Pittsburgh Steelers MVP & DWTS Champ Hines Ward Busted for DUI

9 Jul

He’s a talented athlete who is known for his gregarious smile and his effortless charm. However, today, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Hines Ward has nothing to smile about.

Earlier in the year, he was handcuffed for a “misunderstanding” in Los Angeles while filming Dancing with the Stars (which he subsequently went on to win.)

But this time, the handcuffs were no mistake. Hines Ward was arrested early this morning in Georgia on DUI charges.

The Steelers receiver and Super Bowl MVP has been largely known as one of the most well-respected players in the NFL, but this drunk-driving charge may tarnish that image.

Ward was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia, and held on $1,000 bond, posting shortly after the arrest and being thereafter released.

Gossip site TMZ was among the first to break the news. Ward grew up in Georgia and went to school there. Some sports pundits are speculating whether or not the NFL Lockout is giving players too much free time.

Ward is expected to release a statement this afternoon.

The mugshot photo is below. This incident unfortunately comes on the heels of a popular tabloid magazine (on stands now) boasting “Who’s Gay, Who’s Not” with Ward featured as one of the celebrities on the cover. This just isn’t his week.

Dancing with the Stars – DWTS >> Weekly Thoughts

30 Mar

I have to say, Kate Gosselin is a horrible dancer. I almost feel bad. I felt awkward watching her last night during her 2nd dance in the 10th season of, “Dancing with the Stars.” She looks much how I would probably look if I went on Dancing with the Stars, and, if it weren’t for a bum knee, I might even be better than her. At least I HAVE some dance experience, and, most importantly, I know how to listen to people when they are trying to help me. I also know how to smile instead of looking terrified, miserable, and uncomfortable the whole time!

I would feel bad for Gosselin if she were more willing to learn. She was trying to teach her teacher how to teach – who DOES that?

I understand that everyone learns differently, but when you’re on Dancing with the Stars, my suggestion would be to listen to your pro.

That being said, Kate IS at a disadvantage, as they’ve pointed out many times. She is NOT an entertainer, she is NOT an athlete. Most of the other people are one or the other, and what they lack in dancing talent they can make up for with stage presence and charisma, or, other phsyical stunts. Kate is what she is, and what you see is what you get.

While she’s a trainwreck, I’m rooting for her more than Nicole Scherzinger. I DO realize that out of the entire bunch, Nicole Scherzinger, of Pussycat Dolls fame, is undeniably the most talented. However, I feel like Scherzinger (who I’ve met – see right – and who is very nice, though treading on diva-ish) is too experienced, and overqualified for the competition. Isn’t the point of it to watch non-dancers progress and learn how to dance? This is why, even though she is horrible and still isn’t my favorite contestant, a part of me is pulling for Gosselin. I can’t even say that I really like her, but, I do want to watch her learn and improve (or, fail miserably.)

Kate needs to get a lot of votes from the public to stay in the competition with her low scores. (Same goes for Buzz Aldren.)

I love Niecy Nash and I think Ochocinco is hilarious and charming on the show. Shannen Doherty surprised me, and I could care less about the figure skater or soap star. (Who ARE they, anyway? LOL)

Who I’m actually pulling for personally, are Pam Anderson, and Erin Andrews, Pam being my slight favorite. Both definitely have the charisma and the spark, the look and the personality, the determination, and, I think, the potential. Of course, they’re nowhere near as good as someone like Nicole Scherzinger, but, I’ve made up my mind that these two who I’m rooting for, and so I wish Pam and Erin the best of luck!

So here, check out the LINK to the slideshow for now. If it doesn’t work – PLEASE let me know!
