Did Dancing With The Stars Ask Former Miss Alabama To Dance In DWTS Season 16? (Rumor)

Is the former Miss Alabama, Katherine Webb, contemplating an offer from Dancing With The Stars? Today, the NY Post reported that Katherine was in New York last week being photographed for the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. She was also seen at an eatery and overheard saying that Dancing With The Stars offered her a spot on the show. More below and the link!

Webb was also overheard saying that she was offered a spot in the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” but did not say whether she would participate.

As Heidi said to me privately (and I agree with her), take this “with a huge grain of salt”.

Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the find.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

“45 Minutes Of Fame” With Dancing With The Stars Tristan MacManus

Dancing With The Stars pro Tristan MacManus has been in Florida this past week making appearances and giving dance lessons at the Fred Astaire Dance Studios in Florida. Lucky for us, PureDWTS reader Gail Conn and her friend Shannon have been going to the festivities. Here is Gail’s fun and magical report to us and a sweet picture of her and Tristan as well. THANK YOU GAIL!! Without further ado, below is Gail on her experience with our Irish Lucky Charm….

Northern Florida was very lucky recently to have a week-long visit by the talented, handsome and ever-so-charming Mr. Tristan MacManus of Dancing with the Stars. His dance card was full nearly every day, with long lists of happy local residents who had private lessons with him. As one lucky lady remarked about her private lesson in Panama City, it was the “Best 45 minutes ever!!!”

Following the crowded group lessons, fans lined up to have pictures taken and autographs signed by the dancing star, and young and old were turned on to the joys of dancing, some for the first time ever, by a master of dance who’s also quite a heart-throb on the smash hit tv series, a treat that might be expected in New York City or Los Angeles, but in the small resort cities of Northern Florida, it was a delightful treat indeed!

Despite the weather, the turnout was great, not only for private lessons but for group ones as well, in Panama City (Mon Tues Jan 14-15), Crestview (Wed Jan 16), and Pensacola (Thurs Fri Jan 17-18), where MacManus also hosted an “Open House” and treated a packed dancehall with a sexy exciting Rumba with a local female pro.

Not far away, in Gulf Shores, Alabama, MacManus will team up with Anna Trebunskaya, also of Dancing with the Stars fame, and two members of the tv-show “troupe”, Sasha Farber and Emma Slater, performing in the traveling Broadway-type dance show, “Ballroom with a Twist”, on Tuesday, January 22.

The studios’ Facebook sites are jam-packed with photographs of Mr. MacManus and his many lucky students, and the other talented professionals in the Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Panama City, Crestview, Pensacola, and Ft Walton Beach. And be sure to keep in touch with them, because this isn’t the first time the area has been so honored! Just last June, ballroom spectaculars were graced by Mr. MacManus, joined by quite a few others from the series: Tony Dovolani, Kym Johnson, Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff, and Peta Murgatroyd.

But don’t wait too long – these events fill up faster than you can say two-three-cha-cha-cha, which would sound a lot more charming if you had been there to hear the adorable Irish hottie Mr. MacManus calling out the beat to a roomful of budding ballroom aficionados. Read more..
