Hey All! Don’t forget to watch LIVE With Kelly And Michael Monday morning as the pros of Dancing With The Stars will be dancing for their Oscar special as previously reported. Furthermore and according to the producer’s instagram (see rehearsal video below), they will be performing in the “opening number”. I see Keo, do you? But, what about Sasha?
Lord have mercy. Surely NOT? Thanks to Charlie, in the comments, I went on a little search and found this:
Now, of course, there are 500 things that she could be having meetings about in LA. But, there are STILL two male pro spots open, presumably because those celebs haven’t signed on the dotted line yet. So…just throwing this one out there as a possibility. The timing is frightening. I hope this is just fear on my part, considering her recent past – but I can’t ignore the timing.
BTW, Mama June has been rumored before….for Season 16.
We called her a “longshot” in our Rumor Round Up for that season. Let’s hope that’s still the case. Perhaps they met with her because another female celeb fell through. Have a hard time believing the DWTS producers would go this route at this time, all things considered.
Now, for my wild and crazy GUESS at a possible celeb dancer. Surely there are a lot of people who think ONE thing when they keep hearing the tag line for season 20?? “Our ‘Perfect 10′ Season”?? BO DEREK. Just throwing it out there. It took me a while to figure out why a little bell rang every time I heard “Perfect 10″ – then last night it hit me. Bo Derek was “the perfect 10″ in the movie “10” with Dudley Moore years ago.
Just tossin’ that out there just in case. I have no insider knowledge on this one, but their harping on “perfect 10″ has been bugging me since I heard it.
Shortly, Gleb Savchenko and his partner Adelina Sotnikova are going to dance a Cha Cha in week 2 of Dancing With The Stars Russia. We’ll be reporting on their dance as soon as we can. In the meantime, go to Russia TV to watch the show go down around 8:45a.m ET. You’ll get to see Gleb’s wife Elena Samodanova judge as well!
ETA: Gleb and Adelina scored a perfect 50 points from the judges and placed 2nd for the night (adding: or did they tie? It’s hard to understand since it’s all in Russian). They killed it out there tonight. Words that came to mind first on their dance: stylish, sleek, fun, colorful, light, and sexy. They brought the power and the fun! I also loved the gentle and fun way Gleb taught her. Be watching this link as they should be posting the video for their dance soon as well as all of the dances!

Cheryl Burke Wants Leah Remini To Plan Her Wedding, Photos From The Hollywood Domino Annual Pre-Oscar Soirée & Tournament
Awww, it’s good to see Cheryl Burke again. Last night, she attended the Hollywood Domino Annual Pre-Oscar Soirée & Tournament presented by Bovet 1822. She also talked with People about her wedding plans and how she’d like Leah Remini to plan it(she’d be a hoot). More below and at People.
Yes, Burke – who thinks Torregiani is going to propose around both their birthdays in May – is completely comfortable letting Remini guide Torregiani to a ring and then also handle all the wedding plans.
“Leah would take over,” said Burke. “I never dreamt about a wedding or anything like that. I’m not picky. Leah is. She’s very particular. She’s a great party planner. I know I could leave it up to her, and it’ll be great.”
There’s also an added bonus to having Remini be her wedding planner, said Burke with a laugh: “I don’t have to pay her!”
ABC Medianet has announced the Good Morning America Dancing With The Stars Cast reveal for Tuesday, February 24 (which we have previously reported). Though note how they also mention a surprise guest!!! Any guesses on who it could be? Interesting! I hope it’s DEREK HOUGH!!
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24 – The new celebrity cast of “Dancing with the Stars” will be revealed exclusively in front of a live audience with hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews, plus a surprise guest; Lara Spencer reports from LA; the woman who did not receive a rose on last night’s “The Bachelor”
Well, I saw @DWTSGossip tweet the other day that Lahah Hathaway was spotted at McCadden (the rehearsal space) and neglected to post about it. I confess to having bouts of ambivalence.
It’s also true that lots of people use McCadden…but the timing is very interesting. But what drives me to post it now is that Lalah retweeted another blog that included DWTSGossip’s tweet about her doing DWTS. Now THAT is interesting – not that they copied our usual rumor round up post, but that she retweeted gossip about her being on DWTS. Many thanks to Cordell for the heads up on this one.
In the words of Courtney: “Who is she??” Well, she’s an R&B singer who apparently just won a Grammy.
Last night, the ladies of dancing With The Stars attended an OK! Magazine Pre-Oscar Event at The Argyle in Hollywood, California. Aren’t they gorgeous?!!! More photos at Getty Images. And question: who is this with Sharna Burgess? That is not Paul Kirkland like the link says. Could this be her new partner for Dancing With The Stars?
Guess who Val just followed. And guess who followed him back?? I dunno if it means anything – it could be he’s finally following her after meeting her on General Hospital. He could be making an attempt at “clever”. But I do think Nancy has either been rumored before, or people have been campaigning for her. Why yes, she’s has been mentioned before for Season 11. Apparently she was on some sort of list.
What an interesting instagram by the Dancing With The Stars instagram account! It says, “The gang’s back together! Getting ready for the opening number for the #DWTS premiere March 16th. Yusss!” There are a couple of new faces here. Are they new pros or are they in the troupe?
Scroll below for updates…
ETA: Below Jenna Johnson announces Alan (Bersten) as being in the troupe. Thanks Lauren!:
ETA2: Here’s a fun message from Kristyn Burtt on the new photo….
