Pure Dancing With The Stars Update On “LIVE! With Kelly” Shows!!

Did any of you tune in to see Carrie Ann Inaba on LIVE! With Kelly yesterday? She didn’t mention anything on Dancing With The Stars’ new season, but, she was a kick to watch. She and Kelly Ripa definitely have that magic it takes to co-host together in my opinion. Carson Kressley did a segment with the wedding rehearsal dinner which was good too. Carrie Ann raved on his “Moves Like Jagger” dance from last season. She also said (joked?) she’d love to see him back to do the show again a second time and he agreed. Lots more below and at the LIVE! With Kelly official site.

Don’t forget to tune into Friday’s show as we’ll get to see the wedding couple dance and more of Derek Hough teaching them in some pre-filmed footage hopefully. Also, watch this facebook page closely, they might post some “behind the scenes” pictures and video footage.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Addresses Rumors On Whether He’s Dancing On DWTS14

ET has a new article up via ET Canada with Maks addressing the rumors on whether he’s dancing or not on Dancing With The Stars Season 14. He says he hasn’t been called to do the show yet, but, wouldn’t tell us if he does get one. He reveals a little on the cast too. More below and be sure to read the link for the full article.

Dancing with the Stars bad boy Maksim Chmerkovskiy revealed in a new interview that he hasn’t yet been asked to return for the next season of the hit ABC dancing competition.

Two-time runner-up Maks, one of the show’s most popular dance instructors, told ET Canada, “I still don’t know if I’m on the show.”

He teased that “everyone’s going to be really short” this season, adding that based on the short stature of the contestants and his reported 6’2″ height, “It’s not going to be a good pairing.”

ET Canada asked when he expects to get a call back to be on the show, and Maks replied, “I would still not tell you if I did but I’m not lying to you. I didn’t get the call yet.”

Adding and Special note: According to PureDWTS reader Evaine, the ET Canada interview was done back on Friday, February 17th when Maks and Val were in Montreal for a dance, meet, and greet event.

Giuliana Rancic Denies Rumors Of Dancing On Dancing With The Stars

In January, we reported on a possible rumor that E News reporter Giuliana Rancic might be dancing on Dancing With The Stars this season. Well, it doesn’t look like that will be happening. Below is more in a take from the Huffington Post.

She’s on the road to a complete recovery, and it doesn’t look like she’ll be slowing down any time soon. In fact, Rancic said she wishes she could do even more, but barring the addition of a few more hours in her day, there is little else she can pack in. She admitted she would love to appear on “Dancing With the Stars,” but denied rumors that she’s on the next season, saying she simply doesn’t have time right now.

“I wish I could do it,” she said. “It’s such a fun show but I literally can’t imagine taking those hours out of my day.”

Dancing With The Stars Season 14 Rumor: Pro Golfer Annika Sorenstam To Dance??

Today on the Golf Channels’ The Morning Drive, Swedish pro golfer Annika Sorenstam was interviewed. She expressed interest in dancing on Dancing With The Stars in the past and how she received a call to do the show. Here are some details below…

When asked about her interest in appearing on “Dancing With The Stars” after Tony Dovolani expressed his interest in having her on the show, Annika said that a year ago she received a call from the show to be involved and she turned down that offer because she was pregnant. Now that she is not pregnant, she said that she would be interested and also said that when she and her husband were dating, they took dance lessons. She would be interested in being involved but it will come down to whether or not the show wants to have her participate.

You can read the full article here.

As some of you might remember, @DWTSGossip tweeted about a female golfer dancing on the show at the beginning of the off season. Could this be her? These tweets are very interesting as well….


@ hope you saw my Tweet earlier…. Annika saying yes to Dancing with the Stars. @ must be on Cloud 9 #golfpartner

DWTS Season 14 Rumor Patrol – More on Sherri Shepherd

Well, we’ve been talking about this possiblilty for weeks now in a couple posts – has it finally happened?? These were Sherri’s late night tweets from last night:

Can’t say I’d be thrilled with this, although I like Sherri just fine as a person. I can’t forget that she was photographed at Dance with Me Soho and the photo was quickly taken down after it was posted on the net. Telling?

Could this also explain the confusion of Maks or Val?? She’s short enough that she would be better with Val, but perhaps she really wanted Maks??

Or maybe she’s talking about something else altogether – who can say? :-) It’s not about a baby though, she already pooh poohed that one.

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. :-)
