Seriously folks, if Dancing with the Stars’ trophy had gone to Marie Osmond the underdog — or rather, underdoll, as I like to think of her after Monday’s bizarre freestyle nondance that would have been better suited for the Island of Misfit Toys — I might even have joined the legions of disgruntled fans who tend to declare "I’m never watching again" after each cycle when their favorite doesn’t win.And then, of course, they return the following season, because once hooked on this deliriously entertaining reality contest, few can resist the spectacle of watching B-list celebs put on their dancing shoes with varying degrees of nerve, style and success.

Cuban's even willing to trade a few blows himself, with nemesis Donald Trump. "Donald always picks on people, and a lot of them aren't in a position to stand up to him," Cuban notes. "When I stand up to him, I am standing up for all the people who are afraid to. He's all show and no go." — Ben Katner read more
