    I thought Tavis was a serious guy, i never thought of him doing something like this. Lolo Jones is an idiot don’t expect much from her. Alphonso Ribeiro will do the “Carlton dance”. LOL!

  2. I can’t wait to see Tavis’ moves. This should be interesting. Never thought of him having rhythm. Hope he doesn’t turn out to be a Wendy Williams. Love Wendy…..but she was horrible on Dancin !! Good Luck Tavis !!

  3. seriously on said:

    Will not watch DWTS this season or perhaps again….Do not like Julianne Hough, Sadie racist Robertson, Nascar driver or Tavis Smiley..More like dancing with losers. No thanks
