Dancing with the Stars: Nancy Grace Promises 'More Action'

This last week Dancing with the Stars took a serious turn as Elisabetta and Val were eliminated and sent home. We've all become good friends during the long hours we put in at the rehearsal hall. So, when a couple is forced to leave, it puts the whole competition in a new perspective. I saw Elisabetta's dancing skills really improve, and Val is a great dancer and instructor. I really miss them.

We took to the dance floor Monday night as the underdogs, the dark horse contenders. But once I heard "It Don't Mean a Thing," everything became a blur – and all I can remember is pounding out the beat with my dance steps and holding onto Tristan for dear life. The side-together, side-together, flick, run-run-run-run, kick, ball change, and then S-L-I-D-E into alternating jumping jacks was a challenge, but we did it! Then ... the judges! Len was "refreshed" by our dance together and gave us an 8! And, I'm taking their constructive criticism to heart and promise to give Carrie Ann and Bruno more action.

Our next dance is the waltz. It's a beautiful ballroom dance and requires me to strongly follow Tristan's lead. The song we chose has an extremely personal meaning for me.





The best part of it all is seeing the twins in the audience, cheering me on, every night. They may not really understand what mommy is doing, but I hope I make them proud one day when they do.

And P.S. Please Vote!
