DWTS Alumni Ron Artest, Jenny Garth To Star In New Nancy Grace Lifetime Movie

Ron Artest and Jenny Garth will have parts in a new movie adaptation of Nancy Grace’s first novel, “The Eleventh Victim”. As you know, all three were once contenders on Dancing With The Stars (although in different seasons). The new movie is set to premiere in the fall on the Lifetime Movie Network. Below are more details from TV Guide.

How, you may ask, did this highly unusual bit of casting come about? Turns out World Peace and Grace became fast friends during their stint on Season 13 of Dancing With the Stars. (Garth is also a Dancing alum.) The Garlan character “is very dear to my heart,” says Grace, who authored The New York Times best-selling novel based on her real-life experiences and serves as one of the film’s executive producers. “I wanted to cast someone for whom I have a true fondness. Metta World Peace was my first pick.”

The Eleventh Victim follows Garth’s character as she pursues the conviction of serial killer Clinton Burrell Cruise. The case becomes personal for Hailey when she is physically attacked by Cruise in open court. While still recovering, Hailey moves to New York and begins a new career as a therapist. When her clients start to turn up dead — with the murderer using the same M.O. as the Atlanta killer she put behind bars — she is forced to help catch a cold-blooded killer who could very well make her his next target.

It’s so cool to see Nancy, yet again, broadening herself. She’s more than just an outspoken, former prosecuting attorney with a controversial talk show. I gained whole new respect for her after she did Dancing With The Stars. Here’s to her new movie!

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

Kendra Wilkinson Would Dance Again If DWTS Producers Made The Call, Don’t Count On Julianne Hough

Below is an interesting interview with Julianne Hough at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards this past weekend. Access Hollywood starts out by telling Julianne they know she won’t dance again on Dancing With The Stars, but, they want to know who she’d like to see return for the Dancing With The Stars All-Star Season. Julianne says she’d like to see Mel B, Sabrina Bryan, and maybe Jenny Garth return. Julianne also speaks about the new Nicholas Sparks movie “Safe Haven” she’s just signed for. For those hoping for Julianne to return for the All-Star season, I wouldn’t count on it? “Safe Haven” starts filming next month according to US Magazine. She’s going to have her plate full.

Also at the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards was former Dancing With The Stars contender Kendra Wilkinson. She told Access Hollywood she’d be willing to come back for the Dancing With The Stars All-Stars if producers made the call. Below is more….

“I am happy doing my new show, ‘Kendra On Top,’” she laughed, referring to her WeTV program. “But, you know what? ‘Dancing with the Stars’ was fun. If they consider me an ‘All-Star,’ of course I’ll do it, but if not, I won’t cry.”

Kendra hit the Guys Choice Awards with husband Hank Baskett, but he revealed he isn’t as good of a dancer as his wife.

“Now I have to go take dance lessons by myself to keep up with her, so I’ve gotta work on trying to play catch-up,” he laughed.

And, apparently, Hank has a lot of catching up to do. Asked if he was good dancer, Kendra replied. “Not really, no.”

“He’s OK. He’s not the worst,” she added, with a laugh.

Hmmm,…Kendra again anyone? No…just no. 8O
