DWTS Season 16 Rumors: Victor Ortiz, Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian, and Mama June?

Not sure how true this is, but, today, the New York Daily News is reporting in their “Confidential” gossip column that boxer Victor Ortiz has been signed to do Dancing With The Stars Season 16. Their insider also said ABC is interested in Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian and Honey Boo Boo’s mother, Mama June. More below….

Ortiz is ready to rumba
Boxer Victor Ortiz is going from seeing stars to dancing with them. Sources tells us the 26-year-old fighter who was knocked out when he dropped his guard against Floyd Mayweather in 2011 has signed on for the upcoming season of “Dancing With the Stars.” Our insider also says that ABC is interested in adding Emily Maynard, Kourtney Kardashian and Honey Boo Boo’s recently slimmed down mother, Mama June, to the new cast.

What do you think? I don’t mind Victor or Emily, but, please NO to Kourtney or Honey Boo Boo’s mother!! How is she a star?

Let’s get Miss Heidi’s perspective and be sure to let us know your thoughts too.

Heidi: Sounds to me like Victor is the only real rumor in this bunch and the rest are just an after thought. In fact, Victor might be the first actual rumor of the season. Everything prior to this has been campaigns and wishful thinking on the part of some “stars”.  As for the other names? I think the Daily News just threw those in there to round out their article. I think they heard ONE name and asked for some other speculation of their source.  BTW, I thought we had rumored this guy before…but that was Tito Ortiz of the UFC.  I’ve had enough of the Kardashians to last a lifetime and Honey Boo Boo’s mom?? Heaven help us, the dumbing down of America continues. That goes for all the K women too, actually.

More Dreamers and Wannabes For DWTS 16: Baltimore Raven Jacoby Jones And “Small Wonder’s” Jerry Supiran

Last night, Jimmy Kimmell interviewed one of the Baltimore Ravens wide receivers, Jacoby Jones, who has been known to dance after making a touch down. Jimmy asked him if he’d do Dancing With The Stars and he definitely would. The Baltimore Sun reports about it too. Now, this would be cool! What do you think? Thanks to @DWTSgossip for this find…

Also, TMZ is reporting that “Small Wonder” star Jerry Supiran is “dying” to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Here is a take from the link….

But now, at 39 years old … and after various restaurant jobs … Supiran tells TMZ he wants to make a TV comeback and thinks he would be a perfect fit for “Dancing.”

“I’m hoping there will still be interest since people are all about nostalgia these days … hopefully producers will give me a chance.”

Supiran says he hasn’t heard back from the show … yet … but if he does make it, he’s GOTTA DO THE ROBOT!!!!!!

I’m not sure on this one being I’m not familiar with him? We look forward to your thoughts as always. ;)

DWTS Season 16 – William Shatner Figuring Out The Schedules For DWTS?

As you know from a previous posting, Dancing With The Stars host Tom Bergeron has been on a quest to get William Shatner to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Tom told The View ladies last week that he saw William at a recent event and William looked at him strangely when Tom mentioned it. Well, the saga continues. Last night, William Shatner posted this tweet (look below) about “figuring out the schedules for DWTS” which makes one wonder if Tom’s quest is working? Then again, maybe they are just trying to figure out when to have dinner. I also love the mention on Jeri Ryan who, by the way, tweeted “we’re in!” back to William. Wouldn’t she be a great candidate for Dancing With The Stars as well? Tom is communicating with William at his twitter too. Before William tweeted him, Tom extended an invite while taping America’s Funniest Videos. Anyway, what an interesting tweet from William Shatner. Yes, taking things out of context or grasping at straws most likely, but, it’s fun to speculate on and talk about none the less.

WilliamShatnerTweet

Heidi: Odds are good that they’re all just screwing around – I seem to recall a lot of back and forth joking with Tom about Shatner and Jeri being on DWTS. What I find most funny is how Tom is now doing casting. I believe he also tried to get Bill on AFV this past week. :-) Really, though, the dude is funny. I would love to see him on DWTS. I came to appreciate him on Boston Legal. :-) By the way: pretty sure that Tom could do a better job at casting DWTS than the current crew. :-D

Dancing with the Stars Season 16 – Eric Idle Another No??

Gosh darn it, this rumor stuff is frustrating as…you know what. :-) Eric Idle is a fantastic funny man and he just tweeted this:

Eric Idle

Now, he is hilariously funny and responsible for Spamalot and Monty Python (and a zillion other things) – which I adored. This, of course, means he could be joking. But Eric Idle doesn’t seem the type to joke about DWTS – or give a rat’s arse about it at all. So, did he really turn it down? Or is he just joking? I WISH he would do the show!! He would be amazing. He would have to re-do Nancy And Tristan’s dance to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”. :-)

And for GOD’S SAKE when will we hear a good, solid rumor of someone who we would LIKE to see on the show, instead of the endless parade of scary people or “NO!”s?? :-D It’s making me loopy. Er.

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. :-)

Dina Lohan Tells Mario Lopez She’d Like To Dance on Dancing With The Stars

During a new interview with Mario Lopez of Extra, Dina Lohan tells him she’d like to dance on Dancing With The Stars. She also tells Mario who she’d like to dance with. Wanna guess?? ……brace yourselves…..MAKS!! Regardless of how strict Maks is, that’s what she likes. For the part on Dancing With The Stars and Maks, see the 1:40 mark…

This isn’t the first season Dina has said she’d like to dance. She was overheard saying the same in Season 13 and it was said she was also in talks with producers.

So, what do you think if this were to happen this time? If I can’t have Lindsay, I’d take Dina and watching her dance with Maks would be fun I think.

Tom Bergeron Interviewed About Dancing With The Stars, Wants William Shatner To Dance

Tom Bergeron was a guest on The View today! He was asked straight up about the controversial rumors of Lindsay Lohan and Lance Armstrong dancing on Dancing With The Stars. He said he’d rather have William Shatner dance instead (Me TOO!). William looked at him strangely at a recent even when Tom mentioned it to him.

The View ladies also commended Tom for his long running work on America’s Funniest Home Videos for which he is filming currently.

Unfortunately, it was a short segment. I was hoping he’d be asked on the Dancing With The Stars cast announcement, but, he wasn’t. :(

DWTS 16 Wannabes And Dreamers – Perez Hilton, Bobby Bones, Barbara Evans, Deena Cortese

Is this guy for real? Being he’s a total unknown, Miss Heidi and I think this guy might be just messing with us…or dreaming about the possibility of dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Not sure which, but we kind of doubt TPTB are this desperate?

BobbyBones

Heidi: I think he’s yanking his followers’ chains, and that of anyone crazy enough to believe him. :-) Seriously, this dude is way less well known that the chick who was Miss Alabama that Brent Musburger has a crush on. Dude, please. I think you joke. I hope it’s a joke and not delusions of grandeur. :-)

Vogue: And then there is Deena Cortese who Heidi reported about earlier in a previous posting. She’s been campaigning relentlessly to the point it won’t go away. She’s even giving interviews trying to secure a spot. Here is a take from a new interview with MTV. Watch out Mark Ballas! Deena has her sights on YOU! 8O

What advantages would you have in the competition?
I’m small, so they could, like, throw me all over the place, you know? I could do tricks, I feel.

Jersey has their own lifestyle and type of dancing. We just have moves, and we have attitude, too, so I feel like I could put a little attitude into the classical stuff, and just show them what Jersey’s all about. I would bring life and excitement, and I’m bubbly. I think it would be different to have a meatball on set, you know?

Who would your ideal partner be and why?
I feel like me and Mark (Ballas) would probably be good, because he’s short, and he has, like, that Italian look. I can’t have someone that’s super tall.

Heidi: This girl has got to stop!! I can’t see legit rumors on my tweetdeck cuz of her (and her fans) continuous campaigning! Please, I beg you, STOP. Out of control. DWTS producers – you dudes better not reward begging. :-) As for Mark, his response was “I’m not THAT short!!” which made me LOL for real. ;-)

Vogue: Also, take a look at this tweet from yesterday made by someone named Barbara Evans of MTV. Be sure you check out her twitter when you get a chance….and here I thought I had spelling and typing issues? :)


I wanna be on DANCIN WIFF THA STAHS!!!!! #DWTS
@BabsEvansMTV
Barbara Evans

Heidi: I dunno, TPTB might find this sort of train wreck attractive. :-) You know how they are. She’d be tweeting about the show constantly, of course no one doing a DWTS twitter search would see it because she’d misspell the hashtag. :-)

Vogue: Last, but not least, PEREZ HILTON!! Last weekend, Perez made a video telling Dancing With The Stars to well …uuhhh, in nice words…. “to “stick it” since they turned him down to dance again. He even made a video about it which you can watch at this link. I think Perez just cut his own throat. If they were thinking of hiring him at some point in time, they won’t hire him for sure now. Also, what about his supposed insiders who have given him Dancing With The Stars rumors and scoops in the past? If I was them and after seeing the video, I’d never do so again.

Heidi: While I appreciate Perez’s new found sensitivity(ishness) – kuddos for trying – I still have to say that I don’t think he’s really a star. And I also think he’s not really got great sources any more. He almost always gets scooped by EVERYONE. Including us! But of everyone on this list, he’s the one I wouldn’t mind seeing – maybe we could see what the big deal is, why he has friends in H-wood. Tough luck on Derek though, dude. We all want him and we can’t have him. But I always knew you were hot for him. ;-) You showed it in much the same way as you’re currently showing your affection for DWTS. :-D

Lance Armstrong Turns Down Dancing With The Stars

First Lindsay Lohan and now Lance Armstrong? 8O I didn’t mind the thought of Lindsay dancing, but, I’m drawing the line at Lance dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Please, let’s hope Lance doesn’t change his mind. Below is more from Entertainment Weekly. If you’d like to read more, see the link.

Lance Armstrong may not be able to race the Tour de France again. But ABC definitely wants him on Dancing With the Stars.

Sources say the ABC reality hit offered the former professional cyclist a spot on the upcoming spring edition of the veteran reality series. Armstrong declined.

Though the network approached Armstrong before his recent doping confession, we suspect Armstrong’s high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey hasn’t dulled the network’s interest.

Heidi: This is seriously out of control. All we’re hearing about is people who are trainwrecks saying no. Should I be thankful? Should I be worried that they will find someone WORSE?? The article claims they asked him pre-confession, but still. This is how we’re going to pursue Season 16?? Come ON, producers. Who’s next? People in Jail? Dancing with the Criminally Insane??

Lindsay Lohan Turns Down ‘Lucrative Offer’ From Dancing with the Stars

If true, I’m sad. I’d love to see Lindsay Lohan dance and a what a cool way to show another side to herself than what tabloids report!!! I love her as an actress and nothing will change that. Below is more from TMZ for how Lindsay turned down a huge offer from Dancing With The Stars!!

Lindsay Lohan’s ego might be her downfall — because TMZ has learned, she just shut down a lucrative offer to do “Dancing with the Stars” … because she doesn’t want to do reality TV.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us, the actress was made several offers to join the DWTS cast this upcoming season — offers that maxed out at $550,000.

But Lindsay — who still owes hundreds of thousands in back taxes — shut them down, telling friends she’d never consider doing reality TV … she wants to stick to films.

You can read more at TMZ. What do you think? You can tell us. :D
