John McCain stops his wife from appearing on “Dancing with the Stars”

As much of a maverick as former presidential candidate John McCain likes to portray himself as, it’s pretty clear that when it comes to wife Cindy, he wears the pants in the family. He kept her on a very tight leash throughout the campaign, controlling her stump speeches at public appearances to the point that they all sounded the same. And last winter, when Cindy was approached to appear as a contestant on the ABC show “Dancing with the Stars,” the Arizona senator apparently said no way.

SEN. John McCain might regret choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate, but an even worse decision will deprive his fellow Americans of what would have been the best season of “Dancing With the Stars” ever. Our impeccably placed source says, “Just before Thanksgiving, Cindy McCain (above) started talks with producers to appear as a dancer on the show. She wanted to do it very badly.” But this week, Sen. McCain “put the kibosh on it.” Reps for the show and McCain didn’t return calls.

Poor Cindy. What else is she supposed do to while John heads back to the senate – go back to being a pill freak with a Botox addiction? If you recall, Cindy was allowed a very quick appearance as herself on one of her husband’s Saturday Night Live appearances, and she was actually pretty funny, even if she didn’t have any lines. There were unsubstantiated rumors of an affair last fall that painted Mrs. McCain as love-starved and lonely, but so far nothing’s been proven. This could have been a fun opportunity for Mrs. McCain, and since it’s unlikely that her husband would run for president again, I don’t see who it would hurt. C’mon, John – let your wife dance!

    Yeah, what a horrible hard life she has. Poor wee thing.

  2. kate says:

    why doesn’t she just divorce him and take her enormous fortune with her?

  3. Bunny says:

    Pill freak? Way harsh. But I suspect only Republicans are pill freaks while other addicts have a “disease.”

  4. bros says:

    good thing too-the way this brittle woman is prone to fractures and bruises and breaks, i wouldnt want the liability if I were DWTS.

  5. PJ says:

    She’s quite a bit younger than he is, isn’t she?

  6. Diva says:

    She totally reminds me of a Stepford wife. Watching her nod along behind McCain during his speeches. Her face looked like she wasn’t even really listening, but she just kept nodding and nodding in agreement with every word he said, even when it didn’t seem like a place to nod.

    What in heaven’s name would it hurt to “allow” her to do DWTS???

  7. Judy says:

    He is nothing but a vulgar control freak and she should have dumped him years ago.

  8. anastasiabeaverhausen says:

    Bunny, she has admitted she has been addicted to prescription pain pills and was even caught stealing from her own charity to feed her addiction.

  9. tigerlille says:

    She shouldn’t take this crap from him. The money is all hers. He belittles her and calls her names like f***ing c*** in public.

    Straight Talk Excess: John McCain called wife “c*nt”, “trollop”

    John McCain called his wife Cindy a “c*nt” in front of at least five witnesses on the campaign trail in 1992, according to Cliff Schecter’s new book:

    Three reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain’s intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole and consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain’s hair and said, “You’re getting a little thin up there.” McCain’s face reddened, and he responded, “At least I don’t plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you c*nt.” McCain’s excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days. [The Real McCain, PoliPoint Press, 2008.]

    lol thanks dante. thats hilarious…poor cindy!

  13. RCDC says:

    to be fair, cindy mccain is a dumbass. the reason her speeches were so scripted was that when she went off script a couple times early on, she said ridiculous crap that his people then had to backpedal on – let’s face it, with john “worst temper” mccain and sarah “unsubstantiated ‘facts’” palin around, they already had enough of that to do in the campaign. she is a political liability, and the likelihood that she would say something with the potential to embarrass mccain on national tv is really really high.
