DWTS Season 13 Rumor and Innuendo (aka Part IV of Things that Make You Go Hmmm…)

The titles just keep getting longer and longer. :-)

I wasn’t going to post this one, because I didn’t think DWTS would actually have a porn star on the show. Actually…I still don’t. :-) But Jeniffer, one of our regular readers, found this on Twitter yesterday and posted a link in the comments here: Read more..

DWTS 13 Cast Rumors – Twitter Coincidences!! (Or Not)

Ok, so I was digging around a little tonight (yes, I have Dancing With The Stars on the brain! lol :) ) and noticed Chaz Bono has recently added Karina Smirnoff & Mark Ballas to his “followers” at twitter. I also noticed he never replied back to Lisa Stanley of K-Earth radio when she said, “YAY! Can’t wait to c u on DWTS.” Wouldn’t he correct it or deny it if it weren’t true (like he has on a recent wedding rumor to his girlfriend)?

Chaz has also recently added Kirstie Alley and Mackenzie Phillips (sister to Chynna Phillips, another rumored celebrity to dance as well this season) to his twitter followers.

So, could this all mean something or not….or is it just coincidental and Chaz just likes Dancing With The Stars and the celebrites and dancers above?

Note: Karina is not following Chaz….yet. Neither is Mark!!

Here is a twitter screen shot from Heidi: Read more..

DWTS Season 13 – Pro Watch!!

ETA: Updates are in red.

Note: John taught us a new trick – we can now “stickie” a post to the top of the page and add new posts below it. Which is what I’m going to do with this post, so don’t miss anything down below. :-)  ETA: You can tell a stickied post by the lovely blue color. :-)

Okay, so the pros supposedly find out if they are competing on Monday, but in seasons past they actually start getting confirmed this weekend.  If you believe @DWTSGossip on Twitter, 8 have been confirmed and 4 are waiting to find out. She also says there will be three “new faces” on the dance floor with partners. Which means only ONE of the currently unconfirmed pros will be getting a partner, according to what she wrote about it. I’m still wondering if it just means 3 new Troupe members, but she implies three new faces competing with celebs (which means they don’t necessarily have to be Troupe, since those aren’t technically “new”). Wow. I just made my own brain ache. I hope you all followed that. :-)

I’ve noted all those called “confirmed” by @DWTSGossip, below. All that said, a word of caution: I do think that @DWTSGossip has a source that is reliable. I say that’s likely because I’ve had them before and @DWTSGossip has been on target in the past. HOWEVER, as with anything you read on the net, it is not “for sure” until it comes from the Pros themselves, Tom Bergeron or DWTS producers via GMA. We’ve seen a previously reliable source (TMZ) go down in flames this season and they were right the last two seasons.  Just be cautious before you start throwing parties…or go into mourning. :-)  I think she’s (?) probably right…but that’s what I said about TMZ as well. ;-)  ETA: Please note that nothing is certain until we hear it from the Pros or the show. Don’t yell at me if something turns out to be incorrect. ;-) Read more..

Snooki Wants More Money To Do Dancing With The Stars?

Ok, so this girl is seriously getting on my every nerve!!! One minute Snooki is doing the show and the next she or someone in her camp are saying she’s not dancing. Now, Hollywood Life is reporting that Snooki is holding out for more MONEY!!! Come on! If true, why should Dancing With The Stars pay her more money? She should be lucky she’s getting any money at all or the “attention”.

If this rumor comes true, this will be like “Bristol Palin” all over again for me. I will still watch the show. I love it and one person will never chase me off. But, come on!!

This is a NIGHTMARE! *CRIES* 8O

Thanks for letting me rant! lol Here is more from Hollywood Life;

“They are still trying to make the deal with Snooki,” our source dishes. “She was verbally in, but has yet to sign anything. She has been very concerned with the schedule and what she will be paid.”

With the season 13 premiere of DWTS just around the corner on Sept. 19, ABC is in a rush to finalize the cast as soon as possible. After all, they have to start rehearsing, plus, the cast is being announced Aug. 29 during the Bachelor Pad.

Adds our insider, “The producers are confident that she will still join the show, but if she continues to hold out, they have people that will fill her spot. They always overcast the show.”

DWTS Season 13 Cast Rumors – Chaz Bono again??

Thanks to PureDWTS reader Maddy for this new tweet she saw. I’m not sure what to make of it right now? Could it indeed be Chaz Bono is going to dance this Season like we questioned a couple of weeks ago? Note: Lisa Stanley is an entertainment Reporter for a morning show on K-Earth 101 Radio.


@ @ YAY! Can’t wait to c u on DWTS :)

Is Model Elisabetta Canalis Signed To Dance On Dancing With The Stars 13??

E Online is reporting that former girlfriend of Geroge Clooney and model, Elisabetta Canalis, has been signed to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Here is a take of what they are reporting….

According to sources, George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis has signed on to the upcoming 13th season of Dancing With the Stars. ABC does not comment on casting rumors, and the new cast will be announced during Bachelor Pad on Aug. 29. However, insiders tell us the Italian model will be on board.

Elisabetta would be following in the footsteps of Clooney’s rumored new girlfriend, Stacy Keibler, who starred in the second season of DWTS. Canalis also would be pulling a Melissa Rycroft, bouncing back from a very public split by shaking her groove thing.

She’d be perfect! I hope this rumor is true. I can see her dancing with Tony or Dmitry….maybe even Derek? What do you think?

DWTS 13 Casting Rumors That Are Most Likely Not True And Not True For Sure

Heidi’s in a big meeting today and wanted me to gather up some rumors that got shot down yesterday that she saw. I found some too. Unless something changes, you can most likely strike these celebrities off the casting rumors list for Dancing With The Stars 13.

First off, a twitter representing Erica Durance reported that the rumors for her to dance were false. Sorry to our male readers!! I know you will be bummed out. Apparently, Erica is in Miami currently filming a guest spot for the new “Charlie’s Angels” series and her schedule is full.


A rumor has recently emerged naming Erica Durance as a possible contender for a ‘Dancing With The Stars’ spot. This rumor is FALSE.

Erica Durance TV

As you might have read, Snooki finally spoke out and said she won’t be dancing on Dancing With The Stars this season. Many of us our taking huge sigh of relief on this …AGAIN! 8O


I love watching Dancing with the Stars but I am not apart of the cast ! Sorry Tweedos
@Sn00ki
Nicole Polizzi

One of our new rumors “making us go hmmmm” was Hope Solo yesterday when she tweeted about “facing her fears” and was thinking about doing something she “was really bad at”. Right afterwards, many twitter followers asked her if it was Dancing With The Stars she was considering and encouraged her to do it. Then last night, she tweeted this post making us wonder if it was something else she was considering and not Dancing With The Stars?


Thx for all the advice! (Although ur assumed topic might be a little off) but, that’s right I’m a NIKE athlete!Let’s JUST DO IT already! #fb
@hopesolo
Hope Solo

For those hoping Evelyn Lozada is going to dance this season, so far, the show hasn’t asked and “she wasn’t picked” even though it was true they have been considering her. You can watch and listen to a video at Hollywood Life of her being interviewed. Below is a quote from the audio….

“I would love to do Dancing with the Stars,” Evelyn gushes. “There was that whole rumor that they were thinking about having me on and I wouldn’t be opposed.”

Evelyn is one of the possible members being considered though. “The rumor is true,” she admits. “I haven’t been picked, but the rumor was true. There was a story. They were talking about potential contestants and I was one of them.”

Lastly, were the producers of Dancing With The Stars considering Perez Hilton for the show? If so, they’ve given Perez a “NO” according to this new audio and he’s “boo hooing”! Too bad. Perez might have been really entertaining…at the same time, he might have been annoying too. lol.

This has been Heidi and Vogue over and out! ;)

DWTS Season 13 Rumors – Part III of Things That Make You Go Hmmmm….

More DWTS13 Rumors Erica Durance to Dance On Dancing With The Stars?

Thanks to John for having such a watchful eye. Today in the comments section at a USA Today link talking about Dancing With The Stars, he read that a radio DJ had said Erica Durance might be a possible contender to dance. Below are the exact words from the commenter….

A DJ on a local radio station mentioned hearing that Erica Durance who played Lois Lane on Smallville was a possibility.

As the commenter said, Erica plays “Lois Lane” in the Superman inspired TV series Smallville. Wow, now wouldn’t this be a good one if it comes true?

DWTS Season 13 – Rumor Roundup Part 1!!

Okay, as I joked the other day, the tabloid wars are getting out of hand, with one outlet with a great track record (TMZ) is setting up rumors while other outlets, some reputable and some with no track record on DWTS rumors, shooting them down.  It’s crazy, it’s wild….it’s a helluva lot of fun. :-) But…it’s hard to keep track of also! Who was rumored, who was shot down, who out and out denied they were doing the show?? Well, that’s why I’m writing this post – to try and make sense of it all and make a list of where we stand now. I don’t know about most of our readers, but this is actually one of my favorite parts of DWTS – trying to figure out who’s going to do the show before…they actually do the show. :-)

My guess is that Chynna, Christina, Rob and Kristin…and maybe Jenni…will turn out to be true. We’ll see!!

Note: Vogue is reading this before it’s posted…but that doesn’t mean it will be perfect. If we left someone off – please tell us and we’ll update accordingly. DO NOT tell me about people who are campaigning or who want to be on the show – this is for actual rumors. I’m putting a list of wannabes at the bottom – but they are not the same as “rumored to be in talks” or “rumored to be doing the show.”

Chynna PhillipsPerez Hilton reported this yesterday, but it was originally mentioned that she was in talks quite some time ago by us, via The Insider.

Christina Milian – First reported by US Weekly back in July, along with Rob Kardashian, Christina seems fairly solid. Only because Hollywood life (and as recently as August 12)and others are saying she’s in, and no one’s managed to shoot them down yet.  She also had an interesting reaction to a question about DWTS, as we mentioned earlier.

Rob Kardashian – Another potential dancer who is being mentioned by many of the outlets and hasn’t been shot down yet. Along with Christina, he was originally mentioned by US Weekly in July. He addressed the rumors in an interesting non-denial similar to that of Kate Gosselin.

Kristin CavallariAccess Hollywood reported this one and no one has shot it down yet, to the best of my knowledge.

Ron Artest – Originally said to be in talks by TMZ, Ron has since said he will not be on this season.

Snooki – First she was, then she wasn’t, then she was open to it…who the hell knows?

Leila Arcieri - gave a rather vague answer when asked about DWTS.

Queen Latifa – Originally rumored by TMZ, this one was shot down by her reps.

Tommy Lee - was apparently asked and apparently said “hell no“.

Rosanne Barr - was apparently asked and would like to, but she needs body parts replace first. :-)

Tiffany Thiessen – First, she said no, but then other outlets, such as TMZ and Hollywood Life as of August 12, are still claiming she is dancing, even though Tiffany herself shot down the original rumors. As recently as yesterday, Perez claims she’s dancing.

Jenni Rivera – This rumor is purely twitter driven…but not impossible. :-)

Matthew Finley – first reported back in June, we haven’t heard his name mentioned very much lately.

Ashley HebertHollywood Life reported that Ashley was “in negotiations” with DWTS back in June while the Bachelorette was still airing, but we haven’t heard much on that lately. The silence is rather deafening. DWTS has a bit of a track record with that franchise, as you may recall. I would not be surprised if they keep the incestuous relationship going.

Evelyn Lozada – Chad Ochocinco claimed to TMZ that Evelyn was “in talks” to do the show.  Then, we reported on a Tweet from Evelyn that sort of implied she was doing the show.

Chaz Bono – I kinda doubt this one, mainly because Extra had a story on it and then pulled it, as we reported a while back.

Bobby Flay – This is another rumor that’s only been mentioned once.  This is one busy guy, so…

Kelly Preston – I never put much stock in this one, but you never know!! Showbiz Spy claimed back in April that she had “auditioned” for the show – which is the first clue they don’t know what they’re talking about. I’ve never heard of anyone having to audition before. In any case, it’s not impossible, as Kelly isn’t that far removed from a Kirstie Alley or Jennifer Grey.

Melissa Gilbert – Melissa’s name has been on many a fan wishlist, but no real rumors until this past May when The National Enquirer brought it up and we repeated it. :-) And, interestingly, Melissa tweeted a link to our post! That was nice.  She said no in a weird kinda way as well, which makes me inclined to leave her on the “possible” list.

Sherri Shephard – This lady has wanted to do the show for a long time and appears to have a crush on Maks, but something (or someone) seems to be preventing her from doing the show. Back in June, she was tweeting about the show, and she’s talked about it alot on the View. Wendy Williams claimed she was in talks to do the show in July.   I wonder if their producers won’t let her out to do DWTS.  Seems like we’ve talked about her a lot here. Last word was on August 1, where she supposedly turned an offer down.

Davy Jones - Davy was supposedly asked and “supposedly” turned the offer down. His “no” was rather confusing. :-)

Hulk HoganHollywood Life takes him out of the running before he was even IN the running.

Candice Cameron Bure – There’s something funny going on here. :-) Waaay back in February, we reported that the New York Post was saying Candice was rumored to be participating. She subsequently shot that rumor down via Twitter on February 16, saying she hadn’t been asked. However, since then her name has come up again because of an interesting tweet (again).  She was tweeting Erin Andrews and had asked about Evan Lysacek.  Again, she KIND OF denied it, but in a very strange way. In a way that makes some of us (Evaine, me, Vogue) think perhaps there is more to the story. Evaine is hoping this is about Candice’s husband Valeri Bure, retired hockey player. I guess we’ll see. :-)

Shawn Marion – He’s afraid that there won’t be an NBA lock out and DWTS would interfere with his season, per a couple previous stories we posted about him.

Bridgit Mendler – a fan site claimed they had been told she was doing the show, but her rep has since denied it.

Alex Morgan – A member of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team, Alex mentioned in an interview that she had a show she would be working on for a couple months that she couldn’t talk about. We thought maybe it was DWTS, but twitter chatter says she said it was a cameo. Well, Cameo roles don’t take “a couple months” as far as I know. :-)

Dina Lohan - I dunno if this is a rumor or more like a wannabe on steroids.  In any case we haven’t heard much about her lately.

The WANNABE Dancers - I could not possibly do a complete list of wannabes, but here are a few who’ve really made it known

Hope Solo - this is more like MAKS wannabe dancer and wishful thinking. But hey, something got him to change his mind, maybe it was Hope?

Theresa Guidice – She’s been trying very hard to get on the show, but they apparently said “NO“. :-)

Shaquille O’Neal – Pretty sure this one was an assumption by the original source and not a real rumor.

Regis Philbin – remember, Regis said he’d been asked to do the show, but only if he could dance with Derek. :-)

Jodie Sweetin – we mentioned her way back in Februrary because she had mentioned wanting to do the show. Plus, she likes Derek but started following Maks, so we thought maybe she knew something. Well, she didn’t dance on Season 12 (neither did Derek) so I thought I would include her here. Old rumors often come back to life around here, you know. :-)  Of course, this is more campaign than rumor, but there you go.

Lee Merriwhether, Mackenzie Westmore, Maci Bookout and Dee Wallace

Ellen K – Ryan Seacrest’s pal, and she certainly has more of an “in” with the show than others, but still this one is wishful thinking. We think. :-)

Sig Hansen - this guy has been rumored for, like, 2 years now so I’ve downgraded him to a wishful thinker. :-)

Randy Jones, Michael E. Knight, Jason Alexander and Colleen Zenk
