Is taking a few extra dance classes before a dancing competition cheating?
Rumors have been circulating that the chat show host/celebrity dancer Sherri Shepherd was seen working on her moves in December, proir to the start of DWTS.
Sherri denies that she cheated, stating:
“I’m glad I did, because it showed me if I was up for this challenge … I’m 169 pounds, I’m diabetic and I’m pigeon-toed. Y’all do not want me falling out on that dance floor."
A show insider agrees with Sherri’s sentiment:
"I don't think it’s cheating…It would be stupid to not check out a few dance classes before you sign up to a grueling dance competition. If you don’t like to dance in the first place, then why would you want to be on 'Dancing With the Stars'?"
The show has also cut down the training period allotted to the celebs from 6 weeks to 3 weeks, so it's only reasonable for them to prepare themselves, right?
Well, whatever Sherri did, it seemed to work, as her performance was spectacular last night!
What do U think about the pre-show dancing instruction?? Would U call it cheating?
