Mya may have been hurting last night on Dancing With the Stars, but she certainly wasn't showing it.
Not only did her steamy rumba with hunky Dmitry Chaplin land them on top with 27 points, but they received the season's first 10s from Carrie Anne and Bruno.
"My feet are really bad right now," Mya told me this morning during our exclusive weekly chat. "They look horrible. They feel like crap. I tape them up every day like athletes during rehearsal and wait until show day to take the tape off."
But it's nothing compared to what Tom DeLay is going through. Read on to find out what Mya has to say about the former congressman's two foot fractures, as well as grumpy judge Len Goodman and Bruno's Brokeback moment with Donny Osmond.
How does it feel getting those two 10s?
I was so not expecting that, because it was a slow dance. I was like, "We had the jive last week and we killed it [we got three 9s], so I don't know how we're going to live up to it." So [last night] I just went outside of myself…I guess I moved or tickled someone.
But then there's Len! Do you think he's grumpy just to be grumpy?
I don't think so, but I don't know what he wants. I feel like if we give Len what he wants we're not going to please the other judges. If we did a slow and simple routine we wouldn't have gotten 10s from Carrie Ann and Bruno.
How on earth is Tom DeLay still competing?
I feel for him. I've had a stress fracture in one foot and I could not even walk. They put me on crutches—and he's dancing on two! That's commendable. I really respect him for trying to stay in the competition with two fractured feet. I don't know how he's even walking.
Do you think he's getting sympathy votes?
I actually think he's doing a good job. His choreography was clean. Maybe it wasn't technically correct, but I really enjoy watching him more than some others because he's having a good time. That's what it's all about.
Now, let's talk about Donny Osmond and Bruno.
I didn't know what the heck was going on. We can see it on the monitors backstage, but we can't hear much audio. We were all in shock. We were like, What is going on?...But then we were all talking and realized you know what it is, it's the full moon! That explains it.
I tweeted that Donny made the show even gayer than it already is.
That's not a bad thing, is it? [Laughs.] It was hilarious when he said, "I don't know if they're going to let me back in Utah."
Now, we just have to get Tom DeLay on top of the judges' desk with Bruno.
I do not want to see that.
Last night wasn't fun for everybody. Just ask David Letterman.
