This is too cool for words. Yesterday, swimmer Diana Nyad was a guest on The Katie Show. She talks with Katy all about her life and how she never gave up no matter how tough things got …and especially when some tried to tell her she was too old to do something. At one point in the conversation, she tells Katie one of things on her Bucket List is to do Dancing With The Stars. After that, Katie has a surprise and brings out Dancing With The Stars Val Chmerkovskiy. What an incredible life story with an amazing inspirational message. You can watch Diana and Val dancing in the second video at the 3:40 minute mark. We better keep a ‘watch out” on this one too as maybe she will be asked to dance on Dancing With The Stars Season 18? Thanks to Vin for letting us know on this interview yesterday.
Could something be in the works for US Figure Skating Champions Meryl Davis and/or Charlie White to dance on Dancing With The Stars especially since they support the idea if they were asked? Not sure, but, US Figure Skating tweeted this tweet and then Charlie White RTed it at his twitter account….
What’s more, check out Charlie’s recent “follows” at twitter.
Makes one definitely wonder especially when then Olympics are over before the new season of Dancing With The Stars begins. Thanks to Heather for bringing this to our attention. I would die if this were to happen. I love them both so much!! Let us know what you think!
How about Bruce Jenner for Dancing With The Stars Season 18? According to US Weekly, he’s close to being “locked in”. This isn’t the first time this rumor has cropped up. Bruce was rumored to dance in Season 14 as well.
Bruce Jenner is shining his dancing shoes! The 64-year-old former Olympian is in talks to join Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.
“He’s dying to do it,” an insider tells Us. “The show is close to locking him in.”
Jenner has stepped into the ballroom before — as an audience member. The star previously cheered on stepdaughter Kim Kardashian, 33, as she took 11th place in Season 7 with professional dancer Mark Ballas. Kim’s younger brother, Rob Kardashian, 26, followed in her footsteps when he joined Season 13 of the dancing competition in 2011. He and Cheryl Burke were eliminated in week 10. “He would have fun with it,” Rob told Us.
Ok, I think I’m game, and maybe Cheryl might be a cool partner? Let us know what you think!!
Sarah Palin has ruled out ever competing on Dancing with the Stars.
The former Alaska governor’s daughter Bristol Palin famously starred on the ABC reality show in 2010, but Sarah has downplayed ever dancing in the ballroom.
“Oh, my gosh, that is something you don’t want to [see],” she told Extra.
The politician went on to joke: “I’m no Mario Lopez and I’m no Bristol Palin, I’d be clomping around and falling down all over the dance floor, man. I wouldn’t make it past the judges [on] day one.”

We’ve seen this rumor before in November and now we’re seeing it again. Below is more from the Daily Mail and the Mirror today about Kelly Brook meeting with the producers of Dancing With The Stars to dance next season. Keep in mind the Daily Mail and the Mirror have been known to make up their own stories and sensationalize while you read this. I really do hope this is true though. She’d be great and it doesn’t bother me that she danced before on Strictly Come Dancing. Let us know what you think….
Kelly Brook’s dream of international fame may well be realized following a successful meeting with producers of Dancing With The Stars.
The 34-year-old model and actress is said to be primed for an appearance on the long-running celebrity talent show after impressing bosses during a recent trip to Los Angeles.
It’s understood that Kelly was giving a glowing recommendation from Dancing With The Stars regular Derek Hough – the former boyfriend of Cheryl Cole – prompting curious producers to offer her an exclusive front-row seat at a recording of the hit show.
A source told The Mirror: ‘They love British stars on the show, and Kelly is exactly what it needs – she’s down to earth, she’s going to look amazing in all those ballroom outfits and she’s not afraid of putting in the work.’
The British star is already familiar with the ballroom floor having participated in British variant Strictly Come Dancing in 2007.
Partnered with Kiwi Brendan Cole – a Latin American dance specialist – Kelly won glowing praise from the judging panel, but her participation in the show abruptly ended in week nine after father Kenneth Parsons lost his battle with cancer.
‘Kelly is gorgeous and has great dancing ability,’ the source added. ‘No celebrity has ever appeared on two versions of the show but they are considering breaking the rules for her.’
MailOnline have contacted Kelly’s representatives for further comment.
In a new Strictly Come Dancing interview with Telly Mix, Bruno Tonioli talks of how hard it must be for a celebrity to take on the dance floor. It’s also something he’d never do. He points out how he’s done his time since it’s been 40 years he’s been in the industry. Incredible, isn’t it? Good read and note below how Bruno would like to see David Beckham or Kate Moss dance. Good idea. They would be really cool gets….on either on “Strictly Come Dancing” or “Dancing With The Stars”. What do you think?
“For years I’ve asked for David Beckham. he would be so good, old Goldenballs!
“I’ve even suggested that the BBC send him some special golden dancing shoes to tempt him.”
Bruno added: “He looks good in a suit, so he’d be great.. or Kate Moss!”
Meanwhile, the spicy Italian panelist explained he doesn’t envy the position of the stars who take to the dancefloor, saying he wouldn’t like to compete in the show himself.
The 58-year-old said: “I would never do it, I know what hard work it is!
“Next September will be my 40th year in the industry. I think I’ve done my bit.”

Thanks to Vin for sending us this “watch out”. Apparently, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss would love to dance on Dancing With The Stars! Below is more from Enstarz…
One of the stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta might be appearing on the next season of Dancing With the Stars if she gets her way.
Kandi Burruss, who is one of the current cast members on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is interested in appearing as a contestant on season 18 of Dancing With the Stars.
One of Burruss’ followers on Twitter asked her, “Sis, would [you] ever do DWTS??” to which she responded, “”I would love to.”
Considering Burruss has previous musical experience as part of the R&B group Xscape, she may be a perfect fit for the show. Younger singers have traditionally done well on the show, such as Nicole Scherzinger and Kellie Pickler.
So, what do you think? Would you like to see Kandi dance?
