Season 13 Rumors! Camp Rock 2 Matthew “Mdot” Finley To Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

“Camp Rock 2″ actor Matthew “Mdot” Finley has recently been released from the hosptal after a motorcycle crash in May. But, this isn’t going to stop Matthew from getting back in shape and working to recover. He’s determined to “get back on the dancefloor” which includes “a possible stint on Dancing With The Stars” writes PVMTV. More in a take below. The link describes Matthew’s accident in a little more more detail. Thanks to @DWTSgossip at twitter for this news.

Finley’s manager, Eric Ortner, said Wednesday the singer-actor was released Tuesday from UCLA Medical Center after undergoing several surgeries for injuries he received when he lost control of his motorcycle in the Santa Monica Mountains and plummeted off a cliff.

Ortner said that Finley suffered multiple injuries to his face, head and legs but is “determined to get back on the dance floor,” including a possible stint on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

Finley played rival Luke Williams in the Disney Channel sequel starring the Jonas Brothers.

So, what do you think if this rumor pans out to be true? Who do you see Matthew partnered with?

I can see him with Chelsea….they have the same tender smile. If true, this would fit the demographics of the last several seasons of producers picking a “Disney” star.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.

Mark Ballas Endorses Same Sex Couple Dancing On Dancing With The Stars (TAKE POLL)

Mark Ballas tells Rob Shuter of Pop Eater that even though there are some disadvantages, he’s fine if he were to get partnered with a male partner on Dancing With The Stars. Rob mentions the possibility of Ricky Martin dancing with him which Mark is open too. Mark also mentions another dream partner >>> PIPPA MIDDLETON!! Now, that would be a cool person to get on the show as well. More below and at the link.

“We have eight male professional dancers and one is gay,” Mark tells me. “I never dealt with the stigma, I was at a performing arts school, so it wasn’t an issue. I always thought if I were ever confronted about it, I’d just say, “Well, while you’re on the football field with a bunch of dudes, I’ll be dancing with a bunch of girls.”

Mark says straight men that are reluctant or just generally scoff at the idea of dancing should break out of their comfort zone.

“It doesn’t make sense that men wouldn’t want to dance,” he says. “How can you not want to dance with your girl? How can you not want to do that?”

Mark tells me that his first choice of celebrity dance partner next season would be Royal sister, Pippa Middleton, but would be totally fine with the idea of being the first American cast member to dance with a same sex partner.

“I would be totally cool with it,” Mark tells me. “There are other competitions where they have same sex couples. I’d support it. There is a slight inherent disadvantage. Two girls and two men just can’t move like a man and a woman. But you can try.”

So what about if he was partnered with Ricky Martin next season, “I’d be down!” says Mark.

So, what do you think? I’d love to see Ricky Martin dance on the show too…even if it’s with a male partner. This article makes me wonder if the show isn’t seriously considering the idea of a same sex couple dancing for next Season? If so, would you be game? Vote in our new Poll below if interested.

DWTS 13 Cast Rumors – Has Dancing With The Stars Called Shaquille O’Neal To Dance?

Shaquille O’Neal is hanging up his basketball shoes and retiring. But, could Shaq be contemplating buying some dancing shoes in their place? He’s always been a natural born entertainer with several movies and TV series appearances under his belt. TV Guide lists Shaq on their Dancing With The Stars Wish List. They are calling him “Twinkletoes” (LOL!!!). Also, check out this take from My Plain View which says (or more like assumes?) the show has called him.

Shaq said he’s going to go away for a bit to heal his Achilles’ tendon (I am amazed no one has made a Hercules comparison yet), but hopefully he’ll return to us on TV. I would love to see him as an analyst à la Barkley, but I might actually watch him on a reality show even though I despise them. You know “Dancing With the Stars” has already made a call, but I’m not sure who he would dance with. Those girls are literally two feet shorter than him. I’d still watch, though. Every week. I might even vote.

Thanks to @DWTSGossip at twitter, this link shows Shaq dancing and the title of the video makes one go “hmmmm”.

Ok, I’m game if true, are you? But, who do you see this super tall guy partnered with? I would say Kim or Anna?

Heidi’s Note: I call this one wishful thinking on TV Guide’s part more than rumor. If he really has an Achilles issue, he would be INSANE to do DWTS this upcoming season. I had an achilles issue that took more than a year to heal. Couldn’t do my three mile walks, let alone dance.
