I Don't Dance

For those of you hoping to see Danica and, say, Maksim Chmerkovskiy getting their mambo on, reader "mmack" forwards this total buzzkill from the Chicago Tribune.

But ask her about 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Fresh from winning the "Dancing With the Stars" television contest, two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves recommended some other potential candidates to the show. At the top of the list is fellow IndyCar Series driver Danica Patrick, already the most glamorous driver in the series. But Patrick, 25, said "no way" when asked about competing on the show, the Indianapolis Star reported. "I'm telling you, no way." Patrick doesn't think her personality is warm enough for cameras to beam her to more than 20 million people a night, and in a way, she said Castroneves proved that last fall. "His personality is so infectious," she said. "He smiles all the time, he plays to the camera, and he loves [the attention]. I'm a little too serious. People at home would be going, 'What's wrong [with her]?'"
It's OK, stewardess I speak Danica. Allow me to translate; "Am I going on Sleeping With the Stars? Are you effing kidding me? Hello, I'm married! I can't exactly afford an expensive divorce at this point in my career so, no thank you very much."

    Actually I think she pretty much nailed it. The girl doesn't exactly radiate charm and personality.

    While Danica! may not have charm, she does have spunk. American Gladiators anyone?
