Wow--actor Ernie Hudson pulled out all the stops (thus his picture gets listed) and jumped from 4th into 2nd place in Trading With The Stars. This continues his momentous climb as he had previously moved from 8th to 4th. So Ernie is definitely on a roll or donut -or just plain getting some great advice. Ernie knocks fellow actor Stephen Collins into 4th place behind James Cromwell, while Jonathan Tucker keeps a hold on 1st place. And Johnny Bench might take a few lessons from Ernie. The Hall of Fame catcher keeps 10th place very warm!
It's the "usual suspects" holding down the top three spots on Trading With The Stars. Jonathan Tucker and a very active Stephen Collins maintain a status quo by holding the first two positions. Jonathan has not made any transactions except for bonus bucks since 4/23, and Stephen had been active buying and selling and getting big gains on Advanced Energy--balanced by losses in C-Cor. James Cromwell continues to hold 3rd place.
