I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

Julianne and Derek Hough To Return For Dancing With The Stars Season 23

READ ALL ABOUT IT AT E ONLINE!!! Here’s a take…

We’ll have double the Chmerkovskiys on Dancing With the Stars this season, and also double the Houghs because both Derek and Julianne Hough are returning to the show for its upcoming 23rd season.

E! News has learned that the Hough siblings are both heading back to the ballroom—Derek as a pro and Julianne once again as a judge. ABC does not comment on casting for the show, but the full celeb lineup will be revealed on Good Morning America on Tuesday.

Who Do You Think is DWTS Season 23 Artem Chigvinstev’s Partner – How About Maureen McCormick?

The Dancing With The Stars instagram account teased on Artem Chigvinstev’s partner. Read below. Do you have some guesses? A fan named Kennedy wrote and said they think it’s Maureen McCormick. I looked up the hints and it’s true for how these hints fit. This Brady Bunch star has been on my wish list forever. I’d love to see her dance. So, what do you think in helping us to put it together and do you have other guesses that fit?

Hint: @theartemc's partner is a published author, released a country album, and started acting when she was 9! Who is she? #DWTS

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. :-)

The DWTS Season 23 Rumor Mill Grinds It’s Way Back To Ryan Lochte

As we reported eons ago…only only a week or so…Ryan Lochte is back in consideration as a DWTS Season 23 contestant. People.com says it’s because of his Rio controversy. Would not surprise me at all….

Ryan Lochte is in talks to join the celebrities competing on season 23 of Dancing with the Stars, a source tells PEOPLE.

While the cast of the latest edition of the reality competition series has yet to be announced and ABC does not comment on casting reports, the source says Lochte may be among the front-runners.

The news comes shortly after Lochte, 32, ignited controversy by fabricating a details about being robbed during his time at the Rio Olympics in August.

“I’ve been thinking about it a lot, because I have a big heart, and I feel like let down a lot of people,” Lochte told PEOPLE on Wednesday. “I feel bad that I have let people down.”

PureDWTS Season 23 Cast Rumors & Watchout: Random Sh*t That’s Cropping Up on Twitter

First of all, thank you to everyone that has tweeted us with heads-up on stuff you’ve seen – we really do appreciate it, especially since the 3 of us do have regular jobs that prevent us from monitoring Twitter 24-7.  You guys have sent us some pretty interesting finds, but it’s getting to the point where we’ve gotten so many “Hmmm, that’s interesting, but is it really worthy of its own post?” type-things that I feel as though this post is necessary to keep track of what’s going down on Twitter.  I will probably add to it in the coming days as more stuff comes up.

First up, an interesting tweet from Ashley Tisdale – thanks @IAmKimmieHo for pointing out to me:

ashleytweet

It could be DWTS, it could be something else entirely – who knows.  But the timing is about right for DWTS (according to a source, they still are working to cast this season), and she did show up to support Corbin in season 17.  Plus – is she really up to much now? Wasn’t High School Musical like, 10 years ago? UPDATE: She says it’s not DWTS.  Oh well.

In another interesting turn, both Sasha & Emma seemed to be happily tweeting about something that happened yesterday – thanks @juliadelbel for pointing this out:

sashatweet

emmatweet2

Not sure what to make of these – seems to indicate that SOMETHING happened to them yesterday.  Did they get engaged? Did they get told they would both be on this season? Did they find out they got awesome partners? Who the hell knows. But it’s interesting.

UPDATE, 8/24, 2:47 PM EST: Man, I gotta admire Heidi’s keen eye on this one – I’m usually the one paying close attention to the female pros’ nails.  So this Snap just got posted to the DWTS Snapchat (which I am told old & unhip to keep up with)…

Don’t those nails look awfully similar to the ones Jojo is sporting in this Instagram pic? Discuss.

Welcome to Dallas babe ☺️ @jrodgers11 #sorryitssohot

ETA: Heidi here with a weird ass photo seen on twitter not long ago. No, we don’t know what it means. And no, it’s not why I was “sighing” on twitter. 😀 Discuss.
