Dancing with the Stars Season 11 – Rumor Roundup!

Like I mentioned a few days ago, I normally put up a post of rumored celebs from previous seasons because it seems that it often takes a season or two before a rumored celebrity actually makes it on to the show. You just never know when a past rumor is going to come true. So, here are some past rumors – plausible or otherwise. :-)

Probably one of the scariest rumors ever, in my view, is LaToya Jackson. She’s still out there, and I bet she’s still an option. I think she was a lock prior to Michael’s death – I think she came right out and said that they had offered but it was too soon after Michael’s death at that point.

How about Dominique Moceanu and Vera Wang?? Any gymnastics fans have a clue? As for Vera, she was in the audience several times last season, but it’s pretty well known that she’s a friend of Evan Lysacek’s, so that could be the explanation.

Back in April, there was a rumor going around about Rachel Uchitel, but I think that ship has sailed. She was never famous (at least in a good way) and what little infamy she had is likely pretty well gone. I don’t think we have to worry about her. For that same reason, I’ve never dedicated a rumor post to Oksana Grigorieva (part of the Mel Gibson train wreck) – I just don’t think (hope?) those rumors are credible. Someone back me up here. :-)

In early May there were a few interesting ones, plausible and not, such at Tony Blair, Lee Meriwhether and Morgan Fairchild - I see the last two as plausible, but Tony Blair??? Ummm…I dunno.

A couple other ones, such as Danny Gokey and Kurt Angle, are probably still plausible even though the rumors are more than a year old.

Well, that’s as far back as I went for today. I’ll see if there’s enough info for a part 2. :-)

July 31, 2010 I Written By

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. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 10 – Rumor Roundup

….and a couple new rumors as well. The big one that I just saw today, that requires a bathtub of salt, is Jonathan Frakes from Star Trek will be on this season. This is a random twitter rumor – if it solidifies more, I’ll let you all know. :-)

Okay, that was quick – this rumor about Jonathan Frakes seems to originate from a DWTS Blog and also included Genie Francis. It’s third or fourth person so…not likely. But hey, I do well on getting the cast right because I report EVERYTHING I hear. :-)

Regular readers of this blog know we post all the gossip we hear about the new casts of DWTS each season. Every season there are people we hear solid (and not so solid) rumors about. The thing about this show is that often someone is rumored before one season yet shows up on a later season. So we thought it would be a good idea to recap rumors we heard a while ago that haven’t panned out yet. Just revisit them and see if they still seem likely. So, here we go!

Bethany Frankel - from Real Houswives. I’m thinking no right now. Never heard anything about her other than the initial interview where she said she would love to do it.

Suge Knight - still possible, IMO. Seems like something the producers would pull.

Danny Gokey – former AI contestant.  I’m thinking no, although it’s more likely this season than last since I don’t know how much post-Idol success he’s had.

Erin Andrews – ESPN Reporter and one of John’s favorites. :-) She was rumored a long time ago for 2010.  I don’t know if this one is still possible, if she is still interested in doing it.

Kurt Angle – TNA Superstar, it seemed fairly solid that Kurt was at least contacted about DWTS. What the end result of that was, who knows?

Dominique Moceanu – Olympian that was photographed with Tony Dovolani.  Simple fan photo? Or something more?

Vera Wang – the wedding dress designer rumor came from Marc Malkin from E! so I tend to give it a bit more weight than your average rumor.  I could be wrong and Marc could get his info the same place I do – Twitter. :-) That said – that rumor got kinda solid as we reported on June 17, 2009.

Lou Ferrigno – Lou was seriously blowing his own horn on this. He said he was in the running. Now, did his spilling the beans kill his chances, or did it just not work out for last season?  I believe he was also the one who got really pissed off when he wasn’t picked, so maybe that ruined his chances.

Okay, that’s all for right now!  There are a LOT more, so I”ll continue tomorrow in part II. I also have to continue my SCD versus DWTS series – I haven’t forgotten. You’ve been warned. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 9 – More Couples Gossip and Rumors

Dominique Moceanu with Tony Dovolani??
11892989

 
A picture is worth a thousand words, but I still call this rumor. It is only June, after all. This would be a new record in celeb announcements, I think.

How about designer Vera Wang?? According to my new BFF, Marc Malkin, Vera is a possibility for Season 9.

A source tells E! News that designer Vera Wang has signed on to compete for next season’s disco ball trophy…

Wang, who will be 60 by the time the next round of waltzing kicks off in the fall, rose from Vogue editor to one of the world’s most famous wedding dress designers. She not only dresses celebs on the red carpet now, but she has her own home collection, plus a lower-priced clothing collection at Kohl’s.

Again, it’s kinda early, but we’ll see. They better bring back Corky or maybe Louis, because at 60, I can’t see her with Mark or Derek – just like I couldn’t see Shawn Johnson dancing with Maks or Corky or Tony.
