Israel’s Lesbian Dancing With The Stars Lady Gives It Up For New York

While America figures out whether letting two members of the same sex dance together is ratings bait going to fly with viewers, Dancing With The Stars in Israel marches ahead with sportscaster Gili Shem Tov and partner Dorit Milman tearing it up for the second week.

They definitely appear more at ease with the choreography in their second attempt. Pamela Anderson certainly thought so.

    Personally, I loved their dance this week. It was actually romantic! And they seemed more at at ease with each other. I hope they stay on the show for a while, then maybe the American version will follow their lead instead of being a bunch of cowards. It would be nice to see a same-sex couple on the show.

    Is it just me or is the singing on this show about ten thousand times better than the US DWTS? Maybe they use CDs instead of hideous should-only-be-back-up singers.

    Why don’t they show two men? You see two women all the time in mainstream nightclubs. Their exclusion of two men is an example of Israeli homophobia.
