Kristin Cavallari Can Actually Dance!

When we first heard that former Hillzie Kristin Cavallari would be competing in the 13th season of “Dancing with the Stars,” we kinda doubted her ability to keep a beat under pressure. Sure, we knew she’d show up looking the part–if anyone can pull off those skimpy, sparkly, borderline slutty (in a “just for Halloween” way) costumes it’s K-Cav–but we were skeptical about her natural ability to work classic routines like the cha-cha and impress them picky judges. Shame on us.

Last night’s “DWTS” premiere featured a handful of crappy first performances, and Kristin’s definitely wasn’t one of them! She and her partner, Mark Ballas, racked up a respectable 19 points and some encouraging words from the twinkletoes triumvirate of Bruno, Carrie and Len. It appears as if her main competition moving forward will be fellow blonde beauties, singer Chynna Phillips and crowd pleaser Carson Kressley.

From this moment forward, consider us true believers and supporters. Go Team KristinBalls!
