DWTS Rumor Watchouts: Indystar Speculates On James Hinchcliffe and Indianapolis 500 Champion Alexander Rossi

Indy Star is reporting that there might be a Indy race car driver to dance on Dancing With The Stars this season being there was an ABC reporter asking James Hinchcliffe questions. They speculate on other drivers too including Indianapolis 500 Champion Alexander Rossi who had to ask if he could talk about it. Read on for more and good job to Courtney. She was the first person that knew something was up early yesterday morning and put two and two together. Adding: Court also posted this post at the beginning of August.

FORT WORTH, Texas — IndyCar drivers James Hinchcliffe and Indianapolis 500 champion Alexander Rossi confirmed to IndyStar interest from ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” which begins its 23rd season Sept. 12.

Neither admitted to agreeing to participate, however, Hinchcliffe was interviewed Saturday at Texas Motor Speedway by two men who identified themselves as working for ABC.

The top-secret reveal of the 13 celebrity cast members is Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Motor sports legend Mario Andretti and his grandson, IndyCar driver Marco Andretti, both were asked if they had interest in participating in the show as Helio Castroneves did in 2007, but they declined. Mario Andretti, 76, said show officials “tried really hard” to convince him, but he said his schedule is too busy.

“I’m flattered,” he said. “I’d have done it, but it would have taken me away from too many things I’m doing.”

Hinchcliffe would only say he’s “heard other (drivers) mentioned.” Rossi was even more vague as prospects are sworn to secrecy.

“Can I talk about this?” Rossi asked an Andretti Autosport staff member, who shook her head no.

“I can’t talk about it,” he followed.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Who Do You Think is DWTS Season 23 Artem Chigvinstev’s Partner – How About Maureen McCormick?

The Dancing With The Stars instagram account teased on Artem Chigvinstev’s partner. Read below. Do you have some guesses? A fan named Kennedy wrote and said they think it’s Maureen McCormick. I looked up the hints and it’s true for how these hints fit. This Brady Bunch star has been on my wish list forever. I’d love to see her dance. So, what do you think in helping us to put it together and do you have other guesses that fit?

Hint: @theartemc's partner is a published author, released a country album, and started acting when she was 9! Who is she? #DWTS

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 23 Watchout: How About Robert Palmer Watkins?

Soap Central is reporting General Hospital’s Robert Palmer Watkins is all on board to dance on Dancing With The Stars after fans petitioning for him to dance. Usually petitions don’t pan out, but, I thought it was interesting that he is following @DancingABC and Witney Carson (screenshot below). Could something be up? If so, how do you like him paired with Witney? Thanks to Jamie for the first heads up.

Fans of the actor have been very vocal about how much they’d love to see Watkins compete on the show and have even started a petition, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by the heartthrob. “Apparently people are rallying for me to be on Dancing With the Stars. Been getting a lot of messages,” he wrote on Instagram. “For the record I’m totally on board!”

DWTS Watchout (Again): Will Teresa Giudice Dance In Season 23?

Take this one with a grain of salt being this rumor comes from the Daily Mail via The Star. Apparently, Teresa Guidice is ready to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Though note how she was put on a watch out this past April. She also turned down the show last season according to People. She also turned down the show down in Season 13. So, will she dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 23? Here is more….

Now the mother of four hopes to compete on Dancing With The Stars, according to a report from US Star magazine.

‘Teresa is scrambling for cash so a Dancing With The Stars gig -and the paycheck that comes with it – would be a huge help,’ a source told the publication.

Teresa and husband Joe have been hit with a $551,563 tax bill in recent weeks, it was added.

They have been struggling in the past year to pay back creditors and to keep their sprawling New Jersey mansion.

Doing the Cha-Cha on DWTS could earn her a steady salary if she is able to stay on the show.

Several other reality stars have done the ABC show, including Kim Kardashian from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim Zolciak from The Real Housewives Of Atlanta and Kate Gosselin from Kate Plus Eight.

‘Teresa is trying to act casual about it, telling friends that it would be fun and that she’d be in great shape,’ said a source.

To read the full article, see the Daily Mail via The Star.

I have to admit, I’m not too wild about this one. Let us know what you think in comments.

ETA: Well, we don’t have to worry about Teresa. E Online is reporting she hasn’t been asked to dance. Here is more….

While rumors have been circulating that The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is set to join the season 23 cast of Dancing With the Stars, E! News can exclusively report that Teresa is not joining the ABC reality hit. And she hasn’t even been approached for the new season, which kicks off on Sept. 12, though ABC was interested in having Teresa as part of the season 22 cast after she finished serving her 15-month prison sentence, according to the Bravo reality star’s attorney.

“Dancing With The Stars approached Teresa about doing the season that aired in March but unfortunately with Teresa having just come home and with Joe Giudice going away in March, we had to decline the offer,” Teresa’s attorney James Leonard Jr. told E! News in an exclusive statement. “We have not had any discussions with Dancing With The Stars since that time and as such any story linking Teresa to the upcoming season are untrue. Teresa remains a fan of the show and if the timing is right and both sides are interested, I could absolutely see her doing the show at some time down the road.”

Simone Biles Attempts to Put the DWTS Season 23 Rumors To Rest

We’ve reported on Simone several times, but now she kinda puts the rumors to rest…for now. She does say she would love to do it in the spring and the team would love to dance with Derek. Nice interview from WWD – click the link to read the whole thing.

WWD: Will you appear on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars?” Have you talked to anyone about that? Do you have a wish-list partner?
S.B.: Yes, I would really love to, but my schedule is very busy. I would love to do the spring season if they would let me. Everyone would love to have Derek [Hough] as a partner. But maybe if we got someone new that would be cool.
