Forget hunting season! Sarah Palin may want to think about bumpin' and grindin' over to Dancing With the Stars.
At least that's what Lance Bass' professional dancing partner, Lacey Schwimmer, thinks. "I'd love to see Sarah Palin go out there and shake her thang," Schwimmer said last night at the Shaun White Snowboarding video game event in L.A. "She'd be great at it. Put on little cha-cha heels, and she'd be ready to go."
On a completely different note, we're happy to report that Schwimmer's dance with the DWTS curse is healing and she won't have to go under the knife.
Shortly after fellow dancer Julianne Hough announced she suffers from endometriosis and would undergo surgery to have her appendix removed, Schwimmer revealed she also has the same condition.
"I don't need surgery," Schwimmer said, adding, "Everything's under control. I'm taking every precaution necessary. I'm going to be completely fine."
That's good to hear, because she and Bass are still in the game after last night's elimination round. Surprisingly, Schwimmer thinks the judging on DWTS isn't as harsh as it was on So You Think You Can Dance, which she appeared on before jumping over to the hit ABC series.
"Dancing With the Stars is all about the celebrity, so I just have to make sure Lance looks good," Schwimmer said. "I get to stand there and just dance alongside him."
