DWTS Season 18 Rumors!! Naya Rivera and Cassie

Hmmm….really?? I am skeptical.   From GWL magazine:

First up is the beautiful and newly-engaged Naya Rivera, who is rapper Big Sean’s fiancee’ and most known for her role as Santana Lopez on FOX musical drama, Glee. Although Naya has yet to confirm or deny the news, the source confirms she’s “very excited about this opportunity” as she prepares to release her debut solo album this Spring and currently planning her wedding.

We also hear that singer and model Cassie Ventura will be shaking her tail-feather on the show this season. An inside source tells Star Magazine that “Cassie loves to dance” and, although she has actually passed on a similar opportunity in the past, she is now ready to join the new season of the show.

 

Naya Rivera is Amber’s cast mate at Glee and would undoubtedly be good…but two Glee stars in a row? Would not surprise me, but I think it’s important to remind people that rumors that come out this early are usually just that…RUMORS. They usually turn out wrong. But with her coming out with a new album in the spring??

As for Cassie – never heard of her before, but maybe that’s a good reason for her to do the show.  Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up.

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 Pro Watchout: Blake McGrath To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Could the producers be thinking of asking Blake McGrath to dance on Dancing With The Stars…or maybe they did already?? OR maybe this is just a campaign? We’ll let you decide!! Last night, Blake posted the instagram below with the caption, “Who thinks I should join the professionals on “Dancing With The Stars” next season? If you think so type #blakefordancingabc @dancingabc #tbt #sytycd1 #samba”. If you’d like to read up on Blake, visit this link. Note that along with being a singer, Blake has also been on “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Dance Life”. He’s also danced with greats like Madonna, Britney Spears, and Janet Jackson to name a few. So what do you think? Blake to dance? I say…YES depending on who he’d replace. A definite yes to replace Tony or to be on the Troupe!! Thanks to Elmari for sending us this news.

DWTS Season 18…Rumor?? Cody Simpson Says He’s Been Invited to Dance

What do you call it when some Australian dude claims that DWTS invited him to be on the show in March?? He says it’s when he’s going to be in LA to work on his next album. Um…okay….who are you again? :-D Cody Simpson Website and Cody Simpson Wiki.  Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the heads up on this one….like, hours ago. Hey, me and Vogue were both Xmas shopping, working and generally living life. Sue us. ;-)

Watch Out: Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss Wants To Dance On DWTS

Thanks to Vin for sending us this “watch out”. Apparently, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss would love to dance on Dancing With The Stars! Below is more from Enstarz…

One of the stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta might be appearing on the next season of Dancing With the Stars if she gets her way.

Kandi Burruss, who is one of the current cast members on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is interested in appearing as a contestant on season 18 of Dancing With the Stars.

One of Burruss’ followers on Twitter asked her, “Sis, would [you] ever do DWTS??” to which she responded, “”I would love to.”

Considering Burruss has previous musical experience as part of the R&B group Xscape, she may be a perfect fit for the show. Younger singers have traditionally done well on the show, such as Nicole Scherzinger and Kellie Pickler.

So, what do you think? Would you like to see Kandi dance?

DWTS18 Rumor: Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi Practicing Moves For Dancing With The Stars Season 18?

Yesterday, The Shahs Of Sunset’s Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, posted the instagram below with a quote that said, “Practicing my moves with @cherylburke for Dancing With The Stars! I’m not quite sure what I’m doing here but it’s better than my twerking! #Shahs #GG #DWTS #GreatNight #GettingOurGrooveOn #Fart“. I kinda think she just meant this randomly, but, hey, you never know right? Enstarz and Celeb Dirty Laundry (thanks Vin!) have also picked up on the story drawing further attention to it. Really….who is she? I’ve never heard of her?

DWTS18 Watchout: “Pretty Little Liars” Shay Mitchell?

Steph, one of our readers, sent us some news about Val Chmerkovksiy that sounded interesting and something we may need to keep a watch on. Is it possible he is trying to recruit Shay Mitchell of “Pretty Little Liars” or could something be in the works for her to dance? We’ll let you read on further for what she sent us.

He did a twitter Q&A on Friday and someone asked his ideal partner, and Val being Val was of course a little cheeky about it and said: “She pretty, little, and don’t tell the truth ;)” AKA Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars. Backtracking slightly, he tweeted to Shay a few weeks ago “It’s already choreographed”. He wasn’t responding to her and she never replied so there is really no context for what his tweet meant. I know he started following her on Twitter after she came to see Brant perform though.

From her side, she posted on IG after her season wrapped that she had something new in the works she was excited about and the comments were all about her doing DWTS. Shortly after she took it down from IG.

It could be nothing, it could be Val trying to recruit her, it could be Val has a celeb crush (lol), but still, just wanted to let you know to be on the lookout. I honestly don’t think she would be able to do it with her shooting schedule but who knows.

THANKS Steph and good eye!!x

DWTS Season 18 Rumor: Will Renee Zellweger Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Who knows how true this new rumor is. Though you know us, we can’t ignore anyone. Below is more from Showbiz Spy about the possibility of Renee Zellweger dancing on Dancing With The Stars.

“The producers are fixated on Renee, in part because she hasn’t done much dancing at all since Chicago more than ten years ago and there’s this real mystery about her and what she’s up to.

“They keep raising the amount of money they are willing to give her in the hopes that she’ll say yes, and the theory is that if they can get her to sign on, then it would attract some other really prominent Oscar winning stars — who wouldn’t normally do reality TV — to fall in step.

“Now that the rule that stars had to be total dance novices has been broken, it opens the door wide for someone like Renee, who hoofed it in Chicago, to strut her stuff.

“The DWTS masterminds think the idea of having a theme of Oscar winners would be a sure ratings-grabber.

“And it would be the perfect springtime ABC tie-in because the network already controls the rights to the Academy Awards show.”

So, what do you think? Do you like the idea of Renee dancing? I’m not a big fan, but, she’d be cool to get!!

ETA: Below is some Hollyscoop news on this…

DWTS Season 18 Rumor: Tori Spelling To Dance So She Can Rehab Image?

According to Radar Online, Tori Spelling is interested in doing the show so she can rehab her image. Below is more from the link. Note: this isn’t the first time this rumor has circulated. In Season 16, Tori was rumored to be thinking about doing Dancing With The Stars as well.

Producers of DWTS have approached the former 90210 star “to appear on the show in the past, but she has always declined because of other various projects Tori was working on,” a source told Radar.

“Tori has now decided to make herself available and wants to appear on the upcoming season which is scheduled to begin in March 2014. The main reason Tori wants to go on is to rehab her image in the aftermath of the fallout from her book. She doesn’t want the public to think she goes around picking on Katie Holmes and Martha Stewart.”

You can read more at Radar Online about her book, etc.

So, what do you think? Tori Spelling for Dancing With The Stars Season 18?

RUMOR: Is Kelly Brook Thinking Of Dancing On Dancing With The Stars Season 18?

Is model and actress Kelly Brook thinking of doing Dancing With The Stars? It might be nothing, but, Kelly was seen in the audience last night sitting behind the judges panel. Apparently, Derek Hough was able to get her tickets. Contact Music also reported a while back that she was hinting at doing the “next series” and that she still had dreams of winning some day. Interesting too is that Kelly was seen pictured with Derek at his Hooray Henry Halloween party a few weeks ago (instagram below). Not sure how strong this rumor is…but, it’s interesting to wonder on never the less? Thanks to John for sending us the Contact Music link. I’d love this if it were to happen. What do you think?
