Not bad for a 63 year old! I think she would be so much prettier without so much makeup. She has that plastic surgery look. I think older people look so much more beautiful with natural aging.

Just me...

I agree Marty. I thought she did a beautiful job dancing, and while I think she's a beautiful woman, her face kind of creeps me out. Too much make-up -- too much botox?? Whatever -- it looks like a mask. She seemed so serious too, at least what I've seen. Maybe that's another side effect of the plastic surgery over-kill. No facial expressions.

When they show the clips of the rehearsals, you get to see the celebrity's personality and the overall chemistry between the celebrity and their professional partner.

I have seen none of this with Priscilla. Maybe she is smiling but we just can't tell? She has absolutely no personality.

Love her. Maybe the Presley thing but considering how media shy she is this is a huge step for her. Her second dance was better than her first. She seemed to come out of her shell a little more the second time. Agree about the makeup but still she still shows a lot of guts. I also like that Louie is back. I have missed his amazing dance skills. Not a easy on the eyes as Max but I like him.

Geesh, Priscilla has finally turned herself into a mannequin. What is wrong with these people? Can't having all that freakin money and enjoying it be enough? I guess she never paid any attention to Joan Rivers otherwise, she would have spared the knife.

She is doing really well for a 62 year old. I saw some shots of her during practice without so much makeup on and she looked better. She just looks so gross with the heavy slop on her face. Too much botox too.
