DWTS Season 14 – Rumor…or Wild Speculation: Nicole Anderson

I seriously wanted to put “wild-assed” speculation in the title of this one but thought John might get mad at me. :-)

Seriously, though – after lecturing everyone about not jumping at shadows and thinking every “exciting news” comment on Twitter is a pending DWTS announcement, here I am…jumping at a shadow. Unfortunately, as Claire pointed out in the comments, this one has a twisted synergy to it that lends it some credence in my very twisted mind. :-)  What am I calling twisted synergy??  Well, the DWTS producers often show themselves to be rather unimaginative and uninspired when it comes to finding contestants for the show – and that’s what this would be. Chelsea Kane’s co-star on Jonas?? The Disney Channel??  Doesn’t this have Mark Ballas written all over it??  Come on, producers, shop at another store, would ya?? Nicole is/was a competitive gymnast, too.  She seems like a cute girl – but I hope this one is WRONG. Here’s what she posted on Twitter last night:

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. :-)

DWTS Season 14 Rumor: Extra’s Maria Menounos Dancing On Dancing With The Stars?

TMZ has learned of another new celebrity to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Extra’s Maria Menounos!! As always…note, nothing is official until Tuesday. For now, these are all rumors!!

TMZ has learned the identity of yet another of the contestants for the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars” … the super hot Maria Menounos.

What do you think if true? I like her. I can see her with any of the male pros.

DWTS14 Possibility: Legendary Dallas Quarterback Troy Aikman To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Ok, before you read this, take note that I am grasping at straws here. As some of you have noticed at twitter, Peta Murgatroyd flew to Dallas and she’s “very excited” and “happy” much like she was last season at this time. Could she be meeting her new partner on Dancing With The Stars? Sally, one of our readers reminded us of the Troy Aikman rumor in a previous season (Season 11 to be exact). In case you don’t know, Troy Aikman is a former “legendary” quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and as you can see in the video below from TMZ (which was posted on July 29, 2010), Troy remarked he was going to do Dancing With The Stars “next year“. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

So, what do you think? Does this possibility have a leg to stand on and could Troy be Peta’s new partner (if it’s true she’s dancing)? I think they would make a striking and perfect couple and I bet he would be a good dancer too. Also, this is a huge A-lister imo!! Way to go to TPTB if this comes true. You are going to make a fan out of my husband yet.

DWTS 14 Rumor: TMZ Reports Maks Arriving In L.A. And Meeting With Melissa Gilbert (Video)

Despite the rumors of Maks not dancing this season on Dancing With The Stars, TMZ has learned this is not true. Below is a video of Maks arriving at LAX. Though he doesn’t comment on the show, he’s rumored to have met with Melissa Gilbert right after leaving the airport. Be sure to read more at TMZ. As our Heidi reminded us all quickly last night in the comments sections with all the excitement, remember TMZ was “wrong” on some of their findings last season. However, they’ve also been reliable in the past as well. So, it’s anyone’s call here. Prepare for any kind of news on Tuesday on this subject.

If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to see our previous TMZ post that broke out last night with rumors of Jack Wagoner, Melissa Gilbert, and Sherri Shepherd dancing here.

Thanks to PureDWTS reader Elara for this news upon waking up and first getting here this morning!! ;) xx

So, what do you think if Maks is dancing with Melissa (if true?)? Personally, I think she is too small. I see her more with Derek? 8O

DWTS Season 14 Rumor – A Star Associated With General Hospital To Dance?

Remember this is a “rumor” ONLY, but, ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting that a Dancing With The Stars connection has told them that “a face familiar to GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers may very well be vying for that mirrorball trophy!” Here is more from their investigations. Read the link for the full story.

Upon further investigation, another DANCING source indicates to In Depth that the contender is actually a star associated with GH — and not a member of the current cast. While Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky) would be a great celebrity to appear on the show, his ABC pilot, NASHVILLE, will be filming during the time that the new season kicks off in March. Similarly, John Stamos (ex-Blackie) has a huge mainstream following, but he’s also currently tied to an upcoming pilot. Emma Samms (Holly) and her DYNASTY/THE COLBYS fan base would make her a popular choice, and lots of viewers would tune in to see singer Rick Springfield (Noah) do the tango. Since he is returning to GH this spring, ABC would be gaining a great cross-promotion opportunity by casting Springfield. There’s also Springfield’s ’80’s soap star/singer rival Jack Wagner (Frisco) to bear in mind. While its rumored that Wagner may be next on GH’s returning list, the end of his run on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL has opened up a block of time in his schedule. Plus, B&B tapes on the same lot as DANCING, so he knows his way to the studio! The soon-to-depart Nathan Parsons (Ethan) is a trained dancer, and even performs with his dance troupe, BoomKat Dance Theatre, so he definitely has the skills to Cha-Cha across the floor and impress judge Bruno Tonioli. Our final guess is Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda), who has the beauty and grace to tackle the two-step, and the former LAS VEGAS and BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 star comes complete with a primetime pedigree behind her.

Again, keep in mind, this is only a rumor. Like Courtney commented in another post that “many of the names they’ve mentioned are currently tied up with other commitments.” I will let her explain more….

Court’s thoughts: Ok, first of all I think you have to take into account that GH has been on the air almost 49 years, which means there’s been 49 years of cast members coming & going, 49 years of special guest stars, and 49 years of random unknown-at-the-time stars playing minor roles. When you think about it, that’s a lot of actors & actresses that can say they’ve done GH at some point in their lives – and the way this report is worded, it makes it sound like it could be ANYONE who has done GH at some point, even if it were just for a short stint.  A small sampling of celebs who have appeared on GH: Demi Moore, John Stamos, Elizabeth Taylor, Ricky Martin, Richard Dean Anderson, Sammy Davis Jr., 98 Degrees, Roseanne & Tom Arnold, BB King, and most recently, James Franco.  And that’s just a small sample.  So while it could be someone that has done GH – it may not be someone who is primarily known for GH.  Secondly, the article is a bit misleading, since it puts pictures of current cast members at the top of the article – a lot of the stars they’re speculating about in this article are currently tied up with other projects…or other events in their lives which would likely preclude an appearance on DWTS.  Maurice Benard is bipolar and suffers from acute social anxiety – not exactly the right mindset for DWTS.  Vanessa Marcil-Giovanazzo just had a late-term miscarriage :-( Rick Springfield is returning to GH, but is also still battling substance abuse issues.  Jonathan Jackson, Kimberly McCullough, & John Stamos are all pursuing other tv shows and movies.  Scott Reeves & Steve Burton are getting ready to tour with their band, Port Chuck. Anthony Geary? Ok, I would totally get behind that one, but he rarely appears on GH anymore, and from what I hear that’s his own choice. Do I think this report is an out-and-out lie? Well, no, but I think they might be aiming a bit high with some of the names they’re throwing out – I think it may be more likely that they’d get a celeb that has left the show or only makes intermittent appearances, like Ingo Rademacher or Tyler Christopher.  Or Jacklyn Zeman. I’m totally down with someone from GH doing the show – I’ve been saying it’s high time they get another Port Charles resident on-board :-) I’m just not holding out for anyone HUGE…then again, the folks at DWTS are unpredictable, and they might (pleasantly) surprise me.  Time will tell.

Thanks to Maddy for the heads up on this rumor.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy Addresses Rumors On Whether He’s Dancing On DWTS14

ET has a new article up via ET Canada with Maks addressing the rumors on whether he’s dancing or not on Dancing With The Stars Season 14. He says he hasn’t been called to do the show yet, but, wouldn’t tell us if he does get one. He reveals a little on the cast too. More below and be sure to read the link for the full article.

Dancing with the Stars bad boy Maksim Chmerkovskiy revealed in a new interview that he hasn’t yet been asked to return for the next season of the hit ABC dancing competition.

Two-time runner-up Maks, one of the show’s most popular dance instructors, told ET Canada, “I still don’t know if I’m on the show.”

He teased that “everyone’s going to be really short” this season, adding that based on the short stature of the contestants and his reported 6’2″ height, “It’s not going to be a good pairing.”

ET Canada asked when he expects to get a call back to be on the show, and Maks replied, “I would still not tell you if I did but I’m not lying to you. I didn’t get the call yet.”

Adding and Special note: According to PureDWTS reader Evaine, the ET Canada interview was done back on Friday, February 17th when Maks and Val were in Montreal for a dance, meet, and greet event.

Giuliana Rancic Denies Rumors Of Dancing On Dancing With The Stars

In January, we reported on a possible rumor that E News reporter Giuliana Rancic might be dancing on Dancing With The Stars this season. Well, it doesn’t look like that will be happening. Below is more in a take from the Huffington Post.

She’s on the road to a complete recovery, and it doesn’t look like she’ll be slowing down any time soon. In fact, Rancic said she wishes she could do even more, but barring the addition of a few more hours in her day, there is little else she can pack in. She admitted she would love to appear on “Dancing With the Stars,” but denied rumors that she’s on the next season, saying she simply doesn’t have time right now.

“I wish I could do it,” she said. “It’s such a fun show but I literally can’t imagine taking those hours out of my day.”

Dancing With The Stars Season 14 Rumor: Pro Golfer Annika Sorenstam To Dance??

Today on the Golf Channels’ The Morning Drive, Swedish pro golfer Annika Sorenstam was interviewed. She expressed interest in dancing on Dancing With The Stars in the past and how she received a call to do the show. Here are some details below…

When asked about her interest in appearing on “Dancing With The Stars” after Tony Dovolani expressed his interest in having her on the show, Annika said that a year ago she received a call from the show to be involved and she turned down that offer because she was pregnant. Now that she is not pregnant, she said that she would be interested and also said that when she and her husband were dating, they took dance lessons. She would be interested in being involved but it will come down to whether or not the show wants to have her participate.

You can read the full article here.

As some of you might remember, @DWTSGossip tweeted about a female golfer dancing on the show at the beginning of the off season. Could this be her? These tweets are very interesting as well….


@ hope you saw my Tweet earlier…. Annika saying yes to Dancing with the Stars. @ must be on Cloud 9 #golfpartner
