Insider Shoots Down Dancing With The Stars Season 25 Cast Rumors, Comments On New Cast

At the end of July, TMZ reported producers of Dancing With The Stars were in talks with “Bachelor In Paradise” star DeMario Jackson to dance in Season 25? Variety is reporting is now reporting this rumor is not true. They also shoot down some of the other rumors we’ve reported on. Below is more including a comment on the new season…..

“I don’t think so,” the source says when asked if Olympios has been considered for the dance competition series. “I think [ABC] was really happy with how Nick Viall did in the spring, but if I had to guess, I’d guess that this fall, the show would probably take a break from Bachelor Nation. [The network] doesn’t like these shows to feel too intertwined.”

As for Sean Spicer, ABC had been eyeing the former White House press secretary, but he will not be joining the reality dancing show this season. Our source says that there was “some interest” in casting Spicer over the past few weeks, but plans fell apart this past weekend and it “doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.” However, the network had been talking to Spicer and was interested in him because of his recent pop culture relevance. In the fall, ABC typically goes for buzzy personalities who are newsworthy, since many athletes are not available with football season and have to wait to be cast on “DWTS” until the spring.

According to our source, Anthony Scaramucci, who was quickly ousted from Trump’s administration after a now-infamous explosive and vulgar interview, won’t be putting on his dancing shoes either. ABC hasn’t even reached out to Scaramucci.

“My gosh. By the time the show premieres, who knows how many other communications directors we’ll have gone through,” our source says with a laugh. In jest, the source adds, “Sure — [they’ll cast] Scaramucci, and then the replacement next week, and then the replacement next week. It will be ‘Dancing With the White House Communications Corp!’”

While our insider is staying mum on who has been officially cast for Season 25, the source says the network is “really happy” about who has signed on so far, but is still searching for more celebrity contestants. “I think it’s going to be a really warm cast — really fun and a lot of great dance ability.”

I hope so. More at Variety.

PureDWTS Watchout: Wannabe The Bachelor’s Corinne Olympios!!

I kind of dismissed this when I first saw it, but, then I thought we better put it on ‘watch out’ as you never know, right? It appears The Bachelor’s Corinne Olympios would consider dancing on Dancing With The Stars this season. Below is more from Star Magazine. Be sure to read more at the link. Note that US Weekly has also picked up this story.

Corinne Olympios has kept a low profile since all the Bachelor in Paradise sexual misconduct drama went down. ABC found no evidence of any wrong doing on her co-star, DeMario Jackson‘s, part after their investigation and now he’s looking to clear his name on another reality show!

DeMario, who was on Rachel Lindsay‘s Bachelorette season, is reportedly close to a deal to star in the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.

Meanwhile, Corinne is also open to being the show. She told photographers while out to dinner at Delilah in Los Angeles, “I would definitely consider it.

As for rumors about DeMario joining the cast, Corinne said, “I don’t care. I have nothing against him.”
