My only lowlight of Week 2 was Chris and Witney, who performed a half-hearted, too casual cha-cha-cha. He messed up some of the steps and looked awkward. Len delicately said he “got into a bit of a pickle” but he may be heading home next week unless his fan base can come through for him. Next week is Latin Week so we’ll see how everyone adjusts. It ought to be interesting. I can only hope that Patti LaBelle, who suffered a knee injury in rehearsal but who gutted it out to perform a hot cha-cha-cha, can hang in there. Her positive attitude just lights up the ballroom. See you next week — keep dancing.
SAN JOSE — Reclining casually in a loveseat at The Hub — Santa Clara County’s drop-in center for foster youth — Tony Mora, 23, talks of growing up hostile, with little to care about and something to prove, He was in and out of juvenile ballet flats that fold up hall and jail despite a caring foster home and, in a tale that’s common to many of the hundreds served at the “by us, for us” one-stop services shop, it was The Hub that turned his life around, And, like his cohorts at the home-away-from-home, Mora’s elated about the news that the county is upgrading their digs, with supervisors unanimously approving the purchase of a permanent center on Parkmoor Avenue near San Jose City College..

But “Wheel” has long played up the absurdity of Vanna’s role. Indeed, it playfully mocks her silence at live tapings, where Sajak often teases her for not having (or really needing) a microphone. “Oh, you don’t have a mike?” He asks. “Go ahead and talk into my chest, and take all the time you need!”. Vanna obliges, the audience laughs, and their banter continues. She calls him “boss,” He calls her “one hot babe.”. Vanna chalks all this up to the absurdity of her job.
