It’s the premiere of Dancing with the Stars!!

The day we’ve all been waiting for! Well, at least I have! It has been awhile since I’ve been so excited for the start of a DWTS. I love the cast – especially Jaleel White (as already noted!) and Maria Menunous.

8:03pm – And kicking off Season 14 of DWTS is Maria! I loved the montage – her laugh is hilarious!

8:06pm – She’s actually pretty good! Hooray!

8:08pm – And Bruno declares her delicious! I see 3 sevens coming.

8:10pm – Bingo!

8:14pm – Jack Wagner… as Becky says “So far, I’m not a fan.” He comes off as kinda an arrogant jerk. And looks a bit like David Bowie.

8:18pm – So, he’s doing ok. They always give the old guys the ballroom dances to start with instead of the latins. Makes sense, but would love to see him suffer! And, on a side note, I so want Anna’s dress!

8:19pm – Carrie Ann must have a soap fan – she’s doing her happy dance. Me…. meh. He’s ok, but not that great. Becky is predicting 7s and an 8 from Carrie Ann.

8:24pm – That’s crap! 2 8’s? No way!

8:25pm – Donald Driver and Peeta what?? Megatron? That’s it. She’s Peeta Megatron.

8:28pm – Becky: “I think she’s Australian” Lisa: “No, I’m pretty sure she’s decepticon” David (Becky’s hubby): “What does she turn into?”

My dream has finally come true! DWTS Season 14 Cast Announcement

Since Season One back in 2005, my dear friend Becky and I have watched Dancing with the Stars religiously. Every year, as we wait for the new cast announcements, the conversation always turns to “Who would be in your dream cast?” And my answer, since day one, has always been Urkel. And today, my dream has come true:

STEVE URKEL IS ON THE CAST OF DANCING WITH THE STARS SEASON 14!!!

I am seriously so freakin excited, you can’t even believe! Ok, fine, so it’s really Jaleel White, who played Steve Urkel (and in later seasons, when his muscles wouldn’t stop growing, Stefan Urquelle). I was so hopeful last year when I saw him starring (and dancing!) in Cee Lo Green’s video for “Cry Baby.” I love him! All I can hope for is that he doesn’t turn out to be a complete douche-canoe!

As for the rest of the cast… not bad! For the first time since Season 9 (with Donny Osmond), I’m actually really excited about this cast! Here are the rest of the stars, in order of how excited I am to have them on the show!
