The cameras on Monday night’s airing of Dancing With The Stars weren’t just focused on the twinkle toes of the celebrity dancers, but also on the star studded crowd. Along with Eliza Dushku, Vera Wang, Nicey Nash, Evan Lysacek and other past contestants and dance pros who else was there? Jamie Lee Curtis. And the camera, they loved her. Jamie Lee was front and center, all smiles and grins, watching the celebs attempts at dancing greatness. But why was she there?
Jamie Lee Curtis was asked by the producers to be on the show but she said no to the invite. “They’ve knocked,” Jamie Lee said. “No one was home. I just don’t have the family time for that amount of work. The busy actress, writer, and Activa spokeswoman has two kids and a hubby (Christopher Guest) at home and the Dancing with the Stars rehearsal schedule is very time consuming.
She also has a big movie coming out, a new Walt Disney produced film called You Again and since ABC and Disney are in cahoots she gets those “I’m about to have a movie hit” front row seats.
And Jamie Lee, she has no qualms about making her allegiances known. Not only she did wildly clap when Jennifer Grey’s turn came up, she also confessed to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show of who she would be rooting for. While on the couch with “The Situation” she said “I am the cheerleading captain of Team Jennifer Grey,” she said. “She is going to rock your world.” It looks like she was right on both counts!
