DWTS Season 13 Rumors Out of Control – Hulk Hogan says No?

Hollywood Life claims that Hulk Hogan has been on DWTS Producer’s list for a long time, but he keeps saying no – they also claim that their insiders also heard Tiffany, Queen Latifa and Snooki, backing up TMZ. Um, okay. :-)

According to our set insider, Hulk Hogan has been top on ABC’s list for some time, but he keeps saying, “NO!” Apparently, they’ve had discussions to ask his daughter, Brooke Hogan, instead, but they hope the 58-year-old pro wrestler eventually decides to do the show.

Not everyone in the cast is set in stone yet (except Rob Kardashian and Christina Milian), but time’s ticking down: ABC will announce the official cast during an episode of Bachelor Pad Aug. 29. Season 13 kicks off Sept 19, which is only a month away!

 

Yes, please, christina. :-)

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 – Tiffany Thiessen Says “No, I’m not.”

But she is a good dancer, she says. :-)  Apparently she saw twitter explode. Between Derek saying he’s coming back and the TMZ rumors, my tweetdeck is hosed.

Even though I'm a good dancer... I am NOT going on #DWTS. http://t.co/s7XdRP8
@TAThiessen
Tiffani Thiessen

Then Jason Priestly tries to talk her into it….

@ Come on Tiff! I'm not the only one who wants to see that... Who else?!?!

And Tiffany responds with a GREAT idea. :-)

Cheryl Burke Says They Start Training For Dancing With The Stars August 25th

KTLA in Los Angeles interviewed Cheryl Burke today! They ask her on Dancing With The Stars. She’s excited and mentions they start training on August 25th. She’s heard a lot of rumors like us, but, has no idea which celebrities will be dancing. After they talk of Dancing With The Stars a little, they talk and show clips of the make-over Cheryl is helping with on the upcoming TLC show “What Not To Wear” which premieres Aug. 16th. After they talk on the make-over, they talk of Dancing With The Stars again. Cheryl gets excited again and says they hear of who their partners are in two weeks. However, she says she won’t know officially if she’s returning until that time (she’s busted with this video. I think she’s doing it. Her excitement and references to dates says everything. What do you think?)

Derek Hough Says He Will Be Back For Dancing With The Stars 13

Derek Hough will be back for Season 13 of Dancing With The Stars! Derek told People.com “I will be back!” Derek also talked about his break away from the show and hopes he can live up to everyone’s expectations. More in a take below and at the link.

While casting for the new Dancing with the Stars season won’t be officially announced until Aug. 29, one person who will definitely be on the show is three-time champ Derek Hough.

“I will be back!” Hough tells PEOPLE. Following his third mirror-ball-winning season with Jennifer Grey last November, Hough took time off in the spring to shoot an independent dance movie Cobu 3D.

The time off gave the 26-year-old a chance to “push myself and introduce me to a career I’d love to do more. It was a fantastic experience.” The time off gave the 26-year-old a chance to “push myself and introduce me to a career I’d love to do more. It was a fantastic experience.”

The break also gave Hough a greater appreciation for the show that made him a fan favorite.

“When we’re doing the show we’re in the bubble and we get into the stress and the drama and all of the behind the scenes stuff,” Hough says. “It was good for me to take a season off and see what he audience sees. It gave me a new boost and inspiration to want to do some great things.”

Also, the new picture above is of Derek at UTA in Beverly Hills, CA.! Is he not gorgeous or what?!!! He reminds me of James Dean. I picked this up at Heidi’s site Pure Derek Hough via Eyeprime.net. You can see another pic and a link to more similar to it at the link. Heidi also has some ‘must read’ articles up on the possibility of seeing Derek getting a role in the “Dirty Dancing” remake. Remember not to believe all the tabloids. They have Derek begging Kenny Ortega for the part as if he’s desperate for the role and more. So, until you read something from a credible source, don’t believe anything. Anyway, be sure to bookmark and frequently check Pure Derek Hough for all things Derek and here’s to seeing Derek on Dancing With The Stars Season 13! :D

DWTS Season Cast 13 Rumors Kristin Cavallari To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Access Hollywood is reporting Kristin Cavallari has been offered a contract to dance on Dancing With The Stars and that she plans to sign it. More below…

A source tells Access Hollywood exclusively that Kristin Cavallari has been offered a contract to be a contestant on Season 13 of “Dancing with the Stars.”

The 24-year-old blonde beauty plans to sign on for the new season, the source added.

This would mark the second reality star from “The Hills” to show off their fancy footwork in the ballroom. Kristin’s former co-star, Audrina Patridge, appeared on Season 11, where she was paired with pro dancer Tony Dovolani, and placed seventh in the competition.

So, what do you think if this news is true and who do you see Kristin paired with?

She’d be cool on the show. I’m excited! I can see her with Tony!!! I really hope Tony gets a good partner this Season. He deserves it. I can also see her with Maks or Derek!

Dmitry Chaplin Talks About Dancing With The Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, Fashion, And More

MF Magazine has a great new interview up with Dmitry Chaplin. He talks of his experiences on So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With The Stars and how much he has learned from each of them. Of Dancing With The Stars, he described it “as one of the most exciting and memorable experiences ever!” He hopes to come back as a “regular pro” for future seasons. All this and more below. Be sure to read the link for the full story for what he says on fashion and how he keeps in shape, etc.

Okay, let’s move back to your performances. Tell me about your days on Dancing With The Stars.
I really enjoy my experience on Dancing With The Stars because not only do I get to meet and dance with different celebrities, but I find the whole process from putting the choreography together and teaching your partner to dance, picking the music, costumes, and then performing live in front of 22 million people every night as one of the most exciting and memorable experiences ever! This show has made an incredible impact on people around the world and changed the industry completely! I received some very touching emails from people around the world telling me how watching us dance has made a huge impact on their lives and that dancing has given them a new hope and inspiration!

Wow, that’s awesome. Ya think any more seasons on the horizon for you after this past one then?
I hope that I get a chance to come back to the future seasons as one of the regular pros on the show and that I can continue to enjoy my dancing career as I’m doing it now!

Was your schedule strenuous and exhausting though?
There are a lot of responsibilities when you have a celebrity partner and it takes a lot of time to turn them into a dancer! I always try to find their best qualities and then try to showcase them on the dance floor. If they have a fun personality I try to have them do some exciting moves so they could really connect to the dance. If they have good lines like Petra for example, I definitely try to give them some lyrical moments that will make us stand out! In reality it takes some time to learn about your partner and make them trust you, so rehearsal hours can be very long…

How did you balance your personal life and other obligations during that time?
I pretty much don’t have any time for my personal life when I’m on the season. The schedule is so packed that I would literally leave my apartment at 8am and get home around 10pm and by that time you don’t feel like going out or doing anything else but going to bed. (He laughs.)
