In this series, we will study the 16 couples on Dancing with the Stars season 9 and predict who has the best chances for success, and who is doomed to humiliation.
Who is Debi Mazar?
You probably recognize her as Vince's publicist Shauna on Entourage. Throughout her career, actress Debi Mazar has worked with famed directors including Woody Allen, Michael Mann, Oliver Stone, and Spoke Lee, in movies where she often portrayed sharp-tongued New Yorkers. She has also starred on Ugly Betty, Friends, and her own sitcom Temporarily Yours on CBS. She co-hosts the popular Internet show Under the Tuscan Gun with her husband, with whom she has two daughters, spending time in both Los Angeles and Tuscany, Italy.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy's Record
Maksim has a pretty respectable record on Dancing with the Stars and is perhaps the best one who has not won a mirror ball trophy. She finished second with Mel B. in season 5 and fourth with Laila Ali, while last year was very disappointing. Let's just hope there's no repeat of last season's Denise Richards fiasco. And yes, Maksim just broke up with fellow DWTS pro Karina Smirnoff.
My Prediction: Middle of the Pack
Purely because of Maksim, this partnership holds some promise. Absolutely no clue, though, if Debi Mazar can dance. She isn't exactly a household name either. They can be a surprise contender, though, given Maksim's appeal and skill on the Dancing with the Stars dance floor.
