DWTS Season 9 – Other Rumors Confirmed?

Rumors about the new rules for this season have been floating around for a while now, but it appears that Cheryl Burke may have confirmed a few to E! News’ Marc Malkin the other night:

“There’s a rule now that we’re not allowed to train for more than five hours a day for the first two weeks,” professional hoofer Cheryl Burke told me last night at the Anna Faris-hosted Malibu-Reef Check event in Beverly Hills.

And there’s more…

“After every two hours, you have to have a 30-minute break,” Burke said. “And we have to have one full day off a week.”

Sounds pretty reasonable to me. When I first heard this one I was afraid it was for the entire season. The first two weeks sounds better – some people just need more time!

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 Season 9 – The Siblings Cast?

According to Pop Crunch, not only is LaToya Jackson in talks to appear, but so is her brother Jermaine Jackson!!

While her rep has refused to confirm the report, on Tuesday, Us Weekly learned that La Toya has been approached to compete on the talent show. And in related news, La Toya’s brother, singer-turned-reality TV star Jermaine Jackson, has also been tapped for a spot on the ninth season of DWTS, premiering next month.

The reason why I say “siblings” cast is because I’ve heard “chatter” in several places about Brandy and HER brother. Someone in the comments on a previous post mentioned it, and I saw it in three other places including Twitter and the ABC Boards. Who knows if it’s true, and this could certainly be a giant game of telephone (possibly confusing siblings). Throw in that Mark/Derek/Julianne are family (even though Julianne won’t be back – or so we’re told), and all we need to hear is that Benji Schwimmer will be joining the pros (please, no – love Lacey, but no Benji please). Anybody wanna bet? :-)

How about Jack Osborne and Chelsie against Kelly Osborne and Mark? LaToya and Maks versus Jermaine and Kym?? Brandy and Derek versus Brandy’s brother and Lacey? Egads!! Or is that Gadzooks!! :-)  Hey David, does Beth Horn have a brother?? You keep telling me about the campaign to get her on the show (Check Beth Horn’s facebook).
