Zendaya Hopes To Bring A Unique Perspective To The DWTS Judging Panel, Teasers From Jodi Sweetin

Just a couple of more last minute things before Dancing With The Stars. First, below are some thoughts from Zendaya about judging Dancing With The Stars tonight. She’s hoping to bring a unique perspective to the judging panel tonight…

“A lot of people think I’m going to just praise everyone, but I definitely am going to give some criticism if I think it’s warranted,” the Disney Channel star tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The K.C. Undercover star knows she’s not as versed in the technical aspects of ballroom as her fellow judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tolioni, but she believes she brings a unique perspective to the panel.

“I’ve been a contestant before so I can understand what it takes to get out there on that stage in a way that none of the other judges can,” says the actress, who placed second to Kellie Pickler in 2013.

Secondly, Jodie Sweetin has written a new blog for People. Below is a take describing her Disney dance with Kep Motsepe tonight. Be sure to read more at the link.

The dance is super high-energy and fun, but there are a few things that have made this week more nerve-racking than past weeks.

First off, the dance is about 30 seconds longer than our routines have been in the past. That may not sound like a long time, but it’s a ton when you consider our dances were only about a minute until now. At the end of every run-through of the routine, I’m exhausted!

And secondly, we are adding a fun but difficult technical element to our dance – we are going to be dancing with the animated characters from Zootopia.

That meant we had to have our routine locked in early and send video of the rehearsals to the animators so they could prepare the animation.

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 .

US Weekly finally posted the article about Jodi Sweetin dancing on the new season of Dancing With The Stars online which we posted about yesterday via the Daily Mail. Note too how they also report John Stamos and Lori Loughlin have turned down Dancing With The Stars. Dang…I love these two.

Stephanie Tanner is getting her turn in the spotlight. Fuller House’s Jodie Sweetin has signed on for season 22 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, an insider reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Less enthusiastic about hitting the ballroom: Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky. Says a source, “John Stamos and Lori Loughlin have turned down the show.”

DWTS Season 22 Rumor: Has Jodi Sweetin Signed On To Dance For Dancing With The Stars Season 22?

The Daily Mail via US Weekly is reporting Jodie Sweetin has signed on to dance in Dancing With The Stars Season 22. Oh, I hope this is true. She sounded very interested last season when Courtney talked with her. Remember this interview? If not, be sure to see it.

ETA: You can now see the US Weekly article here.

Better crack out those bright blue spandex leggings, because Stephanie Tanner is getting her chance to shine again.

With less than a month until Fuller House hits Netflix, it has been revealed Jodie Sweetin is about to have a very big 2016.

Us Weekly reports the 34-year-old has signed up to be part of the latest season of Dancing With The Stars.

An insider told the magazine that Jodie will be getting her ballroom on come March 21 when season 22 airs on ABC.

Jodie has danced since even before she even appeared on cult hit Full House and her character Stephanie was no stranger to busting out a move or two.

DWTS 13 – Dancing With The Stars Cast 13 Wannabes Starting To Line Up

The Dancing With The Stars Cast 13 “Wannabes” are starting to line up for Season 13. As reported to you earlier, we know Melissa Gilbert very much wants to dance on the show. All it’s going to take is a “phone call”.

Also, Lee Meriwether has also expressed great interest in the past couple of Seasons to dance. Will this be the Season Lee lights us up on the dance floor? I really hope so. Below is a recent tweet Lee posted this past Season when she went to the show. She also mentions wanting actress McKenzie Westmore to do the show with her.

And then there is actress Dee Wallace!! PureDWTS reader Nathan sent us a heads up on this news Monday. Dee appeared on Good Morning America to promote her new book “Bright Light”. At the end of the interview they ask her is she’d like to do Dancing With The Stars. Bashful and with a lot of heart, she replied that she’d love to do the show.

Finally, News Vindication via US Weekly is reporting ‘Teen Mom’ star Maci Bookout is hoping to dance on the show. She and Bristol Palin struck up a friendship last Season. So, could this be a possible contender in the making?

Teen Mom 2 star Maci Bookout is hoping to follow in the footsteps of reality stars Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Kate Gosselin by expressing interest to appear on an upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.

US Weekly reported that Maci has vehemently expressed interest in competing on the show. Then again, who wouldn’t want to get an invitation to compete on one of the world’s biggest stages? The media frenzy surrounding Kate Gosselin’s recent appearance as well as Sorrentino’s has done nothing but enhance their celebrity status.

Let’s also not forget about Colleen Zenk and Jodi Sweetin as well rumored from last Season. Colleen’s team is still campaigning hard for her and we know Colleen is up for this show in more ways than one. This past season Jodi would tweet her thoughts on the show almost every week at her twitter account and some have said she has expressed she’d like to dance with Derek Hough and yet, she follows Maks at her twitter account.

Ok, that’s all for now. So, what do you think of the people above? Would you be open to any or all of them dancing? I like all of them but Maci Bookout. I would think her profile would be repeating Bristol’s too much?

As always, I look forward to your thoughts.xx

Heidi’s Note: I saw this last night from Pro Motocross racer Josh Hansen, which I believe is a joke directed at Louie Vito. But you never know… so just in case…

DWTS12 Finale Week Search Engine Round-Up

 Ok kids, here’s some fun stuff for you to get you prepped for the holiday weekend 🙂 Looks like you guys have got body parts, romance, and casting rumors on the brain again! Gonna be interesting to see what else crops up in the search engine, now that the show is over…I have a feeling it’s gonna be pretty random…can’t wait! 😀

Who is Chelsie dating?

Beats me.  She’s been linked by the tabloids to just about everyone, from Louis Vito, to Mark, and now to Romeo.  With her, it’s hard telling, since she does an exceptionally good job of keeping her emotions and personal life out of the public eye.  For all we know, she could be dating some good little Mormon boy back home, and all of the above liasons are just red herrings.  But hey – food for thought 🙂

DWTS12 Winner

Hines Ward & Kym Johnson.  In case you’ve been living under a rock 🙂

Maks tattoo

Yep, he has one on his upper left ribcage – I can’t tell exactly what it is, but it appears to be some sort of red, blue…swirly…thing.  It was done by tattoo artist Peter Koskela, and from what I’m gleaning from the Maks boards (which I don’t frequent, so I can’t vouch for their authenticity), it was done during his stint on Bachelor Ukraine.  But that’s all I’ve got…maybe one of the Maksettes can help out?

Jodi Sweetin

She played Stephanie Tanner on Full House, and she was a cast rumor for season 12…which means she could still be a cast rumor for season 13, since it can take a few seasons for these rumors to materialize into something legit.  I’ve heard that she wants Derek as her partner if she does the show, but I’m wondering if they would actually give him to her – seems like the past few seasons, he’s been a bit of a bargaining tool for TPTB to lure big names (Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey) to the show.  If they’re holding out for another BIG name (that is also demanding Derek as their partner), sorry Jodi – you may get stuck with Louis or Tony.   

Kym Johnson abs

Though not quite as awe-inspiring as the Awesome Boobage(TM), they, along with Kym’s legs, are one of the 7 Wonders of the World. I wish I could say that there was some magical trick Kym has for getting a taut tummy that I could share with the rest of us normal folk, but according to iFit & Healthy, it sounds like Kym’s hot bod is just the result of a lot of exercise with a personal trainer. However, I do know that a lot of the pros on the show (Karina in particular) are pretty fond of the It Cosmetics Abs in a Box Kit – so if you’d rather fake it than put in the time at the gym, I say go for it 😉

Chelsea Kane-Mark Ballas romance

*sigh* REALLY, guys? Officially, Chelsea is dating Stephen CollettiMark is officially/unofficially/who knows/etc. dating Pia Toscano (or is he…?).  Yes, Chelsea & Mark got smoochy in some of their routines. Yes, Chelsea is the featured girl in Mark’s “Hotwire” video. But they’re both denying any hanky-panky.  Let’s put this one to bed, PUH-LEASE.

Mike Catherwood naked/nude/shirtless

You little horndogs 😉 Not that I blame you…Mike’s bod is indeed a hot one.  However, shirtless pix of Psycho Mike are a rareity (for whatever reason, dude doesn’t like to show off his goods – lord knows why), let alone nude ones.  But I did manage to dig up a pretty good shirtless one snapped by TMZ as Mike was running on the beach in LA.  Mmmm mmmm mmm…I dunno about you guys, but god I love a well-muscled guy with a sprinkling of tats!
