DANCING WITH THE STARS:Season 21 kicked off tonight with hits, misses and… Gary Busey, need I say more. Well, I will anyway. Thirteen couples graced the dance floor tonight for the season premiere episode and from Paula Deen’s soiled pants reference to Gary Busey’s unintelligible lingo we saw a variety of the good, the bad and the talented. Sweet Bindi Irwin stole one of the highlights for her own as she kicked her way effortlessly through her debut dance the Jive. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her charm, impossible to resist. She and partner Derek Hough tied for first place with boy/man bander Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess. Also showing a lot of potential is army soldier turned hero Alek Skarlatos and his partner Lindsey Arnold along with Tamar Braxton and Val Chmerkovskiy. On the bottom of the dance board is REAL HOUSEWIFE Kim Zolciak and poor Tony Dovolani, who always gets gyped when the producers pair up the pros/celebs. There’s always next year Tony. Stay Tuned.
