New (to me) Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Rumors

Okay, I thought I had been keeping a pretty close eye on things in the way of rumors for Season 9. Up to today, I hadn’t seen anything that I hadn’t already covered (that I considered remotely plausible :-) ). But today, the Louisville Examiner posted a list of recurring names with some additional peeps – some which will NEVER happen and I feel comfortable saying that. I mean, Adam Lambert? No freakin’ way. You heard it here first. :-) I would LOVE it, but the guy is HUGE right now and just off American Idol (ahem – a FOX show with a sister called So You Think You Can Dance which will be airing their performance show on the same night as DWTS result show). Not happening.  Anyway,  here is there list:

Kurt Angle
Lou Ferrigno

Sherri Shepherd, a co-host on ABC’s ‘The View’, mentioned on the show a few weeks ago, that she had been approached by Dancing With the Stars. Sherri said that she was thrilled and definitely considering accepting ABC’s offer…and she has lost a LOT of weight.

* Ashley Hamilton – TV Guide

* Erin Andrews – Reality TV Magazine

Also rumored to be cast on season 9 of Dancing With the Stars.

* Andrew Firestone

* Adam Lambert

* Alicia Sacramone

* Katie Holmes

* Leslie Jordan

* Aubrey O’Day

The Shari Sheppard thing is weird, because I know she’s a huge fan, and I know she would love to do the show – but this is the first I’ve seen her name on the net as a possibility. Now, granted, I have a full time (aka real) job so there are things I’ve missed, but I would think there would be more talk about her. This one I think is pretty plausible in any case.

Katie Holmes? No way. And if she is on the show, I’ll feel sorry for her. She was pretty badly savaged after her appearance on SYTYCD (sorry – rightly so, IMO); between that and her marriage to Tom Cruise, she might regret her decision.

Alicia Sacramone? Sure, it’s possible. Mainly because I have no clue who she is. :-) But I’m surprised that Dominque Moceanu isn’t on this list – she had her pic taken with Tony and was pretty blunt about wanting to be on the show.

Andrew Firestone? Sure, why not. He’s cute, he’s a former bachelor and I think he makes wine. That gets him a vote in my book. :-)

Tommie used a great pic of Maks and Karina (I’ve never seen her look so BUFF), so I had to include it here:

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. :-)

Wild Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Cast Rumor/Speculation – Kelly Osborne?

Kelly Osborne? I find the idea very interesting. Lil’ Kim-interesting.  This is completely twitter related, and as such I could be WAY off base, but Kelly says she has been offered a TV show she never thought she would do:

Several people have asked if she’s talking about DWTS. What do you all think? And would she get Mark or Derek? She’s Mark-short, isn’t she? Remember – this is the speculation game. I’m finding little bits of info and putting it out there on the off chance it’s true.

DWTS Season 9 Cast – Rumor and Innuendo

Well, you know, I called this one a few weeks ago!!  Lou Ferrigno on DWTS – I mentioned it on June 30th.  Yeah, until it comes out of Tom B’s mouth on August 17th, several grains of salt are being consumed.  :-)

 Also, going way out on a limb, I’m going to predict Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block. Why? Just random tweets, including those from Jordan himself. I could be way off base. We’ll see.

I’ve also seen twitter campaigns for Dean McDermott (aka Mr. Tori Spelling) taking shape.  What the campaigners don’t realize is that it isn’t up to Dean, it’s up to the producers.  But hey, I want David Duchovny or Adrian Grenier on DWTS, so I can’t pick on them.  :-)

As David points out in the comments, there is also a growing campaign for Beth Horn (aka Venom) from American Gladiators to be on the show.  I really don’t know that these campaigns actually work. Does Beth Horn WANT to be on DWTS? Does Dean McDermott? That, and getting the producers to buy it, are two big things standing in the way. But, good luck and happy campaigning. :-)

Cast of Dancing with the Stars 9 – More on Kurt Angle

Whether this is NEW information, or just recycled rumors being dressed up to look new is hard to say – this IS the internet, after all.  That qualifier firmly in place, this article in Xtreme Wrestling Scoops came to my attention – it appears new, but you be the judge.

Kurt Angle’s agent Dave Hawk recently spoke to The Sun in the UK about Kurt being shortlisted for the new season of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

… I was really surprised as Kurt can really move. I believe with his athletic ability and charisma, he will be a very strong contender on this program.”

Of course, Pure DWTS wrote about Kurt on DWTS on July 27 AND May 30.  Maybe we’ll see him…and maybe we won’t. But we are getting into August, when DWTS rumors suddenly become more plausible. :-)

Who wants to bet he gets Edyta?? Kym may be too tall. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Cast Rumor – Ashley Hamilton

This one is stated by TVFanatic.com as FACT – but I’ll believe it when I hear it from Tom Bergeron. We’ve been through this game before, haven’t we??  :-)

Ashley Hamilton is the first celebrity to be named as a competitor on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.

The 34-year old’s father, actor George Hamilton, actually appeared on the competition in 2006.

He’s oddly cute, in a nerdy way. I could watch him dance. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 9 Cast Rumor – Greg Louganis

This rumor is, so far, only Twitter-based. I got nothing else on it – yet. :-)

Tweet Greg Louganis 

Very interesting, IMO. I think I would be all for this one. Give him to Karina, I think.
