Olympic Equestrian Rider And Coach Jane Savoie Wants To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

Normally, we don’t really post a lot on celebrity campaigns, but, this lady sounds different and kind of interesting. According to the Equestrian Chronicle, Olympic equestrian rider and coach Jane Savoie wants to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Be sure to read how she came up with the idea to dance and why at Equestrian Chronicle. Below is a take for her message….

Savoie said she thinks it’s important for people to see that just because they’ve received their Medicare cards doesn’t mean that there’s not room for plenty more adventure in their lives, especially adventures as physically demanding as dancing.

She said that ballroom dancing isn’t all glittery sequins.

“There are hours and hours of sweaty practice behind the scenes,” she said.

“I started at 63. I’m 65 now,” she said. ”I think it’s encouraging for people that are in my age group who maybe have stopped dreaming to realize that there’s no expiration date on having a dream and going for it and staying fit and staying vibrant. I personally think it’s very encouraging when I see middle-aged and senior athletes just doing their things.”

Now that Savoie has sweated, practiced and competed, it’s time to impress the producers of “Dancing With the Stars.”

“They need to know that there is enough of a fan base within the horse industry because they’re not going to put someone on the show who doesn’t have a good following,” Savoie said. “I need people to like my Jane Savoie Dancing With the Stars Facebook page and share it with everyone.”

So, what do you think? Jane Savoie to dance? I say yes!!

DWTS Season 19 Watchout: Will Sara Evans Return To Dancing With The Stars?

Thanks to Nathan’s find via Codebear, we have our first casting rumor for Dancing With The Stars Season 19. It appears Sara Evans wants to give the show a go for a second time being she had to drop out the first time. She talks all about it on The View.

So, what do you think? Sara for Dancing With The Stars again? I wasn’t that wild about her the first time, so, I don’t know. :-?

PureDWTS Season 18 – POLL: Who’s Your Favorite Couple & Who Will Win?

So now that we know the couples, we want to know what YOU guys think.  So vote on your favorite couple and which couple you think will win…then tell us why :-) Vote away!

My favorite couple is Billy & Emma (because I love Emma, and #ifbillleavesweriot lives!!!) and I think Charlie & Sharna are the ones to beat this season – but Amy & Derek, Meryl & Maks, and possibly Cody & Witney or Danica & Val could give them a run for their money.  Will be interesting to see, for sure!

PureDWTS Season 18 Cast Announcement – LIVE BLOG!!!

It’s finally here, kids – after weeks of speculation about who’s dancing and who they’re dancing with, all questions will be answered in just a few short hours :-) This post is going up the night BEFORE the cast announcement, so be sure to bookmark it, as I will be posting all updates as they occur live on GMA on this post.

Before the fun begins, here are the ground rules:

1.) If you’re watching along and see that I haven’t posted something yet, DO NOT GO RUSHING INTO THE COMMENTS TO POST IT YOURSELF.  It takes time to update this site – especially during high traffic times like the cast announcement, and it only slows us down further when we have a bunch of people spamming the comments with the very same information we’re trying to update with in the main post.  If you do this, don’t be surprised if you find yourself on comment moderation.  You’ve been warned.

2.) Please do not refresh the page every 5 minutes and repeatedly post in the comments “Have we heard anything yet? Have they announced it yet???” When I say this page will be a live blog, it will be a LIVE BLOG – I literally post things as they happen…even the trivial time-wasting stuff that GMA has become famous for in the minutes leading up to the announcement.  If you don’t see it posted, IT HASN’T HAPPENED YET.  Remember – needless spamming & refreshing only slows the site down and delays us even further from posting.

3.) This goes without saying, but if you want to watch the cast announcement in your own time zone and want to be surprised – like, seriously, GTFO.  This is essentially a spoiler post – so if you don’t want spoilers, don’t read it.  Yes, circumstances have arisen in the past that make me feel like I should make this abundantly clear to our readers.  Don’t ask. :-P

Got it? Gooooood.  Now let’s play :-) I’d also like to give a shout-out to Heidi, who is tweeting simultaneously from our @puredwts Twitter account, and Vogue, who is manning the controls over at PureDerekHough and posting news and rumors here before and afterwards.  All Angels on deck – show us some love :-)

9:45 PM EST, night before the announcement: The carefully guarded cast list seems to have sprung several leaks today, as we were hit with a bunch of new names.  If you haven’t already, go check out our rumor round-up and interesting things on Twitter posts to refresh your memory on some of the rumored celebs.  At this point, the only celebs that I personally feel confident that they’re going to be on this season are Meryl, Charlie, NeNe, Drew, Cody, & Diana.  The rest? Could go either way.  As for the potential partnerships – the only thing I know for sure is that Derek is NOT dancing with Meryl.  Please, Derek + Meryl partnership-wishers, get all of the whining out of your systems tonight…because I ain’t gonna have time for it come tomorrow morning. So which celebrities do you guys think are in? And who do you think they’re dancing with? T minus 9 hours till all is revealed :-)

7:00 AM EST: I’m up, I’m up – and so is Tom, who is flanked by Jenna & Lindsay from the troupe. Sasha & Artem are also there, entertaining the audience. They are going to announce both the celebs & the partnerships. Stay tuned…

7:22 AM EST: Nothing so far…but here’s the best pic I could get of Sasha & Jenna jiving to “Happy”:

jennasashajive

7:32 AM EST: Our first clues from Lara: one celeb may be “racing” to the win, and another “may have the force behind him”. Sounds like she’s referring to Diana & Billy Dee.

7:40 AM EST:In case you wanted to know some other current events: Oscar Pistorius is on trial, Robin Thicke is trying to win his wife back, and it’s pretty effin’ cold pretty much everywhere except Florida. Zzzzzzz.

7:46 AM EST We’re allegedly “moments away” from the announcement. We’ve been moments away since 7:00…apparently GMA & I have different definitions for the term “moment”.

8:00 AM EST: Robin said that they have a “full house” over in LA. So clever, those GMA anchors :::roll::: And the “is Derek back? Is Maks back?” has started.

8:01 AM EST Lara’s next corny clue? One celeb “knows how to score…goals”. Probably Sean Avery. I find it hilarious that they really haven’t let Erin talk yet. Who wants some king cake? Don’t chip your tooth on the plastic baby, Robin. I speak from experience. :-P

8:07 AM EST: 10 minutes till the big reveal!

8:18 AM EST: Here we go! Your season 18 celebrities are: Danica McKellar, Cody Simpson, Billy Dee Williams, Diana Nyad, James Maslow, Sean Avery, Drew Carey, Candace Cameron-Bure, Charlie White, Meryl Davis…and that’s it. I’m thinking Derek’s partner is getting revealed at a later date…Robin confirms this.

8:31 AM EST: And the partnerships are: Danica & Val, Cody & Witney, Billy Dee & Emma (love it), Diana & Henry, NeNe & Tony, James & Peta, Sean & Karina, Drew & Cheryl, Candace & Mark, Charlie & Sharna, and Meryl &…MAKS?! Twelfth celeb is Paralympic snowboarder Amy Purdy, partnered with Derek.

8:37 AM EST: BIG twist this season: at some point in the competition, all the partnerships are going to switch – and America’s going to do the voting. Bet ya anything Maks loses Meryl as a result. Well kids, I’m kinda over thing trying to update this post when I keep getting kicked out of the dashboard…and I have to go to work. Catch you later…discuss amongst yourselves. :-)

11:05 AM EST: Went ahead and put together the height chart for the couples…just cause.  Note that one couple has a much greater height difference than the rest…11″ compared to most other couples being only about 6″ or less in difference.  Just throwing that out there, for the good of the order…why do you think that might be? Discuss. ;-)

NeNe Leakes 5ft. 10in. 6ft. 1in. Tony
Meryl Davis 5ft. 3in. 6ft. 2in. Maks
Candace Cameron-Bure 5ft. 2in. 5ft. 8in Mark
Amy Purdy 5ft. 8in. 5ft. 10in. Derek
Danica McKellar 5ft. 4in. 5ft. 8in. Val
Diana Nyad 5ft. 6in. 5ft. 10.5in. Henry
Drew Carey 5ft. 10in. 5ft. 4in. Cheryl
Sean Avery 5ft. 10in 5ft. 5in. Karina
James Maslow 6ft. 1in. 5ft. 7in. Peta
Charlie White 5ft. 9in. 5ft. 5in. Sharna
Billy Dee Williams 6ft. 0in. 5ft. 5in. Emma
Cody Simpson 5ft. 11in. 5ft. 5in. Witney

DWTS Season 18 Rumors: Tim Tebow, Ray Lewis, and Stuart Scott??

Hollywood Life has been known to get a few of their rumors right and sometimes not. Anyway, check out what they are reporting on Sean Avery (who we’ve reported about before), Tim Tebow (rumored in Season 14), Ray Lewis (now there is a name we haven’t heard yet) and Stuart Scott (another new name).

Sean won’t be the only athlete competing on season 18 – Tim Tebow and Ray Lewis have also been asked, HollywoodLife.com has learned.

Tim, who was the quarterback for the New York Jets and the Denver Broncos, does have a good amount of free time, so it’d be surprising if he passed. Ray is a famous Baltimore Ravens alum who we’d also love to take the dance floor. Also on the list is ESPN analyst Stuart Scott, who could talk us through it all!

More at Hollywood Life including names we’ve already reported about…Bruce Jenner, Sharon Osbourne, Juan Pablo Galavis, Cody Simpson, Kelly Brook, and Carla Hall. Let us know what you think!

Also, if you haven’s seen our new twitter findings, be sure you read this post too if you haven’t yet. It’s a must read!

Russell Wilson has been asked and wants to do Dancing With The Stars at some point, but, not this season. He wants to concentrate on his football career. He says positive things on Erin Andrews as well. From Access Hollywood….

More Hints Meryl Davis And Charlie White Are Dancing On DWTS Season 18

More and more this sounds like a “go” especially with @DWTSgossips new hints as well? If true though, who will be their partners? I hope Derek and Emma or Sharna!!

PureDWTS Season 18 Cast Watch: Interesting Things on Twitter/Instagram

So I know I’ve warned you guys not to read too far into who follows who on Twitter – but that’s exactly what I’m going to do right now.  :-P Do as I say, not as I do, kids! But for what it’s worth, in the past, we have been able to deduce some partnerships based on who the pros and/or rumored celebs recently started following on Twitter – and in season 11, we had a negligent casting director to thank for inadvertently spoiling the entire cast by following all of them of Twitter mere days before the announcement.  So what interesting stories might Twitter tell about this season’s celebs? Keep an eye on this page, as we may update it if some other interesting followings occur between now and the cast announcement…which we will be live blogging starting Tuesday morning, hint hint ;-)

Things to keep in mind: the pros and celebs have gotten much, much more careful than they’ve been in previous seasons – they know we’re watching Twitter, so they aren’t likely to do something as dumb as each following their partner mere days before the cast announcement.  But they do slip-up from time to time, which is where we come in.  Keep in mind as well that the pros and celebs could have met in a capacity unrelated to the show – just because they’re following each other, does not mean they’re partnered together. Or that the celeb is doing DWTS :-P Read more..

Cheryl Burke Talks About DWTS On The Bethenny Show, Bethenny Wants To Dance With Maks (Videos)

Today Cheryl Burke’s appearance was aired on the Bethenny Show. Keep in mind as you watch this coverage that this interview was recorded about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks ago. Note in the 4th video, Bethenny talks of her dream partners if she were to do Dancing With The Stars! She said she would definitely do the show if Maks Chmerkovskiy were to come back. Hmmm….
