Watch Out: Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss Wants To Dance On DWTS

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?

DWTS18 Rumor: Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi Practicing Moves For Dancing With The Stars Season 18?

Yesterday, The Shahs Of Sunset’s Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, posted the instagram below with a quote that said, “Practicing my moves with @cherylburke for Dancing With The Stars! I’m not quite sure what I’m doing here but it’s better than my twerking! #Shahs #GG #DWTS #GreatNight #GettingOurGrooveOn #Fart“. I kinda think she just meant this randomly, but, hey, you never know right? Enstarz and Celeb Dirty Laundry (thanks Vin!) have also picked up on the story drawing further attention to it. Really….who is she? I’ve never heard of her?

DWTS18 Watchout: “Pretty Little Liars” Shay Mitchell?

Steph, one of our readers, sent us some news about Val Chmerkovksiy that sounded interesting and something we may need to keep a watch on. Is it possible he is trying to recruit Shay Mitchell of “Pretty Little Liars” or could something be in the works for her to dance? We’ll let you read on further for what she sent us.

He did a twitter Q&A on Friday and someone asked his ideal partner, and Val being Val was of course a little cheeky about it and said: “She pretty, little, and don’t tell the truth ;)” AKA Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars. Backtracking slightly, he tweeted to Shay a few weeks ago “It’s already choreographed”. He wasn’t responding to her and she never replied so there is really no context for what his tweet meant. I know he started following her on Twitter after she came to see Brant perform though.

From her side, she posted on IG after her season wrapped that she had something new in the works she was excited about and the comments were all about her doing DWTS. Shortly after she took it down from IG.

It could be nothing, it could be Val trying to recruit her, it could be Val has a celeb crush (lol), but still, just wanted to let you know to be on the lookout. I honestly don’t think she would be able to do it with her shooting schedule but who knows.

THANKS Steph and good eye!!x

DWTS Season 18 Rumor: Will Renee Zellweger Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Who knows how true this new rumor is. Though you know us, we can’t ignore anyone. Below is more from Showbiz Spy about the possibility of Renee Zellweger dancing on Dancing With The Stars.

“The producers are fixated on Renee, in part because she hasn’t done much dancing at all since Chicago more than ten years ago and there’s this real mystery about her and what she’s up to.

“They keep raising the amount of money they are willing to give her in the hopes that she’ll say yes, and the theory is that if they can get her to sign on, then it would attract some other really prominent Oscar winning stars — who wouldn’t normally do reality TV — to fall in step.

“Now that the rule that stars had to be total dance novices has been broken, it opens the door wide for someone like Renee, who hoofed it in Chicago, to strut her stuff.

“The DWTS masterminds think the idea of having a theme of Oscar winners would be a sure ratings-grabber.

“And it would be the perfect springtime ABC tie-in because the network already controls the rights to the Academy Awards show.”

So, what do you think? Do you like the idea of Renee dancing? I’m not a big fan, but, she’d be cool to get!!

ETA: Below is some Hollyscoop news on this…

DWTS Season 18 Rumor: Tori Spelling To Dance So She Can Rehab Image?

According to Radar Online, Tori Spelling is interested in doing the show so she can rehab her image. Below is more from the link. Note: this isn’t the first time this rumor has circulated. In Season 16, Tori was rumored to be thinking about doing Dancing With The Stars as well.

Producers of DWTS have approached the former 90210 star “to appear on the show in the past, but she has always declined because of other various projects Tori was working on,” a source told Radar.

“Tori has now decided to make herself available and wants to appear on the upcoming season which is scheduled to begin in March 2014. The main reason Tori wants to go on is to rehab her image in the aftermath of the fallout from her book. She doesn’t want the public to think she goes around picking on Katie Holmes and Martha Stewart.”

You can read more at Radar Online about her book, etc.

So, what do you think? Tori Spelling for Dancing With The Stars Season 18?

Cheryl Burke Wants Khloe Kardashian To Dance On DWTS, Said She Would Win

PureDWTS reader Lois has a way of gathering up our feelings with her Dancing With The Stars poems and this time is no different…..

TWAS THE WEEK AFTER

Twas the week after our favorite dancing show
And all through the house, TVs have no glow

Not even a peep from Tom Bergeron we hear
No pros performing sparkling dances are near

No sequined costumes flowing across the floor
No pitter-patter of dancing feet, oh no, no more

Where is the band, did Harold Wheeler disappear
The music stopped, we have no tones for our ear

The couples have all gone home, it just can’t be
There is no more dancing for our eyes to see

What shall we do until Season 17 comes back
Our DVRs and YouTube will take up the slack

We blow a kiss good-bye to a season of dance
Oh how we wish we had just one other chance

To see the dancers again in all their regal glory
Return soon dancing show to tell another story!

Written By Lois A Troutman, May 27, 2013

WE MISS YOU, WE MOURN YOU, WE SHED A TEAR, OUR LOVE WE SEND!
DANCING WITH THE STARS COME BACK AROUND THE DANCING BEND!

THANKS Lois!!

With that said, on with a new Dancing With The Stars “watch out” and one not to be taken too seriously (let’s hope, lol). Life and Style Magazine is reporting pro dancer Cheryl Burke would like to see Khloe Kardashian dance on Dancing With The Stars. What’s more, and if she did so, she’d win. 8O

Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke had an uphill battle when she was paired with comedian DL Hughley this season, but the two-time mirror ball champion isn’t dwelling on what might have been. Instead, she’s already focused on the next season of the hit show – and which celebs she’d like to see foxtroting their way across the floor. Number one on her wish list? Khloe Kardashian.

“Khloe’s got to do it,” Cheryl says. “I think she would be amazing. I think she would actually win the whole thing. She looks great, and I think she has natural rhythm and I think she would be amazing.”

More at Life and Style Magazine. What do you think if this were to happen?

Simply put, ‘No, please NO’ for me! I could barely handle seeing her on the X Factor last season or in the audience screaming when her brother Rob danced on the show. :o

DWTS Season 16 Rumors – A Housewife and a….

…I was going to say it…okay, I’ll say it. A Dick. :-D  Andy Dick, that is. All according to Radar Online. Keep in mind that Radar Online has gotten it wrong before…but they’ve also been right. Nothing confirmed until tomorrow.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump will be competing alongside the always outrageous Andy Dick, Radar is exclusively reporting – and we can’t wait to see him bust out the Foxtrot!

Also along for the ride will be former American Idol star Kellie Pickler, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman, boxerVictor Ortiz, Baltimore Ravens’ Jacoby Jones and another comedian D.L. Hughley.

This cast is looking pretty train-wrecky and like a “Reality TV” Zone. I guess we have to hope some are wrong??

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. :-)

And the First CONFIRMED Contestant on DWTS Season 16 Is…

Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens. Just announced during a commercial break from the Oscars.

I will update here if they announce any more. :-)

EMA: Thanks to Nathan and in case you missed it, here is the promo announcing Jacoby during the Oscars. THANKS NATHAN! -Vogue

DWTS Season 16 Cast Rumors – Different Source, More Names!

Yowza, after months of silence, the leaks (real or otherwise) are coming quickly. TMZ has weighed in with Sean, Wynonna and…Kelly Pickler???

The two biggest reality shows on the planet are about to come together — TMZ has learned the identity of four of the contestants for this season of “Dancing With the Stars” … including the first ever former “American Idol” wannabe.

“DWTS” has not revealed their cast for the upcoming season yet … but sources close to the show tell TMZ that Kellie Picker – everyone’s favorite country bumpkin from season five of “Idol” — will be doing this season of “DWTS.”

In addition to Pickler, our sources say country star Wynonna Judd, “Bachelor” star Sean Lowe and 2012 Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Aly Raisman are among this year’s cast.

Kelly could be lots of fun. TMZ is betting on Aly, but from what I’ve seen on twitter, her fans don’t give her much of a chance and they’re not to happy she’s doing it.
