We loved it when Niecy Nash told Bonnie Hunt she wasn't planning to lose her "jiggly parts" while dancing on "DWTS." No wonder the funny lady, who was eliminated from the show, plans to work it to Destiny's Child's hit "Bootylicious" when she returns for the season finale. Here's what else we're talking about -- African-American and Dominican hair salons are facing off with each other, and someone is sending several thousand sunflowers to Michael Jackson's grave site. Plus, guess who's back... Here's what you had to say: Natalie commented: "Do it Niecy!" Anonymous commented: "I go to Dominican hair salons because I am never there for longer than one hour and a half and I always pay under $40."
