Florence Henderson Flashes Audience on 'Dancing With the Stars'
By PopEater Staff Posted Sep 21st 2010 07:00AM
The Season 11 premiere of 'Dancing With the Stars' was a situation, all right. Florence Henderson took a page from Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's playbook during Monday's premiere, lifting her shirt to reveal a white bra (and matching abs) to viewers during a taped segment on the show. "Mama Brady flashed her boobies on our show tonight!" judge Carrie Ann Inaba said after the two-hour premiere.
"So, what do you give me?" Henderson, 76, asked the judge.
Judges didn't hand out any perfect 10s during Monday's show, but they did give three 8s to 'Dirty Dancing' star Jennifer Grey, making her the night's top scorer with 24 points out of 30. The actress and her professional partner, Derek Hough, performed a Viennese waltz to a song featured in 'Dirty Dancing' that moved Inaba to tears.
The pair was pleased with their performance, but Hough said scores weren't on their minds. "Tonight we don't think about scores, first or front-runner," he said. "Tonight was just special. We got to dance to a song that is so iconic."
There was another tie at the bottom of the judges' leaderboard: Comedian Margaret Cho, reality star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and actor-singer David Hasselhoff all landed in last place with 15 points each.
Sorrentino had only five days to practice the cha-cha with professional partner Karina Smirnoff, and judges said the performance lacked polish. Tonioli said he saw in the dance "a very, very faint thing that may or may not be talent." But head judge Len Goodman told the famously muscular 'Jersey Shore' star: "You've got the guns, but not the ammunition."
Sarah Palin wasn't on hand to cheer for daughter Bristol, who danced a cha-cha to Three Dog Night's 'Mama Told Me (Not To Come).' But the former vice-presidential candidate did give her some advice before the show, Palin said: "She just told me to be confident, smile and have fun."
Here's how the leaderboard stacked up:
Jennifer & Derek: 24
Brandy & Maks: 23
Kyle & Lacey: 23
Rick & Cheryl: 22
Audrina & Tony: 19
Kurt & Anna: 19
Bristol & Mark: 18
Florence & Corky: 18
Michael & Chelsie: 16
David & Kym: 15
Margaret & Louis: 15
The Situation & Karina: 15
