Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Cast Rumor – Aaron Carter

All I have are tweets on this one and one of the tweeters (twitterers?) is Aaron Carter and his twin.  You be the judge. Just remember that history shows that the July rumors are often not true – maybe because people can’t keep it to themselves? :-)

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars – What I did on My Summer Vacation

Hee.  A few Dancing with the Stars folks have been very busy. 

A promo site for Burn the Floor currently running at the Longacre Theater on Broadway in NYC is here – from the video it looks awesome. Maksim and Karina are staring in a limited run until August 16th.

Also on the great white way, Samantha Harris as Roxy Hart in Chicago. The Insider has an “inside” look backstage. This story was also picked up by Broadway.com and BuddyTV.

 According to their tweets, Derek Hough and Mark Ballas have been recording new music with their band – and Derek took some of his bandmates and his girlfriend, Shannon Elizabeth, to Disneyland. :-)

Sam, Harry and Derek Hough

If you’re a fan of Cheryl Burke, Derek Hough or Kym Johnson, you’ll want to take a gander at all the fun 4th of July Party pictures – I may have mentioned before that Cheryl threw a Malibu party to celebrate the occassion and I posted a pic or two. There are a LOT of new pics on PureDerekHough. Be sure to follow the links on the various posts on that site to see all the pics of Chery, Kym and Derek. Hot, hot, hot.  A more recent post with Derek and Cheryl follows the big one from the link above. :-)

Random Dancing with the Stars News – Seasons 8 and 9

Jewel nixes the idea that she would try DWTS Season 9 – she and hubby Ty Murray (Season 8 – 4th place) are trying to have a baby.  Numerous websites are reporting this, but I’ve linked to Star Magazine.

We won’t be seeing this anytime soon, if the Star is correct.

Cheryl Burke is telling anyone and everyone about her relationship – and hey, I don’t blame her. The guy is HOT and a health nut. :-)

According to People and StarTraks Photos    Cheryl also threw a 4th of July party in Malibu. If the pictures are anything to go by, she and Derek (at least) had a great time. There are a couple more larger pictures of Derek and Cheryl at Pure Derek Hough.

I think all true DWTS addicts probably know by now that Louis Van Amstel, a professional dancer who was on several early seasons paired with Lisa Rinna (among others), has moved over to So You Think You Can Dance as a choreographer. And from what I’ve seen he’s doing a very good job. But that isn’t DWTS only connection to SYTYCD! DWTS Judge Carrie Ann Inaba has teamed up with the executive producer of SYTYCD, Nigel Lithgow, Katie Holmes and Director Adam Shankman to create Dizzy Feet Foundation. The steering committee of the foundation also boasts Paula Abdul, Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lopez. The foundation’s Mission Statement includes providing scholarships and grants to talented dancers and choreographers working at or through accredited studios and to provide dance education programs to underpriviledged children.

You can see Katie Holmes dance to promote the foundation on So You Think You Can Dance’s 100th episode on July 23rd. Apparently, Katie dances very well. I would expect as much because, although I’ve never been a big fan, I did see her sing and dance on defunct show Eli Stone and she was surprisingly good.

Tweeting Dancing with the Stars – Season 9 and Beyond

In my ongoing quest to find all the dirt on DWTS Season 9, I often come across some pretty humorous, strange, sarcastic tweets about the show.  Some of them are nice, some not so nice – but you know what they say… if people aren’t talking about you, you aren’t doing it right. :-)  Below are some of my recent finds.

Wild guess, or does this kid know something?

Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Cast Rumor – Leslie Jordan?!?

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

Okay, really more like wishful thinking on Leslie’s part. :-) I didn’t recognize the name, but I definitely recognize the face – he’s that cute little commedian with the southern accent. See?

Leslie Jordan

Anyway, according to the Nashville Examiner the guy who played Beverly Leslie on Will And Grace wants to do DWTS.

Is Leslie Jordan heading to ABC’s Dancing With the Stars? If the popular actor-comic-Southern gent has anything to say about it, the answer is: “Yes. Yes. Yes!”

Anybody that has watched Jordan on stage, screen or television, already knows that the man is a bundle of Southern fun. So, it makes sense that the unabashed performer would do more than just one show at the Rrazz Room in the uninhibited mecca that is San Francisco, still basking in its post-Gay Pride glow.

“Wouldn’t that be fun?” Jordan muses with a charmed Southern drawl. “I’m on the list, but it’s a very long list. My problem, career-wise, is that I have been around so long—people know me—but I am almost like a soap opera star. I am known within the gay community but I have never achieved, you know, whatever it is that is …w here you are known in middle America. I just need to kick my career up to that next level.”

“And I have the funniest story to tell if and when I get on,” he adds. “I was awful in P.E. Oh … how I was hit with that Dodge Ball! I was so helpless in sports. And then one semester, out of the blue, we did ballroom dancing. Everybody hated it—but me. I didn’t even know who Martha Graham was. I had this little, fat partner … I had her in a vice grip and swirling her all around. Then the teacher tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Mr. Jordan, you must remember that the young lady is the picture and you are but the frame.’ I looked at her and thought—I want to be the picture.”

Okay, I want this guy on the show!! He’s crackin’ me up!
