monica seles bottoms out on dancing’s first day

Monica Seles - Dancing wIth the Stars

Monica Seles made her TV dancing debut on last night’s Dancing with the Stars. She performed a foxtrot in a pink bejeweled gown with partner Jonathan Roberts. As expected (she “can’t tell a mango from a tango,” she says), she ended the night with fives out of tens — the lowest score of all the contestants — from judges Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Anne Inaba, and Len Goodman. Go nuzzle in the bosoms of your nine Grand Slam titles, Monica, and come back better next week!

Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi — as expected — earned the night’s top score of 27 (nines from all three judges).

Watch: See Monica’s foxtrot here. And the Gooch with partner Mark Ballas here.

Uhh, what’s a foxtrot? Aside from being a fun comic strip, it also refers to a dance step created by Harry Fox and popularized by Arthur Murray. “Slow, slow, quick, quick.”

Starstruck by Seles: Tennis Channel dispatched Jamie LaRosa to the DWTS taping (he’s blogging about it) and he got a chance to interview the tennis champ. Read the exchange after the cut…
