PureDWTS Season 24 – Tony Dovolani Not Returning As a Pro

So Tony just posted this…

I wanted my fans to hear it from me first. I will not be on Dancing With The Stars this season, season 24. While I will miss the show and interacting with our wonderful audiences, both at home and in the ballroom, I will continue to focus on growing my Dance With Me USA studios and teaching. I will also be traveling across the country performing and making personal appearances. I will be hosting my second annual Tony Dovolani Foundation: Golf For Special Needs Children tournament on July 14. I’m honored to be a member of the PGA’s Player and Coaching Development Committee and to be contributing to the future of the professional game of golf. Catch me on ABC’s Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion Shall We Dance On Ice special this Saturday, February 25 3:00pm – 5:00pm EST 2:00pm – 4:00pm CST & PST 1:00pm – 3:00pm MST Tony Dovolani

A post shared by Tony dovolani (@tonydovolani) on


Man, that really stinks  – I found myself really missing Tony’s warmth and patience with his partners last season.  But as I shared before – I started getting the impression that Artem had replaced Tony as the pro that “gets all the older ladies”, and that I wasn’t sure there was going to be room for both in this season’s roster. And given that he seems to be giving us a long-term look at what he is going to be up to for the next several months, I kinda wonder if we’ve seen Tony’s swan song on DWTS 🙁

Thoughts?

More DWTS 24 Rumors: Someone From Pretty Little Liars, Property Brothers, or Storage Wars?

Hollywood Life has some hints for more people who are dancing on Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Whether these hints are true or not remains to be seen. Any guesses?

So, who else is competing? Glad you asked! A cast member from Pretty Little Liars, and a star from Property Brothers or Storage Wars are pretty much set in stone, a series insider EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com earlier this month, noting that only two or three spots are still open. That means the cast list is nearly complete! Season 24 is gearing up to be the best one yet!

See Hollywood Life to read the full article.

ETA: I was just looking at all of our rumors gathered over the off season. Note how Ashley Benson from “Pretty Little Liars” was one of them. Thanks to Colleen for the reminder too.

Producers Having No Trouble Completing The Roster For Dancing With The Stars Season 24

Apparently, the producers of Dancing With The Stars asked Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama to dance this season. As to no surprise, they said “no”. However, according to US Weekly, they aren’t having trouble filling out the roster…..

Despite a few snubs, producers are having no trouble completing the roster, says the show source. (The full list will be revealed on Good Morning America March 1.) One name near the top of the list: reality star Nick Viall. The former track star, 36, “is dying” to be the fourth Bachelor to bust a move in front of millions, says the source, adding, “it’s looking likely he’ll be on.”

Producers are rounding out the group “with a couple of movie stars who are showing interest,” says the show source. “They’re just trying to put together a good cast.”

No matter who’s competing, professional dancers Maks Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd are ready to go for mirrorball silver. The parents of 7-week-old son Shai admit in the new issue of Us Weekly that they share a healthy rivalry.

While Murgatroyd, 30, who nabbed her second trophy with model Nyle DiMarco last May, tells Us, “I want to defend my title,” her husband-to-be, 37, might stand in her way. “This season is special because of Peta coming back,” he says. “I just want to support her and at the same time, maybe have some healthy competition in the family.”

For the full report, see US Weekly.

Would Olympic Gold Medalist Mary Lou Retton Do Dancing With The Stars?

AOL.com has a fun interview with Olympic Glod Medalist Mary Lou Retton. They ask her on Nature’s Bounty for the #DearFutureMe campaign that she’s heading up. They also ask if she’d ever do Dancing With The Stars. More below….

Speaking of Laurie [Hernandez], would you ever consider competing on “Dancing with the Stars”?

I’d love to! Are you kidding me? Represent the old group! I’m a big fan of the show. I’ve actually been asked, [but] with my schedule, I just couldn’t do it. If the timing is right, I would love to do it. Especially if there’s a gymnast on, of course we all support our family of gymnasts.

Do you have a pro that you would want to dance with?

I’m assuming they’re going to put me with one of the smaller ones, one of the shorter ones. I’m not picky!

Hmmm, maybe they will ask her to do Dancing With The Stars again? You never know. More at AOL.com.

New Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay To Dance On Dancing With The Stars Season 24 Or Another Season?

I never know what to think of the Dancing With The Stars rumors from Hollywood Life. This time, the inconsistent (in other words, take this with a grain of salt) online tabloid is reporting Rachel Lindsay (the new bachelorette) is going to dance on Dancing With The Stars at some point. Let us know what you think if true and don’t forget to head to the link to read the full rumor.

We’re going to be seeing a lot of gorgeous Rachel Lindsay in the coming months. In addition to her search for a husband as the next Bachelorette, the 31-year-old will also be on the hunt for a Mirrorball trophy! The Dallas attorney is going to be following in the footsteps of many other Bachelor and Bachelorette stars by competing on an upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. “Within the next two seasons of DWTS, producers with the show and ABC are trying to lock down what season she will do. They want to take advantage of all the positive press they expect from it all, but are just weighing the pros and cons of doing it early or not,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Is it possible Ashley Benson is going to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 24? Just Jared Jr. has had their eye on the “Pretty Little Liar’s” actress since she started following Mark Ballas on instagram. She would make a great choice if something might be in the works.

Hugh Grant Thinks Dancing With The Stars Is “Superb”, But, Probably Wouldn’t Dance

In an older interview Hugh Grant said he’d love to do Dancing With The Stars as he thinks the show is “superb”, but, he probably wouldn’t. Instead he’d like to dance in an up coming movie “Wall On Drugs”. Could he change his mind? I doubt it, but, it’s fun to think about getting a big name like this.

DWTS Cheryl Burke And Witney Carson Attend iHeart80s Party , Past Rumored Celeb Ricky Shroder Pictured With Witney

Dancing With The Stars Cheryl Burke and Witney Carson attended the iHeart80s Party and looking so cute. Also, note how Ricky Shroder was pictured with Witney. As regulars to the site know, he’s been asked to dance in the past. My juices are flowing. What I’d give for him to say “yes” if they asked him to dance again this season. I love the idea of him dancing with Witney too. Click on the photos to see more photos if interested.

Army Staff Sgt. Jose Medina Mentions Dancing With The Stars On Sunday Fox And Friends

Did you happen to see this beautiful inaugural dance in honor of the Military Service? Well, this morning on Sunday Fox And Friends, Army Staff Sgt. Jose Medina (who danced with First Lady Melania Trump) said he’s hoping this was his Dancing With The Stars debut. He was just joking, but, I got the impression he’d love to dance on the show and I love the thought of it. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Catherine Cartmell (who danced with our new President) would be a good one too. What do you think?
