DWTS Season 16 Rumors: Victor Ortiz, Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian, and Mama June?

Not sure how true this is, but, today, the New York Daily News is reporting in their “Confidential” gossip column that boxer Victor Ortiz has been signed to do Dancing With The Stars Season 16. Their insider also said ABC is interested in Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian and Honey Boo Boo’s mother, Mama June. More below….

Ortiz is ready to rumba
Boxer Victor Ortiz is going from seeing stars to dancing with them. Sources tells us the 26-year-old fighter who was knocked out when he dropped his guard against Floyd Mayweather in 2011 has signed on for the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars.” Our insider also says that ABC is interested in adding Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian and Honey Boo Boo’s recently slimmed down mother, Mama June, to the new cast.

What do you think? I don’t mind Victor or Emily, but, please NO to Kourtney or Honey Boo Boo’s mother!! How is she a star?

Let’s get Miss Heidi’s perspective and be sure to let us know your thoughts too.

Heidi: Sounds to me like Victor is the only real rumor in this bunch and the rest are just an after thought. In fact, Victor might be the first actual rumor of the season. Everything prior to this has been campaigns and wishful thinking on the part of some “stars”.  As for the other names? I think the Daily News just threw those in there to round out their article. I think they heard ONE name and asked for some other speculation of their source.  BTW, I thought we had rumored this guy before…but that was Tito Ortiz of the UFC.  I’ve had enough of the Kardashians to last a lifetime and Honey Boo Boo’s mom?? Heaven help us, the dumbing down of America continues. That goes for all the K women too, actually.

Dancing With The Stars Tristan MacManus, Chelsie Hightower, Dmitry Chaplin Tango And More

Isn’t it fun to see Dancing With The Stars Tristan MacManus and Chelsie Hightower again? Above the two danced a Tango at Ohio State University at the end of January. Let’s hope this means Tristan’s injury is healing? They’ve also been dancing in Ballroom With A Twist along with Dmitry Chaplin and three members of the troupe. You can view some fun takes of them all at Ballroom With A Twist Facebook.

And speaking of Tristan, Dublin Downs has posted another interview with him where he talks of choreograping and more. You can watch it here.

DWTS Kym Johnson Talks Of Hanging Up Her Dance Shoes In America

This is sad! I know we saw this coming, but, I (like so many of you) didn’t want to believe it and hoped (and I am still hoping …being she still is contracted for two more seasons!) that her time on Dancing With The Stars isn’t over…atleast not quite yet. Below Kym Johnson comments on hanging up her dance shoes in America and more….

“It’d be great to finish that up (Dancing With The Stars),” Johnson told AAP.

“I’m doing this (Celebrity Apprentice) because it’s nice to be home and I’m thinking about hanging up the dance shoes.

“I’d love to do other things.

“I want to be able to go between Australia and the States a little bit more because I really miss my family.”

While she wants to spend more time in Australia, Johnson has just bought a home in the US, not too far from the CBS studios where Dancing With The Stars is taped.

She has also written a children’s dancing book and has released fitness DVDs.

“I’m doing a lot of other things over there and keeping busy.
