Priscilla Presley thinks The Simpsons should be banned because "it's not good for kids." The 67-year-old actress is not a fan of the animated TV show, which sees Homer and his dysfunctional family get into numerous escapades, because she believes it's content does not promote good morals.
When asked what she would do if she was "Queen of Everything" in an interview with Stylist magazine, she said, "I'd have to ban The Simpsons. It's not good for people's moral compass. It's OK for adults as we can put it all together but it's not good for kids and I think we need to bring back something more family orientated like Leave It To Beaver that I used to watch when I was growing up."
Priscilla - who is playing the Wicked Queen in pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in London this month - is also worried about the decline of religion in Western society and is concerned about the amount of children being raised by divorced parents. The Naked Gun star believes kids with parents and step-parents are getting mixed moral messages: "We're in trouble. Churches are going, religious leaders are being attacked. I do think we need guidance because we're in trouble right now for not having any. It's the same with parents. When we're growing up it's our parents who we look to to give us guidance, the morals, the ethics, the standards. I find that because kids are being raised by multiple parents with the divorce rate as high as it is, everyone is thinking differently."
Yesterday on Dancing with the Stars: Season 6, the celebrities did their best to find the Latin in them. While it was another great night for Kristi Yamaguchi and Jason Taylor, sadly those two contestants were the only ones to get scores above 25. (Last week, four couples got above that figure.)
Last night’s styles proved to be quite difficult for several of the amateurs. The slow Rumba exposed some dancers’ faults (Priscilla, Cristian) while the fast Samba tested the abilities and/or timing of others (Shannon, Marlee). By night’s end, Miss Presley - a former contender for the title - had earned the lowest score (21) while Marissa was steadily improving her overall average (21.2).
Last week, most of the dancers were floating on air after their impressive turns at either the Paso Doble or the Viennese Waltz. By Tuesday, three of them had 10s, Marissa had confidence and Adam had a return ticket home.
Today, the celebrities of Dancing with the Stars: Season 6 welcomed Latin night with either the sizzling Samba or the romantic Rumba. Did someone finally reach the elusive 30…and was anyone able to make Carrie Ann cry again? Read on!
Last night on Dancing with the Stars: Season 6, we saw a large group of stars reach new personal highs with their dances. Although it wasn’t a surprise to see Kristi Yamaguchi come so close to a perfect score (she received the first two 10’s of the season), it was a bit of a shocker to see Jason Taylor surge past former leader Mario. (The football player also scored two 10’s.)
While they may not have been scoring 29’s, other celebrities made waves for themselves as well. Cristián de la Fuente‘s paso doble earned the actor his best marks ever (26), Shannon overcame partner issues to rack up her highest total (28) and Marissa dug herself out of a hole with a committed performance (24).
Last Monday, the Top Ten competitors did their best to impress with either the Tango or the Jive. By Tuesday, Adam had improved, Mario had stumbled and Steve was eliminated.
This week on Dancing with the Stars: Season 6, the celebrities were introduced to either the intense Paso Doble or the romantic Viennese Waltz. Did Kristi finally deviate from her boring three 9’s…and was Marissa simply boring? Read on!
Two down, ten to go. Last week on the Dancing with the Stars: Season 6, the celebrities were tasked with mastering either the Quickstep or the Mambo. Those results helped in eliminating magician Penn Jillette and tennis star Monica Seles the following day.
This week, the amateurs took on either the fiery Tango or the fast-paced Jive. Which performers eased into their dance like a fish to water and which ones simply got in over their heads? Read on!
The division of the sexes formally ended on tonight’s Dancing with the Stars: Season 6. All twelves couples gathered for their last chance to dazzle the viewers before Tuesday’s dreaded double-elimination.
Last week, Adam Carolla and Monica Seles scraped the bottom of the scoring barrel (15 points each) while Mario and Kristi Yamaguchi (24 and 27 points, respectively) made it known they were the ones to look out for. How did the celebrities fare with Monday’s dances? Did they do anything in their second outing to change their standing in the competition?
Tuesday night saw the second-half of the Dancing with the Stars: Season 6 debut.
Yesterday, the men got us warmed up with their interpretations of the cha-cha-cha and the foxtrot. Scores ranged from the low of 15 (Adam Carolla) to the high of 24 (Mario).
Were the women intimidated by Monday’s performances…or did they bring the competition to a whole new level? Read on!
Here are the dancers scheduled to hit the floor come Monday, March 17th:
- Adam Carolla (partner Julianne Hough): Radio personality (friend Jimmy Kimmel should have a ball with this one)
- Cristian de la Fuente (partner Cheryl Burke): Chilean telenovela star
