DWTS Season 13 Cast Rumors Dwyane Wade To Dance?

This is kind of random so not sure how much credence this mention should receive (and Hines most likely doesn’t know more than anyone else?), but, in a new radio interview with WCNN in Atlanta, Hines Ward mentions hearing rumors that LA Laker, Ron Artest, and Miami Heat player, Dwyane Wade, are dancing on Dancing With The Stars this season. He doesn’t mention much except this…

“I don’t know, but I did hear rumors and his name did come up. I also heard Ron Artest too.”

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page at this link, you can hear the audio interview in full where Hines mentions Ron Artest and Dwyane Wade. I just checked Dwyane’s twitter. There is a tweet where he mentions taking dance lessons recently. Apparently, they are for a new movie he’s starring in called ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’.


Every1 follow my new dance teacher he is amazing. “@: @ great work today!! Tyce”
@DwyaneWade
Dwyane Wade

As for Ron Artest, he recently said no unless he has changed his mind?

Special thanks to Carlos and Maddy for the heads up! Thanks to @ElmariL for helping with more info on the movie as well!!

Dancing With The Stars Cast 13 Rumors: One More Controversial Contestant?

Just a little quick update on the rumored celebrities to dance. E Online is reporting on the David Arquette, Chaz Bono, Rob Kardashian, and Elisabetta Canalis rumors today. However, nothing can be “confirmed”. A show rep told them. “We will unveil the cast this coming Monday night live during Bachelor Pad on ABC.” They were also told there is atleast one more controversial contestant and far more controversial than the names listed at the link. Here’s a take….

We are hearing rumblings that David Arquette and Chaz Bono have signed on; however, nothing can be confirmed at this point. A show rep tells us: “We will unveil the cast this coming Monday night live during Bachelor Pad on ABC.”

Rob Kardashian (brother of newlywed Kim) is also rumored to be a part of the cast.

And we first reported the rumor that George Clooney’s ex, Elisabetta Canalis would be competing for the disco ball trophy.

We are also told there is at least one more controversial contestant—far more controversial than the names listed above. Hmmm!

Will you be watching this season of Dancing with the Stars when it begins Sept. 13? For the record, we are in.

More controversial than Chaz or David? Who do you think it might be? Take a guess and let us know what you think in the comment section.

Ok, I’ll take a guess that it’s Ann Coulter! Ewww, but, I hope not! lol 8O

Dancing With The Stars Malibu Beach Party 2011 (Photos)

How about some fun in the sun? Yesterday, the Malibu beach came alive with a Dancing With The Stars party. Dancing With The Stars alumni such as Giles Marini, Melissa Rycroft, and Jennifer Grey showed up for the event as well as current cast members Cheryl Burke, Anna Trebunskaya, Lacey Schwimmer, Kym Johnson, Derek Hough, Tony Dovolani, and Maksim Chmerkovsky and more. Below are a few pictures of Derek, Cheryl, and Maks partying and living it up. There are lots more of where these pics came from at Imnotobssessed.com, Wire Image, and the Daily Mail. Looks like a HOT day with some HOT bodies! :)

DWTS13 Casting Rumors – The Typecasting of Season 13, Part I

It’s that time of year, again – time to take all the wacky rumors and all the wacky casting patterns we see from season to season and hypothesize who we might actually get to see :-) This year is interesting, in that we already definitely know one of the celebs, are fairly certain about two others, and have got definite suspicions about another two – almost takes a bit of fun out of the guessing, no? :-) But I’m sure there will be at least one celeb who’s name we haven’t heard – and at least one we’ve never heard of, too…thankfully, even unpredictability becomes predictable after awhile! But let’s get it on with it, shall we? Oh, and if you’re feeling nostalgic (and want to see how effective using these cast types as a template can be), check out the typecasting of season 10, season 11, and season 12 :-)

The Olympian

Previous examples: Kristi Yamaguchi, Shawn Johnson, Apolo Ohno, Natalie Coughlin, Misty May-Treanor, Maurice Greene, Louie Vito, Evan Lysacek

Advantages: The winningest of the 12 types, their obvious advantage is their athleticism – you won’t see these guys struggling with strength or endurance moves.  In addition, the same tireless work ethic that helped them medal in the Olympics will likely carry them through the toils of the competition. They also seem to be adored by the masses, as many are seen as “hero” figures – which translates into a formidable voting fanbase.

Disadvantages: For those specializing in sports that are less “artistic” (i.e. swimming, running, volleyball), it might be a bit hard to really get into the character of the dance and truly perform to the crowd.  Previously incurred injuries (or the fear of incurring an injury that might hinder their participation in subsequent competitions in their sport, a la Misty May-Treanor) may also slow them down & limit their mobility.

DWTS Season 13 Rumors – Kim Richards!

Heh. Courtney guessed a housewife…but perhaps from the wrong town??  :-)  From Celebbuzz:

Celebuzz has learned that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards will be on Dancing with the Stars this season.

A source tells us that she is confirmed and has been rehearsing in the studio. After a rough year, it looks like she’s on the road to a resurgence and recovery!

Kim, who stars on RHOBH with her sister Kyle Richards, is a former child star who appeared in numerous Disney films such as Escape to Witch Mountain. She also appeared on a slew of TV shows such as Dukes of Hazzard and The Love Boat.

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 13 Cast Rumor David Arquette To Dance With Kym Johnson?

Ok, so remember before reading this news that TMZ hasn’t been reliable lately and yet, you have to wonder if this isn’t true since they’ve seen these two together (David Arquette and Kym Johnson) at a rehearsal studio today. Hmmm?

David showed up to the rehearsal studio a few minutes ago, to meet his partner for the first time. We’re told he’s hooking up — professionally, in a dancing sort of way — with Kym Johnson.

Whoa, now this would be a good one!! :)

Henry Winkler To Dance On Dancing With The Stars 13? (Rumor)

Well, not sure what to make of these two tweets for now, but, two radio DJs are reporting Henry Winkler as a possible contender to dance on Dancing With The Stars. We mentioned Henry Winkler in July as possibly dancing. But, in a recent Hollywood Reporter article at the time, he said he’d never do the show and “not with someone else’s legs.” He said he might do it though if Ron Howard was his partner. LOL!! So, has Henry possibly changed his mind? Note however that Radio DJs aren’t exactly in a big LA market, but, this is so random that we felt like we had to mention it. Note too that the DJ from the second tweet works for a station that recently interviewed Mark Ballas.


Not final yet but Chaz Bono, Rob Kardashian, Kristin Cavallari, Tiffani Thiessen and Henry Winkler all rumored for the next season of DWTS

I really hope Henry does the show…if not now, someday? He’d be a gas!!!

Edit to add one more DJ who mentions Henry Winkler. This is the same DJ who mentioned Chaz Bono dancing as well;


@ and I hear THE FONZ Henry Winkler too wink wink!

DWTS Season 13 Rumors and Innuendo – Ryan O’Neal

So, apparently, Entertainment Tonight is saying that Ryan O’Neal has agreed to do the show.  I have yet to see this for myself, as ET doesn’t air here until later, for some crazy reason. Ordinarily I would wait until I could get video from ET and post, but then I saw this tweet from a producer/journalist on Twitter and I gave up and decided to post it with the word “innuendo” tacked on just in case:

DWTS: There's word around TINSELTOWN that RYAN O'NEAL has been asked to be a contestant & he agreed
@MoviesNews
Ellis A. Cohen

For those of you not in the know, Ryan is an Academy Award nominated actor (Love Story) and is what could be considered old Hollywood royalty. He was involved with Farrah Fawcett for many, many years, is the father of Tatum O’Neal, who was also on DWTS!!

OKAY! Timing is everything.  They just said on ET that Ryan is going to be on the show. They qualified this by saying that DWTS producers won’t confirm, but this is what they hear. They also said he had knee surgery a few months ago.

Ryan today:

Dancing With The Stars Brooke Burke Promotes Skechers In Vegas And Writes On Her Secret Wedding

Yesterday, Brooke Burke helped to promote the Skechers shoe line at a booth at the MAGIC Fashion Trade Show in Las Vegas. You can see some more fun pictures of her like the one above at Vegas News.

Brooke has recently written all about her wedding and honeymoon in the French West Indies at her blog. I thought the title “My Secret Wedding – All The Details From My Heart” was a cool one and very fitting. More below in a take. You can read the rest of her story at the link as well as viewing more pictures and a drawing of her wedding dress.

From the moment that you step foot onto the island of St. Barts, every day is a celebration. But this vacation was the setting for an 18 year long dream to come true.

On the morning of August 8th, we left as a family to return to St. Barts (my favorite destination in the world). Only this time, we were on a secret mission, with beautiful intentions and long-awaited dreams.

My Mark Zunino wedding dress was carefully stuffed and wrapped in a large suitcase, diamond Jimmy Choos lay beside it in a felt bag. Our Peter Marco wedding bands were placed in my carry-on, and four white hydrangeas were discreetly accompanying us to the perfect secret rendezvous.

We told no one – no friends, not even our mothers. This is going to sound so Hollywood, but I did have to call in the industry troops – my stylist, jeweler & publicist to manage the news. Our wedding day was carefully thought-out, planned in spontaneous record time and…
