Beth Chapman Receives A No From Dancing With The Stars

Sorry Beth Chapman Fans!! Today, Beth tweeted that she won’t be competing on Dancing With The Stars Season 14. She told her twitter followers that ABC told her on February 2nd that they had seen the campaign posts, but, they had already sent out their offers and she won’t fit into the cast this season. Beth also questions that the official Dancing With The Site Fan Casting Wish List is just a “gimmick” which our Miss Heidi has been telling us for quite some time. Be sure to read the link in full in the first tweet below to read Beth’s exact thoughts. It’s also quoted after the tweet.

To make you think you have a say sorry guys I appreciate all your efforts

“I have seen the rumors! Unfortunately I dont think she fits into the cast for this season. I have already made all my offers. But if anything changes I will let you know.”

Unfortunately, the same thing happened last season as well…


Sad!!! So many fans go to an extreme effort to campaign!!

Heidi’s Note: I also noted previously that the invitation to tell them (DWTS) who you would cast is worded in such a way that people were likely mis-reading it.  Possibly intentionally on ABC’s part?  You be the judge. Here’s the blurbs from abc.com:

Cast the new season of Dancing with the Stars!

Dancing with the Stars Season 14 is right around the corner. What are your thoughts for casting the next season? Who is your ideal cast? Which athletes, movie or television stars, singers or other celebrities would you pick?

Now, the title is VERY misleading, but once you read the blurb underneath, it makes it seem more like a discussion topic more than an actual voting apparatus…which is how so many people seem to be viewing it.  I’ve been complaining for a couple seasons now that I thought that DWTS was paying no attention whatsoever to that message board, that it was designed to get traffic to the site, period.  Parsing the word selection…”thoughts” is what sticks out at me. They don’t ask for you to “vote” and they never imply that they will actually pick someone who gets a lot of votes. They just want your opinion. They never said they would take it. :-)

DWTS Pros Tony Dovolani And Chelsie Hightower Give Valentine Dance Lessons

Today, Dancing With The Stars’ Tony Dovolani and Chelsie Hightower were guests on the Rachael Ray Show. I didn’t get to watch, but, several fans have tweeted Tony for how much they enjoyed it. The two pros gave a dancing lesson to Rachael and Jerry O’Connell in a “Valentine’s Day Significant Other” segment. You can see a little preview here. If anyone sees or has more video coverage, be sure to let us know in the comment section of this post. I love Chelsie’s shoes. :)

By the way, this isn’t the first time Tony was a guest on Rachael’s show. Remember when he danced with Rachael after Dancing With The Stars costume designer Randall Christensen designed her a dress? See this link to remember back.

Adding: Thanks to PureDWTS reader Maddy and She Luvs Chelsie You Tube, below is the segment in full;

“Dancing With the Stars Live” At The Tropicana In Las Vegas Gets Green Light

A couple of months ago, we reported how there were plans are to bring a live version of Dancing With the Stars to the Tropicana in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to Robin Leach of Las Vegas Weekly, the idea was cancelled and now it’s getting the “green light” again.

The new Las Vegas dance show will supposedly feature a combination of dance professionals and Hollywood stars who have won and also who have come up short in their attempts to win the mirror-ball trophy.

One of the rumored contenders to dance is Dancing With The Stars Season 9 champ Donny Osmond.

The audience members at the Tropicana will also be invited to participate in an “interactive challenge” during the shows.

You can read more details in our previous posting as well as in a new article at the Las Vegas Weekly which talks about a male pro from Dancing With The Stars helping to choreograph the show and stage in the past planning stages. Who do you think that might be? Louis?

Personal note: I really hope this comes true. I’m planning a trip to Vegas in the Fall and I would love to see this show if it were to happen!! How about you?

DWTS14 Hmmm?: Lacey Schwimmer Strikes Dance Pose With Perez Hilton

*one eye up* Pictured in a dance pose above is Dancing With The Stars’ Lacey Schwimmer with tabloid reporter Perez Hilton. Lacey attended his “Rock The Vote” Broken Heart Ball Saturday night in Las Vegas. You can read more on the party and see more pictures at Haute Living.

Note too that Perez has campaigned to be on Dancing With The Stars at his twitter in the past and recently in a new Dancing With The Stars “potential” cast column. Could this only be the beginning for these two? Ok, let’s pretend I didn’t say that. 8O ;)

Heidi’s Note: He wishes. I hope not, seeing as how he’s even less a celebrity than, say, Elisabetta Canalis. Next they’ll be casting Henry the Paparazzi.

Dancing With The Stars Season 14 Rumor: Gavin DeGraw To Dance??

Hollywood Reporter has been a fairly good source for Dancing With The Stars cast rumors in the past. Could this be the case this time? You be the judge!! Be sure to read the link for the full story. A take and video below for what One Republic’s Ryan Tedder said about his good friend Gavin DeGraw dancing on Dancing With The Stars….

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, the OneRepublic frontman and multiple nominee let loose that his good pal DeGraw is pondering a campaign for ABC’s coveted mirror ball trophy.

“Gavin DeGraw is doing Dancing With the Stars, I heard,” Tedder spilled on the red carpet. The duo most recently collaborated on DeGraw’s “Not Over You” and “Sweeter,” and both have been known to gush about each other’s talents to the press — a true bromance.

“He’s amazing. He’s one of my favorite male singers alive,” Tedder added.

Watch the video above to hear his full quote, though it is not clear whether DeGraw has officially inked a deal with ABC to appear on the series. A representative for the network did not immediately return THR’s request for comment.

What do you think? I love the idea and I can see him with any of the female dancers!!
