DWTS 21: People Confirms Peta Murgatroyd “Out For the Season”

Damn…this was one partnership I was really looking forward to :-( According to People, Peta has indeed decided to sit this season out after finding out she will require surgery on her ankle that will “sideline her for 6-8 weeks”:

Having just come off a three-month, live DWTS tour, Murgatroyd “felt great” heading into rehearsals with her season 21 partner, Andy Grammer. But one day, after putting on her heels, she says she could tell “something was not right.”

“I wanted to check it out properly and make sure I was good to go for the season,” says the pro dancer, 29. “I Got my MRI results back and it was a really bad diagnosis. It showed I had 4 torn ligaments and a floating piece of bone at the back of my ankle. My doctor said I needed surgery and I knew I needed to put my health first if I want to keep dancing on the show into my 30s.”

I gotta applaud Peta for having the strength to say “I need to rest” – I’ve known too many dancers that have tried to soldier through some injuries, only to end up even more injured…and a few times, with their dance careers ended as a result. Read more..

Sharna Burgess Helps Kick Off 2015 Special Olympics World Games, Terrell Owens To Dance In DWTS Season 21?

It’s funny how things lead to another sometimes. This past Saturday night at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, Dancing With The Stars Sharna Burgess helped to kick off the 2015 Special Olympics World Games. You can read about it at Just Jared Jr and also see a cute pic of her. She also posted the instagram below of her and Terrell Owens on the Red Carpet. More after the photo…

Speaking of Terrell Owens….he said he’d love to do Dancing With The Stars this past February. From Dish Nation….

It’s that time of year again — a new cast was announced today for Season 20 of Dancing With The Stars, and although he won’t be competing this year, former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens exclusively told Dish Nation he’d love to be on the show.

“It’s a possibility. I don’t have two left feet,” he hinted while chatting on the red carpet at the Gold Meets Golden event in Hollywood recently.

“I think I could do okay for that. I have a few dance moves.”

Owens, 41, wouldn’t be the first footballer to compete on the show, and he says he knows a lot of the dancing pros.

Funny too as Court mentioned Terrell in this casting rumor post in Season 13 and said she wouldn’t be surprised if his name popped up to dance. And it’s true Terrell knows a lof of the pros as Heidi posted a picture with Terrell, Derek Hough, and Maria Menounos at a Beach Party in this previous post.

So, what do you think? Would you like the idea of Terrell Owens dancing on Dancing With The Stars? I say YES to any and all football players!

DWTS Season 21 Rumor: Nina Dobrev To Dance In Next Season Of Dancing With The Stars?

I don’t even want to think about the next season of Dancing With The Stars yet and maybe you don’t either, but, Hollywood Life is reporting on a new rumor that Nina Dobrev is thinking of dancing. Let us know what you think of this possibility in comments. My thoughts. I will put this simply: PLEASE NO! *cries*

“Nina has been asked by both Julianne and Derek to join the show,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “And if she does it next season Derek will be her partner. And Nina is really considering it. If she doesn’t have a job by the fall she will do it.”

Should we feel bad that we hope Nina doesn’t have a job come autumn? Because we would seriously love to see her take a stab at the samba. We’re hoping she eventually says yes! A little nudge from gal pal Julianne can’t hurt either, right?

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Nina has some other plans for her career besides a stint on DWTS.

“She knows that she might have to show some skin to get to the next level so if the part is right she will go topless in a heartbeat,” our source says. “She has already accepted the fact that it might be needed to go bare for her next move to get a real juicy role from another actress.”

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Sharon Osbourne??

I know this is an article for “Strictly Come Dancing” in the UK, but, I keep wondering if she’d do Dancing With The Stars in the US being both of her kids did….and especially with Louis Van Amstel possibly in the mix? Anyway, in the take below, Sharon Osbourne mentions how she’d love to dance on “Strictly Come Dancing”, but, doesn’t think she could do it. Read on for more from The Irish Examiner….

“Would I do Strictly in the UK? I would love to, I would really, really love to, because it is honestly my favourite programme to watch, it’s so much fun,” she said.

But she added: “But I’m too lazy and I don’t like to sweat, so I don’t think I could do it.”

Sharon, who appears in the new MoneySuperMarket car insurance ad, said she fancies freestyling her own dance moves if she was to appear on Strictly.

“Well, if I did do Strictly and I was brave enough and wasn’t so lazy, I wouldn’t like to do the foxtrot,” she continued.

“You hold your head a funny way and it’s all funny head movements – kind of like robotic. I would definitely be one of those people that would freestyle and throw myself around for a few minutes – and I’d like to be thrown around by my partner!”

Sharna Burgess has been in New York City, but, is it possible she met up with her new partner for Dancing With The Stars: Snoop dogg or maybe the other guy?? I don’t know, but, this sure is an interesting find by @DWTSGossip. I love the idea. I think Snoop he’d be a gas!!

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Nascar’s Ty Dillon Says He’s A Great Dancer!

I loved Nascar’s Michael Waltrip on Dancing With The Stars. Would Ty Dillon be a good one to dance too if TPTB decided to let another Nascar driver do the show? I say YES to the idea (I know my hubby would love it too!)!!! Below is more from Nascar.com.

NASCAR’s stars descended on Daytona International Speedway on Thursday, and a Reddit AMA chat broke out.

One fan, pinkysugarfree, said “Michael Waltrip was an entertaining hit on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ last season” and wanted to know which reality show drivers would be on.

Ty Dillon’s new wife, Haley Carey, has the XFINITY Series championship contender confident he could do better than Waltrip did on the ABC celebrity competition, which premieres March 16 for its 10th season.

“‘Dancing with the Stars and I would win it,” Dillon said. “I’m a great dancer. My wife wants me to be on it really bad.”

DWTS Season 20 Rumor: Patriot’s Malcolm Butler?

@DWTSGossip mentioned Malcom Butler this morning as a possibility for Dancing With The Stars Season 20. Now a source for Hollywood Life says producers have asked Malcolm to dance.

Malcolm had one of the biggest plays ever in Super Bowl history when during the final seconds he intercepted the ball at the Seahawks — causing the Patriots to secure their win. Now, a source exclusively revealed to HollywoodLife.com if Malcolm will take on a totally new challenge, learning how to dance.

“The producers have reached out and have asked Malcolm to be a part of the upcoming shows season,” our insider said. “He really wants to do it but will make his final decision after talking to the higher ups in the Patriots organization because they may not want him to risk injury in the off season. If that happened it could cost him millions and his day job.”

More at Hollywood Life.

I so want a football player to dance again so I say bring him on (if true!).

Heidi: Here’s what I think, and it’s VERY CYNICAL, so apologies in advance. Here is what I speculate happens from time to time. Sites like Hollywood Life are all over twitter and the internet like fleas. They see people like us, and DWTSGossip and even Kristyn Burtt talk on this site and on twitter and that becomes their “source”. Told you I was cynical. We know of another site that very obviously gets their story ideas from here so why not? Anyway, besides my cynical view of the whole thing, I would not be the least bit surprised to find that the producers wanted him. But I also would not be surprised to find he’d never even been asked. 😀

Vogue: lol Don’t apologize. I’ve oftened wondered the same.

Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski Says No To Dancing With The Stars Season 20

Remember when we posted about the possibility of Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 20? Many of us we’re so excited on this rumor. Well, apparently, he’s said “no” again. Below is more from the Boston Herald.

“I would love to go on ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ but it would be unfair because I would win so easily,” Gronk told the Track. “All kidding aside I don’t think at this time in my career I should be leaving my team during offseason training. 
I do like to do other things, but not if they interfere with football at this time.”

More at the Boston Herald.

DANG!

DWTS Season 20 Watchout: Patriot’s Rob Gronkowski Says He’s Healthy To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

Dancing With The Stars has asked Rob Gronkowski to dance in the past. Being he’s been hurt in the off seasons, he’s always said no, but, this season might be different being he’s healthy. Check out this fun convo with Rob and Jimmy Kimmel at the 1:39 mark. Thanks to DWTSgossip for another great find. I say bring him on. Hubby definitely agrees and says he’d be funny!
