For Now, No Plans For Dancing With The Stars LIVE In Las Vegas

According to the Las Vegas Weekly, there are no plans to reopen a Dancing With The Stars LIVE show in Las Vegas even after the Tropicana redesigned the stage for production requirements. Below is more in detail.

The beautifully redesigned Tropicana Theater will not serve as the home for the stage version of “Dancing With the Stars.” At one point the production was expected to set up for an extended residency beginning in August, but is instead moving its equipment out of the hotel. The chief reason for the room’s lavish redesign was to satisfy the production requirements of that show. No word, yet, as to the why of it all, or what is planned at the Trop in the absence of “DWTS,” which did brisk business last year in the old Folies showroom.

The “DWTS” live show is still being performed on Holland America cruise lines, with performances by former dance pros and contestants scheduled through the summer and again in January. And, at least one popular longtime Vegas entertainer has expressed interest in moving a show into the new Tropicana Theater, a showcase that would be a great fit for that room if it ever could come off.

This is sad. I hope they can find a way to make the show happen in the future as I always looked forward to seeing this show in Las Vegas one day?

By the way, Courtney saw the first Dancing With The Stars LIVE in Las Vegas show. If you’d like to read her fun review and see pictures, see this link.

So the Dancing With The Stars: Live in Las Vegas show has wrapped up it’s first run, but, not without a big bang. Watch below for how Joey Fatone’s fellow cast members surprised him with a special N’SYNC performance to “BYE BYE BYE”!! Nice and wouldn’t this be a cool song for the pros to perform on the TV version of Dancing With The Stars? To Joey!

So, now Joey is off to Los Angeles to his new home. At twitter, he wonders on his new future?


Finally getting to hop on a plane and head to my new home in Cali … Wonder what twists n turns are waiting for me there

Melissa Rycroft, Joey Fatone, and Pamela Anderson “likely” to Dance and More DWTS News

It’s been a great day for news and rumors and here is more from Entertainment Weekly. They say Melissa Rycroft, Joey Fatone, and Pamela Anderson are “likely” to dance (Yay, I hope this is true and I especially love Pamela!). Look what they also report on Carson Kressley, Bristol Palin and Stacy Keibler. Be sure to read the full story at the link.

The industry whisperers have been quieter than usual this cycle, but we’re still hearing names of a few celebrities who are expected to return to the ballroom: Melissa Rycroft (Season 8), Joey Fatone (Season 4) and Pamela Anderson (Season 10) are likely to don sequins when the show resumes this fall.

Also, we hear Executive Producer Conrad Green is injecting a new twist to the casting process this year:

ABC will let fans pick a returning star. The network will announce the names of three former Dancing contestants (we’re hearing Carson Kressley is one of them) and let viewers vote on which celebrity gets the final spot on the show.

And what about Bristol Palin? With her Lifetime show bombing isn’t she ready to return to the reality TV big leagues? No intel there yet. Though we’re hearing that you shouldn’t expect another attention-getting Dancing alum, Stacy Keibler, to take a break from George Clooney to hit the dance floor anytime soon.

So, what do you think? Interesting that Carson may be one of the people we will be voting on!

Maks Chmerkovskiy Dishes On New DWTS All Star Season, New Pros, & More

Celebuzz has a new article up where dancing pro Maks Chmerkovskiy comments on the upcoming Dancing With The Stars All Star Season. He can’t wait to see who he gets for a partner. He also says there will be some new pros on the show this Season? WHA?? It’s true. Read some more details below.

“I can’t wait to see who I’m going to get. I’m going to have a great time… This is going to be the first time we don’t start from scratch but pick it up where you left off.”

What else can fans expect this upcoming season?

“We have some new pros, [as] some old pros won’t be coming back,” he coyly revealed.

“The advantage is going to be with the couple that was on a recent season… If you’re going to be paired with someone coming back from Season 2, he or she is probably going to have a bit of a harder time getting back into it than someone who was on the last season.”

MORE at Celebuzz.

New Pros?! Wow, I wonder who they will be? Henry, Sharna, Sasha?? 8O Can’t wait for Maks to be back!!

Maria Menounos Dancing With Derek Hough In New DWTS All Star Season?

Thanks to PureDWTS reader Nathan for letting us know on this tweet!!! As he and Court notified us on this in the night (Thanks Court to you as well!), “it appears as though Maria has let something rather significant slip” or is this just “too convenient”? Like Court also said, “Would she (Maria) really let the cat out of the bag just days before the announcement? But then again, David Arquette did it, & it ended up being true.” OR could their reunion have something to do with a new Docuseries Maria just landed a part in which you can read about HERE (thanks to Lori for this news!)? More speculation and details in the comments section including Miss Heidi’s and John’s thoughts.

This is getting that more interesting, isn’t it?!! Two more days and counting until the cast announcement, Guys! :D

My opinion: I like Maria, but, I’m not really wanting a repeat from last season. I’d like to see Derek dance with someone else. Penny for your thoughts?

Suspicious A Little: Could Kelly Monaco Be Dancing On DWTS All Star Season?

So, we have something to report that we’re not sure we can let slide? Yesterday afternoon @PureDWTS received a tweet from fan @_DayDreamer325 that she’s read some recaps from a fan event that Kelly Monaco will need the fans help….


@ Hey guys I think Kelly Monaco is confirmed with DWTS, I read recaps from a fan event and she said she’ll need the fans help
@_DayDreamer325
☆Ashley☆

An hour or so later @DWTSGossip tweets out this post at her twitter account making it TWO fans now tweeting that Kelly Monaco will soon need her fans help….

https://twitter.com/DWTSGossip/status/227135681007321090#

And here is where it gets a little more suspicious (then again, my suspicious nature is off the wall sometimes, lol). Doing some digging at Kelly’s twitter account, we found this tweet that Kelly made on June 30th that makes one’s eye go up a little?

Interesting too how Kelly and Cheryl Burke were seen together in Las Vegas in December. Remember this previous posting?

And I don’t know if this has any merit, but, Kelly was also a part of TV Guide’s Dancing With The Stars All Stars Dream Cast for which they asked their readers to submit their cast wishes and comment on. Remember this post that we speculated on?

So, what do you think? Could the first Season’s Dancing With The Stars Champion be dancing in the All Star Season? It wouldn’t surprise me. Kelly loved dancing and the exposure would still be great for her career.

Let’s get our Miss Heidi’s thoughts as she knows :)

Heidi: Well, my memory goes back to a time in the not too distant past when Kelly was sitting in the audience….was it during Donny’s season?? Anyway, I remember that she looked like she was being held hostage – fer instance, her contract made her be there if asked. Tom goes up to talk to her and she was pretty bitchy…my memory is a bit sketchy on it, but I remember talking to, I think, Courtney about it and we both noticed it. I seem to recall that Tom even moved away from her quickly when he realized that she was…um…unpleasant. The reason I am mentioning this is that I can’t believe she would go back to DWTS after her very obvious lack of desire to even be in the audience. Maybe she’d had an off night? Or has she become unemployed since then?? I’m not an expert on Kelly Monaco and I didn’t watch her season…but after all that, do you think she would come back and possibly get her ass handed to her by someone far more popular?? This ain’t the same show anymore, after all.

UPDATE: Soaps In Depth asked Kelly on the new rumors of her dancing for the Dancing With The Stars All Star edition. Below is what they are reporting. Thanks to PureDWTS reader DJ for this news….

“I’m not confirming or denying,” she teases, “but if I happen to do it, and I happened to have Derek [Hough as a dance partner], that would be amazing. It would be a lot of work, I have to tell you.”

Competing in DANCING while working five days a week on GH was a grueling routine for Monaco the first time around, but now she knows how to approach it. “If I were to do it this time,” she explains, “I would make sure I had Mondays and Tuesdays off from GH because I can’t be in two places at the same time. I think that’s the only way I could do it.

“If I were to do it,” Monaco adds with a smile, “I’d talk to my executive producer and ask them not to have me talk so much. I don’t mind showing up, but having to memorize everything at night is the problem. If they just had me shut up for a little bit, it would be okay!”
