Dancing With The Stars: Mike Catherwood Talks About His Experience

April 02, 2011 08:00 AM by Allyson Wells

Radio personality “Psycho” Mike Catherwood was the first casualty on season 12 of Dancing with the Stars.  The comedian definitely kept a sense of humor during his short-lived dancing experience.  He spoke out on giving it is his all, a rumored romance with partner Lacey Schwimmer and the possibility of replacing Regis Philbin on Regis & Kelly.

Mike opened up to Life & Style Magazine and said, “I know I wasn’t the best dancer.  I will never dance again, but I have noticed that I have a tremendous appreciation for the art of dance that I didn’t have before.”  While Mike was not surprised he was elimianted first, he was diappointed.  “Of course you are disappointed as you don’t want to go home first, but there is also an infinite amount of positive stuff that came from being involved up to this point, and you try to focus on that.”

When asked about the possibility of replacing Regis Philbin, Mike revealed, “I would LOVE to say yeah, my people are talking, but I don’t know. I am going back to do Regis & Kelly as a guest since I have been eliminated, but also as a guest host in a couple of weeks to check back in as they have been nice enough to ask me back. But I can’t tell you about what is happening in my career after this. This sounds so cheesy and clichéd, but I am so grateful for all of this. Honestly, if you had talked to 20-year-old Mike, I wouldn’t have been confident about having one job, let alone having jobs thrown my way.”

While Mike will not miss the dance rehearsals, he will miss partner Lacey and also new pal Chris Jericho and his professional partner, Cheryl Burke.  “All of the cast has been riduculously cool.  I wish I had dirt to give you, but they are all such nice people.  I will miss Chris and Cheryl-we were like besties.”  As for a romance, he and Lacey are strictly platonic.  However, he leveled with Life and Style that their mutual booty admiration society will continue outside of the show, “In a totally bland and unthreatening way, from the other side of the room.  I will draw pictures of it or make a statue, but it will be a platonic booty relationship.  Which is my new band name-Platonic Booty Relationship.”
