Huh? All My Children's Rebecca Budig Nixed Joining Dancing With the Stars


All My Children
star Rebecca Budig chatted with Zap2It  about her upcoming turn on Skating With the Stars, and revealed she was offered a stint on the ABC uber-hit Dancing With the Stars — and turned it DOWN!
I don't feel any added pressure, Budig tells Zap2it about being one of the inaugural Skating stars. Maybe I will when Nov. 22 rolls around, but not right now. They came to me about Dancing With the Stars several times, but the timing was always wrong. Don't get me wrong, I love to dance, Budig adds, but I am passionate about ice skating. My sister and I skated together growing up, and we'd always watch it on TV. And she is so jealous of me right now.

The View's Joy Behar Blames Tea Party For Keeping Bristol Palin on Dancing With D-Listers

You gotta love how the ladies of The View go from Point A to Point Q without stopping for gas and/or reason. Whoopi Goldberg was fired up on Wednesday's show because Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson was booted off Dancing With The Stars, while Bristol "Monkey Suit" Palin made it through to the next episode (So was I, Whoop, so was I!).

Sherri Shepherd wondered if people, who may have thought it was nasty for Henderson to make out with her former TV son Barry Williams (ex-Greg Brady) during a segment, decided not to vote for her. Elizabeth Hasselbeck pointed to Palin's fanbase. Joy Behar basically co-signed Hasselbeck's theory, adding it was Tea Party members voting for Palin's rhythmless nation moves.

I don't no what to be more perplexed about, the thought of Palin having more fans than one of TV's favorite moms, or Joy and Elisabeth believing people will vote for political elections with the same forethought they do a televised dancing competition. Jesus take the Ballot Box. Watch a clip from the episode—which also featured guest host Patricia Heaton— after the jump! READ MORE

Should Kate Gosselin Have Been Booted Before Aiden Turner? He Thinks So!

Who does Aiden Turner (ex-Aidan Devane, All My Children) think should have been eliminated from Dancing With the Stars before he was? Reality star and tabloid cover queen Kate Gosselin. In an interview with TV Guide he wonders if showing more cleavage would helped him last longer.

"I was hoping [Kate] would go before me!" he laughs. "She's a sweetheart, but I'd rather her go out than me. 'Hey, go home! Get out!' She's a very popular girl. She's on the cover of all the magazines. She's got a lot of fans out there that are supporting her. At the same time, maybe I should've shown more cleavage. Maybe that's what I did wrong."
