According to @PardonMyTake at twitter, Major League baseball player David Ross is going to be dancing on Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Not sure if it’s true, but we will soon see? Thanks to Vin for the heads up.
Jenna fans asking if she’s gonna be in the troupe, I think you just got your answer:
I would like to personally announce to all my incredible fans that I have decided to take this season off of #DWTS. After the best 4 years of my life, I am ready to take some time for myself, get rejuvenated and prep for my next venture…😉, this isn’t the last you are going to see of me…. Thank you ALL for continuing to love and support me through this journey!! I’m beyond grateful and love my #DWTS family… so to all the competitors this season…. I can’t wait to cheer you on in the Ballroom!! 💋💋
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.
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.

According to E Online, Rashad Jennings is dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars as well Yay. I always love football players on the show.
Additionally, E! News has learned that NFL player Rashad Jennings has joined the cast as well. Currently a free agent, Jennings spent the last two seasons as a running back for the New York Giants.
The next 48 hours leading up to the cast announcement are likely to be pretty hectic, so I thought I better get this posted sooner rather than later. Here’s the list of all the cast rumors we’ve heard/reported on for season 24 – as always, they’re divided into categories. Legitimate possibilities are rumors that we think have some validity, based on who is reporting them; long shots are rumors from a source that we don’t necessarily trust, but it’s possible they could be valid; pure randomness is general observations/weird stuff we’ve noticed that may or may not indicate anything, but is interesting nonetheless; wannabes/campaigners are celebs that have expressed interest in doing the show, but we have no reason to believe they’ve actually been asked to do the show; and the definite “no’s” are celebs that have specifically said they won’t do the show.
If anything new crops up between now & the announcement, I’ll do my best to update…but no guarantees. Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday, and I’ve got hella king cakes to get ready 😎
The Definite No’s:
Could Shemar Moore be dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars? I don’t know…..but, ‘Criminal Minds’ and former ‘Young And The Restless’ soap star (when I use to watch this soap, I loved him!) has a huge secret right now. What an awesome get if he’s dancing. What do you think? Thanks to CH for the heads up.

According to E Online, Dancing With The Stars s in talks with Saturday Night Live Veteran Chris Kattan For Season 24. Hmmm, not sure what to think on this one since I don’t watch that show ever.
Dancing With the Stars better secure the rights to Haddaway’s “What Is Love” for new contestant Chris Kattan. E! News has learned the Saturday Night Live veteran is in serious talks to compete in season 24 of the reality dance competition and you can be sure there will be some Night at the Roxbury, which used “What Is Love,” homages. Perhaps Mr. Peepers will make an appearance?
Via People Magazine, the 5th Harmony cast member is Normani:
Though ABC has no official comment on the news ahead of the full cast reveal on Good Morning America next week, a source confirms the 20-year-old member of the hit girl pop group and global ambassador for the American cancer society will compete on the dance competition’s 24th season.
They also confirm Sharna is back…
A second source confirms that dance pro Sharna Burgess will be returning. She joins confirmed pros Witney Carson, brothers Maks and Val Chmerkovskiy and Maks’ fiancée Peta Murgatroyd, who will hit the dance floor just two and a half months after giving birth to son Shai Aleksander.
