STEP OFF: Lest You Jive or Quickstep Well, You Probably Wont Survive

Has anyone noticed the cute, shameless plugging the contestants of DANCING WITH THE STARS partake in on Twitter? These guys are synergistic, cross-promoting, social media moguls!

Example 1: Kirstie Alley asked Kristin Chenoweth for a sympathy vote this weekend. Cheno was naturally happy to oblige. She's Broadway/the planet's resident "nice girl," after all.
Example 2: Joey Fatone, no longer of NSYNC fame, (because no one remembers he was ever really in NYSYNC) puts out his voting number multiple times a day.

I’m all for this. I mean, hey, when you’re given a choice between two things you probably can’t do (the jive or quickstep) and are forced to give it the ‘ol heave-ho on national television, there’s nothing wrong with trying to land as many votes as possible. Who cares what methods you use. Let us not forget, Mitt Romney purchased followers on Twitter! I mean, it doesn’t get much worse than that.

We’ll see if Alley’s Twitter pleas can keep her on stage for another week, but as Bruno so wonderfully said: “The girl works hard for her money...you placed it beautifully you raunchy momma.” Yeah, “raunchy momma.” Yikes. Feel those goose bumps?

For now, here’s a little by-the-numbers breakdown of tonight’s episode:

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani: Jive, 23.5/30
Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas: Quickstep, 18/30
