Cindy's Thoughts: Week 5

Hello Strictly friends.

I am over the moon about our Paso-Doble. The judges said nice things about our performance and we really felt good about it. Quite inspiring!

But we have no intention of getting success sickness, we need to work even harder and do even better. This week is the Samba and it is not to be underestimated. So I will practice till I drop down if I have to.

This week however we will need your vote more then ever and I want u to know that I DO REALLY appreciate u voting! Pls sms 7 to 34766. We will make u proud.

My outfit is cute and our routine is quite fun.

What a shock it was last week that Sarah was in the dance off again with GUGU. He is a nice guy - even though he said all those mean things about everyone on his blog! Maybe he was on some other planet when he wrote that, funny how u r sometimes so surprised by someone.

Was also a bit sad to c Adil go, it's kind of.a part of the family that leaves. But I suppose someone has to go and I (pls God) don't want it to be me just yet.

In the beginning there were a few people I thought maybe thought too much of themselves or - *laugh* - were too loud. But now I am kind of used to everyone and got to know everyone better and realize once again that I must never judge people on the surface but rather get to know them and then decide.

Yes this season we do indeed have a very cool group of celebrities and dancers. We're all going through the same challenges and joys and there is something very nice about being in a team like that. The camaraderie and friendship.

For the first time last week I really started enjoying myself and stressed less. It's something Ian (Strictly presenter) said to me. He asked why r u doing this? I replied - 'because I want to learn to dance' He said ' then don't forget that and enjoy!

So instead of stressing and worrying to outdo everyone, I am learning to dance and having the time of my life!!
And it's all thanks to u!! Thank U!

Xxxx

They weren't really MEAN now. To even write all those things on a public forum does say they were meant in the 'goodest' of spirits. Tell us about the nice guy Gugu is....like does he go around "collecting" info for his blog and makes people forget that he's going to write about them?

*laugh*.......who, Hlubi/Anele?

Yho Cindy, unamanga! You were stressing about the judges not having anything good to say about your performances mos. Mara don't worry, you don't seem set to leave anytime soon so yeah, go ahead and have the time of your life.

Which is worse? This or Miss SA?

Haai Cindy please spare us.

You said that the judges give you crap because you are the prettiest there.
Please this is not miss SA where you have to look pretty and walk around in a swim suit. There's actual work involved in this.

Get over yourself and stop complaining, the judges judge dancing not modeling.
This is not high School where the girls dont like you coz you're pretty. Please man

In response to GML's remark.... I was fortunate to have met Cindy the night before this episode aired.  I spent some time with her over dinner hearing about her daily schedule.  I also got to see her practice for a bit that evening, literally until the guys shut the lights off on her.

Having only just met her that evening, I dare say she one dedicated woman.  And yes she has a very pretty face...but she is so much much more.  She is a very smart business woman as well.  I think the "get over yourself" was harsh and a bit uncalled for.  She is so over herself.  I saw her at her least glamorous moment and she radiated both beauty and personality.

I dare anyone to try and spend a day following her schedule.  I spent a mere few hours and I was exhausted.

Hey Elaine USA

When you next spend time with Cindy, do ask her to post replies on her article, will you? Thanks!

Hi all ... I am Kurt, Cindy's designer on the show. I'm breaking anonimity so that you all know that I am coming from a place of sincerity! This reply is directed specifically at GML. You are attacking one of the nicest people around! Models come stereotyped (unfortunately) and I could actually never have wished for two better gals on the show to dress ( I design for Tessa as well.) Please GML, get your facts straight before you go attacking the celebs on the show ... Cindy is very tough on herself and the consumate professional! I have never heard her complain, snap irritably or talk badly about anyone. She is a fantastic role model and definitely keeps me on my toes and constantly upping my game. We brainstorm her costumes together and I must say I look forward to spending time with her immensely. We have developed trust and respect for each other in the short time we have spent together ... she is just fabulous! Don't be nasty to her GML ... she would definitely not be nasty to you!
For Toxic: I am sure she desperately tries to get back to you guys, but she really has been shooting Pasella for 10 hours a day and then still rehearses to the early hours. I am sure at some point she will reply :o).
