'Dancing with the Stars': Candace Cameron's Christianity Comes Out of the Closet
By Alexander Abad-Santos | The Atlantic Wire (via Yahoo - video clips at link)– 19 hrs ago.

One of the story lines bubbling just below the surface of Dancing With the Stars with this season is whether or not we'll see Candace Cameron-Bure flash the polarizing brand of Christianity her brother adheres to. We got a taste of it last night. 

A week after a stompy, aggressive contemporary dance that netted her a 25 and second place, DJ Tanner was back for week two. While she had hinted in her segment last week that she wasn't going to be "sexy", Cameron's religion came off a bit more aggressively this time, as she talked about straddling the balance between her beliefs and Dancing With The Stars. The implicit point Cameron is making here is that Dancing is too sexy of a show, and it might encroach on her Christian beliefs. 

That led to this post-dance interview where Candace felt like she had to justify her sexiness ...  but also had to let everyone know why she may be holding back. 

The producers of Dancing love this, because they love being thought of as "sexy." Erin Andrews must have repeated "sexy" four to five times, but you can't help but feel that Cameron might be giving Dancing too much credit. Dancing is not sexy. She need only look as far as fellow tribute Cody Simpson for proof ...

And don't leave Billy Dee Williams out either ...

And her partner, Mark Ballas, is a harmless, nice guy ...

With her husband in mind, Cameron's dance fell a little flat. Ballas, bless his heart, compensated with slower choreography which, at some points, just looked like aggressive hugs ...  That was allegedly a Rumba .... 

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
