Our diva of the week is usually taking us for a ride on the HOT TAMALE TRAIN or making us hold our ears in preparation for her screams....either way, we have to love her and we're glad to have her back as we start this season of So You Think You Can Dance. We're talking about that dancing diva, Mary Murphy.
Things just weren't the same a few years ago when Mary was not in the judging panel for SYTYCD, we missed the screaming, craziness, and the hot tamale train. However, we did enjoy when she would come back and be featured in a dance number. She really brings comedy and realness to the show, and we love her.
Many do not know that besides being a great dance, Mary is also an abusive relationship and thyroid cancer survivor. Her first marriage was very unhappy and was full of physical and verbal abuse from her husband. It lasted 9 years until she knew it was time for her to get out and leave. She underwent treatment in 2011 for her cancer and is now surviving well and cancer free!!!!
SO we're ever to glad to have Mary back on SYTYCD and can't wait to see who will be riding the Hot Tamale Train.....WOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOO! We leave you with her dancing on the show in a samba with Dmitry. Enjoy! Keep dancing our diva of the week....WAHHHHHHHH!!!!!
