DWTS Season 13 Campaign – Ellen Kay and…Derek Hough?

One of PureDerekHough’s readers, Jane, sent me the following transcription of a conversation between Deena Katz (DWTS Casting), Ryan Seacrest, and Ryan’s cohort, Ellen Kay from Ryan’s show today:

You probably already have this info, but if not, Ryan Seacrest and Ellen Kay spoke to Deena Katz this morning trying to pitch Ellen for the show. She asked who Ellen wanted to dance with and she started to say Louis but then said Derek Hough. Ellen asked if Derek would be back on the show and Deena said yes. Also said that Regis called dibs on Derek. Ellen again said she wanted to dance with Derek or Louis. Deena will be sending out invite letters after July 4th.

As we previously reported, Ellen (with Ryan’s help) has been waging a campaign to get herself on Dancing with the Stars for the upcoming season. It appears the campaign continues and she’s lobbying for Derek – or Louis, I guess if Derek’s not back.

But there are other interesting tidbits in this conversation, if everything Deena is saying is true. First, “Derek will be back” – that sounds like a pretty solid statement. I take it to mean they are definitely planning on him being on the show. However, unless Derek is an indentured servant and I don’t know about it, I’m not calling it a sure thing just yet. I think we will see him this season, but it’s always possible something else (more fun and/or more lucrative) could come up and he decides to sit it out.

Interesting tid bit number 2 – they are sending out “invite letters” after July 4th. So, all you bozos claiming to know the cast? I don’t think so. :-) That said – we’ve not seen too many claims by people that they are on the cast yet, and only one person claiming to know some of the cast. I do find this information more helpful though – it means I don’t have to spend a lot of time every day scouring for tidbits…until after the 4th of July. :-)

ETALISTEN FOR YOURSELVES. I haven’t listened to it yet, but Lori tells me that when Ellen says something about Derek, Ryan says “he’s not there”. Deena then insists that Derek will be back, to which Ryan replies, “What do I know about the Houghs?” Which can be taken sarcastically…you judge for yourselves and tell me what you think. :-)

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. :-)

Courtney Cox, Elle Macpherson, Tina Fey, Cheryl Cole, Vince Vaughn, Rob Lowe To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

A site called The Telewatcher is reporting on a slew of new celebrity contenders for the next Seasons of Dancing With The Stars. They are making it almost sound like this is factual, but, I have a feeling, this is just a lot of dreaming and guessing (Heidi, do you agree?) (Heidi: I hear hallucinogens are good. But seriously – someone is just trying to get hits.). I’d say take this news with a grain of salt not that I wouldn’t love these people to dance on the show (well, with an exception to Cheryl Cole). What do you think?

Courtney Cox is hot on Cougar town. Now she will be dancing with the stars as well! I love friends!!!

Elle Macpherson is best known as a super model but is also an actress and entrepreneur. Elle also hosts the Britain version of Next Top Model. Guess she can now add something else to her huge list of accomplishments.

Tina Fey from SNL and 30 rock will be gracing us with her skills on the dance floor this 2012. Hope she is as good at dancing as she is at making me laugh.

Cheryl Ann Cole is an English songwriter, dancer, model, singer, etc… She is the ‘bees knees’ from what I gather.

Vince Vaughn is so cute and is a great actor. I am excited to see him move more than his lips.

Rob Lowe can look confident smiling. But can he look confident smiling and dance at the same time? We will see. I have problems chewing gum and walking. I can’t imagine the pressure on these celebs.

Heidi’s Note: Kids, drugs are bad. Very, very bad. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Lacey Schwimmer’s “Love Soundz” Is Officially Released To iTunes

Above is a picture of Lacey Schwimmer attending the Critics Choice Awards this past week. So much is going in the world of Lacey currently. As Lori reported to you earlier, Lacey has a new single out called “Love Soundz” which I think is amazing. Good Morning America has put the song on it’s Pop News Heat Index for this week. This past Tuesday, “Love Soundz” was officially released to itunes. It’s going to be so interesting to see how well this single does on the Billboard charts during these next few weeks. I really wish Lacey the best with this song because it’s very much “out there” with the best of them with artists like Lady Gaga and Britney Spears. If you’d like to download “Love Soundz”, you can do so by clicking this button Love Soundz - Single - Lacey Schwimmer . Now all Lacey needs is a killer dance video to go with it. Stay tuned because she says a video is in the making for it soon.
