DWTS Season 19 Watchout: Andy Pettitte Asked To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

According to Josh Pettitte, his dad, Andy, has been asked by Dancing With The Stars to dance. Read below and thanks to @DWTSgossip for the find.

So, what do you think? Would you like to see Josh dance? I’d love to have a baseball player dance on the show. I say heck yeah. Though I’d like to see another football player dance as well.

DWTS Season 19 Rumor: Wrestler James Storm To Dance?

Hmmmm, isn’t this an intriguing tweet from pro wrestler James Storm?!! He posted this…

Just arrived for my meeting with ABC. These boots are made for dancing not walking.

Below is a screen capture in case it disappears…

He could also be doing something else like doing a Disney Character role as he also posted this tweet. LOL to putting “a little redneck in Disney”.

So, what do you think if dancing on Dancing With The Stars is something in the making? I think it would be a total hoot. I can kind of see him with Sharna! Let us know what you think.

Olympic Equestrian Rider And Coach Jane Savoie Wants To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

Normally, we don’t really post a lot on celebrity campaigns, but, this lady sounds different and kind of interesting. According to the Equestrian Chronicle, Olympic equestrian rider and coach Jane Savoie wants to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Be sure to read how she came up with the idea to dance and why at Equestrian Chronicle. Below is a take for her message….

Savoie said she thinks it’s important for people to see that just because they’ve received their Medicare cards doesn’t mean that there’s not room for plenty more adventure in their lives, especially adventures as physically demanding as dancing.

She said that ballroom dancing isn’t all glittery sequins.

“There are hours and hours of sweaty practice behind the scenes,” she said.

“I started at 63. I’m 65 now,” she said. ”I think it’s encouraging for people that are in my age group who maybe have stopped dreaming to realize that there’s no expiration date on having a dream and going for it and staying fit and staying vibrant. I personally think it’s very encouraging when I see middle-aged and senior athletes just doing their things.”

Now that Savoie has sweated, practiced and competed, it’s time to impress the producers of “Dancing With the Stars.”

“They need to know that there is enough of a fan base within the horse industry because they’re not going to put someone on the show who doesn’t have a good following,” Savoie said. “I need people to like my Jane Savoie Dancing With the Stars Facebook page and share it with everyone.”

So, what do you think? Jane Savoie to dance? I say yes!!

Katie Couric Site: ‘Do you want to see Katie on “Dancing with the Stars”?’ (Watch Repeat)

Hey all and for those interested, don’t miss seeing a repeat episode of The Katie Show today. This past May, Dancing With The Stars judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli guessed on the show as well as hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet. They talk of the 300th episode of Dancing With The Stars. Pro Louis Van Amstel also shows Katie some dance moves and then they dance. However, what’s extra is fun in watching this episode again is the cast trying to coax Katie into dancing for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. So, be sure to watch. You can also see our previous posting with videos of this episode at this link. I love too how they have this page set up at her site asking viewers if they’d like to see Katie on Dancing With The Stars.

Yes, I’m still holding onto this (pipe?) dream. Smiley-Begging

Katie Couric And Louis Van Amstel Cha Cha For Dancing With The Stars Judges And Hosts

What a fun segment on the Katie Couric show yesterday!! Look how Louis van Amstel taught Katie how to Cha Cha. Then they performed for Brooke Burke-Charvet, Tom Bergeron, Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman. So cute. We need Katie to do Dancing With The Stars next season. The cast below agrees. Look how they try to coax Katie into dancing in the second video below for Dancing With The Stars Season 17. For those new to the site, this isn’t the first time there has been talk of this. Come on, Katie! Please do Dancing With The Stars.

I hope this video works. If not, see this link.

Is UFC Champ Tito Ortiz Up For DWTS Season 16??

If you don’t know, Tito Ortiz is a UFC champ who recently retired. Tito talks at length about bullying and fighting against it – fantastic cause. At the end of the discussion, of COURSE Access Hollywood has to ask him if he would consider doing DWTS. It’s SO random, that I have to wonder if they were prompted to ask. Anyway, at first he’s like “oh, I took a little interest in it” but as he goes on it sounds like he’d like to show Chuck Liddell how it’s done and he said he always told his fans that if he did it would be after he retired…and he’s now retired. So…who knows? We’ve had more than one celebrity respond to a random question like this in a somewhat vague manner who then ended up being on the show that season.

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

What do you think?? And do you think that this is just a coincidence?? :-D  Derek is the only reason I know who Tito is, him being a massive UFC fan and all.

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. :-)

Daniella Monet Campaigns for a Spot on Dancing with the Stars Season 16

Girlfriend, chill out. You’re very pretty, but like I said in a previous post – campaigning never works.  Ever. If you get on the show, you will be the first. :-)

No, I haven’t gone crazy. CraziER. :-) Daniella is goading her fans into spamming @DancingABC about putting her on the show.  It’s  a bit out of hand. First, Just Jared Jr. reported that she wanted to do the show:

Daniella Monet is gunning for a spot on the new season of Dancing With The Stars — and JJJ would love to see her on it!

The 23-year-old actress tweeted a couple weeks ago, “Competing on @dancingabc would be a dream come true. I have 0 professional experience, but I’d give it everything!!”

Now, she of Nickelodeon fame, is trying to get her own personal DWTS hashtag trending on twitter. Lawd, it’s hard to find real rumors in between all the campaigns that have sprung up in the last week. :-)

“@: If it was up to you, which actresses would you cast for season 16 of #DWTS?” <---- tweet them #DaniellaMonetOnDWTS :)

DWTS Season 14 Cast Revealed?? You Be the Judge!

As those of you who read the comments on this site know, a reader named MissWMG claimed to have gotten the new TV Guide and it had the DWTS Cast in it.  We, of course, were (and some still are) highly skeptical that she was legit because we’ve had issues with people trying to scam us before. Well, here is what MissWMG sent to us.  Look legit to you??  It does to me, but I’m extremely cautious due to past experiences on this site.  KEEP IN MIND that DWTS has never done this before – give the cast to a major ‘zine prior to the official announcement. Perhaps they assumed that subscribers wouldn’t get it until Tuesday afternoon? In any case, I want to let our readers in on what was sent to us – you all can be the judge.  Do you think this is the cast?  And how about the rumored 12th dancer added at the last minute??  And do you think that the cast was finalized in time for TV Guide to go to print??

In any case, we will find out for real tomorrow: real or scam. :-)

ETA: “TV Guide” spelled Menudos wrong, didn’t they?

DWTS Season 14 – Who’s Dancing With Who?? The CAST ANNOUNCEMENT!!

It’s that time again! Time for Heidi to guess who’s dancing with who, based on nothing more than heights and imagination. :-)  We are putting up posts so fast and furious that I can’t leave anything stuck to the front page for very long, so if you’re looking for Rumor Round Up and/or Pro Watch, just click the links to go back to those posts. :-)

This season it’s much harder, because we don’t know who’s dancing yet in terms of celebs and we’ll find out all at one time (celebs and partners) on Tuesday.  They are trying to rob me of my usual guessing game. :-) So, I’m going to guess based on the celebs we’re reasonably sure about and then if we get more info, I’ll fill it in.

THIS IS THE POST WHERE I’LL PUT THE CAST ANNOUNCEMENT!!!  Watch this space!!  I updated the title, so you have to update your bookmarks, so be aware. :-)

Court’s Notes, part I: Lots of stalling (surprise, surprise).  So far I’ve seen Cheryl, Derek, Peta, & Tristan lurking around the theater.  Tristan just found out who his partner was about 20 minutes ago.  The list of celebs is in a ridiculous sparkly purple envelope :-P

Court’s Notes, part II: I must really love you guys, because I just switched over from the HD channel to the regular one to minimize any delays in my feed.  You’re welcome. :-P

Court’s Notes, part III: Even GMA is hopping on the “Will Maks be back???” bandwagon…ugh.  Annoying.  They’re promising the announcement is coming right after this commercial break, though…stand by…

Court’s Notes, part IV: This season’s celebs are: Jack Wagner, Melissa Gilbert, Donald Driver, William Levy, Sherri Shepherd, Katherine Jenkins, Gavin DeGraw, Martina Navratilova, Roshon Fagen, Maria Menounos, Jaleel White, & GLADYS KNIGHT!!!! And no, they haven’t announced who their partners are, yet. Patience :-)

Court’s Notes, part V: Banter with the celebs…Melissa was apparently petrified at first, but is a little better now; Robin thinks Jaleel will be a force to be reckoned with (I agree); and Sherri says she’s “scared to death” and “needs Barbara Walters!”

Court’s Notes, part VI: All partners posted.  Looks like Gladys was the last-minute addition.  Tristan thinks they’re “gonna have a blast”.

Court’s Notes, part VII: Sherri’s biggest fear “besides being old” (lol), is having a bad memory – she’s afraid of forgetting her choreography.  Donald deliberately didn’t tell any of his teammates about the show “because some of them have big mouths”.  Everyone seems very intimidated by Jaleel & think he’s gonna be a staunch competitor…I agree.  Even the way he walked out on the stage was charismatic! 8-)

Sir Sleep Twitter Account Teases On Val And Maks Chmerkovskiy’s DWTS14 Partners

I don’t care who these two are dancing with. I’m just glad the two are dancing!! In case you don’t know Sir Sleep is Maks’ bulldog. Maks and Val (and maybe Teddy?) like to update us on Sir Sleep and his adventures at twitter occasionally under this account. Anyway, I’m going out on a limb and taking this as good news for the “Chmerkovskiy” camp and that their fans can relax a little knowing that the two are dancing. ADDING: Though note, nothing is 100% official until the cast announcement on Tuesday.

So, if true, does this mean there are 11 dancers or are there 12 dancers? If there are only 11 dancers and 5 are male, could one of the rumored dancers be out? If so, which one?

The saga continues in Dancing With The Stars land. I feel kind of silly reporting on a dog account at twitter and it’s a first, but, it is what it is. LOL! 8O

Thanks to @TristanMacmanusFans at twitter for this news. Be sure to follow her for all the latest on Tristan. She’s a jewel. xx
