DWTS 16 Wannabes And Dreamers – Perez Hilton, Bobby Bones, Barbara Evans, Deena Cortese

Is this guy for real? Being he’s a total unknown, Miss Heidi and I think this guy might be just messing with us…or dreaming about the possibility of dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Not sure which, but we kind of doubt TPTB are this desperate?

BobbyBones

Heidi: I think he’s yanking his followers’ chains, and that of anyone crazy enough to believe him. :-) Seriously, this dude is way less well known that the chick who was Miss Alabama that Brent Musburger has a crush on. Dude, please. I think you joke. I hope it’s a joke and not delusions of grandeur. :-)

Vogue: And then there is Deena Cortese who Heidi reported about earlier in a previous posting. She’s been campaigning relentlessly to the point it won’t go away. She’s even giving interviews trying to secure a spot. Here is a take from a new interview with MTV. Watch out Mark Ballas! Deena has her sights on YOU! 8O

What advantages would you have in the competition?
I’m small, so they could, like, throw me all over the place, you know? I could do tricks, I feel.

Jersey has their own lifestyle and type of dancing. We just have moves, and we have attitude, too, so I feel like I could put a little attitude into the classical stuff, and just show them what Jersey’s all about. I would bring life and excitement, and I’m bubbly. I think it would be different to have a meatball on set, you know?

Who would your ideal partner be and why?
I feel like me and Mark (Ballas) would probably be good, because he’s short, and he has, like, that Italian look. I can’t have someone that’s super tall.

Heidi: This girl has got to stop!! I can’t see legit rumors on my tweetdeck cuz of her (and her fans) continuous campaigning! Please, I beg you, STOP. Out of control. DWTS producers – you dudes better not reward begging. :-) As for Mark, his response was “I’m not THAT short!!” which made me LOL for real. ;-)

Vogue: Also, take a look at this tweet from yesterday made by someone named Barbara Evans of MTV. Be sure you check out her twitter when you get a chance….and here I thought I had spelling and typing issues? :)


I wanna be on DANCIN WIFF THA STAHS!!!!! #DWTS
@BabsEvansMTV
Barbara Evans

Heidi: I dunno, TPTB might find this sort of train wreck attractive. :-) You know how they are. She’d be tweeting about the show constantly, of course no one doing a DWTS twitter search would see it because she’d misspell the hashtag. :-)

Vogue: Last, but not least, PEREZ HILTON!! Last weekend, Perez made a video telling Dancing With The Stars to well …uuhhh, in nice words…. “to “stick it” since they turned him down to dance again. He even made a video about it which you can watch at this link. I think Perez just cut his own throat. If they were thinking of hiring him at some point in time, they won’t hire him for sure now. Also, what about his supposed insiders who have given him Dancing With The Stars rumors and scoops in the past? If I was them and after seeing the video, I’d never do so again.

Heidi: While I appreciate Perez’s new found sensitivity(ishness) – kuddos for trying – I still have to say that I don’t think he’s really a star. And I also think he’s not really got great sources any more. He almost always gets scooped by EVERYONE. Including us! But of everyone on this list, he’s the one I wouldn’t mind seeing – maybe we could see what the big deal is, why he has friends in H-wood. Tough luck on Derek though, dude. We all want him and we can’t have him. But I always knew you were hot for him. ;-) You showed it in much the same way as you’re currently showing your affection for DWTS. :-D

DWTS Season 16, Rumor OR Campaign? Shannon Bex

Well, this one is interesting and I have to thank our regular reader Nathan for getting giddy because that drew my attention to this little gem much sooner than otherwise. :-) So, is she tossing a hint to her fans? Or is she indulging in some wishful thinking? I don’t know her, so I have no clue. All I know is that she’s in Danity Kane and that Nathan loves her. ;-) Shannon’s web site reveals that she might be this season’s ringer, if she’s indeed on the show.  In fact, Wiki lists her as a singer and a “professional” dancer so, I dunno.  Of course, Mya was of that level, so…  The only other potential drawback is that she was on NBC’s reality show Fame – but since that is long over, it shouldn’t be a factor.

I can’t decide. That she retweeted two people leads me to think campaign…but the time is right for a rumor or two. Hell…nothing is going on so we need something to speculate on, if nothing else.  What do you guys think?? (Read from the bottom up, like on twitter)

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. :-)

The Rehearsal Start Date for DWTS Season 16 IS…

The week of February 25th, per Louis Van Amstel.

PureDWTS: A Poem-Ode to the Competition Dancers

PureDWTS reader Patricia sent us a cool poem to feature. She and her husband use to be dancers. They competed for 12 years. During that time, she wrote the following poem. It makes you think about dancing and how it’s not all glamour and roses. Read on to see what I mean….

Poem-Ode to the Competition Dancers

We used to love our dancing,
to get out on the floor,
Two-step, waltz and line dance
and maybe a little more.

But now that we’ve got coaches
and are trying to compete,
We’ve discovered that our dancing
just isn’t quite complete.

Lift up – press out – get those shoulders down.
Stretch that neck – spot that turn
or you’ll never get around.

Sometimes I feel like “gumby”.
How do we move that way.
But it will make us better dancers,
and look better so they say.

Then some say dance for pleasure,
some say to please the judges.
Use your space – dance for the crowd.
Help – I think I’m nauseous.

Well we’ve got to be better dancers
for all the time and money spent.
We’re pulling up – we’re pussing down –
were styping to the hilt.

But woops with this styling,
we forgot our best routine.
So we’re on our own and winging it.
Lord, I hope he still can lead.

THANKS Patricia!!!

Henry Byalikov Answers Questions About Dancing With The Stars Season 16 And Much More

Kristyn Burtt interviewed Dancing With The Stars pro Henry Byalikov in a fans chat on Monday. Fans showed up to ask him some questions about his dancing career and Dancing With The Stars. He talks of how busy he’s been during the off season from choreographing for the new King Kong Musical to taking Fitness and Health photo shoots.

On Dancing With The Stars Season 16, Henry has no idea who is dancing, but, he’s hoping he will be picked as pro. Henry has been preparing for the position by thinking about the kinds of dances and how each dance will be a challenge and fun. Henry is also looking forward to who he would be partnered with and showing what he can do.

When asked on his celebrity dream partner, Henry picked Kristin Chenoweth. He thinks she would perfect for the show.

They also chat about Henry’s favorite dances, his favorite dancer, Strictly Ballroom, and lots more.

You can listen to this fun interview in full HERE. I just love this pro. He’s so appreciative of his fans. I liked when he said his fans are what drive him.
