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.

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 .

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!!!
