DWTS Season 14 – Oh Come On, That’s Not Gonna Happen! Chapter 3

In case you missed chapter 1 and chapter 2,  this is a series where I talk about what I see on Twitter that makes me roll my eyes in exasperation or laugh…or just groan in disbelief. :-)

Once again, we have a series of people who don’t seem to read and comprehend the written word all that well…or perhaps they just read too fast. Whatever the case may be, they are a tad annoying.  Why, you ask?  Well, Huffington Post (awesome site, btw) publishing a post that they very clearly call their “wish list” is NOT a listing of people who are going to be on the show, OR a listing of people actually rumored to be on the show. Please look up the words “wish” and “list”. Thank you. :-)

And really, how many times do Tebow and his reps need to say he’s NOT doing the show before people chill on that rumor? Getting sick of his name in my tweetdeck.

What else is annoying me?? What’s “not gonna happen”??  Spamming everyone and their freakin brother with “tell them we want Marina Sirtis on DWTS” is NOT going to actually get her on the show. What it will do is piss me, and everyone else who does twitter searches, off…in the extreme. Especially when your Twitter icon is annoying as some are.  Really, just stop. I already don’t like this person or her fans and I don’t even know who she is…oh, and by the way – she will NOT have an impact on ratings one way or the other.  Every year a fan group makes this claim….and it’s usually the fans of someone I’ve never even heard of before. Go figure.

Who wants to explain to Xtina’s manager that “The Voice” did not beat DWTS in ratings on Monday night??  Do I have to say anymore?? He’s probably comparing The Voice’s numbers to those of DWTS last season…still wrong. Unless they’re both on at the same time, you have no business comparing the numbers. When they were on at the same time, DWTS was beating The Voice easily.  BTW, hell of a lead in, that Super Bowl.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the Voice. It’s far superior to anything I saw of the X-Factor (admittedly, I got bored early on that one) and it’s different enough from AI that I enjoyed it on Sunday night. But I don’t like misleading tweets like his – it’s what starts turning all the “wish lists” into serious rumors. Very misleading.

Oy Veh – sudden increase in the need to campaign for pros happened just yesterday. Namely Chelsie and Dmitry. People – your campaigning won’t be any more effective than that done by the fans of Marina Sirtis. For one thing, they appear to outnumber you (even though it’s more repetition by a few tweeters than it is a massive number of people tweeting about it, if you follow me) and for another…if they don’t find them a match, they don’t find them a match. Usually, it’s that simple.  I think Tristan’s appearance is a bit detrimental to Dmitry, even though I think he’s an inch or two taller than Tristan is, because Tristan appears to have wide appeal. Chelsie I’m not worried about. I think she’ll be back.  But seriously – the show is watched by about 20 million people.  Five or five hundred tweets ain’t gonna sway them.

Okay, now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, it’s back to pro watch. :-)

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 14 – Oh Come On, That’s Not Gonna Happen! Chapter 2

The second chapter in what will likely be a very long book. :-) In case you missed chapter 1, this is a series where I talk about what I see on Twitter that makes me roll my eyes in exasperation or laugh…or just groan in disbelief. :-)

Today’s edition of OCOTNGH (heh) revolves around the inability of many Twitter users to READ and comprehend the written word. Seriously, this edition scares me. Let’s do it in list form, shall we??

1) Michelle Obama is NOT going to be on DWTS, partnered with Maks. If you read that on the internet, you need to look up some of the words in the article – mainly the word “Spoof”. If someone you know and/or love told you that she was going to be on DWTS, buy them a dictionary. If you believed them…what the hell is wrong with you?? :-) Here is the source of this particular bit of silliness —-> Michelle Obama on DWTS

Some of you are probably thinking, “Heidi is full of crap, no one REALLY believed that story.” How much would you like to bet? Any Mitt Romneys out there willing to part with 10K?? :-D

2) When someone who happens to be an actor/former co-worker (Brent Spiner) of Marina Sirtis urges people (via his twitter account) to “vote for Marina Sirtis to be on DWTS” he is NOT saying “Marina Sirtis is going to be on Season 14 of DWTS”. Come on. Go look at his twitter time line and you will clearly see that he’s campaigning just like all her other fans. Geez, people. I’m looking for real rumors – not people who can’t read chattering false info across the internet.

3) Get a sense of humor and/or actually WATCH the video where Derek says one of his partners had him crying every night. Geez, that was Derek being goofy. Hardly headline news. :::rolls eyes:::

4) Erin Andrews showing up at Maks’ birthday party doesn’t mean she’s “the one” and madly in love with him.  Kirstie, Tony, and Chelsie were there too, just sayin’. Are they all in love with him? Shippers. They’re enough to make a person nuts. Especially when the Erin shippers and Kirstie shippers fight. Oh wait, that’s actually kinda fun… :-)

5) To those complaining on Twitter that GSN is airing DWTS which “isn’t a game show!” – get a dictionary. From Websters (and really, this should be obvious to most), one of the definitions of “game”:  a physical or mental competition conducted according to rules with the participants in direct opposition to each other. Duh.  Synonyms of “game” include: bout, competition, contest, event, match, matchup, meet, sweepstakes (also sweep-stake),tournament, tourney.  Anyway you look at it DWTS does belong on the Game Show Network. It is either a dance competition or a popularity contest…or both. Note both in the synonyms.  :-)  Just because some dude in polyester pants doesn’t have the chance to win a million bucks doesn’t mean it’s NOT a game.

6) Saying that Giulianna Rancic has been approached to be on DWTS is NOT the same thing as “Giulianna is going to be on DWTS”.  Can you tell this annoys me? :-)

I sense number 6 will be a recurring theme right up to the moment that they announce the cast for Season 14. :::sigh:::  Either the internet is like a massive game of Telephone…or people don’t read well. Or some mixture of both.

DWTS Online Campaigning For Season 14: Beth Chapman, Marina Sirtis, Greg Louganis

It seems every season we see massive online campaigning for certain celebrities to dance on Dancing With The Stars. Well, season 14 is no different. For instance, I’ve noticed a lot of twitter chat for Beth Chapman (aka @MrsDogC) to dance on Dancing With The Stars. In case you don’t know, Beth is the wife to the “Dog The Bounty Hunter. Below is a recent picture of the two….

Would she be cool? I can see her paired up with Louis.

Another popular celebrity campaign is for Star Trek’s Marina Sirtis! This isn’t a new campaign. Her fans were campaigning hard for her last season as well. She has expressed great interest in doing the show. In fact, below is a quote from Trek News before last season started.

HERE is a quote from her twitter from a few days ago. Will Season 14 finally be Marina’s time to shine on the dance floor?

“I’ve been trying to get on Dancing With The Stars for the past 2 years as it’s one of my favorite shows,” Sirtis told TrekNews.net. “it’s time Star Trek was represented [on the show]” she added.

“I’m sure we have as many followers as the reality shows that are represented every year.” Sirtis said.

On the topic of how a viral Twitter campaign began to have her nominated for the Dancing With The Stars, Sirtis said “I mentioned my desire to appear on the show at a couple of conventions and of course the fans picked up the ball and ran with it.”

I’d love it if this were to happen! She definitely has a dancer body too. I still vision her with Tony like last season.

Now here is an interesting candidate and his name has come up before in many of our previous reportings…and that is Olympic Swimming Champion Greg Louganis!! Even more interesting yet is that Greg was pictured with some of the pros in Cabo San Lucas last June. Now he has recently expressed interest in dancing on Dancing With The Stars. Below is a take from LgbtqNation. What a cool message he’d have for the show too. I see Anna with Greg.

“Being on Dancing With The Stars is more than me being on the show, it sends a positive message — an ‘It Gets Better’ message. And that message is still important- kids are still losing hope. I want to do what I can for them.”

There have been gay men on DWTS before — Lance Bass, Carson Cressley and Louis Amstel — and Chaz Bono broke the transgender barrier last season. But if his bid is successful, Louganis would be the first openly HIV positive contestant. And it’s about time, say HIV activists.

“In a generation that is trying to end AIDS, it’s great to have openly HIV positive sports figures like Greg Louganis in the spot light,” said Tom Donohue, founder and executive director of Who’s Positive, an HIV/AIDS advocacy and awareness organization.

“Not only can his presence be a reminder for folks to be tested, his appearance on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ can reemphasize how those living with HIV/AIDS can live normal and active lives.” said Donohue, who is also on the board of directors for The National Association of People with AIDS (NAPWA).

So, what do you think if any of these three were picked to dance? Who do you see them paired with? Stay tuned as Heidi is planning a “That’s Not Going To Happen” post again soon! ;)

SPECIAL NOTE:: THIS IS NOT A “CAMPAIGNING” POST for fans to campaign for their favorite celebrity. It’s just a news post announcing the popular online campaigning going on currently, what you think of the above three celebrities, and who you’d like to see them paired with. If you use the comment section to campaign, your post will be deleted. You can do campaigning at the Dancing With The Stars Official site here.

Mark Ballas To Choreograph “A Snow White Christmas” (DWTS Season 13 Wannabe Marina Sirtis Plays One of Leads)

Mark Ballas is going to choreograph a new musical called “A Snow White Christmas” which will premiere over the 2011 holiday season. The production will be produced by Bonnie Lythgoe. It will feature ‘family-friendly’ magic with a comedic twist and modern music which will include Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, The Village People’s “YMCA”, and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Sounds just like the kind of project Mark would want to get his teeth into. Interesting Note: One of the leads will be played by Marina Sirtis who has recently expressed a strong desire to dance on Dancing With The Stars this next season. Dates and details below from Playbill.com for those interested.

Lythgoe Family Productions and Magic Pictures International’s 2011 holiday season of traditional British family Panto will include the premiere of A Snow White Christmas and the return engagement of A Cinderella Christmas.

A Snow White Christmas is scheduled to run Nov. 30-Dec. 18 at the El Portal Theatre, while A Cinderella Christmas will be seen Dec. 22, 2011-Jan. 8, 2012, at The Scherr Forum Theatre in Thousand Oaks.

Neil Patrick Harris has signed on to star in the on-screen special-guest role of The Magic Mirror in Snow White opposite Marina Sirtis, of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” fame, as The Wicked Queen. The production will be helmed by Bonnie Lythgoe and choreographed by Mark Ballas with Michael Orland serving as musical director. An updated version of the classic tale, Snow White features family-friendly magic, a comedic twist and modern music, including Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” The Village People’s “YMCA” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

For tickets for the run of shows, be sure to visit Mpient.com.

Heidi’s Note: You may remember that Mark did last years Cinderella at the El Portal with Bonnie Lythgoe. Derek was originally scheduled to choreograph but had a schedule conflict of some sort, so Mark took over. It appears to have paid off a bit, eh? :-)

Dancing With The Stars 13 Cast Rumors And Wannabes Marina Sirtis, Velvet Sky, Snooki, Rob Kardashian and Christina Milian?

What do you think of Snooki, Rob Kardashian and Christina Milian dancing on the next Season of Dancing With The Stars? According to US Weekly, this could be something in the making. Mike Tyson’s name comes up again too. Here is a take from the link.

Snooki isn’t the only reality star being considered: Rob Kardashian, 24, is also in discussions with the network. “Rob is such a low-key guy, so it would be interesting to see if he’d come out of his shell,” a source says. (Here’s hoping that he fares better than his sister Kim Kardashian, 30, who competed in 2008 and was kicked off on the third week!)

Other potential hoofers? Mike Tyson, 45, “is being considered,” explains a second insider (though the boxer’s rep says this is “not true”). Plus, producers are talking to R&B singer Christina Milian, 29. “She’s a possibility!” the source tells Us.

I hate to say it, but, I really hope it isn’t something in the making. I think this would be the most lackluster bunch in the show’s history if it comes true. :|

Heidi mentioned in another thread that she thought she had reported earlier on Snooki rumored to be dancing before. When both of us did a search, we couldn’t find it, but, it’s amazing how much Snooki’s name came up in the results. Has Heidi had a psychic dream or vision instead? I wouldn’t be surprised. Time will tell. 8O

Also, add pro wrestler Velvet Sky to the Wannabe List. Check out this article from Wrestling News mentioning it and a recent tweet;


Thanks to everyone who’s been voting for me to be on @ Keep voting as much as u can if u wanna see it happen! http://t.co/PyGlKte
@VelVelHoller
Velvet Sky

Another wannabe is Star Trek’s Marina Sirtis. She expressed wanting to be on the show at an Albuquerque Comic Expo recently. Since then, fans have started a page for her at Facebook.

She’s beautiful. I can see her with Tony?

So, what do you think of all of these possible contenders? Excited much …or uhh, not? Who do you seem them paired with?
