The Gayest “Dancing With the Stars” Yet

Selene Luna and I got all dressed up and went to the premiere of Dancing with the Stars last night to watch the gayest season yet. You have the incredible Carson Kressley, the adorable Chaz Bono and the beautiful Ricki Lake all competing and I really think it is going to be a disco bloodbath. It’s fag-on-trans-on-fag-hag-violence. There is so much GLBT happening I can’t Read More

Finale Night

It’s done!!! Dancing with the Stars season 11 has wrapped and I am so proud to have been a part of it. Yesterday was a very long day with the extensive and exhausting rehearsal of the opening number, in which I made a microscopic mistake; I am not sure anyone noticed except Louis – but he was kind enough not to mention. There was so Read More

Getting into My Body

One thing I learned about myself on “Dancing with the Stars” is how startlingly insecure I am about my body. I am thin enough, I suppose, but I know I am not as healthy as I can be. I felt clumsy and awkward among the svelte, swanlike figures of Jennifer and Brandi and Audrina – I am not Read More

Thank You for the Dance!

So it’s almost over! Today we go to NYC to dance on The View tomorrow. I had such a great time on Dancing with the Stars and I thank everyone for voting for us. It means a lot.

It’s going to be weird not to dance, but I want to keep up my physical fitness. Read More

The Samba

I am proud of our performance on Dancing with the Stars. We danced our collective ass off, represented the community with a fabulous rainbow flag and got a really important message of pride and self esteem across in a very exuberant way. Watching the show back, I actually didn’t notice he mistakes that I made! Perhaps I had learned it wrong to begin with! That Read More

Our Story

This week we are telling a story with our dance. Our storyline is my story. When I did TV the first time, what seems like so many years ago, I was told I was too overweight to play myself – I became so sick with anorexia, I almost died. This story is about how I overcame feeling self doubt, and became beautiful to myself. This Read More

The Jive

We danced so hard last night. My feet are pounding. I can feel my heart beat in them. The satin dance shoes are too narrow for me, so the bands cut into my toes. There are huge blisters. Still, they are getting calloused over, because I am not giving up. I am dancing through.

I loved the jive, and our song “Dreaming” by Blondie is Read More

Rehearsing on Tour

I am so exhausted its been hard to write. We have been driving on the bus all night and rehearsing all day – stopping to do shows on The Cho Dependent Tour – it’s incredible. I love the physical benefits – all these weird little aches and pains have been disappearing, because I am moving for the first time. The body is supposed Read More

It Feels Right

Home now eating delicious sweets from friends and enjoying an early night. I am so grateful for everyone who voted for us and kept us on the show. Yesterday was a really rough day. I wasn’t sure what to feel or think. I want to stay in the game so badly, so much that I can barely think straight. I know I can dance. I Read More

Don’t Worry!

There’s kind of a gassy farty fear smell in the air, or maybe that is just me. I am in my trailer hoping for internet so I can watch Jennifer Grey’s performance again. She was so stunningly beautiful! She can really move and was a joy to watch. And the nicest person! Serious contender for miss congeniality. She came over to me in the makeup Read More
