ABC Censors Strike Lachey's Move for West Coast

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Not that we care much about Dancing with the Stars or the fact that Drew Lachey and partner Cheryl Burke won the dance off last night, but we heard through the grapevine that ABC censors were hard at work Friday, saving the morals of the West Coast.

In a nutshell: Drew and pardner did a freestyle dance to the country tune "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy" -- yeah, you read that classy title right -- and afterwards, one of the judges gushed that Nick Lachey's younger brother was "ready for the lead in 'Brokeback Mountain: The Musical!'" Drew responded by taking the hat off Burke's head and covering his tushie. Or at least that's what heard. We didn't see it. And neither did most of you.

Whew. LAist feels so much better and safer for being protected from Lachey's move. Don't you?
