Okay, I thought I had been keeping a pretty close eye on things in the way of rumors for Season 9. Up to today, I hadn’t seen anything that I hadn’t already covered (that I considered remotely plausible ). But today, the Louisville Examiner posted a list of recurring names with some additional peeps – some which will NEVER happen and I feel comfortable saying that. I mean, Adam Lambert? No freakin’ way. You heard it here first. I would LOVE it, but the guy is HUGE right now and just off American Idol (ahem – a FOX show with a sister called So You Think You Can Dance which will be airing their performance show on the same night as DWTS result show). Not happening. Anyway, here is there list:
Sherri Shepherd, a co-host on ABC’s ‘The View’, mentioned on the show a few weeks ago, that she had been approached by Dancing With the Stars. Sherri said that she was thrilled and definitely considering accepting ABC’s offer…and she has lost a LOT of weight.
* Vera Wang – TV Guide
* Ashley Hamilton – TV Guide
* Erin Andrews – Reality TV Magazine
Also rumored to be cast on season 9 of Dancing With the Stars.
* Andrew Firestone
* Adam Lambert
* Alicia Sacramone
* Katie Holmes
* Leslie Jordan
* Aubrey O’Day
The Shari Sheppard thing is weird, because I know she’s a huge fan, and I know she would love to do the show – but this is the first I’ve seen her name on the net as a possibility. Now, granted, I have a full time (aka real) job so there are things I’ve missed, but I would think there would be more talk about her. This one I think is pretty plausible in any case.
Katie Holmes? No way. And if she is on the show, I’ll feel sorry for her. She was pretty badly savaged after her appearance on SYTYCD (sorry – rightly so, IMO); between that and her marriage to Tom Cruise, she might regret her decision.
Alicia Sacramone? Sure, it’s possible. Mainly because I have no clue who she is. But I’m surprised that Dominque Moceanu isn’t on this list – she had her pic taken with Tony and was pretty blunt about wanting to be on the show.
Andrew Firestone? Sure, why not. He’s cute, he’s a former bachelor and I think he makes wine. That gets him a vote in my book.
Tommie used a great pic of Maks and Karina (I’ve never seen her look so BUFF), so I had to include it here:
