Dancing with the Stars Season 12 Cast Suggestions

One of my favorite things to do each year is to ask people over on the @puredwts Twitter account to hear which stars people want to see on Dancing with the Stars season 12. Some of them are reasonable, and some of them are unreasonable, but it’s always fun to see which stars people want to see on the DWTS floor.

Here’s the list of responses I got on @puredwts:

@rymacj
Laura Prepon. Or Wilmer V. Okay, ANYBODY from That 70s Show!!

Okay how about Zakk Wylde…he would be awesome and would attract a whole new group of people to DWTS

There you have it.

My dream star on DWTS would be Faith Hill. Never going to happen, but nothing wrong with dreaming a little bit huh?

Ok, what do you think of this list and who would you like to see on DWTS?

DWTS Season 12 – PRO WATCH!!

IT’S ALMOST TIME!!!!!  :-)

Well, it’s about that time again, folks, and even though we are having a Hough-less season I find myself very excited to start this all over again!! Last season was rough there at the end and I’m looking forward to a fresh start – the time off (mostly) did me good. :-) So where are we on the pros?? Well, the only thing certain right now is Derek is out. Most of the remaining pros appear to be assembling in LA, including Damian and Peta – although I’m not sure where Maks and Tony are. But do they really need to be in LA to find out?

Check back here often – we will update this post as we go. With my luck stuff will happen when I’m unavailable. But maybe Courtney and John can update if they don’t see me do something rather quickly and can’t get me online. Here’s the list we’re starting with – I’ve intentionally left out Alec and Edyta based on their tweets, but let us know if I’ve neglected anyone.

The Men

Derek – Out for Season 12; filming Cobu 3D
Maks – ??
Mark – Per @BewitchBallas,  his Management says end of next week he finds out.
Louis – IN (see below)
Tony – IN – per Disney News and the tweet shown below
Damian – ??
Dmitry – ??
Jonathan – ??
Corky – ??

The Women

Cheryl -IN (changed from tentative to “fer sure” per Cheryl’s Facebook)
Anna T. – ??
Lacey – IN (?? see below)**
Chelsie – IN (? See Video Posted by Vogue)
Karina – ??
Kym – ??
Anna D. – ??
Ashly – ??
Peta Murgatroyd* – ??
Julianne* – ??

*I included Peta and Julianne with the women mainly due to some internet blather about Jules and lots of clues about a potential Peta appearance as a full time pro (really, will the producers be able to resist a new “couple”??).

Lacey tweeted a comment not too long ago to Derek saying something like “I’m excited to be your dance class buddy”  – people took this several different ways. Some thinking it meant she was out for the season and working her Dad’s studio, and Derek was participating in some way. I took it to mean that Derek was taking lessons related to his movie, and she and/or her dad was somehow involved. It could be both, I suppose, but Lacey has been abnormally quiet on the subject of DWTS and I can usually rely on her to blab. :-) Times like this I actually LOVE that about her.   But if I find out she has a part in Derek’s movie, I may go postal. :-)  You’ve been warned.

Cheryl and Mark fully intend to be on this season and are waiting to find out if they are or not. I think some questioned whether they would be around based on Cheryl’s book tour and Mark’s music related activities.  Louis also wants to be on the show pretty badly, based on his excitement over finding out. The rest, as far as I can tell, have been pretty mum on the subject.  TALK, PEOPLE!! :-)

ETA:  Think Lacey is in??

ETA 2: How about Louis?? I’ve updated the tweet I had with the one below – when someone tweeted asking if that meant he was on DWTS for sure, he responded with only a wink. :-)

I love shopping in NYC...woohooo....my credit card doesn't. Oh well, I gotta get new clothes for rehearsals....:-)

ETA 3: Tony doesn’t usually say, as I recall, but I’ll take his smile here as a yes.

:) RT @TMCFan4Life: @DWTSMakeup its gonna be very nice to have @TonyDovolani back in the ballroom in a month YAY!cant wait.hes my favorite.

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. :-)
