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….

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 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.

New Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay To Dance On Dancing With The Stars Season 24 Or Another Season?

I never know what to think of the Dancing With The Stars rumors from Hollywood Life. This time, the inconsistent (in other words, take this with a grain of salt) online tabloid is reporting Rachel Lindsay (the new bachelorette) is going to dance on Dancing With The Stars at some point. Let us know what you think if true and don’t forget to head to the link to read the full rumor.

We’re going to be seeing a lot of gorgeous Rachel Lindsay in the coming months. In addition to her search for a husband as the next Bachelorette, the 31-year-old will also be on the hunt for a Mirrorball trophy! The Dallas attorney is going to be following in the footsteps of many other Bachelor and Bachelorette stars by competing on an upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. “Within the next two seasons of DWTS, producers with the show and ABC are trying to lock down what season she will do. They want to take advantage of all the positive press they expect from it all, but are just weighing the pros and cons of doing it early or not,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Is it possible Ashley Benson is going to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 24? Just Jared Jr. has had their eye on the “Pretty Little Liar’s” actress since she started following Mark Ballas on instagram. She would make a great choice if something might be in the works.

Hugh Grant Thinks Dancing With The Stars Is “Superb”, But, Probably Wouldn’t Dance

In an older interview Hugh Grant said he’d love to do Dancing With The Stars as he thinks the show is “superb”, but, he probably wouldn’t. Instead he’d like to dance in an up coming movie “Wall On Drugs”. Could he change his mind? I doubt it, but, it’s fun to think about getting a big name like this.

DWTS Cheryl Burke And Witney Carson Attend iHeart80s Party , Past Rumored Celeb Ricky Shroder Pictured With Witney

Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke and Witney Carson attended the iHeart80s Party and looking so cute. Also, note how Ricky Shroder was pictured with Witney. As regulars to the site know, he’s been asked to dance in the past. My juices are flowing. What I’d give for him to say “yes” if they asked him to dance again this season. I love the idea of him dancing with Witney too. Click on the photos to see more photos if interested.

Army Staff Sgt. Jose Medina Mentions Dancing With The Stars On Sunday Fox And Friends

Did you happen to see this beautiful inaugural dance in honor of the Military Service? Well, this morning on Sunday Fox And Friends, Army Staff Sgt. Jose Medina (who danced with First Lady Melania Trump) said he’s hoping this was his Dancing With The Stars debut. He was just joking, but, I got the impression he’d love to dance on the show and I love the thought of it. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Catherine Cartmell (who danced with our new President) would be a good one too. What do you think?
