PureDWTS Season 25 Watchout: Disney Star Cameron Boyce To Dance?

Could Disney star Cameron Boyce be dancing in Dancing With The Stars season 25? Just Jared is reporting on the possibility. Thanks to Vin for sending!

The rumors started on social media tonight after Witney Carson shared a BTS look of her promo shoot for the show, along with her partner — who was hidden by a giant snow cone.

Whoever it is, can jump really high and we all know Cameron can definitely do that.

One Life To Live’s Andrea Evans?? DWTS Season 25 Rumors and Watchout

Kinda weird she would post a MBT a couple hours ago, saying “I want to dance” isn’t it? Maybe not…but in the interest of not ignoring possible Celebs for this season, I’m going with it. 🙂 Thanks to Vogue’s friend who gave her the heads up – I would name you but she didn’t tell me who it was. 🙂

I tried to embed her Facebook post of the MBT but it wasn’t working, so check out her photos. 🙂

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. :-)

Nick and Vanessa Lachey Headed To Dancing With The Stars Season 25?

According to a new report from People, Nick and Vanessa Lachey are going to dance in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Awesome if true. See the link for more while I get ready to leave shortly on a camping trip.

It appears Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy won’t be the only married couple in the ballroom on season 25 of Dancing with the Stars.

Nick, 43, and Vanessa Lachey, 36, will be among the celebrities vying for the Mirrorball Trophy when the ABC reality dance competition premieres Sept. 18, a source tells PEOPLE.

PureDWTS Season 25 – ET Reporting Cheryl Burke Is Back As A Pro

Well it looks like most of you guessed correctly – ET is reporting that Cheryl is indeed back as a pro this season:

Looks like Cheryl Burke is making her way back into the ballroom after all!

A source tells ET that the 33-year-old dancer will return as a pro for season 25 of Dancing With the Stars.

“She’s really excited to return to her roots,” the source says. “She doesn’t want to let anyone down, so you can expect she will be bringing her A-game every night!”

They go on to detail how her Love On The Floor tour got pushed back to 2018, and how returning to DWTS was a “no-brainer”. Given that she wasn’t announced as a pro on GMA today, it’s safe to say she is likely the 13th “surprise pro” that will be announced during the cast announcement on Sept. 6.  For those holding out for a Sasha/Jenna/Allison surprise return – sorry, but maybe next year.
I’m glad both she & Mark will be back – I tend to find that it keeps the newer, more headstrong pros in check a bit better when they have to deal with some OG MBT winners 🙂

A Source Tells People Drew Scott And Nikki Bella Are Dancing In Dancing With The Stars Season 25

This is getting more exciting by the minute. A source is telling People that Property Brothers’ Drew Scott and Total Divas’ Nikki Bella are dancing in Dancing With The Stars Season 25. Here is more….

An HGTV star and a female pro wrestler are joining season 25 of Dancing with the Stars!

A source tells PEOPLE that Property Brothers‘ Drew Scott and WWE wrestler Nikki Bella are both signed on to compete on the upcoming season of the reality dance competition series.

Drew, who got engaged to his longtime girlfriend Linda Phan at the end of last year, has starred alongside his identical twin brother, Jonathan Scott, on the hit HGTV series since 2011. Working side-by-side, Drew (a real estate expert) and Jonathan (a licensed contractor) — both 39 — help couples find, buy, remodel and transform fixer-uppers into their dream homes.

As twins and co-workers, Drew and Jonathan Scott are very close, but Drew’s fiancee fit in with the duo right away.

When season 25 of DWTS premieres in mid-September, audiences will also see Bella as a contestant on the long-running ABC dance series. Bella 33, competes as a professional wrestler and stars on E!’s Total Divas with twin sister and fellow WWE Diva Champion, Brie Bella.

Cool. Bring them on! Let us know who you think they might be dancing with in comments. More at People. We first reported on Nikki as a rumor here.

UPDATE: Here’s the E! News video that’s been circulating where Nikki denies she’s been asked to do the show – but also watch her sister Brie’s face the whole time she’s talking:

Dancing With The Stars Season 25 Rumors – A Property Brother and Chris Christy??

Did any of you see the Eclipse? Wow, it was just amazing here in Wyoming. Miraculous and then some. The moon danced with the sun. Amazing.

So, how about a couple of new rumors? ET is reporting one if the Property Brothers is dancing. Read on….

We’ve patiently been waiting to hear about which A-listers will be stepping into the ballroom when the popular dance competition returns to ABC next month, and now, ET has learned that fans of HGTV will be in for a treat.

A source tells ET that one of the Property Brothers — either Jonathan or Drew Scott — will be joining the all-star cast this season.

Ok, I’m game.

Also, could New Jersey Governor Chris Christy be dancing? I really doubt it, but, here’s a take from Vanity Fair on the subject. Be sure to read the link for more.

What options Christie might have been presented are unclear. As The Record notes, Christie is “prohibited from negotiating future employment while still in office.” Obviously, we’re hoping it’s the one that nearly all politicians in this day and age are offered and that, so far, only Rick Perry has accepted: a role on Dancing with the Stars.

Let us know what you think!

PureDWTS Season 25 Rumor Watchout: General Hospital’s Robert Palmer Watkins??

So, according to Vin and his friends (thanks Vin!) who watch General Hospital, something is up with actor Robert Palmer Watkins. Note by the tweets below that he is stepping away from the soap (or cut?), but, a “new window” has opened. Note too that at this time last year, Robert was rumored to dance on Dancing With The Stars in Season 23. At the time he followed pro Witney Carson and the official DWTS twitter site. HOWEVER, the new window might not to be to dance, but, to star in a new movie called, “Last Three Days” which he’s been working on for a month. Whatever the case, we thought we’d post on it for fun and just in case something is in the works for Dancing With The Stars as well now or in the future. I really like this possibility. What do you think?

DWTS Season 25: Rumors or Wishful Thinking? Gina Rodriguez and Michael Delorenzo

In the absence of ANYTHING concrete (yet), I was roaming around twitter looking for clues about celebs for next season of Dancing with the Stars. Looks like Michael Delorenzo would be up for it if they asked – check out his feed, as he’s talking about it a lot and using some interesting emoticons. 😉 I’m quite sure you’ll recognize him as a character actor from Blue Bloods, CSI Miami, and other things. Long resume.

Secondly, thanks to Dee for the heads up that Gina Rodriguez is now following Sasha Farber! Guess who Gina is friends with? Derek Hough…the dude who said he knew someone that was going to be on this season. 🙂 I questioned Dee relentlessly since Sasha is way down on Gina’s follow list if you look on the actual twitter, however she says that Sasha was Gina’s most recent follow on the app she uses. Not sure how Twitter sorts all that stuff. Anyway, just in case – plus, it appears that Derek and Sasha are the only two DWTS folks she follows. I could be wrong since I can only go down so far in her list right now. I think she would be great and would give Sasha a real shot at the MBT, if she is on.

PureDWTS Watchout #2: Anthony Scaramucci Asked On Dancing With The Stars Again

You might have seen our previous Anthony Scaramucci “watch-out” post when TMZ asked if he’d like to dance on Dancing With The Stars. At the time, he acted shocked and kind of dismissed the question and said he couldn’t dance. Well, in a new interview this week, he said, “We’ll see, who knows”(more below). Also, last night, DWTSgossip, PureDWTS, myself, other dancers (thanks Kristyn), and people were followed by him at twitter. Kinda makes one go “hmmmm”. Did this watch out just get a little stronger? Let us know what you think in comments. From Hollywood Reporter….

Perhaps the most revealing moment in Scaramucci’s Media Comeback Tour came in the last minute of a Facebook Live interview conducted by ABC News political director Rick Klein.

Scaramucci lit up when he was asked if he’d appear on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. “Get Lorne Michaels to call me,” he responded. “I don’t know. I’ll bring my sunglasses for that.” He also jovially parried a question about appearing on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars — he’s not a great dancer, he said, but added, “We’ll see, who knows.” (An SNL spokesperson did not respond to a question about a possible Mooch appearance.)

Insider Shoots Down Dancing With The Stars Season 25 Cast Rumors, Comments On New Cast

At the end of July, TMZ reported producers of Dancing With The Stars were in talks with “Bachelor In Paradise” star DeMario Jackson to dance in Season 25? Variety is reporting is now reporting this rumor is not true. They also shoot down some of the other rumors we’ve reported on. Below is more including a comment on the new season…..

“I don’t think so,” the source says when asked if Olympios has been considered for the dance competition series. “I think [ABC] was really happy with how Nick Viall did in the spring, but if I had to guess, I’d guess that this fall, the show would probably take a break from Bachelor Nation. [The network] doesn’t like these shows to feel too intertwined.”

As for Sean Spicer, ABC had been eyeing the former White House press secretary, but he will not be joining the reality dancing show this season. Our source says that there was “some interest” in casting Spicer over the past few weeks, but plans fell apart this past weekend and it “doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.” However, the network had been talking to Spicer and was interested in him because of his recent pop culture relevance. In the fall, ABC typically goes for buzzy personalities who are newsworthy, since many athletes are not available with football season and have to wait to be cast on “DWTS” until the spring.

According to our source, Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly ousted from Trump’s administration after a now-infamous explosive and vulgar interview, won’t be putting on his dancing shoes either. ABC hasn’t even reached out to Scaramucci.

“My gosh. By the time the show premieres, who knows how many other communications directors we’ll have gone through,” our source says with a laugh. In jest, the source adds, “Sure — [they’ll cast] Scaramucci, and then the replacement next week, and then the replacement next week. It will be ‘Dancing With the White House Communications Corp!’”

While our insider is staying mum on who has been officially cast for Season 25, the source says the network is “really happy” about who has signed on so far, but is still searching for more celebrity contestants. “I think it’s going to be a really warm cast — really fun and a lot of great dance ability.”

I hope so. More at Variety.
