We all keep wondering whose brilliant idea it was to allow Psycho Mike onto a national TV show, but since that was already given the green light, we started wondering about the poor girl that is going to having to tolerate Mike’s pelvic thrusts on national TV. Well, this morning, we had Lacey Schwimmer, the martyr herself, in the Kevin & Bean studio to give us the dirt on our little Twinkletoes.
While we think that Lacey totally drew the short straw, she swears they’re like two peas in a pod. She admits to going around the Dancing With the Stars studio drawing penises all over the place, so maybe she really is suited to be partners with Mike! After being previously partnered with Steve-O, who used to put his boogers in his pocket, Kevin suggests that Lacey is the specialist for all the “window lickers” on the show.
When asked how the partners are paired up, Lacey, who’s in her fifth season on the show, said that the producers pair them up based on height and personality. Seeing as she often gets the edgier, crazier ones, so the producers must think she’s a little nutty too. Rather than getting mocked for having the partner that no one’s heard of, the other girls on the show are a little jealous of Lacey due to their crush on the “Loveline Loverboy.”
Lacey was familiar with Mike before the show, but had no idea what he looked like. She said she “thought he was gonna be some old guy who’s just on the radio,” and threw in a “no offense you guys. No offense,” to Kevin and Bean, but can we really blame her. The “face for radio” phrase came about for a reason. “But he’s a good lookin’ dude and he has a great body,” she continued.
