DWTS Season 17 Watchout: Jamie Lee Curtis And Kenny Rogers??

This just keeps getting more fascinating. Apparently, Derek and Cheryl’s publicist is now following Jamie Lee Curtis and Kenny Rogers. As far as we know, this publicist is not a publicist to anyone else on the show. So, …Question for you all: is she just randomly following people to “follow” them or is there some relation to her recent follows of rumored celebs Jack Osbourne and Amber Riley? Note: Brooke Burke Charvet mentioned Jamie Lee in a recent interview as wanting her to dance and Jamie has also been rumored to dance this season in the recent yogurt spokes person rumor. As for Kenny, he currently has a new album to promote that’s coming out soon. Let’s see what Miss Heidi thinks and you let us know too. Thanks to Linz for watching Derek’s publicist closely for us.

Heidi: Well, I tend to think she’s just following people to follow people. But the weird thing is is that the people she’s recently followed have all been rumored as contestants on the show. At one point or another. So, Did she meet Kenny and Jamie when she was at the photo shoot or rehearsals for the partners with her clients? Or is she following rumored people to throw us off the track? That’s another thing I mentioned to Vogue – is she really crazy enough to follow Derek and Cheryl’s partners before the announcement has been made? At this point she has to know people are watching. I think it’s entirely possible that we’re paying way too much attention publicists at this point. :-) I guess we find out in a few days!

A Report On Dancing With The Stars Rumored Contestant Valerie Harper’s Health Condition

Being Valerie Harper is a strong rumored contender to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 17 and being this is such an inspirational story anyway, below is a recent report on her and her health condition that took place on Today with Merideth Vieira this past Thursday! I just love how Valerie is so positive and currently defying the odds with her brain cancer. Sure, worst conditions could strike at any time and she might be buying time, but, I think her doctor is right for how he said “life is about buying time” and for us all. There is a cool spread on Valerie and this story at the Daily Mail as well. Just a heads up and for those interested: there is going to more to this report and interview with Valerie and Merideth Vieira on September 19th.

Oh, this is fun! Entertainment Tonight interviewed Karina Smirnoff and Cheryl Burke in Las Vegas at the POM Juice Blends Event! They give even more hints on their new Dancing With The Stars partners…including their names (but, I can’t tell if they are serious on their names or not? Hilarious). They both rave how great the cast is and how they never had to “google” anyone this time. Interesting. More below. Also, if you haven’t seen our previous posting with Karina and Cheryl from this event, you can do so at this link.

UPDATE: Take a look below at who Karina is now following….and it’s not a person named “Ryan”. Thanks to reader Jen for the heads up.

Indy Champ Tony Kanaan Hasn’t Received A Call From DWTS, But, Still Might?

Awww, this will make Court sad. According to USA Today, Indy champ Tony Kanaan still hasn’t received a call to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 17, and yet, it’s still possible he could get a call. Below is more….

“I might be getting a call, but I won’t know until right before they announce it,” Kanaan told USA TODAY Sports on Friday during a break in preparation for Sunday’s Grand Prix of Baltimore. “It’s so confidential. They want to keep the announcement a secret. They don’t like leaks, so I really don’t know.”

Kanaan said he won’t be disappointed if he doesn’t make the cut.

“To be honest, I won’t be unhappy if it doesn’t happen,” Kanaan said. “With all the things we have going on, I cannot afford to take off for however many weeks it would take. If they call me, I’ll do it, but right now it’s a busy time of my life.”

Sad, as I hoping he would dance too. Then again, maybe he might? All eyes on Wednesday, All, and be sure to read the full article at USA Today.

Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke And Karina Smirnoff Help To Launch ‘POM Juice Blends’

Dancing With The Stars pros Cheryl Burke and Karina Smirnoff helped to celebrate and launch ‘POM Juice Blends’ at the Encore Beach Club at The Wynn in Las Vegas, Nevada yesterday. According to Herald Online, “The dancers led the record-breaking stunt as revelers kept a beach ball in the air for 125 consecutive passes without letting the ball touch the ground.” Awesome awesome! And they both looked incredible too!! Check out a slew of pictures at Getty Images.

DWTS Season 17 Watchouts: Britney Spears And Lindsay Lohan??

Just a few more Dancing With The Stars rumors and watchouts to add…though mark these in the highly “skeptical” department.

The first is Britney Spears!! Today she tweeted that she was rehearsing for something “top secret” next week. The tweet reads as follows….

Taking a quick break to say hi to all my tweeps :) Rehearsing for something top secret happening next week… #WERK

It’s most likely something music related (a new single or a Las Vegas gig?) in my opinion, but, her official site raises a even more eyebrows being there is a countdown to a date that is the same as the premiere of Dancing With The Stars. So coincidental.

Secondly, there is speculation as to why Val Chmerkovskiy is now following Lindsay Lohan at his twitter? As you know, Lindsay has been rumored for several seasons. She’s got her life together now and she’s never looked better. So, is it possible she’s dancing? Though this past week, Lindsay has been seen in New York City instead of Los Angeles. So, not sure how true this could be? But, could it be a possibility for next season like we reported in this post recently?

Heidi, penny for your thoughts!!

Heidi: Yeaaahhhh….I’ve seen the Britney one is starting to spread over the Internet, and Vogue isn’t the only one to ask me about it. I just can’t believe this show would be able to get either of these women. It kinda boggles the mind. I suppose Lindsay is currently the more needy of career rehab at the moment, but still. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I’m highly skeptical. Highly.

DWTS17 Why Some Of The Rumored Contestants Might Be Dancing, Predictions, And More

Hey All! Hollywood Life has an article up surrounding the new rumors of who is dancing this season. It mentions who they think is dancing and some of the “reasons” why. Here is quote from one of their “inside” sources.

Amber Riley is doing the show to lose weight, dedicate her season to Cory Monteith and start fresh now that she’s no longer on Glee. This was the next logical move in her eyes. Christina Milian is no longer on The Voice and she’s looking to release more music in the near future, so she wants this to be the stepping stone. Elizabeth is a tremendous dancer and might be the first Saved By The Bell alum to win the show. And if she is paired with Derek [Hough] or Mark [Ballas], [her winning] could be automatic.

More at Hollywood Life including possible pairings and even a prediction by producers of Christina and Elizabeth being in the finals.

I never know what to believe when it comes to “inside sources”, but, it’s fun to speculate none the less. I also have a hard time believing that producers have already predicted who will be in the finals. Oh well.
