This is too cool for words. Yesterday, swimmer Diana Nyad was a guest on The Katie Show. She talks with Katy all about her life and how she never gave up no matter how tough things got …and especially when some tried to tell her she was too old to do something. At one point in the conversation, she tells Katie one of things on her Bucket List is to do Dancing With The Stars. After that, Katie has a surprise and brings out Dancing With The Stars Val Chmerkovskiy. What an incredible life story with an amazing inspirational message. You can watch Diana and Val dancing in the second video at the 3:40 minute mark. We better keep a ‘watch out” on this one too as maybe she will be asked to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 18? Thanks to Vin for letting us know on this interview yesterday.
It’s that time again. Time to put on your dancing thinking caps for you new cast wishes. Question: Which celebrities would you like to see do Dancing With The Stars Season 18? Let us know in comments. Then in a couple of weeks (or when this post dies out), we’ll send this post to ABC. Note: this isn’t a Pro wish list…not yet. We’ll do a new post on them later. 😉
Ok, here are a few of my choices. It’s the same as last season with a couple of more added….
Kate Hudson (yeah right, but, I had to post her anyway)
Any of the Backstreet Boys
Melody Thomas Scott
Ok, your turn!!! We can’t wait to read your choices! Thanks everyone! xxx
Ok Dancettes!! It’s that time again. Question: Which celebrities would you like to see do Dancing With The Stars for Season 17? Let us know in comments. Then in a couple of weeks, we’ll send this post to ABC. Who knows if they will consider our choices, but hey, you never know, right?
Here are a few of my choices. I may add more in comments.
Dennis Rodman (can you imagine? lol)
Melody Thomas Scott
Ok, your turn!!! Let’s see who you’ve got!! Thanks everyone! xxx
I know that lots of people disconnect from DWTS between seasons, but we here are PureDWTS don’t stop writing stuff. We’re weird that way. So, I thought I would create a post summarizing some of the interesting things that were posted and talked about while you might have been away.
Shortly after the season ended, the rumors started up…and I wasn’t the only one commenting on the messed up mess that was Season 15. And it WAS Jordyn Wieber that wanted to dance with Val…
Vogue asked everyone for their wishlist for Season 16 – and at least one person got their wish. …Read more
Ok kids, we’re at about t minus
66 21 13 hours until the cast announcement, and it’s time once again to break down the various rumors we’ve heard about the cast so far – which, unfortunately, haven’t been too plentiful this season. But hey, at least it has given our imaginations the chance to run wild and we may be in for some big, hopefully pleasant surprises on Tuesday morning
I went ahead and broke the rumored names into categories: the ones that we think are legitimate possibilities (names we keep hearing, from reputable sources), the ones that are a longshot (they’ve been a rumor, but they’re more likely to say “no” than the legitimate possibilities), the ones that have said they want to do the show or have campaigned to get on the show (but probably haven’t been/won’t be asked), the random one-offs that are usually referred to by a 3rd party (and not a reputable source or the person themselves), and the “endless parade of no” – the celebs who were reportedly asked to do the show, but turned it down.
ETA: Added a new rumor, and threw in some updates on others. Things are starting to take shape!
ETA2: The rumors came flooding in today…and some of them seem pretty legit.
Victor Ortiz – confirmed
Somebody from General Hospital – right now, all we know for sure is that it’s not Kristen Alderson or Nancy Lee Grahn
Jacoby Jones – confirmed during Oscars telecast
Lisa Vanderpump – already following new pro Gleb on Twitter, and vice-versa
The Endless Parade of “No”:
Curious as to what pros we’re going to see/not going to see this season? Be sure to keep an eye on Heidi’s Pro Watch to keep up with all the in’s, out’s, and new faces this season. And be sure to tune into PureDWTS starting at 7 AM EST on Tuesday (2/26), as yours truly will be live blogging the cast announcement on GMA…things could get crazy, kids. You won’t want to miss it 😉
