Do you watch Dancing With the Stars (DWTS)? I watch it periodically. Every once in a while they list a cast that really interests me. And that's one of the reasons that DWTS is a good thing to watch to make small talk with people. No matter who you are, there is probably someone you're interested in watching and rooting for. (I loved the year Donald Driver won!)
So now DWTS has released the next cast, and I think I'm going to watch. There are a couple people on there I'll be interested in seeing, like Lisa Vanderpump from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which is another show that is good for making small talk.
Normally I don't post negative stories here because in general they don't make for good small talk, but this one about the dog possibly poisoned less than a week after appearing at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is something that people are sure to have an opinion about. People love their dogs, and the thought of someone actually harming a beautiful animal like this is really shocking. Dogs are often a popular topic in association with friendship because they are such great companions. (Here are five ways they teach us to be better friends.)
