DWTS Season 10 Rumor Round Up – Three Weeks to the Announcement!

So I was talking to John last night – or should I say, lamenting – the complete paucity of blabber mouthed celebs this season. It sucks, quite frankly. Last season at this time I had reported on a significant number of people who had spilled the beans via Twitter (Kelly Osbourne, Debi Mazar, to name two). It seems that, excepting Jason Chambers and Chad Ochocinco (although that was his friends, not him), there is very little to report from Twitter – and I have to think that perhaps the DWTS peeps had wised up about the whole Twitter thing, telling potential stars to SHUT IT. :-) So, because we’re less than three weeks out, I thought it was time for a little review of what HAS been rumored and reported on, either here or elsewhere.  I’ll discuss them by the categories I mentally put them in:

The Real Rumors with Real Potential Category

Most recently, the two big rumors have been Pam Anderson and John Stamos. Pam was outed as a potential by RadarOnline, and Karina Smirnoff claims that John was asked for a previous season and had to decline due to his Broadway commitments. I find it highly amusing that she’s putting in a claim on him just in case he changes his mind. :-) But, for some reason, I’m not inclined to believe this one will happen – assuming Karina is correct. I just consider John Stamos to be “too big” of a star to actually consider the show. Although it’s possible he could have been asked, I suppose. But I don’t see it happening. Pam Anderson? That one sure sounds likely and I haven’t seen anyone report that Pam denied it.

I guess that the Jennifer Grey rumor goes in this category. I think. Page Six reported that she was in negotiations way back in December but I’ve not heard much about it since then. Very well could be true – we find out in three weeks.

There are a couple of rumors that go here, but not necessarily for DANCING.  Paula Abdul (judge or dancer?), Marie Osmond (shudder – potential new co-host) and Nancy O’Dell (potential new co-host).  I think the Marie thing is more speculation than actual rumor. Billy Bush reported that there were 5 candidates remaining for the co-host job and that he was REALLY rooting for one in particular. That says Nancy O’Dell to me. The Marie thing was, I think, people taking his words and speculating. I HOPE.  And who the heck knows what is going on with Paula Abdul. :-)

The Blabbermouth Celebrity Category

Jason Chambers is kinda lonely in this category, this season. :-) He straight up said he had meetings with DWTS producers, as I discussed in a post back on February 1, 2010.  Because he blabbed, he may have blown his chance. The woman in me hopes like hell he hasn’t. ;-)  Chad Ochocinco, on the other hand, was outed by a former team mate as being a possibility for last season. As I said before, celebs rumored for one season often show up on later seasons.  Interestingly enough, I did see some twitter chatter that said Chad was going to LA this week – the speculation by these people was that his trip was related to DWTS.  I guess we’ll see.  And I almost forgot – Dirt Nasty (aka Simon Rex)!  He claims he met with the producers back in early January.  Did I read that this guy now does porn, or did I imagine that?

The PLEASE PUT ME ON DWTS Category

This is a surprisingly large category. :-)  I’ll just make a list of the ones I’m aware of, starting with the oldest one (from late 2009)
- Flight Time (aka Herbert Lang) of the Harlem Globetrotters by way of The Amazing Race
- Jermaine Dupre
- Kate Gosslin
- Danielle Fishel
- Ross Mathews
- Greg Louganis (who could also fit in the category below)
- Kevin Federine – this one is per Ryan Seacrest on his radio show this morning.  It seems I’ve heard this one before, but maybe I’m confusing him with someone else.
- Candace Cameron Bure – I think we can safely put her in this category based on what I posted here.

That’s all I could find right now. I’m sure someone will pop in (with links) to remind me of others who want to be on the show. :-)

And finally….
The “We’ve Heard This one Before” Category

Back on January 4th, I wrote a couple posts detailing rumors from previous seasons. The intent was to keep track of previous rumors to see if any of them came true for Season 10. Those posts were also titled Rumor Round Up and Rumor Round Up Part II – I’m not going to list all that again, so if you’re curious, click!!  Kurt Angle, Bethany Frankel and Vera Wang are the only ones I’ve heard any followup on recently.  It’s all speculation on the part of views, as I recall, so I won’t detail it here.

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 10 – Gossip and Innuendo

Was someone mentioning Candace Cameron Bure? Ah yes, she’s the one who’s been “speculated” or “wished for” on DWTS for a few seasons now. Where the speculation came from – her or her fans – I don’t remember. And I don’t really care. :-) But according to her, it ain’t happening. I would suggest she’s lying at the direction of producers, but since she is very religious – well, she best not be.

Okay, this exchange, below, scares me more than LaToya and Pam Anderson combined. Please, God, NO. Please. I don’t ask for much, but I cannot tolerate Marie Osmond. I came to like Donny very much – but save me from Marie, please. To say I disliked her when she was a contestant on DWTS is putting it mildly. And if the dude below ends up being right, I will curse all you Sam Harris haters for making the show WORSE. :-) You know what they say…better the enemy you know. lol

You all know who Billy Bush is – he’s a radio and TV Host. R.J. Johnson, according to his twitter page, is a TV producer/writer in LA. He could be full of crap, he could be right – I’m just reporting the conversation. I want to share my fear. ;-)

DWTS Season 10 – Pamela Anderson? Seriously?

It’s so bizarre it’s probably true. I’ll try to remain positive and not make any predictable and cliche comments (aka Boob Jokes). I’ve seen Pam in person and she’s very tiny…from the waist down. :-) Well, that lasted a long time. Heh.

Well, I have to confess that I only know the stereotyped Pam Anderson. Maybe she’ll be cool. Derek told Brooke to keep her chest off his in the quickstep – how do you think he’d react to Pam Anderson? LOL. Anyway, since I can’t talk about this without being negative and/or dirty, I’ll just report what Radar Online has to say:

Exclusive: Pam Anderson heading to Dancing with the Stars

Pam Anderson has signed to be on the next season of ABC’s hit Dancing With the Stars, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.

In a move that’s sure to boost the male viewing audience [ed. that's what they all say], Pam and the show have agreed to all terms for a deal and the deal is done, a source told RadarOnline.com.

Lord help me.

DWTS Season 10 Rumors – Things that Make You Go Hmmm

The thing that’s making me go “Hmmmm….” right now is this:

My question is – if it’s something she’s getting ready to work on, why wouldn’t SHE announce it…unless it’s seriously in the entertainment business. You know how they like to announce their own stuff. :-) Anyway, there’s been a lot of pushing around the ‘net for Melissa to take Samantha’s place on DWTS since Samantha left DWTS. This pushing has been by Melissa fans, of course, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen. I even sort of jokingly suggested it myself in a previous post! IF…and it’s a BIG IF because I don’t think that the producers pay that much attention to fans (because LOTS of celebs have huge fanbases, frankly)…if DWTS is Melissa’s announcement, what do you think of it? Is there something else Melissa has been rumored for and I’ve missed it? I read her twitter page back several days and I didn’t see anything.

Whatever is going on, I wish Melissa tons of success. I don’t think I would actually have an issue with her taking Samantha’s place. She’d do better than Sam and Paula combined (although that bar is set pretty low :-) ).

Don’t anyone freak out – I could be TOTALLY off base on this speculation.

DWTS Season 10 Cast – Finally Something More than a Rumor! Jason Chambers

No, I don’t know who Jason Chambers is, but he said he met with DWTS peeps today. :-) So it doesn’t matter if I know who he is or not. Here’s what he had to say on Twitter:

Turns out that Jason Chambers is HOT, 6 foot tall and a former mixed martial arts fighter. He’s 28 years old and an English commentator for Bellator Fighting Championships’ English broadcast – nope, don’t know what that is either. Jason’s Wiki

Bring him on – or is there something I don’t know? Fill me in. ;-)

Who’s Dancing on Season 10 of DWTS?

Find out during the finale of The Bachelor!!  According to Entertainment Tonight online, Tom will be doing the announcement during the two hour finale of that show – I guess the ratings need a boost? :-)  Get your Tums ready.

ABC says they will make the most of “The Bachelor” finale, airing Monday March 1, during which “Dancing with the Stars” host Tom Bergeron will announce new dancers throughout the dramatic two-hour conclusion to the popular romance reality series.

DWTS Season 10 Rumors – Greg Louganis…Again!

Shock of shocks, People.com is reporting that Greg Louganis wants to be on Dancing with the Stars!! Gee…where have I heard this one before? ;-) That’s right, this rumor started a while back and I reported on it here and here and here!  Now, People.com is quoting Greg as saying “put me on Dancing with the Stars”.  What does all this mean? Well, the original rumor was that he was vying for a spot on the show and subsequent rumors have been that he wants to be on the show. “Vying” could mean that he’s just putting it out there, or it could mean he was actually under consideration.  I tend to think that there is a real possibility of Greg being on the show, if not this season, then the next.  Mainly because, as I’ve said before, they had him do a cameo last seasons – that strengthens the possibility in my eyes.

Since I was doing this for the rumored females….potential partner? Well, Greg is 49, an Olympian and 5’9″ tall.  I’m going to say Karina, Cheryl or MAYBE Edyta.
