episode on which America's sweetheart, Melissa Rycroft, nearly suffered a Janet Jackson-style wardrobe malfunction--but it was Kim who came under attack for vulgarity. I know sometimes Kim really pushes the boundaries of taste, but on Monday night I think it was Bruno who went too far. His comment was nasty and uncalled-for.
And the video somewhat disconcertingly depicts goody-goody golden boy Derek working up a thirst while surfing for racy Kim pics on the Web (and even more disconcertingly, it depicts a tween boy excitedly dancing around his own computer as he hits up Kim on her over-18 MySpace).
Oh well. Why should appearing on a family-friendly show like DWTS make Kim change her wicked, wild ways? She's a freakshow, baby baby, on the dance floor--and in her music videos as well. And that's just how I like her, no matter what Bruno says.
