Kelly Monaco says Dancing with the Stars 2 is “tainted”

Kelly Monaco is discovering what happens to reality TV stars when viewers discover a new cast on a new season of the same show: they ditch their old favorites almost immediately.

She talked to Brad Blanks of New York’s WPLJ radio station this past weekend, and, according to the New York Daily News, said the following:

“I’m a little biased to the show right now I kind of refuse to comment. 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.”

No, the only thing tainted is your reputation, and it’s covered in jealousy. Specifically, Kelly says she loved Master P (maybe because he sucked more than she does) and can’t stand Stacey Keibler (likely because she’s the new object of affection). Kelly said, “Come on. That chick is like 7 feet tall, and blond, and her ass is out to here. Her legs are as tall as me?”
