DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Russell Wilson Said He Would Do Dancing With The Stars If….

Isn’t this an interesting instagram posted by Karina Smirnoff last night(see below)? Russell Wilson, quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, says he’d do Dancing With The Stars if they win the Superbowl this year. Note too how recently Russell said “no” to Dancing With The Stars, but “yes”, to a future season. He was also seen at rehearsals this season. We better keep a special eye on this one for Dancing With The Stars Season 20 and I’m dying for another football player to dance, are you?

So….calling out @dangerusswilson “if I win this year’s #SuperBowl, I’ll do next season of @dancingabc #DWTS” ~R.Wilson. Ok-Should we hold him to it?!?!

DWTS Season 19 – Rumor Roundup!!!

Greetings from hot & sunny Spring, TX :-) I’m actually typing this poolside at my aunt’s house, as I’m on vacation right now – but Vogue & Heidi have been putting in some serious hours on the casting rumors, and as I have the past few seasons, I thought it might be good to work up a good summary post for all the casting rumors that have cropped between the end of last season and right now.  8-)

If any new casting rumors pop up between now and the cast announcement next week, I’ll try to update – but at the rate they’ve been flowing these past few days, it might not happen immediately.  Please be patient :-)

I’ve divided our potential dancers this season into 5 categories: the “legitimate possibilities”, which are rumors that have surfaced within the last week or so (when most casting leaks occur) and come from sources that are generally pretty reliable when it comes to casting leaks; the “long shots”, which are rumors from less-reliable sources, vague tweets, and ambiguous responses from the celebs themselves – basically, rumors that we aren’t really as confident about; the “wannabes/campaigners”, who are celebs who have expressed interest in doing the show (but haven’t actually been reported as a rumor by any reputable outlets); “pure randomness”, which is for random and slightly interesting observations that may or may not indicate a certain celeb’s possible participation in this season – generally, they mean nothing, but we’re adding them here for sh*ts & giggles. :-) And then there are the “no’s”, the celebs that have confirmed that they won’t be participating in this season.

Legitimate possibilities:

Andi Dorfman
Randy Couture
Kacy Catanzaro
Antonio Sabato Jr.
Janel Parrish
Lolo Jones
Sadie Robertson
Betsey Johnson
Lea Thompson
Bethany Mota
Jonathan Bennett

Longshots:

Lindsay Lohan
Meagan Tandy
Tommy Chong
Colton Smith
Andy Pettitte
James Storm
Shania Twain
Ashley Gold
Landon Donovan
Tim Howard
Kandi Burress/someone from Bravo
Josh Murray
Sara Evans

Wannabes/Campaigners:

Vincent M. Ward
Jane Savoie

Pure Randomness:

Tavis Smiley
Carly Steel
Shemar Moore
Courtney Robertson

The “No’s”:

Jim Kelly

 

So which rumors are you guys most excited about? Which ones do you think are bogus? Let’s hear it!

DWTS Season 19: Lindsay Lohan To Dance And More Celeb Rumor Talk?

I really wish Lindsay Lohan would dance, but, like all the previous rumors on her in the past, I bet this won’t happen. Below is more from Hollywood Life. Note that Gossip Cop is saying this won’t happen as well, but, hey, it’s interesting they keep pursuing her (if true) and we report on everything just in case.

The Dancing With The Stars cast will officially be revealed on September 4, but as the celeb contestants are shaking up, HollywoodLife.com has learned that the show is pushing to get Lindsay Lohan on the dance floor! The best part? One of her Mean Girls costars is already confirmed!

HollywoodLife.com has been giving you Dancing With The Stars scoop all week long, and here’s the best one to date…even though it’s not set in stone.

Lindsay Lohan is at the top of the show’s wish list. Although she is in talks to join Season 19, it’s not looking all too promising.

Unfortunately, we’ve learned that the chances are “less than 10%,” at this point, but the show is still trying.

ETA: Not sure how creditable Hollywood Life is (since they’ve been wrong a lot in the past), but, this morning they are reporting more on the existing rumors we’ve heard about, plus, a special mention on Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray. You can read more at the link.

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman is reportedly joining DWTS, along with Josh Murray, HollywoodLife.com exclusively revealed. Our source tells us, “They will compete against each other along with the other stars.”

Hmm? Ok, we will soon see.

Dancing With The Stars Season 19: More Celebrity Rumors And Troupe Info

Sorry for being late with this report. Charlie’s team of Angels have been really busy today working and travelling. Anyway, below is TMZ with more celeb leaks…

Famously eccentric designer Betsey Johnson is bringing her brand of crazy to “Dancing with Stars” … along with the much younger YouTube fashionista Bethany Mota.

As we told you … ABC had been looking to sign a big social media star … and found her in 18-year-old Mota … who’s amassed more than 7 million fans with her YouTube tutorials on fashion, hair and makeup.

Sources close to the show tell us … producers have also tapped “Back to the Future” actress Lea Thompson, Jonathan Bennett from “Mean Girls,” Janel Parrish from “Pretty Little Liars,” and Sadie Robertson — granddaughter of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson.

Fascinating, let us know what you think? I love Lea Thompson especially!

Also, Gossip Cop is reporting Tommy Chong is going to dance. Good job Heidi who found this rumor on the 19th. Too fun!!

Just remember nothing is 100% until the official cast announcement on September 4th.

Last, but, not least, Kristyn Burtt reports Henry Byalikov, Jenna Johnson, Lindsey Arnold and Sasha Farber as this season’s troupe members. (what about Gleb? :( )

Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson To Dance On DWTS Season 19?

According to US Weekly, Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson is joining the cast of dancing With The Stars Season 19! More below and at the link….

And another! Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson is the latest celeb to join the new roster for ABC’s season 19 of Dancing With the Stars, a source exclusively confirms to Us Weekly. The 17-year-old model joins previously revealed competitors Janel Parrish, Lolo Jones, and Antonio Sabato Jr.

While speaking to Us Weekly in May, Sadie’s mom Korie Robertson revealed to Us her daughter has always wanted to be on the hit ABC competition show. “I think that our kids are really natural in front of the camera and they have fun with it,” the A&E star said when asked if she thinks her and Willie’s kids will continue with careers in the entertainment industry. “Sadie I think wants to maybe be on a talk show and she wants to be on Dancing with the Stars!” she laughingly added.

ETA: Heidi here with an apparent confirmation.

TMZ Reports On DWTS Producer Wish List, Possible Celebs Dancing?

Ok, now TMZ is reporting on a producer wish list which includes some of our recent rumors. Hmmmm. Read the link for more and be sure to see a picture at the link as well….

We got a hold of the ‘DWTS’ producers wish list — the celebs they’re gunning to get for Season 19 — and it includes ‘Bachelorette’ Andi Dorfman, ex-UFC fighter Randy Couture, “American Ninja Warrior” contestant Kacy Catanzaro, and Antonio Saboto Jr.

Our ‘DWTS’ sources tell us they’re also trying to land a female YouTube star … who were told tens of millions of followers. It’s a smart ploy for a veteran show with aging viewers to pull in fresh, younger viewers.

Olympian Lolo Jones Headed To Dancing With The Stars Season 19??

E Online is reporting that Olympian Lolo Jones is headed to Dancing With The Stars for Season 19. They are also reporting Janel Parrish (who we reported about earlier) is dancing as well. Interesting!

A Pretty Little Liars star is set to bring the drama to Dancing With the Stars when it returns for its 19th season on Sept. 15.

While ABC doesn’t comment on casting rumors, a source exclusively tells E! News that Janel Parrish, best known as Mona on the ABC Family hit series, will be competing for the mirrorball trophy when the show returns on Sept. 15. Also heading to DWTS? Olympic hurdler and bobsledder Lolo Jones.

Season 19 Rumor: Pretty Little Liar’s Janel Parrish To Dance on Dancing With The Stars?

Two days ago, Janel Parrish tweeted she was on her way to a “fun new experience” (sceencap below). She also was at photo shoot yesterday on the same day as the Dancing With The Stars promo shoots (instagram below). What’s more, one of the people on Afterbuzz TV last night (video below) mentions how he heard one of the cast members from “Pretty Little Liars” will be on the new season of Dancing With The Stars. The panel thinks it’s Janel Parrish since her character was just killed off during last night’s show …and for what she tweeted and being she’s an ABC star too. They start talking on it at the 3:50 mark. Not sure what’s up, but, hey you never know? What if Janel Parrish is dancing and who do you see as her Pro if true? Thanks to fan Kelly A for bringing this possible rumor to our attention.

PureDWTS Season 19 Rumor: General Hospital’s Antonio Sabato Jr. To Dance?
