Will you be watching Lil’ Kim flaunt her ballroom dance moves on tonight’s two-hour season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars“?  I certainly will.  In case you haven’t noticed, I watch a lot of television and “Dancing” is another one of my must-see TV guilty pleasures.

The naughty rapper, former prison inmate, and poster child for bad plastic surgery, however, seems like an unlikely casting choice for the series which has featured less scandalous women of color including singer Toni Braxton, ex-Spice Girl Mel B, and actress Vivica A. Fox.  Despite Kim’s checkered past, I hope the petite dynamo excels in the competition and shows everyone there’s more to her than her Black Barbie facade.
