Two Left Feet, But Dancing Anyway!

Recently, I mentioned that I will be guest blogging at Access Hollywood during Dancing with the Stars!

Well, here’s my first one:

When I first did “Dancing with the Stars” as a teenager, I was shy, nervous, and had two left feet. Now, I’m shy, nervous, have two left feet… but am two years older!

Many people ask me the same question: Why am I coming back to the show? I know it’s a rare privilege to be on show like this. But everyone has experienced falling short of the goal you set for yourself. So when I had a chance to see if I could come back to the same show and improve – not even necessarily to win, but to perform better and to give it my all – well, I had to take it. I just want to show people that it’s possible to get back up and dance!

Read it all here.

    Bristol, it’s a thrill to see you and Mark Ballas, back on the dance floor! I’ll watch as much of the show as I can; work schedule willing. May I say, Bristol, that you look absolutely fabulous; obviously, good looks run in the family! I’ll be rooting for you, and Mark. You’ve got my vote; on, or off, ‘Dancing With The Stars’. Your’e a great mom, and a great American. Tell Mark, I think he’s a swell guy; and a very lucky guy, at that! Well wishes to both of you; knock ‘em dead!

    Bristol, it was a lot of fun watching you and seeing your family having a great time too. I look forward to your next dance. I already figured out the song you gave the hint to in your interview! LOL. I didn’t know you loved that song so much. I know your mom does!:)
    Just know that there are a lot of people that support you and sometimes they are just too shy to say anything.

    I love your left legs.

    I am so proud of you. You have stood strong and didn’t let the small things, that I know seemed big at the time , bother you to the point of discourgement. You have done so well and I know God will bless you. I think your mother is wonderful, as well as all your family. I know you must be very proud.
    Good luck dancing
    And may God bless you in all you do,
    Betty Atchley

    Great job making it thru ‘hell week’ of DWTS All Stars! I hope the judges were playing with you a bit putting you bottom 3 when you weren’t a bottom 2 vote getter. Did that mean you WEREN’T bottom 3 vote getting? I’m guessing it was bait to keep the Palin haters tuned in! Everybody dances so well it’s tough to see anyone go.

    Poor Pam! One stumble and such a fit, talented, gorgeous and popular star is GONE! Would have liked to see her dance again.

    You have REALLY grown into a beautiful young woman, Bristol. During ‘Life’s a Tripp’ there were a couple moments you reminded me of actress Claire Forlani (circa ‘Meet Joe Black’) and your DWTS appearance has solidified the comparison. You share many of her her soft, elegant, naturally beautiful features.

    BTW – Sometime after DWTS I think you should consider a re-focusing of your goals (surely you have advisers suggesting this?).

    You simply are not the person you were two years ago. You have matured immensely. I don’t think there is a template for your possible impact so only you can decide the path best for you. IMO – find a way top bridge your current activism with a larger goal for yourself and those you hope to represent.

      What current activism would that be CapitalG? What abstinence only work Bristol did came with a high price tag for whatever charity she was working for. She was merely cashing in jn her celebrity. Oh and FYI, real celebrities doing similar work do not look for payment.

    It would be best for each and everyone of us to work at self improvement, keep on rolling Bristol!
