This post is a Heidi/Courtney/Vogue collaboration…
As many of you have noticed – the DWTS rumor mill is pretty darn slow these days. No big media outlets reporting legit casting rumors, no glaring Twitter slip-ups by potential candidates, just…vagueness & silence. Which of course makes our job here at PureDWTS a bit harder 🙂 However, we do keep a pretty vigilant eye on what’s happening on Twitter, and there have been a handful of tweets that have caught our eye as possibly being something legit (and some that are obviously joking, but funny enough to mention ;-)), so we thought we’d go ahead and share – but take these with a BIIIIIG grain of salt, kids. We’re reaching here 🙂
Heidi: First up, we have yet another NFL player that someone is claiming to be on DWTS this season – Jeremiah “The Axe Man” Trotter. I found this in my random perusal of various twitter searches. I have no idea if the person claiming he heard Jeremiah is even remotely serious or remotely connected – but Jeremiah’s non-denial is interesting, plus I remember how I didn’t blog about knowing that a Steeler was going to dance. A month before the announcement. 🙂 ETA: The tweet I posted a bit ago about Vince Young, also from the Eagles, makes this one seem like the person with the info got the wrong player. Hard to say.
Next up, an tweet from Kirstie Alley to Lisa Marie yesterday that got some eyebrows raising:
Courtney: Admittedly, this is EXTRAORDINARILY vague. Kirstie could just be trying to coax Lisa Marie into participating in her “100 Days of Dance” event, or she could be just using it in the figurative sense, as in “Yay! You’re another year older! Do some sort of celebratory dance!!!” However, some interpreted it as “Get ready to hoof it on DWTS soon!” Could Lisa Marie be signed up for season 14? Who knows…but her mom did the show in season 6, and doing the show might help Lisa Marie spread the word about several charities she’s involved with. However, according to Wikipedia, she currently lives in London – so who knows. Food for thought. 🙂 I think she’d be a great addition to the show – she seems to shun the spotlight, but she looks FANTASTIC for her age and seems to be in good shape.
Vogue: Here’s Lisa Marie in her “Idiot” video “shaking it”. What do you think? Would she be able to dance? Hmmm…she definitely has the beats down like her Dad though nothing “Hound Dog” unique, but, would she be able to memorize elaborate dance numbers? She may have trouble like her Mom, but, I can see her paired with Maks! 🙂
Courtney: Now we move onto actress Wendy Robinson, who tweets some things that could be exciting out-of-context…
But upon further examination, it’s obviously just wishful thinking:
But I must say – Wendy does look quite fetching in green fringe!
Courtney: On the campaign front, it looks like the latest celeb to have fans gunning for them to do the show is actress Jackée Harry:
If memory serves, I think Jackée has been a rumor before…or maybe a campaign. IDK. Too much going on in my head 🙂 Either way, she’s funny…I think she’d be kinda like Niecy. In fact, I think she’s actually friends with Niecy.
And in the category of “purely joking”, we have Darrell Sheets from the A&E series Storage Wars no doubt giving a costar a hard time:
Courtney: For those of you unfamiliar with the show, Storage Wars is a reality show where they take self-storage units that are delinquent on their rent and auction off the contents to the highest bidder as a single lot. Sometimes you get valuable antiques and priceless artifacts; sometimes you get junk. Darrell & Barry (Weiss) are two of the people who bid on these units – and the reason I find this tweet so funny is that this is Barry:
Vogue: I can’t see it. I just can’t.
Courtney: If Reuben from Ocean’s Eleven had a drunken love child with Charlie Sheen’s character from Two & A Half Men, it would be Barry Weiss (whose name makes me want a beer).
And just breaking, we have this gem from Taylor Armstrong of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills:
Courtney: Can we say “desperate for attention”? Sorry, but Taylor’s totally fishing here – she’s name-dropping a pro (a pro that’s too short for her, no less), acting like they’re bff (ok…I must’ve missed something…I didn’t think she & LVA even ran in the same circles), and doing it less than a month before the cast announcement when she’s already been rumored as a contestant. Whether or not she’s actually been asked remains to be seen, but judging from the constant reports I’ve been hearing that she’s flat broke and terrified that she’s not going to be asked back for season 3 of RHOBH (a legit concern, as I hear they’re already looking for some new housewives), the woman sounds desperate with a captial D – so you best believe that if she gets asked, she’s doing it. I hope Tony’s got a therapist on standby…
Vogue: Then there is Sam Champion…yes, Sam strikes again! Check out this little ‘retweet’ Sam made this morning. Why would he retweet this if he wasn’t dancing on Dancing With The Stars Season 14? This guy is going to give us serious heart palpitations with all of this TEASING!! With the added anticipation of Madonna dancing in the Super Bowl, I’m dying here. 😯 Bring it Sam or ELSE!
