Interesting tweet below by Olympic Gold Medalist Dominique Moceanu (thanks to Miss Heidi for the find). The gymnast is campaigning to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Not sure if this will pan out, but, we like to cover our bases ….especially when it comes to a Olympic gymnasts. You can read more on Dominique here.
The Daily Mail via US Weekly is reporting Jodie Sweetin has signed on to dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 22. Oh, I hope this is true. She sounded very interested last season when Courtney talked with her. Remember this interview? If not, be sure to see it.
ETA: You can now see the US Weekly article here.
Better crack out those bright blue spandex leggings, because Stephanie Tanner is getting her chance to shine again.
With less than a month until Fuller House hits Netflix, it has been revealed Jodie Sweetin is about to have a very big 2016.
Us Weekly reports the 34-year-old has signed up to be part of the latest season of Dancing With The Stars.
An insider told the magazine that Jodie will be getting her ballroom on come March 21 when season 22 airs on ABC.
Jodie has danced since even before she even appeared on cult hit Full House and her character Stephanie was no stranger to busting out a move or two.
Well, this is a stretch, but, being we learned last season that Alfonso Ribeiro is helping with casting for Dancing With The Stars, I thought it would be fun to post on the tweets below from he and Mike Tolbert of the Carolina Panthers. Apparently, Mike loves dancing and it’s something he takes seriously too. I wonder if he’d be up for Dancing With The Stars in the Spring? Would you like it if Mike danced? I think he’d be fun!

I see you @miketolbert35

Tolbert is one of the league’s best fullbacks as well. He was voted to Pro Bowl for the second time in two years. What he can do as a runner, receiver out of the backfield and blocker is invaluable.
Dancing is just a hobby, but one he takes seriously.
Tolbert is just as likely to break out in dance during practice or in the locker room as he is after a touchdown.
“Tolbert takes the crown,” tight end Ed Dickson said. “He’s more outgoing. He’s willing to open up and do a dance in a split second. If you say let’s have a dance competition, he’s the one that would show his stuff.
“The rest of us would maybe shy away.”

Check out this interesting tweet by ABC’s Chasing Life’s Italia Ricci. Is it possible she’s been asked to do the next season of dancing With The Stars….especially for how it’s worded? Not sure, but, we better put her on Watch Out! Thanks to Dee for the heads up!
And so a new “Bachelor” for Dancing With The Stars rumor begins. E Online is reporting Ben Higgins is open to anything….and even to dancing on Dancing With The Stars. E Online also reports that Kaitlyn Bristowe (who was in talks to dance last season) is still open to the idea of dancing too. What do you think? Do you like the idea of these two dancing? I’m not sure, but, I think Ben is kind of cute? Heidi, what do you think?
Heidi: I think Kaitlyn blew her chance, actually. Most Bachelors/Bachelorettes are very old news by the time the “next season” rolls around. You have to strike while the iron is hot. Her iron ain’t so hot any more. Ben, on the other hand, will likely be VERY popular and I can see him on the show. Young, handsome, and down to earth (for now). I like both of them and wouldn’t mind seeing them on the show, but I think Ben is the only one with a real shot…unless they take both of them since they “dated” on her season of the show. Of course, both are in the “wishful thinking” category right now, and not in actual rumor territory – but I would be very surprised if Ben isn’t considered for next season. DWTS has a pattern. 😉
While the 27-year-old software salesman has yet to officially make his debut on The Bachelor (the premiere is on Monday, Jan. 4), Ben is already looking at life after his televised journey for love comes to end. And it may just include a trip to Dancing With the Stars’ ballroom for its next season.
When asked if he would ever consider joining DWTS while on a conference call with reporters, America’s most eligible bachelor had the perfect answer.
“I think I’m excited about what experiences are next in life. Just like I never expected to be on The Bachelorette, I never expected to be the Bachelor, I don’t know what to expect next and I’m open to anything,” he said. “I have a great life. I love my life here in Denver. I don’t want to chance my life, but if there’s opportunity to enhance it, I’m all for it!”
Translation: Ben is SO in if DWTS is.
Last season, Kaitlyn Bristowe was in talks to join the cast. While it ultimately didn’t happen, a source told us, “The timing isn’t right, but she loves the show and hopes to keep the door open for another season down the road.”
We reported on this rumor at the end of November. Now I’m starting to wonder if this might come true? According to another new interview with TMZ, New York Giant Giant Rashad Jennings is not only interested in dancing on Dancing With The Stars, but, he’s in talks with producers. Listen below how he’ll even know in a couple of days….
According to a new interview with TMZ, NY Giant Rashad Jennings is very interested in dancing on Dancing With The Stars when his football days is over. Not sure if next season is a possibility, but, you never know? I love when football players dance. What do you think?
NY Giants RB Rashad Jennings says he wants to be the next Michael Sam … ’cause he is itching for the opportunity to strut his stuff in front of the world on “Dancing with the Stars.”
Jennings was out in NYC when we talked about his television watching habits … and asked if he’d ever be down to trade in his cleats for dancing shoes to compete on ‘DWTS,’ a show he said he LOVES.
Check out the clip — Rashad says ‘DWTS’ is definitely something he wants to do when his football days are over … and is desperately hoping he gets the chance to prove it to producers.
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!
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.”
