Saturday Night Live Veteran Chris Kattan In Talks With DWTS!

According to E Online, Dancing With The Stars s in talks with Saturday Night Live Veteran Chris Kattan For Season 24. Hmmm, not sure what to think on this one since I don’t watch that show ever.

Dancing With the Stars better secure the rights to Haddaway’s “What Is Love” for new contestant Chris Kattan. E! News has learned the Saturday Night Live veteran is in serious talks to compete in season 24 of the reality dance competition and you can be sure there will be some Night at the Roxbury, which used “What Is Love,” homages. Perhaps Mr. Peepers will make an appearance?

Normani Kordei from 5th Harmony to Join DWTS Per Reports

Via People Magazine, the 5th Harmony cast member is Normani:

Though ABC has no official comment on the news ahead of the full cast reveal on Good Morning America next week, a source confirms the 20-year-old member of the hit girl pop group and global ambassador for the American cancer society will compete on the dance competition’s 24th season.

They also confirm Sharna is back…

A second source confirms that dance pro Sharna Burgess will be returning. She joins confirmed pros Witney Carson, brothers Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy and Maks’ fiancée Peta Murgatroyd, who will hit the dance floor just two and a half months after giving birth to son Shai Aleksander.

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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 24 – Tony Dovolani Not Returning As a Pro

So Tony just posted this…

I wanted my fans to hear it from me first. I will not be on Dancing With The Stars this season, season 24. While I will miss the show and interacting with our wonderful audiences, both at home and in the ballroom, I will continue to focus on growing my Dance With Me USA studios and teaching. I will also be traveling across the country performing and making personal appearances. I will be hosting my second annual Tony Dovolani Foundation: Golf For Special Needs Children tournament on July 14. I’m honored to be a member of the PGA’s Player and Coaching Development Committee and to be contributing to the future of the professional game of golf. Catch me on ABC’s Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion Shall We Dance On Ice special this Saturday, February 25 3:00pm – 5:00pm EST 2:00pm – 4:00pm CST & PST 1:00pm – 3:00pm MST Tony Dovolani

A post shared by Tony dovolani (@tonydovolani) on


Man, that really stinks  – I found myself really missing Tony’s warmth and patience with his partners last season.  But as I shared before – I started getting the impression that Artem had replaced Tony as the pro that “gets all the older ladies”, and that I wasn’t sure there was going to be room for both in this season’s roster. And given that he seems to be giving us a long-term look at what he is going to be up to for the next several months, I kinda wonder if we’ve seen Tony’s swan song on DWTS 🙁

Thoughts?

More DWTS 24 Rumors: Someone From Pretty Little Liars, Property Brothers, or Storage Wars?

Hollywood Life has some hints for more people who are dancing on Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Whether these hints are true or not remains to be seen. Any guesses?

So, who else is competing? Glad you asked! A cast member from Pretty Little Liars, and a star from Property Brothers or Storage Wars are pretty much set in stone, a series insider EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com earlier this month, noting that only two or three spots are still open. That means the cast list is nearly complete! Season 24 is gearing up to be the best one yet!

See Hollywood Life to read the full article.

ETA: I was just looking at all of our rumors gathered over the off season. Note how Ashley Benson from “Pretty Little Liars” was one of them. Thanks to Colleen for the reminder too.

Nancy Kerrigan and Fifth Harmony? The DWTS Season 24 Rumors Continue…

I would be down with Nancy Kerrigan and a member of Fifth Harmony, I think. Variety says that Nancy is in along with a member of Fifth Harmony plus they reiterate Mr. T, Nick Viall and Simone as we previously reported.

With less than one month until the Season 24 premiere of “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC is setting the new cast of celebrity contestants.

Nancy Kerrigan will compete on the upcoming season, along with a member of Fifth Harmony, a source tells Variety. Our insider also tells us that “The Bachelor” Nick Viall will more-than-likely be a contestant.

Mr. T. and Simone Biles will also compete on Season 24, our source says, confirming the participation of the wrestler and Olympic gymnast, who was courted to dance on the competition series last year, but was unable to due to scheduling. (Her Rio teammate Laurie Hernandez competed and won last season).

ETA: Fifth Harmony held a Dancing With The Stars Chat last season. Watch this and see who their favorite dancers are on the show. Several of them said they’d like to dance with Val. They like Derek too. More below courtesy of Haley Alexandra….

PureDWTS Season 24 Cast Rumor – Mr. T & Simone Biles Again???

Given that ET has a pretty good track record, I’d say this is pretty legit.  Apparently Mr. T is going to be dancing this season, and Simone’s name is in the mix again:

Get ready to see Mr. T’s dancing skills!

The beloved professional wrestler and Olympic darling Simone Biles will both compete on season 24 of Dancing With the Stars, ABC confirms to ET.

“Production has been trying to get Mr. T to do the show for years!” a source close to the show’s production tells ET.. “He will be a great contestant this season.”

Mr. T, whose real name is Laurence Tureaud, has been absent from our TV screens since 2014, when he appeared in the TV movie, WrestleMania XXX. The 64-year-old actor has also stayed silent on social media since late December, when he wished everyone a “Blessed New Year.”

I can’t recall if we’ve seen his name as a rumor in the past, but it makes sense – he’s probably going to be this season’s nostalgic favorite.  As for who he’s partnered with, part of me thinks Sharna is probably due for a throwaway partner – although I think Witney could actually have a fun time with him.

As for Simone – call me a cynic, but if she’s on this season, we can pretty much just hand the trophy to whomever she’s partnered with.  But part of me is still a tad skeptical, because I’m having a hard time believing they’d cast Olympic gymnasts from the same team in back-to-back seasons.  Then again, America loves gymnasts.  If she is on, I’m calling foul if she isn’t paired with Sasha.

Trying to get myself psyched up about these rumors, but so far this season is leaving me pretty apathetic…

Producers Having No Trouble Completing The Roster For Dancing With The Stars Season 24

Apparently, the producers of Dancing With The Stars asked Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama to dance this season. As to no surprise, they said “no”. However, according to US Weekly, they aren’t having trouble filling out the roster…..

Despite a few snubs, producers are having no trouble completing the roster, says the show source. (The full list will be revealed on Good Morning America March 1.) One name near the top of the list: reality star Nick Viall. The former track star, 36, “is dying” to be the fourth Bachelor to bust a move in front of millions, says the source, adding, “it’s looking likely he’ll be on.”

Producers are rounding out the group “with a couple of movie stars who are showing interest,” says the show source. “They’re just trying to put together a good cast.”

No matter who’s competing, professional dancers Maks Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are ready to go for mirrorball silver. The parents of 7-week-old son Shai admit in the new issue of Us Weekly that they share a healthy rivalry.

While Murgatroyd, 30, who nabbed her second trophy with model Nyle DiMarco last May, tells Us, “I want to defend my title,” her husband-to-be, 37, might stand in her way. “This season is special because of Peta coming back,” he says. “I just want to support her and at the same time, maybe have some healthy competition in the family.”

For the full report, see US Weekly.

Would Olympic Gold Medalist Mary Lou Retton Do Dancing With The Stars?

AOL.com has a fun interview with Olympic Glod Medalist Mary Lou Retton. They ask her on Nature’s Bounty for the #DearFutureMe campaign that she’s heading up. They also ask if she’d ever do Dancing With The Stars. More below….

Speaking of Laurie [Hernandez], would you ever consider competing on “Dancing with the Stars”?

I’d love to! Are you kidding me? Represent the old group! I’m a big fan of the show. I’ve actually been asked, [but] with my schedule, I just couldn’t do it. If the timing is right, I would love to do it. Especially if there’s a gymnast on, of course we all support our family of gymnasts.

Do you have a pro that you would want to dance with?

I’m assuming they’re going to put me with one of the smaller ones, one of the shorter ones. I’m not picky!

Hmmm, maybe they will ask her to do Dancing With The Stars again? You never know. More at AOL.com.
