DWTS Season 17 Rumor: More On Gabby Douglas, Finalizing A Deal??

Another rumor….and this time more on Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas! As you might remember, we posted on Gabby as a “watch out” last week. Now @GymCastic at twitter is reporting they have “multiple sources” who are “confirming that Gabby Douglas’s deal with DWTS is being finalized this week.” Not sure how true this is or how reliable they are (adding: though they sound kind of like “After Buzz”?)? As always, take ALL RUMORS with a grain of salt until the cast announcement next week. Thanks to @LaLaLexie22 for this find!!

There was a problem connecting to Twitter.

Rumor: NSync Member JC Chasez To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

And yet another rumor to add to all the others today! How about former NSync member JC Chasez to dance on Dancing With The Stars? According to the Daily Mail, he’s lined up to dance in the new season.

I would love this if true. Did any of you see him dancing in the NSync reunion with Justin Timberlake at the VMAS this past Sunday night? They brought the house down. I remember thinking how much JC stood out from the rest too.

Karina Smirnoff Heads Up October Fitness RX Cover With 10 Page Spread Inside

Wow, what an amazing new cover for Fitness RX with Dancing With The Stars Karina Smirnoff!! US Weekly has an exclusive of the cover. Tghey are also reporting that the issue will have a 10 page spread. Below is a sneak peek and be sure you visit the link for more.

Known for her dancing prowess on the ABC competition, the Ukranian native explained in the 10-page feature why she stuck to ballroom dancing when first starting out. “I think it’s the combination of heart and fitness and show biz, the glitz and glamour of the ballroom dancing world— I think all of that made me want to fall in love with it,” she said.

As it turns out, Smirnoff, 35, originally had a much different career path in mind: she planned to become a lawyer! “Growing up, I was nervous because there are so many dancers and there are only a few dancers who really make a career out of it. So I thought I was going to dance until I became an attorney,” she added. “But if there’s one lesson I learned, it’s if you dance with your heart, and you give it 100 percent every time without holding anything back, good things are going to come to you and good things are going to happen.”

ADDING: Karina is holding a contest along with the issue of this magazine. To read and take part in it, see this facebook link. Thanks to Jim for the heads up!

Add Valerie Harper, Corbin Bleu, Lea Remini, Elizabeth Berkley, And Keyshawn Johnson To The DWTS Season 17 Rumor Mill

What a big rumor day and finally finally something from TMZ which has been a good source for Dancing With The Stars rumors in the past (even still, take all rumors with a grain of salt until the Dancing With The Stars cast announcement). Adding to the rumors we reported earlier today of Christina Milian, Snooki, and Amber Riley, add Lea Remini, Elizabeth Berkley, and Keyshawn Johnson to the rumor mill.

Remini filed a missing persons report regarding Shelly’s disappearance in July, demanding answers, and the Church was NOT pleased … ripping the actress for her wanton betrayal.

FYI, police claim they made contact with Shelly in the wake of Remini’s report and determined Remini’s concerns were “unfounded.” Eerie.

In addition to Remini and Snooki, our sources say Elizabeth Berkley, Amber Riley from “Glee,” Christina Milian, and Keyshawn Johnson will also be on the show.

More at TMZ.

Too fun. Oh, how I’d love it if it’s true about Elizabeth Berkley! Wow!!

UPDATE: TMZ is also reporting that Valerie Harper is dancing as well and she and her partner Tristan have been practicing for two days. Wow, I love her too and I admire her so much for taking on dancing despite her cancer scare.

Doctors gave her roughly until June to live … but it’s already August, and we’ve learned she’s doing so well she is set to appear on the upcoming season of “Dancing,” an extremely physically-demanding reality show.

We’re told Valerie and her partner Tristan have already been practicing for two days, and she’s surprisingly good. Our sources say she’s completely self-sufficient and doesn’t need any special assistance … at least so far.

UPDATE2: And now we’re hearing that Corbin Blue is dancing as well. What an exciting rumor day!!

UPDATE3: Note that Keyshawn Johnson has been removed from the first TMZ link.

Rumor: Glee’s Amber Riley To Dance In Dancing With The Stars Season 17?

Ok, another rumor Dancing Kings and Dancing Queens! This time from Just Jared via Wet Paint. Apparently, Glee’s Amber Riley might be dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. HERE is new instragram Amber made just hours ago that includes this passage.

“HUGE announcement next week hehehehehe! Can’t wait to share y’all”

What do you think if true and who do you see her dancing with? I have loved her on Glee in the past…especially IN THIS. I’m all for it if true! And here she is helping to sing Abba’s “Dancing Queen”. lol

DWTS Season 17: Rumor Video And Snooki, Jack Osbourne, Christina Milian To Dance?

Radar Online via Star Magazine is reporting Snooki, Jack Osbourne, and Christina Milian as “likely” contestants to be dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Keep in mind while reading this that this source hasn’t always been reliable in the past. Also note that both Snooki and Christina Milian have been rumored to dance in seasons past.

Jack is “excited for the journey,” an insider tells the magazine. “He’s been through a rough time with his multiple sclerosis diagnosis, and is anxious to prove that nothing can stop him.”

And Christina “just couldn’t say no — it’s such a big opportunity for her,” the source says of The Voice‘s social media correspondent.

“She’s concerned about juggling both shows, but she’s a tough girl and will work it out.”

Meanwhile, new mom Snooki has been vocal about wanting to be on Dancing With The Stars, revealing last March, “I feel like I’m a good dancer. I’ve got this new body. I would do it in a heartbeat!”

What do you think if true? I say YES to Jack and Christina, but, please NO to Snooki! More at Radar Online and thanks to @DWTSgossip for find.

Also, Dee @upclose22 found this little Hollywood Scoop segment on the circulating rumors we’ve heard before. Like many of you, I can’t get use to the idea of Farrah and Tan Mom dancing. HELP!! cryingsmilie lol Thanks Dee!

Big Campaign For Towanda Braxton To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

News is slow this morning, so, we thought we’d let you know of another celebrity who very much wants to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Check out Towanda Braxton’s twitter page when you get a moment. It’s filled with her and RTs from her fans trying to get her on Dancing With The Stars. Her sister Toni is also campaigning for her at her twitter page. Though I’m not sure if Towanda is free enough this season since the Braxton’s have their own reality show on the WE channel and they might be filming new episodes? Note that Towanda has also been making appearances on Tony’s tour and their last night to tour is Aug. 31st. Anyway, keep a watch out for Towanda Jackson and if not this season, maybe the next? Towanda has some moves too! What do you think?

Farrah Abraham Addresses Rumors About Dancing In Dancing With The Stars Season 17

Penny for your thoughts! EnStarz talked with rumored contestant and Teen Mom Farrah Abraham yesterday at an Intouch party. They asked her about Dancing With The Stars and here is how she addressed the rumors that she might be dancing…

Farrah Abraham on Sunday addressed speculation that she will join the cast of Dancing with the Stars for season 17 and hinted that her place in the show’s lineup – if any – will be announced very soon.

The former Teen Mom star was all smiles when answering a question about rumors that she will join the ABC dancing competition. She told Enstars on Sunday at the InTouch afterparty for the VMAs that though she is not “not commenting on that one right now,” fans will know if she is part of the cast this week. She did not specify a day but simply said, “You’ll find out this week.”

Abraham made it clear that the reveal will be made at the end of August, though the official cast is usually unveiled early September on Good Morning America. Previous reports noted that the Backdoor Teen Mom star was approached by the show’s executives about joining the DWTS cast.

More at EnStarz.

I don’t know what to make of this? 8O Let us know what you think!!
