You might be surprised to learn that we already have a few celebrities rumored to dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 21. Take a look at them here if interested. And here’s another to add to the mix….Marilu Henner. Recently, she was on the Today Show. When the topic of Dancing With The Stars was brought up, she said, “I don’t know….we’ll see?” You can watch the interview here. I kind of get the feeling she’s been asked to dance before. I’d love to see her dance. What do you think?

Entertainment Weekly Chats With Rumer Willis And Val Chmerkovskiy About Winning Dancing With The Stars And Next Plans
Entertainment Weekly interviewed Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy about their run and win on Dancing With The Stars. Read below for how they are feeling on it all right now. Also note, that Rumer will be performing in Sway. See this tweet.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How do you feel after last night’s win?
RUMER WILLIS: I’m so ecstatic. I could not be happier.
What were your thoughts going into last night’s results show?
WILLIS: Honestly, I was just excited. I knew that the work that I had put in and we had one last dance to do, and I just wanted to make it something that I really enjoyed.
How does it feel to be the winner of season 20? It’s been a really special season.
WILLIS: So awesome. I couldn’t be happier that we won in general, but to win also on such a big season. This season they really pulled out all the stops with everything. I feel like everyone who was competing just really brought their A-game. I know it was tough. The dances that were happening and the freestyles that happened at the end were all so incredible, so to have it come down to us was pretty incredible.
Val, this was your first win. How has this season been different for you?
VAL CHMERKOVSKIY: Well, it’s my first win. So that’s already different. But it’s just been a great season. I feel like we approached everything really honestly, and I feel like everything came out genuine. I feel like that’s why people really got behind us and were able to relate to Rumer and her journey. It was great to be a part of that.
What will you miss most now that the season is over?
CHMERKOVSKIY: Performing together.
CHMERKOVSKIY: That’s the biggest thing. There’s so much stress that goes into actually creating the numbers and the rehearsals and the time crunch and preparing that you never really have a chance to appreciate what you’ve done. So I’m going to take a moment to realize what we just did and reflect on that. And then we’re probably going to start missing each other.

This is so cool. Mark Ballas And Shirley Ballas are holding an event in New York City to help people who smoke to quit. More below from PR Newswire.
PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Every smoker has a reason for how they started smoking and why they want to quit. With one of the largest global quit-smoking days approaching, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare (GSKCH) and its Nicorette® and NicoDerm® CQ® smoking cessation brands are encouraging smokers to share their “why” for quitting by providing them the “how” at a free What’s Your Why?™ Smoke Swap event.
The event will take place in New York’s Times Square on Wednesday, May 27, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., anchored by a 20-foot smashed-out cigarette butt. Adult smokers will be encouraged to share and celebrate who or what motivates them to quit – their “why.” All smokers who want to jumpstart a quit attempt will receive support from smoking cessation experts and free quit-smoking product and resources, including a starter pack of Nicorette® gum, NicoDerm® CQ® patches or a $10 coupon towards Nicorette® mini Lozenges.
“It is such an inspiration to hear the “why” from smokers who have quit. What we are learning, too, is each “why” is as individual as the person who shares it. But if I had to share the most common one, I would say it’s a family member’s encouragement. It’s invaluable to smokers who have made this life-changing decision,” said Lisa Maxwell Anekwe, senior brand manager, Smoking Cessation. “We want to help every smoker in his or her effort to quit by providing tools and resources, like Nicorette® and NicoDerm® CQ®, which have helped millions of smokers all over the world in their quit attempt.”(1)
“Dancing with the Stars'” Mark Ballas, who quit smoking more than one year ago, and his mother, world-renowned ballroom dancer and former 40-year smoker Shirley Ballas, will be on site from 2-4 p.m. meeting fans, providing quit tips and taking the stage for a dance demonstration.
“I was very inspired as a child by my mom. So when I put my mind towards quitting smoking, I knew she was going to be the best support and partner. It was the right choice for both of us and we did it together,” said Mark Ballas.
“Mark is my world. I would do anything for him – even quitting smoking. When he asked me to do this with him, I couldn’t say yes fast enough, but there are still times I struggle with cravings. When that happens, I remind myself of my “why” – being there for Mark and my future grandchildren – and it gives me the strength to remain smoke-free,” said Shirley Ballas.
