PureDWTS Season 25 Casting Rumors & Watchout: Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay Says “Never Say Never!”

As has become par for the course with DWTS, the most recent Bachelor/Bachelorette’s names are being tossed around as possible rumors for the next season.  We first reported Rachel’s name being in the mix back in February, pre-season 24.  In an interview with E!, Rachel talked about not being interested in joining Real Housewives of Dallas (“I kind of don’t want my personal life to be out there so much”) but seemed a bit more on-the-fence about DWTS:

While we do think Rachel would make an amazing Housewife, we understand the need to just focus on being out in the open with her fiancé (Bryan, Eric or Peter) after having to keep their engagement a secret for the last couple of months.
But just because the lawyer isn’t down to join RHOD doesn’t mean that she is opposed to doing another reality show, telling us, “Never say never!”
Of course, previous Bachelors and Bachelorettes have gone on to compete on Dancing With the Stars, including the most recent Bachelor Nick Viall, but Rachel admitted she would be a little hesitant to sign up for the ABC reality competition.
“I don’t know about Dancing With the Stars,” she said.I do love to dance. I’m a never say never-type person, so we’ll see!”
As much as I usually roll my eyes at Bachelor castings on DWTS, I would actually kind of love to see Rachel on the show – especially after Kaitlyn Bristowe spilled the tea on her own DWTS casting mess from a few years ago. I think she’d be a good partner for Artem or Gleb to really shine with.
Thoughts?

PureDWTS Conspiracy Theory – Have We Finally Figured Out What Happened with the Casting in Season 21???

It’s been a year and a half, but there’s been a little itch in the back of my brain that I haven’t quite been able to scratch: what exactly happened in season 21 that led to Artem sitting the season out? Especially after he was confirmed as a pro for the season, initially? Well, 18 months later, it appears we finally have enough information to piece together a cohesive theory for what went down.  I’m finally getting to scratch that little itch 🙂

First off, a special thanks to Colleen for pointing out the line in Heather’s blog that set all of this in motion, because Heidi, Vogue, & myself often get so caught up in actually getting stuff posted for you guys that we don’t actually thoroughly process everything we read, especially if it’s a one-off sentence here and there.  Also thanks to Laura & Kimmie for helping to locate the old Val tweets, and anyone who bounced ideas off me on Twitter after some of these tidbits came to light. So let’s dive right in… Read more..

PureDWTS Season 24 – Jenna Johnson Taking a Season Off

Jenna fans asking if she’s gonna be in the troupe, I think you just got your answer:


Given that things on the pro front seem really, really strange this season, I don’t really know whether this was really her choice or is coming from someone higher up.  She seems upbeat, though, so I wish her the best and hope she gets what she needs out of her break.

Singer Ashlee Simpson Declines Offer To Do Dancing With The Stars Season 24

US Weekly is reporting on the current rumors for Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Among those we already know about, note how singer-actress Ashlee Simpson (Jessica’s sister) said “no” to dancing this season. Sad…I would have liked her to dance. Maybe she will do so in another season?

Sources previously confirmed to Us that other cast members on the latest edition of ABC’s venerable competition series will include figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, The A-Team star Mr. T, gymnast Simone Biles and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Erika Girardi. Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Ashlee Simpson politely declined offers to show off their fancy footwork.

PureDWTS Season 24 – Kaitlyn Bristowe Goes On Twitter Rant, Claims She Was Told She “Wasn’t Allowed” to do DWTS

Not a casting rumor, but I found this interesting enough to be considered relevant to the current season.  Since I’m assuming Kaitlyn just found out that Nick Viall was confirmed to be a part of this season’s cast, I’m assuming what follows in in response…

So, in light of some conversations Heidi & I have been having recently about the subtle sexism we’ve seen on DWTS, I find this exchange quite interesting.  Granted, it was the creator of The Bachelor that allegedly told Kaitlyn she couldn’t do DWTS, but it still makes me wonder if DWTS has even bothered to reach out to any former Bachelorettes to extend an offer. Including Nick, we’ve now had FOUR former Bachelors on the show (Jake Pavelka, Sean Lowe, & Chris Soules being the other three), and only 1.5 Bachelorettes (Trista Sutter & Melissa Rycroft, who wasn’t even a Bachelorette – and she was a last-minute casting to replace Nancy O’Dell).  Even if it was a timing issue (Bachelorette tapes in the spring to air in the summer, Bachelor tapes in the summer to air in the fall) it still seems odd that they’ve never booked a Bachelorette on the fall season, when there wouldn’t be a conflict.

But really, if this is true, the reasoning Fleiss gave really chaps my ass – especially when you consider that Jake and Nick, in particular, were totally looking to extend their 15 minutes of fame by doing DWTS, and made no secret about it. I think it may have been more of a monetary thing for Sean & Chris, but still – they answered the call. I’m sure this dude will deny & deflect that the conversation ever happened, but I’d really love to hear his explanation for why it’s ok for Bachelors to “get famous off his show” and not Bachelorettes.  All ears, baby 😎 Read more..

PureDWTS Season 24 – The Rumor Leaks Continue: Charo & Bonner Bolton?

Can barely catch my breath here…apparently legendary actress & comedian Charo is also dancing this season, as is model/professional bull rider Bonner Bolton, per People:

Another insider tells PEOPLE that Erika Girardi (a.k.a. Erika Jayne) of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is set to take the stage on the hit dancing show, as will 65-year-old actress and comedian Charo, and professional bull rider and model Bonner Bolton.

I think Charo could be a hoot, but if she’s paired with Artem (and that’s who I’m leaning towards), I think it might be a buzzkill. As for Bonner – never heard of him.  Which probably doesn’t bode well, unless this dude has a TON of natural dance skill.

Thoughts?
