    Everyone is wanting to throw Bristol under the bus for Dancing with the stars. Which I agree 100% Brandy is a much better dancer, however her partner Max is a jerk. I stopped voting for Brandy because of Max. The week he jumped Carry-Ann, their votes were down, but they made it through. He came on that week and made smart remarks again. His " I am going back to being cool" lasted how long. I feel like the people have watched him semi abuse Brandy in the beginning, which the judges made comments on. He cleaned up his act somewhat over the next few weeks. But then to verbally attack a judge for doing her job!! Enough was enough!! I feel very bad for Brandy because she should have won this show, but people are sick of Max and the way he treats people.

    It's very easy to understand why Bristol is still on DWTS, Sarah Palin. First of all, Bristol is NOT a star, she can't dance, to be young; she's as stiff as a board. Because she's had a baby does not qualify her as a star if that's the case what about the other teenage mothers. On last Monday evening while trying to vote, the recorder kept coming on saying "your call didn't go through, please try your call again" then it said, "you have made your quota of calls from this number" and that was from my home number. Then I tried my cell phone and the same thing happened, I have a problem with this because no where did it say that you only had a certain amount of calls to make. Problem, without doubt there's a problem. Who has an answer for that? As I stated previously, if this girl wins or even in second place, this is the end for me as a fan of DWTS because there has been too many so call, incidents. Bye...

    Bristol has no dancing skill and it is a little hard to believe she wasn't voted off the show. She can't shake her body and keep time with the music. She also dance stiff without an expression on her face. She has no talent as a dancer. The only vote she has is from the tea party because no one would waste their time voting for a non dancer.

    Thank you for addressing the issue of honest in Dancing with the Stars. We are the naive audience who expect the judges, and the American public, to be honest about the subject ... DANCE, and not politics. The joy of watching the show is the accomplishments (in dancing) that the people show... it's fun and inspirational. But the Bristol and Brandy controversy was shocking... yes, Bristol has made and effort and has improved, but please... she is NOT a dancer, and Brandy is! So what is the voting all about?

    As for the judge who attacked Brandy's instruc tor, I think she was way out of line directly pointing the blame to him ... who is a wonderful dancer and instructor. He is only human, and being humiliated like that on public television is crossing a boundry. As a teac her (retired, ) we never huminated out students in front of the class!!!
