Tennis great Martina Navratilova did more than double fault during her stiff “jive on a diet,” as her dance partner dubbed it.
Navratilova had the right attitude but the wrong moves on Monday’s “Dancing With the Stars,” where her jive and last week’s foxtrot got her 37 points out of 60 from the judges.
Depending on how viewers vote, it might be Melissa Gilbert who’s dancing with herself after an uninspired quickstep to Billy Idol. The actress has 40 points headed into Tuesday’s results show, when the first of this season’s stars will fall.
Classical singer Katherine Jenkins is sitting pretty at the top of the scoreboard with a 52. Jenkins’ jive had her doing a “Welsh wiggle” that won over the judges, but the crowd favorite remains Cuban hottie William Levy.
The Latin telenovela heartthrob worked the ballroom into a frenzy with his quickstep, bringing his total to 49.
The judges were unduly harsh on soap star Jack Wagner but let Sherri Shepherd slide even though she missed a step.
