DWTS in Iowa – Pictures and Video

I found some video and pictures (and a review, and a blog) about the show last night in Iowa.  It sounds like it was a lot of fun – very jealous of the attendees. ;-)

Pictures courtesy of  Star 102.5!  I pasted a few of them below (gallery – click on the pic and then click again for full size):

Kurt from Star 102.5 also contributed a blog. Read the whole thing, but my favorite part is:

Then we saw Shawn, Mark, and Derek Hough. Then, Lacey Schwimmer walks into our area wearing some workout pants and her sports bra. Very nice! Apparently, dancing creates fantasic abs. Jennifer caught me looking, but I think I get a pass considering Derek and Mark apparently refuse to wear shirts backstage.

I’ve only found one set of videos for this show thus far, thanks to Blazing1010. I’ve copied a couple of them, below, but there are a total of 13 on his/her YouTube channel.

I also posted a video of Derek and Chelsie, and a video of Derek, Mark and Lacey doing a hip hop number on Pure Derek Hough.

July 27, 2009 I Written By

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 9 Cast – Rumor Roundup

UPDATE: Check out the latest Dancing with the Stars Season 9 cast rumors here.

UPDATE 2: It’s official, check out the cast of Dancing with the Stars Season 9. Nice to see lots of the cast were on our rumor list.

So, we’ve heard countless rumors about the Season 9 Cast, many of which I’ve written about on this site. I figured it was time to do a listing of all the rumors to date – what can I say? I’m a fan of lists. :-)  The rumors have varying degrees of plausibility, so you guys be the judge.

First, the men:

  • Ashley Hamilton
  • Greg Louganis
  • Aaron Carter
  • Leslie Jordan
  • Lou Ferrigno
  • Danny Gokey
  • Kurt Angle
  •  

    Next, the women:

  • Debi Mazar
  • Vera Wang
  • Dominique Moceanu
  • Erin Andrews
  • Bethenny Frankel
  • A lot of these rumors come from the stars themselves, although I think that’s happened before and turned out to not be true.  Donny Osmond  isn’t on my lists although I’ve read in other places that he wants to do it (please no).  Also, right after the season ended, Suge Knight was also rumored to be on S9 – which I have a hard time believing, but apparently the Steve O rumors began right after S7 ended so you never know.

    I’ve seen this list floating around the net, but I’m somewhat skeptical – for one thing, I couldn’t find the original source so it could be a wishlist.  A couple people I would consider too high profile.

    Da Brat
    Alicia Sacramone
    Heather Locklear
    Jewel
    Aubrey O’Day
    Christie Brinkley
    Melissa Joan Hart
    Aaron Carter
    Tony Danza
    James Wagner
    Johnny Weir
    Brian McKnight
    Lou Ferrigno
    Mike Greenberg

    James Wagner could be Jack Wagner from the Bold and the Beautiful – and who is also dating Heather Locklear. I also read that Jewel has already ruled it out because she wants to have a baby. Alicia Sacramone? If she’s partnered with Mark I might hurt someone. There are a few pros who never get athletes, ya know?

    SO – what rumors have you heard that I’m missing?? I saw an actual list with professional partners next to them, but now I can’t find it. It was too good to be true anyway (e.g. Derek Hough and Tara Lipinski). :-)
