Clapping for an Empty Stage?
Access Hollywood reports that even though we're told Dancing with the Stars is completely live, it isn't. The dances are pre-taped and the audience is forced to clap for an empty stage. Seriously, this shit is weird. Hosts, Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris are forced to deliver their introduction for each dancer and then throw it to an empty stage. The audience is then shot giving a standing ovation to a dance they haven't seen. This apparently has only happened the last couple of weeks.
Also when interviewed after their dances, the celebrities are told to look like they just come offstage when they've really been in the back room the entire time.
The video above is Vivica Fox doing her best mannequin impression while waddling through the tango. She's my favorite, because ho is keeping it real at 40 or whatever the hell she says all the time.
