DWTS Rumors And Watchout: Cast Set And Celebrity Rumors??

Fashion Style posted a set of the pros set to return for Dancing With The Stars Season 21. They also write that Len Goodman has retired as a judge. Not only that, they post on celebrities interested in doing the show. Like @DWTSGossip posted at twitter, I agree how they never set the cast this early. I’d take this all with a grain of salt (even though I love who they mentioned for celebs). Heidi, what do you think? Scroll below to see her comment…

Pending any further commitments, the following pros are slated to return to the ballroom floor.

The male pro cast will include Derek Hough, Tony Dovolani, Mark Ballas, season 20 winner Val Chmerkovskiy, Artem Chigvinstev and Keo Motsepe.

For the females, reportedly returning will be Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson, Allison Holker, Emma Slater and Peta Murgatroyd.

Uncertain as to their return is Kym Johnson, who is currently in a relationship with former partner and “Shark Tank” star Robert Herjavec.

Also returning to the judge’s table are Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tognoli. Len Goodman has retired from the United States version of the series, but will remain in the U.K. to judge “Strictly Come Dancing.”

There has also been a report that several celebrities are interested in appearing on the show, including singer Ricky Martin, “Brady Bunch” star Maureen McCormick, “Glee” star Chris Colfer, model Christie Brinkley, actress Marilu Henner, singer Nick Lachey (who’s brother Drew Lachey won season 2) and actress Heather Locklear.

Heidi: Total BS. Like “Fashion Style” is going to have  clue before any other outlet.  Derek doesn’t even know if he’s back yet and he said so as recently as a week ago. I thought I heard Kym was going back to Oz as a Judge. As for who they claim is interested?? Also BS with the possible exception of Heather Locklear, Christie and Marilu (which they probably got from us). As for Len, there was just a more reliable source that quoted TPTB saying not to count him out just yet.

Fun Dancing With The Stars Twitter Exchange Between William Shatner And Sasha Farber, Ninja Warrior Dance Video

I love how William Shatner is a fan to Dancing With The Stars…especially since Tom Bergeron is one of his best buddies. Last night at twitter, William tweeted Sasha Farber and asked him if he was “in” for the next season of Dancing With The Stars. Sasha replied back that he didn’t know, but, he’d like to see William be a judge or a competitor. I say yes to the idea of William being a competitor. Whatever the case, this twitter exchange is a hoot. So cute…

DWTS Rumors And Watch Out: Will Caitlyn Jenner Dance On Dancing With The Stars Season 21?

As most of you know who follow the site, we’ve had rumors of Bruce Jenner dancing on Dancing With The Stars for several seasons. Now that she has made the transformation to a woman, will this be the season she dances? If so, who would she dance with? Although not reliable, Hollywood Life reported Mark Ballas and Derek Hough would dance with her. They also report that producers told Caitlyn that she would be “given one of best dancers they have.” Tony Dovolani talked on the possibility of Caitlyn dancing with Wendy Williams this week (you can watch this interview here if you haven’t yet). To the possibility, Tony called Caitlyn “brave” and “inspiring” and then said, “Absolutely! Why not? We’re ground-breaking people.” Derek Hough also said he’d dance with her in this new interview yesterday with Entertainment Tonight (watch below). Derek is up for any challenge and taking chances. He loves stepping out of the box and inspirational stories for what Dancing With The Stars has been about. More below. So yeah, all eyes on Caitlyn for Dancing With The Stars Season 21. It will be interesting to see if this is when Caitlyn finally dances as she has a lot of reasons to dance these days. #GoForItCaitlyn and bring on that glam if you do it. Read more..

DWTS Season 21 Watchout: Will Marilu Henner Dance In Dancing With The Stars Season 21?

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?

DWTS Season 21 Watch Out: Ramona Singer Wants To Be On Dancing With The Stars

Interesting. We might want to put this one on watch out being People is making a big deal about it?

“I love to dance,” Singer tells PEOPLE. “It’s something I have enjoyed for many years and always have. I used to dance in clubs until like 3 in the morning and I didn’t care if I had a date or not, I would just dance by myself.”

While the 57-year-old admits she’s not sure how many rounds she would make it through on ABC’s hit show, Singer already has her partner picked out.

“Val Chmerkovskiy,” she says. “He can lift me up and throw me around.”

And now that the recently single reality star is getting back into the dating scene, there would be plenty of perks if she snagged a coveted spot.

“It would be a wonderful experience,” says Singer. “I find dancing very sensual, plus I could learn some new moves.”

DWTS Season 21 Rumor: Nina Dobrev To Dance In Next Season Of Dancing With The Stars?

I don’t even want to think about the next season of Dancing With The Stars yet and maybe you don’t either, but, Hollywood Life is reporting on a new rumor that Nina Dobrev is thinking of dancing. Let us know what you think of this possibility in comments. My thoughts. I will put this simply: PLEASE NO! *cries*

“Nina has been asked by both Julianne and Derek to join the show,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “And if she does it next season Derek will be her partner. And Nina is really considering it. If she doesn’t have a job by the fall she will do it.”

Should we feel bad that we hope Nina doesn’t have a job come autumn? Because we would seriously love to see her take a stab at the samba. We’re hoping she eventually says yes! A little nudge from gal pal Julianne can’t hurt either, right?

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Nina has some other plans for her career besides a stint on DWTS.

“She knows that she might have to show some skin to get to the next level so if the part is right she will go topless in a heartbeat,” our source says. “She has already accepted the fact that it might be needed to go bare for her next move to get a real juicy role from another actress.”

Chris Soules Has Been Meeting With Producers Of DWTS Over The Past Two Weeks

US Magazine reports Chris Soules is dancing on Dancing With The Stars Season 20. Furthermore, he’s been meeting with producers over the last few weeks. Read on for more.

After Chris Soules gives out his final rose on The Bachelor finale, he’ll partner up with a different woman as the 12th contestant on season 20 of Dancing With the Stars, Us Weekly has confirmed.

When the celebs competing on the 20th edition of the ABC dance competition were announced on Good Morning America Feb. 24, one name was missing — the star partnered up with dance pro Witney Carson.

DWTS host Tom Bergeron said at the time, “Her partner couldn’t rose — I mean rise so early to be here,” and now Us can confirm that his misspeak wasn’t just a slip of the tongue.

A source told Us Weekly that Soules has been meeting with DWTS producers over the past few weeks to understand what, exactly, his run on the show will entail. He even called fellow Bachelor Sean Lowe — a Dancing With the Stars alum — for advice.

“He seems like he’s not totally sure what he’s getting himself into! It will be fascinating to see how well he does,” the source said.

Soules’ partner, reigning champion Carson, who took home the Mirrorball trophy with Alfonso Ribeiro in season 19.

DWTS20 Watchout: Is The Mystery Contestant On Dancing With The Stars Season 20 Really Chris Soules?

Is the mystery contestant on Dancing With The Stars Season 20 really Chris Soules? People made some alternate suggestions in case it isn’t. Could it be one of these choices instead?: Jesse Williams, Matt McGorry, Ryan Phillippe, Chad Michael Murray, Scott Foley and BONUS: Jamie Dornan. Read the link to see how they came up with those names. Below is a take that adds to the speculation….

Many have speculated that The Bachelor’s Chris Soules is a contender for that last spot in the DWTS cast, but the farmer from Arlington, Iowa, has been very vocal about his lack of any inherent musicality.

(Remember when he rapped? Game though he was, it still may have been the most embarrassing thing to happen on a season in which one contestant had a black censor bar covering her butt’s every short-shorted move.)

However, there have been hints. When DWTS host Tom Bergeron made the cast announcement on Good Morning America on Feb. 24, he said that the last contestant “couldn’t rose – I mean, rise early enough” for the big reveal.

Furthermore, Carson posted a selfie of herself on Instagram just one day prior to the announcement in the middle of nowhere – like Arlington, perhaps – with the caption, “Just moments away from meeting my new partner!”

That said, these could all be red herrings devised by ABC to drive us all mad from speculation.

Just in case Soules is not the mystery contestant, we’ve compiled five perfectly great contenders from other ABC franchises (plus one bonus) for the DWTS producers to consider. You’re welcome! (If any of them end up getting cast, we want a finder’s fee.)

Ryan Phillippe or Scott Foley….I say YES to those two. Let us know what you think?

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 Season 20 Rumor: NFL’s Michael Sam Signed To Do Dancing With The Stars?

What do you think about Michael Sam doing Dancing With The Stars? TMZ is reporting that he is signed. More below and at the link.

Michael Sam will be competing in March, but not on the football field, on the “Dancing with the Stars” hardwood … TMZ Sports has learned.

Michael — the first openly gay player drafted in the NFL — will be part of Season 20, which fires up next month.

I say YES! I so want a football player to do the show again!
