Tears Flow in Dancing With The Stars Biggest Opening Episode
The premiere of the latest season of Dancing with the Stars proved to be a little emotional as a former teen show star cried onstage while a popular reality celebrity blanked out.
Shannen Doherty, star of popular shows Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed cried onstage after performing when she saw her father who is recovering from a stroke.
Niecy Nash also cried as she took vengeance for being kicked out of her eighth-grade dance class. “I was dancing for every person who’s ever had a dream deferred,” she exclaimed.
Meanwhile, Kate Gosselin, blanked out stating that she don’t know what to do next. Gosselin, despite her stint in Jon & Kate plus Eight, was probably not yet ready for a live audience. She however scored third lowest. Ending at the bottom are Aiden Turner and astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
Turner was eliminated.
The premiere registered its highest opening audience ever, which is at 24 million. Other celebrities in the show that probably helped drew that number are Pamela Anderson, Erin Andrews, Nicole Scherzinger, Evan Lysacek, Chad Ochocinco and Bachelor star Jake Pavelka.
The show is hosted by Tom Bergeron and season 7 champion Brooke Burke who replaced Samantha Harris.
