DWTS Season 13 Rumor!! Evelyn Lozada Part Deux…

Oy veh. Another non-celebrity trying very, very hard to give the impression she’s definitely on the next season of DWTS. To be fair, it sounds like she is the equivalent of a Melissa Rycroft or a Trista Sutter…but come on gang, really?? The only reason I give this one any bit of credence is because we originally reported this rumor as coming from TMZ. Say what you want about TMZ, but they have leaked the cast early in the past. Of course, they don’t always get it right…but they don’t always get it wrong either. :-)

Here’s Evelyn’s contribution today, on Twitter. Make of it what you will. :-)

Yay!RT @ I don't even watch dancing with the stars. but if @ going to be on the next season ima be a faithful viewer

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. :-)

DWTS Season 13 – Pro Watch!! August 3, 2011

Did someone say Pro Watch?? Why yes, Courtney did. :-) Every season we do a post that keeps a running update on which pros appear to be confirmed for Season 13. Keep in mind that we post it how we hear it – unless a Pro says “Yes, I am on DWTS Season 13″, the rest is all conjecture and guessing and hoping and inference and gossip. We try very hard to label guesses and hopes as just that – guesses and hope. :-) Ain’t nothing wrong with a good bit of hope – we just try to call it straight up.

I’m not going to continually update this particular post – when it’s time to do a bit of live updating, I will let you know. I think it’s a bit too soon. My boy Tommy B tweeted today that the cast announcement will be August 29th (which Court was “psychic” about), which means we are getting down to the wire and the rumors and pro confirmations will start flying fast and furious. :-) But the “for sure” pro cast list (aka “leaks”) is probably still two weeks out. At least. :-)

The MEN
Derek Hough – YES, per Deena Katz on Ryan Seacrest’s Radio Show
Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Most likely, per Maks’ twitter
Mark Ballas – Unknown
Louis Van Amstel – Unknown
Tony Dovolani – Unknown, but a recent interview could be taken as an affirmative – but just a guess, IMO
Dmitry Chaplin – Unknown
Corky Ballas – Unknown

The WOMEN
Cheryl Burke – I’d be shocked if not
Kym Johnson – unknown
Chelsie Hightower – strong possibility
Lacey Schwimmer – unknown
Karina Smirnoff – unknown
Anna Trebunskaya – unknown

Ballroom Battlers – confirmed by Louis
Lacey Schwimmer
Mark Ballas
Tony Dovolani
Louis Van Amstel
Cheryl Burke
Karina Smirnoff

For the record, I do NOT believe that taking part in the Ballroom Battle is indicative of the pros’ participation in DWTS with a celebrity one way or another. I’ve also heard that BB is NOT going to be that time consuming, to the point that it would preclude those pros from competing.

The Troupe
Oksana Dmyrenko
Tristan MacManus – Yes
Peta Murgatroyd
Kiki Nyemchek
Nicole Volynets
Ted Volynets

I assume all the same troupe members will be back – but I will update them as required. As always, give me the heads up if you hear anything that I’ve missed – I’m not stingey with credit. :-)

Louis Van Amstel Talks On New Set Planned For Dancing With The Stars 13, Ballroom Battle, And More!

This last weekend, Louis Van Amstel travelled back to Salt Lake City, Utah to teach more La Blast classes as well as working on the new “Ballroom Battle” segment for Dancing With The Stars. On “Ballroom Battle”, Louis had to choose two young dancers (one girl and one boy) from eight. He had a difficult time choosing since he’s seen them grow up. There were a lot tears shed at the end of the try outs. Be sure to read in more detail at his Facebook account.

Also, while in Utah, Louis helped to host a morning show on ABC 4. He told the other hosts and viewers that he hopes to be on the new Season. He said he and the pros chosen (12 in all) for the show will find out in two weeks. They also talked on the current cast rumors (Snooki, Rob Kardashian, etc). Louis also mentions there will be a brand new set for Dancing With The Stars 13. He hasn’t seen it yet, but, he liked the last one because it was intimate. He said the producers wanted a “change”. You can watch the interview >>>>HERE.

Wow, so many changes for this upcoming Season. So, how do you feel about a new set? I think it sounds fun. We’ll see? I’m also so curious about “Ballroom Battle”. I keep wondering how they will fit it into the show since the show is jammed packed as it is?

The Latest in a Long List of “No!” for DWTS Season 13?? Rosanne Barr!

Hey all, back from Vacation!! Loook out. :-)

Anyway, according to People.com, Rosanne would love to do the show but has “bad hips”:

Will Roseanne Barr be the next celebrity to step into the ballroom on Dancing with the Stars?

“I really wanna do that show,” Barr, 58, tells xojane.com. “My hips are bad. I think I need a hip replacement. That’s why I can’t do that Dancing with the Stars s—.”

Dancing With The Stars Cast 13 Rumor Talk About Chynna Phillips, Leila Arcieri, Tommy Lee, And Kelly Preston

Today, Roadrunnerrecords.com is reporting Tommy Lee was approached by Dancing With The Stars to dance this upcoming Season. As you know, Tommy is the founding member of hard metal band Mötley Crüe and once married to model, actress, and former Dancing With The Stars contender Pamela Anderson. Below is how Tommy Lee reacted to the offer at twitter and rather quickly.;


ok! ready for the funniest shit EVER!!! Dancing with the Stars just offered me a spot on the show!! ive never hit the PASS button so quick
@MrTommyLand
Tommy Lee

So, I guess that would be a “no”! LOL

Rumors have surfaced again about Kelly Preston or is this just a recycled rumor? InTouch Weekly via an inside source is reporting Kelly Preston as wanting to dance on the show and a possible “shoo-in”. As readers to the site know, we’ve reported on this possibility several times. I tend not to believe it since she’s currently filming Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father with her husband John Travolta. But, hey, you never know? Maybe her part will be wrapped up by September?

Kelly Preston has been cheering on pal and fellow Scientologist Kirstie Alley from the sidelines on Dancing With the Stars, but it seems the new mom wants to get out of the audience and onto the stage!

According to an insider, Kelly sees what the show has done for Kirstie’s body and her popularity, so she was open when producers talked to her about joining the cast next season. “Kelly has auditioned and she is a shoo-in,” the insider says. “If she wants on the show, there’s a good chance it could happen.”

Also, I’ve noticed some twitter chat via The Insider saying Chynna Phillips might be in talks to dance on Dancing With The Stars. I’ve checked The Insider site for more information. There’s been nothing reported so far that I can find, but, be sure to watch The Insider tonight as they are going to talk about who’s in and who’s out for Dancing With The Stars 13. Maybe Chynna will be mentioned at that time? I like Chynna and I could see a pairing with Maks or Tony…or maybe even Derek? What do you think? FYI, Chynna is married to William Baldwin and is the daughter of The Mamas & the Papas’ band members John and Michelle Phillips and the half-sister of actress Mackenzie Phillips.

Lastly, how about former ‘Miss San Francisco’ and actress Leila Arcieri? Below is a take from Contact Music on this possibility. Be sure to watch a video at the link as well which makes you really wonder if this rumor isn’t a a strong one?

Leila Arcieri, the American actress and former ‘Miss San Francisco’, leaving Boa’s Steakhouse in West Hollywood, California. Wearing a sleek black dress with matching belt, Arcieri posed for photographers before answering questions concerning her upcoming projects.

Responding to rumours she will star in the upcoming series of ‘Dancing with the Stars’, the ‘Daddy Day Care’ actress said, “Well, there’s a couple of things I’m not talking about yet.Would I?…it would be funny, but sure”.

I like the thought of Leila being on the show. She’d be perfect. I hope this rumor is true! What do you think? We look forward to your thoughts as always. ;)
