You are right about the way you were treated on DWTS. The show talks celebrities, who cannot dance (although, some have knack for dance and do very well) into coming on the show and doing something they have never done before in front to millions of people. Then, to be humiliated the second week of the show, is not right. I thought it was interesting that Buzz Aldrin was treated with great respect, even though, he was one of the worst dancers. Some credit and encouragement should be given to those who are willing to put themselves out there. There is a tactful way to say anything.
I wonder how Bruno would do on American Idol?? Maybe, he wants to be the "Simon" for DWTS!
