Dancing with the Stars Season 10 – Rumor Roundup

….and a couple new rumors as well. The big one that I just saw today, that requires a bathtub of salt, is Jonathan Frakes from Star Trek will be on this season. This is a random twitter rumor – if it solidifies more, I’ll let you all know. :-)

Okay, that was quick – this rumor about Jonathan Frakes seems to originate from a DWTS Blog and also included Genie Francis. It’s third or fourth person so…not likely. But hey, I do well on getting the cast right because I report EVERYTHING I hear. :-)

Regular readers of this blog know we post all the gossip we hear about the new casts of DWTS each season. Every season there are people we hear solid (and not so solid) rumors about. The thing about this show is that often someone is rumored before one season yet shows up on a later season. So we thought it would be a good idea to recap rumors we heard a while ago that haven’t panned out yet. Just revisit them and see if they still seem likely. So, here we go!

Bethany Frankel - from Real Houswives. I’m thinking no right now. Never heard anything about her other than the initial interview where she said she would love to do it.

Suge Knight - still possible, IMO. Seems like something the producers would pull.

Danny Gokey – former AI contestant.  I’m thinking no, although it’s more likely this season than last since I don’t know how much post-Idol success he’s had.

Erin Andrews – ESPN Reporter and one of John’s favorites. :-) She was rumored a long time ago for 2010.  I don’t know if this one is still possible, if she is still interested in doing it.

Kurt Angle – TNA Superstar, it seemed fairly solid that Kurt was at least contacted about DWTS. What the end result of that was, who knows?

Dominique Moceanu – Olympian that was photographed with Tony Dovolani.  Simple fan photo? Or something more?

Vera Wang – the wedding dress designer rumor came from Marc Malkin from E! so I tend to give it a bit more weight than your average rumor.  I could be wrong and Marc could get his info the same place I do – Twitter. :-) That said – that rumor got kinda solid as we reported on June 17, 2009.

Lou Ferrigno – Lou was seriously blowing his own horn on this. He said he was in the running. Now, did his spilling the beans kill his chances, or did it just not work out for last season?  I believe he was also the one who got really pissed off when he wasn’t picked, so maybe that ruined his chances.

Okay, that’s all for right now!  There are a LOT more, so I”ll continue tomorrow in part II. I also have to continue my SCD versus DWTS series – I haven’t forgotten. You’ve been warned. :-)

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 9 Cast – Rumor and Innuendo

Well, you know, I called this one a few weeks ago!!  Lou Ferrigno on DWTS - I mentioned it on June 30th.  Yeah, until it comes out of Tom B’s mouth on August 17th, several grains of salt are being consumed.  :-)

 Also, going way out on a limb, I’m going to predict Jordan Knight of New Kids on the Block. Why? Just random tweets, including those from Jordan himself. I could be way off base. We’ll see.

I’ve also seen twitter campaigns for Dean McDermott (aka Mr. Tori Spelling) taking shape.  What the campaigners don’t realize is that it isn’t up to Dean, it’s up to the producers.  But hey, I want David Duchovny or Adrian Grenier on DWTS, so I can’t pick on them.  :-)

As David points out in the comments, there is also a growing campaign for Beth Horn (aka Venom) from American Gladiators to be on the show.  I really don’t know that these campaigns actually work. Does Beth Horn WANT to be on DWTS? Does Dean McDermott? That, and getting the producers to buy it, are two big things standing in the way. But, good luck and happy campaigning. :-)
