Chynna Phillips on 'Dancing with the Stars': 'Orphans were dancing around me.' Huh?

Chynna Phillips would like to thank all of the little people for her premiere performance on Dancing with the Stars.

She means that literally: When she broke into a solo during her Viennese Waltz with Tony Dovolani, the singer claims she “literally felt the angels of the orphanage that I work with” and how “all the little kids were dancing around with me.” When Phillips first joined the show, she said she wanted to raise awareness about the “40,000 orphans running the streets of Tijuana.”

“They were dancing around me. I could feel them. And I could feel their energy,” Phillips told reporters after her performance that helped her earn one of the highest scores of the night. (She earned a 22 and tied with JR Martinez). “We are on a mission to build a 60-room dorm for these kids!”

Okay, but what about that fancy footwork, Chynna? “You know what’s funny, when you don’t know what to expect and you don’t know anything different … I’ve never watched Dancing with the Stars before, so I didn’t know that nobody gets solos the first
time,” she explained. “That was good, at least I didn’t know so it didn’t make me scared. I  didn’t know if the cameras were on me for the solo. I had no idea. Tony just told me to do it and I did it.”

Added Dovolani, “When I was watching her do the solo, I could tell something more than just what she’s doing. So I asked her, ‘something came over you. You weren’t normal,’ meaning you weren’t Chynna that thinks, you were Chynna that embodied this special energy. And she said there were some angels around her.” — With reporting from Carrie Borzillo

    I too work with Orphans in Mexico and share her deep love for them. If she can shed light on the issue and get people to do something about it, I’m going to be thrilled
    I thought She, David, Kristin and Hope did the best
    I think Elisabeta might be the first to go.

    You may try to change your life now even the life before is well. But many people want to have another new found, a new kind of dating feeling is a great place for singles to get to know each other, and talk about religion, work, sports, life, relationship, or more. I can assure you that your will be happy here.

    What? Another lunatic voicing their odd crazy behavior and rantings. Just shut up and dance.

    Did I miss something? Did she mention the orphans on the show. I did think she looked sublime and I am so glad Tony got a partner that seems to suit him and that the judges like. She seemed like a really lovely person. Please send Kardahian and Mark B, who still managed a solo around his partner in week 1, home.

    At least these angels are real kids. I’m just grateful she didn’t pull a Kathy Ireland and go all “Jesus is in my dancing shoes.”

  • sv

    ….. Oooookay.

    Wow, what a douchebag

    Not to disturb anyone and what the judges said, but I thought that Chynna Phillips dance performance with her partner was boring! A little snoozy in some parts. She has potential, but it had a boring dull middle that didn’t pull me in.

    obviously like your web-site but you need to check the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come again again.
