Previously I was never interested in nor did I watch Dancing with the Stars but when I heard this season would have Kate Gosselin and the Bachelor I thought I would watch the first show to see how Kate did, and maybe to see if there was chemistry between Jake and his partner Chelsea. (I wanted Jake to pick Ali not Vienna.) Anyway…I watched the first hour and couldn’t take anymore; I figured I switch the television back and forth to try to catch Kate. If it was purely dancing I wouldn’t have a problem but all the other stuff, I got bored. Ended up missing Kate dance but did see a highlight and she didn’t look to good.

The following night my husband, son and I were all at the dinner table and my husband asked me if I watched the show and who were the other participants. Without ever missing a beat my little boy looked up from his plate, said “Melmo,” looked back down and continued eating his dinner. My husband for a minute looked at our son, then at me, with the thought, “Is Elmo really on Dancing with the Stars.” The facial expressions of my son and husband were hilarious, the fact that the little boy never missed a beat, my husband at first believed him…well needless to say I laughed hysterically for about 15 minutes. It was so darn funny. Everything right now is “Melmo,” he’s on television, if he pretends to talk on the phone, he’s talking to “Melmo.” Oh my! Too cute!
