DWTS 2009 Couples Update

UPDATE: Check out the latest on Dancing with the Stars Season 8.

I previously posted my mostly sarcastic (and hopefully funny) Dancing with the Stars 2009 couples suggestions.  It looks like only 2 of the couples have officially been announced.  GMA had Denise Richards on the show this morning and introduced her to her partner Maks.  It was kind of fun to see Denise see her partner for the first time.  It was also funny that Denise and her house/family have affectionately named Maks, Maksy Pooh.  This looks like it could be fun.  She seems like the exact opposite of hard core Maks.  I can’t wait for their first confrontation.

The second couple People announced was Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough.  Imagine that!

Ok, so Chuck and Julianne being together isn’t a surprise at all.  Should be interesting to watch.  My wife and I went to the finale of the last season of Dancing with the Stars (thanks Julianne’s mom) and we had a chance to meet Chuck and Julianne backstage.  It was cute to see their young love.  We also were able to chat for a second with Chuck Wicks and he was super laid back and nice.  We’ll definitely be cheering for them both.

Here’s the picture we took at last year’s finale with Chuck Wicks.  Let’s hope he’s at the finale of next year holding up the mirror ball trophy.

Dancing with the Stars 2009 Couples Suggestions

Tonight, they announced the official Dancing with the Stars cast. They still haven’t announced the couples that will be dancing on Dancing with the Stars 2009. Until we hear the official announcement of couples, here’s my take on who might be good partners for the stars on Dancing with the Stars 2009. To make things simple, I just used the professionals from last season even though I’m pretty sure that at least a couple of the professional dancers will be different this season as well.

Chuck Wicks and Lacey Schwimmer just because just think how jealous Julianne would be if this happens. Actually I’ll be surprised if Chuck dances with anyone other than Julianne Hough. I know if I were Julianne I wouldn’t let Chuck dance on the show without me. However, that pick was too easy so I took Lacey to replace Julianne.

Denise Richards and Alec Mazo because Alec always seems to get really attractive stars for his partners. I wonder if that’s just to make Edyta jealous.

Gilles Marini and Inna Brayer because people barely know Gilles Marini and they barely know Inna Brayer. Sounds like a perfect match for failure to me.

Lawrence Taylor and Karina Smirnoff because she deserves to be with a popular football player. Too bad Lawrence Taylor isn’t really all that popular and is way past his prime. He’s definitely not Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice or Jason Taylor. Too bad Karina, another year of not doing very well.

Lil’ Kim and Corky Ballas just because it would be the funniest looking couple. Actually, I’m guessing Corky won’t be back for this season, but just imagine him and Lil’ Kim together and you’ll realize that Dancing with the Stars is actually a comedy.

Nancy O’Dell and Maks Chmerkovskiy because they would just make the best couple. 2 beautiful and tall dancers would be great to watch.

Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas Jr. since Shawn is really short and Mark is probably the shortest professional dancer.

Steve-O and Edyta Sliwinska because Edyta always loves to make the oddest faces when her partners do something weird. Just wait to see her reactions after being around Steve-O.

Steve Wozniak and Kym Johnson because Kym always gets screwed by having a partner that can’t dance. Plus, just having Woz and Kym together would make nerds all over the world proud to be a nerd.

Belinda Carlisle and Tony Dovolani because Tony always seems to get stuck with the old ladies. Not that Belinda’s that old, but this group is relatively young.

David Alan Grier and Cheryl Burke because David is likely to come up with something like “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner” and Cheryl will wonder how she went from winning so many mirror ball trophies to this. Plus, the producers won’t want Cheryl to win too many times and so this would pretty much guarantee she won’t.

Ty Murray and Julianne Hough since Ty seems to like country singers.

Jewel and Derek Hough because 2 beautiful blonds provide an interesting story. Blonds might be stupid, but I’m guessing that Derek and Jewel would prove that blonds can dance!

As you can tell, this was a real scientific method for selecting the possibly Dancing with the Stars season 8 couples.
