Looks like Derek has already been pretty busy with Hairspray, judging by this new advertisement that came out today. Looks like fun! I can’t wait. 🙂
We’ve reported on Simone several times, but now she kinda puts the rumors to rest…for now. She does say she would love to do it in the spring and the team would love to dance with Derek. Nice interview from WWD – click the link to read the whole thing.
WWD: Will you appear on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars?” Have you talked to anyone about that? Do you have a wish-list partner?
S.B.: Yes, I would really love to, but my schedule is very busy. I would love to do the spring season if they would let me. Everyone would love to have Derek [Hough] as a partner. But maybe if we got someone new that would be cool.
Hollywood Life via an insider who is saying Emma Slater is a “done deal” along with JoJo Fletcher and Jake T. Austin.

Gleb Savchenko “can’t wait to kill it” on Dancing With The Stars this season. Check out this new Facebook Live chat if you haven’t yet. It’s too fun. Also note how he mentions there will be a Good Morning America special/gig on September 7th before the premiere of the show on September 12th.
E Online is reporting Simone Biles (which we knew about), Jo Jo Fletcher (which we knew about), and…..get ready, this is a new one….. Disney star Jake T. Austin are going to dance in the new season of Dancing With The Stars. What do you think if true? I saw bring him on.
Simone Biles might have to make room on her trophy shelf for another award, because E! News has learned that the Olympic champion is poised to sign on for the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars. Also likely on the roster this fall? Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and former Disney star Jake T. Austin.
A source tells E! News that all three are in the running to compete for the Mirrorball Trophy on season 23 of DWTS. Biles, 19, won four gold medals and a bronze in the Rio Olympics, in case you lost track of her insanely amazing medal count. (They’re not calling her the greatest gymnast of all time for nothing, okay?)
Fletcher, who originally competed on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor, gave former football player Jordan Rodgers the final rose in the most recent Bachelorette finale. Austin starred on Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place alongside Selena Gomez before landing a role on Freeform’s The Fosters from 2013-2015.
More at E Online. Thanks to Vin for the heads up.
