DWTS Season 22 Watchout: How about Carolina Panther Jonathan Stewart?

How about Jonathan Stewart of the Carolina Panthers for Dancing With The Stars? I say heck yeah. Even if Jonathan might be just goofing around, you never know if TPTB might make him an offer if they see this? Thanks to DWTSGossip for the fun find.

Teresa Giudice Turned Down Dancing With The Stars Season 22

I meant to post on this yesterday and got side tracked. Anyway, People is reporting Teresa Giudice was in talks to do Dancing With The Stars Season 22, but, she said no.

Teresa Giudice won’t be stepping onto the Dancing with the Stars stage.

A source tells PEOPLE that the Bravo star was in talks to be on the next season of the hit dance competition series but “she didn’t do it because she didn’t want to be away from her girls.”

“Her focus is family,” the source adds. “Her kids are in school and she would not have wanted to be away from them, even for a couple days a week. She sacrificed a nice paycheck to be home with her girls.”

A DWTS insider says no formal offer was ever made.

More at People. I have to say…I’m not too heart broke on this news.

John Stamos And Lori Loughlin Turn Down Dancing With The Stars

US Weekly finally posted the article about Jodi Sweetin dancing on the new season of Dancing With The Stars online which we posted about yesterday via the Daily Mail. Note too how they also report John Stamos and Lori Loughlin have turned down Dancing With The Stars. Dang…I love these two.

Stephanie Tanner is getting her turn in the spotlight. Fuller House’s Jodie Sweetin has signed on for season 22 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, an insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Less enthusiastic about hitting the ballroom: Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky. Says a source, “John Stamos and Lori Loughlin have turned down the show.”

DWTS Season 22 Rumor: Has Jodi Sweetin Signed On To Dance For Dancing With The Stars Season 22?

The Daily Mail via US Weekly is reporting Jodie Sweetin has signed on to dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 22. Oh, I hope this is true. She sounded very interested last season when Courtney talked with her. Remember this interview? If not, be sure to see it.

ETA: You can now see the US Weekly article here.

Better crack out those bright blue spandex leggings, because Stephanie Tanner is getting her chance to shine again.

With less than a month until Fuller House hits Netflix, it has been revealed Jodie Sweetin is about to have a very big 2016.

Us Weekly reports the 34-year-old has signed up to be part of the latest season of Dancing With The Stars.

An insider told the magazine that Jodie will be getting her ballroom on come March 21 when season 22 airs on ABC.

Jodie has danced since even before she even appeared on cult hit Full House and her character Stephanie was no stranger to busting out a move or two.

Very Random Celeb DWTS Mention – Could Taryn Manning Take Part in Season 22?

No idea, but as DWTSGossip noted, this is a very random mention of DWTS by a celebrity in the right time frame for casting for the next season. We’d be remiss if we didn’t post on it…just in case. 😉  Who is Taryn? Well, perfect for DWTS since I had to google her. 😀  And as soon as I did, I recognized her from a small, recurring role in Hawaii 5-0. She also stars in Orange is the New Black.  These two things make me thing she is unlikely…but I said the same thing about Amber Riley.  So, there you go.

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 22 Cast Rumors: Trisha Paytas…Possible Hint, or Just a Wannabe?

It’s still pretty damn early for the season 22 rumor mill to be churning out anything really significant, but this post from YouTube personality Trisha Paytas on Instagram yesterday gave me pause:

getting my workout in with @seanvanderwilt #DWTS #2016

A video posted by trishapaytas (@trishapaytas) on

My gut tells me she’s probably either just joking or is subtly trying to express interest in being on the show, but given that DWTS kinda branched out last season by tapping a Vine star like Hayes – is it really too far-fetched to assume that they might try to cast a YouTube personality within the next few seasons? Or that they might have reached out to a few already? Trisha’s been around for awhile, and has a large following – plus she’s put out some music on iTunes (and some accompanying music videos, which is most likely what she was rehearsing for here), has published several books, and has appeared on shows like America’s Got Talent, Dr. Phil, and My Strange Addiction…so she’s got a lot of irons in the fire.

That being said – the one potential caveat I can see with her in particular is that she’s refreshingly (at least in my opinion) open about her sex life, and the fact that she used to work in the sex industry.  Might not really jive well with the more conservative-leaning audience of DWTS.  Thoughts?

DWTS Season 22 Watch Out: Carolina Panthers Mike Tolbert Being Eyed??

Well, this is a stretch, but, being we learned last season that Alfonso Ribeiro is helping with casting for Dancing With The Stars, I thought it would be fun to post on the tweets below from he and Mike Tolbert of the Carolina Panthers. Apparently, Mike loves dancing and it’s something he takes seriously too. I wonder if he’d be up for Dancing With The Stars in the Spring? Would you like it if Mike danced? I think he’d be fun!

Tolbert is one of the league’s best fullbacks as well. He was voted to Pro Bowl for the second time in two years. What he can do as a runner, receiver out of the backfield and blocker is invaluable.

Dancing is just a hobby, but one he takes seriously.

Tolbert is just as likely to break out in dance during practice or in the locker room as he is after a touchdown.

“Tolbert takes the crown,” tight end Ed Dickson said. “He’s more outgoing. He’s willing to open up and do a dance in a split second. If you say let’s have a dance competition, he’s the one that would show his stuff.

“The rest of us would maybe shy away.”

DWTS Watch Out: Italia Ricci To Dance In Dancing With The Stars Season 22?

Check out this interesting tweet by ABC’s Chasing Life’s Italia Ricci. Is it possible she’s been asked to do the next season of dancing With The Stars….especially for how it’s worded? Not sure, but, we better put her on Watch Out! Thanks to Dee for the heads up!
