The DWTS Season 23 Partnerships – Who’s Dancing with Who?? Guesses?

As of this moment – Friday Night – we don’t have any confirmed pairings. But we do have a few good ideas based on DancingABC clues, history, rumor, twitter…and just plain guessing. πŸ™‚ So, Vogue and I are going to put it down on paper – what we think, guesses we’ve seen on twitter, what we would like…all of the above. Just for fun. We’ll find out on Tuesday for sure, but write it down now so we can all see how we do. πŸ˜‰ We reserve the right to edit as we get more information…or reality sets in through leaks and such. πŸ˜‰

Here are the confirmed pros (I’m including Mark Ballas cuz I think he’s in, as does @DWTSGossip, even though we have no “confirmation”) – keep in mind there could be more. George Pennachio seems to think so. When I have a partner next to a pros name, that’s someone that’s been confirmed by DWTSGossip or a leak. If there’s a question mark, I just ain’t sure.

The Men
Derek – Marilu Henner
Maks – Amber Rose
Val – Laurie Hernandez
Gleb – ??
Sasha – Terra Jole
Artem – Maureen McCormick

The Women
Lindsay – Calvin Johnson ??
Witney – Vanilla Ice ??
Emma – Rick Perry
Sharna – James Hinchcliffe
Allison – Babyface Edmonds
Jenna – Jake Austin ??

Vogue:
Derek – I haven’t a clue but, he’s looking for his Cleopatra? Hmmmm…..
Mark – I think it might be the new rumor of Beverley Mitchell who is said to be in talks and not signed yet. I’m having serious Willow Shields flashbacks too and I’m loving it.
Maks – Amber Rose! We’ve seen a picture of them together and then there is this snap.
Val – Ok, I’m going with Lauren Henderson for all the reasons in Court’s rumor post. Plus, George P says there is more than one Olympian dancing.
Gleb– My guess is JoJo Fletcher and what a beautiful pairing this would make. I love the video in this post.
Sasha – Terra Jole! He teased his partner has a show on Wednesday’s and guess what? “Little Women” airs on Wednesday nights. I can’t wait to see how he is inspired from her and he’s happy and excited which makes me happy and excited too.
Artem – Legendary Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick. One of my wishes forever and they even look a like. And shame on his fans for having such a meltdown on this being she’s 60. “60” is only a number. Just ask Jennifer Grey, Bill Engvall, and Tommy Chong made it or almost made it to the finals.

Lindsay – Well, it can’t be Tim Tebow like some fans speculate on since he wasn’t born in Georgia. I’m going to guess that it might be Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson since he WAS born in Georgia. Hubby will be so happy if we have another football player dancing. My Dad will be watching too in heaven. I just know it.
Witney – Not sure on this one (more below)
Emma – Is she paired with a Republican? If so, I’m hoping for someone tall, dark, and handsome…..someone like Donald Trump Jr.! Can you imagine? Ssssssssss!!
Sharna – Ryan Lochte because I think they would look striking together. Then again, Sharna says she’s in Texas, so, maybe Witney has Ryan instead? Geez, this show keeps us guessing.
Allison – Babyface Edmonds! Coupled with Allison’s creativity and his ability in making Grammy winning songs and videos, they will be off the hook as Lea posted in comments. He’s so handsome and has infinite amounts of class, swagger, and charm too.
Jenna – Jake T. Austin. I just think they’d make a great fit. What a great first partner for Jenna too. I hope she shines out there like she did on the last DWTS Tour.

Heidi:
Derek – the only guesses I’ve seen have been Lindsey Stirling and various olympians. Lindsey is going on a world tour, which kinda leaves her out. Olympians? Who knows? It would be fun if he had Mckayla Maroney…she of the “sass”. πŸ˜‰ Beverley Mitchell is the type that Derek used to get all the time, early on – married mommies. Β But since Mark hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, maybe she’s dancing with him, since last word was that she was “in talks”.Β Heh…Court just texted me to listen to Becca Tilley’s snapchat to listen for Derek’s voice – she’s with Jojo Fletcher doing a shoot today. Kinda sounds like him, kinda doesn’t….I’ll get the video in a bit.
Mark – Personally, I would bet Mark is the one with the Olympian, but I don’t really know. I’m going to say Laurie Hernandez. Or Beverley Mitchell. πŸ™‚
Maks – I kinda thought that Gleb had Amber Rose, but I guess she’s with Maks, based on that photo.
Gleb – No clue…. How about Emma Samms?
Sasha – Yeah, gotta go with Terra Jole.
Val – Well, it’s gotta be someone with dance experience…Emma Samms had training until she was 15 but that hardly counts. This is an interesting question: with Derek, Maks and Gleb all back, will Val still rate the ringer?? Hmmmm…If I had my way he would get the model who can’t move. But who would that be? I don’t think he has the Olympian..perhaps someone we don’t know about yet?
Artem – Maureen McCormick, who, judging by the photos, I wanna be when I grow up. Dang, woman! Lookin’ good!

Lindsay – Seems pretty certain she has Calvin Johnson.
Witney – Ryan Lochte…although this could be BAD. Neither are the sharpest tools in the shed if you get my meaning.
Emma – My first thought was republican…but not a weasely Trump boy. Ugh. Spare us all more of that drivel. I’m thinking someone who’s been around a while and who isn’t in prison (that was an obscure Tom Delay reference for you young’uns). πŸ˜€ But if not a republican, then what’s the deal with the Elephant? I actually looked up “Unforgettable Elephant” because DancingABC uses that word in their tweet and got Martyn Colbeck, an award winning wildlife photographer. Much more palatable than a politician. πŸ˜‰ Someone else on twitter mentioned Jack Hanna to DWTSGossip which is a much more relevant celeb than Martyn.
Sharna – She’s been spotted in Texas, where the speculation brings us back to racecar driver James Hinchcliffe – why yes, there is a big race in Texas tonight and there is apparently a Arrow Electronics fire suit in the background of her periscope according to Courtney’s – I don’t even know what that is. πŸ™‚ Could be another driver, I suppose…definitely going to say James or another racer.
Allison – seems pretty certain that she’s dancing with Babyface Edmonds
Jenna – yep, going to agree with Jake T. Austin.

Kym Johnson Hangs Up Her Dancing Shoes, But, Hopes To Be On DWTS All Access

Kym Johnson tells ET Online she won’t be dancing on Dancing With The Stars. However, we might see her on DWTS All Access. Below is more including thoughts from Robert who would love to dance again on the show. So cute…

Herjavec, where she said she isn’t returning to the hit ABC show.

“I love the show and I love to still be part of it but, you know, I still want to hang up my dance shoes and what a way to end,” Johnson told ET when asked if she’s appearing on the new season. “It’s like, ‘thank you, Dancing With the Stars.”

However, the fan favorite – who’s also a judge on the Australian version of the show — said she still might be appearing on the DWTS: All Access online show. Johnson started appearing on the DWTS in 2006, and has won the coveted mirror ball trophy twice — in season 9 with Donny Osmond, and season 12 with NFL pro Hines Ward. She sat out season 10 and took a break after season 16, making a return four seasons later, when she was partnered with Herjavec.

Hilariously, it’s actually 53-year-old Herjavec who’s eager to get back into the ballroom. The businessman was paired with Johnson for season 20 — when sparks obviously flew between the two. They ended up finishing in sixth place.

“I am going to go back and dance with somebody else so I can win the mirror ball this time,” he joked about being “distracted.” “I blame you Kym. Yeah, if you weren’t there I would of won.”

Dancing with the Stars Season 23 – PRO WATCH!!

Welp. I must say, my snark is extremely rusty because it’s been on vacation. πŸ™‚ I’ll see if I can whip something out before the end of this post.

So, you may have seen in an earlier post that Val blessed us with several nuggets that only a C-bro can knock out, strongly implying (well, out right proclaiming) that he’s already connected with his partner. Hey, if you don’t have choreo, you work with what you have. πŸ˜‰ Plus he’s not going to go “Hollywood” (like his brother and everyone else on this show – as if it were a bad thing – it’s called a CAREER after dancing).

I am working on the assumption (despite what he says) that Derek is out for good. I think the only way we see him again is if he gets an unexpected hole in his schedule and he’s afraid of boredom and they offer him a shit ton of money. And this *could* happen, although I wouldn’t count on it, since he was talking about “fun projects” in his off time. That said, “Singin’ in the Rain” has been delayed from late 2016 – early 2017 to solidly 2017. No date yet…because they don’t have a theater, because Broadway is doing well per Derek. This means, if we don’t see him in the Spring 2017 season, he won’t be on the show until 2018 at the earliest. Keep in mind, also, that I’m talking about him competing. He could certainly do some pro dances. Kinda surprised he hasn’t popped up on SYTYCD yet, honestly. Non-compete clause?? Read more..

DWTS Kym Johnson Robert Herjavec Wedding Countdown – Bridesmaids, Bridal Shower, Vegas Celebration, Wedding Dance Info, And More

The countdown has begun for Dancing With The Stars Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec’s wedding. Below are some details from People (be sure to read the link for more). You can also view videos and some pics of the Bridesmaids. Note how Cheryl Burke and Carson Kressley are part of the group. Edyta Sliwinska, Anna Trebunskaya, and Florence Henderson were also at the Bridal Shower. Their smiles say it all! Entertainment Tonight also did a segment last night according to Abby. They posted this link at their site. Right now, it shows an error. Maybe they will fix it later. Here’s to Kym and Robert and this magnificent wedding!

As the couple gears up to exchange vows, Johnson and Herjavec plan to relive their Dancing with the Stars days with a choreographed dance routine to LunchMoney Lewis’ “Bills,” which backed up their first-ever routine as partners on DWTS.

“We’re kind of reprising that dance, but with our bridal party instead of professional dancers,” Johnson says of the performance – though Herjavec chimed in: “Everybody in your side of the bridal party is a professional dancer.”

Fellow DWTS alum Cheryl Burke will join the routine alongside Johnson, 39, and Herjavec, 53.

Herjavec says he, Johnson and the rest of the bridal party have been practicing for a “long time” and the couple will even whip out a more intimate number on their big day.

“We’re doing a romantic dance first to ‘At Last’ by Etta James,” Herjavec reveals.

“Then the bridal party are going to come on to the dance floor and we’re going to be doing a fun dance that’s going to surprise everyone I hope,” Johnson adds. “So, it’s getting everyone on board though. I think the bridal party are a little freaked out that we’re making them dance.”
