Kim’s Tuesday Musings: Did Lando live to dance again?

SPOILER ALERT: I’m going to reveal what happened on “Dancing With the Stars,” so don’t train your Death Star at me if you keep reading

Seriously.

“Star Wars” fans obviously struck back on “Dancing With the Stars,” voting to keep Billy Dee “Lando Calrissian” Williams in the lineup of the ABC reality show.

No one looked more stunned than him. It was a surprise double elimination night which made it an even BIGGER surprise that he’s still dancing on a cloud, even though his feet look as if they are stuck in mud. His tango earned 15 points last night.

With Lando safe it sealed the fate for long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad and hockey player Sean Avery who said goodbye.

On their appearance Tuesday on “Good Morning America,” Nyad was very self-depricating, saying she knew was going to be tough competing against Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis — who, “arabesqued” to the craft services table.

Avery wasn’t so charming, calling out a “DWTS” producer for being the reason he was axed.

He told the “GMA” crew that he didn’t appreciated the “tacky” package airing before he danced last week that characterized him as being the “bad boy” of the dance floor.

“I think in reality TV or any competition, if you have a disagreement with the producers, that seals your fate quite early,” he said Tuesday.

Izzie needs Zzquil

Katherine Heigel has gone from “Knocked Up” to knocked out, appearing in a commercial for ZzzQuil.

I really didn’t think it was her — but apparently it is.

Also, the new Maytag Man is Colin Ferguson, who up until last year was the star of “Eureka!” on the SyFy network.
