Buffalo Bill Meets Dancing with the Stars? Rumor Patrol

Technically, @DWTSGossip beat me to this one. :-) It would not surprise me if he ends up on the show this season – we had no NFL last season, did we?? Anyway, from Erin Kelly’s Twitter:

Jim Kelly on DWTS

Thoughts?? Seems like a nice guy, but I know nothing about him.

ETA: Erin says her dad declined because he needs to “continue to recover.” He recently finished his chemo treatments for cancer.

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. :-)

DWTS Season 19 Rumor: Wrestler James Storm To Dance?

Hmmmm, isn’t this an intriguing tweet from pro wrestler James Storm?!! He posted this…

Just arrived for my meeting with ABC. These boots are made for dancing not walking.

Below is a screen capture in case it disappears…

He could also be doing something else like doing a Disney Character role as he also posted this tweet. LOL to putting “a little redneck in Disney”.

So, what do you think if dancing on Dancing With The Stars is something in the making? I think it would be a total hoot. I can kind of see him with Sharna! Let us know what you think.

“The Walking Dead” Alum Vincent M. Ward Campaigning Hard To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

The “Walking Dead’s” Vincent Ward is campaigning to be on Dancing With The Stars. Take a look at his twitter page when you get a chance. It’s full of the hashtag: #VincentMWardDWTSSeason19!! Normally, we don’t post on many campaigns, but, I’m starting to wonder on this one as it just gives a person that “feeling”. The Examiner asked him more about it. Read below….

Ward’s Twitter page is home base to a slew of impassioned tweets directed to the official “DWTS” account. Nearly all of the messages ask producers to include him as part of the fall 2014 cast. Even Ward is taking part in the effort being made on his behalf, posting creative images of his own that feature his head atop various dancers’ bodies along with the tag “#vincentmwardDWTSSeason19.” The most heavily retweeted image features Ward standing in front of red text that features the #vincentmwardDWTSSeason19 hashtag as well as the show’s name.

When asked by Examiner to explain his desire to compete, Ward’s answer was a simple one. “[D]ancing with my 1st love when I was younger,” he tweeted. Although he had no preference when it came to which female pro he might join on the dance floor, he expressed admiration for season 18 winner Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s “style and charisma.” He also named reality star Jack Osbourne, actor Jaleel White, rapper Lil Kim, and NFL legend Jerry Rice as his favorite former contestants.

I think he’d be a good one for Cheryl or Karina. Heidi, what do you think? Could this be someone we better watch out for?

Heidi: Campaigners RARELY make it on to the show, and I don’ t see this time as being any exception to that rule. And if he’s trying too hard to get on to the show, odds are that he’ll try too hard when he’s ON the show. So, my initial vote is a “no”. :-)

DWTS Season 19 Rumor: Shania Twain, Ashley Gold, Landon Donovan, Tim Howard To Dance?

Wow, Shania Twain? What I’d give to see this new rumor was true? Here are a couple of excerpts from USA Today and Hollywood Life talking about. Be sure to read both links to investigate some more.

We probably shouldn’t get too excited. But Shania Twain did a Facebook chat earlier this week and a fan asked if she would ever do Dancing With the Stars.

Her answer: “I’d consider it!”

So, ABC, there you go. Give the country star a call!

Plus, a source tells HollywoodLife.com that the chances of Shania joining the cast are pretty strong.

“Those at DWTS are very confident that Shania Twain will join the show in its next season,” a source reveals to us EXCLUSIVELY. “She is very, very, very close to signing on the show.”

Also, below are some other rumors from Hollywood Life. A few of them we’ve before. I say, bring them on too. What do you think?

Rumors are swirling that Ashley Gold, L.A. Galaxy star Landon Donovan and goalkeeper Tim Howard might join Season 19 of DWTS as well — this could be one incredible season!

Thanks to Vin for the Hollywood Life link!

DWTS19 Watchout: Kandi Burruss or Another Bravo Star To Dance??

Not sure if there is anything to this speculation from LaLate. They mention Kandi Burruss and some other celebs from Bravo for the next season of Dancing With The Stars…

Is Kandi Burruss joining Dancing with the Stars next season? While Kandi, ABC and BravoTV have yet to comment which Bravolebrity, if any, could be joining DWTS next season, at the moment it would seem likely that Kandi would be the likely Bravolebrity frontrunner followed by Kyle Richards and either Vicki Gunvalson or Tamra Barney.

ABC’s DWTS castings took a turn several seasons ago when the show casted Lisa Vanderpump as its first BravoTV star. The RHOBH & Pump Rules star at the time had one of the digital footprints on social media of any Bravo personality. In fact, Lisa’s appearance played a major storyline in the last RHOBH season with the “fake fainting” debate. Vanderpump has admitted to news that NeNe Leakes often calls her for advice on housewives shows. And shortly around the same time, Leakes inked her spot on DWTS, the second Bravolebrity to date.

DWTS19 Rumor And Watchout: Soccer Player Tim Howard To Dance?

First, Landon Donovan and now another soccer player named Tim Howard is rumored to dance in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Hollywood Life reports that producers have an eye on him. What’s more, Cheryl Burke says she wants to dance him.

“Everyone saw Tim get his hands on almost everything during the World Cup game against Belgium and now Dancing wants to get his hands on one of the dancers,” a source connected to the show tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

One dancer in particular is already eager to parter with Tim!

“Cheryl Burke is the frontrunner if Tim joins the show,” our source reveals. “She wants to dance with him and once the holiday passes, he will 100 percent be asked to join the show.” So exciting!

More at Hollywood Life.

What do you think if true? I don’t know who he is, but, I’m ok with it. I think he would look good dancing with Cheryl as well.

DWTS Season 19 Rumor And Watchout: Andi Dorfman And Her Mr. Right To Dance? (Bachelorette Spoiler)

According to Hollywood Life, The Bachelorette’s Andi Dorfman might dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 19. Not only that, whoever she chooses to marry on The Bachelorette might dance as well. More below and note that this isn’t the first time we’ve had a Bachelorette rumor this season. We’re keeping a small eye on Courtney Robertson as well.

Things are heating up as Andi Dorfman, 27, continues to search for love each week on The Bachelorette. We’ve already revealed who will win the reality show, and now a source tells us Andi and the winner will appear on another reality show, competing against each other — the next season of Dancing With The Stars!

Andi Dorfman & Josh Murray On ‘Dancing With The Stars’: Will Compete In Season 19

Andi and Josh’s journey has gone from making out in Paris to falling in love super fast to shaking it on the dance floor! “She’s been asked and is also preparing to do the next season of the show,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about Andi appearing on Dancing With The Stars.

“And there has been talk that she is going to do it with her man. They will compete against each other along with the other stars,” our source reveals. How exciting! After Josh steals Andi’s heart and ultimately proposes at the end of the season, it’ll be amazing to see the couple competing on such a fun show!

While Andi’s season airs, the star’s secretly prepping herself to win the mirror ball trophy! Could the upcoming competition be another reason she quit her job as Assistant D.A. at the Fulton County District Attorney’s office.

So, what do you think if true? I’m not sure what to think, but, I don’t think I really want anymore people from The Bachelor or the Bachelorette shows.

Heidi: Andi seems like an okay chick and so does her betrothed…but no thanks. Seriously, the producers got the perfect mix of people last season and nary a reality person to be seen. The ratings showed it. In any case, if Andi does show up it will be because they couldn’t get someone else they wanted. Kinda like Courtney said she could have been an alternate.

Rumor: Landon Donovan Or Another Soccer Player To Compete In DWTS Season 19?

Will Landon Donovan or another soccer player dance In Dancing With The Stars Season 19? According to Hollywood Life, this might be a possibility? Note how Landon was rumored to dance in Season 11 as well by the same source. Like then, I think they are taking a bit of gamble …not that I would be against it. He might make a great pairing with Karina? What do you think if true?

“They have wanted Landon forever for the show,” a Dancing With The Stars insider EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “Now that everyone is having World Cup fever and Landon was left off the team…they want him to win another trophy — the Mirror Ball trophy.”

We don’t blame the network! Athletes have a great track record for winning on the show! Landon, 32, is considered to be one of the best American soccer players off all time so who says he won’t be just as good when it comes to tangoing?

HollywoodLife.com has also learned that if Landon declines the offer, ABC still wants a soccer hunk to join the dancing duos.

“They are putting the full court press on getting him this time and will also reach out to anyone from the U.S. team that makes a name for themselves in the next month,” the insider adds. “They are very interested in making it finally happen. What better time then now?”

DWTS Season 19 Watch Out: Courtney Robertson To Dance?

Courtney Robertson has a new book coming out soon that mentions she was once considering doing Dancing With The Stars when she was engaged to Ben Flajnik. However, she turned the show down since Ben didn’t approve. Below is more from Reality TV World. Kind of makes one wonder on whether she’d still do Dancing With The Stars now since they eventually broke up? Thoughts? Look for Heidi’s thoughts after you read this quote….

I had a secret meeting with the producers of Dancing with the Stars and they wanted me as an alternate, just in case anyone got hurt. The payday was incredible: $125,000 just to show up and $30,000 for every week I made it through. Cha-ching!” Robertson wrote in her upcoming memoir, I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends — Confessions of a Reality Show Villain Courtney Robertson.

“‘They offered it to you?’ he asked incredulously. I noted a tinge of jealousy. I hadn’t even thought about this kind of stuff yet and how it would affect our relationship. I was just excited the opportunity was there.”

“‘If you do it,’ he added coldly, ‘you won’t have a fiance.'”

“I felt like I’d been punched in the gut,” Robertson wrote in an advance copy of the memoir obtained by Reality TV World.

“I can’t believe you’d even bring it up,’ Ben growled, even more pissed off.”

“This was not a good start,” the former bachelorette continued.

“I dropped the conversation and ultimately dropped out of the potential Dancing with the Stars casting, even though we could have bought our first house together with that money. Instead we spent the first three months of our public engagement staying in his frat house of an apartment when I’d visit.”

Heidi: I believe she probably was considered as an alternate at the time – she was a rather controversial “winner” of the Bachelor and got a lot of people talking. But the Bachelor/Bachelorette contestants have a VERY short shelf life and I doubt very much that she would make the cut today – unless her book is a huge best seller. I read a review of it on RealitySteve.com and it sounded kinda interesting, if only to see what kind of crap goes on behind the scenes on that show. Anyway, since she was considered back then only as an alternate, I doubt she would make it even that far today.
