Pure DWTS – What You Missed During the Winter Break!

I know that lots of people disconnect from DWTS between seasons, but we here are PureDWTS don’t stop writing stuff. We’re weird that way. :-)  So, I thought I would create a post summarizing some of the interesting things that were posted and talked about while you might have been away. :-)

Shortly after the season ended, the rumors started up…and I wasn’t the only one commenting on the messed up mess that was Season 15. And it WAS Jordyn Wieber that wanted to dance with Val…

After Buzz after the Finale

Vogue asked everyone for their wishlist for Season 16 – and at least one person got their wish. :-) Read more..

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. :-)

Is UFC Champ Tito Ortiz Up For DWTS Season 16??

If you don’t know, Tito Ortiz is a UFC champ who recently retired. Tito talks at length about bullying and fighting against it – fantastic cause. At the end of the discussion, of COURSE Access Hollywood has to ask him if he would consider doing DWTS. It’s SO random, that I have to wonder if they were prompted to ask. Anyway, at first he’s like “oh, I took a little interest in it” but as he goes on it sounds like he’d like to show Chuck Liddell how it’s done and he said he always told his fans that if he did it would be after he retired…and he’s now retired. So…who knows? We’ve had more than one celebrity respond to a random question like this in a somewhat vague manner who then ended up being on the show that season.

What do you think?? And do you think that this is just a coincidence?? :-D  Derek is the only reason I know who Tito is, him being a massive UFC fan and all.

Daniella Monet Campaigns for a Spot on Dancing with the Stars Season 16

Girlfriend, chill out. You’re very pretty, but like I said in a previous post – campaigning never works.  Ever. If you get on the show, you will be the first. :-)

No, I haven’t gone crazy. CraziER. :-) Daniella is goading her fans into spamming @DancingABC about putting her on the show.  It’s  a bit out of hand. First, Just Jared Jr. reported that she wanted to do the show:

Daniella Monet is gunning for a spot on the new season of Dancing With The Stars — and JJJ would love to see her on it!

The 23-year-old actress tweeted a couple weeks ago, “Competing on @dancingabc would be a dream come true. I have 0 professional experience, but I’d give it everything!!”

Now, she of Nickelodeon fame, is trying to get her own personal DWTS hashtag trending on twitter. Lawd, it’s hard to find real rumors in between all the campaigns that have sprung up in the last week. :-)

“@: If it was up to you, which actresses would you cast for season 16 of #DWTS?” <---- tweet them #DaniellaMonetOnDWTS :)
