Did Dancing With The Stars Ask Former Miss Alabama To Dance In DWTS Season 16? (Rumor)

Is the former Miss Alabama, Katherine Webb, contemplating an offer from Dancing With The Stars? Today, the NY Post reported that Katherine was in New York last week being photographed for the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. She was also seen at an eatery and overheard saying that Dancing With The Stars offered her a spot on the show. More below and the link!

Webb was also overheard saying that she was offered a spot in the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” but did not say whether she would participate.

As Heidi said to me privately (and I agree with her), take this “with a huge grain of salt”.

Thanks to @DWTSGossip for the find.

DWTS Season 16 Rumor: Arianny Celeste Meeting At ABC With Producers To Dance?

Arianny Celeste had a meeting today with her manager at ABC studios. Maybe this is something and maybe it’s not, but, since she was rumored as being asked to dance in Dancing With The Stars in Season 11 and she also attended a show this past season (October 16, 2012), it kind of makes one wonder?

From her twitter:

DWTSRumor3

See her site for a post and a picture of she and her manager from today.

In case you don’t know, Arianny is a model and a UFC octagon girl. You can read more on her here. Thanks to Courtney as she saw the tweet too and helped me with some UFC corrections.

Pretty…what do you think if there is something in the making?

Maia Campbell on DWTS Season 16 – Rumor or Campaign??

Were any of you fans to “In The House“? Well, last night, a cast member of the show, Maia Campbell, tweeted this tweet below. The “you just never know” leaves a person wondering depending on it’s context? Though I’m thinking it’s just a campaign post. So, if this were to happen, would you like to see Maia Campbell on Dancing With The Stars? I think I’d be open to it. She might a great partner for Maks or Val. Heidi?


RT if You would like to see me on the next season of #dwts you just never know @

Heidi: I go back and forth. The way she wrote it almost seems like she’s pondering an offer, but odds are great that she’s just trying to get something going. And campaigning never works. :-) I’m guessing this is a campaign – but Vogue is right. We are right in the time frame when rumors start to come out and the producers are hitting it hard to find people to dance. Show starts in March, which means rehearsals start in late February, right? I don’t remember the exact date off the top of my head, but they are running out of time.

New Miss America Mallory Hagan Would Do Dancing With The Stars In A Heartbeat

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway interviewed the new Miss America, Mallory Hagan, in New York’s Times Square this week after her win. As Miss America fans know, she did an amazing tap dance for her talent routine. He asks her is she’d ever do Dancing With The Stars. She said she’d “be on it (Dancing With The Stars) in a heartbeat”. She raved about Cheryl Burke being a judge on Miss America and now she feels like they are “already friends”. Mallory points out how they haven’t ever had a Miss America on Dancing With The Stars. Wow, so true and I can see this happening. What’s more, I’d love it Mallory did Dancing With The Stars. What do you think? Let’s get Miss Heidi’s thoughts….

Heidi: I’m not a fan of Miss America, the pageant. Don’t hate it, just am not a fan. And that might be why I say that I can’t see it happening – I mean, what kind of viewership did the show get?? And is there any way that the pageant would give her the time to actually do the show? I doubt it very much. And if she has to wait for her reign to be over? Then she’s no longer relevant unless she parlays it into a higher profile gig. Hell, the Bachelor chicks are more famous than Miss America, I think. Sorry, Vogue – I don’t see it happening. :-)

ADDING: Below is a new interview with Miss America and the WSJ Digital Network. They ask her about Dancing With The Stars and think it would be unfair if she danced. She defends herself and thinks it would be the best thing for the Miss America Organization. So true. I am so dreaming for this girl to dance!!

Ann Romney Had Several Meetings With Dancing With The Stars Producers To Dance

Sorry, Kids! It’s just not going to happen! 8O

Our sources say Ann and producers had several meetings to try to hash out the details, but Ann ultimately decided against it.

A rep for Romney tells TMZ, “Ann Romney was approached, but she declined. She will not be appearing on ‘Dancing with the Stars.'”

More at TMZ.

I have to say I’m not too broken up about this news, are you? However, like Heidi said in a previous posting, she would have been better than Sarah Palin.

DWTS Season 16 RUMOR: Emily Maynard To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

We’ve been down this route before with Radar Online, so be sure you take this rumor with a grain of salt. I will say though that Emily Maynard has all the makings of fitting on Dancing With The Stars perfectly. Do you agree? Below is more from Radar Online via Star Magazine.

Emily Maynard is ditching her search for true love and putting on her dancing shoes to jive away her heartache!

The newly-single Bachelorette is officially locked in as a contestant on the upcoming 16th season of Dancing With The Stars, reveals the new issue of Star magazine, and while it is news to the fans of both ABC shows, Emily has known about it for six months!

“When she signed her contract to be on The Bachelorette, ABC also had her sign on to commit to doing Dancing with the Stars. She loves being in the limelight,” a source told Star, adding that while some of the other hoofers are desperate to land certain pros as their partners, all Emily seemingly cares about is dancing her way into a television career.

“Emily told me the real reason she wants to do the show is to help get herself her own talk show,” dished the insider. “She’s terrified of losing her fame. She loves being famous and has wanted it her entire life.”

You can read the full article at Radar Online. Picture above courtesy of Zimbio Pictures.

So, if true, who do you see Emily dancing with? I say MAKS!! :D

Heidi: You want to put sweet little Emily with Maks!?!? :-) How about Tristan?? Or Henry?? Or anyone other than Maks or Tony?? :-D Seriously, though – Radar Online went from having a great track record to bombing for a few seasons in a row. It would not surprise me in the slightest if Emily were to show up, but I kinda doubt it. Really, the producers need to get away from casting their family on this show and branch out. But hey, maybe Deena needs a new client. :::snort::: I would have to look, but I also think that “rumors” (or fabrications) that come out this far in advance usually turn out to be WRONG. We’ll see.

Vogue: Good point. I wouldn’t mind her paired with Tristan or Henry as well….and Derek (yes, I still hope he will change his mind and come back? :( )

Heidi: NO DEREK! I forbid him coming back to this show. Please, god, no. But if he were, he might end up with her. They seem to LOVE putting him with other blondes. Anyway…I think if Derek is back on this show it’s because they wouldn’t let him out. They’ve monkeyed around with pros and contracts before, so…

Finale Review, Jordyn Wieber Would Love To Dance On Dancing With The Stars

Afterbuzz reviewed the finale of Dancing With The Stars! They run through each of the dances. They also talk of the inconsistency and unfairness of the judges and scoring for what we’ve been upset on too. Even more interesting is that they also interviewed Jordyn Wieber, Olympic Gold Medalist and one of “The Fierce Five” who danced with Shawn and Derek in their Freestyle. She comments that she loved Dancing With The Stars and had so much fun, she’d like to dance on the show as well. Is she was going to pick a partner, she’d pic Va Chmerkovskiy. She talked to him and she likes him very much. More in detail below….

What do you think? I think Afterbuzz nailed it on so many issues that we’re having with the show. I also think Jordon sounds serious about wanting to do this show. I’d have no issues with it. We better put this one on “watch out”.

Ann Romney Doesn’t Rule Out Dancing With The Stars

Did any of you notice Anne Romney sitting in the audience this past week on Dancing With The Stars? I didn’t, but, according to the Boston Herald, she was in the audience with her two sons, wives, and a few grandkids. Apparently someone asked her is she would dance on Dancing With The Stars. Below is how she answered…

She won’t be tripping the light fantastic at any inaugural balls, but “Dancing with the Stars” fan Ann Romney said it’s not impossible that a Romney might some day hoof it for the mirror ball trophy on the hot ABC dance contest!

“But I … I don’t think so,” laughed Mrs. Mitt.

You can read more at the Boston Herald including her thoughts on Tony Dovolani. You can also see a picture of Ann in the audience.

My thoughts? The Boston Herald says to file it under “Dancing Queen”, but, I just don’t know? 8O Heidi?

Heidi: I saw her in the audience but thought I was mistaken.  Eh. Better her than Sarah Palin. That said, she doesn’t have the cache that a Sarah Palin does. If she doesn’t do it this spring, I think she can forget about it – if they would even ask her then.

New Casting Watchout Begins: Tori Spelling A Little Nervous To Do Dancing With The Stars

And so the casting watch out for the new season of Dancing With The Stars begins! Already? Yes, already! :) Though don’t count on Tori Spelling being cast in the next new season of Dancing With The Stars. According to Zap2it, she used to say “maybe” to dancing on the show, but, now she’s “a little nervous”. Read why below….

“I used to say, ‘Maybe,'” Spelling tells Zap2it, “but it’s gotten so crazy-competitive and so amazing. The people who are doing it aren’t like celebrities trying it, they’re like dancers. I mean, they have Olympians on there who excel in gymnastics. And look at [‘All-Stars’ winner] Melissa Rycroft — she was a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, so obviously, she’s going to be a good dancer.

“I think it would be embarrassing now to just have actors with no dancing experience,” Spelling adds. “I find myself to be a good dancer, but I don’t know that I’m of that caliber. I think I’d be a little nervous to compete.”

You can read more at Zap2it. I’m kind of glad she might not dance. Then again, you never know how someone might change your opinion. I’ll never forget how I (and many of you too!) felt upon hearing the news Nancy Grace would be dancing on Dancing With The Stars in Season 13. She quickly changed many of us around.

Heidi: Then Nancy went back to her usual job and turned many of us (like me) back to our original opinion. And you don’t want to know if you’re a fan. :-)  Tori on the other hand, would probably be fine. She doesn’t bother me in the slightest. But she’s right – DWTS isn’t for the faint of heart. :-)
