For anyone hoping Melissa Joan Hart might be dancing in the new all star season of Dancing With The Stars, sorry, it’s not going to happen. She’ll be having a baby soon and she says she didn’t have he best time when she danced before. She talked of how hard it is and it’s like a political campaign. More below from Access Hollywood….
It’s been a great day for news and rumors and here is more from Entertainment Weekly. They say Melissa Rycroft, Joey Fatone, and Pamela Anderson are “likely” to dance (Yay, I hope this is true and I especially love Pamela!). Look what they also report on Carson Kressley, Bristol Palin and Stacy Keibler. Be sure to read the full story at the link.
The industry whisperers have been quieter than usual this cycle, but we’re still hearing names of a few celebrities who are expected to return to the ballroom: Melissa Rycroft (Season 8), Joey Fatone (Season 4) and Pamela Anderson (Season 10) are likely to don sequins when the show resumes this fall.
Also, we hear Executive Producer Conrad Green is injecting a new twist to the casting process this year:
ABC will let fans pick a returning star. The network will announce the names of three former Dancing contestants (we’re hearing Carson Kressley is one of them) and let viewers vote on which celebrity gets the final spot on the show.
And what about Bristol Palin? With her Lifetime show bombing isn’t she ready to return to the reality TV big leagues? No intel there yet. Though we’re hearing that you shouldn’t expect another attention-getting Dancing alum, Stacy Keibler, to take a break from George Clooney to hit the dance floor anytime soon.
So, what do you think? Interesting that Carson may be one of the people we will be voting on!
Celebuzz has a new article up where dancing pro Maks Chmerkovskiy comments on the upcoming Dancing With The Stars All Star Season. He can’t wait to see who he gets for a partner. He also says there will be some new pros on the show this Season? WHA?? It’s true. Read some more details below.
“I can’t wait to see who I’m going to get. I’m going to have a great time… This is going to be the first time we don’t start from scratch but pick it up where you left off.”
What else can fans expect this upcoming season?
“We have some new pros, [as] some old pros won’t be coming back,” he coyly revealed.
“The advantage is going to be with the couple that was on a recent season… If you’re going to be paired with someone coming back from Season 2, he or she is probably going to have a bit of a harder time getting back into it than someone who was on the last season.”

New Pros?! Wow, I wonder who they will be? Henry, Sharna, Sasha?? Can’t wait for Maks to be back!!
Oh, I say he is so gorgeous! I think I just passed out watching Gilles talking about his new fashion line Axist in the video below. See if you do too? Oh yeah, and they ask him on whether he’s dancing on the All Star edition of Dancing With The Stars too. He’s American now, so, he is pleading the 5th. lol I say he’s doing the show. What do you think?
Thanks to PureDWTS reader Nathan for letting us know on this tweet!!! As he and Court notified us on this in the night (Thanks Court to you as well!), “it appears as though Maria has let something rather significant slip” or is this just “too convenient”? Like Court also said, “Would she (Maria) really let the cat out of the bag just days before the announcement? But then again, David Arquette did it, & it ended up being true.” OR could their reunion have something to do with a new Docuseries Maria just landed a part in which you can read about HERE (thanks to Lori for this news!)? More speculation and details in the comments section including Miss Heidi’s and John’s thoughts.
This is getting that more interesting, isn’t it?!! Two more days and counting until the cast announcement, Guys!
My opinion: I like Maria, but, I’m not really wanting a repeat from last season. I’d like to see Derek dance with someone else. Penny for your thoughts?
