Okay, it’s about that time again! Funny, I was thinking there hadn’t been enough new rumors to cover since I did Part I – and realized that I have a poor sense of what happened when. :-) There have been quite a few!!
Remember in that first post when I said how fun this was and it’s my favorite part of the season of blogging?? Well, that’s still true, and I enjoy my what seems like daily DM sessions with Vogue as we try to figure out what to post and what to ignore…but I’m ready for Monday now. :-) I’m tired of reading parts of Twitter that I normally would avoid like the plague and I’m ready to start writing fresh Cheese. :-) Only a few more days till the announcement!! Yay. NOTE: Don’t forget that I’m live blogging the announcement right here at PureDWTS. Once the announcement is made, I’m going to guess who got who (well, some of those are out in the open already :-) ) in a post that will likely be early Tuesday morning – get your guesses ready so you can add them in the comments. Wednesday morning we will post the official pairings and let the screams of “ringer” and whining and hand wringing begin!! :-) I’ll go first…This is Maks’ FOURTH either high profile or talented partner in a row!!! Heh. Just thought I would put that out there before people start bitching about Derek. :-D
On with the show…First up, those “rumors” that are pretty darn non-rumorish at this point:
Hope Solo – first it was a hint, then a tweet that sort of implied that she wasn’t, then it was a tease, and then she kinda outed herself on twitter.
David Arquette – seen at dance studio with Kym Johnson.
For New Rumors that Seem Solid:
Ryan O’Neal – this one comes from ET, which makes it somewhat credible.
Kim Richards – I only believe this one because it just came out yesterday and it sounds like Celebuzz spotted her at a dance studio. We’ll see. :-)
Those Rumors that I Just Don’t Believe, for a Variety of Reasons:
Jenna Jameson – she’s a former porn star!! But she was following some pros…
Elisabetta Canalis – this came from E! News, who claim “many sources” are telling them Elizabetta is signing on. But this would be a new level of “WHO?” for most people, I think.
In the category of “Do DJs in Small Markets have any cred??”:
Erica Durance - think this one might be serious wishful thinking. It came from a comment on a USA Today article referencing what he heard a DJ say. Convoluted enough for ya?? :-) Her people have since said it’s false.
Henry Winkler – two different DJs tweeted about this one today and I don’t know what to make of it. Hmmm…
Which rumors do I think might be true?? Well, besides Hope and David, I think the following are pretty solid:
Chaz Bono (TMZ just claimed he’s in for sure. We said this days ago, hello?)
I have other thoughts, but these are all I’m willing to share right now. :-)
