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. :-)

Peta Murgatroyd And Maks Chmerkovksiy Returning To Dancing With The Stars Season 24

Peta Murgatroyd and Maks Chmerkovksiy were on Good Morning America today. They had a special announcement for Dancing With The Stars Season 24. Guess what? They are both coming back as Pros. Let us know what you think in comments. So exciting. Thanks to @Idolxfactor for the heads up and help today. Video coming up.

Keep scrolling below for updates….

ETA: Be sure to see US Magazine. Peta talks of returning to Dancing With The Stars. You can also see her and Maks on the cover.

Murgatroyd’s motivation is two-fold. “I want to get my body back,” admits the 5-foot-7 pro. “And I want to defend my title. I won two seasons ago and never got to come back.” (Chmerkovskiy welcomes the challenge, telling Us, “I just want to support her and at the same time, maybe have some healthy competition in the family.”)

And though dancing, running and weight training have helped Murgatroyd shed most of her baby weight (“I think I’m kind of halfway there,” she says), one thing does make her nervous about slipping back into her old skimpy costumes. “I’m not looking forward to having huge boobs on the show,” admits the breastfeeding star. “I’ve never had massive knockers before and I don’t really know how we’ll tie them down! I actually contacted the costume designer and said, ‘We need to have a meeting about this!’”

For more on her and Chmerkovskiy’s return to the ballroom — and how they’re handling life as new parents — pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands now!

New Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay To Dance On Dancing With The Stars Season 24 Or Another Season?

I never know what to think of the Dancing With The Stars rumors from Hollywood Life. This time, the inconsistent (in other words, take this with a grain of salt) online tabloid is reporting Rachel Lindsay (the new bachelorette) is going to dance on Dancing With The Stars at some point. Let us know what you think if true and don’t forget to head to the link to read the full rumor.

We’re going to be seeing a lot of gorgeous Rachel Lindsay in the coming months. In addition to her search for a husband as the next Bachelorette, the 31-year-old will also be on the hunt for a Mirrorball trophy! The Dallas attorney is going to be following in the footsteps of many other Bachelor and Bachelorette stars by competing on an upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars. “Within the next two seasons of DWTS, producers with the show and ABC are trying to lock down what season she will do. They want to take advantage of all the positive press they expect from it all, but are just weighing the pros and cons of doing it early or not,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

Hugh Grant Thinks Dancing With The Stars Is “Superb”, But, Probably Wouldn’t Dance

In an older interview Hugh Grant said he’d love to do Dancing With The Stars as he thinks the show is “superb”, but, he probably wouldn’t. Instead he’d like to dance in an up coming movie “Wall On Drugs”. Could he change his mind? I doubt it, but, it’s fun to think about getting a big name like this.

Carrie Ann Inaba Interviewed On The New Season Of DWTS, Her Engagement To Robb Derringer, And More

AOL interviewed Carrie Ann Inaba about Dancing With The Stars and the new season approaching. She’d like to see Bruno Mars dance. She also talks of some behind the scenes secrets…

The “Dancing with the Stars” premiere date was just announced, so I have to ask, who’s the No. 1 star you’d love to see compete?

Oh, the No. 1 star I’d like to have? You know, I would love to have Bruno Mars. He’s just such a fantastic performer, full of life, and he’s from Hawaii — and there’s just such a cool vibe about him. I don’t know if we could ever get him, but I think he would be so much to fun to have on the show.

He would be good, don’t you think?

Yeah, he’s an amazing dancer! He, and I also think, Ne-Yo …

Ne-Yo’s great. We’ve had Ne-Yo perform on the show a couple times, he’s been wonderful. He’s such a nice guy. And we always get Pitbull, and he comes up and gets judges — he’s always such a joy, as well.

So fun! Do you have any behind-the-scenes secret to share? The show’s been on for so long, longtime viewers probably feel like they know everything about it — but is there anything you feel even the biggest fans don’t know?

I feel like maybe even the biggest fans don’t know that the judges are kept completely separate from the dancers. People always ask me, “what are the secrets?” and I don’t really have any, because the judges’ trailers are on the opposite side of the CBS lot. We’re on the opposite side, and we’re not allowed into the studio … ever. You know how we do the judges’ pick and we go in and choreograph? That’s the only time we’re ever allowed in the studio before the show starts.

Yeah, so people think we know all the secrets, but we know nothing! We’re totally separated. It’s hysterical. I guess we have Standards of Practices, so we have to.

Lots more at AOL including talk on her new partnership with P.F. Chang’s Home Menu and her engagement and wedding to actor Robb Derringer. Note how Carrie Ann will help co-host Live With Kelly next week. We’ll be sure to post anything she says on Dancing With The Stars.

Army Staff Sgt. Jose Medina Mentions Dancing With The Stars On Sunday Fox And Friends

Did you happen to see this beautiful inaugural dance in honor of the Military Service? Well, this morning on Sunday Fox And Friends, Army Staff Sgt. Jose Medina (who danced with First Lady Melania Trump) said he’s hoping this was his Dancing With The Stars debut. He was just joking, but, I got the impression he’d love to dance on the show and I love the thought of it. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Catherine Cartmell (who danced with our new President) would be a good one too. What do you think?

Dancing With The Stars Co-Executive Producer Deena Katz Teases On New Cast For Season 24

Kristyn Burtt of Dance Network spoke to Dancing With The Stars co-executive producer Deena Katz on the Women’s March In LA scheduled for Saturday. She also asked her on the new season of Dancing With The Stars. Note how Deena is hoping to ask Jane Fonda to dance and some other celebs. Let’s wish Deena luck as she puts the new cast together….

With Season 24 just around the corner and about half of the show already cast for the spring, Katz promised she would be wearing her casting hat on Saturday.

“I have my casting hat on 24 hours a day. This show is like my baby. I was the first person in America hired and there is not a day that goes by that I’m not working on it and searching people out,” she says. “So trust me, I might be asking Jane Fonda that day.”

So be on the lookout on social media for those big stars who emerge from the Women’s March LA.

“I would bet someone who is there ends up dancing on this next season,” Katz teases. “I don’t know who, but I’ll look at the list and see what happens.”

More at Dance Network. Thanks Kristyn!
