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.
US Weekly has a fun article up on the celebs who they think are dancing in the new season of Dancing With The Stars which we’ve heard before, but, here is a new name to add to the mix….Nick Viall!! Let us know what you think!
While Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe won’t be competing thanks to some not-so-fortuitous timing, there’s a chance another member of Bachelor Nation could: none other than two-time Bachelorette runner-up Nick Viall. Sources tell Us Weekly exclusively that the castoff has met with DWTS producers and could be added to the roster before the new cast is announced.
Could Hayes Grier and Sofia Vergara be dancing in Dancing With The Stars Season 21? Very suspicious tweets, follows, and an instagram below. Good job Court and DWTSgossip via @jelly_jones for these finds. Click on screencaps twice to see in a large size…
A source confirms to ET that pop singer Andy Grammer — whose hit song, “Honey, I’m Good” has been stuck in our heads all summer — will be joining season 21 of the hit ABC competition series.
Man, this cast is the hottest ever!
And don’t forget…
Ready for the reveal of even more DWTS cast members? Check back to ETonline on Thursday, August 27 for the announcement of two new competitors!
Along with Nick Carter, Hollywood Life is reporting Alexa PenaVega is joining the new cast of Dancing With The Stars Season 21. If true, what do you think?
Nick and Alex will be on the show next season, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. So exciting! They will be great additions to the cast and will definitely spice up the dance floors with their moves.
Nick is no stranger to dancing. After all, he’s one-fifth of one of the great boy bands of all time — the Backstreet Boys! But this time he’ll be dancing solo. Nick is currently filming Syfy’s new TV movie, Dead 7, alongside his bandmates Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean.
Alexa is best known for her role as Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids movies. She has been recurring on the hit ABC show Nashville as Kiley Brenner. She also had a role on The CW’s The Tomorrow People in 2014. She married Big Time Rush star Carlos Pena, Jr. in 2014.
ETA: E Online is also reporting on Alexa and Nick now too. They also report Demi Moore, Jodie Sweetin, Caitlyn Jenner, and Rick Schroeder all said no. More below and at the link.
Moore was a regular presence in the ballroom during season 20 asRumer Willis, her oldest daughter withBruce Willis, competed, going onto win the mirrorball trophy with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.
It would have been an epic follow-up, of course, to have Demi on board (no question the 52-year-old could still rock the glitter and spandex!), but we are told it’s definitely not happening—at least, not this time around.
So who else is in for the new season? Well, according to sources connected to the show, Nick Carter and Alexa Vega are in talks, but haven’t yet signed contracts.
E! News also has learned that Jodie Sweetin also was offered a DWTS gig and very much wanted to do the show, but had to back out because of her new Netflix series Fuller House, which is currently in production. So…there’s always next year? And maybe she can bring Uncle Jesse along?
Caitlyn Jenner and Rick Schroeder also were approached by DWTS, but turned it down. Schroeder is instead starring in NBC’s Coat of Colors, the movie based on Dolly Parton’s life–he’ll play her father. And Jenner, of course, is currently starring in E!’s I Am Cait on Sunday nights.
Casting Director Deena Katz Talks About Casting Caitlyn Jenner For Dancing With The Stars In The Future
Gossip Cop talked with Deena Katz about Caitlyn Jenner. The Casting Director for Dancing With The Stars hasn’t given up trying to get Caitlyn to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Though right now she says, “let Caitlyn become Caitlyn.” Here is more…
Caitlyn Jenner needs to get her personal life in order before being invited to appear on “Dancing with the Stars,” says the show’s casting director and co-executive producer Deena Katz. “I think Caitlyn would be great on the show,” Katz exclusively tells Gossip Cop, adding, “I think right now she needs to figure out her life. Trust me, we will be fighting for her at some point. But for now, let Caitlyn become Caitlyn.”
“Coming on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is a big huge burst,” says Katz. She explains to Gossip Cop, “It kind of turns your life upside down. Let’s let her get her normal life before we disrupt it all over again, but she’d be great.”
I hope she dances someday. To read more, see Gossip Cop.
Does it seen odd that Kobe Bryant would attend the Dancing With The Stars Finale last season? And he did so rather than staying home and watching an important night in the NBA. It’s true. If you look below, you can see a photo of him and his wife attending the show. Not only that, note how he has been following some Dancing With The Stars Pros (Mark, Derek, and Val) and Riker Lynch. Not sure if it’s possible he would dance (or maybe his wife Vanessa Laine Bryant?), but, it’s an entertaining thought. A huge thanks to Dee @upclose22 for bringing this to our attention. How I’d love for this to happen. What do you think?
Kobe has also been on the show once before in 2010….
ETA: Also, here is Vanessa with Derek Hough and Misty Copeland. Thanks Dee! Read more..
