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.

Lindsay Lohan Turns Down ‘Lucrative Offer’ From Dancing with the Stars

If true, I’m sad. I’d love to see Lindsay Lohan dance and a what a cool way to show another side to herself than what tabloids report!!! I love her as an actress and nothing will change that. Below is more from TMZ for how Lindsay turned down a huge offer from Dancing With The Stars!!

Lindsay Lohan’s ego might be her downfall — because TMZ has learned, she just shut down a lucrative offer to do “Dancing with the Stars” … because she doesn’t want to do reality TV.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us, the actress was made several offers to join the DWTS cast this upcoming season — offers that maxed out at $550,000.

But Lindsay — who still owes hundreds of thousands in back taxes — shut them down, telling friends she’d never consider doing reality TV … she wants to stick to films.

You can read more at TMZ. What do you think? You can tell us. :D

Dina Lohan Tells Mario Lopez She’d Like To Dance on Dancing With The Stars

During a new interview with Mario Lopez of Extra, Dina Lohan tells him she’d like to dance on Dancing With The Stars. She also tells Mario who she’d like to dance with. Wanna guess?? ……brace yourselves…..MAKS!! Regardless of how strict Maks is, that’s what she likes. For the part on Dancing With The Stars and Maks, see the 1:40 mark…

This isn’t the first season Dina has said she’d like to dance. She was overheard saying the same in Season 13 and it was said she was also in talks with producers.

So, what do you think if this were to happen this time? If I can’t have Lindsay, I’d take Dina and watching her dance with Maks would be fun I think.

Could Dina Lohan Be In Talks To Dance On Dancing With The Stars 13?

Could Dina Lohan be in talks to dance on Dancing With The Stars? According to Page Six of the New York Post, Lindsay Lohan’s mom was overheard talking about her plans to appear on the show at a party this weekend…

Dina Lohan says she’s in talks to appear on “Dancing With the Stars.” On Sunday, Lindsay Lohan’s mom was overheard talking about her plans to appear on the ABC show as she celebrated her daughter’s birthday at a private house in Water Mill dubbed the Ciroc Cabana Club. Lindsay had been expected to join, but she stayed in LA to remain low-key after completing her house arrest.

This isn’t the first time Dina has been rumored to dance. Rumors surfaced last year on this possibility as well when Lindsay suggested to producers that her mother dance on the show.

So what do you think and which dancer do you see with Dina if this comes true? Do you consider Dina to even be a “star”? As you know, this isn’t the first time the show has taken someone and made them a “star”. It worked wonders for Bristol Palin. (Not!)

Personally, I’d rather see Lindsay dance versus her Mom. The opportunity could work wonders for Lindsay’s career not to mention getting the public’s approval back on her side? If Dina dances, I see her paired with Tony. But, let’s not forget Tony said last year he’d love to see Lindsay dance on the show!

Hmmm….

Carrie Ann Inaba Chats About Dancing With The Stars And Dating Again (Videos)

Today, Carrie Anna Inaba talked about Dancing With The Stars on Bethenny. In the footage below, Carrie Ann explains why she’d like to see Lindsay Lohan do this show (I’d love this too). She also talks of what it’s like to be dating again. Be sure to tune into the show today if you’d like to see more of this interview.

ETA: Carrie Ann has written a new blog at Parade.com. She admits to being taken off guard with the elimination as many of us were. She also highlights some of the moments from each round last night. She also shared why she thinks Bill Engvall is still on the show. Below is more. Let us know if you agree or disagree in comments.

I’m beginning to understand that Bill Engvall is still on our show because there are many viewers and voters who still love the fact that our show takes non-dancers and makes them dancers. This is the heart of the show. This is what the show started off being about and continues to be about. I have to say that it was nice to read that people are still voting with that thought in mind, and that it’s not just that he’s popular, as so many people have stated. So many people want to be on our show. Not a day goes by when I’m not out in public, on a plane, in a store, or at the nail salon and someone doesn’t ask me, “When are you going to have the normal peoples’ version of Dancing With the Stars?” I really believe that out of all our contestants, Bill Engvall embodies that idea. He is your everyday guy and he’s learning to dance. And to top it off, he does it with a wonderful, positive attitude and has fun while doing it. People like that. He has an “Uncle Bill” kind of familiarity, and I think many of the people who watch our show have bonded with him because they can relate to him. And it seems like a large number of them have chosen to support him through this journey.

I can’t really argue with this.

To represent all sides fairly, there are many people who want the best dancer to win. And they are outraged by this elimination “travesty.” And as for are the judges are concerned, I can say that our job is to judge the performances from a technical and performance standpoint. We judge the dances. America can vote on the dances and the person behind the dance. The audience can vote on any criteria, and if they like someone, they can vote for them to their heart’s content.

I was upset last night NOT because Bill is still in, but because Elizabeth Berkley was eliminated. I was looking forward to seeing what she would have brought to the semifinals and finals had she made it. I just thought she would make it. She was scoring so high with the judges. I wonder if some people just assumed she would make it to the finals and forgot to vote for her. That can happen. So last night’s elimination reminded everyone that they have to vote if they want their favorites to be in the semifinals. The votes matter more than ever.

DWTS2013 Tom Bergeron Talks With E Online About New Format, Casting Rumors, And More

Awww, this is a must read! E Online chatted with Tom Bergeron about the new season of Dancing With The Stars coming up. Tom gives his views on the new format, Maks Chmerkovskiy returning, casting rumors (some of them are true and some are not true), and more. Here are some fun takes. Note the mention on Lindsay Lohan (who I’d love to see dance at some point) and some other celebs….

“Some of the casting rumors are true,” Bergeron tells E! News, “and some of them are not true at all. Some of them might reflect contract negotiations that are going in one direction or another. But nothing is final yet.”

While sources confirm to E! News that Paula Deen and Geraldo Rivera both have been approached and have passed on the opportunity, we are also told that producers are looking for a “younger and sexier cast” to appeal to a younger demo. And that cast will most likely include the return of controversial pro dancer Maksim Chmerkovsiy, the 33-year-old Ukrainian heartthrob who did not return for season 15.

As previously reported, producers approached Lindsay Lohan for season 16, and we’re told there has been some discussion of approaching her again for season 17, now that she has completed her rehab stint. However, according to show insiders, producers believe it’s in Lindsay’s and the show’s best interest to wait some time before approaching her again.

And for any confused fans, Bergeron has this to say about how the new format will work: “Couples will be eliminated at the end of the episode. But the judges votes from that night will still count. So the viewer votes from the previous week carry over and are coupled with the judges votes from that night. So they’re still dancing for their lives there.”

Be sure to read the full article at E Online.

UPDATE: You can listen to a new interview with Tom Bergeron at this link. Nothing knew is said that what we haven’t already reported except that he reports that most of the new cast has been selected, but, not all of them yet. He also mentioned how the season will run 11 weeks. MORE at the link.

Tom Bergeron Interviewed About Dancing With The Stars, Wants William Shatner To Dance

Tom Bergeron was a guest on The View today! He was asked straight up about the controversial rumors of Lindsay Lohan and Lance Armstrong dancing on Dancing With The Stars. He said he’d rather have William Shatner dance instead (Me TOO!). William looked at him strangely at a recent even when Tom mentioned it to him.

The View ladies also commended Tom for his long running work on America’s Funniest Home Videos for which he is filming currently.

Unfortunately, it was a short segment. I was hoping he’d be asked on the Dancing With The Stars cast announcement, but, he wasn’t. :(

Lance Armstrong Turns Down Dancing With The Stars

First Lindsay Lohan and now Lance Armstrong? 8O I didn’t mind the thought of Lindsay dancing, but, I’m drawing the line at Lance dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Please, let’s hope Lance doesn’t change his mind. Below is more from Entertainment Weekly. If you’d like to read more, see the link.

Lance Armstrong may not be able to race the Tour de France again. But ABC definitely wants him on Dancing With the Stars.

Sources say the ABC reality hit offered the former professional cyclist a spot on the upcoming spring edition of the veteran reality series. Armstrong declined.

Though the network approached Armstrong before his recent doping confession, we suspect Armstrong’s high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey hasn’t dulled the network’s interest.

Heidi: This is seriously out of control. All we’re hearing about is people who are trainwrecks saying no. Should I be thankful? Should I be worried that they will find someone WORSE?? The article claims they asked him pre-confession, but still. This is how we’re going to pursue Season 16?? Come ON, producers. Who’s next? People in Jail? Dancing with the Criminally Insane??

DWTS Karina Smirnoff Defends “A-Listers” Idea At The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Launch

Tuesday night, Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, and Damian Whitewood attended the Samsung and Verizon Launch of The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in West Hollywood, California. The three looked hotter than ever and represented Dancing With The Stars in their stylish best as you can see. While there, E-Online was able to catch up with Karina to ask her why the show is trying to get more A-listers in “upping their game”. Below is how Karina commented.

But why the sudden snooty ‘tude from DWTS? When we caught up with Karina Smirnoff at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Launch at The Beverly, the dancing vet gave us her input on why the mystery A-listers need to up the show’s game:

“I think it’s great that we’re getting more A-list,” said Karina. “I think we can outdo America’s Got Talent and The Voice.”

I’m sorry, but, in my opinion, Dancing With The Stars shouldn’t try and copy anyone else. I like show just as it is. Plus, they are already at the top of their “A” game, aren’t they? Be sure to read the link in full because E-Online questions the show and their attidude a little and some of the people rumored to dance so far. They also dish who they think would make good “barely” A-Lister potentials. They list Lindsay Lohan, Ellen Degeneres, Demi Moore, Kellen Lutz, and Mariah Carey (no way will Mariah do Dancing With The Stars in my opinion. I think she’s going to be involved with the new US X Factor anyway?).

You can view more pictures of Karina, Peta, and Damian at the Samsung and Verizon Launch of The Samsung Galaxy Launch here and here.

DWTS Season 13 Cast Rumors & Possibile Contenders – Kelly Preston and Sherri Shepherd!!

Ok, so this is an older article, but, hey, we try to cover all possibilities and rumors here at Pure dancing With The Stars. We don’t want to miss anyone. Showbizspy reported at the end of April Kelly Preston had auditioned for the show. I kind of think they were dreamin’ at the time, but, you never know. What a coo it would be though if Dancing With The Stars could get Kelly on the show. She’s currently working on a new movie called “Gotti: Three Generations” which will star her husband John Travolta, Lindsay Lohan, and Al Pacino. But, that doesn’t mean Kelly’s schedule might not be free enough to do the show come Fall. Nothing else is listed on her schedule to do after the new Gotti movie…yet!!

KELLY Preston has dance fever!

The actress — who’s married to actor John Travolta — wants to follow in the footsteps her BFF Kirstie Alley by appearing on Dancing With the Stars!

“Kelly has auditioned and she is a shoo-in,” a source told In Touch Weekly magazine.

“If she wants on the show, there’s a good chance it could happen.”

We also have another “wannabe” to report on. Sherri Shepherd!! I’ll let these two tweets below do the talkin’”. Sherri has been a great supporter of Kirstie Alley this past Season as well. She wants to lose weight so she can get pregnant and what a better way to do so? Special thanks to @TeamGMak at twitter for sending us this possibility.


If this is what you can look like from dancing @ twitpic.com/57q2he “Hello Dancing w The Stars? Do U need another plus size?”
@SherriEShepherd
Sherri Shepherd


I have to lose weight anyway… fertility doctor said that as a diabetic I need to, plus if I’m pregnant they only want me to gain 10-15 lbs
@SherriEShepherd

(Heidi’s Note: Sherri’s been rumored before…was it last season or the season before?? And she’s made it clear she wants to dance with Maks on more than one occassion.)
