Sharna Burgess has been in New York City, but, is it possible she met up with her new partner for Dancing With The Stars: Snoop dogg or maybe the other guy?? I don’t know, but, this sure is an interesting find by @DWTSGossip. I love the idea. I think Snoop he’d be a gas!!
I loved Nascar’s Michael Waltrip on Dancing With The Stars. Would Ty Dillon be a good one to dance too if TPTB decided to let another Nascar driver do the show? I say YES to the idea (I know my hubby would love it too!)!!! Below is more from Nascar.com.
NASCAR’s stars descended on Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, and a Reddit AMA chat broke out.
One fan, pinkysugarfree, said “Michael Waltrip was an entertaining hit on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ last season” and wanted to know which reality show drivers would be on.
Ty Dillon’s new wife, Haley Carey, has the XFINITY Series championship contender confident he could do better than Waltrip did on the ABC celebrity competition, which premieres March 16 for its 10th season.
“‘Dancing with the Stars and I would win it,” Dillon said. “I’m a great dancer. My wife wants me to be on it really bad.”
@DWTSGossip mentioned Malcom Butler this morning as a possibility for Dancing With The Stars Season 20. Now a source for Hollywood Life says producers have asked Malcolm to dance.
Malcolm had one of the biggest plays ever in Super Bowl history when during the final seconds he intercepted the ball at the Seahawks — causing the Patriots to secure their win. Now, a source exclusively revealed to HollywoodLife.com if Malcolm will take on a totally new challenge, learning how to dance.
“The producers have reached out and have asked Malcolm to be a part of the upcoming shows season,” our insider said. “He really wants to do it but will make his final decision after talking to the higher ups in the Patriots organization because they may not want him to risk injury in the off season. If that happened it could cost him millions and his day job.”

I so want a football player to dance again so I say bring him on (if true!).
Heidi: Here’s what I think, and it’s VERY CYNICAL, so apologies in advance. Here is what I speculate happens from time to time. Sites like Hollywood Life are all over twitter and the internet like fleas. They see people like us, and DWTSGossip and even Kristyn Burtt talk on this site and on twitter and that becomes their “source”. Told you I was cynical. We know of another site that very obviously gets their story ideas from here so why not? Anyway, besides my cynical view of the whole thing, I would not be the least bit surprised to find that the producers wanted him. But I also would not be surprised to find he’d never even been asked.
Vogue: lol Don’t apologize. I’ve oftened wondered the same.
Remember when we posted about the possibility of Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 20? Many of us we’re so excited on this rumor. Well, apparently, he’s said “no” again. Below is more from the Boston Herald.
“I would love to go on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ but it would be unfair because I would win so easily,” Gronk told the Track. “All kidding aside I don’t think at this time in my career I should be leaving my team during offseason training. I do like to do other things, but not if they interfere with football at this time.”

Ok, so this might be reaching for straws, but, at this point in the off season, you never know? Apparently, Savannah Chrisley of “Chrisley Knows Best” is following Rob Wade. Although I couldn’t find it (if you can, let us know), a fan tells us that Val Chmerkovskiy is following her. Also, Chrisley recently retweeted a post of a fan campaigning for her. Below are some screen shots. Could this be something in the making for Dancing With The Stars Season 20? If so, let us know what you think? Thanks to fan @Liz_Lemon2 for the heads up!
ADDING: Savannah also posted of having “exciting news to share”. Also, Val is following her in the 7th row at twitter. Thanks to DLT for finding….
I think Sharna Burgess might have followed Russell Wilson a few weeks ago, but, again….it makes one wonder if this is a serious partnership in the making for Dancing With The Stars Season 20? Thanks to Lauren for the heads up.
ETA: In my haste to post this before going to bed, I quoted the much more inflammatory Enstarz instead of the original article from the Examiner. In my wide awake mind, I usually know better than to go with the latter, instead of the former. Anyway, as you see from the original article, it’s clearly just talk and Enstarz was blowing it up.
Sounds to me like “just talk” about possibly doing it in the future – her fans make it a thousand times worse by taking every casual comment as an affirmation (perhaps they don’t read past the title or first sentence). But, since it’s that time of year, I figured I would post it and say “I don’t think so, but anything is possible” for this season. And also point out that Vogue had the lead on this one more than two months ago, thanks to one of our awesome readers. From The Examiner:
Speaking of competitiveness, your “Pretty Little Liars” co-star Janel [Parrish] did pretty well on “Dancing with the Stars” last year. Would you ever want to do that?
Mitchell: You know, I do love dancing and I do love watching “Dancing with the Stars.” If that were to ever come up, who knows? You never know. Right now, I’m loving watching it on TV and Janel did a great job.
She did. She was fabulous.
Mitchell: They were amazing.
Who would you pick, of all of the male pros, if you could pick one as your partner?
Mitchell: I’d probably go with Val [Chmerkovskiy, who was also Parrish’s partner]. He’s a good friend of mine. I’d team up with Val and we’d bring home the trophy [laughs].
Large word of caution – this is based on very, very little. Thing is, last time we posted something similar, Cody Simpson really did dance. And the last time I ignored something like this, I shouldn’t have (Hines Ward). And you can’t deny the timing is about right. So, this from Shane Harper – many of his fans immediately assumed DWTS. Thing is, this guy is an actual trained dancer – if he’s actually cast, he would be a massive ringer. Also FYI – he’s apparently VERY tall.
P.S. There is a Shane Harper that is a hockey player but I checked several times to make sure I had the right one. This one is 6 foot plus, 21-year old singer, dancer actor. I can’t believe they would cast someone who is well trained enough to claim to be “Principle Dancer” in a variety of TV shows and movies, but consider his age and the producers obsession with the youth demo. That said, he can’t touch the online following of either Cody or James.
DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski Says He’s Healthy To Dance On Dancing With The Stars
Dancing With The Stars has asked Rob Gronkowski to dance in the past. Being he’s been hurt in the off seasons, he’s always said no, but, this season might be different being he’s healthy. Check out this fun convo with Rob and Jimmy Kimmel at the 1:39 mark. Thanks to DWTSgossip for another great find. I say bring him on. Hubby definitely agrees and says he’d be funny!
What an interesting find by DWTSgossip!! If you head to The Star Phoenix, you can watch a new interview with Ex-UFC champ Anderson Silva. He talks of really wanting to make a difference and “giving back”. Not sure where this fits on the rumor scale, but, I say, bring him on. What do you think?
POSTMEDIA: You were announced as the next coach of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil. Which other reality-TV show would you do better in: So You Think You Can Dance or American Idol?
SILVA: (Laughs) I think the next goal in the United States is to go win Dancing With The Stars (laughs).
