Being on Dancing with the Stars is a great gig, but there are some drawbacks. Celebuzz talked to the show's sweet, sexy judge Carrie Ann Inaba, who tells us the WORST part of the job!

"The hardest part of being a judge is when there is somebody who is an icon like a Buzz Aldrin -- or someone who I have so much respect for off the dance floor -- and then they come out and do a routine that you know they tried their best, but it may be lacking in a few areas," she says. "It’s really hard to give a lower score when that happens."

As a judge, "That is part of my job," she adds.

"I don’t get to judge them on all their achievements in their whole life. So, that is very hard to do; it’s really hard to hurt their feelings."
Despite the hard parts of the job, "I love being able to be a part of this whole new trend of dancing coming back into society," she says. "People are dancing again, people are touching each other, people are interacting with dance, people are getting fit with dance, and people are dancing as a family ... It’s wonderful." 

When it comes to her post-DWTS goals, she already has a plan!

"I’ve always wanted to have an animal sanctuary," she says. "I’m going to work really hard in this business and I’m going to find a way to be as successful as Tippi Hedren so I can have an animal sanctuary."

She has been able to follow her passion by helping animal rescue groups and hosting the Humane Society Awards to honor those who do good work in the community.

The animal lover also just debuted a brand-new web series, called Crib Cats, in which she helps find deserving cribs for shelter cats in need of a forever home. The first episode is below -- subscribe to the Petsami YouTube channel for new episodes each week!

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program () I have used Photoshop Elements since vorisen 2 and I strongly believe it is the best photo-editing program available for under $100. It will do most of the editing tasks that the full vorisen of Photoshop does but at a fraction of the cost. It is the software I have my Digital Photography and Digital Drawing and Painting students use for the college courses I teach. If you are serious or semi-serious about editing your photos I highly recommend that you purchase this. In addition, an important advantage of learning (and using) Elements is that if you decide to someday move up to the full vorisen of Photoshop all the stuff you learned translates to the more expensive program. Also, there is a TON of instructional material available online (most of it free!) and in books that will help you learn this program. If you just want an easy program to use to edit a few photos now and then you can find cheaper software programs, and many online programs that are free. One good free online application is Sumo Paint.My recommendations to current Photoshop Elements users:1. Element 9 Users: The new features in Elements 10 basically deal with organizing your photos and some quick and easy templates and photo effects. For the most part, I wouldn't recommend upgrading to Elements 10 if you have Elements 9.2. Elements 3-8 Users: I recommend upgrading to Elements 10 because there was a huge improvement between vorisens 8 and 9 (content aware, puppet warp, and the ability to add masks to layers). I hope this helps!
