Dancing With The Stars Scandal: Is Dance Class Cheating??

Is taking a few extra dance classes before a dancing competition cheating?

Hmm.

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?

    Nope. It's a pretty great thing to take some dance and see if you can cut it at all, or even want to instead of making an arse of yourself on national television.

    It's not like she's a professional or taking dance for a year before to prepare. (I'm glaring at you, you future DWTS contestants!)

    169lbs? is she sure about that….

    169? Who is she trying to kid?



  4. 4

    How is that cheating? They recruit olympic athletes to be on this show for fucks sake.



  5. 5

    I think each boob has got to be 80 lbs, so how could she weigh 169?

    I PERSONALLY CANNOT STAND THIS WOMAN. NO WAY IS SHE 169 POUNDS. I AM NOT IMPRESSED WITH HER ON THE VIEW AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I AM EVEN COMMENTING ON SOMETHING SO MINDLESS. BUT DO NOT GIVE ME SHE IS 169 POUNDS

    Her smile and persona is like nails down a chalk board. SORRY to all your fans!!!

    It's not cheating, people will just complain about anything. To the people taking issue with her weight, look at her, she's short when she's not in heels and she's tiny from the waist down. She carries all her weight in the chest, it's why she walks like she's gonna fall over.

    She was still horribly bad so she should probably KEEP taking classes.

    oink, oink…

    No most of pass contenders are dancers, anyway this is so 2 weeks ago news. You now just copy tv news days later. No fresh stuff anymore perez.

    I don't think it is cheating! They have actually had professional dancers on the show, so if that isn't cheating this isn't either. I would think more people would want to do this so they don't show up and look like a fool not knowing anything.
    However, I seriously doubt she is 169.



  15. 15

    It's defintely cheating. How many of the other stars had that privilege? NONE.
    She needs to withdraw now…………………..I hope we can all get behind this movement. It's just not fair to the other contestants.

    Someone made a comment they've had professional dancers on the show. Who are they, with the exception of the regulars. I've watched every show, and I've never seen any professional dancers. 'Shepherd thinks she's professional.

    It's fine, imo. It's Sherri Shepard for heaven's sakes, not some olympic athlete.
