Tommy Chong “Picked” to be on Dancing with the Stars Season 19?? Real or joke??

Or an attempt to start a real rumor? Who knows with Tommy Chong? :-)  But it’s from his facebook page.  So….is he kidding? Is he high? :-)  I didn’t look through all the comments but the 200 or so that I saw seemed to think it was for real. Who knows?

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. :-)

TMZ Reports Julianne Hough Returning To Judge DWTS, Maks Chmerkovskiy Upset Didn’t Get The Job

Who knows if this news is true or not? Though note how TMZ has been a good source for Dancing With The Stars pre-season rumors for several years. Read on for more….

Sources connected with the show tell us … they’ve made an offer to Julianne to become the 4th judge … the other 3 are coming back. We’re told the 2 sides are in negotiations and are expected to make the deal.

Julianne left the show years ago to pursue an acting and singing career, but it’s been rough going … particularly “Rock of Ages” and “Footloose.” We’re told her commitment to DWTS is only a couple of hours a week, so she’ll still pursue acting.

And there’s this … our sources say Maksim Chmerkovskiy wanted the judging gig and wanted it BADLY … and he’s really pissed he didn’t get it and has made it known to producers.

I hope this is true. I love Julianne and I’m an even BIGGER fan after the Move Live on Tour! I’m also glad the three regular judges will be back.

ETA: Heidi here…TMZ has updated the story and removed the bit about Maks. I think someone made a phone call – perhaps Maks will still get his shot at a guest judging moment. But maybe not. Who knows?

ETA2: “Sources” talk to E News on Julianne and if she’s coming on as a 4th judge. Apparently, she hasn’t signed on…yet. A rep for ABC won’t comment. More below and at this link.

DWTS Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, Sharna Burgess, Val Chmerkovskiy Talk On Dancing And More

If interested, be sure you see KITV. They have a fun interview up with Karina Smirnoff, Tony Dovolani, Sharna Burgess, and Valentin Chmerkovskiy. The Dancing With The Stars pros talk on Ballroom With A Twist and the importance of dancing. This is just part 1. KITV will air Part 2 later.

“All of us travel and do charity work constantly because dance bring smiles to people and that’s the best healing you could ever have,” said Dovolani.

“Dancing has always been a very healthy activity, no only physically, but for your mind and soul. You see people come out of the dance studio happy. Tired in a good way,” said Smirnoff. “So, this is one of the things we do during the show. We want the audience to get up and actually start moving with us because that gift, that passion for dancing is for all of us. We want to be able to share it with people that love the show and love ‘Ballroom With A Twist’ and, for us, it is the opportunity to do it.”
