DWTS Watchout: Dina Parise For Dancing With The Stars Season 24??

So, did you all notice how @DancingABC RTed this tweet by Dina Parise? She’s a former Figure Skater and Drag Racer. I’m starting to wonder if they are thinking of asking her to dance next season? We better put her on “watchout”.

Billy Bush For Dancing With The Stars Season 24??

Mark down our first rumor for Dancing With The Stars Season 24. According to Page Six, producers has began courting Bully Bush. Let us know what you think in comments.

An insider tells Page Six that “Dancing with the Stars” has begun courting the embattled “Today” star, 44, to compete on their upcoming spring 2017 season.

“It comes in March,” the source told us. “That’s far enough away. Everybody goes on to do the apology tour. It’s ironic there is Ryan Lochte on, who he started this controversy with when he started with ‘Today.’”

If Bush inks a deal with the show, which has relaunched a number of careers, he could dance his way to a new job on a new network.

“It’s also a way for ABC to establish a relationship with him,” the source noted.

Page Six previously reported Bush is already searching for a “high-power fixer” to help his ailing image. Another source emphatically said, “His likability factor has always been off anyway as a lot of viewers find him annoying.” And this could help.

More at Page Six. I’m not sure I want to comment on this one or not? Even before this scandal, I’ve found him annoying.

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. :-)

DWTS Rumor Watchouts: Indystar Speculates On James Hinchcliffe and Indianapolis 500 Champion Alexander Rossi

Indy Star is reporting that there might be a Indy race car driver to dance on Dancing With The Stars this season being there was an ABC reporter asking James Hinchcliffe questions. They speculate on other drivers too including Indianapolis 500 Champion Alexander Rossi who had to ask if he could talk about it. Read on for more and good job to Courtney. She was the first person that knew something was up early yesterday morning and put two and two together. Adding: Court also posted this post at the beginning of August.

FORT WORTH, Texas — IndyCar drivers James Hinchcliffe and Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi confirmed to IndyStar interest from ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” which begins its 23rd season Sept. 12.

Neither admitted to agreeing to participate, however, Hinchcliffe was interviewed Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway by two men who identified themselves as working for ABC.

The top-secret reveal of the 13 celebrity cast members is Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Motor sports legend Mario Andretti and his grandson, IndyCar driver Marco Andretti, both were asked if they had interest in participating in the show as Helio Castroneves did in 2007, but they declined. Mario Andretti, 76, said show officials “tried really hard” to convince him, but he said his schedule is too busy.

“I’m flattered,” he said. “I’d have done it, but it would have taken me away from too many things I’m doing.”

Hinchcliffe would only say he’s “heard other (drivers) mentioned.” Rossi was even more vague as prospects are sworn to secrecy.

“Can I talk about this?” Rossi asked an Andretti Autosport staff member, who shook her head no.

“I can’t talk about it,” he followed.

Who Do You Think is DWTS Season 23 Artem Chigvinstev’s Partner – How About Maureen McCormick?

The Dancing With The Stars instagram account teased on Artem Chigvinstev’s partner. Read below. Do you have some guesses? A fan named Kennedy wrote and said they think it’s Maureen McCormick. I looked up the hints and it’s true for how these hints fit. This Brady Bunch star has been on my wish list forever. I’d love to see her dance. So, what do you think in helping us to put it together and do you have other guesses that fit?

Hint: @theartemc's partner is a published author, released a country album, and started acting when she was 9! Who is she? #DWTS

The DWTS Season 23 Rumor Mill Grinds It’s Way Back To Ryan Lochte

As we reported eons ago…only only a week or so…Ryan Lochte is back in consideration as a DWTS Season 23 contestant. People.com says it’s because of his Rio controversy. Would not surprise me at all….

Ryan Lochte is in talks to join the celebrities competing on season 23 of Dancing with the Stars, a source tells PEOPLE.

While the cast of the latest edition of the reality competition series has yet to be announced and ABC does not comment on casting reports, the source says Lochte may be among the front-runners.

The news comes shortly after Lochte, 32, ignited controversy by fabricating a details about being robbed during his time at the Rio Olympics in August.

“I’ve been thinking about it a lot, because I have a big heart, and I feel like let down a lot of people,” Lochte told PEOPLE on Wednesday. “I feel bad that I have let people down.”

PureDWTS Season 23 Cast Rumors & Watchout: Random Sh*t That’s Cropping Up on Twitter

First of all, thank you to everyone that has tweeted us with heads-up on stuff you’ve seen – we really do appreciate it, especially since the 3 of us do have regular jobs that prevent us from monitoring Twitter 24-7.  You guys have sent us some pretty interesting finds, but it’s getting to the point where we’ve gotten so many “Hmmm, that’s interesting, but is it really worthy of its own post?” type-things that I feel as though this post is necessary to keep track of what’s going down on Twitter.  I will probably add to it in the coming days as more stuff comes up.

First up, an interesting tweet from Ashley Tisdale – thanks @IAmKimmieHo for pointing out to me:

ashleytweet

It could be DWTS, it could be something else entirely – who knows.  But the timing is about right for DWTS (according to a source, they still are working to cast this season), and she did show up to support Corbin in season 17.  Plus – is she really up to much now? Wasn’t High School Musical like, 10 years ago? UPDATE: She says it’s not DWTS.  Oh well.

In another interesting turn, both Sasha & Emma seemed to be happily tweeting about something that happened yesterday – thanks @juliadelbel for pointing this out:

sashatweet

emmatweet2

Not sure what to make of these – seems to indicate that SOMETHING happened to them yesterday.  Did they get engaged? Did they get told they would both be on this season? Did they find out they got awesome partners? Who the hell knows. But it’s interesting.

UPDATE, 8/24, 2:47 PM EST: Man, I gotta admire Heidi’s keen eye on this one – I’m usually the one paying close attention to the female pros’ nails.  So this Snap just got posted to the DWTS Snapchat (which I am told old & unhip to keep up with)…

Don’t those nails look awfully similar to the ones Jojo is sporting in this Instagram pic? Discuss.

Welcome to Dallas babe ☺️ @jrodgers11 #sorryitssohot

ETA: Heidi here with a weird ass photo seen on twitter not long ago. No, we don’t know what it means. And no, it’s not why I was “sighing” on twitter. 😀 Discuss.

DWTS Season 23 Watchout: How About Robert Palmer Watkins?

Soap Central is reporting General Hospital’s Robert Palmer Watkins is all on board to dance on Dancing With The Stars after fans petitioning for him to dance. Usually petitions don’t pan out, but, I thought it was interesting that he is following @DancingABC and Witney Carson (screenshot below). Could something be up? If so, how do you like him paired with Witney? Thanks to Jamie for the first heads up.

Fans of the actor have been very vocal about how much they’d love to see Watkins compete on the show and have even started a petition, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by the heartthrob. “Apparently people are rallying for me to be on Dancing With the Stars. Been getting a lot of messages,” he wrote on Instagram. “For the record I’m totally on board!”
