"I'm a little biased to the show right now," Monaco reportedly told WPLJ, the New York flagship FM station of the ABC Radio Network, during an interview conducted during Superbowl weekend and broadcast on Monday's "Scott & Todd In The Morning" radio show.
"I kind of refuse to comment," Monaco, who later "lost" her title to first season runner-up John O'Hurley during a subsequent September 2005 Dancing with the Stars: Dance Off special, further elaborated. "The only thing I can say, I just feel like it's lost some of its innocence. It was a very... like a newborn baby, but when they get old, they get kind of tainted."
Monaco is also apparently not a fan of Stacey Keibler, the 5' 11" professional wrestler who has taken over the young hot babe role that the 5' 3" General Hospital star and former Playboy Playmate filled during Dancing with the Stars' first season. "Come on," Monaco told WPLJ interviewer Brad Blanks. "That chick is like 7 feet tall, and blond, and her ass is out to here. Her legs are as tall as me!" (Maybe Dancing with the Stars: Catfight should be the next Dancing with the Stars special?)
In addition to Keibler, four other celebrities remain in the running to be crowned Dancing with the Stars 2's ballroom dancing champion -- George Hamilton, Drew Lachey, Jerry Rice, and Lisa Rinna. Dancing with the Stars 2 will air its finale on Thursday, February 23 at 8PM ET/PT.
