The birthday girl for June 29 is Katherine Jenkins.
I really didn’t know who Katherine Jenkins was until she appeared as a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars.” The only other time I had seen her on television was when she had performed as a guest on DWTS. Nevertheless, I quickly became a fan of the singer because she was a terrific dancer and an eager competitor.
It didn’t surprise me to discover that she has a Cancer sun sign. I often describe Cancer women as being rather hard-shelled because they can put up their defenses in order to get through anything. Yet when they drop their defenses, they’re as mushy as they come. As the least-known celebrity on DWTS, Jenkins defended her position as underdog from the first moment that she walked onto the stage. She really impressed me, although watching her blubber behind the scenes was a little annoying. Oh well — that’s a Cancer native for you!
